Today, we went to the small Martin Heinrich townhall, or whatever they called it, at the Moriarty library. A representative from Martin Heinrich’s office was there. It was small, about 12-14 people came from start to finish. Immediately upon arrival, the rep told us that he wanted to be sure we were “civil”. I thought back to our Founding Fathers. I’ll bet that, above all, they were civil.
A spirited defense of America was put out, with calls to not go down the road that Pres Obama wants to take us; the road that ends in socialism. The rep said that Heinrich supports our American heritage, and talked about our right to vote. No kidding. Yes, we can vote, as all NM congressmen will find out in November, who voted for the healthcare bill against our will. However, our heritage is much deeper than being able to vote. The government for the people, by the people, should never take over 1/6 of our economy, and then raise and re-raise our taxes to fund their plans.
The rep said that he has often heard Rep. Heinrich talk about how passionately he feels about people having healthcare. I said, that is fine. Then, let Heinrich join a church, or support a charity and do all he can to help people with their healthcare. But it is not the place of the government to care for all people. That is not our American heritage. We are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY and we are going to be taxed into oblivion if the final healthcare bill passes.
