Republican’s Announce Alternative to Tax, Spend, & Big Government

February 2, 2010 Leave a comment

THE ROADMAP PLAN

The President submitted his budget this week – and it’s more of the same – TAX AND SPEND.  The Republican’s also announced their plan – but you won’t hear about it on the news.

I think the Republican “Roadmap for American’s Future”  is ambitious and not without shared sacrifice.  I don’t agree with every point – but I think it is a solid plan and points to a better direction for our country.   If you support it or are opposed to it let Congress know!

What are the alternatives?  If anyone has a side by side comparison of the current system, the President’s plan, and the Republican alternative that would be great to see.  We need to have real facts and information.

The GOP  plan is presented in short video format – easy to follow and understand and can be found here.  Takes about 5 minutes to watch all of them.

We need to get smart about the alternatives America – we need changes that will work.

All comments and additional links are welcome.

Domestic Terrorists

January 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Not only are we under attack by Muslim Islamic Jihadist’s around the world who want to murder our military personnel and blow up civilian buildings and planes, we now face increasing attacks by Domestic Terrorists trained and based in Washington D.C.

Their weapon of choice?  Higher spending and higher taxes.

We must destroy the enemy.  Don’t listen to what they say – watch what they do.  Speak up everyday – they are on the ropes, don’t give them a break!

Senator Webb Responds – says Health Care bill contains a “multi-state government-administered insurance option”

Dear Mr. Edwards:
 
Thank you for contacting my office regarding health care reform. I appreciate your taking the time to share your views.
 
I voted in favor of health care reform legislation in the Senate. Despite my disappointment with some provisions in the bill, as well as the process under which it was considered, the final package presented to the Senate reflects many improvements that take into consideration the concerns that I and others brought forward during the debate.
 
Our country needs health care reform. Most importantly, the status quo of our present system, which is damaging our national economy at many levels, is unacceptable. Spiraling costs for health care have placed our biggest industries at a severe competitive disadvantage worldwide, and have become unsustainable for many small businesses. In addition, the billions of dollars spent on medical care for the uninsured is a burden borne not only by government at all levels, but also by tens of millions of others through higher taxes and insurance rates.
 
I have stated on several occasions my concerns that the Obama administration should have begun the health care process with a clear, detailed proposal, from which legislation could then be put into place. Instead, the legislation is the product of five separate congressional committees, three in the House and two in the Senate. I and my staff have carefully worked through thousands of pages of sometimes contradictory information, and have done our best to bring focus to the debate and clarity to the final product.
 
As the debate moved forward in the Senate, I repeatedly took a number of difficult votes, often breaking with my party, in order to strengthen the bill. The bill passed by the Senate addresses a number of the most troubling concerns. The new language demands greater accountability from health insurers. It reins in excessive overhead costs that go strictly to administration instead of patient care. It immediately makes available a health care tax credit for small businesses. It forces competition through a multi-state government-administered insurance option. It immediately bans ‘pre-existing conditions’ exclusions for children. It incorporates a measure that I sponsored to reward quality, instead of quantity, of Medicare services offered to patients.
 
The independent Congressional Budget Office now estimates that the reforms contained in this legislation will lower the federal budget deficit by $133 billion over the next ten years, and by more than $1 trillion over the decade following.
 
Now that two different pieces of legislation have successfully emerged in each house of Congress, I intend to examine closely the version produced at the next stage of the legislative process. Significant deviations from the core principles I insisted upon in the Senate compromise will lead me to withhold my support.
 
As the Senate continues to debate health care reform, please be assured that your views will be very helpful to me and my staff. I hope that you will continue to share your thoughts with us in the years ahead.
 
Thank you again for your interest in this important matter.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Jim Webb
United States Senator

Vote the Bums Out

January 7, 2010 1 comment

I’m getting more and more emails and participating in conversations daily with everyone I know who say  “Vote the Bums Out!”  Is there anyone out there in America who thinks their congressional representative is worth a damn?   I don’t know of anyone.  I think most of the people in Congress are criminals.  One way or another we need to take them out of office. They are liars and pathetic losers. My congressman is Eric Cantor – Republican – VA.  He’s such an idiot that if Obama was a Republican, Cantor would vote for all this nonsense just to follow the party line.  The man has no principles.  He has no thought capacity – besides being a blazing idiot, he is Republican establishment all the way and could care less about America – only his reelection.  This bozo has been in Congress for nearly 10 years and his two greatest legislative achievements?  Can’t name them can you – and this guy is one of the top Republicans in the House (I believe he has introduced 2 bills in 10 years – one to rename a post office, and the other for a commemorative coin).

The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean BOTH Houses and I mean Both Major Parties.  I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.

In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; All 435 of them.  One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.

Vote every incumbent out.

And I mean every one of them.  No matter their Party affiliation.

LET’ S TAKE AMERICA BACK.
