WHAT PART OF ‘NO’ DOES HHS NOT GET?

In the American Spectator I discuss the Obama administration’s continued attempts to bully exempt organizations into obeying the contraception mandate despite its Hobby Lobby defeat last year. The Supreme Court has again thwarted the Obama administration’s illegal crusade to coerce employers into violating their religious convictions. Late last Wednesday, Associate Justice Samuel Alito stayed an [...]

NO, MR. PRESIDENT, OBAMACARE ISN’T WORKING

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest futile attempt by the White House to convince us that this smoking train wreck is working: Last week, the White House took to Twitter for purposes of publicizing its latest Obamacare enrollment blarney. Far more informative than the tweet’s fictitious sign-up numbers was the schmaltzy video to [...]

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 [...]

KING BARACK REWRITES OBAMACARE… AGAIN

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss His Majesty’s latest illegal decree: Obamacare’s supporters have long insisted that it is the “law of the land,” implicitly suggesting that it is immutable and permanent. Evidently, it hasn’t occurred to these people to mention that to their dear leader. His Majesty, Barack I, obviously thinks of the Patient [...]

WHY SCOTUS RULED IN FAVOR OF HOBBY LOBBY

In today’s American Spectator I try to cut through the hysteria about Hobby Lobby’s victory in the Supreme Court, and explain why the justices ruled they way they did. This is actually a big win for everyone: This morning’s Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby will doubtless precipitate a flood of stories from [...]

SCOTUS, HOBBY LOBBY & MEDIA MALPRACTICE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the lies that the “news” media have been telling the public about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two challenges to Obamacare’s contraception manddate: Those Americans still naïve enough to rely on establishment news outlets for information … are being told that Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood [...]

WHY THE SUPREMES AGREED TO HEAR THE HHS MANDATE CASES

In Monday’s American Spectator, I suggested that the Supreme Court would probably agree to hear one or more of the challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate: [Tuesday] the justices will confer about Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius and Autocam v. Sebelius, all of which challenge the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate … It [...]

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 [...]

THE WHEELS COME OFF OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the gradual disintegration of Obamacare and the growing frustration of its advocates with Obama and the bureaucrats who are supposed to be implementing the monstrosity: I recently came across a post in Time’s Swampland blog titled, “Obamacare Incompetence” … It seems that Joe Klein, a usually reliable Democrat hack, [...]

REVISION TO HHS MANDATE A BAD JOKE

As I pointed out last Friday in the American Spectator, the HHS contraception mandate is little more than a political payoff to Big Pharma. And judging from the “revision” to the mandate issued by HHS on the same day, the fix is still in. As Yuval Levin at NRO phrases it: It doesn’t actually exempt [...]
