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 […]

CBO: Murdering Unborn Babies is Fiscally Conservative

They say that the CBO is nonpartisan. I generally agree. Both parties use CBO reports to their respective advantages. The CBO issues reports and gives testimony upon request by the various Congressional Committees. If they were tasked with finding out how much a certain bill will cost over the next decade, that’s what they’ll find out.

Other Countries Tell the USA to Raise the Minimum Wage

In a practice that other nations, especially in Europe, are becoming pretty good at – the International Monetary Fund (or IMF) got condescending as they decided to tell us that we need to raise the minimum wage.

Like its political counterpart, the United Nations, the IMF seems to cause more problems these days than it solves. Perhaps it’s time to Read more […]

CBO Admits Impossible to Know Costs of Obamacare

Five years ago, we were all told that the Affordable Care Act would provide lower healthcare premiums, better quality of healthcare, it would pay for itself and help reduce the federal budget deficit.

The wheels were set in motion and as Rep. Nancy Pelosi stated, we started to find out exactly what was in the massive bill. Since Read more […]

CBO: Obamacare Creates Disincentive For People To Work

That’s what socialism does in general. What’s the point of working harder, only to have that additional income taxed more, leaving you with less money than you’d have if you had otherwise not worked hard to make more money? In the context of Obamacare, if a family makes between 100% and 133% of the FPL, they would be responsible for paying no more than 2% of their income toward health insurance. The more money they make, the higher their insurance premium cap is. So, if a family made between Read more […]
