Obamacare Rate Hikes: Incompetence or Sabotage?

Newt Gingrich, Real Clear Politics

Whether intentional or not, the conclusion is inescapable: President Obama’s Department of Health & Human Services has pushed the individual market into a death spiral.  Insurers are fleeing the marketplace and premiums are expected to spike dramatically (the average proposed increase for 2017 is 24 percent).

Hillary Clinton goes silent on Obamacare

Byron York, Washington Examiner

A look at transcripts of Clinton stump speeches since she kicked off the general election campaign on Labor Day finds the Democratic candidate almost never talks about Obamacare. She doesn't promise to expand it. She doesn't promise to protect it. She doesn't extol its benefits. She just doesn't mention it.

Hillary Clinton’s America: More Debt, More Regulation and Leftist Courts

Our economy has not seen a single year of growth above 3 percent while President Barack Obama has been in office. The reasons why our economy is still struggling are because our already government taxes and spends far too much, and in Clinton’s America, we can expect more of the same.

Toss Personality. Use These Three Things To Judge Trump Versus Hillary

Jeffrey H. Anderson, The Federalist

This election is about more than manners or a battle of personalities. The stakes go far beyond that. Much depends on whether the next president will do the following three things: one, Preserve the Constitution; two, Restore our borders; and three, Repeal Obamacare.

What’s More Depressing: Hillary’s Campaign Or The Thought Of Her As President?

The vision of the future offered by Mrs. Clinton is more like one of the more depressing chapters in Ayn Rand’s classic novel Atlas Shrugged than “Morning in America.” But what's even more depressing is that when Donald Trump and his supporters are correct about the threats facing our country, the establishment media is so obsessed with defeating Trump that they attack him or claim he is jumping to conclusions when he is right.

Hillary’s Worst Health Problem May Be Obamacare

David Catron, The American Spectator

If Trump hangs on to all the states Romney won and beats Hillary in a few of the battleground states, he will be the next President. And Obamacare may well help him accomplish this feat. Trump has pledged to repeal the unpopular “reform” law while Clinton still defends it. This distinction will become particularly poignant to swing state voters whose double-digit premium hikes hit just as they are deciding for whom to cast their November ballots.

Next President Faces Possible Obamacare Meltdown

Sarah Ferris, The Hill

The incoming administration will take office just as the latest ObamaCare enrollment tally comes in, delivering a potentially crucial verdict about the still-shaky healthcare marketplaces. The fourth ObamaCare signup period begins about one week before Election Day, and it will end about one week before inauguration on Jan. 20. After mounting complaints from big insurers about losing money this year, the results could serve as a kind of judgment day for ObamaCare, experts say.

Conservative opposition forces Corker out of Trump Veepstakes

As soon as conservatives such as Richard Viguerie started speaking out against Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s potential candidacy, the establishment ran in the other direction. Corker’s exit is great news for Trump and improves his prospects of uniting and exciting conservatives going into the Republican National Convention.

Choosing Bob Corker as VP Would Crash Trump’s Campaign

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

If there’s one thing worse than ignoring the conservative agenda, it is claiming to support it and then betraying it, and in that regard Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee stands alone in infamy among those suggested as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. I urge all of my conservative friends to let Donald Trump know that we conservatives believe choosing Bob Corker as his running mate would crash Trump’s campaign and that it is time to just say NO to Bob Corker for Vice President.

The Corruption of the Supreme Court Democrats

It was clear from yesterday’s hearings that the Democratic appointees to the Supreme Court do not believe the Constitution limits the President’s executive power, as long as there’s a Democrat in the White House.

More Obama Lawlessness On Obamacare

Twelve of the 23 nonprofit health insurers, which received a total of $1.2 billion in federal loans under the Consumer Oriented and Operated Plan (CO-OP) program, are either out of business or slated to collapse at the end of 2016. And now it looks like Obama is illegally propping them up.

Trump busted: Video shows he blatantly lied on healthcare in debate

Philip Klein, Washington Examiner

Donald Trump claimed during Thursday's Republican debate that he never said that government should pay for everybody to be covered by healthcare, but that's exactly what he said in a "60 Minutes" interview last fall.

Cruz: 'If I'm Elected President, We will Repeal Every Word of Obamacare'

Susan Jones, CNS News

Sen. Ted Cruz says he would "repeal every word of Obamacare" and replace it with a three-point plan that is "personal, portable and affordable." It was one of the highlight moments of Thursday night’s debate.

New Poll: Conservatives Want Ryan Removed Following Budget Betrayal

Conservatives see the “compromise” spending bill crafted by Speaker Paul Ryan as a surrender to President Obama, according to a new poll conducted by FedUp PAC.  A huge majority wants the House to “remove Ryan and install a speaker who will fight Obama down the line.” Please watch our free "message from the grassroots" video and then forward it to your friends to let the Republican establishment know what you think about their complete surrender to Obama.

Democrats' problem: Americans have little faith in government

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

The Republican party certainly has its problems: a chaotic presidential race, a despised congressional party, unpopularity among the rapidly growing number of non-whites. But the Democratic party has its problems as well. One of them is the fact that the two signature policies of Barack Obama—the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, the nuclear agreement with Iran—are unpopular with most voters.

11 Days to Save America: Defund Obama’s Disastrous Policies or be Complicit in the Destruction of Our Country

We have 11 days to stop the funding of Obama’s priorities; it is time to tell Republicans in Congress that we demand an end to the “show votes” and that instead of giving Obama a blank check for the final year of his administration they must exercise the power the Constitution gave them to stand as a check against Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

Compassion, Thy Name Is Theft

If government would stop dragging people down by their wallets, then those poor victims might just be able to pull themselves up by the boot straps.

Obamacare bill pits conservatives against each other

Paige Winfield Cunningham, Washington Examiner

The dissension among groups that are usually aligned is putting Republicans between a rock and a hard place, and they now must choose which ones to please and which to anger when it comes to a budget reconciliation bill the Senate will soon consider.

Levin: Why we don’t trust the GOP establishment

Chris Pandolfo, Conservative Review

As Levin pointed out, if Republicans want conservatives’ trust and votes, they’ll need to earn them. That starts with using budget reconciliation to fully repeal Obamacare like the GOP promised.

Establishment Republicans Walking Away From Full Obamacare Repeal

A one sentence repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation bill should be an easy call for Republicans. They have the majority, they can ignore the recommendation of the Senate Parliamentarian if it goes against them, let the Senate vote on a favorable interpretation of the rules and forge forward – but that requires a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply among establishment Republican “leaders” in Congress.
