Farts. Betrayed. Ted.

Healthcare Paid for With Unicorn Farts

There will be many words from many people about much of the President’s State of the Union speech from last night.

I will only focus on one line, which distinctly highlights again just how out to lunch the man is when it comes to real healthcare reforms in this country.

During his speech the President said this:

“We’ll bring down costs by changing the way our government pays for Medicare, because our medical bills shouldn’t be based on the number of tests ordered or days spent in the hospital – they should be based on the quality of care that our seniors receive.”

In other words, we should stop paying for tests based on the number performed and we should stop paying for hospitals based on the number of days in which a patient stays in the hospital. Instead, we should pay based on the quality of care given, which I guess means if suddenly your stool sample turns to gold, we’ll charge more.

His approach makes no sense. Healthcare cannot be paid for based on quality of care without introducing subjective standards that will themselves drive up the costs of healthcare. He might as well claim he does not want to pay for healthcare at all or, at best, will cover the costs with unicorn farts.

The President’s speech was a defense of big government.

He started his speech referencing John F. Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy said, “ask not what your country can do for youask what you can do for your country.”

Barack Obama now only wants to tell us what Uncle Sam will do for us so that we need do nothing for ourselves. If he is successful we will each be too dependent on the federal government to set our own course in life. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

Obama’s State of the Union boils down to two words: ‘Trust Me’

David Freddoso – Obama’s State of the Union boils down to two words: ‘Trust Me’

Everything Obama says is subject to interpretation. This was a clever speech, in that it all hinges on the president’s personal credibility, which is higher than his job approval. But it’s also a dangerous speech, because it all hinges on the president’s personal credibility, which is also the last political asset in his account.

Byron York – Obama: You liked my speech? Please send money.

About an hour after the end of his State of the Union address, in which he called for an end to the partisan conflict that has plagued his first year in office, President Obama sent out a political fundraising appeal through his permanent campaign organization, Organizing for America.

Chris Stirewalt – Tim Tebow’s ad has Left tangled in their knickers

While the gross-out ads from Dockers, Bud Light and CareerBuilder.com will break some meaningless boundaries by bringing “Old School”-style humor (“We’re streaking!”) to Family Hour television, the real Super Bowl controversy is over the ad staring former University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

Timothy P. Carney – Obama talk on lobbyists belies a more complex relationship

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama referred to last week’s Supreme Court decision striking down restrictions on corporate political advertisements, saying, “I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests.”

The comment jibes with Obama’s populist tone, but it clashes with his actual fundraising numbers. Obama, for instance, raised $14.8 million from Wall Street (the “Securities and Investment” industry as the Center for Responsive Politics defines it) — more than any politician in history. Obama’s $995,000 from employees and executives at investment bank giant Goldman Sachs is the most a politician has raised from a single company since the 2001 campaign finance reform law.

Similarly, Obama set the record for raising money from the health insurance industry ($1.4 million) and the pharmaceutical industry ($2.1 million).

Pleading with skeptical Americans to “take another look” at health care reform, President Obama tried turning a corner on his struggling administration with a series of modest initiatives centered on economic recovery.

Obama’s first State of the Union address confronted his own political limitations and waning public support, while calling on Congress and the public to rally behind him, saying “Our union is strong. We do not give up, we do not quit.”
