Kinzinger Fighting for Jobs. Co-Sponsor of H.R.153

Thank you for taking the time to contact me to share your concerns regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and climate change. By hearing your thoughts and concerns on the issues, I am better able to represent you in Congress.

 

As your representative, I care deeply about maintaining affordable and reliable energy. As a member of the Congressional Natural Gas Caucus, I support the expanded use of clean-burning domestic natural gas in order to create both a clean environment and millions of jobs for the American people. I also support the use of renewable energy alternatives – such as nuclear energy, clean coal technology, wind and solar energy – that take into account the impact on our environment and health, while lowering costs and creating American jobs. These resources and accompanying innovations are important to our nation achieving energy independence while respecting the environment.

 

As a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee, one of my core responsibilities is to conduct congressional oversight of the EPA to ensure the agency stays within the bounds of the law and does not negatively impact our fragile economy through the regulation of greenhouse gases. The EPA should not regulate what Congress did not legislate. With those principles in mind, I have chosen to co-sponsor H.R. 153, the Ensuring Affordable Energy Act, which Congressman Ted Poe (TX) introduced on January 5, 2011. This Act prohibits funding for the EPA to be used to implement or enforce a cap-and-trade program for greenhouse gases. As the Energy and Commerce Committee members consider and debate this or similar legislation, be assured that I will keep your views in mind.

 

Again, thank you for contacting me. It is an honor to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives. Please do not hesitate to contact me if my office can be of assistance to you on any issue of importance.

 

Sincerely,

Adam Kinzinger
Member of Congress
 
 
This is exactly why we voted this man in office. We proudly recognise his efforts in this cause, and wish him all the best.

We have One World Government, One World Law and a One World Monetary System.

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN.

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921.

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF.

5. The Attorney General of the U.S. is not employed by the U.S. But is an Agent of INTERPOL which is head quartered in Lyons, France.

6. The United States does not have any employees.

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through t…he IMF.

8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes.

9. There have not been any Judges in America since 1789. There have just been Administrators.

10. According to the GATT you must have a Social Security number.

11. You are an “Institutional Unit” in which your body and labor are pledged to the UN through the IMF.

12. We have One World Government, One World Law and a One World Monetary System.

13. Your Social Security number is your slave number. Just about everyone in the World has a Social Security number from the UN through the IMF.

14. The UN is a One World Super Government.

15. No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a Slave Colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as of 1945 to the United Nations.

16. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that “New York City was the capital of the World” and he was correct.

17. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a Trust Fund.

18. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is an Agency of the UN.

19. You own no property, slaves can’t own property. Read the Deed to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant.

20. The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

GUESS WHO AND WHAT OWNS YOU AND THE UNITED NATIONS ?

As a matter of fact the imagined President, imagined Representatives, imagined Senators, imagined Supreme Court Justices and imagined Federal Judges are not paid by the United States Government. Actually the United States Government does not have any employees They are paid by the International Monetary Fund in electrons. You see there is no such thing as the United States Government. In reality there are no Governments. There are Corporations (Fictions) such as the Federal Reserve Inc., and the United States Inc., which in fact are private corporations. The United States Inc., is just a slave management company. Guess what that makes you? If you said property, you are correct! You are Human Capital. The shares that were issued for the Federal Reserve when it was created back in 1913 only cost $100.00. That was quite the bargain.

Adam Kinsinger Comes to Joliet

Last night here in Joliet, I attended a town hall meeting with our newest representative, Adam Kinsinger. He was unpretentious, direct, disciplined. I believe he understands the enormous task he has before him, and that he is indeed determined to represent the people of his district to the best of his ability.

His opening remarks, though brief, went right to point: Cut spending, cut government and get people to work.

He first beamed, then bemoaned the 5% reduction across the board of the entire government, “We all need to sacrifice”.

His fellow members of congress, specifically the freshman class, learned of what is immediately available for the chopping block. Namely, the discretionary spending part of the overall budget. This is nothing more than an olive branch.

Next up will be the defense budget. With his background in the Air Force, he clearly wants to keep America strong. I too, hope only the very unnecessary bureaucracy will be cut, and that our brave men and women who sacrifice for our freedoms, will not want for anything in protecting our home. He made it quite clear he not only knows, but understands just how dangerous this world has become.

He then informed those in attendance, that for now, social programs will remain untouched. I not only heard, but saw, the obvious frustration he has towards this. He knows of the fraud and abuse and has ideas, whether his or by group consensus, on how to prevent further waste of our tax dollars. Unfortunately, he and his associates will have to wait. The question is, can we??

As he turned the floor over to answer questions, the first question went straight to the immediate need for jobs. He showed depth of knowledge on the subject. In fact, the first thing he would like to do, would be to eliminate the very agency created with the specific purpose of making this country self-sufficient. He knows where the problem lies, and that it is simply a matter of getting everyone to work together, to get rid of the red tape that is holding us back.

There are just two things I have a problem with.

First and foremost, he seems to believe that Obamacare has some good in it that could be kept in some form. From all I have read, it would seem easier to just start over. Quit subsidizing pharmaceutical companies, put a ceiling on lawsuits and allow the schools to do the research, although I’m sure it’s not that simple.

The other problem: taxes. While he understands how bad it is, he is inclined to reform the tax system. Simplifying the tax code and cutting corporate taxes is what he is willing to discuss. When pressed on the Fair tax proposition, he flatly declined to discuss it as a means of resolve.

These are the two biggest issues this country faces, and both are job-killers. His response to “tweak” them seems counterproductive. I, for one, hope the rest of congress moves to repeal the healthcare measure outright, and would at least, entertain the option of the Fair Tax.

Though he’s chomping at the bit to rid us of the welfare state we are in (this is the discipline in him talking), his actions speak to surrender.

Perhaps it is a matter of knowing that this president is facing impeachment and that that is the reason for dragging his heels on these issues.

Hopefully, we the people won’t have to wait too long. Though there’s a lot to be done, reforms and “tweaking” are the slow roads of discussion and debate.

I mistakenly thought we were loud and clear at the mid-terms; “We’re drowning in a sea of debt. No one here is producing so much as a life preserver, and the previous administration dropped an anchor on us”.

Our prayers are with you Representative Kinsinger, as are our eyes and ears upon you.

Move on Medicaid

In June 2009, Gov. Pat Quinn’s Taxpayer Action Board offered solid proposals to streamline Illinois’ Medicaid program — it spends roughly $14 billion a year in state and federal funds — and to conserve money. Among the panel’s proposals: Expand managed and outpatient care. Shift long-term-care patients from institutional to community settings. More effectively screen out ineligible patients.

What happened? So far, not much. But that may be changing. Lawmakers are racing toward a self-imposed deadline to concoct sweeping reforms in three realms of government: Medicaid, public education and worker’s compensation. Among the ideas under discussion by legislators assigned to modernize Medicaid:

•Moving more Medicaid recipients to managed care. That means patients are assigned a “medical home” — a doctor (often in an HMO-style clinic) who oversees their care. The state’s first mandatory managed care program, to serve an estimated 40,000 elderly and disabled recipients, has been delayed and is now set to begin in March. The plan is estimated to save the state about $200 million over five years. But Department of Healthcare and Family Services Director Julie Hamos says that there’s been “push back” from some providers and patient advocates. She has asked lawmakers for “back-up” to keep the expansion on track. That’s vital. Other states have moved more aggressively than Illinois into managed care for Medicaid recipients. Illinois needs to move faster.

•Reducing the prescription drug dispensing fee paid to pharmacists who fill prescriptions for Medicaid recipients. Hamos says the state pays $4.60 per Medicaid prescription for generic drugs and $3.40 for brand-name drugs. That’s compared to $1.36 and $1.28 under the state’s employee health care plan. The retail merchants association says paying these Medicaid fees puts Illinois in the “mainstream.” But if that’s so, it needs to move out of the mainstream and lead the way to lower fees. We say this acknowledging that pharmacists aren’t able to collect the co-pays to which they’re entitled for nearly half of Medicaid prescriptions. That’s because some recipients can’t or won’t pay.

•Tightening checks on eligibility. A U.S. Government Accountability Office report last year said 10.5 percent of federal Medicaid payments were improper — including many for ineligible recipients. That’s one reason Hamos wants lawmakers to allow DHFS to cross-check electronic data on Medicaid recipients’ income and employment to weed out ineligible enrollees. The law should allow the department to match electronic records, such as income tax returns from the Illinois Department of Revenue, with Medicaid eligibility data.
• Shifting some disabled people from costly state institutions to less expensive community care. Illinois lags the nation here too, according to a 2009 AARP report. Bottom line: Community settings “are both less costly and preferred by older adults and the physically disabled,” the governor’s Taxpayer Action Board found. In other words: This is a no-brainer, although unionized workers at state institutions historically have opposed it.

The context for the Taxpayer Action Board recommendations and the legislature’s belated interest: Illinois faces a gargantuan budget deficit that won’t be tamed unless lawmakers get serious about Medicaid reform. “It’s times like this, when we really have a budget crisis, that we should be pushing the envelope and trying to see what we can really achieve in all of the budget items,” Hamos told lawmakers.

We’re with her. Roughly one in five Illinoisans — that’s 2.6 million people — is covered by Medicaid. In 2014, perhaps another 700,000 will be eligible under the new federal health care reform law.

Illinois has dithered long enough. Lawmakers, move on Medicaid now.

And we here at Will County Watcher couldn’t agree more.

Lame Duck; Durbin Says Earnings Are Charity!!

November 21, 2010

Dear Representative Kinsington :
Dear Senator Durbin:
Dear SenatorMark Kirk:

Dear Member of Congress,

The Lame Duck session is upon us, and though there are lawmakers who might still try to push their big government agenda in a last-hurrah before they leave town, I urge you to respect the will of the people as expressed in the recent election.

The Bush-era tax cuts are about to expire and taxes could shoot up for millions of Americans already struggling in the current economic downturn. The election was clear: Washington has a spending problem, not a funding problem and tax hikes would hurt the economy even further.

As your constituent, I urge you to vote against any tax hikes.

I also know that dealing with the Bush tax cuts, aren’t the only potential issue during this lame duck session. I urge you to oppose any efforts to pass a cap and trade energy tax, any stimulus payments, additional bailouts, other tax hikes, and allowing the death tax to come back at 55%.

These would go directly against the will of the people – having had their say in the November Elections – and I urge you to oppose them as the worst kind of political, dirty-trick. The people have spoken and the people said “We want less – less taxes, less spending, less government.”

I will be watching your vote very closely on cap and trade, additional taxpayer-funded bailouts, any attempts to increase taxes, and any other policy proposals that erode more of our freedoms and expand the reach of government.

And specifically to you Mr. Durbin, Where do you get off telling everyone, that what the government doesn’t take in taxes out of your hard-earned money, is a charitable “donation” to them??!!!
