Two More Insurance Companies Drop Out Of Failing Obamacare Exchanges

Two more insurance companies have announced that they will leave Obamacare’s failing exchanges.

First US City Set To See Complete Obamacare Collapse

Knoxville, Tenn., could be the first city in the U.S. where Obamacare completely collapses, leaving tens of thousands of people without the option to buy a subsidized insurance policy.

Freedom Caucus Is an Ally, Not an Enemy in Draining the Swamp

President Donald Trump’s tweet that it’s the House Freedom Caucus that “we must fight” shows there may be a little confusion about what “draining the swamp” means or, at the very least, what it looks like. The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. We […]

Trump Doubles Down On House Freedom Caucus For Opposing Obamacare Repeal

Paul Ryan’s Catastrophic Lack of Political Skill and Judgment

Everyone knows that a competent lawyer never asks a question in court to which he doesn’t already know the answer. And likewise, a competent political leader never puts a piece of legislation up for a vote without having a good idea of what the vote will be. But when Paul Ryan released his American Health […]

Gingrich: Freedom Caucus Saved House Republicans From Destructive Vote.

Monday on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said the House Freedom Caucus saved House Republicans from a politically destructive vote when they refused to support the House Republican health care bill which only had a 17 percent approval rating among voters. Gingrich said, “Not voting on Friday was […]

Speaker Paul Ryan: You’re Fired.

The AHCA was DOA on the First Day. Why? It wasn’t repeal—and then the bill was pushed on a premise of “replace.” Obamacare does not need to be replaced, either. Government intervention is not needed. If I go to the doctor, I do not want Big Mamma Government telling me to turn my head and […]

Time to replace Paul Ryan as House speaker.

Paul Ryan failed miserably in his first important task for the Trump agenda. Since 2009, the Republicans have campaigned in the elections of 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 that they would repeal and replace Obamacare.  One would think that given this history, the Republican leaders, such as Ryan, would have a well thought out plan […]

Recriminations have begun flying among Republicans even before the House votes Friday on a plan that aims to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

But that outcome was in deep doubt on Friday morning, as lawmakers on both flanks […]

Trump delivers ultimatum to GOP on ObamaCare repeal.

Rand Paul predicts House GOP will pull ObamaCare repeal bill, start over.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that absent a last-minute deal, he believes House GOP leadership will scrap its current bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare and start over. “I think there’s easily 35 no votes right now, so unless something happens in the next 24 hours, I would predict they pull the bill and […]

Trump: Look, Obamacare is ‘Dead’ and I’m ‘100 Percent’ Behind Our Replacement Plan

Up first, a key nugget of news: Now that the Trump/Ryan healthcare bill narrowly cleared another hurdle in the budget committee this week (more on that in a moment), it has been sent over to the rules committee — the final stage before a full floor vote.

Bernie Sanders’ curious claim that ‘thousands will die’ if GOP Obamacare repeal is passed

Senator Bernie Sanders made the extremely serious claim that “thousands will die” if the GOP Obamacare replacement bill is passed.

Obamacare 2.0 Guts Enforcement, Gives Illegal Aliens Health Care Through Identity Fraud

The Obamacare 2.0 bill pushed by some Republicans strips out even Obamacare’s weak protections preventing illegal aliens from signing up for health care meant for citizens.

The Affordable Care Act must go!

The Republicans in the House already repealed Obamacare numerous times.  Why are they sweating it out this time?  Answer: Because they knew before that their “repeal” would not pass the Senate, or, if it did, it would be vetoed by President Barack Obama.  This time, they will have to bear the consequences of whatever law […]
