Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 648 -- Big Government Health Care.

Socialized Medicine On An Installment Plan-

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has recently hopped on the anti-Obamacare bandwagon, but her record is pretty consistent-- in favor of expanded government health care. Again and again, she has voted against conservatives in the Senate, including John Cornyn, and she has sided with Democrats to vote in favor of a larger government role in health care in America.

A little info on S-CHIP:

Expanding SCHIP to cover children in higher income families is not an efficient or cost-effective way to reduce the ranks of uninsured children. As the safety net is cast further up the income ladder, it will increasingly substitute government programs and taxpayer dollars for private coverage and funding. In order to avoid significant and increasing crowd out, and to optimize the program’s “bang for the buck,” Congress should abandon its current course before SCHIP expires. Congress should, then, restore SCHIP’s purpose as a targeted safety net for uninsured children in low-income families and work to more efficiently and effectively direct assistance to those most in need.

Governor Perry has taken plenty of heat from Democrats and the establishment media for his opposition to S-CHIP expansion at the state level. Hutchison and Democrats have berated the Governor for "leaving federal money on the table."

Perry could have taken the easy way out to avoid criticism, but he didn't. We should reward Republicans when they stand up against the prevailing mentality that says let's push toward health care socialism one little bit at a time.

Kay Bailey Hutchison, meanwhile, has proven with her big government health care votes over the years that she is all for the federal government's involvement in care-- achieved on an installment plan. S-CHIP fits nicely into Senator Hutchison's career of "enlightened" Republicanism.

Enlightened is really just another way to say RINO: REPUBLICAN IN NAME ONLY.

Bless her heart! She was in Washington DC for too long. I think after awhile of being there, our Conservatives either forget, OR become brainwashed, OR are infected with some sort of Socialist guilt virus, OR something. Perhaps after being there for a certain number of years we really do need to set term limits for all Politicians. They start becoming a part of the problem instead of getting rid of the problem. It really does seem they go there and create more problems. I hope the best for KBH personally. BUT I think it is time for her to retire. I know a lot of people like me who really like her personally, BUT feel she has become too fond of Political Pork.
