Obamacare – The incompetence and
denials keep coming

Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/4/2014 8:11:26 AM

Two stories converge today to illuminate how the White House and the Democratic establishment are attempting to hide the next wave of Obamacare failures. Both Post stories reveal how the president and Democratic leaders at the state level are hiding problems with Obamacare instead of confronting and fixing problems. First, Amy Goldstein of The Post reveals that the appeals process guaranteed in the Obamacare law does not actually exist. The story outlines an almost comical process that requires citizens who seek a fair hearing to have an innocent, HealthCare.gov-generated mistake corrected

Have one of Dear Leader´s toady ´journalists´ ask him the question--´Do you think Fox News had any affect on the ACA roll out?
Is there ANY reader who doubts what 0´s answer would be?

The incompetence is an artifact of Lib Cronies doing whatever Obie wants.

The real game is that they mean this to destroy the current system then fail so "Single Payer" is the only thing left...

This is the essential truth of the issue: "The problem is that voters can’t just learn to ignore the calamity that is Obamacare because health care and health insurance are vital to the life of every American."

This is an issue that as direct and immediate impact on almost ALL Americans. You don´t need to listen to a politician or a pundit to find out about it. You know what is happening to YOU and you FAMILY. You know that your insurance costs are skyrocketing or your insurance has been dropped altogether. You know that your out of pocket deductibles are going through the roof and that the doctors and hospitals that you have been using are no longer accessible to you. You know that if you have tried to sign up on a government exchange that you have been faced with long waits and mass confusion about subsidy support and costs. In the end you are often not sure if you really got insurance at all or if all your efforts went into a digital desert.

They can´t ignore or spin this because all American have first hand experience with the disaster of BOCare. And anyone with an ounce of common sense is going to be well aware this was solely a dem operation from the passing of the law to the implementation and abject failure. They will be well aware that the Republicans have fought against this stupidity from the beginning and will start to listen to reasonable alternatives offered by Republicans (hey guys, wake up and make those alternatives available).

BOCare is a tar baby of the dems own creation.

All politicians can tax all citizens out of their skulls with barely an obedient whimper. But when politicians force citizens to become CUSTOMERS, watch out !
Not only will millions suffer misery and frustration, untold numbers will suffer premature death. A monstrous catastrophe is on the way!

The rest of the story is that everybody signing up for this
Communist master plan, is subject to total, ID THEFT from day one. As operated by Obama´s underworld Acorn organizer thugs, under the totally phony name of NAVIGATORS (what criminal mind thought THAT one up?), the lives of all Americans forced to sign up will be even less private than NSA, IRS and credit card spying.

Note: For all who fly or go out to sea in ships, the navigator is the most professionally trained person on board. For some devious commie propagandist agent to give that fine name to those predictably, guaranteed thieves, is yet another Marxist absurdity. Old Leninist communist rule: "steal good words and put them to bad use".
Almost those exact words.

FTA: “This is an administration that wants to hide things rather than fix things. (snip) It is insulting to voters for the Democrats to shamelessly shift blame, plead ignorance and pretend things are fine.”

Obama is adept at one American tradition: Hide and seek.

Democrats: Insulting voters since their inception.

Hey WAPO, did you read it or did you wait for it to be passed to find out what was in it??? You should have known this thing was a Turkey from day one since not even one RINO voted for it, not even Snow, Collins or the renegade McCain.

The democrats own this pos and will pay for it in 2014. In the mean time turn the light on and watch them scramble like cockroaches.

The only certain fact that I, ( and I follow the web two hrs. a day ) with a friends help, have been able to ascertain about O´Bummercare is that it is a law now , and from what I can gather, you have to sign up for it by the end of March. That´s it. No info on where or how. I read and hear a ton about how bad it is, that info is in abundance. May a trillion sand flies infest those who brot this curse on us.

I am no silver-tongued orator, but is anyone else out there frustrated by the lack of cogent 15 second sound bites attacking DemoCare and those who voted for it? It is no longer the pResident’s –hang it on those who voted for it on Christmas Eve. So call it “DemoCare” as in Democrat and Demolish.

Try this for a debate or ad:

R to Demorat: Did you vote for the Unaffordable Care Act?
D: YES
R: Did you read the bill?
If the reply is: “No” -then: Why not? Do you always sign contracts without reading them? Is that how you bought your house? Is that how you bought DemoCare for us?
If Yes—then: Looks like you need to go back to public school and learn how to read… Oh, never mind! the bill was not written in Ebonics.

How ´bout some more, Ldotters? Looks like the RNC needs our help.

Obamacare:They Shoot Horses
Don´t They?
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/31/2014 7:31:12 AM     Post Reply
A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

Why Obama Scares Me

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Mayor de Blasio took great pride Thursday in signing the first piece of legislation of his mayoralty: the paid-sick-leave bill. But the move only illustrates why a personal-finance Web site has just ranked the city one of the worst places for finding a job. Under the new law, come April 1 companies with as few as five workers must offer at least five paid sick days a year. But April 1 is likely to turn out to be April Fool’s for New York workers.

RNC Chairman: Obamacare still stinks

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS
Wall Street Journal, by Jim Jordan    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/20/2014 8:21:06 AM     Post Reply
The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Cuomo’s grasp of public opinion

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

   

 



 
Throw the lead to November
The Hill, by James Carville    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/19/2014 8:50:02 AM     Post Reply
In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Next Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning constitutional challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate brought by Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties. (snip) Neither company objects to birth control, per se. Indeed, both provide coverage to their employees for most types of contraception. Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals. Such a decision, progressives shriek, would constitute a victory for the dark forces behind the “war on women,” erode employee protections against discrimination, and dramatically reduce access to health care

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) has been near the top of the list of the most vulnerable senators facing reelection since day one of the 2014 election cycle. But notable developments in recent weeks suggest her seat is increasingly at risk of falling into Republican hands.Republican groups have blitzed Landrieu over the airwaves while she has gotten limited cover from Democratic allies; polls show she is locked in a close race against Rep. Bill Cassidy (R); and now, Landrieu is reserving $2.6 million in airtime between April and June, an apparent recognition that the cascade of opposition ads has forced her

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

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 the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

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

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

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
