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 […]

Richard Simmons Obamacare Ad spurs Audit

Richard Simmons Obamacare Ad Triggers California Audit

Richard Simmons’ massive, eight-hour, $1.37 million Obamacare ad spurred a California state senator to request a full audit of the state exchange. The YouTube ad, featuring a gyrating Simmons and chock full of Hollywood celebrities, was an attempt to get Californians to enroll in Obamacare coverage. But the prohibitive expense is raising questions given the […]

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” […]

HealthCare.Gov: ACCESS DENIED

Let me start by stating I am completely for “affordable” health care. Let me add that I’m not convinced we’ve found the answer. After visiting the www.healthcare.gov website, I soon realized we’re headed for some challenging moments in the very near future. First, I was summarily placed in ‘line’…..aka ‘governmental red tape’….. While the process […]

ObamaCare will Target your Sex Life

Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?” Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help.

How ObamaCare Hurts Patients

The 340B program was meant to help about 90 hospitals buy drugs to treat the poor. Now 1,675 hospitals qualify. President Obama promised to mend the failings in the American health-care system, and yet for cancer treatment, ObamaCare is taking a rotten feature of the old system and making it worse.

ObamaCare: 1 Million from Work to Welfare

A new study suggests President Obama’s Affordable Care Act might have yet another huge and negative unintended consequence: if low-income adults can get health insurance through Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, they are less likely to try and get a job — or keep a job.

Unworkable ObamaCare: Continuing Chaos

Remember when President Obama famously promised that if you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan? It was a brilliantly crafted political sound bite. Turns out, the statement is untrue. Aside from that small detail, the slightly larger problem is that the Obama administration doesn’t have a health-care plan. Yes, […]

Obamacare is Lipstick on a Pig

It’s been one year since the Supreme Court decision that allowed Obama administration officials to begin implementing the Affordable Care Act, and the frequency and volume of reports about the challenges facing those reforms—and the difficulties they are visiting on those who were supposed to benefit from them—are increasing dramatically.

Will Obamacare Kill Happy Hour?

When Prohibition ended in 1933, Pennsylvania governor Gifford Pinchot promised to make purchasing alcohol “as inconvenient and expensive as possible.” To this day, Pennsylvania has some of the most stringent—and absurd—liquor laws in the country. Beer and wine can’t be sold in grocery stores, and you can only purchase six-packs of beer at delis or […]

How to Handle Obamacare’s Suffocating Insurance Costs

The best way to understand the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is to realize that it confers large benefits on some people and imposes large costs on others. If you are one of the ones who will qualify for expanded Medicaid, you will get something for nothing. Although there are quality issues and access problems, including […]

More Obamacare and Government Incompetence

Steve Brill, who wrote TIME’s Bitter Pill cover story last month, has a follow-up in his Reuters column about Obamacare’s inability to implement the rules it has set in place against the depredation of so-called “non-profit” hospitals.  I am really growing concerned about the sloppiness of this Administration. Bill Clinton, by contrast, was a governor. He […]
