Why Obamacare’s ‘20 Million’ Number Is Fake

From the Daily Signal: Liberals (Lefties) are notorious for caring about “groups” of people, but when it gets down to individual persons, not so much. You’re about to see this play out in spades as Democrats cry crocodile tears over the coming repeal of Obamacare. You hear it over and over again: “This will be catastrophic for the 20 million people who were previously uninsured but now have coverage! You can’t take away their health care!” First of all, no one is talking about doing that. Any repeal legislation will have a transition period for those who got coverage through … Continue reading

Repeal, Replace Obamacare – AT THE SAME TIME

    How Sen. Rand Paul Would Replace Obamacare Fox Business January 5, 2017 “What I want is to put a replacement in place immediately so we can fix the problems, so as it unwinds we have a replacement for it,” Paul said.

Obamacare Architect Jonathon Gruber on Hot Seat in Vermont

From Breitbart: On Monday Darcie Johnston, head of Vermonters for Health Care Freedom, told Breitbart News that Gruber may have a “phantom billing” problem. “Jonathan Gruber has failed to provide any evidence that the $80,000 he’s been paid by the state of Vermont for 800 hours of work he claimed was performed by unidentified research assistants was actually performed, or that these research assistants even exist and were paid,” Johnston told Breitbart News. “There’s a term in health care for the practice of billing for services not provided.

Obamacare Is Dead, Dead, Dead

From: nationalreview.com,  by Kevin D. Williamson,  on Nov 4, 2015,  see the article HERE. It doesn’t work because it couldn’t work. Regardless of whether there is a President Cruz or a President Rubio in January 2017, regardless of the existence or size of a Republican majority in Congress, the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has failed. The grand vision of an efficient pseudo-market in health insurance under enlightened federal management — the heart of Obamacare — is not coming to pass. Obamacare, meaning the operating model that undergirded the law that Congress passed and President Barack Obama … Continue reading

School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials.

Time For ” Weasel Of The Week”.

Yes, my friends, it is Sunday. Time to find out just WHO epitomizes Weaseldom the best. In a week that will be remembered for a VERY long time, we have seen just how the left has destroyed the notion of free choice for goods and services, codifying faggotry, along with decimating the Constitution. My choice for Weasels this week was not a hard one to make. With their undying devotion to ruining the last, great bastion of liberty and freedom in the entire world, this week’s Weasels are deserving ONLY of our scorn and derision. These fools are soon going … Continue reading

$2.1 BILLION Obamacare website STILL doesn’t work and neither does Obama

They’re both overhyped and underperforming   The healthcare.gov website is a shining example of the incompetence of everything related to Barack Obama. Like him, it still doesn’t work right either. On the eve of open enrollment for Obamacare, a “glitch” prevented users from submitting their applications for several hours on Saturday, February 14th. What’s that you say? He didn’t design the system. He didn’t write the code, he didn’t test it. How can we hold him responsible for a crappy website? It’s easy – he was the executive in charge, and as such, he is responsible for its success or … Continue reading

How Congress became a “small business” to Qualify for 75% Subsidies under Obamacare

  Did you know that Congress, with nearly 16,000 employees is a “small business”? Yeah, that was news to me too. We heard the news flashes and read the headlines that Congress would be joining the people in being covered under Obamacare – that was the news a couple of years ago. But, as usual, we didn’t get the full picture. Evidence is showing that Congress was disingenuous (what a surprise) when they said that they were being covered by the same healthcare system as us ordinary Americans. Their congressional staff members raised holy hell when they found out that … Continue reading

Garnet92   We’ve all heard the old saying about insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Someone please explain to me why this action by the IRS shouldn’t qualify as insanity. Seven months after federal officials fired CGI Federal for its botched work on Obamacare website Healthcare.gov, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million IT contract for its new Obamacare tax program. Bloomberg now … Continue reading

The IRS Scandal … It’s Baaack …

  The Obamacare-IRS Scandal From: Judicial Watch’s Weekly Update, January 16, 2015, read the whole report HERE. There is a lawsuit that could bring President Obama’s federal healthcare crashing down under the weight of its own lawlessness. A few weeks ago, we filed an amicus brief in support of plaintiffs who are making the plain obvious point to the United States Supreme Court that President Obama (or any other president) should not be permitted to rewrite federal statues in brazen violation of the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers.

Obamacare Blamed for Killing Hospitals

From WND: Eighteen acute-care hospitals across the United States shut their doors in 2013. At least 12 more hospitals have closed this year in rural areas alone. More are getting out the plywood to nail over windows and barricades for doors. Don’t worry, it’s just the new normal under Obamacare, says Lee Hieb, M.D. “Events happening now give us some idea of what medicine will be reduced to in the future,” Hieb writes in her forthcoming book, “Surviving the Medical Meltdown: Your Guide to Living Through the Disaster of Obamacare.” “Today, all over America, small and midsize hospitals as well as … Continue reading

Andrew Napolitano: Are Gruber’s Remarks Legal Basis For Repeal?

This whole Gruber thing ought to be a huge scandal.  The lefty media is dismissing this as a non-event, and the administration is blowing it off and claiming that gruber was just “some consultant”.  Yeah right.  Anyone paying attentions knows this is bullshit. Thanks to Gruber’s own admission, the legislation was deliberately based on a lies and deception.  The question remains: on whose orders and direction?.  No doubt it came from the top. Here it is in Gruber’s own words.  WH logs confirm his visit. The Congressional Budget Office was given fraudulent data via Gruber’s economic models, and thus provided … Continue reading
