Record Number Of Hospitals Close: ABC News Article Never Blames The “Affordable Care Act”

Hat/Tip to Remember when Obama uttered these famous words lies over and over and over ad nauseam? Well here are a few reminders, of the nearly 40 times that Obama said them: “If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.  If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too.  The only change you’ll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold.” Barack Obama, June 6, 2009. “No matter how we reform health care, I intend to keep this promise:  If you like your doctor, you’ll be able to keep your doctor; if […]

Is There A Universe Where The GOP “Leaders” Aren’t Morons? I Want To Live In That One

    Once upon a time I naively thought that electing a Republican congress would put the brakes on Obama’s lawless destruction of our once-great nation. Silly me. Why did these bozos just vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General? Do they want more gun control? Do they like seeing unlimited late-term abortions? Do they enjoy it when “law enforcement” seizes private property without due process? I suppose that they do. Which makes Mitch McConnell no better than Dingy Harry. Need more proof of that? OK, Ole Mitch is gonna bail out ObamaCare’s subsidies if SCOTUS strikes them down. […]

SCOTUS Smacks Obama Down On The (Un)Affordable Care Act

  Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. So we DO still have some rights in this country, huh? Who’d a thunk it? Almost 6 1/2 years into his presidency, President Barack Obama still hasn’t read that part about freedom of religion in the First Amendment. At least, I’m assuming he hasn’t. If he has, then the former constitutional law professor should have no excuse why his administration keeps on losing so many cases involving Obamacare’s contraception mandate in front of the Supreme Court. The latest case involved Roman Catholic organizations in the state of Pennsylvania. In a ruling late Wednesday night, Justice Samuel […]

My Good Luck… I won the Nigerian lottery according to an email from an actual Nigerian Prince!!   He holds the sum of ONE MILLION DOLLARS in my name and he wants to send it to me FREE! All I have to do is give him my bank account numbers and send him 500 cash in US dollars, to show my good faith so he can transfer the money! But wait!

Another ObamaCare Success Story: 1 In 5 New Jersey Residents Are Enrolled In Medicaid!

  Sooner or later, everyone will be dependent on the government. At least that seems to be the trend. Medicaid, the public health insurance program expanded under the Affordable Care Act, now covers nearly one out of every five New Jersey residents, according to the latest enrollment figures. More than 420,000 people signed up for insurance since New Jersey allowed more people to into the program, according to Valerie Harr, director of the division of medical assistance and health services for the N.J. Department of Human Services. About 80,000 of those people already qualified for the program under the old […]

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 […]

ObamaCare In A Self-Created Death Spiral

  Hat/Tip to Could it really be crumbling under its own weight? With premiums rising and the young and healthy dropping their coverage, signs are that the death spiral is well underway for the Affordable Care Act. Even if SCOTUS gives the government yet another gift and rules that the Feds can give out subsidies to citizens in states that didn’t set up their own exchanges, it won’t be enough to save this monstrosity from imploding. According to Sean Parnell at The Washington Times, Obamacare is repeating the same mistakes made by 8 states in the 1990s. Basically, you […]

Today’s ObamaCare Trainwreck Update: The IRS Taketh, Small Businesses Still Getting Hosed

  Can you believe it’s been 5 long years since ObamaCare went into effect? Can you believe there are still deluded people out there who like Obamacare? Not for long. The pain, it is coming. Half of the households that received subsidies to help pay health insurance premiums last year under the Affordable Care Act will probably have to repay some of that money to the federal government, according to a new analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Sorry suckers! Taxpayers generally receive subsidies in advance, with the amount based on their projected household income for the year the insurance […]

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 […]

Supreme Court Will Never Decide Obamacare’s Fate

Hat/Tip to Scott Rasmussen at Right Wing News. An excellent Op-Ed by pollster Scott Rasmussen, presented here, in its entirety. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There has been a lot of discussion lately about whether the Supreme Court will save or destroy the president’s health care law, known to many as ObamaCare. At least one writer went so far as to suggest the court might be preparing to undo the nation’s safety net. To suggest that such talk is absurd is a gross understatement. Remember, we have no idea what the Court will decide. Some people following the oral arguments closely concluded that supporters […]

More ObamaCare Incompetence: HHS Sent Out 800,000 Bad Tax Forms To ObamaCare Enrollees

  These clowns can’t get anything right. Today’s Obamacare debacle? 800,000 bogus tax forms. The White House has some bad news for those ObamaCare-insured taxpayers who prepared for early tax filing — or actually had already filed. That form that they sent out about premiums and subsidies? More than ten percent of them turned out to be wrong, so … you’ll have to either wait to calculate your taxes, or have a do-over. They’ll mail corrected forms “soon.” Hey, filing your taxes wasn’t painful enough, right? It’s not just the federal exchange, either. The Covered California system issued 100,000 erroneous […]

More ObamaCare Problems: California Sends Out 100,000 Incorrect Tax Forms

  Hat/Tip to YahooNews. From the laughably awful website, to the hundreds of broken promises, ObamaCare is the headache to Americans that just keeps on giving. California’s health exchange apologized Thursday for sending about 100,000 incorrect tax forms last month to people who purchased private coverage, a mistake that could delay tax filings or force households to amend their taxes. Covered California acknowledged that it sent out inaccurate coverage information on 1095-A forms and is in the process of sending out revised forms, said spokesman James Scullary. In all, the state sent out 800,000 forms for the first time this […]

Obama Rewrites The Law Again, IRS Waives Obamacare Subsidy Clawback Penalties

    What do you do when you realize that millions of low-information voters are going to get hosed by your signature piece of legislation? Well, if you’re Barack Obama, you unilaterally decide not to enforce the inconvenient provisions of that law. So it should come as no surprise that the IRS has “clarified” how they’ll recapture excess Obamacare subsidies come April 15th. They won’t. Not right away anyway. If you got health insurance subsidies last year, and you’re worried that you got too much in federal tax credits and will be faced with a huge tax bill for repayment, […]

Six Million Taxpayers To Owe IRS For ObamaCare Tax…Wait, It’s Not A Tax, So, Penalty Or Fine Or Oh Alright, It’s A Tax

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. In 2009, President Obama and George Stephanopoulos got into a feisty discussion on whether ObamaCare was a tax or a penalty or a fine or a…*sigh* Anyway, it went something like this: GS: “Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?” To which, Obama offered his standard, rambling response… BO: “Well, hold on a second, George. Here’s what’s happening. You and I are both paying $900, on average—our families—in higher premiums because of uncompensated care. Now what I’ve said is that if you can’t afford […]

CBO: Obama To Leave Gargantuan Deficits For Next President

  Hat/Tip to Conn Carroll at 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 […]

Obama Proposes Free Community College, Says It Is A Right

First, we had the classification of health care as a right. How many times have we heard that broken mantra from the left, saying it should be guaranteed? Too many to count. To make sure that right was guaranteed, President Obama and his friends on the left shoved ObamaCare down our throats. It was something that most Americans neither wanted or needed, but we have it, regardless. To describe how it is “working”, or not, would take several thousand words. Isn’t that just grand? A new government program that guarantees all Americans receive health care. Or so we are told […]

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 […]
