At what Point will we be Honest?
In today's society, people are put down mentally if they are overweight, not attractive. The perception is that they are lazy, perhaps less intelligent. Just not as comforting to have around in important positions as a handsome man or beautiful woman.
However if they took the time to look at what was going on, they would see that it had rained both times, making the track slippery, and thus impeding the runner.
I support Mitt Romney because against a veto proof legislature he balanced a budget by cutting programs and not raising any taxes.
I support him because he took a state 50th in unemployment to 11th in one term.
I support him because he has always been against Federal Socialized Medicine, and is the first Candidate to say that he will give waivers to all 50 states until ObamaCare can be repealed in the House and Senate.
I support him because he is against Cap and Trade legislation, stating it would be an economic disaster.
I support his mandates as the history tells us the founding fathers used them too. Read Here about the truth.
I support him because he is for drilling in America
I support him because he has a plan to fix the economy.Check it out
I support him because he is strong against Illegal immigration (check it out)
I support him because he fought hard as a pro life Governor( check out his vetoes)
I support him for his Tax record (check it out)
A close look shows a very conservative man who happens to be a great problem solver that is being smeared by the good old boys.
I support him on his desire to help his state with bad Health Care issues. Some of the things he vetoed that would have made it even better were vetoed back and left in. Here are the pros and cons by Mike Sage:
First of all, most people don't know that the MA health care solution wasn't something the government just sat around and dreamed up as an ideal health care plan. It was essentially an emergency solution to a funding shortfall caused by the federal government pulling $384 million out of the MA health care budget.
Drastic measures had to be taken, compromises had to be made on both sides of the political spectrum, and it was a matter of making the best of a bad situation. That being said, here are the pros and cons of the MA plan, as I see them:
* It did address the $384 million health care funding shortfall in 2005.
* It did make MA the top state in the nation for percentage of insured citizens.
* It did promote private health insurance solutions, a private sector intiative.
* It did encourage the ability to shop between insurance providers for the best deals.
* Whatever penalties and fees were attached were relatively low.
* A 2010 poll showed that 67% of MA residents were satisfied with it.
* It's never been ruled unconstitutional (versus Obamacare, which has been ruled unconstitutional by two federal appeals judges.)
* It did not involve any sort of a government "takeover" of any part of the healthcare or insurance industries.
* It was designed to be revenue neutral, requiring no taxes be raised.
* It included tax penalties for failing to obtain an insurance plan. Massachusetts tax filers who failed to enroll in a health insurance plan which was deemed affordable for them lost the $219 personal exemption on their income tax, a provision that Romney vetoed, but was overridden on.
* It gave too much authority to the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, also known as the Health Connector.
* It provides free health care insurance for residents earning less than 150% of the federal poverty level
* The law also partially-subsidizes health care insurance for those earning up to 300% of the federal poverty level.
Many changes were made to the MA health care reform act after Mitt Romney left office. In October 2006, January 2007, and November 2007, bills were enacted that amended and made technical corrections to the statute (Chapters 324 and 450 of the Acts of 2006, and chapter 205 of the Acts of 2007).
Wow! Common sense and a little truth go a long way to clear up misconceptions.
