Hawaii’s ObamaCare Insurance Exchange Closing Down: Will Still Cost Taxpayers Nearly A Quarter Of A Billion Dollars

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Twitchy. So ObamaCare is driving costs up, huh? What was it President Obama said about how ObamaCare would affect healthcare costs? Oh yeah, now I remember! “I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.” June, 2007 Yeaaahhh, riiggghhhtttt… “This legislation will also lower costs for families and for businesses and for the federal government, reducing our deficit by over $1 trillion […]

The Grandpappy Of ObamaCare Circles The Drain: UK’s NHS In Trouble

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. You mean the only problem with socialism is that you REALLY DO run out of other people’s money to spend?? African AIDS Tourists Overwhelming England’s NHS Writing at The Commentator, Vincent Cooper shines a spotlight on the fiscal tsunami engulfing the United Kingdom. …the NHS is so short of resources that patients in some areas had to be treated in a hospital car park. But if that is true, was not Nigel Farage right to condemn the health service for putting the treatment of foreigners above the needs of those who have paid […]

Thanks To ObamaCare Nearly 200,000 In Colorado Will Lose Health Plans

Hat/Tip to Cardigan at And the Lie of the Year is the gift that just keeps on giving, unfortunately; and 200,000 Coloradans are learning this the hard way. Gee, I wonder how many of those folks losing health care coverage in that Blue state voted for Obama? Buyers remorse, anyone? ~~~~~~~~~~ ObamaCare is causing even more Americans to lose their health insurance policies. Even if they like their policies, they can’t keep them. This time it’s happening in Colorado. Nearly 200,000 insured Coloradans will lose their health-care plans next year under the state’s embattled ObamaCare exchange, Connect for Health […]

British Child Cannot Get Life Saving Treatment There, Authorities Have Family Arrested When They Try to Get it Overseas

Government, when given sufficient power, becomes totalitarian.  It ALWAYS does.   For the latest example, the British NHS is again trying to kill patients, and even had the family of a child arrested for the horrific crime of seeking medical treatment overseas.  Townhall has more… What makes today’s story different, though, is that the bureaucracy not only is denying care to a small child, but also seeking to prevent the family from seeking treatment elsewhere. Check out these excerpts from a blood-chilling story in USA Today. The parents of a child suffering from a severe brain tumor signaled Monday they would […]

Obamacare Now Pays for Gender Reassignment

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. I don’t need gender reassignment, but I do have this bunyon… Transgender Americans seeking gender reassignment surgeries are finding relief through Obamacare, The Daily Beast reported on Monday. Federal laws banning health insurance discrimination against transgender people, combined with Obamacare’s ban on denying coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, have paved a path for transgender patients who wish to make the transition from one gender to another.  “The federal anti-discrimination regulations have yet to be written, but California insurance regulators have said that companies must treat transgender patients the same as other patients,” reports The Daily Beast. […]

ObamaCare Forces Insurance Companies to Spend YOUR Money

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. ObamaCare Wants Your Financial Information so Insurance Companies can Enroll You WITHOUT Your permission AND Charge You! . . ACA Requires Insurance Companies Enroll You In Plans Without Your Permission Today I received a letter from my insurance company Horizon Blue Cross, Blue Shield of New Jersey (“BCBSNJ”).  They alerted me that my plan (which already went up from $187 to $216) would now be rising again. I had expected this day would come but what I did not expect was that the ACA empowered insurance companies who had a person’s checking account on file to automatically enroll […]

Illegal Aliens Make a Video to Demand Free Health Care

The left is once again doing what it is best at; tugging on your heart strings and controlling the language of whatever particular cause they’re trying to push. This time they’ve managed to combine two hot button issues – ‘free’ health care & illegal immigration. It doesn’t matter to them that there is no such thing as ‘free’ health care. It doesn’t matter to them that a country cannot survive as long as it has open borders. No, the California Endowment is pushing the idea that the people who came to this country illegally have a right to ‘free’ health […]

ObamaCare Architect Caught in Huge Lie, Coins New Term: “Speak-O”

Hat/Tip to Busted: Obamacare Architect Caught in Epic Lie, Confirming Opponents’ Argument So the left got another defeat in the courts regarding ObamaCare, and what do they do? Well besides going apoplectic, they haul out the spin doctors and let them go to work distorting the truth. When a DC Circuit Court of Appeals panel released its Obamacare-related decision earlier this week, the Left’s self-appointed “wonk” class kicked into damage control overdrive. The three-judge panel ruled that the ‘Affordable’ Care Act’s explicit language proscribed the distribution of subsidies to anyone who did not enroll through state-based marketplaces. The fallout […]

ObamaCare Architect Ezekiel Emanuel: “So be prepared to kiss your insurance company good-bye forever”

Ever since ObamaCare was proposed, Conservatives and Libertarians were warning everyone that the actual intent was to kill the medical and insurance industry, and set up a single payer system.  The then spanking new Conservative Hideout 1.0 was in on that.  Here is a small selection of posts from way back when… Obama’s History of Favoring Single Payer Single Payer: A Faulty Rationale You Mean That ObamaCare is Cloward-Piven for Private Insurance? Exploring the Intent of ObamaCare: Donald Berwick and Ezekiel Emanuel Single Payer: A Faulty Rationale I even bothered to make a video about it back in 2009… Of […]

Simple Questions About Obamacare

To the American Left, please answer a few questions about Obamacare. How can the ACA be so good when it is going to drive tens of millions of Americans out of their existing coverage when the employer mandate kicks in?   What about the mandate forcing folks to act against their faith? Their 1st Amendment rights are violated under the ACA by making contraceptives, sterilization and aborto-facient drugs are mandatory for employers to provide.   What about the over 20 new taxes that are hitting the American people for a half a trillion dollars? These are levied against medical innovators, […]

ObamaCare Fail Day: Democrat Doom in 2014?

Will the democrats fall on their swords in the 2014 mid-terms?  We might predict that, especially with the devastation caused by ObamaCare.  However, what if they believe the excuse making/blame placing machine that is the Obama administration, and their lackeys in the MSM?  In that case, many of them will openly share the nasty ideas that reside in their little black hearts.  Stacy McCain has an example of that trait in action… If you want to see a microcosm of the problems looming for Democrats in their 2014 mid-term campaign to recapture the House, look no further than New York’s […]

Tragic Irony Overload: Former NHS Director Dies After Surgery Canceled Four Times!

Back when ObamaCare was being debated, and what I mean by debated is that the Democrats had closed door meetings without Republicans, I covered the goings on at the British National health Service (NHS).  It’s single payer, and single provider.  And, that tends to kill a lot of people.  Here are some examples… Babies: There’s a Death Panel for That! ObamaCare Damage, a Glimpse of out Future: NHS Commits De facto Euthanasia with 130,000 a Year Socialized Medicine Kills: Brit Doctor Condemned to Death by NHS Does Single Payer Kill? Why Yes, Yes it Does Does Single Payer Kill? The […]

Government Now Decides Who Lives and Who Dies

We’ve been warning people that allowing the government to control the health care of all Americans will lead to unelected bureaucrats deciding who lives and who dies.  Here is a great example… For those who may not yet know, Sarah Murnaghan is a 10-year-old girl from Pennsylvania, who suffers from end-stage Cystic Fibrosis. She needs a lung transplant, and is on the UNOS waiting list. Unfortunately, child donor lungs are extremely rare, and the cut-off age for adult lungs is 12. Sarah is medically eligible to receive adult donor lungs, but can not be placed on that list due to current […]

Babies: There’s a Death Panel for That!

Sorry for the flippant title, but it’s so horrifying that I had to make a absurdity of it.  Sadly, the truth is far more disturbing.  It seems that that the NHS, the British National Health System, has set up a protocol, or death panel, to deal with the “less than desirable” babies born in the UK.  GateWay Pundit has more… The Daily Mail reported: Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. […]

ObamaCare Damage, a Glimpse of out Future: NHS Commits De facto Euthanasia with 130,000 a Year

Now that ObamaCare has been deemed “constitutional” by the SCOTUS, we have some more glimpses into out future.  There are many aspects to this future that are rather chilling.  The latest is the revelation that the British NHS commits an informal form of euthanasia to deal with the overcrowding and lack of resources in their single payer system.  Life News has the details… Shocking news from England today has top NHS officials indicating doctors acting in the UK government-run health program annually kill as many as 130,000 patients prematurely because of overcrowding at hospitals, medical clinics and nursing homes. Professor […]

If SCOTUS knocks down Obamacare, fight over?

free our health care now banner

So if the Supreme Court overturns Obamacare and rules it unconstitutional, is the fight over? Not hardly, says Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute. Looks like we will have just begun to fight, to paraphrase a certain famous Naval Captain. It is reported in the linked article below that California may well enact their own version of Obamacare if it is struck down. This would probably precipitate other states to follow. Basically we have a long, protracted fight on our hands, but as also pointed out in the article, the folks on our side are not waiting for the […]

Obamney’s Healthcare?


This is a video I first saw on Flopping Aces. I thought it would be a good idea to post it here and urge all of our loyal viewers here at CH 2.0 to help it go viral. In my opinion, Romney has two Achilles’ heels. Romney Care and his wealth. This is what I posted on Flopping Aces about this very subject” Romney has two huge weaknesses when he runs against Obama: Government run health care, as the video points out and his wealth. With Obama’s relentless attacks on “millionaires and billionaires,” Romney will be the perfect foil. The […]

More Reasons to Avoid Socialized Medicine

Over the last two-plus years, I’ve been writing about socialized medicine, and why we should avoid it like the plague.  Here are some more reasons from Sweden… A man from Nyköping in eastern Sweden has been denied a power wheelchair despite having had both of his legs amputated as the local health authority remained “uncertain if the impairment was permanent”. Now, I’ve never been to Sweden, but to my knowledge, Swedes are just like the rest of us in that they do not regenerate limbs! The man had his legs amputated after a long struggle with diabetes, but despite being unable get […]
