Saturday morning Harry Reid unveils, we think, The Real Bill. They’re even wheeling snowmobiling in Robert Byrd for the votes on procedural issues so that Reid can move The Real Bill forward as an amendment...

Not Sarah Palin, Not Republicans in Congress. Nat Hentoff:

I try to avoid hyperbole, but I think Obama is possibly the most dangerous and destructive president we have ever had. An example is ObamaCare, which is now embattled in the Senate. If that goes through the way Obama wants, we will...

Obama yesterday:

“From the discussions we had, it’s clear we are on the precipice of achievement that’s eluded Congresses, presidents for generations — an achievement that will touch the lives of nearly every American.”

It appears, from the context, Obama was intending to use the word “precipice” to mean “on the verge...

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.

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...
