Insurers Will Panic If Obamacare Misses Nov 30 Deadline

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the Healthcare.gov website isn't likely to be fully functional by the White House's self-imposed November 30th deadline.

ObamaCare Cuts Out Consumer, Pays Subsidy Directly to Insurer

Millions of Americans are expressing "sticker-shock" as they learn about the dramatic increases in health insurance premiums, as a result of ObamaCare. The Obama Administration downplays these concerns, noting that many will qualify for subsidies to make coverage more affordable. The subsidies, however, do not go to the individual policyholder. The Treasury will send the subsidies directly to the insurance companies. Its a huge leap towards a single-payer system. Nov 13, 2013 6:48 AM PT

National Journal: How Obama Blew 2013

Just a year ago, President Obama, seen as vulnerable since the 2010 midterm handily defeated Mitt Romney to win an historic second term.

Obama's approval ratings rose and he confidently predicted that his reelection would break the Republican "fever" in Washington. Instead, National Journal, a respected liberal publication, argues he "blew it." Obama lost 2013. Nov 8, 2013 9:41 AM PT

WaPo Pollsters Blame Republicans for Bad Poll

The Washington Post's final poll in the Virginia Governor's race predicted Democrat Terry McAuliffe romping to a 12-point landslide victory over Republican Ken Cuccinelli. The Post also found a gender-chasm, with McAuliffe enjoying a 24-point advantage among women over Cuccinelli. Obviously, the election did not turn out that way.

Cuccinelli Wins Voters, 18-24, by 6 Points

This is certainly not the accepted narrative. According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe by 6 points, 45-39, among voters aged 18-24. Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis earned 15%, which isn't surprising. President Obama has received overwhelming support from young voters, but that backing didn't transfer to McAuliffe.

VA Results Should Terrify Red State Senate Dems

While many national Democrats breathed a sigh of relief as Terry McAuliffe eked out a win in Virginia's Governor race, his narrow win ought to terrify Senate Democrats up for reelection next year.

The result is an ominous omen for 2014. Nov 6, 2013 8:22 AM PT
