Obamacare or the Debt Ceiling
Republicans are winning the shutdown fight, and Democrats know it. People turning on the news this week came away with the knowledge that it was about Obamacare and kept hearing that Democrats wouldn’t negotiate. They also learned that for some reason the President didn’t want Word War II veterans to tour their own memorial, and Harry Reid won’t turn the funding on for cancer clinical | Read More »
Sticker Shock: Californians suddenly discover why all the Republican shouting over #Obamacare.
And BOOM goes the dynamite. Meet Tom Waschura, Californian, father of two – oh, and right: Obama supporter. Just got a letter from his healthcare provider telling him that his private health insurance just went up by ten grand a year: “I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican | Read More »
Maryland, #Obamacare, SIS BOOM BAH! 100 signups (100-minus), RAH RAH …HUH?
Thank God I am not stuck relying on the federal government in order to get health insurance. …Maryland has been at the forefront of implementing the Affordable Care Act. It established six policy work groups. It trained more than 5,000 people to help consumers enroll in new health-coverage options. When its online insurance exchange passed a critical test in the summer — one of the | Read More »
Democrats and their Budget Hypocrisy Leading to #DemocratShutdown
Throughout the past week, Democrats leaders have justified their refusal to negotiate with Republicans as a natural response to hostage taking. They claim that the fight over Obamacare is extraneous to the budget, and as such, they should not have to talk to Republicans until they agree to pass a “clean” CR. There are two points they are obfuscating in the context of the budget | Read More »

Share Obamacare With Congress
I have written several times my thinking on the Vitter Amendment. Congress will find a way around it. Word now comes that Speaker Boehner, behind the scenes, was trying to find a way to make sure, on the sly, that Congress remains exempt. I think it is important that Congress make sure we know we expect them to suffer through Obamacare with it. To that | Read More »
Next time, Democrats will take your doctor hostage
Every true “independent” voter in the United States should be clamoring for the full and immediate repeal of ObamaCare after watching a few days of Barack Obama’s Shutdown Theater. Do you really think the man who vandalized the World War II Memorial with barricades to make elderly veterans suffer will hesitate a microsecond to use your health care as leverage against you, the next time you defy | Read More »
Welcome to the Harry and Barry Shutdown Show
What a difference a sense of conviction and the presence of a Republican backbone brings to a debate in Washington. Democrats are beginning to slowly grovel back to the negotiation table, barely able to contain their show of bravado. We are now having a national discussion about Obamacare, something that would have never happened had we not chosen to fight on the budget bill. As | Read More »
This is About Shutting Down Obamacare
Congressmen, this is about shutting down Obamacare. Democrats keep talking about our refusal to compromise. They don’t realize our compromise is defunding Obamacare. We actually want to repeal it. This is it. Our endgame is to leave the whole thing shut down until the President defunds Obamacare. And if he does not defund Obamacare, we leave the whole thing shut down. After all, if the | Read More »
Annnd that is the sound of the California #Obamacare exchange going down in flames.
Via RNC Research comes this oopsie: That’s a clip on KNTV. Basically, it reports that the California Obamacare exchanges will be taken offline this evening so that Covered California can fix the problem that’s keeping people from… enrolling in the California Obamacare exchanges. Mind you, they’re claiming that the site will be ready again on October 3rd… then again, they also claimed that it’d be | Read More »
ObamaCare software is incompatible with American hardware
When you try to run software that’s incompatible with your hardware, this is what happens. ObamaCare’s failure is spectacular, and not just the coast-to-coast sharknado of error messages, system crashes, pages not found, and unresponsive technical support. The data processing problems will eventually be worked out; every computer problem can be solved, if you’re willing to spend enough time and money on the effort. The | Read More »

Tweet of the Day, Your Marital Problems Are Not My Business, @FLOTUS edition.
And I’m sorry to hear about them, Mrs. Obama. Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, updates to this account will be limited. #Shutdown — FLOTUS (@FLOTUS) October 1, 2013 I mean, it must have been awful to have your own husband tell you that you’re not an essential part of the government.

The Man Who Kept Obamacare Out of Texas
Welcome to day one of Obamacare America. One of the controversial portions of the law involves the expansion of state Medicaid programs, with strings attached of course. Twenty-Three states and the District of Columbia have agreed to institute the Medicaid expansion portion of the President’s so-called Affordable Care Act. Texas, thankfully, is not one of them. Much of the credit for that goes to someone | Read More »
