The Health “Scare” Campaign

Sign seen at a recent “town hall” meeting:


Admirable concept that will be ignored because of “leadership” from people like Obama’s “reasonable man”, Chuck Grassley, on CBS

(CBS/ AP) Key senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from health overhaul legislation after language in a House bill caused a furor.

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Thursday that the provision had been dropped from consideration because it could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly.

Only if you add a lot of demagoguery, Chuckles, or are as ignorant as Glenn Beck.

You may have seen Katy Abram on Hardball discussing the “rage” of “regular people” over health care reform.

Alas, Ms Abram neglected to mention that she was a local leader of a Glenn Beck 9-12 group, what was called a Sturmführer in the Sturmabteilung, when the white guy doing the ranting had a small mustache and convinced people to act like thugs at political events.

Since Katy is such a stickler to the exact words of the Founding Fathers, she wouldn’t mind not being able to vote, being a “woman” and all that. Last I recall, we didn’t get “the right” to vote “many” years after the Founding Fathers original words were put to paper.

Originally people got to vote for their local officials, the state legislature, and members of the House. Senators and the Electoral College were chosen by the state legislature. Initially, the President and Vice President were nominated and elected by the Electoral College.

There wasn’t a lot of choice for individual voters, who, in most states had to be men of property initially.
