ObamaCare Deals Blow to Liberalism

SCOTT S. POWELL: Although unexpected, the unraveling of the Affordable Care Act may deliver a mortal blow to liberalism. At the very least, it presents a momentous opportunity for a majority of the American people to recognize that dependence on unaccountable government bureaucracies is a loser’s wager. Since failure is often the best teacher, the […]

The Uninsured Hate ObamaCare

Health Care: A new survey shows that ObamaCare is less popular with the uninsured than with the public. How is this even possible?

Obama’s Obamacare Fix is Sugar-Coated Manure

Frankly, I’m sick of the dishonesties that gush from President Obama’s mouth. Last week, he promised an “administrative fix” for Obamacare, which was nothing more than an attempt to revive his tanking poll numbers, protect at-risk Democrats up for reelection in 2014, and deflect blame to insurance companies. Obama doesn’t care that his “administrative fix” […]
