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 […]

In 2014 Nancy Pelosi Doesn’t Know Jonathan Gruber: In 2009, She Mentions Him By Name During Presser

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. See the problem with the older politicians like Nancy Pelosi is that they forget that the internet exists. Or maybe they don’t understand how it works, I mean after all, that’s what staffers and interns are for, right? Well anyway, she either doesn’t know, or doesn’t care because she has done it again. That’s right. She’s lied. * GASP!! * And don’t expect this article to feature her lies down through the years the last two days. We just don’t have that kind of bandwidth! I mean, who do you think we are? WeaselZippers? But I digress. The […]

ObamaCare & Transparency don’t go hand-in-hand: taxpayers foot the bill

Hat/Tip to Political Calculations. “I will also hold myself as President to a new standard of openness. Going forward, anytime the American people want to know something that I or a former President wants to withhold, we will have to consult with the Attorney General and the White House Counsel, whose business it is to ensure compliance with the rule of law. Information will not be withheld just because I say so. It will be withheld because a separate authority believes my request is well grounded in the Constitution. Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and […]

No Religious Freedoms for Businesses?

In a recent Op-Ed, Mr. Leonard Pitts, Jr. tried to make the case that violating someone’s 1st Amendment rights is the same as the idea that one’s personal liberty ends where the next person’s begins. Let me also use a quote to make my point.  “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.” A direct quote correctly attributed to President Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Henry L. Pierce, April, 1859. In this letter, he was declining an invitation to speak at an event in Boston, honoring […]

The Big “Stinkburger” … Obamacare

I’m at work right now and I have to admit I’m in a very good mood. Some liberals didn’t take my previous post very kindly and that does sadden me somewhat … NOT!! Regardless of how many times they say it or how loud they proclaim that people are swarming the system to try to get signed up,  and  millions of people are rushing to get insurance.  And  America is now cognizant of the fact that Obamacare is a good deal after all,  it doesn’t change the fact that Obamacare is one big “stinkburger!”  (I wish I’d have thought of […]

Obama, the Super President

I don’t get it. Everything that Barack Obama has done has been such a success I just don’t understand why he doesn’t fix the so-called part-time job problem. I mean the stimulus created millions of shovel-ready jobs. According to Nancy Pelosi, Obamacare created four million more jobs. His $535 million loan to Solyndra kept the company from going under for a couple of months, it wasn’t his fault they mis-managed the money. The $3 billion he invested into Cash For Clunkers made it possible for millions of people who normally wouldn’t be able to afford a new car, to get one. Operation […]

ObamaCare Damage: 100% Health Insurance Premium Increases for Next Year

In a follow-up to a story we covered last December, the CEO of Aetna,Mark Bertolini, warned of 100% health insurance premium increases for next year.  Doug Ross (no relation) has more… I’m guessing the administration’s infamous “Enemies List” just got bigger by one. Aetna CEO Warns of Approaching Health Insurance ‘Premium Rate Shock’ in 2014 for Consumers and Others Under Accountable Care Act Steep increases in insurance costs may leave patients with less money to cover deductibles and copayments for clinical laboratory tests Next year, consumers and small businesses can expect what one health insurance CEO says will be, “Premium […]

Happy Thanksgiving from Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services

Hello Americans of all races, religions and sexual preferences!  I am Kathleen Sebelius the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. And yes, I am a human woman. No.  I am not a Romulan woman who’s had her ears scaled back.  I am a fully functioning human though many have mistaken me for a Romulan.  Silly isn’t it?  I mean I’m not even closely related to Vulcans like the Romulans are.  Look, I am not an animal, I am a human being!  So knock it off! Anyway.  What did I want to talk about? Oh yes. As you […]

This Regulation Nation Will Explode Under An Obama Second Term

Americans are learning more about the “fiscal cliff” approaching at the beginning of next year, when tax rates for families and small businesses are set to spike and new taxes in President Obama’s health-care spending law take effect. But unless there’s real change in Washington, we’re also headed for a steep “regulatory cliff” that could compound the damage. The above quote is a warning from Ron Portman in an opinion piece he wrote for the Wall Street Journal this past Thursday. This article is worth a read because he talks about a number of stifiling regulations that the Obama administration has put […]
