And now you know why the Dems always said access to insurance and access to DOCTORS

by Skip April 22, 2014

And to think that our own US Senator Jeanne Shaheen and her sidekick US CongressCritter Carol SEIU-Porter were in on this lie gag on the American people.  Sure, we laughed at the website – that was a bonus (and, umm, it still doesn’t work on the backside either) but we also claimed “supply and demand” […]

CloseUP Doodlings – who Walt Haverstein first praised and then promptly threw under the bus

by Skip April 20, 2014

…and what the Journalist Round Table failed to recognize. WMUR’s CloseUp, their Sunday political rumination show, is generally good for a couple items and this week is no different.  Main interviewee was recently announced candidate for the NH GOP nomination for NH Governor, Walt Haverstein (re: info and oops!).  Well, Josh McElveen asked a question […]

The Bigger the Government, the smaller the citizen – Obamacare kicks widows off their insurance

by Skip April 19, 2014

So who protects us from Government? It is the Progressive way – no one must be allowed to stop “progress” for the greater good (whatever they mean by that).  That would include elderly widows (emphasis mine, reformatted): HUNTSVILLE, Ala.(WHNT)-More than a dozen widows who were married to retired Madison County employees saw their health insurance […]

No, Jeanne Shaheen, it’s your Obamacare that is going to shorten NH Ski seasons

by Skip April 18, 2014

Steve has been all over the Federal Government’s Ambassador to NH, Jeanne Shaheen’s utterances that global warming was going to kill off NH’s ski industry (here, here, and here).  And this year was one of the best EVAH for the industry as a whole.  So once again, Jeanne is wrong.  Really wrong.  And she was […]

Data Points – an amalgam

by Skip April 18, 2014

Been real busy so playing catch up.  Here’s a few unconnected, disjoint factoids: Census says!  86.5 million workers are supporting 148 non-workers. Enough people riding in the wagon for you, Zandra Rice-Hawkins, Jeanne Shaheen, and President Obama? The average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity hit a March record of 13.5 cents, according data released […]

OFA – “We Made History” Tweet

Thumbnail image for OFA – “We Made History” Tweet

This is stupid on many levels but coming from smiley-faced fascist progressive pragmatists the statement itself contradicts the entire movement they live for.  To a Liberal there is no history.  There can’t be.  Forward?  Change?  Progressivsim does not rest on the past, it only drives forward blindly ruining the future.   And you can’t “make” […]

The Cost of ‘Free’ Health Care

by Steve MacDonald April 15, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Cost of ‘Free’ Health Care

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 […]

Data Point – Redistribution on steroids

by Skip April 13, 2014

After all, taxes just shovels money from one set of folks to a different set of folks.  And Saul Alinsky was all about, in “hiding” Socialism, moving the stuff from the Haves to the Have Nots.  The purpose was always to obtain the power to make that happen.  Kinda looks, with the premier Alinskyite devotee […]

The obligatory post: Sebelius resigns

by Skip April 11, 2014

At that level of any organization, one never knows in looking from the outside in and bottom up whether is was pre-ordained, self-determined, or “quit or be fired”.  In any case, HHS Secretary Sebelius has handed in that resignation.  $700 million and four years for a website that still doesn’t work (front end mostly, but […]

Jeanne Shaheen – A Strong Independent Voice for NH? Not when that Voice runs away…

…from the issue and “grand policy” that marks her term as US Senator when a constituent confronts her on it.  That would be Obamacare and that would be Donna Marzullo who lost her insurance policy BECAUSE of the Federal Govt Ambassador to NH Jeanne Shaheen’s deciding vote that determined that Individuals were incapable of choosing […]

It adds a whole new meaning to ‘We are the 99%’ when a multi-millionaire-one-percenter like Shaheen votes with the destructive Obama ruling class agenda 99% of the time after she said she’d be a strong independent voice for NH.  Heck, she even repeated the ruling class ObamaCare lies?  Independent?  From what, Reality?

Democrat War On Work – Are You Pivoting From ObamaCare to Jobs Because ObamaCare Kills Jobs?

by Steve MacDonald April 4, 2014
Thumbnail image for Democrat War On Work – Are You Pivoting From ObamaCare to Jobs Because ObamaCare Kills Jobs?

Yesterday I observed what has been observed rightly, from the right, for years.  ObamaCare can’t help but kill jobs. I know, wasn’t ObamaCare a jobs Bill?  Sure.  Everything Democrats passed in 2009 and 2010 was a jobs bill.  Commemorating post offices was a jobs bill.  Defunding abstinence education to pay for more abortions was a […]

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 […]

Is the Obamacare Celebration an April Fool’s Joke?

by Don April 1, 2014

President Obama and his supporters are celebrating their Obamacare achievements.  Great, so the 40-50 million uninsured are now insured?   No. Their March goal was 7 million.  Well, insuring 7 million of the uninsured is a good start.  No, that didn’t happen. Their goal was revised to 6 million.  Well, insuring 6 million of the uninsured […]

Repeal It, Kill It, Gut It, Never Bring It Back

by Ed Naile April 1, 2014

The media pundits have declared ObamaDemocratCare “unrepealable” because it reached the phony milestone of trapping a couple million registrants who were kicked off real health insurance by ObamaDemocratCare. The idea behind this new media mantra is that the Republicans will adopt this lie as their own marching order into the next election and learn to […]

Annie Kuster is silent here, and Sebelius is silent here: “Kathleen Sebelius appeared to have no retort when confronted with Oklahomans’ dislike for Obamacare, and sat silent on air.   On Monday, Oklahoma City’s KWTV-TV anchor asked Sebelius about the “64 percent of Oklahomans [who] aren’t buying into the health-care plan. “They don’t like Obamacare, and […]

Inconsistency – hallmark of the Left

by Skip March 31, 2014

Can’t you all even get the narrative right? The Left is trying to redefine the language again so that OTHERS must supply another’s needs (classic “according to their needs” mantra) – this translates into “I demand that you pay for me”.  Once again, the Progressives are all willing to minimize the Constitutional meaning and power […]

ObamaCare Surge? Cue Queue The Failures!

by Mike March 31, 2014

Surprise! The enrollment (sort of) deadline generated the expected surge of traffic, especially by people trying to get registered so they could take advantage of yet another “extension” available to people who had made a good faith effort. So, naturally, the contractors running HealthCare.gov pulled out all the stops, laid on extra capacity, and were […]
