These three Texans—AIDS patient, pro-choice Democrat and Tea Party crusader—may appear to have nothing in common besides the Lone Star state. Fundamentally, however, they do.
Obamacare, like all redistributionist programs, turns morality on its head by holding need as the moral standard.
Will the doctors finally stand up for themselves then? Or will they humbly and meekly take it?
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—otherwise known as ObamaCare—is almost four years old. Despite the technical troubles, what every American should know about the law is that whatever its provisions, whatever the press propagandizes or reports, the individual has no control of, or choice in, health insurance or medicine. Not if you’re a doctor, patient […]
Congress and the president are taking over an area of our lives infinitely more challenging and complex than the management of traffic signals and supermarkets, namely our health care system.
Politicians love to play Santa Claus by handing out favors to voters, while depicting insurance companies as Scrooge when they raise insurance premiums to cover the costs of government mandates.
Like public education, public housing, and public toilets, the government’s virtual takeover of the health insurance market is doomed to fail, because government intervention in the economy is always doomed to fail.
Government involvement in medical care does not ensure better care but leads to its degradation, while making it less available and more expensive. Like Obamacare, the FDA actually threatens our health.
The Alberta medical regulator’s proposal to ban private diagnostic services is based on the evil anti-human-life philosophy of egalitarianism.
ObamaCare is America’s health care dictatorship.
If the government’s goal is equality in medical care, Obamacare will eventually achieve it: equal suffering for all.
Supporters of Obamacare speak as if refusing to fund or implement it will create a Constitutional crisis. Actually, it’s Obamacare and other laws like it that create the growing crisis with our government. Obamacare is a law that attempts to manufacture a private marketplace by government fiat—and then force citizens to take part in it. […]
The time, effort and credibility that Republicans are investing in trying to defund ObamaCare is a high risk, low yield investment.
Why don’t we just make doctors provide health care for free, if it’s a right?
Even the advocates of socialized medicine, including Obama himself, know it’s not practical.
Independence Day is our most endangered holiday. We should celebrate it while we still can. The entire concept of independence — of autonomous citizens making their own choices in the pursuit of their own happiness — is under attack. The American war for independence was not over in the 18th Century but wages on today. […]
We might take a moment to contemplate where the Affordable Care Act would now be if its major programs were to be held to actual financial sustainability before they could be implemented. In fact, one key program of Obamacare collapsed nearly two years ago. President Barack Obama approved an addition by Congress to the legislation […]
The redistribution of wealth means the redistribution from you to politicians.
Associated Press reports: Thousands of people with serious medical problems are in danger of losing coverage under President Obama’s healthcare overhaul because of cost overruns, state officials say. At risk is the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan, a transition program that’s become a lifeline for the so-called uninsurables — people with serious medical conditions who can’t […]
No argument for Obamacare’s repeal can top the simple fact that Members of Congress do not want it to apply to them. Today’s Politico reports that the House and Senate congressional leadership—both Democrats and Republicans working in cahoots with Obama Administration officials—have been secretly negotiating for months trying to find a way to exempt Members […]
