House Freedom Caucus and GOP establishment in Obamacare smackdown

For several years now under the feckless leadership of Mitch McConnell, the GOP promise to repeal Obamacare “root and branch” has proven to be nothing more than another election year lie designed to trick Conservatives into voting for Republicans. One…

GOP: Obamacare repeal and replace is now retreat and repair

When the members of the new GOP-controlled 115th Congress were sworn-in last month, it included many of the old faces from the old GOP-controlled 114th Congress, along with their old feckless leadership. One area where this is most evident is…

GOP “retreat” on Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood

Following an election where the American people gave the repugnant (oops, I mean Republican) party full control of Washington, D.C., the invertebrate GOP held their annual “retreat”–a word that has historically carried more than one meaning when discussing the party…

Are there any conservatives left in politics?

With Republicans continuing to echo Democrat talking points and premises on health care and many other issues, Daniel asks an unsettling question in this episode of The Conservative Conscience: Are there any conservatives left in politics?

Obamacare and Trumpcare – Same song, different verse

Do you remember when Barack Obama said the following words when he was promoting the Affordable Care Act to the American people? We’re going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t…

Trump and GOP throw Obamacare repeal under the bus

While Russian hacking–or not hacking according to Donald Trump–continues to dominate the news cycle, the GOP leaders in Congress have teamed up with the Trump administration to sweep the promise to repeal Obamacare “root and branch” on “day one” under…

GOP kneels to Trumpism and keeps most of Obamacare

In my commentary yesterday I referenced a piece by Steve Deace at Conservative Review, and I quoted the talk radio host about how, in post-conservative America, we would see “everyone of our conservative heroes … bow the knee to Trumpism,…

Liberals + Abortion + LGBT = Sexual Totalitarianism

As 2016 was winding down, and Donald Trump was making headlines with late-night tweets confirming his bromance with Vladimir Putin and hatred for his “enemies” who didn’t vote for him, the Liberal loons in California were busy passing a law…

Gov. Dayton-GOP fight looming

It isn’t a secret that there’s a major fight looming between Gov. Dayton and Republican leadership on the issue of health care. I’ve written about the difference in the details between Gov. Dayton’s proposal and the Republicans’ proposal before. (Here’s one of the posts.) Saying that the difference between Gov. Dayton’s proposal and the Republicans’ […]

Obama isn’t leaving the stage

True to his character (or lack thereof?), President Obama promised that he won’t leave the world stage after PEOTUS Donald Trump is sworn in at noon on Jan. 20,2017. This isn’t even slightly surprising. President Obama’s legacy requires tons of spin because it’s such a pathetic legacy on multiple fronts. The ABACA (Anything But Affordable […]

Dishonest Democratic centrists

Prior to this op-ed, I thought that the Democrats most prone to delusion lived in fever swamps with Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi and Babs Boxer as neighbors. Thanks to Stan Greenberg’s op-ed, I have to consider the possibility that the entire Democratic Party is nuts. Greenberg’s op-ed starts by saying “President Obama will be remembered […]

Such a Conservative Cabinet?

In yesterday’s post, Jessica was addressing the malaise that so many of us felt under Obama. That feeling that the world was going to hell in a handcart. I shared it, of course, and for some reason, Trump’s election has lightened it. That is not to say that Trump is really a conservative, nothing much in his […]

Steny Hoyer, Pro-ACA spinmeister

It isn’t surprising that Steny Hoyer is pro-Obamacare. That’s expected. Still, it’s disappointing that he’d write this dishonest op-ed on the subject. One of the claims Hoyer makes is “Lost in the ongoing and divisive political rhetoric about Obamacare during this election season has been its record of success. Since its full implementation in 2014, […]

Engineering Club Sensible

By outlook, if not degree, I’m an engineer. My basic question is always, “Will it work, as designed, and can we build and run it on budget (or below)?” As far as I’m concerned, it’s what built the world we live in. It has nothing whatsoever to do with good intentions, it has much indeed […]

Obamacare will transition

Sen. John Barrasso is one of the experts on health care in the Senate. This past week, Sen. Barrasso delivered this speech on the Senate floor. The most important part of Sen. Barrasso’s speech came when he said “First of all, nobody is talking about taking people off of insurance without a replacement plan in […]

Democrats re-elect a loser

If I got paid $10 for each article I’ve read throughout the years that talked about Nancy Pelosi’s fundraising abilities, I’d be rich. This article mentions it again by saying “Few can match Pelosi as a fundraiser. She is herself the ninth wealthiest member of Congress, a resident of ‘billionaires’ row,’ and is tapped into […]

Pro-Obamacare cheerleading

This Miami Herald editorial is a fantastic example of the Agenda Media pretending to be thoughtful journalists and policy experts. I’ll be blunt. The Miami Herald is neither. They’re a pro-Obamacare cheerleader. That was obvious when they said “On the one hand, Republicans in Congress want to scrap Obamacare, simple as that. On the other, […]

Bipartisanship litmus test

After Donald Trump’s victory, there’s been a noticeable outbreak of bipartisanship from red-state Democratic senators. For instance, “North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) is ready to work with Republicans on legislation to invest in ‘clean coal’ technologies. More broadly, she says she’s willing to work across the aisle on regulatory reform. ‘My priority is standing […]
