ChiBama Politics & Healthcare –
Working Americans need to realize that if Obamacare passes in any form (without Republican input), it will quickly lead to a tinkering with the bill and regulations that will lead towards or start a “public option”/”medicare expansion! When just a few steps are taken towards government controlled healthcare, the stockholders of private insurance will bail out while their stocks are worth something & this will put private healthcare out of business for good.
Health Insurance Companies can be reformed without destroying them!
Call Sen. Lieberman and Sen. Ben Nelson to try to stop this horrible inevitable consequence!

Lieberman Statement Sends Health Insurance Stocks UpWednesday, December 16, 2009
Joe Liberman, the senator from Aetna
Holiday treats came early this year for the health insurance industry—not from Santa Claus but from U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT). The stock prices of major insurers rose on Monday after Lieberman threatened to join Republicans and delay consideration of healthcare reform legislation until the New Year. Lieberman said he opposes a plan to allow Americans aged 55 and older to buy into Medicare coverage.
Market analysts said there has been a correlation this year between the value of health insurance shares and the chance of reform being adopted by Congress. “Every time the reform seems less likely that it will happen, the entire group trades higher,” Wells Fargo Securities analyst Matthew Perry told the Dow Jones Newswire….Continue Reading
Obama – Underminer In Chief – Navy Seals Prosecution
Everyday this Navy Seals prosecution goes on, the more convinced I am that Obama is seeking to intentionally undermine the United States Military. Consider what Obama is doing to CIA via the bringing the trial of terrorist, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, to New York City. Consider what Obama is doing by not calling the Ft. Hood terrorist attack a terrorist attack.
It’s ‘Absolutely Ridiculous’ to Prosecute Navy SEALs Over Alleged Punching of Terrorist, Says Former JAG Lawyer Now Serving in Congress
Wednesday, December 16, 2009
By Fred Lucas, Staff Writer
(CNSNews.com) – A former military lawyer now serving in Congress called the court martial of three Navy SEALs who captured a terrorist suspected of killing four Americans “absolutely ridiculous.”
Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) served four years in the U.S. Army’s Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps and served as the special assistant U.S. attorney at Fort Hood, Texas, prosecuting all civilian crimes at the post. He later taught constitutional and criminal law at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
He believes the SEALs case represents a larger systemic problem. The SEALs are accused of allegedly abusing terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed by supposedly punching him and then lying about the incident. Abed is the reported architect of the murder of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004, the bodies of whom were burned and hanged from a bridge.
“Never before in the history of this country, as much as now, does somebody [in the military] have to wonder is this going to get me thrown into Leavenworth for the rest of my life?” Rooney told CNSNews.com.
“Certainly, we want to take the high road, and we want to have the highest standards,” he said. “But we also need to have clear rules of engagement. That’s incumbent on us to maintain the leadership role, and the Department of Defense. And court martialing three SEALs for maybe or maybe not punching some guy in the stomach without any kind of corroborating evidence I don’t think is sending the right message.”
The three SEALs are Matthew McCabe, 24, of Perrysburg, Ohio; Julio Huertas, 28, of Blue Island, Ill.; and Jonathon Keefe, 25, of Yorktown, Va. Each is charged with dereliction of duty for failing to protect the terror suspect, Abed, and with making false statements…Continue Reading
