    What Bush Will Say, What You Should Know

    Article II, Section 3 of the United States Constitution says: "The President shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." Tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET, President Bush will do just that, delivering his fifth State of the Union address.
    http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitut...i.html#section

    Here is what to expect and what you need to know.

    Alternative Energy

    What Bush Will Say: "I agree with Americans who understand being hooked on foreign oil is an economic problem and a national security problem."

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/...le1248952.shtm

    What You Need to Know: For five years, President Bush has consistently
    steered the nation away from alternative fuels and towards greater
    dependence on polluting imported fossil fuels.

    BUSH HAS INCREASED DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL: http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/mer/pdf/pages/sec1_15.pdf Sixty-six percent of oil consumed in the United States comes from foreign sources, up from 58 percent in 2000. Americans now spend $200,000 a minute on foreign oil, and more than $25 billion annually goes to Persian Gulf states for oil imports.

    BUSH ENERGY BILL CONTAINED LITTLE ON RENEWABLE ENERGY:
    http://select.nytimes.com/gst/abstra...AE0894DD404482
    The energy bill supported and signed by President Bush dropped a provision that would have required utilities "to generate at least 10 percent of their electricity through renewable fuels by 2020."Â? The proposal, championed by Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM), was "was a low-cost, market-driven approach to cutting demand for fossil fuels and easing air pollution."

    BUSH ENERGY BILL WILL NOT REDUCE RELIANCE ON FOREIGN OIL:
    http://www.democrats.reform.house.go...4801-76366.pdf
    The same energy bill failed to take any steps that will substantively reduce America's dependence on foreign oil. Specifically, the final version "rejected a Senate provision that required reduction of oil consumption by one million barrels per day by 2015." Under the bill, "our need for imported oil will continue to grow for as long as models are able to project."

    Warrantless Domestic Spying

    What Bush Will Say: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea.../20060126.html

    What You Need to Know: President Bush's warrantless domestic spying program undermines the fight against terrorists and violates the law.

    LAWLESS SPYING THREATENS LEGITIMATE TERRORIST INVESTIGATIONS: When laws are broken, the legal system imposes consequences. Revelations about the National Security Agency wiretapping program throw into doubt a wide range of investigations and prosecutions in the fight against terrorism. In criminal cases that can put terrorists behind bars, judges now have to worry that evidence was based on illegal wiretaps. According to several FISA judges quoted by the Washington Post, there are serious concerns that "legally suspect information" acquired through warrantless surveillance was used to obtain FISA warrants, potentially rendering the warrants illegitimate. More broadly, convicted terrorists will be emboldened to challenge their prosecutions, perhaps giving them the opportunity to operate freely once again. Washington Post, 12/21/05
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...122102326.html

    LAWLESS SPYING WASTES VALUABLE INVESTIGATIVE RESOURCES: According to the New York Times, a massive amount of time and resources were devoted to the warrantless domestic spying program but obtained minimal results. The FBI was bombarded with long lists of phone numbers generated by the NSA program. According to a senior prosecutor: "It affected the F.B.I. in the sense that they had to devote so many resources to tracking every single one of these leads, and, in my experience, they were all dry leads." Long after 9/11, "the N.S.A. material continued to be viewed as unproductive, prompting agents to joke that a new bunch of tips meant more calls to Pizza Hut."
    New York Times, 1/17/06
    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/17/po...bfa8d1&ei=5070

    LAWLESS SPYING THREATENS THE CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES:
    The Bush Administration is claiming executive power far beyond our historical understanding. Among recent examples: the administration claims it can wiretap without a warrant in the United States, contrary to federal law (FISA); it can torture, contrary to international law and the recent McCain Anti-Torture Amendment; and it can hold a U.S. citizen in detention forever, with no judicial review, simply because the President labels the citizen an "enemy combatant." These positions constitute a direct attack by the executive branch on the checks and balances designed to protect our
    nation's democracy.


    Making Tax Cuts Permanent

    What Bush Will Say: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea.../20060126.html
    "Of course, we'll talk about fiscal policy in my State of the Union, talking about the Congress to be wise about how we spend the people's money and to make the tax cuts permanent."

    What You Need to Know: Making President Bush's tax cuts permanent would harm the economy and worsen the nation's poor fiscal health.

    TAX CUTS WILL COST $3.4 TRILLION OVER TEN YEARS: The cost of making the tax cuts permanent will be $3.4 trillion through fiscal year 2015, according to Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates. This includes the cost of extending the Alternative Minimum Tax relief associated with these tax cuts.
    Congressional Budget Office, 1/26/06
    http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/70xx/doc7...getOutlook.pdf

    DEFICITS CAUSED BY TAX CUTS NEGATE ANY POTENTIAL ECONOMIC BENEFITS: Studies by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JTC), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and CBO all confirm that deficits undermine economic benefits of the cuts. In their analysis of the 2003 tax cuts, JTC found that any economic benefits of the tax cuts would "eventually likely to be outweighed by the reduction in national savings due to increasing Federal government deficits." Four of the five models they used showed a negative effect on real GDP by the next decade, while the fifth showed no impact at all. CBO and OECD studies confirmed the tax cuts would raise deficits and hurt growth.
    American Progress analysis, 1/26/05
    http://www.americanprogress.org/atf/...TU_ECONOMY.PDF

    Congressional Budget Office, October 2005
    http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/67xx/doc6792/10-18-Tax.pdf


    PERMANENT TAX CUTS OVERWHELMINGLY FAVOR THE WEALTHIEST: Estimates based on data from the Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center show that if the tax cuts are made permanent, the top 1 percent of households will gain an average of $71,420 a year when the tax cuts are fully in effect, reflecting a 6.5 percent change in their after-tax income. By contrast, people in the middle of the income spectrum would secure just a 2.1 percent increase in their after-tax income, with average tax cuts of
    $870.

    Katrina Reconstruction

    What Bush Will Say:
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea.../20060126.html
    "I'm going to remind people we show the character and compassion of America by taking focused action...to help devastated areas of our country that have been -- areas that have been devastated by natural disasters."

    What You Need to Know: The Bush administration has bungled the reconstruction efforts and is failing to support New Orleans' reconstruction plan.

    KATRINA RECONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN SLOW AND BUNGLED:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...121501427.html
    If New Orleans is to thrive, let alone survive, people must be able to return. They cannot do so under current conditions. The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson accurately notes, "the longer the city sits empty and ruined, the less likely its renaissance becomes. Who but the president can break the logjam?"
    http://www.forbes.com/home/feeds/ap/...ap2447202.html
    Whole sections of New Orleans still "resemble a moonscape," and only around one-fifth of the city's original population has resettled. Despite Bush's claims that New Orleans is "a heckuva place to bring your family," many "neighborhoods still are abandoned wastelands of uninhabitable homes and sidewalks piled with moldy garbage."

    KATRINA RECONSTRUCTION FUNDING HAS BEEN TAINTED BY POLITICS:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/05/na...0ff7a3&ei=5070
    The $29 billion in aid passed last month was tainted by politics: the package "gave
    Mississippi about five times as much per household in housing aid as Louisiana
    received," a "testimony to the clout" of Bush's political ally, conservative Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R).

    ADMINISTRATION REJECTED RECONSTRUCTION PLAN: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea.../20060126.html
    President Bush said at last week's press conference, "It's important for New Orleans and the state of Louisiana to work together to develop a state recovery plan. ... The plan for Louisiana hasn't come forward yet." In fact, Louisiana did come up with a
    plan - which the White House rejected. Rather than supporting the "most broadly
    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/30/op...30mon1.html?hp supported plan for rebuilding communities," Bush instead backed $6.2 billion in block grants that Congress provided last year. Rep. Richard Baker (R-LA), whose legislation would have established the Louisiana Development Corp. to purchase flood-damaged property, called the block grants "unacceptable." "Clearly the $6 billion isn't enough," he said. "It ignores the vital recovery in the parishes of Orleans, St. Bernard, Cameron and parts of Plaquemines."

    WHITE HOUSE STONEWALLING KATRINA INVESTIGATIONS: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/11042133/
    Congressional investigations into the administration's inadequate response to Katrina have stalled because the "Bush White House is now refusing to turn over Hurricane Katrina related documents or make senior officials available for testimony." Recent news reports revealed that only days before Katrina hit, "the White House received detailed warnings about the storm's likely impact, including eerily prescient predictions of breached levees, massive flooding, and major losses of life and property."
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...012301711.html
    One House investigator said the committee will find a "disturbing inability by
    the White House to de-conflict and analyze information," but with the White House stonewalling the investigations with claims of executive privilege, the administration's mistakes will not be known for years to come. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/28/na...katrina.html?h



    The Truth About Health Savings Accounts

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/29/po...&ei=5094&en=fa

    President Bush will use the State of the Union address to promote "health savings accounts" as a solution to America's health care crisis. Health savings accounts (HSAs) were dramatically expanded in the 2003 Medicare prescription drug bill. Generally speaking, they are tax-free savings accounts combined with high-deductible insurance policies that people obtain through their employers or buy independently from insurance companies. "In exchange for paying at least the first $1,050 of their medical expenses each year (or for families, a deductible of the first $2,100), consumers are supposed to benefit in two ways: lower monthly premiums and the ability to put pretax dollars into a savings account that grows tax-free." But, multiple studies http://www.cmwf.org/publications/pub...?doc_id=274002 have shown that HSAs are likely to increase the number of uninsured and increase health care costs, http://press.arrivenet.com/politics/...hp/729495.html all while costing taxpayers http://www.cbpp.org/5-10-04health-pr.htm tens of billions of dollars. In other words, President Bush is proposing to do for health care what he's already tried with Social Security -- placing more of the cost burden on individuals, while making the system more attractive to the wealthy but less effective for ordinary Americans who need health coverage most.

    Re: What Bush Will Say, What You Should Know

    HSAs WILL NOT ADDRESS INCREASING RATE OF UNINSURED AMERICANS: According to the Commonwealth Fund, health savings accounts are "not likely to be an important contributor to expanding coverage among uninsured people" because most of uninsured Americans "do not face high-enough marginal tax rates to benefit substantially from the tax deductibility of HSA contributions." Another study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that Bush's proposal "would induce some currently uninsured individuals to purchase insurance, but also would encourage some employers to drop health insurance or to reduce the amounts they contribute toward their employees' health insurance costs, since employers would know their workers could get a tax deduction if they purchased coverage on their own. The number of people who would lose coverage due to actions that their employers would take would likely exceed the number of uninsured people who would gain insurance."
    Commonwealth Fund, April 2005; http://www.cmwf.org/publications/pub...?doc_id=274002

    Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, 5/10/04
    http://www.cbpp.org/5-10-04health-pr.htm

    LOW- AND MIDDLE-INCOME AMERICANS GAIN LITTLE OR NO TAX SAVINGS FROM HSAs:
    "Low- and middle-income uninsured people will gain meager or no tax savings" from health savings accounts, according to a Commonwealth Fund study. Currently, roughly 50 percent of uninsured adults pay no federal income taxes, meaning that "tax incentives for high-deductible health plans would have little impact on uninsured adults." Moreover, "uninsured people in the middle income tax bracket would see potential savings of just 3 percent to 6 percent on a typical high-deductible health plan premium of $2,000."
    HealthDay News, 4/20/05 http://www.medicinenet.com/script/ma...ticlekey=46798

    Commonwealth Fund, April 2005 http://www.cmwf.org/publications/pub...?doc_id=274002

    HSA USERS PAY MORE OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS: Individuals with "consumer-driven"
    health plans (CDHPs) and high-deductible insurance plans (HDHPs) are "more
    likely to spend a larger share of their income on out-of-pocket health care
    costs plus premiums than those in comprehensive health plans. According to
    one study, "more than two-fifths (42 percent) of individuals with HDHPs and
    3 in 10 (31 percent) in CDHPs spent 5 percent or more of their income on
    out-of-pocket costs plus premiums in the past year, compared with about 1 in
    10 (12 percent) in comprehensive health plans."
    Commonwealth Fund/Employee Benefit Research Institute, December 2005
    http://press.arrivenet.com/politics/...hp/729495.html

    HSAs COULD COST TAXPAYERS $41 BILLION OVER TEN YEARS: The health savings
    accounts envisioned by President Bush will cost American taxpayers roughly
    $41 billion over ten years, according to government studies. The Bush
    administration estimates that the provision of the Medicare drug bill that
    established health savings accounts will cost $16 billion over the next
    decade. President Bush has also proposed an additional tax deduction on the
    accounts, which both the Bush administration and the Joint Committee on
    Taxation estimate will cost roughly $25 billion over the same period.
    Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, 5/10/04
    http://www.cbpp.org/5-10-04health-pr.htm

    HSA USERS MORE LIKELY TO AVOID, SKIP, OR DELAY HEALTH CARE BECAUSE OF COSTS:
    Individuals with "consumer-driven" health plans (CDHPs) and high-deductible health plans (HDHPs) -- both elements of health savings accounts -- "were significantly more likely to avoid, skip, or delay health care because of costs than were those with comprehensive insurance, with problems particularly pronounced among those with health problems or incomes under $50,000." According to one study, "about one-third of individuals in CDHPs (35 percent) and HDHPs (31 percent) reported delaying or avoiding care, compared with 17 percent of those in comprehensive health plans."
    Commonwealth Fund/Employee Benefit Research Institute, December 2005
    http://press.arrivenet.com/politics/...hp/729495.html

    HSA USERS MORE LIKELY TO HAVE DIFFICULTY PAYING MEDICAL BILLS: Individuals with high-deductible insurance plans (HDHPs), which are mandatory with health savings accounts, are "more likely than those with traditional medical coverage to have difficulty paying their medical bills. Forty-nine percent of consumers with deductibles above $500 per year wound up with outstanding medical debt, vs. 32% with regular coverage."
    WebMD Medical News, 1/27/05
    http://www.webmd.com/content/article...?printing=true

    HSAs WILL UNDERMINE EMPLOYER-BASED HEALTH CARE SYSTEM: The current policy of promoting high deductible plans (including the proposal for a new tax deduction for individual high-deductible policies) will weaken the employer-based health care system by providing employers with financial incentives to "cash-out" health benefits, sending employees to the individual market. This market cherry-picks the healthy and creates barriers to coverage for the sick. In other words, this policy undermines the purpose of insurance (whether health, homeowners, car, or any other type), which is to pool risk. With most health insurance -- employer coverage, Medicare, and most other countries' systems -- the healthy subsidize the unhealthy, to ensure that overall premiums are reasonable and that everyone covered by the plan receives the health benefits they need when they get sick. Outside factors such as heredity, the environment, and plain luck also play a role, even among those of us who eat healthfully, exercise faithfully, and keep stress to a minimum.
    American Progress, 8/11/04
    http://www.americanprogress.org/site...8OVF&b=1389573
    Commonwealth Fund, April 2005
    http://www.cmwf.org/publications/pub...?doc_id=274002

    COST SAVINGS ARE ILLUSORY: HSAs are supposed to save costs by discouraging people from obtaining unnecessary health care. But about 70 percent of costs in the U.S. health system are for the top 10 percent most expensive people. These people's costs are well above the deductible and are usually require hospitalization or are chronically illy. A high deducible won't change their behavior.
    New Yorker, 8/29/05 http://www.newyorker.com/printables/fact/050829fa_fact

    HSA EXPERIMENTS HAVE FAILED IN OTHER COUNTRIES: Just as Americans learned of the pitfalls of Social Security privatization from experiences in Chile and the UK, so we can learn about the flaws of President Bush's health care proposals from South Africa and Singapore, which both implemented versions of HSAs. A study by the Harvard School of Public Health analyzed the health savings accounts enacted in Singapore and found they had "caused financial hardship for Singapore's citizens and...adversely affected the cost-effectiveness of its health care system." Likewise, in South Africa, which has "a decade's worth of experience with similar consumer-driven health plans," the cost of specialty care has increased 43 percent, the cost of hospital care is up 65 percent, and uninsured rates have "continued to grow rapidly."

    Re: What Bush Will Say, What You Should Know

    Under the Radar

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/30/po...dget.html?_r=2
    BUDGET -- BUDGET BILL WILL CUT HEALTH CARE FOR MILLIONS OF POOR PEOPLE:
    Millions of low-income people will have to pay more for health care and many will have to drop out of Medicaid all together because of higher co-payments and premiums in a bill on which the House will vote on Feb. 1, according to the Congressional http://www.cbo.gov/showdoc.cfm?index=7028&sequence=0 Budget Office (CBO). The Deficit Reduction Act passed the Senate last December with a tie-breaking
    http://www.boston.com/news/nation/wa...on_the_budget/ vote by Vice President Cheney. In this bill, about 13 million people -- 20 percent of Medicaid recipients – will face higher co-payments on doctor's visits and hospital care, and by 2010, approximately 13 million people will have to pay higher costs for prescription drugs. "About one-third of those affected would be children, and almost half would be individuals with income below the poverty level," the report said. Another 1.6 million beneficiaries will see their Medicaid benefits scaled back by 2015. Additionally, penalties will stiffen for wealthy seniors who attempt to defraud the government by transferring money to different accounts to "appear poor." "But critics say many
    http://www.boston.com/yourlife/healt...eniors/?page=1 needy seniors may be denied coverage because they gave a modest gift to a child or a charity as much as five years before they applied for Medicaid."

    HEALTH CARE -- DRAFTERS OF MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG BILL BENEFIT FROM REVOLVING DOOR: The new Medicare prescription drug program has shown itself to be unnecessarily complicated and costly. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) said the problems have resulted because "the
    http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2006..._261_28_06.txt program was turned over to hundreds of private insurers who can charge what they want, cover what drugs they want, and change what they cover at will." Bloomberg reports that the health insurance industry was given such a large role as a result of questionable ethics practices on the part of the drafters of the bill. "Fifteen lawmakers, congressional aides and Bush administration officials who pushed through the costliest Medicare overhaul in history http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=a1f3siSIvyWU began working for the health-care industry within a year of the measure's passage." Chief among the offenders is former Medicare administrator Thomas Scully, who shepherded the drug bill into law and then subsequently joined Alston & Bird, a law firm that received $1 million between January 2004 and June 2005 from clients to lobby on the implementation of the plan. "Besides Scully, Alston & Bird brought in Timothy Trysla, a former senior policy adviser at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; and two former Senate Finance Committee aides, counsel Colin Roskey and health-policy adviser Jennifer Bell. Trysla, Roskey and Bell are also registered to lobby on the Medicare bill, disclosure reports show."

    NATIONAL SECURITY -- BUSH ADMINISTRATION SHOWS LESS URGENCY IN DISRUPTING TERRORIST FINANCES: In October 2005, President Bush signed the Homeland Security Appropriations Act for 2006 claiming the Department has had great success in cutting of the flow of terrorist assets. "We http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea...0051018-2.html disrupted terrorist planning and financing, as a result of the reforms," said Bush. In fact, USA http://www.usatoday.com/news/washing...-freezes_x.htm
    Today reports, "The amount of assets frozen by U.S. anti-terrorism units is declining dramatically each year, prompting a former Bush administration official who helped oversee the program to suggest that a 'lack of urgency' is hurting efforts to block terrorist fundraising." In the 16 weeks after 9/11, 157 suspected terrorism fundraisers were identified and assets valued at $68 million were frozen. In contrast, for the entire year of 2005, 32 suspects or organizations had approximately $4.9 million in assets frozen.

    SCIENCE -- BUSH ADMINISTRATION MUZZLES SCIENTISTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE: Throughout his term, President Bush has repeatedly questioned http://observer.guardian.co.uk/inter...153513,00.html whether climate change exists. But it seems he and his administration have gone a step further -- silencing scientists who speak out on the issue. The Bush administration has tried to stop James E. Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, "from
    http://nytimes.com/2006/01/29/scienc...rtner=homepage speaking out since he gave a lecture last month calling for prompt reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases linked to global warming." NASA officials ordered reviews of his lectures, papers, and interview requests. George Deutsch, one of the officials appointed to review Hansen's work, rejected a National Public Radio request to interview Hansen, calling it "the most liberal" media outlet in the country and saying that Hansen's job was "to make the president look good." In a weekend Washington Post article where Hansen was quoted on whether or not the world is about to reach a "tipping point" on climate change, the reporter noted that "NASA
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...012801021.html officials tried to discourage a reporter from interviewing Hansen for this article and later insisted he could speak on the record only if an agency spokeswoman listened in on the conversation."

    INTELLIGENCE -- U.S. COVERT PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN IN IRAQ MAY BE VIOLATION: The U.S. military has defended its practice of secretly http://www.latimes.com/news/printedi...2.story?page=1 paying Iraqi newspapers to print favorable stories written by American troops. "The
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...30/AR200511300 1876_2.html realities of the environment here demand something more ambitious than people might understand," said one officer in Iraq. But a newly declassified Oct. 2003 Information http://www.gwu.edu/%7Ensarchiv/NSAEB...B177/index.htm Operations Roadmap, personally approved by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, suggests that this practice may be a violation of Pentagon rules. The Roadmap "appears
    http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...eadlines-world to prohibit U.S. troops from conducting psychological operations, or psy-ops, targeting the media." "It's clearly a violation based on the language used in the Rumsfeld document," said one Pentagon official.

    Well, at least I can now ditch the democratic rebuttal that follows the State of the Union speech. Thanks for the talking points, you just saved me five minutes of my precious time. It wasn't going to be Reid or Pelosi this time either but nevertheless, I still won't make myself sit through it! Thanx again, you've preformed a decent service for the forum!

    CTM (chuckling to myself) Poor Raider is still under the delusion that it's a Repuglican/ Democrat issue and not an American crisis.

    The government likes stupid people, it's why they work so hard to "dumb down" Americans. In ten years, they will all be even worse than Raider, he's just one of the first successful experiments. (It's that or someone held his head in the toilet too long when he was in gym class during his teens.) :eek:

    Lol!! I've often enjoyed your playful yet elegant witticisms used in the service of Democracy and dare I say, simple common sense. In this respect you rarely disappoint.
    As for Beavis and Buthead…. Or as some here know them Raider and pwrone, I just don’t have the time to trash them as they justly deserve.
    I think it’s clear that they are spending far too much time sitting on the sofa watching Fux News. Between shoveling cheese doodles in their face, screaming at the Tele and abusing themselves into a psychotic frenzy it is a wonder they can even find the time to pound away at the keyboard to leave us with their many entertaining missives.

    A retraction is in order. I just watched the rebuttal and I was sincerely amazed! The esteemed governor was proved pretty much impudent; it was blatantly laughable. I kind of feel embarrassed for the ole bloke, but I felt a glee when I learned his tells.

    Every time the guy was telling fibs, he gleaned a smarmy, snaky, dimpled smile similar to Howie Dean. I felt unnerved at first until I figured out his quandary. How can someone lie flat out to the American people without letting loose with a huge visual of sneakiness? Please watch the rebuttal everybody; it's at least comical and even moreso - telling to the lengths that the dumocrats are willing to go to lie some more. I laughed so hard, I almost split a gut! Good times - good times - thanks.
