MSM GIVES US THE MUSHROOM TREATMENT ON THE HHS MANDATE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the curious silence of the “news” media on the four December court rulings that went against the HHS mandate, as compared to the thousands of stories they produced about the relatively unimportant Hobby Lobby decision: In December, there were five federal court decisions relating to ObamaCare. Chances are, however, [...]

TWO MORE LEGAL VICTORIES FOR OPPONENTS OF OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

You won’t hear much about it from the “news” media, which will focus on the Supreme Court’s rejection of a long-shot injunction request by Hobby Lobby, but the opponents of ObamaCare’s contraception mandate are stacking up victories in the courts. In addition to winning three injunctions against the government since last summer, the opponents of [...]

SEBELIUS HELPED PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN CHILD RAPE COVER-UP

Earlier in the week, I wrote a column for the American Spectator about the corruption of HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Well, her skulduggery didn’t begin when she joined the Obama regime. It stretches back to her tenure as the Governor of Kansas. And, if you think the above title is overly sensational, watch this video [...]

KATHLEEN THE TERRIBLE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the breathtaking corruption of Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services: Before the advent of Commissar Sebelius, the typical Secretary of Health and Human Services has maintained such a low profile and remained so far from scandal that most voters would be hard put to name any of the [...]

FOUNDER OF DOMINO’S PIZZA SUES GOVT OVER OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

Adding Domino’s Pizza to the growing list of private entities fighting the feds over the HHS contraception mandate, the company’s founder filed suit on Friday: Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a ‘gravely immoral’ practice. He’s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, [...]

DEMS FINALLY SPOT BLINDINGLY OBVIOUS PROBLEM WITH OCARE’S MEDICAL DEVICE TAX

Opponents of ObamaCare have long known that one of its most idiotic provisions calls for a 2.3 percent tax on medical device manufacturers. This provision is not only a sure job killer, it is essentially a tax on innovation, as Paul Hsieh explained nearly two years ago: One of the many new taxes imposed by [...]

MORE STATES ‘JUST SAY NO’ TO OBAMACARE INSURANCE EXCHANGES

As I and others have pointed out before, any state that creates an ObamaCare insurance exchange is getting suckered into footing the bill for a federal program. The latest state to reject this scam is New Jersey, whose governor just vetoed a state-run exchange proposed by his legislature: Gov. Chris Christie vetoed legislation establishing a [...]

ANYONE FOR MORE OBAMACARE TAX RULES?

No? Well, you know what they say in southern Russia. Another question: How many pages of IRS rules does it take to explain a single ObamaCare tax on investments? Answer: Enough to partially hide John Boehner’s ugly mug from the camera. This stack explains the tax on people making more than $200,000 (individuals) and $250,000 [...]

SEBELIUS’ LATEST SCHEME FOR FINANCING FEDERALLY-CREATED INSURANCE EXCHANGES

As I and others have pointed out, one of the most important obstacles to ObamaCare’s success is the refusal of many states to set up the insurance exchanges it calls for. The law makes it clear that only state-created exchanges can distribute the subsidies without which the program will fail. Federally-created exchanges can’t distribute subsidies [...]
