The Free Market At Work

Bill Gross, managing director of the world’s largest bond fund and thus presumably someone who knows what he’s talking about, says the Republicans’ slash and burn plan will not, in fact, create jobs.  Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office (which is considered a non-partisan font of wisdom by Republicans when it agrees with them) demonstrates that the Republican budget plan will not control the deficit, either.  I’ll just wait for the mainstream media to get over their Weiner Feeding Frenzy (you see what I did there) and pay attention to this.


…crickets chirping…

Calling Them On It

Before we break our arms patting the Senate on the back over DADT repeal, watch Cong. Anthony Weiner (D-New York) put the Senate on notice to pass the 9-11 First Responders bill before the Christmas break.  I reiterate my position that any member of Congress, House or Senate, who refuses to not only vote for this bill but actively push for its passage is a cowardly douche-bag who deserves to be publicly flogged.  Opposing this bill for some sort of twisted procedural advantage is even worse!  MAN UP, SENATE!

A Good Point

Cong. Anthony Weiner points out that the health insurance industry’s dubious cost study actually offers yet another argument in favor of the public option.

Great White North, Eh?

Some information on the Evil Radical Communist Socialist Muslim Nazi Euthanizing Canadian Socialized Medicine Horror!

I will go out on a limb here and predict that anyone who reads this post but is getting all their information on healthcare reform from the Right Wing Howler Monkey Media Chorus will claim it is a lie, they know some Canadianists who were forced to undergo gay abortions, etc. etc.

Meanwhile, Cong. Anthony Weiner cleverly exposed GOP hypocrisy on the entire issue.
