The Health Administration Bureau released another video.
Ten years ago, a candidate who ran for re-election to the House of Delegates in Bath County made a comment on an ad that ran in the Bath County Register, which said:
“I don’t believe in discrimination, but I don’t believe in special rights for anyone. I have never voted to allow gay partners to receive medical insurance — or any other benefit — from the state. It’s sad that Mr. Collins has to resort to bigotry and hate-mongering.”
Now, who said this and who has placed Bob McDonnell’s 1989 thesis into the spotlight recently? That’s right, Creigh Deeds. Now, since The Washington Post has been ridiculing McDonnell on a thesis written 20 years ago, when will they ridicule Deeds on his statement, which appeared in a newspaper ten years ago?
President Obama’s speech before a joint session of Congress last night did not yield any surprises. For some, including myself, it sounded more like a campaign speech, rather than moving our country in the right direction. Obama touted a single-payer health care system, modeled after Canada, as his solution to the health care crisis. In addition to his emphasis on the single-payer system, Obama also introduced other parts of his plan, which included the promises of being able to keep your current health coverage, creating an insurance exchange, which would allow one to shop for health coverage, and reforming medical malpractice laws. This will all come to you at a cost of $900 Billion over 10 years.
Let’s look at Obama’s remarks (my emphasis will be in purple). Also, check out Cato @ Liberty, who had a live blog running. In addition, sign the petition to stop the public option at Join Patients First.
Remarks of President Barack Obama – As Prepared for Delivery
Address to a Joint Session of Congress on Health Care
Wednesday, September 9th, 2009
On August 30th, Bob McDonnell appeared at a rally in Fairfax. Surrounded by lots of supporters at Burke Lake Park, McDonnell fired up the crowd to go out and work hard for the ticket. The big surprise came when Ken Cuccinelli came riding through the area on a mountain bike and made it just in time to deliver his remarks. Here are some pictures from the event.
