National security clearance guidelines disqualify the FRAUD obama

US Defense Security Service Guidelines, Federal Statute 50 USC 435 and Executive Order 12968 Indicate That Various Agency Heads Should Deny President Obama Access To Classified Information.

A thorough review of national security clearance guidelines and federal statutes indicates that various heads of government agencies in charge of disseminating classified information should deny access to classified information to President Obama unless and until he undergoes a statutory background check and achieves a proper security clearance.

This article stipulates that it is common practice for the FBI to grant full security clearance to elected officials such as Congressman and Senators. The same courtesy has been extended to the office of President and Vice President. This is done in recognition that these elected officials represent the will of the American people.

However, federal law mandates that if such courtesy conflicts with national security then agency heads are expected to deny access to classified information. In President Obama we have a Commander In Chief who admits to having been a British citizen as well as a citizen of Kenya. Furthermore, President Obama may still be a a British citizen and/or subject. He may have also been a citizen of Indonesia.

We just don’t know the answers to these questions because he just won’t answer them.

US Defense Security Service Guidelines

US Defense Security Service guidelines are very clear in that persons with past allegiance to foreign nations are to undergo security checks to determine whether such allegiance is dangerous to the US:

Conditions that could raise a security concern and may be disqualifying include:

a. The exercise of dual citizenship;

b. Possession and/or use of a foreign passport;

c. Military service or a willingness to bear arms for a foreign country;

d. Accepting educational, medical, or other benefits, such as retirement and social welfare, from a foreign country;

f. Residence in a foreign country to meet citizenship requirements;

g. Using foreign citizenship to protect financial or business interests in another country;

h. Seeking or holding political office in the foreign country;

h. Voting in foreign elections; and

i. Performing or attempting to perform duties, or otherwise acting, so as to serve the interests of another government in preference to the interests of the United States.

Conditions that could mitigate security concerns include:

a. Dual citizenship is based solely on parents’ citizenship or birth in a foreign country;

b. Indicators of possible foreign preference (e.g., foreign military service) occurred before obtaining United States citizenship;

c. Activity is sanctioned by the United States;

d. Individual has expressed a willingness to renounce dual citizenship.

The government security guidelines examine whether the person has renounced his foreign citizenship. The issue of whether Obama is still a British citizen or subject must be addressed by a proper US government background clearance examination since it appears President Obama has never renounced his UK citizenship or subject status.

A forthcoming report at this blog will detail the intricacies of British nationality law with regard to whether President Obama is currently under the domain of the UK. But this should be done by our government officials as well. If he is under their domain, he’s also under the domain of the European Union.

Federal Statute 50 USC 435. Executive Order 12968.

50 USC 435 is the federal statute concerned with the classification of sensitive information. It empowered Executive Order 12968 which was enacted by President Clinton in 1995. These laws provide the Executive Branch rules for granting security clearance to classified information.

EO 12968 exempts the President and the Vice President from having to pass a security clearance examination. However, both 50 USC 435 and Executive Order 12968 contain the same exact safety provision empowering agency heads to deny access to classified information upon their own discretion.

50 USC 435 states:

Subsection (a) of this section shall not be deemed to limit or affect the responsibility and power of an agency head pursuant to other law or Executive order to deny or terminate access to classified information if the national security so requires. Such responsibility and power may be exercised only when the agency head determines that the procedures prescribed by subsection (a) of this section cannot be invoked in a manner that is consistent with the national security.

Executive order 12968 Section 5.2 (e) states:

(e) This section shall not be deemed to limit or affect the responsibility and power of an agency head pursuant to any law or other Executive order to deny or terminate access to classified information in the interests of national security. The power and responsibility to deny or terminate access to classified information pursuant to any law or other Executive order may be exercised only where the agency head determines that the procedures prescribed in subsection (a) of this section cannot be invoked in a manner that is consistent with national security. This determination shall be conclusive.

Since the President and Vice President are exempted from these regulations, the regulations can’t be invoked in a manner consistent with national security. As such, any agency head who determines that providing the President with classified information is inconsistent with national security may withhold such information.

According to law, such a determination is conclusive. No review is even possible.

President Obama should submit to a full security clearance examination before a national crisis takes place. Agency heads who continue to provide classified information to President Obama do so at the risk of national security. President Obama was a citizen of at least two foreign nations and his passport history is unknown. It appears that he may still be legally subject to the monarchy of Great Britain. This would trigger issues concerning the Master Nationality Rule whenever Obama stands on British soil.

These issues are not trivial. But for Obama being President, he would have to provide everything discussed in the Defense Security guidelines. He is also charged with enforcing those very same guidelines. How can he enforce them with a straight face if he’s never submitted to them himself?

President Obama has never officially renounced or denied his British citizenship. And he has admitted that he was a British citizen at birth. His past is so intertwined with various other nations that it is impossible, without a proper security clearance examination, for agency heads to forward classified information to him without concern. Government agency heads in charge of releasing classified information have the undeniable legal right to deny the President classified information.

Until President Obama’s passport and citizenship status in other nations is thoroughly determined, agency heads who forward him classified information do so with unknown risks to national security.

There are too many unknowns with regard to past allegiance to foreign powers for such information to be passed on safely. Agency heads cannot afford to be shy or afraid of backlash. Their decision is legally conclusive.

There is no transparency here and I do not see why the President himself is not calling for a proper background check on himself.

Why put the agency heads in this position?

It would be a proper start to necessary transparency if Obama would discuss whether he’s ever held a foreign passport and whether he’s ever traveled under a foreign passport. He should also take the official steps necessary to renounce his prior foreign citizenship.

That’s what a statesman would do.

An extraordinary liar: barack obama

"I need you to knock on doors, talk to neighbors, spread the facts and speak the truth," This is what the extra ordinary liar wants me to do. So I will spread the facts and speak the truth. The truth will speak for itself and expose the FRAUD obama as an extraordinary liar.

He referred to some assertions as "ludicrous," and cited as an example rumors that the government is planning to set up "death panels" to determine the fate of the nation's elderly.

My answer:

The AP is technically correct in stating that end-of-life counseling is not the same as a death panel. The New York Times is also correct to point out that the health care bill contains no provision setting up such a panel.

What both outlets fail to point out is that the panel already exists.

H.R. 1 (more commonly known as the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, even more commonly known as the Stimulus Bill and aptly dubbed the Porkulus Bill) contains a whopping $1.1 billion to fund the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research. The Council is the brain child of former Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Tom Daschle. Before the Porkulus Bill passed, Betsy McCaughey, former Lieutenant governor of New York, wrote in detail about the Council's purpose.

Daschle's stated purpose (and therefore President Obama's purpose) for creating the Council is to empower an unelected bureaucracy to make the hard decisions about health care rationing that elected politicians are politically unable to make. The end result is to slow costly medical advancement and consumption. Daschle argues that Americans ought to be more like Europeans who passively accept "hopeless diagnoses."

Who is on the Council? One of its most prominent members is none other than Dr. Death himself Ezekiel Emanuel. Dr. Emanuel's views on care of the elderly should frighten anyone who is or ever plans on being old. He explains the logic behind his discriminatory views on elderly care as follows:

Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years.

On average 25-year-olds require very few medical services. If they are to get the lion's share of the treatment, then those 65 and over can expect very little care. Dr. Emanuel's views on saving money on medical care are simple: don't provide any medical care. The loosely worded provisions in H.R 1 give him and his Council increasing power to push such recommendations.

Similarly hazy language will no doubt be used in the health care bill. What may pass as a 1,000 page health care law will explode into perhaps many thousands of pages of regulatory codes. The deliberate vagueness will give regulators tremendous leverage to interpret its provisions. Thus Obama's Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein will play a major role in defining the government's role in controlling medical care.

How does Sunstein approach end of life care? In 2003 he wrote a paper for the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies arguing that human life varies in value. Specifically he champions statistical methods that give preference to what the government rates as "quality-adjusted life years." Meaning, the government decides whether a person's life is worth living. If the government decides the life is not worth living, it is the individual's duty to die to free up welfare payments for the young and productive.

Ultimately it was Obama himself, in answer to a question on his ABC News infomercial, who said that payment determination cannot be influenced by a person's spirit and "that at least we (the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research) can let doctors know and your mom know that...this isn't going to help. Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller."

Maybe we should ask the Associated Press and New York Times if they still think we shouldn't be concerned about a federal "death panel."

ObamaCare House Bill

• Page 30: A government committee, or DEATH PANEL, will decide what treatments and benefits you get (and, unlike an insurer, there will be no appeals process)

p30 of the bill says a government committee will decide what treatments and benefits you get, with no possible appeal. A committe is just another word for a panel. THIS IS A DEATH PANEL! and obama is a LIAR. Obama is Dr Death!


Obama the extraordinary lair also said: In addition, the plan does not provide health insurance to illegal aliens, it does not represent a government takeover of health care and it would not lead to government funding of abortion, he said.

My answer.

• Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free healthcare services.

• Page 91: Government mandates linguistic infrastructure for services; translation: illegal aliens

• Page 170: Any NON-RESIDENT alien is exempt from individual taxes (Americans will pay for them).

Here I have once again EXPOSED the extraodinary liar obama. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie about obamacare. These are the facts. Check the facts against what obama has said. Obama is a chronic LIAR!

Obama, who took no questions, said the opposition was no surprise.

The liar would take no questions because he would have to explain the bill if asked. He knows he can't so he will not take questions.

Obama is exposed as a liar

ObamaCare: Soylent Green Recycled

ObamaCare: Soylent Green Recycled
Soylent Green

At the end of the film Soylent Green, the hero discovers that the corpses of government assisted suicides are being recycled into food wafers for the remaining viable population. His last words at the end of the film are appropriate for "obamacare". We’ve got to stop them somehow!

By Nancy Matthis | Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Infanticide and euthanasia for less viable paying citizens will save costs. Twelve million illegal aliens will receive coverage. Restrictive compliance laws will eventually force private insurers out of business. Within five years everyone will be dependent on the federal government for their right to live (or, in some cases, their obligation to die). The administrative and expense burden will destroy small businesses. Doctors will be too snarled in red tape to deliver good service. Hospitals will also face a bureaucratic reporting nightmare. No one can refuse to enroll: the IRS will levy a 2.5% tax on personal gross income to pay their share. That’s the bottom line in Obama’s Hitleresque socialized health care plan.

Before Obama was elected, Illinois nurse Jill Stanek exposed his support for infanticide. Several sources reported the details of his four distinct votes supporting infanticide:

Illinois Senate Bill 1095, Born Alive Infant Protection Act — Voted NO in the Senate Judiciary Committee, March 27, 2001

Illinois Senate Bill 1662, Born Alive Infant Protection Act — Voted NO in the Senate Judiciary Committee, March 5, 2002

Illinois Senate Bill 1662, Born Alive Infant Protection Act — Voted NO on the Senate floor, April 4, 2002

Illinois Senate Bill 1082, Born Alive Infant Protection Act — Voted NO in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, March 12, 2003

But the voters of the United States elected Obama anyway. (Obama is a Killer.)

Now the older demographic among them may have to pay an unexpected price for their folly. The health care bill provides for mandatory euthanasia counseling for senior citizens every five years AND whenever they receive a diagnosis of terminal illness (page 425, House version of the bill — H.R.3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009). First to sound the alarm was patient advocate Betsy McCaughey, founder of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths and a former lieutenant governor of New York. You can listen to her interivew on the Fred Thompson Show here.

Keith A. Fournier is a Catholic Deacon of the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia, a noted human rights lawyer and long time public policy activist. He comments on the lethal potential of the health care bill:

Is Euthanasia Included in National ‘Health Care’ Reform?

….Will this National “Health Care” Plan encourage our elderly to take their own lives rather than somehow become a “drain” on the rest of us? Will it withhold medical care from them based upon a bureaucrat’s decision regarding so called “quality of life” issues? Will it encourage the rationing of medical services? Will it counsel the withdrawal of nutrition and hydration in order to expedite their death? In short, is Euthanasia included in this National ‘Health Care’ Reform?

The more I have looked at the proposals the more it seems not only possible, but probable. After all, when the foundational understanding of the dignity of every human person is removed from our approach to health care in the spring of life, with the acceptance of the killing of innocent children in the womb being considered as a “health service”, it is profanely consistent to see the same approach applied in the winter of life….

But we are not just talking about those very near the end of life. The specific wording in the bill is:

….if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual, including diagnosis of a chronic, progressive, life-limiting disease, a life-threatening or terminal diagnosis or life-threatening injury, or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility (as defined by the Secretary), or a hospice program.

Just a “life-limiting” disease is enough to trigger the state’s interest in you. Down’s Syndrome? Muscular dystrophy? Alzheimer’s? Senile dementia? You could be encouraged to “go home” early.

But even if you are in fairly good shape, and you are past middle age, you have cause for concern. See TITLE IV–QUALITY: Subtitle A–Comparative Effectiveness Research. “Comparative Effectiveness Research” means that they will take the cost of your proposed treatment and divide that by the remaining years of your statistical life expectancy. If your per-year life cost exceeds the state-mandated threshhold, you won’t get the health care. Are you a military veteran over 59 who risked everything for your country? No heart by-pass surgery for you, you expensive old goat!

That will save big bucks for little Pedro, whose parents came here illegally to partake of your largesse. And as for the 12 million illegals who will be getting the services you are forfeiting, the health care bill also provides for using more of your tax money for translation services, so that those who speak no English can be fully informed how to take maximum advantage of the system that they did not pay for.
House "DeathCare" bill PDF form Soylent Green Recycled ObamaCare

Soylent Green is a 1973 dystopian science fiction movie depicting a future in which overpopulation leads to depleted resources, which in turn leads to widespread unemployment and poverty. Real fruit, vegetables and meat are rare, expensive commodities, and much of the population survives on processed food rations, including "soylent green" wafers.

"Soylent Green is people! We've got to stop them somehow!"

After Thorn learns of the use of human bodies to make food, his main concern is with the future implications: that the Soylent food company will eventually "raise humans like cattle."

After Roth discovers that Soylent wafers are made from human flesh, and decides to end the horror by signing up for government-assisted suicide, he is shown a montage of beautiful natural images in the death chamber: flowers, deer, mountains, and rivers. When Thorn rushes to the active, voluntary euthanasia clinic to try to stop Roth, he is too late to save his friend, but he is able to share Roth's final moments. In Roth's last minutes alive, "Thorn shares Sol’s nostalgic moment" as Sol asks “Can you see it?” and “Isn’t it beautiful?”, which helps Thorn to realize "what he and the rest of the world has lost."
Think about what obamacare will do. It will in effect create more voluntary euthanisa clinics. No I don't believe humans will become food but I do believe "health care" will be rationed and totally controlled by the "government". Soylent Green is what obama wants to force on the US population in the form of "obamacare" It will lead to government assisted euthanisa.

We have Marxists reigning, in America's executive and legislative branches

Support Our Oath Keepers. Our military and law enforcement personnel are squarely in the center of America's increasing tensions. They must be armed and ready, with the truth.


We have Marxists reigning, in America's executive and legislative branches, and sympathetic thought in virtually half of our judiciary. They have never ceased to be revolutionaries. They practice the systemic violence of the "Cloward-Piven Strategy," to bring America to socioeconomic failure, as they seek to level their presumed powers of the state upon us, while building their "armies of the proletariat," to "fundamentally transform" and "remake" America. Those last two quotes are the very words of Barack Obama.

We do not know what will happen, as 2012 nears, nor as the 2010 elections come. With the popularity of Barack Obama and the "progressive" Congress on the decline, we do not know what Providence will allow, yet this year.

As new kinds of manufactured, generated, and false-flag crises are a distinct possibility -- as DHS/FEMA and Obama's Czars usurp more powers -- as our personal, state and national sovereignties are directly threatened, our military and law enforcement personnel may have to decide whether they are on the side of tyranny and treason, or on the side of:

* the overriding principles of our Declaration of Independence
* their oaths to protect, defend, and support our Constitution, including its boundaries
* our essential sovereignty, as the People of the United States of America.

Please get the message of this video and the Oath Keepers Web site out, to all those you know in the military and law enforcement community -- and to those with friends and family who serve.

We are already being warred against (and the Obama/Pelosi "healthcare" plan threatens to be a "keystone" of this assault).

Please use the technology at your fingertips and spread the word.

(Obama and his brown shirts will not stop. They will not stop if the FRAUD is removed from office. It is very important to put someone like Ronald Reagan in office who will defend America instead of someone like obama who will destroy America. We must continue to answer the "brown shirts" in what ever form in kind. The enemy is within! Traitors in our midst.) Story Reports

Show Your Support For Glenn Beck And Hit Back Twice As Hard

Defend Glenn Go here to help defend Glenn Beck against the obama attack. Yes we can expose the FRAUD obama!
On July 28, Beck called President Obama a racist who has a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture." (I agree with Glenn Beck.)

Racist quotes from Obama's books...

The quotes below are from Obama's book, "Dreams of My Father";
Although Obama spent various portions of his youth living with his white maternal grandfather and Indonesian stepfather, he vowed that he would "never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

This is from "Audacity of Hope";
"There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs," he wrote. "It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

From "Dreams";
"The emotion between the races could never be pure,” “Even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart."

"There was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. "A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white"

I wonder how many have read his books?
Does this sound like a man who should be the president of America?
The president of blacks AND whites??

From 'Dreams of My Father',
"I CEASED TO ADVERISE MY MOTHER'S RACE AT THE AGE OF12 OR 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites"


From 'Dreams of my Father', "The emotion between the races could never be pure..... the THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN AND APART"

From Dreams Of My Father, "never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHER'S IMAGE , THE BLACK MAN, THE SON OF AFRICA, THAT I'D PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUGHT IN MYSELF.

From Dreams Of My Father:
"THAT HATE HADN'T GONE AWAY," he wrote, BLAMING WHITE PEOPLE,- SOME CRUEL, SOME IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives."

Obama is just like the grand dragon of the KKK except he is a racist mixed bitter shadow of a man doomed to forever search for his identity packaged by the mass media as a "black man". In truth he is a racist who was trained by the "rev wright" to hate white people as Glenn Beck has stated in a round about way. I won't beat around the bush. Obama is a bigot, racist FRAUD!

(The above comments from obama ARE RACIST! Glenn Beck is correct! Obama is a RACIST! His own words from his books prove it!)


War erupts over Glenn Beck TV show: Fans fight back
Launch campaign against boycott group founded by Obama's 'environmental czar'

Van Jones

Glenn Beck fans are fighting back against a campaign led by a black activist organization prompting major advertisers to withdraw from Beck's top-rated Fox News Channel program.

Last week, NewsBusters reported President Obama's "green jobs czar," Van Jones, is co-founder of, an activist organization that has led a furious campaign against Beck culminating in major companies such as Geico and pulling their spots from the Fox News star's daily show.

In recent weeks, Beck has done several critical segments about Van Jones, who was appointed as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Beck's segments were based in part on WND's reporting that Jones was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader.

Get Glenn Beck's "Common Sense" ... The case against an out-of-control government: Inspired by Thomas Paine

Now a husband and wife team of Beck fans has launched a website – – that lists the contact information for advertisers for Beck's and other Fox News programs and provides users with information and suggestions to contact those companies to urge their continued sponsorship. The site also asks users to contact Beck's current patrons to thank them for their loyalty to the Fox News star's program.

"Our goal is to hit advertisers hard with response from Beck fans with real purchasing power, unlike the instigators of this phony Astroturf boycott," the founder of DefendGlenn told WND.

"At some point they will realize they've been punked by a bunch of paid activists, college students
and slacker bloggers in their parents' basements who don't purchase their products anyway," said the founder, who asked that his name be withheld.

ColorofChange, meanwhile,says it has garnered about 75,000 signatories for an online petition against Beck to be sent to advertisers.

Obama is a racist! Obama quote: From "Dreams"; "The emotion between the races could never be pure,” “Even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart." "There was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. "A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white" Obama is also a liar and a FRAUD.

Lets think about this obama quote. What if I said the emotion between races could never be pure? What if I said love was tarnished by a the desire to find in the "other" some element that was missing in myself or "ourselves". If I said I was looking at the negro race for demons or salvation and only finding something "menacing, alien and apart" I would be saying all the negro or black race had demons etc.

Obama specifically talks about the "other race". Obama has group all white people togeather and made racist comments about the "other race". He said there is something about "him" "the other race" that makes, "him" "the other race" "A little too sure about himself, maybe" "and white" Obama is following his pastor the "rev wright's" racist teachings to hate the "white race".

If you are a black person I would like to know if you think I am a racist if I substituted the word "white" for "black". If you say ok go ahead and do it. I would say you to are a racist just like obama. If you said, no don't change the word "white" to "black" because that would be racist you would be admitting obama is a RACIST. Think about the two words if substituted ",white", "black". Maybe you will begin to see obama is a racist.

ObamaCare Insurance Cooperative is a Trojan Horse

The FRAUD obama belongs in jail.

ObamaCare Insurance Cooperative is a Trojan Horse

Because of vocal public opposition, the public option is not likely to pass in the Senate so Democrats are now calling for an insurance cooperative. They would like to see a group of at least 500,000 people covered under a national plan.

An Insurance Cooperative is the same Trojan Horse of a different color for a Federal takeover of healthcare. Creating a single monolithic insurance policy is the exact opposite of what should be done. What should be done instead is a multitude of different policies in every State from which consumers in any State can choose. The proposed insurance cooperative will take the economy further away from a free-market system that functions with minimal government regulation.

An insurance cooperative will reduce competition among insurers and Federal regulators will dictate the terms of the policy and rates? The idea is not necessarily new. Insurance coops were around back in the early 1920’s. My concern is that such a large entity might be treated as is the Federal Reserve, a private corporation, or Fannie or Freddie also private corporations. No one can deny that the Federal Government actually controls these corporations. If the Federal Government regulates the insurance cooperative like they did Fannie and Freddie, we can expect the same result - redistribution of wealth, and a poor delivery system.

Co-ops are a Trojan Horse

According to today’s Washington Post, the Senate Finance Committee will soon produce a health care plan that rejects “a government-run health insurance plan in favor of a network of member-owned cooperatives.” More commonly referred to as “co-ops”, these organizations actually already have a long and proud tradition in many sectors of the U.S. economy, including health care. But Americans must be wary that our nation’s co-op tradition does not become a vehicle for government run health care.

To some the word “co-operative” may have a slight Bolshevik whiff to it, but actually a private co-op is nothing more than private individuals exercising their right to voluntarily self-associate. From farm bureaus to barn-raisers, private co-ops are part of American society. In the realm of health care, a group that organizes coverage provided by private insurers could be structured as a co-op. Or the health insurer itself could be a co-operative owned by its member policyholders. Those kind of insurance companies are called mutual insurers.

Understood in this manner, co-ops have far more to do with Edmund Burke and little platoons than with Leon Trotsky and manning the barricades. And they can be part of the health care solution.
But, don’t be fooled, Burkean little platoons are not what the Obama Administration and its allies in Congress have in mind In liberal Washington today, leaders such as Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), are talking up co-ops that would be:

• Run by the government, preferably the federal government
• Funded or subsidized by the government, or
• Includes plans chosen by the government.
A co-op with any of these three features is obviously unacceptable. A real co-op is:
• Run by its members
• Funded by its members and other private sources
• Controlled by its members

Why is the left fastening to co-ops now? Because their public plan idea—a way for the government to take over health care—has run into a buzz saw of opposition among the American people. Liberals have concluded, it seems, that there’s more than one way to skin a cat. So if the public plan was a Trojan horse for a single payer (which means a complete government take over of your health care decisions), a co-op (the way liberals mean it) is a Trojan horse for a public plan.

Congress should, of course, be empowering true local, private co-ops to be a real health choice for Americans. To do that Congress needs to amend the tax laws to do two things: Allow mutual insurance companies to be the foundation of non-profit insurance companies; and give people the same tax breaks for getting insurance from a co-op as from their employer.

None of this is, however, what some leading members of Congress have in mind when the subject of co-ops comes up.
