Rep. Carnahan Lies to Constituents About Cost of Obamacare
It’s obvious why he’s lying, of course: if Carnahan admitted how costly the House Democrat health bill will be, he would get a far worse reception. Congressman Carnahan tells his constituents that the CBO has scored the House Democrat health bill and concluded that it produces a $6 billion surplus. That’s an out-and-out lie. You can find the CBO score here. If you look at | Read More »
Health Care Envy
I swear, liberals, especially those who pretend to be progressives, are more obsessed with the size of the health care benefits than they are with what is needed. Listening to Hannity this afternoon, I was struck by a Dem caller who said we need to have ‘equal’ health care benefits. Huh? These people have such a bad case of class envy, it drives every single | Read More »
Ten Ways ObamaCare will Kill You
The Obamacare bills in Congress are a clear and present danger to the life, liberty and prosperity of Americans. That’s why I call the Waxman House bill the “Destroy American Freedom Act” and urge everyone to learn about how horrible these bills are. The healthcare ‘reform’ engine is based on myths like the myth of 46 million uninsured, but the lies are getting exposed and | Read More »
AMA Splinters Over Failure to Oppose Obamacare
Democrats are touting the fact that the AMA has signed on to their health care reform effort. But is the AMA really representing the views of its members, or are they playing a Washington game: currying favor with the Democrat majority, in the hopes that when negotiators decide who’ll pay for national health care, they’re not left holding the bill? Here’s one suggestion that the | Read More »
KILL IT WITH FIRE – Obamacare Bill Outlaws Future Private Health Care Plans
Ironically, Obama didn’t technically lie. But he is resorting to lawyerspeak in order to foist this sick (ha!) monstrosity of legislation ‘pon the American people. Investor’s Business Daily reported Wednesday afternoon that on page 16 – not that bloody difficult to find – that the House’s version of socialized medicine outlaws the buying and selling of new health care policies from private insurers. So technically | Read More »

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. You need | Read More »
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.

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.
