The Obamacare Taxes Dividing Republicans

Republicans have coalesced around a strategy for repealing Obamacare using a budget tool called reconciliation. But a divide has emerged among some Republican senators who, splitting from their conservative colleagues, believe they should delay a repeal of Obamacare’s taxes until a replacement plan is implemented. On one side of the debate are Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, and Susan Collins of Maine who would like to leave in place the taxes—levied on insurers, medical device companies, employers, and individuals—included in Obamacare. The revenue streams pay for Obamacare’s subsidies, which extend to Americans purchasing coverage on the federal and state-run exchanges, and the senators say the taxes are necessary to fund the subsidies further during a two- or three-year transition period after repealing Obamacare.

Obama Health Secretary’s Speech Ignores the Consequences of Obamacare

On Monday, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell gave a speech in support of Obamacare proclaiming the benefits of Obamacare and cautioning against repealing and replacing the law, as Congress has promised to do. Unsurprisingly, she left out some critical details from her list of Obamacare “benefits.” Regarding insurance coverage, Burwell said: On access, the uninsured rate has dropped below 9 percent—the lowest rate ever in our nation. And that’s partly due to the growth in the marketplaces … It’s also due to 31 states and D.C. that have expanded their Medicaid program. But Burwell’s uninsured figure isn’t very precise because it is based on survey data rather than actual coverage data. The Heritage Foundation looked at the actual net gain in insurance coverage from the first two years of Obamacare’s full implementation … Read entire article »

Popular NY Restaurant Shuts Its Doors, Blames ‘Suffocating’ Government Regulations

A popular New York City restaurant is closing its doors after 25 years because of what the owners call a stifling regulatory environment that treats the restaurant as a “cash machine.” China Fun, a Chinese restaurant in Manhattan, announced its Jan. 3 closure because of increases in minimum wage and a city atmosphere that treats “mom-and-pop” eateries like cash cows to pay for all the ills of society, Albert Wu told reporters. Wu is a representative of China Fun. “The climate for small businesses like ours in New York have become such that it’s difficult to justify taking risks and running—never mind starting—a legitimate mom-and-pop business,” read a letter posted by the owners in the Chinese restaurant’s front door. Wu, whose parents Dorothea and Felix have owned the eatery since its inception two decades ago, said … Read entire article »

Sessions Is a Highly Qualified Pick for Attorney General

Thomas Jefferson, in his first inaugural address as president in 1801, deemed “equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political” one of the essential principles of our government. President-elect Donald Trump has demonstrated his intent to uphold this principle by nominating Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., to serve as attorney general. In a nation of over 300 million people, there is no other individual more qualified or capable of upholding Jefferson’s vision of the federal justice system than Sessions. As a four-term member of the Senate, Sessions has a distinguished record on the Judiciary Committee and has extensive experience within the federal judiciary as assistant U.S. attorney and U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama. He also has experience at the state level as former … Read entire article »

Why Has The White House Suddenly Released A Strategy For Dealing With The Threat Of A Catastrophic Meteor Impact?

Does the White House know something that the rest of us do not? As the Obama administration draws to a close, the White House has suddenly released a major document that details a multi-pronged strategy for dealing with the threat of a catastrophic meteor impact.

Why Are Wal-Mart And Boeing Laying Off Workers If The U.S. Economy Is In Good Shape?

Why Are Wal-Mart And Boeing Laying Off Workers If The U.S. Economy Is In Good Shape?

The stock market has been on quite a roll in recent weeks, but signs of trouble continue to plague the real economy.  Earlier this week, I talked about the “retail apocalypse” that is sweeping America.  Major retail chains such as Sears and Macy’s are closing stores and laying off workers, but I didn’t think that Wal-Mart would be feeling the pain as well.  Unfortunately, that is precisely what is happening.  USA Today is reporting that … Read entire article »
