REPEAL OF OBAMACARE AND THE FREEDOM CAUCUS – WHAT HAPPENED?

By Jack Boyle, re-posted with his permission. I’ve watched the ongoing action over the effort to repeal Obamacare and feel the need to comment on some things that have I’ve not seen addressed in the discussion thus far. Most important is the universal identification of the Freedom Caucus as the culprit that scuttled the effort. This is a profoundly misleading and purposely inaccurate idea; one that has been crafted and is being pushed by exactly […]

In 2014 Lynch ran […]

Supreme Court rewrites “in-artfully drafted” Obamacare law to fix it

The Justices of the US Supreme Court sitPREFACE – Having read the entire 47 pages, I found the Courts document clear and concise. Every word and every sentence was important and had meaning (I wish I could write like this). This made it very difficult to pull out specific language or sentences to highlight points. I encourage everyone to download, print, and read this document. This courts decision will forever taint the integrity of the Supreme Court. It should serve to emphasize […]

Fox News indicates that the administration […]

Obamacare Enrollment Not As Reported by Obama Administration

thHow much more obfuscation and misinformation about Obamacare will Americans be subjected to? Bloomberg reports that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee discovered that the Obama administration has been misreporting the number of people enrolled in Obamacare by approximately 380,000. The administration was double accounting for consumers who were enrolled in both a medical and dental plan through the federal and state health care marketplaces in order to get the enrollment numbers above 7 […]

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the stupidest man of all.”

th-1Jonathan Gruber, the now notorious Obamacare architect, may just well be the most toxic man in America. He has managed to offend literally all of the American public by referring to the “stupidity of the American voter,” calling his countrymen “too stupid,” and claiming that we have a “lack of economic understanding.” These comments and more were made in at least six video clips from various conferences during which Gruber explained the way Americans were […]
