Dr. Mary Headrick http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/dr-mary-headrick/ If you read the news the morning after the Aug. 2 primary elections for Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District, you might have never known a Democrat was running for that office. But Mary Headrick emerged victorious against competitor Bill Taylor. en-us <function copyright at 0x6139398> Fri, 31 Aug 2012 20:21:20 GMT Dr Headrick: "alternative"?
And maybe more thoughtful? She's mad at Bill Gates "for threatening public education and competitors." Do tax-paid schools encourage competitors? Do we pay for Mr Gates's product whether we use it or use another? Is his offered at no charge to the user, as if it cost nothing? If public education were subject to the Sherman Antitrust Act would it be declared a monopoly? Is she mad at Jim Scales and his successor for not subjecting their system to level-playing-field competition? Does it bother her about President Obama that he sent his daughters to private school while trying to deny the same option to poor residents using the D.C. voucher program to escape the most expensive and worst public schools in the world? (Possibly I exaggerate, but not by much.) Sometimes I think the nanny state (babysitter government), or liberalism, consists of rich people taking options away from poor people. (Bush said we can't buy cheap drugs from Canada.) She thinks she has answers. Has she even asked questions, as we fundamentalists do? ('Everything I say, you should regard not as a statement but as a question'--Neils Bohr to his graduate students. See also Socrates.)

In her own profession, medicine, would she de-monopolize doctors? I once went to the ER for pain from a toothache, figuring I needed an antibiotic to kill an infection and a strong painkiller so I could sleep. I think the ER wanted $400. I paid $50; insurance paid $100 and got the ER to write off the rest. So there was a $400 medical expense that produced nothing whatsoever; I could've talked with a pharmacist and gotten what I needed. (In Pakistan, where I grew up, anyone who walked into a drugstore with the money could buy anything it had in stock.) That $400 expense was due to law, not to the cost of care. Care to let competitors into your own field, Dr? Or even think about it?

Why should a doctor wanting to open an office here have to get approval from a board? Let him try. If we can't support his/her services, let him flip burgers or try elsewhere. If he can, supply up means cost down.

Likewise for other professions--barbers and taxi drivers, for instance, which use laws to protect themselves from competition. Let the poor sell such services, profiting as producers and benefiting from lower prices.

Elect Mary Headrick In our local TN 3rd US congressional District the Democratic candidate we need to elect is Dr. Mary Headrick.
The other Democratic candidate is Eric Stewart, He is running for the TN 4th District US Congressional Seat.
If the voters want to get rid of the "stalemate" in the US House of Representives then they need to vote for and elect the Democratic candidates, doing away with the Republican obstructionist in the House and the Senate. This will give President Obama the backing he needs to get this Republic's job growth of production and manufacturing jobs here in the USA.

People Forced Into Poverty Even with the 50 million people without jobs and income to afford Healthcare insurance, the "Affordable Health care Plan" will provide these families a path for Health care. Did the Republicans care or have a plan to help the people living in "forced poverty" or would the Republicans let the people "fend" on their own as they are saying? If anyone does not believe this obstructive plan of the Republicans is not occurring, then you have to be one of them and part of the planned destruction of this Republic. Otherwise, why are the people buying into the Republican Party's objectives, along with the other opponents of President Obama?

What roles do VOTERS want the gov. to play ]]> http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/dr-mary-headrick/ daf477b6-f2ef-11e1-bda4-1231394043be Thu, 30 Aug 2012 18:12:58 GMT It is the VOTERS' choices! There is not any sensible reasoning or understanding of the tactics or the strategies being used by the opponents of President Obama because of what they are wanting to do in continuing to prevent the recovery of the deep recession, keeping the US on the verge of another great depression or even causing it to fall into another great depression. Why would the voters even think about voting for the Republicans under normal conditions, much less during all of the unfinished crisis issues/conditions that their last administration left this Republic in? It appears that the last Republican administration actions were deliberate in trying to weaken the US government's role by more than doubling of the National Debt during the Bush/Cheney eight years, leaving a long list of unfunded policies/conditions for President Obama to pay for.
