Despite Majority Opposition in Court of Public Opinion, Dems Defend ObamaCare at All Costs

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

After two years of complaining that “ObamaCare” was a pejorative term for their government healthcare takeover, Democrats suddenly decided last week that they would embrace the name—a signal that Democrats will continue to defend their healthcare disaster at all costs:   Read more »

House Repeals Another Obamacare Provision

The House of Representatives Thursday approved legislation to repeal part of Obamacare and implement medical liability reforms to reduce frivolous lawsuits that drive up the cost of health care. The House voted 223-181 to pass H.R. 5, the Protecting Access to Healthcare (PATH) Act.

The PATH Act repeals the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a committee of 15 federal employees created by Obamacare who can make major cuts to Medicare that are likely to limit seniors’ access to treatment and services.

House Dems Celebrate Two Years of ObamaCare Failure

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Wednesday marked two years since House Democrats rammed ObamaCare through Congress, and Democrats are celebrating the occasion by claiming that they will campaign on their government takeover of healthcare in 2012:   Read more »

Congressman Pete Sessions' Taco Bueno Visit

This past week, I had the opportunity to visit the Taco Bueno Headquarters in Dallas to learn more about the company and also how federal laws impact it. Taco Bueno has over 3,000 employees nationwide and the majority of those employees are in the state of Texas.

Taco Bueno, like many American companies, has already felt the negative impact of the Durbin amendment of the Dodd-Frank bill, a 2,300 page financial overhaul that brought forth an explosion

Who Is This Man Called Obama?

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
Barack Obama – February 5, 2008


Who is this man called Obama? Is he the Liar in Chief, the Community Organizer in Chief, Racist in Chief, War Monger in Chief, Narcissist in Chief, Salesman in Chief, Food Stamp president or is he all the above. He is a chameleon. He markets himself as being the Savior, the only one that can help the American people.

Governor Perry appoints Beverly Nuckols to Texas Institute for Health Care Quality and Efficiency

I can’t say the whole name of the Institute (Texas Institute for Health Care Quality and Efficiency) in one breath, so I alternate between calling it “the Institute,” or “tick” for “TIHCQE.”

TIHCQE will make recommendations to the Texas Legislature on how to measure quality and efficiency and help bring innovation to cut costs while still taking care of our Medicaid patients, those who have State health plans, and future “health care collaboratives” or HCC’s. The latter could be the Accountable Care Organizations

Religious Freedom Is Being Bullied

Mr. Speaker, the Administration is bullying religions. Yes, the government has required some religious organizations to violate their tenets and provide certain health care coverage for their employees--or else.

After an immediate backlash by the American public, the administration promised that it would make some changes; but the same day that it made this promise, it finalized the original mandate as-is with no changes. The original edict is now in effect. The big announcement about a change resulted in nothing, only more words.   Read more »

Texas AG Greg Abbott Challenges Constitutionality of Obamacare Mandate Against Religious Organizations

It looks like Catholic Bishops are not the only ones fighting back against Obamacare's Attack on Religion. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has joined in the fight too!

With so many challenges to the Obamacare, including one that the US Supreme Court will hear very soon in March 2012, it is very likely that the Obamacare mandates will be struck down as unconstitutional. If not, it is very likely that the legislature will repeal or change Obamacare in order to stay in office because the majority of Americans are against the Obamacare mandates.   Read more »

Avik Roy On Repealing The CLASS Act

You may recall that an earlier article reported on the demise of the CLASS act portion of Obamacare back in October. Actually, CLASS was not really killed. Rather, it was sort of frozen in carbonite by HHS. Like Han Solo at the end of The Empire Strikes Back, it's "alive and in perfect hibernation." Of course, that was not the end of Han Solo. So too, the Congressional Research Service has warned that the CLASS could be reinstated by a court decree if it is not formally repealed from the law. Forbes' Avik Roy reports:
