Roll Call posted a fascinating article on Wednesday detailing the growing sense of concern (or perhaps it would be more accurate to call it PANIC!) that many Congressional Democrats—especially those in marginally safe to contested seats—are experiencing over the rolling catastrophe of Obamacare’s implementation. For those who opposed the passage of the law in the first place, it’s a somewhat satisfying … Read More
Allahpundit is right: this is the perfect way for Nancy Pelosi to end her tenure as Speaker of the House. Paternalistic? Check. Arrogant? Check. Detached from reality? Checky-check-check-check. And so our shameless, reckless, intrusive, imperious, and borderline-tyrannical 111th Congress slimes its way across the finish line without a hint of regret or introspection.

Quote of the year, Health Care category: It’s a bit late in the day to ask whether President Obama made a single truthful argument in favor of Obamacare.

Regardless, here’s the news that anyone with any intelligence and honesty knew was coming: Congressional Budget Office estimates released Tuesday predict the health care overhaul will likely cost about $115 billion more in discretionary spending over … Read More
Filthy, stinking, brazen liars: The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, … Read More
