Sebelius on the Run
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/18/2013 10:54:31 PM

The Affordable Care Act´s botched rollout has stunned its media cheering section, and it even seems to have surprised the law´s architects. The problems run much deeper than even critics expected, and whatever federal officials, White House aides and outside contractors are doing to fix them isn´t working. But who knows? Omerta is the word of the day as the Obama Administration withholds information from the public. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is even refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing this coming Thursday. HHS claims she has scheduling conflicts, but we hope

For Democrats, incompetence is always a badge of honor. The only thing they demand excellence at is demonizing anyone who would oppose them. Sebelius will be rewarded for this, not punished.

Sebelius is nothing but a stooge front person for this debacle.The real problem are warmed over 1970´s social engineers trying to fit a round ball into a square hole.They used reconciliation to pass Obamacare which by law should have a sunset provision like the Bush tax cuts whichwere passed the same way.Pro-life dems in the House caved in for a phony anti abortion provision that was signed in secret. Most ofthe are probaly ou of office now.

A politician´s abortion stance,defines them overall.That´s really all you need to know about a candidate to see if they´re worth their salt.Sebelius is very pro abortion which builds her a lot of creds in the party.Obama doesn´t want to throw that under the bus.

Anybody "stunned" by the complete failure of the piece of garbage called Obamacare is either asleep or delusional. The system was pronounced unworkable when the first 10,000 page document saw the light of day. It was immediately recognized as the redistribution of wealth to the parasite class and a form of slavery for the average working person. Millions more dollars will be thrown its way but it´s already dead.

Breitbart says all the attention on the glitches is a trap. "The coverage of the glitches is an attempt to create a faux objectivity by focusing on non-core aspects of the single most damaging piece of federal law in generations – all while upholding the central premise, which is that all that stands between Americans and affordable health care is proper implementation of Obamacare."

No surprise here. Sebelius is just another dumb incompetent Democrat. Unfotunately for her she got a unworkable piece of Democrat legislation handed her. As the people realize what a piece of crap Obamacare is, their rage will hit Democrat candidates like a tidal wave in the 2014 midterms.

I have serious doubt that the democrats will be blamed for anything. They never are so what is going to change this time around? They will tell angry Americans that it is fault of Republicans who would not allow them to consider single payer which would cure all the ills of Obamacare. I know this does not make sense, but since when has the democrat party been held accountable for any of its boondoggle ideas? Their followers don´t want solutions, they would rather have the Republicans as a punching bag. Crying and whining is much easier than actually thinking and questioning reality. Obama has trained them well.

A commenter somewhere said something that really made me gasp: The insurance industry has spent the last three years altering their structure in preparation for implementing ObamaCare; it´s virtually impossible for them to go back to what they were if ObamaCare collapses or is delayed in the the next six months, given that they´re different entities having partnered with HHS since the law was passed.

Normally, this person says, the free market works its magic and things turn around. But in this instance, that is unlikely because whatever happens, the law and all its rules and regs will remain in effect, paralyzing insurance companies and ultimately causing their collapse. He seems to think this nightmare is now unavoidable.

Sure would like to hear other opinions on this matter, especially from Ldotters who can speak more authoritatively on the likelihood of the scenario laid out above.

Reminds me of a rehab house we did about fifteen years ago. Gorgeous house around a golf club subdivision, around 3000 sq ft.

Woman who owned it was a hoarder, first time I´d ever heard of one. House was filled with garbage, etc. on top of lovely furniture, now ruined. The stories were multiple, horrific sometimes, and nearly unbelievable. Sometimes you just had to laugh to keep from crying.

However, one thing we found were dozens of books on ´getting organized.´ Two college kids who worked for us piled them all up and then, very seriously asked me what that ´meant´.

That´s who these people are, too. They believe that if they can just write it down, dream it up, believe in it, it will happen. Magical thinking.

They have no concept of the skills or knowledge required to actually get something done. They never have.

So now we have this monstrosity foisted on everyone because a pack of idiot liberals/progressives had "an idea!".

So, you Obamabots, get it now?

In an unwitting moment of candor the Illegal Kenyan admitted to (then Congressman) Kucinich, who felt 0bamacare did not go far enough, that the ACA was simply a stepping stone to single payer. The Conservatives are right. No postponement, no delay, no ´fixes´. Repeal - lock stock and barrel.

#14: The sole intent and purpose of this debacle is to break the insurance companies and force single payer (socialized medicine) on us. One of the first directives will be all doctors to be put on a salary determined by the elite/IRS. In Communist Russia, the doctors were paid at the same or lower rates than the general population.

About a year ago Obama said something like this; We need to fix capitalism and the free market because they don´t work.

Explanation: Communism. This is far beyond Socialism, which redirects wealth as in control of excess profits. It´s out and out Communism, a CLASSLESS society in which all means of production are owned by the collective of citizens or community.

Seventh Plank of the Communist Manifesto: Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State.

This is exactly where these traitors want to take US. It´s far more than just the re-distribution of wealth though that´s at the very core. It´s the control by the few,the Proletariat, that will control all political, social and economical order at their whim.

In short! It´s treason.

Question never answered: Who had what on Chief Justice Roberts? Where is Roberts in all this now?

#17 says in response to my initial post:

´´#14: The sole intent and purpose of this debacle is to break the insurance companies and force single payer (socialized medicine) on us.´´

I´ve thought for some time the collapse of the insurance industry was Obama´s goal. But I assumed it would happen some time down the road, that insurance companies would wither on the vine after ObamaCare transformed health care in this country.

I don´t think Obama or Sebelius realized until fairly recently that this whole thing could implode so soon. I suggest the implementation of single payer now or in the near future would be an impossibility given the public´s rage at what´s happened to their healthcare.

The administration, therefore, may not have the luxury of waiting a couple of years so that we all get used to the new healthcare regime and there is no going back because private insurers are no more.

If ObamaCare collapses in a shorter timeframe, the whole system will be a mess, but private insurers will still exist. So then the question is, will Obama and Dems push for single payer much earlier than they wanted to and incur the wrath of three quarters of the people, or will they back off, realizing that election disasters are likely in 2014, 2016 if they follow this course.

From Mike Lee and Ted Cruz: "We told you so."

All they were asking for was to delay Obamacare for one year. In hindsight, they may have demonstrated one of the best GOP strategies in many years.

As a Republican, when you want to get your message out, you circumvent the media and go directly to the American people. Lee and Cruz understands this and it´s what President Reagan did very effectively.

Thanks for saying it so well, #18.

The water is starting to boil too fast, and the Democrats know that even the lo-fo frogs will start to hop out of their carefully laid heathcare scheme. Single payer may be their goal, but what they may actually accomplish is reinstituting fee for service medicine.

Katty Sebelius, a rabid pro-abortionist, and failed former gov. of Kansas (who quit in the middle of her term), has time to appear on TV with comic Jon Stewart, but conveniently cannot make time to appear before Congress to explain the train wreck of obamacare.

In response to #14, some of you may recall this past summer, early August I think, Rush had a guest on that was an insurance industry employee with the accounting section of one of the big companies. She tried to explain what it was they were going through to meet some of the little known demands of the law, and how it would fundamentally change the way that they operate. It was too technical to really understand, Rush even found it pretty much incomprehensible, but it does illustrate what is happening/going to happen to the insurance companies under barrycare. They are going to have to make so many internal changes in the way they do business that it will be next to impossible to go back to the pre-change, pre-barrycare way of doing business. Yes, we are doomed to single payer if this plays out the way that woman portrayed what is going on internally in the insurance companies.

Last word from me on the subject.

In response to my last post (#18), #20 says, ´´Of course he´ll push for single payer.´´

But, you see, I don´t think Obama and Sebelius thought they´d have to ´´push´´ for single payer. I believe they expected things would gradually go bad, dissatisfaction would grow, the insurance companies would be gone, and people would forget who started us down this road and turn to the government for a solution, any solution.

But if things go bad very quickly, as appears to be happening, people are not likely to turn to the architects of the fiasco and say, okay, you blew it with Obamacare but we´re good with you trying to set up a vastly more complicated and intrusive system.

#17 ~ terminology check ~ the proletariat consists of the BROAD MASSES ~ but it´s the VAN GUARD OF THE PROLETARIAT, that is, the leidership elite, you should fear.

There´s also the BOURGEOISE ~ ownership and management class folks ~ including rich peasants.

Marxism has a rather uninteresting view of social makeup. They imagine something on the order of cops and robbers. Everybody else is expected to stand around, sitting first on their thumbs, then sucking them, watching and waiting ~ to be told what to do.

The only thing they ever got right was that prostitution is not a victimless crime.

Don´t fixate on the glitches. The greater issue is the death spiral and we already have 3 years of data on that by way of the PCIP (preexisting conditions insurance pool). This program´s expectation was to sign up 625,000 uninsured to cover the transition to Obamacare. By the beginning of 2013, they had finally driven the enrollment up to 100,000 by taking over some of States high risk pools. Even with this much lower number of ensured, they consumed the entire $5 billion. This was the group of citizens that Obamacare was designed to serve. Have they all registered yet? Has any healthy person that will pay a premium signed up? The stories suggest that the sick, those on Medicaid who are hoping for a tax credit as well. and those with a high risk of AIDS, are the only ones signing up.

The Obama crew spend over 650 million in taxpayer´s money to design and install the Obama Care web site that does not work. Did they demand any sort of warranty, or was that expenditure just another redistribution of taxpayer´s money to the "community"?

Will they now start spending double the 650 million in an attempt to fix that monstrosity with no guarantees that it will work in the end?

Because of being the author of this fiasco, and if the health insurance industry collapses because of Obama´s doings, Obama will never be able to get a single payer government run health insurance program through the Congress in the next three years. In the minds of liberals and progressives that will probably be Hillary´s job after that.

I can´t help but think this "incompetent screw up" is anything but a cunningly planned, well-orchestrated license to steal. Consider the alleged millions/billions already spent on OCare "architecture" and the alleged millions/billions being spent to "fix it." Where´s the money going, exactly? There´s no detailed accounting, so we can´t ask that all-important question: Who profits? (Aside from the "government IT professional" who purchased ten-tear-old software.) Wonder how long it will be before the lucky folks who successfully managed to sign up for OCare awaken to the grim realization that their identity and bank account both belong to a Nigerian goatherd.

Assuming his throne, King Notme knew hardly anyone, except those he dragged in from Chicago. His first appointees were two ex-female governor lawyers. Neither had a speck of qualifying experience for their positions. No matter, they had their kneepads and signed in blood their undying devotion to the King. One has finally moved on before her ineptness and crony adoration following orders was discovered to be yet another scandal for her boss. The other, well, she´ll follow suit shortly.,

Sometimes I think we give Obama way too much credit for being anything more than a ruthless political hack and that applies to many in his administration...Sebelius incl.
Like her boss, what experience did she have for this undertaking? It´s amazing the incompetence. I hope books are currently being written about this debacle.
Let´s face it, they´re in way over their heads, but more importantly, they didn´t do their due diligence or market research to determine the feasibility of this monstrosity that they´ve foisted upon the American people.

The Right has a great opportunity capture the hearts and minds on the electorate if we play our cards carefully (no screws up) and treat the American people with respect.

For her extreme arrogance and incompetence, Sebelius deserves the worst punishments. I´m under no illusion that she and other humorless ideologues in the O regime-- Mizzuz Cliton, Miss Incompetentano, "My People" Holder, "I Take the Fifth" Lerner and countless goobermint parasites-- will ever be held accountable. All I have left is ill will and ridicule, as even the ballot box seems not to work anymore.

The problem that the Administration is having with Obamacare is that no matter how much they lie about it, even many Democrats KNOW they are being lied to, because they are being personally affected detrimentally by the program. Looks like the chickens are finally coming home to roost. When even your base knows you are lying, you have a major problem
with these voters.

Barry obviously has a whole stable full of flunkies to take the heat for his crimes, F&F, IRS, Benghazi, GM, Solyndra, ObamaNoCare. He has robbed the treasury of hundreds of billions and has bought or stolen votes in every election. Don´t wake me until somebody sticks the egg on his face and nails him to the wall.

Thanks for the correction, #34. You´re absolutely correct. It´s the Bourgeosie who will rule.

#38: I keep hearing more and more references to the pressure put on Roberts. When you think of the influence of Hillary´s FBI files, it would be easy to dig something up or just make a reference or two about where your kids go to school, etc.

The very least Roberts could have done if he believed this was a tax is to send it back to the Senate as not passing muster. A tax has to be raised from the proper source, the House, not the WH or the Senate. But he cratered on every front.

Alito says he worked for three weeks to change Roberts mind. Something terrible was amiss with this one!

If healthcare was the goal, everyone in the country could have been given 2 million cash to spend on their own healthcare for the 660 million spent on the website!
Obamas communist takeover and the destruction of the middle class and producers to ensure their CONTROL was the goal and they are achieving it.
Death panels will take care of white seniors - 80 % of whom get Medicare- Obama ripped it off of 700 million.
None of this debacle is unintentional.
Obamacare was written by Soros´s Centre for American Progress and convicted felon Robert Creamer, communist rep Schakowskys husband.

I agree with #33.

On a slightly different subject, software development is not so difficult if the customer can provide good requirements/specifications.

If you hire a developer and think he is going to design your software you are dumb.

This was the blind leading the blnd who thought the other guy was leading.

And the very sorry part about it is that it should be accessible in a hurry, not cut and paste. Sorry, but I´m not messing with it anymore. Breaks my heart, but life´s too short.

The solution to our healthcare and insurance problems is to switch to catastrophic insurance were you have to pay the first $10k of your med expenses and insurance covers the rest. It would make insurance much cheaper and you more careful about med expenses as you would be paying.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and
causing them to lose their survival instinct,
researchers warn
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Mark Prigg    Original Article

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

Americans increasingly prefer
Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
