Claiming that Virginia has standing to sue by virtue of a law passed by the state’s General Assembly, making it illegal to require citizens of the commonwealth to buy health insurance, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has asked a federal judge to deny the Obama administration’s request to have Virginia’s case challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare be dismissed.

A former CBO Director says that ObamaCare would likely raise deficits by $600,000,000,000 more than the CBO projects, could result in 40 million more Americans being shifted from employer-provided to government-provided insurance than the CBO projects, and would impose such high effective marginal tax-rates on those who are shifted onto government-provided insurance that it would be very hard for them to pursue the American Dream of making a better life.

As a so-called improvement to the insurance market, ObamaCare outlaws many inexpensive, more affordable types of insurance to force people into Washington-approved, comprehensive plans that are more expensive which “could strip more than 1 million people of their insurance coverage, violating a key goal of President Barack Obama’s reforms.”

“Even Bill Clinton’s economic advisers warned during the HillaryCare debates that imposing price controls would be difficult to implement and were likely to produce adverse effects. But those lessons appear not to have been passed on to the current administration, which seems determined to turn health insurance into an all-but government-run quasi-public utility.”

According to a study done by the Employee Benefit Research Institute, ObamaCare’s $5 billion early-retiree reinsurance program could exhaust its funding well before the program expires at the end of 2013 — and, in the long run, it would provide strong incentives for employers to drop coverage for early retirees.

Americans now favor repeal by 23 percentage points (58 to 35 percent) — and nearly 50 percent of Americans now “strongly” favor repeal, compared to fewer than 30 percent who are “strongly” opposed.

If Senator Dianne Feinstein’s introduction of a bill allowing the federal government to regulate insurance rates is any indication, Congressional Democrats’ faith in ObamaCare’s ability to rein in soaring health costs — as they assured Americans it would do — already seems to be wavering.

In the wake of ObamaCare’s passage, few Democrats are willing to interact with voters in public settings.  One swing-district ObamaCare-supporter, Rep. Tom Perriello (D, Va.) held 21 town-hall meetings last August but not a single one during the weeklong Memorial Day recess.

This week, we learned
that the Obama administration is orchestrating a $125 million
propaganda campaign to sell the recently enacted health-care law to the
public.  That effort will be funded
by labor unions and other groups from the Democratic political orbit.  It comes on top of the misleading
government mailer sent to the nation’s seniors, at the expense of
taxpayers, touting the supposed benefits of ObamaCare for the elderly.  On Tuesday, the president himself will
join the fray again to make the sales pitch, this time promoting the
colossal waste of taxpayer money associated with $250 per senior bribes
to be issued this summer and fall.

“‘Rarely is one afforded a glimpse into the dark heart of the contemporary “Heath Reform” project as unwittingly honest and searing as that provided by an exchange of opinions between Mark Thornton, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed regarding the FDA’s approval process for investigational cancer treatments, and a Dr. James Smith, replying in the Letters to the Editor page on May 13′”
