Has anyone seen Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana)? He has gone missing on the health care debate.

The almost VP-nominee has flown so far under the radar that a Google News search for “Evan Bayh health care” for the past month turns up very little as to the substance of Bayh’s views on...

Steve Benen, at Washington Monthly, suggests that the enthusiastic and open embrace by some single-payer advocates of the “Medicare buy-in” idea floated by Harry Reid, as a device to obtain a single-payer system, may have scared Joe Lieberman away from the idea.

Benen laments that such advocates were so open in...

I have to hand it to Harry Reid. He may be on the verge of pulling off the ultimate card play.

Reid managed to get everyone excited and fearful through a whispering campaign about a last-minute “compromise” to expand Medicare, even though we can’t pay for Medicare as it now exists.

Good for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which leads the way in supporting breast cancer awareness and research.

In a statement just released, the Komen Foundation refuses to cave in to the despicable attempt by Jane Hamsher and some of her followers to force the Komen Foundation to end its relationship with ...

John Hawkins has an interesting post regarding a conversation he had with a Senate staffer on the chances of Obama-Pelosi-Reid-care passing this year (not likely) or in January (50/50):

John: But still, it’s looking grim right?

Senate Aide X: They are in much worse shape now than a week ago. If the bill...

Well, we can’t have Senators being forthright with their colleagues face-to-face. That is worthy of this headline:

No, what we need is more sniveling backstabbing and double-talk.

How often have we heard the left-wing blogs blather about the greatness of Medicare. How often do we hear how happy people are with Medicare, and how that proves that government run health plans should be extended to everyone.

But there is a big, ugly lie underneath those arguments. Medicare underpays doctors...

Harry Reid needs more than a weekend off. Perhaps we should, in the national interest, schedule a series of fundraisers for Reid running through the end of the year.

I say this because scheduling a fundraiser for Reid appears to be the only way to get him to take a time out...

Over the summer I repeatedly sounded the alarm about one particular aspect of the Democratic health care proposals, the mandate that individuals purchase insurance under threat of penalty or incarceration. At the time I noted the unprecedented nature of the mandate, in my post Taxing Your Mere Existence:

The latest Democratic ploy to get to a single-payer system is a wolf in sheep’s clothing hidden inside a Trojan horse.

According to reports, “moderate” and “liberal” Democrats are proposing a massive expansion of Medicare and Medicaid as a substitute for a “public option”:
