Obama’s Vehicle

Got these in my email … Fox News Roundup and the incomparable Terrell.

Obama has pursued his policy aims with dogged persistency since taking office and has made no secret of his central aim of shifting wealth. The surprise from many reporters at seeing millions of health insurance policies vaporized and in seeing premiums for those already covered leap astronomically indicates either massive inattention or a facile response to a story they can no longer ignore.

Obama’s law turns insurance companies into vehicles for redistribution: heavily regulated, highly protected public utilities with a social-engineering mission. The fact that Obama is emphasizing this point now suggests he knows just how bad the days ahead will be for his law and his party. By hardening the resolve of the third of Americans standing with him on ObamaCare, Obama hopes to make good on his promise to have the law go into effect despite massive opposition and survive at least until the end of his term.

RCØTUS is good at only two things

1. Campaigning

2. Breaking promises

2013_12 03 Ocare site still bust

Even the president’s media cheerleaders are out of excuses. When a CNN reporter logged in to the “new, improved” HealthCare.gov to demonstrate its smoothed-out functionality, it crashed … on television.

The insurance companies that have to deal with the mess the administration is creating are in a panic and even those few Americans who have managed to sign up for coverage through HealthCare.gov may find when they go to their doctor that they are not insured after all.

And that says nothing about all the million of Americans who lost policies and doctors they liked or the people like us who were supposedly the target audience for ObamaCare’s beneficence. We still can’t afford health insurance … but now the IRS is going to fine us for not having it.

The fundamental flaw in all this is Democrat Party philosophy that holds that a big, activist government can solve complex social problems. These clowns can’t even solve a website.

More policy cancellations coming next fall

Next autumn, 50 to 100 MILLION Americans who are employed by small businesses (500 or fewer employees) will have their employer-based health insurance policies canceled — right before the mid-term elections.

The Obama administration has tried to downplay this autumn’s round of policy cancellations by belittling the “small percentage” of Americans who buy insurance privately and blaming “greedy” insurance companies.

That “small percentage” represents 15 MILLION Americans.

Employer-provided health insurance is an anomaly, so let’s put this in terms of cars and car insurance. Most of us buy and insure our own vehicles, right?

When Obama sneers at those who bought independent health insurance, he’s saying they were just too DUMB to do what most of us do with our car insurance.

As for the allegedly “greedy” insurance companies … when Pelosi and other ObamaCare apologists say, “There’s nothing in the ACA that forced insurance companies to cancel policies”, they’re literally telling the truth.

And they’re totally lying out their liar holes.

All of this is Obamacare

I know some people get a vehicle with their jobs. Some people also get housing with their jobs. And just think how screwed they are when they lose those jobs or just decide it’s time for a change. It’s bad enough quitting or getting fired. Some folks stay in jobs they hate because they can’t risk losing their health coverage.

Freeing people from the yoke of employer-based health insurance was at the heart of the Republican plans in 2010 … all half dozen that were proposed and that the Democrats and media shouted over and over did not exist.

According to Democrats, the ONLY solution to any problem is to give the government more power, more money and more control over our lives. Did you vote Democrat? How’s that working out for you?

Lost your insurance policy yet? Had your favorite doctor cut out of the policy you’re now permitted by the Nazis at the Dept of HHS? Can you even afford that policy’s high premiums and higher deductibles? How about the alternative of no insurance, which would mean health care will be out of pocket and you’ll be taxed thousands of dollars per year for not having bought that policy you hate and can’t afford?

The country is in the very best of hands

2013_11 16 Thus Spake Obama

The following is excerpted from “Thus Spake Obama” by Mark Steyn

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/364093/thus-spake-obama-mark-steyn

Five years ago, Barack Obama assured us:

“I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors.”

Well, apart from his signature health-care policy. That’s a mystery to him.

“I was not informed directly that the website would not be working,” he told us.

The buck stops with something called “the executive branch,” which is apparently nothing to do with him. As evidence that he was entirely out of the loop, he offered this:

“Had I been I informed, I wouldn’t be going out saying, ‘Boy, this is going to be great.’ You know, I’m accused of a lot of things, but I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying, ‘This is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity,’ a week before the website opens, if I thought that it wasn’t going to work.”

Ooooo-kay. So, if I follow correctly,

  • the smartest president ever is not smart enough to ensure that his website works;
  • he’s not smart enough to inquire of others as to whether his website works;
  • he’s not smart enough to check that his website works before he goes out and tells people what a great website experience they’re in for.

But he is smart enough to know that he’s not stupid enough to go around bragging about how well it works if he’d already been informed that it doesn’t work.

So he’s smart enough to know that if he’d known what he didn’t know he’d know enough not to let it be known that he knew nothing.

The country’s in the very best of hands.

Today’s number is FOUR

1. Sesame Street – Number Guy – Four [:32]

2. More than FOUR million people have received cancellation notices on those policies they liked, but can’t keep.

3. A FOUR million dollar federal grant went to hire folks to enroll Delawareans in ObamaCare.

4. So far, they’ve racked up FOUR enrollees.

BOYCOTT OBAMACARE!

According to documents released by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, only six people signed up for health insurance at healthcare.gov on the first day.

SIX people signed up? You can’t field a baseball team with six people! [:44]

They got about 90 more on day two and about 150 more on day three. They need 38,461 PAYING customers per day, 7 days a week, from Oct 1 through the end of March.

At the end of the first month, even worse news emerges … the vast majority of new sign-ups are for MEDICAID. News flash: Insurance only works if most of the people pay money IN and only a small number take money OUT. Medicaid enrollees pay nothing in.

The BEST news on that video … if they don’t get enough people, “it’s not gonna happen.” That sounds to me like we don’t need Congress to defund it or SCOTUS to strike it down. We just need to BOYCOTT IT.

What he meant was, “If I like your plan, you can keep it.”

What O meant was if HE likes your plan

Obama apologists are claiming that “nothing” in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans.

But that’s a lie based on a technicality.

Obamacare and its numerous added-on regulations were deliberately written in a way that would force individual-market plans to sacrifice their grandfather status.

To whit, they HAD to offer the same coverage as before, while simultaneously adding dependents under 26 for free, eliminating lifetime-spending caps, and accepting all applicants regardless of preexisting conditions.
