There have been quite a few moments as I read my morning paper when I threatened to cancel our subscription, and another one occurred on Sunday.
In Section A, occupying a full page spread with a lengthy text that jumped to another page, the article ‘Reform takes aim at doctors’ not only touted Obamacare. The article is a soft pitch for the new book ‘Landmark: The Inside Story of America’s New Healthcare Law and What It Means for Us All.’ That book was written by Washington Post staff.
The subtitle to the newspaper article borders on inanity—‘How the health-care law might make them [doctors] better informed, more efficient and, maybe, happier.’

Neoliberal Democrats are in a hurry to accommodate President Barack Obama who wants the deal done before climate talks are held in Copenhagen in December. The president called “Senator Government” by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during the campaign will, according to one of many newspapers enamored of the Dem agenda, once again vastly expand government power and expend taxpayer money. The militaristic sounding Clean Energy Deployment Administration will see to financing and other matters as carbon credit trading gets down and dirty. Democrats do love their economic bubbles—dot coms, mortgage lending and the like.
The bill spans approximately 1,000 pages. The Wall Street Journal reported Democrats hired a speed reader who is not an elected official. At least someone in Washington read the bill. We taxpayers paid for that too.
