ObamaCare’s millennial disaster
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/6/2013 4:43:35 AM

When Barack Obama was catapulted into the Oval Office in 2008, it was with the help of millennials who turned out in record numbers and voted for him two-to-one over the GOP’s John McCain. Now his signature issue — ObamaCare — is in deep trouble. Once again, he is looking to America’s young to come through for him. Once again too, he’s relying on a campaign of speeches and public appearances to get them to do so. But in sharp contrast to 2008, he’s making his new appeal to a much more jaded demographic. According to a Harvard University poll released this

Any form of liberalism is a prepackaged disaster,it´s only a matter of time when false promises are exposed.It´s hard to tell what a college kid tinks these days,especially ones who have conservative parents barking in their ears about the real way to get ahead."But Dad,that´s not what Professor Brainbarnacle said."

But I wonder how many thought Obama would be a student loan forgiver at some point?I wonder how many thought healthcare was a reward,just for being a college student? What do these kids think when they hear foreigners are getting free or reduced cost tuition? "Hey,I´m an american,why am I getting shafted?" They need to go to diversity classes to get the answer.

When you coddle kids with equal outcome propaganda,you´re destroying the kid for life and it´s how you wind up with mass shooters who don´t see the system working for them.

This reminds me of the old Twilight Zone television programs where the story wrapped around a person who made a DEAL WITH THE DEVIL that was just too good to pass up with a guarantee from the devil that it would be a win win deal for the person. Well, in the end, the person lost everything and ended up in eternal torment while the devil laughed at them.

I think Obama was elected (and re-elected) on idealism, something he portrays so well in his speeches.....but now, and only now, the millennials are seeing that the words and deeds do not match............it would be nice to say that they saw glimmers of this all along, as NO speech ever matches the reality (he is getting to the bottom of Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious et al) but the truth is the light came on only when our young realized that they, in general great health and with minimal or no jobs and huge college debts, will be expected to pay for wildly overpriced insurance that doesn´t even FIT them,----or face a fine....which might be minimal to the man who is again spending $4 million bucks for yet another Hawaii Christmas vacation but which hurts them personally. All to keep the Obama tent up! I feel sorry for them, and yet THEY are the reason Obama was re-elected. It is about time they grow up-----and feel the pain the rest of us are feeling.

I believe that some millennials have graduated from the school of hard knocks. That is what happens when you fall for a smiling sweet talking liar and reality slaps you in the face. You learn a lesson you won´t soon forget. Having said that, I am not convinced they would not go to the polls and vote for him again. These kids are not critical thinkers. The indoctrination they are fed is deeply embedded and they are programmed to hate Republicans. They will fall again for the next sweet talking liar that comes down the path. Words mean more to them than actual actions. It is all about the optics.

There are voting blocs that will forever vote for communist democrats the millennial students are one and blacks being the other.
Republicans should never be foolish to think they could sway these groups to vote for them. Some might but they will do it on their own. It´s like George W. Bush wasting jet fuel to campaign at the NAACP it´s not worth the effort.
This worthless group of little communist in training are getting shafted by their Lightbringer and will find out the hard way.
That fine education and student loan debt along with the high cost of health care will really come in handy while mopping the floor at Burger King while hoping to move up to the drive through window. Suck it up millennials you just got screwed royally by Obama.

The Democrats are verging on a major defeat. They believed that they would succeed in subjugating the citizenry by gaining control of their healthcare. But the advance has stalled as a result of bureaucratic incompetence. Every day they are losing ground as more and more future voters desert the cause.

The use of the “nuclear option” by Harry Reid was a somewhat desperate attempt to trade an almost certain long-term loss of power (when the Republican’s take the Senate in 2014) to gain reinforcements right away on the Judicial Bench.

But two factors will ensure the Democrat’s ultimate defeat. First, the foundation of their strength and power is weakening. That foundation is the television media. In the past, television has been able to manufacture victories out of flickering lights. But that power is threatened by the growth of the Internet and social media.

The second is that leadership of the opposition will soon be in the hands of Ted Cruz.

It is not necessary to be a prophetic political predictor to foresee what is happening. Everything I (and many others) have been saying about 0bama, the sycophantic cult surrounding him, his grandiose yet obviously fraudulent promises, his brazen lies, has come true.
What puzzles me is that people who are well educated, successful in life, reasonable decision makers are saying they realize this now or are still not accepting it. I keep telling my Lib friends "If you had exhibited the same rationality and discerning power at your job you would be fired long ago instead of having a successful 30/35 year business career." Can someone explain this?

Somebody suggested that Obamacare may be Obama´s Viet Nam. You remember Viet Nam. Night after night on the news we saw young men dying for no particular reason other than the fact that government thought it was a worthy goal.

Starting January 1, 2014 we will hear of people dying because of Obamacare. They will have lost their insurance. They will have been put on Medicaid and been given substandard treatment. They will have been caught in a decision by the death panels. The only group who will be unaffected by this are the very rich, who can buy their way out of it (very much like Viet Nam). It will grind on and on. And eventually Obama will become a pariah in much of the country, just like LBJ.

Let them wallow in their smug arrogance at voting twice for the hip and cool one while they look for a decent paying job so they can move out of their parent´s house, pay off their student debt and pay for a new smartphone upgrade.

Two continuing problems: until Conservatives take back/over control of the public schools and higher learning - we will have generation after generation of millenial idiots.

And second - television. Ever since the 1960s and the first televised presidential debate, the presidential campaign has become all about appearances and not substance. So long as we are into optics -the threat of another Obama will continue.

Well. I guess i am more blessed than i ever realized! I´ve got nieces and nephews who are in the "millennial" category, BUT they are thinkers. They are therefore conservative.

There is a logical sequence there. They think, therefore they are conservative (politically).

They do tell me that some of their friends/acquaintances are thoroughly resistant to facts, to the truth.

So the question: how did these great young people turn out to be such exceptions? Primarily, they were raised in families where there was discussion, impatience with status quo "thinking" and with simple regurgitation of what anybody tries to inculcate (starting with the cartoons they´d watch as children!).

So it seems that it is a habit of the mind: thinking about things, reasoning, practicing logic and common sense; these separate the Individual from the motley rabble of sheep.

Assuming they buy into Obama´s plea "I need your help", the millennial disaster is going to become a lot worse when practical experience hits these "Young Healthies" upside the head.

Let´s assume further that a YH has a policy costing him $200 a month with a $4,000 deductible. My experience with deductibles - auto, home, etc. - has been that the deductible must be satisfied completely before any insurance compensation is paid.

What happens when our YH, who normally visits a doctor rarely, incurs a sudden medical bill of $3,000? Imagine his astonishment when, in addition to paying $200 faithfully every month, he now finds he´s got to pony up the whole $3,000 in cash and never sees a dime from the insurance company. His out of pocket expense for that year is $5,400.

As #10 notes in the comment about social media, Facebook hath no fury like a YH burned by his Messiah.

This younger generation is just now learning that all of those neat toys that they so like (video games, iphone, ipad, computers, big screen TV´s etc.) cost MONEY. And that is something that they don´t have. And can´t get any because they can´t find a job. And they are getting notices that their student loans are overdue payment. So, for at least time, they are turning against Obozo. However, if the job outlook should turn upward by many degrees (which I seriously doubt) these same millennials will jump right back into the same ditch. After all, that´s all they know having been thoroughly indoctrinated in socialism for their entire lives. (unless they have conservative parents of course).

I have talked a lot with friends who have Millennials at home, living in group apartments. an/pr the park bench. The park bench ones so poisoned their relationship with their conservative parents that the bench was their only solution.

All these millennials hate living at home, because they have to follow their parents rules or leave. The kicker to all this is the mass majority of them voted for No-Bama.

Now they are feeling the pain of having to buy health insurance, pay for a roof over their heads, and keeping the lights on.

These young adults are disillusioned and afloat in a sea of no hope or change, and I for one do not cry for their rescue. They choose their own path.

Now they are living their dream with the consequences of their decision.

They are not liking the manifestations of their choices. Some times you just have to learn the hardway.

I have had the pleasure of mentoring several well educated millennials and found that in general they have a thirst for mentoring. To say they were malleable wouldn´t quite be accurate, rather they had never heard of certain points of view before and had the capacity and interest to objectively explore. I get a sense that they know they have been in BS world.

Obama´s hidden message to the Millennials was:
"If you want your brain-full-of-mush, you can KEEP your brain-full-of-mush (SUCKERS)." Now they have buyer´s (and LIAR´S) remorse? Millennials, once you sign up for socialism, unless your skills are extraordinary, get used to swabbing the floors at McDonalds and living in your mom´s basement while "those more deserving" get to "ride in the cart" while YOU pull.

WASHINGTON – It´s not a glitzy job. In fact, it´s kind of boring. But these days, the Office of the Surgeon General is at the center of a political storm -- as Republicans stall the president´s pick for the post of America´s top doc. The controversy over nominee Vivek Murthy, though, raises two questions: Who would he replace, and does America even need a surgeon general anymore? The answer to the first question is Rear Adm. Boris Lushniak, not a household name since his appointment by President Obama last July. But the answer to the second question is open for debate. While the title

But they´re refusing to turn over details about its use or heavily censoring files when they do. Police say Stingray, a suitcase-size device that pretends it´s a cell tower, is useful for catching criminals, but that´s about all they´ll say.

Nobody was surprised when Attorney General Eric Holder decided the special prosecutor requested by Sen. Ted Cruz to investigate the IRS scandal isn´t needed. Why? Because Holder and his boss in the Oval Office refuse to make the same mistake that led to Richard Nixon´s undoing in the Watergate scandal. Nixon allowed his attorney general to name a special prosecutor to investigate Watergate, confident that his Justice Department loyalists could contain any ensuing damage. But Nixon miscalculated and it ended disastrously for him with the infamous Saturday Night Massacre. Nixon fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox, thus precipitating resignations from Attorney

Another day, another unwelcome poll for the White House. Pew reports that Hispanic support for Obamacare has lurched downwards from 60-plus percent in September 2013 to 47 percent. That matters a lot, because it possibly means there’s less chance that the GOP’s campaign against Obamacare will prompt the large Hispanic turnout that President Barack Obama needs in November to keep Sen. Harry Reid in charge of the Senate. So far, Democrats have expected Latinos’ support for Obamacare will help them vote Democratic in November. But the poll showing tepid support for Obamacare might force Obama to spend more time and money pushing Obamacare up

American Medical Association: Obamacare

Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/20/2014 10:54:14 AM     Post Reply
The American Medical Association is protesting an Obamacare provision it argues will leave doctors with the bill for up to two months of unpaid care. The provision requires insurers to allow patients with federally-subsidized health insurance plans a 90-day grace period to pay their premiums before canceling the coverage. Insurers are on the hook for the first 30 days of care, if the customer never pays up, but doctors will be stuck without payment for any services between 30 and 90 days, until the coverage is canceled. The American Medical Association was a strong supporter of Obamacare. “If a patient

By the time the second World Trade Center tower collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, the whole world was watching it. We may assume that Vladimir Putin was watching. Mr. Putin, a quick calculator of political realities, would see that someone was going to get hit for this, and hit hard. He was right of course. The Bush presidency became a war presidency that day, and it pounded and pursued the Islamic fundamentalists of al Qaeda without let-up or apology.

Oh by the way, while Washington is debating whether enrollment in Obamacare is terrible or just awful, the Washington Examiner brings to our attention a February 2014 cost report by eHealthInsurance that reveals the premiums for private health insurance policies (those outside of Obamacare) have risen by 39 to 56 percent for individual and family plans. And The Hill’s Elise Viebeck writes this morning that “Health industry officials say Obamacare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.” So Obamacare has resulted in higher costs, limited plans, restricted doctor options, a reduction

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W.

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn’t intend any compliment or derogatory––it’s called the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

In a speech Friday, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised illegal immigrants as "risk takers" who embody the entrepreneurial spirit of America and doubled down on his defense of Common Core. According to the Miami-Herald, Bush made his remarks in front of business leaders in Florida. “People who come here legally and illegally are the risk takers,” Bush reportedly said. “If you’re living in a rural area of Guatemala and you come, you’re a bigger risk taker than those who stay,” he added. Of course, the first action of those who come to the country illegally is breaking the law. Bush also said he

Here’s a question I’ll bet nobody ever asked Jay Carney at a White House press briefing: Why does Michelle Obama’s mother live at the White House at taxpayer expense? (If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was
