“If universal coverage is the goal, inexpensive, simple catastrophic health plans will do.” Carl Schramm: How ObamaCare Rips Off the ‘Young Healthies’

“Two people who can easily obtain insurance on the individual market, despite their preexisting conditions, have to pay a lot for the health care they consume, but an amount they can afford at their income levels – but not at their expected level of retirement income. Because Obamacare provides direct subsidies from the federal fisc, and indirect subsidies from the higher premiums paid by younger people and healthier people, their rates have dropped low enough that they can now close their small business and live off of their retirement savings — at the expense of others.” Early Retirement, Courtesy of Obamacare

“So why would the government actively facilitate corruption under ObamaCare, especially at the risk of ballooning its own costs and collapsing its budget estimates?

“The truth is that a so-called “Cadillac Tax” is about to turn millions of employer-based plans into something a little closer to a “junk plan.”” CBS News: ObamaCare About to Hit Employer-Provided Insurance

“Youthful charisma, the Ivy League, career politicians, and two presidential terms may be fine in theory, but next time around can we take a needed break from what have become our presidents-as-usual?” Needed: A Different Sort of President

An interesting synopsis of how Obama is stealing our country, right before our eyes. Grand Theft Obama: The Biggest Heist in U.S. History

“With a rueful eye on the local mayoral election, my colleague Charles C. W. Cooke noted: “I’m moving out of New York City in three weeks. Good timing.” I had had similar thoughts myself, remembering my time commuting in to Buckley Towers in Manhattan from nearby Connecticut.” The Fat Cats’ Veto

“Voting patterns reflect how women’s incentives change with their marital status.” Pick One: Marriage Culture Or Government Culture

Blue prints. “Yet in Virginia’s 34th District, just outside Washington, a very conservative delegate was able to run between 8 and 18 points ahead of Cuccinelli and win. And that was a district that went for Tim Kaine for senator and Barack Obama just a year ago. Barbara Comstock is as conservative as any right-winger could desire — pro-free enterprise, pro-life and pro-Second Amendment. Her opponent, Kathleen Murphy, a doctrinaire liberal, was supported by the unions, Michael Bloomberg, NARAL and Planned Parenthood. If conservatives want to win elections and not just preen about their ideological purity, they should study Comstock.” Primer From a Conservative Winner

With Obamacare what mattered is that national healthcare reform be associated with him; the details, as we now painfully learn, are unimportant. With Iran, it matters little if the mullahs ultimately have nuclear weapons or not, only that President Obama himself be perceived as the one who has solved the situation.” How Can We Possibly Trust Obama on Iran?
