VIDEO: COULTER ON CAIN ACCUSATIONS

Speaking about Politico’s disgraceful hit piece on Herman Cain, Ann Coulter explains that it was based on the worst fear of all Democrats—the fear that a genuine African-American will get on the 2012 GOP presidential ticket: The reality is that Democrats must get at least 90% of the African-American vote to win any presidential election. [...]

THE LEFT HAS BECOME COMFORTABLY DUMB

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses progressive cluelessness about how often they can pick the taxpayer’s pocket in order to fund frivolous luxuries: Today I received an email from a cycling group to which I belong. It was marked ‘urgent’ and its subject line read: ‘Federal Bike Funding Under Attack Again.’ It implored me [...]

VIDEO: PELOSI CLAIMS OBAMACARE WAIVERS WENT ONLY TO SMALL COMPANIES

This woman is the best player on our team. Every time she opens her mouth she says something stupid. This time, in an NBC interview, she made the following preposterous claim about the waivers: They’re small. I couldn’t speak to all 1,800 of them, but some of the lists that I have seen have been very, [...]

POLL: DEM SUPPORT FOR OCARE SHRINKS 20%

The latest Kaiser health tracking poll shows that fewer Americans favor ObamaCare than ever. Even more startling, the latest decline was driven by Democrats:  The October health tracking poll finds a more negative overall public mood about the health reform law, driven largely by changes in support for the law among Democrats. Democrats? Yep, a 20% dive in [...]

SUPREME COURT TO CONSIDER OBAMACARE CASES ON NOVEMBER 10TH

When the U.S. Supreme Court is in session, certain days are set aside for esoteric onferences during which the justices discuss cases they might decide to hear. On Novemeber 10, the justices will consider 5 seperate petitions for certiorari relating to ObamaCare. As Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSBlog points out: Although a grant of review is [...]

OBAMACARE RATIONING HITS THE POOR

The most Orwellian feature of ObamaCare is its name, the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” Countless studies and news stories have documented that PPACA is actually causing health care costs to RISE. And, as David Hogberg points out in IBD, all it “protects” patients from is access to care: Recently, Washington state changed its Medicaid program [...]

ROMNEYCARE FUNDS CARE FOR ILLEGALS?

If there is anyone out there who still thinks Romney can win the GOP nomination or the general election, I recommend that they read this: Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get publicly subsidized care at virtually no cost to them, regardless of their immigration status. [...]

WOLF ON THE DEATH THROES OF LIBERALISM

Although it will seem counterintuituve, the obviously-astroturfed OWS demonstrations are actually a sign that liberalism (or progressivism as it has now been rebranded) is moribund. In his latest column for the Washington Times, Milton Wolf puts it as follows: Liberalism is dying before our eyes, not with a whimper or a bang, but with a grand [...]

DEBATE VIDEO: SANTORUM SLAMS ROMNEY ON HEALTH CARE

This is why Romney can’t possibly win against Obama. The health reform issue really matters to the voters and he will be hit over and over and over again on Romneycare. What Santorum does in this clip is nothing compared to what Obama and the “news? media will do to Romney if the GOP is [...]

SECRET USE OF DO NOT RESUSCITATE ORDERS IN BRITAIN’S NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

In Monday’s American Spectator,  I wrote about the new regulation requiring insurance companies to report your health information so HHS can develop a list of “50 to 100 medical conditions to identify high cost individuals.” If you want to know where this sort of thing is headed, I recommend this article in The Telegraph: Elderly patients are [...]
