New Mexico Senate race: Rand Paul opposes Heather Wilson, Christie supports: Obamacare repeal opposed.
(Page 3 of 5)
“We believe that the provisions of Obamacare that are not working should be repealed, that thos provisions that are working should be retained….”
In other words, members of this Wilson-favored-Republican-group have already signed on to the idea of a government takeover of health care — just, you know, not so much.
This being the classic RINO position that Barry Goldwater once labeled “the dime store New Deal.”
Wilson underlined her commitment to the dime store New Deal concept when she was quoted by the Santa Fe New Mexican as saying:
“I’ve been very honest with members of my own party. We’re not going to agree on everything. I’m not going to play political games. I will always tell you the truth. I also am not averse to bipartisan compromising when it is in (the) interest of New Mexico.”
Where is the National Republican Senatorial Committee on the Wilson-Sowards race?
The NRSC was burned in the last cycle when it openly supported RINO Florida Governor Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio. Mark Levin was the first to spot Rubio’s potential and repeatedly brought the now-Florida senator to the talk radio spotlight. Crist, of course, eventually left the party. The NRSC also raised money to defeat now Kentucky Senator Paul, who in turn, like Rubio, defeated the NRSC’s favorite. Without doubt the most contentious NRSC intervention was it’s considerable opposition to Delaware’s Christine O’Donnell in her primary against GOP Establishment candidate Congressman Mike Castle, a former Delaware Governor and SEIU ally.
This time around in New Mexico the NRSC has been studiously neutral — or has it?
A Sowards source says that when the NRSC held a retreat for prospective candidates and donors in Austin, Texas, Heather Wilson was there. While Wilson was provided a break-out session with donors, Sowards’ invitation “never materialized.” To make matters worse, Wilson was eclipsed by rising Ohio star Josh Mandel, according to a source present at the event.
Eyebrows were also raised by an anti-Sowards story that suddenly appeared in, of all places, the Weekly Standard. The Standard piece picks up the Wilson campaign theme that Sowards business — child care — has received government money, thus making Sowards a hypocrite. To which Sowards replies:
Career politician Heather Wilson has a big spending, liberal record she cannot defend, so it comes as no surprise her campaign and ruling class elite Republicans in Washington, D.C. are desperately twisting the truth in their hit piece by the establishment favoring Weekly Standard against the Sowards for Senate Campaign. The article referenced is a factually flawed misrepresentation of my long held belief that subsidies are not part of the free market.
During her tenure as Cabinet Secretary for Children Youth & Families Department for the State of New Mexico, before she began her ten years in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998, Wilson was the author of a short sighted and destructive program. Because of her lack of business understanding, her crowning achievement, the “Gold, Silver and Bronze Program” de-incentivized the quality care of New Mexico children and offered additional subsidies for poor quality care. The policies that she pushed forward, created a “join or die” dilemma. Wilson helped force the Child Care industry into this situation.
I am thankful that Wilson brought up the issue of subsidies, because it gives me a platform to talk about the destructive effect that career politicians have had on our lives and businesses. They and their obnoxious sense of entitlement have long crippled small business owners with unnecessary and burdensome regulations. It is the height of arrogance to attack my successful small business where we employ 75 people and care for over 600 children so their mothers can work and go to school, while their children are well cared for.
Wilson is part of the heavy thumb of State Regulation and the very person that helped put these policies in place. She of all people should understand why these subsidized programs are harmful. For Wilson to expect us to not accept the state program for low income families is akin to a grocery store not accepting food stamps, which could be construed as discrimination.
In the 2010 cycle, the Wall Street Journal’s Neil King Jr. reported that
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
