Obamacare architect Rockefeller:
It´s ´beyond comprehension´

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/10/2013 7:17:19 AM

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller, one of the towering architects of Obamacare, on Tuesday openly criticized program managers for not moving quickly enough to build the system, warning that if it gets off to a bumpy start it will just get worse. Decrying the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as way too complex, he warned the acting Medicare director that Obamacare is "so complicated and if it isn´t done right the first time, it will just simply get worse."

Another "duh" moment for a delusional democrat. They are coming out of their stupor one by one.

He is complaining that if it doesn´t move fast enough the goal of complete socialist control might be compromised. Nothing to cheer about.

Not to worry. When it screws up and makes things worse, we know exactly who the Democrats will blame that on.

If it´s that bad to begin with, it should never have been implemented so thank you for proving our point.

As an aside, and on behalf of the profession, I would like say that as an actual licensed, practicing architect for over 30 years, I´m sure I speak for more than a few of us who are bloody well sick and tired of every low-life, rat-bas****, manipulative schemer being referred to as an ´architect´. Find another term! We have an actual legal right to it.

All of the "architects" of Obamacare should be held accountable and jailed, as should EVERY single person who voted for it!

Voting for Obamacare should also DISQUALIFY the politician for office.

I seriously mean this. It´s unforgivable.

Our Fairfield County, Ct. congressman, Jim Himes, ran on the fact (shown with his two cute daughters in a cutesey ad) that Daddy read every bit of every bill he signed on to-----and he signed on to Obamacare full force. And do the voters here say a word? Not so much. I am sure there are Democratic Jim Himes all over the Country, but voters just don´t seem to grasp, or are too "busy" to grasp---until it hits THEM in the face, and by then........... At least Rocefeller sees that there "may" be some problems.

The ACA was designed to fail, no one has been trumpeting how it will improve anything. Deflection of blame will be job one, leading to a complete takeover of healthcare. Despite the smoke and mirrors, pretty simple.

Someone no doubt told the, ahem, engineers to "put it all in there and I mean everything because we are getting everything we want. We paid off everyone and it´s going to pass".

So we end up with 2700 pages. Perhaps if they hadn´t been so absolute and greedy, made it smaller as in well under 1000 pages it would be easier to manage but noooo. Guess the democrats never heard of the saying, "be careful what you ask for". it is going to be about as efficient as a gas guzzling RV.

The lefties have definitely lost some steam in defending ACA and I always get in the last word, always. Asking them about exactly why the exchanges were delayed until 2015(to avoid the 2014 election carnage) is met with silence and will end the argument quickly.

The democrats responsible for forcing Obamacare on an unwilling majority of Americans are traitors.
Just wait until Americans are left to die without treatment. There won´t be a place in the country for democrats to hide.
This insanity will kill thousands.
We were endowed by our Creator with LIFE, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
democrats have stolen it all and violated the Constitution.
Unlike the Brits, Americans will NOT que up quietly waiting for a doctor.

This is what happens when you write a 2700 page piece of legislation and in every other paragraph write "as the secretary of ... fill in the blank ... determines".

Apparently Rockefeller was a true believer. He actually believed that the goal of the "Affordable Health Care Act" was designed to fix something, thus once again proving Stalin´s comments about useful idiots.

John D. Rockefeller IV, dimwitted democratic dunce from West Virginia, is a man without personal achievements, and is a trustfund tittybaby, as is his wife, daughter of the late Chuck Percy. Together, the Rockefellers have enjoyed the D.C. scene for decades, and as a bonus, he found a position for her at PBS, which is about the same as Michelle´s no-show job at the U. of Chicago hospital.
I have seen Ro0ckefeller interviewed on TV, challenged with a videotape of his prior comments on a subject, where he denied what was said in the video.
If there is a dumber person in the U.S.senate, that person is not known to me.

At EVERY moment,every campaign stop, every TV or radio interview, the GOP needs to remind people that ONLY Democrats voted on Abominationcare.

Ask them, is your insurance premium going up? Are the deductibles? How bout your company insurance costs? Your employer paying more which means less for pay raises?

That´s all Democrats forcing the bill without care and consideration.

Republicans had more modest approach to fixing the system, but the Democrats didn´t want to listen.

Really, Jay? You´re so smart -- because Democrats are always so smart according to the LSM -- why couldn´t you see this coming? Remember, Jay, "we have to pass the bill before we know what´s in it." That was one of those "smart" comments by then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. She´s another "smart" Democrat.

Democrats are either stupid or evil or both. My sister is a Democrat. She´s not evil. She´s just stupid when it comes to politics! I love her. But she´s stupid. And so are you if you´re a Democrat.

There are stupid Republicans. But being a Republican doesn´t automatically make you stupid the way being a Democrat does.

It´s not about medical care. It´s about controlling each and every one of us.

Thanks to electronic medical records, they will know your age, height, weight, blood pressure, and whatever else becomes a mandatory measurement. Then with the statistics of outcome-based medical care, they will decide if you are "worthy" of various treatments. If you´re too old, too fat or too fill-in-the-blank, free medical care becomes no medical care.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan. "I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

The first suspected Heartbleed hacker is a 19-year-old kid with a faint mustache, short black hair, and a disposition that’s so diffident his lawyer often refers to him as “a nerd, a stereotypical computer geek.” But he’s a computer geek, his lawyer says, with a history of hacking.

Who’s Attending Eric Holder’s Off The

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
