Black Chamber of Commerce leader says Kennedy’s health care ideas “just don’t work”

by editor on April 18, 2009

The problem with liberals is that most of them don’t live in the real world. Not even in the same neighborhood. Hair-brained schemes hatched in the hallowed halls of academe don’t work any more than the professors who concoct them.

Then there’s Harry Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, someone with both feet planted squarely in the real world. Here’s what Alford had to say about lib healthcare concepts:

“Yeah, I love Ted Kennedy. I love what he stands for, but he has come out over the years with some ideas that I think just don’t work. I remember his office called me and they wanted to – any business that had over 100 employers would have to have medical insurance for all the employees. And he was aiming this at fast food chains. And I said, all the McDonald’s and Burger King owners are going to do is make sure he doesn’t have 100 employees because he can’t afford it. You can’t make him do this. They’ll be fewer jobs.”

Fewer jobs? Perfect. That would allow the libs to test some of their equally ineffective job creation theories.

Dennis Miller has an interview with Alford on his website. It’s “Dennismilerradio.com” I believe. On his home page.

Thanks for that Amanda! I’ve updated the two articles we have about the Barbara Boxer / Harry Alford issues with this audio.

Alford-Boxer Part II: “She assumed that I’m going to be some little ignorant jigaboo”

Love this guy , he’s got the guts to stand up to people that seem to think they can bully the American taxpayers. I know this isn’t about just left & right , it’s wrong & very harmful to everyone in this country (which is why you won’t catch ted kennedy or any of the other senators or congressmen -or women- that support this “reform” actually using the same system they are trying to force on the taxpayers. ) but the actions in Washington D.C. in the past few months reminds me of a charge some made against GW Bush. They said he thought he was elected “King”. Truth be told from Obama’s own words as well as miss nancycrazypants from California & others, I believe they think O was elected “King” & can force anything on anyone.
