Americans in general, and Missourians in particular are the kindest, most generous folk in history. We want reform, we just don't want Uncle Sam jamming his thumb in our eye. We don't want the IRS to snoop around our bank accounts. We don't want another raft of new taxes. Missourians already spend as much as a third of our state budget providing for the health care of the poor and elderly. I reject the slander that we do not care, and I will not be swayed by whatever sad story our opposition will use as a cudgel to make us submit.Martin has labeled his campaign, "A Call to Repeal Carnahan."
