Gay critics say 'too little, too late' from Obama

CNN reports that Obama's attempt to buy off gay activists with federal benefits, after the White House compared them to pedophiles in a legal brief opposing gay marriage, is "too little, too late."

CNN reports in part:

President Obama's decision to grant some benefits to the same-sex partners of federal employees is seen by some as his attempt to extend an olive branch to the gay and lesbian community, but critics say it's "too little, too late."

Gay Democrat donors boycotting DNC bash over Obama admin gay bashing brief

Outraged over a legal brief filed by the Obama administration comparing gay and lesbian Americans to pedophiles and people committing incest, gay and lesbian donors to the Democrat Party are pulling their support of a June 25 Democrat National Committee fundraiser with Vice-President Joe Biden aimed at the LBGT community.

ABC News reports former Clinton advisor David Mixner has withdrawn from the event, blasting the Obama brief as a "sickening document" that "could have been written by the Rev. Pat Robertson."

Government takeover of health care to cost $1 trillion over 9 years - for just one part

The Congressional Budget Office released a report Monday outlining the projected costs of just part of the Democrat plan for a government takeover of the nation's health care system, and it isn't pretty.

Initial estimates have taxpayers forking over $1.07 trillion dollars between 2010 and 2019 for just part of the Democrat plan.  Costs will escalate if Congress expands government-run insurance plans, as Obama promises.

Somewhere Ken Lay is smiling: Report likely shows Obama healthcare takeover unaffordable. Congress to simply change the report.

In a move that would have made Ken Lay proud, Democrat congressional leaders are expected to deal with the huge price tag of Barack Obama's government takeover of health care in a unique way -- ditching the estimates prepared by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office and replacing them with the nunbers prepared by the politically-appointed White House Office of Management and Budget.
