Only Taxpayers in State Exchanges are Eligible for Tax Credits

A key provision of the unpopular Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act means that employers only incur a mandate penalty when an employee takes advantage of subsidies in the state-run exchange.  A contemporaneous report from the Congressional Research Service confirms that interpretation.As we have noted, if there is no state-run exchange, there can be no subsidy to an employee and thus no penalty to an employer. Some are calling this problem a typo or drafting error, but it was no mere missing word. It was a strategic decision on the part of Congress. It means states should not implement an exchange.The Obama Administration, of course, is interpreting the law to mean what they want it to mean, not what it says it means by its plain wording and legislative history.

BREAKING: Waste, Fraud, Abuse Uncovered In State Health Program

Every once in a while, the paper of record here in Oregon comes up with an interesting article that puts the hood up on our state government and gives it a going over. Granted, a regular maintenance plan should include far more frequent tune ups and oil changes, but when they remember to look at that little sticker in the corner of their windshield, they can be very diligent when they finally get in to the mechanic.

Obama: "If You've Got a Business - You Didn't Build That! Somebody Else Made That Happen"

Barack Obama lectured supporters on economics and entrepreneurship last night in Roanoke, Virginia. He actually said this, "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."

Full Repeal Part 1: Do Not Implement a PPACA Exchange

Freedom-loving Americans are more determined than ever to be rid of the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, knowing as we do that it will neither protect patients nor be in any way affordable.  FreedomWorks and other pro-freedom organizations have a simple Five Point Plan for full repeal. The first two of those points call for states to limit the Act's reach. It is important for activists and policy makers to understand these points and be able to explain them to others.First,  governors and legislators should decline to implement the Act's exchange in their state.The final four points are to decline to expand the state's Medicaid program, and for pro-repeal candidates to win the House, Senate, and Presidency in November. Then, of course, we will have to keep the pressure on our elected officials to pass a full repeal and proceed with reforms that champion patient centered health care and free market principles.

PPACA Waivers and the Roberts Decision

The Obama administration granted more than 1600 waivers over compliance with parts of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court ruling that the individual mandate is a tax will not affect the waivers, as they dealt with what kind of insurance people have, not whether they have it.  The ruling, and the waivers, point us directly to the disaster that awaits the country unless the PPACA is fully repealed.

How the Fed is Making a Mess of our Economy

The Fed decided last week to extend Operation Twist, a program that involves buying up short term government bonds in order to purchase long term government debt.  This is not only a waste of time and money, but it also represents yet another attempt on the part of the government to manipulate the free market and pick winners and losers in the process.

The harassment of conservative bloggers has been in the news quite a bit lately, and for good reason. The story has been covered at FreedomWorks previously, and in the month since, the situation has gotten worse.

Obamacare SCOTUS Fever Has No Cure

The countdown has begun.The time of year normally reserved for excitement only among baseball fans and out of school students has an added political component that's unusual even for a presidential election year: a nation breathlessly awaiting a Supreme Court decision that could swing that election.

A Liberal Inadvertently Reveals Death Panels Again, Chapter 5,621,980

I'm not normally in the habit of rewarding leftist blogs with links or mentions that drive up their traffic, but today I can't resist.Here in Oregon, owing to the large population of liberal voters in our urban centers, one of the most followed blogs is Blue Oregon. Think of Blue Oregon as a sort of ThinkProgress on a state level.
