    The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage.

    The Governor pulls no punches in her latest piece: President Obama flew in to Boston today to deliver another “ShamWow”-style infomercial for Obamacare, and it went about as well as his entourage’s snarled traffic debacle in Beantown. As millions of Americans are being kicked off their desired insurance plans and seeing their premiums skyrocket, the President had a lot of ‘splaining to do today. For starters we anticipated a Presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, “If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.” Make no mistake, he knew he was...

Matthew 10:15 After Michelle Obozo spends over a billion on a website for their signature legislation, it only handled six people? Did they outsource the technology to Cuba? How many times do the socialists of the world have to prove that Marxism is a failed economic and political philosophy which is built on incompetence, corruption and strong arm tactics like we are witnessing. This regime will be remembered in the future of one simple line, “If you...

    It’s been a disastrous couple of weeks for President Barack Obama. His signature legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is a slow-motion train wreck. His poll numbers have tanked. Now, things have gotten so bad for Obama that former president Jimmy Carter has called President Obama incompetent in the family-friendly pages of Parade magazine. “He’s done the best he could under the circumstances,” Carter said of Obama in an interviewed published on Thursday. “His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.” Carter presided over what was, until the current recession, the...

    Democratic leaders in Congress echoed President Obama’s promise in 2009 that people would not lose their healthcare plans if they liked them. Republicans have pounced on Obama’s repeated pitch for the healthcare overhaul, especially after plans across the country recently mailed out policy cancellation notices. The president wasn’t the only one making big promises on ObamaCare. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who rallied all members of his caucus to support the landmark law, promised the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would let people keep the insurance plans they had at the time. Reid touted that aspect of the law among...

Senator XXXXX, Please vote against cloture on the nomination of radical union lawyer Richard Griffin to be the next General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board. Over the summer a handful of Republican Senators joined every Democrat to let Barack Obama pack the labor board with union militants literally and publicly chosen by AFL-CIO czar Richard Trumka. The ONLY thing those Republicans got out of the "deal" was that Obama would not re-nominate Richard Griffin and Sharon Block to be...

    Scandal: In recent days, President Obama has claimed ignorance about spying on allies and the ObamaCare meltdown. How can it be this president is always the last to know whenever anything goes wrong in his administration? Even though the NSA tapped the phones of German Chancellor Angela Merkel some time ago, President Obama claims he didn't know anything about it until after an internal review he ordered earlier this year. Why should he? After all, "the president doesn't sign off on this stuff," one official said. If Obama's ignorance of this seems dubious, consider that a German weekly reports that...

    I often try to find news stories that are not being reported on, trying to give my readers something to read that is different from other blogs. I don't necessarily want to write about the same subject matter I see on the rest of the Internet. That being said, that we now know President Obama has been lying all along about Obamacare is too important to not write about. Many of us have tried to point this out before, but the mainstream media refused to acknowledge it, much less report on it. The Obama administration has continued the farce, sticking...

    If Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) were to become Speaker again, she would work to pass a sweeping bill that would significantly expand federal childcare benefits. [WATCH VIDEO] In a sit-down interview in her office in the Capitol, the House minority leader stopped short of predicting that Democrats would regain the lower chamber in the 2014 midterm elections, but she had no hesitation in saying what she would use a majority for. Pelosi and other Democrats have emerged from the shutdown fight with new confidence, and she vowed her party would “of course” pick up seats next year. It is...

The story is listed on Google – but it links to a dead ink. Weird.

    Remember how Barbie and Obama agreed that math is hard? Now we know why President Barack Obama couldn't recall the national debt during a chat with David Letterman a few weeks back. He's got something in common with a certain iconic doll - Math is hard. Obama appeared on "The Tonight Show" last night, and he got into a soft and fuzzy exchange with host Jay Leno about his daughter's homework. "The math stuff I was fine with up until about seventh grade ... Malia's now a freshman in high school, and I'm pretty lost," Obama confessed to Leno. [youtube][/youtube]...

    In finding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) constitutional, 5 justices of the Supreme Court literally ignored the statutory language of the law and the wishes of Congress. In fact, Chief Justice Roberts rewrote portions of the Act in order to bring its substance into line with his own politically motivated preferences. In May, the IRS also ignored the will of Congress as expressed in the ACA. The law specifically states that subsidies and tax credits provided to certain ObamaCare enrollees may be awarded ONLY by “a governmental agency or nonprofit entity [ObamaCare exchange] that is established by a state.”(My emphasis)...

During a visit to a community health center in Austin, Sebelius conceded that there wasn't enough testing done on the website, but added that her department had little flexibility to postpone the launch against the backdrop of Washington's unforgiving politics.

    U.S. officials are alerting some foreign intelligence services that documents detailing their secret cooperation with the United States have been obtained by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, according to government officials. Snowden, U.S. officials said, took tens of thousands of military intelligence documents, some of which contain sensitive material about collection programs against adversaries such as Iran, Russia and China. Some refer to operations that in some cases involve countries not publicly allied with the United States. The process of informing officials in capital after capital about the risk of disclosure is delicate. In some cases, one part...

    Last night, Powers managed to work her way through the Washington DC exchange to find that she couldn’t keep the plan she liked, either. In order to keep the same deductible in place, her monthly premiums will almost double, from $160 to $300: That is an additional $1,680 a year, which doesn’t actually get her better coverage, and which Powers will have to pay out regardless of how much she accesses the health-care system. As a younger and healthier consumer, Powers shouldn’t be paying more; she should be paying less in a properly-managed risk pool. Thanks to the mandates of...
