Flip Flop “Roads Commissioner”

Flip Flop “Roads Commissioner”

(Brunswick, Maryland) Frederick County Commissioner Charles Jenkins, who proclaimed himself the “Roads Commissioner” in the 2002 election, recently said the following about improvements to I-270 “workers who now make the drive won’t see the benefits of the state plans in their working careers.”

Jenkins made similar comments this summer, after voting to divert $500 million from road construction to the purple line in Montgomery County, stating, “If somebody is 45 years old now and commuting down 270, it's probably safe to say they'll be retired by the time it's done."

Michael Hough, candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates (District 3B), said “It is total unacceptable to the thousands of commuters from Frederick County that I-270 will not be widened for at least another 20 years.” Hough continued “We need leaders who will vote to fix our roads now and not send our tax dollars to another mass transit project. It is wrong that Jenkins would run on the issue of roads and then after being elected throw his hands up in the air and give up on this important issue.”

Flip Flop Charlie’s reversal goes along with his recent flip flops on the Incinerator, the Purple Line, property taxes, and funding for a embryonic stem cell research company.

National Health Plan

1) Give all doctors and nurses full immunity from law suits.
2) Suspend all income taxes for doctors and nurses.
3) Get rid of all health insurance.
4) Doctors and nurses will be rated for quality on various websites.
5) All health care will be cash and carry.
6) Those who can not pay and have no assets will turn to a national fund that will only disperse money direct to doctors or hospitals.
7) Doctors will not need to fill out forms or deal with insurance companies in any way.

This system will encourage more students to become doctors. With more doctors there will be more supply of services and therefore competition and lower prices. Also, if people are paying out of pocket there will be less unnecessary care.

This plan should be able to be implemented in a short time frame and costs for care would drop fast!

The cost to the tax payer would be low and limited to the national fund that is used only for those who can not pay. Those who use the national fund may be required to pay the fund back if able at a later date.

Think about the results if this plan was put in place: 1) More Doctors and therefore more supply of health care; 2) With more supply costs come down; 3) Fewer costs of operation for the doctors and therefore lower costs overall.

Yes, the Lawyers and insurance companies are out of luck and can no longer feed on health care but this means 100% of our health care dollars can actually go to care and not unneeded overhead.

Maryland Job Creation Plan

Hough Releases Maryland Job Creation Plan

(Brunswick, Maryland) Michael Hough, candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates (District 3B), released a Job Creation and Economic Recovery Plan today. Michael believes high taxes and overregulation are destroying jobs in Maryland and sending employers to other states. “We need to cut taxes, cut government red tape for small business owners, and work to create private-sector jobs,” said Hough.

Cut Taxes
  • Roll back the O’Malley tax increases

  • Create Private-Sector Jobs
  • Competitively bid out non-essential government services to the private-sector

  • Cut Red Tape for Business Owners
  • Establish a Business Ombudsman to assist businesses with regulations and to report on how government agencies work with businesses
  • Review all existing occupational licensing requirements and eliminate unnecessary ones
  • Exempt small businesses from unnecessary regulations

  • Tax Credits
  • $500 tax credit on unemployment taxes for hiring a worker who has been on unemployment for more than 60 days
  • $1,200 income tax credit for employers who keep previously unemployed workers for more than 12 months

  • “Instead of increasing taxes and government spending or having the government pick winners and losers by giving funds to one or two companies—we need to create an environment where entrepreneurs can start a business and companies will be encouraged to come to Maryland and stay,” stated Hough.

    Flip Flop Charlie

    (Frederick, Maryland) Frederick County Commissioner Charles Jenkins has accomplished a major political feat, not achievable by most mild mannered politicians, by totally changing his position on two major issues in the same week.

    First Charles voted correctly against raising property taxes, after previously voting wrongly the last two years to raise property taxes on struggling homeowners in Frederick County. Then Charles stated to the Gazette on May 20, 2009 (Trip to Pa. Convinces Jenkins that Frederick Should Build Incinerator) he would now vote to build a trash incinerator in Frederick County, three weeks after he voted against the incinerator. This means he was for the incinerator, before he was against it, before he was for it.

    Michael Hough, candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates stated, “We need leaders who will make decisions based on conviction rather than sticking their finger in the air and voting whichever way the political wind is blowing. The citizens of Frederick County deserve consistent leadership instead of constant flip flopping. Congratulations for flipping the right way on taxes after being wrong, but can you flip back on incinerator because now you are wrong.

    T.E.A. Party

    Let me ask you a question. How old are you? Are you old enough to remember Nikita Kruschev banging his shoe on the table at the U.N.? If so, do you also remember he said that communism would take over America? Not by brutal force, but by quiet and smooth infiltration into the most important sectors of our society. That would be our schools and our government. Well, I am old enough to remember those days when we feared communism. The days of rehearsing bomb drills and wondering if we were going to have a "next day". Now I know that Mr. Kruschev was right, at least up until this point in time.
    We must recognize that we are about to become a different nation than we were originally intended to be. Socialism is just another way of saying communism and no matter how you say it or what you call it, that is where we are headed.
    On April 15, 2009 we, as a mostly silent majority, must come together in our communities across this great Country of ours and stand up for HER. Lets take Her back. She belongs to us and we can no longer afford to allow liberal, communist, low-life, freedom hating, baby-killing, dope smoking, Military-hating "progressives" to run our lives. All I want is my AMERICA back. The way She was in all her glory. Who cares what other countries think? When we were there to save those countries, they loved us. If they don't want to remember that then so be it. Let's get out there on April 15 and show not only our politicians we don't need them or want them but let's show the rest of the world that we are BACK!!!
