More Government Expansion in Kansas In The Form Of Tobacco Taxes

Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson is once again asking lawmakers to increase tobacco taxes by as much as 58%. Parkinson says the money would be used for health care programs or the general fund. Right now smokers pay 79 cents per pack in taxes. By raising the tax to $1.34, KSCW Inc. claims that the tax could bring in as much as $88 million next year. In reality, the tax hike ploy is nothing more than a way to expand government and Kansas cannot afford it.

Health Care Rationing in Virginia: A Success Story

From the business section of the New York Times comes this profile of medical care in Richmond since 1996.Since 1996, the Richmond area has lost more than 600 of its hospital beds, mostly because of state regulations on capacity. Several hospitals have closed, and others have shrunk. In 1996, the region had 4.8 hospital beds for every 1,000 residents. Today, it has about three. Hospital care has been, in a word, rationed.

Told ya so: Nelson admits Dems want Nebraska bribe for everyone

As I predicted a week ago, the Democrat’s budget-busting socialist big-picture plan to have a full government takeover of medicine, with Senator Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) bribe as the camel’s nose under the tent, is coming to light.

Protesting By Candlelight

With less than a week of planning, on a bitterly cold December night, just hours before a Christmas Eve vote, some 40 diehard activists made their way, candles and signs in hand, to Senator Webb's office in Northern Virginia.They hand-delivered letters from friends and neighbors, sang songs to keep warm, and passed out cookies and hot cocoa, while the evening traffic rolled by and drivers honked their support.All to oppose a health care "reform" bill that is rife with political favoritism, unfunded liabilities, and constitutional relativism.

Health Care Battle: What Can I Do This Week?

Even though Congress isn't in town this week, and many people using these normally carefree days between Christmas and New Year's to spend time with family and recharge batteries for 2010, we're hearing from many folks who want to continue the fight against the government takeover of healthcare right through the holidays!  Everyone is wondering, what can I do this week?  Here are three things you can do to keep up the pressure:

We have met the enemy; Tea Party II, here we come

It becomes clearer on a daily basis, from bribes to Senators to get votes to Pelosi’s refusal to let Republicans participate in a press conference in Copenhagen, that America is no longer a Republic, but a dictatorship, at least until the next election.
