Then Obamacare Is Dead

Saturday, July 18, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

From the New York Times:

“I want to be very clear,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address to the nation. “I will not sign on to any health plan that adds to our deficits over the next decade. And by helping improve quality and efficiency, the reforms we make will help bring our deficits under control in the long term.”

There isn’t any serious observer who believes either the House or Senate is remotely close to agreeing on such a revenue-neutral plan, and the “government option/public plan” is so wildly expensive that any plan with such a component means the president is simply not leveling with the public here as he continues to press for such a plan.

Take a moment to join the nearly half-million people who have already signed on to the petition urging the Congress to stop this charade now. These are the sort of numbers and response that gets noticed –and which kills bad bills.

“Kosovo and the Citizen Soldier of the National Guard”

Friday, July 17, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Back home in the USA, but my new Townhall.com column is about the men and women deployed in Kosovo.

Thanks to Jude and Duane for guest blogging the past many days, and to Jude, Carol Platt Liebau, Eric Hogue, Mark Larson and Jim Geraghty for guest hosting the program this week.

Leaving Kosovo

Wednesday, July 15, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

If you ever get an invitation to visit the citizen-soldiers of the National Guard at work, take it. I am leaving Pristina, Kosovo after three days with the professionals of the 40rth Infantry Division’s mission to this very young country, and thanks to the efforts of Major Alana Schwermer, SFC Paul Wade and Specialist Rich Stowell, I’ll have plenty to write about over the next few days. Thanks as well to Lt.Col.Kurt A. Schlichter who got the the idea planted and nurtured it until the timing worked out.

This is a military mission that makes very little news because it is done so extraordinarily well. The great news is that success is being achieved in Kosovo. The not-so-good-news is that the incredible efforts and success of the American military here is not widely recognized or understood.
