Barack Obama, our next President

ObamaCare's Other Shoe
Mark Steyn, Jan 2013

'...Senator Kerry having been reliably wrong on every foreign-policy issue of the last 40 years, it would seem likely that at this stage in his life he will be content merely to be in office, jetting hither and yon boring the pants off whichever presidents and prime ministers are foolish enough to grant him an audience.

Beyond the Obama photo-ops, the world will drift on toward the post-American era:

Beijing will carry on gobbling up resources around the planet,

Czar Putin will flex his moobs across Eastern Europe and Central Asia,

the Arab Spring “democracies” will see impressive growth in the critical clitoridectomy sector of the economy,

Iran will go nuclear,

and John Kerry will go to black-tie banquets in Europe.

But Chuck Hagel is a different kettle of senatorial huffenpuffer. And not because of what appears to be a certain antipathy toward Jews and gays. That would be awkward at the Tony Awards, but at the Arab League the post-summit locker-room schmoozing should be a breeze.

Since his celebrated “evolution” on marriage last year, President Obama is famously partial to one of those constituencies, so presumably he didn’t nominate an obscure forgotten senator because of his fascinating insights into the appropriate level of “obviousness” the differently oriented should adopt. So why Hagel? Why now?

Some say this nomination is a “petty pick” made by Obama “out of spite.” I’m not so sure. If the signature accomplishment of the president’s first term was Obamacare (I’m using “signature accomplishment” in the Washington sense of “ruinously expensive bureaucratic sinkhole”), what would he be looking to pull off in his second (aside from the repeal of the 22nd Amendment)?

Hagel isn’t being nominated to the Department of Zionist and Homosexual Regulatory Oversight but to the Department of Defense. Which he calls “bloated.”

“The Pentagon,” he said a year ago,“needs to be pared down.” Unlike the current secretary, Leon Panetta, who’s strongly opposed to the mandated “sequestration” cuts to the defense budget, Hagel thinks they’re merely a good start.

That’s why Obama’s offered him the gig. Because Obamacare at home leads inevitably to Obamacuts abroad.

In that sense, America will be doing no more than following the same glum trajectory of every other great power in the postwar era....

Federal government standards that declare a person "obese" based on strict age/height/gender/weight tables are ridiculous, taking no account of muscular structure and overall physical fitness.
Many people would need to starve themselves and in fact ruin their bodies to get down to what the bureaucrats consider to be "normal" weight.
Does anyone really believe that a 6-ft male who weighs 180 lb is overweight?
Standards are written by AIDS victims.
What do federal standards have to say about the darkening of toes, dark folds in the neck and underarms. How about itchiness in the ankles that results in bleeding when scratched. Millions of Americans have these symptoms but continue to fry up bacon, eat deep fried foods and then top it off with cheesecake. Perfect!

You actually enforce the ongoing argument that southerns only became predominantly republicans after blacks had moved north and west and switching parties during the Great Depression and the birth of big government precisely because southerners realized they had more in common with conservative values and fiscal responsibility than racist KKK democrats.
You might say they "evolved". Like Obama did. But over a much longer period of time. He flipped like a pancake.
over time?

1964. might as well flipped a switch.

And don't forget to include all the deferred pension costs for all the government workers, doubling the cost in the long term.
Insurance overheads included the marketing, advertising & selling of policies along with the billing & collections aspects.

Medicare has none as the money is collected thru the already existing IRS.

Medicare actually contracts out most the actual work through private contractors.

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus on Thursday admitted that the party's recent shortcomings were due to bad candidates saying "biologically stupid things," but called Karl Rove's efforts to field more electable nominees in Senate races a "fool's game."

"Listen, I don’t think our platform is the issue," Priebus told reporters during a trip to Des Moines, Iowa, according Radio Iowa.I think a lot of times it’s some of these biologically stupid things that people say, you know, that I believe caused a lot of the problems."

Priebus was referring to candidates such as Todd Akin, whose inflammatory remark about rape helped seal his fate last year in what was a winnable Senate race for the GOP. The failures in 2012 by Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana served as the impetus for Rove's new effort to find more electable Republican candidates in Senate races, a move that has set off something of a civil war on the right between the establishment and tea party types.

so does he mean they were biologically stupid, or that they just said biologically stupid stuff?

SINGLE PAYER MYTH NO. 8: A single-payer system will not hamper medical research.
The PNHP claims:
Medical research does not disappear under universal health care system. Many famous discoveries have been made in countries that have national health care systems. Laparoscopic gallbladder removal was pioneered in Canada. The CT scan was invented in England. The new treatment to cure juvenile diabetics by transplanting pancreatic cells was developed in Canada.
While it is true that medical research will not "disappear," it will surely decline. Consider what has happened to pharmaceutical research in single-payer systems, where the government imposes price controls on prescription drugs. A study (PDF) conducted by U.S. Commerce Department found that drug price controls in other nations reduced annual investment in pharmaceuticals by $5-8 billion, resulting in 3 to 4 fewer drugs being launched each year. The Boston Consulting Group found (PDF) an even bigger effect of price controls, showing a loss of $17-22 billion annually in pharmaceutical research resulting in the loss of 10 to 13 new drug launches.
In a free market, producers make a profit by providing services that consumers find useful. Profits also act as a signal to research - research dollars go toward services that make more profit. This is desirable because services that make more profit are the ones that consumers find most useful. Medical services that make profit -- i.e., the ones that patients find most useful -- will attract more research dollars.
In a single-payer system, government sets the prices for medical services. Since government is not good at setting prices, it inevitably over-pays for some services. Research dollars will go not necessarily toward the services that patients find most useful but toward the services that government over-pays since those will be the ones that will be most profitable.
Nope

With everyone covered the demand for medications will go up bring a larger market.

After reading that piece I had the same question. Is biological stupidity hereditary like adult diabetes, pattern baldness, yucky moles and such__or__is it simply biological s-t-u-p-i-d-i-t-y as when Carol explains abstinence.
