John Stossel Pulverizes Obamacare

Investigative reporter John Stossel is known for presenting the facts and digging for veracity. He does a great job here of telling the truth about socialized health care. Innovation would stop.

Pelosicare Unveiled, Sortof.

Nancy Pelosi grandly presented her House of Representatives’ health care bill this morning, and- as expected, it’s full of booby traps for all.

“Doc Fix” Fails: 13 Dems Join Republicans In Shooting It Down

A huge scam got squelched today; this year’s version of the Medicare “Doc Fix”. Democrats wanted to shift 10 years of Medicare payments to doctors– a whopping $250 BILLION DOLLARS.
