The Worst Possible Inaugural Address, By the Worst Possible President

Donald Trump is now the president of the United States, and on his very first day, with his very first speech, he has managed to redraw the picture of America to which we are used. Before Trump, we were accustomed to an America that engaged the world with confidence and strength. An America willing to …

Paul Krugman and the Truth Just Don’t Seem to Get Along

I won't hold my breath waiting for the New York Times to correct Paul Krugman's latest op-ed piece. But the New York Times really ought to correct Paul Krugman's latest op-ed piece. And perhaps it ought to discipline Krugman for being so cavalier with the facts, which in his op-ed, he pretends are "awkward" for the …

The Never Ending Trainwreck

If you want some reassuring news about Obamacare, you have come to the wrong blog: The president of the United States informs us that under Obamacare, we "might end up having to switch doctors." This is the part where I remind readers--as though any reminder were actually needed--that during the campaign for Obamacare, the president reassured …

Your “Nothing to See Here, Move Along” Post of the Day

I am really tired of linking to stories like this one, but it's necessary to do so, given the fact that some people are pretending that the implementation of Obamacare is going just as planned: In a colossal “oh by the way” revelation, last Friday afternoon the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a federal …

It also puts forth the following assertion: . . …

The bad news regarding the implementation of health care "reform" just keeps on coming: Cathy Wagner says she isn’t political and has never written a lawmaker, much less the president, but with Obamacare she felt compelled. “I really just wanted him to know … I was so hopeful that this plan was going to move …

“Sorry” Seems to Be the Hardest Word

This latest Obamacare update features a semi-apology from the president of the United States: President Obama said Thursday that he is "sorry" that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they …

Yes, It’s Time for Yet Another Obamacare Rollout Calamity Update

And we have quite a lot of ground to cover. A poll indicates that seventy percent of American voters want a delay of the individual mandate. I am frankly surprised that the number is not higher. There has been a lot of talk about extending the enrollment period. Insurance companies don't like that idea, because it …
