Do Democrats Think They’re Immune for Obamacare’s Fallout in 2014?
Matt Canter, the Deputy Executive Director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is fired up about Obamacare, and how it might be innocuous to Senate Democrats in 2014. Yet, could this be a sign of the hubris that sunk Republicans in 2006, 2008, 2012? After all, prior to the 2006 slaughter, the GOP was ahead of Democrats concerning targeting voters and digital strategy. Remember Voter | Read More »

Really, Lets Not Repeal Obamacare
Paul Ryan released his outline of the GOP budget proposal yesterday and I couldn’t help cringing when I heard the news report: “Ryan’s budget proposal would also repeal Obamacare” (paraphrased). I can’t imagine there’s much in the actual proposal that I disagree with but I’ve always been uncomfortable with the idea of “repeal”. Not in principle mind you. Obamacare is a public-policy black box. In | Read More »
The drive to defund ObamaCare: doomed, but useful
House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) is at it again, producing one of those antiquated “budget” documents that seem so painfully square to hip, swinging, money-no-object, deficit-reduction-means-tax-increases Democrats. Washington stopped producing anything resembling the conventionally understood accounting instrument of “budgets” many years ago (you know, the green-eyeshade stuff where assets equal liabilities, and income more or less covers expenses) but even the silly deficit-riddled | Read More »
“Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 29
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out; let’s talk politics in 10 minutes or less. Tens of thousands marched in a huge anti-abortion protest in Washington, DC. You’re forgiven if you didn’t know about it. ABC and CBS couldn’t be bothered to mention it at all. (NBC did give all of it 15 seconds, so there’s that.) The “Affordable Care Act” is | Read More »
Time to Pursue Conservative Health Care Reform
By Ed Willing Since the Supreme Court’s infamous 4-1-4 ruling on the Affordable Care Act in June, nearly two dozen states have grappled with whether or not to comply with the first of many forthcoming deadlines found in the rules written (and still being written) by the functionally unconstitutional entity known as the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). November 16th is the deadline, | Read More »

It was The State of Alabama, under Governor Wallace in the 1960’s who helped caused Federalism to fall into disrepute at the expense of the American commonweal. It is perhaps only fitting that a governor of Alabama do what is necessary to reinstate Federalism as a valuable weapon by which America resists totalism and tyranny that overcome less robust systems of national governance than our own. Governor Robert Bentleytook to the social media to plant the axiom that Alabama would not succumb to the constitutional travesty that is Obamacare. He tweeted the following:

Alabama will not establish a Health Insurance Exchange and We will not expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
Federalism Isn’t Dead
By Ed Willing Constitutionalists were far from confident that either result of the recent Presidential election would help restore the Founders’ intentions, but many were hoping that an Obama loss would at least slow the extinction. Especially in regard to Obamacare, Conservatives have put a lot of weight on winning federal elections to save what is left of our waning Republic. After a frustrating, suspect | Read More »

Follow the [European] Leader?
By Monica Frede Last week, many pundits commented on the New York Times op-ed that vindicated Sarah Palin’s infamous “death panels” that drew scrutiny from Democrats and moderate Republicans during the ObamaCare debates of 2009. See, Republicans boasted, she was right all along! Even the New York Times admits that there will be rationing. Yes, Steven Rattner did write in his op-ed that “unless | Read More »

Crestina Martinez Wasted Taxpayer Dollars on Failing Health Coverage Program
Mailers from the Martinez Campaign claim the candidate “worked to decrease uninsured rates and recruit employers to provide healthcare to workers in six counties.” According to reports available at the Division of Insurance, however, CarePoint covers just 116 residents in the San Luis Valley area — a mere 2.4 percent of coverage that was promised when the government program that funds CarePoint was first expanded.
