The new (Suicidal) GOP establishment

There are 104 comments on the New York Post story from Feb 4, 2013, titled The new (Suicidal) GOP establishment. In it, New York Post reports that:

The New Establishment's leaders claim to speak for the very loose agglomeration of voters who gathered three years ago under the banner of the Tea Party, and they angrily assert that anyone who has a different view of how best to achieve conservative aims isn't a conservative at all.

The is always some one who has to say no.
there are flaws in either system . their systems flaws do cause inconvenience but don't cost life where as our systems flaws cost us a lots of $$$. I do believe that if we could cut through the baldersquat and create some hybrid we might be best off.
Not at all, we have proven time and time again that the government programs don't work, medicare will be insolvent in 2024, we need to get the government completely out of healthcare. We can have a system where people take the same money that is going to taxes and spend it in a private market, the only thing the government would be involved in is a safety net for the poor but even that would be provided by a competitive market with government funding.

People forget that up until the advent of the income tax Americans kept all of their earnings, Despite this, we still had: schools, colleges, roads, vast railroads, streets, subways, the Army, Navy and the Marine Corps,(who managed to win 8 wars). Why do we need to be extorted to pay for a failing system.

I do agree. Obamacare isn't doing anything that insurance companies don't already do.
And I LOVE hockey. What positon do you play?
The U.S. is far more aggressive in treating it, especially in cases that are deemed inoperable or incurable. Our system of deliver is much faster, too, which is a key element with cancer.
Consequently, our cure rate and survival rates are higher here in the U.S..
And when the health care debate started in 2009, I did research and compared a lot of stats...our infant mortality rates are higher, but the statistics aren't uniform, not only between the U.S. and Canada, but throughout the world. What one country counts as fatality, another country counts a miscarriage. By a uniform statisical measure, we are still higher, but the gap is much narrower and there are two areas where the U.S. population differs from populations in other industrialized countries that do explain the difference.
... is as bad as the politically inspired make it out to be, but that is the trouble with politics, isn't it?
A love of hockey is proof of good taste. The sober look at the health care issue is proof of common sence
Two of WNY's better high school goalies are girls...

There never was time when Americans kept all of their earnings.
Prior to the Income Tax the government existed on tariffs and excise taxes.
Interest thing is during the approximate 100 years that we have had an income tax have been the most profitable that we have known. That we became a super power in every sense of the word.
Your first Paragraph includes the claim that it is been proven that government programs don't work...
1) some one forgot to tell the Canadians they have far better results at 2\3 of the cost.
2) I don't feel that we are dumber than Canada, do you?
