Liberty County GOP responds to liberal blog...

Below are excerpts from a story as posted on the Liberty County Republican (GOP) Website concerning comments made by liberal/democrat blogger Allen Youngblood.

For the record: "Liberty Dispatch agrees and supports the Liberty County GOP's position concerning Youngblood's story."

The Link to the story on the GOP website is located at the end of this story.

I-DineOut Gets it Wrong
Jul.17, 2012 in Blog, Local

In the article, “Judge McNair Informs County Employees What to Expect – LIBERTY, July 16, 2012″ , I-DINEOUT stated:

“County Judge Craig McNair in his own Power Point presentation to the audience indicated that from 2007 through 2009 County Government spent less than it’s income and lived well within their means. However, in 2010 and even more so in 2011 County Government spent millions more than their income greatly reducing the county’s fund balance that had taken more than a decade or more to build and create."

It was on January 1, 2010 that County Judge Craig McNair and new first term County Commissioner Charlotte Warner took Office and along with Commissioner Norman Brown became the majority in Commissioners Court."

Secondly, Judge McNair sighted a second reason for the County being in such a financial struggle and that was due to the tremendous amount of borrowing money greatly increasing the debt of the county. According to his presentation the County owes $23,345,275.00 million dollars which if paid on time won’t be paid off until 2028 some 12 years from today.” — i-dineout.com

FACT: The article leaves it to the reader’s imagination as to who is to blame, but implies that Republican Commissioner Warner and County Judge McNair are at fault. The article got it wrong. Republicans did not take office until January of 2011! And, the article failed to mention that these debt obligations were in fact, enacted by the Democrats prior to Republicans taking office! I-DINEOUT also failed to note that these obligations, along with increasing health care expenditures are the reasons for the deficit spending by the current office holders.

brainless wonders at LC mgmt. If they'd look at TRS Active Care (teachers retirement system's deal with Blue Cross Blue Shield), and actually buy the insurance, instead of self funded, everybody would be:
* fully insured,
* not in violation of Obamacare, * not subject to resulting penalty tax, and*pay less than half of the current $32,000 per year, for each family's coverage.

Allen will not give up. He is a diehard Democrat and will keep spinning his Tales and trying to dis-credit any Republican in office now or at any time. This is how he always handled his stories when the Democrats ruled and will continue until he can no longer sit up. I have gotten to where I do not believe anything he says.

I agree... I think Youngblood has victimized Paulette, Craig and Kim. Im sure we haven't seen the last of it.

Keep up the great work LD and GOP.
