From the Washington Post:

Obamacare’s Premiums are Going Up — at the Same Rate as Everyone Else’s


From the article:

HealthCare.gov has reopened for business. For the next month, Americans obtaining health coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces face an open-enrollment period during which they can shop for, select and switch insurance plans.

And if you don’t have insurance? The penalties are going up too. So much for “affordable”.

No Surprise Here…..

Producer of anti-Obamacare movie ‘Sick and Sicker’ hit with IRS audit

From the article:

The producer of a new movie that criticizes Obamacare has reportedly become the latest prominent conservative slapped with an IRS audit.

Logan Clements, producer of “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” announced via press release Tuesday that he is being audited for the first time ever.

“I had never been audited before I made this movie,” he says in a YouTube video. “There seems to be a pattern here.”

Some comments after the article:

Red Dog

 “Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Should be required reading for all college freshman and recommended for high school seniors.

Never happen…because you’re right. The left doesn’t hate Ayn Rand because of the
mistakes in her philosophic prescription, they hate her because of her perfect
diagnosis of their corruption.

I don’t have any respect for a man who goes after people who disagree with him, with an IRS audit.

It’s called being a “Bully” and it’s absolute “Cowardice” in my book.

Seriously? You can’t even stand up for yourself  without sinking low to the ground?

Note: Of course, to those who choose to expose anything corrupt at all concerning this administration….., it might be wise to first make sure your taxes are up to date and correct before beginning a fight. Just sayin’.

Way Past Time to Admit Obamacare Was A Really, Really Bad Idea…..

Doctors Begin To Refuse Obamacare Patients

From the article:

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports.

Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse.

And now you know why no one in their right mind tried this during their administration. Too many problems. The problems aren’t going away anytime soon. Truthfully  they are only going to get worse. When the problems started early on it should have been put in the ol’ circular file.

Dueling rulings: Courts split on health law clash

From the article:

President Barack Obama’s health care law is snarled in another big legal battle, with two federal appeals courts issuing contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.

More:

In that first ruling, a divided three-judge panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people afford their premiums, saying financial aid can be provided only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.

About 100 miles to the south in Richmond, Virginia, another appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing health insurance tax credits for consumers in all 50 states.

The question(s) I have is(are) this….why should middle income people need a subsidy in the first place?  It is…or, should I say wasn’t it, the middle class that essentially kept this nation going?

And…..wasn’t this supposedly called, “The Affordable  Care Act”? What’s so affordable about that?  Oh, I see….only affordable AFTER you have the subsidy that you are…..in fact, really paying for  yourself.

If I remember right…..didn’t the Supreme Court call the “Affordable Care Act” a tax? So was this whole mess created to tax people into oblivion?  Wouldn’t that destroy the middle class?

Ah, maybe I ask too many questions? Okay,….my final question….did “they” or did “they” not know that this would be impossible to sort out?  And if “they” did…..?

NHS nurses stretched to breaking point, says report

From the article:

“It’s clear that despite nurses working through breaks and beyond their hours, they simply do not have enough time to give patients the care and attention they need. That is distressing for patients and for the staff trying to care for them.

Just what I’m sure every patient wants, an overly tired nurse taking care of them. I’m sure the chance of being given the wrong medication will be a distinct possibility. Or, their calls go unanswered.  The solution is of course, to never get sick. Make sure you take care of yourself and avoid doctor’s and hospitals altogether. I am being sarcastic of course.

The U.S. used to be the best place on earth to be if you needed medical care.

Story in point:  My car insurance agent once told me his son’s father-in-law (who lived in Canada) had lost the vision in one eye and was also losing it in the other. Instead of waiting to be seen by the doctor in Canada and it would have been months, he came across the bridge to Michigan. The doctor in Michigan said if he had waited he would have been totally blind. The good news was that not only did he retain and improve the vision in the eye that he wasn’t blind in yet. But, he regained his vision in the blind eye.

Sometimes you get exactly what you ask for…and more. Obamacare. Obamacare is to healthcare, what the school lunch program is to the children of this nation.

Shame on you, Harry Reid…

February27

According to Harry Reid, every story across the nation about the negative effects of Obamacare are untrue. How can you say all this with a straight face, Mr. Reid? Just asking.

When is healthcare not really healthcare?

Well, I’ll tell you, Mr. Reid…when the deductible’s is about $5000 for a guy who make’s approximately $13 an hour, working 25 hours a week. I know this person. It’s like having no insurance at all.  It’s like being married in name only.  Not that you would comprehend any of this.

You live in a bubble, Mr. Reid…of your own making. Your reality is inside that bubble. Someone needs to pop your bubble, Mr. Reid and invite you to the real world. Where Obamcare,… “so-called” healthcare is a joke.

Gary Peter’s Tries to Silence Lady with Cancer, but She Fights Back!

How low can you go, Rep. Gary Peter’s?

I have a notion, (I could be wrong?) that this woman voted for Obama.  And why, I believe that…

From the article:

Asked what she would say to Obama were she given the chance, Boonstra responded: “This law has not benefited him. I know there are some people out there who wanted to believe that. I have not seen the benefits so far.”

“Benefited him”?  Excuse me? Why on earth would she care about benefiting him? Where are the benefits she planned on?  Like NOT being dropped from her insurance that she so desperately needs?

Also, from the article:

“This [law] is hurting me,” she continued. “I thought the intention was to help and it’s not. I’m angry [Obama] lied to me.

Well, he’s lied about a lot of things, hasn’t he?  It’s a matter of public record.

Finally, ….everyone should take note, a “big note” on what these cowards do when their policies actually hurt and not help families.  They will go after Y~O~U  if you say anything.  Remember that.

Obamacare in the News Again?

Health Law’s Impact Has Only Begun

sj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303491404579391740095244018?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702303491404579391740095244018.html

So, here’s what I’m thinking…either we have people who are totally inept and can’t run their own planned healthcare program. Or,….this was planned to be the total flop that it is, so somebody will come riding up on a white horse to save the day. And quite possibly the only way to do that will be to have a single payer system. Total government control. Has this been the plan all along? Only time will tell. Or, could there be an even more devious plan? Like a Trojan Horse?
