Help Us Defeat the National Soda Tax

During the presidential campaign of 2008, Barack Obama pledged that those making below $250,000 would not see their taxes go up one dime. He promised to cut taxes for the middle class and poor people. But if his friends in Congress get their way, President Obama will have a tough decision to make – whether to break his campaign pledge again in the form of higher taxes on soda and “sugary drinks” like sports and energy drinks.

Prelude to ObamaCare

Without intending to, today's New York Times exposes the inherent problems with government rationed health care services, with lobbyists jockeying for advantage in the Medicare reimbursement game.  Already a dominant purchaser of health services, Medicare has created a shortage of primary physicians by cutting reimbursements.  Now imagine a world where all Americans are herded into Medicare....  Infinite demand for free services, skyrocketing costs, and some Grey Suited Soviet with a clip board determining if the medical procedure you need to live is worth the cost to the Treasury.

Beware of Strange Bedfellows in Washington

The consumer group Families USA and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) are teaming up in Washington to lobby to increase coverage for Medicaid.  Why would the medical companies support more government intervention in their industry?  Maybe because they did a cost-benefit analysis and concluded that they would make more money with more interventions.  According to Politico, "The upside is that it would help drug companies tap a new market by providing coverage to those who are too poor to buy drugs."  These groups worked together on S-CHIP as well, likely for the same reason.

FreedomWorks Launches Campaign Against Secret Socialized Medicine Provision in Budget

Washington, DC –  Included in President Obama’s budget is a $635 billion ‘down payment’ for health care reform.  President Obama does not get into details on what his healthcare reform would be, but he never the less asks for hundreds of billions of dollars to be pre-approved for it.  This money would no doubt be used to centralize health care decisions with bureaucrats in Washington and expand bankrupt entitlements programs.

FreedomWorks Cheers Introduction of Generic Biologics Bill

Washington, D.C. – FreedomWorks is encouraged by the efforts of House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D, CA-30) and Health Subcommittee ranking member Nathan Deal, (R, GA-9) to promote competition and reduce the costs of health care by creating a streamlined process for the approval of generic biologic drugs, the next generation of life saving drugs for millions of Americans.  Waxman and Deal this week introduced a bill that would allow the Food and Drug Administration to approve generic biologic drugs in a timely manner to ensure that Americans have access to the latest life-saving therapies at competitive prices.
