House Dems say all uninsured will have health coverage

I’ll believe it when I see and read all of it.

How will it be paid for? How much will employers have to pay into it? How much will it cost Americans to be covered? Who will administer the program? What coverage options are there? Is it all one package or broken up into several, e.g., Medical, Prescription, Dental, Vision, etc.

And what about those who already are paying through the roof for their unaffordable plans? Why can’t they buy into the more affordable health care?

The natives are getting restless

When former President George W. Bush figures its safe to pile on President Obama, you know the people are restless.

Yes, everywhere you go in the United States today, you run up against worry and angst. Jobs are not coming back. For a while it was chic to spend less; now it’s just boring. The stock market gyrations are dizzying and depressing. They’re rioting in Iran, while Obama ponders what tone to take. On Capitol Hill, they’re sucking their thumbs.

Can we afford Obama’s health care plan?

One can’t help but think there is considerable danger in Barack Obama’s unswerving determination to alter the nation’s health care landscape at what may be a cost most Americans can’t even fathom.

The president’s zeal is impressive. It is the passion of a true believer who sees a country in which no one is without medical insurance as key to restoring the economy even as the national debt approaches unimaginable dimensions and some of his most ardent supporters are beginning to wonder how to pay for such an ambitious goal.

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets of Tehran in recent days to protest the seemingly dubious results of an election that returned hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power for a second term.

The American response to the protests has generated fresh controversy here. Some conservatives have criticized President Obama for not offering a forceful statement in support of the protesters.

Obama flip flops on transparency

During the campaign, candidate Barack Obama made unambiguous commitments to openness and transparency. But once in office, President Obama has been far more tentative about public disclosure, at times opting to continue Bush administration policies of withholding information.

Economy becoming a good news-bad news joke

Trying economic times have prompted many Americans to search the financial horizon for positive signs we may be pulling out of the recession. But sometimes what looks like good news can also be bad news. This week’s release of housing starts was just that, good news bearing potential hidden bad news between the lines. In May, housing starts jumped 17 percent above the year before, exceeding expectations in a housing market that seems to have bottomed out and which may soon start to produce rising home prices.

New law will turn gas-guzzlers into cash

Car shoppers could take advantage of government incentives worth up to $4,500 this summer to send their old gas guzzler to the scrap heap in favor of a more fuel-efficient new vehicle.

President Barack Obama is expected to sign into law the "cash for clunkers" program, which was approved by the Senate on Thursday. For owners of low-mileage models such as the 1994 Ford Bronco, 1998 Nissan Pathfinder or the 1995 Chevrolet Blazer, the plan could give them a reason to visit their local car dealer during an economic downturn.

War funds bill passes Congress, but…

The U.S. Congress on Thursday sent President Barack Obama a $106 billion bill to pay for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars after political sparring that could foreshadow tougher fights over Obama’s agenda.

The bill, delayed by disputes over quickly closing the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay and expanding support for the IMF, highlighted the difficulties Obama may face in Congress even though his fellow Democrats control both the Senate and House of Representatives.
