According to the Congressional Budget Office, the House Health Care bill would cost $894 billion over 10 years and extend insurance coverage to 36 million, covering 96 percent of Americans. It is expected to cut the deficit by $30 billion in the first 10 years according to Organizing for America http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/CloeAxelson/gGMy2r

This morning, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil(ed)  the re-tooled Affordable Health Care for America Act (HR 3962). (Read the bill HERE.) with props to http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/2009/10/29/details-house/ who notes that the legislation on the floor next week, with a final vote before “Veterans Day,” November 11th. At the moment, “House Democrats do not have firm commitment from enough lawmakers to guarantee passage of their bill.” One whip count has shown 23 centrist Democrats intend to vote against any health bill. Assuming that all Republicans vote against it, the bill can lose at least 38 Democrats and still pass the chamber.

From The Republican address on health care, delivered by Dr. Charles Boustany (R-LA) following President Obama’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress-

I read the bill Democrats passed through committee in July. It creates 53 new government bureaucracies, adds hundreds of billions to our national debt, and raises taxes on job-creators by $600 billion. And, it cuts Medicare by $500 billion, while doing virtually nothing to make the program better for our seniors.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkbZByZCvKU

Pretty lame that you have to dig through the site for the last health care republican response while Harry Reid, a democrat is right on the ball and front and center at in a new Web video posted Thursday, making the case for a public health insurance option and appeals to voters across the country to contact Washington to “push hard” for its inclusion in the final bill.   Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/29/reid-calls-on-americans-c_n_339054.html.  If nothing else, Democrats have mastered the use of the Internet and every social bookmarking site in existence while with the exception of a few individuals GOP Republicans most certainly are lazy and inept.

The GOP Solutions for Healthcare’s  homepage at http://www.gop.gov/solutions/healthcare hasn’t been updated since Summer- barring a few links at the bottom and following Twitter Accounts from John Boehner at http://twitter.com/GOPLeader  where he offers:

10 Facts Every American Should Know About Speaker Pelosi’s 1,990-Page Gov’t Takeover of Health Care http://gopleader.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=152063

“I’m asking you to believe,  Not just in my ability, to bring about real change in Washington…I am asking you to believe in yours,”  President Barack Obama.  We are coming to believe President Obama’s changes are critical to future of America and her sovereignty and we are not alone-

The narrative of a President who is too pliable has been growing in volume since the summer, much to the chagrin of the White House. Nor is it coming only from the right. There are those on the left who feel let down by Obama and are infuriated by his “political pragmatism”. They object, for instance, when he refuses to push aggressively for the so-called “public option” to compete with private insurers in a new health care system, or when he declines to meet with the Dalai Lama in Washington because his agenda with China is more important to him. They even don’t like it when he brushes off a member of Congress openly calling him a liar as being unimportant.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/obama-twelve-months-on-the-star-falls-back-to-earth-1811148.html

 absolute bullshit

In true transparency of government Politico points out the contents of the bill with text like – 

“(a) Outpatient Hospitals – (1) In General – Section 1833(t)(3)(C)(iv) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395(t)(3)(C)(iv)) is amended – (A) in the first sentence – (i) by inserting “(which is subject to the productivity adjustment described in subclause (II) of such section)” after “1886(b)(3)(B)(iii); and (ii) by inserting “(but not below 0)” after “reduced”; and (B) in the second sentence, by inserting “and which is subject, beginning with 2010 to the productivity adjustment described in section 1886(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II)”.

Republican Rep. Joe Barton, who is Texan, said the bill is “about four reams of paper” that add up to the American public “getting reamed.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/28904.html

Adding more wasted taxpayer dollars- the U.S. has spent $1.5 billion for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1’s progress and educate the public about prevention. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/big-business-swine-flu/Story?id=8820642&page=1  Hopefully with good intention, the program has resulted in the fact most 1 out of 5 children have already had H1N1 Swine and the vast majority of vaccines will not be available until after the Swine Flu Season has peaked- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/swine-flu-vaccines-unused-government-healthcare-wakeup-call/

Where are Joe Wilson and James Traficant when you need them? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/joe-wilson-apology-fingers-crossed/  “You Lie ” and “Beam me up,” come to mind as this reform bill comes from the depths of  hell for small business, taxpayers and patients.

Whitehouse-Extra-Mural--57785

President Obama is scheduled to return to the United Sinking States of America sometime today after yet another standing room only rock star tour.   In six days, he traveled to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany and France.  He delivered the kind eloquent speeches that GW could nary do, not fumbling a word; but filled with contextual imperfections that leave many nations reading between the lines as to his intentions.  In reviewing Obama’s quotes from the tour, Firedog Lake asks, “Is it me, or is awaiting Obama’s follow-through a bit like standing in front of a slot machine wondering if a payoff will actually come.” http://oxdown.firedoglake.com/diary/5644 

This tour paid off with some family time in Paris where Obama lit a candle and listened to a children’s choir in the 12th century Notre Dame cathedral.  Awww, how nice!  Not only does he have honorary degree from Notre Dame University, but what a privilege to be in a church where no one at the pulpit says, ” God Damn America.”  Surely, he would rather have been at the Springsteen show for the Working On A Dream tour that was playing in Stockholm.  http://www.backstreets.com/news.html 

Obama will be begin his next tour with his political group Organizing for America with his return to the United Sinking States of America today.  This  public relations tour looks to again remove the rights of individual states and citizens, and increase reliance on the federal government.

In conquering the banking and auto industry, the health care industry is next on the socialistic agenda. In the weekly blog at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/WEEKLY-ADDRESS-President-Obama-Outlines-Goals-for-Health-Care-Reform/  Obama said, “We must attack the root causes of skyrocketing health care costs.  Some of these costs are the result of unwarranted profiteering that has no place in our health care system.”  When did profit become so wrong in capitalism? 

“After months of insisting he would leave the details to Congress, President Obama has concluded that he must exert greater control over the health care debate and is preparing an intense push for legislation that will include speeches, town-hall-style meetings and much deeper engagement with lawmakers, senior White House officials say.” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/07/us/politics/07policy.html?_r=1&hp  “Obviously,” Mr. Emanuel said, “the president’s adoption of something makes it easier to vote for, because he’s — let’s be honest — popular, and the public trusts him.” 

Popularity may have won him the election, but the battle on the hill is full of distrust and maneuvering.  A new Harris Poll reveals that no one in Obama’s Cabinet and administration is helping his strong popularity ratings at all.  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2009/06/harris-poll-obama-team-pelosi.html Most disheartening, the poll reveals, ” The new online poll of 2,681 American adults taken last month shows that after eight years of the well-known Evil Crowd, many on Obama’s team are not only not well-known, they’re little-known. Almost unknown.”  Is there any wonder why Americans wake up each day and “ask yourself-well…how did I get here? ” http://www.lyricsfreak.com/t/talking+heads/once+in+a+lifetime_20135070.html from The Talking Heads.

Tickets for the trust Obama tour aren’t cheap.  From The Daily Pfennig, a daily email newsletter from Everbank https://www.everbank.com/  so far have cost , “Your family’s share of the government debt is now over half a million dollars. A record $546,668, to be exact. That cheery Monday stat comes courtesy of a USA Today study, which claims that each American family’s share rose 12% in 2008. That’s $55,000 in new government debt last year for every US household – thousands more than the median household annual income. ”  Add in the bailouts of 2009 and if health care is expensive now, just wait until we see the ticket price when the government takes over. 

The ticket cost for freedom is priceless.  The ticket price for the Obama Administration plan to change the world and America’s health care; to be determined later, in full transparency of course. 

Patients United Now – http://patientsunitednow.com/?q=node/233 (which is anti-nationalized healthcare group) has posted what it claims is a copy of the forthcoming Obama healthcare bill. It’s 167 pages long also posted at  http://www.businessinsider.com/help-analyze-obamas-health-care-bill-2009-6
