That Eeeeeeeeeeevul Walmart

How dare Walmart offer more comprehensive insurance plans at a lower price than Obamacare! Richard Pollock at the Washington Examiner: New Obamacare health insurance enrollees may feel a pang of envy when they eye the coverage plans offered by Walmart to its employees. For many years, the giant discount retailer has been the target of […]

A Note Worth Remembering

From The American Spectator: While ObamaCare supporters may be on the defensive right now, it’s important to remember that advocates of government-run health care will use any angle to build on their gains — even if it means exploiting the failures of government health care. We should look at Obamacare as the first step towards […]

Please, Sir, Can I Have Some More?

Is there anything that could make Senator Baucus’ disdain for the American people more clear than openly admitting he isn’t even slightly interested in doing his goddamn job?

I love it when people insist that we should go to a socialized health care system because of how well it works in England. The New York Times: Perhaps the only consistent thing about Britain’s socialized health care system is that it is in a perpetual state of flux, its structure constantly changing as governments […]

More Obamacare Shadiness

First we have a massively unpopular redistributionist bill shoved through Congress against the will of the American people, and now we have more El Supremo BS with completely bypassing congress appointing the guy who will administer Obamacare. Robert Pear of The New York Times: President Obama will bypass Congress and appoint Dr. Donald M. Berwick, […]

My Way or Pay

N.C. Aizenman via The Washington Post concerning the new “tan tax” in Obamacare: But the levy’s supporters argued from the start that it had a dual purpose: to raise funds to cover some of the cost of extending health coverage to the uninsured and to discourage a habit that scientific studies have linked with increased […]

Po-ta-to or To-mah-to

Some will call it a warning shot across the bow of those eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil health insurance companies; those with a brain will call it Señor Hopey McChangey playing a pre-emptive game of CYA for what many know is an inevitable “side effect” of Obamacare.

Let’s Go Team!

Let’s hope that Team Mostly-Red can win this battle.  Janet Adamy and Evan Perez via The Wall Street Journal: The federal government formally responded to the most serious legal challenge to the health-care overhaul, invoking its powers under the Constitution to regulate interstate commerce and impose taxes. At least 20 state attorneys general, most of […]

Getting Paid to be Self Responsible

Though I understand the concept well, being a 33 year old who has already suffered a heart attack, what ever happened to the days when not fucking dying was incentive enough for one to take his meds?  I sure hope this idea doesn’t become too popular as I’m sure that it will only be a […]

We Still No Likey

After a couple of months, we still no likey.  In fact, we no likey even more than when ObamaCare was initially signed in to law.

Cry Me a River

Charles M. Blow via The New York Times: Such has been the narrative of his presidency: being treated like the janitor in chief — mopping up messes made by others and being chastised for leaving streaks. It couldn’t be that much of his chastisement is actually earned. I mean it isn’t as if he shoved […]

Next time you hear Obama claim that he has lowered taxes for 95% of the people, you ought to be hearing, “I will absolutely raise taxes for those making less than $250,000 a year, yet I will continue to say that I won’t because the taxes will all be hidden in everything that affects your […]

The Numbers Just Don’t Add Up

I’ve been wondering how it is that the Demotards were able to claim that we would save money by taking a health care entitlement program that covers some people, and turning in to an exponentially larger health care program that covers everyone.  I’m no mathematician or economist, I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express […]

The Plan All Along

Robert Pear via The New York Times: Insurers and insurance regulators say that some companies will be unable or unwilling to meet the new standards. Somehow I get the feeling that this was the point of ObamaCare all along.
