House GOP to Attorney General: Challenge the Federal Health Care Proposal

COLUMBUS—Ohio House Republican members today issued the attached letter to Attorney General Richard Cordray urging him to join their caucus in an effort to challenge the federal health care legislation that is currently being discussed in Washington D.C.

Rep. Sears: Improve Medicaid, Save Tax Dollars

Freedom......a price too high?

" The cloak of freedom is saturated in the blood of Patriots".

I have been pondering this for most of the day. At what point would the typical American of today be willing to give up all he had and all he will ever have or know for an idea, a belief of freedom. Would they rise to the challenge of securing the hopes and dreams of their fore fathers, for their own prodigy? Would their apathy lead them into the chains of socialism? At what point were our Revolutionary Patriots of our nations birth committed to their cause?

What is the real issue?

Is it a black /white issue, is it a male/female issue, is it a liberal /conservative issue, is it a Republican/ Democrat issue or is it really a black male president issue, that is causing the rabid, frenzy of provocative prose coming from the right AND left against President Barack Obama? Is racism so deeply rooted in American's culture that some are losing perspective as to what the issues really are?

Did white America have a "Kumbaya" moment on November 5, 2008 only to wake up on January 22, 2009 with a black man as president and say, "oh, hell to the naw?"

Healthcare question

Ive got an acquaintance who has chosen not to work for a living, and instead live off the government. She also chose to eat herself to an unhealthy state, so because of this, her Medicaid paid doctor advised her to have a bariatric procedure.

She did so about a year and a half ago and has since dropped about 150-200lbs. She's very proud of herself and the weight she's lost, and now like many folks who've gone thru this procedure, she has a pretty large fold of skin where here belly had been.

Sherrod Brown is for Bernanke and against us!

I joined the Campaign for Liberty's "No Audit, No Bernanke!" and called and emailed Senators Voinovich and Brown to vote against the miserable and treacherous man. So far I've gotten a lousy response from Brown where he weasels out of doing anything for the American people or against Bernanke. He deserves a pink slip!

[Emphasis mine throughout]

Dear Mr. Ben-Ariel:

This President and his administration were delivered a nation and economy on life support a year ago. No one understood whether the world economy would implode, resulting in a global depression.

Fortunately, we have stepped back from the abyss and the economy is slowly recovering, but all we hear from the media is why are we not yet out of the woods.

Bob Latta's statement on the State of the Union address

WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R- Bowling Green) made the following statement regarding President Obama’s State of the Union Address this evening.

“Instead of focusing on creating jobs and putting Americans back to work in 2009, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid chose to focus their attention on a $1 trillion dollar health care bill, cap and trade legislation, which would be the largest energy tax levied against American families and business alike, a $1 trillion dollar “Stimulus Package,” and billions of dollars in bailouts.
