  • A Nation at a Critical Crossroads


    I attended the National Republican Congressional Committee Annual meeting and dinner. Here’s what happened.

    The day started with Congressmen Paul Ryan, Ed Royce and Scott Garrett and the topics centered around balancing the budget and limiting the size of the government. Ryan emphasized that we have reached the “tipping point of our government” where one quarter of our GDP is spent by Washington for growing government — unparalleled since WWII. Freddie and Fannie should be privatized. Property values have yet to bottom out and and will go ever lower because of micromanagement of the private sector by an over-inflated government. It was government control of sub prime mortgages through Freddie and Fannie that burst the housing market bubble he contends.

    Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor sent a powerful message that we are a nation at a critical crossroads. Every single American must continue the fight as the country is spiraling downward. Fortunately, the House has voted to repeal Obamacare, stop Cap and Trade in it’s tracks and end net neutrality, which would get government into the business of regulating the internet. The negative force of The Obama Administration is so strong and so pervasive that we must continuously speak up and fight back.

    Buzz-worthy Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey was the evening’s keynote speaker. He delivered a common sense approach to Government: Don’t run it as if you have money growing on trees, but rather return to fiscal conservatism. He  stated that he is not in politics for his own glory, but simply to do the job he was elected to do. Christie reminded everyone also that we have a big job ahead of us and we all had to be and continue being patriots and remind others to do the same — particularly for 2012. Our country, he reminded us, must have a free enterprise system, strong national defense and a to return to a strong economy.

    Christie said that the candidate for the presidency may be present at this dinner. I sincerely hope that he was talking about himself.

  • The Healthcare Law Must Be Repealed


    The Republican Leadership takes charge in the US House of Representatives on January 1, 2011, and I’m buoyed by the line-up. Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor along with Representatives Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy all are on the same page when it comes to supporting a full repeal of ObamaCare.

    Repeal is a noble move, and a politically savvy one. Come January, Americans will be greeted with a host of new taxes and uncertainty. The Healthcare reform alone contains a host of new taxes that will roll out over the next three years. We will also quickly discover what’s to become of the Bush tax cuts. We will find out what the real implications are for businesses and individuals in an already sagging economy with nearly 10% unemployment. And what will become of budget proposals presented by the Fiscal Commission led by Erskine Bowles and former Senator Alan Simpson?
