How Can You Not Trust Those Granny Glasses?
Maybe I’m missing something, but I believe that’s the basic defense of ‘ObamaCare’ coming from Linda Douglass – former ABC News correspondent and current Communications Director of the White House Office of Health Care Reform. That’s right — the White House Office of Health Care Reform. By now, most of us have seen this video, which was linked recently on the Drudge Report. It shows Barack | Read More »
Politico Smears ‘ObamaCare’ Opponents
Promoted by Erick. What the heck is an “anti-reform” protestor. No, it is “anti-Obamacare” protestor. Politico, ever the objective source of political news and analysis, has provided a handy list of “5 Things to Watch During the Recess.” One in particular caught my attention because it was so egregiously loaded with bias: #4: Who Will Come to the Tea Parties?

The push for Obama Care and recent scandal in New Jersey has led me to post a thing or two about organ transplants. Why? I am the receipient of a kidney transplant. Just over a year ago, I received a kidney from a cadaver donar. I waited on dialysis three years for a kidney. Many wait even longer. Dialysis is treatment that prolongs life by | Read More »
Tea Party Overwhelms Obamacare Advocates in Fort Collins [Updated]
Video coverage from the event by The Coloradoan Obamacare advocates organized a rally in Fort Collins today. Originally it was going to be near Betsy Markey’s office, but at the last minute they tried to move it to another location, probably because they didn’t want to end up on the wrong end of the numbers.

The President is headed to Bristol, Virginia today, to appear at a Kroger’s grocery store to push his health care overhaul. The purpose of the visit is to put a little more pressure on Virginia Senators Warner and Webb, as well as local Congressman Rick Boucher, none of whom is currently supporting Obamacare.

No vote on health care in House before recess
The Politico’s Glenn Thrush reports that Republicans are circulating emails that there will not be a health care vote in the House before recess. That’s the top-line story. But the second story may be even more striking and damaging for Nancy Pelosi and House Republicans. There still isn’t a plan to get the bill out of the Energy and Commerce Committee. You will recall that | Read More »

Let Freedom Ring
It is really coming down to the wire whether or not the House is going to pass a health care bill before the August recess. The Republicans are not plentiful enough to be an issue for Speaker Pelosi to even take into consideration. They only need 218 votes in the House to pass a bill, and there are 257 member in the Democratic Party House | Read More »
Obama Throws AMA Back Under the Bus
As Erick points out, Obamacare took another heavy shot today, as the CBO concluded that the much-vaunted reforms pushed by Democratrs to control Medicare costs would have little or no effect. OMB Director Orszag has fired back quickly however, in an attempt to turn lemons into lemonade. He says that while CBO may have little faith in the provisions as they are currently drafted, a | Read More »
Only We the People can keep Dems blue enough to stop Obama-nonCare
Recent history showed we couldn’t even trust a GOP Congress under Bush to control government spending. The past century of history reveals the myth of the conservative blue dawg Democrat. Blue dawgs are mostly drawl and that’s all when it comes to final votes on major legislation, and yet, they are now Americans’ only hope to avoid, at minimum, a near decade long Great Recession | Read More »
AARP on ObamaCare
As we know, the “non-partisan” AARP is completely in the bag when it comes to whatever Democrats want, including on ObamaCare. Here are a few samples from a Q&A they have posted. Why is AARP not standing up for seniors when Obama says he will cut Medicare to help pay for health care? The proposed changes to Medicare will help to get fraud, waste and | Read More »
