Go ahead—take a look at HHS’ self-help site on ObamaCare

Sample checklist from the federal government regarding ObamaCare. (Snip/HHS)I took a look at the Health and Human Services website to explore the exchanges President Barack Obama and the Democrats have been touting. October 1 is the magic day when control of the healthcare market moves to the federal government.

Although I fully expect our family's health insurance costs to rise, I wanted to see what the Obama adminstration had done to prepare Americans for radical changes in our health insurance and the radical changes in healthcare that will occur once the federal bureaucracy controls the market.

Washington Post, home of ‘Journolist’, botches criticism of Cruz on ObamaCare, alien workers

Legacy media can't stop Sen. Cruz from telling Americans the truth about the new immigration bill S. 744. (Snip: Twitter)Nothing The Washington Post does on behalf of the Democrat Party surprises. After all the paper birthed the notorious ‘Journolist’ group featuring media, academics and strategists who collaborated on electing a Democrat president in 2008. As if that wasn’t enough, WaPo then proceeded to attempt to hold an event at the publisher's house that basically would have dished up access to cabinet officials as long as a lobbyist was willing to pay. The event would have been "off the record," of course.

Now The Post is running defense for the Obama administration again, seizing a reason (any reason) to criticize Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. It started with a Tweet.

Potential gift to GOP and the public: Reid seeks exemptions for ObamaCare

Even the politicos who passed the ObamaCare Tax Bill, presented under the misleading, ridiculous title the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, apparently don’t want the bill messing up their own healthcare and wallets.

The Medicare Free Wellness Visit: I’d Rather See a Veterinarian 

By guest contributor Marilyn M. Singleton, M.D., J.D.

A friend went in for his Medicare free “wellness visit,” compliments of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). He assumed it was like a doctor’s annual check-up. After all, when he took his dog to the vet for a wellness visit, little Sparky was examined and tested for worms. So my friend made the mistake of asking the doctor to listen to his heart and lungs – just because that is what we expect physicians will do. Then he got a bill.

Neither my friend nor his physician realized that if the patient was actually touched during the free wellness visit, it ceased to be free.

Have Dems overlooked need to edit ObamaCare text?

The section in HR3590 (ObamaCare) still calls a tax a penalty. The language is technically illegal. (Snip: U.S. Government)After the Supreme Court changed aspects of the mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act most call ObamaCare from a penalty to a tax, it seems logical to change the wording in the bill. Have Democrats overlooked the need to edit their health tax bill?

ObamaCare update: Actor Jake McClain Tweets bill as Dems prepare for more fallout

Actor Jake McClain is Tweeting every word in the ObamaCare Tax Bill. (Snip: @JakeMcClain)The ObamaCare Tax bill may be the biggest favor Democrats have ever done the Republican party. A quagmire of regulations, more than a dozen new taxes and arcane language in the legislation point to chaos, confusion and nasty surprises for those of us not in the federal political class.

Actor Jake McClain gets it.
