Could Pajama Onesies Be the Key to Engaging Young Americans?

In my column last week, I explained why I didn’t believe it was a smart idea for Republican candidates, in 2014, to present a GOP comprehensive healthcare plan as an alternative to Obamacare. My reasoning was that it would only give the Democrats something to demagogue, and draw some heat off of themselves, much like…

What’s Worse: A Liar or a Realist?

In the wake of the horrendous roll-out of Obamacare, there’s been a new narrative emerging, not just in the political rhetoric flying around Washington, but also in the national media. That narrative is that the Republican Party needs to come up with a comprehensive healthcare solution of their own to present as an alternative to…

The Six Million Dollar Man vs. the One BILLION Dollar Website

Bloomberg’s Peter Gosselin recently reported that the taxpayer cost of Healthcare.gov (aka the Obamacare website) has now surpassed one billion dollars. Yes, that’s billion with a b! This is certainly a far cry from the original projected cost of the project, which was stated to be no more than $93.7 million. When we found out…

The Mainstream Media Have Made the Conservative Media Prophets

I’ve long thought of conservative-leaning news outlets as being only small counterbalances to the dominant liberal slant that exists in the mainstream media. Fox News is a perfect example. Though the network fares well against its national news competitors on an individual basis, it is merely a lone conservative voice in an industry that is…

The GOP Can’t Let the Dems Off the Hook for Obamacare

Their mindset is basically that Bush lied, soldiers died. And…

5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Obamacare

It’s been nearly impossible to find any positive news about the Affordable Care Act lately. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the roll-out of a $600 million website that didn’t work. We’ve discovered that the Obama administration outright lied to the American public about several of the law’s selling points. We’ve witnessed the cancellations…

It’s Not the Lie… It’s That the Media Suddenly Cares

What exactly constitutes a scandal? I see that question debated on the Internet from time to time, as well as on the news networks. Many people impulsively associate the term with an illegal activity, but the textbook definition of it is actually quite broad and thus fairly subjective: A disgraceful or discreditable action. Thus, what…

Why Would Obama Want People to Keep Their Old Plans?

By merely adding up recent media reports of insurance providers sending out cancellation notices, as conservative blogger David Hogberg did the other day, one can find that nearly 1.5 million Americans have already lost their health insurance plans as a result of Obamacare. As Hogberg points out, this number really just scratches the surface, because…
