Mainstream Pols Get Trumped and Berned.
The American People have gazed long into the swirling abyss.* They stared long and hard and discovered that Hillary Rodham Clinton, Martin O’ Malley, Chris Christie, , , and a plethora of other disgusting, slug-like midget vote suckers were oozing towards the Presidential Primaries. So the People have done what they can do to send the powers that be a message. That message has been | Read More »

Special Obamacare Enrollment Period Not Working Out so Well
Since many people only learned of their tax penalty for not getting health insurance in 2014 when they were doing their taxes this year, and because Obamacare is so confusing in general, the federal government authorized a special extended enrollment period for both the federal exchange, the District of Columbia’s exchange, and the exchanges of 11 states. Monday, Healthcare.gov took to Twitter to announce the | Read More »

New Hampshire, Vermont: look, all those states look alike to Elizabeth Warren.
You really don’t expect to care about New Hampshire, can you? The Senator can barely muster up enough energy to care about Massachusetts. So it’s not really surprising to hear that the woman apparently can’t be bothered to remember which state pretends to be from:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D, Vermont) meets with some of his Jew-hating constituents.
You know, we hear a lot of guff from the American Left about how insular rural areas of Red States can be. But I gotta tell you: speaking as a transplanted Northeasterner, listen to some of those progressives in Vermont and it’s like you’re in a time warp back to 1830 and the Know-Nothing Party. This is from a recent town hall in Cabot, VT: basically, Sen. Bernie Sanders | Read More »
Vermont 2014 GOP Primary “Endorsements”
Let us make no bones about it: Vermont is a lost cause in 2014 for the Republican Party. This is a state that has proudly moved to a single-payer health care system (socialism), that regularly elects an avowed socialist to the Senate (Bernie Sanders), whose other Senator (Pat Leahy) is not far behind and whose congressman Peter Welch is also up there on the socialist | Read More »
Vermont. Or, ‘Why #Obamacare will not lead to single-payer.’
Megan McArdle finished up her article on Vermont’s single-payer woes by pretty much saying that, but I already knew it anyway. The basic problem? It’s going to cost at least $1.6 billion a year (or about 59% of Vermont’s current annual budget)… and there’s no way to pay for it except via massive tax hikes. Megan notes that Vermont’s taxes aren’t actually high at all | Read More »

HHS might also be biased? No freaking way.
Earlier tonight, I was watching a WWE pay-per-view when I glanced at Twitter and saw David Limbaugh post a link and ask if anyone knew about this story: Multiple federal investigations are probing the $2 billion Obamacare co-op loan program at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Washington Examiner has learned. [Skip] Investigators are focusing on the co-op program’s lack of transparency, high likelihood | Read More »
20 Days to Election Day: Vermont
There are four races on the ballot this year: President, Senator, Governor and their lone House seat race. This should be an easy analysis entry. For President, Obama will take Vermont’s three electoral votes. In the Governor’s race, incumbent Democrat Peter Shumlin is a liberal’s liberal. He has structured health care reform in Vermont to mirror the socialized model to the north in Canada. He | Read More »
Around the U.S. in 50 Days: Vermont and New Hampshire
Vermont will send Congressman Peter Welch back to the House and Bernie Sanders back to the Senate while giving their three electoral votes to Obama. Actually, I am glad Sanders will be sent back to the Senate. He is that old Ichabod Crane figure that reminds of how silly those liberals and socialists can be. In a more mainstream state- for New England, that is- | Read More »
