That’s What Elections Are For

February 25, 2010

Fox News is reporting that President Obama ended the health care summit by threatening to pass a health care reform bill without Republican support.  BHO said, “If we’re unable to resolve differences over health care, we will need to move ahead on decisions,” alluding to using reconciliation, a controversial maneuver that prevents a GOP filibuster by requiring only 51 votes.  How much did that summit cost tax payers?

But what’s more interesting was his follow up comment.  Obama added that if voters are unhappy with the results, then “that’s what elections are for.”

Did the President just dare the American public to vote him and other supporters of the health care bill out of office?  Neither the Congress or the President has an approval rating anywhere near 50%.  Be careful what you ask for…you just might get it.

Your Medical Records – Online?

September 25, 2009

One of the big points inside the healthcare debate is how to cut costs from the system. Streamlining information has proven to cut cost, but what about privacy?

Wired.com reports that one man wants to remove legislative obstacles that would open access to patient medical records. Some say that this would allow patients to share their experiences with others who have similar conditions. It would also give doctors more data about the impact of treatments. Others say the data is private and should remain that way.

What’s your opinion?

ACORN Stung…Again!

September 17, 2009

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles have done it again.  Their fifth video was filmed at the ACORN office in San Diego and it appears that the ACORN worker actually offers to help bring under age girls to the USA for the purposes of prostitution.  To see it, please visit www.BigGovernment.com

Many people say that ACORN should lose all federal funding.  They were on track to receive Billions next year.  I agree and so do all but 7 US Senators…good luck to those 7 in getting re-elected!  But I have a bigger issue with ACORN.  How many real criminals have they helped break federal and state laws against prostitution, tax evasion and fraud, among others?  Can you say RICO?  Why is the FBI not at every ACORN office in the country right now sifting through email and other records?  Who is protecting this organization and why?
