Trump Wants to Repeal and Replace Obamacare With Government Universal Healthcare

This past Sunday GOP frontrunner Donald Trump appeared on CBS’ 60 Minutes for a one-on-one interview with Scott Pelley about the state of the race and to discuss Trump’s specific positions on certain issues. The most enlightening moment came when the discussion turned to healthcare and Trump had the opportunity to excoriate Obamacare (rightly). “Obamacare’s going to be repealed and replaced. Obamacare is a disaster if you look at what’s going on with premiums where they’re up 40, 50, Read more […]

Doctor Group: Obama’s Anti-Gun Orders Violate Patient Privacy Laws

When we consider the left’s relentless crusade against our Second Amendment rights, we must further consider that more often than not, these efforts to curtail the right that protects all others have far-reaching constitutional and ethical consequences. An example of this kind of effect can be seen in the left’s recent push to restrict gun sales on people on the so-called “terrorist watchlist.” While foreign nationals are already prohibited from purchasing firearms and those convicted Read more […]

New CBO Report On Obamacare Might Give the President Heartburn

Americans who lose their doctors, deal with narrow networks, struggle to pay huge premiums with high deductibles, see their work hours reduced, and face tax penalties won’t be surprised by a new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Fox News called it the “latest blow” to health care reform. The CBO reported that the unpopular and expensive law known as Obamacare will “reduce work hours equivalent to 2 million jobs in the next decade amid a host of incentives not to work or Read more […]

UnitedHealth CEO Regrets Entering ObamaCare

The CEO of UnitedHealthcare on Tuesday said he regretted the decision to enter the ObamaCare marketplace last year, which the company says has resulted in millions of dollars in losses. “It was for us a bad decision,” UnitedHealth CEO Stephen Hemsley said at an investors’ meeting in New York, according to Bloomberg Business. UnitedHealth, the country’s largest insurer, announced last month that it would no longer advertise its ObamaCare plans over the next year and may pull out completely Read more […]

Almost Every News Outlet in America Notices ObamaCare Premiums Are About to Skyrocket

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve known since 2009 that ObamaCare was never going to “lower the average family’s premiums rates by $2,000.” That was just the lie that architects like Jonathan Gruber told you to sell their anti-constitutional boondoggle. When they say passage of the law relied upon the “ignorance of the American voter,” that’s what they’re talking about. Those who weren’t ignorant always knew that the ACA would cause rates to skyrocket, and most believe that’s exactly what Read more […]

Physicians Urged To Ask Patients About Gun Ownership During Office Health Histories

A pediatric emergency medicine physician is urging doctors to join the effort for gun control by asking about gun ownership while performing health histories on their patients. A panel titled “The Tipping Point: Activating a Public Health Movement to Address Gun Violence” was featured at the American Public Health Association (APHA)’s 2015 annual meeting in Chicago earlier in November.

HR 2232: National Mandatory Vaccination Bill Enters Congress

Alert! A Congressional bill to force mandatory vaccinations across the nation has entered the House of Representatives under the name “Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015” or HR 2232. This bill is essentially a national version of the SB277 mandatory vaccination legislation which passed in California earlier this year, with the same impossible exemption requirements. The bill, as currently written, would require all state public schools across the nation to mandate blanket vaccination of their Read more […]

Supreme Court to take a Second Look at Abortion Pill Mandate

In many circles of Christendom, there are those who would say that there should be absolutely no overlap in religion and law. In our society, you can be as religious or non-religious as you like, but you most leave those views out of the law making process. When one enters law or legislature, one must be neutral. Only our Constitution can guide us in what is right. But, we see that this is an impossibility. As men without religious conviction make more and more of our laws, we find that the Christian Read more […]

Obamacare Co-Ops Are Failing at a Rate of 50 Percent. Here’s Why.

Cooperative health insurers (or co-ops) created under a federal grant and loan program in the Affordable Care Act seem to be falling like dominoes. It started in February, when CoOportunity Health, which operated in Iowa and Nebraska, was ordered into liquidation. In July, Louisiana’s insurance department announced it was shuttering that state’s co-op. The following month brought news that Nevada’s co-op would also close. On September 25, New York ordered the shutdown of Health Republic Read more […]

New York Post: Obamacare Entering ‘Death Spiral’

ObamaCare is heading toward a death spiral. The Obama administration is having trouble selling insurance plans to healthy people. That’s a big problem: When the young and healthy don’t enroll, premiums have to be hiked to cover the costs of older, sicker people, discouraging even more young people from signing up. Last Thursday, the administration predicted enrollment for 2016 will be less than half what the Congressional Budget Office predicted in March. Despite subsidies to help with Read more […]
