States Should Absolutely
Refuse to Set Up
Obamacare Exchanges

National Review Online, by Mario Loyola

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/13/2012 9:55:25 PM

Proponents of Obamacare are making one argument that some conservatives may find appealing — namely that it is much better, from a states’ rights point of view, to set up state-based exchanges than to let the feds come in and do it themselves. This argument is absolutely wrong. Allowing your states to be deputized as instruments of federal policy is just as bad as bowing to federal commandeering of state agencies, which is unconstitutional. Let’s begin with the principle that the federal government is not allowed to command states or their officials to do anything. That was settled in

Wake up folks... Sebilius has spent the last 3 years renovating Planned Parenthood abortion clinics into "HealthCare Centers".
She transferred $2-3 B to middlemen, to hold the funds as she sets them up.

First paragraph seems absolutely right.

You cannot partner with Washington. That is not the way it works. It is only the way the feds will talk to get your panties off.

Besides, if ObamaCare and exchanges will be so great then let the federal government have all the glory. They can contract the operation of the exchanges to the Post Office which has facilities everywhere. That should allow a fast and effective start at minimum cost.

And having only one master, Washington, will simplify everything for patients, medical professionals, insurance companies, and suppliers of everything used in medicine.

No need for the complexity of a state agent in the mix.

A resistance needs to be organized by all states willing to stand up for states rights and defy Federal dictates. All real Americans only have the House between us and Obama´s oppression. United we stand, divided we fall.

I seem to remember reading that there is a problem with a federal exchange in a state that won´t set up it´s own. There is no funding mechanism for the federal route.

There was a drafting error in the thousands of pages of the law which I am sure they wish they had back. #7 has it right. The feds now have to scare and stampede the states into setting up exchanges. States should just say NO. Saying NO to Obama is always the right thing to do!

Obama will find a way to get every state to cave on this.His "more than one way to skin a cat" rule applies to everything. Notice how he just cut Ohio´s food stamps. Why Ohio only? He could use similar tactics with federal money across all programs to get you to buckle.

It´s a two-fer for Obama because he´ll organize thugs to make villains out of republican governors.

Maybe I´ve missed something along the way but I haven´t seen Obama play by the rules on anything.He can´t get to single payer unless he co-opts all the states into federal hooks on exchanges first.

This was on the ballot here in Florida. Our governor was looking for back up from voters to not set up an exchange. However, the amendment was defeated so our state cannot follow your advice.

Feds might not be able to do it in a large number of states without asking Congress for more money or for amendments to the law.

This is really what ticks me off. This piece of tyrannical garbage was passed under "Budget Reconciliation" which means it doesn´t add a penny to the deficit and in a government that hasn´t passed a budget in 3 years! Oh, but the GAO testified under oath that it would save us money. So now what do we have? A law passed under Legislative trickery that doesn´t meet the standard. In any normal situation, it would be considered null and void on its face, but not with our idiotic Congress. It´s also evil that it exempts members of Congress and their staffs. Pure, un-American, evil.

If Texas Gov. Rick Perry doesn´t fight this thing all the way to its death, it will be the end of his political career... which might be over anyway.

Please, please, please. Stop referring to this national travesty as "Obamacare". President Obama is NOT running again. This needs to be referred to as "Democrat Care that is forced upon you without a single Republican vote". This albatross needs to be hung around the Democratic Party and not Obama when it is fully implemented. People will begin to lose their livelihood because of this and need to place their anger at the right people, the Democratic Party. I will continue to post this. Please pass it on, we ALL must start doing this now.

A ban on healthcare exchanges was on the ballot here in Missouri and was passed in every county, even the three, yes only three, that went for Zero: Jackson (KC), Boone (Columbia) and STL county and city. It could be that some weren´t clear on just what they were voting for, but we´ll take it; that is until some judge decides to overrule the will of the people.

In SC we have not set up a healthcare exchange and our largely Republican state house will take this up as a priority.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
