In the wake of the Obama administration admitting the failure of Obamacare, several members of Congress want to defund this awful law. That's a great idea. Congress should not stop there though, but should insist on full repeal.
Now that the Obama Administration has finally admitted that its health industry takeover is unworkable, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) has called for changes to the law. I have a better idea. Repeal it, give the health care industry time to stabilize, and then see what needs to be done.
The Obama Administration has taken an axe to the Affordable Care Act, after finally admitting that it is too complex to implement. The move to delay the employer mandate appears to be illegal on its face. It is also further redundant proof that Obamacare must be repealed.
US Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is starting to realize that maybe, in the 21st century, bloggers and Twitter users deserve the same level of First Amendment protection as other journalists. Unfortunately, the definition of "journalist" the Senator prefers misses the mark, revealing in the process his desire to control the information received by the public.
The IRS, in its zeal to block the legal political activity of conservative groups, has still not come clean. The agency is out of control, and needs serious reform, and ought to be shuttered, its services provided in some other way.
The State of Illinois is a basket case. Unable to control its reckless spending, the state legislature approved a budget that calls for higher spending, even though the state has billions in unpaid bills and tens of billions in unfunded pensions. The pension problem, and the promises officials have made to state workers to get their votes, are now too big to ignore.
Funny Math: The Government Pretends They Save You Money
The federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services claim that consumers saved $3.9 billion because of restriction on insurance companies under Obamacare. The figure is almost meaningless. Also, they don't mention that Obamacare is raising insurance premiums, not lowering them.
Arizona: Grassroots Taking On The Governor's Henchmen
The coalition of hospital lobbyists, insurance companies, and political operatives who pushed through Medicaid expansion under Obamacare in Arizona have a repeal fight on their hands.Over 300 grassroots activists came together on Saturday in Phoenix to kick off a petition drive to put repeal of Governor Brewer's Medicaid expansion plan on the ballot. If successful, the drive will showcase the power that comes when principled conservatives organize inside a political party.
Lovers of freedom know that a limited government is the only way to achieve it. Limiting our government in the modern age means also limiting how it uses our personal data.
If you want to keep a secret, don't tell anyone. The only way to be sure data is not used improperly is not to allow them to collect it.
