Townhall: Addicted to the Wrong Prescription

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 1, 2013

Addicts all? No, but as a "body politic" we sure seem addicted to government. It should come as no shock to realize that this addiction has hit the industry from which the metaphor arises. Take a look at Townhall.com this weekend. Regular readers may notice that the Common Sense column…

Best Obamacare Prescription

Relevance: 94%      Posted on: December 18, 2013

Is non-compliance the answer? I recently discussed how sheriffs in Colorado and elsewhere are refusing to cooperate with oppressive new laws, in their case farcical gun-control laws. Can we find similar inspiration in other fields? Yes. Consider the medical industry. Despite the Supreme Court decision okaying some of Obamacare’s key…

Mugged by Obamacare

Sometimes people rush to support the destruction of their freedom (and that of others), then become shocked to learn how destructive such destruction can be. Businessman and “left-leaning activist” Link Christensen, former advocate of Obamacare, once cheered this sweeping assault on what remains of our medical freedom because “it sounded…

Townhall: Obama Can’t Avoid Fabled Ovoid Crack-up

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: November 17, 2013

The biggest story of the week is turning into the biggest story of the month, the year, perhaps the decade. The much-heralded, much-despised "Obamacare" reform has had a great fall. What are the chances for the king's henchmen to put it back, intact, on the wall? Not high, not at…

Marketcare versus Obamacare

Relevance: 84%      Posted on: April 8, 2014

Hurray! Waiting for hours! Problems! Snags! As a sign-up deadline approached, Obamacare administrators heralded the long lines people endured to apply for a permitted insurance policy. The lines supposedly proved Obamacare’s invulnerable popularity. Had officials not been told about the new penalties for taxpayers who lack insurance? That millions have…

Losing with Obamacare

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: October 1, 2013

Democrats and their many shills in the major media decry Republican intransigence and “absolutism” on the “settled matter” (un)popularly known as Obamacare. Yesterday, rather than give an inch to the House Republicans they accuse of intransigence, Senate Democrats voted to uphold the Affordable Care Act, including their own special exemption…

Ending Obamacare

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: December 5, 2013

Getting rid of Obamacare has proved not so easy. The GOP House majority, won in late 2010, voted dozens of times to get rid of the program, but without Senate support to pile on (much less override a presidential veto), they could vote to repeal every day of the year…

Moolah for Media

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: April 13, 2011

Has Congress rescinded the Obamacare yet? No? Bad news if you favor free-market medicine. Nifty news if you’re a doddering corporate dinosaur of old media — like the Washington Post and CBS New and NBC News — with millions, or billions, in the kitty. And zero compunction about holding out…

Unions versus Obamacare

Relevance: 77%      Posted on: April 25, 2013

Former friends of Obamacare keep discovering that the law treats them as enemies. Three years after Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, Kinsey Robinson, president of United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers International, says that many provisions “were not fully conceived, resulting in unintended consequences . . .…

Resistance Is Not Futile

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: October 11, 2013

Who says signing up for Obamacare is all snarls and snafus? Thirty-year-old law student Brian Mahoney already had a high-deductible, low-premium insurance plan. But the day the Obamacare exchanges went online, he decided to check it out. For him, unlike thousands of others, signing up was easy. Great. Except that…
