Above politics, above dissent
The White House furies were swiftly unleashed across social media in the wake of the Supreme Court agreeing to hear Hobby Lobby’s case against the ObamaCare mandates, which force the owners of the craft superstore to violate their religious beliefs. Democrat politicians and their volunteer lefty auxiliaries bleated the “War on Women” line that mean old religious fanatics want to tell free-spirited women how to | Read More »
Hobby Lobby #Obamacare conscience exemption case to be heard by Supreme Court.
Not unexpected, but not before time, either. The U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to review the lawsuit filed by Hobby Lobby against the federal government over the Obamacare mandate that employers provide contraceptive coverage in their health plans. Hobby Lobby, which is owned by an Oklahoma City family with strong Christian beliefs, says a 1993 law, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, protects the company from | Read More »
Republicans in the nation’s capital are rightfully hitting Obamacare as a giant redistribution of wealth program that would make even Vladimir Lenin jealous. However, its ironic that many of these same Republicans criticizing the redistribution taking place under Obamacare voted, and in some cases begged, for the passage of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, also known as TARP. TARP, with its nearly one trillion dollar | Read More »

Jack Kingston has Surrendered on Obamacare
Democrats are stewing in the misery of Obamacare’s disastrous side effects. We have a solid point of leverage coming in January to fight Obamacare in the budget. As we’ve explained, we have stronger leverage this time around than we did in October. However, that leverage is only predicated upon a united Republican Party committed to getting rid of Obamacare. Sadly, the recent comments by Rep. | Read More »
You Think Obamacare is Bad Now? Just Wait.
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss just how bad Obamacare’s rollout has gotten, the hospitals and doctors that will take the biggest hit and why the whole Obamacare mess is only going to get worse.

Cover Oregon giving out people’s personal #obamacare information by accident.
‘By accident’ is not a valid excuse, by the way. What we can learn from this story about Cover Oregon – yes, it’s the exchange with the songs – and its operating methodology: Cover Oregon is still incapable of processing applications online. Anyone who mailed an application will have at least a month’s lag time before they get a response. If there’s a problem with | Read More »
The Onion explains (obliquely) why Democrats should ignore #ofa’s #obamacare Thanksgiving advice.
Point (The Daily Caller): America’s families will soon get their turkey, potatoes and cranberries at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners — but some will also get a tableside political pitch for the Obamacare insurance network. President Barack Obama’s deputies at Organizing for Action are urging supporters to give an Obamacare pitch to their relatives during the most iconic of American family and religious events. “Take advantage | Read More »
From Bambi to Obamacare… When compassion requires death
Earlier this week I was driving back from the gym around dawn when I saw a deer flailing about in a ditch on the side of the road. I thought it might have been stuck and stopped to see if I could help. As I approached him it became clear that he was not stuck, but had been hit and his legs were broken and | Read More »
Obama’s Legacy – One Thing
In the 1991 film “City Slickers,” hard-as-nails trail boss Curly Washburn (Jack Palance) shared with rookie cowpoke Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal) that a person’s life comes down to just “one thing.” For those who seek the limelight and benefits of elected public service, one thing is all that many will be known for – good or bad. George Washington, who certainly accomplished a lot in | Read More »
“Failure is ALWAYS an option*.” #obamacare
A free hint to my fellow liberal arts majors: outside of our own, rather narrow, academic disciplines, it really doesn’t matter how hard you wish for something. You’re not gonna get it that way: The idea that “failure is not an option” is a fantasy version of how non-engineers should motivate engineers. That sentiment was invented by a screenwriter, riffing on an after-the-fact observation about | Read More »
ObamaCare loses support among Women and Democrats as Obama approvals tank
It was a very bad polling week for President Obama and ObamaCare, his signature legislative achievement. First, the new ABC News/Washington Post poll found that, if they had the opportunity to do it over, registered voters would choose Mitt Romney over President Obama by a margin of 49% to 45%. Obama’s approvals also hit a new all-time low in the poll with a 42% approval | Read More »
For those of you that saw the Pixar film “Up”, you may remember that the way the dogs were distracted by “SQUIRREL”. Well, I am getting that feeling on RedState right now. We have malfeasance in office related to ObamaCare, and an issue that should impeach this President if it is followed to its full conclusion. However, we are now running around caring that the | Read More »
@BarackObama ‘extends’ application ‘deadline’ to December 23rd. #obamacare
This is actually not going to work, you know. The Obama administration on Friday offered an extension of the current ObamaCare enrollment period — though not exactly what Republicans were seeking. Federal health officials announced Friday afternoon that they’d give people another eight days this year to enroll in an insurance policy and still get covered by Jan. 1. Previously, people had to enroll by | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Will Campaign On Repeal & Replace in 2016
That is not a misprint. In response to the growing evidence that health insurance premiums are set to skyrocket due to the lack of interest in signing up for ObamaCare among young, healthy adults, Obama has decided to bet all of his chips on the November, 2014 elections by delaying 2015 enrollment for one month…or until a week after the election. The objective is to | Read More »
Mark Udall, the Partisan High Jumper
Here’s the pattern. President Obama and Harry Reid say jump and Senator Mark Udall asks how high. Yesterday, Udall jumped over more than 200 years of history to rubber stamp the Obama/Harry Reid move changing the Senate rules to allow judicial and executive branch nominees to be approved by a simple majority. This will make it easier for President Obama to get his way on | Read More »
