Obamacare is about to
decide the midterms — again

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/3/2014 9:34:59 PM

Analysis/Opinion: The @#%& is about to hit the fan. No, not ISIS moving to attack the West, not Russia invading Ukraine, not Ebola coming to America, not the Middle East, not Libya (where al Qaeda — surprise — now rules), not even Ferguson. Health care costs are about to explode — again — and just in time for the 2014 midterm elections. When the supermajority of Democrats in the Senate passed the ironically named Affordable Care Act in 2009, one of the chief requirements of the bill was to force health insurers, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and health care centers to share in the staggering $2 trillion cost over

I´m sure that 0bama will use his mighty pen to write yet another extension or exemption till after the midterms. s/o. Any GOP in Congress willing to stand up to our "Prince of Despair"?

I agree. Look for another extension by Obama come October first.

Ditto. The big question remaining is whether gullible voters will fall for it only to find out after election that they´re paying 30% more.

An ironic unintended consequence of a raise in salary would be that you pay more for 0 care because the subsidy is based on your income.

What will it portend if the Dems come out ahead in the November elections?

Would the integrity of the voting booth come under question? The viability of our democracy? Would it signal a reign of moral confusion?

There´s no question that the Unaffordable Care Act is a monstrosity that will cost everyone more (unless you get a subsidy from Uncle Sugar). The real question is whether or not the populace will wake up, rise up, and vote all of the bums out who supported it.

Boehner should get behind the Bully Pulpit NOW and start telling the truth about how bad Obama-care is. Ask where our $2,500 savings is? Tell about the high cost of prescription drugs. Ask why people are losing their doctors and only have access to certain hospitals. Plenty of negativity to go around.

As to the question posed, "Any GOP in Congress willing to stand up?" Sure, Ted Cruz. But what about members of GOP leadership? ........crickets. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin "sued" obozo, but when it came time to actually use his senatorial power to do something, he turned his wrath on Cruz. The dems are too corrupt to lead, the GOP too stupid.

I can´t help but wonder if even this is going to move the voting public. They have swallowed everything Obama has given them to drink so far. November is going to be interesting. It will definitely be an eye opener either way. It is going to take an overwhelming number of voters rejecting the democrat party to overcome their voting shenanigans. It is an opportunity for Americans of any party to once and for all express their anger at this president and his pathetic party. I hope it is not an opportunity missed because it may just be our last.

The key for Republicans is not to scatter their ammunition and try to strike everything like a lion attacking a herd of zebras simultaneously. The MSM and the ´Rats expects/hopes exactly that to happen. Romney´s famous 47% are NOT going to change their votes - period, as 0bama likes to say. But some of them are likely to get lazy and careless and not show up. Besides you need 52% to really win an election. The remaining 5 to 7% are open to be converted and Republicans should stop the infighting and work to convert them over and get them and the grass roots to the polls.

But wait, there´s more!

Curl fails to mention that BO promised the average family would save $1500. If you drop Curl´s initial health care cost by that amount he was paying $3132 and now is paying $13164. That is a 300% INCREASE over BO´s promise, over FOUR times what he was paying.

Add in the deductible increase and Curl is paying over $12000 more in out of pocket costs.

That is INSANE!

It was also extremely predictable. The liberals numbers for BOCare never worked out. They just made stuff up, i.e. THEY LIED.

And as Curl points out, it has and will continue to get worse. Less people will be able to afford the increased costs. There will be a choice between less people covered and expanding subsidies. With only desperately sick people getting the coverage, costs will explode per person covered. BOCare is in the death spiral long expected by Conservatives.

You have to love the timing. Most households are receiving highly effective anti liberal campaign ads, their insurance bills, direct to them, something they cannot toss in the trash and ignore, something that costs the Republicans nothing to mail.

Liberals hoisted on their own petard.

The democrats are definitely worried about the midterms because of ACA and particularly black turnout: on Sept 4 a public forum, where monitor and attack liberals, they began posting old b&w photos of early era lynchings of blacks and claimimg these were "cons". It was a concerted effort for sure. I wrote up two scathing paragraphs and posted it to every one of them. They actually quit doing it. Tidbit: "Looks like the leftists got their talking points for the day. Do you idiots think we don´t notice you are all bringing up the same thing? You got egg on your face re Ferguson/don´t shoot so you stoop to this to gin up blacks so they´ll turn out? Desperate, pathetic".

My family has gotten ANOTHER extension (in NH). If we hadn´t, we would be trapped, and I mean trapped, in the NH health "care" system, and to a limited number of Providers.

I have had very serious health problems. My providers are in MA. Part of the reason for my situation is my subjection to a NH provider. If I am trapped in NH for my care, I am cooked.

I suspect that there are many, many people like myself in NH, and many in comparable situations around the country. We know of a few critical-care cancer patients in the country who by now probably have not survived.

In a sense, BO and his team behave like terrorist wreckers. I hesitate to use that word for obvious reasons, but how better to describe the damage done to every filament of our national fabric, including our Military.

We are suffering an overload of crises, with a new one reaching the top of the news cycle each day, almost.

But when you have a medical need, the stark reality of BO´s destructive machinations is profoundly, frighteningly experienced.

The ACA pushers will attempt to keep the disastrous truth about their brainchild hidden for as long as they can but the entire system will eventually implode; it´s only a matter of time. Meanwhile people with real medical needs suffer in limbo with the Three Stooges level of coverage and performance of the system.

The only good thing about the whole obamacare mess is that obama can´t hide from it, it´s named for its father, the Father of Lies. He has managed to blame every other disaster of his administration on somebody else but, due to his huge ego, he can´t get his fingerprints off of this one. Neither can the democrats who went along with him.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas is carefully evaluating a patient who may have Ebola Virus Disease. Based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history, the patient has been admitted into “strict isolation,” said spokeswoman Candace White in a prepared statement. Preliminary test results are expected Tuesday. The hospital is following Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors, White said.

United Nations - Syria´s foreign minister said Monday that the U.S.-led bombing campaign should be expanded to target other militant groups besides the Islamic State group, noting that the fight against terrorism has aligned the Syrian regime with its Western and Arab opponents in a fight against a common enemy. "They have the same ideology. They have the same extremist ideology," Walid al-Moallem told The Associated Press in urging a widening of the U.S.-led aerial campaign to include all Islamic rebel factions fighting President Bashar Assad´s government.

In Arkansas, Gov. Mike Beebe touted signs of a 2 percent drop in premiums in the state’s Obamacare insurance exchange as proof the health law is working. In Alaska, though, Gov. Sean Parnell said some plans’ premiums would spike by as much as 37 percent — evidence, he said, that his concerns about the law “are, unfortunately, proving to be true.” As Obamacare’s exchanges prepare to enter their second round of open enrollment, beginning Nov. 15, more than half of the states have released some rate information, and while supporters anticipate bargains and critics warn of “rate shock,” the truth for most

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel, a small federal agency that investigates whistleblower complaints, announced the settlements on Monday.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Air traffic controllers say the damage to the control center outside Chicago is unlike anything they have seen before. Critical communications equipment to manage planes in the skies will have to be replaced. The FAA said Sunday evening that it would take until October 13 - more than two weeks - to get the facility up and running at full capacity. Until then, there will continue to be significant disruptions to air travel in the region. Sunday marked the third day of delays and cancellations as airlines advise passengers to adjust their plans. "It's been about two days since I was supposed to take off," one passenger said.

Air travelers on Sunday can likely expect further delays and cancellations at Chicago airports as the FAA labored to return traffic to normal after an arson fire Friday at the agency´s Aurora radar facility wreaked havoc in the nation´s air travel system.

Syrian militant group al-Nusra Front has denounced US-led air strikes as "a war against Islam". In an online statement, the al-Qaeda-linked group called on jihadists around the world to target Western and Arab countries involved. It comes as the US and other nations widened air strikes against Islamic State (IS) fighters in Iraq and Syria. The Pentagon said jets hit the Syrian city of Raqqa on Saturday as well as IS positions near the Turkish border. Kurdish fighters have been defending the Kurdish town of Kobane on the Syrian side of the border since an IS advance sent about 140,000 civilians fleeing to Turkey.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
