Do you smell that fresh air -- the sense of freedom? Yes, Congress is out of town, which means that Americans are now free, free at last. Soon a GOP-led House of Representatives will represent the true interests of the American people. This will include writing laws that the American people understand, passing laws that liberate the private sector from the shackles that have been in place for decades, and cutting back on the size and the scope of the government industrial complex. What is most important, however, is actually repealing many of the tyrannical initiatives that the Democrats passed in the last two years, with government-run health care (Obamacare) being at the top of the list. The idea that, in a country in which thousands of television stations are available, 300,000 Iphone apps can be downloaded, millions of items are available for purchase online (without any shipping costs) to those living in the most rural locations, that the government would be the most suited party to decide for you how you should get health care is absurd. How can anyone make such an irrational argument? Well, that explains why House Speaker Pelosi said that "we have to pass the law so that you find out what is in it." Of course! If she told you what was in it, you would have been even more vocal in your opposition. Not that it would matter to Pelosi. Or her fellow Democrats. They knew that we would strongly oppose the law, and she decided to pass it over our objections. Hopefully the Democrats will be in the minority for 100 years. After all, we have a lot of laws to repeal.
