  • Keep Your Healthcare Plan? Probably Not!

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, candidate Barack Obama promised that, if elected, he would press for some form of nationalized healthcare. Time after time, he assured Americans: 'If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it; if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.' Many in Congress promised the same thing as they crafted the sweeping healthcare legislation that ultimately passed in March.

    Yet on June 14 the Obama administration released an 83-page document which indicates that over half of all employer-provided health insurance plans will be effectively eliminated between now and 2014 because of the new healthcare law. For small businesses, it's even worse. The Obama administration's own estimates indicate that 66% or more of small businesses will abandon their healthcare insurance plans by the time ObamaCare kicks in on January 1, 2014.

    This week, we will look into the many new and onerous rules, regulations and restrictions in the latest 83-page report from the Obama administration. The bottom line: If you get your health insurance through your employer, or if you are (like me) the owner of a business that provides health insurance to its employees, you need to read what follows very carefully. We've all been lied to!

  • Can the GOP Take Back Congress in November?

    A week ago today, we had several key House and Senate primary elections, and now we know most of the match-ups for the November 2 mid-term elections. We have analyzed the latest poll results since last week's primaries, and we are surprised to see just how many Democrats are likely to lose their seats this November, or are in the 'toss-up' category, and how few Republican seats are likely to be lost.

    The main reason for the Democrats' dilemma is the 'anti-incumbent' fervor that is sweeping the country. And with the Dems holding large majorities in the House and Senate, they are squarely in the crosshairs of American voters who are still mad about them ramming ObamaCare down our throats. Some Republicans incumbents are in trouble too, but as the minority party, and with zero votes for ObamaCare, their losses look to be much smaller.

    This week, we will summarize the latest poll results for the mid-term congressional elections using data from the independent RealClearPolitics.com to help you get a clear picture of the election trends as they stand now. This week's E-Letter should be insightful no matter which political party you support.
