An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Here’s a bullet of truth for ya….Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t give two flips about your health and well being. Never has, never will. His intent was, and is, control.
Now that the government has control over practically ever aspect of your life, how do ya like it? Do you like not being able to see the same doctor you’ve had since you were knee high to a grasshopper? Do you enjoy those 90 mile drives, and a 3 hour wait just to see a doctor that knows nothing about you?
Congress didn’t read the bill they passed with such fanfare. Ya know what? I bet all those who voted for it, STILL haven’t read it, they can’t be bothered ya know. Of course, the current incarnation really has nothing to do with the original bill, since it’s been changed, and delayed, and…. (“Law of the land” my left eyeball!) They have more important things to do, like worry about whether or not Guam is going to tip over, decimating our military, and giving the shaft to our veterans. Of course, the biggie this year is their campaign. Heaven forbid, never get in the way of a politician and someone else’s money!
Yes, you were warned, by many with much bigger voices than mine. This is one reason why it is imperative that conservatives, and even Republican, take over the Senate this year. IMPERATIVE! Give control of health care back to the people who understand what their needs are, and lose the government interference. It was government interference that was the cause of rising costs over the last few decades. Get government OUT of everything, but what they were designed to do, per the U.S. Constitution. Anything outside of that document is criminal!
9 Obamacare Predictions That Have Come True
Robert Moffit – The Foundry
It directly affects the personal life of every American, and it controls or regulates a complex sector of the American economy that is slightly larger than the entire economy of France.
If you guessed Obamacare, you’ve been paying attention for the past four years.
Four years ago, many health policy analysts, including those at The Heritage Foundation, predicted some of the effects this law would have on Americans. These are all coming true. Here are nine of our predictions that have come to pass—and it’s not over yet.
1. The individual mandate is an enforcement nightmare.
As a candidate, President Obama worried that an individual mandate to buy insurance would be unenforceable. He changed his mind once he became president. This year—the first year that the mandate penalties are to be imposed—he has already started backtracking on the enforcement of the provision he signed into law.
2. The law will create new disincentives to work.
Between Obamacare’s higher taxes and its subsidies that drop off if you raise your income, there’s not a lot of incentive here to work harder and better your situation.
3. The law, particularly the employer mandate, will impose new costs on businesses that undercut jobs and wages.
The employer mandate has been delayed until 2015, but the uncertainty Obamacare has created—and its 18 new tax hikes—have put a huge dent in job creation.
“Cheese eating surrender monkeys.” Yep, that about sums up the GOP, doesn’t it.
I honestly don’t know why the Obama administration is celebrating 7 million sign ups. This whole thing was rolled out back in October. 7 million in six months doesn’t sound like much of a reason to celebrate, especially when there are still just as many uninsured as there were before this whole fiasco started.
The serious questions: How many have actually PAID? How many signed up for Medicare, and won’t be paying a dime? How many are actually young and healthy? You know the ones that are suppose to be picking up the slack. How many are sick, and will cause premiums to go up even higher than they are already? Just how many will be getting subsidies? How much money will the taxpayers have to cough up to cover these folks? How many were previously uninsured? How many had insurance that was canceled, and had no choice but to get shafted by the administration with their crappy, over priced website? How much will the taxpayer be on the hook to the insurance companies with THEIR ‘bailouts’, which we all know is coming.
Take control of people’s health care, and you have control of the people.
The Charts Obama Doesn’t Want You to See
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Talking about Obamacare’s effects is one thing; seeing hard data is another.
Heritage’s newly updated Obamacare in Pictures has 15 charts that show the law’s effects on Americans—from canceled insurance policies to new taxes, Medicare cuts, reduced choice for plans, and more.
Here’s a quick look at just three of these charts and how Obamacare is hitting three groups.
I guess I’m lying too, eh? My new Obamadontcare type of plan, even though it’s through the same company I have been with for 10 years, really does cover my meds, and didn’t increase the deductible, or the out of pocket? Perhaps I should send Reid and Obama the bills?
I am of the opinion that Harry Reid has been suffering from Alzheimer’s for quite a while, and should himself, and the country a HUGE favor…..RETIRE!
All Those Obamacare Stories You Told Us Were Untrue
Amy Payne – The Foundry
“There’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue.” – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
“Many of the tall tales that have been told about this law have been debunked.” – President Barack Obama
Last week was “victory lap” week for liberals on Obamacare. After years of telling the American people that we just don’t understand the health law enough to love it properly, the president and his allies are now crowing that all debate should be over.
I’d say that pretty much sums it up!
The Joke Is On Us
Amy Payne – The Foundry
It really writes itself: Obamacare as the ultimate April Fools’ Day punchline.
Which of these is your favorite? Share them with your friends.
Screw You, Mickey Kaus
by Ann Coulter
I’ve been thrown off my health insurance — THANKS, OBAMACARE! — and have spent hours and hours over the past month trying to figure out my options now that the Democrats have made my old plan, which I liked, “illegal.” (I prefer to think of my plan as “undocumented.”)Whom do I bill for the hours of work Obamacare forced me to perform? How about you, Mickey? You’re the smartest living liberal (faint praise), and you assured us that Obamacare was going to be fantastic.
By now, Obama has issued “waivers” from Obamacare to about 99 percent of the country. (Perhaps you’ve heard, there’s a big midterm election this year.) As one of the few Americans not granted a waiver, I’m here to tell you: You have no idea what’s coming, America.
I thought I had figured out the best plan for me a month ago after having doctors and hospital administrators look at the packets of material I was sent by my old insurance company — the same mailing that informed me my old plan was “illegal” under Obamacare.
But when I checked online recently, I discovered the premier plan — the “platinum,” low-deductible, astronomically expensive plan that might be accepted by an English-speaking doctor who didn’t attend medical school in a Hawaiian shirt and board shorts — does not include treatment at any decent hospitals.
New Obama Promise: If You Like Your Life, You Can Keep It
by Ann Coulter
Liberals are winning wild praise for their candor in admitting problems with Obamacare. It shows you the level of honesty people have come to expect of our liberal friends. Now, liberals are applauded for not lying through their teeth about something.
What are they supposed to say? This Obamacare website is fantastic! And really, haven’t you already read all the magazines in your current doctor’s office anyway?
The New York Times has described Obama’s repeated claim that you could keep your insurance plan and keep your doctor under Obamacare as a mere slip of the tongue: “Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that.”
Misspoke? How exactly does one misspeak, word for word, dozens of times, over and over again?
That wasn’t misspeaking — it was a deliberate, necessary lie. Even Democrats couldn’t have voted for Obamacare if Americans had known the truth. It was absolutely vital for Obama to lie about people being able to keep their insurance and their doctors.
Our King George isn’t just one person. Nope! It’s 537 different individuals! There are a lot more of us than there are of them!
Just four reasons for the American Revolution. I don’t know about you, but I’d have to say we have a LOT more reasons than did the Colonials!
More New Taxes and Fees: How You’ll Pay for Obamacare in 2014
Alyene Senger – The Foundry
Obamacare contains 18 specific tax hikes, mandates, or penalties that cost Americans money, and three new ones take effect in 2014. This is only the beginning—watch how two of these taxes get worse in the years to come.
1. Individual Mandate Tax. The individual mandate is designed to strong-arm individuals into purchasing government-approved health insurance or facing a tax penalty. In 2014, the penalty for not purchasing insurance will be either $95 or 1 percent of annual income (whichever is greater). Very few, if any, people will end up paying just $95, because individuals with an annual income of only $9,500 or less would likely qualify for Medicaid or a hardship exemption from the mandate. The mandate increases drastically in coming years, rising to $325 or 2 percent of income in 2015, and $695 or 2.5 percent of income in 2016—whichever is greater.
He should have stayed in Chicago, or Hawaii, or…wherever the hell he’s from, originally. I honestly don’t care. He lied, cheated, and stole his way into the White House, and because he has no honor, the nation suffers. His minion in the Senate, Harry Reid, makes sure nothing of worth, gets to the floor. We keep hearing the Rs have no plans to counter this disaster, but that’s far from the truth. Bill after bill after bill has passed the House, only to be left on the cutting floor of Reid’s Senate. Oh, you thought it was YOUR Senate? Oh foolish one! None of the branches have belonged to The People for a very long time, we’ve just all failed to notice it until recently, and even now, many are under the delusion this is still a Constitutional Republic.
We are now rolling our way to 1 January 2014, and what do you think it going to happen? Sadly, there will be people on their way home from parties, getting into wrecks, arrive at the hospital, hopefully alive, yet hurting, only to find out….they have no insurance, or their insurance isn’t taken at the hospital of choice. The hospital will do it’s better to stabilize, but past that, they really are under no obligation….unless, of course, you can afford to pay up front. No, there doesn’t seem to be a Hippocratic Oath anymore. That went out the window with Obamadontcare.
So Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to all you Obama droolers. You got what you paid for…..A FRAUD!
Top 10 Broken Obamacare Promises
Alyene Senger – The Foundry
Since the passage of Obamacare in 2010, many of the President’s famous promises have been routinely broken. As he so ironically threatened in 2009, “If you misrepresent what’s in this plan, we will call you out.” To that end, here are 10 promises of Obamacare that have already been broken.
1. “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.”
- Millions of Americans have lost and will lose their current coverage due to Obamacare.
- 4.7 million reported health insurance cancellations or changes of existing policies in 32 states.
2. “[T]hat means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”
- Many Americans might not be able to keep their current doctor without paying extra.
- Many plans offered on Obamacare’s exchanges have very limited provider networks.
3. “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”
- Premiums for people purchasing coverage in the individual market have significantly increased in a majority of states.
- Family premiums for those with employer-based coverage have increased by an average of $2,976 from 2009 to 2013.
4. “[F]or the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”
- Obamacare imposes new benefit mandates on those with employer-sponsored coverage—a majority of Americans.
- Coverage mandates are leading to higher premiums and companies changing their plans to adapt to them.
5. “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”
- Obamacare contains 18 separate tax hikes, fees, and penalties, many of which heavily impact the middle class.
- Among the taxes that will hit the middle class are the individual mandate tax, the medical device tax, and new penalties and limits on health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts.
Did you know that Humana was the only company that we checked out, when we lived in Wisconsin, that refused both of us? Yep. Humana. Why? Pre-existing conditions. Neither of which was a detriment to our well being, basically, because both were under control. One of mine happened to be a misdiagnosis, but that’s beside the point. There were other companies, doing business in the state, that didn’t have a major problem, they just tack on a rider that says they won’t cover anything related to the condition. Um…well…ok…which is why we had to pay, out of pocket, for my TKR. Did you know the hospital cut the bill in half because they didn’t have to deal with the insurance bureaucracy?
If people were allowed to shop around, across state lines, I can be pretty sure than there would be a lot more companies that would take pre-existing conditions, and prices would be competitive. Since some idiot decided that unless a particular company had an office in the state in which you live, you couldn’t have a policy with them. I learned that when I called to change my address after we moved to Tennessee. The guy I spoke to had to check to see if I would be able to keep my policy with their company. We both agreed that was absurd, and also agreed that the government needs to get out of the insurance business. Since moving to Tennessee, my rates have practically doubled, mostly in the last 3 years…since that ridiculous bill was signed, and the items covered have been decreased. I now have riders on my policy that have NOTHING to do with any pre-existing condition. When asked, the company tells me they are complying with Obama’s interference with my coverage. Yay me! So, now, if I get a bladder infection, which I’ve never had a real issue with, no tests, or any care due to said infection, will be covered. One more idiocy, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama and his minions. My policy will only cover 50% of any treatment, so I get a royal kick out of those complaining that their new policy only covers 70%. Wanna swap?
To say that Obama, once again, lied to the American people would just be repeating myself, and so many others, even if the diehards, like Juan Williams, refuse to accept reality. Yes, there are companies who DO accept pre-existing conditions. Some will even cough up some limited payment, although mine isn’t one of them. Thanks to Obamadontcare, many are now losing the policies that covered their illnesses, and will be without any coverage at all, because they can’t afford what Obama KNOWS what they need. Yes, he is most definitely full of caca de toro!
People are not only losing their coverage, they are losing their doctors, their hospitals, and their money. This whole fiasco is not about a website, built by Michelle’s buddies, that doesn’t work and has no security. This is about the control of your life, and well being. Those losing coverage who have cancer will likely die. And after all, isn’t that the point? Get rid of those who are a drain on the system?
The elderly will suffer the most, and die first, thanks to the lack of care that will be offered. Those with diseases like cancer are going to be at a loss. No coverage, no ability to pay the exorbitant costs of treatment. So what, supposedly, Obamadontcare was going to fix, has just made the entire system worse. Doctors will not be participating in this non-care system. Those who don’t retire, will take cash only, which, in truth, will drive the cost of actual care DOWN.
None of this has ever been about health care. This is all about control. It’s time we take back control of our lives that has been stolen by the Democrats in Congress and the White House. If we don’t, there will be even MORE intrusion, and that is NOT what Americans are all about!
How to Help Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a health problem.
Contrary to President Obama’s warnings about health care in America, health insurance isn’t impossible for everyone who just raised a hand.
The President spoke—and still speaks—about Obamacare solving the problem of pre-existing conditions that have hindered health insurance for some people. Without Obamacare, he says, these people would be left out in the cold.
In 2011, the Obama Administration suggested that as many as 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions were “at risk” and “could be denied coverage” without Obamacare’s massive changes in America’s insurance markets.
That’s an emotional—and false—claim.
The deeper we dig, the more CRAP comes floating up to the surface!
Now, I’ll admit, when I read the original bill, I saw nothing about the increase in the minimum wage. Either it was added later, or I just completely missed it. It’s possible…that’s a long freakin’ bill, and not exactly exciting reading. Angry reading, but not exciting. And those just now snapping out of their Obama stupor can’t say they weren’t warned, but alas, when you have a messiah that tells you what he wants you to know, some folks just suck it up. Kind of like Satan. Gets ya hooked with pretty promises, and reals ya in, and it’s all over!
I have ranted many times about raising the minimum, every time the issue comes up, but some folks just can’t do simple math. Now, once again, it raises it’s ugly head, not only through the tools of the unions, and their ignorant protests, but through that piece of garbage that is supposedly about health care, but is not.
I’m going to TRY to put this in a way that even Bob Beckel can understand.
You have 5 employees at your small fast food joint, not one of those big ones, like McDonald’s. You are just a very small place in a small town, with some regulars who frequent your joint cuz they like the food, like the atmosphere, and the prices are good. A couple of your employees have been with you a long time, and make more than minimum wage, because they worked hard, and earned the raises. Since you trust these long time employees, you’ve made one a manager, and are thinking about opening another little joint, and making the other long time employee the manager of that little place. The others are kids, mostly part time, working to help pay for their education, or to buy a car, or whatever reason kids have these days to want to work. An ethic, perhaps? One can hope.
You’ve been providing your full time employees with HC, out of the goodness of your heart, not because it was required. They pay a little, you pay a little. Now, you find out the policy you had for your little business is being canceled because it doesn’t meet what Obama & crew doesn’t believe it meets the minimum standards (whose standards?), and what they offer is something you just can’t afford. Since you are so small, you aren’t involved in the illegal mandate, thankfully. However, if they decide to raise the minimum wage across the board, you are most definitely affected. Not only will you not be able to provide your trusted, long time employees with the health care they depended on, you will now have to let one of your part time kids go. The idea of opening a second little place is going down the tubes.
Why? Well, every time they decide to raise the minimum wage, which was NEVER meant to be a ‘living wage’, the cost of EVERY THING goes up. The price of the products you buy from your vendors goes up. Now, you can eat the cost, and cut your profit margin, which is what pays your personal bills, like mortgage, utilities, maybe a car payment, but since you aren’t big fancy place, you likely are still driving that 10 year old vehicle, the needs some work, that you really can’t afford right now. Unfortunately, you are also going to have to raise the prices on your menu. Your regulars will grumble a bit, even though they understand the reasoning. Since you are also short handed, the service will suffer, and won’t be what your customers have come to expect. Those workers still with you become stressed, and occasionally short with the folks. Stress will do that. They are working longer hours to make up for the loss of the person you had to let go.
The two part time employees will get their government wage increase, but those who have been with you the longest won’t see an extra dime in their paychecks. Well, except for the money they use to pay towards their healthcare. However, they need HC for their families, maybe a single mom with 2 kids? So, they have to go to the non working Obamadontcare website, and eventually, end up, after much hassle, with a policy she can’t afford, but needs for her kids. Therefore, she is actually making less money than she was before, and the stress of having to work more hours, pay more for HC, pay more for day care, due to the minimum wage increase, and still have to pay for rent, and all the other bills, she finally gives up, and quits. AFDC, or whatever they call welfare these days, has one more participant, and added to the unemployment rolls.
You have one less employee, putting even more strain on your business. Your regulars don’t come in so much any more, due to the higher prices, and the harried servers. Business is going down the tubes. Your once upon a time dream of opening a second business, to serve the small community is gone. Poof!
Now, you are considering shutting down your once thriving business due to the increase in the financial strain, and the lack of business. What’s the point? You have 3 employees left, who aren’t happy, fewer customers than ever to the point that some days, you wonder why you even bother to open the doors at all.
Then comes the decision. The very difficult decision. Your dream is gone. The government has taken it away. (I haven’t even mentioned all the regulations that continually get imposed.) It’s time to shut it down. You are going broke to the point even you are finding it difficult to make your house payments, much less have any small luxuries, like cable TV, or that cell phone. You have a land line, so you think maybe you can’t afford to make that extra payment. You’ve already put a huge dent in your savings, just to keep things going, and the thought of your kids going to college is gone. You’re having to put your little 3 bedroom ranch house up for sale, and pray someone will buy it for a decent price, although likely, no where near what you paid.
One more business closes it’s doors. Five more people on the unemployment rolls. Five more people turning to the government for a little cash assistance, some food stamps, and trying to get on medicaid so they can get some, albeit lousy, health care.
THIS is what raising the minimum wage, and Obamadontcare, does to small businesses. This is your government at work!
We Bet You Haven’t Heard This About Obamacare
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Another push is underway to raise the minimum wage. But what you probably haven’t heard is that Obamacare has already done that.
The plan on the table in Congress would raise the federal minimum wage above $10 an hour (which is higher than all existing state rates). Obamacare’s mandate on employers, however, is already scheduled to raise the hourly cost of hiring a full-time worker past $10 an hour.
The idea behind a minimum wage is to help low-income workers. But Obamacare’s mandates will hurt the job prospects of these very workers—and raising the federal minimum wage would further limit the number of jobs available.
Yep! I’m sick to death of, not just Obamadontcare, but of Obama himself. He speaks, I cringe. I know it’s just going to be more BS spewing out of his mouth, and I’m really tired of it! This is a failed ‘law’, a failed website, and a failed presidency!
Did you ever see the movie They Live? People had to put on special glasses to see the truth. Well, now it’s the opposite. People need to take OFF their rose colored glasses to see it, and it ain’t pretty!
Obama has been trying to put lipstick on this pig, but yep….it’s still a pig! Pretty speeches to adoring droolers won’t make it change. It’s time for Obama and crew to admit the truth! When, or should I say IF, Obama finally signs up for this lipsticked pig, will it cover HIS mental health issues? Cuz word is, he really IS nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake! I’m inclined to agree, cuz you know…liberalism IS a mental disorder!
Sick of Obamacare? We’ve Got Something Different
Amy Payne – The Foundry
The salesman in chief is back on the road.
President Obama will be spending the month of December once again explaining Obamacare to the American people. Because if he explains it one more time, maybe people will like it?
We expect these holiday greetings will go over about as well as a three-year-old fruitcake. Obama’s been selling the law for about that long, yet public opinion has turned against it.
The President said yesterday that he’s “learned not to make wild promises” anymore about the rollout of the health care law. But it’s clear he’s not going to stop making wild claims about Obamacare—and Obamacare’s critics.
Who Wants Repeal?
As we enjoy the holiday season, the President and congressional Democrats intend to warn the country that conservatives want to repeal Obamacare.
But according to a new poll, so do 50 percent of likely U.S. voters.
That’s right—there is broad support for repealing Obamacare and starting over with health care reform. So what happens then?
What Happens After Repeal?
President Obama and his allies have made no secret of their plans: They cast Obamacare skeptics as The Ones Who Want to Take You Back to the Health Care Dark Ages.
Unfortunately for Obama’s public relations push, conservatives have no such intention. Repealing Obamacare—and saving Americans from the law’s woes—is only the beginning of what we would like to see in American health care. It would merely get this monstrosity out of the way so that truly helpful reforms could begin.
Obama said yesterday that critics just want to “go back to the status quo” and that they “haven’t presented an alternative.”
This is laughable. Obamacare is hardly the only game in town. Heritage experts—and many other policy researchers—have been offering health reform ideas for decades. Heritage has specifically outlined an alternative to Obamacare.
So while the White House spends December selling Americans the same old stale (and failing) ideas, we’ll be looking forward (to borrow an Obama buzzword). We’ll be highlighting the ways Congress could do health care reform better—and what it would mean to you and your family.
You might have noticed, things seem to be running smoothly after the big upgrade by Bluehost. As best I can tell, no glitches from this end. I suppose I could have posted something last night, but ya know… I just didn’t feel like it!
I took a side trip to Wally World down in Corinth, and was quite surprised that there were no where near the number of people I expected, since this is the ‘shopping season’. Jeeez…I hate that term! This is NOT a shopping season, but we have sure turned it into one. This is the CHRISTmas season! Let’s get that RIGHT! Sheesh!
Anyway, I had to pick up some non fridge items to send to Afghanistan, and my latest ‘craving’…marshmallows, so I figured while I was in the area, why not! Besides, the tax is lower down there. Sadly, they have a state income tax, so that ruled out Mississippi when we decided to leave the frozen lands of Wisconsin. I suppose it all works out in the end, one way or another.
Good news from my foray into MS… my battery is good for another 2 years and 3 months. Heh. The bad news, I’ll have to go back down there again in another 3 months to make sure it’s still working. Apparently, I only had two incidents show up on my ticker readout, and they were fast beating. Told the nurse that’s likely when I was raking leaves. Heh. She agreed. Usually, there are incident of my dadburn heart stopping, which is why I need that internal mp3 player. The pumper is only 60% functional without it. sigh… If it’s not one thing, it’s another, eh? The heart, the spine issues, the nasty disease….oh well! I woke up this morning, and for that, I am grateful….to God!
So, while I was driving back from Corinth, I got to listen to the beginning of Mark Levin’s show. I just love him. Take no bull, says what he means, and gives a major slap down to whoever needs one! Ya gotta hear the show…at least his beginning monologue!
HealthCare.gov is racist! Heh! Just HAD to share this with ya!
Speaking of Obamacare, and seriously, lately, does anyone ever talk about anything else these days? Well, Michelle’s friends who ‘built’ this fiasco didn’t include any security into the site! Piece of advice, DO NOT EVEN TYPE THE WEB ADDRESS INTO YOUR COMPUTER! Jeeez! More than 3 years, and they still have a failed site, with no security? Let me ask….how long did it take for Amazon to create their site, and get it up and running, handling MILLIONS of customers, around the world? Don’t you think it would have been a good idea for the gubmint to contact the REAL experts, and get their advice, instead doing the crony thing, which is what Obama did in hiring a loser, FOREIGN company! Logic would say to shut down the site, and get it fixed before anyone has their identity stolen, and their lives ruined! But then, there is no logic in this administration, and they are spending OUR money to push for Obamacare, in another campaign to promote this disaster! Bottom line: They don’t give a damn! A REAL man, a REAL leader, would admit this was a mistake, and take responsibility. But then, we don’t have one of those in the White House, do we.
Please, for the love of all that’s holy, work to get the Dems out of the Senate, take more of their seats in the House. These people are going to kill me, and many like me, if we don’t get this Obama BS revoked! Want the problem solved? Allow people to buy insurance across state lines! Can you imagine the competition? Costs will decrease, and guess what! You don’t have to pay for something you don’t need….like maternity care…and the BIG prize…you won’t be forced to pay for the murder of children. Now, wouldn’t THAT be a novel concept? :? This idea has been proposed many times by those on the right, my own Congress critter, Mz Marsha has repeatedly introduce bills to do just that, but hey…the insurance lobbies are all about the big bucks, and they don’t want more competition.
So, the problem isn’t all Obama and his minions. It’s the lobbyists, and THEIR minions in both houses of Congress. They no longer work for us. They work for whoever donates the most money to their campaign coffers, who will reassure their re-election so they can take even MORE control of our lives. Ever get the feeling that something is SERIOUSLY out of whack? Yeah….me too!
Liberals laughed at the House in 2011 when they read the U.S. Constitution on the floor. There was a darn good reason for them to do that, but it really didn’t matter in the long run. The Constitution is just a piece of paper, written by old white guys a long time ago, and means nothing in their world. Well, it means a LOT in my world, and it should in yours as well. If we don’t get this country back on track, the way the Founders, you know, those old white guys, intended, we won’t have a country to get on any track but the one headed into the cesspool…the direction it is heading now!
I suppose all our concentrating on the Obamadontcare fiasco makes D.C. think we’ve all forgotten about the other scandals that have plagued this administration. Well, guess what! We have NOT forgotten! We well remember the murdered Americans in Benghazi. We haven’t forgotten the IRS targeting conservative groups. We remember OBAMA’S shut down of the government, his arrogance, the media pointing fingers at the WRONG people, and the disrespect shown to our greatest heroes. No, we have NOT forgotten!
