obamacare millennial propaganda Moveon.org is sounding the alarm, claiming that Obamacare is threatened if Millennials don’t participate. Back in March of last year, Mark Horne wrote about how Obamacare might be destroyed because Millennials don’t like the program.

More Evidence the Government Does Not Care About Your Health

go4life If you want to find out about how to improve your health, free guidance from the government may cost you more than you expect! This is a politics and culture blog, not a health and fitness blog. But the posts have talked about diet and health issues more than anyone would expect because the government keeps claiming to be able to help us with its alleged expertise.

Obamacare seemed risky and the system had a mechanism for inducing insurance companies to cooperate. That mechanism ended up simply giving insurance companies money.

While about a third of veterans have died waiting for VA care, the new scandal involves mail that was supposed to be sent to veterans. According to the Washington Examiner, The VA's Office of Inspector General said it launched an "unannounced inspection" of the Los Angeles Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Revenge of Death Panels against Sarah Palin

Medicare Cuts Demonize Sarah Palin and pay doctors to talk to people about “end of life” care. NPR is the master at promoting the government’s endgame.

Your tax dollars at works, along with donations from Liberals and organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Remember so-called death panels? When Congress debated the Affordable Read more [...] Continue reading →

Federal Hypocrites Threaten Alabama for Defunding Planned Parenthood

abortiondoc Defunding Planned Parenthood removes options from consumers and is thus forbidden say the people who promised we could keep our doctors. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. People who lie for and steal for (taxes) an organization that devours infants for their spare parts are not going to be ashamed to commit a bit of bold-faced hypocrisy. Such people are quite shameless. How could they not be? But the excuse they are giving to claim that Alabama can be prosecuted for defunding Planned Parenthood Read more [...] Continue reading →

Congress Defrauds Healthcare Exchange; Claims to Be a Small Business

112th Congress Convenes On Capitol Hill Congress isn’t supposed to be able to use the healthcare exchange, so they broke the rules. This blog has reported on how the President has treated Obamacare as a personal empowerment to give orders rather than as a law in any real sense. Whenever there was a perceived problem, the President would simply change the law to suit his wishes. In a sense, the Supreme Court joined him by changing the law as well in order to make it workable. It seems Congress has been doing the same thing, breaking Read more [...] Continue reading →

What We Should Learn from American Dental Tourism in Mexico

HealthCareCosts American dental tourism in Mexico saves U.S. citizens thousands of dollars. A friend of mine lived in the Seattle area in the early nineties.
