Fox News’ Major Garrett And Robert Gibbs

Think the White House does not have lists and lists of peoples’ names?  Think this isn’t Fascism In America? I wonder what the color of my file is?

Here is the press secretary on the merry go round:

And the follow up with Cavuto:

Can you hear the cracks in the ice?

  2. Ahhhh…the LIST. I am sure there are many “lists” with many purposes. I am also sure that most Americans will find they are on some sort of list, with devious, nefarious, or disastrous intentions towards them. I feel certain that I am on at lest one list, because I voice my opinion….How un-American!!!!! This administration becomes scarier by the day…hour…minute!!!

  3. Thank God for Robert Gibbs! The WH press Sec. is supposed to be the brightest, most eloquent person the party has to offer. Gibbs is the poster child for Dishonest Incompetent Ignorance. Such is the state of the American Socialist movement. A big shout out to Robert Gibbs UUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMM, UUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMM

  4. Here’s a little history about health care in America: The Hill-Burton Act (http://www.answers.com/topic/hill-burton-act), was the Hospital Survey and Construction Act (named after sponsors Senator Lister Hill (D-Ala) and Harold Burton (R-Ohio). It’s purpose was to mandate and fund hospital centered care for all citizens, and was in effect from 1946 to the early 1970s. It was an amendment to the Public Health Service Act (http://www.hhs.gov/about/hhshist.html). It was only Nine (9) pages long! In order to implement and make this Act workable, local funding and cooperation was required in order to achieve the goal of having community hospitals in every county, guaranteeing hospital and medical to all citizens.

    On February 26, 1945, Senator Hill told the Senate that there needed to be a long range planned health care program available to all citizens. Lister stated that the Act needed to include “adequate hospital and public health facilities”. However, managed care was imposed in 1973, under Richard Nixon, when he signed into effect the Health Maintenance Organization and Resources Development Act (HMO’s) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_Maintenance_Organization_Act_of_1973) “This allowed private financial interests to interpose themselves between citizens and their providers of health care.” Surprise, surprise. In other words, it turned into a money making business, i.e. in order to make money, care has to be limited. You would call this “cost containment”.

    It should be noted that there exists a White House tape between Richard Nixon and John Ehrlichman. In the tape Ehrlichman states to Nixon, “Edgar Kaiser is running his Permanente deal for profit. And the reason that he can…do it, I had Edgar Kaiser come in to talk to me about this, and I went into it in some depth. All the incentives are toward less medical care, because… the less care they give them, the more money they make…the incentives run the right way.” (http://www.kaiserpapershawaii.org/kaiserpermanentehistory.htm).

    So who do we have as the financial owners of the HMO’s? How about Bank of America, Bank of New York Mellon Goldman Sachs, J.P. MorganChase, Morgan Stanley, and State Street. Also, Barclays, FMR/F idelity, Vanguard, Wellington, T. Rowe Price, Janus, TIAA-XREF teachers’ retirement fund, AXA, Dodge & Cox, Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss, Capital Research, Fairholme, Capital, FMR. Who’s on the board of directors for WellPoint (an HMO)? How about William Bucky Bush, Don Reigle (D-Misch.), Susan Bayh, Sheila Burke (former chief of staff to Bob Dole).

  5. Gibbs reminds me of the kid I knew in Grammar School, always borrowing an eraser – because he’d worn his down to the ferrule the first week of class! Man, I miss Tony Snow (RIP)!
