Live Coverage of Harry Reid’s Bumbling Press Conference
Sean broke mid-programming to cover Harry Reid’s press conference announcing an opt-out provision to ObamaCare’s government option. “Here we are at this late hour talking about the government option with an opt-out provision for states and does anyone have a clue what it means,” questioned Sean. Harry Reid announced today that a new compromise is being created that will allow states to opt-out of a government option plan. “This is just messed up royally,” commented Sean, “all of this is simply a compilation of special interests that they’re trying to appease so they can get something passed and save some face.” It certainly seems that no one is really close to a compromise which leads back to the original question; shouldn’t the private sector be left alone to find a solution to America’s healthcare crisis? It would happen a lot faster and a lot cheaper. {Article - Fox News}

Bruce Josten: White House v. U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Bruce Josten, joined Sean on the NewsMaker hotline to discuss the ongoing battle that seems to be growing between the Obama administration and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The attacks from the White House have suggested that they intend to quote ‘neuter’ us – marginalize us,” argued Bruce as he told about the increased growth within the Chamber, “we’ve added a few large companies to our ranks in the recent months.” It seems that the White House enemy list continues to grow and, like Fox News, the Chamber is simply capitalizing on these attacks. “I applaud you in your efforts to stay strong,” said Sean, “from my stand point, these attacks don’t intimidate me at all and it actually serves to motivate me.” It’s clear that the Chamber is following Sean’s guidance. {Article -}

NY’s 23rd District Race: Should RHINO’s Win?
Should we support republicans because they’re republicans? Sean doesn’t think so. In New York’s 23rd Congressional district the race is on to replace Republican Congressman John McHugh. Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, one of a handful of New York republicans to openly support President Obama’s stimulus package, is taking on liberal businessman Bill Owens and conservative candidate Doug Hoffman. Doug joined Sean on the show to discuss the upcoming special election slated for next week. “Are you as disappointed with the republican party,” asked Sean, “How did a liberal get nominated by the republican party.” “I’m not sure exactly how it happened but that’s why I’m in the race,” Hoffman continued, “I felt, as a common sense conservative, that the voters needed a choice.” The good news? Recent polls are suggesting that Hoffman is leading the race! It could be that the 2010 revolution is beginning already! {Article - Club For Growth}

Doug Hoffman

Doug Hoffman is a product of upstate New York. The second of four children, he was raised by a single mother in Saranac Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Park. At an early age Doug started working to help his mother pay the bills. By the time he was fourteen he was pumping gas at a local service station and in his free time he’d help out the mechanics. Before he turned sixteen he had totally rebuilt a 1955 Chevrolet which was to be was to become his first car and the first example of the grit, determination, and “can do” attitude that has led Doug through life. Though he graduated near the top of his class at Saranac Regional High, his future looked bleak. He simply could not afford the cost of a college education, but local business and civic leaders believed in him and soon raised the scholarship money he needed. Over the course of his undergraduate career Doug attended North Country Community College, SUNY Canton and graduated in 1973 from SUNY Plattsburgh with a... More >
