Patriots,

Are you tired of going to the polls in November and finding yourself voting for the lesser of two evils?

Well, by making sure you support the right candidate for the primary with money and help, vote in the August 5 primary, and push friends and relatives to do the same, you can insure the best person is on  the ballot come the November general election.

 Support Matt Maddock to replace Mike Kowall who has a more liberal voting record than 12 democrat senators. Support Matt Maddock with whatever you can, no amount is too small. He needs your help now. 

If he does not win the primary, you will have to choose between the lesser of two evils in November

 

Matt Maddock: A True Conservative

COMMON CORE SLIDES

Urgent Education Issues 2013

Why Fight the Common Core Initiative? 

1) Michigan, local school & parents lose control 

2) The standards are unproven

     The assessments are not yet written

3) These standards are not Best Practice, and cause

     teachers to use bad practice

4) More cost to states (taxpayers)

     Hundreds of millions $$

5) Michigan will lose ground on school choice

6) Federally directed education is unconstitutional

AND IT WON’T HELP KIDS LEARN!! 

 

What can YOU do to Stop Common Core? 

1.  Call or write Governor Rick Snyder & Legislators

repeal and rescind Common Core Standards & Assessment

2. Advocate with friends, family & teachers

3. Sign the petition at Team Ben Common Core

         Learn more: Americans For Prosperity

         The Heritage Foundation – Education Issues

         American Principles Project

         Stop Common Core in Michigan

 

What should we do instead?

  • Improve standards thru evidence of best practice
  • Continue to expand school choice
  • Use the MEAP
  • Develop assessments that “advise instruction”
  • Build the teaching “profession”

Obamacare Number of the Day: $621,000,000,000

 

In addition, the report by the CMS actuaries debunked the notion that Obamacare helped cause the recent slowdown in health spending—or that the slowdown is likely to continue:

Annual national health spending growth is projected to remain near 4 percent through 2013, primarily as a result of the recent recession and modest recovery. This projection is consistent with the historical relationship between health spending and economic cycles….

Continued slower health spending growth after the recent economic downturn has raised the question of whether a more fundamental change is occurring in the health sector. However, econometric and actuarial analysis by the CMS Office of the Actuary of the past fifty years of National Health Expenditure Accounts data…suggests that health spending growth is likely to accelerate once economic conditions improve significantly.

Instead, the actuaries conclude, the recession and anemic economic recovery bear the bulk of the “credit” for the current slowdown in health spending growth.

Finally, the actuarial report analyzes the sources of some of the increased health spending due to Obamacare. And, as Exhibit 4 (below) notes, one of the fastest sources of growth in the health sector will be “government administration.” Spending on government administration—which includes salaries for federal, state, and local bureaucrats, as well as computer and other overhead costs for government programs—will more than double, rising from $31.1 billion in 2010 (the year Obamacare passed) to $70.4 billion in 2022.

Exhibit4

So even as Obamacare is raising overall health spending, despite the lingering effects of the economic recession, more of that spending will pay the salaries of government bureaucrats and regulators. That’s not the kind of change Americans can believe in
