New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen almost sounds as if she has traded her copy of Karl Marx’ Das Kapital for Adam Smiths ‘Wealth of Nations.’  She actually said, “..people who are willing to pay more, that they have that option of going to their doctor and hospital no matter what.” There’s almost a faint Free-Market […]

The DCCC has been sending out holiday cheat sheets for years, proof that Democrat voters really are too stupid to know what their own talking points are or how to articulate them.  That’s doubly funny because I know what they are without even looking. Well this year OFA (Organizing for Acorn Squash) has an instructional […]

Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat Senator from New York, is on the record stating that everybody knew that people losing their insurance plans was a central premise of the ObamaCare Roll Out.

Then minority leader John Boehner speaks before the House the night of ObamaCare in that chamber;  whatever you think of him now, or wheter or not he has since stepped on his own toes (and I think he has)…when it comes to the ACA and what happened after Democrats rammed it though, he had it […]

Democrat Care is so good…Even Doctors are losing their coverage… Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act, came packaged with lofty promises. President Obama said his law was supposed to make denials of insurance based on pre-existing conditions a thing of the past.

It’s an old UPS tag line, What can Brown Do for You, but now it has so many meanings I’m not sure where to begin.  Maybe we’ll just go with this:  UPS is a Teamster shop, their pilots and their mechanics are all in unions.  Unions pushed hard and spent much in blood and treasure […]

Makes Perfect Sense- Part-Time Employment-Nation Run by Part-Time President

by Steve MacDonald August 5, 2013

Yes, yes, we know the left promised good jobs with living wages for American families.  The left promised us we’d be under boiling seas as well–didn’t stop the limousine liberals from owning or spending slivers of their fortunes on beachfront property.  Obama Care was filled with more progressive promises than you can shake a multi-thousand […]

Obama Care is Just Another Laser Pointer And You Are All Cats.

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2013

I recently reiterated my oft-said point on GrokTALK! this week that you can’t be a principled Republican and support unions; voting against Right to Work for example mandates employee funding of the Democrat machine and everything it tries to destroy.  And Obama Care was just the biggest, most recent example.  Unions were all in.  They […]

Sorry Lee Nyquist, Jeanne Shaheen is NOT a Moderate Senator

by Steve MacDonald June 12, 2013

Before I expose the fraud perpetrated by Democrat Lee Nyquist in the Union Leader this past week, where he gushed about how Jeanne Shaheen is this respected, put together, moderate Senator, I have a quick question. If George Bush can be blamed almost a decade later for the Obama Administration Bureaucracy engaging in unprecedented intrusions […]

Hey Baucus No Running from YOUR Train Wreck!

by Scott Morales April 18, 2013

How convenient to awaken in the bar car, stinking of gin, cigars, and $30.00 hookers, and then slither off, shower, shave, and return just in time to shame those still hunkered down in wrinkled suits, shriveled ties and soiled pride. Well, that’s what Sen. Max “More coal man! We need to get this rattler up […]

“Squirrels!” Best Mind Your Nuts!

by Steve MacDonald February 21, 2013

Last week we observed that the more train-wrecked-liberal places like California were already preparing for doctor shortages.  Medical Doctors are leaving the profession because of growing government interference and the looming price and cost pressures of Obama-Care. The Progressive State’s solution?  Redefine what “Doctor” means until all your oars are manned.  (Perhaps a more apt metaphor would be having enough hands […]

It Depends on What The Definition of ‘Affordable’ Is

by Steve MacDonald February 1, 2013

The Democrat conquest of the Insurance market continues apace as the IRS has just released some more rules for the commoners to live by.   These ‘rules’ include the definition of ‘affordable’ as in “Patient Affordable Care Act,” and as it turns out… Nearly 500,00 children, under Obamacare, will still lack health insurance because many poor […]

I told them.  If you want people to quit smoking, you had best not get used to the revenue from tobacco taxes.   Don’t count on it for anything if you want to extinguish smoking in our lifetime.  You know, make it history?  But what did New Hampshire Democrats do when Republicans tried to back away […]

Why We Can’t Have A Discussion With New Hampshire Democrats

by Steve MacDonald December 28, 2012

Over at my other haunt, NH Insider, my Fridge mag cross-post elicited the following response from Democrat Jim Splaine on the matter of gun ownership, which exemplifies the reason why any discussion with Democrats on any subject is unlikely. Why can’t we have a real discussion about this issue? Just like the myths of an […]

We’ve all stood on principle.”   That would be the principle […]

Liberty University had challenged the law on religious grounds courtesy of the insurance mandate itself, the HHS’ contraceptive mandate,  and the retarded left-wing notion that the government can prohibit any and every […]
