    Last year premiums went up 25%; it’s likely the increases will be higher this year.

    Where are the Democrats that are concerned about the rising costs of their Obamacare? Do they really think that a single-payer system will work? Are they aware that the abject failure of Obamacare was predicted, using simple economics? Many Democrats were strong-armed to pass this miserable law.

    Yes, the premiums of Obamacare, a 100% Democrat created mess, will continue to go up in costs, with quality of care going down. Why does the MSM only talk about those who might lose coverage? They also do not care what it cost? They believe that we should keep it alive with more tax increases? Where is the adult supervision?

    Is there a vast left wing conspiracy to keep Obamacare going and changed to single-payer?

    Let the middle class continue to shrink and pay and pay...

    The new records humanity is setting are frightening: Arctic sea ice at an all-time winter low; 2016 as the hottest year on record; and a new high in the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere in millions of years.

    Current climate change is normal and inside the range of natural variations that might be expected. There is a difference between weather variation and climate change.

    Miller needs to calm down and take a look at what is causing the current extremes, such as periodic variations in arctic and antarctic in global sea ice, effects of El Nino events, etc.

    In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty.

    The left is loudly saying that Obamacare is the best of all worlds!

    Why is not the left concerned about the continuing withdrawal of major companies, increasing rates, increasing co-pays, deductibles, etc.? It is a terrible system that gets ZERO publicity!

    How does the left plan to fix Obamacare, more taxes? Single payer?

    The right seems to be obsessed with worry about being criticized for loss of coverage of 20 million people. Is that so? Is that why we have a continuing entitlement program?

    The No. 2 House Democrat told Breitbart News late Thursday House Republicans will suffer at the polls no matter how they vote for the American Health Care Act, the health insurance industry rescue program crafted by Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-WI).

    Multiple polls show that the GOP’s Ryancare healthcare plan is even more unpopular than the perpetually unpopular Obamacare plan or the Democrats’ 1993 “Hillarycare” plan, says FiveThirtyEight.com, which analyses polls, surveys, and data.

    This statement makes no sense to me. Is it Fake News?

    Obamacare has a proven record of higher and higher costs, higher deductibles, with more than 20 million with no coverage. There are fewer doctors, fewer options, and fewer people who can afford the procedures they need. We were lied to about being able to keep our doctors. We were lied to about being able to keep our plans. Now they are all gone!

    We have few if any details on how the new health care plan will really work, other than unsubstantiated claims that it is bad!

    Paul Ryan has managed to get the president on board for a bill that is essentially Hillarycare.

    There is too much rhetoric about why the bill is no good, without explanation. Is it that complex?

    Why is the AHCA a good start? Some of the favorite features are no mandates, no penalties, repeal of taxes hidden in Obamacare, allowing the states to manage Medicaid, and, allowing states that opted for Medicaid expansion to keep it. These features are the exact opposite of what's in the Obamacare, which has failed miserably.

    No one gets hurt with the AHCA, except maybe the insurance and prescription drug companies, who will have to retool their business models. Building their models around Obamacare didn't work.

    The health insurance plan you were supposed to be able to keep is gone. Obamacare defined it out of existence. Yes, you were lied to!

    Many doctors some people were supposed to keep are gone. 

    Competing insurance companies in over a third of the counties in this country are gone.

    Some people's jobs are gone.

    Many of the so-called health insurance exchanges are gone.

    Sure, make Ellison the head of the DNC. And then watch more hell enter our country.

    Ellison as head of the DNC would be good for the Republicans and conservatives. Ellison would help to accelerate the decline of the Democrat party into oblivion.

    I do not think that the leftists know how far afield they are to the country's mainstream. As our economy gears up and Trump's policies are put into place the meaningless and unjustified complaints and violence by Democrats will disappear.

    Is the Hill a leftist news organization?

    The protestors are probably the same people who voted against the Brexit. They continue to ignore the forgotten men and women of Britain who voted for the Brexit.

    It is a Brexit protest by foolish people. They will be happy Brexit happened when the British economy improves markedly.

    This strikes me as unusual, given the American obsession with the so called separation between Church and State.

    I see Melania's prayer as a very good thing! Perhaps the issue of a so called separation between Church and State is really not an issue given the proper interpretation of separation of church and state.

    Growing up we had no issue with bible reading and prayer in school. I would love to see the invented concern with church and state be clarified in terms of original intent. There is no religious denomination designated as official by the government, but we are free to practice our religion or to practice no religion.

    It has been very sad to see the Democrats systematically remove God from our lives and from our constitution as they work toward their goal of a godless totalitarian government.

    In God we Trust.

  • Germany's Merkel to US: uphold, strengthen multilateralism

    Merkel told Pence and other world leaders, diplomats and defense officials at the Munich Security Conference that “acting together strengthens everyone.”

    These are empty words. Acting together strengthens everyone as long as the EU has the last say of what means "acting together." Socialism does not work. Has any nation that rejected God lasted very long?

    The concept of a One-World atheistic global government has failed. It's only success is to set up the EU to become a Muslim dominated culture featuring Sharia Law. That is working very well in France and Germany is it not?

  • Pruitt OK'd as EPA chief over environmentalists' objections

    Over the strong objections of environmental groups, the Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday, giving President Donald Trump an eager partner to fulfill his campaign pledge to increase the use of planet-warming fossil fuels.

    I would correct this statement to say the use of fossil fuels, dropping the unsubstantiated "planet-warming" words.

    Fossil fuels provide 24/7 energy, unlike the costly, uneconomical and environmentally damaging wind turbines, solar panels alternates that only work part time. Plus they are aesthetically ugly, kill eagles, bats, and other birds, and are not there when you need power at night or during unfavorable weather conditions.

    The Obama administration wasted billions of dollars on failed companies. Those dollars could have been directed to making the burning of fossil fuels even more clean and environmentally pleasing.

    “Here are the roots of the authentic humanity that resists the dehumanization that wears the livery of indifference, hypocrisy, or intolerance.”

    Do the roots of the authentic humanity that resists the dehumanization that wears the livery of indifference, hypocrisy, or intolerance, address the killing of the unborn, resistance to same sex marriage, and support for legal immigration?

    I pray that it is NOT the usual social justice mantra demanding more government money and negative government influence.

  • University of Wisconsin Students Demand ‘Full and Free Access for All Black People’

    The student government at Wisconsin's most prominent university has passed legislation calling for "free and full access" to the school for "all black people" as reparations for what it describes as "systemic denial" of minorities from the "white supremacist" institution.

    So forty years of affirmative action and quotas did not work? What about the negative affects of forty years of leaving the best and brightest behind in order to put "minorities" ahead of the line?

    Looks like a bunch of socialists wanting stuff for free.
