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 […]

Is Chief Justice John Roberts getting the band back together?

Is Chief Justice John Roberts returning to his Conservative roots? It would seem so. Two years after the court upheld President Barack Obama’s health-care law and a year after it bolstered gay rights, the five Republican-appointed justices are voting together again in the highest-profile cases. In recent weeks that group, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, has joined to loosen campaign-finance limits, back government-sponsored prayer and let states ban racial preferences. Now, as the court enters the final month-and-a-half of its term, those justices may unite in cases involving contraception, abortion protests and separation of powers. “When he’s got the […]

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 […]

Ted Cruz Report 4, List of 76 Lawless Obama Abuses of Power + Reports 1, 2 and 3

  Senator Ted Cruz has published the “The Legal Limit Report, No. 4,” documenting the Obama administration’s lawless abuses of power. Each is footnoted. See the footnotes and the actual report here.  Also below, see snippets of Reports 1, 2 and 3. All emphasis below is mine.   Governing by Executive Fiat 1. Disregarded 1996 welfare reform law in granting broad work waivers for work requirements of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). 2. Implemented portions of the DREAM Act, which Congress rejected, by executive action. 3. Ended some terror asylum restrictions, by allowing asylum for people who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” […]

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,”  […]

Celebrity Death Match, Wynn vs. Clooney! – or – Why Megastars in Hollywood are Liberals

      Not long ago, George Clooney the movie star and Steve Wynn the casino mogul sat down to dinner  in one of Steve Wynn’s hotels. Reportedly, both were drinking quite a bit, since they were promoting Clooney’s Casamigos tequila. As the conversation drifted to politics in general and Obama / Obamacare in particular, Mr. Clooney got upset.   At this point, Clooney stormed out and Wynn got the last laugh by explaining why megastars are such libs. This is really a very, very good explanation, by the way. Hat/Tip the Tea Party News Network Artists, actors, people like […]

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

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 […]

Anti-American Hustle

“Yes we can’t!” – Sergio Aragonés “President Obama smoked so much pot in college he never learned to spell. Which is why he’s confusing the word “ruining” the country with “running” the country.” – Kilburn Hall “‘Wann dem Führer wuste!’ – If the Führer only knew! – This was an expression common during the Third Reich among those who supposed that Hitler could do no wrong. The implication being that anything in Germany that was not quite right was so only because Hitler didn’t know about it.” – Yahoo “We need a direct repudiation of Barack Obama and everything for […]

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 […]

No Religious Freedoms for Businesses?

In a recent Op-Ed, Mr. Leonard Pitts, Jr. tried to make the case that violating someone’s 1st Amendment rights is the same as the idea that one’s personal liberty ends where the next person’s begins. Let me also use a quote to make my point.  “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.” A direct quote correctly attributed to President Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Henry L. Pierce, April, 1859. In this letter, he was declining an invitation to speak at an event in Boston, honoring […]

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 […]

Harry Reid Lies About Lying; MSM Silent

Remember when Harry Reid said that the victims of ObamaCare were all lying?  Apparently, neither does Harry Reid. So, we have to assume that one of two things are true: 1.  Harry Reid is senile, and cannot remember calling ObamaCare victims liars. 2.  Harry Reid is a liar. And there is the bonus third option… 3.  Harri Reid is a liar, and he is also now a senile liar. The main theme, not matter the option, is that Harry Reid is a liar. Oh, and the MSM is not covering it, as usual. H/T: IOwnTheWorld

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 […]
