“Reviewing the Health Overhaul Bidding”

Monday, November 9, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Monday morning column from Clark Judge:

Reviewing the Health Overhaul Bidding
By Clark S. Judge, managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.

Let’s review the bidding now that Obama/Pelosicare has passed the House.

As reported here two weeks ago, according to one of the nation’s leading experts on the federal budget, former OBM deputy director and Hoover Institution economist John Cogan, by mid century without the president’s agenda, the federal spending including Medicare and Medicaid are on track to consume 34 percent of national income. [# More #]

With the president’s program, that number will jump to 60 percent. Cogan noted that the peak year for U.S. government spending as a percent of GDP was in World War II, when it hit 40 percent for one year. We are, as he said, entering uncharted economic and fiscal territory.

It doesn’t have to be this way. There are inexpensive, more effective health reform alternatives on the table.

The president points (correctly) to the need for greater competition among health insurance providers? But lack of competition is a result not of market failures but state government mandates. The answer isn’t a fabulously expensive public option. It is to legislate that an insurance plan that is approved in one state will be salable in all. Instantly you would solve the one-state-few-competitors issue. And you would introduce competition between the states. National competition would force states to determine which of their mandates is truly necessary and which is a payoff to special interests. Do the people of Massachusetts really need every health policy to include in vitro fertilization? No wonder they have among the nation’s highest insurance prices.

The president points (again correctly) to the pace of health care inflation generally. But as economist from Milton Friedman on have noted, health care inflation in the U.S. is a result of breaking the link between the payer of services and the receiver of services-and this, too, is a result of government policies, in this case tax policies. U.S. tax law heavily discriminates against those who buy health insurance or health care services on their own. The tax breaks for buying through your employer make other options prohibitively expensive. So level the playing field. Give individuals the same breaks that their places of work receive. The result would be instant pressure on all providers to increase productivity-and stagnating productivity is the central problem in our health system.

But the House has passed a bill that does nothing to reduce mandates (just the opposite, they’ll add a federal layer), nothing to create a national market for health insurance, and nothing to give individuals control over their own health plans. It does however mandate personal spending that can rise as high as 20 percent of income (see here: http://tinyurl.com/yggstf ).

Here is where it comes down. The House bill is built on the same social democratic model as Medicare. When that program was passed in 1966, the House Ways and Means Committee estimated that by 1990 it would cost $12 billion. The actual number was $107 billion (see here: http://tinyurl.com/yac7tg9 ). Before the current administration took office, among Washington’s great worries was that the program’s unfunded liability (now running over $74 trillion, multiple times larger than our deficit) would bankrupt the nation. So in what the president’s budget back in February termed “A New Era of Responsibility,” the House of Representatives proposes to layer on top of that program a new and vastly more expensive program.

We all have our favorite explanation for what has made the Democrats in Washington go mad. Power crazed ideology? As the president says, a chance like this comes along only once in a generation. Good thing, too. Otherwise we’d already be asking other countries for foreign aide. Or is it putting special interests before public interest? The public employee unions wouldn’t accept anything that would reduce the need for their members staffing state regulatory authorities. Pick your poison.

Whatever the reason, the consequences are serious.

Consider this: George Washington and Alexander Hamilton created in the United States government the world’s most credit worthy entity. With that legacy, we bought Louisiana, built the national roads and harbors that allowed the opening of the Midwest, won the Civil War, provided more national roads and waterways to support industrialization, and in the past century won World War I, World War II, and the Cold War, saving civilization not once but twice. And because we saved civilization, freedom has reached more of the world than ever before in history, and, according to the World Bank, the number of people living in extreme poverty around the globe is on track to fall to fifty percent of its 1990 level by 2015 (see: http://www.worldwatch.org/node/6269 ).

It is not too much to say that Congress’ coming health care votes will be not just about whether we reform America’s health care and health insurance markets foolishly or intelligently. They will also be about whether we preserve George Washington’s legacy for the generations to come.

Memo for Pete Sessions (and John Cornyn)

Monday, November 9, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My Washington Examiner column asks the leaders of the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee to use fundraising to send a message about the votes on Obamacare, and to use the votes on Obamacare to ignite fundraising for 2010.

If the party committees miss this obvious moment to staple the Obamacare vote onto the 20 most vulnerable House Democrats who voted for the Pelosi version of Obamacare, then the Club for Growth should step in and lead the charge. People will give generously to the campaigns against Democrats who voted for the House bill on Saturday night if they are guaranteed that the money will go to challengers in winnable races. Given the dozens of House Democrats from districts which John McCain either carried or came close to carrying, a target list of 20 from the 220 who voted for the bill should take about 10 minutes to develop, publish and organize a fund-raising push around.

Similarly, the NRCC (or the Club for Growth) could raise a lot of money if it was segregated into a fund to be given over to 2010 challengers of Senate Democrats who vote for cloture. If such a fund gets organized and underway right now, it could even help deter a Democrat or two from joining in the first cloture vote.

When tens of thousands of people travel to D.C. to try and stop Obamacare, you can be certain there are tens of thousands more who will contribute to war chests that are specifically set up to defeat the Democrats who made it happen.

The NRCC and the NRSC shouldn’t miss this moment, nor should they try to raise generic money. Ask for funds to defeat incumbents who have already voted the wrong way on Obamacare, and pledge that those funds will be turned over to primary winners, not deployed to favored insiders or GOP incumbents. Activists opposed to Obamacare want their energy and money to go into specific efforts to stop Obamacare. If the GOP Congressional leadership doesn’t seize the moment, you have to wonder if they will be able to use the momentum that has already been built against the Democratic majority.

The key is specificity: Against exactly which Democrats in which districts will the funds be used? Will the funds go exclusively to defeat Democrats up for election in 2010 who voted for cloture?

Creating Real Jobs: QuantumSphere and the Challenge of 2010

Saturday, November 7, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

As Congress shrugs off the stunning level of unemployment and busies itself with the next step in the job-destroying takeover of American medicine, it will do everyone a great bit of good –especially Members of Congress and their staffs– to spend three minutes this weekend watching this video.

QuantumSphere is seven years old, founded and operated by a University of California Irvine grad in Santa Ana, one of the country’s most impoverished cities, with capital he raised for himself. He employs 21 people in the invention and production of advanced materials and process chemistry used in a wide variety of products from batteries to industrial inks.

These are 21 jobs that didn’t exist seven years ago, with an upside that is almost unimaginable. A true jobs strategy would concentrate on letting the founder and CEO, Kevin Maloney, keep plowing his profits back into growing his company. Cutting the taxes he pays not only allows him to hire more people, it benefits the stressed city of Santa Ana and the distressed state of California. And the nano-materials products QSI produces powers productivity gains in other companies and industries.

That’s how jobs are really created and that’s how real GDP growth is achieved. The past year in D.C. has been an exercise in unicorn wishing done by 535 legislators and one president with almost zero experience in ever creating even one job.

Much more damage will be done before this Congress can be replanned and the president replaced in 2013. But Tuesday’s elections show that the country is very much aware of the disastrous course we are on and demonstrates that our votes can and will fix it in November 2010 and November 2012. While the thousands and thousands of Kevin Maloneys of the country do their best to stay in growth mode for the next three years, political activists need to do whatever they can to get resources to the pro-real growth candidates who will defeat incumbents who are simply ignorant of how an economy grows and with it a country’s prosperity and security.

This weekend it would help slow down the Democrat-led rush to cripple the economy with the vast new taxes and regulations of Obamacare by sending a message to the Democratic majorities who are destroying the jobs of the United States that real change is coming. The very best way to do that is by sending contributions to two Republicans running for two Senate seats held by Democrats. If Senate Democrats see contributions pouring into the campaign coffers of Republican candidates running in toss-up states and they see it against the backdrop of this past Tuesday’s votes in Virginia and New jersey, those who want to keep their jobs will pause, even if the funds are flowing into campaigns against their colleagues. They will know their turn is coming.

Congressman Mike Castle is running for the Delaware Senate seat previously held by Vice President Biden and for which the Vice President’s son, Beau Biden, will be campaigning. Castle is a very popular figure in Delaware, a former governor, and the front-runner in the polls. All he will need are resources to put that seat in the GOP column. Castle is center-right, with an American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 52%. You can contribute online here.

Former Congressman Pat Toomey is running for the Senate seat held presently by Arlen Specter. Specter may not survive the Democratic primary, but either way, Toomey will be matched up a hyper-liberal a year from now. Toomey is a conservative’s conservative –the former head of the Club for Growth. He is also an indefatigable campaigner. You can contribute online here.

To stop the country’s economic slide –and its foreign policy confusion– we need to elect both the center-right Castle and the conservative Toomey. If you are a conservative, you ought to contribute first to Castle, and if you are a moderate Republican, start with Toomey. Both men agree on cutting spending and restoring a tax policy that is growth oriented. Both oppose Obamacare. Each could use $25, $50, or $100 or more. Besides calling the congressmen and senators listed below to urge a no vote on Obamacare, take the 10 minutes and spend the $50, $100 0r $200 (or more) to fully fund the campaign ahead. Serious people can win next November, but they have to get funded now so that 15 months from now a new Congress appreciate of and not hostile to the QuantumSpheres of the world replaces the current wrecking crew.

Indiana’s Congressman Baron Hill Sells Out Indiana To Help Out Pelosi

Friday, November 6, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

According to Politico.com, Indiana Congressman Baron Hill signed on to support Obamacare this afternoon, despite the massive cuts to Medicare it includes, despite its destruction of thousands of jobs via higher taxes and the so-called public option, and despite the embedded rationing.

Hill’s district has gone back and forth between Democrat and Republican. it should decisively swing back to Republican, powered by senior citizens and everyone with health care insurance they presently have but which is now imperilled by Baron Hill and the Pelosi Democrats.
