Did Obama force the Republicans to shoot their wad early?

Right now they seem to be running out of steam leaving many asking "that's all you got?". Obama must truly be a genious! The Republicans have already shown their hand proving they had no intention of voting for reform. Kick then aside Obama, you tried bi-partisanship.

The Repubaboobies are up in arms, and well they should be.

Osama's, err, Obama's spanking new healthcare plan will not cover Republicans. What a relief. I feared that those other 50 million or so without healthcare would be out there all alone.

Cancer drugs? We don't need no stinkin' cancer drugs.

New "medical" procedures for women suffering eyelash inadequacy (and one man's pride in his own eyebrow)

Breakthroughs in Eye Hair: The pharmaceutical company Allergan has introduced eyelash-thickener Latisse, a $120 per month prescription "medication" to help a woman overcome feelings of inadequacy if she suffers from scrawny lashes. Alternatively, eyelash transplants are now available in the U.S. and Britain, originally developed to restore lashes for burn victims, but, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, now to market to women dissatisfied with their own (at about $6,000).

And in May, Washington, D.C., resident Brian Peterkin-Vertanesian petitioned the Guinness Book to recognize "Wally," his 6 3/8-inch eyebrow hair as the world's longest, beating the current record by almost an inch.

PS:  Thank the maker that the pharmaceutical companies have their priorities straight.

 

 

Obama gives up on GOP for health care

“In his 60 Minutes interview, Obama also acknowledged he has nearly given up working out a deal on health care with all but a few Republicans, the majority of whom he said were interested only in using the issue to restore their party to power.”

“Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat who recently filled the late Senator Ted Kennedy's seat as chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said Sunday that a Senate health-care reform bill would include a "strong" public option and that it would get through by the holiday recess,” CNN reports.

PS:  Obama has finally begun the real push for a health care plan.  I just hope he doesn't pick the mandatory private insurance for everyone option.  That would be the biggest gift to corporate America in history.

 

He was against mandatory insurance when was campaigning

This is a major reversal on campaign promises
