    Administration Caught in New Obamacare Dilemma

    Remember sequestration? Those automatic budget cuts that went into effect when Congress failed to do real budgeting a couple of years ago? It’s hitting Obamacare now. Both laws have been around for awhile, but the Obama Administration hasn’t done anything to prepare for their collision. The cuts are hitting a … More

    3 Ways Obamacare Is Like HealthCare.gov

    The abject failure of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov, is proving quite the analogy for Obamacare itself—with good reason. CNN reported yesterday: “Experts say the major problems with the Obamacare website can’t reasonably be solved before the end of 2013, and the best fix would be to start over from scratch.” … More
