Fixing Health Care

First, wrap your head around actual facts here, here, and here.

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) provides a laundry list of ways in which the Federal Government interferes with the market for healthcare and insurance.

Here is an example of how the Commonwealth of Virginia is getting out of the way of small businesses, by reducing health insurance policy requirements so that basic plans can be affordable and at least effective in a catastrophe.

The bottom line is that when we hear that the Federal Government needs to take over health care financing (and who pays calls the shots!) that it is a crock of you-know-what and it stinketh mightily. Fedzilla and state governments need to remove impediments, not insert themselves as a monumentally larger impediment.

And it wouldn't hurt if the Federal Government would take border security and the economic problems of illegal immigration seriously. Please, it's been nearly eight years since 9/11, and we are only now getting this report from the Department of Justice?

It seems that conservatives know these things intuitively. Kathy says we must all be too busy working to make a show of force. She may be right.
