Obamacare failed in Europe

Guillaume Vuillemey, a researcher at France's Institut Economique Molinari, and Philip Stevens, a researcher at Britain's International Policy Network write in today's Washington Examiner about how Obama's proposed government takeover of the health care system has worked in Europe.

Hint.  Not so well.

Obama backs what he called "the largest middle-class tax increase in history"

"I pledge that under my plan, no one making less than $250,000 a year will see any type of tax increase...Not income tax, not capital gains taxes, not any kind of tax." - Candidate Barack Obama in Dover, N.H., Sept. 12, 2008

Barack Obama, who won the presidential election promising absolutely no tax increase of any kind for the middle class, is now considering a new multi-billion dollar tax on employer-provided health care benefits -- the very proposal he attacked during the campaign as "the largest middle-class tax increase in history."

Obama Supreme Court nominee overruled by Supreme Court, again

In a victory for individual rights, the Supreme Court Monday announced it is throwing out a decision by Second Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who ruled the city of New Haven, Conn. could deny several firefighters promotions because the racially-neutral test they passed did not produce politically correct results, and it could theoretically result in lawsuits from special interest groups.

Who are 'the uninsured?'

Today's Washington Times editorial takes an eye-opening look into the Obama insinuation that America's 45 million uninsured are middle-class families who simply can't get health insurance unless Congress gives in to his proposed government takeover of health care.

Barr: Koh nomination is "truly dangerous" threat to Second Amendment rights

Writing in his blog for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2008 Libertarian presidential nominee Congressman Bob Barr lays out the case against Harold Koh, the Obama nominee to be State Department legal adviser.  Koh's nomination will be voted upon by the Senate today and if confirmed, he would be negotiating treaties for the United States and essentially be "America's lawyer" in the international legal community.

Research: Government-run health care MORE expensive than private care

Health care researcher Dr. Jeffrey H. Anderson, writing in today's Investor's Business Daily, reveals the troubling findings of research into government-run health care programs.  Despite Barack Obama's promises that his proposed government takeover of doctor's offices will somehow reduce costs, the facts show exactly the opposite is true.
