Wyoming Liberty Group
By Anthony McConnell
The people of Wyoming are banding together to prevent the federal government’s attempted takeover of healthcare in the state.
Six legislators are the initial sponsors the Healthcare Freedom Amendment and many more are expected to sign on once the bill reaches the floors of the House and Senate. The amendment specifies that the federal government does not have the authority to interfere with people’s right to make their own healthcare decisions. It also clarifies that the federal government can not penalize people for choosing not to participate in any government mandated healthcare program, such at those being roposed by the U.S. House and Senate.
In a landmark decision, which cited the Cheyenne based Wyoming Liberty Group’s amicus brief, the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 21 reversed precedence that limited the ability of Americans to freely participate in the election process.
Living conditions in post-Civil War New Orleans weren’t exactly what you would call ideal.
Water from the Mississippi River was polluted with the waste from dozens of slaughterhouses that operated about a mile up stream from the city. This waste, including intestines, blood and feces would clog around pipes that provided drinking water to the city. The pollution led to massive outbreaks of cholera, yellow fever and other diseases.
On Saturday November 7, 2009, the House of Representatives of U.S. Congress passed a comprehensive bill aimed at fundamentally reforming the national health care system. If the bill passes the Senate it will affect health insurance and health care delivery in every state. But the notion that a one-size-fits-all solution out of Washington, DC is good for every state is false. Not all states have the same problems with uninsured citizens or lack of employer-based insurance coverage.
Landowners and ranchers received rare news of relief last year from the U.S. Supreme Court. Far-flung accusations of environmental groups against landowners must now be heard with a healthy grain of salt. The question before the Court in Summers v. Earth Island Institute was just how great the role environmental activists should have in court proceedings regarding land use questions especially when those activists share no connection to the land in question.
Gov. Dave Freudenthal has ranked near the bottom of the Cato Institute’s Fiscal Policy Report Card on America’s Governors: 2008.
Freudenthal was among 13 governors to receive a D, and only Montana Gov. Brian Scheweitzer ranked lower on the D list. Three governors received As, 14 earned Bs, eight earned Cs and eight earned Fs.
