It probably won't come as a big surprise that I do not hold the Attorney General in very high regard. Racebaiters and liberals would probably accuse my opposition to Holder, like my opposition to President Obama, due to the fact that he has a darker pigmentation that I do. Sadly, that tired rhetoric from the left is getting old. Nope, the fact of the matter is that everything Holder stands for, and for that matter Obama, is in complete anathema to my personal beliefs.
So far, there is at least one House Democrat who has already come out and said that he plans to vote in favor of holding Holder in contempt. That would be Utah Representative Jim Matheson. In addition, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, who happens to be my Representative in Congress, said he expects that there will be other Democrats to vote in favor of the contempt citation. As an aside, I hold Hoyer (who happens to be white) in the same disdain as Holder and Obama, so my beef is clearly ideological and not racial, but I digress. I am glad to see that there will be some bipartisan support of the contempt citation as it will give it a bit more teeth.

Personally, I can not understand why anybody who can get health insurance wouldn't want to have it. When I first started working and became eligible for my own health insurance through work, I jumped at the opportunity, even though I was still a minor and on my parents policy. Even though I was young and healthy, I also played a lot of sports and had my fair share of injuries. I wanted to have insurance to cover the costs of any x-rays and what not. Still, the Libertarian, less government side of me bristles at the thought of the government dictating to me that I have to buy something and the type of product I must buy. I'd prefer to keep my liberty rather than turn it over to the government.
