Obamacare’s Useful Idiots
American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 9/16/2013 6:26:50 AM

Remember that March day in 2010 when the President, surrounded by devout supporters, solemnly signed Obamacare into law? It was, as Joe Biden brayed, “a big f-----g deal.” Obama and his army of righteous reformers had finally triumphed over the forces of evil and passed legislation that would drive the moneychangers from the temple of U.S. health care. Many of those beaming down on the President as he wielded his terrible swift pen represented prestigious national organizations and coalitions whose support had made the glorious moment possible. Some of these groups have since seen the error of their ways.

People have an amazing ability to adapt to their environment. For example,people living in rat and roach infested houses or in extreme weather condiitions in either direction.-33 in Alaska or 110 in Arizona.

So people at the bottom of the rung in this country basically accept their horrible conditions as long as it´s free.But people who are used to a better lifestyle don´t accept drastic change that will drag their lifestyles down. For those people,Obamacare is a huge threat and it´s intended to be by the crafters of this bill,who have long since had it in for middle class whites,even white liberals loathe middle class whites based on their politics..

The point is the people at the bottom realize there´s no up elevator for them and they accept it. They would actually get more pleasure in seeing whites dragged down to their level.

Obama has the gall to complain about the wealth gap when him and his ilk made it that way. They´ve surpresed poor people with lousy education and making them content with a new government perk here and there.The wealth gap is a natural development in a communist society where the ruling class steals all the money.

The liberal boilerplate is repuplicans have all the money and the lofos believe it,thus their hatred of Romney.

I don´t believe barack can legally issue a waiver on the Cadillac plans of union members only. The waivers would have to apply to all recipients of Cadillac plans.
And that would subtract a part of the bogus funding for kenyacare.
But barack, and HHS secretary sebelius play fast and loose with the law, so ...

Great article. I could not believe it when the American Medican Association and the Catholic Health association backed Obamacare. What foolishness. The unions were, of course, a gimme. Corrupt, and none too bright, they trusted Democratic disonesty to work in their favor but never thought it would be turned against them.

Yes, the AMA supported Obamacare, which is one of many reasons that a majority of physicians reject the AMA, and left it years ago.

Ditto the AARP, by the way.

Nobody was "suckered" into this. Obamacare is the product of decades of Democrat wet-dreams, and those thousands of pages weren´t writtn overnight. The AFL-CIO and AMA, and the rest, were all facilitators becasue they smelled $$$ headed their way. This is just forced re-distribution, not reform, and they all knew it and supported Obamacare on that basis.

This government has removed incentives for individual success over the years. This brings us to where we are now. One reason for getting a good education was to enable one to get and enjoy the benefit of a solid insurance and retirement plan. Dragging everyone down to the same level is not the America that we need to face the future challenges.

Having just freed my elderly father from a 3-week hospital stay, this topic is near and dear to my heart.

The 3-week stay was the result of a medication error but the hospital and numerous doctors will profit, at least a little, from 3 weeks of wandering through his room and collecting a few dollars for it.

Our "health" "care" system is a dangerous disaster. The ICU care was very good and did what it was supposed to do. Everything after that, especially rehab, was run by morons and death-panel types. I think they were a bit disappointed when we wheeled him out of their clutches upright instead of horizontal covered with a sheet.

One day at home and his improvement is amazing. Of course we took him off all the hospital meds and he´s back on only the few maintenance meds he already took but the hospital had replaced for a reason they would never explain.

It´s not Christian but I hope every useful idiot and greedy fool who supported this national nightmare ends up getting what they wanted, and getting it good and hard.

Most still pretend they did the right thing. It may be an insult to the intellectually impaired to elevate such people to the level of “idiot.”

They´re not "intellectually" impaired so much as morally impaired. They knew damn well it was wrong yet they still cling to their faulty choice.

One of my LoFo relatives loves Obamacare. Why? She believes that it provides high quality health care for all and will cost nothing.

When you attempt to inform her that this isn´t exactly the case, she simply smiles politely and says, "You´ve been watching Fox News, haven´t you?"

There are millions like her.

Not to worry. Obama still has time. He didn´t study law to practice it. He studied law to learn how to game it. This should be an axiom.

The ACA is a case example of statutory ambiguity. This was on purpose. It is ripe for Obama or his leftist lawyers to interpret. This has been his M.O. on all matters from day one. He believes he has legal authority to do just about anything. He can alter or postpone whatever. There has been a coup and people haven´t a clue. The unions will be taken care of before they are needed in 2014.

All these organizations deserve exactly what they are getting -- especially their members, who have drifted happily through the decades, blithely ceding control of their groups to the usual cadres of reforming radicals.

Sorry to be so unsympathetic, but this is what they, and 53% of our fellow citizens, wanted. Let them enjoy eating their free lunch -- and crow is on the menu.

The Useful Idiots deserve every bit of misery coming their way for helping to force the ACA act down our throats. But, I do not take any pleasure in seeing their misery because all of us will suffer.

However, I am especially outraged that some of these Idiots who foisted this misery on others now want exemptions from it for themselves. (E.g., Congress, AFL-CIO)

Time to think outside of the box on Obamacare, people.

Ask your doctor how much it would cost to pay your favorite doctor a monthly retainer. To cover your basic health care needs. It might be less than your friendly Obamacare plan.

Obamacare and the election of Obama to the office of POTUS may prove to be the last acts by Democrats, either intentionally or unintentionally, that finish off America. If this has been their goal it now is appearing to have been successful. Let´s pray that the 2014 midterms can turn this around.

A poster suggested that none of us sign up for anything and let them chase the 50 million of us who did not pay. The only thing that worries me is that the IRS can empty your bank accounts if they sock you with a penalty. I still find it difficult to believe this thing is being foisted on some of us in the name of healthcare, which I and prolly most of you have had all your working life.

Watched a few minutes of Geraldo On Fox on Sat Night. [Had to put the cat out in the middle of the night!]
He had a guest interview who was making the point that it was the CIA that did in JFK in Dallas. JFK was no longer an asset to the Democrat Party(?)or the Washington Govt. So the CIA was to do away with him.
Zippy has soaked the Unions and their membership for somewhere between 50 and 100 Million Bucks. To pay for his election. I have no idea of what he promised them, but they currently seem to be complaining that they have gotten NOTHING for their investment. Zippy is on his way to craping out the whole country and the CXlass of Voters most effected are the Lo-Info´s who have taken the slide into dependency and no jobs. Zippy has his "Stash" and is apparently planning to escape to Hawaii WHEN HE IS DONE IN 2016;TO LIVE THE REST OF HIS LIFE SUCKLED BY THE PUBLIC TEAT.
Makes you wonder if when he has outlived his usefulness to the ´RAT PARTY will he get his Limo ride through Dallas,too?

Any notion that the Obama administration might be taking its deliberations over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline seriously went up in smoke late Friday, when the State Department announced a delay that will push a final decision past the November midterm elections. It was a weekend news dump on steroids — on Good Friday, buried under the weight of so many chocolate Easter bunnies. But the White House cannot avoid scrutiny of such a nakedly political decision — not given the stakes. The delay will please the liberal activists and wealthy green elites who propel Democratic campaigns. But it will do so at

Why Democrats Are the

The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article

So now we know why the Democrats are adopting economic inequality as their central issue: because their constituents, the people who live under policies crafted by the left, are the ones who experience the highest degree of income inequality in their own lives. That’s the upshot of a recent study of income inequality organized by congressional district: “Across the country, inequality is lower in Republican districts than in Democratic ones” and is “highest in the New York City district of Representative Jerry Nadler, a liberal Democrat.” Who has the congressional district with the least income inequality? That would be Tea Party

Mrs. Clinton’s New Memoir

Yesterday on a panel on “Face the Nation,” we briefly discussed Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming memoir of her four years as secretary of state. It is called “Hard Choices”—they appear to be running low at the book-title store—and will be published June 10. The announcement of the title alone made news, which is a measure of how much interest the book, good or bad, will engender. Books are good and it’s good to write them; the always more or less beleaguered publishing industry needs bestsellers, and Mrs. Clinton has provided them, most spectacularly with her previous memoir, “Living History,” in 2003.

Here´s a bit of good news for nervous Democrats: President Barack Obama´s health-care law isn´t going to be the albatross many feared it would be in this year´s congressional elections. Enrollment has soared, and the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the program will cost less than initially projected and that premiums will rise only slightly this year. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid aren´t popping the Champagne, however. The economy could clobber Democrats in November. And the president continues to alternate between telling Americans how much better things are and deploring how many are being left

President Barack Obama announced triumphantly that 8 million people selected a private insurance plan through the health care exchanges created by legislation known as Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. He added his own interpretation of the numbers: "This thing is working." At the same time, however, Democratic candidates across the country still see the health care law as a drag on their campaigns in the midterm elections. After four years of trying, there is still no evidence that the president´s signature piece of legislation has become popular. If the law was really working, and voters were excited about it, Democratic

‘Obamacare is Working!’

Last Thursday, the president announced the Obamacare debate over for the second time this month. The pretext for his repetition of this talking point was yet another implausible claim concerning the number of people his health care law has helped gain coverage. (snip) If you feel that President Obama is protesting a bit too much, you are not alone. Public opinion surveys consistently show that most Americans still oppose Obamacare. Moreover, a growing number of Americans believe the president to be a habitual liar. According to a new Fox News poll, “Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies ‘most of the time.’

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying

If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

No need for a rush

Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article

The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
