Obamacare’s bold vision turns murky:
Goals of health reform act downsized,
promises broken

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Write2Right, 11/29/2013 6:46:56 AM

The Obama administration promised to have the Obamacare website working smoothly by Saturday, but even President Obama knows this latest deadline is another target that his team is likely to miss. Only about 25,000 Americans were able to enroll on the federal government’s HealthCare.gov website in October, when most people instead encountered computer errors. And although Mr. Obama and his top advisers vowed to fix the problems by the end of November, they have retreated from that pledge in favor of a scaled-back promise by Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that the website will be working for “most

The notion that Obama has ever had a "bold vision" is downright hilarious. He´s somebody´s sock puppet and that´s all.

Another long-term death spiral has begun, and I predict that it will continue until the year 2020. That is the death spiral of liberal politics and the media. It began with the implementation of Obamacare and will be strengthened in November 2014 when the Republicans take the Senate and hold the House. It will accelerate in 2016 when Ted Cruz is elected President. And it will play out throughout Cruz’s first term as he and the Republican House and Senate dismantle this media that has come so close to destroying our nation.

When the liberal media is gone, the current wave of destructive, liberal politics will cease to exist.

Bold? More like old. Marxism has been around for a while. Must take exception to the graphic of Obama´s 2 terms. The first should be a toilet. The second one - said toilet filled to the brim; a real 4-flusher.

Nice thought #3 but the Marxist media isn´t going anywhere, they will simply step up their attacks on conservatives. The Marxist media is totally infested with Marxist professor taught ideologues that believe America is too big, too powerful, too rich, bring it down at any cost, not unlike our current leader is trying so hard to do using Alinsky´s bible.

The bill is designed to kill off the private insurance industry and it will accomplish that if It is not repealed. even if it is we will be left with hundreds if thousands if new Medicaid enrollees to pay for. The epic world class failure of the website was not in the plan, however, and the media hasn´t been able to bail Obama out of that - except for a few very lame attempts to blame the Republicans who are against it and didn´t vote for it.

#3 That´s the perfect storm but there is plenty of destruction and rule by fiat to come our way.
The gloves are off of the communist and they will keep pushing by all means, mostly illegal.
As long as the Squirrel Pawed President nests in the Oval Office with his feet up on his desk the ACA will never get repealed. Obama holds the veto pen in his little sissy Squirrel paws.
Just remember the news will always be great about the implementation of this disaster because the propaganda arm, Obama media, controls the news cycles.

I think of the suffering people who are in the midst of chemotherapy and have suddenly lost their insurance. Then, when they try to purchase new insurance, they face Obama´s pathetic website and, of course, higher prices. They also risk having their identity compromised because of the website´s lack of security. This is a national tragedy and the buck stops on Obama´s desk. Unfortunately, he´s on the 14th green and couldn´t care less. History is not going to be kind.

Notice one thing. In the jaws of defeat, Liberal hosts like Chris Wallace have begun asking Republicans what they will do with the so called 30 million uninsured if Obamacare fails. Since the narrative has been set that they now all have the "right" of coverage, the talking points turn to "OK, what´s your plan to cover them?". When Sarah Palin was presented with this trap by Wallace she would only say that she doesn´t believe any number (30 million) the White House puts forth. She wouldn´t bite but RINO´s will.

They are preparing for a rebellion, all the bullets, anti personnel vehicles, and other necessities of civil war are being accumulated as we write. The surprising part is that local communities are going along with the plan, perhaps unwittingly. Better start dumping every City Council person or other government body that is buying or accepting this stuff from the Feds.

With all of this going on, I find it surprising that people who one punch others on the street are mostly getting away with it. Just think, if you buy a new car with GPS car tracking, the government knows at all times where you travel. Of course if people just stopped buying new cars, that would be stopped in a hurry.

Same with your cell phone. ObamaCare is just another method of control and stolen personal information by a government run amok.

How impossible for the propagandists, who are ultimately irresponsible for all of our corrupt nation´s Capitol crime wave, to come clean !

What if, every good American gave up on Washington,
And devoted a full totally focused attack on all the High Ministers of communist propaganda, Sawyers Pelley Williams all their propaganda bosses, all the big corporate sponsors, ie ALL of the destructive teams of deceivers who are propagandizing this great nation to ruin, by mafia protecting each and every destructive criminal In high office ? The propagandists have made all this damage a reality and they need to be punished!

Former Pope Benedict, in one of the few times he has broken his silence since stepping down nearly a year ago, has branded as "absurd" fresh media speculation that he was forced to quit.Church law says a pope´s resignation is valid only if he takes the decision in full freedom and without pressure from others.

In an unusual move, the American Foreign Service Association, which represents more than 16,000 career diplomats, is expected to weigh next week whether to publicly oppose some of President Obama’s controversial recent ambassadorial nominations.AFSA President Bob Silverman, at a news conference Tuesday to discuss the association’s new guidelines for selecting ambassadors, said he would ask the 28-member board whether it wanted to take a formal position on three Obama mega-bundler nominees: Colleen Bell (for Hungary), George Tsunis (Norway) and Noah Mamet (Argentina.)

Super Bowl-bound Justin Bieber arrived at a New Jersey airport Friday on a charted jet that reeked of marijuana — and he spent hours in federal custody while the aircraft was searched, law-enforcement sources said.But the pint-sized pothead, who according to reports burns through $8,000 a week of weed, was released from custody at Teterboro Airport when drug-sniffing canine cops came up empty.

A year after saying it didn’t matter what sparked the vicious attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling the incident the “biggest regret” of her stint as secretary of state.“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton told an auto dealers conference in New Orleans on Monday. Clinton didn’t acknowledge any particular blunder in the days or weeks leading up to the 2012 siege that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. Critics blame unmet security requests by the tragic US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack. Clinton

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to sign an executive order requiring that janitors, construction workers and others working for federal contractors be paid at least $10.10 an hour, using his own power to enact a more limited version of a policy that he has yet to push through Congress. The order, which Mr. Obama will highlight in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night, is meant to underscore an increasing willingness by the president to bypass Congress if lawmakers continue to resist his agenda, aides said. After a year in which most of his legislative priorities went nowhere,

And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive.
