Ken Cuccinelli helpfully reminds Virginia that Barack Obama & Terry McAuliffe are allies. #obamacare.
This is, of course, a parody of Barack Obama’s actual remarks about Terry McAuliffe. You can tell because surely Barack Obama would not be stupid enough to praise Obamacare – and McAuliffe’s intention to actually drag the state further into its clutches – two days before the Virginia gubernatorial election. There are limits to idiocy. There have to be. Anyway, a taste:
Your personal information is not secure on healthcare.gov. #obamacare
This… is not an issue of too many people making the site crash. Heritage: Justin Hadley logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state. [snip] After multiple attempts to access the problem-plagued website, Hadley finally made it past the registration | Read More »
On #ObamaCare, Obama Had A Choice: Honesty Or Deception [He Chose The Latter].
This past week, a lot of people realized that President Obama
lied to misled
the American people on his “you can keep your insurance” pledge.
In fact, up to 93 million Americans may lose their employer-sponsored health plans on top of the million of others who are losing their individually-bought plans. The fact that the Obama Administration knew this in 2010 makes it even more damning.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Obama aides actually debated whether to be honest with Americans or to deceive them. The Obama Administration chose deception.

Today is November 2nd. Put down the leftover Halloween candy. Step away from the candy. Remember, today is the date on which Dewey failed to defeat Truman in 1948 …
2010: Chuck Grassley accurately predicts mass insurance cancellations under #obamacare.
As I said on Twitter: CNN. CN Freaking N. Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out. In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate | Read More »
So, @barackobama threw away his #shutdown advantage over #obamacare. Why?
Jonah Goldberg and I may have originally disagreed over who ‘won’ the shutdown – but Jonah is as startled as I am at how horribly Barack Obama handled the situation, given what Obama knew: …consider Obama’s only clear-cut political victory since his reelection. Republican demands were a bit of a moving target, but basically the GOP wanted either an all-out repeal of Obamacare or, as | Read More »
#Obamacare is holding a gun to the collective head of 93 million insurance policies.
This is… bad. Background: Jay Carney, speaking as White House Press Secretary (notice how all of the administration’s official Obamacare cheerleaders are loyal partisans, instead of respected policy wonks?) tried to argue that Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” lie would only turn around to bite people in the individual insurance market. Not so fast, says Avik Roy: Contrary to | Read More »
It’s Not about the Website or the Individual Mandate
When discussing the problems with Obamacare we often hear the politicians focus on the failure of the website, healthcare.gov. Clearly, the website failure is a great illustration of the dangers of statism and bureaucracy, but there is no doubt the website will get fixed. They will make sure of it. The individual mandate is also a tangential point in the scheme of things. Obviously, there | Read More »
For all of your “Explain to folks how bad Sebelius was today” needs. #obamacare
The NRCC went ahead and created a useful list called the “7 Most Ridiculous Things Kathleen Sebelius Said At Today’s Hearing:” there were more than seven, of course, but these were particularly… well, ‘good’ is not really the right term, eh? Anyway, this one’s my favorite: 2. “The website never crashed.” “We were anxious to get the website up and running and functional, which we | Read More »
“A Promise He Could Not Keep.” [Video fixed.]
[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 »
CNN reports Obama admin failed to ensure contractors could test Healthcare.gov
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.

Big Government once again turns on its Little Partners
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 »
CJ Ciaramella on Obamacare, Terry McAuliffe and EPA’s SWAT Team
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.

The three interlocking gears of the #Obamacare #FAIL.
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 »
Mitch McConnell in his Own Words
Watch carefully with the understanding that this is the most powerful, well-connected Republican in Washington, and you will see why we are losing. Enough said. Open thread Tuesday.
