Pathway to citizenship could
increase Obamacare cost up to
$300 billion over a decade

Daily Caller, by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/5/2013 12:56:18 PM

Any immigration package in which current illegal immigrants are made eligible for Obamacare — in the form of either exchanges or Medicaid — could increase costs to the federal government by between $120 billion to $200 billion in its first decade, according to internal calculations by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee that were obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller. GOP Senate Budget Committee staffers explained to TheDC that the estimates assume that the law’s provision capping total spending on exchange subsidies, which is set to begin in 2019, is enforced.

These kinds of predictions are never accurate. Multiply them all by 10 and you are closer to the actual number.

JFK went to germany, and made that memorable statement "Ich be eine berliner" (which apparently translated to I am a german pastry)
Aliens may be able to step across the U.S. border and claim U.S. citizenship on the spot, if congressman conyers gets his way.
That would make them eligible for kenyancare.
In Canada, a temporary non resident alien is not covered for national health insurance. And when a temporary worker is given landed status (the equivalent of our green card) there is still a 90 day waiting period before the health insurance kicks in.

Older Americans are early
winners under health law
Associated Press, by Carla K. Johnson*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/17/2014 3:57:59 PM     Post Reply
Chicago - For many older Americans who lost jobs during the recession, the quest for health care has been one obstacle after another. They're unwanted by employers, rejected by insurers, struggling to cover rising medical costs and praying to reach Medicare age before a health crisis. These luckless people, most in their 50s and 60s, have emerged this month as early winners under the nation's new health insurance system. Along with their peers who are self-employed or whose jobs do not offer insurance, they have been signing up for coverage in large numbers, submitting new-patient forms at doctor's offices and filling prescriptions

Pelosi: the Founding Fathers

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

If you’re a conservative, you don´t need to silence the opposition. In fact, we conservatives want liberals to talk, to make buffoons of themselves, to prove their folly. We want liberals to expound upon their ridiculous ideas, to show the world exactly what they´re about. Nancy Pelosi? Give that tiresome woman a microphone. Chatty liberals are the best advertisement for conservatism. But liberals just can’t have conservatives speaking. We’ll tell the truth, and that’s why liberals need to shut us up. Their traditional intimidation tactics are wearing out. Calling someone a “racist” used to be a devastating moral indictment. Liberals’ promiscuous employment of

   

 

  


 
Conservative group releases
Obamacare alternative aimed
at paving way for full repeal
Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/17/2014 2:30:41 PM     Post Reply
Last month, a group of Republican senators unveiled a health care plan that grappled with how to create an alternative to President Obama´s health care law as part of a strategy to repeal it. A conservative group known as the 2017 Project, headed by Jeffrey Anderson, has released another proposal rooted in the following premise: "The common formulation is that we need to ´repeal and replace´ Obamacare. The truth is more nearly the reverse: We need to advance a winning alternative to pave the way to full repeal." Like the proposal offered by Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., Richard Burr, R-N.C.,

House Dems to use longshot tactic to
force votes, tarnish GOP in midterms
Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/17/2014 2:09:51 PM     Post Reply
House Democrats are vowing to try a rarely used tactic to force votes in the GOP-led chamber on the minimum wage and immigration reform, a strategy that will likely fail but might hurt Republicans with voters in this year’s elections. The tactic is known as a “discharge petition." It would require the minority party, in this case Democrats, to persuade roughly two dozen Republicans to defy their leadership and join Democrats in forcing a vote on setting the federal minimum wage at $10.10 an hour. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said fellow chamber Democrats will push the issue when

The White House is recognizing President´s Day 2014 with a blog post entitled "Dive into the Presidency for President´s Day." The post features a biography of Thomas Jefferson, a high-definition photo of a painting of George Washington, a special interactive gallery that includes "pages from George Washington´s first inaugural address and other inaugural moments from 13 Presidential Libraries," and two videos of the White House curator exploring the history of the Presidential Seal and also President Theodore Roosevelt´s official presidential portrait. The post ends, however, inviting visitors to "learn about President Obama and keep up with his administration by following @WhiteHouse

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision." Some Republicans, particularly Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, have refocused attention on former President Bill Clinton for the Lewinsky scandal, saying Democrats can´t frame themselves as the champions

ANN COULTER: Different branches have different roles. In terms of writing legislation, the president´s role is quite clearly laid out as he sort of indicates but then ignores with his pen, with his veto pen. That is his role. Then he has a phone. He can call Congressmen, he can call Senators and say, this is what I´d like in the law. But other than that, he has no role in writing legislation. He is vetoing legislation by refusing to enforce it. The constitution demands that the president of the United States take care that the laws be faithfully executed. He

Houston residents will have an opportunity to meet some of Obamacare’s mysterious navigators at a “Rock-Enroll” party tomorrow in Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-Texas) district. The navigators have been a key point of Republican criticism against the healthcare law’s rollout. “This is reported, interestingly enough, that in California with the so-called navigators, the people who are the certified navigators, over 40 of them are convicted criminals,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on the floor this week. “Forty convicted criminals were hired and certified, certified, to be navigators in California in spite of the fact that people are being asked to give

Is CAIR a RICO case?

The Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, claims to be an anti-defamation organization. In fact, as we shall see, it is anything but. CAIR was founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmed, who had ties with the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by the terrorist organization Hamas. Therefore, it is an outgrowth of the IAP. It opened its first office in Washington, D.C. with a donation from the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the largest Islamic charity in the U.S. CAIR should be, but is not, registered as a foreign agent.

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.

Presidential Library, her voice breaking as she recounted the “agony of Vietnam” that engulfed Lyndon Baines Johnson and the pain she feels to this day of witnessing his presidency judged through the prism of a failed war. “Nobody wanted that war less than Lyndon Johnson,” said Ms. Johnson, 66, who is the president’s younger daughter. “No matter how hard he tried, he didn’t seem to be able to get out of that quagmire.

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. Default would have dire implications for the world economy. Even toying

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.

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
