    Papa John's founder John Schnatter caused a stir this week with his comment that the Obamacare law would cause a "hike in pizza prices." The most stirring thing about John Schnatter's statement is...that it's true. As a result of Obamacare employers such as John Schnatter will be forced to change their workforce strategy, which means increasing the costs of products offered to consumers as well as layoffs. In a study recently released by Mercer, analysts surveyed 1,203 employers, 60% of which were preparing for an increase in cost as a direct result of Obamacare. Of employers hit the hardest by...

    Debbie Downer, aka Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, was interviewed by John Roberts on Fox News Sunday. Roberts asked her about the Priorites USA ad that implies that Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer. In the ad Joe Soptic says “When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care, and my family lost their health care,” Soptic says in the minute-long spot. “And a short time after that, my wife became ill . . . she passed away in 22 days.” There you go. Mitt Romney killed her. Never mind that Romney left Bain in 1999. Never mind...

    Jewish World Review ^ | Aug 13, 2012 | Jonathan Tobin
    After Mitt Romney announced his choice for vice president, the consensus among Democrats is all they have to do to win in November is to mention one word: Medicare. ....First, those Jewish voters who are most vulnerable to Mediscare tactics were already going to vote for Obama. If you are the sort of person who truly believes the Republicans are going to throw Bubbe over the cliff, you probably were never sufficiently concerned about Obama's pressure on Israel and unwillingness to confront Iran to cross over to the GOP. The minority of American Jews who consider Israel's security to be...

    Medicare as we know it is thus not an option. The choice is between, on the one hand, a reform that leaves current seniors untouched for life and offers future seniors a guaranteed comprehensive benefit and more choices about how to get it or, on the other hand, cuts that affect both current and future beneficiaries and yet are still likely to fail to avert the programs fiscal collapse. Mitt Romney offers the first a plan for saving Medicare without increasing the risk to seniors. Barack Obama offers the second a plan for raiding Medicare and watching it...
  • Overflowing Banks: In Obama Ad, Actress Offers Tampon TMI, But Can't Say the Word 'Abortion'?

    08/12/2012 11:18:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | August 12, 2012 | Tim Graham
    Actress Elizabeth Banks made a campaign video for Obama-Biden 2012 – just barely. Almost the entire 75 seconds is a defense of Planned Parenthood and their “essential services,” which is the euphemism feminists use to describe America’s leading provider of abortions. In fact, Banks could not bring herself to even mention the word or the concept of abortions, except indirectly as “that little five percent” of controversial things PPFA does that judgmental Mitt Romney dislikes. This is quite shocking in its discretion, considering Banks unloads TMI and talks about her massive menstrual flow: Elizabeth Banks on Planned Parenthood, Women's Health,...

    This morning, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter appeared on Face The Nation, where she discussed Obamacares $700 billion cuts to Medicare. She touted those cuts as an achievement: Well, you know ask the wealthy to pay a little bit more. Cut waste from the government. Reform Medicare. More than $300 billion in savings from Medicare. On top of the savings weve already achieved. You know I heard Mitt Romney deride the $700 billion cuts in Medicare that the president achieved through health care reform. This is how Paul Ryans selection has already shifted the debate. Now the Obama campaign...

Now I know Romneys ad isnt as accurate as Id thought. Its much more accurate. The Times notes that one of the states proposing waivers from the 1996 welfare reforms work requirements is Nevadaindeed, Nevada was cited by the Obama Health and Human Services department when it quietly announced its plan to grant waivers on July 12 . ** Heres how the Times describes what Nevada wants...

    DENVER (Reuters) - President Barack Obama used a campaign stop in Colorado on Wednesday to call for an end to "senseless violence" across the country, appealing to Americans to focus on ways to stop it. Referring to the shootings at a movie theater in Colorado and at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in recent weeks, as well as last year's shooting of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona, Obama stopped short of calling for gun control but said concerted action was needed. "We've got to put an end to this kind of senseless violence, whether it's in Aurora,...

    ROME, Italy, August 7, 2012 ( – Pope Benedict XVI is warning that the United States is facing threats of “unprecedented gravity” to religious freedom. In a letter on behalf of the pope to Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone observed that “concerted efforts are being made to redefine and restrict the exercise of the right to religious freedom.” The comments come as the U.S. bishops campaign for religious liberty in the face of attacks such as President Obama’s HHS mandate, which requires employers to cover contraceptives, sterilizations, and...

The president was introduced by contraception activist Sandra Fluke, who became the center of a controversy earlier this summer, after she spoke out against Catholic colleges that did not cover contraceptives. Obama reminded the audience that because of his reforms, insurance plans were covering the full cost of contraceptives, which he said was crucial for womens health because it was used not only for family...
  • House Votes Down DC Abortion Bill (required 2/3 vote)

    National Journal ^ | 7/31/2012 | Meghan McCarthy
    The House voted down a bill restricting abortion access in the District of Columbia Tuesday, despite overwhelming Republican support for the legislation. The bill fell 220-154. It was voted on under suspension of the rules, a procedure that is typically reserved for legislation that is non-controversial. It also requires two-thirds of members voting in the affirmative -- in this case, 249 votes -- to pass. The bill stands no chance of getting through the Democratic-controlled Senate. Given that reality, putting the legislation up for a vote under suspension of the rules allows Republicans a chance to get Democrats on the...

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is saying the House WILL fund the government, in yet another vote needed to support the swayed-back of Obama administration spending. We are out of money again on September 30th. When Boehner was asked if ObamaCare will be defunded in the next Continuing Resolution, he coyly answered: "our goal would be to make sure the government is funded." Many are taking that answer as yes, we will continue to fund ObamaCare.We have no budget. The unconstitutional spending will continue through a Continuing Resolution (CR). See why there is plenty of precedent for not funding this...

Steve Miller of the CBS news affiliate WBBM has released a new report showing documents released in the botched abortion death of Tonya Reaves that alarmingly shows Planned Parenthood delayed summoning emergency care for the dying woman for five and a half hours after the abortion failed.

    Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.) said she was unaware that the preventive services regulation that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued under the Obamacare law requires health care plans to offer free sterilizations to girls as young as their teens. However, back in March, Schakowsky did acknowledge that the mandate offers sterilizations free of charge to college-age women, stressing that the HHS rules were designed to protect the health of women, women of all ages. The HHS regulation, which takes effect on Aug. 1, requires nearly all health care plans in the United States to provide, without

    One of the battles won by the conservatives who took over the North Carolina Legislature this session was stripping Planned Parenthood of its funding. But it is turning out to be a short-lived victory. The women's health organization has successfully applied for federal funds and will soon receive more than three times the amount Republican lawmakers had withheld. "We've weathered these increasing attacks on women's health care access the past couple of years," Paige Johnson, vice president of external and governmental affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, said Tuesday. "Now we're able to do more for our patients."...
