Max Baucus on Obamacare’s hidden agenda – redistribution of wealth

Max Baucus is the Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and the Democrat most responsible fo Obamacare’s final shape other than Nancy Pelosi.

In an unusual speech on the Senate floor moments ago, Max Baucus declares that the “healthcare bill” to be  “an income shift, it is a shift, a leveling to help lower income middle income Americans.”  Baucus continued, “[t]oo often, much of late, the last couple three years the mal-distribution of income in America is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind.  Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America.  This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.”

Baucus’ candor is appreciated, though the fact that he waited until the bill passed to announce the real agenda behind the massive tax hikes isn’t a profile in courage.  And the seniors on fixed income who are about to lose Medicare Advantage would laugh at Baucus’ pseudo-populism.

Kerry wishes it were Palin who had gone missing

Kerry wishes it were Palin who had gone missing

Ethel C. Fenig
There he goes again.  Senator — and former presidential candidate, John (I voted for it before I voted against it) Kerry (D-MA) who, despite his fine education and even greater wealth — thanks to his 2 wealthy wives — is noted for shoving his foot in his mouth.  The man who insulted the people serving in America’s Armed Forces by saying

You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.

has done it again.  Writing in the Boston Herald, Rachelle Cohen enlightens us on Kerry’s sense of humor.  When told of Governor Mark Sanford’s (R-SC) mysterious four day disappearance

“Too bad,” Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.”

The Democratic-centric crowd laughed.

Tee hee!  Letterman, Kerry–all afraid of strong, independent women!  Kerry should find a job with David Letterman–who would miss him? 

And as for Governor Palin

Gov. Sarah Palin is on her way to an undisclosed “overseas” location to visit deployed Alaska National Guard troops.

From Palin’s Twitter feed:

“Travel now to bring appreciation from their Alaska family & Natl Guard leadership to heroes in US European Command’s area of responsibility.”

And that, Senator Kerry, is no joke.  But of course you, defamer of troops from way back, think it is. 

Jack Kemp adds:

These remarks by the snotty senator show that the Democrats are very frightened of Gov. Palin. And that’s even without her inviting him to go moose hunting.
