These are the IDIOTS that want to socially engineer this country?!?!

Rep. Henry Waxman is well known tool for the man caused global weather change crapola...

Rep. Waxman is also known to wax idiotically about global warming: "We're seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point - they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn't ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there's a lot of tundra that's being held down by that ice cap"...

Apparently Waxman feels that the people in this country will follow his lead like docile sheep...

I guess we shouldn't be suprised at Waxman's moronic viewpoint on global warming...

The Hag of the House is also selling this scam to get into your wallets...

Then again Pelosi has some serious mental problems...

When its a good thing to be equated with Bernie Madoff

Well the pathological liar known as Al Gore equating those who won't swallow the 'anthropomorphic global climate change' with Bernie Madoff:

How sad for the Supreme Goron that the facts always seem to get in the way of a rightious rant...

Consider the words of John Coleman:

Yes indeed, its all about the science...

Democrats Agree to Fast Track for Health Care Revamp

Here's the 'worry' paragraph: Obama has proposed spending at least $634 billion over the next 10 years to revamp the nation’s health-care policies with the goals of simultaneously expanding coverage and reducing costs. Most of the details of such a plan, along with how it would be financed, have not been decided. Obama’s proposal would require insurers to begin submitting competitive bids to participate in the government’s Medicare Advantage program...

The Obama Health Care Plan: A Closer Look at Cost and Coverage

Greg D'Angelo and Paul L. Winfree
WebMemo #2114

Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) has put forth an ambitious health care plan.
[1] The plan proposes:

  • Expanding eligibility for existing public programs, including both Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP);

  • Creating a National Health Insurance Exchange to serve as a federal regulator of private insurance plans that would compete alongside a new National Health Plan;

  • Providing income-related subsidies for those without employer-sponsored health insurance while mandating that children have coverage; and

  • Requiring that medium and large employers provide coverage or pay a tax, while extending tax credits to small businesses and creating a government reinsurance program to cover businesses' catastrophic health costs.

The news only gets worse...

Michael O. Leavitt and Jeffrey H. Anderson writting on the AmericanSpeakOn (found via The Foundry) about the A Trojan Horse for Government-Run Health Care:

Pay particular attention to this part of the commentary: Americans’ 43 years of experience with Medicare and Medicaid provide a jaw-dropping tale of under-projected expense and extraordinary costliness. Within two years of Medicare’s creation in 1965, the Johnson administration and the House Ways and Means Committee each projected that, in 1990, Medicare would cost $12 billion. In 1990, Medicare’s actual cost was $111 billion — nine times the original estimate. In fact, Medicare now costs more than half of what it cost to fund the entire federal government in 1965, even after accounting for inflation.

Medicare’s and Medicaid’s skyrocketing price-tags are generally kept hidden from view. So even a simple cost-to-cost comparison is illuminating: Since 1970, the cost of these flagship government-run health-care programs has risen more than two-and-a-half times as much as the cost of all other health care in the United States, the vast majority of which is run by the private sector. Since 1970, Medicare’s per-beneficiary cost — even without counting the prescription drug benefit — has risen 50 percent more than our overall per-capita national health expenditures aside from Medicare and Medicaid, rising 8 percent more in this decade alone.

The picture gets worse going forward. Medicare’s budget is projected to double within ten years, topping $1 trillion annually. The number of workers per beneficiary will soon drop from almost four to just over two and a half. The Medicare hospital trust fund, which funds the largest part of Medicare, is projected to become insolvent by 2016 — three years earlier than last year’s projection. Yet the Obama administration wants to add new federal health-care spending at a projected — not actual — 10-year cost of $1,300,000,000,000?. . . (there's more)

HEALTH CARE REPORT: Insurance warnings


In a letter to four key senators responsible for overseeing health care reform on Capitol Hill, two industry trade groups warned against implementing a proposed government-run health-benefits program — a critical component of the administration's reform plans.

Such a move would damage the private health insurance sector and "thwart the ability of the health care sector to implement meaningful delivery system reforms," says the letter by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) — the nation's largest health insurance lobby — and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

The groups added that allowing the government to compete with private insurance companies would "exacerbate the cost-shift from public programs to consumers and employers in the private market, and destabilize the employer-based system." (there's more)

CIA held dozens of briefings on techniques

The CIA briefed top Democrats and Republicans on the congressional intelligence committees more than 30 times about enhanced interrogation techniques, according to intelligence sources who said the lawmakers tacitly approved the techniques that some Democrats in Congress now say should land Bush administration officials in jail.

In Meetings, Spy Panels' Chiefs Did Not Protest, Officials Say

By Joby Warrick and Dan EggenWashington Post Staff WritersSunday, December 9, 2007; A01

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said. (there's more)

So is Nancy Pelosi a pathological liar or a fool?
