A SERIOUS GOP ALTERNATIVE TO OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the health care reform plan that Dr. Tom Coburn, Senator from Oklahoma, and two other GOP Senators have proposed as a replacement for the disastrous Obamacare: The most frequently repeated Democrat talking point concerning Republican opposition to Obamacare is the claim that the GOP has offered no alternative. This [...]

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.

FREE MARKET ADVOCATES HOLD THE MORAL HIGH GROUND IN THE HEALTH CARE DEBATE

One of the most irritating ironies of the ongoing health reform debate is that the advocates of government-run health care claim to be in possession of the high moral ground. In this clip, Beth Haynes, M.D., of the Benjamin Rush Society, explains why that is false and shows that individual liberty and free markets provide [...]

A GENUINE HEALTH REFORM PLAN TO REPLACE OCARE AFTER OBAMA IS FIRED IN NOVEMBER

James C. Capretta of the American Enterprise Institute outlines the genuine health that should be put in place once the voters have kicked out Obama and repealed the monstrosity known as ObamaCare: 1) Defined contributions 2) Continuous & uninterrupted coverage 3) Tax reforms for individuals & employers 4) Premium support for Medicare 5) Private insurance [...]

VIDEO: OBAMACARE HOSES YOUNG ADULTS

On Thursday, the Supreme Court will hand down its ruling on the constitutionality of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act.” If you’re a young adult, you’d better hope they strike it down. ObamaCare actually raises the cost of your health care if you’re under 30. Watch this video and then go outside and scrape that [...]

OBAMA “ACCOMPLISHMENT” AD LEAVES OUT OBAMACARE?

I’ve been up to my neck in alligators all week, so I missed this. At the beginning of the week, Obama’s reelection team released an ad listing the President’s “accomplishments.” The list, however, has a singularly glaring omission: It notably does not mention his signature legislative achievement — the Affordable Care Act. Yep. That’s right. [...]

WHAT REAL REFORM WOULD LOOK LIKE

Another video from Jill Vecchio. In this one, she his discusses a set of ideas that collectively amount to GENUINE health care reform. Our alleged President insists that no one opposing Obamacare has suggested a better alternative. That’s horse manure, of course, and this is just one example of many that would actually accomplish good things without [...]

NEWT: HEALTH CARE SHOULD BE DELIVERED ‘WITHIN A FRAMEWORK SET BY GOVERNMENT’

More evidence that Newt Gingrich has been on the wrong side of every aspect of the health care debate. In this video, from a discussion with congressional staffers in 2003, he compares the government’s role in health care to that which it played in building the interstate highway system … sigh. [ht Breitbart]

POLL: DEM SUPPORT FOR OCARE SHRINKS 20%

The latest Kaiser health tracking poll shows that fewer Americans favor ObamaCare than ever. Even more startling, the latest decline was driven by Democrats:  The October health tracking poll finds a more negative overall public mood about the health reform law, driven largely by changes in support for the law among Democrats. Democrats? Yep, a 20% dive in [...]

ROMNEY ADVISORS VISITED THE WHITE HOUSE 12 TIMES DURING OBAMACARE DESIGN PHASE

There’s a reason why ObamaCare and RomneyCare bear a close family resemblance. They share the same parents. During 2009, when ObamaCare was conceived, Romney’s people and Obama’s people were spending a lot of time together: White House visitor logs obtained by NBC News revealed that three of Romney’s healthcare advisers had up to a dozen meetings with senior [...]
