Keith Larson Interviews Sen. Kay Hagan (D. NC)

Download .mp3 from Soderstrome.com Audio.

Ten things we can take away from this interview:

  1. Charlotte, the largest city in NC, and the Charlotte area are unimportant to Senator Kay Hagan.
  2. Sen. Hagan has no intent to hear from those who may dissent with her.
  3. Sen. Hagan doesn’t actually know how U.S. Health Care compares with Health Care in foreign nations.
  4. Sen. Hagan wouldn’t be willing to participate in the plan she intends to force upon her constituents.
  5. Sen. Hagan wouldn’t be willing to vote for a provision to exclude illegal immigrants from coverage under the plan.
  6. The Constitution is unimportant to Sen. Hagan.  It’s OK for the government to violate the constitution because they are already violating it with other programs.
  7. Solar Energy companies are more important to Sen. Hagan than the people she represents.
  8. Sen. Hagan will vote for the Health Care bill even if her constituents are against it.
  9. Sen. Hagan is willing to increase taxes to pay for the Health Care Plan.
  10. Sen. Hagan will vote to tax employer-paid Health Care benefits.

  • I’ve just listened to this, and I have to take issue with some (okay, most) of your ‘Ten Things’:

    1. Charlotte residents are as able to contact Senator Hagan via phone, post, or email as any other NC resident. From the fact that the senator has a busy schedule and is unable to name a specific time and date for office hours in Charlotte, it does not follow that she does not care about Charlotte!

    2. Senator Hagan’s very presence in this interview is evidence that she is willing to hear from those who disagree with her.

    3. There is simply no evidence for this, one way or the other, to be gleaned from this interview.

    4. She actually said the opposite of this in the interview. She said that she wouldn’t be eligible for any change of coverage under the plan (as it stands), but that if she were one of the people for whom things might change (e.g., the uninsured) that she would absolutely be willing to sign up herself and her family.

    6. The Constitution is obviously important to Senator Hagan, given that her job description includes upholding it. Nothing in this bill is unconstitutional, nor are existing government programs in violation of the constitution. The part of the constitution which allows for these and other such government programs is the part that empowers the legislature to make laws. The Constitution is not a lawbook — just because a particular program is not set out in it does not make that program unconstitutional!

    7. This is simply ridiculous. The senator has a schedule, she had another appointment. Health insurance reform, while important, is not the only issue she has to deal with, and solar power is very important for the future of North Carolina.

    8. This power is granted to her by the Constitution.
