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 LAYOFFS BEGIN IN EARNEST

One of the most destructive features of ObamaCare is the new tax it levies on medical device manufacturers. It will inevitably kill hundreds of thousands of jobs and, now that the voters have been dumb enough to re-elect Obama, the layoffs are beginning: Welch Allyn, a company that manufactures medical diagnostic equipment in central New [...]

OBAMACARE AND THE EXTINCTION OF FULL TIME JOBS

For anyone who wonders why so many of the “new jobs” added to the economy under Obama have been part-time rather than full time positions, Robert Samuelson provides the answer—-ObamaCare: ACA requires employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide health insurance for those workers. At the same time, no company has to buy [...]

FUNNY VIDEO: KLAVAN ON OBAMANOMICS

OBAMACARE DEVICE TAX KILLS MORE JOBS

A couple of weeks ago, in response to Jonathan Gruber’s ridiculous claim that ObamaCare would boost the economy, I wrote a piece for the American Spectator in which I provided examples of industries in which “reform” is killing jobs by the the thousands: Obamacare levies a 2.3 percent tax on medical device manufacturers beginning in [...]

VIDEO REPRISE: “I DON’T NEED YOUR HEALTH CARE LAW. I NEED A JOB.”

Because unemployment is still so high among young adults, largely because the President spent so much time on ObamaCare while ignoring the economy, it seemed appropriate to revisit this poignant plea from some of the many out-of-work Millennials: Your health care plan hurts the economy. ObamaCare will add to the deficit and cost the economy [...]

ROMNEY ON OBAMA’S UPSIDE DOWN ECONOMY

Mitt Romney came out swinging today, and he hit Obama’s glass jaw.  In this first clip he comments on the President’s recent remarks about business owners and who really created their success: This clip shows the idiotic Obama remarks Romney is talking about: In this next clip, Romney explains how jobs really get created and by whom: This [...]

NO, PROFESSOR GRUBER, OBAMACARE WILL NOT BOOST THE ECONOMY

My latest column for the American Spectator exposes the economic delusions of Obamacare’s chief architect. The piffle this guy peddles about his progeny has to be read to be believed: George Orwell is often credited with writing, ‘Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.’ … A textbook case of this phenomenon can [...]

ROMNEY ON LATEST DISMAL UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT: “IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY”

Unemployment has now remained above 8 percent for 41 months, overall economic growth has pretty much stopped, and it’s obvious that President Obama has no idea what to do about it. In this clip Romney correctly points out that it doesn’t have to be this way and lists some of the things he would do [...]

VIDEO: FINE?

If this man actually believes this, he is not merely incompetent. he’s so delusional as to be mentally unfit for the office he holds: Here’s Mitt Romney’s response: I think he’s being too kind by saying Obama is merely “out of touch.”
