Covered California, the California health exchange, is coming clean about violating the privacy of thousands of its customers. According to the Los Angeles Times, the exchange confessed it has shared personal information about the customers with insurance agents without the customers’ permission. The ostensible reason was that the exchange has a pilot program with a December 23 deadline to have customers enroll… Read more →
There are many ways to lose money or wealth as a result of inflation. For most Americans, the most obvious type of inflation is the steady increase in the cost of living caused by reckless monetary policies followed by the Federal Open Market Committee. Instead of acting as an independent agency and protecting the value of the dollar, the FOMC… Read more →

Mission Accomplished: ‘Fixed’ Obamcare Site Crashes Live on CNN
Another public humiliation for Healthcare.gov. On the morning of the federal exchange site reboot, CNN hoped to demonstrate the success of the “tech surge” revamp of the site live for its viewers. But “then came the roadblock.” To the embarrassment and consternation of the CNN crew, the site crashed live.
Not only did the site fail on air, the technician admits in the segment that his attempt to enroll that morning ended up failing too with the site giving him an error message about 8 minutes into the process. Millions sunk into a site that, two months after its grand launch, still cannot function properly.
Speaking of millions: Millions of Americans have received cancelation notices on policies they were promised by the president they could keep. Many of those canceled policies lapse at the end of the year. With a two-week turn around for new policies, that gives millions of Americans less than two weeks to either enroll for a plan on the federal exchange or scramble to find a new policy on the open market.
Either way, thanks to Obamacare, millions of Americans are finding themselves forced to enroll in policies with higher premiums and deductibles.

Allen West, former GOP U.S. Congressman from Florida, said at a Thursday morning panel focused on the devastating economic impacts of amnesty that economic policies that displace black youths from jobs—like President Barack Obama’s immigration policies—have led to fads like the “knockout game.” The panel, hosted by the nonpartisan pro-jobs group Americans4Work and featuring West and other leaders on… Read more →

Colo. man informed his dog has successfully signed up for ObamaCare
It’s a real shaggy dog story. While Americans across the country are struggling to sign up for ObamaCare due to problems with the federal health care website, at least one enrollee has successfully gotten covered through a state-run exchange: a Colorado man’s 14-year-old Yorkie.
Fort Collins resident Shane Smith told KDVR he received a letter last week informing his dog,Baxter, that a health insurance account had been opened for the pup through Connect for Health Colorado.
Smith told the station he had to sign up for coverage through the state exchange because his health insurance plan was cancelled under ObamaCare. He isn’t sure how Baxter wound up getting enrolled instead, but he said he did give Baxter’s name as a security question as part of the registration process.
“It was pretty funny. Typical ObamaCare, that they would insure your dog by mistake,” Smith told KDVR.
