Secretary Sebelius, Meet The Anti-Deficiency Act.
It is “unacceptable that HHS fails to maintain accurate financial records and fails to adhere to federal law designed to protect taxpayer dollars from mismanagement and waste,” Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., wrote in a Monday letter to the department’s secretary, Kathleen Sebelius. (HT:Federal Times) The USG may not appear to have a very tight wrap on how and where it’s | Read More »
A New Challenge To Healthcare Reform (You Try Treating Sickness Without Any Professional Doctors).
“Physicians support reform; in fact, we were the ones leading the fight against the status quo. But this new research shows that doctors strongly believe the law is not working like it needs to – for them, or for their patients,” said Lou Goodman, PhD, President. “For any health care reform effort to be successful, it must include the viewpoint of our nation’s doctors. Their | Read More »
I’ve Got Good News, And I’ve Got Bad News.
First, we do the good news. Once Barack Obama finishes with today’s Sign and Brag, he won’t want to talk about healthcare. It seems that Virginia, Florida and seven other states are preparing to sue the US Government over this law. President Obama’s Inner Law School Grad advices him to have no comment. Now we do the bad news. His next big discussion topic is | Read More »
Once More Into The Breach!
KING HENRY V: Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead. – William Shakespeare We again are assaulted by Barack Obama’s healthcare hostile takeover act. We again are forced to defend the ramparts of a civil society of laws and not men. For Conservative America, (and maybe GOP America as well) it is “Once more | Read More »
The Return of The Resurgent State?
“If the federal government has the exclusive right to judge the extent of its own powers, warned the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions’ authors (James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, respectively), it will continue to grow – regardless of elections, the separation of powers, and other much-touted limits on government power.” –Thomas E. Woods The decade from 2000 and 2009 may well go down in American History | Read More »
Sibelius Recovers The Downed Trial Balloon. Reality Won’t Let The Cost Curve Bend.
We just got a fascinating glimpse of what proponents of nationalized healthcare will do to improve the outcomes of Federal Medical Programs. They won’t know that you are sick, they therefore won’t attempt to cure you. As a result, they will fail far less often and prove that socialized medicine has a much higher likelihood of producing positive healthcare outcomes. Also, what they don’t know | Read More »
A Smokescreen; Not a Solution
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid all three entered 2009 with a commanding mandate and as much political power as any Democratic Leadership has had since Lyndon Johnson in 1965. Their mandate ordered them to fix the economy and put America back to work. They didn’t want to do that. They wanted to socialize the economy instead. An examination of what is wrong with | Read More »
An Open Letter To The Honorable Congressman Parker Griffith
I understand well that you perform a difficult and vital duty for the preservation of American Democracy. I understand the value of your time and thusly do not write you today to expend it unduly on matters not worthy of immediate attention.
I humbly request that you please use your vote, your voice and all of your profound and venerable influence to postpone the vote on H.R. 3200 until at least the next Fiscal Year. This bill, if enacted, will substantially raise the barrier to success that every small entrepreneur must face when she or he takes the plunge and hangs out a shingle.

Welcome To The World of Logical Outcomes
It seems that the British National Health System is facing a cost crisis due to rapidly increasing rates of childhood obesity. They may not be facing it yet, but they have smart people working for them, maybe even a Evil ORSA or two, who have drawn them a picture of what’s approaching down the pike. The British government has seen this picture and judged it | Read More »
