During this “Campaign of Pain” we have seen many egotistical, childish, petulant, arrogant, ugly, punishing, name calling actions by the Administration in the past weeks as the Republicans attempted to negotiate a better future for American citizens and their children. The Constitution provides for the Congress to approve the spending of the United States and they seem to be doing everything possible to act like mature adults and to protect our country’s economy and the people from programs that are not in their best interests.
Adults In The Room Propose Effective Solutions! Negotiations Overdue!
In this post today I will share with you “constructive” non-political solutions which could truly benefit our country and citizens.
The first proposal is by Paul Ryan, the Republican Congressman who has the reputation of understanding the Federal Government Budget and Debt Ceiling issues better than any politician in Washington.
The second proposal is from a very successful businessman in Orlando, FL, Mr. Harris Rosen. For 25 years now Mr. Rosen has implemented his own health care system for his 4,000 employees at his luxury Shingle Creek Resort Hotel. With a goal of maximizing health care at minimum cost and maximum welfare for his employees, he has implemented an exemplary health care system that has saved his company $200+ million over 25 years. Because of his success and his confidence that his solutions would be much better for America he has invited Mr. Obama and interested business owners to visit and learn about his health care system. Our country would be well served if we had sincere open dialogue with qualified professionals about maximizing effectiveness of a healthcare system.
The third article describes how many Americans are going to Washington and other cities to show how much they are dissatisfied with government activities. This move is called rideforconstitution.org.

Both Reagan and Clinton negotiated debt-ceiling deals with their opponents. We’re ready to negotiate.
- By PAUL RYAN Tuesday, October 8, 2013
The president is giving Congress the silent treatment. He’s refusing to talk, even though the federal government is about to hit the debt ceiling. That’s a shame—because this doesn’t have to be another crisis. It could be a breakthrough. We have an opportunity here to pay down the national debt and jump-start the economy, if we start talking, and talking specifics, now. To break the deadlock, both sides should agree to common-sense reforms of the country’s entitlement programs and tax code.
First, let’s clear something up. The president says he “will not negotiate” on the debt ceiling. He claims that such negotiations would be unprecedented. But many presidents have negotiated on the debt ceiling—including him. In 1985, Ronald Reagan signed a debt-ceiling deal with congressional Democrats that set deficit caps. In 1997, Bill Clinton hammered out an agreement with congressional Republicans to raise the debt ceiling, reform Medicare and cut capital-gains taxes. Two years ago, Mr. Obama signed the Budget Control Act, which swapped spending cuts for a debt-ceiling hike.
The 2013 Healthcare Design Exchange will take place November 14 – 16, 2013 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando.
As part of participating in the program, buyers will receive two (2) free nights stay at the hotel. Arrangements will be made by the Healthcare Design Exchange staff.
Rosen Shingle Creek is nestled on a 230-acre site along Shingle Creek just off Universal Boulevard, east of the Orange County Convention Center North/South expansion and just 10 minutes away from the Orlando International Airport. Our ideal location is just a short distance to a variety of Orlando’s best attractions, restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues.
Our 1,500 guest rooms offer luxurious first-class settings that capture the hotel environment. Capitalizing on Rosen Shingle Creek’s elevation, every single room offers a stunning view of the golf course and the area’s incomparable setting —from the perfectly manicured fairways and greens to the picturesque creek, magnificent cypress trees, and lush natural vegetation. For vacationers or meeting guests, it’s hard to imagine a better way to start the day than with the view from these rooms.

Tractor-trailer drivers will intentionally clog the inner loop of the Washington, D.C., beltway beginning on the morning of Oct. 11, according to a coordinator of the upcoming “Truckers Ride for the Constitution” rally.
Organizers of the three-day ride want to call attention to a litany of trucker frustrations and express their disapproval of national political leaders.
Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway “three lanes deep” as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.
The truckers circling I-495 will keep the left lane open for emergency vehicles, Conlon said, but “everybody that doesn’t have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck: Nobody in, nobody out.” The trucks will be going the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit.
D.C. commuters who wish to be allowed past the convoy must have “T2SDA” – an acronym for the event’s original name, “Truckers to Shut Down America” – written on their vehicle, he said.
