Why Obamacare’s Death Panel Debate Won’t Die
August 14, 2013
The debate over the nefarious "death panel" is back.
Controversy over Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board, or IPAB – the cost-controlling group derided by critics as a veiled bureaucratic cudgel to ration care – has heated up in recent weeks. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman and presidential candidate Howard Dean has called for the panel to be abolished. Dean, a physician and former Vermont governor who now advises a Washington lobbying firm, wrote in The Wall Street Journal July 28 that "getting rid of the IPAB is something Democrats and Republicans ought to agree on."
Loathed by conservatives, some Democrats and health-care providers, the panel was set up as part of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, to suggest ways to reduce costs within Medicare. While none of the panel's recommendations are binding without Congressional review, that hasn’t quelled critics.
http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Columns/2013/08...
and

"On the major cost-cutting policies proposed by IPAB, Congress would have the power to accept or reject IPAB suggestions, so the popular idea that the panel would unilaterally ration care is false."

guess palin can admit she got it wrong.

US strike against Syria 'as early as Thursday': NBC http://www.cnbc.com/id/100988767

Our warmonger is at it again. Obama once again bypasses Congress. Where is the outrage from our far left liberals on here? Would they be in hiding? I remember them calling President Bush a warmonger and calling for impeachment. But silence from them now.

Sen. McCain: Doing Nothing in Syria Not an Option:

Doing nothing in Syria is not an option, Sen. John McCain warns.

The Republican senator from Arizona told The Hill delays in military action against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime essentially gives it a "green light" for continued attacks in the war-torn country.

"When we do nothing, not only do they have a green light, but this gives a green light to brutal dictators all over the world they can do the same thing," McCain said

John McCain and Lindsey Graham on Syria:‘Now is the time for decisive actions’:

Concerning the issuance of a global terror threat and the closing of nearly two dozen embassies, Graham said of President Obama,“I appreciate what the administration is doing. They’re taking the right approach to this.”

Lindsey Graham compares himself to Reagan, will go to Egypt with John McCain

Their is also a grassroots campaign, DefeatLindseyGraham, which has been established to help remove the “not-so-conservative” Graham with a true small government conservative.

Carolina Conservative Union Chairman, Bruce Carroll, joined us this past Saturday on Dispatch Radio (Listen below) to talk about the Senator and the problems with his voting record and views on major issues of the day.

In addition, Carroll gave his perspective on the Graham challengers and the “word on the ground” in South Carolina saying that people are really “ticked off at him” and that he is in real

Guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetters
Politically Liberal, a guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetter is often beyond liberal and nearly to the point of irrationality.
Typically the guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetter believes that a free ride can be provided to everyone, regardless of their motivation to work, create, innovate or to even wipe their own ass without help from the government.
Usually these guilt-ridden-whiney-assed-bed wetters love to "Help the poor" but always using resources obtained from others.
Statistically proven to give less of their own income to charity than the average conservatives.
Often white, often college educated and usually feels a misplaced sense of guilt at their own existence.
Normally dislikes the United States or any other place/people associated with freedom of thought, free markets or that horrid capitalistic system established in the Western World.

well if the 47% of moochers voted for obama how did he get to winning the election by over 51%.....LMAO!

The 2012 presidential election has obviously come and gone, but before we move on entirely, there's a little tidbit of statistical trivia that struck me as interesting -- and chart worthy.

Bloomberg reports today that, thanks to some provisional ballots that have now been counted in New York City, President Obama's popular-vote total is up to 51.06%. That wouldn't be especially interesting, were it not for the fact that Obama is the first presidential candidate since Dwight Eisenhower to top 51% twice.

In fact, in American history, this is a feat that's only been pulled off by six presidents: Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, William McKinley, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and now, Barack Obama.

In case you're wondering if Reagan made the cut, he came close, but ended up with 50.7% in 1980

LMAO!

Fox News Poll: Phony scandals? Not to voters
August 08, 2013
Benghazi. Snooping on reporters. The IRS and NSA. The White House dismisses them as phony and fake scandals. Americans do not.
A Fox News national poll released Thursday finds that 78 percent of voters think the questions over the administration’s handling of the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi should be taken seriously. Just 17 percent call it a phony scandal.
The attack, on the anniversary of September 11, killed four Americans -- including the U.S. ambassador.
Meanwhile, 69 percent of voters say the National Security Agency’s electronic surveillance of everyday Americans is serious, while 26 percent call that a fake scandal.
By a margin of 59-31 percent, voters are also more likely to view the seizure of reporters’ phone records by the Justice Department as serious rather than phony.
And while the White House sees a Congressional investigation of the IRS targeting of conservative groups as a “distraction,” 59 percent of voters take it seriously. Some 33 percent agree with the administration that it’s fake.
In each of the four situations, voters across the partisan spectrum -- Republicans, independents and Democrats -- are more likely to say the situation should be taken seriously.

"there's no doubt about how mad Republicans are about Benghazi. 41% say they consider this to be the biggest political scandal in American history to only 43% who disagree with that sentiment."

"One interesting thing about the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history is that 39% of them don't actually know where it is. 10% think it's in Egypt, 9% in Iran, 6% in Cuba, 5% in Syria, 4% in Iraq, and 1% each in North Korea and Liberia with 4% not willing to venture a guess."

Right-Wing Media Push New Benghazi Myths Ahead Of Hearings

Right-wing media are using a congressional hearing to push new myths about the Obama administration's response to the September 11, 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, these myths are discredited by previous congressional reports and testimony, which show that the politicized nature of the hearings come from right-wing media and Congressional Republicans, that the military could not have rescued personnel from the second attack, that the administration was in constant communication at all levels during the attacks, and that the intelligence community believed there was a link to an anti-Islam video at the time of the attacks

Lawyers Representing The "Whistleblowers" In Hearings Are Long-Time GOP Activists With History Of Pushing Discredited Claims. The lawyers claiming to represent some of the witnesses at the Benghazi hearing, Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova, are long-time Republicans known for pushing false claims in the media and for having conflicts of interest in their professional work. They have both served as advisors to Republican candidates and donated thousands of dollars to GOP candidates and causes, and have been criticized for a conflict of interest for serving in a dual role in separate Justice Department investigations and for dropping "the air of impartiality, non-partisanship, and professionalism required" by their roles as leaders of a congressional investigation.[Media Matters, 4/30/13; 5/6/13]

I also believe Members of Congress have an obligation to actually investigate claims before coming to conclusions and making public accusations. Unfortunately, House Republicans have taken the opposite approach. They issued a partisan report with reckless and false accusations against the former Secretary of State, they have completely concealed Mr. Thompson from Democratic Committee Members, and they have failed to make even basic inquiries to the Intelligence Community, the Defense Department, or the State Department to vet specific allegations. Instead, they have leaked snippets of interview transcripts to national media outlets in a selective and distorted manner to drum up publicity for their hearing. This is investigation by press release and does a disservice to our common goal of ensuring that our diplomatic corps serving overseas has the best protection possible to do its critical work.[House Oversight Committee, 5/6/13]

Fox Military Analyst Keane: CIA Base Was Evacuated Before Special Operations Force Could Reach Them. On Fox & Friends, Fox News military analyst retired Gen. Jack Keane responded to guest host Eric Bolling's claim that the Obama administration "did not call on the only response team that may have been able to intervene during the attack" by pointing out that "the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed":

KEANE: Here's what did happen. The national security apparatus, at the request of General Hamm, who's the commander of AFRICOM -- and he's had responsibility from a security aspect to respond to this crisis -- our national mission response force, our most classified force on the highest state of readiness, was alerted and moved from the United States to Sigonella [Naval Air Station in Italy], and they bring with them their own aircraft, their own helicopters and C-17s. Another classified special operations force was moved out of Central Europe to Sigonella as well. The fact of the matter was the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed.[Fox News, Fox & Friends, 11/2/12 via Media Matters]

MYTH: Clinton Never Spoke To Obama On Night Of The Attacks
Ingraham: "We Know That The Secretary Of State Had Not A Single Conversation With The Commander In Chief." During an interview with Republican Congressman Peter King on her radio show, Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham claimed "[w]e know that the Secretary of State had not a single conversation with the Commander in Chief. Not one during this attack":

INGRAHAM: We know that the Secretary of State had not a single conversation with the Commander in Chief. Not one during this attack. Not one conversation? That just seems bizarre to me. I mean that's just one point, but that's a pretty darn good question. Why?

KING: Absolutely, it's an excellent question, and to me it's one that, it's unfortunate that it even has to be asked. I mean you'd think they would have been on the phone continually.

FACT: Croatian Force Could Not Have Arrived Until After The Attack Was Over
Accountability Review Board: "There Simply Was Not Enough Time" For "Military Assets To Have Made A Difference." The Accountability Review Board, an independent group tasked with investigating the attacks, found that the "interagency response was timely and appropriate" but that there was not enough time for "armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference":

The interagency response was timely and appropriate, but there simply was not enough time given the speed of the attacks for armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference. Senior-level interagency discussions were underway soon after Washington received initial word of the attacks and continued through the night. The Board found no evidence of any undue delays in decision making or denial of support from Washington or from the military combatant commanders. Quite the contrary: the safe evacuation of all U.S. government personnel from Benghazi twelve hours after the initial attack and subsequently to Ramstein Air Force Base was the result of exceptional U.S. government coordination and military response and helped save the lives of two severely wounded Americans.[Accountability Review Board, accessed 5/7/13]
