NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY INTERVIEWS JACK BILLION ON ITS BLOG
SIOUX FALLS--The National Democratic Party interviewed Jack Billion for its blog today. Dr. Billion is the Democratic candidate for governor in South Dakota.
The DNC's Tracy Joan Russo interviewed Jack and wrote a blog entry entitled "50-State Strategy: South Dakota--Meet Jack Billion." It is located at http://dnc.org/a/2006/06/tell_me_a_littl.php.
For more information, contact Todd Epp at the information below.
So, I went and took a little gander to see what the other side has to say about the election:

What would you like to see change in South Dakota?

Five of the ten poorest counties in America are within our borders. 15 percent of the South Dakota population is Native American and it is the fastest growing segment of our population and they deserve to participate more fully in our economy. Republicans sold the people of South Dakota to out-of-state businesses as low-wage workers and we need to turn that around and grow the South Dakota economy by promoting small businesses within our state. This goes hand-in-hand with our higher education system. We need to have a state where any graduate can leave if they want to, but they don’t leave because they have to. That is the kind of state we envision – one where healthcare, education, any our economy are the priorities of an open and accountable government.
OK... So the party of the Corporate income tax is trying to portray itself as the party of small business. That's a nice change of pace. And if I recall, Homestake and the additional doctoral level programs were started by a Republican Governor. And, more health insurers were brought into the state after a period of long decline....

(Does someone want to pay me for all this shilling?) Anyway, it's easy to see there's going to be a lot of disagreement this election. Time to get the popcorn out and prepare to watch the November fights.

Last time I checked, PP, the Division of Insurance said there were 15 Individual Major Medical Companies in 2001. In 2005, eight.

Page 11 on the Powerpoint.

Shill, indeed.

Pretty selective statistics, anon. It had dropped lower than that, and we were in danger of losing all health insurers due to insurers being forced to insure everyone.

PP is referring to the fact that we've started to get a few back.

Rounds came in and stopped the bleeding caued by the libs in the legislature designed to force them out of business, placing us all in a state sponsored program.

Blah Blah Blah. Billion tell us how you are going to do this. You Liberals always speak but never have a solution. Tell me a small business owner how you are going to get more of us up and running.

how about, feasant, Billion's idea to combine health insurance providers with other midwestern states to allow more affordable healthcare for small businesses. Can't tell me that you aren't paying more for healthcare for your employees.

Anyway, feasant, all you small business owners really care about is the bottom line. That's why your businesses stay small... you have no vision.

If you understood, perhaps, that the wisest investment any business can make is in the development of human capital, then you may realize that education is what drives our economy.

Small businesses stay small because they don't dream. They don't embrace innovation, and they are too worried about staying afloat to really take the initiative to grow.

If you can't make it, then no elected governor can help you.
