Farmfest kicks off

Peterson, the chair of the House Ag Committee, does not expect the pace to slow, as lawmakers continue to grapple with economy and health care regulation bills.

“We’ve been very busy, and I expect to be in the fall,” Peterson said.

Walz, who was a teacher in Mankato before being elected in Minnesota’s First District, agreed with Peterson on the rapid pace of legislation. “Thank God I supervised the lunchroom for 20 years. I’m prepared for total chaos,” he said.

Peterson and Walz, also an agriculture committee member, haven’t been directly involved in the health care regulation debate, but are meeting with stakeholders during the August recess.

“I’ll see if there’s anything I can support,” Peterson said, adding that none of the four bills that have been introduced and the one pending introduction have his support yet.

Change, transparency and market reform in health care are needed, Walz said, stressing that medical care decisions under new health care regulations must remain between a patient and their doctor. “This (legislation) is to bring market reform,” he said. “No market can function without referees.”

Unfortunately Tim Waltz is my socialist-fascist-commie pig bastard, supporting down to a tee, any demoRAT party bill brought forth. I call his Washington DC office and his Mankato office at least on a weekly basis, and vehemently argue & stress my conservative concerns to his libtard staffers. All to no avail!!! Waltz & the demoRATs are hard-core socialist-fascist-commie pigs!!!

The good news is, I don’t think “cap and trade” can pass before the 2010 elecions. It’s widely viewed by the voters as a big tax, and rightly so.

It’s absolutely a power grab, unnecessary, and will have no discernible effect on the global temperature. It has the added “advantage” that we simply won’t have enough energy for our economy to grow properly.

I understand that Rep. Peterson was given some additional funding for pet projects by Nancy Pelosi in exchange for his yes vote on cap and trade. His comment that cap and trade could be fixed later is disingenuous. If the bill was flawed why did he vote for it in the first place?

After the government regulates farming out of existence there’s not going to be any lunchroom.
