ObamaCare gets one step closer to becoming reality
The hospitals have been bought off or, depending on your viewpoint, succumbed to the best deal they could hope for. The nation’s hospitals will give up $155 billion in future Medicare and Medicaid payments to help defray the cost of President Barack Obama’s health care plan, a concession the White House hopes will boost an overhaul effort that’s hit a roadblock in Congress.

Kent Conrad Makes Liberals Angry
If all you’re doing is looking at the rules of the Senate, it certainly appears that Senator Conrad is right. He’s also being very politic – inasmuch as Democrats would pay a heavy price if they passed a costly, tax-raising health care plan, which went on to become a political liability in the midterm elections. That said, the liberal activists who animate the Democratic party | Read More »
Quick, Clever Responses to Obamacare Arguments
Simple, clear, plain english is good when it comes to health care. It is hard to do unless you are really good. It is even more difficult to make talking about health care interesting and witty. The winner is George Newman writing in the Wall Street Journal in an article titled: “Parsing the Health Reform Arguments.” If you are going to read any one thing | Read More »
A Danger of Obamacare
I am of the belief (and I’m sure I’m not alone here) that socializing, nationalizing, whatever you want to call it, health care is the absolute worst thing for America, and I feel my story is a good example why. Nine years ago was the worst summer of my life. I was pregnant and due to other medical conditions, was high risk. I was put | Read More »
Some Not-so-NICE Realities about a National Healthcare System
This, like abortion, euthanasia, and capital punishment, becomes an issue of sanctity of life versus its commoditization. When NICE recommends availability of treatment under the pressure of mandated budget frontiers, life has been shorn of its fundamental sanctity. The decision of life or death for the patient balances on the steelyard of political feasibility versus budgetary affordability.
The Post-War Dream and the Great Society both are contingent upon the infinite bounties of a functioning market economy. Yet each paradoxically constrains the wellspring of wealth required to jet-fuel the colossal expenditures intrinsic to either. In the end the rationing boards run out of rations. Operations Research algorithms fail in the absence of feasible solutions within the walled-off regions under constraint.

ABC Perpetuates Obama’s Malpractice On Health Care Reform
Today as ABC runs it’s “All Obama, All Day” programing dedicating huge chunks of its broadcast day to push the Presidents Health Care Reform – which I and many dub ObamaCare™ there is growing opposition to the presidents plan from all quarters including his own party. A major issue most people are becoming very weary of is the continued lie’s the president has repeating a) | Read More »
RNC ad takes on ABC’s glorified ObamaCare infomercial
The Republican National Committee has launched a new ad, entitled “Bipartisan,” that criticizes Obama’s plans to overhaul the system and ABC’s partisan involvement – turning the network’s airwaves over to President Obama to pitch his government-run health care: The ad may be a bit too subtle, but is one of the RNC’s better efforts.
Obamacare sounds so…Logical
One of those nights when nothing on Obama’s health care plan sounds good, something on TV made it sound worse.

The President and his allies in Congress have perfected their argument: health care in this country is expensive. Something must be done. This is something. Therefore, we must do this. Unfortunately, it is clear that the president’s plan is too costly, does not cover the uninsured as promised, and will make health care worse in America. To the first point, the Congressional Budget Office has | Read More »

This is tax reform?
From the Washington Post: “There is a growing awareness of the need for fundamental tax reform,” Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) said in an interview. “I think a VAT and a high-end income tax have got to be on the table.” With income tax “revenues” plummeting 34% in April of 2009 compared to April of 2008 the parasites in Washington are looking for another way to | Read More »
Card Check Loses Another Senator
Colorado’s Michael Bennet – who faces the voters for the first time next year – had a rough meeting with ‘progressives’ in Colorado. It sounds as if he thinks that his re-election chances suffer if he supports the Obama agenda. In particular, he doesn’t like Card Check: Bennet has been one of the few Senate Democrats who have declined to take a stand on the | Read More »
The Phony Democrat Budget
Congressman Paul Ryan, the senior Republican on the House Budget Committe, today laid out the problems with the House Democrat Budget Resolution:
Why Didn’t Obama Invite Any Health Care Experts to His Health Care Summit?
Update: It looks like the list of participants is considerably longer than Roll Call reported. Sorry to have steered you wrong. Although I still wonder what half the groups on the linked list have to do with health care! Roll Call reports on the White House’s list of groups it invited to send a representative to today’s health care summit: The White House delayed releasing | Read More »
