Is ObamaCare Causing Health Care Rationing?

December 30, 2014 by


By John C. Goodman ~ The argument for Obamacare really boils down to one idea: people without health insurance won’t get medical care. Or if they do get it, the care will be too little and too late. Insure everybody, we were told, and everyone will have access to high quality, timely care. But is […]

You Can’t Have Your Plan HHS quietly dropped another ObamaCare bomb Saturday morning, admitting that 15,000 signups on never got to insurers in the first few weeks of the rollout.

ObamaCare: The Neutron Bomb That Will Decimate the U.S. Economy

November 25, 2013 by


By CHARLES HUGH SMITH  ObamaCare will act as a neutron bomb on the U.S. economy for systemic reasons. Longtime readers know I have repeatedly explained why healthcare, i.e. sickcare, will bankrupt the nation. ObamaCare simply speeds up the coming collapse.

Obama’s Edicts Are Dictatorial, Not Presidential

November 23, 2013 by


by Betsy McCaughey, PhD   ~  President Obama says he can “fix” the millions of canceled health insurance plans with an administrative change.

The culprit behind the cancellations is not an administrative regulation, […]

Another American Health Care System Failure

February 3, 2010 by


NOT! If the American health care system ranks below thirty other countries, as one of our commenters recently claimed, why is Danny Williams, the Canadian Premier of Newfoundland, coming to America later this week for heart surgery? Why isn’t he traveling to Michael Moore’s idea of health-care utopia, Cuba? Then again, when Moore made propaganda […]

Global Warming Insurance: Don’t Buy It

January 14, 2010 by


By Nick Loris The reason insurance exists is because risk does too. For instance, with car insurance, an insurance company calculates the risk of a driver getting into an accident by considering a number of variables including age, location, type of vehicle, etc. Consumers buy insurance to protect against unexpected events that could jeopardize their […]

Historic UNCONSTITUTIONAL Vote in the People’s House

November 7, 2009 by


While Congress has overstepped it’s authority on numerous occasions in the past, this one takes the cake. At the behest of Nancy “Astroturf” Pelosi, HR 3962 was barely passed by a vote of 220-215. One lone RINO, Joseph Cao, a newb and apparently not going to be incumbent for long, sided with the sell-outs. On […]

When Exactly Did I Become A Racist?

September 22, 2009 by


When he was a candidate for President, Barack Obama promised us Hope And Change. And in one instance, that promise is coming true. I have had to change what I had always believed. And I hope somone can tell me why. You see, in today’s political landscape, I am seen as a racist. The President […]

September 9, 2009 by


(The President is getting desperate. Despite whatever his teleprompter tells him to say tonight, it’s time for America to put it’s collective foot down and tell him NO!And it is much easier to do than most people think.)

Don’t Be Fooled By Obamacare 2.0

August 19, 2009 by


There is an old trick that suggests that if you want something, to ask for something totally outrageous first. When you are told the thing you are asking for is absolutely out of the question, you simply scale back or re-name your request, and chances are you will get what you are asking for. The […]

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Obama Style

August 16, 2009 by


The Obama administration has taken the concept of don’t ask don’t tell to a whole new level. They don’t want you to ask, and even if you dare to do so, they aren’t going to tell. So how does White House press secretary Robert Gibbs explain people receiving e-mails from Obama crony David Axelrod regarding […]

August 14, 2009 by


The Obamaites aren’t satisfied with taking health care decisions out of the hands of individuals, they want to enact yet another violation of the U.S. Constitution while they are at it. There are many problems with the health care “reform” bill now working it’s way through the halls of Congress. The provision that perhaps should […]

Only A Racist Would Call Someone A Socialist

August 13, 2009 by


According to the mainstream media, calling someone a Socialist is the same as calling them the “N” word. Are the wheels starting to fall off of the reality bus? Does this mean that the other “N” word “Nazi”, is defined as anyone who doesn’t agree with Nancy Pelosi? This is stretching things far beyond rational […]
