ObamaCare – Fake Applicants Approved For Health Care Subsidies

It’s been a while since I wrote about ObamaCare, but this is worthy of a post. We all know, if we will admit to the knowledge, that ObamaCare is a boondoggle. It is a massive federal program that is poorly designed and even more poorly conceived. It is an attempt to take over the health care system in America, out of the control of the patients and doctors and placing it in the control of the federal bureaucracy. If for no other reason than that, it is a bad law and even worse program. When you consider the ineptitude and […]

ObamaCare Funding to cause Doctor Shortage

Hat/Tip to USAToday. Supply won’t meet growing demand for primary care Even though Obama’s signature legislation, the contrarily named ‘Affordable Care’ Act will create a need for 8,000 new family, or primary care doctors, funding in ObamaCare will only yield a bit over 2,000 new physicians. Federally funded programs will add at least 2,300 new primary care practitioners by the end of 2015, but the funding for at least one of those programs is set to expire at the same time, contributing to a massive shortage of doctors available to treat patients — including those newly insured through the Affordable […]

NBC Claims All Americans Will Be Implanted With Microchips For Obamacare

Hat/Tip to The USPatriot. Talk about giving up your freedoms and personal liberties… Recently, NBC predicted that in 2017, we will all be tagged with microchip, implanted to help identify individuals immediately. According to the report, the technology is used to answer one question, “Am I who I say I am?” Some worry, however, that the RFID Microchip will give the government too much power, allowing them to track every move. In some states, like Virginia, legislation is in process to stop his from happening. The report also reveals an RFID Brain Chip that has been developed and is currently […]

ObamaCare & Transparency don’t go hand-in-hand: taxpayers foot the bill

Hat/Tip to Political Calculations. “I will also hold myself as President to a new standard of openness. Going forward, anytime the American people want to know something that I or a former President wants to withhold, we will have to consult with the Attorney General and the White House Counsel, whose business it is to ensure compliance with the rule of law. Information will not be withheld just because I say so. It will be withheld because a separate authority believes my request is well grounded in the Constitution. Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and […]

Study finds ObamaCare will NOT reduce number of uninsured: Thanks alot Barack!

  Hat/Tip I Hate The Media. So we screwed up the greatest healthcare system in the world, spent billions of dollars on websites that don’t work, ruined millions of health insurance polices for hardworking Americans – killing a few people in the process, by the way – and legislated the largest single tax increase in world history… for what?  From the National and State Impact Analyses of the ACA on Insurance Prices and Enrollment Beyond 2014: Nationally, we estimate an initial decrease in the uninsured with greater use of the private health insurance subsidies, but over time health plan prices […]

Stage-4 Cancer patient loses her coverage AND her doctors because of Obamacare

From Poor Richard’s News. What follows is a heartbreaking story. What makes it worse is that if we don’t stop ObamaCare, it won’t be an anomaly, it will be the standard. Reading this story absolutely breaks my heart, both for this woman and the millions of Americans who will soon be in her shoes. Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers. My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have […]

Every Democrat Voted to Bailout Insurance Companies: Zero Republicans Voted For Insurance Bailout

We’ve heard of ObamaCare’s “Reinsurance Program” and “Risk Corridors” and inherently knew that neither meant anything good for the average American. Both provide a bailout written by Congress, put right within the ObamaCare law. Every single Democrat in Congress voted for taxpayers to reimburse losses insurance company’s bear due to ObamaCare. An insurer’s risk of loss is approximately 2 percent, but insurance company’s are not in business to bear losses. It’s my opinion that regardless of what is law, there will be no risk of loss at all. UPDATE: I’m traveling — my first time to post by iPad (and […]

Employers to Dump 90% of Health Care Plans: Thanks, ObamaCare!

Hat/Tip Freedomworks. Since the days of FDR, our government has been sticking it’s nose into our healthcare system. There are many problems with the employer-provided health insurance model. It was first implemented as a way to get around FDR’s wage controls during the Great Depression, and by all rights should never have existed in the first place. Tying health insurance to employment. instead of a system that favors individual plans purchased by individuals. is awkward, inefficient, and in many cases unjust. Then along comes Obama, and his plethora of broken promises making a bad system worse. However, a shift from […]

Obamacare Ruins More Than Health Care

Hat/Tip to the Capitalism Magazine. By now we have all found out what a fiasco ObamaCare is. The ridiculously named Affordable Care Act is anything but. It doesn’t improve or expand actual care and converse to it’s name, it raises health care costs. So what exactly are the dangers of ObamaCare? The suppression of liberty in health care choices will take all privacy down with it. Tight government control of electronic medical records–which used to be private–seems a minor contribution to the destruction of the Fourth Amendment compared to the seizure of everyone’s communications with everybody, without individual court orders […]

$1.2 Billion Obamacare Contract Pays Workers to Do Nothing

“I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.” – September 2008, Barack Obama Yeaaahhh, right. That’s what Obama said in […]

McKinsey: 74 percent of Obamacare Enrollees Were Previously Insured

As reported in Townhall.com: It looks like all those reports of the “millions of Americans” seeking health care who “flocked” to ObamaCare are about as reliable as this administration is honest. A second salient question about the administration’s oft-touted enrollment totals is how many of those “newly insured” consumers actually lacked coverage prior to the advent of Obamacare? Due to the ongoing dysfunction of Healthcare.gov, we lack solid government numbers on this question, but several credible organizations have pursued answers via thorough independent analyses. McKinsey, Goldman Sachs and the RAND Corporation all determined that among “new” Obamacare enrollees, more than […]

The ObamaCare Money Pit: A half a billion dollars for 4 failed exchanges – and counting

So ObamaCare was gonna help us “be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.” Or at least that’s the impression one gets after the dozens of speeches and promises (broken ones, I might add) about what […]

Reports: More Obamacare Cancellations, Premium Hikes On the Way

Hat/Tip to Townhall.com for this bit of news.  Outgoing Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, President Barack Obama, and current Budget Director and nominee to replace Sebelius at HHS, Sylvia Mathews Burwell It just keeps getting better and better… /sarcasm off Kaiser Health News reports on the increasing likelihood of more and more large employers dumping employees into Obamacare’s exchanges. An untold number of employees will discover that they can’t keep their plan, especially if they’re a high-risk, high-cost employee. The Obama administration estimated that as many as 93 million Americans will lose their existing coverage under the new law, despite […]

Obamacare ‘Doomed’ Under Constitution’s Origination Clause

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills. Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 And that’s where George Will says Obamacare will die. Two years ago, when the Supreme Court declared Obamacare’s penalty to be a tax, it “doomed” the healthcare reform act as an “unconstitutional violation of the origination clause,” columnist George Will says. This Thursday, the Washington, D.C., Court of Appeals, the nation’s second-most important court, will hear arguments on whether the Affordable Care Act adheres to the Constitution’s “origination clause,”  […]

Obamacare Popular? Not By Half

Hat Tip to National Review Online and Georgia Health News for this bit of news. It seems that the popularity of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, is not living up to the Obama Administration’s hype. For example, in the state of Georgia where experts expect 650,000 people could “benefit” from Obamacare, only 220,000 have signed up. And as they say in those cheesy commercials for everything from Flex Seal to the Side Socket to the Hurrycane, “But wait!! That’s not all!!” It seems that only HALF of Georgians who signed up for Obamacare are PAID customers. That’s […]

ObamaCare Emails Can’t Get Past Spam Filters

We’ve been saying, all along, that ObamaCare is a scam.  Apparently, the spam filters of some email providers are thinking the same thing. I’m sure that the government will be right on this, by sending IRS audits to the owners or managers of the email services in question.

Just as Predicted, Insurance Premiums Continue to Skyrocket-Because of ObamaCare

ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums.  In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums.  Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums.  I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two.  Wyblog has more… Now, in a Superfecta of Obamacare #fail, if you were expecting to save $2,500 per year, well, the joke’s on you. Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average […]

The Big “Stinkburger” … Obamacare

I’m at work right now and I have to admit I’m in a very good mood. Some liberals didn’t take my previous post very kindly and that does sadden me somewhat … NOT!! Regardless of how many times they say it or how loud they proclaim that people are swarming the system to try to get signed up,  and  millions of people are rushing to get insurance.  And  America is now cognizant of the fact that Obamacare is a good deal after all,  it doesn’t change the fact that Obamacare is one big “stinkburger!”  (I wish I’d have thought of […]

Just in Case You Needed a Reminder; The ObamaCare is a TAX!

The Hobby Lobby Care was being heard before the Supreme Court today, and while liberal justices were dismissive of religious rights, as predicted, they also reminded us of another lie told by democrats. There are no taxes in ObamaCare! Just like, “if you like your plan,” or, “if you like your doctor,” lies, the no taxes claim will go down as one of the many blatant lies told by democrats in order to gain support for ObamaCare.  Wyblog has the details… Kagan, Sotomayor to Hobby Lobby: Pay the Obamacare Jizya, you Christofascist women-haters It’s no surprise that Obamabot Justices Elena […]

ObamaCare Before and After

ObamaCare came to us with a ton of promises.  But, just like the active guy in dating ends up a married bum that never gets off the couch, ObamaCare was presented in one way, and is the polar opposite in practical application… Lower your lifestyle and pay way too much for something you may not want or need.

Obama Admits That ObamaCare will Cause People to Lose Their Doctors, Just Like Their Plans!

Remember being promised (repeatedly), that under ObamaCare; if you liked you plan and doctor, you could keep them?  Let’s refresh your memory with these ObamaCare promises… Now, here is some more reality intruding into the narrative… But, what happened to keeping you doctor if you liked them? Don’t worry, the democrats, and their lapdogs in the MSM, will shove the false ObamaCare promises down the memory hole, and pretend that they never were made. H/T:  The Daily Caller

Obama States That People Should Give up Smart Phones, Cable, in Order to Pay Higher ObamaCare Premiums

ObamaCare has caused insurance premiums to rise sharply, placing coverage out of reach for millions of Americans.  Especially impacted are those that had plans they liked, but were cancelled-also due to ObamaCare.  Now, President Obama has a solution to the increased costs..for people to give up their cell phones, and cable TV!… (Washington, D.C.) – The President recently participated in a health care town hall with Spanish-language media. He responded to a question received via email, from a consumer who makes $36,000 per year and cannot find insurance for a family of three for less than $315 per month. The […]

ObamaCare Architect Ezekiel Emanuel: “So be prepared to kiss your insurance company good-bye forever”

Ever since ObamaCare was proposed, Conservatives and Libertarians were warning everyone that the actual intent was to kill the medical and insurance industry, and set up a single payer system.  The then spanking new Conservative Hideout 1.0 was in on that.  Here is a small selection of posts from way back when… Obama’s History of Favoring Single Payer Single Payer: A Faulty Rationale You Mean That ObamaCare is Cloward-Piven for Private Insurance? Exploring the Intent of ObamaCare: Donald Berwick and Ezekiel Emanuel Single Payer: A Faulty Rationale I even bothered to make a video about it back in 2009… Of […]

Mother of Sick Child, and ObamaCare Victim Demands Apology from Harry Reid for Calling her a Liar

It’s a familiar tale.  With millions of Americans losing their plans, doctors, work hours, jobs, and so on, all due to ObamaCare, you might imagine the outrage when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Douchebag), called all victims of ObamaCare liars.  We covered that last week, and one mother is responding… So, of course, the democrats claim that this simply is not happening, and the sick girl in the video is simply an invention of the GOP. Just remember that folks, the democrats will promise you everything, destroy things in the process, and if you’re a victim, you’d better STFU, of […]

Harry Reid Boldy States That Suffering Caused by ObamaCare Simply Hasn’t Happened

When the Soviets screwed up and killed a slew of people, they would lie, and say it never happened.  When Mao’s Great Leap Forward caused millions to starve, they said it didn’t happen.   I seriously doubt that after the Khmer Rouge killed millions in the Killing Fields, they came out and said, “Yeah, we did that!”  No, they probably said it didn’t happen either.  Now, enter Harry Reid, with his claim that all of the suffering caused by ObamaCare simply did not happen.  Here is some more, from The Minority Report… SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “…there’s plenty of horror stories […]
