Obamacare: “It’s Alive!”

“It’s alive! It’s alive!” was the response to the first movements of Frankenstein’s monster. Perhaps that description is applicable to ObamaCare, but just barely. In the sense that it itself is a monster, maybe. This quote of the day comes from Jimmy Fallon via the Daily Caller: “The White House says it has surpassed its goal for people enrolled in Obamacare. [...]

The Edsel Lives

ObamaCare is government’s answer to Ford Motor Company’s Edsel. For those too young to know, the Edsel (pictured to the right) is considered by many to be the worst business decision ever. This determination was not limited to the automobile industry but to any US industry. Truth be told, it probably wasn’t that bad a decision, at least ex ante. The [...]

ObamaCare Begins To Destroy American’s Health

The New Year dawns with the implementation of ObamaCare. The brain-dead supporters of this program and this president must be having a reaction like the following: What is this? I was promised free health care. Nobody told me that free might meant non-existent. I got better service when I didn’t have insurance and that was free. Here are a couple [...]

Learning The Hard Way

The dullards among us may see through our Sham-in-Chief. Nothing he has done has benefited them. Indeed, that may be said for the country at large. Thomas Sowell expressed it well, as he has so many times before: Those who have still not yet seen through Barack Obama will have many more opportunities to do so during the coming year, [...]

ObamaCare And An Obama Supporter

Warren Buffet was a strong Obama supporter when he ran for president. It is less clear how Buffet felt about Obama when he ran for his second term. He appears to still be an Obama supporter, but in a much less visible way. While not publicized, Buffet doesn’t seem to agree with ObamaCare, at least not for the employees of [...]

ObamaCare As Alice In Wonderland

One need not fall down a rabbit hole to enter an Alice In Wonderland world. A flight into Dulles International provides an alternate route. Lewis Carroll’s 1865 novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, may not have anticipated modern-day Washington and ObamaCare, but it provides a pretty good framework for it. Mr. Carroll could not have dreamed of the progress and technological innovation that [...]

Ben Stein Has Figured Obama Out

Reader Bob S. sent this piece in by Ben Stein: WE’VE FIGURED HIM OUT! By Ben Stein Why was President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed? Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths: The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in [...]

ObamaCare: The Dumbest Political Move Ever?

ObamaCare may be viewed by historians as the dumbest political move ever. As the program rolls out, the sham of the deed becomes apparent even to the dullards who supported Obama and the program. The Wall Street Journal observed: … the public is learning that ObamaCare’s insurance costs more in return for worse coverage. Mr. Obama and his liberal allies call the old [...]

The Website Will Never Be Fixed

No one knows whether ObamaCare is going to survive or not. It deserves to perish because it is going to worsen almost everyone’s condition in terms of insurance and cause healthcare itself to deteriorate. There are new shoes to drop in terms of the adverse effects. Astute observers already know this, although most people are going to be unpleasantly surprised. [...]

On The Road To Single-Payer Health Care

Is Obamacare really dying or will the liberal left-wing focus on another strategy? Realize the left does not easily give up on its desire for an all-seeing, all-knowing socialistic government. It has taken over seventy years for the implementation of their first objective of job security, at least for government employees, to be accomplished. And don’t expect the home ownership nightmare to die gracefully. It will resurrect itself when it’s safe again for the liberals to demonize the banking and lending institutions.

QOTD — Common Sense and ObamaCare

If the government has to force employers to provide a benefit to their employees, it means it’s unprofitable; otherwise the employers would have already done it as part of their compensation package in order to attract quality workers. So if this costly, unprofitable employer mandate only applies to firms with 50 or more employees, and even then only applies to [...]

Death Panel Forming On ObamaCare

It looks like public opinion is acting as a Death Panel judging ObamaCare. The verdict seems to be that it doesn’t deserve to live.
