Pyrrich Victory

Author: Rory B. Bellows

The news that the “Gang of Ten” Democartic Senators had reached a deal to drop the public option from health care “reform” should not be a cause for celebration on the right. Instead, this compromise is actually far worse. Under terms of the deal, people age 55 can buy into Medicare and Medicaid will be expanded to either 133% or 150% of the poverty level.

The stated goal of so called progressives like Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the only avowed socialist in the Senate, is to eventually reach the point of Medicare for all. Now that they have lowered the threshold to 55 years of age, lowering it to 45 years old in a ew years is not much of a leap. After all, what is good for 55 year olds is certainly good enough for 45 years old. And then 35 years. And then 25 years old. And finally, all of us. Medicare is broke. The program is insolvent. The Senators who wish to expand this program have finally admitted they do not care at all about this country or its fiscal condition. Creating a gradle to grave nanny state is what they are after and finances and facts be damned.

Deciding if expanding Medicare or Medicaid is worse is like deciding if dying of stomach cancer or lung cancer is the preferred way to go. Medicaid is aa crushing burden on our states. The CBO estimates that this bill will increase state Medicaid burdens by $25 billion over ten years. In New Jersey we are already facing a $34 billion dollar deficit. Have fun trying to come up with the extra money for Medicaid!

But the house is voting on not only Cap and Trade, but Card Check as well, today. Not that two laws which will ensure the detruction of capitalism and the American way of life are more important than the death of a child molestor.

The supposed centerist who is a big believer in the free market system now has the power to seize companies deemed a systemic risk to the US economy.

Obama keeps promise to make America defenseless.

In this campaign, Obama said this:

Today we have:

The cancellation of the F-22 fighter. We just gave up air superiority.

We also have:

The cancellation of our missile defense shield.

Great job.

So much for America

Author: Rory B. Bellows

Did you ever think you would live to see the day where a CEO was fired at the direction of the White House? Or how about today’s speech where Obama declared GM the winner and the Chrysler the loser? Government picking the winners and losers, that sounds more like a centrally planed Soviet economy than free market capitalism.

Oh well, we told you time and time again what this community organizer was all about. Better book those flights to China.

Tim Geither on Meet The Press:

When we get through this people are going to care less about what they make, more about what they do, what they achieve with what they make, and that will help make this country stronger.

lulz. Our Treasury Secretary thinks pancea is a world where people don’t work for money but for happiness.

America’s top ten poorest cities

Author: Rory B. Bellows

What do they all have in common? All ten have either never elected a Republican or have not elected one in at least 20 years. Another big shocker, our very own Newark is on that list.

1) Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961;
2) Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954;
3) Cincinnati, OH (3rd)… …………………..since 1984;
4) Cleveland, OH (4th)… …………………..since 1989;
5) Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican Mayor;
6) St. Louis, MO (6th)…. ……………………since 1949;
7) El Paso, TX (7th) has never had a Republican Mayor;
8) Milwaukee, WI (8th)… ……………………since 1908;
9) Philadelphia, PA (9th)…………………….since 1952;
10) Newark, NJ (10th)… ……………………..since 1907.

More proof the Marxocrats and their policies are designed to make us all poor and miserable.
