Why must the American people suffer
when even so many Democrats
don’t want Obamacare?

Washington Times, by Sen. Rand Paul

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/28/2013 12:15:47 AM

Earlier this week, in an effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz, some of my Republican colleagues and I took to the Senate floor with the intent of making Washington listen. The American people have made it abundantly clear that they do not want Obamacare. In fact, a majority of elected officials, the same officials that voted to implement this health care mandate, do not want it, either. Last summer, in a 5-4 decision authored by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the Supreme Court wrongly concluded that Obamacare’s individual mandate could stand. As a consequence of the court’s ruling, starting

´´I find it absolutely despicable that Mr. Obama, his administration and the elected officials who shoved this mandate down the throat of Americans are now giving themselves waivers. The president is also giving his friends waivers. Mr. Obama’s behavior mirrors that of a captain jumping overboard, abandoning his own sinking ship.´´

I agree completely, Sen. Paul. It is despicable. We don´t get to use that word very often, but it certainly is apt in regard to those low-down no-good politicians. Keep fighting that evil growing in our government, please. And thank you.

I too find it despicable. I am sick and tired of the elite in congress passing laws that they do not apply to themselves. It is not just Obamacare, they have also exempted themselves from insider trading laws. They get rich while they are in congress.

All three branches of the US government are corrupt. When does the housecleaning start? And I don´t mean by voting, that process has been corrupted too. We are officially a third world country.

Why must we have Obamascare? Because of its name.

If it were named after Pelosi or Reid or Schumer it wouldn´t matter so much.

But a health care plan with the name of the first half white President must be inflicted upon us. Besides, Halloween is coming.

Think of it this way ~ what if the Nazis won WWII ~ they´d have imposed fascist methods on this country. The individual mandate would have required yout´ to don uniforms and dig ditches for the party elite so that they could install irrigation systems for their estate shrubbery.

The Speaker of the House would be this Italian woman with mafia roots and Fascist party leanings, and the only dissenter allowed would be so-called ´consumer advocates´ whose fathres were Falange party officers.

Cuba would be a vast, desolate wasteland........

The ONLY solution is to throw these bums out. That is not going to happen unless the apathetic get off their duffs and actually vote and get involved. We have the government we deserve because of the fools who either voted for the ONE or voted by not voting.

So many times a single vote makes the difference. A single senate vote from a New England state could have prevented the ADA ever coming to the Senate floor for a vote, or a single Supreme Court vote could made it all unconstitutional. So many other examples.

Next option? Encourage the lofos to boycott this mess and don´t sign up. They´re not going to contribute anyway and have better healthcare than those working for a living who can´t get health insurance. Overload the system with people needing healthcare (not insurance) and demand to be helped.

It´ll be the indigent living off the freebees who will clamber for a chair on the deck of this sinking ship.

I called my Senator and got a lovely little condescending note explaining why he, Senator Burr, knew that voting with Cruz and Lee was not the right way to go about this problem. He did say that he would vote to go along with the same healthcare mandate for Congress as the rest of us.....must not be much chance of that happening. It was nice to see these other Senators finally say no to obama. I am so tired of watching the wimpy go along to get along group who look at the problems from the point of view of the press. Like it´s the repubs. who want to shut down the government not obama for not negotiating. We did not start this country with that attitude. Wimpy will just not cut it any longer. Brave men and women who stand up to seemingly impossible odds is what started this country and the only hope we have of getting it back on the right track.

Obamacare is leading to the final cherries on the top of the Socialist agenda.

Unfortunately Socialism spells doom for the middle class. The American middle class that was the envy of the world in the 1950´s will vanish. Their wealth will be sapped to pay for it.

Politicians? They are convinced that we will learn to love this future given time. At least the next generation and newcomers will.

The title question is easily answered: because the far left dreams of a single-payer health care abomination and this was as close as they could get. They rammed it down our throats and now it has become the sole ´accomplishment´ of a failed presidency. They cling to it for comfort even though the American people would prefer to see it rest on the ash heap of history.

Because Washington DC, Congress and all that the federal establishment is ... is at war with the citizens of America.

Something truly, spectacularly evil is in charge and you .. YES YOU .. are what they strive to eradicate.

What you should be asking yourself is why hasn´t our vaunted military stepped in and shut all of this down under the Oaths to Protect and Defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic ..

What´s hated by unions
has businesses wary
and dropping coverage
like the ´Skins secondary?

Causing thousands of layoffs
taking it´s toll?
What´s so good for people
that they´re forced to enroll?

What´s a law that´s so good
folks who passed and defended it
see it and got waivers
to be exempted? It´s

like Olestra, at first
it sounded hip
but we quickly found ourselves
dealing with a whole lot of sh...

Obamacare, Obamacare
Unions and businesses both in despair

So to recap, young people,
your hours get cut
and your income goes down
and your premium´s up

But can you imagine the firestorm that would erupt if congress brought back the draft and exempted their families from it? We should bring up that analogy when explaining to lo-fo´s why this is so wrong.

# 32 You are badly misinformed.
19 Republicans voted for cloture ( Rule 22 , in place since 1917 ),
the parliamentary procedure to bring an issue to a vote.
This was not a vote on policy , it was a
vote on a procedure.
Republicans are not allowed to cast
procedural votes, now ???
They´re called traitors for saying Let´s Vote On It ???
The most important facts :
Not a single Republican Senator ( 44 ) voted to strip out defunding from the House CR.
Not a single Democrat Senator ( 54 ) voted to
keep the defunding in the CR.
I notice you only have Republicans listed .
In order to keep defunding in the CR-it would have required 6 Democrat Senators.
How come the Heritage Foundation and Ted Cruz haven´t mentioned that salient fact ?
And then.. an additional 15 Democrat Senators for a total of 21 to override Obama´s veto.
It´s really bizarre that Ted Cruz and the Heritage Foundation have always focused
on the anti Obamacare Republicans and never a peep about the Democrat Senators actually
required to defund.

#34 Procedure is Policy!!!!!!!!!!! when you give the Democrats the ability to erase de-funding Obamacare from the bill. A procedural vote allowed the vote on policy. Thus, Richard Burr and other compromising con artists voted for Obamacare. There would be no vote on policy, if the procedure was approached and voted on correctly. I saw that dumb joke Corker on video....do you work for that dummy. The gig is up, the con is done Richard Burr and Corker....we have your number....you too McConnell.

The bottom line remains power over all the areas of our lives. The Constitution loses its credibility to govern us daily. I believe the GOP is well aware of this and want to be on the side that gets to rule the slaves, not be among them. We have lost our ability to be effective citizens in our Republic. We will be ruled over, taken over, stripped of assets and
made to beg for what we need. Am I being cynical? I don´t think so.

To address the question: Why must the American people suffer when even so many Democrats don’t want Obamacare?
Because Obamacare, or Obamadontcare as I call it, isn´t about improving health care in the United States. It is about further weakening the United States and breaking us financially. It is the nail in the coffin with Francis Fox Piven swinging the hammer while a dead Richard Cloward smiles from the grave. With about 80 members of Congress being members of the Communist party, some being very proud and vocal about of it, and who knows how many more lean that way it isn´t hard to figure out.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking
mortgage relief could get

Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/11/2014 10:28:52 PM     Post Reply
Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

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

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'

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

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

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

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
