Dr. Tax and Spend

Philip R. Klein asked a very stupid question in his latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review:

Dr. David Teuscher stood front and center at Lamar University last night to talk about health care and its impact on our lives. Wearing this white doctors coat - Teuscher - sponsored by the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce - gave his speech and then took questions.

We - however - are a little confused. Why Teuscher?

I’ve already addressed Dr. David Teuscher’s qualifications in this article.

  • First student Republican elected to the Urbana City Council in 1979, while still a student at the University of Illinois
  • Served on the Finance Committee for the 2008 Reelection Campaign of Michael Williams as Railroad Commissioner
  • Served on the State Republican Executive Committee
  • Appointed to the Texas Tax Reform Commission by Governor Rick Perry
  • Served as President and Legislative Committee Chair of the Texas Orthopedic PAC
  • Served as the Chairman of the Committee on Professional Liability for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons - readers may remember this group was instrumental in the passage of Proposition 12 on tort reform that capped subjective non-economic damages in medial liability suits
  • Co-Chair of the Beaumont ISD Citizen's Advisory Bond Committee
  • Served as the managing editor of the Orthopedic Medical Legal Advisor
  • Served on the faculty of the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, and Baylor University
  • Served in the Army, where he was awarded the Army Commendation Medal with Oak Leaf, the meritorious Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Southwest Asia Campaign Ribbon with Oak Leaf.
  • Served as President of the Texas Orthopedic Association
  • Served as President of the Jefferson County Medical Society
  • Served as Chairman, AAOS Committee on Professional Liability
  • Served as a Texas Delegate to the American Medical Association
  • Served as a delegate to the Texas Medical Association

Apparently, Philip missed the subject of the town hall meeting: healthcare. As I pointed out in this article, the other sponsors were the Texas Medical Association, the Jefferson County Medical Society, Lamar University, and the Lamar Institute of Technology, but Philip never mentioned that.

Here’s the bottom line: Klein began this particular article on healthcare, but ended on another rant about the Beaumont Independent School District. See this article for more on Philip’s ignorance.

More of Klein’s “same old think, over and over and over again.”

I wonder if he was even there? Or, more of his "Sources"?

Gus, the news showed several hundred people at the forum. Where does Philip get off saying there were only a few people there?
