ObamaCare Round Up and LinkFest: PART II

The Other McCain has a review of Michelle Malkin’s overview of the way Michelle Obama treated patients at the University of Chicago Hospital.  It is not pretty.

Gateway Pundit has information indicating that Obama’s Health Care Advisors want to euthenize Americans who can no longer pay more in taxes then they can receive.  Didn’t I say that OregonCare is ALREADY doing that?  Oh, that’s right, I did. ActivelyFuzed, what do you say to this?

Okie reports that  ACORN  is going after those who disagree with the President on ObamaCare.

Similar events happened in Baton Rouge recently, where ACORN siced the Police on people who where discussing ObamaCare away from the event.

The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler also has some info on a Nurse forced to preform Infantacidal Eugenics, after she was threatened with letters in her Curiculum Vitae accusing her of Insubordination and Patient Abandonment should she refuse. How long, under ObamaCare, till they use this to force Nurses to Euthenize +65 year olds who are refusing to comply with their End-of-life Counselor’s recomendations?  We already know the Top Advisors of Obama in this field are recomending this option for all those who get sick but don’t have Private Health Insurance.

Hot Air Reports that ObamaCare Activists are just ignoring the facts altogether.

At least Newt is trying to come up with something.

Healthcare Solutions

This is going to be a brainstorming post that I will be coming back to from time to time to update with new ideas I have on how to fix the healthcare “Crisis” in the United States without government control.  Free Markets rock, and will be the basis of my ideas.

There will be a poll, so please, tell me which ones you like best

  1. Healthcare Savings Accounts: the widespread use of HSA’s would probablly mean the posting of Healthcare Service Costs in a Doctor’s office, and would make the whole system more competitive, and as I ranted a while ago, Competition is Life, Stagnation is Death.
  2. Insurance Choices: I call this the Progressive Auto Insurance Style of Health Insurance shopping (they really should sponsor me for as often as I mention them in this blog) where, like they show in the commercials, you walk in, tell them what you want to cover and how much you want to pay, and work out a policy that works for you.  Combine with an HSA, and we should be able to bring down the cost of Healthcare for everyone.
  3. Opening Up of State Borders: Let people go shopping.  There are over 300 Health Insurance Companies in the United States of America, yet the average citizen has access to about 2% of them because he lives in the wrong state.  Let us buy whatever policy we want to buy, and supplement it with additional care as we see fit.
  4. Loser Pays Tort Reform: Right now, every time that a malpractice case is filed against your doctor, YOUR Health Insurance Premium goes up.  This is for a VERY simple reason.  As the costs of their Malpractice Insurance Costs increase, so that their Malpractice Insurance Company can pay for their Lawyer, in order for them to stay in business (because, like it or not, For Profit ANYTHING work harder then Not-For Profit) they must pass off the costs into an increase in the cost of service, and like all shit, it rolls down hill onto you and me.  If we create a Loser Pays system, it will create a greater burden of proof on Plaintiffs, and will prevent cases like the John Edwards Cesarean Section case that resulted in 45% of all children being born in needless C-Sections…
  5. Reducing the Corporate Taxes on Pharmaceutical Companies: This forces companies overseas, and adds an increase to their Overhead.  Thanks to these Corporate Taxes, many of our Pharmaceutical companies are moving overseas to Ireland, creating a Shipping Overhead that we have to pay, on top of the Corporate Tax Overhead that already exists because they do business in the United States.  The FairTax would go a ways towards fixing THAT problem.

Those are just a few thoughts.  Vote in the poll to tell me which you think would work best (and feel free to vote for more then one).

Alaska Joins Oklahoma

Sarah Palin (Awesome) has signed a bill that passed through the Alaska Legislature declaring the Sovereignity of Alaska, joining Oklahoma.  This is all done under the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution of the United States.

Several other states are doing the same.  You can track them here. I plan on doing so.

Free Market Warrior Kicked Out of Mall

A Conservative Kiosk in a mall in North Carolina was kicked out of the mall because the owner of the kiosk sells Conservative Merchandise, in opposition to the Liberal owner of the mall, who kicked the man out after one woman claimed the merchandise “Promoted Slavery.”  I looked at their website, and I saw nothing that promoted slavery, the closest that to it was one that said, “I guess it was easier to vote for Obama then to get a Job.”

The best merchandise they sell on their website is a roll of IRS 1040 Tax Form Toilet Paper, which I will be buying for my apartment as soon as possible.

Dennis Moore Tea Party Mk. II

There are times when I REALLY wish I had GPS.  And yesterday, between 1600-1630 was one of those days.  I tried to find Emanuel Cleaver’s office for the protest, but as I had written the adress wrong, I couldn’t find the office.  So, frustrated, I was on my way home, when someone sent a message in to 980 kmbz, telling Shanin and Parks to ask Dennis Moore to look out the window.

So, I showed up at Dennis Moore’s office around 4:45, in time for the last twenty minutes of a protest I hadn’t even been aware of until I heard about it on the radio.  I need to start finding more sources.

The good news with this though is that I was able to give my friend Kansas Meadowlark some audio of chanting for the protest video.

Also, from his blog, it would seem that there will be two Federal Reserve Protests next week, which I encourage all of you to attend.

The first one will be at Dennis Moore’s office at 1615 on Friday, and will be an Audit the Fed rally.  Please, come with chants ready, and give them to the young man in shades and carrying a Betsy Ross Flag.

The second one will be in front of the Federal Reserve Building itself, and will be a Welcome Party for Chairman Bernanke.  Any chants you give me at the Audit the Fed rally will also be used at the Welcome Party.

Just a heads up, these crowds are usually much rowdier, so come with water bottles, as you may find yourself chanting and cheering with the rest of the crowd, and that uses up more water then you think.

Well, this was going to be an anylsis on ObamaCare, but it has, for the most part, become a Link Fest.

Gateway Pundit examines an Investors Business Daily article on the program.

“Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.

So, in other words, if we go looking for new coverage after the bill comes into effect, we are stuck on Government Healthcare.  Yeah!  Not.

Gateway Pundit also declares the Good News that the public is turning on ObamaCare.

Michelle Malkin:

Michelle Malking also discusses the IBD article.

Her column in the papers today goes even deeper, and is a must read.

Claire McCaskill Tea Party Mk. II UPDATE: Cops called on St. Louis Tea Party

I just got back from the Health Care Tea Party in front of Claire McCaskill’s office. That was fun, if small. It seems that only 20 people saw the message to come and protest, including a pair of nuns of the Franciscan Order, who delivered a number of petitions signed during the protest to the aides working in her office.

I informed them of the 1600 hours (4:00 pm) Tea Party at Emanuel Cleaver’s office, and hope to see my readers there this after noon. Until then, I plan on eating my lunch, and hydrating.

I asked the question there, and will ask it again here, If Obama chose a Eugenicist for his Science Czar, who will he chose for his Health Care Czar?

Michelle Malkin has more on the nationwide protests, including pics from our buddies in St. Louis.

Gateway Pundit has more info on the St. Louis Tea Party, where not only did they lock the doors and close the blinds (which they did at ours) but also called the cops to force them off of Public Land.  That is absolutely disgusting, and Claire McCaskill should be ashamed.  The Tea Parties have not been violent.  They have not been rude.  They are the Politest protests I have ever seen.  And Claire calls out the police to force them off public land?

One thing that did piss me off at ours, was the locking out of the Franciscan Nuns who where out with us, when they went in to deliver the petitions.  I had to pull out my Cell Phone and call them to ask them to open the doors because they where not letting us in (we had several people going in either individually or with a partner to complain).  It was disgusting.
