ObamaCare – Dead?

January 27, 2010

So what’s the deal with ObamaCare?  Yesterday, the news was out that the Democrat leadership was going to attempt to pass the Senate bill along with a reconciliation ‘fix’.  The rank-and-file had not yet lined up around it, however.  Now, it seems that it may very well be dead.  It appears that Reid will have [...]

Democrat Leadership to Push ObamaCare Reconcilliation Bill

January 26, 2010

So the Democrat leaders are insistent on trying to drive their party off a cliff by using budget reconciliation as a tactic to try to ram ObamaCare through.  Here’s the situation:  the ObamaCare bill that passed the Senate does not have enough support in the House without significant changes.  Everything from the public option, to [...]

The Catholic Bishop’s Complicity in Pushing ObamaCare

November 9, 2009

Every time I write a post that is critical of the Catholic Church, a part of me feels uneasy.  After all, I am a committed Catholic who believes in and follows the teachings of the Universal Church, and usually defer to the authority of the Bishops in most matters.  However, after serious consideration and reflection, [...]

1,502 Pages

October 20, 2009

1,502 pages.  That’s the size of the Baucus Bill monstrosity that has finally been published by the Senate finance committee.  That is one massive piece of legislation.  Republicans and Conservative bloggers are scrambling to read the bill, to determine exactly what it is that the government is going to be passing.  Yet the Senate wants [...]

What The ObamaCare Insurance Mandate Means

October 11, 2009

Wake up America.  The individual insurance mandate that will be imposed by ObamaCare means not only a lack of choice in how you spend your money, but also means that unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. will get to change the rules whenever it suits their whim.  This type of bad policy is already on display [...]

A Conservative Health Care Plan

October 8, 2009

Getting Conservatives elected in 2010 and beyond will depend not only on stopping the Democrat policies, but on presenting our own conservative alternatives.  At some point, Conservatives will have to stop punting and start doing something on health care.  The rising cost of health care is becoming an increasing problem in this country, both for [...]

Shady Practices In Promoting ObamaCare

September 23, 2009

This has been the week of exposing shady practices in the Obama Administration’s promotion of its proposed ObamaCare legislation.  First, the ever-compelling blog network run by Andrew Breitbart (who exposed the ACORN scandal), has uncovered tapes of a high-ranking Obama staffer offering grant money to artists through the National Endowment of the Arts, if only [...]

GOP Doctors Against ObamaCare

August 23, 2009

The House and Senate GOP has been making use of the doctors in its caucus.  The GOP boasts among its membership 9 doctors in the House of Representatives, and the only two doctors in the Senate.  This has led to some great anti-ObamaCare PR from the GOP, from the Senate Doctor’s Show, to some addresses [...]

Alone on Obamacare

August 19, 2009

Word has it from various sources that the Democrats, reading the cards (the lightning-struck Tower probably), are ready to forget bipartisan support for Obamacare and may jam it through anyway.  All this blaming of Republicans for obstructionism is laughable since with a clear majority in the House and a filibuster-proof Senate, the Dems can do anything they [...]

Milk Carton Politicians

August 17, 2009

The term “Milk Carton Politician” was coined yesterday by Ed Morrissey to identify politicians who refuse to hold town hall meetings in August to discuss health care.  He has compiled a comprehensive list of the Senators and Representatives who have yet to hold a town hall meeting.  The idea is now taking off, as protesters [...]

Is The Public Option Dead?

August 17, 2009

Is the Public Option dead in regards to health care?  It seems it may be, but the jury is still out.  Yesterday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Katleen Sebelius told CNN that the public option was not an essential part of health reform. This had the duel effect of confusing the administration’s message and [...]

Is ObamaCare Doomed for Failure?

August 13, 2009

There are increasing signs that ObamaCare is doomed for failure.  The left is getting more and more desperate, as they try to counter the growing insurgency that is rising in this country among Conservatives, Independents, and normal, conservative/moderate Democrats.  People don’t want their health care touched, and they are making their voices heard.  People oppose [...]

Smears And Intimidation: How Chicago Thugs Take Out The Opposition

August 6, 2009

Much of Obama still remains a mystery to me.  Yes, he is a far-left radical who is a thug from the Chicago Political Machine.  Yes, he wants to remake America in his own image.  Yes, he is an egotistical maniac who wants nothing but adoration from throngs of followers.  Yet I keep vacillating back and [...]

This RNC ad which just came out highlights the first 200 days and the accomplishments of the Obama Presidency — 2.5 million dollars lost, trillions in additional deficits, bailout after bailout — and declares the Obama Presidency a failed experiment.  Then, it asks if America is ready to try another Obama experiment in regards to [...]

They Are Even Protesting ObamaCare In Massachusetts

August 5, 2009

The Tea Parties have had quite an impact at the health care town hall meetings in the last week.  One expects Tea Party dominance at town hall meetings in Texas.  One can even understand Tea Party dominance at town hall meetings in Pennsylvania.  What one does not expect is for tea party protests to dominate [...]

Get Seniors Opposing Obamacare and it’s Toast

August 5, 2009

“Make the anti-Obamacare argument about seniors and watch them vote the right way next year” is one notion I’ve started hearing from conservative circles on how to expand the anti-Obamacare grassroots base.  Helping in this effort is an ad that Dick Morris wants you to see which focuses on seniors: After following his four-step process for action [...]
