CBO: Obama To Leave Gargantuan Deficits For Next President

  Hat/Tip to Conn Carroll at TownHall.com. Obama will still be screwing America and Americans even after he is out of office. His policies will explode the debt and deficits unless measures are taken to curb the insane spending his programs will incur. Federal deficits may have been falling since the end of the recent recession, but thanks to spending increases in major health care programs, including ObamaCare, deficits are set to explode in 2017, according to a new report by the Congressional Budget Office. Thanks to the recent recession and President Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus, the federal budget deficit reached an all […]

ObamaCare Penalty: Big Shock At Tax Time

Hat/Tip to Tom Howell, Jr at the Washington Times. President Obama said that it’s absolutely not a tax, except when his lawyers argued for the law in front of the Supreme Court, then it WAS a tax. More to the point, it is Big Government getting into our wallets, tax or not – We The People are left holding the bag. Those Americans who didn’t get health insurance last year could be in for a rude awakening when the IRS asks them to fork over their ObamaCare penalty — and it could be a lot more than the $95 many […]

Thanks ObamaCare, NJ Health Insurance Premiums Rising Faster Than Ever

  Nineteen times Dear Leader promised he’d reduce our health insurance premiums by $2,500 per year. Repeat after me: Barack Obama is a lying sack of shit. Since ObamaCare kicked in, health insurance premiums in New Jersey have risen faster than ever. Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the cost of premiums in New Jersey each year have risen faster than the national average, according to a study released today by a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank. Premiums for New Jersey employer-sponsored health coverage climbed an average of 4.4 percent a year from 2003 through 2010 to […]

Supreme Court: Mark Levin Submits Amicus Brief In ObamaCare Subsidy Battle

  Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich at TownHall.com. The Godfather of the Modern Conservative Movement is once again defending liberty and attacking the never-ending statism from the left. Conservative radio host and Landmark Legal Foundation President Mark Levin has submitted an amicus brief in support of the petitioners in King v. Burwell, the ObamaCare legal case that will be heard by the Supreme Court on March 5, 2015. The case addresses whether “the Internal Revenue Service may permissibly promulgate regulations to extend tax-credit subsidies to coverage purchased through exchanges established by the federal government under Section 1321 of the Patient Protection […]

Ben Carson: ‘Bunch of Crap’ That Obamacare Can’t Be Undone

  Hat/Tip to Melissa Clyne at Newsmax. Ben Carson spoke out recently about the stupidity behind the idea that ObamaCare cannot be eliminated. Dr. Ben Carson said Friday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” that he doesn’t think any of the ObamaCare architects actually believed the program would work, but that they viewed the law as “moving the ball toward the goal” of a government-controlled, single-payer system. “Healthcare is a gigantic issue, and there’s no question that the system was broken and that we needed to do something about it,” Carson said. “What we did not need to do is create […]

Obama Pulls The Rug Out From Under NJ Doctors’ Medicaid Reimbursement Rates

  For two years, Barack Obama pretended to care about Medicaid’s low reimbursement rates. He gave doctors a much-needed pay increase, to keep pace with Medicare and private insurance plans. But at the stroke of midnight on January 1st, the party’s over. When federal lawmakers planned the massive expansion of Medicaid as part of the Affordable Care Act, they included a big enticement to physicians — a significant, but temporary, pay increase. Although the pay increase was not tied to Medicaid expansion, New Jersey accepted the deal. Some 300,000 additional state residents have enrolled in Medicaid in the last year. […]

Vermont’s Granola Grifters Give Up On Single Payer Health Insurance

  Even in the most socialist state in the nation, socialism fails. Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is canceling his dream plan to create a single-payer health system in the state, he announced Wednesday. “I am not going to undermine the hope of achieving critically important health care reforms for this state by pushing prematurely for single payer when it is not the right time for Vermont,” Shumlin said in a statement Wednesday. “In my judgment, now is not the right time to ask our legislature to take the step of passing a financing plan for Green Mountain Care.” The problem, […]

ObamaCare, So Successful That People Can’t Afford To Use It

  Hey Obamabots, what good is “affordable” health insurance if it costs you too much to use it? In a survey taken in the fall, The Commonwealth Fund, a private, independent health care research organization, found that about 40 percent of adults nationwide who had high-deductible private insurance plans reported delaying care because of the cost. In another, the Gallup Poll, which annually asks about health care cost and use every November, reported that the percentage of Americans who had insurance and chose not to go to a health care professional for a routine visit or a need because of […]

Epic: Phil Kerpen Pwns Gruber Saying, “Thanks For Helping Us Destroy Sh*tty Law You Passed”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Ouch. Via Truth Revolt: Phil Kerpen, an author, syndicated columnist, and president of American Commitment, shook hands with Jonathan Gruber immediately following Tuesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing and said, “Thank you for helping us destroy the sh*tty law you passed.” Kerpen announced his pwnership via Twitter:   Right after hearing I shook Gruber’s hand, looked him in the eye, and said: “Thank you for helping us destroy the shitty law you passed.” — Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) December 9, 2014 And Kerpen seems intent on keeping Gruber honest. Gruber’s testimony today that the mandate is NOT a tax […]

ObamaCare Architect Jonathan Gruber States Under Oath: “I Am Not The Architect of ObamaCare”

  Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich at TownHall.com. “Hey! I’m a bad guy, but ObamaCare is GREAT!!” That’s basically what Jonathan Gruber would have you believe according to his House Oversight Committee testimony. During sworn congressional testimony in front of the House Oversight Committee Tuesday, MIT Professor and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber attempted to distance himself from the Obama administration as lawmakers grilled him with questions about the deception used to pass the legislation. He also tried to distinguish his comments about deception from the content and impact of the Affordable Care Act. “I did not write Governor Mitt Romney’s health […]

HHS Secretary Syivia Burwell On ObamaCare: “Affordability Is Still A High Hurdle”

    ObamaCare is “working” dontcha know, except for that pesky affordability thing. Sylvia Burwell came to Newark today, to shill for her boss’s signature statutory sensation, and she inadvertantly told the truth. Burwell acknowledged that affordability is still a high hurdle for many, however. Affordability, whether in the cost of the premium, the deductible, co-payments or co-insurance “is one of the fundamental issues” keeping people from getting health insurance, she said. “We need to work on putting downward pressure on those costs,” Burwell said. So, a fundamental issue with ObamaCare is affordability. Even though its official name is The […]

Surprise! The Media Has Spent More Time On GOP Staffer Comments Than On The Gruber Scandal…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Let’s see. The architect of ObamaCare lies to the American people – Nah! That’s not news! Some unknown GOP staffer makes stupid statements on her Facebook page – Now THAT’S news!!! Via Newsbusters: On Sunday and Monday, the broadcast networks seized on the personal Facebook comments of mid-level congressional staffer Elizabeth Lauten criticizing the Obama daughters – devoting over 14 minutes of national news air time to the controversy in the period of two days. However, it took those same networks several days to even notice the video comments of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber crediting “the […]

ObamaCare Facing Slew of New Problems

  Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. They say that a fine wine only gets better with age. Well, if that’s the case, then it is painfully obvious that ObamaCare contains zero percent alcohol. Because in contrast, it only gets worse with age. The winter months are bringing a fresh set of challenges for the second season of ObamaCare just as a new batch of potential customers are deciding whether to purchase their insurance through the nation’s healthcare exchanges. The enrollment period has gone much more smoothly this time around, after last year’s HealthCare.gov debacle left potential customers confused, dismayed, and […]

CNN’s Jake Tapper Attacks ObamaCare: “Obama Promised ObamaCare Wouldn’t Do Exactly What Gruber Says it Will Do”

Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at TownHall.com.  The vast majority of the American electorate has known the clusterf*ck that is ObamaCare since it was passed shoved down our throats in 2009. And one can only guess that MIT economist, Jonathan Gruber began to feel that enough time had passed since then that last year he could openly brag about the lies, lack of transparency and “stupidity” of the American voter. Well as Guy Benson over at TownHall.com reports, CNN’s Jake Tapper is having none of it. Earlier this year, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was caught dead-to-rights in a brazen lie that undermines the […]

ObamaCare: Now Less Popular Than Toe Fungus, Which By The Way, Isn’t Covered

    Fewer Americans than ever like Obamacare. And more Americans than ever hate Obamacare. Can I get an “Amen!“? As the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period begins, 37% of Americans say they approve of the law, one percentage point below the previous low in January. Fifty-six percent disapprove, the high in disapproval by one point. The more you know… Americans were slightly more positive than negative about the law around the time of the 2012 election, but they have consistently been more likely to disapprove than approve of the law in all surveys that have been conducted […]

Former WH Czar Contradicts President Obama on Gruber’s Role in ObamaCare

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Steve Rattner, Obama’s former “Auto Czar” who helped to give the UAW controlling interest in GM and Chrysler, and effectively thwarting Federal Bankruptcy Laws in the process, is back in the news. It seems that cars isn’t all this guy paid attention to. But before we get to Mr. Rattner, let’s take a look at how President Obama answered a question about Jonathan Gruber’s statements that have been popping up faster than a mafia hit, not properly tied down in the East River. . . So President Obama, “just found out” about Gruber’s SIX videos […]

It’s Pretty Bad When A Political Hack Like David Axelrod Calls You Stupid

      Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. When a life-long Democratic Political Hack with strong ties to Communism publicly calls you “stupid,” you know your career has jumped the shark. With each passing day bringing new videos of MIT Economist and one of the architects of ObamaCare, Jonathan Gruber calling the American electorate stupid and now, racist; one can only wonder how much Joe Biden is jumping for joy, ebullient that it is not he, with his foot in his mouth, this time.   As one who worked hard to make ACA and its benefits clear, let me say: if you looked […]
