Beating Obamacare

No, Mr. Obama, it’s not sexism that’s turning the tide against Hillary Clinton

Betsy McCaughey, President Obama blames sexism for Hillary Clinton’s tight presidential race. But that’s not the “ism” that’s holding her back. Donald Trump has opened an eight-point advantage over Clinton on which candidate is honest and trustworthy, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News Tracking Poll. “Truthism” — defined as the voters’ preference for candidates

How Mike Pence won the debate

Betsy McCaughey,  Vice Presidential candidates Republican Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine went 90 minutes in the ring Tuesday night in Farmville, Virginia without either side scoring a knockout punch. But Pence won the debate by conveying the Trump ticket’s vision for the future.   He deftly avoided a slugfest over the petty issues that have

Obamacore: Bad to the core

Betsy McCaughey In the past week, Govs. Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Mary Fallin of Oklahoma evicted Common Core from public schools, even at the risk of losing hundreds of millions of federal dollars promised to states adopting it. Haley and Fallin initially supported Common Core, but public outrage is forcing them to reverse

More than talk needed to rescue trapped vets

Betsy McCaughey Leave it to President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress to enact what they billed as “comprehensive” health reform and overlook the plight of 8.5 million veterans. That’s what they did in 2010 when they passed Obamacare. It provides coverage for convicts and even for newcomers to this country with no waiting period,

Pelosi and Schumer: Read the Constitution

Betsy McCaughey  Democrats are hyperventilating over a U. S. Supreme Court ruling on April 2, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claims the ruling will turn politics into a “money war.” Sorry, that happened a long time ago. For the past two decades, unions have poured massive amounts into super PACs

The war against women invades the court

Betsy McCaughey On Tuesday, a startling rift appeared on the U.S. Supreme Court — as the three female justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., a

The Democratic Party is Using the threat of impeachment to Raise Funds

That’s one way to stop impeachment. Here’s a better way: Tell the president to obey

Obama silences complaining employers with IRS

Betsy McCaughey President Barack Obama is using the IRS to silence employers unhappy about Obamacare. That’s the hidden purpose behind the employer mandate delay announced on Feb. 10. The administration released 227 pages of mind-numbing regulations ridiculously billed as making “the compliance process simpler and easier” for employers. Hidden in the gobbledygook (on pages 125-126)

Obamacare Ignites Revolution Inside The Democratic Party


In a shocking apology on NBC News, President Obama talked about his landmark healthcare bill, and its poor implementation. “Obviously, we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law,” President Obama said. “I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they

President Barack Obama: The Dictator in Chief


President Barack Obama says he can “fix” the millions of canceled health insurance plans with an administrative change. He’s claiming more executive power — power for himself — than the Constitution allows and playing fast and loose with the truth. The culprit behind the cancellations is not administrative regulation, as Obama asserts; it’s Section 2702

If you like your God, you can keep Him


By: Betsy McCaughey  On Nov. 1, the Gilardi brothers, devout Roman Catholics who operate their own fresh produce business in Ohio, won round two in a battle against the White House. The Obama administration tried to claim that freedom of religion means freedom to pray, not necessarily to practice your beliefs. Once you leave church,
