Politico: Even Liberals Want Obamacare
Employer Mandate Repealed

Breitbart Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/6/2014 4:02:11 PM

The unpopular, job-killing Obamacare provision that forces businesses with 50 or more employees to pick up the tab for workers´ health insurance or face a hefty tax has now lost support from even liberals, Politico Magazine reported Sunday. Liberals ranging from President Barack Obama´s own former press secretary Robert Gibbs to the liberal Urban Institute and Commonwealth Fund say ditching the employer mandate makes sense and would reduce "distortions" in the labor market. Moreover, as they note, most large businesses already provide health insurance; the provision is only expected to increase coverage by 200,000 nationwide. Furthermore, Obamacare´s employer mandate compliance

Wait one minute, now let me make sure I understand this: If a company decides to provide all but abortoficents with their health care plan, that is a problem; but if they offer no health care plan at all, that is not a problem....

There is only two reasons a Dem would publically state they want a reapeal.
1. Re-elect me.
2. When they said someone would have to pay for it, I didn´t think it would be ME.

That´s right. It hit THIER wallet, too. There are only two ways to motivate Dems. Threaten to take away thwir political position, or hit them in their money bags.

The moron Democrats who passed the law are finally realizing that employers and employees will blame the Democrats when they lose the level of coverage they have been enjoying.

Let the Dems try and repeal the employer mandate and they will still be blamed for their colossal mistake in passing this law. It´s ok for the individual mandate, the Dems think, because the numbers affected are actually quite small, particularly after new Medicaid sign ups are segregated.

The Dems have finally realized millions will be forced to get their health insurance coverage through the Federal exchange. This will affect the top management as well as the underlings. Take your medicine, Dems. You and Obama created this mess.

There is nothing in this law that warrants not being repealed. In particular that includes the 26-year-old "adult children" provision and the guaranteed insurability (pre-existing conditions). All of it is misguided nanny-state, government intrusiveness. The cost of those "popular provisions" is born by those without adult children and by those who sign up for insurance while still healthy.

Listen to me...seriously...

I want Obamacare to be fully implemented in 2015. I want the employer mandate to be fully implemented. Why? I want all those clever, educated, compassionate liberals to feel the effects of their stupidity.

I want them to pay through the nose. I want them to lose their homes, their Volvos, their kids´ college educations. I want them to fully experience the pain of unbridled liberalism.

Yes, we´ll suffer too. I don´t care. This is necessary. This is the ultimate purge that will save this country.

When is enough enough? Remember, there is no "government". The government is just your neighbors, friends, and sometimes even your relatives doing this to you.

People screwing other people so they don´t have to actually produce something of value.

Yeah, I know, we need SOME government. I agree. About 10% of what we´ve got.

Without the employer mandate, obamacare will complete its downward plunge to a full fall, flat on its face. The economy can not continue its fragile existence with this huge added burden on the taxpayers. They will not be able to afford their own coverage plus pay the subsidies for the parasites. Repeal of the whole mess is the only way to avoid a full depression.

Monday at the Laborfest event in Milwaukee, President Barack Obama gave a passionate speech in his plea for fair wages for workers. At a raised pitch, he said, "I´m not asking for the moon.

The novelist, Patrick McLaw, an eighth-grade language-arts teacher at the Mace's Lane Middle School, was placed on leave by the Dorchester County Board of Education, and is being investigated by the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office, according to news reports from Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Kerry spent Labor Day enjoying himself while the Obama administration still admittedly has no strategy for dealing with the threat of ISIS in Iraq. Kerry was last seen kiteboarding in mid-August in Nantucket. Kerry’s last documented work-related activity was seen in the pages of Saturday’s New York Times, in the form of an op-ed entitled “To Defeat Terror, We Need the World’s Help: The Threat of ISIS Demands A Global Coalition.” During his 2004 presidential campaign, Kerry — whose wife inherited her late Republican husband’s ketchup fortune — genuinely believed that his enthusiasm for water sports would make him seem

When Leandra Becerra Lumbreras was born, the dust had still not settled on the Civil War, Teddy Roosevelt was a little-known cowboy in the Dakotas, and no one had ever heard of radio, basketball or the airplane. Dwight Eisenhower, Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth and Adolph Hitler were not even alive when Lumbreras arrived on Aug. 31, 1887, in a small Mexican village.

Riyadh - Members of Saudi Arabia´s religious police roughed up a British resident of Riyadh after they caught him paying at a women-only cash desk, local media reported on Monday. Saudi Arabia imposes a strict interpretation of Islamic laws, notably a segregation of the sexes.

Think of the potential for entertainment. It’s fun to think about how the media would drive itself crazy trying to choose sides between Joe and Hillary.

Justin Sink of The Hill recently reported: Biden fuels ’16 talk with New Hampshire visit.

President Obama cleared his schedule — and probably his plate — for his commander-in-chef’s wedding Saturday night. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were guests at the nuptials of Sam Kass, their devoted family chef, and MSNBC host Alex Wagner. The well-connected couple was set to be married at a trendy farm-to-table restaurant in Westchester County called Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills. The upscale restaurant doesn’t have traditional menus but offers a “grazing, pecking, rooting” selection of in-season foods and flavors for $198, or just two items for $138.

The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’ Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change. But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and

DUNDEE, N.Y. — Five years after it exploded into a political conflagration over “death panels,” the issue of paying doctors to talk to patients about end-of-life care is making a comeback, and such sessions may be covered for the 50 million Americans on Medicare as early as next year. Bypassing the political process, private insurers have begun reimbursing doctors for these “advance care planning” conversations as interest in them rises along with the number of aging Americans. People are living longer with illnesses, and many want more input into how they will spend their final days, including whether they want

The patriarchs met in the Maronite Catholic patriarchate of Bkirki to discuss the plight of embattled Christians in the Middle East, who have been targeted for annihilation by ISIL. The meeting was attended by a number of Western diplomats and UN representatives. Following the meeting, Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rai´s envoy, Bishop Boulos Sayyah, read the statement aloud,

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
