    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday shot back against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) comments that Democrats aren't "running on any platform of raising taxes." Sanders said the U.S. is spending "far more than other countries on healthcare." "My proposal will save middle-class families thousands of dollars a year on their healthcare costs. Most people tell me, 'Yes, they would be happy to pay $1,000 more in taxes if they're paying $5,000 less in healthcare premiums,' " he said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Sanders said the U.S. needs to follow every other major country in controlling healthcare...

    Democrats are not on board with the tax hikes Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has proposed to pay for his single-payer healthcare proposal, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday. "We're not running on any platform of raising taxes," Pelosi said during a press briefing to launch the Democrats' yearly issues conference in Baltimore, Md. "We do want to have a fairer tax system, and... we hope that we can do that this year." Sanders on Monday acknowledged that his "Medicare-for-all" healthcare plan would require tax hikes on the middle class. “We will raise taxes, yes we will,” Sanders...

He specifically talked about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and asserted he was "close" to Sen.

Couldn't have said it better myself. It's clear Trump puts a high priority on his ability to cut deals with people and that's just not something I'm looking for in a candidate....

Yet, it's a piece of Bizarro Theater that captures how abortion has become the lynchpin for the Democratic Party.

    Michael Chadwick is all for Obamacare insurance - up to a point. The 32-year old Manhattan realtor was uninsured in his late twenties, and he was optimistic when he initially signed up for coverage three years ago. Then, his income changed. "I couldn't keep up with the payments, so I had no health insurance for the remainder of 2014," Chadwick explained to CNBC. He had a better year in 2015, and he's hopeful he'll be able to maintain his health coverage again this year. Still, he expressed frustration with the law's mechanics.

    People who don't buy health insurance next year will face a penalty of at least $695, a price that is being linked to a jump in ObamaCare sign-ups, particularly among people under 35 years old. The administration said Tuesday that 8.2 million people have signed up so far, compared to 6.4 million at this point last year. That includes 2.1 million people under age 35 - nearly double the number of young people enrolled during the same period last year. Administration officials touting the numbers have pounded home the message that ObamaCare coverage is affordable in explaining the rush of...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explained her support for the $1.2 trillion spending bill that the Republican Congress passed yesterday and President Obama signed into law by pointing out to reporters that the Republicans "were willing to concede so much" to get the bill passed. The bill, Pelosi noted, did not stop funding of Planned Parenthood, and the Republicans "had to take out their provisions to destroy ACA"--the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare. Pelosi argued that the Republican leaders were so intent on getting a provision to allow exports of U.S. crude oil that they were "willing to give up...

    After two years of genteel coaxing of millions of Americans to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration has begun to turn up the heat with the threat of a sharp increase in tax penalties and other sanctions. While many people found it far less expensive to pay a penalty than to enroll in a new government-subsidized health care plan, they will be in for a rude awakening if they try that again. In fact, in some ways it will be cheaper to purchase one of the more modest insurance plans than to pay...

    Some Democrats are raising concerns that an ObamaCare tax trade-off taking shape in Congress this week could whet the appetite of other industries looking to chip away at the law. House and Senate leaders say they are inching closer to a year-end tax package - likely wrapped into the governing spending bill - that would pause both the healthcare law's "Cadillac tax" and its medical device tax for two years. Delaying the taxes would deliver a major win to labor groups and the medical device industry, respectively, after years of heavy lobbying against the provisions. And even as most supporters...

    Under the Affordable Care Act, young adults are allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance up to age 26. Since people generally like the idea of helping their own children avoid sickness and financial ruin, this has been one of the law's more popular features. But how exactly has the rule changed life for American twentysomethings? According to one new study, it seems to have given them a bit more leeway to bum around and find themselves - which is just about what you'd expect to happen when getting a job isn't a prerequisite for getting insurance.

    How dare the Obama administration bail out insurance companies with our money in order to hide ObamaCare's failures. Thursday, just hours after giant insurer UnitedHealthcare said it's losing money selling ObamaCare plans and will likely exit the health exchanges next year, the Obama administration quietly promised to bail out insurers for their losses - using your money. Nearly all insurers are bleeding red ink trying to sell the unworkable plans. Without a bailout, more insurers will abandon ObamaCare, pushing it closer to its demise. A bailout would benefit insurers and the Democratic Party, which is desperate to cover up the...

    It wasn't very long ago that President Obama would jeer at Republicans for the many congressional votes they had taken to amend or repeal his healthcare law. But, much though he loves to jeer - his shameful and unpresidential fit of pique about GOP concerns on terrorists camouflaged as refugees, was a recent example - the president may soon beg them for a few more such votes. Because as its sixth birthday approaches, his health insurance law is in critical condition. The latest bad Obamacare news came on Thursday, when America's largest insurer had to tell Wall Street that it...

Now the patients either have to find new insurers and doctors or pay higher out-of-pocket costs for extended care at Sloan. State regulators are removing Health Republic Insurance of New York from the ObamaCare exchange as of Nov. 30 because the company is gushing red ink - losing more than $130 million in 18 months.

    **SNIP** Obamacare's employer mandate, which requires companies to provide affordable health insurance to their workers or pay fines, will take full effect next year. Currently, only firms with 100 or more workers had to comply with the rule. But starting Jan. 1, 2016, businesses with 50 or more full-time workers will have to furnish coverage for at least 95 percent of their employees. This mandate will cost companies dearly. It requires them to cover employees' adult children up to age 26. What's more, an employee's share of the premium can't amount to more than 9.5 percent of his or her...

    Democrats are trying to shut down the Benghazi investigative committee two weeks before the panel is scheduled to hear testimony, saying a top House Republican unwittingly exposed the political goals of the long-running probe. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican who is the front-runner to be the next House Speaker, said in an interview this week that the committee, formed to probe the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that killed four Americans, has been worth it because it exposed former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintons email practices. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while the probe should be...

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is bashing House Republicans plans to create a select committee focused on investigating Planned Parenthood after the release of controversial videos about the groups handling of fetal tissue. The Speakers resignation has not yet broken Republicans fevered obsession with shutting down government at the expense of womens health, she said in a statement Saturday, noting Fridays news that Speaker John Boehner will depart after October. Make no mistake: House Republicans have renewed their war on women's health Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Committee fixated on dismantling womens health.

    WASHINGTON Hours after House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would be resigning from Congress, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz added fuel to the fire by saying hed heard early reports that Boehner cut a deal with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to continue funding some of President Barack Obamas most controversial measures. I will say, the early reports are discouraging. If it is correct that the speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to...
  • John Boehner Caught Conspiring With Nancy Pelosi

    Fellow Conservative, John Boehners days are numbered. The bronze and quick-to-cry Speaker of the House has been put on notice. American conservatives arent going to take it anymore. This isnt really news. Weve known for weeks that a few dozen brave Conservatives were going to try to over throw Boehner. But heres what we didnt know last week: Democrats have agreed to save Boehner. Thats right, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have agreed to vote with Boehner not only to save Planned Parenthoods funding, but also to save John Boehners job. You know Boehners a RINO when even the Democrats...

    Catholic Culture ^ | September 22, 2015 | Phil Lawler
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi styles herself as a devout Catholic, and the New York Times happily promotes that myth with a puff piece whose title drives home the editorial point: In Pelosi, Strong Catholic Faith and Abortion Rights Coexist. But it’s Pelosi herself who gives the game away, with a telling quotation: The church has their position, and we have ours, which is that a woman has free will given to her by God. Taken by itself, that sentence is a muddled non sequitur. The Church teaches that women have free will given by God. The topic is abortion,...

    Months after Judicial Watch exposed massive security risks with the governments healthcare.gov website, afederal audit reveals that the public employees responsible for overseeing the disastrous Obamacare site were not properly trained, failed to keep adequate records and stood by as delays mounted to millions over the original contract costs.

    Nancy Pelosi is Republicans for their efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood. She seems to think supporters of defunding the abortion company dont understand the basics of sex. The Hill reports that Pelosi told reporters, This is more than Planned Parenthood. Its about women, its about reproductive freedom, its about respect for womens judgment about the sizing and timing of their families. How dare they be so disrespectful to women? How dare they be so disregarding of womens health issues. She added that she thinks Republicans needs to learn more about the birds and the bees. She said, Since I have...
