Obamacare continues to implode, one can listen to cable network
gab fest anchors and their endless panels and guests from "both
sides of the political spectrum" throw around the word subsidies
as if it means nothing. True, while sometimes monitoring Megyn
Kelly, a lawyer on FOX, she will throw in something like "we
pay for it". But, not enough time is being given to that catastrophic
h-bomb to the economy nor do any of them discuss the issue of
equal protection under the law which I covered in a recent column:
New Lawsuits Should be Equal Protection Under the Law. If
you haven't read that column, please take the time to do so
because those so-called Obamacare subsidies are nothing but
another massive Ponzi scheme that WILL finally bankrupt what's
left of the middle class in this country.
middle class Americans, with incomes much lower than the family
of four in New Hampshire, will get decimated. An analysis by
the Times found those in the middle class may have to pay nearly
20% of their income on Obamacare. To put that in perspective,
"experts consider health insurance unaffordable once it exceeds
10 percent of annual income." Consider these examples:
60-year-old living in Polk County, in northwestern Wisconsin,
and earning $50,000 a year, for example, would have to spend
more than 19 percent of his income, or $9,801 annually, to buy
one of the cheapest plans available there. A person earning
$45,000 would qualify for subsidies and would pay about 5 percent
of his income, or $2,228, for an inexpensive plan."
of your income just for health care premiums. Oh, but it gets
better - a very important read:
know the concept behind this communist blueprint health care
scheme is to pull in young healthy bodies to pay for those who
can't afford custom health plans, the old and sick. A new generation
of slaves. However, the plan of the stinking Red in the White
House and his comrades isn't working out too well. It seems
not all the 20-somethings have their heads in pot smoke. Weighing
the options, they choose to pay the $87.00 fine - which by the
way, spikes each year thereafter. Oh, wait, it's a tax! So said
that joke of a Supreme Court Justice, John Roberts. No, wait,
Kathleen Sebelius, head of the unconstitutional HHS who pimps
shamelessly for the usurper in the White house says it's a fine:
it was a fine, then it was a tax, and now it's a fine again
the definition of Obamacare changes depending on the politically
expedient position of any given moment. It couldn't be called
a tax in the beginning because people don't like taxes. It couldn't
be a fine during the SCOTUS hearings because then it'd be unconstitutional.
But, alas, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
was on with Jon Stewart calling the law a fine once again."
husband and I are not affected by the Obamacare disaster because
we are military retirees who pay our own premiums through TriCare
Prime. But once again, the thieves in the U.S. Congress decided
they have the power to steal the fruits of our labor to pay
for someone else's health care - on top of being forced with
a gun to our heads to pay Medicare (which I DO NOT want to be
forced into). How many more personal responsibilities are we
going to be forced to pay for a hundred million other people?
Not to mention Medicaid on the state level.
the endless stream of propaganda from socialists and Marxists
in the Outlaw Congress and the old media, no one in this country
has any constitutional or "civil right" to health care. It is
no different than buying car, burial or pet insurance. All three
of which I have, but would never demand you pay my premiums.
I wish everyone in the U.S. could have health care coverage?
Yes - IF they choose to get some sort of plan or like millions
of young, healthy adult aged Americans, they choose not to or
purchase a plan tailored to suit their particular circumstances.
That whole traitorous bunch in the Outlaw Congress decided while
being cheered on by Marxist heroes like Bill & Hillary Clinton,
to simply crap on the Constitution again and here we are with
a mess the likes few of us have ever seen.
same rotten SOBs who destroyed the finest health care delivery
system in the world - the U.S. Congress. It all started
back in 1973:
should remember that HMOs did not arise because of free-market
demand, but rather because of government mandates. The HMO Act
of 1973 requires all but the smallest employers to offer their
employees HMO coverage, and the tax code allows businesses —
but not individuals — to deduct the cost of health insurance
premiums. The result is the illogical coupling of employment
and health insurance, which often leaves the unemployed without
needed catastrophic coverage.
many in Congress are happy to criticize HMOs today, the public
never hears how the present system was imposed upon the American
people by federal law. As usual, government intervention in
the private market failed to deliver the promised benefits and
caused unintended consequences, but Congress never blames itself
for the problems created by bad laws. Instead, we are told more
government — in the form of “universal coverage” — is the answer.
But government already is involved in roughly two-thirds of
all health care spending, through Medicare, Medicaid, and other
programs." And: Blame
Congress for HMO's by Twila Brase, a registered nurse and
President of the Citizens' Council on Health Care & former
Congressman and physician, Dr. Ron Paul."
June 24, 2009, before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce,
Science and Transportation, Potter testified, "The average family
doesn't understand how Wall Street's dictates determine whether
they will be offered coverage, whether they can keep it, and
how much they'll be charged for it. But, in fact, Wall Street
plays a powerful role. The top priority of for-profit companies
is to drive up the value of their stock. Stocks fluctuate based
on companies' quarterly reports, which are discussed every three
months in conference calls with investors and analysts. On these
calls, Wall Street investors and analysts look for two key figures:
earnings per share and the medical-loss ratio, or medical 'benefit
ratio,' as the industry now terms it. That is the ratio between
what the company actually pays out in claims and what it has
left over to cover sales, marketing, underwriting and other
administrative expenses and, of course," Potter testified, "profits."
we have to remember how many whores in the Outlaw Congress are
bought and paid for by the medical insurance industry as well
as being owned by the big pharmaceutical companies. BIG money.
BIG betrayal of the American people. Too bad the American people
couldn't get their heads out of rectal darkness long enough
to understand what was being done to them the past four decades.
Instead, tens of millions of Americans chased trivial pursuits
and bought into socialist rhetoric drummed into their heads
by their incumbent. Well, here we are and now those same Americans
are suffering right along with those of us who opposed the unconstitutional
hijacking of the health care industry.
the horse manure coming out of talking heads, stupid economists
and professional politicians, America's economy is not on the
road to recovery. Americans are once again going into heavy
debt just to stay afloat each month. With some 24 MILLION full
time workers unemployed and another 90 MILLION out of the work
force for any number of reasons and 49 MILLION on food stamps,
just who is going to pay the TRILLIONS in subsidies about to
drown all of us?
about those making more than $170,000 a year who are going to
rape you and me to subsidize their health care premiums?
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), whose congressional salary is
$174,000 a year, said he has purchased health insurance on the
District of Columbia small business Obamacare exchange, and
will accept a taxpayer-funded subsidy to help him pay for that
insurance...."CNSNews.com asked: "Why do you think
it's the right thing to do to accept that subsidy? Some people
are criticizing that?
"I opposed the bill from the beginning, but this is the health--this
is a--for me, even with the subsidy that we've had before which
they've ruled is proper...the Office of Personnel Management
said it was appropriate to, in effect, continue the subsidy
that we had, which is what we've always had. But in addition
I would say that it will cost members--most members--more.”
accepting the subsidy, Rubio joins Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.),
who told CNSNews.com there's "no question" that members of Congress
are entitled to taxpayer help in purchasing their health insurance.
Rangel said he considers the subsidies to be part of Congress'
Joe Barton (R-Texas) recently told C-SPAN's "Washington Journal"
that as a member of Congress, he'll be forced to get his own
insurance through the Obamacare exchanges, and he thinks taxpayers
should continue helping him pay his premiums."
Some members of the Outlaw Congress have refused the subsidy;
see link above. NO WHERE in the U.S. Constitution does it give
Congress or OPM the authority to steal the fruits of anyone's
labor to pay for someone else's health care premiums. Not to
mention this unconstitutional rape and if you think it's not
coming, think again. It will be the same old justification used
in 2008- "too big to fail".
insurers understand that they're going to be completely ruined,"
Krauthammer said on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace. "And
what's going to happen as a result of this? There's only one
way out, a huge government bailout of the insurers is waiting
at the end of next year."
let us not forget this group because as I said in my column,
gunny - I have to change my diaper, you and I are going
to be unconstitutionally fleeced to pay for the consequences

research has demonstrated the LGBT community is disproportionately
susceptible to a wide variety of health problems aside from
HIV/AIDS, including mental illness and suicide, alcoholism,
drug addiction and substance abuse.
a slide presentation titled “Out2Enroll: The Affordable Care
Act and the LGBT Communities,” prepared for a Sept. 12 White
House briefing on Obamacare and the LGBT community, the Johns
Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health counted 8 million
Americans as gay, lesbian or bisexual. With another 700,000
regarded as transgender, Johns Hopkins estimates about 2.84
percent of the U.S. population is LGBT. Since the rise of the
HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Centers for Disease Control
studies have shown that more than 60 percent of all HIV/AIDS
infections 63 percent in 2010 are caused by homosexual acts
workers? No, they're whores who prostitute their bodies for
money. How many moms and dads would like to see their daughter's
career choice as a "sex worker"? Their illegal profession (except
Nevada) is exceedingly high risk.
two months now we've heard all about the sticker shock people
are experiencing up front and personal. Their premiums now shooting
up double, triple or more. Not to mention huge deductibles in
the thousands. For a family struggling who paid $500 a month
for a family health plan to now come up with $1100 a month for
a health plan with provisions they neither want or need, that
extra $600 bux a month in disposable income is now gone. No
extra money to put into the local economy. If they don't have
the extra money and qualify for the fruits of someone else's
labor in subsidies, that someone - you and me - is going to
get slammed in more taxes. The result: Less money into savings
or to put food on the table, never mind recreational expenditures.
now we're only seeing the beginning of the tsunami. Just wait
until those whopping 150 MILLION who have health plans through
their employer kicks in and then we will see a massive financial
bomb go off that will rock this country. Think I'm exaggerating?
McDonald's employs roughly 300,000 in the U.S. China (Wal) Mart
1.2 million in the U.S. The majority of those jobs are minimum
wage. The jackals in the Outlaw Congress think they can force
employers to not only provide health care (which
they cannot), but force those employers and employees into
a government run taxing scheme. Where will the BILLIONS come
from for subsidies for all those minimum wage workers forced
into a plan? You and me.
about small businesses - the backbone of the American economy?
You can take money to the bank (if you have any left) that small
businesses will be devastated by massive increases in 2014:
Wilson, an office manager in Iowa, figured she would lock in
a good deal on health care coverage for her five-person biofuels
company by renewing its policy before Obamacare kicked in for
2014. But she balked when her agent came back with a 81 percent
rate hike, anyway."
has been a heated opponent of the health law. He refused to
accept $100 billion in federal funding to expand Texas’ Medicaid
program under Obamacare, which could have helped 1.5 million
poor Texans afford basic health benefits. As recently as April,
Perry essentially called the expansion a joke. “Seems to me
April Fool's Day is the perfect day to discuss something as
foolish as Medicaid expansion, and to remind everyone that Texas
will not be held hostage by the Obama administration's attempt
to force us into the fool's errand of adding more than a million
Texans to a broken system,” said Perry. Now, Perry is seeking
federal dollars for Texas’ Medicaid program anyway."
MILLION in Obamacare funding? $100 BILLION in federal funding?
What $100 MILLION? What $100 BILLION? The treasury is
empty. Overdrawn $17 TRILLION dollars. That $100 MILLION
OR BILLION will be more borrowed debt. Those
poor 1.5 million Texans already get Medicaid in this state paid
for with our tax dollars. Now the criminal syndicate in DC wants
to force more taxes at the federal level to fund this grossly
unconstitutional disaster? They're nothing more than modern
Hill Republicans are not surprised by a new study that suggests
more people will make emergency room visits under ObamaCare,
not fewer as President Obama and other supporters of the law
argue. The Harvard University study recently published in the
journal Science shows that emergency room visits increased by
40 percent for those who received Medicaid when Oregon expanded
the program in 2008.
these higher costs don't come as a surprise to many, it has
left us wondering why do Democrats call it the Affordable Care
Act if the law doesn't lower the cost of heath care,” said Michigan
Republican Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means
a mess that isn't going to be fixed even if the official web
site ever works right, which it never will while Americans are
having their identity stolen; yes, it's already happened and
will continue. Republicans are allowing themselves to be forced
into playing the substitution game: Mouthpieces for the Democratic/Communist
Party USA and the ones who serve in the Outlaw Congress continue
the same old propaganda about Republicans have nothing to replace
it with nothing because that IS constitutional. The primaries
begin in March; the first being here in Texas. Republican incumbents
will all talk about Obamacare. They will promise to get rid
of Obamacare if you just vote for them in the primary and then
in November. Think that will happen with dirtbags like John
Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell or Raul Ryan just to name
a few of the "old establishment" crooks and thieves? Think again.
It won't happen. They only want your vote.
They want to use you like they do every election cycle.
the GOP "leadership" talks about is a replacement instead of
the constitutional solution. For the love of God, when are conservatives
going to stop buying their lies? With BILLIONS (debt) already
wasted on Obamacare, the establishment 'old guard' Republicans
will come up with politically acceptable excuses instead of
just outright repealing the entire "law" in the house and senate
(if they take it in Nov) and then over ride the fraud in the
Absolute and complete insanity in the District of Criminals.
Republicans remember one thing about Obamacare it should be
this: If the Republicans would have challenged Barry Soetoro's
alleged win in 2008 as an ineligible candidate, there
would be no Obamacare. Instead, ALL of them including
Ron Paul, sat there mute while the biggest fraud against the
American people (besides the Federal Reserve Banking Act of
1913 and the Sixteenth and Seventeenth non ratified amendments)
was taking place. They allowed the electoral college vote to
stand. The spineless poltroons did the same thing in January
2013 and we the people are paying the price for their cowardice.
Pay Back for Ignoring Obama's Ineligibility
but look how profitable it's been for talking heads on "conservative"
talk radio, FOX and Republican incumbents! Why FOX's ratings
are at the top and who and what has been the main cash cow for
years? Barry Soetoro (Obama) and his "signature legislation",
Obamacare. GOP incumbents have and continue to milk it for campaign
donations with more empty promises.
states are fighting back and those leading the charge in their
legislatures should be commended for standing up for their sovereignty
and their citizens:
that will not stop the Gestapo (IRS) from stealing the fruits
of your labor in those states to fund the Obamacare monstrosity
through withholding taxes.
states in this Union opted to join the further Sovietization
of America with the so called insurance exchanges and Obamacare.
36 states refused to stand up for the U.S. Constitution and
tell the Outlaw Congress: No, we will not be part of your illegal
taxing scheme. The states are under no obligation to participate
in Obamacare; that is a legal fact that cannot be denied.
Democratic/Communist Party USA along with John Boehner and other
RINOs are feverishly working to give liars, cheats and thieves
- illegal aliens- citizenship. Suck them into the Obamacare
nightmare. Add another 30-40 MILLION and see what happens to
that beast. What percentage do you think will be "eligible for
subsidies"? 25 MILLION? How long do you think it will take to
run up another $100 TRILLION in debt under Obamacare? Not long.
Where will the money come from? There isn't enough even if the
IRS confiscated 75% of your income in taxes; it will end up
just like the ones below.
