A new Nebraska mother is thankful for her special overnight delivery at Methodist Women's Hospital.
Alex: I will reserve judgement on the Hillary Kaine ticket for another post, since im not crazy about Hillary at all . My comments are on a few other things like the illegal imigration issue which has propped up all of the sudden. Under Obama, immigration is down and less immigrants are traveling across the border now than in the last 25 years. Also he has the most deportations for illegal immigrants on record more than any president in history. Republican or Democrat. It is a fact. Also Obama has used executive actions less than Bush Jr Clinton and Reagan. It is a fact. Trickle down econmics does not work. Look at Alabama and Kansas, West Virginia who decided to cut taxes on the top income earners and buisness as compared to progressive tax systems of California North Carolina and Virginia. who at the same time instituted more comprehensive approaches concerning tax policy and cities in California even raised minimum wage. The former states all have deficits and layed off public workers and have had credit down grades and poor growth, and the latter states all have surpluses and a strong growth and economies. Also congress has been in the hands of Republicans for 7 years. Congress and the legislature have the power of the purse and write laws. What laws have the quote unquote conservatives written for the us in the middle class lately. I mean evey one has their hands on what you can or cannot do in the privacy of your home or with your own health care but what about jobs schools, debt, and college tutition reform? It has not been a cause for the Republican party. Now from this post you may think that im a liberal but i am not i am a Social Conservative ( The name doesnt mean much any more so ill say Right leaning Independant. My concerns are mounting debt and collage tution costs. Increase in transportation medical prices . Lack of affordable health care , i have to work on weekends now which means less time to be with my family and a role model for my kids. Less time for ball games recitals and to help them grow learn and adapt and become the wonderful adults i know they will be . Also I dont understand prison recidivsm and the lock them up culture of society. We should get involved now because we are definetely involved when we cant travel for fear of our homes being broken into, or feeling unsafe when visiting a city just to show my son the Washington Monument. Orwhen we have to sleep with guns next to our night stands. Wouldnt it be better to just get involved , retrain and educate felons with technical skills or jobs and help them accumate back into society some how? Or teat drug addiction as a health issue not a criminal one. I do know how but im saying these are things we should talk about. heres one that killss every one. Unions are associated with less than 1% of American Companyies as of today. lest than .01 percent actually. Middle class has the least representation as far as collective labor in the last 50 years. Maybe thats why incomes and wages are stagnant? I dont know. point is theres alotwe have to think about as far as a societly and name calling or thinking to old talking points is a waste of time and not condusive to progress.
