October 13, 2009Dear Senator Graham,As an active blogger for my own site (Rossputin.com), for the Denver Post, FreedomWorks, and the National Taxpayers Union, and as a contributing columnist for Human Events magazine, I spend a lot of time studying the intersection of politics and economics.

A government-run healthcare system favored by many Democrats would be "ruthless" in its treatment of healthcare recipients, warns former House Majority Leader Dick Armey. In a wide-ranging exclusive Newsmax interview, the Texas Republican also said Sarah Palin will prove to be a far better proponent of small-government conservatism than John McCain was in 2008.
