Liberal Lies About National Healthcare: Fourth in a Series

by Ann Coulter at Townhall.com

(This article is the fourth in a series. Click here for part one and part two and part three.)

(12) Only national health care can provide “coverage that will stay with you whether you move, change your job or lose your job” — as Obama said in a New York Times op-ed.

This is obviously a matter of great importance to all Americans, because, with Obama’s economic policies, none of us may have jobs by year’s end.

The only reason you can’t keep — or often obtain — health insurance if you move or lose your job now is because of … government intrusion into the free market.

You will notice that if you move or lose your job, you can obtain car and home insurance, hairdressers, baby sitters, dog walkers, computer technicians, cars, houses, food and every other product and service not heavily regulated by the government. (Although it does become a bit harder to obtain free office supplies.)

Project 2,996: Remembering Sarah Ali Escarcega

Eight years ago, a beautiful young lady was among almost 3,000 who perished in the horrendous attack on America by extremist Muslim terrorists.  Her name was Sarah Ali Escarcega.

Only three weeks prior she had taken a job at Risk Waters Group in New York City’s Twin Towers.  Peter Field, then Chairman and CEO of Risk Waters recalls, “Sarah was on a temporary contract and had been with us a mere three weeks. She had married only in April. A sad discovery a week or so after Sept. 11 was that her father, who lives in north London, had suffered racial abuse for being a Muslim.” She quickly left an impression on her supervisors and coworkers. Risk Waters’ World Trade Centers Appeal website memorializes Sarah with the following:

Sarah Ali Escarcega joined Risk Waters in August. Bright and motivated, she had a track record of impressive marketing positions at several top financial information companies, and had until April headed marketing strategy for Reuters’ Australian equities business. She was friendly and enjoyed working with people, and her intelligence shone through in any conversation. In fact, she made such an impression on Neil Cudmore (Risk Waters senior vice-president for The Americas) in her interview that he asked her if she could start working on a temporary basis the next day.
Sarah was still new to Manhattan on September 11. She had moved to the city a few months earlier after her wedding to Rogelio Escarcega. Restless living in the city without a job, she quickly seized the opportunity to join Risk Waters. In just her first month she had already proved herself, and was in the process of discussing a permanent position.

Sarah’s professionalism, intelligence and wonderful personal qualities will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

A young bride, full of hope and promise was taken from the world by the hands of radical religious zealots so full of hate and contempt they destroyed so many lives of unsuspecting and innocent people. Sarah’s husband was left alone, her future children left unborn, and so many whose lives she would have touched will never feel her presence.

So today, eight years after her untimely death, please take a moment to pray for and remember Sarah Ali Escarcega.

Democrats savage Joe Wilson comment while turning blind-eye to Rangel-Geithner Tax Evasions

by Rep. John Carter (R-TX)

(WASHINGTON, DC) – While Democrats have jumped to criticize Republican Congressman Joe Wilson for an emotional outburst during the President’s speech last night, they continue to turn a blind eye to the ongoing House ethics crisis caused by the decade-long failure of House Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel to report and pay federal taxes, according to House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter.

Carter says the hubbub over Wilson yelling “he lies”, right after the President called Republican objections to his health bill “lies”, is indicative of he Democrats’ skewed priorities in leading the nation. “While the credibility of this body is being destroyed by the double standards of the Speaker and the Administration, and the confidence of the American people in the integrity of the House of Representatives is at an all-time low, Democrats jump through the ceiling over an inappropriate verbal outburst while ignoring blatant law-breaking by fellow Democrats.”

“The Speaker has failed to police the House,” Carter says. “The IRS has failed to enforce the tax code. The Administration has shown contempt for the rule of law itself by consciously ignoring the self-admitted law-breaking of Chairman Rangel and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, through refusing to hold them accountable to the same standards as ordinary taxpayers. The glaring conflict of interest of the IRS commissioner having to answer to a tax evader who would be ineligible to work at the IRS based on his tax violations is intolerable in any nation that respects the law. And the only response of the Democrats to this massive corruption is to jump on Joe Wilson for a floor comment.”

Carter says it is increasingly apparent the only way to preserve the integrity of the House during this session of Congress will be for individual Democratic House Members to vote against their own leadership to restore regular order and the Rules of the House.
