Will multiple states’ non-cooperation
be too much for ObamaCare?

Hot Air, by Erika Johnsen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/13/2012 4:26:24 AM

The answer, of course, is an emphatic yes, since by its very nature, ObamaCare is too much for ObamaCare, but individual states’ freedom to opt out of designing their own state-specific health insurance exchanges is turning out to be yet another flaw in the oh-so-masterful plan. Last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that the government is extending the deadline by which states must submit their blueprints for their exchanges, meant to be tools with which consumers can shop around for insurance options, but all states must still indicate

Even dumass blue states realize they can´t afford this crap long term and they´ll also become magnet states for freeloaders.I wonder how many health freeloaders moved to Mass. after Romneycare passed?

But blue states also love federal handouts,even if they´re just a short term fix. HHS has tons of money to set these exchanges up but it´s till like herding cats.

Every state has their own insurance regulators and this is turning those groups on their heads.

This whole thing was pass the law and figure out the details later. Pelosi saying you have to pass it to find out what was in it was the answer to the scatterbrained approach.

Wait until people figure out they can duck the fines by not filing their taxes.

Gee, I´d just hate to see wittle afumuhtuve axshun boy´s socialist experiment fail. NOT! Give the DC commies some payback, America. Resist, refuse, play dumb, ignore, don´t cooperate. It will be fun to watch the DC commies scramble to put all the little fires.

It´s still hard to fathom the Supreme Court ruling for this debacle, Robert´s treason notwithstanding. Some Luc "optimists" said, "Oh that was ingenious by Roberts-he upheld the integrity of the court
and with a wink, punted it to the voters to decide!". I countered, "The writing is on the wall, the healthcare bill is not going to be repealed, no matter who wins the presidency".

There was too much momentum, in implementation, to believe otherwise. The Supreme Court involvement was nothing more than a sideshow, a bone thrown to the legaleeze types. The socialists got all channels wired their way-it´s just a game to them. No usual procedures against them will work, like it should, like it used to.

Texas´ Plan:

1. NO we will not participate in Obamacare, it is a disaster!

2. Each individual has the option of getting their own insurance. If they choose not to, that´s ok with us.

3. Those with pre-existing conditions will likely choose insurance but pay higher rates (Texas does not subscribe to the notion that others should pay someone elses bill). Those that have self induced issues will be on their own.

Next question?

Here in Florida we had an opportunity to opt out but the amendment failed. Guess people here are just too stupid to vote for something that would have been in their best interests.

We recommend John Cornyn in
GOP primary for the U.S. Senate
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/17/2014 6:45:15 AM     Post Reply
Sen. John Cornyn is a principled lawmaker whose brand of Texas conservatism makes him the best choice in this eight-way GOP primary race for the Senate. Cornyn is the deputy GOP Senate leader and a senior Republican on the Judiciary Committee. Holding these positions of influence can only bode well for Texas. (Snip)Attorney Linda Vega, 47, and small-business owners Dwayne Stovall, 48, Curt Cleaver, 47, also are on the ballot. They didn’t respond to interview requests, and their questionnaire answers give us pause about their ability to lead. Reid Reasor neither attended the interview nor filled out the questionnaire.

The IRS targets political speech again
Chicago Tribune, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/17/2014 5:47:33 AM     Post Reply
The Internal Revenue Service is used to being universally disliked every April 15. But this year, the widespread denunciations have started early, and for good reason. In November, the agency issued proposed new rules that are supposed to keep social welfare organizations from abusing their legal privileges by engaging in excessive electioneering. The effort came in response to complaints from Democrats about a 2012 surge in political spending by such tax-exempt groups, by the conservative Koch brothers and others to influence elections. The IRS wants to curb such efforts, and it doesn´t display much concern about the likely effect on free speech.

This is what a policy looks like when it dies and goes to hell. The FT reports that violence is ramping up in Syria, with Assad agents using devastating “barrel bombs” against rebel areas. More: According to the opposition Syrian National Council, 20,000 people have been killed in barrel-bomb campaigns since the start of the conflict in 2011. A Turkish official said about 2,000 had been killed since peace talks began in Geneva last month.

An extensive collection of papers related to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s years in the Arkansas governor’s mansion remains under tight control at a public library in Little Rock, with access restricted by the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock. The documents could provide new insight into the early chapter of the Clintons’ political careers, as reporters take a second look at Hillary Clinton’s past in light of the information contained in

Of Course He Should Be Impeached
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/17/2014 5:21:07 AM     Post Reply
Last week, Jeffrey Lord asked the following question in this space: “Should Obama be impeached?” I have enormous respect for Lord, and agree with virtually everything he writes, but his column reflects an unsettling trend in the way many view this issue. Most pundits and politicians discuss Obama’s serial violations of the Constitution as if mulling an interesting academic subject. They ponder such arcana as the definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” the number of Senate votes required to convict an impeached President, the effect of the process on the GOP’s electoral prospects in 2016, ad infinitum. Few, however, discuss

Are public-employee unions
toxic to their candidates?
San Francisco Chronicle, by Willie Brown    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/17/2014 5:09:49 AM     Post Reply
The real news in the San Diego mayoral race isn´t that a Republican won, but that the candidate backed by public-employee unions lost. That is a real shift in California politics. And it´s the second time it´s happened in a big-city mayoral race in less than a year. In San Diego on Tuesday, City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, a middle-of-the-road Republican, knocked the stuffing out of the union-backed Democrat, Councilman David Alvarez. And he did it in part by hammering on the big union money behind Alvarez, much of which came from out of town. In some ways it was a replay of the Los

Born and built amid gray-cloaked secrecy during the American Civil War, the H.L. Hunley -- the first submarine to sink an enemy ship -- has held tight to its murky mysteries. The 150th anniversary of the Hunley´s daring and dangerous raid will be marked this weekend and Monday, but the overarching question remains: What caused the submarine and its eight-member crew to slip to the bottom of the sea on the moonlit evening of February 17, 1864, after it signaled to shore a success that changed naval warfare. The Hunley, housed at a laboratory in North Charleston, South Carolina, has yielded its

The acting head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose appointment to the post raised eyebrows because of his scant law enforcement experience, told agency employees he will resign Friday, FoxNews.com has learned. John Sandweg, a former defense attorney who knew former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano from their days as political allies in Arizona and came to Washington with her, gave his notice just six months after taking the reins in August. In a letter Friday to coworkers, Sandweg said he will return to work in the private sector but gave no explanation for his departure. “Over

64% Of Americans Say ObamaCare Would Never
Have Passed If The Truth Had Been Known
Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller    Original Article

A new poll puts Obama’s false promise, “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it,” in perspective: 64% of Americans say ObamaCare would’ve never passed if Americans had known the truth in 2009. Moreover, the Fox news poll found the sentiment to be spread across all party lines, with 74% of Republicans, 68% of Independents and 54% of Democrats saying Obama’s unpopular healthcare program would never have passed. Even more troubling, 56% of Americans said ObamaCare was more about the government seizing control of citizens’ lives, versus just 40% who felt Obama’s plan was about improving healthcare. Perhaps the most troubling

Karl Rove called out former Governor Ted Strickland (D., Ohio) for his hypocritical attacks on Chris Christie’s competence on Fox News Sunday. Strickland alleged Christie was incompetent because he was unaware some of his subordinates ordered the GWB bridge closing. Rove countered with a story from the 2008 election cycle revealing one of Strickland’s own high ranking officials inappropriately accessed damaging information about Joe the Plumber which was eventually leaked, all allegedly without the former Ohio governor’s knowledge. Strickland denied that his appointee was ever directed to leak that information for political purposes, but as Rove pointed out the record suggests otherwise: KARL ROVE:

At 3:15 on the morning of March 13, 1964, a 28-year-old bar manager named Kitty Genovese drove her red Fiat into the parking lot of the LIRR station by her Kew Gardens home. As she walked home — she was only about “a hundred paces away” from the apartment she shared with her girlfriend, Mary Ann Zielonko — she heard a man’s footsteps close behind her. She ran, but the man, Winston Moseley, was too quick. He caught her, slammed her to the ground and stabbed her twice in the back. She screamed twice, once yelling, “Oh, God!

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen.

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one.
