A Question for Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich
I would like to ask Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich a question. Up until now, the Republican Party has talked about fighting the deficit without tax increases.
Since 2008, they have also fought US health reform while the rest of us in world actually have a free universal healthcare system which is not the best, but it is still there. Almost nightly, they argue against abortion, contraception, and they have no plan for the future. At present, the media bombard the public with bad news from Europe. The Americans cannot afford to be the world’s policeman, but America can use their insight to help shape a future economy, not be a part of the problem.
Dear Paul – If you have followed any of my political postings, or heard my last half hour each month on the radio, besides knowing I worked with Hillary Clinton on Health Care Reform, worked on Safe our Security with Edward Kennedy, and with our President at the time, on the Americans for Disabilities Act, which passed during his time in office. But, let us look at what you said. Health Care Reform as Hillary had set it out to be gave people a choice, covered those without insurance and did not DEMAND we do something, as is the case with both parties. Health is one thing our country lacks, we are far behind other countries, to tell you the truth the only thing that we have are higher payments to insurance companies, and paying outragous costs for medications. Even those who need medication are not receiving it because the newer meds are the most expensive. I could go on and on but I wanted to say, I interviewed all presidential candidates one on one, and interviewed NEWT whom I believe would be placing us close to the bottom of the barrel, and hopefully what he said about getting out of the race is correct. I do believe we are in for some tough times ahead, not all caused by the present administration, but look what he was left with to deal with – no jobs, a war we should never have esculated to the point of year after year, and our own economy falling into the pits. Why, because of oil, why not use the oil we have, there is more then enough in one area for one hundred years. Back to greed. Sincerely, Nancy
I echo much of what Nancy says and opines. We are in capable hands with President Obama; it is the united Republican opposition to his ideas and policies that has been hurting us. Is that not obvious?
I think it is great to connect with writers like Nancy, Andrew, and others too. I walked into a bookstore last year and came across Mitt Romney with his entourage, he was doing a book signing. I was stunned that I simply walked into a store and there sat Romney. He had a moneyed smile too. LOL! I support US healthcare reform, as a Canadian, I feel it is proper to send out such questions to those faces on the TV everyday. Even though they are the evil Republicans, I find the media don’t ask good questions. But if anyone does come across any of these people anywhere, like I did, ask them the tough questions. Remember Canada does not really have a free universal healthcare system. We have a free essential healthcare system. I strongly feel that is the direction we are going in, both Canada and the US. No one should lose a home to pay for a livesaving operation. That is just evil to allow. But keep up the good work in asking the politicians the tough questions.
Paul, good man. Thank you for the reply and for the common sense opinions and suggestions.
Today, I can’t blame the problems we face on the press – (see statement above) and Paul, having worked along side of many political people, and interviewing them one on one, I have to say I knew, knew, who was actually concerned and who was playing politics. You might ask me why? Perhaps growing up in a two family home with a Dad as Mayor, who did what was needed for the people, and not the party – taught me a huge lesson in politics 101. Thanks again for your answer, as Andrew stated above. Sincerely, Nancy
I sure hope America is never part of a world anything. Even the UN is a totally corrupted and usless left wing dead end. Globalism is a failed idea that will never happen except in dreams and maybe books.
The bad news from Europe is directly caused by Governments sticking their noses into peoples lives. By trying to be the perfect socialistic utopias. When you take all the wealth from those who work hard for it they give up and say screw it or they move to places that want their help making jobs and employing people and are smart enough to not tax them to death and pretend there is such a thing as ‘fair share’ other than a flat tax equal to all. THAT is a FARE SHARE.
You run out of taxpayers and you run out of other peoples money and you collapse. It is called reality.
We never needed Government heath care. Until the Government stuck their nose in we didn’t have people dying in the streets, we had no massive bills.
Until the Democrats started lying to the people about how they cared about everyone the prices were reasonable and the care was among the best in the world. Now it is a government subsidized money grab created and fostered by well meaning but ignorant people who have more compassion than brains.
Rose colored glasses do not a better world make, nor do socialists. Never on the face of the earth has there ever been, nor will there ever be, a socialist or communist utopia. just five year failed plan after five year failed plan.
America, without the help of the rest of the world became the greatest and strongest country in the world and if we could do away with all the well meaning but ignorant to real life do gooders, the EPA, Department of MisEducation, and a hundred other unconstitutional agencies, it could be great for another 250 years.
In my pistol packin’ Constitutionalistic Conservative view of course.
