Just as the initial benefits of our bedraggled, hard-won health-care reform act are kicking in, the nation’s greedy health insurance companies are acting like, well, greedy insurance companies—proving again how much we really needed the public option that they helped demolish.
First off, a number of companies simply stopped offering “child-only” policies, especially for ailing kids with pre-existing conditions. That’s because one of the great benefits of the new law that just went into effect would make it mandatory for companies to insure those kids.

Fortunately, according to the New York Times, …

This Sunday, one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People will address this year’s senior class at Gonzaga College High School in Washington. For Sister Carol Keehan, here’s a suggestion for an inspiring topic: “How to make it big.”

As president of the Catholic Health Association (CHA), the largest group of not-for-profit health care facilities in the country, Sister Carol, as she’s called, delivered an 11th-hour endorsement of President Obama’s health care reform bill. Herseal of approval appeared to give the legislation a Catholic blessing. It even earned Sister Carol one …

Who in his right mind would be against health insurance for every child in Illinois?
Certainly none of the politicians, health care providers, labor unions and special interests that in 2005 so enthusiastically bought into then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s All Kids program. Certainly not tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, the major beneficiaries of the program. From Citizen Action/Illinois to the Illinois Hospital Association, from the Chicago Teachers Union to the Peruvian Cultural Center, they all hailed it as some kind of nirvana.

They were wrong. Now, five years later, All Kids has …

Touchy-Touchy Capitol Fax. Part I.
Understand that Dr. Eric Whitaker, one of President Obama’s best friends, was not subpoenaed. Just his emails and medical records from the Illinois of Public Health which he ran under Rod Blagojevich. The pro-Squid, pro-Obama Capitol Fax objects to the headline by the Sun-Times: One of Obama’s Closest Friends Part of Federal Probe. Not that the headline says they were subpoenaed but it’s too vague. Again: Whitaker wasn’t subpoenaed but his papers were.

And, tsks-tsks Capitol Fax it takes to the 7th paragraph for the …

The anger is genuine and needs no mongering. Democrats and Republicans detest the Obama Care Bill. I am a Democrat and my neighbors are Democrats. We do not like this force fed boondoggle any more than a poor goose likes having corn forced down its throat.

Ironically, the very same band of nitwits in public life who hate smoking, fat kids, fois gras and American History crafted the Obama Care Legislation and stand poised to make America go the way of Greece, Ireland and Portugal once the Obama …

Convicted felon Robert Creamer, who wrote the blueprint for the Democrats’ health care reform campaign, attended official health care signing celebrations in Washington, D.C. yesterday. He was joined by numerous activists and “community organizers” who have had their sights set on nationalizing health care and have finally achieved it. Creamer’s spouse, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, was one of the bill’s most vociferous proponents.
