Have A Koch And A. . .Hint Of Queasiness

by Smitty I can hear the Lefties arguing “If ObamaCare helps at least ONE person. . .”. Which is garbage. The rebuttal: “Cure worse than the disease” comes to mind. Via Instapundit Update: Via the YouTube comments, check out Right Wing Extremist Kurt Schlichter, bogarting all the jobs:

Good-Bye, Employer Mandate?

An interesting article at Politico: Robert Gibbs’ prediction that Obamacare’s employer mandate would — and perhaps should — be jettisoned shocked Democrats back in April.

So What If The #VA Scandal Is Just #ObamaCare Meets #Benghazi?

by Smitty Americans in general and veterans in particular are far too spun up about the VA scandal. This has led to at least one scurrilous photo-bumming incident already. And why?

Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Recycles ‘War on Women’ Theme

The DNC chairwoman issued a statement on Women’s Health Week in which she evidently presumes that (a) abortion is essential to “women’s health,” (b) opposition to abortion is an “extreme agenda,” and (c) all women think ObamaCare is awesome: [A]t the state and national level, Republicans have repeatedly taken actions that restrict access to health […]

This Is Not The Time To Go Wobbly On #ObamaCare: Abort It With The Prejudice Of All Stone-Hearted Feminists Combined

by Smitty In this one-time, symbolic sense, I’m willing to be seen encouraging an abortion. And, yes, a plan for something better, that supports liberty, the economy, mom and apple pie needs to be described. And then, Just. Bludgeon. ObamaCare. Like. A. Baby. Seal.
