White House Orders Free Health Tests


Pay close attention to the wording of this New York Times piece -

WASHINGTON — The White House on Wednesday issued new rules requiring health insurance companies to provide free coverage for dozens of screenings, laboratory tests and other types of preventive care.
Did you catch it? The White House issued new rules. By what authority does the White House issue rules concerning matters of law? Or could this be the first of many blatant diktats issued by fiat from a new tyranny? Nahhhh... couldn't possibly. This is a democratic republic, not a dictatorship.

The new provisions were announced Wednesday afternoon by first lady Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Who the hell are Michelle Obama and Jill Biden to be announcing new White House rules? I don't recall anyone voting for them.

Again, in a very small stroke, a bit of our liberty has just been shaved away and nobody noticed.

BP Shuts Off Oil, Obama to Take Credit

BP sealed the Gulf of Mexico oil leak "85 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes after the first report April 20 of an explosion on the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon oil rig that killed 11 workers and triggered the spill."

Obama is expected to take credit for the containment cap design and all success stemming from the work of BP engineers. At the end of financial reform comments to reporters at the White House, Obama was asked if he had anything to say about the oil cap. Obama said, no leaks is "a positive sign and I'll have more to say tomorrow."
