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…

Trail Balloons

Politicians are always floating trial balloons to test the winds for their various programs. I have my own balloons, and I often wish I could use them to float off to another planet For instance, I received an email from a fellow who had spent 40 years working in procurement for the U.S. military.

My husband (now retired) was a sole practitioner.  I worked for him. …

Healthcare.gov is Merely a Preview of Obamacare

I don’t often feel sorry for the Obama administration, but in the case of the massive technical problems plaguing the Healthcare.gov website, I almost do. It has to be awfully embarrassing, after all of the heated opposition to the Affordable Care Act and the Democrats’ impassioned defense of it, to have the program’s technological interface…

Unintended Consequences

With ObamaCare so much in the news lately, we should all keep in mind that Nancy Pelosi told us that the Affordable Care Act, as it was originally called, would have to be passed before we’d know what was in it. A lot of people thought she was kidding. I wasn’t one of them. For…
