Candidate Warning: Repeal

Whether it's Cap and Trade, Stimulus or Health Care Reform, you better campaign on repeal and then aggressively follow through. No deals, no excuses and no pansy explanations will be accepted.

Prop C passes overwhelmingly

From almost the moment the Democratic-controlled Congress passed the health care law — which aims to increase the number of Americans with health insurance — Republicans have vowed to try to repeal it. Their primary argument is that they believe the federal government should not be involved in mandating health care decisions at the local level.

While repeal might seem an unlikely strategy, the effort to send a message state by state that voters don't approve of being told they have to buy insurance could gain momentum.

Repeal starts with the big ticket items, but it is only a beginning. For years Congress has inserted items that grow the government's powers and spending and that practice has skyrocketed in the last few years. If you want to be in Congress you better be prepared to repeal big and little. The devil is in the details and the devil called voter will be after you if you ignore the details and the them.
