U.S. Senate Candidate Stewart Starts 20 County Bicycle Blitz

Cedar Rapids, Iowa - July 8, 2014 - Iowa businesman Rick Stewart announced a bicycling blitz through 20 of Iowa's northern tier counties, continuing his U.S. Senate campaign promising Iowans a smart alternative to far left Democrats and far right Republicans.

Obamacare

Policy areas: 
Healthcare
Rick's thoughts: 

 

Hasn't enough been written about Obamacare? Do I really have to add to the stock of hot air? The day is long and the burden is heavy – please let me rest.

 

OK I'm going to try to humour myself up with a story told to my traveling friends gathered around the fireplace. Light your pipes and close your eyes. But don't fall asleep! Too late for old Barry – he doesn't want to hear any more stories tonight.

VA hospitals

Policy areas: 
Pensions
Rick's thoughts: 

 

Well what did you think was going to happen? Did you really think some clever government hack had solved the allocation of scarce resources problem and decided to give it to the VA hospitals for free rather than taking it to the private sector and making maybe a hundred billion dollars or so when her company went public? You gotta think a little harder.

 

Medicaid

Policy areas: 
Healthcare
Rick's thoughts: 

 

Medicaid is for poor people. Not all poor people, just some poor people. Quite strange. Actually, now that we have Obamacare, Medicaid is for all poor people. I suppose that's strange, too.

 

As you might expect, rich people have figured out how to give poor people the worst medical care in the country. Yawn. Worse even than the care people with no insurance at all get. Yikes! Once again Scott Atlas gives you the details.

 

Medicare

Policy areas: 
Healthcare
Rick's thoughts: 

 

What a mess.

 

You've heard about the elephant in the room that no one is talking about? Well this is the bull elephant. The freakishly huge bull elephant. The angry bull elephant. The one chained up to a chain link fence with a bicycle cable like the one some crooks cut when my last bicycle was locked up to the bike rack at Kirkwood Community College in the middle of the afternoon. Not gone in 60 seconds – gone in 60 nanoseconds.
