How The GOP Can Get To The Magic 60 Votes And Send Bills To Obama

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and William Douglas and David Lightman at The State. So the historic 2014 Midterms have given the GOP once in nearly a century numbers in both Houses and Governorships, but with Obama in the White House for his last two, lame duck years, how do they get bills past the Dems in the Senate? Sixty. It’s the magic number for getting most things done in the U.S. Senate – and it will be the target for Republicans to get legislation through the House of Representatives, past Democratic objections in the Senate and to the desk of […]

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” […]

Romney was Right

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico. He tried to tell America during his ill-fated 2012 run for the President of the United States, but it seems he wasn’t listened to. Well at least it’s for sure that Obama didn’t believe him or listen to him, judging by Obama’s spectacularly awful year and half since winning his second term. In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor’s predictions have played out on the world stage. For instance, Romney called Russia the nation’s “number one geopolitical foe”; he pledged strong […]

“My Cancellation’ Site Shows How ObamaCare has Hurt People

The site is named, My Cancellation, and it is an open forum for people to submit their cancellation stories, letters, and pics.  Here is a sampling… The Democrats may lie about it, but there is no escaping it-not only are people losing their plans, what they are offered under ObamaCare is far more expensive. Just to recap… 1.  “If you like your plan you can keep it.”  LIE! 2.  Premiums are going to come down by $2500 a year.  LIE! And, as always, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned, but you chose to listen […]

#ObamaCare Damage: 100,000 to Lose Insurance in NY; 800,000 on NJ Impacted

I bet there are a bunch of Obama voters out there wondering what happened with #ObamaCare.  They’re getting cancellation notices for the plans that Obama told them they could keep.  Not only that, most are being told that they can get another plan, with a higher deductible, and a far higher premium.  Of course, they could have read here, for years, about what was going to happen, but they watched the MSM instead.  So, now they are going to pay for their vote.  Jammie Wearing Fool has more… You voted for him, so now you must be punished. If you […]

ObamaCare Damage: NBC Airs Report That Shows Small Business Owner’s Plan Goes up 400%, Mandates Maternity Coverage for His 59 year-old Wife

Those pesky 59 year-old wives, you never know what they are going to do.  At least according to ObamaCare, they needed maternity coverage.  That, and they REQUIRE maternity coverage.  Welcome to the world of ObamaCare! As NBC news shows, a small businessman is getting hosed by the law… The gentlemen is only one of millions of Americans that can not only lose their plan, but will now pay many times more, for coverage that they neither want nor need. By the way, I would be remiss if I did not inform you that if you voted for Obama, you voted […]

ObamaCare Damage: Are People Being Given Lowball Quotes?

If this claim is correct, not only does the ObamaCare website fail to enroll you, gives false information to insurance companies, and is a open air market for identity theft, it also gives you lowball numbers as to what your premiums will be.  The Conservative Intelligence Briefing has more… h/t Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. As a former customer of eHealthInsurance.com, I can tell you that that website never gave me a “teaser” rate that was half what I ended up paying. In fact, I got a plan (for about $80 per month, with a $2,800 deductible) that went down […]

ObamaCare Damage: Skyrocketing Health Care Costs Confound NC Businessman

Yesterday, we reviewed how President Obama lied early and often about how ObamaCare was going to decrease premiums.  We went over that many people have had their premiums double, or even triple.  And now, we have the plight of a NC businessman who is struggling between a rock and a hard place in order to do right by his employees and customers… Did you catch the lie at the very end of the video?  That runs counter to the CBS News report from earlier that indicates that the system needs a complete overhaul to function.  In the end, ObamaCare is […]

ObamaCare Causes Big Bird to Lose Health Insurance?

Well, kinda.  It appears that among the SeaWorld workers that will be losing their hours and coverage, are employees of their subsidiary, Sesame Place.   Naked DC has more… Yes, America, Big Bird is about to lose his health insurance  under Obamacare. Or, at least, at least the guy who walks around in the Big Bird suit at Sesame Place is. Last year, Big Bird’s job security was thrust into the political spotlight. This year, it’s his health insurance. In a letter sent last week to President Obama, U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick contended that the Affordable Care Act had caused Sesame […]

ObamaCare Damage: Sea World Reduces Hours for Thousands of Workers to Under 30 a Week

It would appear that SeaWorld is the latest in a long line of employers that are slashing worker’s hours to avoid ObamaCare penalties.  Breitbart has more… SeaWorld has announced plans to slash thousands of part-time workers’ hours to no more than 28 hours a week. Reducing part-time workers’ current 32 hours a week down to 28 weekly hours will avoid Obamacare’s 30-hour full-time trigger that forces employers to provide comprehensive health insurance benefits or face up to $3,000 per employee in fines. SeaWorld’s public relations department offered scant details on its plans but said the move “is intended to bring […]

ObamaCare Damage: Wegman’s SuperMarket Eliminates Insurance for Part Time Staff Due to ObamaCare

If you voted for ObamaCare, you voted for part time workers at Wegman’s to to lose their insurance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nPfVTdGCrPQ. Elections have consequences.  You were warned, but chose this anyway. Happy now?

ObamaCare to Cost Delta Airlines $100,000,000 IN ONE YEAR!

We’ve covered a lot of ObamaCare Damage in the last couple years.  Hundreds of thousands of workers have had their hours cut.  Many have lost their plans.  Almost 75% of all jobs created so far in 2013 are part time jobs.  And as a far as we can see, that’s only the beginning.  For the latest, here is a letter from Delta Airlines. Delta Airlines expects Obamacare will directly and indirectly cost it $100 million in 2014. As you can see, ObamaCare is going to present a significant threat to Delta, and it’s workers. Delta has the usual options at […]

Even More ObamaCare Damage: Even Reuters is Reporting on the Part-Time Job Trend

It seems that even Reuters can’t avoid discussing what we’ve been covering for months; that ObamaCare is forcing businesses to convert full time jobs into part time jobs.  Even Reuters can’t hide the truth any longer: U.S. businesses are hiring at a robust rate. The only problem is that three out of four of the nearly 1 million hires this year are part-time and many of the jobs are low-paid. Faltering economic growth at home and abroad and concern that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will drive up business costs are behind the wariness about taking on full-time […]

ObamaCare Damage: UPS to Drop 15,000 Spouse From Coveage Due to ObamaCare

Remember this pledge from our President??? “…you can keep your plan…” Well, once again, reality shows Obama to be a poor liar.  There have already been tenms of thousands of people, if not more, to lose their insurance because of ObamaCare.  Recently, UPS announced that 15,000 spouses will be dropped from their plan.  The reason?  ObamaCare.  United Parcel Service Inc. plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based logistics company points to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News. […]

Elections Have Consequences: White Castle Considers Hiring no More Full Time Employees

People were warned that a vote for Obama would cost them, but far too many were in  spigot cities, or were low information voters that bleated to the MSM’s beat, and tapped a touch screen for Obama.  Now, many more are paying the price.  White Castle, the well known burger joint, is joining other companies in considering if they can stay in business while paying for insurance, or paying ObamaCare fines.  The fast food restaurant best known for its small, square burgers and role in the 2004 movie “Harold and Kumar go to White Castle,” is considering only hiring part-time workers […]

ObamaCare Damage: Ohio Rates to Rise 88%!

It’s ObamaCare Damage time yet again!  You were warned.  We told you that if people re-elected Obama, that people would be paying more for their health insurance.  Frankly, it was not due to any special insights or skills, unless you consider grasp of the obvious to be superhuman.  So, armed with nothing more than math and common sense, we were able to predict the increases in health insurance premiums.  Doug Ross has the latest example… It’s another success story for central planning! Avik Roy explains: …on Thursday, the Ohio Department of Insurance announced that, based on the rates submitted by […]

Regal Entertainment Group Reduces Worker Hours to Comply with ObamaCare

It’s a shame that so many Obama voter are suffering the consequences of their vote.  But, then again, being a “low information voter” is a choice.  The information was out there, freely available.  People could  have looked up the facts and known that they were in for it if the voted Democrat.  But, too many listened to the MSM, or their union boss, and now, they are paying the price-literally and figuratively.  FOX News has the latest example, the Regal Entertainment Group, The nation’s largest movie theater chain has cut the hours of thousands of employees, saying in a company […]

After Over a Century in Business, Oberdorfer Killed by Obama Economy

It seems that the Obama economy and ObamaCare did in Oberdorfer, a Dewitt, NY foundry, that two world wars, the Great Depression, organized labor, and event he Carter presidency.  It could not, however, survive a second term of Barak Obama.  The Lonely Conservative has the details.  The “2008 recession” is the recession that never ends. The unit which started its operation in late 19th century had been a major producer of cylinder heads and other vital military items. Oberdorfer was the specialized manufacturer of complicated aluminium castings for airplane engines. The company which survived many recessions in its long run, […]
