Big Dan's Big News Sep 4, 2009

MSNBC - Rachel Maddow explains the history of Medicare & the history of health care reform fights from FDR to JFK to the present (very interesting, watch it!). The first person to sign up for Medicare was president Harry Truman...I didn't know that!!!

LATimes: California HMO's deny 1-in-5 claims (study shows)

House liberals demand public option in letter to Obama

Special commentary by Big Dan: "How about 'tort reform' for insurance premiums? Conservatives always propose capping the amount for suing doctors and hospitals. How about a cap of $400 on a family insurance plan? My mortgage is $400 and my health insurance is $1,000 for two people! Or, for starters, make a law that your health care premium can't be higher than your mortgage!"

Obama criticized by hatewingers, for speaking to Obama is a politician, NOT a leader.

.......but they ignore that Reagan did it in 1988!!! (and George Bush did it, too...selective memories...)

Putting aside possible ulterior motives, the conservative freak-out over President Obama’s planned speech to students urging them to stay in school and work hard is due to fears that Obama will use his platform as an opportunity to push his agenda on unsuspecting students. Ironically, that’s exactly what President Reagan did two decades ago.

On November 14, 1988, Reagan addressed and took questions from students from four area middle schools in the Old Executive Office Building. According to press secretary Marvin Fitzwater, the speech was broadcast live and rebroadcast by C-Span, and Instructional Television Network fed the program “t o schools nationwide on three different days.” Much of Reagan’s speech that day covered the American “vision of self-government” and the need “to keep faith with the unfinished vision of the greatness and wonder of America” but in the middle of the speech, the president went off on a tangent about the importance of low taxes.

Conservative media take note: Reagan preached tax cut gospel to America’s students

Nothing to do with race, but SOUTHERN schools offer "opt out" of Obama speech.

Where's the outcry from these same people, about military recruiters in high schools targetting underage kids without telling their parents???

FL-13 CATCH 22: ES&S's Opening Misstatements"

Voter: Pardon me. Might we have a gander at those hash codes?
ES&S: We won't show you the hash codes. You don't have enough evidence to warrant an investigation of our hash codes.
Voter: Well, where do I get the evidence to warrant an investigation?
ES&S: I guess you'd have to look at the hash codes.
Voter: But I can't see the hash codes?'
ES&S: Unfortunately, no. They're a proprietary secret and can only be revealed when sufficient evidence is presented that there has been a malfunction.
Voter: And to provide sufficient evidence I would have to see—
ES&S: The hash codes, yes.
