The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. You were told that, if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. But hospitals are laying off people by the thousands. You were told that, if you liked your health plan, you could keep your health plan. But the Affordable Care Act has, written into the bill in | Read More »
[Video fixed: I don't know why the code wasn't loading earlier, sorry.] The House GOP has produced… the video that all of you wanted them to produce about Obamacare. One that simply shows all the people who are being hurt by Barack Obama’s (and by extension, the Democratic party’s leadership’s) lies about how ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ Well, that | Read More »
On July 4, 1776 after approving the Declaration of Independence, Congress chose Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin to design a great seal for our new country. Benjamin Franklin proposed the phrase “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” This sentiment ran throughout the revolutionaries fighting to shed a system of government that viewed them as “subjects” rather than free men with the right | Read More »
CNN has released a report that the main Healthcare.gov contractor CGI warned the Obama administration one month in advance that there were critical problems preventing them from ensuring a clean launch of the website. In particular, the administration was warned that testing was being obstructed.
The quote from the CGI memo leaves no doubt, if you understand the technical jargon used in the memo. I’ll take it apart and explain just how bad this situation really was.
About a week ago, I wrote about my personal experience with ObamaCare. After the website failures, mangled data, and numerous other problems, the Obama Administration allowed users to see what plans would be available in their area.
My explanation of the facts was immediately attacked by the Left. The liberals over at the Daily Kos pounced, applauding those on the Left “Bravely taking on Redstate,” as commenters from the Left accused me of lying about what I discovered when I went to Healthcare.gov.
I’m going to use a loaded word in this post, so I want to get it out of the way right up front. That word is fascism. We all know it’s bad – just about the worst thing a government can become, although I can think of a few million victims of communism who might argue the point, if we could use a Ouija board to | Read More »
Government grows – and only government benefits. We’re seeing that with the Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare. Turns out that the laws opponents were right – it is stripping from millions of Americans their health insurance coverage. President Barack Obama and his fellow travelers insisted – again, and again, and again, and again – that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. | Read More »
This month and next mark the fifth anniversaries of the Housing Bust-caused financial crisis that led to TARP and other Fat Cat-bailouts and the election of the purveyor of Obamanomics. Next month also marks the seventh anniversary of the Election of 2006 that returned Democrats to power in the House for four years and in the Senate for six years and counting that have, along | Read More »
Last night, I blogged about NBC News’ report on the Obama administration knowing that millions would lose their coverage as a result of the new health care law. In fact, it was projected that 40-67% of Americans in the individual market would lose their coverage. It was posted late afternoon yesterday, but the link vanished later that night. According to NBC, they blamed it on a “publishing glitch.” | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by CJ Ciaramella to discuss Obamacare’s failures, Terry McAuliffe’s campaign in VA and the EPA’s SWAT raid of an Alaskan mine.
Originally, I was going to use the step-stool analogy, only the problem here is that in order for Obamacare to work all three problems need to be resolved. At the moment the administration is more or less working on one full time, and desultorily working on another. The third has yet to be addressed. So… consider a set of gears, with three obstructions. All three | Read More »
That said, beware ideas for government-directed national cybersecurity plans or regulations, such as those proposed often by Democrats. They can’t even secure the Obamacare website, let alone tell you how to secure yours. Share information only. Pass CISPA, not new mandates.
Congressman Steve Scalise (R- La.) wants you to share your Obamacare story. Why? Well, he decided to enroll in Obamacare and took him nearly two hours to make an account – only to be kicked out because his identity couldn’t be “verified.” As a result, he couldn’t even get a price quote. In the time he spent grappling with the Obamacare website, the congressman was | Read More »
Everything you ever thought about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is wrong. He really is a fighter after all. At a recent fundraiser with 300 K street donors, as reported by Politico, Mitch McConnell was in a combative mood. According to one attendee, he was “in fighting mode.” No, he was not in a fighting mode against Obama and the Democrats. As he spoke at | Read More »
