    What I’d like to know is who is paying for you; I sure hope it isn’t tax payer funded, but I’m afraid it is. You outrageous opinions in the Chapel Hill News about “Lawson being Incorrect” in his letter to the CHN is utterly misleading. As usual all you progressives want more government involvement in our every day lives. WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO PAY FOR THIS MONSTROUS HEALTHCARE BILL?

    Government has shown over and over again that it cannot run anything without loosing money; just look at the postal service, the outlandish abuses in Medicare and Medicaid, the government union workers wanting more and more on the backs of working Americans. Dr. Lawson certainly has the right ideas and if some of you would just listen to some of his ideas you might even see the light, not that I think there is any hope of that. Your article is dead wrong and hopefully this November we will have a change in Congress and Senate.
