BUSH WORKS FOR DEMOCRATS IN NEW MEXICO TODAY Dubya will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico today to introduce his plan for the mandatory inclusion of mental disorders in health care coverage. This is a long-time goal of the Democratic Party. Democrats know that mandatory mental health coverage will cause insurance premiums to skyrocket. As insurance becomes more expensive more and more employers will drop coverage --- ditto for individuals. With more individuals going without health insurance, the demand for government intervention will increase
just what the Democrats want --- another excuse to push socialized medicine.
Today???? It has been going along for a while.
Bush is pushing us in a direction which will put us like Canada on health care. I have not heard him condemn it and I have proof he endorses Universal Health Care. So where will it all lead too? Look at this www.,georgewbush.com article and then look up Tenn Care and Tennessee State Income tax in this forum and it is obvious. What did Universal health Care do to Tennessee?

Tennessee Governor Becomes 22nd To Endorse George W. Bush
AUSTIN Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist today endorsed Governor George W. Bush for President.
"I am pleased to join Governor Bushs campaign and will work hard in Tennessee to help him win the nomination and the Presidency," said Governor Sundquist at a Nashville news conference. "I have known Governor Bush and his family for many years, and I know how important public service is to them."
"As a colleague of Governor Bushs, I have watched him become one of the strongest governors in the country. His record in Texas is outstanding, and many of his innovative programs have served as models for the nation. Governor Bush is a proven leader who has the unique ability to unite people and accomplish success. I look forward to working with him and his team, as we gain support from Memphis to Mountain City for this dynamic leader," added Governor Sundquist.
"Governor Sundquist is a valued colleague and a good, close friend, and I am honored to have his support" said Governor Bush. "Don is devoted to welfare reform and better education for the people of Tennessee. His help will be important to my campaign in the Volunteer State. I intend to wage a vigorous, winning effort in Tennessee, not only in the primary, but the general election as well."
Re-elected to a second term last year with a record 69 percent of the vote, Governor Sundquist has initiated unprecedented reforms in Tennessee in the areas of welfare, government and crime, while placing a special emphasis on Tennessee children. Under his watch, the growth of government spending has been cut by more than half; the number of employable adults on welfare has been reduced by 60 percent; and Tennessee became the first state in the nation to connect every public school and library to the Internet and to offer universal health care coverage to all children.
Pete Dominici has a realitive that suffers from mental problems so this is something that Dominici has been working on for some time. Of course that does not excuse the fact that such a move would result is a degree of economic destruction, but such is the blindness of political power.
Unfortunately it seems when some attain a leval of economic wealth and or political power, they get a "play God" complex and do not heed the words of the founders related to constraint nor Biblical truth that they indeed are NOT God.
I suppose that if they themselves want to go off and play God, well, that's ok with me. But for some strange reason these "I have arrived and I'm such hot shit" types always seem to choose to play God with MY wealth or MY freedom or MY family.
Makes you wonder why that is just a little doesn't it?
Exactly: by mandating that insurance companies cover "mental health," --including prescriptions -- in all its ambiguous glory, to the same degree as physical health, health care insurance premiums, which balloon each year, will be pushed out of reach of even more Americans and small businesses. How do we remedy the grave situation of so many Americans without health care? Easy: government health care.
