You Go, Gov. Vilsack

We need more National Democrats to talk about the immorality of cutting medicaid to pay for Katrina like Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack:
It is "morally wrong" to expect low-income Iowans to "sacrifice solely and completely for the poor people of New Orleans" to pay for hurricane relief, Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack said Tuesday as Democrats took aim at Republican budget policy at a forum.

When Republicans in Congress discuss paying for costs of Hurricane Katrina through cuts in spending on Medicaid, the health insurance program for the poor, "that's essentially what we're asking," said Vilsack, a Democrat and the chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council.

Instead, Vilsack — who's thought to be laying groundwork for a presidential bid — said tax cuts signed into law by President Bush and targeted at upper-income taxpayers ought to be revoked.

"When we don't talk about tax cuts, when we don't talk about benefits that are accrued to those who are more fortunate in the same discussion, it seems to me we have our values misplaced," Vilsack said at the forum organized by the council, a 20-year-old centrist organization that gained influence with the rise of President Clinton, a former chairman.
This is essentially what I've been saying for a while. It's the right thing to do. It's the practical thing to do. And it's good politics.

And, yes, we should cut pork, too!

Hi matey

I'm sure it was this blog I was reading a while back where someone was looking for an SEO tool for driving more traffic and get more hits for their website.

Anyway, I was speaking to a techi guy at work who gets to know all the latest stuff and he uses the free Link Referral Program.

His website on network information multi level marketing amongst other stuff has seen traffic explode since he started using the Link Referral Program - consequently his affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS his website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)
