A new radio ad paid for by the Democratic National Committee takes aim at Rep. John Campbell for voting against a Democrat-backed health-care reform bill. Campbell is one of 32 House Republicans named in a DNC “Hit List,” released after the House of Representatives narrowly passed a controversial health-care bill with little Republican support. “In last year’s historic election, voters in California’s 48th Congressional District supported President Obama and his call for change,” a female announcer’s voice in the new radio spot says.

The health-care bill provides incentives for employers that currently offer private health insurance to dump their employees into a government-run system. Furthermore, the bill is financed on the backs of our seniors by taking hundreds of millions of dollars away from Medicare, and because Democrats refused to put strong verification requirements in the bill, it will result in billions of dollars being spent to provide health care for illegal immigrants.

She was in intensive care for five days, and Nate was in neonatal care for two weeks. At the end of their hospital stay, the medical bills reached more than $50,000, even though the couple carried health insurance.

We pride ourselves on being a democracy second to none, a shining light for the rest of the world to emulate. The Greatest Generation fought a long and bloody war a continent away to safeguard democracy in Europe. We are currently fighting two prolonged, costly wars, ostensibly to bring democracy to another distant part of our globe — the Middle East. Some are even rattling their sabers to start a third war. And then there is the current reality. Forty-six million Americans have no health insurance, and their rolls are increasing each day. Those lucky enough to have insurance pay ever-increasing premiums and co-pays, for progressively diminishing coverage, if they are lucky enough to stay employed.
