Mathew Yglesias is one of the leading liberal bloggers pushing ObamaCare KennedyCare. Since every Senate vote counts, Yglesias and other KennedyCare promoters need to justify the Massachusetts legislature’s pending flip-flop on how to select a successor to Ted Kennedy, to allow the Democratic Governor to appoint a temporary (Democratic) replacement.

As of August 24, 2009, the two Democratic draft health care restructuring bills were horrible monstrosities which contained a myriad of pernicious tax and other provisions which put at risk the well-being of hundreds of millions of Americans while doing precious little to help the 10-15 million chronically uninsured. For the...

How to react to Ted Kennedy’s death? There certainly is an initial inclination to react the way so many left-wing blogs reacted to the death of Robert Novak, such as this post at the prominent Crooks and Liars:

More tax mischief surfaces, once again, when the pending House health care bill is squeezed. This analysis by a tax lawyer at the law firm of Cleary Gottlieb shows that when various cross-referenced provisions are read together, the House bill limits the discretion of the IRS to waive penalties for honest...

Remember when Tea Parties and health care protests were derided as AstroTurf because some conservative groups gave logistical support? So what do you call it when the Democratic National Committee “organizes” and “plans” 500 protests, including the use of “professionally staffed” protests? From Politico:

A good example of how far off course Democrats in Congress have strayed on the issue of health care reform, are provisions in the Senate HELP Committee draft bill creating rules and regulations governing food disclosures at fast food restaurants and in vending machines.

The House and Senate draft bills for health care restructuring are so odious that they are beyond repair.

It’s nice that Max Baucus and some others are trying to squeeze some of the disastrous provisions out of the bills, but it is a waste of time. Even if the left-wing of the...
