Obamacare’s Architect Admitted in 2012 That Only State Exchanges Get Subsidies In a newly-discovered video from January of 2012, one of the chief architects of Obamacare says the Affordable Care Act provides no tax credits for citizens in states that do not set up their own exchanges.

Post-mortem on Senate amnesty vote

As is well-known by now, the Senate passed its amnesty bill last night. The total was 67 “Yea” votes, 27 “Nay” votes, and 6 non-votes.

As is well-known by now, the bill has always been fatally ...
