Live Stream of Healthcare Debate

I’ve had several emails today asking if I knew where to get a live stream of the healthcare debate. Hit play below, where this debate is happening live (and the vote will be covered as well). You can watch the Democrats “make history” there, changing America from being a leader to being a follower.

Democrats: Making Up the Rules as They Go Along

Honestly, the only surprise here is that they actually are finally starting to admit that this is how they operate.  Shameful!

Boehner Asks for “Call of the Roll”

There’s little doubt Pelosi will actually let it happen, but John Boehner has formally asked that there be a “Call of the Roll.”  Typically, rolls are taken electronically unless the Speaker requests that the votes be taken by a “Call of the Roll.” In that case, the Clerk would call each member alphabetically by surname and give their vote.

It is a shame that Pelosi won’t even consider doing this. It would make fantastic fodder in the elections to show each member that votes yes verbally giving their votes. I’m guessing that many that are voting yes on this bill are doing so with a great deal of shame (not to mention a lot of whip-marks on their backs from the Democrat leadership).

The “Rich” are So Undertaxed

Great commentary over at the Washington Times by Michael Whalen.  He owns properties under Subchapter S, and thus falls into the “rich” category.  Using 2008 numbers, he lists out a handful of the taxes he pays on a 100-room (limited service) hotel in Iowa. It is amazing how fast it adds up. Hard data makes it clear how ignorant a lot of the public is when it comes to taxation.

I’m still finding it amazing how many people don’t even realize how much they are taxed on a normal basis. Most people think of taxes and they think of the ones that are out in the open (income tax and sales tax). A lot of people I talk to in daily life don’t remember that they pay property taxes (it is hidden in escrow on their mortgage or imbedded in their rent payments). Many don’t even take the time to look at their paycheck and see the obscene amount of money put into Social Security and Medicare (let alone the fact most don’t realize that their employer matches). It is nearly impossible to explain to people how taxes “trickle down” from the top (through raised product and service prices).

Howard Stern: Democrats are Communists

Wow, you’re in big trouble when left-of-center Howard Stern calls you Communist.
