Listen up everyone. There is only one way to even start to resolve this issue and that is to vote! If they are in office, vote them out. Flip this congress upside down. They represent the interest of big business, not the people.
The influx of immigrants is due to our inability to negotiate decent trade deals….nafta, cafta, nau, peru, columbia, china, viet nam, africa, india, on and on, u name it.
Not one of these trade deals is written with the interest of the American in mind. If there is, it's not enforced, i.e., inspections @ borders stopped by biggest lobbyist in D.C., Walmart. The law of marking “country of origin” labels was mandated by our congress almost 10 years ago….Walmart, the largest importer of Chineese goods in the wolrd, keeps it blocked with “corporate dollars”….call Joe Biden and ask him.
We've got two choices to stop this mess and turn it around, Dennis K or Mike Gravel, democrates, or Ron Paul, Republican……pick your weapon, get informed and vote.

Speaking of sunsets, I remember when we taxed ourselves to build the new water treatment bldg. I don't believe those taxes were ever sunsetted.
Let's not forget that the property taxes in Craig were raised tremendously for homes and businesses over the last few years.
We were told we needed to get caught up with the rest of the country. As you can see, the rest of the country is deflating and things are not looking good.
Where is all that money? I mean, we were taxed just because.

If we're the owners of the hospital, why is it that we can't afford to use it? Unless one has insurance they are haunted by collection agencies until they file for backruptsy.

Consumption taxes are paid by everyone - “sales tax”. That means for gas, food, etc. Anytime you or anyone else, legal or illegal, spends a dime in the county we collect. Think of how much we could have already been collecting in the bars around town. They too may need our hospital.
This is a major issue on the presidential campaign ballot this year, fair tax for everyone, we should get on board with this theory and take a step towards it.
I believe the hospital initiative is going to fail in it's current state. The hospital is a “For Profit” business whos profits are not shared with the people.
If the hospital wants our money to build it they should have to pay us back with interest. Is anyone out there aware of what is going on in this nation? The “Credit Crunch”, dollar falling below 78 cents? Our economy is in major trouble right now whether you see it or not. Moffat county is fortunate at the moment since Halliburton has been unleased on the country. (We should be collecting money from all of this). We could be collecting consumption taxes for 3 years from these workers and then readjusted the loan amount against that.
btw, I'm not mad at anyone, just realistic.

I appreciate an informed and accurate post.

This is a NO VOTE for me as well as all my other homeowner friends. There is a quiet rebellion against public financing of this hospital mostly because it won't add additional beds (so what's the point)? Furthermore, lack of professionals to come work here is another issue. I know, you tell us if we build it they will come. Where is the proof of this? We have a major doctor and nurse shortage in this country. because of government interference.
If the hospital administration would quit taking government funds and quit being ran by the government things might be different. They charge the maximum for everything because of government interfering.
Also, the failure of this Federal Administration to secure our borders has put the cost of health care to illegals in our county on the tax payers of the state. Hosiptals are closing around the country because they can't afford to operate any longer because of this issue. Our illegal population has grown from zero a few years ago to thousands…..I don't think so.
Our government announced last week that our social security checks and MediCare payments will quit in approximately 7 years, (give Allard & Salazar a call).
On top of that, if one doesn't have insurance, one can not afford to use this “public paid” hospital.
Until these projects are paid for equally, across the board, say a 1% county consumption tax across the board, I will continue to promote the NO VOTE.
btw, the school. Everyone in the free world knows that remodels cost twice as much as new construction. I will pay for a brand new school but no way for a remodel. I'm promoting a no vote on this also.
It's obvious our locals learn from our failed Federal Government policies of doing things bass ackwards. Again, an across the board consumption tax (we could have really cleaned up with all the oil and gas workers in town).

The Mexican government is not accepting criminal deportations. They'll be right back. Also, our courts now have to deal with the Mexican government in criminal cases. The Treaty's that Bush has signed has given up the rights of our courts, our State courts….look at Texas.

Google Ron Paul and let's start a discussion on real issues that matter to the American people.
Don't let the main stream media elect our next president without a legitimate debate.
Ron Paul has won most of the straw polls across this nation. He's a strict Constitutionalist, wants small government and doesn't owe one single favor to corporate America, which by the way is why the main stream media blackout on this man.
The internet is a different story, he's number one. He's also raised more money than Romney and McCain, these two candidates are in debt.
Why? Because the internet is the only thing the American people have left which is not regulated by the Feds. btw, they voted this week to give us four more years of not regulating it.
Check him out at his web site, RonPaulFor President2008.com and get informed.
Dr. Ron Paul has cured me of my apathy, the first politician (statesman) who “deserves” the vote of the American people.

Republican Senator from Texas announced on the senate floor Monday morning, in front of the cspan cameras that social security checks and MediCare payments will stop in 7 years.
The Washington Post this past week wrote that the Social Security Trust Fund has nothing but paper in it, IOU's that amount to over 2 trillion dollars.
They are paying benefits with current collected funds.
The nation is in serious trouble. Is anyone listening?
I hope this county, as well as the state, has a back-up plan for their elderly.
or see results without voting.
