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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
