Sen. Manchin (D-WV) to Introduce
Bill to Delay Individual Mandate

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Breitbart News

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/23/2013 4:26:54 PM

On Wednesday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) revealed that he was working on a bill to delay the Obamacare individual mandate. He said in late September that he would support efforts to delay the individual mandate, but this is the first time that Manchin has signified that he will lead a legislative effort toward such a delay. Manchin’s spokesperson, Jonathan Kott, said Manchin will not back Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) proposal for an indefinite delay to work out insurance exchange glitches, but that he would instead work on a bill “to delay the pena

So what´s the big deal? This just prolongs the disaster. If he was really courageous he would introduce a bill to repeal the whole thing and start all over. There aren´t enough negative superlatives to describe the abomination that is 0bamacare.

Manchin finds another way to pretend to be a conservative at little or no cost to him or the Democrats.

Manchin, being a Democrat, has his own woes from the EPA´s war on Coal.

But for the moment it is popular and safe to kick the Individual Mandate.

He will be against sin next week and propose free apple pie just before Thanksgiving.

Do something worthwhile for once Manchin...call up fellow traveler Henry Waxman to testify under oath in your Senator Rockefeller´s committee to find out exactly what he and the majority in his committee were trying to accomplish in writing this ACA legislation?

It´s too complicated and resembles a Trojan Horse for eternal government servitude.

HENRY WAXMAN needs to explain himself...!

There is no "start all over" unless you mean repealing the ACA and removing all encumbrances government has imposed on insurance company and tort reform, as well as removing the taxpayer trough as an incentive to any and every link in the health care chain.

I love to say that. Almost as much as the Ted Cruz haters love to point to that as the reason the folders and back-stabbers had to do what they did.

Manchin´s a panderer. He can´t be trusted at all. The good folks of WVA really need to Sunnyside Retirement Village.

C´mon, you guys. You´re not reading between the lines as you usually, skillfully do.

stinkycare is foundering. It´s over, man.

Done. Kaput. stinky inc. can still wreak plenty of havoc, but the obama/soetero whatever-care fraud thing is over.

It´s over. Cut off the head of a rattlesnake and it will wiggle around for awhile and the head can still bite you, but it´s still deader than a tub of kennedys.

It´s over. The coverup and hustle are the new challenge. That´s where we are now.

Every one of you is or knows an IT professional who can break this designed disaster down in a few minutes.

Right this minute, who´s insured? Seriously, think about it.

Everyone who knows anything is running for cover, and the lofos are waiting for their free lollipop.

There is no cover, and there is no lollipop.

This is how desperate our disaster truly is.

The BIG problem with all these plans (defund, delay) is that the law changes the mandates of insurance which is why policies are being cancelled.

Any bill to defund or delay has to revoke the coverage mandates. You know a "free" colonoscopy AFTER you spend $6000 of deductibles and $10000 in premiums. Free, get it. The mandates are what is killing people´s private insurance.

The House CR sought to delay the individual mandate.
But NOOOOOO, Barry and the Dems could not agree to that and shut down the government just so they could blame the Repubs.
So now Manchin is proposing a SB that does exactly what the House CR did?

Ted Cruz was trying to help the People.
3 weeks ago the idea was radical and extreme, but now since the democrats suggest delaying the individual mandate it is a better idea than sliced bread?
Any self respecting Republican would insist the name of the Bill be "the Cruz was right Bill".

If there is a "delay" on any part of Obamacare I´m wondering what happens to the 300,000 residents of FL who just this week received letters from their insurance company that they are no longer going to insure them? They HAD great insurance, now, as of January 1 they will NOT have insurance AND probably won´t be able to get any from Obmacare! Thousands in CT were informed of the same thing this week. What happens to those people who were perfectly happy with their insurance, but now won´t be covered BECAUSE their policy did not meet the ACA requirements. Where do they go now? WHAT A MESS Obama and his Henchmen have created!

It´s a disaster facing the Rat Party. They sensed it a few years ago, but could not buck the momentum. Now it´s obvious. 2014 looms a catastropic political bloodbath for them if something is not done to stop the madness. It may actually be unstoppable now. Øbama´s clay feet show all the way up to his butt crack. The media are getting antsy. They want it fixed and it is unfixable. Soon, the lo-infos will find out they have been led down a blind alley and are about to get mugged by their idol himself. OMG! So, they bring out this half-fix POS- in truth, they have no idea what to do. And turning to their petty little man in the WH is no help what-so-ever. He´s off on another vacation.

Big deal. This only provides a one-year reprieve from the penalty/tax for those who couldn´t, or wouldn´t, buy health insurance in the first place. The rest of us who are having our policies cancelled, or being charged more $$$ for less coverage, are still screwed.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

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

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

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

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.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.
