Obamacare: Democrats Starting to
Run But There’s No Place to Hide

PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/16/2013 12:28:49 PM

It was inevitable that once the blanks contained in Obamacare began to be filled in, that even Democratic supporters of the law would start running away from it, so toxic it is going to be to any politician who supported it. The unintended — and intended – consequences are proving to be a nightmare for the health insurance consumer and the government seems powerless to do anything about it. A hearing on Thursday of the Senate Finance Committee turned into a Democratic Obamacare bashing-fest as four powerful Democratic Senators “laid into” the administration’s top regulator on new

The headline says "no where to hide." That´s how we feel about Obama Care death panels.

We should not assume that they never intended to wreck the current health care system. In order to make health care ´fair´ and ´equal´ we´ll have to return to the Stone Age.

Don´t forget convicted financial fraudster and husband to loathsome Dem Rep Shakowsky wrote outlines for Obamacare while in Prison!
Nothing to do with healthcare-it´s all about collapsing the system and control.
Dems should be wiped out on 2014 if they don´t vote to repeal.

Why are Bsucus, Cantwell, et al upset? Ocare was intended to be a disaster so as to pave the way for single-payer. Isn´t that what they want?

The ones now complaining were the ones behind the locked and closed doors that didn´t even read the bill they allowed their staffers to write, after being drafted by their peer´s spouse who was in prison when he drafted obamacare.
There only salvation at this point would be to see to it the entire bill was rescinded and sign on to Senator Cruz´s bill which he authored.

Look, I hate to post a second time with a simple question--but why can´t the House just vote not to fund this garbage? They should have a majority.

Those who are hoping that 0bamacare is a train that is directly taking the ´Rat Party into oblivion and all we have to do is watch the fun, might be making the same mistake we made in ´08 and´12. The evil nexus between Liberals and the ´Free Phoners´ is deadly and will survive 0bamacare. A lot of proactive organizing at the grassroots is going to be needed.

The GOP should point out the every single concern coming from a Democrat can be found among the amendments proposed by GOP. Then let the Dems talk about how they might fix the mess. Yes, some children in college are covered by the parents´ insurance. But low cost policies for students are largely gone because the removal of caps for medical payments in a single year made the premiums go up. The high risk pools for the uninsured were just limited because the $5 Billion is going to run out. Every predicted disaster is coming true.

My husband is a physician. He just got his first contract for participation in one of the health insurance exchanges. It reads as though he is already guilty of defrauding the system--they just have to get the patient records and the financial records to prove it. My husband will have to take every patient referred to him by a PCP in the plan if the referral is within the domain of his specialty. And the PCP will have to take every new patient assigned to him/her by the plan, unless they are taking no new patients whatsoever.

Um, no thanks.

2,700 pages is now 15,000+ trying to explain what was "really meant."

The answer? Throw it all out and let us get back to square one which gave great access to everyone except the self-employed and some working for small companies. Don´t want to buy insurance? Then pay when you get there with something; a cigarette pack, take off that diamond ring, give up that tongue stud, a dollar, cut off a tattoo. No tickey? No Shirtey!

One "pundit" I read said he could write the entire health-care reform in seventeen pages. Make insurance available to anyone even with pre-existing conditions with a rider if appropriate. Cut the ER nonsense, i.e. frequent flyers, baby factories, drunks, etc except for life threatening care to all. Make "good" insurance available.

Everyone pays something.

I don´t believe this at face value. If any dems are condemning Obamacare it´s to save their own skin in the next election,not because they´re really against the government taking over a huge segment of the economy.

I´m a big believer in the theory of random selection in nature and it´s ill effects it thrusts on some people while others thrive,unscathed.

Obamacare was constructed to exclude as many left leaning people as possible from paying into it.I mean there was over a 100 carve outs before the ink was dry..Even so,by simple random selection,Obama supporters are going to get hit by the unfathomable costs of this scheme.My guess is Obama hopes that 50%+1 benefits for free.

States are broke from medicaid and are caving into Obamacare but then who supplies the money to the feds? This is a simple cost shift from state taxpayers to federal taxpayers or having to borrow more money.

Popping the Rand Paul Bubble
American Spectator, by Jed Babbin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/21/2014 5:08:06 AM     Post Reply
Rand Paul will never be elected president—and that is a very good thing for our country, for a great many reasons. Paul is a libertarian first, a Republican second, and a conservative only when his libertarianism accidentally intersects with conservative values. And that’s not very often. Republicans, especially conservatives, have fought for civil rights for more than fifty years. Democrats were the principal opponents of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Paul, however, has gotten himself into trouble over the matter. For example, in an April 2010 videotaped with the Louisville Courier-Journal, he was asked whether he would have voted for the

   

 



 
Ignoring an Inequality Culprit:
Single-Parent Families
Wall Street Journal, by David Maranto & Michael Crouch    Original Article

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

US college students studying abroad prime
targets for espionage activity, FBI warns

The FBI has issued a stern warning to U.S. college students studying abroad: Beware of foreign intelligence officers who are discreetly targeting young, often naive Americans for espionage activities. Glenn Shriver seemed like any other adventure-seeking college student -- embarking on a study abroad program to China in 2004 while majoring in international affairs at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. The cash-strapped college junior from Jenison, Mich., soon became an easy target of Chinese intelligence officers, who first paid him to write political papers in what seemed like a benign job. The People´s Republic of China officers then befriended Shriver

Fracking Foes Cringe as
Unions Back Drilling Boom

After early complaints that out-of-state firms got the most jobs, some local construction trade workers and union members in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia say they´re now benefiting in a big way from the Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas boom. That vocal support from blue-collar workers complicates efforts by environmentalists to limit the drilling process known as fracking. "The shale became a lifesaver and a lifeline for a lot of working families," said Dennis Martire, the mid-Atlantic regional manager for the Laborers´ International Union, or LIUNA, which represents workers in numerous construction trades. Martire said that as huge quantities of natural

HONOLULU-- Officials say a 16-year-old boy is "lucky to be alive" and unharmed after flying from California to Hawaii stowed away in a plane´s wheel well, surviving cold temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen. "Doesn´t even remember the flight," FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night. "It´s amazing he survived that." The boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport Sunday morning with no identification, Simon said. "Kid´s lucky to be alive," Simon said.

After a lengthy study of the plans for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. State Department issued an 11-volume report back in January confirming what most experts had already concluded long before then: the vital project would not damage the environment or increase the rate of carbon pollution. But liberal activists weren’t happy and have used the 90-day automatic review process that followed that report to furiously lobby the administration to stop the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast refineries. The key player in that effort was Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental

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

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

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
