Quick Links: Schwartz and Gramm

The March 27, 2010 Boulder Daily Camera has published Brian Schwartz's analysis of "The ObamaCare Scam".

The March 25, 2010 Wall Street Journal includes an OpEd by former Senator Phil Gramm on repealing ObamaCare, "Resistance Is Not Futile".

A key excerpt:
Republicans have a job to do. They must make it clear to the American people that this is only the beginning of the debate. There will be two congressional elections and a presidential election before the government takeover is implemented in 2014.

I believe that Republicans should take the unequivocal position that if they are given a majority in Congress in November, they will stop the implementation of the government takeover. And if a Republican is elected president in 2012, they will do with Mr. Obama's health-care bill what the American voters will have done to the Democrats: throw it out. If the voters demand change in November, even the Democrats who remain in Congress will help give it to them.
We'll see if the GOP is up to the task -- or if they disappoint Americans by once again capitulating to and compromising with the statists.
