OBAMACARE’S PROGNOSIS WORSENS

In today’s American Spectator I discuss why Obamacare is likely to go the way of the McCain-Feingold “reform” law. A while back, I suggested in this space that Obamacare might go the way of McCain Feingold. That campaign finance “reform” law was not, you will recall, killed by a single lawsuit or act of Congress. [...]

VIDEO: OCARE ARCHITECT MAKES FOOLS OF FOURTH CIRCUIT JUDGES

Last Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that PPACA means what it says concerning IRS subsidies from state and federal exchanges. The law says “premium assistance” can only flow through exchanges “established by the state.” The 4th Circuit said the text of the law means something other than what it actually says. This [...]

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 [...]

THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF HOBBY LOBBY

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the increasingly hysterical claims made by our progressive friends about the consequences of a Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby on June 26, and the closer we get to that date the [...]

THE EMPLOYER MANDATE IS A GONER

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the imminent demise of Obamacare’s employer mandate: Conservatives have long known that Obamacare’s employer mandate, if implemented, will create harmful distortions in the labor market and damage the economy … When conservative policy experts and business groups first pointed this out, however, Obamacare supporters robotically recited the usual canards [...]

IRAQ VET CONTINUES BATTLE AGAINST OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss this Thursday’s hearing of Sissel v. HHS by the U.S. District Court of Appeals: A year ago I compared decorated veteran Matt Sissel to Horatius, a Roman soldier said to have single-handedly defended a bridgehead against an invasion force intent on imposing a tyrannical regime on the free republic. [...]

‘OBAMACARE IS WORKING!’

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest whopper being peddled by the President and his accomplices in the “news” media: Last Thursday, the president announced the Obamacare debate over for the second time this month … ‘The repeal debate is and should be over. The Affordable Care Act is working.’ If you feel that [...]

NO, THE OBAMACARE DEBATE ISN’T OVER

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss our President’s delusional belief that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” would be pointless: Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges … ‘The debate over repealing this [...]
