FAILURE IS WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the absurdity of the President’s claim that Obamacare is permanently woven into the nation’s social and medical fabric: Obamacare’s apologists, tired of being laughed at for claiming “it’s working,” have adopted a new talking point that they hope will produce less mirth. They now claim the law is such [...]

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 [...]

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH MILTON WOLF?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the potentially disastrous effect of a defeated Tea Partier’s refusal to endorse the winner of the Kansas Senate primary and thus focus Sunflower State conservatives on their main task—defeating Democrat-in-disguise Greg Orman: It has occasionally been claimed that the Civil War began not at Fort Sumter in South Carolina [...]

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WINNERS AND WHINERS

In today’s American Spectator, I point out that it would be suicidal for conservatives to sit out the November midterms simply because their favorite candidates lost to “establishment Republicans” in the primaries: Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional [...]

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.
