    A Lesson in Leading

    By on February 10, 2016 in See It Here

    I hear and read the words “no leadership” from a certain political party just about every two minutes. I think I must not have paid attention in English class or political science class because here’s what is being done after those words are used:

    *Just after the fiscal 2017 budget was released, that political party announced the House and Senate budget committees wouldn’t hold hearings. That is leadership.

    *Many of the candidates in that party have promised to blow up the Affordable Care Act because they don’t like it. Nobody has put forth what a replacement will look like, despite a lot of bloviating about all the different approaches being proposed, and the more than 40 votes to repeal it in Congress. But not one solid idea about a health care alternative is on the table. That’s leadership.
