No, America won’t miss federal Obamacare subsidies

By the end of June, the Supreme Court will decide whether federal Obamacare subsidies are unconstitutional. Until then, the left will continue to run in circles trying to convince Americans that should the court side with Obamacare opponents, disaster and ruin are imminent. Here’s why you shouldn’t believe the hyperbole. New research from the American Action Forum (AAF) shows just how much the majority of states will be better off if federal subsidies are struck down. According to Forbes.com: AAF estimates that more than 11 million people would be liberated from having to purchase expensive ObamaCare insurance and freed from the onerous ...

Obama Admin: We ignored a federal judge because of a tech glitch

Remember when the Obama Administration ignored a federal judge and implemented executive amnesty, approving new amnesty applications even after they were told to stop? Yeah, we do too. It wasn’t that long ago. Yet in the ultimate my-dog-ate-my-homework style of excuse, administration officials are blaming their disobedience on a technology glitch. But it gets worse: according to the Washington Times, the Obama Administration is “now begging about 2,000 illegal immigrants to tear up their three-year work authorizations.” Yeah, like that’s going to happen. Apparently, when administration officials began processing older amnesty applic...

Scathing new report lists atrocities inside VA

New details have emerged about the total failure of the Department of Veterans Affairs to adequately provide care to our nation’s veterans. The details are part of a new, scathing 35-page report released by Jan R. Frye, deputy assistant secretary for acquisition and logistics. In the report, Frye describes an agency overrun with “gross mismanagement,” and that makes a “mockery” of federal rules. It even went as far as describe the culture at the VA as one of “lawlessness and chaos.” The Washington Post has more [1]: “Doors are swung wide open for fraud, waste and abuse,” he writes in the March memo, which was obtained by The ...

GOP Senators’ Pro-Congressional Excemption from Obamacare Crusade Draws Scorn – From America (Jenny Beth Martin op-ed in Breitbart.com)

Entitled, “Vitter’s Anti-Obamacare Crusade Draws Scorn – from GOP,” and reported by Manu Raju, the piece contains quote after quote from GOP Senators, each in turn explaining how Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) ’s “crusade” to end Congress’ special treatment is misdirected, or misguided, or political, or (my favorite!) “disingenuous.”... Continue here.

Obamacare is putting more people in the ER

Another day, another Obamacare myth, debunked. This time, the oh-so-popular selling point about Obamacare and emergency room visits is being thoroughly disproved by cold, hard numbers. Remember back when Obamacare proponents argued health reform would lower the number of ER visits? That it would solve the “free-rider” problem [1] of non-insured Americans showing up at ER’s to get free care? Yeah, that’s not exactly what’s happening. Emergency room visits are on the rise, reports the Wall Street Journal, and have been for the last couple years. And here’s the real kicker: it’s mostly because of Obamacare. Reports the WSJ [2]: ...
