Greta Interviews Paul Ryan, Chairman of House Budget Committee - on CBO Health Care Repeal Cost Estimate - The Spending Spree is Over - This video is outstanding, please watch to understand the true story behind the Democrats hiding the true cost of the Health Care Bill, and why the original CBO estimates were not reflective of the true costs.


House Vote Brings Congress One Step Closer to Obamacare Repeal - The Blaze -  The new Republican-led House has taken the first step in its symbolic attempt to repeal President Barack Obama’s landmark health care overhaul.  Democrats who still control the Senate say it won’t get much further than that.  Voting largely along party lines, the House on Friday set the rules for a debate next week that will culminate in an up-or-down vote on repeal. The House will then direct several committees to come up with a more modest replacement. But even if that works, the process could take months. The vote was 236-181.  Democrats point to congressional budget scorekeepers who say repeal will increase the federal deficit by $230 billion and leave millions more uninsured. Republicans say killing the program now will save taxpayers money.  How sweet it is to finally see a vote like this for the people.


Breaking: CBO Says Repealing Obamacare Would Reduce Net Spending by $540 Billion - American Spectator - The Congressional Budget Office, in an email to Capitol Hill staffers obtained by the Spectator, has said that repealing the national health care law would reduce net spending by $540 billion in the ten year period from 2012 through 2021. That number represents the cost of the new provisions, minus Medicare cuts. Repealing the bill would also eliminate $770 billion in taxes. It's the tax hikes in the health care law (along with the Medicare cuts) which accounts for the $230 billion in deficit reduction.  Read more........


Obamacare Rewards Friends, Punishes Enemies - Karl Rove - Wall Street Journal - A primary task for the new Republican House majority is to undo as many of the pernicious effects of ObamaCare that it can. One of these effects is the spectacle of employers going hat-in-hand to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for waivers from some of the law's more onerous provisions.  In September, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius began granting waivers to companies that provided workers "mini-med" coverage—low-cost plans with low annual limits on what the insurance will pay out. This followed announcements by some employers that they would have to drop these plans because they did not meet the new health law's requirement that 85% of premium income be spent on medical expenses.  Read more.......  Article contributed by Steve Peters.


The States Versus Obamacare - WSJ - This week begins the inauguration and swearing-in ceremonies for newly elected officials all over the country. One thing many of us have in common is that the voters rewarded us for our outspoken opposition to ObamaCare.  The electorate's decisive rejection of the Obama administration's policies reveals a pervasive concern over the federal government's disregard of fundamental aspects of our nation's Constitution. No legislation in our history alters the balance of power between Washington and the states so much as ObamaCare does.  Read more..........  Article contributed by Steve Peters.
