Dems Health Care "Reform": The more you know, the less you like

I’d like to bring your attention to a few interesting articles from recent days which argue strongly against the Democrats’ so-called “reform” of our health care system, particularly if you are not very old or sick:

NTU: "The Opt-Out Cop Out"

Andrew Moylan, over at National Taxpayers Union, notes a serious problem with Sen. Reid's new health care plan and the supposedly optional public option. But here's the fine print:

Rep. Moran and Howard Dean Town Hall

When Rep. Jim Moran and Howard Dean teamed up to hold a town hall last night in Reston, some FreedomWorks staff and friends went too. After all, we are his constituents.  We arrived far too late to get inside (a long Metro commute and 9/12 preparations don't lend themselves to timeliness), but had a great time talking with folks outside about FreedomWorks, the March on Washington, and the need to make sure cap and trade isn't lost in all the health care discussion.  Below are some pics of the night.

Turn Up the Heat in August: Help Defeat ObamaCare and Cap-and-Trade

It may be true that August is just a month, but it’s also true that the longer we have to expose the real intentions and the economic ramifications of the Cap and Tax and health care reform legislation on the table, the more afraid Ms. Pelosi, Senator Reid, and President Obama should be.

Help Us Defeat ObamaCare

The battle against a government takeover of the healthcare system is raging this summer in Washington. Public support for Obamacare has been dropping significantly the last few weeks, and I believe that much of that is due to your grassroots organizing. So let me start by saying thank you to everyone who has called their congressman, written a letter to the editor or protested outside a congressional district office this summer. We have slowed the legislation down over the past few weeks, and we are on the verge of stopping it and forcing Congress to rethink its approach to health care reform.One of the promising developments has been the opposition to the government takeover by the Blue Dog Democrats in the House of Representatives. Some of these Congressmen have flat out told President Obama that they will not support a government takeover, and others have focused on the trillions of dollars in new taxes that would be required for Obamacare. The battle against government-run health care is being fought within the Democrat party, and that is where we must focus our efforts. We need to urge the Blue Dog Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee to continue to oppose a government takeover of the healthcare system.Please TAKE ACTION NOW to send a message to these key Members of the committee. Then, follow up your email with phone calls. Bart Gordon (TN 6th), (202) 225-4231Jane Harman (CA 36th), (202) 225-8220Mike Ross (AR 4th), (202)  225-3772 Jim Matheson  (UT 2nd), (202) 225-3011Charlie Melancon (LA 3rd), (202) 225-4031John Barrow (GA 12th), (202) 225-2823Baron Hill (IN 9th), (202) 225-5315Zach Space (OH 18th), (202) 225-6265I know that you have been working hard all year to fight against the outreageous federal spending, bailouts and the inevitable tax hikes required to pay for this unprecedented push to grow government. It's been a tough fight, but one worth fighting. If we stick together during the next few weeks we can put enough pressure on the Blue Dog Democrats to sink Obamacare and defend our liberty. Thank you for everything that you have done, and we will see you on September 12th for the March on Washington!

How Much is $1.6 Trillion?

Dr. Evil once held the world hostage for a staggering one hundred billion dollars.  This time Dr. Evil’s demands have been eclipsed by the Obama Administration (instead of Austin Powers), with cohorts Sen. Kennedy (D-MA) and Sen. Baucus (D-MT) demanding $1.6 trillion for a new diabolical plot: National Health Care. As the costs of health care reform begin to take shape, some of us are wondering how much $1.6 trillion really is. Putting things into perspective, $1.6 trillion would:
