The Joke Police

I'm becoming more and more uncomfortable with fellow conservatives who feel the need to be the joke police.  Over the weekend, actor Paul Walker died in a car crash.  First of all, Twitter is a horrible place to be when people die.  Sometimes I don't know who is more annoying -- the people who make morbid jokes or the people who grandstand about the people who make morbid jokes.

Thanksgiving Fun from The Heritage Foundation

The Heritage Foundation is having a bit of fun with the Left's call to engage family and friends on politics during their Thanksgiving holiday.  Instead, they suggest sending their cheeky "Let's Be Thankful" ecards.  Among them: Nov 27, 2013 4:51 AM PT

A Lesson in Budgeting and the Effects of ObamaCare

The Foundry has an excellent post about one family's experience with their health care insurance premium going up after the implementation of ObamaCare.  Their original plan of $389 per month for a family of four went up to $499 per month in 2011 when California mandated that all plans cover birth control.  In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act, their plan was canceled and they would have to enroll in a new plan that is now $1,252 per month.

Congress Can Defeat Bad Health Care Laws Again

I'm really glad to see that conservatives are  back to talking about how bad ObamaCare is for Americans rather than focusing on the failures of the website.  The White House and the media want the focus to be the shortcomings of rather than the law itself.  Nov 18, 2013 10:03 AM PT

Why ObamaCare Hurts Everyone

Today on The Heritage Foundation's blog, The Foundry, Chris Jacobs makes the case for why ObamaCare hurts everyone, whether you get insurance from your employer, it's subsidized, you buy it on your own or you're a senior on Medicare.  As stories of cancelled policies emerge after the President's "if you like your plan you can keep it" lie, ObamaCare defenders now claim that those losing their plans only represent 3% of cases.  However, Jacobs explains how ObamaCare affects everyone.

The White House and MSM Want Us Talking About Failures

Fellow conservatives, I beg you: Stop focusing on the fact that sucks.  It takes the narrative off of the fact that it's ObamaCare that sucks.  Proof that the Left wants us talking about the website is that the White House, the media and SNL's cold opening sketch is talking about it.
