At least one member of Governor Sununu’s staff is claiming that the Alexander-Murray bill, which restores the Obamacare “CSR” payments that President Trump recently ended, reduces the deficit:CSR -Cost Sharing Reduction- payments are a euphemism for the federal government forcing taxpayers to reimburse insurance companies for losses incurred as a result of Obamacare requiring insurers to charge lower premiums and/or deductibles to lower-income insureds.
As HotAir has explained, CBO basically “cooked the books” in order to claim Alexander-Murray reduces the deficit. More specifically, Continue reading →
One of the themes that Democrats and their surrogates in the press have been sounding since the mass-shooting in Las Vegas is that we “need to talk about gun control” in order to prevent more mass shootings. Continue reading →
Ray Buckley -Chairman of the New Hampshire Democrat Party- was recently taken to task, and deservedly so, for referring to disaffected voters who might be inclined to vote for President Trump as “white supremacists.”
In my last post, I noted the manic reaction of the Democrats and their surrogates to a recently released report that shows the magnitude of voter fraud in the 2016 election. Here’s what one of those surrogates, the ACLU-NH, had to say:Note the reference to the Guare case. And from the most powerful Democrat surrogate in New Hampshire, WMUR, again reference to the Guare case:
But the Guare case actually shows how Democrat judges and Democrat Attorney Generals have made New Hampshire the poster-child for voter fraud. Continue reading →
I have posted quite a bit about voter fraud in New Hampshire since the 2016 election. But with (1) President Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity scheduled to meet in New Hampshire in just a few days and (2) the Speaker of the New Hampshire House recently releasing a report showing the potential magnitude of voter fraud in the 2016 election and (3) the manic response by the press and the Democrats to that report … another post is in order.
In order to assist the reader, I am going to divide this post into three parts. The first part will discuss how voter fraud should be defined (because the Democrats and the press have attempted to define it away), the second part will discuss the magnitude of voter fraud in the 2016 election, and the third part will discuss the problems with a recent “reform” to voting law in New Hampshire, SB 3.

Governor Chris Sununu, in response to President Trump’s impromptu news conference at Trump Tower, which was supposed to be about infrastructure, but quickly became all about Charlottesville:
Sununu’s tweet essentially parrots the elite-Left’s Charlottesville narrative.
In a nutshell, that narrative is that ALL the “counter-protesters,” including Antifa, were there to oppose the “racism and hatred” of the neo-Nazis, white-supremacists and anti-semitics (from here on, white-supremacists for short); that Trump was engaging in “moral equivalency” when he said “many sides” shared blame for the violence in Charlottesville; and that this “moral equivalency” emboldens white-supremacists. And explicitly in some cases, but more often by insinuation, that Trump engages in this “moral equivalency” because he is sympathetic to white-supremacists and/or does not want to alienate his base, a sizable number of whom are white-supremacistss.
There is so much wrong with this narrative that it is hard to know where to begin. Continue reading →
Sevigny’s proposal is not reinsurance as that term has been historically understood.
Reinsurance does not require government intervention. It is a voluntary transaction between private insurers. An insurance company insures part of the policies it has written with one or more other insurance companies. The insurance company that wrote the insurance is protecting itself against claims being higher than anticipated. The insurance companies reinsuring the policies are essentially betting that claims will not be higher than anticipated.
What Sevigny is talking about bears no resemblance to true reinsurance. He wants to force insurance companies to pay into a government “pool of money” from which he will make payments to Obamacare insurers to cover their losses from Obamacare. Continue reading →
