As the debate on Health care reform grows and neither side can agree on what is best for America, I think we the people need to make sure that the powers that be really have our best interests in mind.
We should make government be responsible and follow the rules laid out in the constitution. There is nowhere in the constitution that allows government to take money from people for government health care or be in charge of dispensing health care.
With the presentation of the ridiculously long and convoluted 2000-plus page House bill to be voted on shortly there’s one thing that’s certain; this bill will create the biggest boondoggle for citizens ever seen in any government, world-wide.

Health care reform is important and very much needed. It is doubtful that anyone would argue with that but have you ever wondered how our government can promise to cover tens of millions more people and yet it be “deficit neutral” as our president has promised?
I am not racist, and respect the commander in chief. No one should favor the status quo on health care. We do need change in this country, but with Mr. Obama we do not get change, we get Carter polices with a glossy finish.
It’s amazing how worked up some people become over imaginary threats. Despite thorough debunking in the more reputable press, many still torment themselves over worries of “death panels” and “rationing,” should health care reform become a reality in our country.

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold knew what he was in for as he walked toward New Richmond High School last Wednesday. Like at several previous gatherings in other parts of the state, Feingold realized the majority of the people in the crowd were there to talk about health care reform.
