Repealing Obamacare, Maybe?

The greatest lie of the century might be about to be repealed. Even if not by law, Obamacare is collapsing in on itself. More and more insurers are pulling out of State’s, and doctors are refusing new patients.  Obama and the democrats are fully responsible for creating this nightmare.  It was designed to fail to usher in a European single payer government run model.  Make no mistake, letting the government make your health decision means you don’t get the care you need.  You get what they decide is best for you, even if it kills you.

I was almost losing hope that this socialist monstrosity known as Obamacare would never be repealed and replaced.  Yet, we still have to get this through the Senate, and several Senate jackasses have threatened to spoil everything to stroke their egos.  We shall soon see if they screw the American people and keep Obamacare in perpetuity.  If that happens, then a great chunk of American freedoms, American Ingenuity and American Innovation goes away for good. Incentive and invention will be replaced with government intervention.

Despite the successful House vote, there were several Republicans that voted against the AHCA, or the healthcare reform act.  The reasons vary, but most were spooked by the Fake News Media that hordes of Americans would lose their healthcare.  News Flash!  Hordes of Americans are already losing their healthcare under Obamacare.  They either have no insurer to insure them, or they cannot afford the premiums and the deductibles.  Obamacare was designed to fail by making people pay for stuff they don’t need.  That’s why it’s unaffordable!

The best part of the bill was the Draconian Obamacare taxes that were abolished. The American Health Care Act (HR 1628) passed by the House today reduces taxes on the American people by over $1 trillion. The bill abolishes the following taxes imposed by Obama and the Democrat party in 2010 as part of Obamacare:

-Abolishes the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year.

-Abolishes the Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax. Together with repeal of the Individual Mandate Tax repeal this is a $270 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts. This is a $6 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Flexible Spending Account tax on 30 million Americans. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Chronic Care Tax on 10 million Americans with high out of pocket medical expenses. This is a $126 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s HSA withdrawal tax. This is a $100 million tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s 10% excise tax on small businesses with indoor tanning services. This is a $600 million tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare health insurance tax. This is a $145 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare 3.8% surtax on investment income. This is a $172 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare medical device tax. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on prescription medicine. This is a $28 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on retiree prescription drug coverage. This is a $2 billion tax cut.

It should be noted that Obama repeatedly said about his signature legislative lie that it would not raise taxes, and it would lower healthcare premiums by $2,500 dollars per family per year.  Instead, it raised rate for the average family to $12,000 a year and made deductibles $6,000 before insurance would even kick in.  Then, to add insult to injury, the audacity of Obama’s ego doubled down and he said, “If you like your Doctor, you can keep your Doctor. If you like your Insurance, you can keep your Insurance. Period!”

The bill doesn’t entirely repeal Obamacare, but it does disable it from doing further damage to the healthcare system and the economy.  It might even start rebuilding the healthcare markets where competition and innovation would return.  Free market incentives would allow choice over a one-size-fits-all government plan.  Thus lowering costs, providing more choice and better coverage.

Over the eight years, the Liar in Chief, tinkered and toyed with Obamacare.  Amending and adding to it, making it more difficult to repeal.  To be fair, the Republicans should have had a repeal and replace plan in place, but they didn’t.  They were to busy being the opposition party that they forgot how to govern.  That will probably cost us the House and Senate and our chances forever to return back to Constitutional order.  If that happens, then prepare for a socialist government and the loss of individual freedoms.  The leftist democrats wet dream of becoming like North Korea will have finally arrived.  President Ronald Reagan’s prediction of a 1,000 years of darkness will have come true.  If that sounds depressing…..

Congratulations! You’re Fat!

fat

The letter from the doctor’s office said.  Well, sorta.  The letter actually said that I was selected to participate in a 7 month pilot project to “Improve Individual and Community BMI (Body Mass Index).  The idea is to shame people into loosing weight by asking patients to keep a record of their weight.

Didn’t I read someplace that BMI calculations are inaccurate, and it is a misleading measurement of a person’s fatness?  Yes, of all places, NPR, in 2006, published an article called “Top 10 Reasons Why The BMI is Bogus

  1. The person who dreamed up the BMI said explicitly that it could not and should not be used to indicate the level of fatness in an individual.
  2. It is scientifically nonsensical.
  3. It is physiologically wrong.
  4. It gets the logic wrong.
  5. It’s bad statistics.
  6. It is lying by scientific authority.
  7. It suggests there are distinct categories of underweight, ideal, overweight and obese, with sharp boundaries that hinge on a decimal place.
  8. It makes the more cynical members of society suspect that the medical insurance industry lobbies for the continued use of the BMI to keep their profits high.
  9. Continued reliance on the BMI means doctors don’t feel the need to use one of the more scientifically sound methods that are available to measure obesity levels.
  10. It embarrasses the U.S.

It does more than embarrass a person, BMI has been used to publicly shame school children.  Imagine what the child must feel like when they receive a letter from their school saying that they are too fat?  Especially young girls that might be self conscience about their weight and image.  What if they turn to either anorexia or bulimia?  They could damage their health by trying to stay thin, and they could even kill themselves.

What about the athlete that has larger muscle mass versus the couch potato gamer that gets no exercise?  The problem with BMI, and some adult logic, is that it is more about fat between the ears, than fat in the rears.

The NPR article goes on the say; “The BMI was introduced in the early 19th century by a Belgian named Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet. He was a mathematician, not a physician. He produced the formula to give a quick and easy way to measure the degree of obesity of the general population to assist the government in allocating resources. In other words, it is a 200-year-old hack.”

But wait, we are also told that 1 in 5 children are hungry.  That there are 50 million Americans that go to bed hungry every night.  How can this be true?  The poor have many choices available to them; SNAP benefits, EBT benefits, Free School lunches, Food Banks, religious charitable organizations, and many more State and Federal programs to help feed the poor and low income people.

Forbes attempts to explain:  “Are One In Five American Children Hungry?

First, studies of poor households show that almost half own their own homes, three quarters own a car, and almost all have a color television. The American poor seem to have money for things other than food for their children, if the one-in-five statistic is to be believed.
Second, advocacy groups (with Michelle Obama as a leading spokesperson) now appear to have decided that the problem is childhood obesity, not hunger. The children, especially of the poor, are not going to bed hungry. They are eating too much of the wrong foods.
Third, if the one-in-five statistic is correct, the public food stamps and school free lunch programs must be colossal failures.  Despite their wide reach into poor communities, they apparently leave more than thirty percent of school children “struggling with hunger.”

Maybe people just wanna eat the food they like?  When Food Tyrants like Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg decide to restrict your access to certain food, with the reasoning that, “we’re doing this for your own good“, you have to ask, who made them the food police?

In this day and age, we are lucky to live in such abundance.  Walk into any grocery store and there will be in excess of 50,000 products to choose from.  There are more choices now than there ever were before.  However, there are some Food Nazis that will try and govern your choices by creating a false food crisis.  They will try and ban foods based on what they perceive as not being healthy enough for you.

Remember when the Food Nazis tried to ban Foie Gras?  A centuries old practice of feeding ducks to fatten their livers using boiled corn and fat.  The mixture was then piped down the ducks throats filling their stomachs.  Animal rights kooks claimed the practice was cruel and inhumane.  Yet, domesticated ducks would gladly consume the food voluntarily.  Ducks would stand in line waiting for the farmer to feed them.  Food Nazis have always been trying to control what you can and cannot eat.  Food Nazis sense of morality is always anti-human.  The Food Nazis claim the world is over-populated and there are not enough resources to sustain the population.  If Food Nazis had their way, people would have to be eliminated to save the planet.

These are the same people that believe in global warming and condemn you as a flat earther if you do not believe in their kooky causes.  It’s always the humans fault for the weather changing.

Like I said earlier, it not so much about the body fat, but more about the fat between the extremists ears.

The Evidence Is In, They Lied!

wordie3

Is video evidence still admissible in a court of law?  Shouldn’t perjury charges against our elected officials apply when they lie to the American people?  Shouldn’t there be a higher standard applied to those being paid in our tax dollars to serve in government?  Apparently, there is no accountability with democrats.

When the Gruber video’s appeared showing him telling the truth about his role in deceiving the public about the un-Affordable Care Act (ACA), a.k.a. Obamacare, Obama and the progressive democrats quickly disavowed any knowledge of Gruber.

However, when the law was being crafted, issues of taxation and how the law would be implemented would have prevented the law from even passing.  If the American people knew what was in the law, then it would have never passed.  So the democrats plotted using Gruber’s ideas to reword the law, and sugarcoat the language, to make the ACA look appealing.  It was pure progressive deception, and they laughed and laughed!

When the bill was moving through Congress, evidence was mounting by those trying to keep up with the over 2,000 pages of convoluted wording in the ACA bill, that there was something seriously wrong with the bill.  Nancy Pelosi, who was Speaker of the House of Representatives, at the time claimed that, “we have to pass the bill, to find out what is in it”.  She clearly knew the law would not pass, but the democrats were determine to pass the law anyway.

In the dead of night, on Christmas Eve 2009, 60 democrat Senate members passed the ACA.  Earlier, on December 7th 2009, the House passed the flawed bill by a vote of 220-215.  Every single Republican voted against it.

Since then, the ACA mandate been declared a tax by the Supreme Court.  Justice Roberts basically saying that the law is now the American people’s problem, and “you get the government you voted for, it not the court’s problem you voted stupidly”.  We shall see how that plays with this second round in the Supreme Court.

Indeed it was these lies that democrats, like Gruber, used to plot how the deceive the American people.  With the blessing and support of the progressive democrats, bad laws get passed.  It seems telling the truth is not in the democrat vocabulary.  It is offensive, the arrogance and contempt progressive democrats have for the American people.  You’re not smart enough to know what’s good for you.

You’d think that after Nancy Pelosi was caught lying about her knowledge of Gruber, you wouldn’t think that Obama would double down, and lie about his knowledge of Gruber.  That he would be better prepared for the question, but Obama must think you are stupid.  Do they not realize there is a video of them acknowledging and praising Gruber?  I hope the Supreme Court is watching this unfold, this deception, this outright lie to the American people.

The Tea Party rose from this deliberate deception.  The liberal media and the progressive democrats have tried in vain to discredit the Tea Party as those stupid people that Gruber warned about.  Democrats have called the Tea Party racists, even though many in the Tea Party are minorities.  The 2014 mid-term election cycle made historic gains by Tea Party members and the Republicans.  Including the first black Republican woman senator, Mia Love.

Yet, the liberal media, led by dinosaurs like Tom Brokaw say that the Republicans must now disavow the Tea Party.  I guess Brokaw lies to himself, because it was Tea Party voters that made this election happen.

Obama’s says he hears you, but he’s not listening.  Obama only hears what he wants to hear, and it’s not the voice of the American people.  Like a petulant child, Obama will punish the American people, and the media will blame the Republicans and the Tea Party.  Prepare for a torrent of Obama executive orders designed to hurt Americans.

“You Americans are too stupid to know what’s good for you”.  That’s the message from Jonathan Gruber at team Obama about the American voter.  Gruber, a professor of economics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), expressed his contempt for the American voter by calling them stupid.

Stupid is as stupid does, and Gruber’s admission of lying and manipulating the un-Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, to get it passed is a typical tactic that democrats have use to get legislation that they know won’t work, except to enrich themselves at the taxpayer’s expense.  Gruber might be a economics professor, but he’s bankrupt of common sense.

Gruber was paid $400,000 to promote and speak about the virtues of Obamacare.  It turns out that Obamacare is nothing more than a tax.  The greatest redistribution of wealth in America.  It is government extortion, robbery and deception at its criminal best.  It is the lie of the century, besides Obama’s lie — “If you like your doctor and your health insurance, you can keep your health care. Period!”.

After a real news media (Fox News) reported this lack of transparency, this MIT Turd tried to walk back his statements saying his remarks were “off the cuff and inappropriate”.   He’s sorry he got caught telling the truth.

The more you earn, the more you’ll get taxed.  The more you climb the ladder of success, the more government removes the rungs of success  The exploitation of the American taxpayer by lying to the American people about their health care insurance costs.  Destroying the incentive to work, to profit and to pursue happiness.

Democrats will claim that 7 million people who were not insured, will now be insured under Obamacare.  Yes, but 90 million people will lose their current health care insurance because Obamacare declared it substandard.

Obamacare forces health care insurers to drop coverage because Obamacare declared your health care plan “substandard”.  It’s declared substandard because your current insurance doesn’t cover what Obamacare wants.

Your new Obamacare coverage will force males to pay for abortion coverage, and females to cover prostrate coverage.  It will force older people to cover prenatal coverage, even though they are not having more children.  That’s how the system works!  By declaring your health insurance substandard, by making you pay for coverage you either don’t need, or want.  It’s the one size fits all coverage.  The only problem is paying for all that coverage you don’t need.

Before Obamacare, insurance companies were allowed to tailor your health care insurance to your needs, age and lifestyle.  Obamacare lumps everyone into 4 different coverages that are cost prohibitive and unnecessary.  Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum; there’s no difference in the coverage, just how much you pay.  The Obamacare model doesn’t work.

Then, Obamacare still has a panel of unelected bureaucrats in Washington D.C. that will determine your eligibility for your health care needs.  If you either need a surgery, a drug, or some medical procedure, that will be determined by some Washington D.C. bureaucrats.  Also known as — your death panels.

Obamacare must be repealed and replaced.  Insurance companies should be able to write policies that meet customers needs.  Doctors must be able to provide services that their patients needs.  People need to decide what coverage they want to pay for.  Taxes levied against medical companies need to be repealed to allow innovation to grow.  Everything about what worked before Obamacare should be restored.  The poor that cannot afford health care, should get government subsidies.  Big government health care doesn’t work in a free market.

In America, the great divide is between leftist and everyone else.  Understanding the damage leftism has done to this country can be easily documented.  The best way to understand how a leftist operates, it to watch and listen to their examples.  A leftist can be found in all walks of life, and what they all have in common is a level of intolerance for others that don’t follow their way of thinking.  One of the favorite means the leftist uses is to demonize good people with lies, fear and innuendo.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is the Democratic National Chairperson (DNC), and a committed leftist.  She accused Republican Wisconsin governor Scott Walker of domestic violence against women.  She said of Gov. Walker has, “given women the back of his hand” and is “grabbing us by the hair.”  She made those remarks that at the Milwaukee Athletic club.  She is perpetuating the leftist lie that conservatives have a war on women.  What she is really doing is making a false claim of violence against women a popular governor.  There are some leftist women that make false claims against men as a means to destroy their reputation and credibility.  Putting a thought of doubt to try and avoid the real issues.   Schultz has made similar accusations against others for political gain.  It is the most despicable form of political warfare.  This is the leftist Rape Culture!

One of Schultz favorite claims is to say that Obama has turned the economy, but even leftist NBC News, Meet the Press, David Gregory called her out on it.  To be fair, in politics, it’s not an uncommon practice to make your side look like they know what they are doing.  However, so called “Affordable Care Act”, also known as Obamacare, is proving to be unaffordable.  So to deflect from the problems of this terrible health care law, Schultz accuses Republicans of trying to eliminate Medicare, which is a flat out lie.  Again, she uses fear, uncertainty and doubt to accuse others, Conservatives, of trying to hurt people.  See for example this interview with Fox News Journalist Martha MaCallum:

This same rhetoric rings similar to progressive leftist democrat Alan Grayson who once presented to Congress that Republicans plan is to “Die Quickly”.  Indeed, many in the  Democrat party are progressive leftists socialists.  I mention them as progressives and socialists because they all call themselves either democrats or repackaged as progressives, but the political ideology is the same leftist values.

Leftist values are defined as class struggles;  Class warfare, class envy, and class inequality.  It’s never about individuality, it’s about  a collective struggle.  Many despots and infamous people have repeated the same leftist mantra of the needs of the many outweighs the needs of the individual.  It takes a village to raise a child.  Not parents.  Meaning the state owns your children.

hitlery

 

You’re seeing that with the implementation of “Common Core”, the federalization of education to basically remove the parents, the family, the values and the responsibility, all surrendered to the state.  It is an effort to breed cooperative leftist slaves that will obey the state and not question authority.  It does away with free thinking and replaces knowledge with a prepared future.  That might work in the world of insects, like bees and ants, but that doesn’t work in human nature where individuality and healthy development means survival.

From Each According To His Ability, To Each According To His Needs

Leftism has permeated into the American government, and it’s spreading and getting worse.  Leftism has reached the highest office in the land.  Leftism promises a wonderful future, but delivers nothing but empty promises.  Leftism is deception through demonization of those that can follow through with the gift of American Exceptionalism.  Leftism despises American Exceptionalism.  Leftism believes everyone is equal and therefore not exceptional.  Leftism believes the lives in North Korea are equal to the lives in South Korea.  Leftism pushes a philosophy of equal suffering for all.  Leftism isn’t just limited to the United States of America, it is a worldwide problem, and leftist in American government are using traditional American values to manipulate foreign policy.

John Kerry, the Secretary of State, made a speech claiming the Bible tells us to protect Muslim majority countries from global warming.  This is profound because the leftist usually mocks people of faith, in particular, Christians.   Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, make clear it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” adding, “That responsibility comes from God.”

I don’t know where in the Book of Genesis does it say anything like what Kerry said.  Climate change is not mentioned in the first book of the Old Testament, and neither is Islam nor is Christianity.  So where is Kerry getting his information?  He’s making it up.  This is another leftist value, lying!  Leftist have been using the Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Crisis, Climate meme of the day, as a fear tactic to manipulate a climate of fear to pass legislation.  Legislation to restrict economic growth and force a centralized world government.  Leftist don’t believe in the United States Constitution.  Leftist believe in subverting the Constitution for power and control.

This capitulation to savages has been the leftist fascination with death.  Life, Liberty and Happiness, is an alien concept to the leftist.  Leftist support abortion, the systematic genocide of children.  Leftist call it a right to kill their children.  Adoption isn’t an option because it goes against the leftist values.  Life isn’t a value.  Unless, of course, you are a serial killer facing the death penalty, then the leftist will defend you to your death!  Lynn Stewart was a leftist lawyer that defended muslim terrorists that tried to blow up the World Trade Center in 1993, and she even went to jail for cheating the justice system.  Leftist will defend the indefensible, the murders, the creeps, savages and throat slitters.

In England, the problem with leftism is so pronounced, you can be arrested and charged with racism for either quoting Winston Churchill or referring to muslims as anything but asians.  Which is a disparity to Asians because muslims are not Asians.

This is apart of leftist rape culture of society.  Destroying free speech, and liberty; the leftist will try and outlaw free-thinking.

In England, leftism is so rampant, that muslim rape gangs were allowed to kidnap and gang-rape girls as young as 11 years old.  The police turned a blind eye for fear of being charged with racism and religious intolerance.   A case worker that exposed these crimes was punished and forced to take diversity reeducation.  Punishing the victim and the hero is how leftist advance their veil of fear over decency.

The beheading of a UK soldier in broad daylight, in the middle of the street, was virtually ignored by the world press.  The world press, which is predominantly leftist and bound by political correctness, barely reported this brutal savagery.  Crimes like this go ignored by the leftist media and the victim is punished by the media’s insinuation the attack was somehow all the victim’s fault.

Today a woman was beheaded by a muslim madman in north London.  The media again fails to mention the criminal and the police say it’s not terror related.  England is in a state of denial.

This leftist control over good defenseless people, while protecting savages for political correctness, will destroy western culture.  That fits hand in hand with Islamic terror.  Islamic terror wants a world caliphate, as leftist want world domination.  It seems evil has found a willing partner.  England is not the only country with this problem, it is worse throughout Europe, and it is spreading wherever leftism exists.  Leftist have imported this vile evil relationship to the shores of America, both south and north America.  You see leftist cruelty in combination with islamic savagery all the American countries.

Here in the United States, we have a cowardly president that is a flaming leftist.  After two Americans are beheaded by ISIS terrorists, Obama sheepishly admits he has no strategy to deal with ISIS.  That’s because the strategy is to expand and grow ISIS, and just play dumb.  Then if you listen to Obama at a leftist union rally, he quickly accuses conservatives as being American terrorists.

Yes, evil has a ally.

Even The Tin Man Had A Heart

It seems Americans are accepting of the rules and regulations that come with the so called Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.  Otherwise, there would be a firestorm of complaints and outrage, but where is it?  If there is outrage over the denial of medical care because of Obamacare, then I’m not seeing it in either the media, the public or anywhere else.  Except, of course, among conservative bloggers and commentators.

Remember last year when that the little girl that needed a new set of lungs, but was denied because she was too young?  So, age discrimination is apart of the rules and regulations built into Obamacare.  What other discrimination’s can we expect to find?  The Obama regime keeps changing the rules and no one seems to care.  Let’s remind ourselves of what the HHS Secretary said back then:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today that “someone lives and someone dies” when asked to waive a regulation that stands in the way of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl, from receiving an adult lung that will save her life. 

“Well, I would suggest sir- that again- that this is an incredibly agonizing situation where someone lives and someone dies,” says Sebelius.

Without the transplant, Sarah has an estimated three to five weeks to live. Sebelius has the power to waive the federal regulation and help the girl. (Sebelius makes the comment around 2:13 in.)

That’s a pretty cold and callus response by Sebelius, and the Obama regime stood by her decision to deny care to a desperate little girl.  Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa, begged Sebelius to wave the rules to help this little girl.  Are we now at the mercy of our elected representatives to beg for our healthcare needs?  A judge finally had to order Sebelius to wave the rules and allow Sarah Murnaghan the  transplant she needed.  The transplant was successful and her prognosis will allow her a full life expectancy.

Secretary’s refusal to set aside the Under 12 Rule to protect the very few children nationally who are subject to it, despite evidence showing that the Rule discriminates against children and serves no purpose, is arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion.

Is this how Obamacare is supposed to work?  Is Obamacare in actuality, denied care?  It seems that is the case, and it also seems the most vulnerable in our society will be the victims of this national healthcare nightmare.   The very young, the elderly and the very sick are routinely being denied care.  It is rationed care, make no mistake about it.

Remember that Obama promised that his healthcare plan will prevent insurance companies from dropping people’s coverage when they get sick.  But that’s what’s happening!

Guy Benson, a conservative writer at Townhall magazine, has been following this story and others around the country:

Of the 125 appeals they’ve filed on behalf of young patients so far, fewer than 20 percent have received a response, and nearly half of those were denials.

In addition to being denied healthcare, people are seeing their healthcare insurance premiums increase.  Remember that Obama said your insurance rates would go down.  That’s isn’t happening.  I’m guessing that’s what democrats and progressives had in mind when they wrote the 2,000+ page law.  Deceptively named, the “Affordable Care Act“, Obamacare is just the opposite of affordable, for both patient and doctor.  That is the nature of progressivism, it is always  the opposite of what it is named for.  But don’t be confused by the term “progressive”, it is who democrats are.  It’s just another rebranding of their political philosophy.   They say they are the party of the little guy, but their actions make the little guy littler.  Progressives love to control and shape society into their vision of utopia; unfortunately, that vision is getting people killed.

Let’s review: people that refer to themselves as democrats, are actually progressives, and progressives are socialists.  It sounds confusing, but when you listen to their political philosophy, you’ll hear it in their proposals and solutions to societies problems.  They use flowery names like, “affordable” and “care”, to convince people they know what’s best for your needs.  However, when progressives implement their ideas as policy, the opposite effect is always  the case.   Promising people free stuff is always enticing, and it’s all paid for by your government!  Who could resist that idea?

Obama, a ueber  progressive, swore up and down that insurance premiums would go down.  Obama swore that if you liked your healthcare plan and your doctor, you can keep them, PERIOD!  We know know that was all a lie!  But where is the outrage?  Crickets!  Just like Obama’s other scandals, people don’t seem to want to care.  I suppose being lied to is now acceptable to most Americans, until it begins to affect them.   Wait till the employer mandate kick in.

Watch what happens when employees learn about losing their healthcare because of Obamacare.  Listen to how more expensive their new healthcare plans will cost.  Learn how their jobs are in jeopardy because of Obamacare’s progressive policies.  Read it here!

LibertianDivider

OK, so you might be asking, what do conservatives have as the alternative to the destructive progressive policies?  We offer plenty of solutions; starting by getting government out of the way.  Obamacare puts a government bureaucrat between you and your doctor.  Conservatives want to remove that barrier.  Conservatives want you to keep more of the money you earn, so that you can spend it the way you want.  The progressive philosophy says, no, government knows what’s best for you.

Conservatives want health insurance to be allowed to be purchased across state lines.  Allowed the employee to take their coverage with them when that change jobs.  Shop for the best coverage that they want, not dictated by some government bureaucrat.  Conservatives have lots of ideas to help with healthcare, we call them free market ideas.

Conservatives want businesses to grow and profit.  Progressives want to regulate businesses and decide which business will profit and which ones will be regulated.  That’s the description of crony capitalism.  It is the progressive perversion of capitalism.  Conservatives want capitalism unfettered to grow and profit, progressives want to regulate and demonize profits.  Progressives have no problem giving away other people money to corporations that agree with their causes.  Environmentalism is one such cause that progressives embrace.   Remember all the Green Projects that Obama pumped Trillions of dollars into?  That’s your money they used to try and manipulate the green energy market.  It failed miserably and lots of people lost jobs and money.  That’s crony capitalism.

Conservatives are the real environmentalist.  Progressives are the opposite of environmentalism.  Environmental groups like the criminal organization “Sierra Club” are not for the environment, they are for regulating businesses out of business.  The name conservative means to conserve; conserving the environment, conserving your savings, conserving your freedoms, conserving your liberty, conserving the United States Constitution.  We conservatives don’t have to rebrand ourselves into cutesy names like progressives need to do.  Conservatives keep their promises, whereas progressives use promises to get what they want, and to hell with everyone else.  Why else would progressives want to regulate the health care industry, but to control your access to healthcare providers, i.e. Doctors.  Conservatives want the traditional relationship between the doctor and patient, without some progressive government bureaucrat deciding if you are worthy of healthcare.  Remember when Alaska Governor, and former Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin was excoriated by progressives by suggesting that Obamacare would be regulated by government “Death Panels”?  She Was Right!  There’s is no denying that!

Remember when conservative Senator Ted Cruz filibustered in the Senate against Obamacare?  The progressives then decided it was in their political advantage to shutdown the government and then blame it on the republicans.  Senator  Ted Cruz knew what was coming, he tried to warn people, but progressives along with their corrupt media allies blamed the government shutdown on the republicans.  The republican leadership, or lack thereof, didn’t have the principles to stand up and fight.  Who loses?  We all do.

True conservatives are for limited government, less regulations and more individual liberties.  Freedom is not free, it comes with a price.  Which is why we need a strong military to defend our freedoms.  Conservatives understand that purpose of the governments role and responsibilities, but progressives abhor that and want to government to control your life, because they believe they know what’s best for you.  It seems Americans agree with that philosophy.  Americans have been giving up their freedoms for promises of free healthcare, free retirement, free housing; all the promises of Social Justice that progressives campaign on.

Americans are being wooed with the progressive promise of income equality.  Progressives claim that corporations are making huge sums of money at your expense.  Yet, progressives cozy up to ultra rich Hollywood types and sports athletes that make millions of dollars.  Yet, these progressive allies offer little in jobs and advancement for the average American struggling to pay their bills.  Progressive demonize corporate executives salaries saying they are being paid too much, yet the progressives get rich through crony capitalism at your expense.  Corporations that offer jobs and upward mobility, a career path to success and the American dream.  Progressives  want to keep the American people on the government plantation where they can dictate what job you can have, what healthcare you’ll receive, and what freedoms you’ll lose.  We’re losing our freedoms before our eyes, and people are blinded by progressive shiny objects.  A heartless government, run by heartless progressives.

Are There Any Joe Wilson’s In Congress?

SOTU

 

 

Tonight’s State of the Union address shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Expectations are already set to a very low bar.  So what lies can we expect from Barry the Bullshitter?  Will he wave his pen and cellphone around?  Will he accuse the Republicans of not working with him?  Will Obama apologize to the American people?  How about the millions of people that have lost their health insurance, and their jobs?  Will Obama mention anything about that?  Will Obama announce his resignation?  Too much to expect I suppose.

Lawlessness and a clear and present danger to the American people; Obama and the democrats, their media minions, continue to take the liberties upon American’s freedoms.   Lying,  it seems, is the only remaining core value these people have anymore.

I predict that Obama will call for an increase in the minimum wage.  Which will cause more unemployment for young people.  But what’s the worry?  They can stay on their parents health insurance till they’re 26!  If they want college loans, they are forced to go through the government squirrel wheel cage, where their futures will spin with never ending debt.

I predict that Obama will continue to blame George W. Bush and Republicans for his lousy economic policies and the high unemployment.  Although, the media reports the unemployment rate at 7.6%, the actual rate is more like 15%.  Because the actual numbers are fudged by not reporting those discouraged workers who have dropped out of the job market.  I’m somewhat dubious of the statement of discouraged workers, because I believe workers want a job, but are having a hard time finding one.

I predict that Obama will call for a continuation of Unemployment insurance payments.  Let’s see, unemployment insurance is suppose to be only 26 weeks, but then it was extending to 99 weeks.  Some people have been on unemployment for the last 5 years!  So I expect Obama to call for more emergency unemployment insurance.  At what point do the people paying into the system start running out of money?

I predict that Obama will call for more renewable energy initiatives to combat global warming.  Translation; more taxpayer’s monies spent on failing technologies like Solyndra.  Somehow, the government in charge of energy development is a losing prospect for the American people.  Note that the Keystone pipeline sits idle, and the EPA continues its war on coal and fossil fuels.  I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how energy is renewable after it has been spent.  Especially, when there is an abundance of cheap available energy.

I predict Obama will call for the expansion of immigration amnesty for illegals.  A slap in the face to those immigrants that followed the law, waited in line, and did the right thing.  Expect to hear Obama repeat that same phrase, ‘it’s the right thing to do!’  Is it the right thing to allow lawlessness?  When does it end?  How is that fair to those that followed the rules?

I predict that Obama will continue to sputter divisive rhetoric using threats and intimidation.  I fully expect to hear nothing new of any substance that will help the economy.  I do expect to hear more lofty goals to increase jobs programs, but nothing to incentivize employers to hire.  Are we to expect new jobs are to be all government jobs?  How will that be paid for?

I predict Obama will make wild false claims about his policies.  He will say that his policies are working to help the economy, creating jobs, lowering unemployment.  He will continue to demonize groups like the Tea Party as obstructionist to his policies, and will be true.  After 5 years of failed policies and lies, how can anyone trust this President to tell the truth?

Obama has repeated, over and over, that he’s not willing to negotiate.  It’s my way, or the highway.  This divisive rhetoric is all Barry the Bullshitter has left.  For the next three years, I predict Obama will continue to lose the trust of the American people.  As the Obamacare employer mandate starts to roll out,  and more people start to lose their health care insurance, their doctors and their lives; maybe then will people start to wake up and start paying attention.
