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 […]
The more time wears on, the more we see what that the Obama administration thinks of Christians. From the funding and arming of his Syrian Rebels Al Qaeda, who regularly slaughter Christians, to allowing Muslims to avoid ObamaCare, while Christians are forced to fund the killing of babies, you might just get the notion that there is some bias there. Our post tonight will show that some more. For the latest “Tale of Two Stories,” let’s look at who the Obama administration is letting into the building, and who he’s deporting… Terrorists allowed in… Via Investor’s Business Daily: Obama’s new […]
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 […]
“Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face.” – Thomas Sowell “The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories. Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree.” – Ajit Pai “The darkness of human nature parades smugly before us calling itself ‘hope and change’.” – Jeffrey T. Brown “Democracy is so overrated.” – Frank Underwood/House of Cards “Who are the Brain Police?” — Frank Zappa I’ve always loved my country — and if I could ever find it again, I still would. That nation is more than likely gone for good, ground […]
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 […]
Regardless of how Obama, the Democrats and your limited intelligence liberals try to spin it, Obamacare is crippling the United States. After watching the funny video check THIS LINK for more fun facts about how Obamacare is hurting the American people and small businesses. Via: TPPN Hilarious Must Watch Video Spoofs Democrats’ ObamaCare Spin Liberals who are grossly ignorant and are so stupid they can’t find themselves in a mirror, repeat the same line of crap that comes out of Obama’s mouth. They can’t think for themselves so repeating like parrots is all they can do. They claim the Republicans have held […]
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 […]
If the numbers hold true, ObamaCare has cost 33,000 jobs, just in the medical devise industry. One “feature” of ObamaCare is a tax on medical devises, like pacemakers, and artificial joints. Just like everything else in ObamaCare, it’s causing people to lose their jobs, or cause other jobs to be “aborted.” Here is more… This spinning of the loss of jobs due to Obamacare was described by Sebelius as not simply ‘not true’, but as a myth. This, however, does not mesh with the reality that is happening around the country. Today, the New York Post reports on 33,000 jobs […]
I don’t get it. Everything that Barack Obama has done has been such a success I just don’t understand why he doesn’t fix the so-called part-time job problem. I mean the stimulus created millions of shovel-ready jobs. According to Nancy Pelosi, Obamacare created four million more jobs. His $535 million loan to Solyndra kept the company from going under for a couple of months, it wasn’t his fault they mis-managed the money. The $3 billion he invested into Cash For Clunkers made it possible for millions of people who normally wouldn’t be able to afford a new car, to get one. Operation […]
In the earliest days of the Conservative Hideout, I used to joke that the liberals never came up with anything new-they just called it something else. Apparently, they are now trying to do this with ObamaCare generated job losses. Smitty, over at The Other McCain, posted this yesterday… Via Drudge: Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required […]
“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, […]
One of the selling points of ObamaCare is the claim that one cannot be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition. However, what if you’re covered under ObamaCare, but your providers are not part of any ObamaCare plan? Poor Richard’s has more… from Forbes (emphasis mine): For someone in the middle of a cancer treatment, or someone with a chronic condition, this can be extraordinarily distressing, and perhaps dangerous to their health. Edie Littlefield Sundby writes in the Wall Street Journal that she is on the verge of losing her treatment program for stage-4 gallbladder cancer. Why? Her existing plan […]
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 […]
If you’d like to take a look at some very tortured logic, take a gander at the theory that links climate change with mental illness… Via Live Science: For months after Hurricane Sandy sent nearly six feet of water surging into her home in Long Beach, N.Y. — an oceanfront city along Long Island’ s south shore — retired art teacher Marcia Bard Isman woke up many mornings feeling anxious and nauseated. She had headaches, and inexplicable bouts of sadness. She found herself crying for no apparent reason. “I would feel really sad, and that’s just not me,” she said. “I […]
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 […]
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 […]
Do you want to help our supreme leader Obama create the mother of all distractions from our domestic woes? Do you want to be part of something bigger than yourself, even if you end up making most of the world look like Detroit? Well, we have the answer for you! Watch the video to learn more… Won’t you donate today? With all of the misery caused by ObamaCare, and with all the people dropping out of the job market, President Obama needs a massive distraction. So, start WW III, and if a Republican wins the White House in 2016, you […]
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.
