Buried diamonds

Yes, I'm sure you've heard about McCain's tax promises and intended health-care solutions already. However, a short portion of each caught my eye.

From the former:

On page one of the New York Times, the paper described the fate of the middle-class tax cut this way: "Families earning as little as $20,000 a year -- members of the 'forgotten middle class' whose taxes he promised during his campaign to cut -- will also be asked to send more dollars to Washington under [Bill Clinton's] plan."
Shocking! Shocking, especially considering how the MSM in general are treating Mr. O these days...

From the latter, discussing the advantage of "labor mobility" in McCain's health-care plan:

By freeing workers of the need to stay in a job to keep their health insurance, Mr. McCain's plan would help create a more flexible workforce. A study by University of Wisconsin economist Scott Adams found that 20% to 30% of nonelderly men worry enough about losing their health benefits that they stay in jobs they would otherwise leave.
Curious how that's ignored quite often in MSM coverage.

Update: Heh. Perhaps I spoke too soon? HT Crusader-Rabbit.

It is curious how it is ignored in the MSM.

Many men and women are stressed today to find their savings in 401 and Ira's are falling. On top of that, such job insecurity. We might add however that the world though insecure, we are never insecure in the Lord.

I wanted to check your site and I really like it. I love the scripture references.

Thanks
