Obamacare HHS mandate gets judicial correction
Sheila Liaugminas | 20 December 2012
It was always wrong. But because it was issued by executive fiat, its violation of law had to go through the process of being tried, and there are many lawsuits standing against it.
Justices order Obamacare back to court
Sheila Liaugminas | 27 November 2012
Had President Obama lost the election, it would have been eliminated and replaced by new healthcare reform. But his win doesn’t assure that his signature legislation will survive intact.
Sheila Liaugminas | 26 November 2012
So now that President Obama has won another four years to fundamentally transform America as he promised in 2008, running to retain that office on the simple premise that he wanted to go forward, the question which should have been answered in the campaign but wasn’t even asked, now looms: To where and what are we headed?
Religious freedom and the Obamacare “Tax”
Sheila Liaugminas | 16 July 2012
What impact will Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision to uphold the individual mandate as a tax have on the battle for the right to religious liberty and conscientious objection?
Obama’s failure to communicate
Sheila Liaugminas | 13 July 2012
So it’s about not telling us good enough stories.
Independence Day 2012

What will Independence Day 2013 look like in America?
About that Supreme Court Obamacare ruling
Sheila Liaugminas | 29 June 2012
Nearly all the experts predicted it would wind up a 5-4 decision and that Anthony Kennedy would be the swing vote. They got it half right.
The bogus birth control controversy
Sheila Liaugminas | 28 February 2012
President Obama’s mandate requiring free access to contraception with virtually no employer exemption is at core a consitutional threat to religious liberty, not a heated debate about contraception and Church teaching. However, it quickly turned into that.
Sheila Liaugminas | 15 August 2011
The president’s very bad week highlighted what’s either wrong or lacking in his politics. Even liberal Democrats are getting frustrated.
Now that Obamacare comes to light
Sheila Liaugminas | 12 April 2011
Remember when Sen. Nancy Pelosi said they had to sign the healthcare bill to know what was in it? Well it has come to light, and some people are troubled by what it reveals.
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 February 2011
Last week, a vote to repeal Obamacare gathered more votes than last time around and only narrowly missed passage. But then it was declared unconstitutional anyway…
End of life regulation?
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 January 2011
Which is it…..are they required under Medicare or not?
Late to the party
Sheila Liaugminas | 03 November 2010
In spite of being belittled, criticized, ridiculed or just ignored by big media, Americans actively engaged in the Tea Party activities of the past two years never gave up or gave in. They never budged from their determination to hold government accountable and restore the values of the nation’s founders. Look who’s paying attention now…
Sheila Liaugminas | 26 October 2010
Several years ago, there was a popular book and tv series out called 'Goosebumps." I recalled that this morning while listening to an expert business analyst reporting on the impact of the healthcare legislation now, and what's looming on the horizon.
Obamacare price tag is showing
Sheila Liaugminas | 16 September 2010
Suddenly, everyone is talking about their healthcare insurance bills. Anyone who paid attention to all that argument all those months late last year and early this year over the massive health care bill in both houses of Congress knew it was being sold on many false claims. One is that it would pay for itself.
No faith in the language
Sheila Liaugminas | 27 July 2010
This could be a many-part series under that heading….
Sheila Liaugminas | 19 July 2010
Healthcare, immigration, financial industry...America is being re-formed alright. There are a lot of political irons in the fire right now and they're all pressing. Which ones are more important?
Obama’s redistribution of health
Sheila Liaugminas | 10 July 2010
Let’s be honest. President Obama’s recess appointment of Donald Berwick as the Medicare and Medicaid director was a ploy to get a controversial character past any scrutiny by Congress and the citizens of the United States. He didn’t want a confirmation hearing because he didn’t want Berwick’s views to be heard. Surprise, surprise.
Fix the healthcare law
Sheila Liaugminas | 07 July 2010
Besides all the other problems that have either been known or come to light about Obamacare that call for reforming this version of reform, two fundamental moral ones loom large. Heard anything about it lately?
Obama paying to sell health care
Sheila Liaugminas | 09 June 2010
The president got his version of health care reform passed into law, so he doesn’t need to sell it or even close the deal. He did that. But suddenly, he’s launched a huge campaign to market the ideas behind Obamacare. Why is he doing this?
