It is Conservative Alternative Day at Human Events and House and Senate Republicans have come out in full force to represent Republican solutions to the issues facing America today. See excerpts below:
Rep. Tom Price (GA) talks Heatlh Care:
Perhaps the most blatant “disinformation” being promulgated in the health care debate this year is that there are only two choices for American health care: putting the federal government in charge or allowing insurance companies to run the show. While the President, congressional Democrats in charge, and, to a degree, the media have done all they can to shut out Republican ideas, the truth remains that there is a third path, a correct path.

There are two competing visions on energy policy in America today. One leads down a road toward a regressive national energy tax that intentionally increases energy prices, restricts economic growth, and aims to dictate and regulate Americans into a new “green” energy future.
This “cap-and-tax” energy vision assumes that a massive national carbon tax is the only possible solution to create new energy jobs and reduce our carbon footprint. More HERE.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX) talks Health Care:
The current level of spending and growth in health care cost will soon bankrupt our nation, with the latest full year numbers showing that tax dollars spent in 2007 on Medicare grew to more than $430 billion, and almost $330 billion for Medicaid. That year, these programs cost the federal government an average of $9,200 in tax dollars for every household in America, and that number increases daily. More HERE.
America will emerge from this recession. Times are tough now, but the American people are resilient. We will come out on the other side.
Yet when we do, our economy is not likely to look the way it did a few short years ago. On an individual level, Americans are spending less and saving more. We’re learning lessons from our grandparents, who knew what it meant to stretch a dollar.
The job market is likely to change as well. Some 6.7 million jobs have been lost since the recession began. When those jobs return, they are not likely to come back in the same form. More HERE.
