Nurses Union That Backs ‘Medicare For All’ Prevails At This Hospital

August 28, 2019 by

By Kevin Mooney ~ MIDDLETOWN, Pennsylvania—Not every nurse at St. Mary Medical Center supports “Medicare for All” or the political goals of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. But every nurse at that Bucks County hospital soon will pay dues to a labor union that has backed Sanders and government-run health care, now that a majority of […]

If Supremes Slap ObamaCare, It’s Health Insurers Who Lose

June 9, 2015 by

By Betsy McCaughey, PhD ~ This week health insurers announced they will hike premiums on ObamaCare plans by double digits in 2016. Yet it’s not ObamaCare buyers who are getting gouged. For the most part, what consumers have to pay is calculated based on their income. They don’t pay the sticker price. It’s you – […]

By Alan Caruba ~ “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.   It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for […]

The Littlest Victims of Obamacare

By Michelle Malkin It’s time for America’s youth to buckle up and take a rough ride on Reality Highway. For the past two years, President Obama has promised our children the moon, stars, rainbows, unicorns and universal health care for all. But the White House Santa’s cradle-to-grave entitlement mandates are a spectacularly predictable bust. Don’t […]

Every Awful Thing You Need To Know About Obamacare

By Alan Caruba October 14, 2010, Politico.com – “A federal judge in Florida will allow parts of a multi-state lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the health care overhaul to proceed — including a challenge to the controversial requirement that nearly all Americans buy insurance.” Some good news at last. There’s something faintly obscene in the […]

By Conn Carroll President Barack Obama again asserted today that his health care plan would be deficit neutral chiding: “The argument that opponents are making against this bill does not hold water.” But while the President’s most ardent supporters are trying to explain to each other why the benefits of the bill do not start […]

The Slaves Of The Democrat Party

By Alan Caruba It was a fitting symbol of the pack of lies that constitute “global warming.” The President of the United States, along with the Speaker of the House, had to flee Copenhagen’s Climate Change Conference because of a snow storm of epic proportions for that Danish city and to return swiftly to Washington, […]

By Dan Holler Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has set the stage for a major vote Monday morning at 1:00 AM – one that would require the support of 60 Senators.

Demography Decides Everything

December 20, 2009 by

By Alan Caruba When I listen to politicians arguing the merits of some piece of legislation, I am usually 99% sure they have no idea how demography-—population—-will effect the outcome of their grand schemes. This is particularly true of advocates of fixed and often flawed ideas about the environment. Most “save the Earth” true believers […]

Welcome To The Democrat Party’s Civil War

By Michelle Malkin Seems like only yesterday the Washington establishment had proclaimed the death of the GOP. Pundits churned out public autopsy reports faster than the L.A. County Medical Examiner. Liberals gloated over the supposedly irreparable fissures between right-wing populists and Beltway Republican elites. Conservatism, we were told, was suffering brain death and heart failure. […]

Five Major Faults With The Health Care Bills

November 9, 2009 by

By Nina Owcharenko Current efforts by Congress to “reform” the health care system are centered on several flawed policy initiatives that will transfer more power and decisions to Washington and away from patients and families. Rather than create a massive government-based health care system and dislocate people from their existing private coverage, policymakers should focus […]

Think Health Care Is Expensive Now? Wait Until It’s ‘Free’

By Tom McLaughlin Recently, I asked my students how much it costs for a doctor visit. “My mother pays $15,” said one. “Fifteen dollars?” I asked. “Yeah,” he said. “That’s what she paid.” “Okay,” I said, “But is that all it cost?” I pointed out that the average doctor visit costs between $95 and $265.

By Michelle Malkin at Family Security Matters Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida has found his calling: death demagogue. First, he accused Republicans of wanting sick patients to “die quickly.” Next, he likened health insurance problems to a “holocaust in America.” Now, he’s unveiled a new website entitled “namesofthedead.com” in memory of the “more than […]

By Rory Cooper at The Foundry “My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government…Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.” Or so President Obama says on the White House website.

Mr. President, Please Do NOTHING

By Alan Caruba at Warning Signs I had a strange epiphany the other day. If I were to write a letter to President Obama, it would say, “Please do nothing.” It seems to me that Obama’s forte is to do nothing much of the time. Well, not “nothing.” He is giving speeches, but those incessant, […]

By Colonel Bob Pappas (USMC, Ret.) at Family Security Matters Among liberals are those whose argument about universal health care with this retired military member is, “You enjoyed ‘free’ health care while you were in the service, and continue to have ‘free’ care now that you have retired.” They lump in other retirement benefits that […]

By Michelle Malkin at Family Security Matters Lights, camera, agitprop! The curtains opened on yet another artfully staged performance of Obamacare Theater this week. One hundred and fifty doctors took their places on the plush lawn outside the West Wing — many acting like “Twilight” groupies with cameras instead of credible medical professionals. The president […]
