The attempts by Nancy Pelosi to cajole and/or threaten House Democrats into voting for the House health care restructuring bill has a surreal quality about it.

Pelosi reminds me of a suicidal jumper on a ledge, with Republicans trying to talk Pelosi down since if she jumps, she’ll take the health care...

One of the curiosities of the health care debate is the vigor with which two prominent tax-exempt organizations, AARP and Consumers Union, support Democratic proposals which will impose a myriad of taxes on the American people.

AARP is set to announce its support for the current House proposal which cuts Medicare and...

The Congressional Budget Office has released its “scoring” of the House health care restructuring bill.

The drafters and supporters of the 1,990-page health care restructuring bill released by Nancy Pelosi this morning really don’t understand how business works.

I’ve had only a few minutes to look at the bill, but one fundamental and profound stupidity jumped out at me.

I’m watching Nancy Pelosi’s press conference announcing the final House Democratic health restructuring bill. It’s 1990 pages.

We’ll see what the bill really says once we have time to analyze it, but here’s what we know from prior versions, news reports, and Pelosi’s talking points. The plan is phony and false political...

Harry Reid held a press conference Monday pushing an “opt out” public option knowing full well he did not have the Democratic votes to break a filibuster.

The left-wing blogosphere, which stopped listening to Reid’s press conference immediately after hearing the words “public option,” celebrated a tad too early. I’m not even...

The left-wing blogosphere practically went orgasmic when Alan Grayson (D-Fla) took to the floor of the House of Representatives and announced that the Republican health care plan was for sick people to “die quickly.” Hah hah.

Harry Reid just completed his press conference in which he committed to pushing a “public option” through the Senate. What form of public option? The Opt-Out form. What is the Opt-Out form? Let’s see what the legislative language says.
