Coburn Tells Truth… Will Not Receive Invites to Christmas Parties

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Senator Tom Cuburn was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday and intimated that he was ready to accept a tax increase if Dumbocrats would put entitlements on the table. Without putting Medicare out there -- for those of you that think that the federal edifice can be preserved, which I have begun the process of thinking that is less and less likely. If you’re not going to either terminate or seriously reconfigure Social Security and Medicare -- which consume about two-thirds of every nickel the federal government has to borrow -- if you’re not going to seriously reconfigure those two things and tell people they’re just going to have to freaking deal with it, grow up, put a helmet on, life stinks, deal with it, your federal edifice is not going to survive.

Just Admit Defeat Already, Obamacare Should Be Reformed, Not Repealed

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the things that we talk about here on this show that I think distinguishes it from others is that there is no partisan solution. First of all, the conservative does not believe there is a political solution to life. Let me repeat that. The conservative does not believe that there is a political solution to life’s problems. Life’s problems have to be experienced and worked out by individuals. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

If You Think $680 Billion Budget Deficit Is Big, Just Wait For Obamacare To Be Added

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is just getting started, just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Where’s the money going to come from? Is this new woman, Janet Yellen, is she going to get in the Federal Reserve and crank out another $80 billion a month to pay for this? We have to keep the stock market going. You gotta feed the monkey, you know, man. Is she going to crank out $80 billion a month to subsidize all those that are going to sign up for the Affordable Care Act?

Conservative, Tea Party, And Republican Are Not Synonyms

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

The Federal Leviathan Needs To Be Downsized Before This Last Train To Brokesville Derails

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just to put this in perspective, this would mean that our mighty, gargantuan federal leviathan would have to exist on a paltry $1.2 trillion. In other words, it would have to exist on the expenditures of the last year of the Reagan administration, in 1989. Chew on that for a moment. Think about that. Then come back to me and tell me exactly how, practically speaking, this can possibly financially or numerically or mathematically work itself out. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Did You Think Decreasing The Size And Scope Of Government Would Look Like?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Is The Alternative To The Legislative Process?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now the government in the 21st century is trying to say that the health and welfare of every living soul on the North American continent is now the legislative duty and responsibility of the government of the United States. Some of us take great offense to that, see great danger in it, and do not want that principle, even though some have already surrendered on that principle when it comes to Medicare and Medicaid.

The Power of the Veto: What Will Obama Do?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even if everyone gets along and passes the Affordable Care Act, will Obama veto it, as he should? No, of course not, he'll sign it but for all the wrong reasons. If he signs it, he's saying that "this bill does not do damage to the Constitution" but everyone knows that it does, but so does Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Is there any chance at all that he will veto it? Yeah sure... for partisan reasons. Additions to the bill by House Republicans may force Obama to veto PARTS of the bill and send it back to be reviewed again, but that seems unlikely.

FEMA To The Rescue . . . Or Not

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I bring that up not to demonize or vilify the actual people in FEMA doing the work but just to point out, to fund FEMA, you have to have an act of Congress and you have to launder the money. Even from a practical, common sense, dollars and cents point of view, it is a waste of money. The State of Colorado could have spent less of its own money doing its own emergency relief rather than sending tax dollars and laundering it through Mordor on the Potomac River, having another bureaucracy oversee it that’s not in Colorado, and then having to marshal the forces and transport them to Colorado.

States Need To Give Federal Government All Their Powers Or None At All

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – With the revelation of Franklin Pierce’s veto of the indigent insane bill, my perspective on fighting the federal leviathan has taken on an entirely new tint now. I always knew there was no general welfare power granted to the Congress. I wasn’t aware that a first generation descendent of the founder had actually had to deal with it and so forcefully and so mightily and so irrevocably demolished that idea that it wouldn’t gain a majority in the Congress for another 80 years. That’s how powerful Pierce’s smackdown of Congress was. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Government Says A 10-Year-Old Girl Can’t Have A Lung Transplant

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Ms. Sebelius is now on the record as saying we’re going to review the rules we wrote about who gets lung transplants and organ transplants, when they get them, how old you have to be. That won’t have any effect on anyone currently waiting in line for a transplant. The Murnaghan girl, in other words, is not going to receive a benefit of the review of the rule.

The Affordable Care Act Ushers In Government Authority Over Who Lives And Who Dies

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What happens when the Affordable Care Act is 100 percent enforced? We’re going to have all kinds of YouTube video exchanges with people accusing the government or accusing whoever the Health and Inhuman Disservices Department secretary is at the time? How does it get to this? How do we arrive at the station in civilization’s existence where we now turn to government, then when government doesn’t deliver, we are fully prepared to wage verbal war against it for not doing what it is supposed to do, which is to transfer lungs now.

Dr. Eric Helps Us Unravel The Web That Is Medicare And Medicaid

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Caller Eric: A hospital may charge, say $140,000 and get paid $12,000, because Medicaid and Medicare set a fee schedule and say: Hospital, here’s your $12,000 for a total knee. You figure out how to make money. The rest of that charge is not allowed to be passed onto the patient by law. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Get Ready For a 1099-SU (That’s 1099-SCREW YOU)

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - So if you shop from more than just Amazon, what is the state going to do? Send you a 1099-SU (that's 1099-Screw You... for shopping online) at the end of the year? There are supposedly more than 9,000 taxing jurisdiction's out there, do you think they are really going to send out that many, and keep good enough records to do so, of these 1099-SU's? And what about the southern states voting FOR this internet sales tax? It's an admission that they are in just as bad shape as many of the "blue" states that are supposed to be in so much debt. If the southern states were doing so well, they wouldn't be voting for this. Check out the rest in today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you don't already have one!

Marketplace Intervention By The State Causes Healthcare Inflation

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Who is to say, without government mandate that a health insurance company must cover this, cover mental health, cover reproductive services, hangnails, whatever else they say you must cover, who is to say that any of the things that prolong life or are beneficial to the human condition and to our health are based on the price mechanism? The only way you would develop these things is if people could afford to pay for them. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Imagination Is What’s Needed To Unplug From The State

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I would suggest to you that there are few people out there who could imagine what life would actually be like if you actually had to take care of ourselves, if we had to actually run and mind our own business and our own community, if we were actually forced, because of the conditions we have foisted on ourselves, to do all these things for let’s say one-third the cost that we’re currently doing them at. That’s an imagination that few people have. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Gambling For Health Care

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - You have to marvel at the lack of frontier spirit that we as Americans currently exhibit in this which is supposed to be the greatest of all debates, whether or not the public is going to be responsible for everyone’s health services or medical services, or whether or not the individual ought to be responsible for it. I think the answer is clear, don’t you? Check out today's audio and transcript for the rest...

State Of The Union Is Just Partisan Political Theater

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Most State of the Union Addresses now are big political events. When I say political, I mean partisan political events. Whoever it is that is the occupant of the executive title of president will now normally give a pitch, a sales pitch on all the things he’d like to see done in the next year. It’s not necessarily an accounting of what has happened. It is a laundry list of what the current president wishes to happen. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

The States Need Boatloads Of Federal Money To Keep From Sinking

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The problem today is, and why your plan will not work under current conditions, because your State of Pennsylvania is in on it. Your state, just like my state, cannot exist and cannot continue to pretend that it can afford all the vainglorious government services it provides without the general government borrowing $1 trillion plus every year and then sending it back to the states in the form of block grants.

H&R Block Is Ready To Profit On Medicaid Expansion

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - How are you ever going to vote people out of the office who continue the flow, and how are you going to vote people into office that promise to cut it off? I want to ask that question again loud and clear. Please explain to me how you are ever going to un-elect someone that promises to cut the flow of healthcare money, even though it’s not real money, and how are you going to elect the people who promise to take an ax and cut the hose? We are now at the point of European-style, totalitarian, top-down national government. Congratulations, ladies and gentlemen. Check out today's transcript for the rest...

ObamaCare is Being Nullified by Governors Refusing to Open Exchanges

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - If the Feds cannot implement a plan to make use of our medical services, if they cannot implement a plan to take over and micromanage and manage our healthcare services, medical services, the medical services industry for all of us, what makes anyone think they can take over and manage our consumption of drugs for 314 million people? What makes you think they can take over and manage the administration of how we generate energy in our states, how we educate children in the states? My point is that they can’t do any of these things if the state legislatures and the people in the state don’t go along. Maybe this has been the out all along. Maybe those of us that have been counseling nullification and interposition and the election of governors that would say no to the exchanges, maybe that has always been the remedy that would deliver the repeal of ObamaCare that was so desired by so many.

Tax Pledge is Good; Politicians Will to Stop Spending is Bad

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I am also alarmed by these people that are running around calling themselves conservatives that are promoting the idea that for the republican Party to reclaim being a major political party and a winning national party, that they’re going to have to agree to raise tax rates on the wealthy, have to stop protecting the wealthy, do this and that and the other. That is foolhardy to me, especially if you’re trying to play the demographic game. Which candidate was it that was attracting, still is attracting the most amount of enthusiasm, among young people, especially intelligent young people? Was it Obama? Was it Romney? Who was it? It was Congressman Paul. What was one of the principle things that he talked about and still talks about? Sound money. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Caller: “Give Medicare to Everybody”

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - I'm just going to let Bob from Pennsylvania speak for himself here, check out the rest in today's audio and transcript, "Let me run something by you, Mike. A kid graduates from college this year. He’s going to pay Medicare for 40 years and not see an ounce of benefit from it. Why not just bill him four percent now and give it to him now? Give Medicare to everybody. That would be the biggest boon in business in the history of our civilization. How? We would take the obscene cost of healthcare away from businesses."

Caller Bill Knows Medicaid Is Broken

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Here's a quote from Bill, a doctor in Atlanta, who sees often sees Medicaid patients in the Emergency Room but not in the office, for the rest, check out today's audio and transcript, "From the standpoint of Medicaid, Medicaid will fight you tooth and nail on any penny. The reimbursement is poor already. By the way, at the end of the year, and it’s now coming up about that time, I will probably get a letter from my state saying: Medicaid funds are now empty. We will hold all payment for the next 30, 45 days, etc. How in the world can anyone run a business when they’re paying on credit for two months? This is the problem. The translation to the overall healthcare system is that when all these individuals are seen in an emergency care setting, emergency rooms are overrun. When emergency rooms are overrun, you have to staff your emergency room with people that are probably not as highly trained as you would want because you just need personnel to just take care of the patients. When that happens, you start relying on medical testing, not on physical exam or history taking because you don’t have the time."
