The Hidden Heartlessness
of the Obamacare Rollout

National Review Online, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/15/2013 5:56:17 PM

The Left loves to think of itself as compassionate, and — indeed — many of my more liberal friends are among the most caring people that I know. So why does the Left cling so tightly to timetables and systems that not only risk rendering legal compliance with Obamacare mandates impossible but also place many families at real risk? Today, during our daily ACLJ radio show, Jay Sekulow Live, we asked listeners to call and tell us about their experiences with the exchanges. Of course we heard stories of repeated failures and frustrations, but also truly distressing stories of families dropped

The costs and deductibles for Obamacare are so astronomical; it shows just how out of touch this administration is with the working class and how little this administration cares for us.
Top that off with the fact that our representatives, businesses and now unions are exempt, shows the disdain Obama has for the people who will foot the bill and how he has "paid off" those who support Democrats and pass legislation.

Recommend for must read. Someone who was used to a preventative/catastrophic plan who was shunted to Obamacare is going to go in for an annual check-up and get hit with a big bill. Then they will realize that they have to cover their deductible of 4,000 before their coverage begins. Then in 2015 they´ll learn their subsidy in 2014 will be taxable income in 2015.

And without major changes Obamacare will only get more oppressive. The ´´fee´´ for non-compliance jumps to 2.5% of your income in a couple years. So someone making $50,000/year will get hit with a $1,250 tax penalty, on top of all other taxes.

This man is such a sociopath. He wants this so badly because it causes others causes pain. It is so obvious, but in a nation where we have a popular TV show about a serial killer (never seen it, and for that reason) people who are abnormal are not seen as worrisome anymore. That´s why we have things like Aurora happen. It´s societal suicide.

People have lost their view of appropriate behavior which opens the door for men like Obama. I am so horrified by what liberals write and post. Just today, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee should drown? This from some big shot so-called "journalist" (give me a break!) and he still has his job because everyone above him is as despicable a creep as he is. That´s who and what they are.

Obama is a sociopath but I´m not sure some in the press aren´t as well. Look at the disgusting Sally Quinn, a step away from a cheesy, sleazy old prostitute, who is considered the epitome of society in Washington? Gag. No joke. She´s probably a sociopath too.

Sociopaths enjoy hurting people. Actually derive pleasure from other people´s pain. Obama made the statement during the shutdown that is what he wants. How stupid are the press to not get that? He clearly hopes this hurts other people. That obviously makes him happy.

Sick people, really, truly and deeply sick.

´´Do not be afraid to see what you see.´´ Pres. Reagan

The conservatives in Congress have read the bill and they do see the devastating results ahead in the train wreck socialist policy called 0bamacare! They are sounding the alarm, -the warning, and trying to prevent the American people´s suffering BEFORE the train goes completely off its Constitutional track.

The Congressional dem pols & RINOS can also see the damage 0bamacare is already causing throughout the fabric of America, with more to come ahead, but they obviously don´t care. They are now even ignoring their responsibilities as designated in the U.S. Constitution. Like the Oz tin man, dem pols seem to have no heart.

Ergo, which of these two polar opposite examples of current, ´public servants,´ is authentically fulfilling each one´s oath of office to America and to the American citizens? Who cares about the chaos 0bamacare is causing this country & who doesn´t? mm mmm mmm

You´d think Obama and the democrats would be very concerned that the Obamacare rollout is a disaster. Under the guise of being the "caring" party, you´d think they would want to right the wrongs. After all, they are all for the little guy. It is now obvious that the little guy is going to be hurt badly by this law. Example after example surface everyday. Now why wouldn´t they want to fix this? It is very simple. They want the pain. They need the pain. When people can´t take it anymore, they will come riding to the rescue with their ultimate goal, single payer. Total government control of health care is their goal. Obamacare is a means to an end.

For those of you who are Christians, consider this. Satan can only possess one person at a time and only then if that person is lost. While he can afflict anyone, he cannot control them if they are a Christian. If most of our recent Presidents were Christians, this could explain everything that we are seeing.

Most liberals I know love mankind in the abstract, but don´t really care much about the individual. They love that the People will get access to health coverage, but let the People complain about not being able to log on or how the cost is impossible to meet and they turn their backs.

Seriously, are conservatives so masochistic or inconsiderate of their gastrointestinal systems that they actually can eat a meal with these people? Who wants to have their nerves shredded by a bunch of yuppified overaged Kampus Kommies? I haven´t bothered to make friends with liberals since the 1970´s.

The most heartless thing about it is the IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board), the Death Panel. I´m sure that when they consider pulling the plug on a sick person, the first criteria they will look at is whether he is a Republican. Just like the IRS does.

David isn´t very smart. His having liberal friends who are so caring isn’t the whole story. HOW are they caring? Is their care voluntary, or is there care mandatory? Creating laws to be caring? Caring liberals is too often the front for demanding liberals, who are actually socialist communists, ruling by force, like all democrat communists and too many RINO republicans who are also communists in truth
Communism equals "heartlessness", dummie.

obamacare is nothing more than a death warrant on freedom in America. Sadly Americans will be forced to pay to die with this thing. And I am more disgusted every day watching the democrats speak about how they are saving people and how people like Catholic chaplains have no usefulness. I am so disgusted with the rinos and their fears and hatred of the Constitutionalists in the party because they are actually fighting for us. They have outlived their usefulness for sure. We need an army of real patriots in Congress not Casper Milquetoasts.

Obamacare offers real garbage insurance.

It´s not uncommon to have a $10,000 deductible and then get only 40% coverage. The policies are so bad that you´re almost better going without.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment.

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
