Schauer Column on SCHIP
(Thanks to an anonymous comment!)
In a guest column for the Citizen Patriot, Senate Minority Leader and congressional candidate Mark Schauer makes the case for SCHIP.
A few key pieces of the column:
Sometimes if people say something often enough, it seems true. That's what many have been doing in misrepresenting a bipartisan bill to guarantee health-insurance coverage to 80,000 Michigan children. We must set the record straight as Congress has another chance this week to do the right thing and approve this common-sense legislation.But you should really just have read the whole thing.
The veto override vote is tomorrow. It might seem like a lost cause, but contact Congressman Walberg and tell him that you want him to do the right thing, support life, and vote to override the veto.
Just wanted you to know, fitz, that I did call Walberg's office regarding this upcoming vote on the override veto.
Also, I wonder if anyone else received Tim's 8 page legislative update in their newspaper. I scanned the entire update but two things struck my fancy:
1) Under the title of Returning control of Education Back to Educators and Families , Timmy says, "I will continue to work in a non-partisan way to help improve our educational system to compete in the new global economy, while standing up to the Bush administration and their massive one-size-fits-all bureaucracy in education."
Woooooo! Sounds like Timmy is finally biting the hand that feeds him (sarcasm mode off). Seriously, this from a guy whose wife home-schooled his kids? Nothing wrong with home-schooling but he's certainly not an example of someone who advocates or cares about public education.
2) In his chatty, little column titled Listening and Learning from Constituents is Critical to Doing Job , he says, "Since taking office in January, I have often said one of the best ways I can serve my constituents is to be available, listen and carry our values to Washington.
"Carry OUR values?????". And whose values might those be, Mr. Non-Representative of OUR 7th District. They wouldn't be mine.
Does anyone know if Schauer is pro-choice?
I have heard he claims to be 100% pro-life, but coming from the mouth of a politician, I don't know what that means anymore.
And, on that topic, it looks like you cannot ban abortion, nor can you end it. We can only continue to see that this medical procedure continues to be done in a safe manner by a doctor. I'd pray Walberg comes to understand the idiocy of his anti-abortion stance, but I doubt he would believe anything printed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. (Thats jus more liberal gubment propganda.)

This should be every Democrat's stand on reproductive rights:Post a Comment
"Abortion is a difficult and often painful decision for a woman to make. It's a decision only she can make, based on the dictates of her own conscience and faith, not on the dicates of someone else's. But, except under exceptional circumstances, such as rape, incest, or danger to her health, she should make that decision s early as she can, so she is not aborting a fetus that is increasingly more like a person."
