    Sick of Obamacare? We've Got Something Different

    The salesman in chief is back on the road. President Obama will be spending the month of December once again explaining Obamacare to the American people. Because if he explains it one more time, maybe people will like it? We expect these holiday greetings will go over about as well … More

    Pro-Obamacare Group Gets $1 Million to Pitch "Success" Stories to Media

    Obamacare horror stories have outnumbered successes, even in the liberal mainstream media. But that may soon change now that a pro-Obamacare group is getting $1 million to provide journalists more favorable stories about the President’s health care law. The liberal organization Families USA received a $1 million grant from the … More

    Will Obamacare Bring Down Progressivism?

    The implosion of Obamacare indicts not just the law itself, but the whole edifice of progressivism—a philosophy rooted in the belief that government, supposedly administered by “the best and the brightest,” can run things better than individuals. That idea is now, again, being proven incorrect. The hubris in the progressive … More

    They Got Away With It

    As President Obama said, they got away with it. Harry Reid and the Democrat-controlled Senate got away with changing the Senate’s rules so that they can shove through anything they want without having to worry about Republicans filibustering against it. Just a few short years ago, then-Senator Obama spoke forcefully … More

    Syria: Obama’s Policy Implosion

    The White House has become increasingly defensive about the supposed benefits of its policy zigzags regarding the deepening crisis in Syria. Syria’s humanitarian crisis is worsening; the Bashar al-Assad regime continues to get away with murder, supported by Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah; and Washington remains committed to a diplomatic solution … More

    Do You Believe Obama This Time? How About Now? …Now?

    Once upon a time, Obamacare was “settled” law that was “here to stay.” Or so President Obama said—before Obamacare failed to survive contact with reality. The reality is that the Administration is delaying the impact of major parts of the law, including the employer mandate and now the benefit mandates … More

    Obama's Cancellation "Fix": Violating the Law for a Short-Term Public Relations Move

    President Obama has told Obamacare’s critics that the law is “settled” and “here to stay.” But today he is saying he’ll violate the law to put a Band-Aid on it for another year. That’s in addition to the one-year delay in the employer mandate and numerous other “fixes” and delays. … More

    Obamacare Numbers: Not Exactly a Retail Success Story

    The first Obamacare enrollment numbers are out—and unsurprisingly, they’re under-whelming. Just 26,794 people “selected” plans through HealthCare.gov since the website launched. An additional 79,391 have selected plans through a state-based exchange—but the Administration qualifies these numbers by saying that all of these people haven’t necessarily paid for a plan yet. … More

    Obama's Promise of "Competition" in Obamacare: Also False

    Here’s what the President said in 2009: My guiding principle is, and always has been, that consumers do better when there is choice and competition. That’s how the market works. Unfortunately, in 34 states, 75 percent of the insurance market is controlled by five or fewer companies. In Alabama, almost … More

    Cruz: Obama Picks and Chooses Which Laws to Enforce (VIDEO)

    President Obama has “flouted the constitutional limits on the authority of the President” more than any other President before him, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said at a recent Heritage event. “Prior to this presidency, the way you had reasonable modifications of federal law is you went to Congress, you introduced … More
