    With just 191 days until the Nov. 4 midterm elections, nervous Democrats are scrambling to find an effective answer to the Obamacare question they may fear the most: "Where is the $2,500 in health insurance savings President Obama and Democrats promised me?"

    The Obama administration will grant extra time to Americans who say they are unable to enroll in health care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline, in a decision that swiftly drew Republican ridicule. All consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will now have until about mid-April to ask for an extension. "We are experiencing a surge in demand and are making sure that we will be ready to help consumers who may be in line by the deadline to complete enrollment -- either online...
  • 'Liberty Tax': White House, Media Attack After Drudge Pays Obamacare Opt-Out Penalty

    A White House aide set off a stampede of liberal media criticism for Internet news pioneer Matt Drudge over Obamacare – but his critics don't seem to understand how small businesses pay taxes. The brouhaha started when Drudge tweeted, “Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX.” Jesse Lee, the Director of Progressive Media at Barack Obama's White House, responded that that was a “Flat lie, no fee for previous year,” adding, “Scary how much influence he once had.” Lee’s response to Drudge set off a firestorm in the liberal media, with many...
  • No, House Republicans haven't voted 50 times to repeal Obamacare

    It has become a truism that House Republicans have voted dozens and dozens of times -- at least 50 in all -- to repeal Obamacare. They have been obsessed with repealing the Affordable Care Act, President Obama told a Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington last month. You know what they say: 50th time is the charm. Maybe when you hit your 50th repeal vote, you will win a prize. Maybe if you buy 50 repeal votes, you get one free. We get it.

    Since being signed into law by President Obama in 2010, the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has been stripped, changed and full of devastating consequences for the American economy and American families. It's clear by now that the White House and Democrats who voted for Obamacare, lied to millions of Americans when they said, "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period." We not only saw President Obama admit during a healthcare summit in early 2010 (before signing Obamacare) "that between eight million and nine million people may very well lose the coverage that they...

    On the Obamacare health insurance exchanges, being married can cost you a lot. Get divorced (or avoid getting married, if you live together), and you save $7,230 per year if you are a fairly typical 40-year-old couple with kids (example: the husband working full-time, and the wife working part time, with the husband making $70,000, and the wife making $23,000). If you are a 60-year-old couple with equal incomes and no kids, and you make $62,041 a year, you save $11,028 a year by getting divorced or remaining unmarried. These are the amounts of money you will lose if you...

Pew produced some very negative data for the president late last week, and now Quinnipiac confirms the undeniable downward trend. One upper-cut to the jaw after the next: (1) President Obama's overall job approval rating is deep underwater at (39/54). It's not pretty across the board: Independents (30/63), women (40/51), Hispanics (41/47), and young voters (36/54). The telling right track vs. wrong track number stands at a miserable (21/78).

PolyOne Designed Structures and Solutions will close a Warsaw plastics factory next year, putting 110 people out of work. As Warsaw’s mayor, Thallemer knew the Kosciusko County operation at 3454 N. Detroit St. could be affected by the Cleveland-based company’s announced consolidation. The plan eliminates 250 jobs and closes six factories. But the document he received this week from the company extinguished his last hope of escaping the cuts. “I’d like to think we’d be able to absorb...

    With President Obama’s approval rating sinking below 40 percent, it has become clear that a majority of Americans have concluded that he did indeed lie about his signature health care legislation allowing individuals to “keep their insurance plans” if they desired. While the president deserves much of the scorn being heaped upon him for having misled the public about Obamacare, another group within Washington equally deserves to be held accountable for the millions of Americans currently losing their existing health care coverage; namely, Senate Democrats. Sen. Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana recently took to the floor of the Senate to...

    The fight over how to define the new health law’s success is coming down to one question: Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they’ve submited a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills. When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have...

Many more cancellation notices are imminent. But yesterday, the Wall Street Journal obtained information regarding the number of people who have signed up for new private health coverage under Obamacare: “40,000 to 50,000” for the federal exchange, and 49,000 for 12 of the 14 state-based exchanges.

    The wave of health insurance policy cancellations reminds me of the gas lines in 1979. Once a week I took a gas break instead of a lunch break so I could fill up my car with gas. Lines were shorter in the middle of the day than in the morning or evening. Then Ronald Reagan was elected president. He took away President Carter's price and regional allocation controls on gasoline, and the lines vanished overnight. That's what we need to do with health insurance-take off the federal controls on health insurance. Tell the insurance companies they can issue any policies...

The program’s target for October alone was 494,620. And that figure represents what they thought would be a “slow” month, as the public gradually got up to speed on the need to sign up before December 15th. If you’re looking at the bigger picture, they’re aiming for seven million new enrollees by March 31 of next year. They’re 1.4 percent of the way there with almost 25 percent of...

In many states, Medicaid enrollment through the Healthcare.gov portal is dwarfing the number of “private” insurance plan purchases [1].While this development represents a major financial threat to the survival of Obamacare, new regulations established by Obamacare to cover Medicaid enrollment have created a major threat to the United States’ ability to administrate that far larger benefit program.Following is a summary of the problem: Non-citizens are eligible for Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health...

    Some numbers have come been released over the number of people who have signed up for ObamaCare through the federal website and it isn't pretty. It appears that less than 50,000 people have signed up, which is only ten percent of what big government liberals wanted and need. If millions of young people don't sign up for health insurance they don't need, then the entire ponzi scheme falls apart. However, the Obama administration's tenuous relationship with the truth continues as the 50,000 number cited isn't actually correct. It appears that the government is counting every person who had an insurance...

    The state’s $69 million Obama­care website is “overbudget,” has missed deadlines and now is bringing in eleventh-hour engineering assistance from Oracle, in the face of looming cutoff dates that could force some to go without health insurance, the Herald has learned. The fix comes after the Herald reported Saturday a mere 1 percent of applicants facing canceled health plans had managed to enroll in Obamacare plans through the state’s website, with just weeks before many plans 
expire Dec. 31. Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday brushed off any concerns about the system.

    DALLAS, TX, November 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Taxpayer-funded employees tasked with enrolling Americans in ObamaCare's insurance plans have been caught on video telling their clients to lie. Some of those navigators are also working with an overtly political organization whose goal is to turn Texas into a Democratic-leaning state, according to investigative reporter James O'Keefe. The footage has caused one U.S. Senator to demand the navigator program be terminated. James O'Keefe of Project Veritas, who has a history of pro-life exposés, sent an undercover reporter to the National Urban League in Dallas to enroll in a health insurance plan offered...

    Anthem Blue Cross of California has agreed to a two-month extension of about 104,000 individual policies after failing to give the required 90-day cancellation notice, state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced Tuesday. The policies had been set to expire on Dec. 31 but will be extended until Feb. 28 for those who choose to re-enroll. Notices informing customers of the extension will be sent out this week, Anthem said. Jones said the company notified the Department of Insurance that it failed to give enough notice because of a computer glitch and voluntarily offered to extend the policies. Anthem spokesman Darrel...

    Matt Lauer should have known better than to quote the Democrat Party line to Sarah Palin. From his “only 5% are losing their current policies” to “Republicans have never come up with a plan,” Lauer looks like a perturbed 3rd grader hoping to prove his teacher wrong. It’s a video worth watching as liberals never come out looking so hot in...

    A blunt critique from Bill Clinton on President Obama's handling of the rocky ObamaCare rollout is prompting the White House to pledge another set of health law fixes -- though in doing so, it could inadvertently build the case for those calling for a delay in the law's implementation. Aside from scrambling to fix the broken HealthCare.gov website, the administration is now trying to deal with the millions of Americans who have received cancellation notices. On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the president's team is trying to figure out a way to offer relief to some of...

    Remember Tony Trenkle?   “[CMS Chief Information Officer]Tony [Trenkle] made a decision that he was going to move to the private sector and that is what our COO announced yesterday,” said a spokesman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who refused to comment whether Trenkle had been pushed out due to frustrations over the agency’s online woes. Why was he pushed out? Initially he seemed to be a Scapegoat. But Administrations usually publicize Scapegoats -- after all, the whole point is to claim all the problems were due to the Scapegoat, and then ritually slaughter him to expiate one's...
