What’s Going to Happen to My Canadian Friends?
For years we’ve been protecting our Canadian friends. They live under our military defenses; they enjoy the benefits of our commerce and wealth; they come and go as they want. They’re nice people and great neighbors. I worry about them though because where are they going to go now when they need a doctor?
Yet Another Letter from a Supporter to Gerry Connolly (VA11)
Gerry: The view from my peaceful perch is getting blocked by the reams of paper that is this latest bill on top of the reams of paper that is the Senate bill for which you are being asked to support this weekend. As a simple person running a simple business, I know that the devil is always in the details. When someone presents me with | Read More »

Stop the BS’ers (Big Spenders) With Our Credit Card
There’s no difference between a Democrat and Republican career politician in Congress when it comes to BS’ing (that’s Big Spending and maybe even the other thing too). Despite his self promotion as a fiscal hawk, Republican Senator Jeff Sessions sponsored and approved $85 million per year for five years for the Boys and Girls Club. $2.2 million had already gone to the Washington lobbyist who | Read More »

If It’s Now, Why This?
If it must be now, why this approach to health care reform? It adds another inefficient and unpaid entitlement to our national obligations. Taxes won’t pay for our current entitlements, much less this new one; and citizens will never allow politicians to tax them sufficient to do so. That means we have to borrow the short falls.

Dr.Hsieh’s Moral Case Against Health Care
Dr. Hsieh is correct in his fine post on Pajamas Media. By linking their Health Care bill to the moral cause of providing medical services to the needy, the proponents can side step any “economic or corruption issues.” The argument against the Health Care bill cannot be won with just economic or corruption issues .The only way Americans can protect their long-term access to quality medical | Read More »
Moderate Reasons for Moderate Democrats to Vote No
If they are listening, here are three moderate reasons for moderate Democrats to vote no on the Health Care bill: Republican extremes want private market forces to solve every problem; Democrat extremes want the Federal Government to administer every system. Neither of these two approaches will work for health care. The lack of a single Republican supporter of the present legislation clearly shows that it | Read More »
