'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was, appallingly, only half-right when she said of ObamaCare, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Full implementation, one expert now says, will leave 68 percent of Americans unable to keep their private health insurance plans.

Sixty-eight percent!

“Bottom line: of the 189 million Americans with private health insurance coverage ... at least 129 million will not be able to keep their previous health care plan ... by the end of 2014,” Christopher Conover, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and Duke University's Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research, told The Daily Caller.

President Obama insisted nearly 30 times that Americans would be able to keep their insurance plans and doctors. On Monday, he denied ever saying such a thing. Barack Obama is either an ignoramus, a liar or both.

Given how thoroughly presidential statements “are vetted and fact-checked, it is pretty inconceivable that President Obama was not aware that he was engaged in some degree of truth-twisting,” Mr. Conover says.

ObamaCare's mandated “improvements” — including those that force Americans to buy coverage they don't need — raise costs and limit choice. “ObamaCare essentially says ‘Uncle Sam knows best,'” according to Conover.

The more that Americans learn about ObamaCare, the clearer it is that this law is a disaster. And the more Americans it hurts, the more Americans will demand its repeal.
