Oct 30, 2013 Obamacare
The Obamacare rollout is a failure and millions of people are losing their insurance plans because those plans do not meet the requirements of the new law. Despite being told that they could keep their plans if they liked them, people are losing what they like and are being forced to have no insurance or to accept plans that cost a lot more and provide coverage that contains unwanted items.
Even though Barack Obama promised people that they could keep their plans if they liked them the truth is people who like their plans are not getting to keep them.
People are upset at this and believe that they were lied to and they would be right. Yes, it would be easy to say that Obama and the Democrats simply did not know and that might have merit since none of them read the bill before it was passed. Hell, Nancy Pelosi told us that they had to pass it to see what was in it.
Wouldn’t that be like being told you had to buy a house before you could look at it to see if it meets your needs?
In any event, information is creeping out and it tells of a regime that lied to our faces. Steny Hoyer, the worthless Congressman from Maryland, admitted that they [Democrats] knew that some people would not be allowed to keep their plans. His explanation is that the President failed to provide the caveat that you could keep your plan IF it met the Obamacare standard.
Hoyer contends that the promise that you could keep it if you liked it was not misleading. Hoyer believes the message from Obama was accurate.
So tell me Steny, how can you say it was an accurate message when millions of people are losing their coverage? Only in DC can such an obvious issue befuddle a politician. Hoyer is being a good little toady and spinning this turd as best he can but the fact is Obama LIED.
Yes Steny, Obama LIED. He was not accurate and he most assuredly was misleading because you all knew that people would lose their coverage.
You all also knew that any coverage offered would cost more and this is why the regime changed the function of the website so that people had to sign up and provide all their information BEFORE they could get a price. You all knew that if the price was up front people would close out the website and not sign up for Obamacare.
Democrats are trying to spin this by saying that people are being transitioned or that they are getting something better but the undeniable truth (OK, a Democrat will deny it) is that the regime knew people would lose their insurance and continued to lie to them stating they would not.
A report today indicates that thousands of Maryland residents could lose insurance because of Obamacare.
In true Obama style the White House is blaming insurance carriers.
It is interesting to me to see all the people who voted for Obama and who supported Obamacare calling in to shows or reporting in the papers that they lost their coverage. I love seeing them whine that they have to pay more and they love the idea of everyone having insurance as long as they are not paying for it out of their own pockets. Typical liberals; love to spend someone else’s money. Give everyone everything as long as they don’t have to foot the bill.
I am enjoying seeing people who are waking up to the fact they were lied to and used. I love seeing them express frustration at having to pay more money they don’t have for something they don’t want all because they trusted the guy who lied to their faces.
They should have listened to the rest of us.
Enjoy the cat food morons (can you buy that with food stamps).

Oct 28, 2013 Obamacare
The Obamacare website is a dismal failure. It has crashed and burned from the moment it went live and there is no doubt that it was not ready for prime time. The Republicans worked to get the individual mandate delayed for a year but Democrats would not negotiate. They flat out said no and that a delay would NOT happen.
Now, of course, a bunch of them are working hard to get that very delay so that they will not suffer on Election Day next year.
The partial shutdown took attention away from the Obamacare roll out but now that the government is back to 100% the focus is more on the Obamacare failure. Even Saturday Night Live took a shot at the failed roll out.
Imagine how much pressure would have been taken off this mess if Democrats had been willing to negotiate. Imagine how much less of a sting there would have been if they would have agreed to delay the individual mandate. People would not have been pressured to sign up and the regime could work to get the thing fixed.
The bull headed approach the Democrats took is now biting them in their posteriors.
Now that they insisted that things go forward they are seeing that over 600 MILLION taxpayer dollars were wasted to write a program that uses old technology and is full of security holes. A friend of Michelle Obama is prominent in the company that received the no bid contract to produce the website and it looks like they will get even more money to work on fixing the garbage they created.
How much more of OUR money will government throw at this project to get it running correctly?
An article in the New York Post indicates the entire website might have to be scrapped and rebuilt from scratch.
So Obama spends over 600 MILLION dollars on a project that will be scrapped and rebuilt at even more cost to the taxpayer.
Everyone involved in this should be put in jail.
The nightmare for Democrats is that people are becoming frustrated and not signing up. Those who do get through are seeing such huge costs that they are not selecting plans. What this means is that there will not be the millions of young, healthy people paying to provide for the older and less healthy among us.
Obamacare is going to cost multiples of what they told us and it will collapse under its own weight.
This is by design as Obama wants a single payer system but will anyone with a brain (excludes his supporters) actually trust him after he failed to deliver on his signature plan?
I have been reading about all the liberals who have had their insurance cancelled and have discovered how much more they will have to pay under Obamacare and I find it funny that they are surprised. They seem to think they can keep their plans like Obama promised and they are surprised to find out they are paying more to support others. To a person they exclaim how excited they were to have Obamacare pass so that everyone could have insurance but that they did not think THEY would be paying for it.
Typical liberals, no idea where money comes from and perfectly happy giving stuff away as long as they don’t have to pay.
I hope they end up eating cat food so they can suffer for their foolishness.
You see, pain is a great teacher and these folks need to suffer.
One last thing. If you think the roll out is a mess wait until you have to actually get care. That will make the roll out look like a stroll in the park.
When things like this happen people always say “I hate to say I told you so.” I don’t feel that way.
I take joy in saying I told you so…

Oct 21, 2013 Obamacare
Barack Obama and his regime spent over 600 MILLION dollars for the Obamacare exchange websites and the accompanying software that runs (ahem, tries to run) them. A Canadian company that had been fired by the Canadian government for missing deadlines was given 5 or 6 times the original contract estimate (a no bid contract at that) and about two and a half years to get things right. Millions of lines of code later and the thing is a total flop.
So Obama and his peeps have called in the best and the brightest in the tech world in order to rescue the monstrosity. There are reports that the entire thing needs to be rewritten and that people will miss deadlines for signing up.
Not to worry though, the IRS will still tax you for not having insurance.
The big question I have is why didn’t they get the best and the brightest to begin with?
It is always more difficult to step in and clean up a mess made by people who do not know what they are doing than it is to start from scratch. These best and brightest will have to step in to fix something that was written poorly and that did not work.
Once again, why didn’t they get the job to write it in the first place? Perhaps this was a political payoff to an Obama friend? It is well documented that Obama has no problem throwing billions of our hard earned dollars at the failing ventures of his friends (think solar energy companies and electric cars) so why wouldn’t that hold true here? Hell, Obama did not put it out for open bid, the very thing Democrats screamed about with regard to Halliburton.
I guess when the messiah is doing it then it is OK.
Perhaps though, Obama selected a failure of a company because he wanted the thing to fail. Obama has made it clear that he would prefer the Socialist dream of a single payer system where government pays for all health care (and rations it out) while increasing our taxes to pay for it. Obama and his Democrats have not hidden their desire to have a single payer system and Obamacare is their first step.
They passed a monstrosity that will cost a fortune. All they need is to laden it with burdensome regulations and ensure it costs too much for most people to afford and then make sure it does not work and people will be demanding action.
Once everyone starts getting socked with taxes (not penalties, ask John Roberts) for not having health care insurance, all because they could not use the flawed software, then those folks will scream. They will be burdened and demand that government step in and fix the problem (a problem government created in the first place). In steps Obama and his toadies saying the only thing to fix this is single payer.
Boom, insurance companies go out of business, taxes go up for everyone, government completely controls health care (and your lives) and many people smile as they become slaves to the government.
Liberals smile at their successful transformation to Socialism and know they will be the overlords who are exempted from the system.
It is all part of the plan. We had a chance to defund it and the RINOs blew it by caving.
So now it will take even more force to get rid of it.
Which will happen as soon as people take the advice of a member of Congress and follow the example of veterans who took control of the government and showed it who was boss.
We can do that as a people.
The question is do you have the stomach to do it?
You don’t need to be the best and the brightest to see what is going on but you need to have the ability to use your own brain…
Never surrender, never submit.

Today is the day all socialists have longed for. Their signature legislation is open for public consumption and they could not be happier because they will dig their nails deeper into the skin of the American people and further enslave them to government. Once government is able to put millions of people on the Obamacare plantation they should be able to count of Democrat votes for years to come as the takers vote to take even more.
But like Obama, his roll out is a failure. Obamacare exchange websites are failing all over the place. People are unable to log on and create their accounts. The thing does not work even though they have had three years to get it up and running and yet it does not.
This is par for the course when government is involved. Billions of dollars have been spent and it is not ready for prime time.
Barack Obama said to expect glitches for a few months. Really? Is that the best we can do?
Republicans pushed for a delay and Democrats said no. The left wanted to shut down the government all along as they feel it will strengthen their chances in the 2014 election.
They do not care about anyone and it shows. A delay would have helped get things in order. Then again, if they could not get it right in three years what makes anyone think another year would have made it better?
Keep in mind that Democrats refused to be a part of this. They have been given an exemption from the part of the law that applies to Congress and they are happy.
Harry Reid said being involved was punishment.
The failure of the exchanges is proof he was right.
And folks, if you think that the roll out is full of problems and delays wait until you need to see a doctor.
Never surrender, never submit.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) is not on board with defunding Obamacare and he will help Democrats get it all the money it needs. He had a little chat on the Senate floor with fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. McConnell said that the law would fail.
On that he is correct. The law is already failing and it will fail miserably. It has not hit mandated deadlines and parts of it have had to be delayed because those parts are hurting Obama’s friends, Obama does not want the problems before the next election AND they are not ready for implementation.
But McConnell is wrong in drawing the conclusion that because Obamacare will fail it will go away. He stated:
“I think it’s pretty safe to conclude: The things that can’t work don’t stick, don’t last. Because we are, after all, a representative Democracy, the people can complain and discuss and tell us how they feel.” The Hill
Social Security is not working and it has been around for decades. Medicare, same thing. The war on drugs, not working but we continue to spend billions of dollars on that war (while Obama arms drug cartels).
The war on poverty has cost us over 12 TRILLION dollars and it has been a failure. There are more people in poverty now then when the program started and there are more people on welfare. The war to end poverty has created more of it, has added trillions of dollars to our debt and has added millions of people to the welfare rolls.
With all of these negatives one can safely say that the war on poverty failed.
Yet our government continues to redistribute wealth to support the welfare state that resulted from the lost war on poverty.
Government programs do not go away. They cost more than advertised and then when they fail government says there is a problem that needs more money to solve and then throws more money at the problem IT created.
It is a vicious cycle that resembles being caught in a transporter loop.
McConnell can claim that the law has no chance of working and he is correct but to conclude that it will go away flies in the face of history and reality.
The only way to get rid of it is to do so now before millions of people get snared into it and depend on it.
When that happens we will have another failed welfare program that consumes more and more while producing nothing.
Regardless of what happens McConnell and the rest of the RINOs must be removed from office.
I know that the establishment Republicans are counting on winning the Senate in 2014. What happens if they don’t? I would rather never win the Senate if it will be in control of people like McConnell, McCain and Cornyn.
I won’t be voting in 2014 with the goal of gaining back the Senate. I will be working to have people vote these slugs out of office.
Never surrender, never submit.
