We have previously commented on the excesses of some unions that have caused several states to be on the brink of insolvency. One of the biggest drains on state budgets in addition to the sweetheart contracts with public sector workers is Medicaid. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, like other governors faced with major budget deficits, is following their lead by proposing to drop Medicaid coverage for 250,000 people who have middle class incomes. Dee Perez-Scott claims that Brewer has extended tax cuts to “Rich Big Business” but she neither provides any details about those tax cuts nor bothers to mention their legitimate purpose of stimulating the local economy to create jobs. As I mentioned in a previous blog, it will be interesting to see what Dee has to say when Obama does the same thing, granting tax breaks to businesses so they can create more jobs. She will, of course, see that as a horse of a different color. She has never been able to see any point of view except her own. That is a serious and debilitating shortcoming.
Had the Administration backed SB1070 instead of opposing it, perhaps the attrition of illegals would have achieved the same level of Medicaid reductions the Governor proposes. So who is really at fault here? I suspect those like Dee Perez-Scott who are in favor of every form of welfare, like most bleeding-heart liberals, and who support the illegal aliens in our country who drain off countless millions from programs like Medicaid. She sees nothing wrong with a productivity- robbing, cradle to the grave welfare state. Some of us have to be more sensible and reflect on what made our country great: industriousness, personal responsibility, and self-reliance. Dee would drain the states’ treasuries and then lay on more taxes in the tax-and-spend mode typical of the democrats. Others have to deal with the real world and begin to cut back on the things that were never part of our beginnings as a nation.
Dee Perez-Scott, of course, never indicates how much more she would be willing to pay to in taxes to fund Medicaid for the medically indigent and the illegal aliens who pop into Parkland Hospital in Dallas in large numbers to drop their instant citizen babies at taxpayer expense. Since Dee Perez-Scott doesn't understand the Republican agenda, I have repeated it here:
The Republican Agenda is:
. Reduce spending to save our country from financial ruin.
. Rein in the Unions that have brought states to the brink of bankruptcy.
. Restore the concept of personal responsibility to everyone.
.Enable businesses to create new jobs by reducing their taxes and making them more competitive.
. Combat the creeping socialism of President Obama and defeat his Alinskyite blueprint for America
Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.
