As Obamacare Premiums Soar, Dems Lie
Real Clear Politics, by Betsy McCaughey

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 5/17/2018 2:32:20 AM

America has a health insurance problem because politicians would rather lie about it than solve it. Obamacare regulations caused premiums for people buying their own insurance to more than double between 2013 and 2017, and then soar even higher in 2018. With huge hikes predicted again in 2019, the Affordable Care Act will have caused premiums to triple in six years. Ouch. But instead of telling the truth about why this is happening, politicians are dishing out lies. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is already announcing what he´s going to do about the rate hikes. "We Democrats are going to be relentless in making sure the

Comments:
The lies and obfuscation that Schumer is planning, fit in well with the lies and obfuscation that they´re dishing out in the Russian probe. Once a Dem, always a Dem...I guess they can´t help themselves.

Leftists know that as painful as the human condition may be....it is still helpful to create a disaster so that they can come to the rescue.

Once again we see that the Fire Department is lousy with arsonists.

Here is the crux of the problem:
"Five percent of the population consumes almost 50 percent of the health care, but under Obamacare, everyone pays the same premium."

The real question was, would the American People support an increase in taxes to make sure that the extremely expensive care needed by 5% of the population would be covered. In essence, the care for the 5% would double the costs of all other Americans.

This may be a valid question to put in front of the People. There could be many possible solutions including a tax for coverage of catastrophic medical costs. Most people would have their regular health insurance and if their costs exceeded some very high amount, they could petition for relief.

But the dems didn´t go about this honestly. As usual, they saw this as an opportunity to grab power through control of the health industry. There was no need for such a sweeping power grab. 95% of the people needed NO changes.

Of course the dems lie. Their purpose was control and power and eventually government controlled health care, which the people clearly did NOT want. BO´s promises were all lies and the predicted Death Spiral of higher costs and lack of subscribers that can afford enormous premiums and deductibles has been happening since the law was passed.

This was always part of the plan, and Hilary would be proposing, pushing, single payer right now as the ´fix´.
Also, remember, this was a tax increase and the Dems, (and GOPe), had lots of ideas on how to siphon off this money for themselves. Breaking up the Healthcare Industry, as with big Tech, would be very beneficial for all of We The People.

A mother´s effort to honor her young children went terribly wrong when the tattoo she got of her son´s name was spelled incorrectly — so she took what some might call an unusual approach and named her son after the tattoo. "Kevin," the two-year-old son of Johanna Sandstrom, of Sweden, was renamed "Kelvin" after a tattoo artist inked the wrong name on her arm. (snip) When she returned to the tattoo shop, Sandstrom claims the tattoo artist laughed and said the only thing he could do to fix the situation was give her a refund. She said that, after realizing it would take

Inside the Demilitarised Zone,

The four-kilometre-wide strip dividing North and South Korea is an abyss. It is not so much that history has stopped along the Demilitarised Zone, more that it seems to seize and skip and stutter, so that if you look too closely at events in and from it you get a sense of motion sickness, if not outright vertigo. The Demilitarised Zone is a preposterous place, not least for its name. The land on either side is lined with barbed wire, watched over by balloons and satellites, drones and electronic sensors; it is sown with mines and braced by two vast

Teachers in some of Berlin’s most heavily migrant-populated schools have complained that they are seeing a large increase in bullying along religious lines, primarily from Muslim students. Hildegard Greif-Gross, director of the Peter Petersen Elementary School in Neukölln, claimed that there are many examples of religious bullying even with younger students. Greif-Gross said that Muslim students would bully others on as little as bringing a ham sandwich for their lunch because they were taught pork is forbidden in Islam, Berliner Zeitung reports. “Even gummy bears are not considered clean,” Greif-Gross added noting

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point is posthumously admitting Florida school shooting victim Peter Wang, who dreamed of attending the prestigious academy. Wang could have been in the Class of 2025. The 15-year-old’s funeral is today. West Point conferred a letter of admission, along with honorarium tokens, to his family, local West Point alumnus Chad Maxey said. Wang died in his JROTC uniform on Wednesday, holding the door open to allow others to escape, as gunman Nikolas Cruz shot and killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, authorities and witnesses said.

Beijing — A group of influential Catholics published an open letter Monday to express their shock and disappointment about a report that the Vatican could soon reach a deal with the Chinese government, warning that it could create a schism in the church in China.

Sen. Rand Paul speaks about the spirit of why he is holding up the passage of the budget deal through the Senate: SEN. RAND PAUL: When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party. But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party. You see, opposition seems to bring people together, and they know what they´re not for. But then they get in power and they decide, we´re just going to spend that money too. We´re going to send that money to our friends this time. The hypocrisy hangs in the air and chokes anyone

President Trump has spoken of his desire for a grand military parade since the early days of his presidency. During a January 18 meeting, he directed top generals to organize such a parade on the scale of France’s Bastille Day celebrations, reports Greg Jaffe and Philip Rucker for The Washington Post. This Tuesday, Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers confirmed the U.S. Department of Defense is in the process of reviewing potential dates for a parade. What would such a display look like?

Over the weekend, a United Airlines passenger named Dexter was getting ready to board a flight from Newark to Los Angeles. He had his ticket ready. He was, incidentally, looking pretty great. But Dexter was not allowed to board the plane. Dexter, you see, is a peacock. According to Daniella Silva of NBC News, the peacock, which is reportedly an emotional support animal, and his human were turned away from their flight at the Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday. United Airlines told Silva in a statement that the bird “did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.”

The Holy See has reportedly asked two Chinese bishops to stand aside to make way for illicitly ordained, Chinese government-backed counterparts. A Vatican delegation asked Bishop Peter Zhuang of Shantou and Bishop Jospeh Guo Xijin of Mindong to retire or accept demotion in order to smooth relations with the Chinese government. (Snip) An underground priest in Mindong said Catholics would feel conflicted over the move. “We of course feel hard to accept but do we have the right to oppose the Vatican?” He said that he may leave the priesthood over the Vatican’s decision.

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year.

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

Democrats in Iowa, like Democrats everywhere, have gone around the bend. Last Thursday, Tom Steyer, a leftist hypocrite of epic proportions, headlined a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com
