Is ObamaCare Dead?
It seems that every day there are conflicting stories about Health Care coming from Capitol Hill. I would like to think that its truly dead but something in my gut just doesn’t allow me to go there. The Democrat leadership in the House and Senate have proven to the American people that they cannot be trusted and that they don’t really care what we think | Read More »
Sunlight and Simplicity!
Much of the anger generated by ObamaCare was a result of the Democrats’ cowardly attempts to sneak it past the voters. The legislation was unnecessarily complex and unnecessarily lengthy. Bad ideas were buried in intentionally mysterious language. Key votes were held at night, on weekends and on Christmas Eve. Unless Congress is dealing with some national security crisis or natural disaster, is there any excuse for voting at odd | Read More »
Congressional Democrats to AMA: Go Pound Sand
Here’s a completely unsurprising and predictable story. Do you remember how many conservatives spent months trying to figure out why the leadership of the American Medical Association signed the nation’s doctors up in support of Obamacare? Many conservatives argued that the AMA was being shortsighted – that Congressional Democrats would ultimately betray the AMA, despite the powerful group’s consistent advocacy of the president’s health care | Read More »
Time for Payback on Obamacare
Lest we forget, a lot of innocent people were left out in the cold when their purported elected leaders in the private sector sold them out in favor of personal gain (I assume) and their support of Obamacare. I’m thinking of the unions, of course, but when in recent memory has their leadership not sold them out? But how about AARP? The AMA? Big Pharma? | Read More »
Dems Strategic Posture is in a Wheel Chair
ObamaCare broke their back. The President says he will not “walk away from health care reform,” so, will he wheel away? Dem health care reform is so destructive, so toxic that everyone who touches it dies politically. Oh, and this happened last time too. But the Speaker and the President were too arrogant to respect 1994. It is like plutonium. There are dead bodies everywhere | Read More »

The Obama-Pelosi Crazy Train, in Pictures
Notwithstanding all of the damage that health care has wrought the Democrats, AP is reporting the following statement this morning: “We have to get a bill passed,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. In what could be a clear reference to the psychological state of denial, in the same AP story just below the quote from the Speaker, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) said “People are | Read More »
What A GLORIOUS Week For Patriots!
What a glorious week for patriots! * Scott Brown wins and the ‘supermajority’ melts away in the sun * With the Scott Brown lesson, the chance of RINOs defecting is greatly reduced – or even eliminated * The health care abomination is dead, dead, dead! (along with Crap & Tax, making illegals citizens, etc.) * The Supremes stand for free speech (and Schumer squeals like | Read More »
Scott Brown Backpedaling Already?
I have been wanting to write a couple of posts congratulating Scott Brown for his victory, but I think I’ll put them on hold for now until my concerns explained here are allayed. I must admit, as a committed conservative, I have my problems with supporting most New England Republicans (there are some Republicans, mainly in New Hampshire, who are exceptions to this, but not | Read More »

Bay Staters already have government-run health care, and they’ve had enough
Rick Scott deserves a lot of credit for being one of the first to raise money and fight against Obamacare. Glad to have him back for his perspective on MA. — Erick Two different post-mortems from last night’s epic election are in, here and here, and the picture is crystal-clear: stopping government-run health care was by far the number one factor in Scott Brown’s history-making | Read More »
Time to Enjoy the Effects of Brown’s Victory
For conservatives and Republicans, the next few days and weeks will be ones to savor. Scott Brown’s win yesterday will force Democrats to consider just how many seats they’re willing to lose to complete a health care bill. Jim Webb, Brad Ellsworth, Evan Bayh, Joe Lieberman, and Anthony Weiner were all willing to come out and call for a rethink yesterday – before the results | Read More »
Heineman Open to Nelson Challenge
It’s one of the cardinal rules of politics that a candidate currently seeking a given office will never confirm that he’s already decided to run for another, down the line. The standard response to such questions is ‘right now I’m focused on this race.’ And so it is with Governor Dave Heineman, who gives all the right answers about already having ‘the best job in | Read More »
Carville Poll: Just One-Third of Voters Support Obamacare
Here’s a shot of cold water for Democrats figuring out how to force an unpopular health care rationing bill through, despite the fact that it’s proving an incredibly hard lift even in liberal Massachusetts. Even Democratic pollster James Carville – and his partner, Stanley Greenberg – are finding that American voters are decisively against the proposal. Not only that, Carville’s most recent poll – which | Read More »
Consequences, intended and otherwise.
The recent negotiations between Labor and the White House have compelled me to write. It is becoming increasingly clear to me that the so-called health care reform package will have many consequences that may not have been anticipated by the President, nor by Congress. In November, the Congressional Budget Office reported that the reform package will likely cause an increase of 10-12% increase in premiums | Read More »
