Rejoice! There’s No Stopping ObamaCare and the Coming Utopia

I’m so excited. I can hardly wait. It’s like Christmas in October, for Obamacare will be kicking in for real in about 2 to 3 weeks. For those of us that understand this law better than most, we are worried, to put it mildly. I say “understand it better” because no one, including its author(s) — whoever they are — know everything about it. Scary isn’t it; passing a law that controls one sixth of the economy and is still a mystery to all. Yet the low-to-no-information crowd is being hit with Read more […]

Obamacare Delay is a GOP Gift But Will the Party Open It?

On Tuesday the Obama regime announced the delay in implementing Obamacare until 2015. But only for businesses; individuals will still be responsible for complying with that pig’s breakfast of a law come 2014. The employer mandate requires businesses with more than 50 employees either to provide employees with “a minimum standard of affordable healthcare insurance” or face a stiff, financial penalty. On Tuesday, the administration, previously deaf to all objections, claimed that they were Read more […]

The Flake Fluke Compares Leukemia to Birth Control Pills

Sandra Fluke became the media darling for Liberals when she testified that it was necessary for the government (actually, taxpayers) to pay for her birth control pills. Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” and all hell broke loose. Advertisers were pressured to pull their ads from the Rush Limbaugh show. Fluke spoke at the Democratic National Convention pushing her birth control agenda at the taxpayers’ expense. She’s once again speaking out about her favorite pastime by arguing that if Read more […]

The Economy is Only Cover for Obama’s Real Campaign

Bill Clinton was famous for claiming, “It’s the economy, stupid.” At that time, the economy was far better than it is now, so one would expect this presidential race to be mainly a question about the economy. In many ways, Obama has made efforts to meet this expectation. But at the second debate with Romney, Obama showed that he was trying to win votes on a different basis. He continued to talk about the economy, but his rhetoric was obviously aimed at a different set of issues. When Read more […]

Liberals Complain that “Obamacare” Takes Away their Choices

“Obamacare” set up a Health Benefit Exchange Authority (HBX) Executive Board. The Chair of that board was sent a letter. It begins this way: As a group of small businesses and organizations representing small businesses based in the District of Columbia, we write to express our collective concerns about proposals under consideration that we believe will compound the uncertainties we face under federal health care reform. Those of us who may have had doubts about the health reform law were comforted Read more […]

Entitlement Mentality is a “Sign of Progress”?

So much nonsense, so little time. Soon after publishing yesterday’s article about government creating economic markets, I read a similar one by Jonathan Cohn extolling the virtues of the entitlement mindset prevalent among so many Americans. Mitt Romney has gotten into political hot water over his comments about the 47% of Americans who don’t pay income taxes, but now Cohn wants to come along and inform us that this statistic is, in fact, a sign of good ole American progress. If you think Read more […]

Papa John Schnatter vs. Obamacare

John Schnatter, founder and CEO of Papa John’s Pizza, announced recently that the price of his pizzas will increase if Obamacare is not repealed. Schnatter said: “We’re not supportive of Obamacare, like most businesses in our industry. If Obamacare is in fact not repealed, we will find tactics to shallow out any Obamacare costs and core strategies to pass that cost onto consumers in order to protect our shareholders best interests.” Papa John’s will not be the only one. What few Obamacare Read more […]

Repealing ObamaCare May Not Be Enough

I used to work for a hospital in the billing and collecting department. We used to hate dealing with Medicaid cases because they didn’t pay much. Of course, that’s assuming that the Medicaid office actually accepted the claim in the first place. It really depended on the state though. Some states like Ohio actually paid fairly well, so we didn’t mind them as much. Other states paid a per diem that barely covered the costs. And in other states, we didn’t even accept Medicaid patients, because those Read more […]
