Thank Obamacare for Driving Older Americans to the GOP

With the advent of the Affordable Care Act, the initial feeling was that older adults would embrace Obamacare and thank President Obama with their support and votes. The euphoria for Obamacare is quickly waning as they find themselves with a shrinking provider network and, in many cases, having to cut ties with long-time physicians. Andy Mangione, vice president of government relations for the Association of Mature American Citizens, a conservative advocacy group for senior... Read More

Obamacare Alienating the President’s Staunchest Supporters

When you start tallying up all the people who despise Obamacare, the line gets pretty long. But one group having a big problem with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) might surprise you: union members, who have historically been the staunchest supporters of President Obama and the Democrats. When the ACA was first proposed, the administration knew it had to woo trade unions if it was ever to gain approval. Unions publicly rallied for its passage. But behind closed doors, unions... Read More

Obama Administration Defines Cause and Effect

If you want to see the principle of cause and effect in action, look no further than Obamacare. We have a situation where Obamacare is causing employers to reduce their number of full-time employees to part-time to avoid having to provide government-approved health plans or be penalized. We are now seeing companies that have already converted full-time employees to part-time cutting healthcare benefits altogether and forcing them to buy health insurance through the Obamacare... Read More

The Cost of Permanent Patients

The United States currently has an estimated 11 million immigrants who entered this country illegally. According to the National Research Council, the migration of these individuals into the United States costs American taxpayers $346 billion annually. Now we are starting to get a feel for the costs being absorbed by one sector — the U.S. healthcare system — to treat this population. And the cost is staggering. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the current... Read More

When Patents Are Stolen, So Are American Jobs

Ideas build nations. Great minds fueled the economies of nations as far back as the ancient Egyptians. Yet, after only a bit more than 200 years, America has become the world’s innovation leader. Small and medium-sized American companies generate the overwhelming percentage of this creativity, filing 13 more patents per employee than large corporations do. Meanwhile, the core copyright industries alone (not including the broader sector) lead all major industry sectors in U.S.... Read More

Five Hot Spots That Have Obama Running Scared

As we race toward the November election, you can be sure that President Barack Obama and his disciples will be ticking off his perceived accomplishments in his bid to win re-election. He will attempt to position himself as the tax-cutting, regulation-busting friend of small business. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If you listen closely, he will side-step the priorities he failed to accomplish in his three years in office, and won’t accomplish in 2012. They all have... Read More

FedEx Exec Michael Ducker Waiting for White House to Show more Leadership in Championing Trade Promotion

Kicking off his nationally syndicated “Neal Asbury’s Truth for America Show” on WZAB-AM, Neal Asbury opened the show by admonishing Democratic leaders like Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer for pushing a polarizing issue such as immigration at a time when the country is still reeling from the healthcare debate.  He proposed that this initiative as nothing more than a “naked political ploy to help their floundering reelection campaigns.” While acknowledging that... Read More

Rep. Tom Price on Healthcare

Physicians leaving the medical practice en masse, higher taxes to support a $1 trillion bill, and taking away the freedom of choice to seek care for you and your family. This nightmare scenario is on a path to becoming reality and unless Americans like us stand up for our country, this is the harsh certainty we will face. In the words of Representative Tom Price, the current health care legislation will “destroy health care in this nation.” Don’t believe it? Representative... Read More
