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 ...

News Briefing for Thursday, March 26

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus…” ht...

Montana Tea Party Groups Convene in Helena

Tea party groups from across Big Sky Country gathered in the state’s capitol city last weekend to talk about strategy and upcoming opportunities for the movement. And with newly minted GOP majorities in both chambers of the legislature, Montana conservatives see abounding opportunities. Close to a dozen different tea party groups from across the (huge) state attended, as did TPP’s Legislative Coordinator Bill Pascoe and Communications Director Kevin Broughton. Attendees got a quick tutorial on social media on Friday, then got a chance to see what their colleagues across Montana were doing to further the cause. Investigative reporter Ron Catlett ...

News Briefing for Wednesday, March 25

HEALTHCARE: How many will have to pay back Obamacare subsidies? “More Americans will owe the government money for their Obamacare subsidy than won't, says a new analysis. A big upcoming Tax Day question is how many Americans with government-subsidized health insurance will find that they collected more in subsidies than they're qualified for and have to pay some of it back — and how many will find themselves in the opposite position, with the government owing them money. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that half of all subsidy-eligible households will be in the first boat, owing the government an average payment of $794. That situat...
