How Serious Are Obama’s Untruths?

It is now tolerably clear that the president of the United States knowingly misled the public about the effects of the health care law when he was promoting it.  He repeatedly assured voters that they would be able to keep plans that they liked, and it is now plain that this is not true. It [...]

#BeTransparent Tweetfest is Today

Today, a coalition of pro-life groups are inviting everyone to take part in the #BeTransparent tweetfest.  The purpose of the tweetfest is to demand greater transparency about which health insurance plans – offered on the exchange – cover abortion.  Research by the Charlotte Lozier Institute has found that in numerous states, information about which exchanged [...]

Remember Joe (“You Lie!”) Wilson?

This afternoon as I was thinking about the political scene, I suddenly remembered Joe Wilson, the Republican House member from South Carolina who vaulted himself to national notoriety by yelling “you lie” during one of President Obama’s speeches to Congress in support of his health care proposal during 2009.  Congressman Wilson was rebuked by many [...]

Obamacare’s Deeper Problems: Three Views

I’d like to follow up on CatholicVote’s most recent posting, which notes that the problems with the health care law go deeper than mere problems with the website.  Problems with the website are essentially technical problems.  They can probably be resolved sooner or later. These problems are relatively simple to understand, and so have monopolized [...]

It’s not just the website!

Moments ago, Secretary Sebelius apologized to Congress. …for a malfunctioning website. But the problem is not just the website. The problem is Obamacare itself! Obamacare is a disaster for American families coast to coast. We don’t need a website fix. We need real healthcare reform — starting with an end to Obamacare. In her testimony [...]

The Larger Significance of the Health Care Law’s Failure to Launch

Pat Buchanan has a column on the embarrassing failings of the government’s health care website, written with all of his usual brio, wit, and pugnacity.  While he is clearly having fun at the expense of the political party against which he worked for much of his life, he nevertheless ends on an ominous note: In [...]

Vulnerable Senate Democrats call for delay in Obamacare rollout

Boy, when Republicans suggested delaying Obamacare, they were called “anarchists” and “terrorists” and such. But now Democrats in the Senate facing a tough reelection next year are running scared over the failed Obamacare rollout. Thankfully, they have a idea on what to do: “The problems surrounding the federal exchange for the Affordable Care Act are absolutely [...]

Obamacare vs. Beer Money

In the Rose Garden the other day, President Obama insisted that, while the federal Obamacare exchanges weren’t working very well, the product they were selling was a good product. Once the IT “glitches” were solved everything would be hunky-dory. Unfortunately for the President, and for Obamacare, the disastrous roll-out of the federal exchanges presents problems [...]

Who Pays for Human Rights?

It is mildly heartening that the European Parliament “rejected” a bill that “as a human rights concern, abortion should be made legal, safe and accessible to all.” I say “mildly” and use quotes around “rejected” since you’d think calling infanticide a “fundamental human right” would yield zero Yea votes. Nay. The “murder is a fundamental [...]
