Jessica Sanford, one of @BarackObama’s #obamacare ‘success stories,’ will have no insurance.
Oh dear God but the Democrats have not done right by this woman. OLYMPIA, Nov. 17.—Jessica Sanford, the Federal Way woman who got a shout-out from President Obama last month with her fan letter for the Affordable Care Act, got a rather rude awakening last week. Turns out she doesn’t qualify for a tax credit after all. At least that’s what the letter said that | Read More »
Healthcare.gov site advertising SQL injection attacks
Via Alex Hern on Twitter, we find that the Obamacare website has attempted website attacks in its search box, automatically prompted for you if you type or mistype the right letters or punctuation.
This tells us a few things: there is a lack of polish in the Healthcare.gov website, there are many people who want to break into the website, and there isn’t much confidence in the security of the website. All of these things should be troubling to people with data in that system.

Why are people surprised that @barackobama has no conception of good staffing? #obamacare
Bolding mine, but the last line probably is the most relevant question that can be asked about the current administration: There is nothing that any president needs more than a team of competent people around him who can keep him and his key initiatives on track. President Obama is in his fifth year in office, and he isn’t getting the level of performance from his | Read More »
Rep. Ann McLane Kuster (D, New Hampshire) sneers at the American people!
And not just the people of New Hampshire’s Second District. Kuster has a problem with all of us: …New Hampshire’s four members of Congress, three of them Democrats, were set upon by local reporters with one simmering question: What are you going to do about the faltering Affordable Care Act? Representative Ann McLane Kuster, the state’s freshman Democrat, displayed her own exasperation over the failed | Read More »
Toure’, Progressivism And The Attitude That Endangers A Republic
TOURE NEBLETT: Let’s just look at members who are supporting this Landrieu bill, right. Mary Landrieu from a red state. Senator Kay Hagan from a red state. Joe Manchin from a red state. Senator Pryor from a red state. Senator Mark Begich from a red state. Do you notice anything? We see red state Democrats who are dealing with the challenge of living and governing in a gerrymandered world where sometimes they have to deal with what the folks on the right – very low support from the Republican side for this – what the folks on the right want.
I’ve hated gerrymandering for years and wished someone would write an algorithm to draw Congressional Districts that would just about make it impossible. Perhaps I should feel vindicated that a cracker-jack pundit on MSNBC is seeing things my way. Here’s Toure Neblett getting religion on gerrymandering. It’s just that there are two problems. One, you can’t gerrymander a Senate District. The 2nd, more serious problem is his attitude.

House Energy/Commerce Committee: HHS knew all along #obamacare was failing.
Oh, this should provide hours of amusement. House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today unveiled a series of documents provided by the Department of Health and Human Services from July 2013 that reveal the administration internally voicing serious concerns about the progress of the HealthCare.gov website. Among the concerns raised by senior officials was the ability to meet the October 1 launch date and the | Read More »
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 »
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.
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Francis Cianfrocca to discuss Janet Yellen’s testimony on Capitol Hill, if she will ever change the Fed’s monetary policy and the Obamacare “fix” that isn’t.

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, | 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 »
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 | Read More »
John Boehner in 2010 setting up my “We told you so” in 2013. #obamacare
And yes, I would like to take this time to remind the American people with regard to Obamacare that we, in point of fact, told you so. That’s then-House Minority Leader John Boehner pointing out in 2010 that Obamacare was passed in shameful fashion and in grotesque guise. He also noted that this entire “if you like your plan you can keep it” was arrant | Read More »
