Obamacare’s Decimation of Rural Hospitals
Much has been written about the impact that Obamacare has on the healthcare consumer, focusing specifically on the effects of lost coverage, lost doctors, premium hikes, mandate penalties, and reduction in choice. These effects have already been felt and are predicted to get worse in 2015. But Obamacare is having other, more systemic effects on the economy that are just now being felt. One of | Read More »
The White House Commits to Destroying Jobs to Fight Climate Change
Environmentalists, Not Traders, Sell Your Jobs Out To China. Chinese leader Xi Jinping and President Obama struck a deal Wednesday to limit greenhouse gases, with China committing for the first time to cap carbon emissions and Obama unveiling a plan for deeper U.S. emissions reductions through 2025. China, the world’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, pledged in the far-reaching agreement to | Read More »
Here Comes President Obama’s Amnesty Plan
The President’s amnesty plan is coming. He intends to allow a lot of people who crossed the border illegally to stay in the country indefinitely. He is, in effect creating second class citizenship where people can exist in the space between daylight and the shadows with dubious status. The Republican response should be to make Camp David a refugee holding facility and close down every | Read More »
Tech at Night: The FCC punts on Net Neutrality, but Obama and the left won’t give up.
The President wants to mess with our Internet, and turn it into a socialistic program. And while the fringe left has been pushing this for months, the President’s threat in backing this power grab known as ‘Title II Reclassification,” that is deeming ISPs phone companies and passing 1930s-era stifling regulations in defiance of the bipartisan Telecommunications Act, is already scaring off investment in faster Internet..
The DSCC listened to Nate Silver*, and now they must face the consequences in LA-SEN.
Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air is wondering why there was no money allocated for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)‘s runoff: This runoff was a flat-out certainty for months, which is why the GOP and its allies planned for big spending in Louisiana past Election Day. They put money aside even while aggressively spending against Democratic incumbents — like Landrieu herself, [mc_name name=’Sen. | Read More »
The 2014 Polls And The 2012 Exit Polls
2014 was, as you have probably heard by now, not the best year for polling; even Nate Silver concluded not only that the polls were skewed to overstate the performance of Democrats, but that it was, on average, tied with 2002 as the second-worst polling year for Senate races since 1990 (the worst was 1998). That couldn’t be predicted before the election, but a major | Read More »
Why I’ve given up on polls
There has been a lot of discussion over the past week on polls and why polling for the 2014 elections was so bad. As Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics said: As Tuesday night got going, most people suspected that Republicans were headed for a good night. This, after all, was what the polls strongly suggested. Instead, they had a great night. What is odd is that, | Read More »
Follow the Money: 2014 Midterms
A week ago, voters elected a new Senate majority. In key Senate races across the country, voters made their choice on which candidates supported their values. What most people don’t know is corporations did the same. For all the post-election analysis involving mega donors such as the Koch brothers or liberal Tom Steyer, labor union get out the vote efforts, or shadowy organizations’ barrage of | Read More »
The Issues That Mattered?
Eight days ago was a sweep of an election that saw Republicans gain control of the Senate and greater control of the House. Right now, with the declaration of Dan Sullivan the winner over Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) 0% in Alaska, the Senate has 53 Republicans coming in. In Louisiana, we could see the 54th on December 6th, as [mc_name name=’Rep. Bill | Read More »
Blame WHO’s Political Activism for its Ebola Failure
Lost among the post-election hullabaloo was a great editorial in the Wall Street Journal calling out Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, for the organization’s failure to contain the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This in and of itself is nothing new. One of the casualties of the Ebola crisis has been the WHO’s credibility. The editors at the Wall Street Journal were irritated that in | Read More »

The American Voter isn’t “Stupid” – The American Voter was Lied to
The architect of ObamaCare was just caught on camera calling the American people “stupid.”
Jonathan Gruber, the principle designer of the President’s prized health care law and former paid consultant for the Obama Administration, admitted what the Left thinks about the American people, saying that the only reason that they were able to pass ObamaCare was “the stupidity of the American voter.”
But it’s not that he’s calling us “stupid” that is so outrageous; it’s that we were lied to.

…Well played, McConnell
I’ve often called Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 59% “RedState’s Leading Supervillain,” and it’s not been unwarranted either, but… damn, I respect this. BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Republicans have promised Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) 66% a seat on the Senate’s energy committee if he defeats Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in Louisiana’s runoff election next | Read More »
ObamaCare and the tyranny of lies
Ron Fournier at National Journal – a self-professed ObamaCare supporter who is still struggling mightily to pretend the disastrous health-care law was something more than a monumental act of fraud against the American people – nevertheless says all these tapes of ObamaCare architect Jon Gruber gleefully admitting lie after lie are starting to wear him down: “Those comments have struck a nerve on the right,” wrote Jose A.

The Latest Target for Obama’s Executive Actions: Global Warming
RedState readers who have been paying attention ought to be well aware by now of the Obama administration’s impending and Unconstitutional actions on illegal immigration, but that’s not the only area where he plans to unilaterally exercise his presidential powers. Now, he’s looking at what he can do on global warming. As The Politico reports: The coming rollout includes a Dec. 1 proposal by EPA to | Read More »
