Opinion: Has GOP quit Obamacare fight?

0

This is astute quizzing by a capital journalist: David M. Drucker, senior congressional correspondent for the Washington Examiner, wonders if the Republican Party has “given up on getting rid of Obamacare.” Great point. We hear very little about it anymore, but hopefully it will rise and become a key component of campaigning closer to election time. We know Donald Trump (R-Billions), who leads the polls for his party’s presidential nomination, wants government to own and manage health care. Meanwhile, guys like Bobby Jindal (Louisiana governor) and Scott Walker (Wisconsin governor and candidate dropout) were leading the charge. As for the others? Crickets.

Surprise, surprise! Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is said to have won the first debate among Democratic contenders for the nomination. Couldn’t have been that difficult with her fiercest challenger, Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), “pardoning” her over the whole e-mail server mess. And whoever is coaching Sanders needs to be fired. That was a really poor move.

Oh, yeah, Real Clear Politics polling averages show that 63.7 percent of the nation believes President Barack Obama is leading the nation down the wrong path. That’s a statement result.

As some of us were sleeping, the Zionsville Education Foundation quietly turned 20. It has been a steady climb, we’re told, to the point where the foundation routinely helps Zionsville Community Schools teachers and provides classroom support. There is coverage elsewhere in the paper today, but we want to salute the foundation’s efforts here. Congratulations to all members past and present. To the future!

We applaud the Westfield City Council’s unanimous passage of an amendment to the Westfield-Washington Townships Comprehensive Plan at its meeting last week. At its core is the Grand Junction Gateway sub-district and the suitable use of parcels and architectural designs therein. The amendment focuses specifically on the quadrants of the U.S. 31 and Ind. 32 junction. “This area is the primary gateway into Westfield and therefore plays a critical role in the community’s economic development strategy,” said Matt Skelton, director of economic and community development. We agree.

Noblesville Schools has released results of its recent community survey. More than 2,300 participated. Overall, participants overwhelmingly showed support for the district. Ninety-four percent believe the district is meeting or exceeding expectations. The district was rated strongest in caring for kids, safety, innovation, providing engaging learning opportunities, keeping up with technology and safe transportation. Those are high, well-deserved marks.

Atsa lotta pasta! The Pasta Bowl results are in for the recently concluded event, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools donated more than 13,500 pounds of carbs to local food banks. That is one heck of a contribution! Fishers High School was the secondary school-division winner of the elaborate Pasta Bowl trophy for the second year in a row. Riverside Elementary won its division, New Britton Intermediate its. John DeLucia, “papa of pasta” and HSE School Board president, take a bow for leading the charge.

You’ll find coverage elsewhere in today’s paper about this, but the whole Monon Trail issue that includes pedestrian and other users of the greenway continuing to cross traffic-laden streets really has us shaking our heads. The city installed a “state law” sign for motorists on Main Street at the trail, and that’s great, but users running or walking into traffic streams remains a huge concern. We know pedestrians have the right of way. They do not, however, have the right to simply keep on truckin’ across junctions with seemingly little regard for motorists.
