  • Trump Needs to Re-Brand "Obamacare" With Some Killer Nickname That Really Fits.

    Crooked Hillary, Low-Energy Jeb, Very Fake News - we've all seen Trump masterfully take down his opponents by re-branding them with names like these. And yet for some reason, as it relates to one of his major campaign promises, he has not yet used this effective tool against the label of "Obamacare" - which arguably serves the purposes of the left by associating "caring" with not only that horrific law, but with all things "Obama". So I propose that Trump and folks on the right start calling this law some other fitting name. Here are a few of my own...

    (Spoiler Alert: If you find slavery or infanticide disturbing, you may be too squeamish to read further.) A perfect crystallization of the full heart and soul of socialized or "single payer" health care is on display in the story of Charlie Gard, a ten-month-old infant with a life-threatening genetic condition, and his parents, Chris and Connie, whose desperate efforts to save their child have been diverted, and finally thwarted, first by the British government and now by an entity with the perfectly Orwellian name "European Court of Human Rights." The parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard are ‘utterly distraught’ and...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that opposing the Republican health-care bill wasn't enough and the Democratic Party should start running on a new national single-payer plan. "President Obama tried to move us forward with health-care coverage by using a conservative model that came from one of the conservative think tanks that had been advanced by a Republican governor in Massachusetts," she told The Wall Street Journal. "Now it's time for the next step. And the next step is single payer." Polling has shown government-provided health care to be a very popular notion among Americans. Depending on whether it's described as...

    Standing at a bus stop in Paris recently, I noticed an advertisement for Médecins du Monde, Doctors of the World, a charity similar to the more famous Médecins Sans Frontières. “Liberty, equality, health,” it proclaimed: in other words, health replaced fraternity in the trio of French republican virtues (or aspirations). At the bottom of the ad were two additional slogans: HEALTH FOR ALL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE But what could health for all possibly mean? Health even for the dying? Or immortality, perhaps?........ What goes for money, however, also goes for health. The healthy man and the paralyzed have equally the...

    Nail biter? I’m thinking it will be close no matter what, but last time around they never even got to a vote because support was tanking right up to the time it was supposed to happen, and finally Paul Ryan pulled the bill because the failure was going to be monumental. This time? Do they know for sure that they’ve got the votes? And if so, what did they do to the bill to get there? Thursday suddenly got tense, friends: The latest iteration of the GOP bill would let states escape a current requirement that insurers charge healthy and...

    Bad move by Trump. Ryan and the globalist big government GOPe RINOs are the problem not the Freedom Caucus. Trump is supposed to be draining the swamp by now, not swimming in it. Put the interest of American citizens first! Freedom not socialism and tyranny!! Good grief! Dump Obamacare already! Should have been done on day one and we’d be way on down the road to draining the swamp by now! We the people have been demanding a full repeal for seven long years and that's the position Trump took with his original health care goal at the beginning of...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/22/2017 | John Merline
    If the Republican's ObamaCare replacement plan ends up looking an awful lot like ObamaCare, here's one reason why: Prominent conservatives have already conceded defeat. In his latest column, Charles Krauthammer declared that "For all its catastrophic flaws, ObamaCare changed expectations. Does any Republican propose returning to a time when you can be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition?" Another well-known conservative commentator, George Will, wrote almost exactly the same thing in his column that just posted. "It is unknowable whether Barack Obama produced an American consensus in favor of a government obligation to guarantee universal access to health...

    We are the most religious democracy in the world, and our Judeo-Christian ethic demands that we take care of the downtrodden. But we are also the only advanced democracy without universal health coverage. Are we confused . . . or just hypocrites? My bet is that we are very confused. The public’s reaction to Obamacare (also known as the Affordable Care Act, or ACA) is a prime example of our confusion. Most Americans are preoccupied with making a living and raising a family, and rightly so. They have no time to fully examine health care policy issues. Surveys show that...

    WikiLeaks ^ | 1/29/16 (original: 5/09) | Tanden, Clinton
    President Barack Obama didn't embrace the individual mandate during the campaign, which means he would essentially start from scratch in terms of selling the idea to voters. The mandate was a central policy difference with Hillary Clinton, who argued that a mandate was the only way to achieve universal coverage. Let's hope we get the mandate since we know nothing will work w/out it. So how's it going? If I were to talk to one or two decision makers about a few matters, who would that be--Orszag? Rahm or Zeke? Nancy Ann? Or???In this email exchange from 2009 between HDR22...

    President Barack Obama offers multiple excuses for why health insurance premiums continue to skyrocket, including blaming Republicans and insurance companies for the problems. He complains that too many reporters spend more time discussing premium increases than explaining why he isn’t responsible for them. “No, I had nothing to do with that,” Obama said, calling it “complicated” despite the “hysteria” that was growing. Obama traveled to Florida to argue that Obamacare was working well, but needed to be fixed

    Leaked email suggests Clinton rooting for Affordable Care Act to collapse An email leaked by WikiLeaks Tuesday appears to suggest that Hillary Clinton wants the Affordable Care Act to fail — presumably as a pretense for implementing single-payer, government-controlled health care. In a chain between Clinton and her senior policy adviser Ann O’Leary titled “Memo on Cadillac Tax for HRC,” Clinton said she’s open to changing her position on the Cadillac Tax — but that the Republican plan to repeal it must pass. "Given the politics now w bipartisan support including Schumer, I'll support repeal w 'sense of the Senate'...

    Hint: They don't care about your healthcare in the least. • Impossible to argue otherwise • Pivot Toward Single Payer This morning, Dan discussed a recent Bill Clinton speech in which the former President trashed Obamacare as a “crazy” system which hurts small business. In case you haven’t seen the clips, seen below. So, if they’re admitting what conservatives said all along - that ObamaCare is an unworkable mess - you have to ask why. Here’s the answer:

    It's awful for you, but they're getting what they've been after all along. Many voters don’t remember the failed predecessor of ObamaCare. It was called HillaryCare in the early 1990s. Hillary Clinton was an unelected, non-official put in charge of a commission to design a plan to hijack the U.S. health care system. It failed when the public found out what was in it and pressured the Senate to abandon it, which they did. In 2009, President Obama, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shoved ObamaCare down the throats of the American people. They...
