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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

OBAMACARE RULING MAY END CIVILIZATION AS WE KNOW IT

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the absurdly apocalyptic predictions that have appeared in the media about the consequences of a Supreme Court ruling against the government in King v. Burwell. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell three weeks from now, and the possibility that the justices might uphold the [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

SCOTUS, HOBBY LOBBY & MEDIA MALPRACTICE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the lies that the “news” media have been telling the public about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two challenges to Obamacare’s contraception manddate: Those Americans still naïve enough to rely on establishment news outlets for information … are being told that Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood [...]

WHY THE SUPREMES AGREED TO HEAR THE HHS MANDATE CASES

In Monday’s American Spectator, I suggested that the Supreme Court would probably agree to hear one or more of the challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate: [Tuesday] the justices will confer about Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius and Autocam v. Sebelius, all of which challenge the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate … It [...]
