The Fiscal Irresponsibility of #Trumpcare

If anyone is waiting for the Republican Party to do anything to “fix” the health insurance system, they are wasting brain cells. It’s never going to happen because it, quite literally can’t happen. You see, it is possible for Republicans to deal with economic matters, in the abstract, but they …

The Abject Stupidity of Trumpcare

It really is this simple… The Republican Party is not capable of running the government properly. If you doubt that, look at their healthcare replacement. There is no way in which is isn’t a travesty,. And yet, they just lie about it. The latest example is HHS Secretary Tom Price …

Republican Pre-Existing Condition: Stupidity

It’s time someone said it. There IS NO SUCH THING AS “OBAMACARE.” Someone had to say it because it seems that no one in the media or politics wants to. The Republicans in the House will vote today to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” It will barely pass, if it does, …

The GOP and the Un-Affordable Care Act

For those of you who don’t remember, the Affordable Care act was passed about seven years ago. In that seven years, Republicans have promised to repeal it every election. Since they took over Congress, the House has voted to repeal it more than 70 times. When they took their seats …

They Don’t Even Know What Obamacare Is!

I wish I could fault Trump for not knowing what the ACA, otherwise known as “Obamacare,” is and what it does, but he’s getting his talking points from the ignoramuses on Fox News and right-wing talk radio, and they don’t know what it is, either. At a Florida campaign stop …

No, the ACA is NOT Failing

I have to admit, I am getting a little tired of the hyperbole that tries to pass for journalism these days. It’s getting really, really old. For example, there is this “analysis”from Monday’s New York Times about the Affordable Care Act. The headline, “Ailing Obama Health Care Act May Have …

Most Universal Health Care is NOT Single Payer…

The ultimate goal of health care reform should be universal health insurance. It’s about creating a system in which every American has access to the health care they need when they need it, without losing everything they have worked for in the process. It’s about making the system affordable and …

With Ebola, GOP scares people into staying home. Press helps.

There is no greater example of the national press absolutely dropping the ball on coverage of a story than the current Ebola panic of 2014. Keep in mind, the number one strategy of the Republican Party is to drive down turnout. And the most efficient way to drive down turnout …

Why you must be careful which “news sources” you trust…

If you want to know what’s wrong with our “news” media these days, it was absolutely apparent today. Check out these headlines. The first is from the Huffington Post: 2 GOP JUDGES STRIKE DEATH BLOW AGAINST OBAMACARE And look how prominent te headline is: —————————————– Then, there’s Think Progress: BREAKING: Two …

Pro Lefty Michael Moore: Obamacare is “Awful”

What is wrong with Michael Moore, really? For that matter, what is it about so many professional lefties that they are preternaturally disposed to bitch about good things more than they are to praise the good things and advocate for improvements they think are necessary. I mean, I like many …

Your Insurance is Better Now: Pre-Existing Conditions Were Scary

If you’re wondering why so many people claim they liked their old health insurance, the answer is simple. Very few people with health insurance ever use it for anything other than health maintenance, like doctor visits and annual checkups and the like. What many people seemed to be unaware of was …

Repost: Here’s What Obamacare Does…

I posted this on the old blog, on September 14, 2012, before the election. This is what people are complaining about. Seriously. If you think your old insurance was better, there are people who would pay good money for what you’re imbibing: ———————————————- This is What Obamacare Does. Romney and …

Bill Clinton Should Shut Up About Obamacare, Focus on His Charity

In the interest of full disclosure, Bill Clinton was not my first choice as president in 1992. I did ultimately vote for him, of course, but not in the primary. Clinton is a child of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), which was a horribly inept group that had but one …

Obamacare is NOT a “Failure.” Please, Journalists… Cut the Crap!

How tired are you of hearing damned near everyone with a microphone or a computer speak about the Affordable Care Act rollout as if it’s an abject failure? Seriously, listen to them, and you’d swear “Obamacare” was imploding as we speak. Do these geniuses really think Obamacare is just a …

GOP Moves From Killing ACA to a 1-Year Delay in the Mandate… We Won!

One thing you have to say about Republicans; they’re like little dogs with their favorite chew toy, in that they never give up on a meme. For example, take Obamacare. No matter how many times they try and fail to kill it, they will continue to try and fail, because their …

ACA Glitches Point Out (Once Again) *Republican* Incompetence

Let’s get real about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as “Obamacare.”  First of all, the only problem is with the website, and the website is not the only way to sign up. More than 500,000 new accounts have been set up so far, in a …

Who In Their Right Mind Could Possibly Be Against Obamacare?

The first thing I’d like to note is, the number of people who are against The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known simply as the ACA or “Obamacare,” because of what’s actually in it, is actually pitifully small. But dammit, they’re loud, and frankly, I’m tired of hearing them. …

Bill O’Reilly Gets It Ass Backward, As Usual

Surprise! Bill O’Reilly actually said something true in this video excerpt from the O’Reilly Factor! He is right. He is a simple man. As in simple minded. Although the people he’s speaking to (his audience, I mean) are actually simpler than he is. He’s discussing the Supreme Court’s twin rulings …

The Difference Between Democrats & Today’s GOP on Health Care

I won't give glowing praise for Democrats and a complete dismissal of Republicans on health care throughout the last century, because Democrats were only slightly better than Republicans when it came to fixing the complete mess our health care financing system has become.  But this isn't about history, it's about …
