Speaker Ryan: Anthem Obamacare withdrawal in Wisc., Indiana forcing people to ‘scramble’ to find new plans, doctors

Anthem announced yesterday that it would be leaving the Obamacare exchanges for Indiana and Wisconsin in 2018.

The Washington Examiner has the full story: Anthem said in a statement it made its decision because "the individual market remains volatile." It blamed uncertainty ahead over whether it would receive insurance payments from the federal government, as well as whether the government would enforce the Obamacare law that requires people to have ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: American “comedians” stooping to ‘new depths of incivility’

The political rhetoric that permeates American late-night “comedy” has reached a new low, as liberal pundits attack their political opponents using the same – and worse! – vulgarities those same liberal pundits use as ammunition to condemn their opponents. Basically, if you’re a liberal attacking conservatives, anything goes in today’s society; that needs to change, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in her latest opinion piece. The Washington Times has the commentary: Concurrent with the decline of creativity among elite artists has been the dramatic decline of civility – and in its place, crassness and crudeness ...

Hannity Matters to America – tell that to Media Matters

The liberal media is losing its mind over President Donald J. Trump’s upset victory over their darling candidate Hillary Clinton – even though Secretary Clinton failed our men in Benghazi, was criminally negligent in handling classified emails and, among other things, failed to disclose sizable Clinton Foundation donations even after promising President Obama she would. The president’s agenda is at odds with their own and THEY. JUST. CAN’T. DEAL. So, they’re pulling out every trick in the book – Media Matters for America specifically – even going so far as to put conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity in their cross hairs by publis...

The former IRS officials at the center of the scandal that targeted Americans for their political beliefs are arguing, ahead of a Friday hearing in a federal class-action lawsuit brought against the agency, that their testimony be sealed out of fear their lives could be threatened if the testimony is made public – something the women should have considered before deciding to unfairly target Americans, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in a recent column. The Hill has the commentary: Let me say this clearly — threats like that are not acceptable. Law enforcement authorities should do all they can to keep Lerner and Paz safe, ...

Washington Examiner: House ‘narrowly’ passes legislation that would partially repeal Obamacare

House Republicans barely mustered enough votes to pass legislation that, if signed into law, would only partially repeal Obamacare but supporters of the bill assure skeptics it’s the first step toward fully repealing former President Obama’s signature health-insurance law. The Washington Examiner has the details: The House voted 217-213 to pass the amended American Health Care Act, after deciding late Wednesday that the votes were there thanks to last-minute changes that appealed to centrists. When the vote was called, 20 Republicans voted against it, just under the threshold of 22 GOP lawmakers that could vote against it and still have it ...
