Quotes of the day

posted at 10:50 pm on March 1, 2011 by Allahpundit

“A coalition of progressive Christian leaders has taken out a full-page ad that asks ‘What would Jesus cut?’ in Monday’s edition of Politico, the opening salvo in what the leaders say will be a broader campaign to prevent cuts for the poor and international aid programs amid the budget battle raging in Washington.

“‘They’re talking about cutting bed nets for malaria and leaving every piece of military spending untouched,’ said the Rev. Jim Wallis, who leads the Christian group Sojourners, referring to Republican spending proposals for the rest of this year.

“‘Are we saying that every piece of military equipment is more important than bed nets, children’s health and nutrition for low-income families?’ said Wallis, whose group paid for Monday’s ad. ‘If so they should be ashamed of themselves.’”

***
“There is no doubt we must get our fiscal house in order. It’s not optional. But the fact is that the money spent on U.S. anti-poverty programs makes a great deal more difference to low-income families than it would to reducing the deficit. The amounts add up to a drop in a sea of red budget ink. But for millions of low-income Americans, they mean the difference between running out of food before the end of the month, and eating well enough to do one’s best at school or work…

“When Jesus talked about how God will judge nations, he said God will focus on what we did or did not do for the neediest among us. Taking care of ‘the least of these’ should be among our nation’s top priorities. It should not be among the first of our responsibilities in line for cuts.

“I urge Congress not to attempt to balance the budget at the expense of vulnerable people. It won’t solve the problem, and it’s not what Jesus would do.”

***
“Even though the 533 billion dollar military budget is the elephant in the room and the gushing, bleeding wound of America’s deficit … it has been the sacred cow. But folks are beginning to whisper. I’m not sure about sacred cows making good hamburgers, but I do know that military money could make some good schools. And the Bible I read gives a powerful image of beating ‘swords into plowshares’ — taking things that have brought death and converting them into things that bring life. It seems the world may be poised and ready for that kind of conversion.

“So it’s not a bad moral gauge — What Would Jesus Do? Who Would Jesus Bomb? What Would Jesus Cut? The Jesus who loved the poor, challenged the rich, made friends with enemies, and healed the sick. So let’s ask it – WWJC? And let’s hope the politicians who claim to follow the Christ who carried good news for the poor will ask this little question as the debate goes on.”

***
“What these ‘progressive’ Christian leaders are doing is committing the same error that some on the so-called Religious Right did, which is to pretend that Scripture can be reduced to a governing blueprint. (In this instance, we’re asked to imagine Jesus as a liberal, big-spending director of the Office of Management and Budget.) The temptation of politically active people of faith is to simplistically connect dots, insisting that certain biblical principles self-evidently translate into particular public policies…

“The Christian ethicist Paul Ramsey wrote, ‘Identification of Christian social ethics with specific partisan proposals that clearly are not the only ones that may be characterized as Christian and as morally acceptable comes close to the original New Testament meaning of heresy.’

“That is what Wallis & Company are engaging in. To argue that their form of liberalism has the imprimatur of Jesus — and to argue the necessary corollary, which is that those who want to return spending levels to their pre-stimulus levels are being unfaithful to the commands of their Lord — is arrogant and harmful. It reduces faith to a political weapon. In their partisan zeal, these Christian leaders are discrediting the very faith they insist they are defending.”

***
“Yes, this debt is a mortal threat to our country. It is also a moral threat. It is immoral to bind our children to as leeching and destructive a force as debt. It is immoral to rob our children’s future and make them beholden to China. No society is worthy that treats its children so shabbily.”

what’s interesting about ESRD and Medicare is that many in the dialysis community see this as the first great victory of single payer. Because ESRD was specifically included early on many lives were saved because the cost was prohibitive for most people.

However over the years the cost has been enormous, taking a big chuck out of the Medicare budget every year. Cost per person is 50K+. So CMS (and previous entities) cut back on the amounts paid. (there is great bitterness in some parts of the community about the for-profit providers). And now there’s great efforts aimed at reducing the payments for EPO and other drugs because they cost so much and (they argue) are over prescribed.

I believe that the per person payment is now less than it was 20 years ago. Here’s the bad news. The US has rather poor outcomes relative to Europe in various metrics.

Hmmmmm…so anyway, it turns out that ESRD is probably a great model for single payer. Starts out saving lives…and over the years starts slashing and burning.

Don’t even ask was Zeke Emanuel would say about spending 50K per year on a 65 year old.

By “great model,” I gather you mean to say it’s a great way to model how disastrous single-payer health care would be.

And Ed made it sound like he had everything under control with his private insurance until government started mucking it up. Go figure.

yes indeed…that’s what I meant. I find it very interesting how many dialysis activist are ardently single payer. On the one hand I can understand because of the fantastic and recurring expense. On the other hand, they seem oblivious to the problem of paying enough to get Neurologists and nurses and techs and modern equipment, etc.

It is a difficult subject…and an opportunity for catastrophic insurance pooling of some sort. The only hope is some Adult Stem Cell solution to build a kidney that avoids rejection.

“Catastrophic insurance pooling” is a prime example of why we need government out of the business of health insurance altogether. Throw off the shackles, and you will almost instantly solve every problem that Obama and Teddy Kennedy ever claimed to want to solve. Only problem is, that would devolve power away from the federal government and to the states and people. Can’t have that now, can we?/

Thomasaur’s not a troll-or am I missing something?

annoyinglittletwerp on March 2, 2011 at 1:29 AM

Did you see MM did a smack-down on both Rove and Tucker. Michelle has got lots of guts. She submits to no one. Kudos for daring to challenge the establishment.

Sorry Gohawgs.

Here you go.

Just a collection of PAB’s best Red Eye intro’s.

I agree, nothing worth being banned for, she was just so passionate. There would be times that I agreed with her but hated the way she argued her point. Different styles but not a bad person.

Yep Upstater85. How about Sven? He knew a lot of military strategery.

I recently dug-up HA’s 6month anniversary post-that’s where I left MY first comment-to see who was still here.
There are only a few of us from that post that are still ‘regulars’ or who even still comment anytime.

I think he’s a FB friend of mine-under his real name of course.

Dire Straits on March 2, 2011 at 1:32 AM

He got banned? I didn’t know that. I was just mentioning people I would like to hear from I didn’t think any of them had been banned.

Cindy Munford on March 2, 2011 at 1:34 AM

I saw him their there too. I really like him.

How could I forget Loxodonta? Both funny, philosophical and philosophically funny.

My problem was his apparent coverup/denial. If he said, he said it. Either stand by it or apologize. I haven’t seen him say anything else along those lines so, I don’t know if there is a pattern…

For the record, Tucker used to live in LR and was an asst. Editor of the Ark Dem-Gazette…

And Jinxsdad (I hope I spelled that right).
Cindy Munford on March 2, 2011 at 1:31 AM

Jianxidad, isn’t it?

OmahaConservative on March 2, 2011 at 1:36 AM

Why are conservative men such squishes?

OmahaConservative on March 2, 2011 at 1:29 AM

I hope it’s not because they live with conservative women.

Cindy Munford on March 2, 2011 at 1:37 AM

WWJD? He would:

Replace welfare with workfare, and tell those who cried ‘slavery!’ (it’s happened) to either zip their lips or take a one-way trip to Africa…

Redo the justice system top to bottom, eliminating ‘resort prisons’ entirely while focusing less on punishment and more on correction. Also, remember the verse “a rod for the backs of fools”? Expect that to be taken quite literally…

Repeal Roe V. Wade so fast the SCOTUS would think they’d been caught in a time warp…

And that’s just for starters!

Probably, I just remember that I really like when he is around. So rational and thoughtful.
