Deranged women demand birth control! Why stop there?

by Kimberly Morin July 9, 2014

Today Jeanne Shaheen decided that jobs & the economy (which have been an epic fail under Democrat rule) are far less important than birth control.  She signed on to the following idiocy: The Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act of 2014, introduced by U.S. Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Mark Udall (D-CO) and co-sponsored […]

Vermont has embarked on a mission to create a single payer system.  They voted for it but have yet to pass a bill to pay for it.  I wonder why? “…Act 48 required Vermont to create a single-payer system by 2017, the state hasn’t drafted a bill spelling out how to raise the additional $1.6 […]

The spin to make 7 million so-called sign ups appear like a major embrace of ObamaCare is, as with all things Democrat, deceptive.  We don’t really know the true numbers.  We also do not know how many people have a policy or if they have made a single payment.  Then there’s the eggs they had […]

If ever there was a case for the benefit of ‘Rule of Law,’ where regardless of how constricting a law is at least everyone knows who and what it applies to and can predict how the law applies–the Progressive Pandora’s Box that is Obama-Care is it.

Yesterday the Democrats in the New Hampshire house forced a vote on SSHB0001_i, medicaid expansion for New Hampshire.  By forced, I mean that no one was given the opportunity to read the bill they were being asked to vote on.  A bill that would tie New Hampshire tighter to the constraints of ObamaCare; a bill […]

From Jeffery Lord at American Spectator  The worship of Big Government? The laughably arrogant “we-know-what’s-best-for-you” sense of moral and intellectual superiority? These “smart” people can’t even run a website. The eternal liberal dependence on class warfare and racism?

  There is not one single fact about this monstrosity (ObamaCare) that has been truly presented by the president, and his law, its destruction of lives and fortunes, and the pattern of fraud that have accompanied it rest solely and squarely on the Democratic Party.

You can keep your Doctor and your Coverage…..or not. It’s easy to get lost in the numbers: CareFirst is dropping healthcare coverage for 76,000 because of Obamacare.  In Florida, Obamacare is costing 300,000 their health insurance.
