TAVENNER: TRANSPARENCY FOR THEE BUT NOT FOR ME

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the ironic fact that the latest Obama administration official to delete emails subpoenaed by Congress oversees Obamacare’s physician transparency program: It has been widely reported that the latest Obama administration official to delete emails requested by congressional investigators is Marilyn Tavenner, who runs the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid [...]

DID BEN NELSON DOOM OBAMACARE?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss an interesting aspect of Halbig v. Burwell, the lawsuit that may kill Obamacare in 36 states. During the oral arguments that preceded the recent appeals court ruling against the Obama administration in Halbig v. Burwell, an under-reported yet crucial discussion took place between two of the judges and counsel [...]

OBAMACARE SLOWLY SUCCUMBS TO ITS BIRTH DEFECTS

At PJ Media, I discuss the dismal long-term prospects for Obamacare as it inevitably heads to the Supreme Court (again) over illegal IRS subsidies: The supporters of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act” are attempting to downplay their latest legal defeats by pretending that they are disappointing but inconsequential stumbles in the law’s long march [...]

PHOTO FOUND SHOWING BUSH ON GRASSY KNOLL

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the preposterous claim, made by Nancy Pelosi and other brain donors, that George Bush is to blame for the VA scandal: OK, I admit that I made up the above headline. But, if Nancy Pelosi can blame the VA scandal on George Bush, why can’t I accuse him of [...]

ANOTHER ILLEGAL OBAMACARE EDICT?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss Obama’s latest attempt to save the Democrats from the consequences of his “signature domestic achievement.” President Obama is planning to break the law, once again, in an effort to protect vulnerable Democrats in the Senate. According to news reports, ‘the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers [...]

UNIONS TO GET ANOTHER OBAMACARE BREAK?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the latest concession the unions want (and will probably get) from the President on Obamacare: One of the most predictable features of American politics is the biannual blackmail to which the Democrats are subjected by their union bosses. Knowing that “the Party of Jefferson and Jackson” cannot survive without [...]

RACE-BAIT AND SWITCH

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the disgraceful performance of Kathleen Sebelius at the recent NAACP conference. They invited the HHS Secretary, but got Al Sharpton in drag: It isn’t clear that anyone anticipated the depth of sheer demagoguery to which she would descend in that speech. She compared Obamacare’s opponents to the people who [...]

SCOTT OTT & BILL WHITTLE DISCUSS OBAMA’S DISREGARD FOR HIS OWN “REFORM” LAW

The question this raises, when boiled down to is essence, is this: Are we a nation of laws or a nation of men? Obama obviously takes the latter point of view. He ignores laws he dislikes and arbitrarily changes others he thinks need “adjusting” without regard to the Constitution he twice swore to uphold: [ht [...]

GET SHAFTED AMERICA

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses “Get Covered America,” the much-anticipated propaganda campaign from the Obama regime’s front group “Enroll America.” The alleged purpose of this campaign is to connect the uninsured to Obamacare’s insurance exchanges. But this suggests a question: During the health reform debate, we were repeatedly told by the White House, [...]

IS SEBELIUS FLOUTING THE ANTI-LOBBYING ACT

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest skulduggery from Commissar Sebelius. This time it’s the use of federal tax dollars to lobby for state and local initiatives: The Anti-Lobbying Act forbids federal bureaucrats from using money appropriated by Congress to influence “an official of any government, to favor, adopt, or oppose… any legislation, law, [...]
