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.

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.

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...

In recent days Democrats started floating the idea of a “Medicare Buy-In” proposal, and as of last night, there appears to be a deal, although the details are not fully known. I addressed the lack of merits in a prior post.

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”:

Senate Democratic liberals are seeking expansion of two large...

Unbelievable. Harry Reid compares those opposed to Democratic health restructuring proposals to people who opposed freeing the slaves, granting women the right to vote, and expanding civil rights:

“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start...

Another day, another exposé by a British newspaper about the failure of nationalized health care. This time, it’s the left-wing The Guardian reflecting on how delays in cancer care cause 10,000 unnecessary deaths each year compared to other European countries:

Democrats have a thrill running up their legs because health care economist Jonathan Gruber of MIT has proclaimed that private insurance policies “in the non-group market” will cost $200-$500 less if Harry Reid’s plan becomes law.

The analysis is rudimentary.
