Creitz spreading lies

In regards to "Conservatives can't sit out" (Letters to the Editor, The Signal, Sept. 26):

It appears William Creitz is once more spreading falsehoods and claiming they are true.

I think he actually believes anything he reads or hears as long as it is from an "approved source" such as Rush Limbaugh.

Once again Creitz is making statements such as "the president is after bigger game - total government control of our lives" when President Obama's predecessor, former President George W. Bush, removed many of our constitutional rights by pushing the Patriot Act through the Republican-controlled congress. Creitz was quiet.

Creitz states there are numerous ways to provide health care for the uninsured, but gives no hint as to whether he, or someone he knows of, can and will elucidate those numerous ways.

He blames Obama for "double digit unemployment, the collapse of the mortgage, banking and auto industries."

Even conservative economists recognize that Obama inherited that mess from his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Our national debt was created primarily by Bush and his need to do battle in Iraq while saying that we will find our enemy, Osama bin Laden, hiding in Afghanistan.

As for the health care bill, if Creitz was paying attention he would learn that the Senate and the House both have bills that do not provide for most of what Obama has said he wants in health care reform.

It has also been said by everyone seriously involved in trying to make health care affordable for people that any bill will not give the government control over health care, or come between the patient and the doctor, unlike the current insurance companies who have and do now.

In fact, the government plan is supposed to provide proper rules for charges and methods of payment to the medical professionals and protection against people losing their coverage if they get sick, whereas the insurance industry currently determines whether or not you can have a specific treatment for a specific illness, and if they will or will not pay for the treatment.

That is coming between the doctor and patient. Creitz, however, thinks this is all right as long as the government does not do it. Or possibly he does not understand what he is parroting.

Creitz, I am old enough to remember when conservative Republicans and the Republican party were actually interested in working with the president to improve the lives of their constituents and not in being rabble-rousers and political flunkies who follow someone named Rush.
