READY FOR ANOTHER OBAMACARE PRICE HIKE?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss how the price of “free health care” is about to go up … again: In July of 2009, as the Obamacare debate was heating up, Gallup published a survey indicating that 83% of Americans wanted health care reform to make their health insurance more affordable. Now, more than five [...]

CAN DR. PRICE CURE GOP COWARDICE?

In today’s American Spectator, I wonder if Rep. Tom Price can coax congressional Republicans out from under the bed with his eminently sensible plan to replace Obamacare: The Supreme Court is probably about to hand congressional Republicans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to eradicate the Obamacare contagion from the body politic, but the GOP has been typically [...]

RAND PAUL’S OBAMACARE HYPOCRISY

In today’s American Spectator I discuss Rand Paul’s complicity in covering up the brazen fraud that permits the congressional exemption from Obamacare to continue: In every speech he has made since announcing his presidential bid, Rand Paul has vowed to repeal Obamacare. At a Las Vegas rally he put it thus: ‘I will make it [...]

LET OBAMACARE’S SUBSIDY VICTIMS SUFFER

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the GOP’s dumb plan to let the Obama administration off the hook if SCOTUS rules that PPACA subsidies cannot be funneled through federal exchanges: The GOP seems determined to reinforce its reputation as “the stupid party.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other prominent Republicans plan to co-sponsor a [...]

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 [...]

MATH IS HARD FOR OBAMACARIANS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss misrepresentations of a new Urban Institute study by Obamacare apologists in the “news” media: If you read the “reporting” of the legacy media on Obamacare, you will have noticed a spate of stories with titles like the following from CNBC: ‘Health spending post-Obamacare seen $2.5 trillion lower.’ This headline [...]

WHO WILL BE BLAMED FOR KING V. BURWELL CHAOS?

In today’s American Spectator I suggest that the fallout from a SCOTUS ruling against the IRS in King v. Burwell won’t come down on the heads of the local officials who refused to set up state exchanges: A Supreme Court ruling against the Obama administration in King v. Burwell, according to conventional Beltway wisdom, will [...]

OBAMACARE’S AMAZING WAYBACK CLAUSE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the ridiculous claim by the President and his supporters that Obamacare slowed down health care inflation even before it was implemented: Obamacare’s boosters have made many implausible assertions about its supposed successes … But any list of their most comical claims would have to include those involving the law’s [...]

THE SUM OF ALL OBAMACARIAN FEARS

In today’s American Spectator I discuss what really scares Obamacare advocates about King v. Burwell. They are terrified that SCOTUS will send PPACA back to Congress for repairs, and that the new majority might actually heed the will of the voters: Justice Scalia said as much, during oral arguments, after listening to Solicitor General Donald [...]

KENNEDY WON’T SAVE OBAMACARE’S BACON

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the pathetic hope by PPACA supporters that a single question asked by Justice Kennedy during Wednesday’s King v. Burwell hearing means he’ll support the Obama administration’s illegal attempt to rewrite the law: Supporters of the “Affordable Care Act” have been rather glum of late. Since the Supreme Court agreed [...]
