Immigration Reform (or Amnesty) is ultimately DEAD this Congress
I read a good column from Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post which he spoke of immigration and why it’s dead for this Congress at least. It was published back on the 25th. Here it is: President Obama gave a speech Monday in San Francisco calling on Congress to act on immigration reform! House Speaker John Boehner rejected the idea that immigration reform was dead at | Read More »
It’s time for Louisiana voters to heed the words of Mary Landrieu
In October of this year, Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stood on the Senate floor and told her constituents that her upcoming election should be a referendum on her vote for ObamaCare. Talking about voters and ObamaCare, the embattled Senator said: “We did not wake up one morning and declare this the law. The people of the United States declared this through us as their Representatives. If | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech discuss the continuing problems with Obamacare’s rollout, the White House ever changing goal post and why insurers may get a big taxpayer bailout.

Say Merry Christmas and annoy a Liberal
ObamaCare is smoldering in rubble, and we should expect the Democrats to jump onto something – anything – that will give them a chance to stop talking about it. That’s why it was unsurprising to watch the Democrat Party launch themselves into a complete meltdown yesterday over a tee shirt sold in the National Republican Congressional Committee online store. The GOP committee, though, isn’t backing down. “Happy | Read More »
The GOP Establishment Cannot Be Defeated Unless You Help
We all know the names of the GOP establishment RINOs whom we love to hate; John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell in the Senate, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Pete King in the House. They and others are the ones pushing the Republican Party to embrace amnesty, they are the ones who wouldn’t support defunding Obamacare, they are the ones attacking Ted Cruz, and they are | Read More »
No, @barackobama will not fire anybody over #obamacare. Or anything else.
I understand Ed Morrissey’s point, here… A competent executive would have made examples of a few people long ago as a message to the rest to improve their work. The problem is that we don’t have competent executives in this administration, starting at the top. Obama won legislative achievements in his first term without any operational success, which went unnoticed because either the metrics for | Read More »
The GOP: A Choice, not an Echo
Well, it appears that we are on the same page as the establishment with one important goal. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told the Richmond Times-Dispatch “America needs a Republican Party.” Amen! We’ve been saying for years that America needs a bold choice, not a faint and pathetic echo. Unfortunately, it seems that Cantor plans to achieve that goal by counterintuitively acting more like the | Read More »
Healthcare.gov Still Barely Works
As we get back up and running from the Thanksgiving Holiday, the deadline for the Obamacare website has come and gone. CNN was able to get it to crash live on national television. But that’s okay. The Obama Administration got the New York Times to run a full page ad . . . errr . . . they actually called it journalism … claiming that | Read More »
Obamacare “Essential Benefits” Rendered Most Insurance Policies Obsolete
The great bait-and-switch of Obamacare (“you can keep your plan and your doctor”) was intentionally orchestrated by the architects of the legislation. There were thousands of policies offered nationwide that were good and even very good but now they can’t be sustained under the new Obamacare policy requirements. These regulations are so narrow that it intentionally made obsolete or non-compliant the vast majority of health | Read More »
So, it’s December 1, 2013. They get healthcare.gov to work yet? #obamacare
This isn’t an academic question, by the way: there are kids with cancer who would like this administration to stop wrecking their health care. Little Hunter Alford needs chemotherapy to treat the rare and deadly cancer he was born with but has lost his health insurance under an administrative blunder seemingly caused by Obamacare. While the president’s signature policy promised that no one with a | Read More »
Thanksgiving 2013: Obama-Zombie Talking Point Survival Guide… OY!!
Friends, I know, it’s Thanksgiving, and the LAST thing you want to hear from your tongue-pierced Anthropology major nephew is how unbelievably fantabulous ObamaCare is. Grandma’s stuffing is OUT OF THIS WORLD, to be cherished — no, worshipped; yet the White House, via Organizing For Action, is encouraging the Zombie Faithful to shanghai dinner. So we must respond. How? Well, first, you might spit your | Read More »
Thinking Outside the Obamacare Box
Every day we see the headlines and horror stories. Millions of health insurance policies canceled, with an exponential number more facing the ax next year. And besides the broken promises, we have a broken website that makes it nearly impossible for the long suffering uninsured, and the newly uninsured, to sign up. On top of what appears to be a combination of poor planning, | Read More »
If you like your country you can keep your country: Part II, Democrats Seats
Democratic Senate Races 2014 There are a total of 21 Democratic Senate seats up for election. Next we’ll look at the states that were competitive in the 2012 Presidential Election. If the Republicans hold all their seats and turn 6 they will take control of the Senate. In part one I looked at those Democrat Seats that appear safe at this time. This article | Read More »
Why Hasn’t Obama Fired Sebelius?
Earlier this month, ten Republican senators sent an unprecedented letter to President Obama urging that he fire Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who has served under Obama since 2009. As the Obama care debacle drags on, however, the administration has refused to send her packing. Sebelius, for her part, as an interesting defense, saying that, “the majority of people calling for me to | Read More »
If you like your country you can keep it!
Democratic Senate Races 2014 There are a total of 21 Democratic Senate seats up for election. If the Republicans hold all their seats and turn 6 they will take control of the Senate. There are nine seats that were considered safely in Democratic hands: (as of 11-26-13) However, it is clear that the train wreck that is Obamacare that the Democrats are | Read More »
