They’ll applaud anything

The so-called dean of the Washington commentariat is still blissfully doing backstrokes in the tank filled with Obama Kool-Aid. We are beginning to learn that the Obama presidency will be an era of substantial but deferred accomplishments — perhaps always to be accompanied by a sense of continuing crisis. His vaunted "cool" allows him to […]

Your Congress at work

Courtesy of Allahpundit over at Hot Air comes this bit of comedy gold. The law apparently bars members of Congress from the federal employees health program, on the assumption that lawmakers should join many of their constituents in getting coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges. But the research service found that this […]

Does the means justify the ends?

John Weidner over at RandomJottings makes an excellent point on what will eventually occur as the comparative effectiveness panels under the new health care regime begin to make life and death decisions about medical treatment. Imagine a person is made a slave because our law allows it. And another person is made a slave because […]

Let the rationing begin

Last year, when one iteration of the health care bill introduced us to “comparative effectiveness panels” that would decide on what sorts of medical treatments would get paid for under the new health care regime, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin referred to them as “death panels.” That earned her a “Pants on Fire” and “lie […]

Define: “Insurance”

The problem with requiring insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions is that the companies are therefore not really offering “insurance.” If you crash your car and the next day go to Flo at Progressive Insurance, pay your premium and then immediately file a claim, prepare to serve some time in the slammer for fraud. In […]

How do you like it now?

Now that the Obamacare is the law of the land, we’re finally getting an idea of how this is really going to work. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, they had to pass the bill before we could know what’s in it. So what is in it? Are premiums going to go down 3000 percent […]

A bit of practical advice

UPDATED and BUMPED For those of you who don’t have employer-provided insurance and who have decided to insure your kids instead of yourselves – if this bill becomes law drop the coverage for your kids and get it for yourself. Why? Because as soon as the bill becomes law, it will be illegal to deny […]

The Final Countdown

A few thoughts as it appears that the Democrats have finally managed to bribe, cajole and lie their way to a “victory” on health care “reform” later tonight. Bart Stupak is either not pro-life or stupid. He’s not stupid. Stupak apparently knew this day would come, and accurately predicted that he’s a sell-out. You can […]

It’s just not fair

I think the American people would really appreciate it if the Democrats could come up with someone to match wits with Rep. Paul Ryan. This sort of thing just isn’t fair. In fact it’s probably a form of elder abuse (as it relates to Reps. Louise Slaughter and Sander Levin) and a hate crime (as […]

Assume the position

In the next 24-48 hours, the House will “vote” and the Senate health care reform bill will be passed – or “deemed” passed. There will be debate and lawsuits to follow as to whether President Obama can sign the Senate bill or whether the Senate must approve the House’s “fixes” first, etc. ad infinitum. Democrats […]
