On Non Cooperating With Obamacare
National Review Online, by Wesley J. Smith

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/25/2012 10:41:46 PM

The Hill has an interesting story reporting on Republican governors refusing to set up state exchanges under Obamacare–which could save the states money since they are on the hook for costs in excess of federal grants. That means the Feds will have to do it on a state-by-state basis, a daunting task even for this highly bureaucratic administration. Plus, it is perfectly legal under the law to engage in such passive resistance. Some liberals say that approach isn’t conservative because, in effect, it allows the Feds to run state health care. (As if they care!) I’m not buying.

States shouldn´t touch it. But about half will anyway; the urge to expand bureaucracies burns among in state employees and politicians too.

The idea that the state which sets up an exchange will have the slightest power is laughable. Only pols and some media would try to sell that lie to the people.

Forget about governors not cooperating. Just wait till millions of citizens start "not cooperating" in ways beyond Obamacare. They have no idea what they are unleashing.

I see massive civil disobedience in our future. What happens when people not only don´t enroll in these plans but also refuse to pay the absurd fines? Will they come and drag us away to debtor prisons? What if we resist? What if we start shooting at those who come to drag us away? What if armed neighbors come to our defense too? What if they send in the National Guard...and the National Guard troops side with us?

No. This will not be forced down our throats. This will be Concord Bridge II.

Americans should all move to Red states. Democrats should all congregate in Blue states. Then let´s see who does best, and who starts to whine about Red states having an "unfair advantage" so that Red state wealth can be confiscated and "redistributed" to Blue states. It would be a most telling experiment.

The IRS is supposed to be the enforcer.

Not one person has as yet been hired by the IRS to do the enforcing and the IRS has its hands full just trying to manage its present duties under the idiotic rules that have been forced upon it.

#10, I do believe that the IRS has recently hired 4,500 -- 4,000 are agents -- to enforce Obamacare. This, of course, is just the first round of hiring.

In order for the IRS to enforce this,it would have to be simplified and we´re already seeing how contorted the law is.What happens when an earned income mom is due a $4000 refund? How can they claim they can´t afford a premium or fine? Meanwhile if you´re single with no kids and barely scraping by,you´ll have to pay the fine?

If Republicans on the Hill were smart, they would offer to cut costs by not hiring the 16,000 IRS agent enforcers. Easy way to connect with the people.

Obama War Room: Healthcare Bear

OBAMA: HHS, what´ve you come up with so far to reduce life expectancy and keep costs down?
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS: Our databases have every physician´s roster of seniors, their age, maladies, so forth. We´ll assign attrition goals to each doctor. Meet or exceed natural deaths quotas and earn a bonus.
OBAMA: Good. Those who don´t cooperate we´ll replace with poorly trained physician assistants. Anything else?
SEBELIUS: A flu shot lottery. Fifty million doses ordered, max, for 2013. A one in six chance to get the shot. No exceptions for kids or seniors.
OBAMA: That it?
SEBELIUS: A promotion: for every elderly relative who signs a living will leaving life and death decisions to the caregiver, your wait for any elective procedure is reduced a month.
OBAMA: Nice. Anyone else?
TIM GEITHNER: Close local hospitals. Establish mega health complexes in the worst urban neighborhoods. Suburbans will be afraid to come into the city for care. Less strain on resources.
OBAMA: Still, what about people living longer despite our best efforts?
SEBELIUS: Covered. Section 6402, (A) (2) (b) (1) (c) automatically enrolls people in "Dying with Dignity" programs when they hit 60.
OBAMA: Gimme two more.
DAVID PLOUFFE: Make smoking cool and inexpensive again. Give tobacco growers subsidies; make cigarettes food-stamp eligible. When no one´s looking, slip into the PPACA a clause limiting treatment for those who´ve ignored warnings about the filthy habit.
DAVID AXELROD: Nationalize drug companies. Put cancer research on a back burner and launch a crash program to develop a whole new range of placebos.
OBAMA: Great! Remember, our ultimate goal is to encourage people to flee to Canada for their health care.

#12, I am a tax preparer. It´s my understanding that any premium or fine will come out of any refund. If there is no refund, we are to provide the taxpayer´s bank account info so that the IRS can seize it directly. Never, never, never give your bank info to the IRS.

I refuse to continue my RX for seniors program. I´ll simply pay for my own prescriptions. The h@ll with the gooooberment....

As for my Medicare -- I´m paying my doctors on a self/pay principle. They like the CASH....

During the 60´s and 70´s I had to "endure" the boomers screaming in my ears. NOW it´s my turn for civil dis/obedience. I´ll scream with my wallet...

You know, it´s no wonder that some people have been "stuck on stupid" for centuries, never fully understanding what REAL freedom is about.

Americans educated before 1977 know. It has taken 100 years but the truly sick in this world (whose beliefs are never about real principles, imho, but about their own insecurities, narcissistic fulfillment and culture envy) have once again attempted to destroy true freedom. We shall see if they succeed.

And the irony is, those who have voted for this silent coup, are going to get nothing of what they think they "deserve". It´s laughable. In the end, there is only one way to describe those attempting this coup, who "think they know best": They are motivated in part, imho, from base and lower selves. And from the place of "misery loves miserable company". They are not motivated from the highest and best self, so to speak, although many may think they are. Have they EVER stopped to examine their own motivations? Because in the end, they most always end up hurting the very ones they believe they are "helping"(read controlling).

And so now they think we are all going to be miserable with them, no? As this article describes, don´t bet on it. G-d bless America.

Read Henry David Thoreau´s brilliant "Civil Disobedience." The feds put him in jail because he refused to pay a six-cent tax to pay for the Mexican-American war. He wrote CD in jail: "But a government in which the majority rule in all cases cannot be based on justice."
CD inspired Mahatma Gandhi, and he brought the British Empire to its knees. CD inspired Martin Luther King, and he brought southern Democrats to their knees.
My governor has refused to cooperate with Obamacare. Sanctuary cities. Sanctuary states. Let the blue states continue to rot from within.

Our side needs to prepare: the Obama admin is about to spend a TON of money and time on a media outreach campaign about "how wonderful Obamacare is and what YOU GET because of it."

I have a sinking feeling that the conservative side will just screech on the sidelines instead of countering this media onslaught with mainstream-aimed PR efforts of our own. One painful lesson we should learn from Nov 6: if we just hunker down in conservative corners (TV shows, radio programs, online sites) and do not try to persuade another 10%-20% of everybody else, we will lose. Why? Because the other side is engaged in mega propaganda, never ending campaign, 24/7.

I think these Governors who refuse to create the state insurance exchanges are smarter than this (and other) journ-o-lister realize.

I recall, shortly after 0dumbocare passed, that the clause reads "...subsidies for participants is state insurance exchanges..."

So, if the states refuse, and the feds have to "create" the insurance exchange, then those do not qualify for the subsidy.

If the House stands steadfast, and refuses to allocate funds for 0dumbocare, where will Duh Wun´s (and the Dims) approval rating be then.

One of the lessons I learned from "Atlas Shrugged" was the importance of consent and approval to socialists/statists/communists. They´ll even beat you bloody to get you to say, "OK - love your ideas."

They love us to argue and fight with them because it gives them another opportunity to beat us bloody until we give in. And they don´t care how long it takes because whenever we engage them we give them credibility and power over us.

What they crave is consent, and in their warped minds arguing and engaging is consent. Don´t give them the time of day.

Wave them off with your hand in disgust. Laugh in their face. Walk away. Live your life and the hell with them.

during a recnet visit to my doc, i ws asked by the asst. If I had sex in the last 12 months. I told her it was none of her business. The doctor asked the same thing. I gave the same reply. The doctor said if I had answered " yes" the follow up queations were what type of birth control and protection did I use, and was the sex with women, men or both. Doctors no longer take notes, it all goes into an obamacare laptop.So much for doctor/patient privacy.

The United States Constitution is the supreme law of this Nation. No one in the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branch of government has authority to violate the Constitution.

Obama is a self imposed dictator and should be removed from office. If only we had Representatives with the courage to be statesmen and not just two-bit politicians who love themselves more than America.

#36 I guess you´re saying that we should (individually) refuse to pay the fine incurred by not obeying ObamaCare diktats.

But you do realize that the IRS will be empowered to garnish our wages or bank accounts, in order to steal that money from us?

You might be right that if millions of us refused to pay, we could slow down the IRS considerably. However I have to believe they´d get around to punishing all of us, eventually.

The best solution is for governors to engage in "passive resistance" ... which isn´t so passive after all. This strategy has the best chance of forcing ObamaCare to collapse under its own weight.

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang and Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/2/2014 10:12:15 PM     Post Reply
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum
wage hike is nonstarter
Washington Post, by Greg Sargent    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/2/2014 10:09:11 PM     Post Reply
President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

President Obama expressed the White House’s frustration with news coverage of the Affordable Care Act’s rocky rollout by taking a jab at the press on Tuesday. During his ObamaCare enrollment victory lap speech in the Rose Garden, the president swiped at reporters, who the White House believes were too eager to spotlight every incremental development associated with the site´s botched launch. “I want to make sure everybody understands – in the months, years ahead, I guarantee you there will be additional challenges to implementing this law,” Obama said. “There will be days when the website stumbles.

The White House is claiming that President Obama’s celebratory speech this afternoon in the Rose Garden was not a “victory lap” but it was clear to everyone who watched the address that it was more of a touchdown dance than a sober evaluation of the implementation of his signature health care law. Given the mistake-filled rollout of ObamaCare, the fact that the numbers reported by the government indicated that it had exceeded the seven million goal that had been set as the goal for the open enrollment period, the administration felt it had good reason to spike the ball and

The Most Un-American Speech

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show. The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began

She calls him “the Socialist,” which, technically, he is. But if President Obama had the birthers, Hollande now has the baptismists.

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle.

State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China! Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money. Instead of postpon­ing her trip, a furious Michelle – still seeth­ing over the embarrassing “selfie” Barack recently snapped with a leggy blonde head of state –

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings. Restaurants, states, [and]

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and
