Next time a liberal Democrat justifies Obamacare as a better alternative than private insurance companies, remind them of sovereign immunity.

Before King Obama and his Royal Court of congressional Democrats passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, prospective patients weren’t forced enter into contracts with private health insurance companies they didn’t trust. But if they did enter into a contract with a non-government company of any kind, they could sue for monetary damages for false advertising that induced them into the contract and for breach of the contract if the company didn’t abide by it’s terms.

grim reaperFrom 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

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

The GOP needs a government shutdown to re-establish GUT-bone fides with the American people.

Republicans should allow President Obama to shut down the government on behalf of his Big Business and government employee friends to whom he has granted exemptions, subsidies and delays.

Soon after his first inaugural in 2009, President Barack Obama demanded that health care reform be passed quickly to ensure a robust recovery and balanced budget, and that it must be done in comprehensive way. Then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) insisted the Affordable Care Act should only be read to discover its specifics, after it became law. Having received zero Republican votes, Obamacare became the Law of the Land. Continue reading

Do the Constitution’s separation of powers and concomitant duty to compromise apply to all presidents save for President Obama?

Few things enrage this rooster more than to have our intelligence insulted by vacuous  excuses for cowardice from those who know better, yet expect political allies to share their glazed-over looks and accept them as reasoned arguments. So it goes on Sunday political shows and The (Fox News, Special Report) Panel where usually reliable conservatives dismiss, out of hand, the notion that Republicans holding Article I’s power-of-the-purse could force the holder of mere Article II veto-power to compromise on Obamacare to prevent a government shutdown.

The best we can get out of Charles Krauthammer & Co. are combinations of the following: Continue reading

Labor unions, public and private, have been as loyal as any faction of the Democratic Party; so it seemed a good omen for future repeal or de-funding when the Obamacare-supporting AFL-CIO lost 40,000 ILWU members over that support. But then we discover that the International Longshore and Warehouse Union are only upset that the Affordable Care Act doesn’t grant their particular union a tax-waiver and socialize health care in America more radically.

In an August 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ILWU President Robert McEllrath cited quite a list of grievances as reasons for the dissolution of their affiliation, but prominent among them was the AFL-CIO’s support of Obamacare: Continue reading
