Tomorrow, South Dakotans will go to the polls. Among the races and issues to be decided is one called Initiated Measure 17 which deals with the issue of in-network and out-of-network health care providers. It is being billed by supporters as a "patient choice" measure, and I suppose that is true. But like so many pieces of legislation that get government involved in the free market, it actually diminishes choice and freedom.
The choice is clear, when you consider your values and stop listening to the empty rhetoric from fake conservatives.
South Dakota District 33 Senator Phil Jensen's mailer is out. One of our best Republicans in the South Dakota Legislature, Jensen points not only to conservative rhetoric, but a conservative record of leadership.

Don't give him the chance.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
