Old and Busted: Death Panels. New Hotness: Death Doctors

You might remember that Sarah Palin was raked over the coals in 2009 for using the phrase “Death Panels” to describe the “Advanced Care Planning Consultations” that were proposed in Obamacare. As the public clamor against the measure mounted, the Democrats swore up and down that the Death Panels didn’t exist, then removed the non-existent […]

Official figures show that a record 13,500 patients fell victim to some form of nutritional deficiency last year. Most are frail and elderly pensioners who are simply ‘left to starve’ because they are too weak to feed themselves. […]

If Eric Cantor wants to be in the 2012 Presidential mix, he’s going to have to stop this silliness: “What I think you will see us do is push for repeal of the health care bill and at the same time contemporaneously submit our replacement bill,” Cantor told students during a townhall event at American […]

It certainly didn’t take long for key players in the soon-to-be Republican majority in the House to start wandering off in their own directions. Lamar Smith, the Texan who will likely take over the House Judiciary Committee is all ready to launch a few investigations at the Obama administration. You know just how highly “investigate […]

How bad is Obamacare for Democrats? This bad. Nearly half (48 percent) of all independent voters said that even if a candidate otherwise held perfect views (in the eyes of the voter) — even if they “agreed with him on all other issues” (italics added) — they still couldn’t vote for him “if [they] disagreed […]

Remember those bygone days of yore when Democrats were actually proud of their votes for government-run health care, when their votes to stick us in their ridiculously expensive totalitarian fantasy was an “act of patriotism”? Well, now that Obamacare is triggering rate hikes from health insurers and the government’s own Medicare and Medicaid actuary saying […]

Game on! Virginia’s lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s health care reform law cleared its first legal hurdle Monday as a federal judge ruled the law raises a host of complex constitutional issues. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson’s decision stemmed from Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s claims that Congress exceeded its authority under the Constitution’s Commerce […]
