This lawless era
Not only does President Obama lack the legal authority to impose the “fix” for insurance cancellations he described on Thursday, but his entire proposal boils down to inviting insurance companies to violate federal law, and promising not to prosecute them for it. That’s not an oversimplification – it’s literally true. The Affordable Care Act – which Obama has previously been fond of describing as “the settled | Read More »
The Philippines, climate change, Democrats and the poor
Never let a crisis go to waste, even to push man-made global warming non-science while multitudes of the poor suffer in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. Yes, liberal Democrats love poor people so much they like to increase their numbers as voters dependent on them, and denied cheap energy and jobs, rather than evil corporations, for sustenance. And just as when anyone in America (except for when | Read More »

Throwing the Democrats a Lifeline…Again
There appears to be a differing of opinions regarding the Upton bill which may come up for a House vote on Friday. From most reports, Democrats are becoming anxious and antsy when it comes to Obamacare. Besides the debacle which is the website, the cancellations, the premium sticker shock, the ridiculous deductibles involved, and people losing their doctors- basically the opposite of everything Obama himself | Read More »

Wait…Didn’t Republicans Beat Up Conservatives For That?
During the fight over defunding Obamacare, Congressional Republicans claimed that Heritage Action for America, the Senate Conservatives Fund, RedState, and others were raising money off the defund fight and knew it would never work. In effect, they and their friends in the lobbyist community claimed conservatives were stirring up the base for the sole purpose of raising money. Now, in Congress, Republicans are considering Fred | Read More »
Party on Janet. Party on Barry.

Are You A Genetic Lottery Winner?
Are you a genetic lottery winner? Too bad. The legislative name for Obamacare is the Affordable Care Act. This name was chosen precisely to appeal to Americans to consider buying a health insurance plan from a government-run exchange. Who doesn’t like the idea of something that is “affordable”? By using that term, it suggested that the current system of health care was the opposite –”unafforable”. | Read More »
The Other Problem With Fred Upton’s Legislation
Let’s say the House passes Congressman Upton’s legislation and the Senate passes Senate Landrieu’s legislation.Let’s further say that Landrieu’s will not pass the House.We have two pieces of legislation that cannot pass either chamber.After the President’s press conference yesterday, a number of states announced that, contrary to what the President said, people will not be able to keep their healthcare plans. Likewise, more than a | Read More »

Capitalism can succeed where ObamaCare has failed
There was a lot going on during President Obama’s shamefully tardy press conference today. In the course of an hour, he packed in a ton of excuses, a weird takedown of his entire philosophy of government – don’t blame him, blame the system he demands your absolute obedience to! – a pile of gaffes that we’ll soon be seeing in Republican ads, and a last-ditch | Read More »
“The Fix” is in on ObamaCare

Wait!? Haven’t we heard that before?

GOP must not get caught in full repeal-only trap
Fixing Obamacare to make it more likely that it will never be repealed would mean increasing subsidies or imposing new mandates on individuals, employers, insurance companies, doctors and/or hospitals. The Upton bill does none of that. Rather, it eliminates mandates for a large portion of those whose insurance policies have been cancelled either directly or indirectly due to Obamacare. It would help millions of Americans | Read More »
Whitehouse.gov Updates Obamacare Section to Include a Link to His “Regrets”, But Leaves The Original “You Can Keep Your Plan” Promise Online
Last week, I reported that the whitehouse.gov website section pertaining to Obamacare still had the “if you like your plan, you can keep it” Promise. I checked out whitehouse.gov on November 6, a few days after Obama gave a speech during which he explained that the Promise actually had qualifiers. Obama’s new Promise during that speech was: “Now, if you have or had one of | Read More »
The Titanic Had Better Odds Reaching NY Than Obamacare Succeeding
Well, the Obamacare numbers are now public information – and they’re abysmal. Elise Viebeck of the Hill wrote that the “HHS reported that 106,185 people have selected plans from the state-by-state marketplaces designed to connect the uninsured with private healthcare coverage.” The keyword is selected. Overall, more people have signed the petition for the United States to build the Death Star than those who bought | Read More »

Riddle Me This, Republicans
I have read Jeffrey Anderson trying to explain how the Upton + Landrieu combo is not a trap.He and other Republicans argue that Landrieu will destabilize Obamacare by keeping people out of the exchanges who are needed in the exchanges to fund it.Some of them are honest about what is going to happen. Rate shock will escalate more quickly and painfully.Insurance companies that have spent | Read More »
