  • Georgia is the latest state to propose legislation questioning whether Barack Obama was born in the United States, alongside ten other states that are seeking more proof before his name is put on the 2012 ballot. The other states with pending bills include Arizona, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Connecticut, Indiana, Tennessee and Maine. The measure has failed this year in Montana. It may seem like kicking a dead horse but Obama brought this speculation on himself. All he had to do was present his birth certificate when it was requested. Anyone else who had nothing to hide would have.
  • Barack Obama finally conceded to offer some wiggle room with his overbearing, socialistic health care reform bill. His offer, available in 2014 instead of the intended 2017, would allow individual states to design their own health care programs contingent on the fact that they reach the requirements of the federal government. That concession holds as much opportunity as getting four $5 bills instead of two $10 bills in exchange for a $20 bill. Will each state also have to provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally (page 50/section 152)? Will each state have to allow the government real-time access to individuals' bank accounts with the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts (page 58 and 59)? Will each state be forced to subsidize their plan for all union members, union retirees and community organizations; organizations like ACORN (page 65/section 164)? Will each state force all doctors to be paid the same regardless of specialty, and does each state set all doctors’ fees, the way the federal government intends to (page 241 and 253)? Will each state be forced to ration cancer care according to the patient’s age (page 272/section 1145)? Will each state have to administer “End-of-life planning” seminars, or Death Counseling, every five years for those on Social Security (page 425, lines 4-12)? Will each state specify which doctors can exclusively write an end-of-life order (page 429, lines13-25)? When Barack Obama makes a vague, blanket concession to his health care law, with items like these on the bill, it allows you to see how absolutely worthless and disingenuous the action was.
The cited sections above are a false representation of the health care law and should not be taken seriously. I discovered this fact on 03/06/11 and want to point out that it should not have been used as a news source. See Day189 for details surrounding what is true and false from these sections.
  • A small victory today for House Republicans. Avoiding a government shutdown, the House passed emergency short-term legislation to cut federal spending by $4 billion. The bill passed 335 to 91, creating a two-week period of time for the White House and lawmakers to negotiate a follow-up bill to set spending levels through the September 30 end of the current budget year.
1,564.9 miles to go.
