Kasich’s Job Creation Record Seen in a Different Light

Jason Hart of Media Trackers shows us that a picture’s worth a thousand words in his recent tweet.  Hart provides a chart which juxtaposes Governor Kasich’s net job creation record with his Obamacare Medicaid expansion enrollment.

 

Numbers don’t lie.  It looks like the Governor has been more successful increasing government dependency than he has been at setting Ohioans on the course to financial independence.

Ohio Medicaid has released its June 2014 caseload report which informs us […]

Medicaid Expansion Enrollment Figures On Track to Outpace Kasich’s Estimate

A June 11th report from Gongwer News Service outlines the latest enrollment figures from the Department of Medicaid for Kasich’s implementation of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.

243,230 Ohioans enrolled in Medicaid as of the end of May, just five months from the start date of the program.  36,000 applications remain pending approval.

During the Medicaid expansion debate, the Kasich administration told Ohioans that 366,000 people would enroll in Medicaid expansion by end of June 2015.  So just […]

Governor Kasich Take Heed: Study Shows Medicaid Expansion Leads to Increased ER Usage

The OLC has previously reported on the “Oregon Experiment,” which began in 2008 with a group of uninsured, low-income adults who were given the opportunity to participate in a lottery to apply for Medicaid benefits.  Researchers followed the group that won the lottery as well as the group who remained uninsured to determine what benefits, if any, were had by placing more individuals on Medicaid.

In May 2013, a study on the Oregon Experiment was published in […]

One Doctor Takes a Stand Against Washington Driven Health Care Mandates

Since 2009, we have heard politicians tell us how Obamacare would improve access to health care and lower premiums.  Very few, if any, of these individuals were experts in the medical field.  They were not doctors or hospital administrators.  They were elected and appointed officials, many lawyers, and many whose entire professional experience has been concentrated in government.  That Americans felt it was a good idea to turn the transformation of our health care […]

Targeting of Rep. Lynch for Protecting Ohio Constitution Continues

Defending Main Street PAC has entered the campaign to oppose Matt Lynch’s primary challenge to incumbent U.S. House Representative Dave Joyce of Ohio’s 14th district. The Republican super PAC was founded by former U.S. Representative Steve LaTourette who served the 14th district prior to Joyce.  Through his PAC, LaTourette is working to oppose conservative challengers to office.

An investment of nearly $28,000 was made by the PAC to send flyers to voters in an attempt […]

Cavuto On Obamacare: “Mr. President That Smell Is Your Law”

It’s refreshing to see a newsman tell it like it is.  Please watch as Neil Cavuto enumerates the broken promises, missed deadlines, and disastrous consequences of Obamacare while calling out President Obama for blaming Fox News for the law’s unpopularity.

True Nature of Obamacare Beginning to Hit Home

Despite the best efforts of the Obama administration, the majority of Americans have figured out by now that Obamacare is a ruse. Through speeches and media reports the Administration continues to give the appearance that they have developed a vibrant and efficient health insurance marketplace, but fewer and fewer are buying the lie.  An April 14th Rasumussen poll found that 58% of voters now view the health care law unfavorably, up from 52% in […]

Big Macs, Late Night Movies Readily Available; Health Insurance Is Not

It may be hard for some Americans to wrap their minds around it.  I’m talking about those of us who appreciate the convenience and the myriad of choices available to consumers in a free market economy.  But, in a country where you can buy a Big Mac 24 hours a day and download a movie off Netflix at 2 A.M., you cannot buy health insurance for the next eight months — an odd conundrum  […]

When It Comes to Obamacare Social Policy Trumps Health Care & Constitutional Rights

Obamacare is not as much about health care policy as it is about social policy.  The massive wealth redistribution accomplished through the ACA’s many taxes, fees, fines, subsidies, and tax credits which reward some while punishing others is just one example of this point.  Another example is the requirement for businesses to offer contraception and abortion-inducing drugs through employer sponsored health insurance plans regardless of the religious beliefs of the employer.

The Weekly Standard reveals […]

FreedomWorks Endorses Matt Lynch over Republican Incumbent Dave Joyce

The room was full of northeast Ohio tea party members when Adam Brandon, Executive Director of FreedomWorks for America, announced the endorsement of Matt Lynch for U.S. Congress in Ohio’s 14th district.  Lynch will face-off against incumbent Republican Representative Dave Joyce in the May 6th primary.

Supporters cheered and waved signs when the endorsement was announced making it clear that Matt Lynch has considerable grassroots backing which, if translated into a strong ground game, may mean […]
