This Asshat of a moderate Republican sounds like a Democrat – no understanding of Individual Liberty

by Skip January 3, 2018

Back from Dec 19th (updated based on the passage of the Federal Tax Reform bill): We no sooner get the Obamacare Individual Mandate jackboot off of our healthcare necks via the Tax Reform Act than this Republican Senate Jackal, US Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would be HAPPY to see the States turn around and put […]

Obamacare Individual Mandate is DEAD!

by Skip December 20, 2017

Democrats: live by the tax!  Republicans (today): OK, die by your tax, too And no, may it never live again.  As I said at the time of enactment of Obamacare (without a single Republican vote), the Founders would be spinning like mad to hearing that the Federal Government, supposedly limited in scope and power, would […]

ObamaCare Individual Mandate is a Tax on the Poor.

by Steve MacDonald December 5, 2017

With any luck, Tax reform reconciliation will include the Senate’s repeal of the ObamaCare individual mandate. The mandate punishes poor people, something Barack Obama understood before he became president. The individual mandate and its associated fine is, in other words, a tax on the poor. This is why, after years of Obamacare, the number of […]

So RedDiaperBaby and Jeemo, what say you now about Obamacare costs? Start groveling with abject apologies – Part 2

by Skip November 22, 2017

US Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in an op-ed says that while she didn’t support the Obamacare repeal votes earlier this year, she does support the tax reform bills having a repeal of the Individual Mandate that Government / Obamacare put in place for people who just wished to not purchase healthcare.  Once again, look at […]

That’s all that’s really needed – the single thread to be pulled

by Skip November 15, 2017

It’s about time that the DC Republican Congresstwits got a bit smarter! Reformated, emphasis mine:  Senate GOP Tax Plan to Include Repeal of Health Law Individual Mandate GOP leaders have been cautious about bogging down the tax bill with controversial health-care provisions, but have been suggesting they could include the repeal because it would generate […]

About those millions “LOSING” their Obamacare insurance coverage

by Skip July 24, 2017

I’ve been listening to a lot of nonsense about the impact of the different GOP “replacement” plans for Obamacare and the numbers just didn’t make any sense. After all, none of them drastically did much on the core structure of Obamacare.  They deleted most (but not all of the taxes).  They started to tinker with […]

Carol-Ann Shea-Kuster Was Against It Before “She” Was For It

by Steve MacDonald March 6, 2014

Carol SEIU-Porter and Ann “Hide your Camera” Kuster are like tiny, little, interchangeable, cogs in the progressive DC machinery.  So it should be no surprise that with re-election coming up they are suddenly in favor of delaying the implementation of an important piece of “job creating” legislation that hard-working American families (children, seniors, single moms, […]

Blogline of the Day – Government allows us to have a conscience?

by Skip December 11, 2013

“If the U.S. government can seize the power to force Christians to act against their consciences, what power can it be denied?”   This is in relationship to the both the employer mandate that forces them provide, in the now mandatory voluntary benefit of health insurance, those items that can lead up to the killing […]

Government Did Build That – And it Sucks!

by Steve MacDonald October 24, 2013

One of the things Obama and the Democrats refused to give Republican’s to avoid or end the PR shutdown of the Federal Government was a delay in the individual mandate.  Businesses got one.  They thought it only fair that the law apply equally to all.  Everyone should get the same delay privileges.  Democrats disagreed and […]

Remember: Jeanne Shaheen FIRST destroyed the NH Healthcare Insurance Mkt with SB711

by Skip October 23, 2013

…before going down to DC to help Obama destroy it nationwide. She is all about others controlling your healthcare – first here in NH where her horrible SB711 hurt NH families by reducing competition here in NH from over two dozen providers to effectively two – and premium rates soared.  Then being one of the […]

Data Point: Obama Plan – taxes going up for two million additional “victims”

by Skip September 27, 2012

After all, Democrats view everyone (almost) as a victim, right? And horrors – it is all on the Dems that have created this new victim gaggle!  And they state that 30 million folks will NOT be covered (er, wasn’t that the whole point of this boondoggle?) and 6 million (2 million more than planned – […]
