Not just because of skyrocketing premiums due to all of the federal mandates and taxes, but because most those who will enroll in any existing health care exchanges will be from those who were previously insured by their employer. Employers are being forced to dump health coverage for employees because Obamacare rules and costs discourage employers from insuring their employees.
It is cruelly ironic, but the massive law that was enacted to solve the problem of the uninsured in America is more likely to worsen it. This would be true even if the program is perfectly implemented and all the provisions come online on time and within budget.
How could this be? It is a multistep process. Stay with me for a second.
First, the simplest and most direct form of expanding coverage — Medicaid expansion — is likely to have very little effect…

As we and so many other have said so many times, the left passes gun laws often not in an effort to restrain crime, but to use as a trap to ensnare gun owners, who the left see as their political enemies. Lawyers call such legislation “flypaper laws”.
Colorado Democrats have control of the state Senate, House and governor’s office. So this year, under pressure from the White House, they launched into a war on guns, adopting one regulation, restriction and rule after another.

The residents of Tinley Park, IL are freaked out. And it’s by the scary behavior of our own government.
The Department of Defense has been conducting another urban assault military drill this week within a populated southwest Chicago community. And just to make it especially frightening, they’re raining their hours of terror upon the locals in the middle of the night. Residents are being woken up to the sounds of flash bangs, and explosions, with visuals of police lights, and Blackhawk helicopters circling low overhead. The DoD’s response to the frightened and angry residents? Tough!
According to the Chicago Tribune,
A Department of Defense training exercise that included explosions heard miles away scared some southwest suburban residents late Tuesday and early this morning.
Residents said they heard “bomb” noises from about 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tinley Park police received about 25 calls from residents who were either fearful or angry, especially in the wake of the bombings in Boston last week.
The urban warfare training at the former Tinley Park Mental Health Center was expected to use small explosives to blow doors off hinges, local authorities said. A second training exercise at the former mental health center is planned for tonight, this time with helicopters, police said. …
Erin Lonergan, 25, lives about a mile from the training site. She heard the explosions while watching a movie with her family.
“They were happening every 15 minutes or so,” Lonergan told the Tribune. “They were quite loud.”
Lonergan said she was scared because of the time of night and the bombings at the Boston Marathon last week.
