THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin

Let it Snowe, let it Snowe, let it Snowe.


Right!   So I wrote Olympia on Monday, (along with thousands of others).  I begged her to remember that she was elected as a Republican and to vote against the Baucus Bill in Committee.  Of course, she ignored me, (but I believe I’m in good company).

On “Cavuto” just a few minutes ago, Sen. Grassley stated that Olympia is still not committed to voting for the Bill all the way through the legislative process, uh-huh.  Seems like now would have been a good time to begin actually putting her vote where her mouth is.  Perhaps we should introduce her to Sen. Specter?   He could explain the advantages of becoming a Democrat.

In case you haven’t have a chance to read about the Price-Waterhouse study on the true cost of the Baucus bill as it stands now, (I remind you that at this point it does not contain a “public option”–it will, just wait for it), I have linked to analyses by “Investor’s Business Daily”, the “Health Care Policy and Marketplace” blog and the “Heritage” blog.  None of these are wild-eyed extremists.  All of them arrive at the same conclusion: this Bill, as HR 3200, is not about health care, it is about power, control and money–Government power and control, our money.
