Congressional Republicans are Finally Sending Obama a Bill to Repeal Obamacare!

After five long, grueling years, Congressional Republicans are finally sending President Obama a bill to repeal Obamacare! It’s been a long slog for conservatives who have been demanding this legislation for years, but the day has finally come, and now it will be Barack Obama who again stands against the will of the people. I am most curious about how the liberal media will attempt to distort what is happening in their never-ceasing attempts to smear conservatives while venerating Barack Obama. From Read more […]

The Cost of Conservative Incrementalism: The Foredoomed Bill that Repeals ObamaCare and Defunds Planned Parenthood

The House just passed a bill that would repeal ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood. Don’t rejoice just yet because it means almost nothing. Yes, there is basically no way it will actually accomplish anything at all: Congress sent an ObamaCare repeal bill to the president’s desk for the first time on Wednesday, marking an election-year victory of sorts for Republicans who have tried since 2010 to scrap the law. The bill repealing most of President Obama’s signature health care law was Read more […]

VA Nurse Charged with Manslaughter is Still Working with Patients!

A 240-pound Department of Veterans Affairs nurse’s aide charged with manslaughter in the death of a 70-year-old patient was returned to work at the hospital this month three days before hitting the two-year mark of being on paid leave, against the department’s own policy. The unexplained move seems similar to the department’s past efforts to game statistics rather than fix underlying problems. Powerful congressmen like Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, have begun routinely requesting Read more […]

FDA Relaxes Rules for Homosexual Blood Donors … They Say It’s Still Not Enough

The FDA recently relaxed its rules for homosexuals who want to donate blood. Apparently, homosexuals are now allowed to give blood if they have refrained from homosexual contact for a year. But homosexuals and activists say this new rule is still too restrictive and discriminatory: “The revised policy is still discriminatory,” said a statement from the National Gay Blood Drive, which advocated along with the American Civil Liberties Union, Gay Men’s Health Crisis, and others for a policy Read more […]

Another State is Cutting Ties with Planned Parenthood!

Oklahoma Republican Gov. Mary Fallin ordered the Oklahoma Health Care Authority to terminate contracts with two Planned Parenthood affiliates Thursday, citing billing problems. Fallin said she made the decision because of problems with the two affiliates overcharging Oklahoma residents for services by 20 percent and 14 percent. She pointed out that there are about 120 other health care options for Oklahoma residents. “Terminating the contracts with the two Planned Parenthood affiliates, Read more […]

The Supreme Court will Weigh In on Obamacare… Again

The U.S. Supreme Court said Friday it will rule on Obamacare’s contraception mandate after multiple religious groups have taken issue with its mandate that they provide insurance coverage including contraception to employees. This is the fourth time a part of Obamacare will be evaluated by the court. Hobby Lobby won a Supreme Court case last year that allowed businesses to opt out of providing certain contraceptives for religious reasons. The Obama administration hoped to appease religious Read more […]

Colombian Man with HIV Killed by His Tapeworm’s Cancer

That headline slays me. Can you imagine how one person’s life could get any worse than that? First, you contract HIV. Bummer. Then you get a tapeworm. Super bummer. Then your tapeworm gets cancer. Yay! Wait. Not so fast. The tapeworm somehow transfers its cancer to you. Then you die. Wow. With all of that going on in this guy’s life, living in a third-world country was the least of his concerns. Perhaps you’re wondering how a person could “get” cancer from another organism. It’s not Read more […]

New York’s Failed Obamacare Co-Op Deliberately Misled Government…?

New York insurance regulators said Friday the financial condition of Health Republic of New York, the largest of 23 health insurance co-ops established by a $2.4 billion Obamacare program, is “substantially worse than the company previously reported in its filings.” It is unclear if the co-op deliberately misled state regulators in their original filings, or if regulators found evidence of financial wrongdoing while they tried to close down the defunct non-profit. The co-op’s insolvency Read more […]

American Academy of Pediatrics: Global Warming is a “Rising Public Health Threat to All Children”

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is linking children’s health and wellbeing with the “rising threat” of manmade global warming. Not surprisingly, their link is built on the basic premise that “97%” of a select few government-funded scientists can’t be wrong. If it weren’t for that very exclusive consensus, none of what they said would have made any sense. According to their press release: Today, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a policy statement that links Read more […]

Government Plans to Force Doctors to Take LGBTQ Sensitivity Training

With the number of gay and transgender people on the upswing in the District of Columbia, city council members want to force doctors to take cultural competency classes to better accommodate them. The council heard testimony Wednesday from local activists urging them to pass legislation that would make “LGBTQ cultural competency training” a part of their continuing education requirements. The new regulations would require any medical professional to take two courses on LGBTQ cultural competency Read more […]

Has Breast Cancer Awareness Reduced Breast Cancer Fatalities?

Short answer: not really. Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure the pink ribbons, pink uniforms, bumper stickers, and no-bra days have “raised awareness” about breast cancer. The question is, has it actually done anything to reduce breast cancer deaths? At least according to Laurie Becklund, a journalist who died of breast cancer last year, Breast Cancer Awareness has done little but raise money for breast cancer awareness organizations, the largest of which is the Susan G. Komen Foundation. In her Read more […]

Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood and Gut Obamacare Moves Forward!

The House Budget Committee advanced a GOP reconciliation bill Friday that would unravel major components of the Affordable Care Act and temporarily stop Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds. “Together, this package will dismantle many of the key elements of Obamacare that are harming individuals and families, hurting job creation and spending taxpayer dollars on programs with little to no congressional oversight,” said Republican Rep. Tom Price, chairman of the Budget Committee. The Read more […]
