    Health care action

    The 2013 Legislative Session begins in three weeks. Two weeks ago, the governor released his budget recommendations, which yet again contain cuts in payments to Florida hospitals for the care of low income families, children, the elderly and the disabled. This is just one of many challenges facing us in the upcoming Legislative Session. Yet, the biggest health care policy decision Florida faces was not addressed in the governor’s budget because that decision will be up to the Legislature.

    History lesson needed
    It appears the letter writer of “Outdated Amendment” is fanatically anti-Second Amendment. I don’t have a problem with him voicing his opinion about it, but I think he should have used facts. Instead he chose to use nonsense to try and make his point.

    Smoke and mirrors
    Conservatives and liberals maintain an ongoing dialogue. Their ideas and opinions often differ - sometimes greatly - but they keep exchanging thoughts and ideas which allow them to reasonably debate one another’s views.

    Current events

    Many Americans voted for John McCain in his 2008 presidential bid. They agreed to support the winner, Barack Obama, for the good of America. After all, Obama was young, fresh, and energetic. He promised "hope and change" to America ... which he never gave us.

    Looking at Executive Orders

    It is a shame that the only ads Obama can run are promoting class warfare, primarily because he can’t run on his record. He wants to shift emphasis to fear of the unknown from the facts that would in themselves prevent his re- election. However there is a real danger that hardly anyone is talking about, one that could destroy individual freedom and our American way of life. It’s time to talk about his executive orders.

    Voters deserve the truth
    The president is being blamed for political ads that depict Romney as a heartless candidate who would shove grandma off a cliff and also introducing vouchers for seniors to purchase their health benefits on the open market. Romney is accusing the president of taking 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare system and using this money to shore up Obamacare, which, by the wa,y is despised by any politician with an R after his name.

    War on women
    The “war on women” is a false claim created by the liberal media and the current administration as a way to divide women and the conservative community. The majority of American women are much too intelligent to accept their plan.
    What began as a debate regarding the government demanding the Catholic Church pay for and furnish contraceptives to women who are covered under the Church’s health insurance suddenly became a bogus argument which the administration calls a “war on women”.
