Rob Portman right, Democrats wrong on health care reform
A few days ago I posted on how the Democrats were attacking US Senate Candidate Rob Portman for supposedly supporting the “status-quo” on health care (instead of the health care monstrosity currently being debate in Washington). The ODP rolled out some nonsensical attack quotes that missed the whole point. Portman has been saying since the beginning that a bill that raises costs and hurts business | Read More »
Ohio Democratic Party fails reading comprehension and logic on health care
This story from the Dayton Daily News is revealing in so many ways: On a day that brought President Barack Obama to Ohio to make a final appeal for congressional approval of his health care overhaul plan, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rob Portman had a different message. “I pray that it will not pass,” Portman said on Monday, March 15. His comments came in a | Read More »
Portman’s hard work is paying off
Rob Portman has been working hard. He is well on his way to visiting all eighty-eight counties in Ohio; and with real meetings and events not just drive throughs. And he has been a fundraising monster; out raising Brunner and Fisher by significant amounts each and every cycle. Soon we will find out just how badly he has beaten the Dems this cycle. I am | Read More »
Obama’s soaring rhetoric fails to change minds
I know what you are thinking. Of course Obama’s speech didn’t convince those right-wing crazy’s who disrupt townhalls and yell things during presidential speeches; they’re close-minded yahoos. But it seems the president’s strident insistence that action be taken has failed to convince the very people he needs to win over: Blue Dogs or Democrats in districts worried about getting re-elected. John Boccieri, for example: U.S. | Read More »
Why We Don’t Need Socialized Medicine
I didn’t see it but apparently a YouTube video on “Why We Need Government-Run Universal Socialized Health Insurance” was all the rage last week. As is so typical of these arguments it was full of non sequiturs and strawmen. There are far too many to be able to debunk them all (one that is not discussed it the difference between health insurance and health care), | Read More »
You trust government to do what?
Update: Added YouTube instead. Funny and frightening Hannity clip about how President Obama plans to cut a tiny sliver of government spending. Bonus John Kasich appearance. I think the quip about the government some people want to run health care just discovered paper has two sides should make you laugh and then cry.
Rob Portman on Ohio’s Future
This afternoon I took a trip to downtown Circleville, Ohio to catch a stop on Rob Portman’s just launched RV Tour. Rob spoke to grassroots leaders from the area and stressed the importance of this race; and Ohio in general in 2010. He stressed how important it was to avoid giving President Obama and Democrats in Congress another rubber stamp for their liberal agenda. He | Read More »
Obama-Biden continue to distort and deceive
Obama started the distortion last night: Just one last point I want to make, since Senator McCain talked about providing a $5,000 health credit. Now, what he doesn’t tell you is that he intends to, for the first time in history, tax health benefits. The Biden did what he does best and talk out of his – well, the side of his mouth: John McCain | Read More »
