National Right to Life Committee Does Not Support Casey Compromise Language in the Health Care Bill

"NRLC Legislative Director Douglas Johnson and Senior Legislative Counsel Susan T. Muskett wrote, in part:

We believe that your proposed language in no way improves the highly objectionable provisions of the Reid bill that authorize subsidies for health plans that cover elective abortion, and that authorize federal mandates for private health plans to cover elective abortion.

...The Reid bill, as modified by your proposal, would effectively enshrine in federal law the doctrine that elective abortion is routine health care, and then deign to allow individual citizens to declare themselves to be conscientious objectors. This is a political fig leaf for a pro-abortion policy – and a cellophane fig leaf, at that."

Public Doesn't Like Healthcare Bill, So Democrats Must Buy Votes - Mary Kate Cary (usnews.com)

On Good Morning America this morning, Sen. John McCain was asked why Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was trading so much money for so few votes: "Because they [Senate Democrats] haven't got the American public ... 60 percent of the American people are against this. They want it stopped and they certainly—as they find out more about this unsavory process we've been through, the Cornhusker Kickback, the Louisiana Purchase, the Florida FlimFlam and all of the other kinds of dealing that went on—they'll find it very distasteful.

Fr. West's Catholic Blog

"What’s wrong with the health care bill from a Catholic perspective? In short, it funds abortion. It does not sufficiently protect the conscience rights of health care workers who refuse to have anything to do with abortion, euthanasia, human cloning or destructive embryonic stem cell research. It rations health care to the sick and the elderly, and the massive government takeover is a violation of a basic principle of Catholic social teaching - the principle of subsidiarity." visit:

race42008.com » Blog Archive » Will Senator Nelson Cave On Killing The Unborn?

On Nelson caving the answer has alwaye been "OF COURSE!" It was only a matter of price.
Ben Nelson will support the final Senate bill being brought forth by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Nelson fought for an abortion compromise in the bill; unfortunately for his efforts, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has stated its opposition to the compromise.
Obviously, the USCCB has a limited impact on any bill; however, it does provide a framework from which to base one’s pro-life support on. If a compromise is not supported by the USCCB, that definitively shows the final bill will not be pro-life in nature. Good for the Church in standing for its principles, especially given how much of the nation’s medical care is provided by the Catholic Church: “615 Catholic hospitals account for 12.5% of community hospitals in the United States, and over 15.5% of all U.S. hospital admissions."

Steele: Dems Are 'Ramming This Government-Run Health Care Program Through Congress' | TPM LiveWire

"Today we learned that Harry Reid's backroom deals and closed-door meetings have led to a health care bill that will cost American taxpayers nearly a trillion dollars. And get this: Harry Reid and the Democrats are celebrating. While they claim victory, the American people will be faced with higher taxes, increased premiums and cuts to Medicare. They are ramming this government-run health care program through Congress - when Americans don't want it, and our country can't afford it." Visit:

Doctor and U.S. Senator Tom Coburn on Health Care

Who knowa more about health care? Physicians or politicians who don't even read the bills they vote for? Here are few facts from physician-Senator Tom Coburn. Did the senate listen to the facts bofore they voted in government controlled health care? Nope. Elitists know best. Doctor Coburn: “Many of the problems we face today in health care, such as cost and lack of choice and access to quality care, are the consequence of government interference. These problems will only get worse if Congress spends $2.5 trillion on legislation to put the government in charge of more of our health care decisions,” Dr. Coburn said.

Patients in government run health plans have fewer options and lower quality of care:

• Medicare denies medical claims at twice the rate of some of the largest private insurers.
• Nearly one in three (29 percent) Medicare beneficiaries who were looking for a primary care doctor had a problem finding one to treat them, according to a June 2008 Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) survey.
• Forty percent of physicians refuse to accept Medicaid patients. Visit:.: United States Senator Tom Coburn :: Press Room :.

Unconscionable Math « Taunter Media (Rescission)

This is an interesting article but the author seems to be drawing all the wrong conclusions. It gives readers an indication of how insurance companies work, but to conclude the socialist agenda that is driving health care would be more benevolent is a huge error. Government run Medicare denies a greater percentage of claims than the leading health insurance companies. (More on this later). And let's not forget the state run Oregon Health Plan that denies care yet offers to pay for assisted suicide. More on Oregon later.
This deals with rescission.
"If the top 5% is the absolute largest population for whom rescission would make sense, the probability of having your policy cancelled given that you have filed a claim is fully 10% (0.5% rescission/5.0% of the population). If you take the LA Times estimate that $300mm was saved by abrogating 20,000 policies in California ($15,000/policy), you are somewhere in the 15% zone.. If... rescission is targeted toward ...bankrupting cases..with over $35,000 of annual claims... then the probability of having your policy torn up given a massively expensive condition is pushing 50%." I get it, the author thinks insurance companies are evil.But will the government health care save us? Don't hold your breath. Visit: Unconscionable Math « Taunter Media:

Aetna will Terminate Medicare Advantage Plans

"Health insurance plans that for years offered enhanced Medicare coverage for 11 million Americans age 65 and older are under some strain.
Aetna Inc. has advised 8,500 area customers that it will terminate two of its Medicare Advantage plans at the end of this year. Independence Blue Cross has given the same notices to 44,000 individual subscribers who depend on four plans it offers.
Other insurers in other markets are also making cuts.
Meanwhile, area offices for the aging are being swamped with calls as worried senior citizens try to figure out whether their plans are affected.
'People are calling in tears,' said Kim Andrews, director of a program with the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging that helps the elderly sort out insurance options." Visit: ANATP:

Here John McCain criticizes AARP for doing what is in AARP's best interest, not senior citizens best interest.

Breitbart.tv » McCain Urges Arizona Senior Citizens to Tear Up AARP Cards
Senators voted 58-42 to reject an amendment by Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona that would have prevented more than $400 billion of Medicare funds from being raided to fund the health care bill. What did our two Senators do? Did they vote to eliminate the $400 billion cuts in Medicare? Not on your life! Our seniors should realize, it is their lives that are in jeopardy. Sure sounds like rationing of health care to me.

Special Report Shows ‘Handwriting On The Wall’ For Failing Abortion Industry

"“We now have an accurate listing of every open abortion clinic in the country,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “In 1991, it was estimated that there were nearly 2,200 abortion clinics in the country, today there are just 713. The pro-life movement has made significant strides exposing and closing abortion clinics and shifting public opinion toward the pro-life position. This has resulted in lower abortion rates.”
Operation Rescue has listed all abortion clinics along with a map showing their locations. The information shows a general relationship between access to abortion clinics and the abortion rate in each state. With few exceptions, the states with greater access to abortion clinics have higher abortion rates." Visit: Special Report Shows ‘Handwriting On The Wall’ For Failing Abortion Industry

Huckabee's Political Aspirations Killed?l

"There is no need to tiptoe gingerly around this topic: Maurice Clemmons, who was shot and killed as authorities tried to apprehend him for the shooting deaths of four Washington police officers -- is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's Willie Horton.
Horton, you might recall, is the convicted killer who raped a woman while wrongly released as part of a prison furlough program supported by former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis -- thus helping to torpedo the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee's bid for the White House. The Clemmons story likewise should kill any chance of Huckabee winning, should he run in 2012." Comments anyone? Visit:ShareThis:

Mikulski Healthcare Amendment with Abortion Loophole Passes 61-39 - Jill Stanek

"Mikulski healthcare amendment with abortion loophole passes 61-39
UDPATE, 12:23: Specifics on the Mikulski abortion loophole from a DC source:
Pro-life leaders opposed the amendment because it provides authority that could be used to mandate abortion coverage in private insurance plans. It specifies that anything classified as preventive care or screenings for women by the Health Resource and Services Administration would become a mandated covered service. Therefore, if HRSA recommended abortion as a preventive care, insurance plans would have to cover abortion.
Pro-life organizations advocated for simple language to ensure abortion would not be mandated, but no clarifying language was added." Visit: ShareThis: "Mikulski healthcare amendment with abortion loophole passes 61-39

Yaz and Yasmine Birth Control Pills Serious Side Effects Including Deaths

Lately I've seen numerous law firms advertize "Have you been hurt by Yaz or Yazmine?" I decided to look into it and found as one lawfirm website reported, "From the first quarter of 2004 through the third quarter of 2008, well over 50 reports of death among users of Yasmin and Yaz have been filed with FDA. These include numerous deaths with reported cardiac arrhythmia, cardiac arrest, intracardiac thrombus (blood clots in the heart), pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs), and stroke in women under 50 years of age. In fact, some of the deaths occurred in women as young as 17 years old. Significantly, reports of elevated potassium levels are frequently included among the symptoms of those suffering fatalities while using Yasmin or Yaz." This seems shockingly high compared to death rates from RU486. Reported death rates for RU486 worldwide in the first few years were about a dozen. How can 50 deaths in only 4 years be considered acceptable? One Canadian law firm has a class action suit in the works. The following link contains useful information about Yaz and Yazmine. It is to the website of a lawfirm. Inclulding this link does not imply that I endorse this lawfirm in any way. I merely want others to learn more about the problems associated with Yaz and Yasmine.

Rationing in the Reid Senate Health Care Bill - Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics

The Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics has an article about rationing in the Senate health care bill. Concerning price controls (Medicare)the Powell Center is concerned that, "The Reid bill includes the House provision that would effectively allow the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) to bar senior citizens from adding their own money, if they choose, to the government contribution to get private-fee-for-service Medicare Advantage (MA) plans less likely to ration life-saving treatment."
S.K.C.-Can anyone tell me what the purpose of such legislation is except to insure that the maximum number of senior citizens die from lack of treatment. This is the United States of America. Senior citizens just like anyone else should be allowed to spend their money as they wish. And if some are prudent enough to purchase supplemental health insurance so they will receive the care they need whether or not government programs provide it, more power to them. The Reid health care bill is undemocratic. For an excellent explaination of how the Reid Bill promotes rationing read the Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics blog Visit:

"“This is not funny, this is serious stuff!” intones a flock of furrow-browed politicos about that well-dressed couple who conned their way into a White House shindig. Yes and no, in that order, because some of us think this incident is more than a little funny and really not all that serious. “They could have smuggled a toxic substance in the guise of a perfume, or even an explosive!” someone exclaimed on MSN-Please-Take-Me-Seriously-BC. Well, okay, I suppose so; that might have happened in an “NCIS” episode; or was it “Loaded Weapon” or “The Naked Gun?” Can’t remember. At all events, my guess is that most Americans are more amused than upset."

Tax-Funded Abortions in Texas

"Austin, TX (LifeNews.com) -- Travis County officials in Austin, Texas are set to discuss, at a December 10 meeting, whether or not they will spend $450,000 to directly pay for abortions. The county has paid for abortions in prior budgets and the Texas Alliance for Life pro-life organization hopes to stop officials this time around
