The Supreme Court's Decision for Non-Lawyers

The Supreme Court's June 28th decision on ObamaCare came as a shock to many. But to others, it was a confusing document full of complexities that the mainstream media simply couldn't explain. There's so much more to the decision than most people know about, but the document itself is long and complicated. That's why we created an easy to read summary for our activists. We call it the Roberts Decision for Non-Lawyers. Download a copy at the bottom of this post.

HSA Enrollment & Fiscal Responsibility Are Trending

When liberals try to fix the American health care system, they focus on all the wrong things. ObamaCare took the approach of covering the many uninsured, and forced all Americans to purchase health insurance they may not want or need. But the problem in America isn’t lack of health insurance, it’s the skyrocketing costs of health care.

Limiting Government Through the Culture War

The speeches at FreePAC in Dallas July 26 will have a lasting impact on the movement for limited government. Each was inspirational and important, but one stands out among the others for the insight that political victories are a result of cultural change. The only way to limit government is with a limiting culture.You can watch the rest of the amazing FreePAC speeches from the links below:

VIDEO: FreePAC Blogger Press Conference With Senators And Candidates

One of the privileges afforded the writers on Bloggers Row at FreePAC on July 26 was the opportunity to attend a "press gaggle" after the event. We had the opportunity to head down to the arena's catacombs for press availability with Sen. Jim DeMint, Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Rand Paul, Senate Candidate Ted Cruz from Texas and Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock from Indiana.Here is the video of that event. (Technical note - please excuse the audio difficulties. There was a ton of background noise and this was taken on my cell phone.)Highlights include:

Bizarre Scene As Dumbfounded Freedom Fighters Watch Olympic Opening Ceremonies Pay Tribute to NHS

A bizarre scene unfolded on the day after FreePAC in the lounge of the W Hotel in Dallas Texas. Several FreedomWorks activists were relaxing before dinner, including activists from Indiana and Ohio, myself, Kristina Ribali and Dean Clancy, Vice President of Healthcare Policy at FreedomWorks. It was about 7pm, and we were sharing stories and socializing. Electricity in the lounge increased as we realized that there was a Mary Kay convention in town, and the bar began to fill up with sales ladies, and the volume slowly began to rise. We didn't really take much notice.

Why We Won’t “Just Give Up Already” On ObamaCare

These days, the left is just about begging conservatives to surrender on repealing ObamaCare.

Issue Analysis

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.

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.
