Maryland Obamacare Exchange Overcharged Feds by $30 Million
It has been a while since we last talked about the gigantic messes that some state Obamacare exchanges are. Maryland’s exchange is one of the leaders in that group. The state ditched its original exchange last year because it was too glitch-ridden to work. Now, news has come out that Maryland overcharged the federal government by almost $30 million. Per The Hill: Maryland’s yearlong audit | Read More »
Kill the ‘Doc Fix’
John Fund has a good piece on the coming “doc fix” fight. The ‘doc fix’ comes from a congressional mandate cutting the amount of money doctors are paid for treating medicare patients. A lot of doctors have stopped treating them. Every few years, Congress comes back and tinkers some more. Now Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and [mc_name name=’Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)’ | Read More »

Disaffected Conservatives and Political MGTOW On The Right
Chase Him Away And You’ll Get Her If you have read the Conservative Blogs for a number of years, then you’ve undoubtedly read many a post on Ace of Spades HQ. If you haven’t yet, I can still recommend most of it as satisfactory articulation of why we fight. And yet the cynicism creeps in even there. In reaction to Glenn | Read More »

Barack Obama Prepares To Govern The Way Mitt Romney Campaigned
Off To Slay More Private Sector Job Creation Mitt Romney will never be president. He richly deserves it. His infamous comment “I don’t care about the poor” consigned him to the well-deserved ash-heap of failed American Politicians. I was ecstatic when Romney announced he wasn’t running in 2016. His warped and pathetic values on this are indicative of the Chamber of | Read More »

Obama’s budget screws his Big Pharma allies
This is just pure schadenfreude. It might even be schadenfreude a la mode with a bourbon chaser.

Unions Exploit Obamacare to Grow in Size & Power
Across the country, unions are reeling. Union membership is at historic lows. Federally, card check legislation has now been dead for years. In Wisconsin, Scott Walker took on public sector unions and won. Michigan has put right-to-work laws on the books. Even in blue states (New Jersey, Illinois, California) some steps have been taken to try to rein in out-of-control unions. But Obamacare and increased numbers | Read More »

IRS Hires Same Firm that Botched the Obamacare Rollout
If you need any indication of the IRS’s administration of Obamacare is going to go, look no further than this story.
