    One of the daughters of former President George W. Bush isn't following the Republican Party line when it comes to the issue of the health care legislation that cleared Congress last spring without any GOP support.

    In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Barbara Bush said she's "glad" Democrats passed the massive spending measure and President Barack Obama signed it into law.

    "Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?" the 28-year old said. "Health should be a right for everyone."

    Asked specifically what she though about the president's health care initiative, Bush replied with a smile, "That is a good question - obviously the health care reform bill was highly debated by a lot of people and I guess I'm glad the bill was passed."


    The Democratic health care effort was deeply opposed by Republican members of Congress who derided its more-than $800 billion price tag and said it will do little to contain health rising care costs down the road.

    Bush runs the Global Health Corps, a nonprofit group that aims to connect "outstanding young leaders with organizations working on the front lines in order to promote global health equity," according to the organization's website.

    In the same interview, Bush said she doesn't see herself ever running for political office.

    Just more evidence that the Bush family is a bunch of progressives. Of course if you listen to MSNBC you would be led to believe that they are a bunch of anti government extremists

    When will the Left wake up and realize that the "center" keeps moving left and has been for the last 100 years?

    Actually the Left's way of thinking has been the dominate one for ohhhhh, I don't know....Maybe most of the human history!

    The human race has endured most of its existence with oppressive and tyranical governments. Only in the last couple hundred years have humans enjoyed the individualism that accompanies true liberty.

    You seem to think that somehow giving more power to government this time will somehow yield a different result. :cuckoo:

    Funding Hitler = Grand pappy Bush
    Funding Iran = Bush Sr.
    Funding Afghanistan = Bush Jr.

    Nah, nothing extreme there between those murderous cut throats.

    '

    So.... They're "Anti government extremists" because they fund other governments?

    Not defending their actions, but just trying to figure out your logic.


    By the way, what you just described is actually a form of nation building which just so happens to be the opposite of what true conservatives believe. We shouldn't be influencing any nation with money and bribes not to mention those shit hole nations.

    It's not a question of 'more' or 'less' government, it's about 'correct' government.

    Government has a role in society - if we don't for the most part agree to that vague concept we may as well bag this discussion, crack another brew and wait for the anarchy to begin.

    Who should have ownership responsibilities and ownership rewards for the bureaucracies that keep our economy humming along?

    :eusa_think: Doesn't seem like such a difficult question...​

    Actually, it's kind of a bitch. The obvious one is security. Any Job that requires a gun to preform should be managed by We, The People, agreed?

    What about roads? Should we see what happens if we let roads and bridges just happen according to the whims of those who can afford to build them?

    What should 'Government' keep itself busy with on any given day? :eusa_think:
