Obamacare website scraped clean of ‘If you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ lie

Do you remember when President Obama promised “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor ? We do! But clearly it’s a line the Obama administration wants us to forget… The Weekly Standard has the details: "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was President Barack Obama's signature catchphrase he used to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people. Now Obamacare's flagship website, healthcare.gov, no longer even addresses the issue. Ironically, the section in question was the first public (if indirect) admission by the Obama administration that the president's promise was less than a "guarantee." As THE ...

Calif. Rep. McClintock: U.S. national debt is ‘out of control’

U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock during a recent speaking engagement in El Dorado Hills, California underscored how severely in the hole our nation is from a financial perspective – something we’ve known for years but need Congress to act on right away. The Folsom Telegraph has the details: “Spending is out of control,” he said. The National Debt is at $20 trillion and growing, he said. In 10 years there won’t be funding for Medicare and Social Security will be bankrupt in 17 years if “we stay on the same trajectory,” McClintock said… McClintock said that “entitlement programs” cost $1 trillion a year. Examples of entitlement ...

The Washington Examiner has the story: The Justice Department's public integrity unit declined to pursue the probe given what it characterized as insufficient evidence, according to a CNN report Wednesday.

WaPo: Hillary Clinton earns four Pinocchios for ‘cherry-picking’ answers on emails

Hillary Clinton continues to have trouble keeping her answers straight when it comes to the private email server she used as Secretary of State. Despite the fact that Clinton violated federal law by sending classified information through the server, she and her campaign still deny any wrongdoing. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Clinton said, “Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.” That comment earned Clinton four Pinocchios from the Washington Post. The ...

Obama administration opens investigation into questionable Clinton Foundation donations

Hillary Clinton’s record as secretary of state under President Obama is a dodgy one. As New York Times columnist David Brooks said in recent commentary, what legacy did she leave behind when serving at the State Department? An Obama-administration investigation into questionable donations made to the Clinton Foundation when she was secretary of state shows her time there potentially had nothing to do with public service but was self-serving. The Washington Examiner has the details: [Obama administration] officials are investigating the Clinton Foundation for alleged fraud after dozens of lawmakers asked the tax agency to open an inquiry.
