While the President has put himself on the ropes with Syria, I read an article in the Washington Post today about Jim Demint and a band of students from Vanderbilt University rallying to defund Obamacare.
Alright, who are these people and what is their motive? What are the consequences of “defunding” and what do these people intend to do about the remaining problem of 50 million Americans being without health care?
You see, it is easy to attempt to tear something down, but it is much more difficult to actually solve a problem. So, let’s put Vanderbilt’s reputation on the line. What do Vandy students propose to solve the nation’s problem?
His resume has been visited here before, but since he is back in the news here is Jim DeMint.

Now, it is important to know that his first job was working for his father-in-law at an advertising agency where he performed market research. He was at the agency for 10 years before hooking up with a politician doing “message testing.” From that point, he wanted to be a politician.
Nowhere in this resume is experience as a CEO. He is a professional politician, without a law degree.
Nowhere in his experience has he invented or created solutions to any problem. His record is one of opposing every piece of legislation that intends to help people in need. He would not know about being in need because he was rescued by his wealthy father-in-law and We the People who paid his salary.
Suspected is that the college students at Vanderbilt are of the same ilk. Credibility denied.

The Heritage Foundation and its political activist arm Heritage Action are turning to the town hall format to try to stop the health care law. Foundation president and former GOP senator Jim DeMint was in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Monday night as part of a nine-city defund Obamacare tour.”
