5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Obamacare

turkey

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…

Boiling Frogs

ObamaCare is merely the natural extension of the welfare state we’ve evolved into over the past century. We now offer 99 weeks of unemployment insurance, which acts to discourage its recipients from seeking employment; affirmative action, which officially condones racism; a disability insurance program that’s an open invitation to fraud; food stamps for nearly 50…

A One-Man Wrecking Crew

It usually requires an actual dictator to destroy a country. It takes a power-crazed lunatic such as Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro or the Ayatollah Khomeini, to turn a nation into a cesspool. That’s what makes Barack Obama unique. In his case, it only took one man to, in his own words, radically transform a free…

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.

Thus, what…

“If I Like Your Health Care Plan” and “The Piltdown Man Signs Up for Obamacare”

Years ago, I wrote a TV movie. It was that semi-mythical thing known as a docudrama. That means the basic premise was factual, but names were changed and, more importantly, characters and dialogue were invented so that you would sit there through the last commercial. As it happens, the movie was never produced, mainly because…

Is Obama Clueless — or Dishonest?

I’m always amused when I hear my liberal friends say that they’re pro choice.  What they mean, of course, is they’re pro choice when it comes to abortions. But many of these same liberals support nanny state laws that tell us how much soda we can drink from one cup, or what kind of fats…

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…

Fraud in the Inducement — and President Obama

Bulletin!  This just in!!! Even the so-called mainstream media have caught on.  Even they, his most loyal acolytes, have begun pounding Jay Carney, the president’s flack, over the rollout of ObamaCare. It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that the whole procedure is one great big mess.  Even the libs on Saturday Night Live…
