Breaking: House votes to defund ACORN…

No Soup for you ACORN!!!

Update: Publius at BG has the scoop:

Rep. Darrell Issa  (R-CA) offered the Defund-ACORN bill to the Student Loans bill.  The House vote convincingly to cut ALL federal funds to ACORN.

Vote: 345 to 75.  Complete results here.

Update: Roll Call vote courtesy of BG commenter wtfci. Ahh they added it in an Amendment to the Student Loan Bill changes?

Don’t tell me that 912 had no impact. Pelosi tried ignoring this last night as did the PseudoElite Intellectual Media. But 2 young Americans, Breitbart and the rest of the actual ‘mainstream’ media did their job. Critters saw all those Americans, and the calls are having an impact now. Righteous.

The franchise is dead. Long live the franchise!! Weinstein Co. to bring Halloween to 3D in 2010…

Halloween montage created by hitmanyr2kHQ

Well! I am SOOOOOOOO glad Rob Zombie did not manage to kill the franchise. It should NOT have to go out with the dreck that is the H2 remake as its last hurrah.

I have read in several places that the Weinstein Co. is having some financial issues. I think ‘Halloween’ may have the lure of the Kavorka! No seriously though I guess that is why they are turning to tried and true box office like Scream and Halloween. Whatever it takes to let the franchise recover from being ‘Zombied’, I am all for it!

SciFiWire:

Further establishing a trend for 3-D genre pictures of a kind not seen since the 1950s, Weinstein Co. co-Chairman Bob Weinstein has announced that the next movie in the rebooted Halloween franchise will be Halloween 3D, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Rob Zombie, the director of the recent Halloween and this past weekend’s strong opener Halloween II, is currently developing a second remake of The Blob and will not be attached.

Okay good news is Zombie is not involved, bad news is Zombie is going after another classic the Blob, Why? Why you do this to me Demme Zombie? The Devil’s Rejects, although not my kind of film, was clearly what he wants to do, so why keep reworking old horror/scifi and pixxing people off? Ahh maybe THAT is why, he LIKES to pixx people off and maybe doesnt get enough juice from the originals? Nah, more likely it is that dopey producers will not underwrite anything without it being YARM today….

Recall the Kevin Dillon The Blob YARM in the 80s? I mean when you are YARMING YARM you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel creatively aren’t you?

Health Care Update: MedPAC Expansion: Obama moves to control Medicare costs…and with it all private insurance benefits…

Are you ready Boomers? One year ago Hillary was pushed out of the race, now Obama has decided to do the universal mandate after all (his letter to Kennedy and Baucus makes it sound like it is HIS brilliant idea to exempt the poor with subsidies, Hillary had that in there already) AND he has accepted MAC’s plan to tax health care benefits (but no sign of the 5k tax credit Mac planned to give us)….

So Baby Boomers, many of you voted for Obama, here is his plan to control health care costs, as MiM predicted he is beginning with Medicare, you pesky expensive old people

No expensive cardiac stents and multiple admissions for YOU!

..these are called in laymens terms CUTS and DENIALS OF BENEFITS, when Megyn Kelly asked Arlen Specter about the language in the stimulus setting up a comparative effectiveness panel he swore up and down it would never ever impact Americans ability to make health care decisions with their Doctors…Specter wrong again, Obama is using existing Medicare panels to cut costs, as Ezra Klein points out below, private insurers use Medicare standards to set reimbursement rates and coverage policies so this impacts all of us, and it is behind the scenes..:

Ezra Klein:

Yesterday, at a meeting between Barack Obama and Senate Democrats from the Finance and HELP committees, that line grew up and graduated into something altogether sturdier: A policy. Senate sources confirm that the president argued in favor of a genuinely major Medicare reform — a reform that could make Medicare the nation’s most important laboratory for health care reforms.

…You probably haven’t heard of MedPAC. Most people haven’t. It stands for The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission and it’s an independent congressional agency formed in 1997 to advise the Congress on matters relating to Medicare. The commission is staffed by experts who are appointed for three-year terms, and its existence is due to a simple insight: Medicare payment policy is too technical for the Congress. There aren’t five senators with an informed opinion on the “equipment use standard” for imaging machines, much less 50, and much less 100.

But what if it didn’t? What if MedPAC had power?
