More demeaning ObamaCare advertising

If you thought the infamous "brosurance" ad for ObamaCare was pathetic and insulting, you ain't seen nothing yet.  I see John Nolte's got images of the latest targeted advertising posted.  It's mind-boggling.  The stunned reaction I've seen on social media boils down to questions about whether it's more outrageous that the commissars view their subjects this way, or that their subjects see themselves like this.  In other words, is it a bigger scandal that this approach to lure "young invincibles" of the female persuasion is being tried... or that it might work?

ObamaCare navigators help applicants commit fraud

Inevitably, the undercover cameras of Project Veritas made their way into an ObamaCare "navigator" operation, and inevitably they found what they were looking for: helpful staffers cheerfully willing to advise people to lie on their applications, concealing income and lifestyle choices so they would get higher subsidies and lower premiums.  If you thought the billion-dollar fraud scandals rocking programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit and "free" cell phones were shocking, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Debbie Downer and the undying narrative

Some merriment has been directed at DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz claiming that ObamaCare is a big net positive which Democrats will aggressively run on in 2014.  There's always the chance they'll be able to make a successful pitch to the heavily-subsidized government-designated "winners" in this imploding redistribution scheme, but DWS' stated optimism is tempered by her insistence on using the Orwellian phrase "transition letters" to describe the millions of ObamaCare insurance cancellations, which she was pretending were non-existent just a few days ago.  Meanwhile, the rest of her Party is doing its finest impression of rats leaping away from a sinking ship.

Big Government will never face the bunco squad

I've been saying since the outset of the ObamaCrash that if Barack Obama were a private-sector CEO - a comparison he loves to make, when he thinks it flatters him - he'd be under arrest, facing fraud charges that would financially destroy him, and put him behind bars for decades.  ObamaCare is 100 percent pure consumer fraud.  It was sold on a number of entirely false premises.  When the public elected Obama, and when his party found the congressional muscle to push the Affordable Care Act through, the public signed a "contract" that was filled with false promises and sold with false advertising.  The other side of that contract is now saying that it can't get anywhere close to fulfilling its terms.  It can't deliver the benefits it promised, its services have amounted to a pile of overpriced junk, and the cost is going to be astronomically higher than originally presented.

Movie review: 'Thor: The Dark World'

The latest Marvel movie is good clean forgettable fun, with some great design work and visual effects, a dash of the humor that has been bubbling through all these films lately, a convoluted set-up disguising a fairly simple premise, and another great performance from Tom Hiddleston as Loki.  He's pretty much the definitive Marvel villain at this point, and he clearly loves his job - both the actor and the character.

Sorry your insurance got canceled! Here, let the taxpayers make it up to you

A round of applause for anyone who guessed that President Obama would deal with a rising tide of public outrage over his phony "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise by throwing other people's money at the problem!  The Hill reports that a lot more people may suddenly become eligible for tax credits to pay for their shiny new overpriced, under-performing ObamaCare coverage: Nov 8, 2013 8:27 PM PT

Get ready for the goal posts to move

It's not looking too good for the big November 30 ObamaCare relaunch.  There are still assurances that the deadline will be met, but with only a few weeks to go, they're starting to sound rather... strained. Nov 8, 2013 12:29 PM PT

Anti-competitive profit caps of ObamaCare

The other day, I was musing with some online correspondents that Democrats are working overtime to shift blame for higher premiums and cancelled policies onto insurance companies, but ObamaCare's vast array of regulations don't impose rock-solid price caps, or prevent policies from ending, even though in theory both of those (hideous) ideas could have been included.  In other words, the private-sector scapegoats are getting savaged for doing what they are legally allowed to do - indeed, legally required to do, in the case of the brutally tight HHS regulations issued to prevent insurance policies from being "grandfathered" as easily as Obama originally promised.   Nov 7, 2013 2:16 PM PT
