Sunday Round-Up

Christine O’Donnell: I was a victim of the IRS Tea Party Queen, Christine O'Donnell, a victim of the IRS, she says. Is this believable? Consider. On March 9, 2010, around 10 a.m., I announced my plans to run for senate representing Delaware. Later that same day, my office received a call from … [Read more...]

Is ‘Obamacare’ really health insurance?

The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, was enacted to fill a 'need' to cover pre-existing conditions and provide coverage for even more procedures and conditions. The Act requires insurance companies to cover virtually every medical expense whether you need it or not. This, to me, doesn't sound … [Read more...]

Is Healthcare a Right?

This question has been mulled over ad nauseam, I realize. But given all the hoopla over ObamaCare, it's a legitimate question that deserves debate. So, I'm asking. Personally, I (TerranceH) believe healthcare is a right. And rather than people explain why my argument is lacking, I want people to … [Read more...]

Replace ObamaCare With?

I couldn't be certain, but I think the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare") is on its second to last leg. But give it credit, for such an awfully asinine law that accomplishes almost nothing to reign in health care costs, it's stuck around for awhile.  Consider, too, that it … [Read more...]

If you like your doctor and health insurance, you can keep it…maybe not

Obamacare is the law of the land

But so is Roe v Wade and DOMA.  And so was Dred Scott. And separate but equal and every other Jim Crow law for that matter. Laws are enacted and repealed -- well not so much repealed anymore. But simply being the law of the land doesn't entitle it from alteration or repeal. I expect my … [Read more...]

Trending Now: #DefineGOPin3words

This is the perfect follow-up to my previous post where I point out that the political left use hyperbolic language to paint their ideological counterparts as evil and unworthy of consideration.  The political left views the political right as immoral for holding the beliefs they do.  If you oppose … [Read more...]

The Affordable Care Act not so affordable

I decided to check the health insurance exchange for my State to see just how affordable health insurance would be if I was to enroll.  Turns out I couldn't afford the least expensive plan at all.  Seriously, I couldn't. Who can afford $736 a month, roughly $8,840 annually?  On top of that, I … [Read more...]

Proof American voters are incorrigibly confused

Granted this proof comes from twitter, but it still has discussional merit.  Pew Research has noted the Twitter response to the feelings about Obamacare and who is responsible for the government shutdown. Admittedly these aren't necessarily the same people making both claims.  However, we should … [Read more...]

Is Ted Cruz a healthcare hypocrite?

Near the close of Texas Senator Ted Cruz's 21 hour symbolic filibuster protesting the funding of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, fellow Senator Dick Durbin (D - Illinois) challenged Cruz in an attempt to paint him as a hypocrite. SEN. DURBIN: Will the senator from Texas for the record tell … [Read more...]

Government shutdown: Who’s at fault?

If the government shuts down -- I don't believe it will -- who will you blame? The Republican plan funds the government to the requests of the President and his political compatriots, except for the ACA (Obamacare).  The President and Senate Democrats pledge to vote down and veto any bill that … [Read more...]

Trending Now: #MakeDCListen

The Make DC Listen hashtag is more than a protest against President Barack Obama's healthcare law.  The fact is a large majority of the American public has been opposed to this law from it's inception.  In order to get the nation's attention, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) is engaging in a token … [Read more...]

An animated metaphor for Obamacare

Even Democrat legislators who voted for Obamacare are seeing the logistical dangers of it.  From implementation to unintended financial burdens, it is becoming apparent all that what will become President Obama's legacy is a disaster.  Flags should have been raised when unions and large corporations … [Read more...]
