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 [...]

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 [...]

HAPPY EMPLOYER MANDATE DAY!

Our alleged President illegally postponed Obamacare’s employer mandate until after the recent midterms in the vain hope that it would preserve the Democrat Senate majority. But it went into effect today: Starting Jan. 1, employers with 100 or more full-time workers face hefty increases in their health insurance costs as they comply for the first [...]

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: [...]

OBAMACARE’S COMING YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY

In my latest column in the American Spectator, I point out that King v. Burwell is by no means the only legal threat that Obamacare will face in 2015. Ironically, considering the number of apocalyptic headlines it has produced, King v. Burwell probably presents less danger to the “reform” law than either of two additional [...]

OBAMACARE AND EUGENICS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss Jonathan Gruber’s use of the term “positive selection” in one of his papers about abortion. This term, as he uses it, is right out of Eugenics 101: The scariest words uttered during Jonathan Gruber’s recent appearance before the House Oversight Committee were “positive selection.” They were read aloud by [...]

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 [...]

VIDEO: JONATHAN GRUBER STRIKES AGAIN

If you had any doubt that the Democrats and Obama administration deliberately deceived the public on Obamacare, this should clear them up. This jerk was arguably the most important architect of the law, and this video shows him openly advocating dishonesty: Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity [...]

KLEIN DOESN’T GET KING V. BURWELL

In the following video, Ezra Klein attempts to explain the significance of the Supreme Court’s decision to “grant cert” in King v. Burwell. As usual, he fails to grasp the basic question at issue: Klein believes that the Court should rule against the plaintiffs because we’re only talking about “9 little words.” Even on this [...]
