Town Hall Feedback

letter-writingMany of you went the distance and participated in Town Hall events during the Congressional August Break. We are very anxious to hear about your experiences and feedback that you have about the events, Congressmen’s positions, etc. Obviously, Health Care Reform has been the predominate topic, but there have been some discussions on other crucial topics such as Cap and Trade, Economic Stimulus, Forclosures, etc. We want to hear from you on any of these topics!

Enjoy Your Last Term

One of the more interesting developments surrounding the “health care” debate is the incredible inability of the left to read, understand and consider the mood of the general electorate.  The town hall meetings being held across the country embody the nation’s mood more than anything that’s happened in years, perhaps decades.  The general population’s mood is sour, concerned, fed-up.

President Obama is hell-bent on getting his health care initiative, or any initiative for that matter, passed.  If anyone disagrees with this, they are branded as part of the problem, and are told to get out of the way.  Speaker of the House Pelosi has suggested that the concerned center-right, that is, the vast majority of the country, is a swastika-carrying band of neanderthals looking to …

Obama Drama

The events of the last couple of weeks surrounding our nation’s capitol in general, and the White House specifically, have been fun to watch.  It has been my assertion that President Obama, despite his polished rhetoric, is in over his head, and, if given enough time, will prove it.  We’re finally beginning to see signs of his inexperience and, dare I say, incompetence.

First, he tried to ram through Congress an incredibly toxic, poorly crafted, Socialized Health Care bill.  For this administration, it wasn’t enough to be able to spend $1.2 trillion in January without anyone having a chance to read, much less comment on, what was appropriated.  President Obama’s insistence that Congress pass something prior to breaking for the month of August, regardless of …

Health Care Reform: Abortion Funding and Mandates Still on the Table (Promoted From TCR:Iowa)

baby(Originally posted on The Conservative Reader: Iowa) If you don’t already know, we are thoroughly Pro Life here at the The Conservative Reader. From the moment of conception, the rights of every American should extend to even those that are still in the womb, despite the inconvenience they may pose to their mother.

We are also opposed to the current effort in Congress to foist a complex, expensive, invasive and industry-busting piece of legislation in the name of saving lives and improving the health of Americans. We are not opposed to ensuring that all Americans have access to health-care, but this bill, in whatever form it has taken thus far, is not in the best interest America. More on that in the next few …

Health Care Reform Without GOP?

healthcare-reformTom Harkin, Senator from Iowa, proclaimed Wednesday that Congress can proceed and pass Health Care Reform without the help of Republicans, or rather, despite Republican opposition.

While a more detailed examination of the bill that passed its first major hurdle in the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will be forthcoming here, it seems to be worth the time to examine Harkin’s statement as it strikes as a bellweather for our nation’s future.

This is more than a review of the strictly partisan victory Democrats have achieved in Congress, with the 60 votes needed in the Senate to defeat most Republican efforts at stopping or at least slowing actions by Democrats that might normally be nuanced with even the threat of filibuster.  It is …
