Yep! That’s what the Mr and I will be talking about over our Cornish hens and cranberry sauce….just how ‘wonderful’ Obamadontcare is, and how the unicorns are farting rainbows!
Can this administration makes themselves look any more ridiculous and desperate? No doubt….they can.
What EVERYONE Will Be Talking About at Thanksgiving Dinner
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Have you seen them? The guides for how to talk to your family about Obamacare over the holidays.
That’s right—Organizing for America (OFA), President Obama’s campaign group, has a big push called “Health Care for the Holidays” that urges people to “have the talk” with their loved ones about getting health insurance. The Washington Post also published a “Guide to Surviving Obamacare Debates at Thanksgiving.”
Obama’s group encourages you to “Integrate the talk into family time: Take advantage of downtime after meals or between holiday activities to start your talk.”
It goes on: “Get creative: Think about what matters to your family member. Make it memorable!”
The OFA website features images of Christmas wreaths alongside pills, snowflakes beside a Band-Aid, and a doctor’s kit next to some turkey legs. Yep, these go together like…your health care and government control.
Thanks to Obamacare’s disastrous rollout and sinking polls, the activist group is desperate to have people tell their family members happy thoughts about the new regime:
- “You get to choose the plan that’s right for you.”
- Fact: Obamacare’s new exchanges actually offer very limited choice.
- “You can find a plan that fits your budget.”
- Fact: Premiums will be more expensive for health insurance exchange shoppers in at least 42 states. See your state here.
The Washington Post’s guide gives possible examples of different family members and their concerns. For the relative who insists everything would be working better if we had gone straight to a single-payer, completely government-administered system, the Post’s Sarah Kliff notes that “we do at least have some evidence that building a government-run insurance system isn’t exactly an easy lift.”
Right. And for that brother who has insurance through his workplace—should he be worried? Kliff says no: “We’re really not seeing much in the way of employers dropping workers into the marketplaces.” But Obamacare dramatically changes the incentives for employers offering health coverage, and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects that 7 million people with employer-sponsored coverage will lose it due to Obamacare.
Kliff sums it up pretty well when she writes, “This is probably the most obvious question to come up on Thursday: How busted is this law?”
It’s very, very busted. That’s why Congress should start over and implement health care reforms that are patient-centered and market-based—the opposite of Obamacare.
In case you aren’t aware, the definition of a humanist doesn’t quite jibe with this garbage that would deny children a little joy.
1. a person having a strong interest in or concern for human welfare, values, and dignity.
2. a person devoted to or versed in the humanities.
3. a student of human nature or affairs.
4. a classical scholar.
5. ( sometimes initial capital letter ) any one of the scholars of the Renaissance who pursued and disseminated the study and understanding of the cultures of ancient Rome and Greece, and emphasized secular, individualistic, and critical thought.
7. of or pertaining to human affairs, nature, welfare, or values.
8. ( sometimes initial capital letter ) of or pertaining to the humanities or classical scholarship, especially that of the Renaissance humanists.
9. of or pertaining to philosophical or scientific humanism.
Nope! Doesn’t quite jibe, does it!
Why is it that people I have never met, and honestly, never want to meet, have so much control over what I do with my life, or what’s left of my life? I’m no spring chicken, but not quite ready to go toes up. I have, however, lived long enough, sadly, to see such a radical change in our nation that I’m not all that sure living in this once free nation, founded in sound principle, is worth it. If I could think of somewhere else to go, and could afford it, I would! Where are those moon bases we were promised? No, I’m not really giving up on this land of my birth, I’m just getting more pissed off by the day! And I don’t think I’m the only one whose BP is rising!
In my opinion, all Marxists are insane, fairly stupid, lacking in grown up common sense, and over loaded with greed. What we have ‘ruling’ the nation right now is a Marxist… I can’t say it any more plain that that!
Denying people the ability to succeed, or fail, on their own merits is just one indicator. Forcing people to buy something they don’t want, don’t need, and can’t afford, is another. FORCING individuals and businesses to deny their faith is a violation of the 1st Amendment, a God given right, intended to restrain the government from establishing a state religion, not meant to deny the people the right to worship, yes…even in the public square. Regulating businesses to the point they can no longer afford to be a business is insanity.
Forcing restaurants, fast food or otherwise, to provide a detailed nutritional value ‘chart’, is one of those stupid and insane items I mentions. First, the cost would be absurd. Second, if you have a large number of items, your wall will be nothing but numbers that are pretty much meaningless to the average American. Third, no one gives a damn! I don’t buy a pizza, from anyone, for the caloric content and nutritional value. I buy a pizza, on the very rare occasion, because that is what I am in the mood to have for lunch or dinner. Now Obama and his gubmint thugs are going to tell me I can’t have one because it’s not good for me? And if I’m allowed to have one, it’s going to cost twice the amount it did previously, thanks to said clown and thugs. Are they going to come up with tasteless nutrient wafers, pass them out at what use to be a grocery store so we get our allotted ‘dosage’?
The purpose of Obamacare is not health care, or even to regulate the insurance industry. No, the purpose to get us all in lockstep with the goose steppers, turn us into compliant sheep, and crush the life out of us. Comply! Well, I will NOT comply!
I keep hearing how this incompetent boob is so charismatic. Really? I don’t see it. I find nothing about him charismatic, or even intelligent, so why should I allow him, and his lapdogs, dictate what I can and cannot do? Jobs will be lost, businesses will go under, and the 90,000,000 + who are already out of work will have a lot more company in the “bread lines”.
Explain to me why we are not already in full out rebellion against the tyranny?
How Obamacare Will Try to Control What You Eat
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Did you know there are 34 million different ways to make a Domino’s pizza?
Mary Lynne Carraway can’t fit that on a menu board. But that’s what Obamacare says she has to do: Put up a menu board in each of her 60 Domino’s stores that tells people the calorie count of every possible combination. Of course, all the information is already available online.
“Right now I’m 60 to 70 percent Internet,” Carraway said of her business. “So people can go online and they can look at the nutritional values because it’s all broken up there.”
Due to the UN-Afordable Care Act, which has nothing to do with care, health, or affordability, I now have to go see my doc every time I need a prescription refilled that helps me to function without tears? Every single time! Instead of calling them on the phone, having them call my pharmacy, I have to drive into town using gas that the eco-nuts say causes pollution, spend money on an office visit that we can ill afford, wait up to two hours, to have my doc look at me and say, “why yes, you are in quite a bit of pain, aren’t you”, and write a prescription on paper that is from a tree that had to be cut down? Yep! Obamacare does more than just cancel insurance policies. It does a WHOLE lot more…like telling doctors HOW to practice medicine.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never drank from a fire hydrant. They have those really tight screw looking things that firemen have to use a special BIG tool on to remove them so they can attach a big ol’ long hose to so they can fight fires. That’s what those things are for….fight fires….not for human consumption!
The EPA is a tyrannical agency with a Napoleon complex. A bully, to say the least! You know, the little guy in the bar that decides to show what a big man he is by taking a swing at the biggest guy in the room. Unfortunately for us, we don’t have a ‘big guy’ in the room to fight these morons. They say you can’t do something, like build on your own property, or install a fire hydrant (and the list goes on and on), and that’s that! No recourse! Oh, you can go to court, but it’ll cost you a fortune, and the EPA is paid by the very people who are fighting against them, so it’s a lose/lose. And they know it!
Ask me how the government could save a lot of money? Start with scrapping the tyrants at the EPA! They are costing the taxpayers way too much for dictating how, when, where and what.
Reality: Insurance companies have to cancel policies because they don’t cover what Obama thinks we all need, like maternity and birth control. Well, there are a lot of folks who don’t want, or need birth control, OR maternity. The Mr sure doesn’t need it, and at my age, if I got preggers, I’d be rich! Cuz that doc that removed the works due to cancer must have screwed up somewhere!
So, yes, due to Obamacare, insurance companies are canceling policies. Ergo…THEY LIE!
Obama and Sebelius: Obamacare Didn’t Cancel Your Plans
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Obamacare dictates what government-approved health insurance looks like.
That’s the whole point of the law. You must buy government-approved health insurance, and the bureaucrats will tell you what it must cover.
But President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are now denying this.
Yesterday, they both came out publicly to tell America that it’s not Obamacare that’s causing you to receive a cancellation notice—it’s your insurance company.
Obama called insurance plans that are getting canceled “substandard” and said people could actually keep those plans if insurers still offered them (which they can’t under the President’s health care law). He said those plans are getting canceled only if “insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans” (which they must under the law).
But guess what? If your plan is canceled, Obamacare will bring you a “better deal,” the President said.
That likely won’t make sense to people seeing these Obamacare premium hikes in 42 states.
The bread and butter of Obamacare is transforming health insurance, forcing Americans to buy a government-mandated product, and dictating what health care must look like.
Yet Sebelius said “This isn’t a government takeover of anything.”
President Obama accused Obamacare’s critics of leaving out information. But we just have to quote his words back to him on this blatant denial of Obamacare’s effects: “If you leave that stuff out, you’re being grossly misleading to say the least.”
Obama also said if people have better ideas for health reform, he’ll be happy to listen. In the next few days, The Heritage Foundation will roll out its newest ideas for health reform that puts patients ahead of bureaucrats and would actually restore choice.
During a weekend of protests in Washington, D.C., a number of veterans stood up to a vindictive federal government by removing barricades erected around outdoor war memorials. These heroes transported the iron obstacles to the White House in a show of defiance against an administration that dismisses and devalues their worldview.
When the rallies and marches were over, National Park Service employees worked feverishly Monday to reinstall the barricades, making sure no other visitors get to see the monuments.
Low life, scum sucking, son of a bitch!! I am not going to even attempt to be a lady! I could call him even worse, but I am to damn angry right now, to put it mildly!
I was looking for some information earlier today, and came across this:
Now, excuse me if I’m shocked over a gubmint site being shut down. IF the site needed constant updating, I could see it, but the reality is, the census has been taken, the numbers tallied, and there is nothing else to do. This is just one more “make life as difficult as you can” Obama tactic. I didn’t actually NEED the site, because guess what…there are other sites, totally unrelated to the DC trashcan, that has the SAME information I was searching.
The gubmint is NOT shut down! 81% of the government is still up and running. The non-essentials aren’t getting a paycheck right now. Excuse me, but if they are NON-essential, why are we paying them? The problem is, they’ve shut down ESSENTIAL organizations. They are paying park police to terrorize veterans, but not the CDC. The fork over millions to NPR, or PBS, or whatever, but can’t pay the earned benefits to our heroes’ families who come back in a flag draped box.
Now I hear the EBT machines aren’t working? There are people who rely on those cards for food to feed their families. PBS? Gestapo park police? We can tell where Obama and the Dems priorities lie. NO, it is NOT the Republicans fault. Learn the truth for a change!!! The Democrats would rather see children go hungry than delay the worse law that has ever hit this country.
Perhaps they are hoping for civil disobedience? Riots? I’m not of the ‘conspiracy theory’ mindset, but I’m starting to wonder.
Just ONE of the many reason…..I’m 100% sick of these spineless weasels!!
Aside from reopening the government and agreeing to raise America’s debt over the current $16.7 trillion limit, the Republicans made several other concession to President Obama and the Democrats. One such example is that Obamacare would receive funding. The Republicans would get to take out a portion of the president’s signature legislation, but the law would substantially remain intact. The AP reports:
Under a proposal she and other GOP senators have been developing, a medical device tax that helps finance the health care law would be repealed, and millions of individuals eligible for subsidies to purchase health insurance under the program would be subject to stronger income verification.
In addition, some of the across-the-board “sequester” cuts would be reversed under the GOP plan. It has not been determined which specific cuts will be targeted at this time.
In exchange for meeting, at least momentarily, all of Obama’s demands, the House GOP is seeking a “framework” for future negotiations on addressing longer-term budget issues. These negotiations would be led for the Republicans by Rep. Paul Ryan, who is likely to seek a “grand bargain” resolving the nation’s structural budget problems.
They’re stone deaf! They do not hear WE, The People. This was not a negotiation. This was just one more suck up by the RINOs to their new masters. Cowards! Plain and simple. Sniveling cowards!!!
….and sign the bill that defunds Obamacare!!!
Obama lied, the economy died!
While Obama was going around the country, touting his lies about his wondrous new plan that will save money, and lives, there were a bunch of asshats sitting in “smoke filled” back rooms making plans to totally destroy the economy with their so call Affordable Care Act. The problem is, it was all lies! BIG FAT LIES!
Even before this monstrosity kicked on the 1st, premiums started going up. Hell, mine went up shortly after they passed the bill that NOT ONE Congress critter bothered to read! Queen Botox even told us, smarmily, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.” What a load of caca de toro! That is NOT how the U.S. government was founded to run. Right then, the American people SHOULD have known that this was NOT about health, nor care!
Have you gotten your letter? I got one telling me that I could keep the coverage I have, which is very little coverage for a whole lot of money, thanks to Obamacare, because it’s ‘grandfathered’ in (purchased before 3/23/10, OR… I could change it to a wondrous NEW plan that will cover ‘certain services including preventive, maternity, mental health, pediatric dental and vision care”. What I have now and the “new and improved” plan qualify as “minimum essential coverage”.
Excuse me, but I have NO need for maternity benefits, and don’t need to pay for them. I don’t need a shrink. I don’t have small children, so I honestly don’t see the need to pay for that either. We have always paid the docs out of pocket, which makes for a LOWER payment to him/her, so why would I want that either? I’m also informed, that if I change to the “new and improved” plan, I will NEVER be able to change back to my current coverage if I don’t like the ‘new’, so I’ll be FORCED to pay for something I don’t want or need for the rest of my life? Guess what I’m going to do! You got it… for the moment, I’m keeping what I’ve got. One thing the letter did NOT mention is just how much my insurance was going to go up….AGAIN! If there is another increase on my next premium notice, I will be paying that TAX they call a fine.
Isn’t funny how all those folks who were so gung-ho for Obama are now finding out he lied to them? I find it HIGHLY amusing. They can’t say they weren’t warned!!
How Much Is Your Health Insurance Going Up?
Kelsey Harris – The Foundry
Have you gotten a letter from your insurance company about your premiums going up? Has your employer told you that more will be coming out of your paycheck to pay for your health plan?
President Obama promised that Obamacare would lower premiums by $2,500. But instead, Americans everywhere are facing higher premiums because of Obamacare.
George Schwab, who lives in North Carolina, was notified in a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield on September 23 that his current plan doesn’t meet Obamacare’s benefit requirements and would be canceled at the end of the year. While Blue Cross did suggest a comparable plan, it was $980 more than what he now pays.
…Did Obama Close the WWII Memorial to Hurt Veterans?
Whether you’re curious or not, there are several reasons I haven’t been posting much, even though there is a great deal to post about these days. The personal reasons, I’ll keep to myself for the moment. The political? You really don’t want to read a post laced with ‘colorful metaphors’ as Captain Kirk called them. My anger increases with every revolting action of this administration and the phallic adoring Democrats. The most recent I’ve seen? Shutting down Amber alerts! How many children will be lost due to Obama’s arrogance!?!
Right now, I’m going to have to concentrate on personal issues. Barack Hussein Obama, and every single Democrat POS can burn in hell worshiping their evil master.
I’m sick of Obamacare! I’m sick of talking about it, I’m sick of writing about it, I’m sick of Obama!! Period! That jackass isn’t concerned with your financial trouble that his “PET” is going to cause you. Harry Reid doesn’t give a damn if your going to have to go into the hole to be able to pay for your insurance. NONE of them give a damn!
I will say it again and again: This isn’t about health care! This is about CONTROL! Control of your health care, control of your finances, control of your household, control of YOU!
CONTACT YOUR SENATORS NOW! If they are up for re-election in 2014, make sure they know that many will find someone else to replace them that WILL reflect their values, AND represent them! We’re working on that right now in Tennessee. You hear that Lamar?
Will Congress Stop Obamacare?
Rob Bluey & Ryan O’Donnell
Less than 24 hours from now, the government takeover of health care will begin implementation—unless Congress acts to stop Obamacare.
Over the weekend, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to delay the unpopular law’s implementation by one year. Although the plan falls short of defunding Obamacare, Heritage Action for America called the delay “a step towards preventing the law’s entitlements from taking root.”
Lawmakers also approved a measure to repeal Obamacare’s tax on medical devices and ensure that the U.S. military would continue to get paid in the event of a government shutdown tomorrow.
With so much at stake, all eyes are on President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who must decide if they will force Obamacare on the American people — harming individual citizens, our country’s health care system and our economy.
…not the country they were charged with protecting, nor the oath they swore to do so.
We need to wipe the slate clean! Those who have been fighting to protect our God given rights, cut federal spending, and uphold their oaths of office can be re-elected. The rest NEED TO GO! The control of the government should be in the hands of law abiding, Constitution supporting, citizens. Few in Congress fall into that category. They not only get paid a fat salary, but a LOT of perks you and I will never see.
I see Congress and the administration as ticks. Blood suckers that must be burned out, because heaven knows, they have truly buried themselves into our skin. In other words, they have more control of your life than you do! They have created parasites, like them, who feel entitled to live on YOUR hard earned money, even though the amount you earn may be less than what you need to live a reasonably comfortable life without falling into debt.
If we have to use crowbars to remove them out of their overstuffed, taxpayer funded, comfy seats, then so be it. WE MUST put a stop to the feckless weasels and their reckless spending!
6 Reasons Why the National Debt Keeps Rising
Josh Shepherd – The Foundry
Out-of-control spending by Congress and the Obama Administration has once again maxed out the latest debt limit—a nearly $17 trillion burden that harms job growth, gives special interests a pass, and lowers American families’ personal income.
Inspired by Dave Ramsey’s recent post “6 Reasons People Stay in Debt,” we compiled six reasons why Members of Congress, the Obama Administration, and others in Washington avoid the path to financial stability in favor of big spending…
1. lie: an intentionally untrue statement
2. telling of lies: the act of spreading lies
3. something not consistent with fact: something that does not correspond with the known or observable facts
Synonyms: lie, untruth, story, tale, fiction, fib, misrepresentation
Why don’t we just call it what it is…. LIES! Period!
5 Immigration Falsehoods from the White House
Jessica Zuckerman & Ken McIntyre – The Foundry
Congress gets back to its regularly scheduled work on Monday—and there’s plenty of immigration propaganda greeting them.
The falsehoods from the White House just keep on coming, and Catholic leaders have called for clergy to preach in support of the Senate-passed immigration overhaul this Sunday.
On the White House blog, Cecilia Muñoz, assistant to the President and director of the Domestic Policy Council, laid out the Obama Administration’s take on the benefits of “commonsense immigration reform.” The blog, complete with “fact sheets” and the reposting of an animated video, made numerous claims about what the Senate-passed immigration bill (S. 744) would do for U.S. citizens and immigrants alike.
Here is how five of the White House’s latest claims stack up against the facts.
