It Costs Money To Save And Extend Lives

Published by under Obamacare

Probably one of the most important articles on Health Care costs verses access came out in the Washington Post today, showing why cheaper is deadlier in this key area of our economy: In the 1960s, the chance of dying in the days immediately after a heart attack was 30 to 40 percent. In 1975, it […]

Government Take Over Of Health Takes Down President Obama

Published by under Obamacare

The democrats have learned the same lesson they had to learn in 1993-1994. If you attempt to take over the world’s premier health care system by claiming cheaper is better and bureaucrats are better than insurance companies, you lose the American people who know their health care is the best – which is why it […]

Strata-Sphere Back On Line

Published by under All General Discussions

Sorry folks, a combination of travel and family outing caused us to miss what looks like a denial of service attack on the Strata-Sphere until late this afternoon. Hopefully things are back to normal.

Congressional Liberals Hell Bent On Self Destruction

Published by under Obamacare

Before I get into the lemming-like actions of the congressional liberals on Obamacare, I must warn the ‘true conservatives’ from not snatching defeat from the jaws of victory on this. The reason the Obamacare push is failing is not because the far right did anything better or smarter, it is because the centrists (from the […]

President Obama Failed To Calm The Nation’s Health Care Fears

Published by under Obamacare

It is clear President Obama’s presser last night failed to address the nation’s fears about what a liberal designed, government run, one-size-fits-all take over of health care in America. In fact I would wager he made those fears worse because his attempt to paste over the reality was so transparent and simple minded he actually […]

President Was Spinning Like A Top Last Night

I missed the big event last night, but if the transcript is any indication the President was in ful BS mode: Six months ago, I took office amid the worst recession in half a century. We were losing an average of 700,000 jobs per month, and our financial system was on the verge of collapse. […]

Obamacare Losing Support Across The Board, 1/3rd of Dems

Published by under Obamacare

Rasmussen shows a 14 point shift in support for Obamacare in only the last month, from  a +5% in June to a -9% in late July. But what is even more telling is the partisan breakdown: There is a huge partisan divide on the health care plan. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Democrats favor it. However, the […]

Government Motors Is A Wake Up Call On All Risky DC Liberal Schemes

Published by under Obamacare

Update: John Stossel has a great point: It’s crazy for a group of mere mortals to try to design 15 percent of the U.S. economy. It’s even crazier to do it by August. Yet that is what some members of Congress presume to do. They intend, as the New York Times puts it, “to reinvent the […]

Most People Have Health Care, And Probably Don’t Want The Government Messing With It

Published by under Obamacare

Most Americans have health care according to Gallup: Obama and Dems want us to focus on the 14% without coverage, but the political reality is which is the bigger interest group. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. I would wager the ONLY things the insured people would allow government to […]

Obamacare: Only The Strong Will Survive IV

Update: I have created a new post category on Obamacare which includes all our previous posts on the matter of who will be allowed to gain access to treatment. Update: Michael Gerson pens the best political observations of the year: So how are these moderate elements being treated by the Democratic establishment? For the most […]
