In our quest for why we can't have a hospital that offers all services on Maui, let's talk about the queen of union puppets, Sen. Roz Baker. She is an expert only in the art of arrogance. If you look on her Website for who endorses her, you will see a list of 24 unions. The only Maui union is Maui Contractors Association. What does this mean? It means her loyalty and campaign contributions are state-based, O'ahu-centric, and not Maui-based.
Workers at Maui Memorial Medical Center want a good hospital to work in, where it isn't such a struggle to provide care. They want needed supplies and equipment.
Here's the Roz Baker trick: she claims to be for Maui. She will say she wants good healthcare. She dances all around the healthcare issues, but behind the scenes stays true to her O'ahu union ties and blocks Maui from hospitals such as Banner.
Baker doesn't want to publicly say "no," so she will approve the privatization for public hospitals. Then she will tie a brick around the bill's neck and throw it in the ocean.
Watch her closely. Actions speak louder than words.
Lastly, are you honest? Do you have common sense? Do you care about the people of Maui? Please, will you run for State Senate in 2016 against Sen. Roz Baker? The job is not difficult. Previous experience is not necessary.
