Top Democrat: Obamacare ´Huge
Train Wreck Coming Down´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/17/2013 8:35:48 PM

Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) warned he sees “a huge train wreck coming down” with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, known to its critics as Obamacare. The candid comments came during a Wednesday hearing with Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “I´m very concerned that not enough is being done so far--very concerned," said Baucus. "Small businesses have no idea what to do, what to expect.” Baucus appeared frustrated with Sebelius’s unresponsiveness in supplying the senator with information designed to educate and assist citizens with understanding the massively complex healthcare overhaul.

Comments:
So why did these reprehensible Democrats allow that abomination to pass?? They should be in jail for perpetrating this fraud on the American people that will collapse our economy and destroy our health care system. It infuriates me like nothing ever has before.

Let me help. If you have a small business you have 4 choices. 1. Lay off until you have 49. Cut everyone´s hours to a max of 28 per week. 3. Pay the fine and go bankrupt. 4. Buy expensive insurance and go bankrupt.

Number two in the Kabuki doubtfest. I agree with the prescient poster a day or two ago who suggesedt the Obamunists are terrified the public reaction to the early stages of ODon´tCare implementation will lose them the Senate, so they want to drag their feet for the next year or so.

If I remember correctly he was the one that demanded that Obama care protect the pharmaceutical industry and keep Medicare from seeking bids on drugs. So as a senior, under Part D we actually pay top dollar for the drugs and get pushed into the doughnut hole faster.

Today, my wife came home with our new insurance plan (her plan year, as a teacher, starts in September).

Last year, we downsized our plan to a higher deductible plan because of price increases. This year, that plan has increased by $210 per month.

Maybe Obama said that under his plan, premiums would go UP (not down) by $2500 a year and he was just misquoted. Deductables doubled.

Thanks, Max!

I also ask the question why these democrats voted for this horrid and wretched bill; they did not even read it. The democrats schemed behind closed doors and had to make dirty deals to get it passed. First the clown, Al Franken, had to "steal" the election, funny how many votes they found in closets and trunks. When we all suffer from this horrid bill and get terrible healthcare, just remember, not one republican voted for this bill.

Every time a Republican is on TV or the radio, he or she should be quoting the latest news about the catastrophe that is Obamacare and reminding people that this is 24/7 Democrats doing. Make it so that whenever people think about how their healthcare is turning into a mess, they immediately think of the Democrats. This should be easy to do, but this is the stupid party.

As much as I agree with what this headline implies Baucus said, please read the whole article, and others containing his full statement. He said implementation would be a train wreck due to a "misinformed" (Demspeak for ignorant) public. He still loves Obamacare. He just thinks we´re too stupid to appreciate it.

President Obama on Tuesday warned Democratic donors that the party could not repeat the mistakes of the 2010 midterms, and must focus on turning out voters in November. "Democrats are really good at presidential elections these days, if I do say so myself,” said Obama at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in McLean, Va. “But there´s something about midterms." "We get a little sleepy,” he continued. “We don´t turn out the vote. That has to change." Obama spoke at the home of former Democratic Virginia Sen.

Moody’s Downgrades Chicago’s Credit Rating,

CHICAGO — Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded Chicago’s credit rating, citing the city’s unfunded pension liabilities. The agency announced Tuesday it’s lowering the rating on $8.3 billion in debt from A3 to Baa1, putting it only three notches above junk-bond status. Moody’s gave Chicago a negative outlook indicating another downgrade could occur if there’s no pension fix. Moody’s says the rating “reflects the city’s massive and growing unfunded pension liabilities.” Moody’s says those liabilities “threaten the city’s fiscal solvency” unless major revenue and other budgetary adjustments are adopted soon and are sustained for years to come. The lower rating means

The Rutgers University faculty council has passed a resolution calling for the school to rescind Condoleezza Rice’s invitation to speak at commencement. The former secretary of state drew the ire of the school’s professors for her “prominent role in [the Bush] administration’s efforts to mislead the American people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the existence of links between al Qaeda and the Iraqi regime.” Her efforts in the administration, according to the resolution,”led to the second Iraq war, which caused the death of over 100,000 men, women and children, and the displacement of millions of others.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he wants to get amnesty legislation done this year even as he insisted that the immigration reform he and President Barack Obama discussed in their White House meeting was not "amnesty." Boehner recently said that he and Obama agreed the most on immigration during their recent one-on-one meeting and both want legislation this year, which amnesty advocates believe may be the last chance to pass significant immigration reform. Obama said he would not sign a bill that does not have a pathway to citizenship in it or that creates two classes of people

Ted Cruz Slams Obama for Nominating Cop
Killer’s Advocate to DOJ Leadership

WASHINGTON, D.C.--President Obama recently nominated Debo Adegbile to be head of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice. Texas Senator Ted Cruz today spoke out against the nomination and criticized Adegbile, who previously held a leadership position at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF). During his time with the black activist group, Adegbile volunteered to defend Mumia Abu-Jamal, the criminal who murdered Philadelphia cop Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Thanks to Adegbile and his colleagues, Abu-Jamal ultimately avoided the death penalty. Despite heavy scrutiny, LDF attorneys said it was a great "honor" to represent the convicted cop killer.

Obama Administration’s Plan

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry still believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is the dog who caught the car. During simultaneous press conferences late Tuesday morning, both men sought to undermine the current image of Putin as a devious strategist who has outsmarted world powers to take control of the Crimean peninsula and threaten Ukraine. The Obama administration’s position is instead to treat Putin as a reckless hothead, one unnerved into action by mass democratic protests on his border rather than fired by global ambitions, and who’s impulsively pushed his country into a conflict that will quickly

Captioning what may turn out to be the photo of the year is already underway. It’s from President Obama’s comments regarding Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The White House advance team thought it was a good idea to put the President of the United States on a kindergarten alphabet carpet, for some reason. It turns out that Obama’s comments on the invasion were just a prelude to a couple of political fundraisers. He has one tonight, and another tomorrow. We seem to have a part-time president and a full-time fundraiser. Obama also released his 2015 budget today. First reactions: It’s no

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

Let´s take a look at what Mr. Obama had to say: "I also spoke several days ago with President Putin, and my administration has been in daily contact with Russian officials." OK, but why?
