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.

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.

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 […]

None of them are in the spin business inside the Beltway. Every one of them has the responsibility for coming […]

ObamaCare Stupifies Your Doctor Visits

Under the abomination known as ObamaCare, patients are entitled to a “free” yearly physical exam.  However, as one doctor points out, there may be little that a doctor can do, other than follow the mandated format for that visit.  Here are some excerpts from Newsbusters… In a Saturday PJ Media column (“A Physician’s New Reality: Patients Ask Me to Break the Law”), Dr. Peter Weiss, relays several important and ugly realities of what life will be like under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare, which could easily have been reported any time during the past couple of years […]

Just in Case You Don’t Know Why ObamaCare Kills Jobs…

I’ve seen quite a bit of shock lately, as liberals see how ObamaCare is actually functioning in practice.  With it’s key components kicking in in just a short period of time, employees are cutting hours, and laying off workers.  While Conservative bloggers and other outlets have been discussing this for over a year, most of the public are now seeing the results, after it is too late.  For a good wrap-up of what is happening, kindly consider this, from Chicks on the Right… In case you weren’t already painfully aware, here’s the skinny on why unemployment will skyrocket in the […]

Old Inglorious

The ’60?s have returned — the 1860?s, that is — as almost a million disaffected citizens in all 50 states have decided that, when it comes to Barack Obama’s America, they’d be better off out than in: White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation But, as Texas Fred aptly points out, “Freedom is NOT won with a petition!” If venting helps, by all means vent; after all, they can’t kill everybody.  Oops! It seems they can. Obama’s federales have stockpiled enough ammo to plant 4 hollow points center mass into every man, woman, and child in the country. Elections have consequences.
