MORE BERWICK HYPOCRISY

Donald Berwick, whom our flailing President recently installed as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid with a recess appointment, has long passed himself off  as a champion of transparency. It would appear, however, that this is yet another situation in which Dr. Berwick has two standards—-one for himself and another for everyone else. Before he became CMS [...]

COLORADO BECOMES LATEST STATE TO PUT ANTI-OBAMACARE AMENDMENT ON BALLOT

On August 3, the voters of Missouri overwhelmingly voted for Proposition-C, which forbids the government (state or federal) from forcing the citizens of the “Show-Me-State” to buy health insurance. It now appears that the voters of Colorado will also get the opportunity to repudiate Obamacare’s individual mandate: Voters will get a chance in November to decide [...]

TAKE OBAMACARE … PLEASE

If you really think about it, it’s actually pretty difficult to believe ObamaCare supporters are serious about the claims they make. My latest column for the American Spectator looks at these people as comedians: Among the most hilarious ObamaCare claims is that it will reduce the federal budget deficit. No less a jokester than Paul Krugman produced this gag in [...]

VIDEO: FUNNY ANGLE AD ON THE REID-PELOSI-OBAMA “LOVE TRIANGLE?

The Nevada Senate race between Sharron Angle and the current Senate Majority Leader is, of course, one of the most closely watched contests of the midterms. Needless to say, the Democrats and the “news? media have told lie after lie about Angle. But, as this ad demonstrates, the truth is a much deadlier weapon—particularly if [...]

VIDEO: WHEAT, WEED AND OBAMACARE

The argument used by the President and his congressional accomplices to justify Obamacare’s individual mandate is that it is permitted by the Constitution’s commerce clause. This video from reason.tv explains the history of the commerce clause and why it doesn’t permit the mandate:

OBAMACARE ALREADY KILLING HOSPITAL JOBS

Remember when Nancy Pelosi told us that Obamacare was going to create 400,000 new jobs? Well, I guess this Massachusetts hospital didn’t get the memo: About 50 full-time jobs will be eliminated at the HealthAlliance Hospital — Leominster Campus, and one of two planned expansion projects may be cut back. And how did Obamacare accomplish this? [...]

FUNNY VIDEO: DEM REP & STAFF DISCUSS EXCUSES FOR NOT HOLDING TOWN HALLS

Brilliant satire from Heritage: A Dem congressman’s strategy session concerning the best way to explain why he won’t be having Town Hall meetings. The sad thing is that such discussions have obviously been going on in real life all across America. The Dems are afraid of the voters, and with good reason:

OBAMACARE OPPONENT WINS REPUBLICAN NOMINATION FOR FLORIDA GOVERNOR

Rick Scott, who has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare since it began working its nefarious way through Congress last year, beat the Republican establishment candidate for Florida’s governorship: With most precincts counted, Scott looked to be overcoming the might of the Republican establishment … The Associated Press and New York Times called the race for [...]

VIDEO: RUBIO VICTORY SPEECH

Marco Rubio, who once seemed like a long shot candidate for Florida’s open Senate seat, has won the GOP nomination: When GOP hopeful Marco Rubio entered the race for the U.S. Senate, most political observers gave him zero chance of knocking off then-GOP incumbent governor Charlie Crist. But voters overwhelmingly selected Rubio to be the GOP [...]

VIDEO: DEM REP CALLS QUESTIONS ABOUT REFORM & THE CONSTITUTION “SILLY STUFF?

This is the congressman who recently said, “I don’t care about the Constitution.? The videographer asks him what provision of the Constitution allows Congress to force people to buy health insurance, and this “representative? of Illinois citizens calls such questions “silly stuff.? Well, the congressman and his Democrat accomplices are about to discover (on November [...]
