Liberal reaction to Hobby Lobby ruling

July 01, 2014 / Fox News

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that some companies like the Oklahoma-based Hobby Lobby chain of arts-and-craft stores can avoid the contraceptives requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, if they have religious objections.

A sampling of reaction:

"Today, the Supreme Court took an outrageous step against the rights of America's women, setting a dangerous precedent that could permit for-profit corporations to pick and choose which laws to obey." — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

"Employers have no business intruding in the private health care decisions women make with their doctors. ... If the Supreme Court will not protect women's access to health care, then Democrats will." — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Mission accomplished? ObamaCare sign-ups reportedly on track to hit 7 million

April 01, 2014 / Fox News

On the last day to sign up for ObamaCare, the program apparently was on track to sign up more than 7 million Americans for insurance coverage, though the number of enrollees who have paid for their insurance premiums is still unclear.

A source confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that the system was on track to see 7 million sign-ups. Seven million was the original target set by the Congressional Budget Office for enrollment in taxpayer-subsidized private health insurance through new online markets created under Obama's signature legislation.

High court clash over ObamaCare contraceptive mandate

March 25, 2014 / Fox News

One of the most controversial provisions of ObamaCare -- the mandate requiring employers to cover contraception -- was debated before the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as activists on both sides of the issue clashed outside the courtroom in Washington.

The justices appeared divided in the case, which is the highest-profile challenge to the health care law since the Supreme Court narrowly upheld the Affordable Care Act in 2012.

The case argued Tuesday involves family-owned companies, including Hobby Lobby, that provide health insurance to their employees, but object to covering certain methods of birth control that they say can work after conception, in violation of their religious beliefs.

Media attack Matt Drudge over Obamacare tweet

March 24, 2014 / Breitbart

From Breitbart:

A White House aide set off a stampede of liberal media criticism for Internet news pioneer Matt Drudge over Obamacare -- but his critics don't seem to understand how small businesses pay taxes.

The brouhaha started when Drudge tweeted, “Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX.”

Jesse Lee, the Director of Progressive Media at Barack Obama's White House, responded that that was a “Flat lie, no fee for previous year,” adding, “Scary how much influence he once had.”

Drudge indicated in his followup tweets that since he is self-employed as the proprietor of The Drudge Report, he files as a small business. According to the IRS website for self-employed individuals, they are required to pay taxes quarterly.

ObamaCare: Americans not fond of this 4 year old

March 21, 2014 / Fox News

Like party-goers who wish they weren’t invited, as ObamaCare hits its fourth birthday this Sunday a new poll shows Americans don’t much like the birthday boy. And who can blame them?  Born of highly-partisan passage in 2010 by a then Democratic-controlled Congress without a single favorable Republican vote, the president's signature health law has unleashed a cascade of confusion via a disastrous rollout, millions of policy cancellations and sticker shock. Results of the latest Pew Research survey show 53 percent of respondents disapprove of the entitlement program, while 41 percent approve. Opposition to the health law is just one point shy of the poll’s all-time high. This can’t be a welcome gift as team Obama continues its feverish enrollment push to reach a scaled-down goal of six million ObamaCare sign ups by March 31.

President Obama goes 'Between Two Ferns'

March 11, 2014 / Fox News

President Obama is showing his snarky side in an effort to get young Americans to sign up for ObamaCare.

Obama delivered both jabs and a plug for the law in an episode of comedian Zach Galifianakis' mock-interview show "Between Two Ferns," which was filmed two weeks ago and released online Tuesday. Galifianakis is known for putting his interview subjects in awkward positions and passive-aggressively insulting them in the "Funny or Die" web series.

Obama touted his health care overhaul, asking Galifianakis if he had heard of and insisting it "works great now." He then told a seemingly bored Galifianakis how young people can get covered for what it costs to "pay their cell phone bill" every month.

"Is this what they mean by drones?" Galifianakis asked.
