Senate Passes Insurance Industry Aid Bill

Let us not waste another breath responding to the mock outrage with which progressives react to accusations such as Sarah Palin’s “death panel” remark. Whether ObamaCare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board should correctly be described as a “death panel” or a “cost-reduction system” is actually a stale semantics debate, given that when they are not acting outraged, leftists explain their real intentions quite clearly. Cutting to the chase, the proper question to ask is, “Why are progressives willing to condemn the old and infirm to death?”A man drives up and down the highway looking for hitchhikers. Whenever he finds one, he stops to pick him up. He kindly warns the hitchhiker about the dangers of hitchhiking, and explains that he always stops for hitchhikers because he does not feel comfortable leaving them at the mercy of some strange driver. Then, once he has the hitchhiker securely in his car, he kills him.Do we describe this driver as a Good, albeit confused, Samaritan trying to protect hitchhikers from the dangers of the highway?

LAMBRO: Surprise cost of Obamacare

Several issues are being distorted in the wake of the Supreme Court’s contradictory, backdoor ruling that up-held President Obama’s health care law on a disputed word definition. Others are virtually absent from the discussion, such as who will pay the onerous penalty tax and what it will cost them if the uninsured refuse to obey Mr. Obama’s order to purchase medical insurance?

It turns out, the court’s decision means Mr. Obama’s tax will fall most heavily on lower- to middle-income people whom he has vowed to shield from his proposed tax increases. It will be a lot costlier than you think, but more on that in a moment.

Obama campaign steps up Obamacare defense

President Barack Obama’s campaign is stepping up its defense of the controversial Obamacare law, pitching it as a cost-free security blanket for unmarried women, Latinos and poor people.

The push comes shortly after Obama’s deputies argued that the public doesn’t want to hear more arguments about the far-reaching, $1.76 trillion, government-directed reorganization of the nation’s health sector.

The president’s weekend message, for example, focused on fires in Colorado, not on the law or the Supreme Court’s June 28 decision to relabel the law’s controversial penalty as a tax.

His weekend message followed his long-standing policy of saying little about the sensitive law, except that it provides free services to young people and women.

At least 15 cases of narcolepsy among children and young people in past six months

The possibility of compensations for children and young people diagnosed with narcolepsy recently is to be assessed later if a link between the disease and the swine flu vaccine is established, says Minister of Social Services Paula Risikko Nat. Coalition Party. “The matter must be evaluated when all studies have been made. Experts insist that if the illnesses and the vaccinations have a connection, we will find out.” “I understand the pain of the families and the seriousness of the situation, but it is too early to take a stand on who has responsibility to compensate.”

Even as Democrats seek the biggest expansion of health coverage in decades, as many as 23 million people could still be without insurance by 2018, illustrating the complexity of achieving the long-held Democratic goal of universal health care.
