So. @barackobama took away your plan, but now won’t fine you for not having one.
Big of him. And the rest of the Democratic party. And by ‘big of him’ I mean… something unprintable. The Obama administration will not require the millions of Americans who received health-insurance plan cancellation notices to purchase a new policy next year. They’re granting those consumers an exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, a Department of Heath and Human Services spokeswoman confirmed. The | Read More »
How Espionage and Inefficiency Ruined Public Trust
By: Rachel Burger Yesterday, Gallup released a poll that shows a record number of Americans—72%—believe that the greatest threat to the United States is big government. That’s a pretty large leap since March 2009, when only 55% of Americans thought that was the case. What’s even more astonishing is that, across party lines, more people view government as a threat than big business or big | Read More »

Putting 2013 in Perspective
2013 has been a rough year for conservatives. This year began with the passage of the $620 billion tax hike, along with $332 billion in stimulus spending. It ended with Republicans in both houses helping pass a bill that raises taxes, raises spending, makes it easier to raise taxes in the future, destroys our leverage for two years, screws disabled veterans, and paves the road | Read More »

“Nonsensical in all dimensions:” healthcare.gov about to switch #obamacare web hosts.
Oh, dear. This seems… ill-timed. Some technical experts are perplexed at the U.S. government’s plan to switch web hosts for its new health insurance portal, HealthCare.gov, in the midst of an expected last-minute rush to beat a March 31 enrollment deadline for 2014 coverage. Switching hosts is not in and of itself a huge risk if it is done carefully and with lots of preparation, | Read More »
Baltimore Sun: Maryland MUST consider scrapping its state #obamacare exchange.
The sound that you just heard was Martin O’Malley’s Presidential ambitions getting shot in the gut: …the pace of enrollments is still far too low. If the [Maryland state] exchange is able to replicate its best weekday and weekend performance during every one of the 104 days between now and the end of the open enrollment period on March 31, Maryland will still only achieve | Read More »

Mitch ‘The Magician’ McConnell
Senator Mitch McConnell would make an excellent magician. He has a penchant for disappearing during the toughest moments of a battle and deftly distracting attention to an issue not in contention at the time. During the summer, when conservatives were marshaling support for a unified message of funding the government minus Obamacare, McConnell was completely absent. When cornered by the media to comment on the | Read More »
Microsoft Exec To Oversee Healthcare.gov: Photoshop This!
Today we found out that former Microsoft executive Kurt DelBene is the new man at the helm of government Titanic Healthcare. gov. And that’s just part of the picture. The president is meeting with all kinds of tech giants, including Apple, Google, and AT&T, trying to figure out some way, any way, to right the ship. We’ve had fun with Obamacare photoshops here at RedState | Read More »
#Obamacare’s expanded Medicaid asset seizure bonanza.
Hey, you had to pass the act to find out what was in it: It wasn’t the moonlight, holiday-season euphoria or family pressure that made Sofia Prins and Gary Balhorn, both 62, suddenly decide to get married. It was the fine print. As fine print is wont to do, it had buried itself in a long form — Balhorn’s application for free health insurance through | Read More »
Sequester We Hardly Knew Ye — Budget Deal Vote
Sequester We Hardly Knew Ye By Congressman Tom McClintock The great irony of the Republican decision to bust the budget sequester is that barely two months ago, congressional roles were reversed. The Democrats insisted on funding the government according to existing law. The Republicans sought one simple change: that the individual insurance mandate under Obamacare be delayed for one year. They were trying to spare | Read More »
The Harsh Environment of Today’s Internet

Sen. Mark Udall (D, Colorado) lied about #obamacare: watch him get called on it here.
Ladies and gentlemen, expect a war in the Colorado Senate race. Senator Udall, don’t you DARE tell more lies about this healthcare mess. YOU’RE the one who took away our doctors. YOU’RE the one who cancelled our plans. You looked us in the eye, Senator Udall, and you lied.
Leftists to Americans: ‘Embrace the Government Suck’
Uber-Leftist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently chided her caucus to vote for a Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget agreement – which they didn’t particularly like – by telling them to “Embrace the suck.” Stay classy, Congresswoman. This is the same woman who teed up the ObamaCare disaster by uttering the classic “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is | Read More »

Pro-life Democrat tells church members to enroll in Obamacare in memory of Mandela
Cross-posted from The Quinton Report. The Baltimore Sun: All his life, he has tried to emulate the example of Nelson Mandela, the former South African president who ended apartheid and was buried Sunday. Burns dedicated his Sunday service at Rising Sun First Baptist Church to memorializing Mandela and encouraging people to sign up for health insurance under theAffordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, which Burns | Read More »
Why @BarackObama will cheerfully ignore the AP’s photo complaints.
This would be the complaint in question: Manifestly undemocratic […] is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried to bypass the media by releasing a sanitized visual record of his activities through official photographs and videos, at the expense of independent journalistic access. The White House-based press corps was | Read More »
