15 seconds or your entire life

You can consider this the post that Ezra didn’t write, I suppose, since it’s taken from a cute and interesting post of his about cell phone companies and extending it to the health care reform debate. The twinkly Ezra post is this interesting one about one of those mild irritants…

I still don’t have a great feeling about this

Yesterday, Ezra posted the Obama administration’s eight point checklist for what health care reform should do for you. And here they are. See if you can spot what’s missing. * No Discrimination for Pre-Existing Conditions: Insurance companies will be prohibited from refusing you coverage because of your medical history. *…

We tried to save the lede, but it was underinsured and couldn’t afford the treatment

I’m on a hair trigger these days about health care reform, which is why I was all ready to heap mountains of derision on Obama’s personal physician when I read this headline: Obama’s former doctor critical of White House health care plan Agh! I thought. Another AMA jackass more concerned…

People of the 5th Congressional district in NC, please boot embarrassment Virginia Foxx out

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC5) is a stain on the reputation of my state. She continues to belch out the most ignorant garbage on the floor of the House. Yesterday she decided to weigh in on the health care reform debate with this doozy. Keyboard protection on. Rep. Foxx: The Republican…

A little more enthusiasm couldn’t hurt

If you want to depress yourself this morning—and hey, being a political blog reader means you’re not against the idea—please compare and contrast this interview with Nancy Pelosi about health care reform and this write-up of Obama’s press conference. Obama’s lack of enthusiasm on this issue is depressing on a…

Randall Terry: predicts ‘random acts of violence’ ahead over health care legislation

Womb control advocate Randall Terry was really working hard to rachet up the level of crazy to stratospheric heights at his latest presser, this one regarding health care reform legislation. In fact, he has developed ESP — if the bill isn't rejected he sees violence ahead. Not just any random…

Why Democrats should be very afraid

Ezra has some of the text up of remarks Obama made on a conference call with progressive bloggers, and if you’re paranoid about health care reform being whittled down to meaninglessness due to congressional addiction to lobbyists’ sweet nothings, I can’t say his remarks were especially comforting. I am less…
