IRS Employees HATE Obama’s Crappy Health Care System

Every other story about Obama’s union pals and government employees demanding waivers from the health-care disaster they supported pale in comparison to this one. ObamaCare is all about expanding the power of the Internal Revenue Service – that’s the only promise it has actually kept, the only part of the 11,000-page program that’s actually working the way it was supposed...

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, the White House has a...

Has America Become A Nation Of Part-Time Workers?

Just when you thought that America’s labor market was improving, with employment gains averaging about 200,000 a month, comes Mort Zuckerman, real estate magnate and chairman of U.S. News & World Report, throwing cold water on any optimism. The truth, writes Zuckerman in the Wall Street Journal, is that, according to the Labor Department’s household survey, almost three-quarters of new... Read Full Article

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.

Congress Cant Weasel out of Obamacare

During the course of the long, contentious and often under-handed battle to pass ObamaCare, Congress did do one honorable thing: it included the Grassley Amendment in the legislation that ensured that the government could not offer members of the House and Senate and their staffs any insurance plans but those created by the bill or those that were part of...

Obamacare May Kill Part Time Jobs

Under ObamaCare, the 30-hour workweek may take a cue from the clumsy Dodo bird and disappear — due to clumsy regulation. If that sounds extreme, just consider: For a worker making $16 an hour for 29 hours per week, the 30th hour of work each week could cost an employer $112.15. In other words, ObamaCare could cost an employer as... Read Full Article

Obamacare causes Insurance Cancellations…

WASHINGTON –  New health insurance rules under ObamaCare could lead to a host of personal insurance plans being canceled as early as this fall, a scenario expected to cause consumer confusion.

A longtime advocate of single-payer, socialized health care, Dingell enthusiastically embraced Obamacare’s bureaucratic, Washington’s-way-or-the-highway approach as... Read Full Article
