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 […]

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 […]

What Happens to Obamacare if a Republican Wins in 2016?

What happens to Obamacare if the Republicans win the White House?  Sadly, the answer is, not much. CNBC reports: For more than half a decade, the GOP has blasted President Barack Obama’s signature health-care reform legislation, and the law remains deeply unpopular with the party’s base.  But experts say a Republican president would have to clear a very high bar in getting Congress to kill the Affordable Care Act outright, even though GOP candidates have called for doing that. Reforming Read more […]

The Gold-Plated Obamacare Plan You Don’t Get

With so much going on around the world and here at home, it’s easy to overlook a minor story about the president having a sore throat, but President Obama’s doctor visit is illustrative of some of the problems with the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare was sold to the American public as a panacea for all the nation’s health care difficulties. It was going to enroll millions of people who allegedly couldn’t afford health insurance, it was going to make care more affordable, it was going to guarantee Read more […]

Delusional Obama Loses It Over Obamacare Failures

Fresh off another Obamacare website crash, President Obama on Tuesday jumped on his critics’ cases and took the country on a tour through Fantasyland. During his rant, Obama essentially blamed all the problems with Obamacare on his critics, who in his delusional thinking want to keep people from getting health care. (And here you thought we were all just one-dimensional racists.) “Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance?” Obama demanded. “Why are they so mad about Read more […]

Freedom of Religion Tossed in the Obamacare Grinder

Freedom of religion got thrown into the arena of the Supreme Court on Monday, now it’s just a matter of time before we know if it survives. The cases of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties against the Obamacare contraception and abortifacient mandate were heard by a court divided predictably by political ideology. Obama cheerleaders Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan earned their keep by grilling the lawyers for the two family-owned businesses. Both of them harped on the possibility that Read more […]

At Last Minute, Justice Blocks Obamacare Contraception Mandate

Amid all the bad news kicking off the new year, there’s at least one bit of welcome change. Out of the blue on Tuesday, President Obama’s appointee to the Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor blocked the Administration from forcing some religion-affiliated groups to provide employees with health insurance that includes coverage for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs. The decision comes at the request of the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of Colorado nuns, and applies to other Roman Read more […]

Wish They All Could Be California Doctors

Who’da thunk that deep-blue California, home of the Pet Rock, would be the scene of a full-blown rebellion against Obamacare? According to the head of the California Medical Association, an estimated 70 percent of the state’s doctors are refusing to participate in the Obamacare insurance exchange. CMA represents nearly two-fifths of the doctors in the state. The major complaint is that, despite Obamacare’s jacking up of insurance rates for customers, doctors are being paid less and less. San Read more […]

Obama Voters Still Don’t Get It — and They Don’t Want It

For every scrap of news that might indicate America is finally waking up to the reality of the charlatan in the Oval Office, it seems there’s something else that indicates the stupidity of the Left still has a strong hold on our country. The Obamacare “roll-out” has been a thorough failure if ever there was one, and even the most ardent supporters of Obama at MSNBC, CNN and other outlets are hard-pressed to come up with excuses. Obama’s poll numbers are falling, with Americans’ disapproval Read more […]
