This Blog is maintained by Mike Barron, Executive Director and Founder of the New Independent Party. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Party, its Board of Governors or its Members.

To post a comment just click on the "comments" link just after the date of the original post.

Comments on the blog have to be moderated before they will appear.  The reason for this is the tendency for those with extreme opinions to attempt to force out other voices by intimidation. I apologize for this format and I will attempt to review comments as quickly as possible. All respectful comments, regardless of political orientation, will be published.

If you are reluctant to include your email address when posting a comment, just put xxx@yyy in the blank. Your email address will not be published if you choose to include it.

If you would like to start an entirely new thread on the blog, just post it as a comment to the most recent blog post.  Alternatively, you can post a comment on the post set up for starting new discussions. I will establish it as a new thread. Don't forget to tell me what you would like to title the thread. 

"Comeback America" by David Walker: Health Care

This book, on America's fiscal crisis, was written by David Walker, former Comptroller of the U.S. He has been touted recently as a possible third party candidate for President.  Unfortunately, the book came out before ObamaCare was fully baked. It is not clear how he would have come down on the final product. He also does not mention voucher or refundable tax credit based systems like the one embodied in the Party's Platform, so we don't know how he would feel about it.

Having said that his diagnosis of the problems with the current system matches up very well with that laid out in the Party Platform.
