King Obama’s Obamacare exemptions

Don’t like ObamaCare? Tough. Law of the land. Passed in both houses. Upheld by the Supreme Court. Isn’t that what we’ve all been told for years? “Shut up!” they explained. We know what’s good for you. Our legislative experts who admitted to not reading the 2,000-page bill prior to passing it arrogantly determined that they […]

ObamaCare may cover, but it doesn’t treat.

Here’s yet another crushing story about how ObamaCare first took away a cancer victim’s working and effective insurance plan, and then removed her access to what was that patient’s most effective drug treatment, Sandostatin. It’s written by the son of the victim, Stephen Blackwood, who is president of a small liberal arts college. It also […]

Regarding that shutdown.

I’m late in any posting on this topic but the House GOP should have certainly expected the public to hold them far more accountable than Democrats or President Obama — I mean, that’s just one of the many big advantages in having an alphabet soup of television networks that carry water for your causes. So […]

Obamacare in one sentence.

Hat tip to Frogbrother:

Libs just fine with their 5-4 rulings.

Here’s Jonah Goldberg: In the majority opinion written by Roberts, the Supreme Court held that the mandate to buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause. But Roberts also found that it’s constitutional under Congress’s power to tax. It is on these […]

Dems effective in bullying Roberts.

Citing President Obama’s criticism of the Supreme Court during his State of the Union address, Michael Walsh argues that the liberal intelligensia were successful in bullying Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts into capitulation: The Right needs to stop kidding itself that last week’s epic Dolchstoss amounts to anything but a loss: a loss to the […]

Roberts apologists.

In a summary: too clever by half. I too have read the arguments that somehow the Roberts opinion will foster a new era of rolling back Commerce Clause abuses and find the arguments lacking. But here’s some other guys who write better than me. Jonah Goldberg: Yes, yes: I know. Already numerous people I respect […]

The John Roberts Betrayal.

Like many others my very first thought upon learning of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Robert’s decision to uphold the “Affordable Healthcare Act”/Obamacare was “What’s the point of winning elections — and therefore voting — when those elected lack backbone and otherwise let you down?” Supreme Court justices are of course appointed by an elected […]

How many Supreme Court Justices does it take to figure out ObamaCare?

Again, it cannot be overstated, those immortal words of our Constitution’s author, James Madison: “It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” In other […]

Obama redefines judicial activism to meet his definition.

I always get a kick out of liberals when they try to summarize a conservative argument but purposely butcher that definition in order to reverse engineer the outcome they seek. Here was President Obama preemptively attacking the Supreme Court for possibly overturning his Obamacare mandate. “And I’d just remind conservative commentators that, for years, what […]
