    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    If You Happen To Be Out

    Tags: Michigan, Paul Scott, Recall, Event (all tags)

    Stop over at 12:30 p.m. at: Grand Blanc Mall, 12821 S. Saginaw St, Grand Blanc, MI. And sorry for the late notice. Show up to support Paul Scott as the MEA attempts to effect his recall from office.

    I am not a big fan of Paul Scott.  He is not a BAD guy, but one that has a bad instinct as seen with the unconstitutional smoking ban vote. So when he is trying to obtain higher office, you will likely see me opine to his political detriment, or at least support opponents who have a better understanding of appropriate law.

    But right now the MEA is flexing and using Scott as a bully might use the weak link on the school grounds; to intimidate any others who might oppose them.  But the MEA is rolling the dice a bit.  CapCon notes:

    "When the MEA engineered the petition drive to recall Scott, it was taking a risk. If Scott manages to win the recall election, the MEA could have a tough time arguing that voters have rejected Snyder's policies. That makes Scott's recall election a high stakes event. With no other major election issues this fall, Republicans and groups that generally support them are willing to spend money in the 51st. This, in turn, is forcing the MEA and other union forces to spend money there as well."

    In the dice game, "craps", rolling a seven after establishing a point takes it all away and the house wins, and rewards those who bet against it.

    Lets see a seven. Pay the Don't pass.

    Let's take a look at Representative Scott's voting record.

    • Imposing a new health care "fee" in order to get more money from the feds: He supported.

    • Increasing a "tipping fee" on all Michigan Taxpayers: He supported.

    • Compelling auto insurers to give info to the state: He supported.

    • Imposing the requirement that we obtain the government's permission before we purchase a product with is used by 99.999%+ by those purchasing it for the purpose stated on the box: He supported.

    • And my personal fav, jacking Michigan Taxpayers for money that the state never actually needed: He supported.

    Sorry, Jason, but supporting Scott is just like rolling snake eyes.

    Hopefully after the Mi-GOP realizes that there isn't a groundswell of support coming from the grassroots supporting damaged goods like Scott, that just might compel them to take a second look at how they're voting and why it doesn't match their stated position.

    How much propaganda can be thrown at saving this "Big Tent" MI-GOP recall Rep.?  Now the Michigan Chamber of Commerce is involved in this too?  Well, allow me to note a little RINO something about that dysfunctional group too:

    The Michigan Chamber of Commerce today announced its endorsement of two Congressional candidates and five incumbents who are seeking re-election on November 2, 2010.

    The two candidates endorsed by the Michigan Chamber are: Jason Allen, who is vying to fill an open seat in the 1st Congressional District; ...

    Jason Allen?  That on the goonoin take along with Richardville Republican?  Disgusting.

    But wait, there's more...

    The five Congressional incumbents endorsed by the Michigan Chamber are: Dave Camp (4th District); Fred Upton (6th District); Mike Rogers (8th District); Candice Miller (10th District); and Thad McCotter (11th District).

    Do we need to recite their RINO names individually too?  Or, perhaps just looking to the Wall on the left is good enough for now?

    C'mon J-man, this saving anything with an 'R' dangling off its last name mentality is bizarre-o-land kind of stuff that the Party of Brewer and Whatshername Schlitz thrives in.  Making excuses for any clown that could not figure out the basic principles of Private Property Rights isn't worth saving.  Should we all be shocked that the ChiComs have no respect for private property rights?  No, I didn't think so.  But asshats in the "Big Tent" GOP like Rep. Scott didn't get it either.  Save him?  With the Chamber endorsing a Goonion lackey like Allen?  I don't think so.

    Perhaps the GoverNerd can get Scott employment with the ChiComs on his tour of fellating them for their time delayed NAFTA Bridge appeasement.

    Other than that, please pass along some useful advice to the embattled MI-GOP congresscritter for me... If you're gonna tap it, wrap it.

    The Party can, and should, do better than this.

    . . . elsewhere, I think that a more appropriate course of action with regard to the Scott recall is to plaster his mug over on that wall on the left, along with a link to a well-written (and diplomatically-worded) article explaining why he ought to go.

    My tea party connections over in that neck of the woods have told me that there's a reason that the grassroots is sitting this one out.  It's the same reason that the necessary signatures were gathered in a mere two weeks.  The common consensus seems to be that Rep. Scott is one of the six true stinkers that needs to be removed . . . by any legal/lawful means necessary.

    MEA needs to lose (none / 0) (#7)
    by Republican Michigander on Sat Sep 17, 2011 at 08:00:52 PM EST
    If you don't support Paul Scott, the best way to handle this is in a primary by another Republican.

    The last thing we need right now is the MEA to get a win in a swing district.

    That will cause more compromises, more weak policies on school matters, and long term trouble because people will be even more afraid of the MEA.

    On that issue... (5.00 / 1) (#15)

    ...I'll be sure to pass that along to the Mackinac Center.

    "Introduced by Sen. Roger Kahn (R) on April 27, 2011, to repeal a 6 percent use tax on medical services health care providers, and replace it with a 1 percent tax on health insurance claims. These taxes are designed to "game" the federal Medicaid system in ways that result in higher federal payments to Michigan's medical welfare system. This bill creates the new tax."

    Didn't change very much here (except for the date & sponsor):

    "Passed 65 to 42 in the House on August 24, 2011, to repeal a 6 percent use tax on medical services health care providers, and replace it with a 1 percent tax on health insurance claims. These taxes are designed to "game" the federal Medicaid system in ways that result in higher federal payments to Michigan's medical welfare system. This bill creates the new tax."
