For an administration seeking to win a skeptical public over to ObamaCare, the Justice Department could not have picked a more sympathetic foe for a Supreme Court fight than The Little Sisters of the Poor.
This… does not sound like Senator Jeanne Shaheen is unconcerned about her re-election prospects in New Hampshire. Maureen Mooney told the Granite Status the Affordable Care Act was “by far the dominant issue” in what she said was a 19-minute the survey. Mooney said she was asked to assess on a scale of zero to 100 not only Shaheen, but also Brown, Rubens, Sen. Kelly | Read More »
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been trying to play along with ObamaCare. Alas, his son drew the “Go Directly to Medicaid Jail” card, inexplicably diverted into that mournful welfare program by the supposedly exceptional Kentucky exchange system. Granted, “exceptional” status is a pretty low bar to clear when it comes to ObamaCare exchanges, but Kentucky was supposed to have one of the better ones… and | Read More »
Capitol Hill Republicans are not surprised by a new study that suggests more people will make emergency room visits under ObamaCare, not less as President Obama and other supporters of the law argue.

Furthermore; bad things pretty much deserve to happen to people who fail to institute rigorous financial controls while running large organizations. The PC way of describing this would be an adverse professional outcome. Simple folk like little, ol’ moi’ refer to this as karma.

Gay marriage initiatives drove Christian | Read More »
In the Thursday letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the group specifically criticizes the administration’s decision to allow insurance companies to sell policies that would otherwise be out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act for another year.
I admit, I was wondering how this administration was planning to implement one of the key tools of British/Canadian healthcare – to wit; delaying ‘non-life-threatening’ procedures for long enough for a certain percentage of patients to die from something else and another certain percentage to simply give up* – but I should have realized that you can always find a way to bureaucratically obfuscate.

So, what’s going on, here? Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday temporarily blocked the Obama administration from forcing some religious-affiliated groups to provide health insurance coverage of birth control or face penalties as part of the Affordable Care Act. Acting at the request of an order of nuns in Colorado, Justice Sotomayor issued the stay just hours before the requirement was to go into effect on | Read More »
