The only “work” stimulated for non-government union employees by President Obama’s 2009 “stimulus” bill was for U-Haul to move adult children’s furniture back to their parents’ homes.
Obamacare will force children lucky enough to have full-time jobs to rent Ryder trucks to transport mom and dad’s stuff to their abodes. Maybe President Barack Obama would consider issuing an executive order allowing adults to stay on their children’s employer-mandated insurance until a death panel deems them no longer insurable by Obamacare standards?
Full disclosure, when I was a young child in the early 1970s, my great-grandmother permanently resided with my maternal grandmother and my great aunt frequently resided Continue reading
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
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
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
