“A Bill Without Tort Reform Isn’t Healthcare Reform, And I Won’t Support Such a Fraud On The Taxpayer.”

Thursday, August 20, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Senate and House Republicans need to make this point again and again. Americans understand that a huge driver of health care costs is the failure to cap pain and suffering damages. And voters resent the huge payouts to plaintiffs’ lawyers and from plaintiffs’ lawyers to Democrats.

Democrats are reeling because of all the bad stuff they have thrown into the various bills. Republicans should highlight the worst of the system’s ills Democrats have refused to fix because of fealty to special interests.

“There is no evidence that Axelrod directly profited from the group’s ads.”

Wednesday, August 19, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

This AP story completely –purposely?– misses the point. What matters is what the law prohibits, not whether David Axelrod “directly profited” from the ad buys.

The only question that matters is whether the law prohibits David Axelrod from negotiating health care deals with anyone sending or causing to be sent sums of money to his former firm while his former firm owes him millions of dollars.

The Alinskyite Congress

Wednesday, August 19, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Senior Democratic Congressmen Henry Waxman and Bart Stupak have sent an outrageous letter to Bruce Bodaken, Chairman and CEO of Blue Shield of California, which I will read at the start of today’s show, and link when it is available online. It demands a mountain of information on executive compensation as well as premium rates etc, all by September 4. This letter is a straightforward bit of bullying –an attempt by Waxman and Stupak to silence any segment of the private sector that might be inclined to fight back against the takeover of American medicine by the federal government. It is intended to make the health insurance industry fear opposing any part of the Obama-Pelosi scheme to remake American health care.

This is McCarthyism of the left, pure and simple, and another huge piece of evidence as to why the American people are right to be extremely concerned about the hard left lurch by the Obama-Pelosi Democrats and their tactics of intimidation.

UPDATE: Here’s the WaPo story on the letters. Here’s one example of the letters that went out.

“Sub Prime Health Care Reform” and the “Sub Prime Government Option”

Wednesday, August 19, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

An e-mail from Texas:

Hugh: I haven’t heard this term used by anyone else thus far but I think it might resonate with most Americans. That term is “Sub Prime Health Care Reform”. It’s where the government gives all the fruits of the American Dream because we are all entitled to it. I am a compassionate person so I am not insensitive to those whose circumstances require assistance. Ruining the best health care system in the world is not the solution. Just as ruining the global financial system was not the answer to GIVING people the (fruits of) the American Dream, a house (oh, and don’t forget the mortgage) they could not afford.

Wait until tens of millions get dumped into the Sub Prime Government Option created by the Sub Prime Health Care Reform. Barney and Chris will find a way to blame the GOP for the importation of Canadian style health care to the U.S.
