Obama under attack as Americans
lose prior health plans

Reuters, by Roberta Rampton*

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/29/2013 6:02:05 PM

President Barack Obama is facing fresh attacks for his pledge that Americans who like their current healthcare plans can keep them under Obamacare, as reports pile up of thousands of Americans facing cancellation notices. Accusations that the pledge was misleading are potentially a deeper threat to Obama than the website glitches that have plagued Healthcare.gov since its October 1 launch and allowed only a trickle of people to sign up on new federal insurance exchanges. Obama has downplayed the problems with the website, saying it´s like a cash register not working, and has stressed that the underlying product of the

To Reuters and other assorted members of the Obamedia:

It´s called a ´counterattack´.
Obama and the DemoLeftists fired the first shot.

Sincerely,

"Fresh attack" for lying through his teeth.

(For the life of me I don´t understand how anyone could have not known it was a lie the moment they heard it, yet such people do exist.)

They also want reams of personal, private information, beyond health related conditions.

Do generally pro-government people really accept this loss of privacy, these people who scream Murther! Murther! if anyone mentions restrictions on abortion??

The government-doctors will be looking up your you-know-what, and you will have no say in it. Tell your Liberal-Leftwing-Democrat friends they´d better think, better start thinking. Think.

Do they really trust the government, this regime, which is so blatantly lying and deceiving?

Are even Dems, including the Lefties among them, getting that sinking feeling that they are being MADE SUBSERVIENT to the government Leviathan?

It will consume everyone, sooner or later. It always does.

Please, please, please DON´T delay Obamacare. This rolling disaster is finally the silver bullet we´ve been hoping for to kill off these blood-sucking communists. The more people find out how bad their own costs are going to be, the greater the drubbing of the Democrats in 2014. Leave it alone. Let them find out how horrible a trap they´ve been put into by the Democrats.

Boggles the mind that the media still tries to white wash this disaster. Just for a moment imagine that this was a Republican plan...let that sink in and then imagine the media´s response. Think they would be parsing words? Heck no! The only thing good about this rollout is that people are waking up to the truth that Obama LIES and there is pain that comes from believing him. Sometimes we must learn the hard way. Pray that enough people see Obama and the democrat party for what they are, liars who can´t be trusted.

Nice try Reuters! I noticed yesterday that EVERYONE is shouting that OBAMA is to blame for this mess. Obama lied. Well...what about the DEMOCRAT CONGRESS who passed OBAMACARE? There is where the blame should rest. But, now that there is an election looming, the MEDIA is suddenly trying to take away blame from the DEMOCRATS who passed this Bill in the dead of night, and give it to Obama who doesn´t face another election. DO NOT let them get away with this! Place that blame on every single Democrat who voted for this Bill and USE that blame when they come up for re-election in 2014!

The silver lining in this is that the people complaining and losing their insurance or experiencing rate hikes with higher deductibles voted for Obama not once but twice.
The Obama voting idiots had to get hit in their wallets for their eyes to open up when they all voted for the Obama scheme. Wait until the IRS steals their refunds after they file their taxes.
Some people have to learn the hard way and I could have told them all that Obama was a communist fraud in 2007!

It´s till a Reuters article--note how it implies that the only people getting their policies cancelled are those who bought it on the individual market--even tho employers across the country are having to dump their employees´ coverage because the insurance doesn´t comply with Obamacare. Note also how it only refers to "mental health care" and "preventative care" when it addresses the new stuff all policies have to cover--again, no word about such garbage as requiring everyone, male, female, 80-years or 3 years old, to have maternity coverage, contraceptive coverage, sex-change operation coverage, etc, etc. They just can´t help it, they are hopeless shills for the dems.

#11 beat me to it.

#15, I truly want to keep Obama breathing so that ultimately he knows that he and his Saul Alinsky ideas have been rejected by Americans.

When Obama is rejected, I want the world to see that America is still a "shining city on a hill" and that we, as a nation, reject anything that extinguishes that light. The longer Obama is in office, more voters are beginning to "see the light" and to contrast our current despair to the past when we weren´t shackled by our government.

We fought a war in 1776 against an oppressive government on foreign shores. I pray every day for a George Washington to emerge and to lead us in battle (real or figuratively) against a regime much, much worse than King George III of England.

Obamacare completely undermines the HIPPA regulations. That point never seems to be discussed.Contrary to the HIPPA regs for providers to give out health care information
other than to the Insurance Carrier that will be reimbursing the treatment/condition. Patient must sign off for provider to even discuss with immediate family. I darn well know first hand because my wife is on MY plan and they will not allow me to access her account ( not that I have need to ).Now, if I told them I was from the Government, the IRS, the HHS, the FBI, or any other agency, they would have carte blanche into her
private matters.

My brother still blames the tea party for everything, says if he loses his pension that it is their fault. Here is my reply to him... You don’t get it. Obama is stealing all our money. He is stealing our pensions to fund this Barrack boondoggle. He is the one hanging us out to dry. Most of the people that are with the tea party are on social security. Look at the pictures. The majority of them are old. Do you have a clue about how he is treating our military and our elderly? My heart breaks that you won’t listen to my warning. I won’t bother trying to warn you anymore. In a very short time it will become so obvious that no matter what the spin and lies are even people like yourself will come to the realization that there is now some very bad people lead by the president in charge of things. I love you. I hope each of us in the way best for us find a happy life.

The fact that Obama lies is not actually news. Did the media report that today is Wednesday? Issue a bulletin when something he says is verifiable. That would be news to me.
But in their defense they just want to make sure we all have enough health insurance. I guess there must be thousands of 40-50 year old men who require maternity care \s.

I am beginning to think that Rush is really an Establishment guy. He was saying that Karl Rove was saying something to the effect that Sebelius´ testimony would go nowhere -just a dog and pony show, etc. (I pretty much don´t listen to Rush v much anymore because I already know what he´s telling me from Lucianne.)

Of course, it will go nowhere if the information does not move out of the hearing room!!!!! Ignorance is still not bliss even when about this horrible Obamacare.

I thought her testimony was very, very enlightening. Great questions from our Republicans - even when their time was cut to two minutes. Started watching about ten thirty or so, and don´t remember all, but it is so important for everyone who got a notice that their healthcare plans "fail to include essential benefits required by law" could have lost their healthcare plan for a very simple reason, as we heard today, that a 31 year old, healthy, single male did not have a healthcare plan that includes maternity benfits - one size fits all. Guess a 65 years old woman loses her plan, similarly, because her plan did not include coverage for birth control pills. And in order for the 31 year old and 65 year old to retain their plans their cost has to be increased to cover those who need maternity care and birth control pills. Obamacare is such a bloody sham, and everyone who watched Sebelius´ testimony today should be letting everyone know about her uninformed or dishonest answers to questions.

Folks, this isn´t going to hurt them. They do NOT care that this has been a debacle. So why do we keep acting as if they would care?

The "failure" of the 0bamacare launch is actually their success. It was designed to fail. They want single payer. That is their goal. And this is how they expect to achieve it. When are we going to comprehend this?

Indeed, #3. But, when looking at the bigger picture, the attacks are not being aimed at just at Obie. We have to remember that Obie is the current symbol of modern-day progressivism. By extension ObieCare is a symbol of progressivism and has been a work in progress for almost a century. If the citizenry rises up big time and ObieCare (progressive style) is soon wiped out, so is modern-day progressivism for a good long while.

I hope there is a way and I hope someone has the guts to find that way to cancel out very thing about this Obamacare and go back to what we had before all this started. Then, maybe someone with some knowledge of what they are doing, can fix this. I realize that the people who can´t afford health care are going to the emergeny room with a ingrown toenail or a flu bug and it is costing the hospitals big time, so there has to be a way to fix that.....but don´t ruin the whole country to make that happen.

Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

"Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. 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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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.

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
