GOP Healt Plan

From the Chicago Tribune:
Democrats in the U.S. House and Senate have spent the spring, summer and fall grappling with how to fix the health care system. They're still trying to craft a bill they can sell to Americans -- or even explain in plain English.

And the Republicans? Well, as the minority party, they're mainly on the sidelines. They've become the party of "no," sniping at every Democratic health care reform idea without promoting any of their own. Right?

Not entirely.

Over the summer and fall, Republicans in the House and Senate have introduced six -- yes, six -- health care reform proposals. You didn't hear? Well, those plans didn't produce much of a ripple because Democrats dominate the Congress.

Six Health Care Reform Proposals from the Republican party. I haven't heard about any of them! Have you? It is amazing to me how one sided the media is!

Jim DeMint's blog has the same article.


  1. Yeah, but the Republicans had 12 years of control of the House, 10 or so control of the Senate including multiple terms w/ 100 seat majorities in the house, 1 term with 59 or 60 Senators, and 8 years w/ Bush as president, the first 4 with majorities in both houses (although dwindling), and the only things they came up w/ were Medicare reforms, and nothing for the uninsured. Not sure how serious I consider the proposals made only when reform is fairly inevitable. You know?

  2. I totally agree.

    I really like Jim DeMint though. He came to our church while we lived in South Carolina, and I agreed with everything he said while he was there. I have been watching him since, and he is one of the few politicians that I have seen who will actually answer questions (instead of turning back to "talking points") and works toward policies that match how he answers.

    Like you though, I believe that this reform is inevitable.


Leave a thought of your own.
