Beware: ObamaCare’s now reality
New York Post, by BETSY McCAUGHEY

Original Article

Posted By:Scouts Out, 11/13/2012 11:44:43 AM

President Obama’s re-election and Democratic gains in the US Senate end any possibility of repealing the Obama health law. It will roll out as written, imposing major changes soon on you and your family. If you are uninsured because you can’t afford it, help may be on the way. But if you are one of the 250 million Americans with coverage, there are big problems ahead. If you get your health insurance through a job, you might lose it as of Jan. 1, 2014. That’s when the new “employer mandate” kicks in, requiring employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide the government-designed health plan or pay a fine. The government plan is so expensive, it adds $1.79 per hour to the cost of a full-time employee. That’s incidental if you're hiring neurosurgeons but a hefty increase for hiring busboys and sales clerks.

Thank you Obama voters - in addition to degrading the quality of the world´s best health care system, you are also burdening employers with yet another upaid-for entitlement the American people didn´t ask for that represents 1/6th of the total economy. The market has spoken, dropping 400 pts since Election Day and sparking a string of layoffs from all sectors. My friends - we will look back at the days of 8% unemployment as the good old days.

I can´t imagine the vast mind trick anyone could play on themselves to have EVER forgotten the horrible healthcare mess and the way it was foisted by this incompetent person upon a once-free country. Obama voters owe an apology to the founders of this country and her defenders through the years

Our republic died on November 6, 2012.

NØbamacare is just another rotting festering sore on the rotting carcas of what is left of our nation.

It will soon implode under the weight of it´s own socialist excesses and rot.

RIP USA! 236 years was a pretty good run...

Are there any lawmakers out there with the courage to push a law mandating all federal employees - (that includes all 3 branches of govn) - must participate under the Obamacare plan? No more special treatment for federal employees? After all, doesn`t the 14th Amendment mandate equal treatment under the law?

We´re one of these losing our coverage Jan 2014. I have two kids with TI Diabetes (or auto-immune diabetes) and I don´t know what we´re going to do. It would cost us $2500 a month to not only keep them alive but give them the best quality of life we can. They both have insulin pumps, CGMs and blood glucose monitors. We´re looking at them losing their pumps, losing the CGMs and testing far less often. How do I do that to them? How do I tell my 17 yr old who has been on an insulin pump since he was not quite 5 years old you have to go on shots? How do I tell my 10 year old you have to go back on shots? I am angry, no FURIOUS at what the party of the free crap voters have done to my family!

There is no way for the government to finance it. This piece socialistic crap will fall under the weight of its own massive expense to administer. It is unsustainable!!!

I will go along with #12 on this one. To that end, everyone must do their part: to the extent possible, make sure you´re in the pool with no insurance. The more weight we can pile on this camel, the better.

To be sure, there will be plenty of medical service available, you´ll just have to look in different places for it and be prepared to pay cash. These are different times we´re in and they call for different measures. Take care of yourself.

Sorry to burst your bubble, %12, but look what Canada and Great Britain have done. They´ve cut back services. Michael Moore may have been psychic -- it won´t take long before Cuba really does have better medical care than the U.S. And the ones who are going to complain the loudest are the ones who the Dems claimed they were going to help. They aren´t going to be happy campers when they have to sit in a waiting room for 2 days before they see a doctor.

As a conservative, southern, pro-life, white Christian man I know I won´t even get a slot in the waiting list to have my case considered by a death panel. When this happens I will be sure to let my two lame-brained sisters and goofy BIL who I know voted for this socialist poseur know exactly what is happening and who is to blame. I may die a bitter old man, but perhaps they will finally realize a bit of guilt and shame for what they helped do to me.

Sorry, but I´m feeling pretty despondent about this whole mess today.

Jesse Jackson was on America’s Newsroom today to discuss gun control. Jackson said assault weapons are a threat to national security. Jackson also said gun manufacturers should be held responsible for shootings.“These semi-automatic weapons, these assault weapon, can only kill people and in fact are threats to national security. The young man who did the killing in Aurora, Colorado with the arsenal he had. He was right near the airport, right near the runways near the airport in Denver. He could shoot down airplanes. so this is a matter of homeland security… We need to make manufacturers more accountable for their product.“

In a new television ad, the Obama campaign mocks Mitt Romney’s promise to end the federal subsidy to PBS: “Bernie Madoff. Ken Lay. Dennis Kozlowski. Criminals. Gluttons of greed,” the Obama campaign's dramatic voice over says. “And the evil genius who towered over them?” The video shows a silhouette of the large feathered creature from Sesame Street: “Big Bird,” Romney says. The announcer moves in for the kill: "Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street. Mitt Romney. Taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
