Please, Mr. President, for the good of
the country, let´s delay ObamaCare

Fox News, by Douglas E. Schoen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/22/2013 4:45:46 AM

Today, President Obama and the Democrats are faced with the opportunity to take a timeout – a timeout from ObamaCare. I believe that they should delay ObamaCare for six months to a year. America’s health care system isn’t something that can be pieced together on an ad-hoc basis amidst failing websites, party infighting, bickering insurers and a confused American public. Since the website launched last month, it has become increasingly clear that the policy – and indeed the mechanics – weren’t ready yet. And while I, along with the rest of the American people, would’ve preferred that it had worked

Doug Schoen is a solid, partisan Democrat, so he really means "for the good of the" Democrat Party.

Please, Mr President, resign for the good of our Nation. Please, Harry Reid, resign for the good of our Nation. Please Nancy Pelosi, resign for the good of our Nation.

I´m betting huge amounts of money none of those three ever think about the good of our Nation.

Delay it until it´s fixed and all the bugs are out and it´s up and running smoothly? Yea, clever idea. I wonder which party and which Dear Leader that will benefit the most?

The President cannot "delay" laws. Congress can repeal or amend the law. The President must enforce the laws or be impeached.

Problems with obamaCare is that it is based on the Lib template used for getting home ownership for low incomes (LoFo´s), that is wreck the entire industry. Now, nobody qualifies for a mortgage.

Any sane, honest person would have said, "OK, 40 million un-insured persons. How much money to fix that? Here´s Medicaid version 2.0 . Here´s the price tag". But no, moronic DEMS have to say this costs nothing, then proceed to take away EVERYBODY´S health care, wreck the entire industry.

Only fix is to repeal it. Can´t tinker-fix a train wreck.

What a horrible idea.

IF and that is a huge IF, Obamacare would have actually LOWERED premiums and everyone WOULD have benefitted, we WOULD have seen Bi-partisan support and the law would have passed easily and WOULD have been popular from day one.

Instead, it was and has always been a pipe dream that had dangerous consequences for the entire country and its economy.

Maybe it should be called a "pipe-nightmare".

Why delay the inevitable? Delaying one, two, three, or even ten years will not make this abomination palatable. It is not the law, it is the philosophy behind the law. We are not serfs to be ruled by a bunch of democrat overlords! Get your stinking fingers out of my life and quit telling me how to live.

The ONLY reason democrats are calling for delay is that they fear the democrat party is in for a shellacking come 2014. What they don´t know is that Obama is on a mission and NOTHING is going to stop him. He will not delay it. He´s going all in.

DEAR MR> SCHOEN: America doesn´t want this law. Americans are sick of your president. Americans are losing their health care, their money and their lives because of this law. Why in God´s name would we want to delay it. We want it gone, Mr. Schoen.

Don´t delay obamacare. Let´s get the rioting and the hangings over with so we can start to rebuild this country. No sense dragging this dead horse further down the road.

Then we can rebuild the capitol someplace else, like Nebraska, where the water isn´t poisoned with liberalism.

Now that even the Dems are awakening to reality, there are two words which are coming into focus - "Repeal" and "Impeach". They aren´t used together nor are they synonymous, but they both convey the anger that is approaching the boiling point. The poll numbers indicate the temperature. In this case, though, the lower Obama´s numbers go, the nearer we are to the boiling point.

The only way the Dems can regain their credibility is through Repeal of Obamacare. It is doubtful that will happen regardless of how desperately or how many Dems would choose to do so.

We all know that an Obama Impeachment won´t fly no matter if Congress became 535 Republicans strong. Of course if that were the happy outcome of the 2014 election, Obama would have his hands tied and couldn´t do too much more to destroy our once-great nation.

Never-the-less, the obvious need to use one of these actions, has the Dems re-thinking whether or not it is in their best interest to support their man sitting in the WH.

The problem with Obamacare doesn´t go away by spending more time figuring out how to do a bad thing.

Take a ride with Mr. Peabody and Sherman in the wayback machine and watch the proportional increase in the cost of medical care relative to everything else and look for the changes that correlated with that and use common sense to discern which may have been the cause or causes.

You will find market inefficiencies directly related to government intrusion in the market which has been leveraged as a reason for more government. You will also find our increasingly litigious behavior to be a major factor. You will also find that as people became distanced from the value proposition through insurance and the illusion that their employer was paying for it we became vulnerable.

How about for the good of the WORLD, repeal ObamaCare?

I read yesterday that there were only about 6+ BILLION people in the world in 2009; so I am guessing that maybe there are 8 BILLION people in the world now.

Our country´s debt is 17 TRILLION and counting. Just our country´s debt, alone, is twice the number of people in the WHOLE WORLD.

ObamaCare is already doing terrible things to our economy and the creators of the web-site still haven´t completed the pay system for healthcare.

Everyone says the motivation behind ObamaCare is to gain power, but what are the movers-and-shakers going to do with people who have forgotten how to even tie their own shoes, if they still own shoes (I know The State will provide).

Just stalling until after next years elections. I fully expect the GOP to completely fall for another obvious deviation from sanity. Kill the bill, or let them live with the resulting chaos.

Something else, the House should not agree to any bill passed by the Senate unless they reinstate their rules on filibusters. Come to think of it, isn´t that the same thing that Boehner and the GOP Old Guard are trying to do against Tea Party House members.

This country is so screwed.

What he really meant to say was "postpone the entire thing until after the mid-term elections." If the Republicans don´t move to defund any of this it will continue to get worse and worse. No one has mentioned the 25,000 pages of regulations that God only knows what´s in them. You know how odious and horrific 0bamacare is, what is contained in those regulations is most likely even worse and beyond imagination. Those regulations will become entrenched and will never be undone. No wonder 0bama and his devious criminal Harry Reid in the Senate wants to stack those judges in D.C. That is the court where lawsuits would be heard on 0bamacare.

#24 - Obviously, Math not my strong point - I´ll try again:

How much MORE is 17 Trillion (our estimated debt) than 8 Billion (our estimated population?

(1,000 Billion = 1 Trillion)

17 trillion of anything is 16,992 Billion more than 8 Billion.

I can understand how it is easier not to think about how much money we owe because all these zeros give you a headache!

Health Saving Accounts, Insurance across State borders, Medical Tort Reform in individual states.

Three small laws are able to replace Obamacare. With the Democrat Communist plan what we will get is Medicaid for all. Which is what we had before BHO. Everyone had medical treatment entering through medical emergency rooms. It was a Democrat lie that some lacked medical care. Mexicans cross into San Diego, walk in the Emergency Room of the great hospitals there and get heart bypass surgery entirely free.

The American Medical Association and AARP have been the great communist accomplices in this transformation. Doctors will lose their patients and income and the elderly will lose access to the doctor they like as Medicare Advantage evaporates. Enjoy Socialism, Pinko Fellow Travellers.

I´ve decided that the "train wreck" metaphor isn´t quite suitable.

The launch of BO(doesn´t really)care has been more like the launch of an airplane which does not have landing gear, is missing an engine (and maybe more, they just aren´t sure), the tail isn´t affixed with bolts, just Elmer´s Glue.

Cleared for take-off... and they knew it couldn´t fly, couldn´t navigate, couldn´t land.

The Dems have lost the trust of most of the American people. Kinda doubt that postponing the re-launch will fool people now that they´ve seen the kind of mechanism which has been foisted on them and their families.

After all it took them fifty years but they created them and made sure they´ll keep creating them forever. But then again, this was an easy slam dunk for the leftists to win and win big in 2014 (and they will win big). The GOP´s got goose eggs even with Obamacare gifting them.

N.B.- T-Bubba In another life I was a primary teacher (2nd and 3rd) and I know I write like I did, but in those grades you never, ever get into billions and trillions - you keep it simple - 2 + 2 = 4 - so they really understand computation.

Admittedly, Common Core now allows you to teach that 2 + 2 = 5!

The problem with our government is that they do not want us to comprehend what the **** they are doing, so they never, ever keep it simple.

Kimberly Munley was shot three times taking down Nidal Hasan in 2009. Then she got laid off. Yet she’s never stopped fighting for the victims the military ‘betrayed’ in that shooting. Just as in the last mass shooting at Fort Hood, the massacre on Wednesday ended when the gunman was confronted by a very brave policewoman. “It was clearly heroic what she did at that moment in time,” Lt.

Wednesday´s rampage at Fort Hood—the second in five years at the Killeen, Texas, Army post—revealed shortfalls in Defense Department efforts to tighten security at military installations world-wide. A 2009 shooting at Fort Hood brought recommendations for security improvements, such as better detecting threats from inside the military, but the Pentagon has yet to enact several important changes, and an independent review of Pentagon practices concluded last month that current procedures are "insufficient to ensure on-base security." Wednesday´s shooting by an active-duty soldier also cast new light on enforcing a policy that prohibits enlisted personnel from carrying concealed weapons on base. The attack

The Leland Yee story is one of the most remarkable in years. A California State Senator, Yee has long been a leading spokesman for gun control–it’s all for the children, you know. A popular politician who represents around one-half of San Francisco, Yee was about to run for Secretary of State when he was arrested for gun running. Specifically, he acted as an intermediary to buy shoulder-fired missiles and automatic weapons from a Muslim terrorist group in the Philippines and import them into the U.S. There were other charges, too; the usual bribery, money laundering, and so on.

God saves the queen. He saves this honorable court. But who will save the United States Senate?

The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid (D-Nev.), prevents amendments and pursues an unhinged vendetta against the Koch brothers, private citizens engaged in lawful political activity.

If John Kerry wants to live with his head in the clouds, he should stick to windsurfing. He’s making a further mess of everything in the Middle East. When President Obama, who lives in fantasies wrapped in pipe dreams himself, is fully awake, he should order the secretary of state to surf on home. Nobody plays desperation politics like the secretary of state. He wants to keep the “peace process,” so-called, alive if never well, and like a desperate gambler, keeps making bad bets to cover his losses until there’s no more room in the casino’s safe for his growing stack

Dems’ Voter-Fraud Denial

The spin doctors who deny the existence of voter fraud have no boundaries. “Plans to fight voter fraud are based on nightmares, tall tales, and paranoid fears,” says Scott Keyes of the liberal Center for American Progress. Voter fraud is so rare “you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud,” asserts Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project. Kim Strach, the new director of North Carolina’s Board of Elections, disagrees. She just searched a database that comprises about half the registered voters in the U.S. and found 35,750 voters in her state whose

WASHINGTON — White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act. But network officials refused to make the kind of accommodation they did previously for the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, for instance, and Obama was left instead cutting into the much smaller audiences of Ellen and other daytime shows. Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging

Rahm Emanuel is building a Second City. Two cities really, as the "two summers" theme shown in Episode 4 of "Chicagoland" suggests. One white, one black. One for the rich, one for the poor. One for private schools, one for closed schools. A new Chicago for the saved and the damned. Gold coast heavens and low-end hells. It´s biblical, binary. The mayor´s new Chicago is a second city for the first citizens who colonized the land and took it from the Pottawatomie. The mayor´s vision is not for most Chicagoans who live here now. It is not for Jason Barrett.

Many people who didn´t sign up during the government´s open enrollment period that ended Monday will soon find it difficult or impossible to get insured this year, even if they go directly to a private company and money is no object.

The Court did not rule as broadly as McConnell had hoped in the McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission case, which was decided Wednesday, but its decision could help him in his battle against the shadowy outside groups that oppose his reelection and that of several of his colleagues. The Court ruled Wednesday in a 5-4 decision that

Breitbart News recently charged a Texas tea party group at least $7,000 to promote and cover the group’s rally, according to a tea party organizer involved in the planning. On March 15, the group called Patriots Rally for Freedom held a rally in Martindale, Texas. In the lead-up to the event, organizers asked Breitbart News — which recently announced a “Texas bureau” — to cover the gathering. But according to Ken Crow, the tea party activist and founder of TeaPartyCommunity.com who made the call to Breitbart, the site would only cover the event if the tea party group paid for

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Washington - The company leading the legal challenge against birth control coverage under the new health care law offers its workers a retirement plan that includes investments in companies making contraceptive and abortion drugs. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. has a 401(k) plan featuring several mutual funds investing in pharmaceutical firms that produce intrauterine birth control devices, emergency contraceptive pills and drugs used in abortion procedures, according to Labor Department documents and a review of fund portfolios.
