Obamacare’s prognosis is terminal – long live healthcare choice!

Obamacare is terminally ill, if one looks at the overwhelming majority point of view in the U.S. - see the tables. Obamacare has already caused over 5 million policies to be cancelled and premiums and deductibles to rise double to triple in many cases.

At present, this law is simply swapping healthcare insurance from those who had it and obtaining insurance for 1/10 of that number for those who didn’t have it.

Anyone can see that Obamacare wasn’t really implemented to provide the uninsured with healthcare insurance – its primary goal was to get everyone on a single payer system where we all must rely on inefficient government officials and corrupt ones from the IRS, which is providing the taxing power to make us do exactly what the government demands.

The website still doesn’t work as of today, as many predicted, and small businesses have now also been delayed from implementation for one year. I thought this was the “law of the land” – how does Obama think he has dictatorial power to change the “law of the land” without the vote of the Congress that approved it late one night without a single Republican vote.

Obamacare has now shown us that emperor Obama is wearing no clothes – and Obamacare will take the shirts and blouses off our backs, unless it is stopped.

  1. I note that the hypocritical Carol didn’t complain about JRM insulting me, by abusing my name. But, in the Left’s Bizarro World, insults are only wrong when conservatives use them, even when they are spot-on accurate.

  2. JRM_CommonSense

    To paraphrase the legend in his own mind, “Aww, did Snussy get his widdle feweelings hurt? Poor baby.”

    SNuss
    I”ve asked you many times not to call names. You haven’t been alone in that request.
    Your response is generally to call more names as quickly as possible.
    Now you’ve set the rules in this matter by your own actions and you want me to once again say calling names isn’t acceptable?
    I feel you wear the mantel of hypocrite rather well in the name calling department.
    Jaybo
    Didn’t I say JRM had explained twice now about his comment? If you want to use that as an excuse for Navyflyers actions, be my guest. I’m going to stick with he has no excuse for his actions. His lack of maturity is very evident.
    If you’ve read this blog for a longtime you know the name calling between SNuss and JRM is ongoing. Not a pretty thing, but began by SNuss.
    JRM never needs me to prop him up. He actually doesn’t comment much on what Ted writes or what many of us have to say here. And he certainly hasn’t always been happy with what I’ve had to say on issues, but we don’t call one another names. Goes to prove it’s possible to disagree without name calling.

    • “Didn’t I say JRM had explained twice now about his comment?”.

      Carol – The answer is yes and….so? Why would it matter that you twice (or ten times) said he had explained his comment? The point is the comment was still incorrect – not misunderstood, not subject to clarification, it was simply incorrect – but all you’ve done is continue to support it. Even your latest comment said ” JRM’s opinion is one held by many when referring to taxes and inflation from the past to present.” I think you’re just incapable of acknowledging that you bought into – and apparently continue to support – his incorrect statement. JRM himself has acknowledged it was incorrect. But please, keep doubling down.

      “(JRM) actually doesn’t comment much on what Ted writes or what many of us have to say here.”

      Seriously? Do you think there is a ghost writer posting all the comments under his moniker? Carol, you are simply delusional. (That’s not name-calling – anyone who believes that has to be delusional).

      • JRM_CommonSense

        The comment was correctly quoted. The comment was not a correct statement about how inflation is accounted for in the tax system. BUT, the comment was not proposing what NavyFlyer10 said it was proposing. Those are three separate and distinct things.

        I have admitted the inaccuracy of my statement. I think that NavyFlyer10 needs to admit the inaccuracy of his statement about what was meant as well as all the other statements about physical ailments he has suggested that I have. If he doesn’t, I fully expect Jaybo to hold him as accountable for his inaccuracies as he has held me. After all he has claimed that he demands this of ALL who make inaccurate statement. Which means there are a number of others on this site he should be jumping all over.

        Let’s see if these two guys can man up and tell the truth. But I will not hold my breath.

        • JRM – Regardless of whether one does or doesn’t like NavyFlyer’s comments about your age, most are able to recognize hyperbole vs. factual inaccuracy. Referring to you as a Depends-wearing, Alzheimer’s-suffering, needing-to-be-fed senior is not going to cause accuracy fits in most people. Again, whether one likes the statements or not, most are able to recognize them for what they are.

          When NavyFlyer summarily referred to your tax statement and subsequent support as “your scheme”, I think most of us understood he was simply referring to your statement about taxes and extrapolating what the upshot would be if inflation was indeed applied to tax rates, not implying you were actually undertaking or proposing such a plan.

          When you once said to me “stay away from the mirror. I wouldn’t want you to see the unexceptionalism of America standing right in front of you.”, did I ask you to prove that I am indeed the unexceptionalism of America? Did I call you a liar? No. I recognized your insult as an insult and didn’t require you to prove it.

          When you once said to me “To quote the person (Ted Biondo) you have chosen as your “mentor”…”, did I require you to prove that I had chosen Ted as my mentor? Did I call you a liar? No. Again, I understood you were insulting me (and Ted) and weren’t truly trying to make a factual statement.

          However, when you once claimed that I “made up” a list of items that came directly from a speech by the President, I did indeed call it out as a lie.

          Also, I don’t recall ever having said I demand accountability of ALL who make inaccurate statements (I will stand corrected if you show that I did). I think it’s a noble pursuit, I just don’t recall having said it. What I did say once in response to you asking that I be the hypocrisy watchdog on Ted’s site was “If I read someone else self-righteously projecting the behavior that he or she displays with great regularity on to others, as you did, then yes, I will point it out.” There’s a big, big key phrase in that sentence.

  4. BTW, Carol, your “Messiah” was found to be lying about Benghazi, per a BI-PARTISAN Senate panel, headed by that noted Leftist, Sen. Feinstein. See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/senate-report-attack-on-us-compound-in-benghazi-could-have-been-prevented/2014/01/15/5e197224-7de9-11e3-95c6-0a7aa80874bc_story.html

    No, JRM, my feelings aren’t hurt. I just consider the source, and, as Mr. T would say, “I pity the fool”.

  5. CarolF964

    I never said the opinion was correct. What I said was many shared it. Nor did I say I agreed with the opposite viewpoint, just that the response to JRM for his thought on the topic wasn’t acceptable debate.
    The last time I talked about money matters, I was accused of being a “me” person. Explaining how I’ve accomplished something is the easiest form for most people to understand. It wasn’t understood, so I’m not taking on taxes and inflation which is a tougher nut to crack.
    I have to say, it’s not on my list of “to do’s” that you understand Taxes, inflation, or even the worst, which is deflation, and how any of it effects your financial lives. Since many of you treat money as politics, it’s not hard to know why you don’t get differences of opinion aren’t based on politics.
    Ted wrote an interesting TIF column recently. Not much interest from the regulars here on the subject. You want to talk about Federal Tax but have no interest in an item sucking the life out your local budget and the mistakes are being repeated over and over again. Ted and I agreed, Rockford hasn’t been too bright in handling TIF matters for a very longtime.
    I have a feeling Ted and myself don’t quite agree on the reasons for the failure, but I certainly didn’t need to call him names to make my point or suggest his opinion wasn’t the correct one.
    Are you getting the subject isn’t the reason for bad behavior, it’s a choice made by individuals?
    I think you’ll find listening to only those who agree with you will become rather dull.

  6. @ Jaybo: Carol is living proof of what Pres. Reagan described, when he stated:

    “Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.”

  9. How about a common-sense alternative to the epic fail that is ObamaCare?

    Liberals keep complaining that Republicans don’t have a plan for reforming health care in America. I have a plan!

    It’s a one-page bill creating a free market in health insurance. Let’s all pause here for a moment so liberals can Google the term “free market.”

    Nearly every problem with health care in this country — apart from trial lawyers and out-of-date magazines in doctors’ waiting rooms — would be solved by my plan.

    In the first sentence, Congress will amend the McCarran-Ferguson Act to allow interstate competition in health insurance.

    We can’t have a free market in health insurance until Congress eliminates the antitrust exemption protecting health insurance companies from competition. If Democrats really wanted to punish insurance companies, which they manifestly do not, they’d make insurers compete.

    The very next sentence of my bill provides that the exclusive regulator of insurance companies will be the state where the company’s home office is. Every insurance company in the country would incorporate in the state with the fewest government mandates, just as most corporations are based in Delaware today.

    That’s the only way to bypass idiotic state mandates, requiring all insurance plans offered in the state to cover, for example, the Zone Diet, sex-change operations, and whatever it is that poor Heidi Montag has done to herself this week.

    President Obama says we need national health care because Natoma Canfield of Ohio had to drop her insurance when she couldn’t afford the $6,700 premiums, and now she’s got cancer.

    Much as I admire Obama’s use of terminally ill human beings as political props, let me point out here that perhaps Natoma could have afforded insurance had she not been required by Ohio’s state insurance mandates to purchase a plan that covers infertility treatments and unlimited OB/GYN visits, among other things.

    It sounds like Natoma could have used a plan that covered only the basics — you know, things like cancer.

    The third sentence of my bill would prohibit the federal government from regulating insurance companies, except for normal laws and regulations that apply to all companies.

    Freed from onerous state and federal mandates turning insurance companies into public utilities, insurers would be allowed to offer a whole smorgasbord of insurance plans, finally giving consumers a choice.

    Well Hello JRM LIAR!!

    Miss me? I wish I had the time you have to post on this blog, but unfortunately or fortunately (dependent upon one’s perspective) I don’t.

    So where oh where to start?

    Let’s start with your request for me to pay back the $ 2.5 million. I offered to pay directly to you, but you refused to accept it and wanted me to pay it to the DoD. Then you stated that you didn’t think that I had the property to do it.

    So tell you what JRM LIAR. When you post your financial statements on the blog, I will post mine. Until then you don’t know what I’m worth or not worth. Quite frankly, as I’ve told Carol ME ME before, I hope that she has more money than Gates or Buffet. I hope the same for you. Quite frankly, I don’t care how much wealth you have or don’t have and whether it is more or less than me. But if it brings a smile to your face that you think I can’t pay you in property, or any other means, then you go ahead and smile LIAR Boy.

    As far as paying the $ 2.5 million back to the DoD, they haven’t asked for it, so I assume they were satisfied with the job I did for them. But maybe you should write them and tell them how they wasted their / taxpayer money on me. If you can convince them to send me an invoice, then I will pay them.

    Then you get all bent out of shape when I state that my tolerance for lies is much closer to Christie’s, and you state: “…We are all completely impressed that you would throw your wife out of your life the first time you caught her committing adultery and lying to you about it. … and who obviously has no love for his wife.

    Sounds like you must be very tolerant of a wife who has possibly stepped out on you many times. More power to you.

    But thank you for becoming the blog’s marriage / relationship / love counselor. We have been desperately searching for someone.

    When I showed your comment to my wife, she laughed her beautiful firm tight arse off as she has told me that she would personally castrate me with no pain medication. You see both of us feel we have a great marriage and don’t need to step out. Plus the five kids keep us dam busy and tired. But as with anything in life, I’m sure there is a chance that she would step out on me. That’s why I covertly had a GPS microchip implanted into her. I mean what the hello, if Prez LIAR can authorize NSA to spy on Americans, I’m entitled to implant a little itty-bitty GPS chip.

    Now tell us LIAR Boy, what is the magic number of lies and adulterous affairs for you and your wife?

    You really tire me out, LIAR. You first denied making your ridiculous tax statement and thought you could get away with it until I called you out on it. Then you deny its meaning, even though the educated on this blog — Snuss, Wilson and Jaybo – easily understood the meaning of your ridiculous statement.

    And I’m still waiting for your proof of me claiming to be “… a world famous fighter pilot.”

    Then you tried to sneak the “117 IQ” statement into the blog hoping that you could get away with it. But alas, you didn’t get away with it.

    Your problem is that you lie until you are caught and then try to weasel out of it like Prez LIAR does with his LIARcare lies.

    So JRM, get back on your meds and take them by the barrel, get your depends changed regularly, stop trying to get out of your straight jacket and be advised that PCH will be showing up at your door with $ 2.5 million as a gift from me – your BFF Navyflyer10.

  11. NAVYFLYER10

    Carol ME ME,

    Just answer the question that JRM LIAR got so upset with me about.

    How many lies will it take for you to write someone off?

    If you think that question is an inappropriate question, then why didn’t you call out your friend JRM LIAR and tell him so when he asked it of me?

    Another double standard for you ME ME?

    Please your answer??

    The whole blog is waiting. The whole blog is waiting. The whole blog is waiting.

  14. A bit off topic, but an interesting “Who am I?:

    https://www.youtube.com/embed/rrjU-HBkmLE?feature=player_detailpage

  15. Carol where was the government? I mean there is no such thing as charity right? I am confused, these folks needed shelter and food and where was the government?
    “Our store is about a mile and a half from the interstate and it took me two hours to get there,” manager Audrey Pitt told Fox News’ Todd Starnes. “It was a parking lot as far as I could see.”
    Some of the stranded drivers just abandoned their cars and ended up at the Chick-fil-A to take shelter.
    From there, Meadows and his staff decided to lend a kindness to all those stranded motorists. They jumped to their stations and cooked up some 200 sandwiches, then threw on their cold weather gear, trudged out to the highway, and began to hand out food and water to the stranded motorists.
    “The meal was a gift–no strings attached,” Starnes reported.
    So, why the generosity? It’s in the company’s mandate, Pitt said.
    “This company is based on taking care of people and loving people before you’re worried about money or profit,” she said. “We were just trying to follow the model that we’ve all worked under for so long and the model that we’ve come to love. There was really nothing else we could have done but try to help people any way we could.”
    The store also refused to sell anything that day. Everything they did that day was for public service.
    “We’re not open for business,” Pitt said. “We’re just feeding people who are hungry.”

  16. CarolF964

    Wilson, you’re speaking about the snow problem in Atlanta?
    Three cheers for the chick-filet who jumped up in the moment and helped people.
    I never said charity doesn’t exist. I did say charity can’t do it all as some have suggested.
    What we all saw was a State and Local Government ill prepared and not doing the job people deserved to feel would be done in that kind of emergency. Illinois is ill prepared for a major problem if communications go down during an emergency. Most communities don’t have a good back-up plan or even a plan to partner with a neighboring community to keep residents informed.
    Since I’m a native of California, I’ve been through many serious earthquakes, fires, floods, and know the value of being personally prepared and how fast the gov moves here and can set up to help those in the worst hit area.
    You’ve seen in the news we are in a serious drought. In my community, which I think isn’t an exception, they robo call every resident to ask they cut back 20% water usage and to let us know they were opening the wells the following Monday. Our water may look & taste different, but it’s safe. If you hang-up on the robo call, they keep calling until they are sure you’ve gotten the message.
    I know how to check my gas meter for leaks and how to turn it off if I find them. How to turn off my water at the street if the pipes are leaking to my home. Have extra bottled water on hand and understand my hot water heater can be a source. Keep cash on hand as well because if electricity goes, so does the ability to use credit cards, and you never keep your gas tank near empty. No electricity, no gas. Ca. tells you very clearly to be prepared in earthquake country.

    My community is less than 100,000 and we’re near the State Capitol. I’d be asking if I lived in Atlanta why they don’t robo call residents? Why the school district didn’t call to say keep kids at home during that storm?
    The problem isn’t Chickfilet helped, it’s they can’t help feed the needy everyday and remain in business.
    Government failed in that instance, but it works more than it fails. And it’s big enough to have the means to get places and do things charities & often smaller gov can’t handle.
    The best example I can think of was the last big earthquake in the ninties in the San Francisco area during the World Series Game. Power went down and the fire hoses couldn’t get pressure for water. Residents grabbed up the hoses and ran with them to the ocean to help the fire department. Residents could never have done what the fire department did, but they could help and make a difference. So charities and gov work together on many programs. Charities can’t carry the load alone.
    How many times do you get a request for help from the Rockford Rescue Mission? They get lots of checks near the holidays, and far less year round. The need is year round.

  17. More ObamaDon’tCare failure facts for Carol to ignore:

    Obamacare to cut work hours by equivalent of 2 million jobs: CBO

    (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s healthcare law will reduce American workforce participation by the equivalent of 2 million full-time jobs in 2017, the Congressional Budget Office said on Tuesday, prompting Republicans to paint the law as bad medicine for the U.S. economy.

    In its latest U.S. fiscal outlook, the nonpartisan CBO said the health law would lead some workers, particularly those with lower incomes, to limit their hours to avoid losing federal subsidies that Obamacare provides to help pay for health insurance and other healthcare costs.

    The biggest impact would begin in 2017, CBO said, because major provisions of the law will be well under way by then. The CBO said there would be smaller declines in work hours that would occur before then.

    Work hours would be reduced by the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs in 2024, said the agency, which earlier predicted 800,000 fewer fulltime jobs by 2021. The bottom line would be a slower rate of growth for employment and compensation in the coming decade, according to the report.
