Obamacare vs. Little Sisters of the Poor

January 4, 2014

Just to review, the First Amendment to the Constitution states in its first clause: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; … That second part makes some very uncomfortable, and often is ignored in the courts. That being said, the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t approve of [...]

NObamacare for the NFL

June 29, 2013

Obamacare has a problem: if 2.7 million 18-35 year old males don’t sign up for those state exchanges, the whole thing is going to implode pretty quickly.  In their wisdom, our central planners figure that healthy young people’s high rates can pay for sickly old people.  If there’s not enough young people paying into the [...]

The Contraception Mandate Begins

August 1, 2012

Today, August 1 is the day when Obamacare’s contraception mandate goes into effect.  This mandate doesn’t give “women control of their health care” as HHS Secretary Sibelius said; women have had that ability regarding birth control since 1965.  Instead, this mandate essentially forces religious institutions to unreasonably violate their consciences in providing birth control coverage [...]

Catholic Bishops Rail on Obamacare

February 5, 2012

I have to admit that while I’m more than a C&E (Christmas/Easter) Catholic, I do tend to attend mass only sporadically.  Well, I HAD to attend mass this weekend to hear what my priest was going to say about the Obamacare mandate forcing religious groups to violate their consciences or be forced to only provide [...]

Obamacare Ain’t Got No CLASS

October 15, 2011

The Department of Health and Human Services had to admit yesterday that a portion of ObamaCare, the Community Living Assistance Services (CLASS) Act, is simply unworkable.  CLASS was Ted Kennedy’s brainchild (hiccup!) and a classic big government boondoggle waiting to happen:  eventually front loading goodies, while back loading the costs until the whole thing would [...]

The Fruition of McDonald’s Obama Care Threat

October 7, 2010

So, here we are:  McDonald’s spreads rumors about dumping 30,000 employees from their health insurance because of Obama Care, then in less than two weeks McDonald’s and 28 other businesses get a one-year waiver to keep their employees insured! Obama Care the law of the land, but with such glaring inconsistencies, screwy tax loopholes, complete [...]

HHS Backs Off Federally-Funded Abortions for Now

July 19, 2010

In lieu of the uproar last week about Obama Care’s mixed messages regarding federally funded elective abortions, the administration (or as Rush Limbaugh calls them, “the regime“) has clarified that the executive order stands and that federal funds being used for Obama Care’s high-risk insurance pools will NOT cover elective abortions. But, I don’t trust [...]

HHS Wants to Know How Fat You Are

July 16, 2010

So, when they agreed to make health records electronic (which I think on the surface is a great idea), who knew that these records would necessarily include your BMI (body mass index) which describes one’s level of obesity? HHS knew, but don’t think this is another Obama Care “oops there it is.”  This change was [...]

How Many Abortions Did You Pay for Today?

July 14, 2010

CNS has reported that President Obama’s Executive Order prohibiting the taxpayer funding for abortions is ostensibly worthless.  Remember, that Executive Order (aka Bart Stupak’s pound of flesh) was issued to plug a loophole in Obama Care that would use taxpayer money to fund abortions.  Perennial passage of the Hyde Amendment since the 1980s continued the [...]
