Ronald Reagan On Socialized Medicine
This piece of history from the great Ronald Reagan needs little set up, or commentary. As always, Reagan says it well. His very first words say so much, and looking through the prism of history were 100 percent correct. The rest is rather chilling. This speech was done in 1961 and was part of a Coffee Cup Campaign against socialized medicine, a scheme the democrats | Read More »
Reminiscing–Remember back when the Government was where we reported con artists?
I just wanted to help bring to the forefront of public awareness the currently resurfaced con game that preys on the most vulnerable among us, the elderly. As is usual in these cons, the arbitrary promised reward, normally inconsequential, in this case just happens to be the ever-elusive “affordable health care” and through slight of hand the victim is somehow convinced to endorse the signing | Read More »
Fight Back Now
We are being hit by a double whammy, which apparently is Obama’s style. His preferred way of doing business is to rush critical legislation through before our “Representatives” have a chance to read it. Right now, we have the disastrous “Cap and Trade” legislation scheduled for a vote today or tomorrow. And right behind it we have the equally disastrous Socialized Medicine bill coming along. | Read More »
Health Care Solution Involves the ‘C’ Word
No. Not THAT ‘C’ word. The word that can solve the health care and health insurance issue, that Republicans SHOULD be screaming about is CAPITALISM. Health care costs are skyrocketing. My own doctor’s office just closed its doors. The doctor left town to return to his previous clinic practice due to people just not paying the high price of a visit and his insurance payments | Read More »
What Do Liberals and Hamas Have In Common? [Closed.]
[Don't do diaries like this. - Moe Lane] To great fanfare, the first law St. Obama signed was the SCHIP law. At the risk of sounding like a baby eating monster, like Dick Cheney, I have written editorials and letters to my elected officials opposing the 2009 reauthorization on principle. SCHIP started in 1997 and was designed to provide state-funded medical and health insurance for | Read More »
He’ll show them all. This is one time where excerpting isn’t going to cut it: let me summarize this article (“Ruin Your Health With the Obama Stimulus Plan: Betsy McCaughey*”) (H/T: AoSHQ) and then you can go read both it and the soon-to-be-federal law (here is the original, and here is the Nelson/Collins amendment). Essentially, McCaughey argues that the bill contains stealth provisions within it | Read More »
New Captain at the Helm of American Healthcare
As all major news outlets are reporting , former Senator Tom Daschle has accepted an offer from President-elect Barack Obama for the post of Health and Human Services Secretary. While most people were aware that Daschle was on the short list for the job, the healthcare industry at large is not responding well to the fact that he actually got the post.
Ted Kennedy Works for His Legacy
While we continue to pray for Ted Kennedy and his loved ones, his prognosis is apparently not a hopeful one. Nevertheless, the last liberal lion is working on a legacy he can pass on to the next great liberal hope: socialized medicine.
Socialized Medicine Obama Style – The Canadian Experience
If anyone thinks that a socialized medical plan, such as that in Canada, is the answer to US health care issues, read this: It will shock you. The Ugly Truth About Canadian Health CareBarack Obama, Saul Alinsky student and ardent socialist, will impose this style of health care on us all. McCain’s plan, in contrast, leaves health care choices and decision to us and our | Read More »
