This is the fourth in a series of posts analyzing randomly selected provisions in HR3200, the House Democratic health care restructuring bill. The hope is that through random selection of pages from the House Bill, using the dartboard method, some light will be shed on the otherwise dense House Bill.

Dan at Gay Patriot has an interesting post on how Ted Kennedy saved a girl from the Soviet medical system, which could not treat her disease. Fair enough, Teddy saved a girl (I’m resisting the urge to mention …. well you know).

I am familiar with the Soviet medical system, at le...

This is the second in a series of posts analyzing randomly selected provisions in HR3200, the House Democratic health care restructuring bill. In the prior post, I examined the almost incomprehensible section 1721 concerning payments to primary care practitioners.

The page selected for this post, using the dartboard method, is page 692...

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.

CNN and MSNBC have been covering the Ted Kennedy death virtually non-stop. But it’s not working out so well, per L.A. Times:

Fox News maintained its top ranking among the cable news channels Wednesday as its competitors turned most of their coverage over to the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy. The event...

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:

Novak will perhaps be best remembered — if at all — as one of...

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...

As much attention as the draft health care restructuring bills have received, so much has been missed in the thousands of pages of proposed legislation. It is not an exaggeration to say that these proposals create numerous and layered levels of new bureaucracies, on top of the expansion...
