Right, “Affordable Care Act”

07/02/2015

If it is so “Affordable”, why do people need government supplements to afford it? To take more out of the pockets of the workers?

If you want to provide “affordable medical care”, why not open government hospitals? This would provide more jobs in GS positions, and provide said medical care for those unable to afford insurance of their own. And there are now a lot of buildings, that used to be hospitals, that they could refurbish into same.

    What’s good for the goosed is not always good for the bureaucrats, with emphasis on the rats).

    You want to know how the economics of this b.s. works out?

    Before Obama, I had a very basic individual health policy covering my needs very adequately. I paid about $250 a month for it.

    When Obamacare came in, my insurance carrier started raising the premium up to $635 a month and cutting benefits. Naturally, I was pretty much forced to cancel the insurance and apply for Obamacare. Technically, my coverage wasn’t cancelled, I’d have just been a total fool to keep paying for a policy that covered almost nothing and cost a lot.

    With Obamacare, I’m paying $80 a month for about the same coverage I started with. I do have pregnancy benefits and such, but unless I have a spontaneous sex change, I’ll never use them. The total monthly bill for my insurance is roughly $650, of which I pay $80 and the U.S. taxpayer pays the rest.

    Since my coverage is effectively the same, the insurance company (same company as I had before) is collecting $400 a month more than they did with my private policy with $570 a month of the $650 total monthly cost being paid by the feds.

    As much as I like getting cheap insurance, I also know that it’s a false economy being paid for through our taxes and that includes the taxes I pay. The whole thing sucks unless you own stock in a medical insurance company.

    “As much as I like getting cheap insurance, I also know that it’s a false economy being paid for through our taxes and that includes the taxes I pay. ”

    And there’s the magic.

    Yeah and we’re not even getting a very good kiss. Obama really has helped the fat cats and major corporations, the proverbial 1%. Blue Cross is making a profit margin several times what they were making before. With the huge number and massive profit margin, where are they hiding the profits? Where are the investigative reporters running expose`s on the health insurance industry?

    The magic is that Obama hasn’t triggered some mass civil disobedience by the 3%.

    Things are getting very strange these days.

    Please, “Negative excrement.” is that anyway to address your first Black President, ass negative excrement?

    Though I agree the Black Bastard is a pile of excrement, president or not.

    “If you want to provide “affordable medical care”, why not open government hospitals? This would provide more jobs in GS positions, and provide said medical care for those unable to afford insurance of their own.”

    Three words on this Veterans Administrative Scandal.

    If you want really expensive healthcare just look to England where they have the exact system to you which you allude. Remember their is nothing more expensive in this world than government provided anything as they have all the same costs plus a bloated and over paid bureaucracy to administer it.(Thanks Dr. Sowell)

    That being said (because I could not come up with a pithy opening sentence) Obama/SCOTUS care(part of Scalia’s withering take down of John Roberts now brazen sophistry in defense of the indefensiblestarting about page 27) is a front in social and economic warfare being waged on the country class by the ruling class.

    I am the target of this monstrosity.

    It is I who have the pay the full cost of this to support the wish lists of sluts like Sandra Fluke and the payoffs that went to big medicine, big insurance, big pharma and sorry to say those who get subsidies under this debacle. Make no mistake this is a financial gang rape of people like me.

    This whole thing was meant to crash the system through mendacity and bad accounting. Right now, the now meaningless state exchanges are going bankrupt because the insurance pools are older and sicker than the regime claimed they would be. This was completely foreseeable but as usual the regime engaged in their patented “j’accuse” method of public persuasion as amplified by their media, cultural, bureaucratic and academic toadies to paint the financial rapee’s as greedy for wishing to not be financially raped. The immorality and dishnesty just oozes from this law with the viscosity of oil from a crankcase from an engine that was running four quarts low.

    This whole thing is a fraud that makes Enron and Ponzi look like three card monty games. Nothing about the implementation was true; from you can keep your insurance to the lowering of rate by $2,500.00 a year. This is and always was a government mechanism to control peoples access to health care and make people like me fund it at the point of a gun. Meanwhile,while my rate skyrocketed so did my out of pocket costs as my deductibles also increased threefold. This has the effect of limiting my use of healthcare because the overall cost of healthcare is still rising faster than the rate of inflation. Again people who get these subsidies do not see the actual cost of this product and that was part of the scam. Meanwhile the people I subsidize have either equivalent or better access.

    Now with all due respect to Dr. Jeff at least he feels bad about it. Way too many in this country however do not feel the same way and actually spit at me as being greedy because I have the temerity to think that maybe, just maybe, I might have a point that I am being royally screwed. They have been inculcated to the idea that what’s theirs is thiers and what’s mine is their’s, too. This is why there have been no uprisings. Too many people have too much to lose. Keep in mind that part of Roberts risible rationale was that this was already woven in to the fabric of the legal regime. Of course so was the previous system but it was ok to screw those people to assuage the self righteous conceit of the neo-fasict ruling class.

    No consideration was given to the economic or social affects of having one class of people beggaring their neighbor to fund the former’s pretension to a middle class life style: just how many votes can I buy on the part of the NDSWP and faux outrage by the RINO’s.

    Poe says:

    Though I agree the Black Bastard is a pile of excrement, president or not.

    You give Obama way too much credit. He is more that bilious yellow effluent I get from too much beer and buffalo wings. Slimy and unformed.

    Try and have a nice breakfast after that image.

    I know of what you speak. I’m talking about another branch of the military, with the mission to provide medical care. No ludicrous government paychecks, just a military branch. This could be the internship for medical schools, for example.

    FUCK JEB BUSH, MARCO RUBIO, CHRISTIE AND ROMNEY!

    “JEB BUSH, MITT ROMNEY JOIN MARCO RUBIO IN ATTACKING DONALD TRUMP OVER IMMIGRATION COMMENTS: ‘A SEVERE
    by MATTHEW BOYLE4 Jul 2015Washington, DC58

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney attacked real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday, telling a CNN reporter he thinks Trump’s remarks on illegal immigrants were a “severe error.”

    “Do you think Donald Trump’s comments on Mexicans have hurt the Republican Party?” a reporter asked Romney in video carried on CNN on Saturday.

    “Yes, I think he made a severe error in saying what he did about Mexican-Americans,” Romney replied. “And it’s unfortunate.”

    “Do you think the candidates should speak up about that?” the reporter followed up.

    “I think a number of them have,” Romney replied.

    Romney, who wasn’t able to get Republicans to turn out to vote for him in the 2012 election and therefore lost to incumbent President Barack Obama, hosted a slumber party this weekend for two 2016 GOP presidential candidates,

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
    Rubio slammed Trump, too.

    “Trump’s comments are not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive,” Rubio said. “Our next president needs to be someone who brings Americans together – not someone who continues to divide. Our broken immigration system is something that needs to be solved, and comments like this move us further from – not closer to – a solution. We need leaders who offer serious solutions to secure our border and fix our broken immigration system.”

    If Rubio does somehow get the GOP nomination in 2016, 11-time New York Times-bestselling author Ann Coulter says Rubio stands no chance whatsoever in a general election. Coulter says the same thing for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
    “If Rubio or Jeb gets the nomination, it’s going to be President Hillary and expect a full Supreme Court of Ruth Bader Ginsburgs,” Coulter said in a recent appearance on Breitbart News Sunday. “I don’t think either will get the nomination, but I am sure neither of them will become president.”

    As if right on cue after Romney and Rubio, Bush on Saturday afternoon joined the coordinated parade of establishment Republicans attacking Trump.
    “I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think,” Bush said Saturday afternoon in New Hampshire. “No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders – everybody has a belief that we should control our borders. But to make these extraordinarily ugly kind of comments is not reflective of the Republican Party. Trump is wrong on this.”

    Trump has been harsh on Bush, Rubio and Romney. When Romney was flirting with a third run for the White House earlier this year, in an interview with Breitbart News and a news conference on his private jet in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Trump called Romney a failure.

    “I was right in 2012. I said we don’t have a strong candidate, but we had Mitt Romney,” Trump said. “We went with Mitt Romney and he failed. He let us all down, to be honest with you. For him to be running again is outrageous.”

    “He failed,” Trump repeated. “He should have won. [The Obama administration] is a failed presidency. [Obama] is a failed president, and [Romney] should have won, but he lost.”

    Romney is still widely respected in GOP establishment circles but conservatives nationwide are becoming less and less pleased with him. It’s unclear whether Romney will make a difference in 2016 at all, given the fact he’s proven at least twice now that he just can’t win a presidential election.

    What’s odd about this situation is that objective evidence proves that Trump is correct, and there seems to be a politically correct machine pushing all these politicians to attack the truth. For instance, in May, 27-year-old Ramiro Ajualip, an illegal alien, “was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy, which are both Class A felonies in Alabama,” according to the Daily Caller.

    Just a month ago, according to the Dallas Morning News, El Salvadoran illegal immigrant Mauricio Hernandez was sentenced to 50 years in prison after raping a 13-year-old.

    “Defense attorney Andy Beach tried to portray Hernandez, who has no criminal history, as a hard-worker who made dumb decisions because he didn’t know any better. Hernandez grew up in El Salvador and had a sixth-grade education,” the DMN’s Tristan Hallmanwrote on June 5.
    Then there is Bernabe Flores, an illegal alien from Mexico, who admitted earlier this year in a New York court that he raped a 12-year-old girl.

    “Bernabe Flores, 30, pleaded guilty on Thursday in Orange County Court to first-degree rape, a felony. Bernabe was accompanied by his lawyer, David Lindine of the Orange County Legal Aid Society, and a court translator assisted in the proceeding,” Heather Yeakin of the Times Herald Record reported from Goshen, New York, back in February. “Senior Assistant District Attorney Jason Rosenwasser questioned Flores about the crime, speaking through the translator. Flores admitted that on Nov. 9, at a home in the Village of Florida, he engaged in intercourse with a 12-year-old girl.”

    Coulter’s new book, Adios America, cites several examples as well of illegal aliens enaging in rapes and murders.
    One such example in the book is the detailed actions of Honduran illegal alien Milton Mateo Garcia. Coulter details how Garcia is “just the sort of hardworking immigrant we keep hearing so much about from

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and the New York Times.” Garcia had “three jobs”—with Coulter putting an emphasis on the “three” in her book.

    “Even after he was caught sneaking into the country illegally from Honduras in 2013, he wasn’t discouraged. Through sheer pluck and determination, Garcia came right back, and began working as a dishwasher,” Coulter wrote in the book. “(You just can’t get Americans to wash dishes. They won’t do it at any price.) After less than a year back in the United States, Garcia grabbed a twenty-six-year-old doctor walking to her apartment in the well-do-to Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia, forced her into her apartment, and repeatedly raped her. He left with her keys, so when he realized he’d forgotten his bag, Garcia simply let himself back into the woman’s apartment, raped her again, collected his things, and left. Suggesting why there’s no Honduran Silicon Valley, Garcia also took his victim’s cell phone. The cops found him by calling the phone.”

    Another story she points to is that of Mexican illegal alien Palemon Vargas Reyes.

    “Another hardworking illegal immigrant from Mexico is Palemon Vargas Reyes. He would already be a legal resident, on his way to citizenship, if the American public hadn’t stopped House Speaker

    Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) from taking up
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)

    ’s ‘comprehensive immigration reform,’” Coulter wrote. “(The media learned their lesson: Henceforth, they will not inform us when Congress is considering an amnesty bill.) Reyes owned a construction business! He’s a married father of five! In April 2014—about a year after the U.S. Senate passed Rubio’s bill—Reyes was arrested for serially raping a fourteen-year-old girl. One of the rapes took place at a job site, so he really is a hard worker. The headline on this story was: ‘Columbus Resident Charged with Molestation.’”

    In yet another example, Coulter details how one illegal alien indicted for child rape charges actually used “Rubio’s talking points” during his plea to the judge during sentencing that he didn’t deserve jail time.

    “In New Mexico, there was a father-son child rape duo,” Coulter wrote. “When being sentenced for repeatedly raping a three-year-old and an eight-year-old, Mexican illegal immigrant Luis Casarez’s argument to the judge that he did not deserve jail time sounded like Marco Rubio’s talking points about hardworking illegal immigrants with roots in America: ‘I have been here for many years’—Casarez said, incongruously, through a translator. ‘That’s why,’ he added, =‘I’ve been working instead of getting involved with problems.’ Other than that one thing. Two weeks after Luis Casarez was indicted for child rape, his son, Luis Casarez Jr., was indicted in a separate case of child rape.””

    RINO Bull Shit!

    I have no problem with LEGAL immigrants, and neither does “The Donald”. People don’t seem to have listened to his whole statement, only cherry-picked the offensive bits.
