The New York Times has a comprehensive list of yesterday’s election results.

The Democrats’ nationalized health care bill is getting bogged down in the Senate.

Senator Tom Coburn and Rep. Paul Ryan pen an op-ed about health reform’s moment of untruth.

According to the Heritage Foundation, Democrats slipped a $6 billion slush fund into the House health care bill.

The House may vote on a health care bill as early as Friday.

From the WSJ, a shoe store owner tells a stimulus war story.

Remember when Republicans said they’d reform earmarks? That’s not working out.

WSJ Editorial: Sacramento demands a loan from California taxpayers.

Jonah Goldberg writes, “After 15 or 20 years of steady moderation, many conservatives think it might be time to give their ideas a try.”

Steve Landsburg: “The next time some Luddite tries to tell me that living standards haven’t improved in the past couple of decades, I think I’ll hand him a copy of this book.”

  1. I am almost disappointed about that. I think they should take a day for each page in that bill for us to consider it. They they can pass it in 1990 days.

    OOOPS, Obama only has 1171 days left in office.

  2. USPS/IRS Health Care
    If health care is the problem, insurance is not the cause and government is not the answer.
    Of those “50 million,” that lack insurance there were 45,000 who died without health care.
    WITH health care, 98,000 died FROM health care because of malpractice.
    The question is do we want to trust that largest corporation in the world, the U.S. Government. Do not expect house calls anytime soon.
    We have seen how well the government delivers on its promises and its bureaucracies pursue the money without giving us benefits on so many levels.
    Imagine another 111 bureacracies that only ultimately must listen to the Secretary of the Treasury – another “service” of which is the IRS.
    That blog of mine above has several .pdf connections (HR. 3962 and two summaries, a few videos, and page references for new taxes and other mandates).
    If you cannot use the link, google “Progressive Capitalist H.R. 3962.”
    If you believe the promises of this bill, you have to deal with the lie that it fosters competition with a government option called the “Public Option” and establishes the government as a monopoly making its own rules. Don’t worry. You’ll run out of “rich” soon enough.
    We have at least a $12 trillion economy of which at least $1.8 trillion is spent on health care.
    If you read the bill, there are plenty of opportunities to soak the middle class, if you do not mind the 1.6 million made jobless.
