Hillary Clinton Speaks Out on Undercover Planned Parenthood Videos

America’s Obamacare Nightmare Is Just Beginning

America's Obamacare Nightmare Is Just Beginning

Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the federal government could continue to subsidize health-insurance coverage through Healthcare.gov, the federal exchanges. An ecstatic President Obama declared that Obamacare is “here to stay.” No, it’s not. A judicial victory doesn’t automatically translate into a political victory, let alone a policy success. Once they’ve quaffed their celebratory […]

Roberts Court Tortures Law to Save Obamacare…Again!

Roberts Court Tortures Law to Save Obamacare…Again!

On Thursday, the Supreme Court released its long-awaited decision on Obamacare’s IRS subsidies under federal health insurance exchanges. And, as expected, the Court rewrote the statute to help President Obama’s signature law. With each passing day of Supreme Court decisions, conservative principles begin to feel more and more like the survivors of the Scream films: […]

Roberts Gets It Wrong Again

Roberts Gets It Wrong Again

The Affordable Care Act was drafted with extraordinary carelessness given its importance, and conservatives who say that the Obama administration has implemented it contrary to its plain meaning have strong arguments. So opined six justices of the Supreme Court, including its most liberal members, in King v. Burwell. That is, unfortunately, the best thing about […]

Confirmed: White House Lied About Jonathan Gruber’s Role in Developing ObamaCare

Confirmed: White House Lied About Jonathan Gruber’s Role in Developing ObamaCare

President Obama’s dismissal of MIT’s Jonathan Gruber as just “some adviser” he barely remembers, rather than a key architect of ObamaCare, has always been one of the flimsiest and most transparent lies told by this profoundly dishonest White House. Everyone knew Gruber was critical to ObamaCare, and when he was caught on tape high-fiving himself […]

3 More Reasons To Get Rid Of ObamaCare, Hidden In The CBO Report

House Repeals Obamacare Medical Device Tax

Forecasts: ObamaCare advocates tout a new Congressional Budget Office report saying that ObamaCare’s repeal would boost the deficit. But read the actual report. It tells a far different, more disturbing tale about this law. The report found that repealing ObamaCare lock, stock and barrel would boost the deficit by $353 billion. That was enough for […]

House Repeals Obamacare Medical Device Tax

House Repeals Obamacare Medical Device Tax

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to repeal the medical device tax in Obamacare, an unpopular mandate opposed by lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle. Democrats joined Republicans 280-140. The House also voted in 2013 to repeal the tax. “Patients all across America are losing the ability to access the highest quality care […]

Hospitals Are the Latest Victims Of ObamaCare’s False Promises

hospital2

Broken Promises: President Obama recently claimed that ObamaCare is working even better than anticipated. That would be a tough sell to all those hospitals that thought the law would help them make ends meet. In the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare ruling in 2012, which upheld the individual mandate, the justices also ruled that ObamaCare couldn’t force […]

A doctor clutches a stethoscope. (Adam Berry / Getty Images News) As America hears of more doctors leaving the profession, the head of a patient-centered national health care organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota, sees both political parties in Washington making matters worse. “Huge things are happening under the surface that people don’t understand,” says […]

The Verdict Is Already In; By Almost Any Measure, Obamacare Is a Failure

The Verdict Is Already In; By Almost Any Measure, Obamacare Is a Failure

We haven’t heard much about Obamacare from the media lately (with the exception of Paul Krugman, who slips a paragraph into every other column — regardless of topic — to tell us how well it’s working). It’s as if both supporters and opponents of the health-care law are holding their collective breaths as they wait […]

Why Obamacare Penalties in 2016 Will Be the Worst Yet

Why Obamacare Penalties in 2016 Will Be the Worst Yet

One of the most hated aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has been the provision that imposes penalties on those who choose not to get qualifying health care coverage. For years after its provisions became law no one saw Obamacare penalties in action, but when Americans filed their […]

ObamaCare Is Getting Less Affordable By The Minute

Illegal Alien Charged With Child Molestation and Pornography Able To Work With Kids Thanks to Obama Amnesty

Health Reform: So much for the “affordable” part of the Affordable Care Act. Looks like ObamaCare premiums will rocket next year while sky-high deductibles make it too costly for many to see the doctor. Last Monday, IBD’s Jed Graham broke the news that big insurers in six states “are seeking to raise rates an average […]

Obamacare’s biggest failure

Obamacare's biggest failure

Health insurance and health care are two different things. America’s politicians, White House speechwriters, and way too much of the news media should be forced to write the above sentence 1,000 times. Because they just don’t seem to understand that getting millions more Americans signed onto to some kind of health insurance is absolutely nothing […]

ObamaCare’s Tax Shock Is Far Worse Than Predicted

obamacare pitfalls

Health Reform: Providing still more evidence of how ObamaCare is “working,” most enrollees learned this year that they had to pay back a huge chunk of their insurance subsidies. So much for “affordability.” Back in January, H&R Block figured that about half of the 6.8 million people who were getting ObamaCare subsidies would owe some […]

One-Third Drop Obamacare in California

OBAMACARE

President Obama led by example when he promised us that if we liked our doctor, we could keep him. And now the entire Obamacare regime is dedicated to being, as Mark Twain put it, “economical with the truth.” Of particular note is what is called Covered California from my home state. Sharyl Attkisson, of the […]

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday he is suing the Obama administration for withholding federal money for hospitals that serve the poor, saying they are doing so because the state won’t expand Medicaid. The announcement is another twist in what has been a gritty yearlong battle with the feds over roughly […]

ObamaCare’s Financial Crisis Is Fast Approaching

obamacare going to hurt

Earlier this month, the Obama administration reversed course on spending cuts to the popular Medicare Advantage program. Instead of a nearly 1% cut in payments, private health insurers that offer Advantage plans to seniors would get a 1.25% boost. The turnabout hardly made news, which isn’t surprising since it was the third year in a […]

Obama Administration Plotting Adult Vaccination Mandates

Obama Administration Plotting Adult Vaccination Mandates

In collaboration with Big Business and special interests, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is plotting a new program to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to “encourage” more inoculations, and foist more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Federal bureaucrats and crony capitalists set to profit […]

It’s been just one month since the Federal Communications Commission voted to regulate the internet, yet freedom-loving Americans are already inundating Congress with their complaints.

For Many Americans, Opposition To ObamaCare Has Become Personal

Obamacare 'designed' to close rural hospitals

ObamaCare is celebrating its fifth anniversary, but few Americas are cheering. The Real Clear Politics average of the latest major opinion polls about the health law shows that 52.5% oppose it and only 42% approve.  The 10.5% spread is identical to the average of polls taken when the law was signed five years ago.  Approval […]

5 Reasons Why On Its 5th Anniversary ObamaCare Still Sucks

5 Reasons Why On Its 5th Anniversary ObamaCare Still Sucks

Today is ObamaCare’s 5th birthday, the most partisan major law ever passed, and it was done so by a president using procedural tricks, lies so expansive the word “Nixonian” doesn’t do them justice, and  a complicit and corrupt mainstream media that protected rather than vetted it. Like most on the hard-left, President Obama doesn’t understand […]

Obamacare ‘designed’ to close rural hospitals

Obamacare 'designed' to close rural hospitals

The Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is forcing many rural hospitals to close – just like it was meant to do, according to the former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. “I think that’s what the ACA was really designed to bring about,” said Dr. Lee Hieb. “You can say […]

Obamacare Insurance Premiums Predicted To Rise 256% in July for 7.5 million Americans

Obamacare Insurance Premiums Predicted To Rise 256% in July for 7.5 million Americans

NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Orit Pennington purchased health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) federal marketplace, because the state in which he lives, Texas, is one of 34 exchanges where the state didn’t form its own healthcare marketplace. Pennington, who owns a labeling and barcode software business, TPGTEX Label Solutions, was paying close to $750 […]

ObamaCare stinks even with subsidies

ObamaCare stinks even with subsidies

Last week’s Supreme Court arguments on ObamaCare struck me as a bit irrelevant, and not just because the case won’t impact New York. The case is about whether federal subsidies are actually legal in states that didn’t set up their own insurance exchanges — but the truth is, ObamaCare is a bad deal even with […]

The Startlingly Large Obamacare Consequenece That's About to Hit Millions of Taxpayers

The official enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act, known better as Obamacare, came to a close on Feb. 15 and wound up handily galloping past reduced expectations. Before the start of this year’s open enrollment, the Department of Health and Human Services had forecast just 9.1 million enrollees would be signed up for health […]

Obamacare Is Punishing Working-Class Americans

Employees at Staples will soon get a little bit more vacation — thanks to Obamacare. Unfortunately, that time off will be unpaid — and in most cases, unwelcome. The retailer, which employs 85,000 people, has limited part-time work to 25 hours a week to avoid Obamacare’s fines for not providing insurance to those who work […]

How Obamacare Is Destroying Health Insurance

How Obamacare Is Destroying Health Insurance

The health insurance market is changing. And the changes are not good. Even before there was Obamacare, most insurers most of the time had perverse incentives to attract the healthy and avoid the sick. But now that the Affordable Care Act has completely changed the nature of market, the perverse incentives are worse than ever. […]
