Huckabee On Health And My Discussions On National ID and Minimum Wage

Things are piling up and much is already written or under construction. But, I was listening to an interview with Mike Huckabee on health care at The Kaiser Foundation that I thought a lot of people should and would want to hear: . He is askrd at one point if he thinks the government has the responsibility to step in and “be the driver” on health matters. He immediately says that we certainly don’t want government control and relative to what some think of as “free government health care” quotes P.J. O’Roarke saying that nothing is more expensive than when it’s free, and that includes not just in dollars but in quality of service and anything else.

As usual, Huckabee stresses consumer control. Government may advise and may be able to pull together help, with a larger and broader scope and reach. But, the consumer must always remain the driver, with the option to choose. And state, not federal government should be the primary recourse for help. Check out the interview, and be sure to download the podcast!

I’ve also had discussion today with a contact who asked about national ID and The Constitution , which I will expand on and post, and with Blogger Byron Harvey on the subject of minimum-wage which unfortunately, the Democratic Congress has just passed an increase of.

But, be sure to read online discussion of The Ame, Iowa Straw Poll, including what I posted this morning below, and think about it.
