First impressions and reactions can be dangerous, but here goes:

There will be hell to pay for Democrats...

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...

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...

Camille Paglia nails it again:

By foolishly trying to reduce all objections to healthcare reform to the malevolence of obstructionist Republicans, Democrats have managed to destroy the national coalition that elected Obama and that is unlikely to be repaired. If Obama fails to win reelection, let...

The political world looked bleak on April 29, 2009, just after Arlen Specter had announced that he was switching to the Democratic Party. The Democrats, understandably crowing, seemed to be unstoppable. The Democratic agenda to control the most minute aspects of our lives through health care restructuring, cap-and-trade, and other forms...

So this is what it comes to. After eight years of protesters hanging George Bush in effigy, calling him a Nazi, disrupting conservative speeches on campuses by taking over stages or throwing pies, creating websites and movies that wished for Bush’s death, and a myriad of other indignities…. After all this...

The fight over nationalized health care is at the heart of a larger societal battle over the role of the individual. At stake is whether individual health care choices will be subservient to the state’s larger health care interest by forcing the individual to submit to state control of the most...

“Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun,” so said Noel Coward.*

So must it seem to Barack Obama and the leading Democrats who are trying to force through a vote on health care “reform” without anyone having a fair opportunity to read the bill, much less debate the provisions...
