NEW BATTLEGROUND POLL: OBAMACARE HAS PUT GRANNY IN A VERY SURLY MOOD

This is, of course, why the President and his congressional accomplices are begging young voters to actually show up at the polls for once. When Granny becomes angry, bad things happen on election day: Democrats have glimpsed their biggest threat this fall, and she is Grandma … they’ve seen the polling data on senior citizens, and it’s [...]

OBOT DOC SUGGESTS THAT FAT TEA PARTIERS JUSTIFY GOVT TAKEOVER OF HEALTH CARE

At the Quincy, Illinois Tea Party rally (the same one to which Team Obama called the riot police), Bob McCarty captured this video of a local physician who delivered himself of the following remark as he waited with the rest of the sheeple to see Obama: You know, the people who is in that Tea [...]

OBAMACARE TO REFUSE PATIENTS WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS

One of the primary justifications offered by the President and his congressional accomplices for defying the public will on “reform” involved the benefits Obamacare would provide patients with pre-existing conditions. Well, that turns out to have been another of Obama’s trademark whoppers:   About 200,000 Americans whose illnesses have kept them from getting regular health insurance will [...]

OBAMACARE’S BACKERS FORCED TO REFUTE OBAMA TO DEFEND INDIVIDUAL MANDATE

Remember last September, when the President was challenged by George Stephanopoulos on the question of whether the individual mandate was a tax? To refresh your memory, here’s the video in which Obama claims the mandate “is absolutely not a tax increase?: Now, however, Obamacare’s backers are faced with a serious court challenge to the “reform? [...]

FDA INCREASES PRICE OF DRUG BY 10,000%

If you want an example of how government meddling in health care raises rather than lowers costs, you need look no further than the FDA’s idiotic policy on a venerable gout medication called colchicine: Gout sufferers can thank the FDA for the 10,000% increase in the price of an old treatment. An old drug used [...]

TEAM OBAMA SETS GOONS ON GEEZERS

This ia a scream. Apparently, the President’s staff was so unnerved by the Tea Party rally in Quincy, Illinois (Obama was speaking at the nearby convention center) that they actually called riot police. Here’s a pic of the Tea Partiers with the goons in the background—a dangerous looking bunch, eh? And, if that pic doesn’t cause [...]

VIDEO: A CONSERVATIVE IN HOLLYWOOD

A very interesting interview with writer Andrew Klavan, who is that loneliest of all creatures—a Hollywood conservative. Talk about being a stranger in a strange land. Here’s how he describes it: There’s a culture in Hollywood where you are a left-winger; you can speak very openly – even in business meetings. If you’re a conservative, [...]

WHITE HOUSE COVERED UP UNFAVORABLE OBAMACARE COST REPORT

Yet more evidence of the fundamental dishonesty of this entire administration. According to AmSpec blog, the recent unfavorable cost analysis performed by Medicare’s Office of the Actuary was sent to the Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, more than a week before the House vote on Obamacare: [The report] had been submitted to the office of HHS [...]

VIDEO: OBAMA’S JOBLESS TOUR

A funny RNC send-up of Obama’s “Main Street tour.” It points out the high unemployment rates in the states he has visited—-Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri, etc. The video also highlights the huge write-downs (which, BTW, have been declared legitimate and necessary) that companies in these states have had to absorb due to the passage of Obamacare:

OBAMA’S BUDGET DIRECTOR EXPLAINS HOW DEATH PANEL WILL RATION HEALTH CARE

Oops. I forgot for a moment that the Thought Police have forbidden us to call it a “death panel.” The permitted label is “Independent Payment Advisory Board.” But when OMB Director Peter Orszag describes its powers, it sounds an awful lot like a … well … you know …  This Independent Payment Advisory Board has statutory power to make [...]
