Illinois Republicans flirting with cigarette tax hike for Obamacare — and a reminder about Orrin Hatch

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 21, 2012 11:03 AM

Color me completely unsurprised. House Minority Leader Tom Cross responded to a post published Friday on National Review online which alleges Cross is on the verge of cutting a Medicaid deal with Governor Quinn and Illinois Democrats that could involve a cigarette tax hike. Joshua Culling writes about Quinn’s plan: It’s another piece of tax-and-spend […]

How Obamacare educrats will use school lunch enrollees to expand govt health empire

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 14, 2010 05:43 PM

I’ve written extensively on the Democrats’ use of kiddie human shields to pimp everything from the health care takeover to the Chicago crony-lympics bid to the anti-obesity campaign. Now, the Education Department is signaling that it will exploit its access to federal school lunch enrollees to dragoon more kids into the government health care empire. […]

Video: Baghdad Jim McDermott rails against conservative “indecency”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 22, 2010 07:01 AM

For those of you who may have forgotten, radical leftist Democrat Rep. Jim McDermott earned the infamous moniker “Baghdad Jim” after traveling to Iraq in the fall of 2002 for a Saddam-backed junket before the U.S. invasion. McDermott is also the defiant lawbreaker who leaked a tape of an illegally tapped phone conversation by GOP […]

Doing the health care anecdote-vetting the Left won’t do

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 16, 2010 11:27 PM

Here is Larry Scary O’Donnell — who can usually be seen frothing at the mouth with bulging neck veins as he melts down on MSNBC — sloooowly reading a teleprompter as he chastises me, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck for “attacking” 11-year-old Marcelas Owens. Nice to see your Valium working, Larry: As usual, he gets […]

Harry Reid hides behind 11-year-old kiddie shield Marcelas Owens

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 12, 2010 12:25 AM

This new video is currently the featured clip on the Senate Democrats’ YouTube site. It’s health insurance-bashing demagoguery and dumbing-down and cowardice and child exploitation at its worst. Watch what the Senate Democrats have entitled “Young Health Care Activist Discusses Health Insurance Industry Abuses:” On Wednesday, I told you about how the Democrats have resurrected […]

Obamacare Road Show, Pt. II: Bring out the human kiddie shields

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 10, 2010 09:25 AM

(Makestickers.com) My column shines light on the Hail Mary strategy of the Demcare-peddlers: Quick, hide behind the children! Just a reminder that President Obama will be in St. Charles, Missouri today for a closed-door, invitation-only Kabuki health care speech to high school students and then he’ll be heading off for a fund-raiser with Claire McCaskill.

Nanny State Gone Wild: Defining dependency up

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 24, 2009 04:02 AM

My column today builds on this post about the slacker mandate in Demcare — and examines how the chief architects of the government health care are openly achieving single-payer-by-proxy. Listen to the final self-congratulatory paeans to “health care as a right” this morning and you’ll understand exactly what I’m talking about and exactly what they […]

Obama’s classroom campaign: No junior lobbyist left behind

Photoshop: Leo Alberti My syndicated column today digs a little deeper into President Obama’s September 8 speech to schoolchildren. The school guides now featured front and center on the www.ed.gov website were developed by the White House Teaching Fellows — a group which includes several activist educators as you’ll see below. Downplaying academic achievement in […]

Senate S-CHIP roll call vote: 9 B.O. Republicans vote for raising taxes in a recession

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2009 11:39 PM

I don’t call them squishy, bend-over Barack Obama Republicans for nothing. Here’s the roll call vote on the massive S-CHIP expansion, funded with a huge tobacco tax increase that will hit the working poor the hardest in hard times. Nine Republican Senators joined the Democrats to shove the universal health care Trojan Horse through. The […]

Senate Dems undermining S-CHIP ID requirements for non-citizens

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2009 04:56 PM

The open-borders crowd has been pushing to get a piece of the S-CHIP pie for more than a year. House Republicans have flagged the issue repeatedly. The bill is now in the Senate. CNS reports on Harry Reid’s diffident attitude about the loosened ID standards: A proposed change to the State Children’s Health Insurance Program […]

The Trojan Horse S-CHIP Republicans

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 23, 2008 08:15 PM

Earlier today, I blogged the failure of the Democrat attempt to override President Bush’s S-CHIP expansion bill veto. I linked to the roll call vote, but it deserves a separate post. As covered here extensively last year, the Dems’ push to expand the children’s health insurance entitlement beyond low-income families, beyond children, and beyond legal […]
