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"?

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.

Washington - Hillary Rodham Clinton has spent the past several months discussing her foreign policy record as secretary of state, but on Thursday she officially dived back in to kitchen table issues during a panel discussion about equal pay for women, affordable child care and paid sick leave. “The difference women and men face in getting the kinds of jobs that will provide the kind of income they need for themselves and their families is roiling beneath the surface of the political debates,” Mrs. Clinton said.

The first person to buy an iPhone 6 in Perth, Australia, immediately dropped it onto a concrete floor on live TV. Early adopter Jack Cooksey was being interviewed outside Perth´s Apple Store by a morning television reporter, eager to show the world one of the first of the new iPhones in the wild. But such was his excitement, he opened the box a little too vigorously, and the costly device slipped out and onto the pavement. It didn´t seem to be damaged, and Jack said "It's all good" - but it hit the ground with such force it's hard to imagine it escaping without a scratch, at least.

A bright fireball that flashed across the night sky in the US earlier this month was more than likely a Russian spy satellite falling from orbit, meteorologists say. As it flew over the Rockies at roughly 10.30pm on 2 September (UTC: 3 September at 4.25am), 38 people reported witnessing the “slowest and brightest” meteor shower they’d ever seen. However, not all is as it appears, after Mike Hankey, the American Meteor Society’s Operations Manager explains that it was probably pieces of a spy satellite that had fallen from orbit and had broken up over Colorado and Wyoming – something the Russians deny.

Atlanta - The message from a furious public to the National Football League over the past few weeks has been clear: Charges of domestic violence should have serious consequences. But in a sign that the outrage has expanded, a federal judge in Alabama on Thursday faced abrupt and potent pressure to resign after he was charged with striking his wife last month at a luxury hotel here.

Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party and first minister of Scotland, who led the campaign for secession, conceded defeat in an address to cheering supporters. “I accept the verdict of the people,” he said. "And I call on all the people of Scotland to accept the democratic verdict of the people of Scotland.” The vote was a decisive 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor.

Security is being upgraded at the Australian parliament following "chatter" suggesting extremists could target it for attack. PM Tony Abbot said Australian Federal Police would assume responsibility for security at the site in Canberra. The move came a day after major anti-terrorism raids took place in Sydney. They were aimed at thwarting an alleged plan by Islamic State (IS) supporters to carry out killings in Australia, including an on-camera beheading. In recent weeks, IS - a militant Islamist movement which has seized vast areas of Iraq and Syria - has released video footage showing the beheadings of two American

The San Diego school district will return its armored military vehicle to the Department of Defense, school officials announced Thursday night. The district joins a list of agencies returning excess military equipment amid a national controversy over local law enforcement agencies using such equipment. The controversy erupted when police in Ferguson, Mo., used military equipment and tactics to quell protests after the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer. Law enforcement agencies in Ferguson, like hundreds of others, had received military equipment at no cost under the Excess Property Program.

That was a central theme Thursday during closing arguments in a landmark terrorism-financing trial in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, pitting victims of terrorist attacks in the Middle East against Arab Bank. “Who decides who’s a terrorist?” said Shand S. Stephens, a lawyer representing the bank, whose headquarters are in Jordan. “The plaintiffs have accused, by my count, over 150 people, and 12 charitable organizations, and the Saudi Committee, of being Hamas-associated terrorists.

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
