The Republicans had a good idea back in the day requiring people to buy health insurance. This policy was developed because they didn’t feel that they should not have government offer single payer healthcare. Their solution requires people to be responsible and buy health care insurance. This was based on the idea that everyone has a responsiblity to protect themselves, and other people from higher health insurance premiums. During the 93′ healthcare debacle Orin Hatch the right-wing conservative proposed this idea in Clinton’s plan.
Find it weird that once Obama support a Republican developed idea they claim it’s unconstitutional? I don’t.
Cap and Trade
When debate host Gwen Ifill asked Palin whether she supported capping carbon emissions, her answer was unequivocal:
“I do,” she said. “I do.”
Cap and trade, yet again, is a Republican idea. They felt that the government should get out of businesses way, and allow the government to set a cap on the amount of carbon emissions, and then allow the private sector to trade their cap on emissions.
After Obama supports this conservative developed idea Plain blasted her own policy;
“I am deeply concerned about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy,” she wrote on July 14, 2009. “It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.”
Is it policy or poltics? I wonder.
We may have a good development on getting facts into the Republican party, but it may cost the middle class.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., “has never believed that this type of temporary tax relief is the best way to grow the economy,” said spokesman Brad Dayspring.
David Camps of the Ways and Mean Committee even finally admitted that tax cuts add to the deficit. But, here’s the problem they want a tax cut for the middle class to end, but they never mention that their tax cuts for the rich are adding trillion to the deficit. The Bush-era tax cuts will add 4 trillion to the deficit over a ten-year period. Republicans stop this non-sense. They have now shown that they care more about corporation and the richest in America rather than the middle class.
