    The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to take up health care reform, which will require 51 votes to open debate.  It's unclear what any final product will look like if that first procedural vote is successful. The first vote is intended to open debate on the American Health Care Act (AHCA), the GOP-sponsored Obamacare replacement plan that passed the House of Representatives in May. Republicans need 51 votes to proceed to the legislation, which would then be subjected to what is expected to be a lengthy amendment process. Democrats are united in their opposition to the legislation,...

    The final word on the Obama administration’s signature health care law has yet to be spoken. As the Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) looms, organizations throughout the nation are lining up speakers and events to present their opinions—whether a pre-decision debate that might sway an undecided justice, or a post-mortem discussion on how the justices got it right or wrong. Regardless of when the Supreme Court decision is handed down, the June 15 Texas Bar Association debate on the topic, the interchange promises to be both lively and substantive....

    I was just watching c-span and the host was talking with his guest about health care and the teaparty "people". Many callers took the time to share views on "what the teaparty people" think, and although none claimed to be members of this maligned crowd, it was interesting to me to have others attempting to describe who I am and what I think. I thought I'd take a minute to share my views on health care as it relates to teaparty attendees, simply because I am a fierce teapartier and I write a health care blog. I can't speak for...
  • The Madness of Liberal Tyranny

    When the radical-liberal leadership of the House Democrats are meeting behind locked doors with the radical-liberal leadership of the Senate Democrats to merge an unwanted, socialized health-care bill into a final bill that will be forced on one-sixth of the U.S. economy, we are witnessing nothing less than form of liberal fascism being implemented. Because the House and Senate versions of the health care bill, each of which were passed in the wee hours of the night and on Christmas Eve, are so cumbersome, with layer upon layer of bureaucracy, and hidden away in thousands of pages, Nancy Pelosi, Harry...

    Right now, the Senate is voting on a procedural motion to table debate on the Defense bill - which Republicans are hoping to filibuster, in an effort to stall debate on the upcoming Health bill. Because Lieberman didn't show up today, the Republicans just need to stick together on this to prevail - without defections from Collins or Snowe.

    Joe Wilson's 15 minutes of infamy notwithstanding, Democrats were pretty rough on George W. Bush during a joint sessions a few years back. Two examples: In 2004, Democrats delivered a “Chorus Of Boos” during Bush's Bush’s State Of The Union when he called for renewal of the Patriot Act., according to the Washington Times. In 2005, Dems howled, hissed and shouted "No!" when Bush pushed for Social Security reform in the SOU: "Foreshadowing the contentiousness of the coming debate, Democrats broke decorum and booed twice," according to the National Journal. At the time, CNN's Bill Schneider remarked, “It was unusual....

    Obama and Public Debate George Joyce At a town hall meeting in Chester, Va. back in August last year candidate Obama had this to say about the important value of public debate regarding health care: "People say, 'Well, you have this great health care plan, but how are you going to pass it? You know, it failed in '93,' And what I've said is, I'm going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We'll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies — they'll get a seat at the table, they just won't be able...

    Swedish PM to wait in line for hip operation 25 May 2004 16:50:45 GMT STOCKHOLM, May 25 (Reuters) - Even the prime minister has to wait in line in equality-conscious Sweden. Goran Persson needs a hip replacement operation. But in a country famed for its cradle-to-grave welfare state and where politicians see themselves as ordinary folk, the leader of the ruling Social Democratic party won't go private. "I'm counting that this will be managed through public healthcare. I would be very surprised if not," Persson told reporters on Tuesday. Swedes are likely to applaud their leader, whose party pledges "people...
