Obamacare for life

Low down, lying,skulking pieces of shit

Never in my life will I vote for for a rat bastard that has an “R” in front of their name

You are the party of Obama and Obamacare

Not one penny, one voice of support, one vote

Ever

Treasonous fucking liars

All they do there is lie and enrich themselves at our expense

Forty some odd votes against Obamacare until it matters

….Then Fuck you

Well Fuck you right back you Rat Bastards

I’m out

WASHINGTON (AP) — “Obamacare” lives on.

“Senate Republicans, short of votes, abandoned their latest and possibly final attempt to kill the health care law Tuesday, just ahead of a critical end-of-the-week deadline.

The repeal-and-replace bill’s authors promised to try again at a later date, while President Donald Trump railed against “certain so-called Republicans” who opposed the GOP effort. But for now, Trump and fellow Republicans who vowed for seven years to abolish President Barack Obama’s law will leave it standing and turn their attention to overhauling the nation’s tax code instead.

The GOP’s predicament was summed up bluntly by Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, a lead author of the legislation: “Through events that are under our control and not under our control, we don’t have the votes.”

“Am I disappointed? Absolutely,” he said after a GOP lunch attended by Vice President Mike Pence.

Standing alongside Cassidy, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “We haven’t given up on changing the American health care system. We are not going to be able to do that this week, but it still lies ahead of us.”

Rand Paul: ‘Easily 35 No Votes’ Against Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.0

Idiots

I actually expected Paul Ryan’s image to come up when I Googled the term

Instead it was Curly

But even Curly has more sense than Ryan and the RINO’S

Every Republican in the country should be running as far and fast as they can from this

No one sent them there to “Repeal and replace”

They are simply recycling Demspeak

They were sent there to repeal and get the fuck out of our business

Stop meddling in inter state insurance sales

Stop price fixing Pharmaceuticals

Stop limiting the amount of Doctors

Get out of the free market period

All the RINO’s want to put their brand on this and it is doomed to fail

And that shows you how smart they really are

Republican rats still stalling on Obamacare repeal

“A key lawmaker working on an Obamacare replacement insisted Thursday that the healthcare law will be repealed, despite widening skepticism among even Republicans.

“Yeah, it’s gonna happen,” Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon.

But Burgess didn’t have an answer when pressed on when Congress will vote to repeal and replace the healthcare law — although he did say it will happen before the next CPAC.

“We will get it done,” he responded simply.

Burgess heads the health subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of two House committees working on a replacement to the healthcare law. The plan is to use a budget reconciliation bill to repeal and replace much of the law, but Republicans are still struggling to nail down its details and ensure it will have enough GOP support to pass.

President Trump has promised he will roll out an Obamacare alternative next month, and House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to hold committee markups on the plan, too.

But there’s broad skepticism that Republicans will be able to rally around one plan. Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted Thursday that repeal and replace is “not going to happen.

But they could pass vote after vote while Obama was there to veto it

These scumbags have nothing else in mind than re-election

Right now they are afraid to jump on Trump’s bandwagon because it might crash

 

Obama care in death spiral

 

When Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey announced recently that it’s $46 million in debt and shutting down, it became the 17th failed ObamaCare co-op since the Affordable Care Act launched three years ago.

Those failures – just six of the original 23 co-ops remain – have left hundreds of thousands of people scrambling for coverage.

Meanwhile, insurers claiming big losses are leaving some state exchanges — including Indiana University Health Plans, whose exit is expected to result in 27,000 Indiana residents losing ObamaCare plans in 2017. And companies still operating in the federal and state exchanges are raising premiums for next year.

Together, the developments are posing new challenges for Americans seeking affordable coverage, and show the highly touted overhaul of the country’s health care system is in some cases not yielding the savings President Obama once promised.

As a candidate on the campaign trail in 2008, Obama once said: “If you’ve got health insurance, we’re going to help that employer save $2,500 per family per year. … Those savings are going to be passed along to the workers.”

Nationally, though, premium hikes are expected to average 8 percent next year. Many insurance companies are seeking much more than that, for the exchange plans and those offered to employers.

Premera in Washington state is approved to charge 19 percent more next year. Rates across California will go up an average of 13 percent. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas is asking to raise premiums a stunning 60 percent.

Long-time critics of ObamaCare say they saw it coming.

“That basic promise, that it’s going to make health care more affordable, it’s not making health care more affordable,” said Avik Roy, an author and Republican adviser. “It’s making health care more expensive, especially for the uninsured.”

The problem remains a risk pool with too many sick people and not enough who are young and healthy. Also, federal backstop programs, aimed at helping companies that miscalculated how much to charge, are now expired. So insurance companies need higher premiums to cover payouts to doctors and hospitals.

The alternative is pulling out of health exchanges, which many companies have been doing. In recent months Aetna, United Health Care and several Blue Cross and Blue Shield subsidiaries have announced they will be leaving many of the exchanges in 2017.

“That’s going to be the future,” said Roger Stark of the Washington Policy Center in Washington State. “What we’re seeing here is the beginning of a death spiral as far as exchanges are concerned as more companies pull out.”

Who ever would have guessed?

Seriously, do you have to have a 6th grade mentality to be a socialist?

Who could have ever figured that those without money would use it and those with money would avoid paying

Absolute genius

One-Third of U.S. Will Have Only One Insurer Offering Obamacare Plans in 2017. Insurers exiting Obamacare exchanges due to unsustainable losses

https://media1.giphy.com/media/mUBleB7F6Y51e/200.gif

In 2017 there will be only one insurer selling health care plans in the Obamacare exchanges in one-third of the country, according to an analysis from Avalere experts.

Avalere, a health care consulting firm, compared the health insurance carriers that offered Obamacare coverage in 2016 to the carriers who have announced their intention to exit the exchanges in 2017, such as Aetna, Humana, UnitedHealthcare, and some co-ops.

The experts projected that 36 percent of exchange market rating regions in the United States in 2017 will have just one health insurance carrier, and 55 percent of regions will have two or fewer carriers. This is a significant increase from 2016, when only 4 percent of regions had one or fewer health insurance carriers and 33 percent of regions had two or fewer insurers.

Seven states—Alaska, Alabama, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming—will have only one health insurance carrier per rating region in 2017.

Experts at Avalere said there may be some sub-regional counties where no plans are offered in 2017. No insurer plans to sell coverage in Pinal Country, Arizona next year, according to a report from the Hill.

“Depending on where consumers live, their choice of insurance plans may decrease for 2017,” said Elizabeth Carpenter, senior vice president at Avalere. “Some exchange enrollees may need to choose another insurance plan in order to maintain coverage.”

Large health insurers have announced they are exiting the marketplaces because of unsustainable financial losses.

“Lower-than-expected enrollment, a high cost population, and troubled risk mitigation programs have led to decreased plan participation for 2017,” said Dan Mendelson, president of Avalere. “Congress and the Administration can choose to stabilize these markets and re-establish competition—but only through a consensus process that brings in a broader swatch of the uninsured.”

Why is it that all of these people can make such stupid choices and not expect stupid results?

Really, it is not rocket science to figure out that once insurance is available and subsidized that a veritable army of the walking wounded are going to come pouring in for treatment

It’s not the “Poor” people who aren’t covered

It is the working men and women who have slogged along for ten years with a bad knee or a hernia or bad disks

The ones who aren’t willing to ask for help or stiff someone for their care finally have access and are going to use every bit available

It’s also not rocket science to know that young people who are healthy and not in need of insurance are going to tell you to go fuck yourselves when you order them to get insured

Pay a fine?

Fuck you, I’ll work for cash

What did these lame brained morons who purportedly run this country expect?

In my county, the most prominent G.I doctor here  now charges $34,000 for a colonoscopy that the insurance companies are required to provide free of charge once a year

Before Obamacare he was charging $1800.00 for the procedure

They didn’t expect that?

Seriously, how stupid are these fools?

They didn’t expect all of the large chain employers to cut hours until they weren’t required to provide insurance?

Now, I don’t claim to be the smartest guy in the world but it is a big, big, problem when I am able to out think all of these people

Insurers warn Losses from ObamaCare are unsustainable

“Health insurance companies are amplifying their warnings about the financial sustainability of the ObamaCare marketplaces as they seek approval for premium increases next year.

Insurers say they are losing money on their ObamaCare plans at a rapid rate, and some have begun to talk about dropping out of the marketplaces altogether.

“Something has to give,” said Larry Levitt, an expert on the health law at the Kaiser Family Foundation. “Either insurers will drop out or insurers will raise premiums.”

While analysts expect the market to stabilize once premiums rise and more young, healthy people sign up, some observers have not ruled out the possibility of a collapse of the market, known in insurance parlance as a “death spiral.”

In the short term, there is a growing likelihood that insurers will push for substantial premium increases, creating a political problem for Democrats in an election year.

Insurers have been pounding the drum about problems with ObamaCare pricing.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association released a widely publicized report last month that said new enrollees under ObamaCare had 22 percent higher medical costs than people who received coverage from employers.

A report from McKinsey & Company found that in the individual market, which includes the ObamaCare marketplaces, insurers lost money in 41 states in 2014, and were only profitable in 9 states.

“We continue to have serious concerns about the sustainability of the public exchanges,” Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna, said in February.”

“While analysts expect the market to stabilize once premiums rise and more young, healthy people sign up, some observers have not ruled out the possibility of a collapse of the market, known in insurance parlance as a “death spiral.”

Now that is funny

They have no idea who these young and healthy people are

Every one of them I talk to has absolutely no intention of spending their money on insurance

They don’t really give a crap what .Gov wants them to do

I think they that they can just keep waiting and waiting for all of those sign up

Until the whole thing collapses

 

8 more Obamacare co-ops to fail

“Eight of the 11 remaining Obamacare health insurance co-ops appear likely to fail this year, according to an analysis of financial documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Twelve of the original 23 federally-financed co-ops have already collapsed. The co-op program was funded with $2.5 billion in 2010.

“In general, there’s not a turnaround in sight. The same problems that plagued them before are continuing,” Thomas P. Miller, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute who previously served as the senior health economist for the congressional Joint Economic Committee, told TheDCNF.

Obamacare advocates hoped the tax-funded non-profit co-ops would successfully compete with for-profit commercial insurance companies and drive down healthcare costs and eventually become permanent fixtures in the marketplace.

State insurance regulators are already liquidating in the 12 states where the co-ops already have closed their doors.

In some states like New York, hospitals and doctors are facing hundreds of millions in losses that will not be covered by the assets of the failed co-op, Health Republic of New York.”

The 8 Obamacare Co-Ops Most Likely To Fail This Year

Government intervention in the marketplace always works out so well

They just cannot be convinced that regulation is the problem not the solution

 

Funding for Shaylyn

So this is where it all started

I was at work on Oct. 21st when I got a call from my wife

I was doing irrigation service right around the corner from home (Thank God) and it was the call that no man ever wants to get

Her son who was 38 had just been killed in a high speed car accident outside of Tampa

I say her son because even though we have been married for 26 Yrs. I did very little raising of him

But anyway, that was the start

Then, the week before Christmas our Daughter Shaylyn who is 36 calls to inform my wife that she has adrenal cancer

Bear in mind that she has 2 children and just lost her brother

I say ours because even though she is not my blood, I have raised her since age 8 as my daughter

Anyway, she also has tumors on her kidneys and spots on her liver that are most likely also tumors

She was hospitalized for 2 weeks because her blood pressure was out of control and she was seen by a specialist

She was supposed to have laproscopic surgery to have the tumors removed immediately

That was weeks ago

Unfortunately she is uninsured and medically needy and no doctor will touch her

She will have to wait until an endocrine surgeon  decides to donate his charity

Or not

I live in Florida in a county that has the highest unemployment rate in the state and own a business that has been drained over the past 6 yrs. to nothing

We as a family are in dire straights

Without treatment Shay is destined for a short life with a lot of suffering

I don’t know if it is pride or denial but she will not quit working to go on disabilty

And at this point the process is probably too long anyway

The surgery may or may not save her

I don’t even know

To tell you truthfully I don’t even know what it costs

But I can’t sit and do nothing

I haven’t asked her approval yet and don’t really care

I have a link below for paypal to donate

I don’t know how to get a button so it is just a link

I don’t use paypal for anything other than buying so any funds donated will be earmarked

Even if you don’t donate I would sure appreciate you passing this on

If anyone needs my contact info to verify the the veracity of this leave me a comment and I will send it to you

 

https://www.paypal.me/FundsforShay

Update: Here is a go fund me link if paypal doesn’t work: gofundme.com/p5kymvxe

Update 1-23: Apparently there is an intermittent problem with the pay pal link. If it does not work, my email is Eatgrueldog@yahoo.com. Leave me a comment if you need USPS. I no longer care if I am anonymous. If you don’t have paypal send me your email and paypal can invoice you.

Update: I have been trying to individually thank those that have donated but my e-mail keeps screwing up. If for some reason I don’t get back to you know that what you did was greatly appreciated and you have my most heartfelt thanks.

Update : Shay found out about this site an hour or so ago and was ecstatic that people were helping her out. So far, minus snail mail, $ 1545.00 has been raised. I thank you all. I now have a plan since an insurance agent left me a comment and contacted me. Instead of some crazy some, I am after enough to get her insured and pay her deductible.

I am still waiting on numbers and will post them when I have them. So far it is looking like $420.00 a month and a $1600.00 deductible.

Even if another dime doesn’t roll in, I am eternally grateful to those that have found the kindness to help us out. One way or another we will make it work.

Update: I do have an asset if anyone is interested in land in Florida

I have an 80′ X 120′ lot on a 6 mi. long island in the swamp with a delapitated mobile on it

I will sell it for half the value it is listed as or for whatever

The law and loss of moral authority

I thought it would be timely to re-post this bearing in mind the recent SCOTUS decision. We are now entering the era of the Reichstag fire and the rubber stamp court will rule , not by what is written into law, but instead by what they desire.

I know that some of you will be inclined to look to the recent second amendment rulings to say that it just isn’t so…. but it is.

Remember the first Obamacare ruling? Congress has the power to tax? Elections have consequences?

Well , a lot of people haven’t realized it, but that ruling gives the tyrants unbridled authority to tax anything, anywhere.

Sure it is legal to own a gun, you just have to pay a $5000.00 a year tax, kind of like the $200.00 tax stamp on silencers.

We have now officially been fundamentally transformed

Anyway, I have work to do so I leave you with the below.

Happy Friday everybody

The law and loss of moral authority

To put our current legal situation into context you have to ask one basic question; what is law? Is law as we have been lead to believe, the codification of statutes defining what is illegal or not? Or is there some inherent property of moral righteousness that must exist for that law to have force?

I will argue that there is a moral component of law that must be present to make the system of law work. I am, of course, aware that there are many places that laws are passed that have no moral basis at all. There are dictatorships around the world that oppress their peoples and use their codified statutes to imprison and kill any who dissent.

The ultimate example of this is was the Nazi Germany government who made it legal to kill Jews. It was not only legal, but a system of laws was implemented to guide their extermination. But those laws, even though written out with penalties for those who did not follow them by the legislature, were illegal.

It is a basic component of the human being to know right from wrong. It is the reason that human beings set up laws in the first place. They are set up to make sure that innocents are not victimized by the predacious in our societies. In virtually every place that a human society exists, whether on a group, tribal or civilization level, there are always laws that govern behavior. Even those that break the laws have a sense of righteousness. In prison populations, if the prisoners feel that they are being treated in a fair and just manner they will comply with the rules and follow the system. Take away that feeling of just and fair treatment and prison riots and mayhem ensues. The prisoners realize that they have broken the law and when treated humanely will accept their punishment for the most part. The prisoners know that they have committed a wrong and they knew the possible penalty beforehand and knew what they risked. If torture, mal-treatment and other injuries are added to the punishment then a situation of self-righteousness is set up. The only way to control a prison population under those circumstances is with solitary confinement and complete isolation; if left to exist within prison society it would quickly conflagrate into confrontation.

In places where law exists without any moral authority there is always rebellion brewing just under the surface of society. The dictators and bureaucracies of these societies must rule with an iron fist because they know that one moment of slackness will have them swept from power and executed or exiled. Every single individual who is subject to these laws knows that they are illegal. How can they be illegal if they are written into law you might ask; Is that not the definition of law?

My argument is that it is the moral component of the law that is essential for it to work. It has nothing to with writing a statute and everything to do with human nature. We are after all the ones who create the laws, then write them and in the end follow them. It is at the very core of our nature to organize and codify law because we are innately social by nature and always end up forming some type of society that must have rules. It is also our own feeling of self-righteousness that makes us create the laws.

Certain things are innately wrong and one person should not be able to do this or that to another, and that is the basic creator of law. Laws don’t start out as regulations to govern society. They start out as basic rules of moral behavior; don’t steal from those in our community, don’t kill anyone and don’t try to take my wife. It is this same sense of self-righteousness that drives us to rebel when we know that a law is being applied without any righteous basis.

Take traffic laws for an example. Someone is driving down the highway when they suddenly see blue lights in the rearview. They were oblivious to their speed, lost in thought, and look down at the speedometer and see that they are doing 70 M.P.H. When the cop walks up and gives them a speeding ticket for doing 70 M.P.H. in a 50 M.P.H zone, there is little room for self-righteousness. Most people knowing that they broke the law, and one enacted for public safety, will accept the ticket and pay it without even showing up in court. The next example is the opposite.

Someone is rolling down the highway and the only difference in the scenario is that when they look down they see that they are only doing 45 M.P.H. They continue on for a while, waiting for the cop to go around them. When they eventually pull over, part of it is curiosity as to why he would be stopping them. In this case when a 70 M.P.H. ticket is handed out the reaction is going to be entirely different. That person will go to court. In addition to going to court, if not resolved there, they will spend large amounts of time and money to right the injustice. They will actually spend time and money far out of proportion to the actual injustice that happened because they are self-righteous.

Now imagine that the law was written like this: If you are driving down the highway you can be pulled over and issued a speeding ticket at any time no matter what your speed was. That is the point where the law goes against human nature. People would naturally begin to rebel against it because of its inherent injustice. In the second case it is not only that person’s right to rebel against the law, but also their moral obligation. They have a moral obligation to rebel because they should be seeking to re-establish moral law. If they live in human society then moral law, compatible with human nature should be the rule. If this is not the case, then they are being set up to have very bad things happen.

The Jews in Nazi Germany also had a moral obligation to fight and for the most part they did not (With the notable and heroic exception of the Warsaw ghetto and a few others) and were led to their slaughter. They had a moral obligation not just to themselves, but to their fellow Jews and compatriots. They were obligated to save their children, their mothers and fathers and other humans and in the end, for the most part did not.

Instead they followed the laws of Nazi Germany. (Just as the German soldiers at the Nuremberg trials did) They agreed to be registered because to not do so would be breaking the law. They showed up in groups to be transported away because to not do so would be breaking the law. They gave up their goods and businesses and money because not to do so would be breaking the law. There were, of course, severe penalties for breaking the law such as being imprisoned or just disappearing into the night and that drove most to comply.

I know that faith also played a part for many and I am not judging their actions or inaction. I am simply stating the results of what happened by their following the law and putting forward the fact that we are all morally obligated to act when law becomes illegal or immoral.

When law has lost its moral authority and becomes nothing more than something punitive to arbitrarily punish enemies then it is not true law; or at least not true to human nature , by which we all act. In that case all the law becomes is a fear of retribution. No one cares if they break the law for they feel no guilt about doing so and we humans, for the most part, are moral beings. Personally I don’t rob people because it is against the law. I don’t rob people because of the fact that it is morally wrong and I have no desire to violently take from another to gain wealth. I will die before I take the sustenance of another to live.

Once the moral component of law is removed only fear of punishment remains. If someone follows the law it is only because they don’t want to be fined or imprisoned; It I not because they have a moral imperative. But fear only goes so far; when the law becomes illegal its moral authority is transferred to those against whom it is used. They now have righteousness on their side and righteousness has a way of cancelling out fear.

Counter-intuitively, the more injustice that is piled on the more it is met with resistance. The IRA is an excellent example. By the 1960’s their membership was flagging and their armed struggle against the British was at very low ebb. That all changed on bloody Sunday when British troops opened fire into a crowd of demonstrators and killed and wounded a number of them. Instead of being frightened by this, they were outraged and active resistance against them doubled. A vicious cycle was started as the British escalated their actions in response to the increase in attacks and therefore caused even more.

The result of the British crackdown was the highest membership in the IRA in history and the start of a real shooting war. The level of violence escalated to a point never seen before and eventually drove the Brits to sue for peace. The danger of enrolling in the outlawed organization was more than offset by the sense of self-righteous outrage that was generated by the deaths and military lock down of entire neighborhoods. When one joined the IRA it was not a matter of if you would die or be imprisoned, but rather when. Still, even knowing what the outcome would be the ranks of the IRA swelled to enormous numbers. When the British military began a covert assassination program to kill suspected IRA members and affiliates, instead of instilling fear it just added to the sense of outrage and drove more to join and fight.

It was the (Legal) injustice of what was being done that gave the moral righteousness to the IRA and drove them to war. I bring this all up because we are now, in our own society, entering an era of legal lawlessness. We will be forced to make choices about how we respond when confronted with these laws. From the patriot act to the NSA spying, the NDAA authorization of indefinite detention, the IRS and the DOJ it is becoming clear that we are living in an increasingly lawless society.

The lawlessness is not on the part of the people, but rather on the part of those writing the law. The irony is that as the laws become more illegitimate the numbers of them are increasing exponentially. There are already so many federal laws on the books that at any given time any given individual is guilty of a crime. We have now become beholden to the very institutions that are supposed to be serving us as a society. Instead of serving us, the people, they now serve the bureaucracy instead. The bureaucracy and the institutions thereof have become the center of law giving rather than we as citizens. The law, rather than protecting us has become an instrument to protect the bureaucracy and punish those who disagree with it.

We have come to the point where our laws are becoming as corrupt as any given banana republic and if we do not actually want to become one, then we need to make a stand and say enough is enough. I am sure that while I have been writing this that I have committed at least three crimes; either by what I have written or done or thought or possibly what type of lighting I used. Do I care? No not at all. My sense of self- righteous indignation has grown to the point that I have no fear. I have no fear of death or imprisonment. The level of outrage has grown in me to the point that I will go to war.

Will they put me in prison? Go ahead lock me up with a captive audience and let me speak the truth to them; I will leave with an army of self-righteous individuals. Of course the speaking of this truth is illegal in prison, but at this point what is law? We all have hard choices coming up in the future; choices that could affect the rest of our lives and need to decide how to act. In the end how we act is going to be influenced by how the legal system acts. Let me end this with a question: If you receive a letter from the IRS informing you that you are subject to an audit, is your hard drive going to crash? I know that mine is.

Congress comitted fraud to avoid Ovomitcare

“Congress engaged in outright fraud to escape a requirement that everyone on Capitol Hill buy individual health insurance through the Affordable Care Act, and the White House played along, says a government watchdog who calls the congressional Obamacare dodge an under-reported scandal.

The Obama administration let Congress, which employs thousands of people, classify itself as a small business so that lawmakers and hill employees could keep heavily subsidized, federally funded coverage that would not have been available to them as individuals, Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, told “MidPoint” host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV on Monday.”

“This is quite literal fraud,” said Kerpen. “These are documents, formal documents, that were filed with the D.C. health exchange — the Obamacare exchange in the District of Columba — certifying that the House of Representatives only has 45 employees and the United States Senate also only has 45 employees.

“These are signed under penalty of perjury, and since they were signed, 13,700 people have signed up for [coverage in] the supposed ‘small businesses’ with 90 total employees,” he said. “So, this is pretty blatant fraud here on the part of Congress.”

Cheese eating surrender monkeys! Republicans to replace Obamacare subsidies if SCOTUS rules them illegal.

“Reuters) – If the U.S. Supreme Court blows up the tax subsidies at the heart of Obamacare in June, Republicans hope to deliver on their promise to offer an alternative healthcare plan.

But key parts of it may resemble the one President Barack Obama delivered five years ago in the Affordable Care Act, partly reflecting Republican concerns that they could pay a political price if insurance subsidies are yanked from millions of Americans later this year.

Two front-running Republican options at an early stage in Congress include a refundable tax credit that experts say is virtually the same thing as the Obamacare tax subsidy being challenged before the Supreme Court. Republicans deny that their ideas are tantamount to “Obamacare Lite” but acknowledge they will need bipartisan support for their plans to stand any chance of avoiding an Obama veto.

“It’s not going to be like Obamacare, in my opinion,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, whose plan includes a refundable tax credit for low-and middle-income Americans.

“It’s not a literal subsidy, it’s a recognition that they should have this credit.”

We are so screwed.

The republicans are even worse than the french; they surrender even when they win.

Chuck Schumer: Democrats erred by passing Obamacare

From: The Hill

Democrats made a strategic mistake by passing the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third-ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, said Tuesday.

Schumer says Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in the 2008 elections, a Democratic landslide, by focusing on healthcare reform instead of legislation to boost the middle class.

“After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus,” he said in a speech at the National Press Club.

He said the plight of uninsured Americans caused by “unfair insurance company practices” needed to be addressed, but it wasn’t the change that people wanted when they elected Barack Obama as president.

“Americans were crying out for an end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs; not for changes in their healthcare,” he said.

He noted that 85 percent of all Americans got their healthcare from either the government, through Medicare or Medicaid, or through an employer.

“So when Democrats focused on healthcare, the average middle class person thought, ‘the Democrats are not paying enough attention to me,’ ” he said.

Schumer’s concession is a striking change of tone from what he said shortly after the passage of the healthcare law, when he predicted that ObamaCare would turn out to be a strong political issue for his party.

“I predict … by November those who voted for healthcare will find it an asset, those who voted against it will find it a liability,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in March 2010.

A slew of Senate Democrats, including Blanche Lincoln (Ark.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Kay Hagan (N.C.) and Mark Udall (Colo.), who voted for the bill, however, ended up losing in 2010 or 2014. Republicans attacked them constantly for voting for ObamaCare, an attack that became more potent after the law’s error-prone rollout.

On Tuesday, Schumer said that behind the scenes, he told other Democratic Party leaders that they should have focused on jobs and the economy instead of ObamaCare.

Ya’ think Chucky? You arrogant prick. Now that half the country is pissed at your party and about a 1/4 is ready to go to war, you talk back your earlier points.

It goes to show that you had awareness of the situation then, but were too arrogant to care about anything other than your socialist agenda.

You seem to forget your earlier position but we haven’t.

Does anyone smell some more shellacking coming for the almighty party of Govt. control? I think Herr Schumer does.

Don’t worry Chuck, we have a light pole with your name on it.

Obamacare fail : Less than 4 million newly insured

http://dailysignal.com/2014/06/24/obamacare-exchanges-disappointing/

The administration expected 26 million newly insured and only ended up with less than 4 million. It would seem that the dear leaders faithful minions have balked at being ordered to buy a product by the government. I guessed they missed the fact that deep down inside a lot of us are still Americans. We still believe that we run the government and not the other way around.  There is still residing in us the spirit that when push comes to shove, we will bite our nose off to spite our face. Oh yeah, then we will spit it at you.     You know I broke my hand and finger a while back. I did it really good and knocked one of my fingers right off the knuckle. I got it out of bondage last Monday and by Wednesday night I am pretty sure that I broke it again. Do I have insurance? Hell no. I man up and pay the bill. So far I am about $400.00 in with getting it set, Xrays and check ups.    I don’t care about the money, right now it is a matter of principle. I am already spending money to fight these bastards so why not a few bucks more?   So I might risk my life if I get a major illness; Big deal, there is a good chance that I might be risking my life here shortly anyway. I really am a dumb ass at times. I am the only guy I know that runs TO the sound of gunfire.

Cracks beginning to appear? HHS head says Obamacare sign up deadline cannot be moved. Enrollment deadline still March 31

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/hhs-we-lack-statutory-authority-extend-obamacares-open-enrollment-period_784621.html

On a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, officials at the Department of Health and Human Services insisted that March 31 is the firm deadline to sign up for Obamacare. “We have no plans to extend the open enrollment period,” HHS official Julie Bataille said. “In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.”

What’s up with that? Did someone decide to flout the authority of the dear leader and remind him that the law is the law? Did someone finally grow a pair of balls and decide to resist? Maybe;  I guess we will see if this is getting set up for a court battle. (Think classic Batman narration) Find out on the next episode.

Natural law vs. the legal system

I recently responded to an article entitled “Is the ACA legal?”. I know that my response sounds a little bitchy, but it wasn’t intended. It is just one of those things that can happen on a Wednesday morning. It wasn’t that his question irritated me, it is just irritation at the whole situation in general. I am a little lazy this morn also, so instead of starting fresh I have pasted the response below and will attempt to expound on the idea.

“Using the word legal is a joke.(No offense intended) When the laws of a nation are subverted there are many things that are “Legal”. If they ban guns or free speech and it is upheld by the SCOTUS it becomes “Legal” even while being illegitimate. If Madison’s “Tyranny of the majority” comes to fruition then the will imposed on the minority will be “Legal”. According to the ruling that robert’s (Sic) made congress can tax us for anything as a type of penalty. We can be required to buy a car or a toaster or any other nonsense and be taxed if we don’t. Stimulus anyone? Our rights and freedoms are not granted by legality and when illegitimate laws are passed they subvert natural law.”

The whole concept of natural law is bound up in the idea that some things are inherently right and wrong and are built into our nature, independent of political order, society or nation-state. When legal systems come into a state of conflict with natural law a conundrum is created that will invariably end with some type of contention.    It is often stated that the constitution guarantees our rights but that is a mistaken perception. The constitution only codifies our natural rights and spells them out as a guideline for the government.   As a human I have a right to life. I have the right to defend myself. I have a right to be free. I have the right to speak as I please. I have the right to be unencumbered by tyranny.    The government claims that they are the protector of these rights because they are in the constitution, when in fact they were codified to protect us from the government. The government (SCOTUS) defines daily what my freedoms and rights are by their rulings on the legality of matters that pertain to them. Their rulings though, have no bearing on my actual  natural rights regardless of what they rule.   Thomas Jefferson saw the potential for this abuse after the SCOTUS usurped the power of judicial review ( Ruling on the constitutionality of matters) and wrote in 1820    “You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.”     What the end all of this game is that in order to keep my natural rights that were “Endowed” on me, I may have to  become a criminal in the eyes of the law. I have a right to freedom, but in order to insure that right I may become a criminal and be imprisoned.     Is that legal?  In the end I don’t care about the legality of the matter. If you make me a criminal I can only respond as Jesus did when asked if he was the KIng of the Jews “You have said it”.   Take that as you will.

Rankings released by YouGov/Economist show that Ronald Reagan is viewed as the greatest president of the last 100 years, while Obama is viewed as the “biggest failure.”

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/11/26/Presidential-Poll-Reagan-The-Best-Obama-The-Worst-In-Last-100-Years

Here is a link to the actual poll.    http://today.yougov.com/news/2013/11/22/poll-results-presidents/  37% consider Obama a failure which is 5 points higher than Bush. Looks like people are finally catching on.    Happy thanksgiving everyone and I am gone for the holiday.

Colorado healthcare exchange signs up only 6001, may go O-broke

http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_24593942/board-strife-colorado-exchange-far-behind-projected-enrollment

This is what happens when you attempt to force people to buy a product.

“The midlevel scenario for November was 20,186 members, and the highest projection 30,944 members.

As federal startup grants taper off under Obamacare funding, the exchange is meant to pay for itself with per-member charges on the private insurance companies offering policies. It needs 136,300 enrollees in 2014 to raise $6.5 million of its $51.4 million expenses.”

Fuck you and your fine.

Allen West calls for impeachment and civil disobedience

http://allenbwest.com/2013/11/breach-oath-time-impeach/#c4R02K4pOitihAwC.99

I am such a racist that I just love the hell out of Allen West. Now this man knows how to go off on an anti Obama rant.  Bite me, Oprah…

The time has come to stop dancing around the word “impeachment.”

I just landed in one of the most politically corrupt cities in America: Chicago. It is the home of “Rules for Radicals” author Saul Alinsky as well as the most corrupt, lying, radical president this country will ever know, Barack Hussein Obama.

Clearly, the Rule of Law is not applicable in Obama’s world, it’s just a framework which he feels he can fundamentally transform at his will. But America does not live by imperial edict granted from on high by his highness. Heck, that’s why we had a revolution in the first place.

In Boston, Obama said these plans were junk and the insurance companies were bad apples. His own henchwoman, HHS Secretary Sebelius issued a decree making these plans non-compliant. But now the Emperor waves his hand and presto change-o, they are in compliance — in other words our Dear Leader is granting his permission.

This man is a manipulative liar. His arrogance is beyond comprehension. He has, in true Alinsky-esque fashion, picked the individual insurance market to demonize and set up the industry for blame.

Obama has once again demonstrated his disdain for America, Americans, and our Constitution. I say now is the time for good ol’ fashioned American civil disobedience. From today, let no one sign up for Obamacare. It’s not a law, just the bidding of a narcissistic megalomaniac.

If Americans do not finally see the arrogant lawlessness of this person who no longer holds regard for the Office of the Presidency, then God help us, for He shall certainly not bless us. What more do people need to see and endure? This disgraceful era must now end.

The president is in violation of his oath and yes, he should be removed from office by impeachment. Let the call ring across the land from sea to shining sea.
