Weeding Out “Minnick Myths”: Debunking…Minnick is Anti-ObamaCare (Video)

with 9 comments

Watch the following video (below) then read the article and you will find that Minnick is for a liberal make over of ObamaCare.

Who is Walt Minnick? Idahoans are finding out!

By Bill Hurst, Idahoans are finding out, Minnick is a Liberal Democrat,  posing as a conservative.

The Democrat candidate running, posing as a conservative, for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District states in the video, posted above, that there are some “draconian” measures, funding issues, and no price controls on the health care providers fees for services, is his reasoning for his “nay” vote on the ObamaCare. If you notice at the end of the video clip, he says that there are many good features in the ObamaCare. A reasonable conclusion would be; that he supports some form of  ObamaCare. This is firmly confirmed in Minnick’s comment,

“We should try to sort out over the next several Congresses the good from the bad and make this the bill that we should have passed in the first place.”

Does Walt think for one minute there will not be “draconian” measures and funding issues in his health plan? No matter if Minnick does hand stands, it will require pulling dollars from taxpayers, draining our economy and plunging our nation further into debt. When does he think our economy will be strong enough? Does he think that our country will overwhelmingly want to make this less than “free choice” move towards a total socialistic state?

Minnick says “There are very little cost controlsin the ObamaCare and further states “The problem with this health care (bill) is that it does very little to control costs.” Minnick seems to propose stricter and increased control over what health care providers could charge.  His bill would require  Americans  to become healthier.  The provisions in any national health care law  “smacks”  free enterprise system in the face and limits freedoms.

Surgeon General: "ObamaCare is good for you. Now bend over."

Fact: All government health care plans are “Socialized Medical Care.” One thing is for sure…the liberal candidate has not given any thought to basic economic principles. When Minnick talks cost controls he means price controls. This would limit the number of individuals entering into the health care field. Those that have  skills that would  produce more money elsewhere, will leave the health market. Meaning the health care providers left, will demand higher wages because the work load will increase. Resulting in very limited (rationed) or substandard care provided in any socialist plan. Liberals just don’t understand the law of supply and demand~!

Minnick’s gimmick is to say he didn’t vote for ObamaCare but he doesn’t want to  stop the enactment of the Federal Heath Care Law.  Minnick was asked what his response to  Idaho’s Health Care Freedom Act he responsed “It will be quite unlikely it (The Health Care Freedom Act) will be successful.” Minnick doesn’t like the current structure of ObamaCare.  Why won’t he support Idaho’s efforts in getting this amendment passed? Is he supportive of the Federal Government being dominate over State’s Rights? Minnick doesn’t want to support the Idaho conservatives working for less government? He wants us to believe a “Minnick Myth” that he is a conservative Democrat. Minnick would rather work on the “flawed bill”  for several more congresses, than helping his fellow Idahoans  scrap the National Health Care Law. Polls show that 60% polled do not like ObamaCare. (RealClearPolatics-Health Care Polls).

Solution: Idahoans should not send Minnick back to Washington D.C.

Minnick’s comparison of mandating the purchase of government health insurance by every adult in America to cover them and their children and States mandating liability insurance for vehicles is lame and ludicrous. Here is the difference, if you don’t buy liability insurance you can still own a vehicle however; you can’t drive it on the government streets. It is a matter of choice, if you opt out of the system you pay no monitory penalty to the State.  On the other hand, you must buy “Socialized Health Care” or you will face fines, loss of other benefits, loss of your employment, consumer prices will start to rise through out the market. The free enterprise system will have the onerous task of dealing with higher costs which will cause inflation, rivaling the days of Jimmy Carter.

Ralph D. Perez commented:

Our constitution enumerates certain “limited powers” to the national government and retains all other powers to the states or to the people. The power to mandated healthcare or even address it in the first place is nowhere to be found in our constitution. Therefore, any such power is retained by the states or by the people. It only follows then that the states do have the authority to require car insurance and or even health insurance, but the national government clearly does not. This is the foundation for the argument that the current healthcare bill is unconstitutional and I could not agree more.

Where is Minnick? 8 more in Congress sign on for Obamacare repeal ‘Pulled out by the roots’ plan now has support from 133. Idaho’s liberal Democrat says he voted against Obamacare, but he supports it! Well we do need some Weeding…Out “Minnick Myths.”

As usual our liberal, posing as a conservative, friend has it wrong again. When will he and his buddies stop spinning the “Minnick Myths”?  Sounds like he is playing both sides of the street!

These are the people that Minnick associates with…No it is not guilt by association, it’s who he really is! Not right for Idaho, Too Liberal for Idaho!

Remember the liberal candidate, posing as a conservative, says there are many “good” provisions in ObamaCare! Let me know if you find one.

Labrador is no impostor he is the “Real Deal” CONSERVATIVE!

  1. These were comments by Raul Labradors aid, in response to an article in the Idaho Statesman.

    LABRADOR AIDE COMMENTS

    State Rep. Raul Labrador’s campaign says incumbent Walt Minnick can’t escape the fact he voted for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Campaign Coordinator China Gum:

    “Mr. Minnick helped install Nancy Pelosi as speaker. He voted for her and it’s because he supports her. Furthermore, he supports the entire liberal leadership team in the House, which has helped bring us to the brink of financial disaster.

    “So, now that he’s in trouble and he’s being held accountable for his most important vote, he wants to hedge his bets with the voters. The next thing you know, he’ll start talking about finding an alternative to Barack Obama.

    “It doesn’t matter, because whoever he votes for it’s going to be a Democrat and it’s going to hand over the reins to the current chairmen in the House who left us with no budget and no new jobs.”

    AOL News
    (June 8) — This week, the White House embarked on a major publicity push on behalf of the health care reform law. Given the state of play in the states, the administration has a long road ahead of it — particularly when it comes to the health insurance mandate.

    In the months following the law’s enactment, 23 states have taken action against this key provision of the health reform law — either passing legislation or a constitutional amendment or suing to block key elements of the law, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council.

    Six states have already passed laws to prevent the mandate from taking effect in their states. Four have enacted statutory measures, and three have amended their constitutions (one state has done both). Statutory measures go into effect without voter approval, but the constitutional amendments passed by legislatures in Arizona, Florida and Oklahoma have to be approved by voters in those states this election year before taking effect. In addition, lawmakers in dozens of other states have introduced legislation, and 19 have proposed constitutional amendments.

    Also, 21 state attorneys general have filed lawsuits on the grounds that the health care mandate is unconstitutional. On Monday, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli responded to the Obama administration’s move to dismiss the Virginia lawsuit, which challenges the federal mandate that people obtain coverage or face penalties.

    At the same time, the public remains highly skeptical of the new law. A RealClearPolitics.com average of health care surveys finds that 52 percent of people are opposed to it.

  3. […] Who is Walt Minnick? Idahoans are finding out! Published in July 15th, 2010 Posted by TMH in Financial, Politics By: Bill Hurst Weeding Out “Minnick Myths” […]

  4. […] Raul Labrador, Has strong moral and ethical convictions and his word is his bond. He has proven he will stand against the Health Care Law voted in by Pelosi, and Reid with Obama at the forefront pushing for this bill, that has led this country to the path of socialism. Labrador’s opponent says he voted against the Health Care Bill but he still voted for funding and other amendments related to “The Bill.” Read the following link and you will also how the Liberal Democrat feel about government health care: Liberal Minnick will not help his fellow Idahoans pass an amendment to repeal the Health Care Law. […]

  5. […] Idaho’s liberal Democrat, posing as a conservative,  says he voted against Obamacare, but he supports it! Well, it seems Idahoans need to know the truth, it will take; Weeding…Out “Minnick Myths.” His statement on video, “We should try to sort out over the next several Congresses the good from the bad and make this the bill that we should have passed in the first place.”  It sounds like Minnick is for “Socialized Health Care.”  Read and hear what Idaho’s liberal Congressman has to say about the subject at: “Who is Walt Minnick…Idahoans Are Finding Out!” […]

  6. […] the good from the bad and make this the bill that we should have passed in the first place” (see video and related comments). Minnick has voted for funding of bills that he earlier voted against. Well here is a […]

  7. While I understand your point on the difference between mandated car insurance and mandated health care, I am sorry to say that you have completely missed the bigger point. Our constitution enumerates certain “limited powers” to the national government and retains all other powers to the states or to the people. The power to mandated healthcare or even address it in the first place is nowhere to be found in our constitution. Therefore, any such power is retained by the states or by the people. It only follows then that the states do have the authority to require car insurance and or even health insurance, but the national government clearly does not. This is the foundation for the argument that the current healthcare bill is unconstitutional and I could not agree more.

    • Thanks Ralph, I was pointing out Mr. Minnick’s statements in the video. So I don’t think I have missed the big point. There are may points to be made that we could all collaborate on the issue and write a book why Minnick and the currant administration are not right for Idaho or the country.

      Your point is right on and absolutely correct!

    • I did try to say it in simple terms “Does he think that our country will overwhelmingly want to make this less than “free choice” move towards a total socialistic state?”
