Can this patient be saved?

President Obama’s health reform law limps past its biggest milestone in critical condition. Monday was supposed to be the deadline to sign up for Obamacare insurance that would start on Jan. 1. Obama then granted a signup extension to midnight Tuesday — the latest in a series of desperate, short-term fixes. And with enrollment way short of projections, the President’s promise of near-universal coverage recedes into a doubtful future. According to the White House’s no-doubt optimistic count, the first half of December saw an enrollment surge of 1 million, on top of the 1.2 million in October and November.

The primary theory behind ObamaKKKare is that people will willingly pay perfectly good money for inferior service in the knowledge others will benefit.

I think IRS professionals could have told them about that theory ~ they have to prosecute hundreds of tax dodgers every year. They´ve even ended up in running gun battles with such folks!

Then, there are the medical insurance companies and hospitals and doctors ~ they could write books about deadbeats they have known.

That´s why the industry standard has been to CUT YOU OFF FROM MORE SERVICE when you don´t pay or have not made arrangements for payment.

Obama started out eliminating that standard leaving him nothing but the running gun battles, and to start off the first volley has been exceedingly widespread ~ HISTORIC EVEN ~ levels of civil disobedience!

So, America´s first black President doesn´t know a thing about the civil rights struggle of the 1960s ~ and civil disobedience!

He will be brought down by the people of this country.

Who does Obama think he is - king? Since when did the Constitution give him the power to change a duly-passed, signed law? I read yesterday that Obama has made 14 changes to the originally passed PPACA; yet, there isn´t a peep from the Supreme Court. Does anyone feel like they are living in Alice´s Wonderland?

The media bullies have cowed any opposition that might come forth against Obama and his unconstitutional waivers. Unfortunately, the unwillingness of the Supreme Court or the legislative branch to reign in Obama is pure cowardice on part of these so-called leaders. The people of this country have been the ones trying to hold this imperial president accountable. If the people don´t press on with their opposition, there will be none to speak of. The leadership in this country is sorely lacking for a multitude of reasons, the primary one being self preservation of political power. We are now experiencing the flip side of the greatest generation who made the ultimate sacrifice to secure our freedom against tyranny.

This article ends with a litany of disasters that ObamaCare has inflicted on the nation. But it fails to mention to the lack of security on the site that has allowed a floodgate of corruption and thievery to erupt onto unsuspecting Americans who:
-- had perfectly good health insurance cancelled;
-- were required to spend hours and hours navigating malfunctioning websites;
-- found that the replacement coverage they are offered excludes the doctor they trusted;
-- and, were presented with costs beyond their wildest expectations.

Now, they are about to discover that thieves who took advantage of Obama’s incompetence have raided their bank accounts.

Will this nightmare never end?

The Utopian fantasy, known as obamacare, has not failed. It was sabotaged by the useless fools that tried to implement it. The Utopian fools that created obamacare know it will work, if only they could find people as smart as they are to deliver it to the masses. The Utopian fools would do it, but they are busy working on their next Utopian fantasy.

The Utopian fools are too ignorant to understand their patient was still-born.

No obamacare can´t be saved but it won´t be repealed either the funding by the Republicans guaranteed that. It will be a complete disaster but the Democrats and msm will continue to say "“It’s worth the trouble, it’s going to be a glorious thing,” Mrs. Pelosi said. The elite GOP and Rinos will continue to help fund and fix obamacare. "It´s pretty clear that the president was re-elected," Boehner added. "Obamacare is the law of the land." With idiots like pelosi and boner running the country no wonder we´re going down the toilet. Well " we the people" enjoy the ride down amnesty for illegals is next.

The thing that concerns me is that they are not idiots and knew this would fail. That it was part of the plan to hurt Americans, as much as possible, beyond repair. Just like the 17 Trillion dollar national debt being insurmountable.

It doesn´t look like we´ll be switched to socialized healthcare...there won´t be ANY healthcare! The government plan can´t work and the insurance coverage is nearly destroyed.

He was raised by people who hated the U.S. and all it stands for, including its Christianity. The Phil Robertson thing is a snapshot. So, Obama leaves God out of every speech, practically bows to Mecca, and thumbs his nose at Christians. Look at the pastor in captivity in Iran. Not a peep from Obama. The leftist assault on Christianity is staggering.

Obama doesn´t seem to care about any legacy. His goal of an unrecoverable America is his goal. I´ve said all along he´s Enemy #1 in the White House. The greatest fraud ever perpetrated on this country. He´s spent millions (from taxpayers) hiding who he really is.

Obama, perhaps by no coincidence, looks and acts like a boy pharaoh. No whimsy is too outlandish for him to impose on his people. And no people in seats of power are brave enough or foolish to point out the excesses of the boy pharaoh. They understand the wrath of Valjartiti, his oracle empress and protector.

Together, they rule outlandishly and travel outlandishly. Vast caravans of guards, Nubian maidens, eunuchs, peacocks, and chained elephants.

It´s a sight to behold...to be living again in the time of the boy pharaoh...when so many bowed before his outlandish whimsies and excesses. King Putt. And someday, when he is taken from us, his eternal monument of his reign, the Stynx.

The one thing besides the size (pages) in the Obama non-health care monstrosity that was a clue of it´s worthlessness was all the exemptions for people not to participate.
If it were a good bill/law the president, Congress, unions, government employees et al would have participated.
The entire bill was never meant to work. It was a set up of theft of taxpayer money to be doled out to those Obama saw fit. Even the website set up was a theft of money by the company that Valarie Jarrett has interest in.
A Best Buy Geek Squad could have made the website work.
It´s a communist cabal of know nothing misfits stealing all it can and destroying America in the process for their own gains.
Republican are complicit in the destruction of America and are to be blamed if they are communist too.

That was an excellent analogy, #10.

It doesn´t matter how much money or effort they put into obamacare from this day forward. It´s an overpriced house that has been built on a foundation of clay that is already crumbling. Healthcare.gov is only the bay window in the living room. Any further construction will only add more weight and hasten the inevitable collapse. It will come down like one of the twin towers did on 9/11/01 and even then, half of the country will be surprised.

Obama is here to stay, his presidency will be remembered as a fascist coup, and the Majority of Americans elected him twice.

With that said, I believe America will pull it´s self out of the muck and mire. We will be stronger for it.

New safe guards for vetting and individuals records will be required for public review.

What I do find interesting is the fact that no records, college transcripts, or other public records coming forward during the last 5 years. That is the scary part.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

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.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management.

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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?
