An Insider's Look at Mormon Culture

Ranta, a young relative, has posted a fervent defense of Rick Perry on Facebook—which surprised me. I expected Ranta to be in Mitt Romney’s camp just out of ethnic loyalty.

Ranta’s support for Perry is based partly on his strong belief in God— apparently Mitt doesn’t love Jesus enough.  Ranta is also convinced that removing all business regulations and repealing “Obamacare” will restore our economy.

 Since Ranta has less than zero interest in my opinions, I did not post a comment asking how the health care plan, which will not go into effect until 2014, is impacting today’s economy. But I am tempted to ask about her trip to Mexico for dental work which she could not afford in our country.

As far as I know, American dental care and pricing is under no federal restrictions and is not mentioned in the new health care bill. Surely the U.S. free market must be giving us the best and least expensive dental care in the world.
