Yes, minimum wage increases reduce employment and hurt low-skilled workers

Earlier this year, the Congressional Budget Office released an analysis on effects of raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, a proposal supported by President Barack Obama and many Democrats on Capitol Hill. The nonpartisan fiscal research arm of Congress estimated that this artificial increase would result in as many as 1 million workers losing their jobs, a finding that was disputed by the White House and economists more interested in advocacy for a cause than the consequences of bad policy.

Spending deal blocks the Obama administration from using taxpayer funds to bail out health insurers

There are plenty of provisions in the newly released $1.014 trillion hybrid spending bill, dubbed the "CROmnibus," that are unwise, wasteful, and bad public policy. There are, however, some policy victories tucked away in the more than 1,600-page document, among them a provision that blocks the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services from using taxpayer funds to bailout health insurance companies that participate in ObamaCare.

Jonathan Gruber contradicted himself on the availability of ObamaCare subsidies in a big way

In addition to his stunning arrogance and the insincerity of the so-called "apology" he offered to American public on Tuesday, Jonathan Gruber gave a new, albeit completely misleading defense of remarks he's made about the availability of ObamaCare subsidies to states that don't set up their own exchanges.

Jonathan Gruber's arrogance and hostility completely undermines his already insincere apology

Jonathan Gruber apologized for his "insulting and mean comments" about the intelligence of voters during his opening statement before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The manner in which he conducted himself throughout the hearing, however, brings into question his sincerity. Even his apology came across with a strong degree of arrogance and contempt for the general public.

ObamaCare is worsening one of the most glaring problems in the American healthcare system

ObamaCare is perpetuating one of the most glaring problems in the American healthcare system: the doctor shortage that the country faces. Provider networks for health plans on the exchanges are already known for their limited networks, which is a way health insurance companies hold down costs, but the shortage of primary care physicians is exacerbating the problem, as the Associated Press explains:

Senate Democrat: ObamaCare is a "complex, convoluted," and "really complicated" system

Just days after Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told a crowd at the National Press Club that the priority placed on ramming ObamaCare through Congress in 2009 was a mistake, one of his colleagues, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), one of the co-authors of the law, conceded that it has only further complicated healthcare in the United States.
