I am in D.C. at CPAC (co-sponsored by PJ Media) and just got finished being a guest on the a href=”http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=pagepage-id=115″”Washington Tea Party”/a panel a href=”http://michellemalkin.com/2009/03/02/in-case-you-missed-it/”hosted by Michelle Malkin,/a Kellyanne Conway, Mary Anne Marsh and Jeri Thompson. I talked about taxpayers going “John Galt” and the psychology of fear in response to the financial crisis. The audience was terrific and supportive and there was a great turn-out. Fred Thompson came on to talk about the stimulus and other issues. br /br /a href=”http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=videovideo-id=1452media-id=5101chapter-id=607″You can watch the show here/a–just click on the segment with my name.
Opportunities to win back voters have been handed to the Republican Party on a silver platter. (Also check out PJ Media's latest PJM Political radio show, which features extensive additional coverage from CPAC.)
How things might play out is chilling to contemplate.
Why the Democrats killed a reasonable GOP proposal that was ignored by the mainstream media.
Skyrocketing demand has been emptying the shelves of America's gun stores. Here's why.
Honor killings aren't simply domestic violence.
An appreciation of Steve Wozniak — co-founder of Apple Computer and one of high tech's most unusual characters.
The Senate minority leader offers a heavy dose of tough love to conservatives.
A new challenge to critics who slam the ticking time bomb argument for torture as unrealistic.
Barack Obama may be so devoted to peace that he might just start a war.
How the Democrats work to strip African-Americans of their patriotism.
The new bill will spend billions to adjust data to “prove” the fallacy that humans are responsible for global warming.
The curtain rises on the latest attempt to smear the state of Israel through historical lies.
CNBC a href=”http://www.cnbc.com/id/29406790″conducted a poll asking people /a if they thought they would be a winner or loser with Obama’s current proposed budget. The result? Last time I looked, 72% of the respondents (out of 15198) thought they would be losers. I would say it will be closer to 100% before this is all over.
The conclave is making the right noises about reform — but acknowledging what fundamentally ails the movement will be the key. (Also read Andrew Klavan: Conservatives, Create!)
With taxes being raised at both state and local levels, residents in California and New York will be hit hardest.
The true danger lies elsewhere.
In reading about Obama’s new em$634 billion /em health fund, a href=”http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/02/25/AR2009022502587_pf.html”I came across this:/abr /br /blockquoteThe budget figures also represent significant shifts in how the United States will pay for medical care.br /br /For example, experts have identified hospital readmissions — especially for elderly patients — as a sign of poor care and unnecessary expense. About 18 percent of Medicare patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of an original visit. The new approach would establish flat fees for the first hospitalization and 30 days of follow-up, sometimes done by separate facilities. Hospitals or clinics with high readmission rates could be paid less./blockquotebr /br /I am not sure what the details are but just from reading the above, how is punishing hospitals or clinics who re-admit sick patients by paying them less going to provide good care? It’s like the insurance programs that dock doctor’s pay the more patients they see–and reward them for seeing fewer. Many just see fewer, regardless of whether the patient is better or not. But maybe I am naive and good care isn’t the point. Maybe the point is to make a certain portion of the American population including the president feel good that all Americans have insurance, even if patients are left sitting outside the hospital door. br /br /Perhaps I have this wrong, maybe there is more to this “new approach” than I have heard about. Maybe….
