Fiscal Cliff Deal Kills Insolvent
Obamacare Element

Breitbart.com, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 1/2/2013 9:11:05 AM

As part of the fiscal cliff deal reached by Congressional leaders and Vice President Joe Biden last night, the so-called CLASS Act – an integral component of Obamacare – will be repealed. CLASS Act – the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act -- is a new long-term entitlement program that even Democrats recognized was completely unsustainable It would pay $50 per day for long-term care services for anyone who had paid into the system for five years. In order for the program to work, people would probably have to pay $3,000 per month into the system.

Its the begining of the long road to a complete rework of the Obamacare legislation. Obama doesn´t really isn´t concerned since his name will be forever associated with some major legislation even if it eventually becomes unrecognizable in the future. Fortunately it won´t take 75 years for America to come to grips with his real legacy as it did with Roosevelt.

If it wasn´t repealed yet don´t expect Biden and the Democrats to honor the deal later. Washington no longer works that way. And Obama can simply veto it anyway.

Most probable outcome, CLASS will be changed to substantially increase the $50 and yet hold premiums down thus producing another financial drain.

When asked, Biden can say changing it, not repealing it, was the deal made. And the media will too.

It´s all a ponzi scheme: Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, SSI. Bernie Madoff is a righteous man compared to Obama et al.

It Begins: Pumped Up GOP
Grassroots Rally in New Hampshire
Breitbart's Big Government, by Jonathan Strong    Original Article

Manchester, New Hampshire — The intra-GOP bloodshed that followed the 2012 elections is far from over, but the activists and officials who came together for an energetic day of speeches from top Republicans here showed an increasing clarity of purpose as the midterm elections gradually near. “To repeal Obamacare, we have to win elections,” New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte said in kicking off the event, dubbed the first inaugural “Freedom Summit” and hosted by two heavyweight conservative non-profits, Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul reiterated his calls for the Republican party

The latest issue of Al-Qaeda´s Inspire magazine contains an article about using car bombs in U.S. cities as well as abroad during election seasons, both presidential and congressional, as well as on Christmas and New Years Eve. The cities and areas listed in the piece include Washington, D.C., New York, Northern Virginia, Chicago, and Los Angeles. "America is our first target, followed by United Kingdom, France and other crusader countries. As for the field target for the car-bomb, you have places flooded with individuals, e.g. sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gathering."

IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must
Be Paid with Tax Return
Americans for Tax Reform, by John Kartch    Original Article

President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obamacare individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

   

 

  


 
Happy New Year to All You
Decadent, Dictatorial Americans
Breitbart, by Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 12/27/2013 11:35:56 AM     Post Reply
Happy New Year to all you decadent and dictatorial Americans. Yes, I mean you, the people of the United States, where an elite of non-democratic dictators trickles its immorality—and incompetence—down upon the masses. What do I mean? Aren’t you Americans supposed to be free? Sure, you are free: You are free to obey the ukase—that’s an old czarist word for a decree that must be obeyed, or else—of a judge acting on an ideological agenda. So the judge is free to do as he pleases, and then you are free to do what you’re told to do. Americans, how do

Democrats Say Pass Extension of
Unemployment Benefits First; Pay Later
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 12/27/2013 10:54:07 AM     Post Reply
Interrupting their vacation on Thursday, two Democrats -- Sen. Jack Reed of R.I. and Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan -- demanded that Republicans go along with a three-month extension of long-term unemployment benefits without immediately paying for them. The cost of a three-month extension is around $6.5 billion. Losing jobless benefits is like being hit by an "economic hurricane," said Rep. Levin, who sits on the House Ways and Means Committee. "And so that's the reason why, in the past -- much more often than not -- there has not been a pay-for.

Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate leadership, said Sunday that “the number one issue in the 2014 election is not going to be Obamacare or the deficit. It is going to be who can get the middle class going again, who can expand middle-class incomes, who can create jobs.”(snip) Schumer is honing the Democrats’ message for 2014, when they face mid-term elections that look to be challenging due to the waning popularity of President Barack Obama,...

If A&E decides to ax "Duck Dynasty" at least two other networks are eager to snap up the hugely popular reality show according to TMZ. Merrill Sport, owner of the Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel told the website that he´d be thrilled to pick up the show. "We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech," he said. "...A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don´t like the programming, they need to either let ("Duck Dynasty") go or shut up and pay them."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

Analysis: Obama Celebrates
Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
