Bob Kerrey's Penchant for Big Government
Bob Kerrey has changed his mind and is returning to Nebraska after all.
Unfortunately, Kerreys liberal ideas are coming with him.

Bob Kerrey is wrong on health care.
Worse, Kerrey wants a single-payer system, which is truly government-run health care with government being the only provider of health care services. If you like making trips to the DMV, working with the IRS or dealing with government bureaucrats then you will love Bob Kerreys health care plans.
Bob Kerrey is wrong on spending.
Kerrey was the swing vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment in 1994. After much waffling – sound familiar? – Kerrey voted against the BBA. Had Kerrey acted responsibly and voted for a Balanced Budget Amendment in ’94, our nation would not be facing a $15 Trillion deficit today.
Kerrey lobbied for the Cap-and-Trade regime, that President Obama admitted would cause energy rates to necessarily skyrocket. Higher energy prices when the price at the pump is approaching $4 a gallon in Nebraska would crush our economy.
