SUPREME COURT RECEIVES NEW PETITION FOR OBAMACARE HEARING

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court received a petition for a writ of certiorari in Thomas More Law Center v. Obama. And, unlike Virginia v. Sebelius, this case has been through the entire lower court appeals process. Law prof Brad Joondeph summarizes TMLC’s position on Obamacare which, like virtually every lawsuit that has been filed pursuant to PPACA, [...]

OBAMACARE KILLS 1,200 MORE JOBS

Remember when Nancy Pelosi said ObamaCare would create 400,000 new jobs almost immediately? Well, apparently Boston Scientific didn’t get the memo: Boston Scientific Corp. said yesterday that it plans to eliminate 1,200 to 1,400 jobs worldwide during the next 2 1/2 years to free money for new investments, the Natick medical device maker’s second major [...]

GOVT SAYS OBAMACARE WILL MAKE HEALTH CARE MORE RATHER THAN LESS COSTLY

No one but the most brain-dead Obamazombie will be surprised by this, and it isn’t good news, but to see such estimates coming from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services nonetheless provides a certain amount of schadenfreude for those of us who have been predicting it all along: Total spending is projected to grow [...]

AARP IS AT IT AGAIN

Last year, AARP backed ObamaCare knowing full well that millions of seniors would suffer. Why? To protect its profits. Now, the AARP lobby is inserting itself into the Washington debt ceiling debate: The AARP, formerly the The American Association of Retired Persons, sent U.S. senators a letter last week asking them to oppose any increases in Medicare [...]

OBAMACARE COMMISSARS WILL TAKE OVER INSURANCE OVERSIGHT IN 10 STATES

Another day, another power grab by Obama’s apparatchiks. This time, they have decided that the hilariously titled Affordable Care Act empowers them to take over a function normally carried out by state regulators: The Obama administration will soon take over the review of health insurance rates in 10 states where it says state officials do not adequately regulate [...]

VIDEO: OBAMA FANTASIZES ABOUT BYPASSING CONGRESS & MAKING HIS OWN RULES

The scariest part about this extraordinary video is not Obama’s assertion. He eventually admits that this isn’t how our system works. The unnerving part is the  response of the crowd. They are obvously all for it. With such supporters, how long will Obama be able to control his inner fascist?

NETWORKS IGNORE OBAMA’S LIE ABOUT MOM’S CANCER

If there is anyone left out there who hasn’t figured out how corrupt the “news” networks have become, here’s a clue: On July 13, 2011 … when The New York Times reported on another national Democrat lying about a death in the family in his convention address, presidential debates, just about everywhere. This sleazy lie, [...]

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER OCARE CLUSTER

This time, the problem is ObamaCare’s “firewall,?  a feature that denies subsidies to workers whose employers offer affordable coverage. In other words, if your company offers a plan with premiums that total less than 9.5 percent of your income, you’re SOL on subsidies: The problem is a huge headache for the Obama administration and congressional [...]

STOP OCARE BEFORE IT KILLS (JOBS) AGAIN

Last January, I wrote a column for the American Spectator titled “A Natural Born Job Killer.” Obviously, my point was that the health care “reform” law discouraged employers from creating new jobs. Well, if you didn’t believe me, take a look at this chart from the Heritage Foundation: This is stunning. The change in the [...]

HOW CAN YOU TELL WHEN A DEMOCRAT IS LYING?

When his lips are moving, of course. As Milton Wolf points out in his latest Washington Times column, Obama’s shameless whopper about his own mother’s tragic cancer death is by no means the first time a prominent Democrat has told a brazen lie to the voters. Wolf begins by reminding us of this stretcher from Senator John [...]
