I Want My Affordable Health Care

Have you begun to notice that the Affordable Care Act, which was supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread, (never mind that 85% of the population were happy with the health insurance and health care they had), keeps getting delayed (illegally I might add) from implementation? Curiously, all the bad stuff, like policy cancellations and the people seeing their premiums double and deductibles quadruple, losing their doctors, hospital, and medicine, keep being pushed back to periods AFTER elections. After 2012, after 2014, and now some provisions after 2016 and long after 2016.

If this law is so good, something that Americans just couldn’t live without, then let those policy cancellation notices come out in September and October of 2014. Let’s get it on already. It wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Democrats totally OWN the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, would it? Or from the fact of what we’ve seen so far that it is turning out to be nothing like what was promised? Or maybe it was because the promises have been revealed to everybody, including democrats, to be not promises, but outright lies?

Ignoring the failure of Obamacare is one thing. What’s even more amazing is the democratic strategy for the 2014 mid-term election. A strategy designed to not make Democrats look like they have to run away from Obamacare. Their idea is to run on fixing it.

To a Democrat in Washington this makes perfect sense. Just like their inability to stimulate the economy with so-called stimulus spending, and wanting to spend more, while the only result is record long-term unemployment, the lowest worker participation rate since Jimmy Carter, and massive record national debt. In other words, they’ve proven that what they’re doing does not work. So let the ones who broke the economy fix the economy by doing the same thing that broke it in the first place.

It follows then that we should re-elect the people who destroyed our health care system and health insurance industry so that they can ostensibly “fix” it in however many years it will take. And that makes sense to who? Especially when there has been a private sector alternative solution to Obamacare for 4 years now. And on that topic, remember, every time you hear a Democrat say “they have no alternative,” you know they are lying to you again.

New Leaders Wanted, Ruling Class Shows True Colors

The next time you hear Harry Reid or John Boehner hawk a budget, or any other kind of spending bill like the sequester, where all the spending happens now and the savings happens years in the future, consider that a con job that has run its course.

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R)

After only one year of the sequester, that was supposed to last 8 years, it has already been raped by the “deal” passed by the House today.

Real fiscal conservatives. No! This has nothing to do with conservatives. This has to do with honesty. From now on, there will be no promises for anything happening in the future in exchange for something else happening now. It’s a lie. The “future” never comes.

There was a bill passed that was called PayGo back in 2010. It was in connection with raising the debt limit back then. Since then, raising the debt limit has become an annual habit of Congress, lacking the courage to control spending and treat a limit like a limit. Hell, they lack the courage to even spend the same amount next year as was spent last year. The PayGo legislation said that any increased spending had to be coupled with an equal amount of cuts somewhere else. PERIOD. That proved to be another lie and hasn’t been followed since the day it was passed. How else can anyone explain a $17 Trillion debt, heading to over 20 in a few years.

The budget hoopla in Congress today proves the point. No leader of either party in either branch has what it takes to tackle the real economic problems this country faces. Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. And the House, under John Boehner, is supposed to control the purse of the government. He’s failing at his job. Spare me the incredulity and attacks on conservatives Mr. Speaker. You’re not the one to lecture anyone about credibility.

For 2014, we need new leaders.

Why Would Democrats Resist Voter ID?

Requiring a voter to provide a picture identification would ostensibly prevent people, dead or alive, from voting multiple times. After all, isn’t having a fair and honest election process the right and moral thing to do?Shelton_moral_standards

lessadolla-sowers_mugshot-400x800Fraud on absentee ballots is a whole other issue. NAACP Exec. Lessadolla Sowers of Tunica County, Miss., sentenced on 10 counts of voter fraud. Voted for Obama 10 times using absentee ballots of people living and dead.

Unfortunately, different moral standards exist. There is no right to vote more than once in a given election.

IRS Targeted Everyone?

Technically? Yes, probably by accident. The fact that some progressive groups were also targeted seemed to make Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) feel better. In his world, it’s OK for the dc_irs_protestIRS to abuse its authority, intimidate taxpayers, and suppress voter participation, as long as it does it to everyone. What?

In a letter to congressional Democrats, the inspector general also said that 100 percent of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while only 30 percent of the progressive groups felt the same pressure.

As the numbers break down, there were 292 Tea Party groups targeted, and 6 liberal groups targeted. It is safe to say that the regime has its own version of the KGB. It’s called the IRS.

IRS Agents, The Targeting Started In D.C.

Raising the issue of ‘trust‘ in the Obama administration yet again. It turns out that the IRS’s targeting of political enemies of the administration was not a result of a few rouge agents in the Cincinnati IRS office. According to agents, present and former, those orders came from Washington. Who is surprised to see that the story we were originally told by Ms. Lerner proved to be a lie and, the reason she plead the 5th? It’s like Benghazi without the movie.

One can only hope that this lawless administration sooner or later is held to account, fired, or jailed.

Gov’t Wages War On Opposition Party

You would be making a mistake to say that President Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of this war against Conservatives and Republicans. His fingerprints are not there.

All this IRS and DOJ abuse is indicative of the appointment of fellow travelers in those departments. A day after the head of the National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, was at The White House, the IRS began to single out Tea Party organizations. What we are witnessing is Liberalism, capital L, pure and simple.

The answer is not impeaching Obama. The answer is repeating in 2014 and 2016 what we did in 2010. Taking the White House and replacing the department heads. Not to do to them what they did to us. But to get government back to doing what it should be doing. The Liberal infestation in government needs to be exterminated.

LiberalismPIX

It was Obamacare that spawned Tea Party opposition all across the country. It was the shellacking Democrats got in the 2010 mid-terms that shocked them into gear. Using government agencies to stop, if not suppress the competition was at play leading up to the 2012 election. Conservative non-profits were denied, through years of foot-dragging by the IRS, a chance to form and mobilize. Conservative donors were being audited by the IRS, Dept. of Labor, and EPA. While progressive non-profits got approved within weeks, whether they had a physical address or not.

Because of this, the President can claim ignorance. He wasn’t told. Oh how awful it was he will say. And he’ll also say that he’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again. That’s the M.O.

With every State, House, and Senate election from now until 2016, just make sure “we don’t get fooled again.”

Whether this is a smoking gun remains to be seen. But see if you can connect any dots.

According to the White House Visitors Log, provided here in searchable form by U.S. News and World Report, the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm that Wednesday noon time of March 31st.

The White House lists the IRS union leader’s visit this way:

Kelley, Colleen Potus 03/31/2010 12:30

In White House language, “POTUS” stands for “President of the United States.”

The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way:

April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.

In short: the very day after the president of the quite publicly anti-Tea Party labor union — the union for IRS employees — met with President Obama, the manager of the IRS “Determinations Unit Program agreed” to open a “Sensitive Case report on the Tea party cases.” As stated by the IG report.

Isn’t that special?

President Obama’s Words, Just Words

President Obama demonstrates, with the help of this stunning one-minute video, starring President Obama, exactly what an “empty suit” looks and sounds like.

Compare what he says today to what he has said in the past, going as far back as when he was a candidate running against Hillary Clinton, and you’ll realize that this guy has nothing new in store for America than what we’ve already seen.

He chastises his opponents for their empty words, just words. He should know what “empty words, just words” are. Beginning with this campaign speech in 2008 when he “borrowed” someone else’s words, and the laundry list of empty words provided in this LINK on this blog.

Same speeches. Same promises. Are you better off?

What are the chances the mainstream media will notice the same playlist on the TOTUS? (Teleprompter Of The United States)

Obama Raising Taxes

In 2010, the last time “the Bush tax cuts” were scheduled to expire (remember the Democrat-controlled congress wouldn’t pass those tax rates into law unless they were ‘temporary?’) President Obama said that raising taxes during a recession would be counter-productive to any recovery. A correct statement. So the bill was extended two years. Notice too how tax cuts expire and tax increases don’t.

Now two years later and in another campaign season, his stump speech is that it was those “Bush tax cuts for the rich” that caused our economic trouble. That, and his claiming ignorance. Ignorance that the economy was so bad that he and his advisers did not know how bad things were. You’ve heard it. It’s all Bush’s fault.

Today Obama wants to keep the tax rates for the ‘middle class.’ Have you noticed how this president calls the Bush tax cuts as “tax cuts for the rich?” The fraud he is perpetrating on the American people is that the Bush tax cuts were tax cuts for EVERYONE, including the middle class. Sans the class warfare.

The ‘class warfare tactic’ demands that they be called tax cuts for the rich, and, it is Obama who is going to give the middle class a tax cut. The reality is the tax rates that Bush signed were tax cuts for the middle class too! Obama likes those, and wants to own them.

The only way Barack Obama can get away with this fraud is the legacy media will allow him to get away with it.

How’s this explanation work for you? ‘It was those tax cuts that caused the economy and jobs to tank. That’s why I want to extend them.’

I don’t know how President Obama sleeps at night when he continues to lie to us to advance his agenda. He does it because it works on the ‘less informed.’ Or as Boortz refers to them, the ‘dumb masses.’ It’s unfortunate for America that Community Organizer Barack Obama can’t be honest about it. And he deserves to be re-elected for that?

Colorado Proposition 103 Gets A Shellacking

Big news in Colorado. The 2008 election made Colorado a Blue state for the first time in 15 years, Obama 54% McCain 45%, buoyed by the support of the state’s growing Hispanic population, a key demographic to victory in 2012. So you would be surprised to see that 63.5% of the voters rejected Proposition 103 Tuesday.

Prop 103 was a $2.9 billion tax increase in sales and income taxes to be used for schools. I think this marks the first time that the ‘it’s for the children’ excuse has not worked. The people of Colorado feel they are paying enough taxes already and expect the state to do the job with what they have.  A notion contrary to liberal dogma.

“We need to do this for our kids,” said Heath, D-Boulder. “Our kids can’t wait.”

“This is a victory for all Colorado taxpayers,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs. “We can’t help children by bankrupting their parents.”

It looks like ‘it’s the economy stupid’ is paramount in the minds of the people of Colorado and spells trouble in 2012 for an administration that only wants to raise taxes more.

Sen. Harry Reid’s Last Left Hook, Filibuster ‘Reform’

Lame Duck and current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has one last Left Hook to add to his former boxing career. He just may attempt to reverse himself, and those in this video, regarding the filibuster by changing the rules in the senate to make it a simple majority.

While echos of the Nuclear Option are still bouncing around the halls, Democrats are just fit to be tied that some of their pay-back legislation was blocked by the filibuster. They would like to ‘fix’ that for the next Congress in ways that they know best. Just change the rules before they get there. The non-passage of their union-support program called Card Check, a Public Option for ObamaCare and Climate Change legislation really ticked them off. And lets not forget the Mexican Dream Act.

Considering how much pride Vice President Joe (BFD) Biden took in legislating against the will of the American people, slipping a few more goodies in on the last day in power could only be a bonus.
