Post-election flood of
‘Obamacare’ rules expected

Politico, by Jennifer Haberkorn

Original Article

The bottled-up rules to set up President Barack Obama’s health care reform law are going to start flowing quickly right after Election Day. But how long will that last? That depends on who wins the presidency. he once-steady stream of regulations and rules from the Obama administration — instructions for insurance companies, hospitals and states on how to put the law in place — has slowed to a trickle in recent months in an attempt to avoid controversies before the election.(Snip)HHS is expected to begin to release the backlog of regulations.

In PA kids on medicade have been cut off from their regular doctors - this includes disabled kids who need the services of specialists, kids that need leg braces and neurologists - as their providers are switched around somehow due to Obamacare. It's only supposed to be temporary. We'll see.

I am not worried. I believe all the promises Romney//Ryan have made and I expect aggressive action to get rid of Obamacare.

If the American people want rid of this law they have to at least give Romney a GOP Senate. Not really sure how much of Obamacare can be ''gutted'' using mere reconciliation - but I suspect quite a lot). As for those impending 'permanent rules', those rules would be like what my dentist likes to call 'permanent crowns'. They can be yanked off with a bit of effort by the new administration.

Ouch!

These are people who are SUPPOSED TO represent the citizens of this country and do what the citizens want. So instead, they hide what they are doing until it is too late to do anything to stop it?? Talk about tyrants and dictators!!! This is NOT our supposed Representative Government!! This is pure evil!

The SCOTUS has already determined that States can’t be punished for not implementing -0-care.

Yes, -0- will rig the place to burn down as he leaves the room – it’s what small-minded megalomaniacs do. The majority of the country doesn’t want -0-care, and 2010 and this election are largely about it. Ergo, -0- will try to implement as much as possible against the will of the people. Anything he does now, however, can still be undone. It won’t be until the program is actually funded, set up and running that it will be impossible to uproot.

I also don’t agree that the full repeal of -0-care will be “impossible” without 51 GOP votes in the Senate. Democrats may be stupid in general, but they also have a certain degree of political self-preservation instinct. It won’t be difficult to pull in the necessary votes.

Please ! No matter what State you are in, please vote for the Senate candidate with the (R) after their name tomorrow.

Everyone should know that the healthcare insurers are freaking out over a Romney/Ryan win--and if the Senate goes under Republican control. You'll remember that most were among the biggest cheerleaders for the ACA (Obamacare)--and throw in there one of the biggest Medicare Advantage insurers, AARP.

What you may not know is that every insurer has been planning around the ACA for two years. All their plans around care models in primary care and with health systems, plus the insurance exchanges, have been knocked into the proverbial cocked hat.

This is not to defend the insurers AT ALL. They have squeezed physicians and other providers like lemons. They have made it difficult to provide care with prior authorizations. They have slowed payments to smaller practices so they go broke. Their senior management and CEOs are compensated well beyond their real worth. So it's ironic that a new administration would kick their best laid plans in the pants....

Wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see some of those hidden rules turn out to require:

- full coverage of sex-change surgery
- mandatory abortions for all minority mothers and those who make less than $100K a year
- contraceptive dispensing machines in every building open to the public, including churches
- no healthcare for anyone who smokes, except pot smokers, or who can be shown to have purchased soda or red meat in the last 3 years
- no healthcare for anyone over 55 or under 6 months

Read the article. Spells out why the regulations would come fast and furious if Obama wins and even faster and more furious if Romney wins.

The part I find most interesting though is why they want all this hidden until after the election. It is pretty obvious that they know the regulations will be unpopular, otherwise then would at least announce what the regulations are going to be. Apparently, they think the American people like surprises -- or are too stupid to realize what they are up to.

Brought to you by the Demonrat party. You can bet your boots that Piglosi and dingy Harry will not have the same insurance that you will be forced to participate in. The congressional staffers are just as corrupt, since they will also have elite ruling class health care. Big Government is not our friend.

Vote R tomorrow and every election.

The National Security Agency has eyes and ears everywhere. At least, so we thought. In 2012, during a classified but widely-known operation at Fort Meade, MD, government crypotographers and developers downloaded the OpenSSL source code, as it does with dozens of other software published on the Web. The operation´s objective was to find weaknesses in the library and exploit those vulnerabilities as part of wider efforts by the intelligence agency to conduct mass-scale surveillance. Executives and senior officials heralded it as one of the biggest vulnerability discoveries in the intelligence agency´s recent

Mickey Rooney´s legacy includes raising

The legacy of Mickey Rooney, who died on April 6 in California at age 93, goes far beyond the silver screen. The prolific film star did a service for millions of elderly in this country by helping to publicize the scourge of financial elder abuse. Whether it´s fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls, investments, grandparent scams, or the far more insidious deceptions by neighbors, friends, employees, and relatives, such exploitation is rampant and on the rise.(Snip) In September 2011, Rooney´s court-appointed conservator, Michael.

Los Angeles - A shallow 5.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area Friday causing power cuts, gas leaks and bursting water mains, and stopping rides at Disneyland. While no injuries were reported, objects fell from shelves and furniture toppled over, according to photos posted on social media, while TV pictures showed a car flipped over by a rockslide.

These should be avoidable Measles has made a comeback, at least in New York City, where as many as 19 cases have been confirmed. New York City isn’t an anomaly, though. Diseases that are and have been avoidable in the U.S. thanks to vaccines, are resurfacing all across the country. Measles, for instance, was considered wiped out in 2000, but there have been several outbreaks in the past few years.

According to authorities, the body of L´Wren Scott was discovered hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant around 10 a.m. in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that´s because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association, no one had a ready explanation for that astounding finding by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(Snip) Anti-obesity campaigners credited everything from changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income women and children to the elimination of trans-fats from fast food, more physical activity in child-care

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
