On Tuesday, Sen. Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released his health care proposal which will be considered by the full committee next week. The plan contains more of the same big government policies that have been proposed by this Congress and Obama Administration for months. It does nothing to increase Americans’ access to affordable health care coverage. In fact, the Baucus plan includes several devastating provisions that hurt the ability of millions of Americans to keep the coverage they currently have (and like).

Moreover, the combination of tax increases, penalties, new government health care programs, increased fees on private health care entities, and destruction of current health care coverage products will force this nation into the grip of a government-run health care system. Here are 11 things you should know about Baucus' proposal:

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Three U.S. Sens. today expressed outrage that the Obama Administration has cancelled a third missile defense site scheduled to be deployed in Poland and the Czech Republic:

"I have long viewed the deployment of a layered ballistic missile defense as an urgent priority, vital to the future of our country's national security," said U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a senior member of the Armed Services committee and a member of the Foreign Relations Committee.  "The Obama's Administration's decision to cancel the third missile defense site scheduled to be deployed in Poland and the Czech Republic is short-sighted and leaves America and our allies vulnerable to the growing missile threat from Iran.  Iran has developed short and medium range missiles capable of hitting targets in the Middle East and southeastern Europe.  Our only true defense is an effective layered defensive capability to shoot down ballistic missiles that threaten this country, our allies and our deployed forces around the globe."

DeMint: ‘We Have Got to Stop the Takeover of Healthcare.’

Greenville County Republican Women and their guests gave Senator Jim DeMint a hero’s welcome when he arrived to speak at their luncheon Monday at the Poinsett Club.

GCRWC President Geri Warren introduced DeMint as “the true leader of the Conservative movement leading the fight against that liberal firestorm that is trying to destroy capitalism and lead our country down the path of socialism.”

The three-hundred people attending the luncheon joined Warren in a lengthy standing ovation when she commended DeMint for having “consistently and effectively fought for the values that we treasure in South Carolina such as individual liberty, smaller government, a strong national defense and our traditional values.”

U.S. Rep. Joe WilsonCongressman Joe Wilson Lets it Fly!

Joe Wilson could sit quietly no longer. President Barack Obama speaking before a Joint Session of Congress was calling Republicans who disagreed with his efforts to put the medical care of Americans under control of the federal bureaucracy either by controlling insurance companies or creating a government operated system “blatant liars.”

Wilson yelled out: “You lie!”

Obama appeared stunned for a moment, and then continued his lecture.

“Somewhere Between One and Two Million”

Fox News rising star Glenn Beck launched the 9-12 project to energize and give direction to Americans who were awakening to growing problems in government but didn’t know what to do.

Patriotic groups from across the country picked up the idea of marching on Washington on September 12, the day following the anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States eight years ago. Their motivation was mostly to send a message to a government that is out-of-control, a government that is spending future generations into hopeless debt, even if the nation’s financial structure can survive. They were protesting a government that is not only failing to spend the taxpayers money responsibly, they are failing to protect the borders and, finally, attempting to impose a takeover of medical care in some form yet to be clearly described.
