Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 12, 2010 9A Congressman makes swing through Plumas County A: I have met with him many times. Although I disagree with most of his policies, I believe he is sincere. Q: What do you disagree with most? A: I disagree most about the government's responsi- bility to protect. The most fundamental responsibility of government is to protect our borders, and we haven't done this for about 20 years. We are literally a nation made up by the peoples of the world through legal immigration. They assimilated to America, our language, our ways and constitution. From many people we became one people. There is only one race in America, the American race. Q: What's your plan about unemployment in California? A: In response I would quote Winston Churchill, "The further back in history you go, the further you can see into the future." He also talked about dif- ferent presidential actions in times of financial crisis. Those included Hoover, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. "Look at history to see what works and what doesn't. President Obama is a free spender -- he is robbing Peter to pay Paul," McClin- tock said. Q: What do you think of same sex marriage? A: He said when he thinks of marriage he thinks of mothers and fathers, but as a congressman, he doesn't judge homosexuality, "It's not government's role," he said. He also said, "Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it one." Q: How do you fix health- care? A: Let people shop around, even in other states. We give huge tax breaks to businesses to buy healthcare. If we extended the same credit to individuals, they could manage their own plan as a consumer. We need to get all those de- cisions back to the consumer where they gain the right to say, "No thank you." We need to get back into competition. Q" California is in major debt. Are there plans in the Legislature to fix this problem? A: Look back in history of California and you well find the answer. Four decades ago we paid half the taxes; had better roads; the best educa- tion in the nation; and you could attend a university for free. Today we pay double the taxes and receive many less services. Q: What do you think of Guantanamo Bay? A: It shouldn't be closed and those prisoners shouldn't be brought to the United States. These terrorists should be treated as enemy combatants --Guantanamo Bay does that. Water and timber Among the adults meeting with McClintock were Mike Willhoit, Wendi Durkin and Aaron Seandel representing both the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 2105 Re-licensing Project and the thermal curtain issue moni- tored by the grassroots efforts of the Save Lake Almanor Committee. See Swing, page 10A Congressman Tom McClintock ended his trip to Lassen and Plumas counties with a town hall meeting in Quincy Friday evening, April 30. About four dozen people listened as McClin- tock talked about fiscal policy, healthcare, immigration reform and environmental policy. Among his more memorable lines: "The religion of manmade global warming has been thoroughly discredited ... it's a laughing stock." Photo by Delaine Fragnoli M. Kate West Chester Editor chesternews@plu Congressman Tom McClin- tock made a swing through Lassen and Plumas counties Friday, April 30, and stopped in Lake Almanor for two local meetings, one with Chester High School students and the other with business and community leaders. He spoke first with the students and said, "All of the debates today in Congress af- fect you." He next began a tu- torial that spoke to the histo- ry of America and asked, "What is government?" He talked about the Founding Fathgrs and the American Constitution. He talked about the people's inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. "The purpose of govern- ment is to secure these natural rights for you," said Congressman McClintock. He also said the American founders applied "mother's rule" to government by insuring one institution would apply checks and balances to the actions of the others. Student Q&A As part of his interaction with students, McClintock also invited students to ask questions: ......... Q" Have you ever met the president? Is he cool?
