State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi's is touting her new version of government health care as being less costly. Not so according to the Heritage Foundation that reports:
“The Congressional Budget Office released its preliminary score of the bill and while some in the media have been reporting its net cost of $894 billion, the total cost of health reform legislation is more like $1.5 trillion. So, Speaker Pelosi is essentially right back where she started—with a huge two thousand page plan that carries a hefty price tag.”
The Heritage Foundation includes a graph detailing the plan’s expenses.
There’s more. Care to guess how many new boards, bureaucracies, commissions, and programs are established in the Pelosi legislation? 10? 20? 30?
