After an entire summer of protests, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid were determined, in late 2009, to set the groundwork for shoving ObamaCare down the throat of every American (who never liked or wanted it  . . . and still don’t).

Remember those late 2009 special sessions in which Democrats planned to push...

Higher premiums, ridiculous deductibles, fewer choices — you gotta love Obamacare.

Just yesterday I blogged about upcoming health insurance rate hikes. Health insurance plans offered on an exchange (like those purchased by most self-employed individuals) will see double-digit premium increases.
