Obama Is Looting The Treasury To Pay Off Insurers

February 29, 2016 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ The Obama administration will tell any lie and break any law to prevent the president’s signature health-care program from collapsing.

October 2, 2015 by

The Obamacare Disaster

July 17, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ While the issue of immigration is uppermost in people’s minds right now, it is likely at this point halfway through his second term that President Obama will be identified by historians most closely with his signature, namesake legislation, the Affordable Patient Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. They will do so […]

Give Veterans The Care They Earned

May 19, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ Leave it to President Obama and Democrats in Congress to enact “comprehensive” health reform and overlook the plight of 8.5 million veterans.

The Next ObamaCare Disasters

April 18, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said.

Obama Makes Insurance Company Bailout Bigger Despite Public Outrage

March 21, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ Some people insist ObamaCare is here to stay. Nonsense. President Obama is dismantling it himself, lawlessly hacking off  provisions as they  become unpopular in order to minimize Democratic losses in the fall election. Health reform be damned. Gone is the Washington definition of “essential benefits” that plans must include. Gone is […]

March 13, 2014 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ Back in September, our family received an Obamacare-induced health insurance death notice.

How ObamaCare Slaps The Sick

March 6, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ “Lies,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calls the TV ads that feature people complaining about ObamaCare.

Obama Set To Delay Another Health Care Mandate; Networks Ignore

March 5, 2014 by


By Matt Hadro ~ President Obama will be enacting yet another delay for ObamaCare, but the networks were silent about the prospect of it on Tuesday night.

Voter’s Remorse Over Obama

February 26, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I don’t recall when I first wrote about Obama telling lies, but it surely must have been early in his first term, if not even earlier in the 2008 campaign. So much of the information about his life was subject to question that it raised my concern. The way Obamacare was […]

Obama Silences Complaining Employers With IRS

February 26, 2014 by


By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ President Barack Obama is using the IRS to silence employers unhappy about Obamacare.

Hidden in the gobbledygook (on […]

Obama(S)care: Con Artists And Criminals In Charge

February 20, 2014 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ Question: If Obamacare officials cannot prevent accused embezzlers from infiltrating their offices, how can they protect enrollees from grifters, con artists, and thieves in the federal health-insurance-exchange system?
