Kennedy's Death Could Signal End to Democrats' Universal Health Care Hopes
Aug. 27, 2009
While President Barack Obama is publicly lamenting the passing of Sen. Ted Kennedy, he must surely be worried privately about what the death of this iconic Democrat from Massachusetts will mean when it comes to the final vote on health insurance reform ...

Correcting the Record on ObamaCare's Access to Individuals' Bank Accounts
Aug. 20, 2009
Although this has been covered previously here at US Conservative Politics & Perspectives, the mainstream press still seems confused regarding the obscure language of the "Administrative Simplification" section of the original ObamaCare legislation, making it necessary to revisit the bill, refute the media's false conclusions and re-assert the claims made by this bill's opponents regarding some of its more overreaching aspects ...

The Republican Health Care Reform Plan: HR 3218
Aug. 12, 2009
It may not be the reform plan conservatives are hoping for, but at least the Republican health care reform plan addresses a few of the issues about which conservatives are concerned. I'm talking, of course, about HR 3218, the bill liberals don't believe exists ...

Specter Awakens a Sleeping Tiger -- And Her Name is Katy Abram
Aug. 11, 2009
Katy’s popularity came about because she had the courage to tell Specter this: "I am a Republican," Katy said. "But first and foremost I am a conservative. I don't think this is just about health care. It's not about TARP. It's not about left and right. This is about the systematic dismantling of this country. I'm only 35, I've never been interested in politics. You have awakened the sleeping giant. We are tired of this. This is why everybody in this room is so ticked off" ...

Health Care Town Halls: Who is Staging What?
Aug. 10, 2009
As the smoke continues to billow from the heated controversy of the national heath care debate, average Americans are beginning to speak up about what they're seeing first hand at town hall meetings across the US and what they're saying is in great disharmony with what is being reported by the mainstream media ...

The Political Realities of the Health Care Town Hall
Aug. 10, 2009
Democrats on Capitol Hill are now saying the anger expressed over Obama's health care proposal at town hall meetings across the country is unreal because the participants are "organized." These sentiments echo earlier ones articulated by White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, who during a press conference last week called the opposition at the town hall meetings "manufactured dissent" ...

How Conservatives Would Ensure Lasting, Positive Health Care Reform
Aug. 5, 2009
Very often, liberals claim conservatives have nothing to offer the health care reform debate except obstructionism. The truth, however, is that the liberals just aren't listening ...

Feds Get Real-Time Access to Patient Bank Accounts Under ObamaCare
Aug. 2, 2009
Reading the ObamaCare legislation package is a little like reading some bad Orwellian novel set in the future. It's not long before the reader encounters just how far-reaching and invasive this bill really is. On page 57, under section 163, there is something that would give the government power to reach into benefits recipients' bank accounts. It is called "Administrative Simplification" ...

Guest: Conservatives Aren't the Only Ones Who Fear the Pitfalls of ObamaCare
July 31, 2009

ObamaCare, Like Obama, Not What It Seems
July 23, 2009
It should have been apparent from the first words he uttered at his press conference last night that President Barack Obama was in full-blown selling mode. Truth be damned. "I want to talk for a few minutes about the progress we're making on health insurance reform and where it fits into our broader economic strategy," the president began ...

Health Care Reform's Bad Sticker Shock
July 17, 2009
Democrats are once again sniffing around the US Treasury. This time, they're looking for another trillion bucks to spend on universal health care. The figure is particularly amazing, when you consider they spent three-quarters of a trillion dollars in February 2009 on their so-called "emergency" stimulus package, which was designed to spur job growth and revitalize the national economy (less than five months later, the economy was still foundering and the national unemployment rate had just eclipsed 10 percent) ...

Conservatives & Health Care Reform
June 9, 2009
Congressional Democrats announced their plans to take the first tentative steps toward universal health care, setting up an epic battle over health care reform, which for Capitol Hill liberals is one of the most important components of their agenda. For their part, conservatives will be focused on derailing the legislation and making their case to the American people for a free-market system that would repair the current broken one ...
