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.

Joe Wilson

Due to exceptionally high traffic, this site is temporarily unavailable.  Please come back shortly.  http://www.joewilson.house.gov/ 

Joe Wilson who yelled, “You Lie” during the President’s speech last night has been so overwhelmed his website has gone off line!  .gov bites the dust when the going gets tough. 

The president was greeted by booming applause from Democrats and polite handshakes from Republicans. But the political challenge at hand soon became clear as several Republican lawmakers heckled Mr. Obama when he dismissed the notion that so-called death panels would deny care to the elderly.

“It is a lie, plain and simple,” Mr. Obama declared.

“You lie!” Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina yelled back after Mr. Obama said it was not true that the Democrats were proposing to provide health coverage to illegal immigrants. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/10/us/politics/10obama.html?_r=1&hp

Wilson’s outburst was probably not planned, but an out pouring of emotion and affront to his intelligence.  How long could anyone sit there and listen to well,…lies with out having a comment of some sort of another?  I can not repeat here the words I was thinking while watching this-

For Wilson of South Carolina- enough was enough at about the half way point in the lecture.  He could restrain himself no more.

Senator John McCain felt that Wilson should apologize.  I feel maybe Obama should apologize for stating directives that can never be paid for the way he intends to.  

Wilson was the bigger man although I am not sure I would have- saying, “While I disagree with the president’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable, I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility.”  I just know he had his fingers crossed behind his back as he made the statement.  I might move to South Carolina just so I can vote for Wilson.  Seems like a nice place and they’ve got great beaches and fishing.

It’s about time someone in politics took a stand.  Former Congressman Traficant who was just released from prison might have said something like, “Beam me up, Scotty-who knew there was a politician left who had balls enough to speak the truth?”
