WebMD, the world’s second-most-popular website for health advice, has very quietly secured a government contract in which it agrees to promote Obamacare and educate doctors about it.
Representatives of the website have argued that this does not constitute a conflict of interest, since WebMD would be allowed autonomy to present its own take on medical news and advice, and this particular government contract affects only its private portal for doctors. That is, for now. A contract for educating the public about Obamacare is also under way.
And actually, even the potential for government money was already affecting WebMD before it had secured the contract. When Obamacare finally rolled off the factory floor (a little worse for the wear), WebMD was among the first sites to coo its praises. And the Obama administration also had some nice things to say about WebMD. Let the mutual back-scratching commence. (bold type mine) Read more at http://lastresistance.com.
At last. The White House deadline for fixing healthcare.gov has come and gone. After over $676 million has been spent on the site and now the question is: Does it work? Try it and find out; it’s really neat!
They’ve finally completed repairs on the Obamacare website. If you need to sign up, or would just like to check it out, you can do that by first clicking here. Once you’re at the website simply click on the “Apply Now“ button to get started to see how well it works. Wow, if you think that was hard, just try to find a doctor. Simply close the window when done.
President Obama Visits Fasting Immigration Protesters in D.C.
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) – The First Couple visited protesters in D.C. on Friday who have been fasting for the past few weeks in hopes to pressure Congress to pass new immigration laws.
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by the groups’ camp on the National Mall to show their support for the “Families for Families” campaign.
The protesters say they have given up all food except water for the past 18 days to draw attention to immigration reform measures pending on Capitol Hill. Read more at: washington.cbslocal.com.
(Maybe the eighty-something and ninety-something World War II veterans should have fasted too).
Really… Like Barack Husein Obama would actually sign up for Obamacare

Thanks a lot GOP: For eating your own and your capitulation. Look at where you have brought us!

When a policy is failing how do President Obama and his acolytes solve the issue? Fabricate positive press, of course. The Obama campaign machine is desperately kicking in overtime to combat the truth, or as they classify it, “bad press” on Obamacare.
First of all, Organizing for Action has received marching orders to “get into people’s faces” and talk about Obamacare over Thanksgiving dinner. That approach will give new meaning to the term food fight. (Oh, and by the way, during a conference call with supporters, Obama claimed 100 million people have signed up, which is only off by a factor of …um…a thousand or so) Continue reading at: allenwest.com.

In this brief clip from Panel Two of the hearing, Congressman Pete Olsen (R-TX) asks each of the three witnesses if they were comfortable putting their personal information and that of their families’ into healthcare.gov. The last answer was extremely revealing.
Energy & Commerce Committee memorandum announcing the hearing.
WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid a “bully” who is breaking the rules of the Senate because he needs to do whatever he can to change the subject in the media, and protect Obamcare from the daily pounding it is getting.
Paul is referring to the so-called “nuclear option” that Reid and Senate Democrats resorted to Friday which eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations. Read more at: wnd.com.
Well, Obama didn’t explicitly say that: “If you like your Medicare Advantage doctor, you can keep your Medicare Advantage doctor,” now did he?
The Wall Street Journal reports that private insurance provider United Health is dropping thousands of doctors from its Medicare Advantage networks. Medicare Advantage is very popular with senior citizens, but United Health says that “government cuts” will “leave many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors.”
The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company’s other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment.” According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

No one can deny that President Obama’s press conference on ObamaCare today was nothing short of a debacle. In case you missed it, catch up quick.
(Story below video)
“You lie because your premiums will be higher.” “Never report it, I always lie on my applications.” “Don’t tell them that.” These are just a few of the comments made by ObamaCare navigators caught on video.
James O’Keefe, the videographer who helped bring down ACORN and got NPR’s president fired, sent his undercover investigators to meet with ObamaCare navigators, who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges.

Governor Christie has been getting a lot of attention since his recent re-election last week. Both the Republican establishment and Democratic pundits as well as the main stream media have all but crowned him as the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. Never mind his position on illegal immigration and the Second Amendment, or his big Obama hug (anyone remember Charlie Crist?). But in an ongoing poll from Eagle Rising/LastResistance.com, it appears that Conservatives feel differently. Check out the poll below, and scroll down to the bottom to see up to the minute results and cast your vote for the Republican you would LEAST want as President. Note, the results below are as of 10:30 PM on Monday.
So much for an independent free press.
Reporters with the Society of American Business Editors and Writers received “training” on how to cover Obamacare’s rollout from a policy expert who works with President Obama’s former health information technology adviser.
The Commonwealth Fund’s Sara Collins claimed during the training that healthcare.gov’s chronic dysfunctionality does not signify “deeper issues” with the law. Read more at: washingtonexaminer.com.
VIDEO: Watch Obama (kinda, sorta) apologize to Americans’ losing their health plans
Yesterday, President Obama threw a lot of stuff up into the air in what has been called an apology for his serial lies about Obamacare. Will any of it stick and will the Statist Media continue to cover for him? Only time will tell.
