Daily Obamacare Round-UP 08-24

Here is your Angry Mob. Terrifying!

I NEVER thought in a Million Years I would see this headline in a Boston Newspaper, "Kennedy should resign."

Ross Douthat begs us to "Don’t Blame Obama" for Obamacare. Yeah right. Does anyone at The New York Times vet these op-eds or is this kind of ridiculousness on purpose?

The Washington Times, meanwhile, uses this editorial titled, "Your taxes to pay for abortions." to explain why all those Tea Party Protestors and Townhall Angry Mobs were right. Your taxes will pay for someone else's murder of a baby. Enjoy.

Micheal Steele, Chairman of the RNC, has an Op-ed in The Washington Post on how the GOP has a plan. The piece is titled, "Protecting Our Seniors, GOP Principles for Health Care." He's basically talking about a senior's healthcare bill of rights which is all well and good but I think we need protection from Obamacare with a bit more teeth. Something like NO Obamacare.

Yet another call for interstate competition amongst healthcare insurance companies. This time from the Wall Street Journal in a piece titled, "The Competition Cure, A better idea to make health insurance affordable everywhere." If it works for auto, life, and homeowner's insurance, why can't it work for health insurance. It can't work worse than medicare.

"Attorneys should pony up, Lawsuit reform could help health care reform" is the title of this editorial from The Washington Times. I have a better idea that solves all tort-reform issues in two words: Loser Pays. They don't have nearly the problem of frivolous lawsuits in Great Britain because if you bring a lawsuit to a British court and lose, then you have to pay for not only your own lawyer but the defendant's as well. It's not perfect but it works.

"$10B aimed at union retirees, Provision called welfare by some, not enough by others." My take-away from this article is that Obama's government is buying off unions at taxpayer expense. What do you think?

Lawmakers said Sunday that President Obama must scale back ambitious plans to overhaul health care because ballooning budget deficits are undermining support for more comprehensive and costly legislation.
The above is the opening paragraph to this article titled, "Growing deficit frames health care debate" from USA Today. So does this indicate that liberals and democrats are finally realizing why the townhall Angry Mobs are so angry?

"Millions face shrinking Social Security payments." We knew this was coming but politicians repeatedly punted on doing something about Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid. These programs originated with FDR who was not the shiniest star in the galaxy when it came to ecomonics. And let's face it, liberals/progressives/socialists' policies are always based on theory rather than real world experience. Always. So now the social security chickens are coming home to roost and we have a faux FDR as president and a corrupt Congress to boot. Hope and Change ya'll.

This New York Post article titled, "The Real Reason" is a hoot for its NYC-style directness.
"While the commentariat's condescension is almost comical, the whole evil-or-stupid explanation misses the elephant in Obama's room: Americans of all stripes, it turns out, aren't very keen about the government barging into their lives."
I miss New York City and I loved this article. Go get 'em boys!

The New York Post also points out in this article here that our taxpayer dollars will be going to "sex studies" as part of the stimulus package. But how can that be? Obama promised to be fiscally responsible. HA!

I'm reposting this article because I love the title, "Congressman Herger calls Obama plan 'threat to democracy'". Amen brother.
