Republican Congresswoman Asks For Obamacare Horror Stories; Opposite Happens

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) slammed the Affordable Care Act on Facebook on the fifth anniversary of President Obama signing it into law. She asked constituents to share their Obamacare horror stories but the response was not what she expected. Rodgers wrote, “This week marks the 5th anniversary of #Obamacare being signed into law. Whether […]

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is a master at what Al Franken used to call “weasel words” — talking points that are carefully constructed to sound legitimate but really aren’t at all. Come to think of it, Stephen Colbert famously referred to this sort of thing as “truthiness.” Cruz is especially on his game when the […]

On one hand, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) signing up for an Obamacare health insurance policy is fantastic news. As we discussed yesterday, Cruz had a number of options at his disposal after losing his health insurance coverage due to his wife taking a leave of absence from Goldman Sachs. And no, he isn’t required to […]

Arguably the biggest detractor of Obamacare in the Senate, the person who most would like to get rid of it, will soon be a consumer. “We’ll be getting new health insurance and we’ll presumably do it through my job with the Senate, and so we’ll be on the federal exchange with millions of others on […]

That job-killing Obamacare is even worse than it’s intelligent and insightful critics like Ted Cruz ever thought possible, according to a new Bloomberg news report. According to Bloomberg, this anti-American, job-destroying, baby-Jesus hating tax increase that dares to give layabouts and welfare queens free lobster healthcare so they don’t die like Jesus intended has employed […]

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign in auspicious fashion Monday by announcing his bid at religious wingnut Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, and promptly having TedCtuz.com hijacked by supporters of President Obama’s immigration reform. At Monday’s White House daily briefing, reporters tried gamely to get Press Secretary Josh Earnest to weigh in […]

Obamacare is redefining how you spell “success.” And while it’s far from perfect, what it’s achieved has been needed for a long time. It seems there’s a lot of good news about the act lately. A number of non-partisan budget analyses, including ones carried out by the Congressional Budget Office, have consistently proven that the […]

Rush Limbaugh said five years ago that he’d move leave the country if, five years down the road Obamacare had been implemented. Well, it’s party time. Speaking to a caller who expressed concerns about the impact of Obamacare on the U.S. healthcare system, Limbaugh said, “If this passes and it’s five years from now and […]

Make sure you keep your arguments consistent, people! In 2012, the Supreme Court declared that Congress had put “a gun to the head” of states by pressuring them to expand Medicaid, and it said that such “economic dragooning” of the states violated federalism principles embedded in the Constitution. Now, in a separate case, comments by […]

The backlash could be extremely damaging to the GOP. A plaintiff victory would bring Republicans the closest to repealing the Affordable Care Act. But the party has begun to fret about the fallout from King v. Burwell, fearing the sudden loss of subsidies could put pressure on lawmakers and governors to restore them. The loss of […]
