what a partisan hypocrite. Doc, do I have to remind you that in March, 2012 you voted for the Ryan Budget Bill which would have replaced Medicare with a voucher system. Actuaries agree that it would not be enough to make up for the loss of medicare, but you voted for it Doc and now you put out this nonsense about Obama.
"Every day, concerns surrounding the implementation of Obamacare continue to grow". No they don't, the only thing that continues to grow are the lies told by Republicans such as youself.
Here us a link where people can inform themselves without having to rely on a two-faced member of a partisan Congress.
the government just wants all the money it can get in order to pay themselves their big wages and benefits.
Number of American deaths per year that result directly or primarily from the following selected causes nationwide, according to World Almanacs, Life Insurance Actuarial (death) Rates, and the last 20 years of U.S. Surgeon Generals' reports.
TOBACCO - 340,000 to 450,000
ALCOHOL (Not including 50% of all highway deaths and 65% of all murders) - 150,000+
ASPIRIN (Including deliberate overdose) - 180 to 1,000+
CAFFEINE (From stress, ulcers, and triggering irregular heartbeats, etc.) - 1,000 to 10,000
"LEGAL" DRUG OVERDOSE (Deliberate or accidental) from legal, prescribed or patent medicines and/or mixing with alcohol - e.g. Valium/alcohol - 14,000 to 27,000
ILLICIT DRUG OVERDOSE - (Deliberate or accidental) from all illegal drugs - 3,800 to 5,200
MARIJUANA - 0
So you should concern yourselves with alcohol, nicotine, etc., more so than cannabis if you want to protect the churches, schools and children. Educate yourselves. You are not as well informed as you think.
Here Jan, I will do your work for you.
Dennis: "Jan 23 (Reuters) - U.S. treasury and law enforcement agencies will soon issue regulations opening banking services to state-sanctioned marijuana businesses even though cannabis remains classified an illegal narcotic under federal law, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday" Come on, Dennis, you can't see the forest for the trees.
Jan: Please, no personal anecdotes. If you are so concerned about the health and well being of children why don't you make sugar illegal so the children of Grandview are not fat diabetics.
The people of Grandview deserve to have commissioners who are educated and informed, not a bunch of nincompoops who can't get over old prejudices and personal stories. For every cannabis addict I will show you ten alcohol tragedies. Cannabis is not addictive. It is not a gateway drug. Legal cannabis does not lead to more crime.
you've been a Congressman for how many years, and you never did one thing to curb the skyrocketing cost of healthcare. The individual mandate, and the employer mandate, were policies set forth by the conservative Heritage Foundation which is run by the Koch brothers. It was also called for by Newt Gingrich. Yet when Obama tries to do it, you are against it. Just admit it Doc, you have done nothing but be against everything the Democrats try to do. You are a partisan shill and a lackey of the Hanford Hypocrites who whine about big government spending while at the same time taking home their big government paychecks.
Why don't Republicans want Americans to have healthcare? Once upon a time Republicans were against Medicare. They were against Social Security. Even today they would like to privatize it.
Doc Hastings represents an area (Hanford) that receives a billion dollars a year from the federal governemnt. You, Doc, are a hypocrite.
So now what will happen is that another municipality, perhaps Grandview or Granger, will have a retail cannabis shop and will reap a windfall in taxes. Sunnyside has always let Grandview install the profit bringing entities: District Court, YVC, National Guard, etc.
Cannabis is actually a very benign substance, but the old people still believe all of the old "Reefer Madness" stories about it. The old people will eventually die off and so will all of their misconceptions. You can die of alcohol poisoning. Nobody has ever died from marijuana. People die from nicotine every day, but not from marijuana. Yet Sunnyside allows these real dangerous and addictive drugs to be sold everywhere. Sunnyside has a real lack of leadrship and a group head-in-the-sand lack of knowledge.
Any person who wants marijuana has no problem finding and buying it. They just won't contribute to Sunnyside's tax revenue.
Reagan, you are no Ronald.
Obama passed health care reform.
he directed US military forces to bring Bin Ladin to justice by backing American forces to go him in another country. A dangerous thing to do for a President. He could have started a war.
Obama took over the stimulus program from Bush and this year American car companies sold more cars since 2007.
Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform act.
Obama ended our adventure in Iraq.
Obama is drawing down our forces from a no-win situation in Afghanistan.
Toppled Ghaddifi and Mubarak.
Improved Americas image abroad as Bush was viewed with hatred in other countries. If you travel you would be surprised by the dislike of Bush. It is now fun to travel as an American.
Obama increased the Department of Veterans Affairs by 10% in one year and then did it again by 16%.
Obama has redirected American priorities to Asia and away from a declining Europe.
Obama is making efforts to avoid war with Iran while mindless Republicans are rattling sabres.
Obama passed the credit card Reform act which stopped banks from raisin your interest rates without your knowledge.
This list could go on and on. It is no accident the Rep Wilson is from South Carolina. That is the state that started the Civil War. They are bigoted in South Carolina.
Michael, if you wouldn't have been adopted by Ronald Reagan you would have no platform.
