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 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.

Obamacare: Badly Designed, Poorly Implemented

Obamacare on “Planet Dingell”

Michigan Rep. John Dingell, D-Ann Arbor, continues to be an excellent barometer for Obamacare’s false truths and false promises. To Obamacare supporters’ claims that the government takeover is really a market-oriented reform, Dingell’s VIP presence at President Obama’s 2010 signing is a bracing contradiction. 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 ›
