Are We Broke (Part 1a)?  Health Rights on the Yellow Brick Road to Misery

(This is the second in a series of postings about the extent of US liabilities, their implications for our economy and personal wealth, and a path out of the mess we are in.  The Series was interrupted last week because developments in the health care debate demanded all of our attention.  This column transitions...

The End of the Constitution?

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Majority Leader of the Senate and the President of the United States are conspiring to violate the explicit dictates of the Constitution of the United States to force their statist vision of health reform on an unwilling public.  They are willing to violate the oaths of...

Contacting Congress – We Are All Spam Now

This is going to be my shortest post, ever.  And it is another interruption of my ‘Are We Broke?’ series.  But this appears to be the week we live or die on ObamaCare.  And that bill is the most important – and frightening – bit of social engineering ever contemplated by an American Congress. Like many...

Outrage!  Speaker Urges End to Constitutional Governance

The Speaker of the House of Representatives appears ready to shred what remains of the Constitution to further her power-mad agenda.   She doesn’t have the votes to pass the broadly despised ObamaCare bill, so she is favoring a procedural move that would ‘deem’ the Senate version as having passed without House members actually having to...

30%:  A Health Care Number to Remember

I’ve been arguing for a long time that we should return to an updated version of the ‘major medical’ insurance programs we had in the pre-HMO era, instead of plunging further into the pre-paid insurance morass that ObamaCare would impose.  I’ve argued that in a well-designed major medical model, prices will come down because...

By John

So it would seem the only way to pass a health reform bill that the public deeply reviles is to misuse Senate rules requiring 60 votes to pass policy legislation, and to cajole, threaten or bribe enough endangered House members to vote once again for this effective nationalization of the health industry.  Well folks,...

Health Care Forecast:  Politicians Marching Ever Deeper into the Swamp

Tomorrow’s Grand Health Care Summit is burning up a lot of BTU’s on television, radio, and the blogosphere despite the likely emergence of a national state of ennui over the whole thing.  So we’ll keep this one short and quasi-educational by taking a stab at a couple of key questions about Health Care, and...

None Dare Call It Nullification

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that at least 30 states are working to pass legislation or launch ballot initiatives that would throw down a gauntlet before the Administration and Congress on ObamaCare.  The proposals vary a bit from state to state, but are generally called something like The Healthcare Freedom Act.  At...
