In a piece I wrote last October, I presented the argument that of all the GOP presidential candidates that primary voters had to choose from in the election, Donald Trump was the last person Republicans should have trusted to take on Obamacare. The nominee rarely talked about the issue during the… CONTINUE
In a complete reversal of what was promised on the campaign trail, the Trump administration is continuing to hold up a key element of Obamacare. Namely, the contentious contraception mandate. This requirement in the Affordable Care Act has caused many problems for religious groups who are morally opposed to providing birth control to their employees. As it stands right now on this issue, the Trump administration looks | Read More »

Georgia Congressman and orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Tom Price was confirmed as Secretary of Health and Human Services early Friday morning after a long second hearing and a great deal of fretful debate. Price is seen as pivotal in administration efforts to scrap, overhaul, or otherwise undo Obamacare. As Vox.com put it earlier today: “He’s the HHS secretary you’d pick if you were dead serious about | Read More »

President Obama sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine the morning after Donald Trump won the election. While Obama spent most of his time defending his failed legacy, he also made clear Michelle Obama won’t run for office in the future. Michelle will never run for office. She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the | Read More »

Obamacare was always going to fail, primarily because it wasn’t designed to succeed. Contrary to President Obama’s repeated promises over the years, the Affordable Care Act wasn’t devised to allow Americans to keep their old plan or their old doctor. It wasn’t crafted to bring down the cost of healthcare, or to lower… CONTINUE
It’s always a good day to show how Obamacare is falling woefully short of its stated goals. Moe did a great job yesterday tying the albatross around Hillary’s neck just a little tighter. The recent bad news doesn’t end there, though. A recent Kaiser Family Foundation analysis is not kind to the law. From the New York Times, of all places: Four of five workers who | Read More »

Soon after President Obama was elected to a second term in office in 2012, I wrote a column for this website entitled, “How Can Obama Respect an Electorate That Would Re-Elect Him?” The piece presented the argument that the majority of the country, at the time, chose not to factor the president’s job performance (during…
August is when things happen in politics. Typically, it’s a scandal, and it hurts sitting presidents and their parties. Right now, the crisis at the southern border looks to be the next big thing about to really bubble over (it’s bad now, but reports of terrible diseases among the camps could make this a lot worse). It’s a terrible situation because the Democrats were banking | Read More »
