THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING EZRA

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the long-overdue departure of Ezra Klein from the Washington Post: We don’t know if Jeff Bezos laughed aloud when Ezra Klein, one of his star bloggers at The Washington Post, pitched an idea for a new website and asked for an eight-figure check to get it off the ground. [...]

OBAMACARE: WHO’S CRYING NOW?

In my latest column for the American Spectator, I discuss the growing number of Obamacare advocates who have learned the hard way that the not-so-Affordable Care Act is and always was a giant fraud. I must confess that I have derived no small amount of schadenfreude from news stories about Obamacare advocates who have been [...]

HEALTHCARE DOT COMMIE

In my latest column for the American Spectator I discuss the utterly predictable wreck of Obamacare’s flagship: The most surprising thing about the botched launch of Obamacare’s “online insurance marketplace” is that the failure surprised anyone. From the moment, during the 2008 presidential campaign, that Barack Obama began promising to reform our medical delivery system, [...]

OBAMACARE AND THE EDSEL: A TALE OF TWO LEMONS

In my latest column for the American Spectator I compare Obamacare to another great American flop–the Edsel: Last month, as the President, HHS Commissar Kathleen Sebelius and their media toadies hyped the imminent launch of Obamacare’s dysfunctional insurance exchanges, few bothered to observe the 56th anniversary of “E-Day.” Don’t remember E-Day? This, believe it or [...]

LATEST OCARE FOUL-UP FAVORS SMOKERS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss how the latest Obamacare implementation snafu will force non-smokers to subsidize smokers. Last week the Associated Press reported: In yet another health care overhaul delay, the administration has quietly notified insurers that a computer system problem will limit penalties that the law says the companies may charge smokers. A [...]

THE GRAND OLD POSEURS

In today’s American Spectator, I vent my spleen on John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for their empty posturing regarding IPAB: Last week, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ostentatiously announced their intention to fight implementation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). They sent a letter to the President [...]

GOP AT FAULT FOR OCARE TRAIN WRECK?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the attempt by members of the media to blame Obamacare’s implementation ills on the GOP. The Dems won all the legislative battles and most of the court battles over this thing. Yet, somehow, it is the GOP’s fault that the wheels are coming off: Conspicuous among the blame-the-GOP crowd [...]

HERE’S YOUR 21-PAGE OBAMACARE APP

Before the era of Obamacare, it was well-known among the informed that a significant percentage of the fabled uninsured were eligible for Medicaid and other types of assistance, but were just too lazy to apply. What do you think these people are going to do when confronted with this bureaucrat-spawned morass?

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 [...]

VIDEO: MILTON WOLF ON CRAZY JOE

At the risk of piling on, I couldn’t resist posting this video from Milton Wolf (the President’s cousin) about our boneheaded VP. Terrifying exit question: Does it not scare the hell out of you that Biden is one heartbeat away from the Presidency?
