NFIB v. Sebelius Comes Back to Bite Obamacare

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obamacare advocates claim that the failure to defend the ACA in Texas v. United States is an unprecedented dereliction of duty by the Department of Justice (DOJ). This is hysterical nonsense. It is indeed unusual, but the DOJ is by no means obligated to defend a law deemed unconstitutional by the President. If these provisions are struck down, Obamacare will have been all but nullified. This is why the Democrats and the media have so shamelessly misrepresented the decision not to fight Texas v. United States.

Eight reasons to still hate Obamacare

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Let’s summarize what we have gotten for our money under Obamacare. We have spent hundreds of billions of dollars already; we have massively increased the size of the federal budget; we have subsidized insurance plans to get Americans to sign up for Obamacare; we have penalized people if they don’t buy Obamacare (until that law was repealed); but we still have almost 1 in 11 Americans without insurance. Has there ever been a bigger public policy flop?

The Obamacare Food Cops Are Here

David Catron, The American Spectator

If you thought Michelle Obama’s departure from the White House meant there would be less government meddling with your meals, you were mistaken. Beginning Monday, Obamacare’s menu labeling requirements became effective for fast-food chains, family restaurants, pizza delivery companies, grocery chains, convenience stores, movie theaters, and any other food retailer with 20 or more locations.

Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Attacks Swamp Dwelling Indiana GOP Senate Primary Opponents

Meyer Distributing CEO and Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Braun yesterday unveiled a new advertising campaign titled “Swamp Brothers” that may remake how outsider candidates run against their establishment Republican primary opponents.

New Poll: Conservatives Wanted Trump to Veto Spending Bill

According to a new poll by FedUp PAC, a veto was supported by 94%, who agreed that it would be better for President Trump “to shut down the government for a while” rather than sign the Omnibus.  Only 1% supported Trump’s decision to sign the bill.

Obama didn't know healthcare could be so complicated

Editors, Washington Examiner

What Obama claimed with such overweening confidence was that a few technical changes might fix most of the problems with healthcare delivery. But he and his allies pushing Obamacare were just plain wrong. His technocratic arguments that the 2010 law could bend the cost curve downward have been refuted again and again since its passage. Now, two new studies are out that explode critical assumptions people made in debate about medical bankruptcies and electronic medical records.

Ted Cruz Explains Why He Opposed The Omni-Disaster

In 2016, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Republicans to change Washington. Now, Congress did the exact opposite: pass a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill — 2200 pages drafted by the Swamp in the dark of night — that will plunge our nation even deeper into debt.

Call Congress Today: Protest This Atrocious Spending Bill!

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

FLASH UPDATE: President Trump says he is considering vetoing the Omnibus. You may contact the White House through this link to urge him to veto this outrageous attack on the conservative -- populist agenda that elected Donald Trump President.

In another middle-of-the-night sneak attack on America, the leaders of the Uniparty, RINO Senator Mitch McConnell and Far-Left liberal Democrat Chuck Schumer rammed through the $1.3 trillion Omnibus spending bill that no Senator read and few even know what it does. This government by trainwreck will continue unless you get involved.

GOP Establishment Throwing Away Majority In Omnibus

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy that if he wants to keep his Republican majority in the House there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout, no Ex-Im bank cronyism, and absolutely no new gun control in this year’s omnibus.

Obamacare’s Massacre of the Innocents

David Catron, The American Spectator

If the “news” media showed one-tenth as much outrage over the deaths of nearly 22,000 poor and disabled Americans as they have shown this weekend over the well-deserved termination of one deep state corruptocrat, it would help the cause. But I guess the old maxim, “If it bleeds, it leads,” doesn’t apply to mere proles who quietly perish on purgatorial Medicaid waiting lists.

Adam Kinzinger: Empty Suit For Congress

Incumbent Congressman Adam Kinzinger is a prime example of what is wrong in Washington DC’s Republican establishment; out of touch, arrogant and thoroughly corrupted by DC’s insider lobbyist culture. We urge our friends in Illinois’ 16th District to vote for James Marter for Congress.

Democrats and RINOs Driving 2018 Omnibus Spending

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout and no Ex-Im bank cronyism in this year’s omnibus.

Obamacare Bailout: Dumb Policy, Dumber Politics

David Catron, The American Spectator

Beginning with the politics of these bailouts, it should be blindingly obvious to the Republicans that they have a serious enthusiasm gap to close, and that chasm is largely the result of their failure to honor the pledge to repeal Obamacare. That promise fueled Republican gains in the 2010 and 2014 midterms, and it would be an egregious understatement to say that the voters who believed it are extremely unhappy to find themselves still laboring under the yoke of the “Affordable Care Act.”

This Week The GOP Decides Who It Is

The omnibus spending bill, slated to be an eye-popping, Obama-level $1 trillion-plus has become a catchall for practically every spending priority of the Democrats, while calls from conservatives for spending discipline and conservative policy riders have been given the cold shoulder by the House and Senate leadership.

Can ‘Texas v. United States’ Set Us Free From Obamacare?

David Catron, The American Spectator

The case will almost certainly wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court, and it’s a good bet that the justices will finally banish the individual mandate to outer darkness in a 5-4 ruling. Will they fall in with the inseverability argument, and kill Obamacare in its entirety? Probably not, but it stands a far better chance of doing so than the “news” media has reported.

Blue States Vacillate on the Individual Mandate

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrat windbags who run the blue states engaged in their usual fustian bluster when protesting the repeal of the individual mandate. If it were possible to get the truth out of them, they would probably admit they’re happy it’s gone. This will be the first election year since 2010 in which they won’t have to defend that abomination.

Outsider Mike Braun Makes Trade Issue In Indiana’s GOP Senate Primary

Conservative Republican and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun may be the first GOP senate candidate to embrace President Trump’s trade policies as a campaign issue in a Republican Primary by attacking his opponents in a new ad titled "Made in America."

Hatch Was Right About Obamacare’s Supporters

David Catron, The American Spectator

Obamacare supporters were the useful idiots who helped the Democrats foist the “Affordable Care Act” on an unwilling electorate. We have them to thank for skyrocketing health insurance premiums, a collapsing community hospital system, a shortage of primary care physicians, and a shorter life expectancy. In retrospect, it appears that Senator Hatch may have been pulling his punches during that AEI speech.

Sustainable Development: Code for Reorganizing Human Society

“The chaotic growth of cities will be replaced by a dynamic system of urban settlement…The region is formed by the economic interdependence of its development, from the industrial complex to the industrial region. The region has a single system of transportation, a centralized administration, and a united system of education and research.” Alexei Gutnov, The Ideal Communist City

Republican AGs: Obamcare Now Unconstitutional

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 eliminated the Obamacare penalty. Now that the penalty or "tax" has been removed from Obamacare, but the health insurance mandate remains, Obamacare is unconstitutional.  That is why the 18 Republican Attorneys General and two Republican Governors have sued to have Obamacare held unconstitutional.
