Post-election flood of
‘Obamacare’ rules expected

Politico, by Jennifer Haberkorn

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 11/5/2012 5:21:14 PM

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.
We must give Romney the troops that he needs to get this country moving.

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

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. (Snip) At Dodger Stadium, the quake briefly interrupted the baseball game between the LA Dodgers and the Angels.

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.

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 Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
