Obamacare’s many broken promises

Remember all those times the Left told us we needed the Affordable Care Act so it would reduce health care costs in America? Yeah, we do too. True to form, their predictions didn’t exactly pan out. A new study shows [1] that average insurance policy rates skyrocketed, in some cases by as much as 78 percent after Obamacare was implemented. In the sought-after 23 year-old demographic, rates rose the most on average. Men in that age group saw increases of 78.2 percent, while women got a 44.9 percent increase. It’s not exactly surprising. While the Left would rather we all ignore it when rates go up and policies get cancelled, there’s no ...

Tea Party Offers to Fix What Obamacare has Broken

Obamacare Broke It, Americans Are Paying For It, and the Tea Party Has a Plan to Fix It As millions of American families fear losing their health care coverage, or facing radically higher costs, the Tea Party Patriots offers a plan to fix what Obamacare has broken with real health care reform. “The President promised to fix what was ailing America’s health care system,” said Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots.  “Now, Obamacare is breaking our health care system and breaking the bank accounts of struggling American families.” “Obamacare broke it, Americans are paying for it, and the Tea Party has a ...

Broken Promises, Damaged Families – The Legacy of Obamacare

Across the country, pundits and politicians are talking about the political implications of the unaffordability of Obamacare and its disastrous rollout. Mary Katharine Ham has a round-up some of the crushing broken promises to the American people. They include: Rather than more competition, functional oligarchies are appearing in many rural areas of the country. This is not lowering costs for consumers. Insurance plans are being cancelled by CareFirst, including “more than 40 percent of the 177,000 individuals covered by CareFirst in” Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. And from Guy Benson at Townhall.com comes this Forbes analysis ...

Another Broken Promise: Keeping your Health Insurance

Over the last four-plus years, President Obama has often repeated that any American who likes his or her insurance plan can keep it. It was a major part of the Obamacare sales pitch to the nation: Many Americans knew this claim was suspect, and that it might not end up being true. Via NBC News, however, we now know the Administration realized this wasn’t the case over three years ago: Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since ...

Broken News: CNN Bias Blatant on Capitol Hill

Erin McPike made a name for herself in 2012 as a political reporter for Real Clear Politics before leaving for CNN. In two press events last week, she made a new name for herself – an agenda-pushing reporter. Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle has the story on the first event: At a Conversations with Conservatives press event on Capitol Hill on Thursday, CNN reporter Erin McPike attempted to blame congressional Republicans for a potential government shutdown, even though the power to do that would rest solely with President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Boyle’s story is worth reading in full, as he outlined the three very ...

Chicken Little and the Government Shutdown

Since the fight over Obamacare defunding began, the news media and politicians have focused on the political damage the GOP took in 1995. For all the claims of how awful a temporary shutdown would be, it’s interesting that news media has ignored the more than dozen shutdowns that took place in the 70s and 80s, and how life was just fine. In April 2011, it appeared that Congress might shut down the government. NBC’s Brian Williams reported at the time that such a shutdown would be the 18th one since 1976. Here is the full list: Year        Beginning date       Length in Days            Ending date (at midnight) 1976 ...

This Virginia teen just won gold in Rio – watch her gush about her right to bear arms

The quintessential girl-next-door, 19-year-old Olympic gold medalist in the 10-meter air-rifle competition Ginny Thrasher over the weekend made her television debut to express the thrill of winning an Olympic championship Saturday. “After I finished shooting, I didn’t have a lot going through my mind other than overwhelming happiness. I was swarmed by my friends and family and a lot of media. After I took the lead in the final, I knew that I was in contention for a medal but, for me, I had to refocus on what would get me to that outcome,” says Thrasher. Her enthusiasm for the sport is apparent, as she wears a smile the duration of the ...

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 ...
