If you are a teacher, did you thank Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., for heading the effort to let Washington know we have highly qualified teachers in North Dakota?
If you are a farmer, did you thank Pomeroy for being at the table to give North Dakota the best farm bill ever?
Health reform legislation brings direct benefits to rural North Dakota hospitals and providers, financially stabilizes our entire health care system, provides coverage for our 68,000 uninsured and lets families for whom insurance is unaffordable to choose to buy a private plan through an exchange.
I am so grateful to Rep. Earl Pomeroy for his vote on health care reform. Any family could end up in a situation such as ours, and Pomeroy knows that.
Let’s look past our own selfishness and show our concern for all North Dakotans.
I have noticed how Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., has stated that the reform bill has saved rural hospitals in the state.
If rural hospitals mean those in Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot, then the statement is true. But if it means rural hospitals such as those in Northwood, the statement is not true.
As a member of the North Dakota Medical Association and of the NDMA Legislative Commission and having a copy of that letter, I would like to clarify that NDMA has not explicitly supported the health care reform law. Rather, it has supported certain provisions in the law and opposed others.
It was my privilege to serve as director of the North Dakota Legislative Council for 25 years before my retirement in 2007. ...
Rick Berg, who now is running for Congress, was a disappointment as a legislative leader.
The Pomeroy approach always has been to spend, spend, spend and take, take, take. This “Washington Way” of legislating is reckless, unsustainable, imbalanced, unfair and wrong.
One glance at our federal deficit shouts that loud and clear.
