"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)

DFL’s HIX, A Model For US, Not Them

The DFL controlled  Minnesota House passed their homegrown version of Obamacare last night, the Minnesota HEalth Insurance Exchange. It had bipartisan opposition. It was hastily amended to remove a provision that required lawmakers to live under the laws that they propose. HEre is Minority Leader Daudt’s statement.

St. Paul- The Minnesota House of Representatives voted Friday to pass the Minnesota Democrats’ Insurance Exchange (House File 5) by a vote of 72-61. No Republican member of the House voted in support of the bill. House Republican Leader Kurt Daudt (Crown) gave the following statement in response to its passage.

“The Democrats’ Insurance Exchange was bad last week and it’s worse today. Not only does this bill increase costs for Minnesotans, it limits their choices in health insurance coverage and fails to protect private patient data. Democrats also removed language that would require legislators to purchase their insurance through the Exchange. If the Democrats are finally admitting their Exchange isn’t good for us, why won’t they admit that higher costs, fewer choices and less privacy aren’t good for the rest of Minnesota?”

We may have been better off letting the Feds in because the DFL created an unaccountable body that will dictate your health care options (read: ration). The Met Council has a sister bureaucracy now that will dictate what we can and cannot do that is untouchable and unaccountable to the citizens.
