Dems schedule unpopular Obamacare vote for dead of night
The Senate version of the Democrats’ so-called health care reform is so unpopular, Nevada’s Harry Reid finds it necessary to vote on it at 1:00 a.m. David M. Herszenhorn reports the Democrats must conduct six votes to pass their Obamacare — one of the crown jewels of Obamaism: 1 a.m. MONDAY – To end debate on “a manager’s package” that includes all the latest changes | Read More »
Worse than you think, Ace.
When you’re a Democrat, not only can you use “I’m sleeping with her” as a stealth job prerequisite for an US Attorney’s position – HI, Senator Max Baucus (D) of Montana! – but when you’re a Democrat you can also publicly disrespect inconveniently conscientious female journalists (even if they’re African-American ones) when they insist on doing their jobs. Although I will admit that at least | Read More »
Liberal Fascists Facilitate Vaccine Sales by Fabricating Swine Flu Data
It was reported on Wednesday that the swine flu figures since July have been entirely fabricated, since the Center for Disease Control instructed states at that time to stop testing for H1N1. Prior to the ban, they found that more than 80% of the referred cases did not turn out to be swine flu. If you’ve been diagnosed “probable” or “presumed” 2009 H1N1 or “swine | Read More »

Democrats Against Breast-Feeding.
You may remember the ‘tampon tax’ discovered in the Baucus bill – short version: Baucus went out and did a mass tax on medical devices to supposedly pay for his ‘compromise;’ unfortunately for him, things like condoms and tampons are classified as ‘medical devices’ – and you’d think that the resulting loud objections would have caused the Senator (more accurately, the Senator’s staff) to more | Read More »
Max Baucus Requires Health Care Rationing
The Washington Times recently took a look at the forced health care rationing in Chairman Max Baucus’s health care overhaul legislation: The offending provision is on Pages 80-81 of the unamended Baucus bill, hidden amid a lot of similar legislative mumbo-jumbo about Medicare payments to doctors. The key sentence: “Beginning in 2015, payment would be reduced by five percent if an aggregation of the physician’s | Read More »
Former Baucus Aide Complicit in Max Baucus’s Humana Insurance Harassment

Baucus Mafia Stifles Dissent
I wrote earlier today about the thuggish tactics employed by Washington Democrats to get their health rationing plan passed. Astute readers will note that the name ‘Max Baucus’ seems to pop up over and over – lecturing the Congressional Budget Office on how much the health care bill should ‘cost,’ telling unions what ads they can and cannot air, and warning lobbyists that they need | Read More »
The Thugs are Back in Town
Update: Several Republican Members of Congress are beginning to call the Democrats out over this. Congressman Dave Camp wants to know why the White House is censoring companies – especially while leaving supporters of the president’s plan alone. And Mitch McConnell is calling out Democratic colleague Max Baucus. I’ve not had the chance to comment on this yet (except on Twitter), but the thuggish tactics | Read More »
Please read bills before you defend them, Mr. President.
If this is a problem, don’t go on national television and give exclusive interviews. STEPHANOPOULOS: You were against the individual mandate… OBAMA: Yes. STEPHANOPOULOS: …during the campaign. Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t How is that not a tax? [snip of semantic-free commentary by the President] STEPHANOPOULOS: That may be, but it’s still a tax | Read More »
Obamacare is Unconstitutional
Judge Andrew Napolitano recently asked Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) where in the Constitution the federal government is authorized to regulate the delivery of health care. His response was ‘There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.’ Rep. Clyburn, like many of his colleagues, seems to have conveniently forgotten that the federal | Read More »

Sen. Baucus: Never mind the Republicans! Here’s our Healthcare Bill!
Some of you may remember a few days back how Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) had said that he was willing to introduce a bipartisan healthcare bill to Senate, but if he couldn’t assemble such a coalition he was willing to go it alone with just the Democrats. Well, guess what? He did: Sen. Max Baucus’ decision to release his long-awaited health care overhaul bill with | Read More »
