Republican congressman Dennis Rehberg has been named chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee. In that position, he is responsible for overseeing spending on health care and human services. As his first act in the new position, Rehberg has vowed that, “I’m going to fulfill my promise to the people of Montana that to the best of my ability I will defund Obamacare if we’re not able to repeal it,” Rehberg believes “These issues are far too important to be overrun and ruined by government ineptitude and inefficiency,“.
In keeping with his view that anything and everything run by the government (except congressman Rehberg) is inept and inefficient, Montana Democratic Party chairman Jim Elliot is asking that Denny give up the inept, inefficient government-sponsored health care plan that he receives as a member of Congress in good standing. As one of the richest members of Congress, Rehberg certainly doesn’t need to subject himself and his family to such a poorly run and extravagant program paid for by Montana taxpayers. “After months of railing against common sense health insurance reform with no solutions of his own, Congressman Rehberg ought to put his money where his mouth is and stop having taxpayers foot his health care bill,” Elliot said.
The Bugle agrees with Jim Elliot that it is time for Rehberg to stand on principle and drop his government-sponsored health care plan in favor of a much more efficiently run private insurance program. If you agree, please drop Congressman Denny a polite note and encourage him to do what is right for Montana. Tell Denny it’s time to remove his foot and place his money where his mouth is.
