According to a report on WALB, U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop shows just how much of a hypocrite he really is. He is quoted as saying, “I had to ask myself, ‘What would Jesus do?’” This is a man who votes for a hate crime bill that hurts pastors in what they can say, a self avowed pro-abortionist, and quotes scripture only when in his self interest. He has voted 100 percent along Speaker Pelosi’s demands.
One supporter was quoted as saying, “I am uninsured and it’s going to help me personally.” What he doesn’t know is that he will still have to wait three to eight years for it, and if some of the news reports are correct, he will still be getting his care from the emergency room because the bill is missing most reforms, like the doctor fix, that will stop the 25-percent cut in reimbursement to doctors taking Medicaid. Or the Medicare cuts or tort reform or cross-state selling of insurance or that in Year 2 of the bill the state must come up with the money for increased Medicaid rolls. We taxpayers will to cut education or increase taxes to cover the projected $500 million cost. We are more than $1 billion in the hole right now in the state budget.
The small business person then will have a choice: provide health insurance or pay a new tax, either of which will most likely cost jobs because the revenue growth in this economy is just not there.
There is no logic in the insanity we have in Washington. There spending is bankrupting America, there are now talks of another stimulus bill. From what I hear, it’s all bridges and roads again. Are they nuts?
This has got to stop and we have a chance in 2010. Visit Mike Keown’s Website at www.mikekeown.com and support him. Sitting on the sidelines will only return Bishop to office with more of the same.
