OBAMACARE IS HERE TO PREY

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the continuing depredations of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act” as well as our President’s pathetic delusions about its permanence and efficacy: Saturday morning, fresh from his latest victory over the rule of law, President Obama delivered his weekly address to the bored technicians and sycophantic aides who make [...]

VIDEO EXPLAINING KING V. BURWELL

For anyone interested in some actual facts about King v. Burwell (as opposed to the BS that you’ve been getting from the “news” media): Via Cato

CAN KING V. BURWELL REVIVE THE ECONOMY?

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss an under-reported potential benefit of a SCOTUS ruling against the Obama administration in King v. Burwell: The Democrats and their media allies have predicted wrack and ruin if the Supreme Court rules against the government in King v. Burwell, a decision that would stop the IRS from issuing Obamacare [...]

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.
