Anything to Save It!

(A Blast from the past…)

Anything but Repeal It!

The Democrats (And Establishment RINO’s) want Any “Fix” that keeps Obama Care on the Books…

President Clinton is the latest to offer up a “fix” to Obama Care by suggesting the Current President should champion a change in the law to allow Citizens to keep their current Health Insurance if they like it. “Allow”…

“Allow” me to bypass the obvious question as to who do these people think they are to “Allow” me to do anything… and get to the bigger issue at hand.

The Destruction of the Health Insurance Companies is analogous to Cortez burning his ships when he landed on the New World.

(Realize, the Government may tolerate a few Health Insurance companies to exist so long as they can be completely controlled via regulations… the Fascist flavor of Socialism.  It is what We have “Allowed” these people to do in almost every Industry.  This brand of Fascism is why the EPA and OSHA exist.  Without these agencies Insurance Companies, not to mention Self Interest, would be the mechanism for spreading Best Practices.  Get the connection?  Do you suddenly see why “Big Insurance” is the enemy of the Left?  They represent competition to Big Government.  Therefore the Left believes They must be removed, or at a minimum diminished to the point of uselessness.  And we’re witnessing it happen as I tap this out.)

There is no, nor will there be, any “fix” to the complete and total destruction of the Health Insurance Industry we are watching before our eyes. The only solution to what is an ill-advised attempt of Government to wrest control over 1/6th of the Economy while once again removing all Free-Market Competition, Voluntary Exchange and your Right to Choose is a complete Repeal of this Disastrous Law.

Anything else is simply an effort to preserve the Big Government, aka Socialist, gains achieved during the first two years of Democrat Control over The United States.

Anything else is just buying time while you “Get Used” to Government telling you what you must do when it comes to purchasing Health Insurance.  Then what you eat, and drive, and activities you pass time doing etc.  Because it all has to do with your Health.  The only “fix” Liberals want when it comes to Health Care is enough time for you to get your mind right and accept that Government is the Answer.

But they Need you to scream for them to “Fix” it.  Which is why they all seem to be standing around watching the Health System Implode.  An Implosion they caused.  All they’re waiting for is for you to blame the Insurance Companies and beg Government to step in… with Single Payer or what is otherwise known as Government Run Health Care.

It has been the goal from the beginning.  It is still the goal.

And, Once the deed is done there can be no turning back.

Social Security was supposed to be a temporary Insurance Safety Net.  Temporary… But given enough time you folks began counting on it and decided it should be permanent.  So permanent in fact that the politicians took your cue and spent all the money collected for it on other things because they knew you would never let that stream of income to Government go away.  But they didn’t spend it on important things, things we could have done without.  They wasted it.  They allowed their friends to have it.  They squandered it.  Because who needs discipline when the money just keeps rolling in?  And You gave them permission.  You are Still giving them permission.

This is no different.

Don’t let this happen again.

Demand Complete Repeal!

When Democrats stand up and say “Republicans have never liked this law and just want to get rid of it!”, you should stand up and say “You’re Right!”  “We Warned You!”  “In Fact, We Warned You with Plenty of Time not to let this Happen in the First Place!”  “Are You Listening?”

All this was bad from the beginning and it needs to be done away with, not preserved with some “fix” created to placate you until you “see the light” and concede your Freedoms to those in Washington.

It is no mystery that I’m not a fan of about 80% of the Republican Party.  But it is a Party that must move to Repeal this hideous legislation.  It is a Party that needs to step around the likes of John McCain, Chris Christy and Lindsey Graham to save this country from the mistakes of Democratic Socialists world over.  If there has ever been a rallying point, or issue, of our time it is this.  We were not there to fight against what we now know to be huge wastes of money and drags on productivity of the past.  But we are here now.

The push to Socialize Medicine must be stopped.

And in the future, Anyone who even suggests such a Scheme should be disqualified from serious consideration when it comes to holding power in this Country.

ObamaCare Penalizes the People It Claims to Help

ObamaCare: picking on poor people because, why not?

By Logan Albright

posted 061314

Remember how ObamaCare was going to make health care affordable and accessible for everyone? Remember how we were told we had to vote for a government takeover of one sixth of the American economy to level the playing field and make things fair for the nation’s poor? Remember how the rich had to be forced to pay their fair share for the common good?

Yeah, you can go ahead and forget all that. Not only hasn’t it happened, the actual results have been the direct opposite of what was promised.

A new report from the Congressional Budget Office reveals that the yearly penalty from ObamaCare’s individual mandate is expected to fall on 4 million Americans. Of those, 1 million are classified as low-income, and 200,000 are actually below the poverty line.

You read that right. The massive health insurance law that was ostensibly designed to make the health care market more fair and equal is actually imposing an additional tax on a million low-income people who can’t afford the inflated premiums they are legally required to buy. As is so often the case, big government is actively punishing the people it claims to want to help.

The CBO report also estimated that 30 million Americans would still be uninsured by 2016. For those of us who understand human behavior and incentives, this comes as no surprise. The fundamental flaw in central planning is the fiction that people, who have free will and minds of their own, can be manipulated by policy like pieces in a puzzle, to behave in ways that “society” deems optimal.

Of course, people don’t work that way, and studies like this one reveal the fallacy in treating individuals like numbers. As much as progressives would like it to be otherwise, you can’t plug human behavior into a bunch of fancy equations and expect a certain outcome. You can’t mandate health insurance on 300 million people and expect them to just roll over and comply.

Barack Obama has always been hobbled by his tendency towards micromanagement and his idea that societal problems can be “solved” like a Rubik’s Cube by a particularly clever operator. When 10,000 pages of regulations fail to get people to behave the way he wants them to, his answer is always another 10,000 pages.

To the rest of the nation, not chained to the ideological underpinnings of government health care, the fact that subsidized premiums provided on the health insurance exchanges have been vastly higher than promised was only to be expected. Individuals all over the country have been experiencing sticker shock as their health insurance bills skyrocket—that is, if they are not dropped from their plans outright. Only committed central planners seemed surprised that the imposition of a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy on the health insurance market would result in higher costs.

Big government programs never help the people they claim to help. They always end up rewarding well-heeled special interests and Beltway insiders instead of the truly needy.

Still, it’s rare to have so overt an attack on the poor. Most other social programs do indirect harm through limiting opportunities or prohibiting productive behavior with trumped up claims of “consumer protection.” ObamaCare attacks the livelihood of low-income families outright.

All the talk of amending or “fixing” ObamaCare is misguided in the extreme. The only logical course of action for dealing with a monster that openly, remorselessly hurts people is to kill it, and give freedom a chance.


Crying for Oversight of the VA

Is like telling a Judge that you are Going to Start overseeing your actions after being caught committing a crime.

The Veterans Administration IS the Government… every level of the Veterans Administration IS oversight.

It astonished many of us that all the stories of poor facilities and treatment which were regular news offerings for 50-years suddenly disappeared when President Obama wanted to Force Socialized Medicine on us.

It was like Magic.

And that’s why this VA story of “secret” waiting lists and the subsequent cover-up of the process Matters.

The Veterans Administration is the Shining Example of what is in store for all of us with the maturation of Obama Care… and that is exactly why the truth of Government Run Health Care had to be suppressed.

I would venture to say that those of you reading this knew the truth… for decades… and we were shouting it as loud as we could.  But the cover-up was not meant for us, it was meant to hide the realities the rest of us had gleaned over years and years of experience from the useful idiots.  The Administration knew full well that they were going to Force Obama Care on the Nation damn the consequences.

And that is also why the Leftists in this country will be fully absent during the exploration of Veterans Dying while waiting for Medical Care.

It is also why we have not heard any news about the Famous Waiting Lists for Care in Canada over the last 6 years… or the Dysfunctional National Health Service in the UK…

The Liberals who consider themselves Mainstream-Objective Journalists, along with their “Objective” Liberal Editors, cannot allow themselves to present the realities associated with Single Payer Health Care here, or anywhere else, because it does nothing but get in the way of their Ideological Goals.

However, I have an issue with placing all the blame on Shinseki.  Doing so distracts from the Bigger Issue.

The horrors associated with the VA… the NSA… the IRS… Fast and Furious… Benghazi…

They are all IDEOLOGICALLY driven.

They are all Socialist/Marxist/Progressive/Liberal/Fascist/Leftist in Nature.

Make no mistake, the Order to create Secret Waiting Lists for our veterans to get care came from on high and was executed by myriad Federal Workers of Like Mind. They were instituted because the Left knew that they needed to meet certain metrics in order to prevent comparisons of delays and bureaucratic red tape interfering with Medical Care being applied to their Nationalized Scheme of Obama Care.

I have talked about Obama Care being the “Crown Jewel” of Socialism…

When something is so very important, perhaps even paramount, to your Ideology what are the lives of A Few Good Men?


Plouffing Obama Care

“The Law’s Working.  And this was a Seminal Achievement.”  – David Plouffe Former Obama Administrative Advisor

Well… if there was anything that needed some Plouffing to keep it up it’s Obama Care.

But that’s just part of the Grand Campaign that was supposed to start last July.

The cries have gone out from CNN to USA Today to say “It’s Totally Working!  Like Totally!  So You Can’t Repeal it Now!  It’s Un-Repealable because it Works So Good and stuff…  It’s Totally Awesome!”

Why are They doing this in the Face of Profound Mass Discontent?

Because the Repeal It crowd, of which I am a member, is Gaining Support…  not edging a majority mind you, because Hatred of this Socialist Scheme has had a Majority from the beginning… but edging to a Super Majority of Public Opinion and the outlook for those whose office is up for consideration this election cycle is Grim, at best.

The Democrats are afraid we might just be able to do it.  We might just be able to return our system of Health Care to the Worlds Finest as it used to be just months ago.

David Plouffe let it slip with a single word.  Seminal.

Definition of seminal (adj)

Bing Dictionary
  • sem·i·nal
  • [ sémmin’l ]
  1. influential: highly original and influential
  2. capable of development: containing an idea or set of ideas that forms a basis for later developments
  3. of semen or seeds: relating to, containing, or carrying semen or seeds

The Socialization of Medicine is certainly not Original but I’ll give it Influential.  But it’s the last two definitions that are most applicable here.  Obama Care was Never intended to work.  It was Never intended to function even remotely as promised.  Rather, The Oxymoron called The Affordable Care Act was designed as a seed, a starting point to get you to do what the Leftists have longed to do to America for decades.  It has Always been intended to set up the Insurance Companies for the Blame and create an outcry for Single Payer Government Run Health Care.  In real words… The Progressives wanted you to Scream for Socialized Medicine.

But it’s never the Ideas of Progressives…

The fact that Obama Care is such a profound Failure is being attributed to a failure in messaging… not the always present and predictable failure of Socialist Schemes which it is.

So… a New Campaign is afoot to convince you that your damned lying eyes are in fact lying.

Good is Bad, Bad is Good… The World is Upside Down.

The question you should be asking yourself over and over is; Why do Liberals have to Lie to us about what they want all the time?  Why?

I’ll tell you it’s because their ideas are terrible in every way and everywhere they have been tried including here in the United States.

They will tell you it’s because you’re too stupid to know what’s best for you.

Either way, do you want these people making your decisions for you?

I don’t.

I’ll leave you with a little article in USA Today that was seemingly unrelated to Obama Care… which I think is the only reason it made it into today’s edition.

 The Inflated World of Internet Traffic – Michael Wolff, USA Today

Mr. Wolff makes the case that internet numbers are typically inflated and they may reflect roughly 10% of what they appear to reflect.  Uh-oh.

While many of us in the Media have known this for years… literally 15+ years… it cannot spell good news for the information we are about to find out about Obama Care interest and most importantly PAID ENROLLMENT.

So it has become imperative to convince you that the program is profoundly popular and all the numbers you’re about to see mean Nothing.

Your Damned Lying Eyes are Lying.

The Socialist will Never Stop.

It’s time to elect Individuals that are not just willing to stop the destruction of  what was once the Freest Country on the Face of the Earth, but ROLL BACK the Progressive Liberal Policies that have been implemented and have led us to this unfortunate point in the History of Man.

You Can’t Fix Stupid

Repeal it, Repeal it, Repeal it!
