ObamaCare: The Enron of healthcare

People should be in JAIL over ObamaCare!

What Gruber exposed about the “crafting” of the ObamaCare lie is, as Katie Pavlich put it recently, tantamount to a corporation lying about a product it sells.

Katie rightfully said that a CEO would go to jail for what Obama did. So why isn’t Obama in jail? ObamaCare is the Enron of healthcare. ObamaCare pretends to do positive things, but in fact it is smoke and mirrors intended to enrich a small few.   Read more »

Rather Than Charging Directly at Obama’s Executive Order, Republicans Should Circle Behind Him and Offer Their Own Immigration Reform Package

Governing by executive order is no way to run an immigration policy, let alone an entire government. But the resort to unilateral action does not happen in a vacuum; it is borne out of poorly written, arbitrary and confusing laws. The GOP-controlled Congress should respond to Obama’s executive order by passing a bill that simplifies the immigration system.

Our immigration laws are “second only to the Internal Revenue Code in complexity,” according to California Associate Justice Harry E. Hull Jr. Like the income tax code, our immigration laws contain numerous provisions for the president to exercise arbitrary power, inflict cruel punishments for minor offenses

More Than 100 Texas Business Owners Urge Republicans in Congress to Pass Immigration Reform Now

Houston, Texas — Today several conservative and business leaders in Texas called on the Texas delegation to work toward passing meaningful immigration reform in Congress as soon as possible. Participating in today’s event were Norman Adams, Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy, Pat Kiley, CEO of Kiley Advisors and former Director of Associated General Contractors, Charles Foster of Foster law firm and Greater Houston Partnership, Darlene East, President of Holes Inc., Kevin Carroll, Gringos Mexican Kitchen franchisee, and Alan Nash attorney retired from Mitchell Energy (Republican Delegate).

"We need Congressional legislation to fix our broken immigration system. An executive order will likely address less than 20% of undocumented immigrants. We need a modern immigration system that drives our economy rather than ignores it.”

President Obama’s Plan to Address Immigration Solves Nothing

Yesterday, a source close to the White House leaked what they claim is the administration’s plan to address immigration – a 10-point executive action that, among other provisions, would suspend deportation orders for up to 4.5 million unauthorized immigrants. ImmigrationWorks president Tamar Jacoby made the following statement:


Many reform advocates are celebrating, but the truth is this should be a sad day for anyone who supports a real fix for immigration.   Read more »
