Surprise Surprise, Kevin McCarthy Backs Amnesty
We have a president who has tied the hands of our border agents, granted administrative amnesty, encouraged a new flow of illegal immigration, and is now demanding comprehensive amnesty, citizenship, and benefits for all illegal immigrants. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the third-ranking Republican in the House, is responding to the President with overwhelming force. Watch out, Obama: The third-ranking House Republican, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), | Read More »
Target drops part-time workers from health care plans. #obamacare
(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) I actually do feel mildly sorry for whoever had to write the line of nonsense below, though. I mean, I understand why Target has to drop coverage for part-timers (they’re probably sweating bullets trying to figure out how to pay for the looming coverage hikes for the full-time employees*), but it’s a heck of a thing when circumstances require you to | Read More »
Star Dem Congressional Candidate: Everybody’s Lying But Me
Stop me if you’ve heard this one. Last week, a Democrat confessed to a reporter that he really is not in favor of Obamacare. The reporter broadcast the statements. The Democrat had a change of heart after the money and the Radical Left put the heat on him. So he backtracked; the campaign said the candidate said no such thing. Pretty standard stuff there? Not | Read More »

Tech at Night: When Snowden wins, America loses. Healthcare.gov is still insecure.
Bitcoin is not really as widely used as its shills want you to think.
Ajit Pai is the man and understand what it means for the courts to be used to quash innovation. As the courts refused to crush the VCR, I want them to leave Aereo alone.
By the way, Healthcare.gov is still at risk. Good thing it’s a miserable failure, though that doesn’t help the poor souls already signed up and at risk in the vulnerable systems.
Democrats want to pass a new law mandating a private-public partnership to track where you and your phone are at all times, in the name of 911 calls. But remind me again how all the Snowden stuff is about privacy and not anti-Americanism and a rollback to 9/10/2001 thinking again. Sure, guys. Sure.

Ann Kirkpatrick (D, Arizona-01) tries to run against #obamacare. :pause: Umm…
In 2010, Ann Kirkpatrick was a key vote for Obamacare. This is a thing that happened. It, in fact, cost her the 2010 election. Freshman Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.) will vote for the healthcare reform bill that will soon hit the House floor. Kirkpatrick’s support is a boost for President Barack Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who are trying to corral 216 votes to | Read More »
This half-despairing statement from a Florida physician will break your heart. #obamacare
LIBRE has put out this ad out against Joe Garcia in Florida. You see, Rep. Garcia – when he’s not hiring chiefs of staff who later get convicted for election fraud – has been recently trying to quietly distance himself from Obamacare. Presumably this has been because Obamacare has been generally awful… and awful and arrogantly dismissive of Latino voters. So LIBRE has set up | Read More »
Veterans Used as Pawns in Omnibus Bill
Today, the House will vote on the omnibus bill to fund all of the federal government for the remainder of the fiscal year. There are obviously numerous problems with the bill, from funding Obamacare and Dodd-Frank to a laundry list of increases in spending and backdoor earmarks. The Heritage Foundation has a good roundup of these items. Additionally, the entire approach of this bill is | Read More »
Obama’s Single Payer System
Obamacare will remain on the front burner in 2014 – it has definitely been one of the culprits that have stalled our economy. Businesses have worked lean and mean since 2010 because of the many unknowns that have accompanied the “Obamacare” law. Now in 2014, Obamacare is destructing and destroying the economy; (1) Putting additional financial burdens on families, (2) The reason businesses are laying | Read More »
Why Are the Media’s ‘Consumer Interest Groups’ So Leftist and Anti-Consumer?
The Media’s double standard when describing political advocacy organizations is as obvious as it is unsurprising. The Media rarely if ever identify Leftist entities as Leftist – instead assigning them non-ideological descriptives. Often, it is the ridiculous “consumer interest group” – as if the anti-free market side of the equation is pro-consumer, and the defenders of freedom are against the purchasing public. Never mind that | Read More »

WaPo: Maryland Democrats knew #Obamacare state exchange launch wouldn’t work.
This Washington Post article starts bad for the O’Malley administration… More than a year before Maryland launched its health insurance exchange, senior state officials failed to heed warnings that no one was ultimately accountable for the $170 million project and that the state lacked a plausible plan for how it would be ready by Oct. 1. Over the following months, as political leaders continued to | Read More »
Madre de Dios, #Obamacare.
(H/T: @allahpundit) Yeah, about the Spanish-language Obamacare site… Mirroring problems with the federal health care website, people around the nation attempting to navigate the Spanish version have discovered their own set of difficulties. The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes | Read More »
It’s Redistribution, Stupid Per Obama
Obama’s “Promise Zones” – Election Year Wealth Redistribution Scheme http://freepatriot.org/2014/01/10/watch-obamas-promise-zones-election-year-wealth-redistribution-scheme/ The big question for Americans – how do we stop the bloody spending by Obama, Democrats and Republicans? Here’s a brief preview of the past five years and a glimpse of the future. So much for our daily dose of lies from Obama, his administration and the Liberal News media – as a Nation we | Read More »
Michael Booth’s #Obamacare conflict of interest at the Denver Post/Colorado Health Foundation.
Ach, the tangled skeins of modern journalism/politics/NGOs. Let me walk you through the timeline. First, it just recently came out that Senator Mark Udall’s office tried to strong-arm Colorado’s Division of Insurance back in November into retracting the perfectly-accurate statement that Obamacare caused about 250,000 people to get insurance cancellation notices. Oddly enough, on 01/09/2014 the Denver Post came up with an article written by | Read More »
