    Rep. Jim Jordan said Friday that he’s pushing a clean Obamacare repeal bill in the House in an end-run move around leadership. “It’s the same exact legislation we passed 18 months ago — we all voted for, the Senate voted for. We want to bring this to the floor. Our leadership won’t do that. So the only way to go around them is to start what’s called a discharge petition,” Mr. Jordan, Ohio Republican and a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said on Fox News. Mr. Jordan said he plans to begin gathering signatures for the petition Friday, and...

    Anthem just announced it will back out of Nevada's Obamacare exchange for 2018. A major insurance provider just announced it will back out of Nevada's Obamacare exchange for 2018. Anthem said in a statement Monday it was leaving Nevada's exchange because "planning and pricing for ACA-compliant health plans has become increasingly difficult due to a shrinking and deteriorating individual market, as well as continual changes and uncertainty in federal operations, rules and guidance, including cost sharing reduction subsidies and the restoration of taxes on fully insured coverage." The company had previously backed out of 14 rural counties in the Silver...

    Sen. Charles Schumer says the Food and Drug Administration should launch a formal investigation into the health consequences of chemicals used in fast food packaging. The New York Democrat on Sunday released a letter he sent to the head of the agency asking for the investigation into phthalates, which are used in plastics to make them more flexible. Some phthalates have been linked to health issues, both developmental and reproductive. People can be exposed to phthalates if they eat or drink food that's come into contact with containers made with the chemicals. Schumer pointed out that some types of phthalates...

    Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin blasted Republicans in yet another Facebook note on Wednesday, saying they “lied their way into office” and perpetrated the “greatest hoax in modern politics.” “Here comes rationing, long waiting periods, and massive red-tape,” said Mark Levin in all caps on. “The Republicans lied their way into office in what is the greatest hoax in modern politics.” Levin’s comments came after seven Republican senators joined Democrats in voting no on a “clean repeal” of Obamacare promoted by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. on Wednesday. In the note, the famed conservative radio personality laid the...

    Why are some American progressives embracing overt anti-Semitism? Are you a Jew in Chicago who’d like to march for LGBTQ rights and gender equality? You’ll have to follow a few rules, helpfully laid out in recent weeks by the Chicago Dyke March and the Chicago SlutWalk. First, you must not carry any “Zionist displays.” What are Zionist displays? That’s for others to decide. A Star of David might be OK. But if it’s on a rainbow flag, it probably isn’t because “its connections to the oppression enacted by Israel is too strong for it to be neutral.” Second, you must...

    After 20 of the 24 Obamacare non-profit health insurance cooperatives collapsed, despite the influx of $2.4 billion in taxpayer funds, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that its trade association would also fail. The National Alliance of State Health Cooperatives (NASCHO), the Obamacare co-op health insurance trade association, has quietly closed its doors, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. NASCHO once represented as many as 24 Obamacare non-profit co-ops that were intended to compete with for-profit commercial health care insurers and perhaps even drive them out of business. The Obama administration underwrote the experiment with $2.4 billion in long-term,...

    When the sovereign states decided to create a federal government (yes, it was the states that created the federal government and not the other way around), it was not an open-ended arrangement where the states surrendered all of their powers and authority to the new entity. It was quite to the contrary. Only certain, specifically identified powers, called “enumerated powers,” were delegated to the federal government from the states — powers that the Founding Fathers believed were best performed on a national basis, duties like “provide for the common defense,” to coin money, establish uniform immigration laws, “Post Offices,” treaties...

    “We're in this room today to deliver on our promise to the American people to repeal Obamacare and to ensure that they have the health care that they need,” President Trump told Republican senators at a White House luncheon on Wednesday. “We have no choice. We have to repeal and replace Obamacare.” Trump said Republicans are “so close” to getting the job done, even without a single vote from Democrats: "The way I looked at it, we have no Democrat help. They're obstructionists. That's all they're good at is obstruction. They have no ideas. They've gone so far left, they're...

    As President Trump reminded both Democrats and their friends in the Democrat Media Complex today, Obamacare was built on a stack of lies. President Trump mentioned two of Obama’s lies, the infamous “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” and if “You like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Both were lies as millions lost insurance coverage and/or their doctors because of the 2,700-page behemoth that has grown to over 20,000 pages in tyrannical regulations. But another one of Obama’s outright lies he told perhaps more than any other, was the Shamwow promise to lower every...

    President Donald Trump laid into former President Barack Obama on Wednesday in a meeting with Senate Republicans after RINO Leader Mitch McConnell’s failure to repeal the Obamacare debacle. Not pulling any punches, the president reminded Americans of the many lies Obama told to sell Obamacare: “Obamacare was a big lie. ‘You can keep your doctor.’ Lie! ‘You can keep your plan.’ Lie! It was a direct lie from the president. Twenty-eight times he said it — 28 times. It was a lie and he knew it was. And now it is hurting this country irreparably.” {..snip..}

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif. ) said Sunday on CNN that Republicans would satisfy uneasy voters by strengthening Obamacare, but his fellow panelist Ken Cuccinelli fired back at the notion that the health care program simply needs help. "I think the people are being heard," Swalwell said on "State Of The Union" about the debate over the GOP's health care bill in the Senate. "And I wish we were amplifying these stories two years ago." Swalwell went onto say that those voices would make attempts to repeal Obamacare politically difficult. "It's the people who are coming forward saying, ‘This affects...

    As only a handful of constitutional conservatives, like Ted Cruz , Mike Lee , Rand Paul , argue for the full repeal of Obamacare, something that was promised by all Republicans for seven years, and as Democrats have no answers for disastrous Obamacare other than more government control — what destroyed the health insurance marketplace in America in the first place and caused prices and deductibles to unnecessarily skyrocket — we should be reminded that ALL involvement of the federal government in the healthcare business in any form or fashion, or redistribution schemes pushed on taxpayers under the guise of...

    I can’t imagine what he could have said to put enough shine on the current version of an Obamacare replacement bill that would persuade Senator Cruz to embrace it. The Senate needs 50 votes to get the bill to pass. They can’t rely on Democrats to help in that effort, so they have to pull all the Republican support they can muster. To date, that seems a faraway hope, as well. Senators Cruz, Rand Paul, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, and as of Friday, Dean Heller have all rejected the bill, as written. Cruz, Paul, Johnson, and Lee released this statement...

    Jerry, (GET HELP) California use to be a STATE, NOT A COUNTRY! With President Donald Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord, China and California signed an agreement Tuesday to work together on reducing emissions, as the state's governor warned that "disaster still looms" without urgent action. Gov. Jerry Brown told The Associated Press at an international clean energy conference in Beijing that Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris agreement will ultimately prove only a temporary setback. For now, he said, China, European countries and individual U.S. states will fill the gap left...

    Take yes for an answer The Democrats and the liberal media are still pushing their dishonest rhetoric about what’s not in the Republicans’ American Health Care Act, and the damage it’s supposedly going to do to people. All lies! As I wrote on Sunday, pre-existing conditions are taken care of through a high-risk pool funded to the tune of $130 billion over 10 years. But the liberal media and Democrats keep pushing the lie that they are not covered. Scare tactics 101!

    A federal appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination, the first time a federal appellate court has come to that conclusion. The decision by the full 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago comes just three weeks after a three-judge panel in Atlanta ruled the opposite, saying employers aren’t prohibited from discriminating against employees based on sexual orientation. It also comes as President Donald Trump’s administration has begun setting its own policies on LGBT rights. Late in January, the White House declared Trump would enforce an...

    A lawsuit in Seattle pits some fundamental rights against each other — it’s civil rights that ban discrimination, and property rights that allow owners to decide what to do with their homes and land. The issue is with a new law that requires landlords to rent to tenants on a “first come, first served” basis. The goal is to make sure all renters are treated equally. But the landlords who are suing say the program is a bureaucratic nightmare and unconstitutional. Critics say it’s all about the survival of the fastest, but supporters say it levels the playing field for...

    After a fierce debate between Democrats and Republicans, a bill that would force presidential candidates -- including President Donald Trump -- to release their tax returns to receive a place on New Jersey's ballot gained final legislative approval Thursday. Now it's up to Gov. Chris Christie, a longtime Trump ally and fellow Republican, to decide whether to sign the measure -- which Democrats said they introduced because Trump has repeatedly refused to make his tax returns public. Christie is widely expected to veto it. The Democratic-controlled state Assembly voted mostly along party lines, 48-26, on Thursday to pass the bill,...
