RATIONING ALREADY A REALITY FOR SENIORS

One way the Democrats “paid” for ObamaCare was syphoning $500 billion out of the Medicare program. The government will pay doctors and hospitals less for the medical treatment of seniors. What does that have to do with rationing? Well, the inevitable effect of these lower payments is a decrease in the number of health care [...]

THE “OVERSIGHT” THAT MAY KILL OBAMACARE

As I have discussed here, U.S. District Court Judge Henry Hudson promised to rule by the end of the year on the constitutionality of ObamaCare’s individual mandate. And the White House is worried: [Obama administration] officials are bracing for the possibility that a federal judge in Virginia will soon reject its central provision as unconstitutional and, in the [...]

OBAMA’S BIGGEST HEALTH CARE WHOPPER?

Our (less and less) esteemed President has told so many stretchers that it is difficult to decide which qualifies as his most brazen lie. But Byron York thinks that, once the smoke has cleared, it will be the following: No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people. [...]

VIDEO: “EXHAUSTED” SUPPORTER AT WHOM OBAMA LAUGHED LOSES JOB

Remember Velma Hart, at whom Obama laughed when she said she was “exhausted” with supporting him and waiting for him to keep his promises? Well, now she’ll have plenty of time to rest: The Obama supporter who in September told President Obama she was exhausted from defending him, frazzled from safeguarding the Hope, fatigued from fighting [...]

MORE BS FROM THE MSM ON OBAMACARE

Well, they’re consistent. You have to give them that. No matter how much evidence we get of ObamaCare’s unpopularity,  the “news” media continue to tell us that the public likes “reform”: A majority of Americans want the Congress to keep the new health care law or actually expand it, despite Republican claims that they have a mandate from the [...]

WHY ISN’T THE SAUDI KING GOING TO FRANCE TO GET TREATMENT FOR HIS BLOOD CLOT?

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is, of course, among the richest people on the planet. He can (and does) get the best of everything. So, why is he coming to the much-maligned U.S. health care system for his blod clot issue? Saudi Arabia’s aged ruler will fly to the United States for medical tests over [...]

RATIONING CZAR RUNS FROM REPORTER

Donald Berwick, the recess-appointed CMS commissar whose recent Senate hearing was accurately characterized by Orrin Hatch as “pathetic,” is routinely represented by the “news” media as a “champion of transparency.” But he refuses to answer questions from anyone not reading from a White House-approved script. He won’t answer queries about the shady financial deals he set up at his [...]

BERWICK DEIGNS TO TESTIFY BEFORE SENATE

Today, four months after the President used a recess appointment to install him as CMS administrator, Donald Berwick will finally stoop to testify before the Senate Finance Committee: Don Berwick, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will face vigorous questioning from Republicans when he appears before the Senate Finance Committee … If [...]

VIDEO: HITLER FINDS OUT THE GOP HAS RETAKEN THE HOUSE

This may be the best of the “Hitler finds out? series. And, considering his notorious aversion to news that doesn’t flatter his vanity, I wouldn’t be surprised if our President reacted to the GOP landslide in much the same fashion as Hitler does in this clip. My favorite line: We rammed through health care … [...]

111 OBAMACARE WAIVERS GRANTED BY HHS

If you are among the few people who still believe that that the Obama administration has any intention of equally applying the “reforms” of ObamaCare, this is your final wake up call: Federal officials have granted 111 waivers to employers, insurers and union plans, who are responsible for covering about 1.2 million people. Who got [...]
