He is also the president of the American Action Forum, a policy institute.


But........shocking that John McCain's former economic policy advisor (the guy who suggested a total freeze on all discretionary spending in response to the economic collapse of 2008 - and whose healthcare reform ideas came down to the nebulously defined "remake Medicare") is critical of the democratic health care reform proposals...

Holtz Eakin was also behind the policy proposals btw that led the WSJ and the NYT to both wonder if McCain was less of a fiscal conservative than Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama...

The bottom line: is his criticism comes down to ... "I don't believe you..."
And that's fine - but he should have the good sense to state it as such, rather than make it sound like his opinion is an empirical fact of mathematics.

That wasn't the question asked, not give background on the guy. Good job on plagiarizing material and making it appear as your own.

What's not factual about the general public getting taxed more because of the HCR bill? Never mind, you'll just dance around a direct question again. Besides, you still haven't answered the last one.

EDITORIAL: No Obamacare for Obama

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

President Obama declared that the new health care law "is going to be affecting every American family." Except his own, of course.

The new health care law exempts the president from having to participate in it. Leadership and committee staffers in the House and Senate who wrote the bill are exempted as well. A weasel-worded definition of "staff" includes only the members' personal staff in the new system; the committee staff that drafted the legislation opted themselves out. Because they were more familiar with the contents of the law than anyone in the country, it says a lot that they carved out their own special loophole. Anyway, the law is intended to affect "ordinaryAmericans," according to Vice President Joe Biden (who - being a heartbeat away from the presidency - also is not covered), not Washington insiders.


Mr. Obama frequently tossed around the talking point that the new law gave people the same type of coverage as Congress enjoyed. In his March 20 health care pep talk to wavering Democrats on Capitol Hill, the president said one of the advantages of the health care legislation was that "people will have choice and competition just like members of Congress have choice and competition." At yesterday's signing ceremony, Mr. Obama said Americans will be "part of a big pool, just like federal employees are part of a big pool. They'll have the same choice of private health insurance that members of Congress get for themselves." But the American people will have a public pool; the executive branch and congressional staffers kept their country-club pool private.

Last year, Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, spearheaded efforts to have all Americans included in the plan, but he ran into heavy opposition from unions representing federal workers - the same unions that were pro-Obamacare stalwarts. In September, the Senate approved a scaled-down amendment that covered members of Congress and their staff. When this provision later emerged from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office, the leadership and committee staff loophole had appeared. A move in December by Mr. Grassley and Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, to close this loophole and to extend the law to senior members of the executive branch - including the president, vice president and Cabinet members - was blocked by Senate Democratic leaders.

Mr. Grassley has introduced an amendment to the Senate health care reconciliation bill that also will apply the law to the upper tier of the executive branch and all Capitol Hill staffers, but it remains to be seen whether Democrats will let this measure move forward.

The special exemptions slipped into the health care law are another example of how those statists who rule consider themselves aprivileged class, imposing burdens on the country that they will not accept themselves. Candidates for office in 2010 should pledge to close these and other loopholes in the law that impose unequal burdens and create exclusive privileged classes in America. Meanwhile, we await Mr. Obama's explanation why if his "historic" health care law is so great for America, it's not good enough for him and his family.
Long live Obama!

Edit- My bad, that's for staff members. Obama and other congressmen are already on a govt health insurance plan. There is no need to be insured by a private program, like the bill mandates.

From Fox News

Obama's health care plan is written by a committee whose Chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress which hasn't read it, signed by a President who smokes, financial oversite by a Treasury Chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese and financed by a country that is broke. What could possibly go wrong?

The government basically forcing everyone that can afford it to buy health insurance and fining them if they don't. What's next, people have to buy a shiitty GM car to keep GM afloat....oh wait, tax payers are already doing that.
No need to worry about that. You already get special prices on GM vehicles when you're enlisted anyway, I believe more than the military discount you already get.

conspiracy?!

Remember Obama's wishes of online health records?

Verichip (now "PositiveID") has a plan in mind:


DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Mar 23, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PositiveID Corporation announced today that it has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office a non-provisional patent application for its iGlucose system, currently under development, which uses wireless SMS messaging to automatically communicate a diabetic patient's blood glucose levels from any data-capable glucose meter to an online database.

The iGlucose system is designed to communicate automatically with a wide variety of glucometers by utilizing electronics and stored information that will query and recognize a particular glucometer when connected to the device. This recognition aspect is unique because there are differences in how data is retrieved from different meters and manufacturers.

The iGlucose system also successfully addresses obstacles in SMS data transmission. Blood glucose and other data must be packed into a buffer to make most efficient use of the available bits, since SMS text messages are limited to 140 characters in a single message. Due to SMS transmission limitations, iGlucose utilizes proprietary data compression software and encryption algorithms to overcome these challenges.

Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID, said, "We are pleased to file this patent application to protect the key technology underlying the iGlucose System. We believe iGlucose has the potential to revolutionize the way diabetics and their healthcare providers manage this widespread disease through more effective and consistent communication of blood sugar levels."

With the iGlucose system, there is no downloading, dialing, computer, software or cell phone needed to complete the transmission.
continued:






According to PositiveID, the iGlucose system is a standalone, self-contained unit that will automatically query a diabetic's data-capable glucometer for blood glucose data and send that data via encrypted SMS text messaging to an online database. The system consists of a microprocessor, volatile memory, non-volatile memory, meter interface electronics, a minimal user interface, an embedded GSM modem, an internal antenna, and a battery.

iGlucose will automatically send a diabetic's blood sugar readings to an online database without the use of a cell phone, wireless network, telephone line or personal computer, the company said.

The company has partnered with Bit7, a research, development and engineering firm, and IsoSoft Solutions, a medical, industrial and financial software engineering firm, to complete the development process. Bit7 will undertake the hardware development, mechanical and electrical engineering of iGlucose. IsoSoft is responsible for the software development, specifically the download and transmission of data, and communication to and from the central server.

RFID Market Expecting Strong Rebound

Despite economic downturn, market set to reach $5.5 billion this year and continue growing.


The radio frequency identification (RFID) market is poised to bounce back strongly over the next few years, says ABI Research in a new report.

Despite a global economic recession, the research group anticipates the RFID market will reach $5.5 billion this year and grow steadily for the next five years, reaching over $8.25 billion in 2014.

According to ABI's recent Semi-Annual RFID Market Data report, although RFID has many uses, automobile immobilization is the biggest application, accounting for nearly 20% of the market.

Although growth in the established sections is leveling off somewhat, new areas are starting to see significant interest.

"Not all segments of the RFID market are created equal," says ABI's practice director, Michael Liard. "To 2014, the greatest growth will be found in RTLS (Real Time Location Systems), baggage handling, animal ID, and item-level tagging in fashion apparel and retail."

The report also states that documentation such as electronic vehicle registration, e-ID and e-government documents and library systems are all poised to adopt RFID technology.

so basiclly, now the IRS had access to our medical history. And they are implementing systems that can automatically track an individual through SMS and now are able to track their cars, luggage, pets, kids, car keys, coffee cup, etc.

Gotta love socialism / communism the Obama way!

AT&T Will Take $1B Non-Cash Charge For Health Care
By Barbara Ortutay - March 26, 2010

AT&T Inc. will take a $1 billion non-cash charge in the first quarter because of the health care overhaul and may cut benefits it offers to current and retired workers.

The charge is the largest disclosed so far. Earlier this week, AK Steel Corp., Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Co. and Valero Energy announced similar accounting charges, saying the health care law that President Barack Obama signed Tuesday will raise their expenses.

All four are smaller than AT&T, and their combined charges are less than a quarter of the $1 billion that AT&T is planning. The $1 billion is a third of AT&T's most recent quarterly profit. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the company earned $3 billion on revenue of $30.9 billion.

AT&T said Friday that the charge reflects changes to how Medicare subsidies are taxed. Companies say the health care overhaul will require them to start paying taxes next year
on a subsidy they receive for retiree drug coverage.

The telecommunications company also said it is looking into changing the health care benefits it offers because of the new law. Analysts say retirees could lose the prescription drug coverage provided by their former employers as a result of the overhaul.

AT&T rival Verizon Communications Inc. was among 10 companies that sent a letter to congressional leaders in December warning that their costs would increase with the health care changes. Verizon did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Shares in AT&T, which is based in Dallas, climbed 7 cents to $26.22 in afternoon trading Friday.
Fukk yeah, no more company subsidized health coverage and fewer available jobs.

It's OK, people will still have "universal health care" to pay for with the job they don't have.

Long live Obama!

typical corporation... profits go up and we cut expenses of employees...

reminds me of the Wall st. crash... shareholders (us) lose everything and the CEOs walk away with $20 million in bonuses...

greed is an evil notion... and all those companies should be ashamed of themselves
