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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
In keeping with the fine democrat tradition of silencing dissent, the campaign of candidate Gary Peters is reportedly threatening the operating licenses of TV stations that have run ads critical of ObamaCare. Here is one of those ads… Here is a link to the threatening correspondence. In the end, this is how democrats work. When their policies fail, they take several paths. They can blame others. They can deny that it is happening. Or, they can simply punish anyone who discusses it. Forget that this women might die because her policy, that she LIKED, was cancelled because it was not […]
“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job.” – Nancy Pelosi “Obamacare lets people keep their health insurance even if they quit their job to master iambic pentameter.” – Jonah Goldberg “Now that the Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that ObamaCare is the jobs-killer conservatives always claimed it was, the White House has put the spin machine into overdrive. Since they can no longer deny the truth, they’ve decided to convince you that destroying the workforce is a good thing.” – Robert Laurie “The Democrats […]
We’ve been warning, since about 2009, that the monstrosity that became ObamaCare would eventually cause doctors to not accept those plans, or quit altogether. That ObamaCare prediction, ridiculed at the time, is now coming to pass. One doctor, Kristen S. Held MD, publicly posted her letter to Aetna, informing them that she was ceasing to be a provider due to ObamaCare. Here is that letter… January 30, 2014 Dear Mr. Bertolini, With a deep sense of sadness, I must inform you that I will no longer serve as a physician for Aetna patients under the terms of our contractual agreement, […]
Back in 2009 and 2010, bloggers such as myself warned that ObamaCare would cause people to be turned down for care-it would be rationed to decrease costs. We said that more claims would be denied under ObamaCare. At that time, the democrats told everyone not to listen to us, because we were being paid by the insurance companies, or were crazy, or racists. Well, it’s now 2014, and guess what? More care is being denied. For what is sure to be the first of many stories of this type, here is more from The Western Center for Journalism… If you […]
I love words, but the following ObamaCare PSA sucked all rational thought out of my head. Take a look, and be stupified yourselves! Since the video has drained my brain (it comes back, I hope), here is my response. H/T: Adrienne Now, I think I’m going to go and hit my head off 0f something until my eyes bleed. You know, when I came up with the “ObamaCare Damage” category, I never thought that my brain would be a casualty.
ObamaCare has millions of “faces.” Those that had their hours cut at work, making it more difficult to make ends meet. Also, we cannot forget the people that have lost their jobs entirely. And, too, we cannot forget the millions that had a plan, or doctor, that they liked. Of course, they now have lost one, or both. In other words, the casualties of ObamaCare are piling up. Here is one of those faces. Her name is Emilie Lamb. She has Lupus, an autoimmune disease that requires regular medical care. Emilie Lamb, 39, is a middle-class woman who suffers from […]
WTAE in Pittsburgh recently attended a meeting at one local business, Simonetta’s Collision and Car Care Center, that unveiled their new, ObamaCare complaint health care plan… Higher premiums for most, and higher deductibles and co-pays for all. I wonder how many of them voted for this, and therefore, ObamaCare?
Here’s yet another example of a person that is being harmed by the “Affordable” Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. 28 year old Amanda Pratt has found herself in dire straights. Not only did she have a large brain tumor, ObamaCare, in spite of it’s promise to be “affordable,” has complicated Pratt’s treatment by making it unaffordable. That’s already somewhat jarring for young woman. Maybe it should have prepared her for what she saw when she went to the doctor last week. That’s where she got another shock: the cost of some of her care now that Obamacare had started […]
My friends, the situation is grave. As much of the US is in the deep freeze due to global warming, animals all over the world are being quick frozen! That’s right, not only is global warming making it colder, it’s getting so cold that animal life is being frozen in place. Because, as we all know, global warming makes it cold! Here is some photographic evidence… Apparently, the global warming is so bad, that even the Sharknado has been cancelled due to freezing temperatures (that are caused, of course, by global warming)! Rock City Times reported: Over 150 frozen sharks […]
What we don’t know can indeed hurt us. What I don’t know could fill the Library of Congress and then some. And, that’s true of all of us, isn’t it? Fortunately, we have the internet, where we often learn about things by accident while searching or researching other subjects. That happened to me today. While reading an article at the Canada Free Press (H?T to BadBlue Uncensored News) on the never-ending Global Warming sham, I came across something I’d never heard about before. This an excellent article briefly covers a lot of ground on how government policies based on the threat […]
We warned people that if Obama was re-elected, that people would lose their plans and doctors. Being a rocket scientist was not a requirement for making that prediction, but millions of low information voters drank the Kool Aid, and voted for Obama. Since then, people have lost their plans, their jobs, their hours, and their doctors. Here is the latest… On Wednesday, WKBN in Ohio reported that hundreds of patients in the state were losing their doctors thanks to Obamacare. Area medical facilities have been reporting that they have had to stop accepting insurance. “Hundreds of people in the Mahoney […]
When college students were asked ObamaCare, the reactions were, shall we say, less than positive. Chicks on the Right has more… Once again, I have suggested that the GOP, by reaching out with a viable message, can convert these people to GOP voters with relative ease. However, they are too concentrated on playing it safe with the democrats, and attacking the Tea Party, AKA, their base. So, they’ll miss this classic opportunity. And that is why we call them the stupid party.
Just as a hint, Walmart wins! Well, yes, I gave it away; in a side by side comparison with far more expensive ObamaCare coverage, the Examiner found that the Walmart Coverage was a far better deal. Here are some excerpts… Independent insurance agents affiliated with the National Association of Health Underwriters and health policy experts compared the two at the request of the Examiner. Walmart furnished employee benefit information to the Examiner. Neither Obamacare advocate Families USA nor the United Food and Commercial Workers, which backs anti-Walmart campaigns, responded to Examiner requests for comment. Walmart offers its employees two standard […]
As we all know, and as the democrats, president, and MSM lied about, hundreds of billions of dollars are being taken out of Medicare to pay for ObamaCare. We saw this coming, and tried to warn people, but they decided to drink the Kool Aid, and vote for Obama again. And now, for many senior citizens, drinking the Kool Aid is going to be a bit more literal than figurative than they would like. On Oct. 1, 2012 the Obama administration started awarding bonus points to hospitals that spend the least on elderly patients. It will result in fewer knee […]
The Kinder family, of Auburn, Alabama, are victims of ObamaCare. Rather than sitting back and taking it silently, Kerri Kinder wrote this “open letter.” Since it is an “open letter,” it is published in it’s entirety. An Open Letter to the Obama Administration and American Citizens: My family’s journey with securing our new insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) started on October 1, 2013. I have decided to write this letter to let the American people know what it has been like for us. We are a family of four, with two little boys’ ages seven years old and […]
I guess more and more people are finding out what was “in” ObamaCare; primarily incompetence and failure. The latest comes to us from the Daily Mail, via iOWNTHEWORLD, who shows us that “having” ObamaCare doesn’t necessarily mean that you have anything at all… MailOnline spoke with patients who were told they would have to pay their bills in full if they couldn’t prove they had insurance One was faced with a $3,000 hospital room charge and opted to leave the hospital after experiencing chest pains ‘Should I be in the hospital? Probably,’ she said Another, coughing in the cold, walked […]
ObamaCare, beyond increasing health insurance premiums, causing people to lose hours at work, causing millions of people to lose their plans, and causing thousands of jobs, also apparently forces vending machines to display nutritional information. Wyblog has more… Obamacare requires you to read a nutrition label before buying chips from a vending machine Because nagging the crap out of you makes you healthier. And it makes do-gooder bureaucrats happy. Office workers in search of snacks will be counting calories along with their change under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law. Requiring […]
I caught this over at Atlas Shrugs, and thought I’d share it here. The period of time between Pearl Harbor and the end of WW II is rather close to the period of time between the passage of ObamaCare (so we could see what was inside it), and the roll-out of the totally useless (unless you are an identity thief) ObamaCare website. Let take a look at the accomplishments of the Greatest Generation, shall we? Atlas reader Walt puts it in perspective: During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in […]
And Here are Your ObamaCare Death Panels: Medicare Cuts Pay for ObamaCare, Just Like Conservatives Said!
One thing that we always have to keep in mind is that government won’t just come out and tell us what they are doing. Instead, they will create regulations to accomplish something without telling us. ObamaCare is great example. They aren’t going to just come out and say that they’re going to kill granny, they’ll just create a situation in which granny dies, and say nothing. And, if the outcry becomes loud enough, they’ll blame it on someone else. For the latest example of this, take a look at this from Doug Ross… And here’s even more from AMAC… As […]
If You Like Your Senator…New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen Crushed by her own Words in Obamacare ad
And speaking of reckonings, New Hampshire Senator, Jeanne Shaheen, is being pounded for her Kool-Aid distribution regarding ObamaCare, in this devastating ad. Steve, at America’s Watchtower, has more… One of my Senators, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, is a devout supporter of Obamacare. She was one of the Democrats who repeated Barack Obama’s “if you like your plan you can keep it” lie and she also ran around the state telling people Obamacare would provide the people with more options because the competition would be increased, and this competition would reduce their premiums. The munchy-crunchy sound you hear is Jeanne Shaheen trying […]
