Government Rationed Healthcare

October 31, 2009

“Mankind will in time discover that unbridled majorities are as tyrannical and cruel as unlimited despots.” – John Adams

Truth, something Democrats cannot stand.

No one wants to explain what is ‘better’ about paying more, and getting less. Democrats government rationed healthcare, summary … Kill granny, save money, give money saved to Democrat constituencies, get elected for life. Ask trial lawyers and Hugo Chavez for details.

Sort of like generating electricity with windmills, or driving your car on ethanol. All cost more for less.


NY-23 Scozzafava Suspends Campaign

October 31, 2009

What will Newt do?

State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava (R) announced on Saturday she would suspend her campaign to fill former Rep. John McHugh’s open House seat, citing dismal poll numbers just days before the much-hyped special election.

Her exit from the race offers serious momentum to Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate who has stolen from Scozzafava a slew of important GOP endorsements and donations in recent weeks.

Pelosi Communist Nut’s Introduces Their Government Rationed Healthcare Plan

October 29, 2009

I forgot, didn’t they already do this?

So expect for using find and replace on the crap in your other bill, HR3200, how does this improve healthcare for Americans? Oh Government rationed Healthcare is changed to the “Consumer Option” … LOL. The Democrats think you are all fools.

It’s a Communist’s dream. Reuters reports:

Democrats in the House of Representatives finished work on Wednesday on a healthcare bill that includes a government-run insurance plan, requires individuals to buy health coverage and imposes a surtax on the wealthy to help pay for it.

The measure, the product of weeks of closed-door talks to merge three pending health bills, will be unveiled by party leaders on Thursday and submitted to the full House for debate as early as next week.

The bill includes a government-run “public” insurance option that uses reimbursement rates negotiated with healthcare providers, Democrats said, a setback for House liberals led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi who favored a more “robust” version to compete with private insurers.

Pelosi failed to gain the 218 votes needed to pass a version of the government-run plan using lower rates pegged to Medicare, the health plan for the elderly.

The healthcare measure being prepared for debate in the Senate also includes a public insurance option based on negotiated reimbursement rates but, unlike the House bill, it would allow states to decline to participate.

The House’s version of a sweeping healthcare overhaul, President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority, would require individuals to buy insurance and all but the smallest employers to offer health coverage to workers, Democrats said.

It would offer subsidies to help the uninsured buy insurance through newly created exchanges and would expand eligibility for the Medicaid program to those with incomes up to 150 percent of the poverty level.

Of course it’s Reuters, not known for getting it right, so take your chances for now. The state-run media insists that the majority of Americans want government to takeover the health care industry with a public option plan.

Hey Taxpayers, How Is That GM Bailout Working For You ?

October 29, 2009

Not so good huh? Well it wasn’t a real bailout, it was a handout to the unions, so some solstice is deserved.

GMAC the lender that received two government bailouts totaling $13.5 billion, is negotiating with the Treasury Department for a possible third lifeline next month.

The U.S. is studying a capital injection of $2.8 billion to $5.6 billion. GMAC probably needs less than the maximum because conditions have improved and are less dire than envisioned.

GMAC may get more government money because the Obama administration regards GMAC as crucial to the survival of the U.S. auto industry. General Motors Co., its former parent, and Chrysler Group LLC rely on the firm to finance their customers. GMAC will report third-period results on Nov. 4, after loses in seven of the last eight quarters. So what’s the bet, turnaround? So like with AIG GMAC is used as a funnel to add support to the dying patient, GM.

The problem with government sinkholes is they never seem to get filled in.


Government Rationed Health Care, The End

October 28, 2009

Complete with screenplay and fine music as the assisted suicide doctors come in … It’s the scene from Soylent Green that was key to leading police officer Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) to the fountain head of the mystery, where does Soylent Green come from? Elderly police researcher Sol Roth (Edward G. Robinson) figured out Soylent Green, it’s people, and decided to die instead of reveal the secret.

Trailer:

Sol’s death scene:

The future form of assisted suicide?

From the film ‘Soylent Green’   — Charlton Heston’s tears at Sol’s death were real, as Heston was the only cast member who knew that Edward G. Robinson was dying of terminal cancer. This was the 90th and last movie in which Robinson appeared. He died nine days after the shooting was done, on January 26, 1973.

The “going home” score in this part of the film was conducted by Gerald Fried and consists of the main themes from Symphony No. 6 (“Pathétique”) by Tchaikovsky; Symphony No. 6 (“Pastoral”) by Beethoven; “Morning Mood” and “Åse’s Death” from the Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg.

We may get there yet … Obamcare has all the characteristics. When you are no longer productive, do the right thing for the greater good. If this gives you the creeps, it should.


Dismantling America

October 28, 2009

Must read editorial …

Thomas Sowell
Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many “czars” appointed by the President, could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90 percent?

Did you think that another “czar” would be talking about restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to subsidize newspapers– that is, to create a situation where some newspapers’ survival would depend on the government liking what they publish?

Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking about having a panel of so-called “experts” deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments?

Scary as that is from a medical standpoint, it is also chilling from the standpoint of freedom. If you have a mother who needs a heart operation or a child with some dire medical condition, how free would you feel to speak out against an administration that has the power to make life and death decisions about your loved ones?

Does any of this sound like America?

How about a federal agency giving school children material to enlist them on the side of the president? Merely being assigned to sing his praises in class is apparently not enough.

How much of America would be left if the federal government continued on this path? President Obama has already floated the idea of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries.

We already have local police forces all across the country and military forces for national defense, as well as the FBI for federal crimes and the National Guard for local emergencies. What would be the role of a national police force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown shirts of dictators than like anything American.

How far the President will go depends of course on how much resistance he meets. But the direction in which he is trying to go tells us more than all his rhetoric or media spin.

Barack Obama has not only said that he is out to “change the United States of America,” the people he has been associated with for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles and the people of this country.

Jeremiah Wright said it with words: “God damn America!” Bill Ayers said it with bombs that he planted. Community activist goons have said it with their contempt for the rights of other people.

Among the people appointed as czars by President Obama have been people who have praised enemy dictators like Mao, who have seen the public schools as places to promote sexual practices contrary to the values of most Americans, to a captive audience of children.

Those who say that the Obama administration should have investigated those people more thoroughly before appointing them are missing the point completely. Why should we assume that Barack Obama didn’t know what such people were like, when he has been associating with precisely these kinds of people for decades before he reached the White House?

Nothing is more consistent with his lifelong patterns than putting such people in government– people who reject American values, resent Americans in general and successful Americans in particular, as well as resenting America’s influence in the world.

Any miscalculation on his part would be in not thinking that others would discover what these stealth appointees were like. Had it not been for the Fox News Channel, these stealth appointees might have remained unexposed for what they are. Fox News is now high on the administration’s enemies list.

Nothing so epitomizes President Obama’s own contempt for American values and traditions like trying to ram two bills through Congress in his first year– each bill more than a thousand pages long– too fast for either of them to be read, much less discussed. That he succeeded only the first time says that some people are starting to wake up. Whether enough people will wake up in time to keep America from being dismantled, piece by piece, is another question– and the biggest question for this generation.

Anatomy Of A Disaster

October 27, 2009

The pace is quickening — Circulation at newspapers shrank at an accelerated pace in the past six months, driven in part by stiff price increases imposed by publishers scrambling to offset rapidly eroding advertising sales. Otherwise known as the spiral of death, when you lose so much revenue that you have to hike prices to stay viable in the market. This drives away more customers, repeat and rinse until done.

Average daily circulation at 379 U.S. newspapers plunged 10.6 percent in the April-September period from the same six-month stretch last year, according to figures released Monday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

It’s the largest drop recorded so far during the past decade’s steady decline in paid readership — a span that has coincided with an explosion of online news sources that don’t charge readers for access. Many newspapers also have been reducing delivery to far-flung locales and increasing prices to get more money out of their remaining sales.

The latest decline outstripped a 7.1 percent decrease in the October 2008-March 2009 period and a 4.6 percent decline in last year’s April-September window.
