I’ve spent some time going through Harry Reid’s 2,074 page health care restructuring bill. If you read the dozens of prior posts regarding prior versions, you pretty much know the story. There are many good analyses of the tax and other aspects, so read up.

While some details have changed, this is...

Tom Coburn (R-Ok) may request, as is his right under Senate Rules, that the entire 2,027 page Harry Reid health care restructuring bill be read out loud on the floor of the Senate prior to debate:

A little quick math shows that at a minute a page — an easily achieved...

There is one number about which Harry Reid and the Democrats almost never talk: 255 million.

That is the number of Americans who have health insurance, according to the September 2009 Report released by the Census Bureau (at page 20). The vast majority of those people (70%) are happy with their coverage,...

Health Care Shock and Awe

It is clear that Democrats, who opposed shock and awe on the actual battlefield, find it a useful tactic in the health care debate.

Last night, Harry Reid released the 2,074 page bill he created in secret, and he wants to start debate immediately. If he had his way (which fortunately he...

Finally, Harry Reid has released his health care restructuring bill. It is a whopping 2,074 pages.

And it will save money, is his spin. The CBO report is not yet posted on its website and has not been released by Reid, so it may not be until tomorrow that we get to...

Any day (minute, hour?) Harry Reid will release his health care restructuring plan. If reports are true, Reid plans to start debate as soon as he can get the necessary votes, and have the Senate work Saturdays until Reid gets his up or down vote on the Senate floor.

Harry Reid has a big announcement: Debate will start on Monday on the health care bill! (Assuming Reid gets enough votes to start debate).

Which health care bill? We do not know. Reid has not released the bill. He’s keeping it in his rather-large back pocket until he gets what he hopes...

Is it possible to pay more than 100% of your last dollar of income in taxes? And if it were, would you bother to earn that last dollar?

Herein lies the key to how Democrats will obtain a permanent, economically-enslaved majority if universal income-based health care subsidies are enacted. And it is...

Joe Lieberman threw a healthy dose of water on the Pelosi-Reid-Obama health care fire this morning, reiterating that he will join in a Republican filibuster of any Senate health care bill which contains a public option. This is at least the second time in recent days Lieberman has made this commitment,...

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...

With each passing day, I am becoming more and more convinced that the Obama administration’s sustained and crude attacks on Fox News are a big diversion.

Sure, the attacks on Fox News are unprecedented in the post-Nixon era. Barack Milhous Obama may not be change we can believe in, but it is...
