Weekly Wrap-Up

This week marks the third anniversary of Obamacare. It’s a milestone no serious person would celebrate, so of course Nancy Pelosi celebrated.

Doctors serving in Congress are not so happy...

Investors Business Daily offers up ten disturbing facts about the health care law. 

The Manhattan Institute compares the rhetoric to the reality on Obamacare.

And former New York Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey predicts that there will be a reckoning for Obamacare – probably in plenty of time for the 2014 elections.

And Mona Charen advises Republicans to be ready for the collapse of Obamacare with an actual policy alternative.

Do you have a birthday wish for Obamacare? Vote “Happy Birthday” or “Go Away” in our new Weekly Poll.

Andrew Cuomo isn’t celebrating the tax increases he’s slipped into the new budget – instead, “the governor has come up with new math on how a tax increase is really a tax cut,” according to the New York Post.

Also in the Post, it’s no surprise that New York is “closed for business” thanks to the Cuomo Agenda.

But as his budget proposal shows, Gov. Cuomo does have some clear priorities – including tax breaks for his friends in Hollywood and in the media (i.e. people who give generous campaign contributions).  Obviously, getting The Tonight Show to move to New York City is a top concern for hard-working New York families.

And of course one of the biggest concerns weighing on the hearts and minds of upstate New Yorkers right now is whether or not Andrew Cuomo and his friends in Albany will have sufficiently enjoyable seats at upcoming Buffalo Bills games. Well fear not, Cuomo and Co. are now taken care of.  

What are the odds that more than a few Cuomo donors will end up enjoying these prime NFL seats? Pretty solid, I would say.

More repairs are being made to the best gun-control bill ever. Like Obamacare, I suppose, the politicians in Albany had to pass gun control so we could see what’s in it – and what’s in it is living down to our worst expectations.

Have a great weekend!
