Obamacare Is Still Vulnerable
National Review, by Michael F. Cannon

Original Article

Posted By:f64, 11/10/2012 8:48:13 AM

President Obama has won reelection, and his administration has asked state officials to decide by Friday, November 16, whether their state will create one of Obamacare’s health-insurance “exchanges.” States also have to decide whether to implement the law’s massive expansion of Medicaid. The correct answer to both questions remains a resounding no. State-created exchanges mean higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less protection of religious freedom. States are better off defaulting to a federal exchange. The Medicaid expansion is likewise too costly and risky a proposition.

Comments:
The author offers 13 reasons not to set up state exchanges, all excellent. Too bad no one will listen.

Kansas won´t participate, thanks to Governor Brownback. He did offer a very clever caveat: if any legislator wants to introduce a bill to join and fund an exchange, go ahead...make the voters´ day.
Just this one thing is doing a lot for our morale this week!

We have 30 republican governors. I pray in the name of all that is holy that all of them refuse the state exchange option. We may end up with 50 democrat governors but it seems worth doing. We have yo use every advantage Ploy and dirty trick we know to resist. Heck if the French can have a resistance I know Texas can. How about the other 29?

In the meantime, all health insurance rates are skyrocketing. Our company´s rates just went up 26%. And that´s after last year´s increase of 18%. This is Obama´s poison pill strategy.

You people disappoint me. President Zero wants the feds to run the exchanges - that´s why the fallback mechanism was in the law. This plays into his hands.
Do not forget that he said, about 10 years ago, that we had to have a single payer system, but that there would be some intermediate changes before we got there.
Once the feds run the exchanges, and expand medicaid, single payer is just a short trip ahead.

0bamacare is a horrid piece of legislation. Why isn´t anyone asking 0bama why he and his family are exempt from this wretched mess? The democrats who passed this law are also exempt, along with their families, from having to use this horrid healthcare; why do you think that is? This healthcare bill is full of many new taxes for all of us; every time you sell a piece of property, you wil pay 0bama 4%, he lies when he says you can choose your own doctor. There is a provision in the 0bamacare that helps to pay for union pensions; how does that relate to healthcare? Did anyone read this horrid piece of legislation, and why is there not more outrage?

What we need is legislation that exempts no one from the trojan-horse healthcare bill, government, unions, etc. Let the equal really be equal, not privileged v. individual. Why should the general population tax payers have to pay for the elitists´ entitlement healthcare?

As of right now anyway, Scott Walker isn´t moving forward with this here in WI. Lets hope that holds up.

GOP Senator: We Are the
Party of the 47 Percent
National Journal, by Michael Catalini    Original Article
Posted By: f64- 1/27/2013 11:11:22 AM     Post Reply
Freshman Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas on Saturday chided the GOP over its 2012 electoral losses, saying "Republicans are and should be the party of the 47 percent," a clear allusion to the remarks caught on video by presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the campaign. Cruz, speaking at the National Review Institute summit in Washington, was quick to say he wasn´t criticizing Romney, but that the party lost a messaging battle with the electorate and that comment was just a symptom of the problem.

Three days before 20 year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother, then opened fire on a classroom full of Connecticut kindergartners, my 13-year old son Michael (name changed) missed his bus because he was wearing the wrong color pants. (Snip) I live with a son who is mentally ill. I love my son. But he terrifies me.

Beware the Goodists
Jewish World Review, by Jonathan Rosenblum    Original Article

One of the working papers for the recent Jewish People Policy international conference, entitled "Jewish Identity and Identification: New Patterns, Meanings, and Network´s," posed the question whether the Jewish community´s altered material and political circumstance "entail a long-term shift from identification with the have-nots to identification with the haves." (Snip)But their implicit characterization of the divide between political liberalism and conservatism as one between good people who care about those less fortunate than themselves and bad people who don´t strikes me as highly tendentious.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
