    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...

    When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, was enacted, Americans were promised a healthcare system in which insurance companies would be held accountable and patients would have access to affordable care. Six years later, however, the reality has proven to be quite different-a plan that was supposed to mend our nation's fractured healthcare system has driven up healthcare costs, decreased market competition, and ultimately harmed patients. Last week, UnitedHealth--the nation's largest health insurer--announced that it expects to lose more than $500 million through plans they offered under the ACA in 2016. Just yesterday, Anthem...

    VINTON, Iowa, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton has been taking increasing credit for the Affordable Care Act in a bid to discredit the healthcare policy of opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders. At a campaign stop Thursday in Vinton, Iowa, she told supporters: "It was called Hillarycare before it was called Obamacare. I don't want to start over again, I don't want to rip up this accomplishment and begin this contentious debate all over again." **SNIP** By contrast, the healthcare reform plan put forward by Clinton's husband in 1993 was far more overreaching than the Affordable Care Act, and in fact...

    Gee, Hillary. Where the eff have YOU been the past 5 years? At a town hall meeting in Iowa City, Iowa Hillary Clinton was asked by a supporter about companies moving to a mostly part-time workforce and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Clinton said that companies are going to a mostly part-time workforce because of restrictions in Obamacare. “You know, we’ve got to change that because we have built in some unfortunate incentives that discourage full-time employment,” Clinton said. So basically, you just dissed Obama, genius woman.

    The Fiscal Times ^ | 10 Dec, 2015 | Edward Morrissey
    Democrats gained the political muscle to push the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through Congress on three basic arguments. First, they argued that the United States had too many uninsured people, with estimates ranging from 30 million to 45 million. Second, the rise in costs for health care outstripped inflation, and the market required an intervention that would bend the cost curve downward. Third, Democrats claimed that insurance companies made too much profit and shorted most consumers on care, while those with generous health plans - so-called "Cadillac plans" - drove up utilization rates and costs for everyone else.

    WTVR CBS ^ | October 2, 2015 | CNN
    NEW YORK — A key federal program designed to cushion health insurers’ risks in the Obamacare exchanges has a massive shortfall, which could throw some insurers into financial turmoil. Insurers requested $2.87 billion in so-called “risk corridors” payments for 2014, but will only receive $362 million, or 12.6%, said the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which oversees Obamacare. The risk corridors program’s goal is to help insurers transition into the individual exchanges, which opened in 2014. Insurers had a tough time setting premiums since they didn’t know how sick their new customers would be. Under the three-year program, insurers...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has long been an outspoken opponent of the Affordable Care Act. One of her main concerns about the law had to do with its so-called “death panels,” which have been summarily dismissed by the left and it allies in the media — but which were just confirmed by the administration to in fact exist. Though “death panels” may be something of a misnomer, it specifically refers to the use of taxpayer funds for reimbursement of “end-of-life” care and counseling mandated by Obamacare, along with the inevitable healthcare rationing that will come about due to government...

    So the Supreme Court has upheld the subsidies and taxes under Obamacare in states that did not establish exchanges, despite the text of the law requiring that those subsidies and taxes apply to states that established exchanges. This is not very surprising. We have not been publishing or writing much about the King v. Burwell because I was confident – I thought it was a 1 in 5 shot, and I believe Michael Cannon thought the same – that SCOTUS would uphold the law no matter the facts of the case.

    When it became obvious a couple of years ago that Obamacare would accelerate health care inflation, the law’s boosters began claiming that cost control was never its primary goal. PPACA’s promoters had previously promised that it would reduce annual health care expenses by $2,500 per family while improving access and quality of care. But the facts forced them to abandon that pledge and adopt a safer party line. As expressed by the New York Times, the new story goes thus: “At its most basic level, the Affordable Care Act was intended to reduce the number of Americans without health insurance.”...

Companies with more than 100 full-time workers must offer affordable health insurance to at least 70% of their staff. This "employer mandate" was supposed to take effect in 2014, but the Obama administration delayed it to this year. And those that don't comply face hefty penalties. Companies will be fined if they don't offer coverage and even just one of their workers gets subsidized insurance on an Obamacare individual exchange. For 2015, the fine is $174 a month times the number of full-time employees (minus 80...

"If you don't have the healthy young people involved, ... Obamacare cannot function. It's going to require a huge infusion of tax dollars or huge cuts." One of the cornerstones of the new health-care law is that healthy young people will pay for medical insurance that they...

    President Barack Obama and loyal Democrats once embraced the term Obamacare to sell the American people on health care reform. Not anymore. With the president’s approval ratings at record lows, a broken website and Obama under fire for his pledge that people could keep their plans, the “Affordable Care Act” has returned.

    Full title: Obama flubs during health care conference call with community organizers, claims 'more than 100 MILLION Americans' have enrolled President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of progressive volunteers on Monday evening that 'more than 100 million Americans' – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act. And at a time when his signature legislative initiative's website has made the White House the butt of jokes, the website hosting the conference call was plagued with its own connection errors and other malfunctions. A weary-sounding Obama made...

    In what should be considered a shameful admission, Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand admitted on ABC’s This Week that all democrats knew that Obama was lying when he fraudulently repeated over 30 times that, “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it, period.”

    It won’t take too long for Hillary to begin running as the “experienced” candidate who blends liberalism with policy savvy. For example, you wouldn’t catch her pitching HillaryCare by promising something as absurd as “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Except that of course she did. CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO When Obama and every other Democrat began making the same promise to the country, they weren’t doing it impulsively. Like every talking point, e.g. “investing” for spending, they were reciting pollster-tested rhetoric that was supposed to make Americans feel comfortable with what they had...

    Per the Obamacare Web Disaster: Many of you know I develop websites just like this for a living. It's what I do.I am here to tell you, given three years that they were given, if I had the following team: One artistic Design person, One skilled DBA, one skilled Security guy, one Web/Data integration specialist, three skilled developers (2 on .NET and one on jQuery), one Business Analyst who knew the legislation, and one Policies and Procedures person (for the ATO and C&A certifications and documentation) and me as Architect, I could have had this thing deployable and humming along...

    It was Hillary Clinton that originally coined the now- problematic “like your plan, keep your plan” talking point that Obama relied on during his fight to push Obamacare through Congress....a phrase that also helped him get reelected. Hillary's 2007 campaign website was unearthed by America Rising. America's Rising found written on the website under "HILLARYCARE"---Hillary’s American Health Choices Plan---the ruinous phrase: “if you have a plan you like, you keep it.” The 2016 Clinton camp has been distancing itself from Obamacare as the problems associated with his failing govt healthcare plan become more apparent to the American people. With 2016...

    Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky restated his position on Tuesday that the attack on the United States compound in Benghazi–and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response–should prohibit her from becoming president. Paul, who has long been outspoken about the terrorist attack, told cadets at The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, that the commander-in-chief should never be unwilling to send troops to protect the United States’ diplomatic missions. “Her failure to provide our ambassador and his mission with adequate security should preclude Hillary Clinton from ever holding high office ever again,” he said.
