How To Force Your Congressman to Change His Underwear. Show Notes-2/24/13 Show

Thanks to our special guest Betsy McCaughey, author of Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for the New Healthcare Lawfor sharing some essential information about the federal government’s takeover of our healthcare system. Did you know that you might be headed for Medicaid next year? Did you also know that patients covered by Medicaid have worse outcomes than the uninsured? Did you know that even if you retain your private insurance, the federal government will review your doctor’s decisions about your care?

On February 15, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing one of America’s leading experts on the 2nd amendment, David Kopel, and we heard Part 1 of the interview as part of this week’s 2nd Amendment Update. Part 2 will air next week.

Sunday Shows: the Regime sends buffoonish dullard/former Illinois GOP stooge Sec. of Defense Ray LaHood to CNN’s “State of the Union” and NBC’s “Meet The Press” to describe the parade of horribles that will befall us if we deprive the federal government of a single dime. Surprisingly (no, not really), hapless LaHood had no answer when Candy Crowley asked why he was warning of grounded planes and air traffic delays when (1) the FAA’s budget has increased $500 billion since 2008 and (2) the number of domestic flights is down 27% since 9/11, while the FAA budget is up 41%. Suggestion: if you want to get your congressman to wet himself, especially if he is a democrat, call and see if he can do what LaHood couldn’t or wouldn’t do; that is, answer these questions. Obama needs to stop whining about the sequester, since it was his idea, and he has spending the last week conducting a clinic on demagoguery, lying through his teeth about that fact, and the fact that any pain felt by the public will be because he is choosing it. He’s trying to tell us that he has no choice but to furlough meat inspectors and air traffic controllers because of a 2% decrease in the rate of growth rather than cutting out some bureaucratic bloat? PULEEZE!!

Overcoming Obamacare, Plus Obama’s War on the 2nd Amendment-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

This week we learned that, in addition to his many other talents, Joe Biden is also a firearms’ expert. Who knew? He got a little testy during what he thought would be another anti-Second Amendment agitprop fest, this time for Parents’ magazine, when a questioner suggested that the administration’s proposals might make it difficult for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and offered the sage advice he gave his wife, specifically, get a shot gun and if you hear a noise, go out on the back porch and fire a couple of blasts. Note to Girl Scouts: don’t show up unannounced at the Biden house!

Could that shotgun, which the clearly clueless Mr. Biden thinks is easier to shoot than an AR-15, be banned by the Obama administration? Yes, it could, according to David Kopel, Research Director of Colorado’s Independence Institute, Adjunct Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law, Denver University, Sturm College of Law, and one of America’s leading experts  on the 2nd Amendment. He’ll join us, and share his thoughts about what the Obama administration has in mind to trample on our 2nd Amendment rights.

Sadly, our hopes of ridding America of the scourge of Obamacare, at least anytime soon, evaporated last November with the re-election of Barack Obama. Now that we’re stuck with it, how will it affect you and your family?We’ll get answers from someone who has been fighting the federal government’s takeover of our health care system for over 20 years, Dr. Betsy McCaughey. Her new book, Beating Obamacare, is an essential handbook for protecting yourself. Despite what Nancy Pelosi said, you don’t have to read the law to find out what’s in it. We’l tell you today.

Barack Obama put on a clinic in demagoguery earlier this week, shaking his fists over the scary “sequester,” that even Jay Carney has admitted was his idea. The administration’s point man on the Sunday morning shows is the poster boy for the fact that politics is the last refuge of the mediocre, the buffoonish “Republican” Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood. He goes on the Sunday shows, and hilarity ensues.

It’s Oscar Sunday, and it’s clear now why so many in Hollywood love the film “Lincoln.” Plus Producer Thomas’ list of conservative movies you’d love to see.

Tune in today for the rest of the story.
