MATH IS HARD FOR OBAMACARIANS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss misrepresentations of a new Urban Institute study by Obamacare apologists in the “news” media: If you read the “reporting” of the legacy media on Obamacare, you will have noticed a spate of stories with titles like the following from CNBC: ‘Health spending post-Obamacare seen $2.5 trillion lower.’ This headline [...]

OBAMACARE: THE REAL PAIN STARTS THIS YEAR

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the employer mandate and other aspects of Obamacare whose ill effects will be personally felt by most Americans beginning in 2015: Obamacare was designed such that its most harmful provisions would not be implemented until after the President had been returned to office for a second term and his [...]

VIDEO: NOW YOU’RE COVERED … IN BS

A little reality check for all the chumps who actually thought government-run health care would be less hassle and less expensive than the medical delivery system that has kept their dumb asses alive for the last three generations: [via Heritage Foundation]

HHS PUBLISHES PHONY EXCHANGE FIGURES

Yesterday, I noticed a number of my “progressive” Facebook friends crowing about the figures released by the Obama administration regarding the allegedly low cost of the plans that will be offered through Obamacare’s exhanges. These folks, like everyone who supports Obamacare, have failed to do their homework. Yesterday’s report was a cherry-picked sample of a [...]

VIDEO: ALIETA ECK, M.D. EXPLAINS A SENSIBLE, LOW-COST HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR THE POOR

This woman is wonderful. She gets health care, she provides health care, she has real ideas for genuine genuine reform, and she’s running for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey. My only beef is that I live in another state and thus cannot vote for her.

OBAMA SHAFTS POOR AND MINORITY SENIORS AGAIN

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the new cuts to Medicare Advantage proposed by the Obama administration. No, I’m not talking about the $200 billion Obamacare cuts that have been so controversial. These are brand new cuts that CMS unveiled a couple of weeks ago: If President Obama’s rhetoric on domestic policy can be said [...]

DEATH TO DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME

In this morning’s American Spectator, I advocate deep-sixing one of the dumbest ideas ever. This morning you were required to get out of bed an hour earlier than you rose last Monday. If you are like most people, you did so in the same spirit of resignation with which you endure winter rain, believing that [...]

DONNA BRAZILE CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY HER INSURANCE PREMIUMS WENT UP … LOL

These tweets from Democrat consultant and Obamacare supporter will be an excellent source of Schadenfreude:   Everyone in the galaxy understands that Obamacare is already driving health insurance premiums through the roof. Apparently, however, Ms. Brazile didn’t get the memo. Many more Obamacare supporters will also be waking up and smelling the coffee. The knuckleheads [...]

MSM COVERS UP CBO’S UPWARD REVISION OF OBAMACARE COST

The “news” media are still covering for our dear leader: NBC, ABC, and CBS have ignored a story that would damage the liberal narrative they are helping the White House to push. Two days ago, the Congressional Budget Office reported that it has revised its projections of the cost of ObamaCare’s insurance subsidies. Er … [...]

Obama’s Most Audacious SOTU Lie

That State of the Union speech was so dishonest that picking out the biggest whopper was no easy task. But your intrepid blogger took it on anyway in the American Spectator. It is difficult to say with certainly which of the many whoppers President Obama told tonight took the most crust to utter, but my [...]
