Speaker Boehner: Honor your pledge, or resign, NOW!

February 16th, 2011 No comments

James SimpsonJAMES SIMPSON: It is almost impossible to believe that a mere month into the new Congress, old guard Republicans led by House Speaker John Boehner are stampeding to violate key campaign pledges. We have seen the “resolute” House Republican leadership quail over the prospect of actually making a paltry $100 billion in promised spending cuts. We have seen tough talking Darrell Issa backing off desperately needed investigations of blatant Obama administration corruption and abuse of power. Now the leadership is putting up roadblocks to the only chance we may ever get to stop Obamacare.

The House is currently considering a Continuing Resolution to fund government programs for the rest of the year. A temporary CR was passed in the waning days of the 111th Congress that expires March 4th. Without a new CR the government will then shut down.

Representative Steve King (R-IA) offered an amendment to the CR that would entirely defund Obamacare. What better way to force Democrats to abide by the crystal clear will of the American people than to offer them the stark choice of passing the CR and defunding Obamacare in the process, or having the government shut down due to their arrogant stubbornness? And do most Americans care if the government shuts down for a while?

NO! We’d be relieved! Shut it down and keep it shut until the Democrats squeal “Uncle!”

So, Republicans should be all for King’s amendment, right?

Wrong.

Last night, the House Rules Committee headed by David Dreier of California, blocked the amendment, claiming that it violated House rules. This is absolutely false. As King stated in a Washington Times editorial today:

One of the tactics is to argue that my proposal violates the rules by legislating on an appropriations bill. It wasn’t a violation when Congress defunded the Vietnam War, and it’s not a violation now. The CR, the very bill that I seek to amend, has language in it that blocks the use of any funds to move detainees out of GuantanamoBay. By their definition, they’ve set a precedent and all I ask is to use the same tool to debate and vote on blocking the use of any funds to implement or enforce Obamacare.

Defunding Obamacare also would avoid $105.5 billion in Obamacare seed money slated for spending in 2011 that Nancy Pelosi slipped into the bill last year. So not only could Republicans keep their pledge to stop Obamacare, they would actually be doubling the budget cuts offered in the CR. Read more…

One More Doctor Quitting Practice Due to Obamacare

April 14th, 2010 1 comment

Dr. Joseph Scherzer Says Obamacare Will Force Him to Close ShopSCOTTSDALE, AZ: Dr. Joseph M. Scherzer has informed his patients that unless Obamacare is repealed he will no longer to be able to treat them. He reports that the stress of the new requirements will force him and many of his colleagues to retire early or simply quit practice.

Scherzer said the bill’s emphasis on punitive measures for physicians not following government-prescribed treatment methods under Medicare would increase his anxiety level to the point he would no longer be able to practice medicine. The maximum fine was previously $10,000; under the bill it will now be capped at $50,000. Scherzer said the fine system makes seeing a Medicare patients a difficult and stressful exercise.

“Doctors have actually committed suicide over these things. There’s no insurance to cover it,” Scherzer said, calling the fine system “tremendously complicated and Frankensteinian.” “It’s absolutely impossible to be certain you’ve complied. I feel like when I see a Medicare patient I have the Sword of Damocles hanging over my head.”

Dr. Scherzer reported his experience with Medicare to Neil Cavuto on Fox this afternoon. He said that when Medicare become so unmanageable he discontinued taking Medicare. As a result he lost 90% of his Medicare patients. It is his experience that unless a patient has insurance he will not be able to be treated, so going to a cash basis with his practice once Obamacare goes into effect will not be an option.

What will the government do when more and more doctors leave their practices? There are not enough doctors now and throwing 30 million more patients into the system won’t make it any better. Is it Obama’s plan to force the doctors to practice medicine?  Maybe that’s why he says he needs a national police force.

Healthcare for Illegal Aliens – Wilson Was Right

January 6th, 2010 No comments

WASHINGTON: There are many who are digging into H.R. 3200, “America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.” (You can download entire bill here by right-clicking and save to disk. If you click directly on the link it may crash your browser.)

H.R. 3200 has a very interesting statement of purpose:

A BILL

To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; TABLE OF DIVISIONS, TITLES, AND SUBTITLES.

SHORT TITLE.—This Act may be cited as the ‘‘America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009’’.

We wonder what those “other purposes” are? Could those purposes have something to do with Congress establishing control not only over 1/6 of our economy but over the very lives of every American?

It looks to us like Joe Wilson was right that illegal aliens will be covered under the plan, according to section 152. Section 152 prohibits discrimination in health care, “without regard to personal characteristics.” By giving illegals health care would one of those “other purposes” be to gain support among illegal aliens for Democrats?

Pelosi OK with Sending Uninsured to Jail

November 12th, 2009 No comments

OK Jailing UninsuredWASHINGTON: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked on November 9th if she was OK with sending the uninsured to jail. If you listen to her response she seems to indicate that poor people won’t have to buy health insurance, they will get it free. However the rest of us will have to pay the piper or do jail time. This seems to be OK as far as she is concerned.

This is a good strategy for Democrats who passed this bill as it picks up even more voters who free-ride the system while costing them only votes from Libertarians and Republicans who won’t vote for them anyway. You can see her response to this question in this video from Komo 4 News (ABC Seattle): Read more…
