TAVENNER TAKES A POWDER

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the resignation of CMS administrator Marilyn Tavenner and her legacy of incompetence and corruption: Marilyn Tavenner, the Obama administration official who presided over Obamacare’s worst debacles and most devious deceptions, has finally made an intelligent decision—she resigned. Tavenner ran the government bureaucracy responsible for the inept rollout of HealthCare.gov, [...]

OBAMACARE HITS HARVARD, FACULTY FUMES

The reaction of the Harvard faculty to the depredations of Obamacare is one of the most satisfying stories I have read since November. Robert Pear, one of the few honest writers at the NYT, reveals how these hypocrites respond to being treated like the hoi polloi: For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy [...]

GRUBER TOLD OBAMA IN 2009 THAT PPACA WAS UNAFFORDABLE

Jonathan Gruber really is the gift that keeps on giving. The Daily Caller has found yet another example of the professor committing candor: President Obama’s health care adviser Jonathan Gruber said that the Affordable Care Act would definitely not be affordable while he was writing the bill with the White House. According to The DC: [...]

TRAIN WRECKS, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE

In today’s American Spectator I discuss Jonathan Gruber’s remarks about the “stupidity of the American voter” and what they tell us concerning the deceptions that were used to foist Obamacare on an unwilling electorate: The “father of Obamacare,” as he was known in his salad days, inadvertently acquitted nearly half of us with his reference [...]

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH MILTON WOLF?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the potentially disastrous effect of a defeated Tea Partier’s refusal to endorse the winner of the Kansas Senate primary and thus focus Sunflower State conservatives on their main task—defeating Democrat-in-disguise Greg Orman: It has occasionally been claimed that the Civil War began not at Fort Sumter in South Carolina [...]

TAVENNER ORDERED CMS SPOKESPERSON TO DELETE INCRIMINATING EMAILS

Last Monday I wrote a column in the American Spectator about Marilyn Tavenner’s convenient inability to produce some emails that had been subpoenaed by congressional investigators. The story was that she had inadvertently deleted them. Well, it would appear that the lady was lying like a carpet: House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today sent [...]

CAN SHAMELESS, BASELESS PROPAGANDA SAVE THE DEMOCRATS

In my latest column for the American Spectator, I discuss the pathetic attempt by the Democrats to save their Senate majority with preposterous distortions of the recent SCOTUS ruling on the HHS contraception mandate. For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
