From its inception, the individual and employer mandates got the ink. But it was always the insurance mandates that were key to Obamacare’s main objective: To kill the private insurance industry in order to make a single-payer, i.e. socialized medicine, system inevitable.
President Barack Obama and fellow Democrats spewed forth a veritable cornucopia of lies that Americans happy with their “current” policies, could keep them.
Never mind that the government hadn’t the power before the Supreme Court upheld the individual and Continue reading
This month and next mark the fifth anniversaries of the Housing Bust-caused financial crisis that led to TARP and other Fat Cat-bailouts and the election of the purveyor of Obamanomics.
Next month also marks the seventh anniversary of the Election of 2006 that returned Democrats to power in the House for four years and in the Senate for six years and counting that have, along with President Barack Obama, delivered to us: Obamacare, a non-Stimulus, Dodd-Frank, and a War on Coal and other affordable energy.

Offered no less than two chances to delay Obamacare’s individual mandate earlier this month, not one Democrat in the United States Senate refused to grant Majority Leader Harry Reid’s motions to table those delays during the government shutdown.
Yet, now that the debt limit has been raised and Big Government is back in full swing, legally; elected Democrat lawmakers revert to their apparently preferred role of granting their lawmaking power to Chief Executive Barack Obama.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Continue reading
We’re not sure if the ghost(s) of Anniston and Gadsden, Alabama, respectively, caught on security-camera video below, were thrown out of now sheet-less hospital beds, because they failed to successfully navigate a state or federal government health insurance exchange.
Not sure if they simply failed to survive hours of fruitless attempts to purchase insurance on the federal Obamacare exchange.
But we do know that they desperately crave one of the oldest and cheapest medicines known to mankind… Continue reading
Has America ever had a smaller Chief Executive?
Yes, I know that James Madison stood only 5 feet, 4 inches tall; but both he and Dolley were giants compared to a 6′ 1″ President that uses his executive discretion (and a Democratic Party led by Senate majority Leader Harry Reid that denies funding) to purposely cause pain and inconvenience to the best Americans and most vulnerable among us from war veterans and the survivors of the fallen wishing to visit monuments and memorials to denying funding for NIH cancer patients.

The only “faction” that controls whether to default, remains president of the United States.
Conservatives should be happy that Speaker John Boehner will agree to a short-term raising of the debt limit while insisting that President Barack Obama and the Democrats compromise over a continuing budget resolution to end the government shutdown.
Not because the former removes the specter of an actual “default”, but rather because it removes any plausible Democratic Party or media (but I repeat myself) allegation that a Republican refusal to raise the debt ceiling could be the cause of any downward market activity before or after the Obama Treasury Department-declared deadline of October 17.
What’s next, government exchanges for health care-related goods and services like personal trainers, walking shoes, housing, automobiles, gasoline, food and ferry boat rides?
Think that’s far-fetched, when President Obama’s Democratic Party policies already attack the poor and middle class by increasing the price of shelter, transportation and sustenance via EPA, HUD and other regulations?
How surreal is it, that in order to buy a private health insurance policy one must employ an Obamacare-government “navigator”? Almost as surreal it has been to be limited to Blue Cross Blue Shield under so many state health insurance monopolies in pre-Obamacare-America. Continue reading
