Vote postponed…

leave a comment »

The vote on replacing ObamaCare has been  postponed,  probably until sometime on Friday.   I’m not happy with the replacement bill myself, and apparently a lot of Republican members of the House aren’t either.

SCOTUSCare…

with 3 comments

When I heard what the ruling was,  my first thought was that words no longer held any real meaning,  and that a law is  no longer  a law.   Justices Scalia,  Thomas and Alito hold a similar view according to  their scathing  dissent.

I will have more to say on this execrable decision after studying it over the weekend.

Reality bites…

This woman was a big fan of ObamaCare  until she  found out what “free” would cost her.

I do so enjoy hearing that reality has bitten another liberal dreamer in the butt.

Unhappy birthday…

leave a comment »

ObamaCare will be  five years  old on Monday,  but this bastard progeny of Congressional Democrats has little to celebrate.   The solitary benefits of this miserable piece of legislation are that it has shown that killing market competition drives prices up,  not down,  and that His Oneness is both economically incompetent and a bald-faced liar.

Of course,  I have long thought that the real purpose of ObamaCare was to drive physicians and insurance companies out of the marketplace, destroying the existing healthcare system,   and create a crisis via which the feds could foist a single-payer system on us, since that is what progressives and liberals have always wanted,  despite copious evidence that it provides lousy outcomes.   Various MSM outlets are applying copious amounts  of lipstick  to this pig,  but it is still a porker.

I live in hope that ObamaCare will be put to death long before its next birthday.

Tireless liars…

leave a comment »

The Obama Administration gleefully announced that 7.3 million people had signed up for health insurance on the state or federal exchanges.   The only trouble is  —  it wasn’t true,  because somehow at  least 380,000  dental plans were “erroneously” included in the total.

Sylvia Burwell, HHS Secretary, tweeted, “The mistake we made is unacceptable. I will be communicating that clearly throughout the dept.​”    Yeah,  I just bet she will.

Why do I smell a dead fish?   Because the previous HHS reports separated the dental enrollment from the medical.   The September report did not,  which explains why there was such a large increase in the number of enrollees claimed.

Yogi Love has an  inspired cartoon  combining ObamaCare and immigration.

I’ll be in an internet-free zone for  couple of days,  but check in Wednesday evening.
