WASHINGTON— Some families could get priced out of health insurance due to what´s being called a glitch in President Barack Obama´s overhaul law. IRS regulations issued Wednesday failed to fix the problem as liberal backers of the president´s plan had hoped. As a result, some families that can´t afford the employer coverage that they are offered on the job will not be able to get financial assistance from the government to buy private health insurance on their own. How many people will be affected is unclear. The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress
Mistake???? Ohhhh no. This was no mistake. This is quite deliberate. The progressive movement has always hated the working poor. Always. They were the undesirables that abortion was to have gotten rid of. Now that President Obama has no need for voters, they can be disposed of. They will be forced into a rationed care system that will refuse to care for any lifestyle related illnesses (smoking, obesity, drinking) and left to die. This will weed out the "untermensch" and control the population in line with Agenda 21 goals. Leaving only the educated and elite. With fully automated farming and manufacturing no need for the "little people" who just consume and reproduce.
Already happening. Church acquaintance has a teenage special needs child who has required tube feeding with prescriptive formula since forever. In Nov Mom was told by pharmacy that kid´s food was no longer covered with Obamacare changes. Now they have to buy Ensure type products to sustain which give many complications to digestion, let alone the cost. Mom & Dad feel this is the first track in the cattle chute to the death panel. Please pray for them & how many thousands of others facing these determinations by the Fatherland.
FTA: "The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law."
Is this a joke? I distinctly remember over one-half of Congress (the Republicans) begging for time to read the ACA so everyone would know what was in it before the vote. I recall Nancy Pelosi´s infamous statement, "We have to pass the bill so we can find out what´s in it."
It would be interesting to learn exactly who, and/or what organization(s), is responsible for this mess. Until then, I can only say, "Thanks for nothing, John Roberts."
The people who wrote this article need to do a little bit more research, as it was not a bipartisan Congress that passed Obama Care, it was the Democrats in Congress who passed that law, as not one Republican voted for the law. When Obama blames the Congress for the many deficiencies in Obama Care, he should be directing his complaints to the Democrats in Congress as they are the people who passed the law.
Propaganda Alert... ObieCare only passed by bending the rules so only dems could pass it. No matter how hard they lie, peeps know the truth. Medicare drug co-pays are increased to +300% of 2012 cost, depending on the drug. We are already suffering.
There´s no glitch in this law.What we´re seeing is an intentional effort to corner a relative handful of middle class whites paying the price for having the gumption to be self sufficient.What this says is there´s no escape hatch for the people Obama targeted to begin with.
It´s an absolute mathematical impossibility for the shrinking workforce to finance the exorbitant cost of this plan which will add 50 million more people to an already broke medicaid system,many of whom don´t even belong here. Just take the costs of one illegal mexican get kidney dialysis treatments for months on end.
People that pay for their health care are going to be priced out and will not be able to afford a doctor´s visit. Only those that get their visits free will be at the doctor´s office. The payors will have to get back rather than pay the $500 for themselves and the 5 free ones in front they will have to wait on. A neighbor calls an ambulance all the time -- $2500 a call and free, but not for me.
A military couple whose engagement ring was secretly bought by actor Paul Walker came forward today after finally having their suspicions confirmed that the star was behind the act of amazing generosity. Soldier Kyle Upham and his new wife Kristen were in a Santa Barbara jewellery store in 2004 looking for a diamond ring shortly before he was sent on his second deployment back to Iraq. The couple quickly realized that the other shopper in the store was Fast And The Furious star Walker and struck up a conversation. Kyle revealed to the actor that he had just come back
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke today at Liberty University, blasting what she called a "war on Christmas" and promoting her latest book. Palin, LU Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. and college spokesman Johnnie Moore, sat atop the stage at convocation to discuss Palin´s career, her beliefs and her book - "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas." (Snip) "[Palin is] attacked more than anyone I can remember," Falwell said Wednesday. However, her remarks this morning were met with thunderous waves of applause from the surrounding students.
The Obama´s younger dog is still getting used to the spotlight as it made a major faux pas during a White House ceremony Wednesday afternoon. Sunny Obama jumped up on a toddler who was a guest at the unveiling of the official Christmas decorations, pushing the little girl to the ground. The girl, later identified as Ashtyn Gardner, is one of the hundreds of children from military families who were on hand to help the First Lady display this year´s decorations. Scroll down for video -Two life-sized replicas of the Portuguese water dogs made of satin ribbons are one of
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
A stunning new poll of young adults aged 18 to 29 shows that in large numbers, they have turned against President Obama and ObamaCare. Among the youngest in this group, those aged 18-24, a full 52% support a recall effort that would throw Obama out of office. The number is only a little better among 18-29 year-olds, 47%. Individual members of Congress actually fare a little better with 45% of Millennials favoring a recall. A majority do, however, favor recalling Congress as a whole. Since his reelection, Obama´s overall approval with young adults has plummeted 11 points to just 41%;
SPRINGFIELD — Illinois lawmakers narrowly approved a historic, sweeping overhaul of government worker pension systems Tuesday, overcoming years of political and philosophical differences in an attempt to address one of the state´s most pressing financial problems. The collective exhale from the state´s political leaders may be short-lived, however. Even before Gov. Pat Quinn carries through with his promise to sign the bill, unions are prepping a lawsuit to try to overturn it. They contend the benefit cuts are unconstitutional and unfair to employees and retirees. Supporters hailed the bill as a solution that would "ensure retirement security" for current and
If you need a minute to scrape your brain from the ceiling, go ahead, because this is quite stunning. This Friday, conservative commentator and Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp is guest-hosting Piers Morgan Live, and her guest for the full hour is Glenn Beck. On CNN. That’s right, this is actually happening on a non-Fox News network. Beck’s been making the media rounds to promote his new book Miracles and Massacres, even returning to his old Fox stomping grounds to go one-on-one with Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. But this time, Beck is taking an even farther walk down memory lane,
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
