Obamacare Architect: Affordable
Care Act ´Beyond Comprehension´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/12/2013 9:51:16 PM

Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act, said on Tuesday that the healthcare law, set to go into full effect in less than eight months, is “probably the most complex piece of legislation ever passed by the United States Congress” and “is just beyond comprehension.” Rockefeller said he is concerned that early missteps with implementing the healthcare overhaul may cascade into confusion and chaos. The law, said Rockefeller, is “so complicated and if it isn’t done right the first time, it will just simply get worse.” Rockefeller’s consternation echoes comments made earlier this

and, you will try, Dems, to blame Obamacare on the Rebubs...and, with the willing help of the MSM you will get away with it. So, the bottom line is that America will be totally screwed again.

Senator Rockefeller should draft legislation to repeal Obamacare if he feels it will fail.

0care cannot be "done right" because it is a steaming massive pile of cobblers.

Years ago Democrats were always saying if a small country like Sweden can have free health insurance why can´t we? If I heard it once I heard it a thousand times. There was no short, easy answer. They were not going to listen anyway.

Like every other whim they get, they just plow forward until they get what they want. They seldom learn anything through their constant failures.

When a rabid left winger like Rockefeller says "get it right the first time". It is code speak for "take your time" or in other words push the bad effects out beyond 2014. It is curious that Sebelius is saying exactly "admitting" that difficulties in 0bamacare were unanticipated. The ´Rats are running scared keep your eyes open.

Obamacare was never about health care, it was and is all about control. If the government can control to whom and how health care is delivered, it has the power of total control over you. If the progressives are successful in their zeal to grab our guns, it´s over. We are being pushed to the brink of civil dispbedience by progressive zealots who believe their goal is in sight. No matter what Mr. Rockefeller is saying now, the ACA is going directly as planned.

From internal provider point of view, we know it will have to be scrapped, John Roberts aside. The voting blocks alone of people who will NOT receive decent care of any kind, let alone quality, will determine whether it will be a storming of the Bastille or worse come not-too-distant election years.

Palliative care only for stroke patients over 65+. Strokes recoverable from with therapy now, O-care will not cover.

Big Sis says no one anticipated the complexity... Wrong. Everyone on this side tried to warn the Rats but they were not about to listen. Centralized control is the solution for Rats and the problem for everyone else. The left will not let complexity get in the way of their goals and when it causes problems they can blame that on others.

I wonder if John Roberts was paid off or threatened by Omaomao. I believe there is something really stinky about that one. Meanwhile, We´ve got a bunch of morons in Congress all set to legalize twelve million, twenty million, who really knows how many, undocumented Democrats. That will do wonders for our health care, won´t it? I´m starting to come to the conclusion that maybe, in the long run, the best hope for the late great USA is for the North Koreans to plant one right on top of Wa.D.C.

If J-Rock(D-WV), feels so poorly about the legislation he helped craft, then how about he lead a new effort to abolish this monstrosity, or if that doesn`t interest him, then an easier solution would be to pass a bill mandating all federal workers, an anyone else not currently subject to Obamacare, to be included in its mandate.

I`d love nothing better than to see J-Rock standing in line with me for 3 hours waiting for his 5 minute doctor visit.

Now that Jay Rockefeller will not be seeking re-election in 2014, he´s beginning to speak the truth. Many on the Left knew that this legislation was horrible, but they went along with it because that´s what Pelosi, Obama, and Reid wanted. The goal was not a good piece of legislation--the goal is to force American into a single-payer system. This horrible legislation will be that vehicle, and that´s why Democrats supported this. We can only hope (but not with the media´s help) that Americans will discover the damage before it´s too late.

#17 has it right. Obama stated this was his plan before being elected in 2008--passing this ´read later´, hasty legislation was the precursor for single payer. He even stated it would take 10-15 years to accomplish universal government healthcare. They are busy ruining private insurance and Medicare with the goal of a transition to universal single payer.

In what universe do you pass a bill you have not read nor do not understand? Ask any 2nd grader and they would not agree to anything so stupid and yet it was done (and will be done again with immigration and gun control). We need to empty the sewer in Washington and start by ousting Harry Reid, by taking the Senate, and John Boehner by electing conservatives to the House and having a "pay back" for his misdeeds.

One thing is for certain, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), can afford to pay for his healthcare out of pocket. He will not be needing O-Care, and will just pay the fine and go to Cuba, Mexico, or Saudi Arabia and pay whatever the price is so he won´t have to wait in line, get a pill instead of an operation and a full staff of medical professionals standing by rather than a SEIU government employee clerk handing him end of life pamphlets when he is 85 years old.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
