Insurance companies now join energy speculators, auto CEO's, bank executives and wall street traders as the newest scapegoat to attack ...

That guy is so smooth the way he slides the knife in.

Update: Pelosi gets in on the act.

Update #2: Boortz sees the trend as well ...

Kathleen Sebelius Op-Ed is Propaganda

This Op-Ed byKathleen Sebelius is nothing but a fluff piece full of half truths and outright lies.

Her three main points:

"First, to provide Americans with more affordable choices, we’ll set up a marketplace where you can compare plans and pick the one that’s right for you. None of the plans would be allowed to deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition. And one of the options should be a public plan that would increase competition and keep private insurance companies honest.

Second, we have to align incentives for doctors and hospitals so that they’re rewarded based on the quality of care they provide, not on how many tests or procedures they prescribe.

Third, we need to move from a sickness system to a wellness system. By investing in prevention and emphasizing healthy lifestyles, we can save money while improving health."

#1 by forcing insurance companies to cover everyone will raise premiums. Forcing everyone into one-size fits all plans will raise premiums. The reason you can't shop for competing plans today is because of government intervention and mandates, not because of dishonest insurance companies.

#2 If you pay for your own health care you already make sure your health care providers do a good job. Its only in third party payer system, like insurance or Obamacare where this problem occurs and nothing proposed will help that unless you end up rationing or mandating treatments.

#3 It has been shown in countless studies that disease prevention measures don't save money. In fact quite often they are shown to cost more.

This is yet another partisan hack pushing a socialist agenda for Obama.

Organic Food May Not Be Better

Looks like the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine says that organic food is not healthier. To quote the article "A small number of differences in nutrient content were found to exist between organically and conventionally produced foodstuffs, but these are unlikely to be of any public health relevance," said Alan Dangour, one of the report's authors.

This is going to be a tough sell with my wife. We buy alot of organic and grow our own in an organic garden.

Obama ,The Chicago Way

Read Michelle Malkins Bully Boys , this gem at the NY Times Visa's Revoked and finally Blackmail ? . This administration clearly plays hard ball with its supposed friends and wiffle ball with our clear enemies. Maybe this is Obama's definition of "moderate". You get the feeling they really mean, "We Hope you'll Change your mind about opposing us, it would be a shame if something happened to you".

AGW, Health Reform Scam,Foreign Policy, Clinton

Our King/President and World leaders tell the Earth's temperature not to rise. "They are so cool, those world leaders."

Its the Chicago way - America's health-care CEOs are being taken for a ride by Congress and their own lobbyists. "But I thought lobbyists worked for their clients interest ? Maybe they are, the client is Obama and the Democrats."

Obama is Our Foreign Policy Neophyte. "Obama needs another 4 years to rise to the level of neophyte. He's giving empty suits a bad name."

"I believe the central parts of the [EPA] chart are that U.S. action alone will not impact world CO2 levels," EPA Administrator Jackson said. "All pain, no gain. Those EPA scientists are so dope."
