Cruz: As President, I Won’t End Obamacare

This is just one of many differences between Cruz and Obama. What’s Obama’s way of handling things? If Congress won’t do what he wants, he issues executive orders. What’s the point of having a Constitution that delegates powers across three branches of government if the President is keen on acting as a dictator? The President stated that his gun control executive orders are “entirely consistent with the Second Amendment.” But the President can’t make laws. Remember, that’s supposed Read more […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz “Pissed Off” by GOP

The DNC sent out a fundraising email signed by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and in it, she remarked that she’s “pissed off” by the GOP’s “irresponsible behavior.” Typical of these sorts of political emails, their purpose is not to inform anyone of current events, but to rile up their base in hopes that the recipients will be so outraged that they’ll give money to the organization sending the email. Democrats aren’t the only ones who do this. Republicans do it too. In fact, just about Read more […]

How SCOTUScare Has Deformed the System & Begun the Decline of Our Republic

The Supreme Court was designed to be a neutral arbiter of the law. They are the scale that weighs the worth of an argument against the United States Constitution. Their lifetime tenure in the office was to ensure they were not victims of political whims and the winds of a fickle electorate. According to Whitehouse.gov: “The Court’s task is to interpret the meaning of a law, to decide whether a law is relevant to a particular set of facts, or to rule on how a law should be applied.” In essence, Read more […]

Hawaii’s $205 Million Obamacare Exchange Boondoggle Goes Kaput

By February 28, 2016, the workforce of the Obamacare exchange boondoggle will be pushed back to the private sector. It will all be shut down. Even though the feds dumped $205 million into Hawaii’s healthcare exchange program, officials there still managed to run it into the ground. Americans for Tax Reform reported: According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser the Hawaii Health Connector will stop taking new enrollees on Friday and plans to begin migrating to the federally run Healthcare.gov. Read more […]

The Strange Link Between Obamacare and Food Stamps

Ever since Obamacare has been implemented, food stamp usage has increased, seemingly disconnected from the “improving” economy: In most affected states, the enrollment increases were not huge, ranging from 1 percent to 6 percent over two years, according to an Associated Press analysis. The sole exception was Nevada, where enrollment shot up 14 percent. The enrollment is climbing as Republicans try to cut the costs of the food program and at a time when food-stamp usage would normally be Read more […]

Affordable Health Care: CBO Predicts More Spikes in Obamacare Premiums

Obamacare was supposed to be so good, necessary, and affordable that the only way we were going to be able to find out what was in the legislation was to pass it. If the government calls something affordable, you’d better believe that it’s anything but affordable. Like every other government program or mandate, Obamacare’s nothing more than wealth redistribution. In order to entice customers to sign up under an Obamacare exchange, they offer subsidies to help “offset the costs” for the Read more […]

Democrats Seeking Relief from Obamacare Penalties

It’s begun. Some Democrat lawmakers are already seeking relief from Obamacare penalties for their constituents: Three senior House members told The Associated Press that they plan to strongly urge the administration to grant a special sign-up opportunity for uninsured taxpayers who will be facing fines under the law for the first time this year. The three are Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and Read more […]

Dear Democrats: Healthcare Is Not A Right

The argument that healthcare is a right is fallacious and really unacceptable. “A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.” – Thomas Jefferson What are rights? We have the Bill of Rights, we have a constitution that guarantees us certain rights, but by what measure does it guarantee those rights? Well, let’s first examine what rights we were guaranteed in our founding document. The right to assemble Read more […]

IRS Hires CGI Federal, the Same Company that Flubbed Healthcare.gov!

What in the world? I know that civil government is famous for inefficiency, over-spending, corruption, larceny, and just plain stupid, but this beggars belief. After the feds fired CGI Federal for its very expensive and ultimately botched design of Healthcare.gov, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million contract to create its Obamacare tax program. What? Why? Scott Amey, the general counsel for the non-profit Project on Government Oversight, which reviews government contracting, examined Read more […]

As Medicaid Rolls Expand, Payments to Providers Shrink

It’s a natural consequence that as the government forces states to expand their respective Medicaid programs, payments to healthcare providers fall. I used to work at a hospital corporate office in the billing and collecting department. There were a few states that had Medicaid programs that paid enough for it to be worth it to us to accept those patients on a regular basis. I know that sounds completely uncaring and greedy, but in order for businesses to remain in operation, they have to be Read more […]

Record High Number of Americans Foregoing Medical Care Because of High Costs

A recent Gallup poll showed that a record high number of Americans, mostly middle class, are foregoing medical care because of increasing costs brought about by a crony capitalistic medical industry. The Daily Caller reported: One in three Americans has put off seeking medical treatment in 2014 due to high costs, according to Gallup — the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 2001.  Thirty-three percent of Americans have delayed medical treatment for themselves or their Read more […]

Obama in 2006: Jonathan Gruber One of the “Brightest Minds From Academia”

Liberals try to convince themselves and others that Jonathan Gruber is a nobody; that he had absolutely nothing to do with crafting Obamacare; and that the right-wing media are just trying to capitalize off some old YouTube videos where he said some things that were taken out of context. They say his 15 minutes of fame should be up. But he’s not just some nobody. He is one of Obamacare’s (and Romneycare’s) key architects. And until recently, when these old videos surfaced, he was well-respected Read more […]
