HEALTH CARE REFORM: WHY THE OBAMA PROPOSAL IS LOSING
The other day, I heard a cogent, persuasive argument in favor of the Public Option that did not rely on the idea that the Public Option would be the first step towards a single payor system. Unfortunately, I did not hear this argument from the President; from Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius; from “Health Reform Czar” De Parle; or from Press Secretary Gibbs. Other | Read More »
What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
I don’t know Linda Franklin, but I received a forwarded email from her which is short and to the point. It’s worth repeating: Obama’s health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn’t understand it, Passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it and whose members will be exempt from it, Signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief | Read More »
The Real Problem with Health Care Reform is the Mandates, Not the Public Option
Periodically, I will be posting writings by Honeymoon with a Black Widow, here is the first: An increasing danger with health care reform is that President Obama will make strategic concessions with respect to the public option and the “millionaires’ tax” — leaving in place the so called non-controversial items like the individual mandate, outlawing pre-existing conditions from being considered by insurance companies, and, perhaps, | Read More »
Any One Else Creeped Out?
“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” Obama went on to say, according to Moline’s real-time stream. While listening to “Deutschland Uber Alles”, the rabbis waited for the Anointed One to speak. Obama was seeking support from any quarter for his amoral, ultra-political realignment of the nation. Hiding behind the guise of health care reform, the Great Prevaricator was true to form | Read More »
WSJ Reports: Split the Bill, Pass on Reconciliation
Just as feared: The Wall Street Journal is reporting that there is a 60 percent chance that Dems will split the big spending items (read “public option”) out and pass that with Dem-only support. Yes, the really are that arrogant.
Mary Jo Kilroy thinks you are stupid
The Dispatch offers this short report on Mary Jo Kilroy’s health care tele-townhall: U.S. Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy last night insisted that congressional Democrats are not considering “socialized medicine'” in their efforts to approve a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s health-care system.

Dems Miss the “Stop Digging When You’re in a Hole” Memo
The blogosphere, Twitter, FaceBook and the MSM are abuzz with the reports today that Democrats are gearing up to “go it alone” on Health _______ Reform. Whether you fill that blank with “Care”, “Insurance” or what have you, one has to be impressed with the levels of testosterone needed for the Left to come to that decision. Of course, testosterone only measures bravery, not intelligence. | Read More »
Flushing Them Out
As the health care reform debate becomes more heated, several of our esteemed representatives and senators are hiding in the tall grass of our Democratic friends hoping not to get metaphorically poached. They are pretending that meeting with their own political allies and operatives will give them cover in the future by arguing they did meet with their constituents and citizens. Of course this is | Read More »
A Warning from the Past from the Gipper
Almost 50 years ago, a B-grade movie star and TV actor made a 10 minute recording warning the American people about the coming of socialism to our great nation and how it would establish its beachhead in the guise of ‘universal’ medical care. That actor would later go on to become quite possibly the greatest President of the 20th Century. His name was Ronald | Read More »
Zach Space’s bait and switch on health care reform
Zach Space talks a good game. He knows how to say what he thinks voters want to hear. The problem is that his votes don’t line up and his rhetoric is slippery. A perfect example is health care reform legislation. Here is Space on why he supports the Democrat proposals: And the Ohio Democrat now supports the health care reform bill passed out of the | Read More »

Truth vs. Hypocrisy and Spin in the Health Care Debate [Redacted.]
In the vortex of partisanship and spin, at the onset of an Astroturf uprising and an AFL-CIO counterattack it is in everyone’s best interest to sort through the hype vs. the facts as it relates to the ongoing debate about health care reform.

Irony, hypocrisy in criticism of pushback on health care
Rep. Steve Dreihaus and Rep. Steve Kagan are two of the latest Congressmen to feel the wrath of their constituents over health care reform, cap and trade, and other issues. Meanwhile, the push is on to trivialize and demonize the backlash that’s going on at local town hall meetings. The DNC released a statement blaming Republicans for riling up “angry mobs of a small number of rabid | Read More »
