When it comes to health care, personal responsibility is the Safeway

This morning, an interview on National Public Radio revealed-- yet again-- that the private sector is far better equipped than government bureaucrats to deal with today's toughest challenges.  In his conversation with NPR's Renee Montagne, Steve Burd, CEO of one of America's largest grocery store chains--Safeway-- explained the steps that his company has taken to lower health care co

Generation Why?

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the Wall Street Journal noted last week that members of so-called "Generation Y" are heavily in favor of President Obama's proposed health care reform, despite the fact that they will be the ones left to deal with the fallout from long-term cost overruns and degraded quality of care.

Everyday 14,000 Americans Lose Their Coverage, Really?

On September 9, 2009 Barack Obama gave a speech on health care before a Joint Session of Congress in which he said that “every day, 14,000 Americans lose their coverage.”  In an email to its members on August 27, 2009 promoting vigils for those who can’t afford health insurance, MoveOn cited the same statistic of 14,000 people losing their coverage every day.  From where did this figure come and is it accurate?  MoveOn cites a study done by the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, in February of 2009 as the source of the statistic.

Offering MoveOn a helping hand.

On September 3rd, leftist group “MoveOn.org” announced that it would create advertisements to tell Americans how much money their elected officials were taking in campaign contributions from health care and health insurance interests.  In an email to its members, MoveOn said that its new ads would, “…let voters know exactly how much money their representatives have taken from the insurance industry, whose top goal this year is to kill the public option.” Here at Freedo

Liberal Mathematics- Bad Idea Then = Good Idea Now

 In 1993, with the help of then Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, President Clinton introduced a plan to reform the American health care system.  The plan—and the debate that ensued as a result of it—captivated the nation.  As a member of the Senate, Tom Daschle joined the liberal quest for universal health care.  After months of disputing the particulars of the bill, however, Daschle found himself holding the short end of the health care reform stick.  President Clinton’s efforts were declared dead

National Review: Who's really paying for health care?

This article by James Capretta over at National Review Online explains "how Senator Baucus and other Democrats jam their $2 trillion schemes into $900 billion sacks."  The tax provisions of the bill will be crushing to the employment prospects for all workers, but especially low- and mid-wage workers.

Max Baucus's errors and lies

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed yesterday, Senate Finance Committee Chairman, Max Baucus (D-MT), lays out his lies case for his version of health care “reform". The beauty of the recent turn of events/tone in the health care debate is that the public is now actually listening to the content of the Democrats’ statements, including those of Dear Leader, rather than just the mellifluous sound of his voice.

Only bipartisan part of Baucus's bill is opposition to it

Wednesday morning, Senator Max Baucus (D-MT), Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released his proposal for health care reform (attached here).  The bill, which would cost an estimated $856 billion over the next 10 years, seems to have overcome the partisan divide that exists in Washington and brought Senators from both sides of the aisle together.  Unfortunately for Baucus and his liberal peers, the bipartisan cooperation that has emerged is not in favor of, but rather opposition to, the 223 page proposal.
