"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

READY SET PANIC – 2% Federal Cuts Loom Yet MNHIX Funding Still Hollow Promise

The White House released forecasts of what state budget line items they will cut if “Sequestration” happens this week. The fear mongering is designed to make Minnesotans think they will have to pay more to prevent cuts to carefully selected services. Obama(‘s auto pen) signed the Sequestration plan into place on New Year’s Day. This last minute fear mongering rings a little hollow to me since he has had 2 months to work with Congress to avoid this.

You will not hear the end of the cuts this week, but there’s far more dangerous budgeting happening closer to home. Please bear in mind that this is $85 Billion dollars out of a $3.8 Trillion budget. The idea that safetynet health insurance for the poor and firefighter jobs or whatever other tear jerking crowd of backdrop standings Obama can find … a pathetic excuse of leadership.

The homegrown version of Obamacare: The Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange” has a far more dangerous design flaw that will cost Minnesotans far more. Mark Dayton and Senate Democrats made this their very first agenda item this session. Senate File #1.

This program is so poorly designed that it has a $75 million donut hole each and every year. The fact is Government run programs require permanent funding to run. They are inventing a new system and this will require a whole new set of bureaucrats to administer the program. And please don’t lose sight of how this is simply to manage something almost every Minnesotan already has.

So while their is much thumping on their chests for what seems to add up to just $20 million is potential lost Federal monies, Democrats in Minnesota are trying to install an unproven, top down, and bloated bureaucracy to facilitate your health care.

Maybe we should be a little more concerned about where the rubber meets the road here in Minnesota, and not be distracted by some veiled threats from the White House.
