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 [...]

OF COURSE HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the only real solution for Obama’s serial violations of the Constitution: Most pundits and politicians discuss Obama’s serial violations of the Constitution as if mulling an interesting academic subject. They ponder such arcana as the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the number of Senate votes required to convict [...]

MSM WHITEWASHES CBO REPORT

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the farcical attempt by the “news” media to put a positive spin on the CBO’s damning assessment of Obamacare’s effect on the economy and employment: The CBO report has created a serious dilemma for a press corps dedicated to protecting the Democrat Party from the electoral consequences of its [...]

OBAMACARE AND GOP COMPLACENCE

In today’s American Spectator I fret about GOP overconfidence concerning the advantage Obamacare’s flop has given them in the upcoming midterm elections: The breathtaking ineptitude with which the Obama administration has implemented the Affordable Care Act provides the Republican Party a very real opportunity to make major gains in the upcoming midterm elections. A mere [...]

CONSERVATISM NEEDS A FIGHTING GENERAL

In my latest American Spectator column, I discuss the cowardice of the GOP on the question of defunding Obamacare. The Obamacare defunding battle highlights the desperate need for GOP leaders with more to contribute than platitudes and compromise. Last week, Karl Rove opined that a GOP attempt to defund Obamacare would be analogous to Pickett’s [...]

VIDEO: ALIETA ECK, M.D. EXPLAINS A SENSIBLE, LOW-COST HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR THE POOR

This woman is wonderful. She gets health care, she provides health care, she has real ideas for genuine genuine reform, and she’s running for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey. My only beef is that I live in another state and thus cannot vote for her.

RACE-BAIT AND SWITCH

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the disgraceful performance of Kathleen Sebelius at the recent NAACP conference. They invited the HHS Secretary, but got Al Sharpton in drag: It isn’t clear that anyone anticipated the depth of sheer demagoguery to which she would descend in that speech. She compared Obamacare’s opponents to the people who [...]

OBAMACARE’S EMPLOYER MANDATE DELAYED UNTIL AFTER 2014 MIDTERM ELECTIONS

This is yet another confirmation that government-run health care is politicized health care. It will render the law’s implementation even more chaotic and expensive that was already the case, but the White House and its congressional accomplices couldn’t care less. Winning the election is all that matters for these creatures:

THE GRAND OLD POSEURS

In today’s American Spectator, I vent my spleen on John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for their empty posturing regarding IPAB: Last week, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ostentatiously announced their intention to fight implementation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). They sent a letter to the President [...]

SEBELIUS THROWS AIDE UNDER THE BUS TO ESCAPE HATCH ACT SKULLDUGGERY

We all know that HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act by campaigning for Obama using taxpayers money, but now it looks like the whoppers she told to save her own skin has an HHS aide in legal trouble: The DNC … reimbursed HHS (rather than the Treasury Department) and reclassified it as travel, [...]
