Labor Unions in Panic over Obamacare

Labor Unions in Panic over Obamacare

The union bosses are not happy about Obamacare. Last week, the leaders of three major U.S. unions, including James P. Hoffa of the Teamsters, sent a scathing open letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leaders in Congress.  They warn that if the law does not change, Obamacare will “destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.”

Obama’s Dangerous Delay

Obama’s Dangerous Delay

Obama’s delay is dangerous to freedom. On July 2, at 6:00 p.m. just before the Independence Day holiday, the administration quietly stated in a blog post (of all things!) that the Obamacare employer mandate would be delayed by one year, until January 1, 2015. The U.S. Treasury put out a separate blog post. There was no press release. This understated process was meant to make the delay look like “no big deal.” But it is.

The Blitz Begins

The Blitz Begins

The Obamacare blitz has begun. There are just 96 days until Obamacare kicks off on October 1 with open enrollment into Obamacare through the government’s health exchanges. The exchanges are the heart and soul of Obamacare. If the exchanges fail, Obamacare fails:

Who is More Heartless?

Who is More Heartless?

Do you have a heart or a brain? You’ve heard it said, “If you’re not a liberal at twenty you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative at forty you have no brain.” Apparently a version of this statement was first uttered by a mid-nineteenth century French historian and statesman, François Guizot. I thought Winston Churchill said it, but even the Churchill Centre says there’s no record of such.

The Obamacare Surveillance System

The Obamacare Surveillance System

There is an Obamacare surveillance system. Surveillance is national news today...except in health care. That needs to change. The National Security Administration (NSA) is not the only agency spying on citizens without their consent or knowledge. And the problem is going to get worse under the federal reform law, empowering the IRS in ways we've never seen before.

Deadly Weaknesses of Obamacare

Deadly Weaknesses of Obamacare

Imagine the end of Obamacare. It is more than possible. The law has an Achilles’ heel of mammoth proportions. I looked up the meaning of the term “Achilles’ heel”: “An Achilles’ heel is a deadly weakness in spite of overall strength, that can actually or potentially lead to downfall.” Let those words, “deadly weakness” and “lead to downfall” settle with hope over your mental synapses.

Three Falsehoods Refuted

Three Falsehoods Refuted

The health care reform debate is littered with false statements. Truth is hard to come by. However, several recent news stories counter a whole series of mistruths and half-truths. Here are just three falsehoods -- there are many more, including one countered in our news release below -- and the new facts and findings that counter the false claims:

Employers Find Huge ACA Loophole

Employers Find Huge ACA Loophole

Angelina Jolie’s Genetically Modified Body

How do you feel about Angelina Jolie's decision? On Monday, The New York Times published her opinion piece called, "My Medical Choice." Angelina, the popular 37-year-old actress, chose to have a double mastectomy. After three months of medical procedures to remove her breasts and perform reconstructive surgery with implants, she wrote about her prophylactic decision.

Inside Scoop on Obamacare Exchanges

Inside Scoop on Obamacare Exchanges

Will Obamacare Exchanges be ready? We hope not. The headline from an Exchange industry news article says, "Will HHS Stall Start of Federal Exchanges? Observers Say 'Yes,' 'No,' 'Wait Till Oct. 1" (5/2/13). There are 33 states that have refused to build (fund) a "state exchange," forcing the feds to build a "federal exchange" for them. That said, every state exchange is a federal exchange under federal control.
