Obamacare: deconstructed

Two extremely important videos to watch (thanks Geeeez) regarding the facts and fallacies of Obamacare.

The second video has Paul Ryan shredding Obamacare in a mere six minutes.

Yet Obamacare was thrust through literally in the dead of night, on a weekend, with purely partisan support.  Not even one Republican — despite the plethora of RINOs within — voted for Obamacare.

Obamacare killed individual and private plans this year.  In 2014 my health insurance coverage will get killed, via my employer.

This is perfectly in keeping with Mr Obama’s plan to place the US government into the Single Payer framework, enabling the government to control over 1/6th of the entire economy.

He’s going to “Cloward-Piven” the entire nation, starting with healthcare first.

Obama Off With Their Coverage

 

Information about Obamacare:

Obama’s approval ratings are at 37%.

When 5 million Americans have lost their doctors and their plans, Americans are not amused.  That small white letter arrived in numerous households.

Further, another promise from Mr Obama:

Lowering the premiums per family, $2,500 per year. A promise broken again.

Recently, some polling numbers:

- 55% disapprove of the way Mr Obama is handling his job;
- 52% have an unfavorable impression of Mr Obama;
- 57% oppose Obamacare;
- 65% oppose the individual mandate;
- 71% want to delay the Affordable Care Act;

These numbers are from the Washington Post-ABC News poll, November 14th – 17th.

Gallup then weighs in, November 7th to 10th:

“Is the government responsible for healthcare?”

NO  = 56%
YES = 42%

Additionally, the New York Post is reporting that the Census Bureau may have fabricated unemployment figures during the last presidential election.  As in: purposely pulling those numbers down.  If the unemployment numbers were deliberately manipulated for an election, there should be major political consequences, possibly even criminal consequences.

Up to a HUNDRED MILLION insurance policies could be canceled between now and next year.  Those covered by employers will be SACRIFICED in 2014.  Like ME.  The population of the United States is, by the way, 310 million.

That means: a THIRD of Americans will have their healthcare slaughtered.

No repercussions?

Obamacare: what next?

ObamaKare 5Here, Megyn Kelly interviews Brit Hume:

“What we’re discovering is that buying insurance is a little more complicated than we thought.”

– Barack Hussein Obama

Really?

This is the same man declared to be the smartest, most insightful person in politics today?  The man whose legacy, as he wishes, is Obamacare?  And because it’s his “showpiece” we’re to believe he had no idea that Americans would lose their coverage?  We’re to believe he had no idea how “complicated” is the purchase of health insurance?  Who had no idea the website was tanking because it had a political “go” date instead of an “it’s ready” date?

This is the same man who demanded insurance carriers conform to Obamacare, and now demands the insurance carriers not conform to Obamacare.  The same man who can, by dint of a verbal decree, change the ACA as he wishes, at the drop of a hat.

This is the same man who proclaimed that the insurance policies you once had were crap, were junk, were harmful, were dangerous — and now, wants you to have those same policies BACK?  Does anyone think that insurance carriers are focused and/or concerned about retrograding?  Does anyone think that insurance carriers can change the policies, in 30 days, that it took them 3.5 years to re-craft?

What the hell?

“When your enemy is on fire, don’t just stand around and watch, throw some gasoline on him.” ~ Andrea Tantaros on The Five

And with that, there you go.

A naked takeover of 1/6th of the entire national US economy at the behest of all the Demorats and none of the Republicans.

Obamacare came by Dictatorial Fiat, then and now.  Mr Obama has NO Constitutional authority to make ANY of these changes.

Obama’s sycophants think there’s still really nothing very much wrong.  Check Debbie Wasserman Schultz here.

I wrap up today’s insanity with the comment from another insane person, Nancy Pelosi, who told us we had to pass the ACA so we could know what was in it.  Pelosi said “I’ve never met anyone who liked their insurance plan.”

Of course.  That’s certainly justification for forcing, now, millions of Americans off their current health plans.

I could never, in a thousand years, have written fiction like this.  Except that it’s not fiction.  It’s happening.

Senate passes internet sales tax bill amid opposition from conservatives

Obama, You didn't earn thatFrom the UK Guardian:

Bill to overturn 1992 court decision has support of Obama, Amazon and Walmart – but its future in the House is uncertain

The US Senate on Monday passed a bill aimed at ending tax-free shopping on the internet but the move looks set to face fierce opposition before it becomes law.

The Marketplace Fairness Act, which has cross-party supporter and the backing of powerful retailers, would give states the power to require retailers with sales over $1m to collect state and local sales taxes for online purchases.

The bill has the support of president Barack Obama the majority of senators including Republican John McCain but Marco Rubio, seen a potential Republican presidential hopeful, and Rand Paul both voted against the bill.

The bill passed the Senate by 70 votes to 24 but faces a second test in the House of Representatives where internet retailers and conservatives are already lobbying against the tax. House leaders have yet to schedule hearings or votes on their version of the measure.

The legislation would overturn a 1992 supreme court ruling that said a state could not force a retailer to collect sales tax unless the retailer had a physical presence in the state.

Can you imagine being a retailer, following an actual passage of this bill, and having to comply with the separate tax codes of every state and every region?

Because, after all, if you’re a business owner, you simply didn’t build it.  Everyone but you built your business.

The following Republicans voted yea on the internet tax: Sessions & Shelby (AL), McCain (AZ), Chambliss & Isakson (GA), Crapo & Risch (ID), Coats (IN), Grassley (IA), Collins (ME), Cochran & Wicker (MS), Blunt (MO), Fischer & Johanns (NE), Hoeven (ND), Portman (OH), Thune (SD), Alexander & Corker (TN), Enzi (WY).

The following Republicans voted nay: Flake (AZ), Rubio (FL), Kirk (IL), Roberts (KS), McConnell & Paul (KY), Vitter (LA), Heller (NV), Ayotte (NH), Coburn & Inhofe (OK), Toomey (PA), Cruz (TX), Hatch & Lee (UT), Johnson (WI), and Barrasso (WY).

Remember them.

An excellent article, “Why Barack Obama hates small business” is here.

 

 

Mikulski’s ‘Paycheck Fairness Act’ Would Allow Employees to Discuss Salaries

Socialist AmericaThe Private sector just took one more step towards Socialism and the “much hated” Public sector.

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)- A ‘Paycheck Fairness Act’ introduced in Congress last week would require employers to show pay disparity is related to job-performance and prohibit employer retaliation for sharing salary information with coworkers.

Senator Barbara A. Mikulski and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, both Democrats, said their legislation is aimed at closing the pay gap between men and women and would also address loopholes in the 1963 Equal Pay Act.

The phrase in the private sector, “you are what you negotiate,” would soon go away in Maryland.  And an employer having the ability to pay a worker who was much more productive than another worker across gender and sexual lines would also go away — meaning the ability to reward productivity, creativity and incentive would also disappear.

Which is, of course, what “fairness” is all about.  Because if you dislike the Public sector for its efficiency, you’ll soon enjoy said efficiency in the Private world.

Another way of dumbing and numbing down the America you used to recognize.
