WH Hints: You Might Be
Losing Your Doctor, Too

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/20/2013 6:39:37 AM

The White House has admitted that it was wrong to promise that people would be able to their health care plans under Obamacare. "With respect to the pledge I made that if you like your plan you can keep it, I think -- you know, and I’ve said in interviews -- that there is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. We put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient," President Obama said

FTA: ´´´If you´re building on the private insurance based system that the president is doing, using the model from the Republican governor in Massachusetts, as he did, this is not a government run insurance program,´ said Carney, clearing his throat after being asked whether Americans would be able to keep their doctors.´´

Sounds a lot like, ´´The Republicans did it too! It´s Romney´s fault!´´

OK, I get it. I lost my health care policy, access to my doctors, and also access to top flight med centers (like Sloan Kettering).

But now I can buy into Medicaid style coverage for $thousands/year, the same junk medical coverage which the welfare class already gets for free.

Dems are the leaders of the scum class.

Everybody except Obama. Once again, he showed his ignorance in his promise about keeping your doctor.

If the truth will set you free, I guess we all know what Obama´s lies will do. Americans are getting very ticked off at being told what to do by this administration. We have had more than enough of government interference in our lives. We are a people whose freedom has been bought by Americans who paid the ultimate price. This is no time to dishonor their sacrifice. it´s time for a real push back on big government.

The damage control works like this: "Uh oh, we´d better get the doctor part out of the way right now because if it comes out later, it will just prolong the scandal. Let´s just get it all over with now so that the people will be mad but they´ll get over it faster if it comes out in one chunk rather than piecemeal."

This isn´t just a scandal. It´s criminal fraud and like other criminal cases should be prosecuted. We can begin with the States suing the fed about O´Care.

Obama will surely give another speech to a group of his cultists in which he attacks "bad apple doctors". Will be an update on his 10/30/13 Boston "Still More Lies" speech when he attacked insurers:

"Remember, before the Affordable Care Act, these bad apple insurers had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy."

We will hear how incompetent, uncaring and maliciously wealthy physicians have been thankfully weeded out by ObamaCare.

I would bet the med schools in India and around the world are being put into overdrive to train our next generation of H1B Visa physicians. The only prerequisite is that they join Obama´s "Doctors for America" front group and go to work in a clinic. Mao´s barefoot doctor program will have nothing on us.

There´s no other way this can work.

I believe its time for the American People to push back Government´s intrusions into our lives.

We need a petition to recall this President for willfully lying to the People of the United States. This man has also directed the IRS and the Census Bureau to falsely attack conservative organizations and deliberately falsify Census data.

Had he allowed the truth to be known prior to the last Presidential Election, he would not be squatting in our White House.

It is time to demand he leave or go to trial for High Crimes and treason.

This potus is not black, white, yellow, or mexican. He is an American, he is the president, and he has lied, subverted laws, and committed murder.

It is now time for him to resign, if the Rats were smart, they would take this action to protect themselves in 2014.

I´m ready for zippy to have his Ceaucescu balcony moment.

For those who don´t remember, it was when the Eastern Bloc communist regimes were toppling like dominoes in 1989. In Romania, Ceaucescu and his wife were on a palace balcony looking out over the crowd when they realized that it was no longer the adoring "rent a crowd" that they were used to. It was tens of thousands of angry people who had had enough of communism and their dictator couple. In the video you can see the light bulbs going off in their heads. Within hours they were on the run for their lives. The rest, as they say, is history.

Look it up on YouTube.

Satisfying core constituencies was the sole interest of the ObamaKKKare designers.

So, who are these people?

Well, there´s AIDS ~ the GBLT crowd wanted that treated.

Then, there´s ABORTION ~ young, single women who work at night wanted that one real bad.

And finally, sex change aficionados ~ which is just totally weird. You wouldn´t imagine there were enough of those guys around to finance a race for an uncontested seat in a state legislature.

The Democrats decided it was advantageous to ADJUST and DESTROY 100% of the medical insurance system just to serve those three special interest groups.

Next on their agenda is undoubtedly FOOD. Their garbage truck driver´s union is a big contributor eh!

It´s all going in the big hopper and crushed first.

Worked in the UK then Canada then crossed the border at Buffalo became a citizen and ever since experienced the best in the world physicians and medical facilities.I cannot tell you how I really disliked their National Health systems.We then get this incompetant loon in the WH telling us what health service we should all have.Aside from his habitual lieing (UK version not to confuse the reader with lying in the grass et al ). What makes Obamacare ludicrous and not valid is that many changes have been made to the original SIGNED version without a house debate or vote on the changes.Constitutional? God help Us, there is never a day that this individual steps into it deeper.Around the world he is laughable, a paper tiger who makes us all appear weak and ripe for take over.It amazes me that the US declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the USA did not include an amendment which penalizes a President for currupting the Pentagon , IRS , Justice Dept etc and above all being a leaderless bystander President.

My doctor my health guide for 23 years
has quit. I cannot fault his choice.
He is past the accepted retirement age. He wears a back brace -- a military service gift.
Obama says he should become a peon worker on a low pay scale never mind the costs of keeping up with the changes in medicine or the cost of operation.
If we hate the tyrant obama law just think of the restraints our doctors face.
Push a little harder to end this madness.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions.

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

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

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

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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.

The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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
