OBAMACARE IS HERE TO PREY

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the continuing depredations of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act” as well as our President’s pathetic delusions about its permanence and efficacy: Saturday morning, fresh from his latest victory over the rule of law, President Obama delivered his weekly address to the bored technicians and sycophantic aides who make [...]

VIDEO EXPLAINING KING V. BURWELL

For anyone interested in some actual facts about King v. Burwell (as opposed to the BS that you’ve been getting from the “news” media): Via Cato

FAILURE IS WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the absurdity of the President’s claim that Obamacare is permanently woven into the nation’s social and medical fabric: Obamacare’s apologists, tired of being laughed at for claiming “it’s working,” have adopted a new talking point that they hope will produce less mirth. They now claim the law is such [...]

CAN KING V. BURWELL REVIVE THE ECONOMY?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss an under-reported potential benefit of a SCOTUS ruling against the Obama administration in King v. Burwell: The Democrats and their media allies have predicted wrack and ruin if the Supreme Court rules against the government in King v. Burwell, a decision that would stop the IRS from issuing Obamacare [...]

OBAMACARE OVERHEAD STUDY A TROJAN HORSE

In today’s American Spectator, I point out that the much-publicized Obamacare overhead story was done by a couple of single-payer zealots famous for their phony studies: During the past few days the legacy media and the internet have been flooded with news articles, editorials and blog posts with titles like “Overhead costs exploding under ObamaCare.” [...]

READY FOR ANOTHER OBAMACARE PRICE HIKE?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss how the price of “free health care” is about to go up … again: In July of 2009, as the Obamacare debate was heating up, Gallup published a survey indicating that 83% of Americans wanted health care reform to make their health insurance more affordable. Now, more than five [...]

CAN DR. PRICE CURE GOP COWARDICE?

In today’s American Spectator, I wonder if Rep. Tom Price can coax congressional Republicans out from under the bed with his eminently sensible plan to replace Obamacare: The Supreme Court is probably about to hand congressional Republicans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to eradicate the Obamacare contagion from the body politic, but the GOP has been typically [...]

RAND PAUL’S OBAMACARE HYPOCRISY

In today’s American Spectator I discuss Rand Paul’s complicity in covering up the brazen fraud that permits the congressional exemption from Obamacare to continue: In every speech he has made since announcing his presidential bid, Rand Paul has vowed to repeal Obamacare. At a Las Vegas rally he put it thus: ‘I will make it [...]

REPUBLICANS AND RACE: A REALITY CHECK

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the ACTUAL record of the GOP on race as opposed to the propaganda put out by the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself): Let’s begin at the beginning: The first Democrat president was Andrew Jackson, who was not merely pro-slavery. He personally owned 150 African-American slaves who [...]

LET OBAMACARE’S SUBSIDY VICTIMS SUFFER

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the GOP’s dumb plan to let the Obama administration off the hook if SCOTUS rules that PPACA subsidies cannot be funneled through federal exchanges: The GOP seems determined to reinforce its reputation as “the stupid party.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other prominent Republicans plan to co-sponsor a [...]
