Republican Candidates Poll Better than Hillary

The Fox headline, in my opinion, is rather biased: “FOX News Poll: Rubio does best against Clinton in 2016 ballot test.” Republicans want a candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton. A new Fox News poll finds Marco Rubio performs best against the presumptive Democratic nominee. Rubio has an eight-point edge: 50 percent to Clinton’s 42 percent. This isn’t inaccurate, but I think the more amazing story is that Hillary doesn’t poll better than any top Republican candidate! Then again, Clinton — Read more […]

Obamacare Is a Socialist Fantasy

The big news about UnitedHealthcare bailing on Obamacare may make people forget about the failed Obamacare cooperatives and, more importantly, why they failed. Despite the widespread belief that expert planning was involved in the Affordable Care Act, it is pretty obvious that these co-ops were thrown together as the embodiment of a bunch of Liberal/Progressive cliches. They were doomed to fail. According to Reason.com: A government program being poorly run is nothing new, of course. But the Read more […]

Obamacare Falling Apart? Yes, Please!

The government spin doctors would have us believe that Obamacare is the most successful federal program ever.  Just the other day, I saw an ad on a city bus that said people enrolled in healthcare.gov are saving as much as 75% on their healthcare costs.   Since my family’s health insurance premium nearly doubled when we were forced to switch to Obamacare and is about to go up nearly $100 per month beginning in January, I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw this dreadful lie strewn across the Read more […]

Insurance Company Bailing on Obamacare Exchanges

While, at one time, insurance companies were supporting Obamacare as a path to profits, the crony venture doesn’t seem to work anymore. The Hill reports, “Major insurer may leave ObamaCare.” One of the country’s largest health insurers warned Thursday that it may leave the ObamaCare exchanges within two years, delivering a shock announcement that could ripple through the marketplace. At a shareholder meeting Thursday, UnitedHealthcare cast doubt on its ability to carry plans on the healthcare Read more […]

Another Year of Obamacare “Sticker Shock”

Mark Horne wrote back in May that news reports of “sticker shock” should sound familiar. Why so familiar? Well, one of my headlines from December 24, 2013, mentions Obamacare sticker shock. That was referring to the deductibles. I also linked a late October post of mine that pointed to an NBC News story saying that Obamacare sticker shock was hitting those shopping for the new insurance. The next day Bob Allen posted about Obamacare sticker shock and included this video: [See also, “‘How Read more […]

Colorado Reaches for the Goal of Obamacare

The goal of Obamacare is reached by making healthcare less affordable. Economic ignorance, political superstition, and engineered desperation have reached a predictable endgame in Colorado. The Denver Post reports, “Colorado to vote on single-payer state health-care system.” Colorado voters will decide next year whether this state should be the first to pay for comprehensive health care for residents. Proponents of a single-payer state system gathered enough signatures to put ColoradoCare on Read more […]

Obama’s Healthy Communities, the Anti-thesis of America

Barack Obama made the following statement regarding the White House’s “Healthy Communities Challenge,” where 20 cities with low numbers of insured Americans compete against one another to see which community can sign the most people up for health insurance. “I’ll come visit the city that enrolls the highest percentage of folks who aren’t covered right now. That’s a promise…After all, this country’s at its best when we look out for each other.” “This is reality,” Read more […]

Failed Obamacare Co-Ops Add to the Cost of the “Affordable Care Act”

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, there’s more to be upset about in regard to Obamacare. After the Affordable Care Act was passed and the government started  setting up healthcare.gov, there were some areas where there weren’t many insurers, so Congress set up healthcare co-ops to insert some competition into those areas to make sure there were affordable options.  So we see that from the beginning, the idea of a government healthcare plan was bad for the economy.  It was so bad Read more […]

Obamacare is NOT Affordable

This one hits a little too close to home.  You see, beginning on January 1, 2016, the healthcare premium for my family on our healthexchange.gov policy will increase by $89 per month.  That is $1,068 per year.  I was feeling pretty mad about this increase when I received the letter revealing the news to me last week.  Then I read this article at zerohedge.com, and I felt like I had fared pretty well compared to the example shared there about Mr. Tetrault.  He received news that his premium would Read more […]

Woes of the Affordable Care Act Continue

Rate increases.  Penalty hikes.  Adjustment to the enrollment period.  More bureaucratic red tape.  That’s what’s coming from the affordable care act in 2016.  Foxnews.com reports: HealthCare.gov and state-run insurance markets are entering their third year, offering taxpayer-subsidized private coverage. That’s helped cut the share of Americans who are uninsured to about 9 percent, a historical low. Still, the many moving parts of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, don’t always Read more […]

Obamacare Misses the Mark

The headlines at the end of 2013 were full of words like, failed, not ready, glitches, crash, in reference to the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov.  There were also lots of criticisms of Obama’s failure to live up to his promises from when he first presented his healthcare plan.  He said that you would be able to keep your doctors; he said you would be able to keep your health plan if you liked it; and he said that most people would save money on their healthcare premiums Read more […]

John Kasich Twists Scripture to Defend Obamacare

John Kasich goes into full Obamacare zealot mode and abuses the Bible to use it as a public policy guide. Since John Kasich made his comments to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, I have to assume he believes he is appealing to Hispanics when he made his silly, false comments about the Bible and Obamacare. If the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is dominated by insurance executives who think they can get a profit boost from Obamacare, then maybe he was correctly appealing to his hearers. But if he Read more […]
