PAWLENTY PRAISES INSURANCE MANDATES

If you think Mitt Romney is the only Republican presidential hopeful with an affinity for laws forcing people to buy health insurance, think again. Tim Pawlenty never made Romney’s fatal error of signing a mandate into law, but it’s clear that he would have done so if given a chance. Here’s an audio of Pawlenty [...]

VIDEO: DNC CHAIR PROVES DEMS HAVE NO PLAN TO SAVE MEDICARE

The Dems have spent a good deal of time trashing Paul Ryan and his plan to save Medicare, but have offered no sensible counter-proposal. In this clip, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is asked for a reasonable alternative and can’t produce anything but the same tired “Mediscare” whoppers she and her accomplices have been peddling all along:

RYAN: WASHINGTON HAS NOT BEEN HONEST WITH YOU ABOUT MEDICARE

In this video, Paul Ryan does his usual excellent job of explaining why the President’s plan to maintain the status quo on Medicare is unsustainable. Then, he offers a workable alternative to a program that has already accumulated a $24.6 trillion unfunded liability:

VIDEO: CAIN PRAISES RYAN’S MEDICARE PLAN, HAMMERS GOP OPPONENTS FOR COWARDICE

In this interview, Cain says he supports Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to save Medicare “one hundred percent.? And, when the interviewer asked him why other GOP candidates (like Romney) are shrinking from the Ryan plan, he tells the obvious truth: The people who are backing away from Ryan’s plan, they simply lack courage … I don’t know [...]

VIDEO: LEFTY PUNDIT STORMS OFF STAGE DURING MEDICARE REFORM DEBATE

Simon Rosenberg, President of liberal think-tank NDN, gets his ass kicked so badly in this segment that he tears his mike off and leaves the stage. Ironically, the moderator had actually interrupted THE CONSERVATIVE so that Rosenberg could finish reciting his talking points, but the schmuck was so uncomfortable outside the progressive cocoon that he just [...]

VIDEO: CLINTON WARNS RYAN THAT NY-26 WILL ENCOURAGE DEMS TO RUN ON “MEDISCARE”

The tragedy of the NY-26 election results is not that a Dem won, but that she won using the old “Mediscare” tactic. Even Bill Clinton understands that the current Medicare funding model is simply unsustainable. In this clip, he worries aloud that the NY victory will encourage the Dems to continue their irresponsible failure to face that fact: I’m [...]

GALLUP: HERMAN CAIN BEGINS GOP RACE WITH HIGHEST INTENSITY OF SUPPORT

That light that the other GOP candidates see at the end of the tunnel is the Cain Train and it may well run them down. According to Gallup he’s the one who generates intensity among the important primary voters: Newly announced presidential candidate Herman Cain, although still not widely known, has the highest Positive Intensity [...]

VIDEO: DENNIS MILLER ON PELOSI WAIVERS

By now, everyone in galaxy knows that a big chunk of the latest ObamaCare waivers went to high-end businesses in Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district. In this video, Miller pretty much sums up the ethics of the former (Thank God!) Speaker of the House: I can’t tell if Nancy Pelosi is telling me a bold-face lie or [...]

SPRING VACATRON

FYI—-The sporadic posting during the past few days is due to my sojourn in and around Vancouver. I took the following shot of the North Shore range from Burnaby Mountain and, as you can see, the scenery is vastly superior to the Canadian health care system:

VIDEO: THE TRUTH ABOUT OBAMACARE

Sally Pipes, health care policy expert and former Canadian, explains the ugly facts of life under ObamaCare.  It comes down to this: “Access to a waiting list isn’t access to care.” This must see video is from the May 14, 2011 “Doctors Town Hall,” held in Costa Mesa, California: [ht Paul Hsieh]
