Reid makes sweetheart deals to secure healthcare votes

As Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) desperately attempted to secure the 60 votes needed to pass his healthcare takeover bill, he cut sweetheart deal after sweetheart deal with other members of the Senate.  To attract Senator Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), for example, Reid included a permanent exemption from the state share of Medicaid expansion for Nebraska.  This will leave federal taxpayers footing the bill for an additional $45 million in t

Obama's broken promises

According to information gathered by the Heritage Foundation: Promise: Transparency I'm going to have all the negotiations around a big table.  We'll have negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies.

Code Red Rally Pictures

FreedomWorks joined with thousands of others yesterday to protest the government takeover of healthcare.  Starting in the morning, many groups tried to get a face-to-face visit with their Senator after traveling all this way, taking time off from work, and getting here on their own dime.  A major frustration among the grassroots has been the way it feels like our leaders aren't listening.  Yesterday proved to be no different as in office after office, visitors were pawned off on staff members or encouraged to just leave a comment or write a letter.
