Obamacare’s Cooked Books and the ‘Doc Fix’

May 26, 2010

Oabama-Speak, the fusion of sophistry and Newspeak. Some see it as a gift, others recognize it for what it is, just lies. When will the government lies cease.

Everybody knew Obamacare was nothing more than a gigantic lie from the start. The quality of care would sink, rationing would be result, and the lines would just grow and grow — And costs would be through the roof. But now as the hard evidence on just how big a fraud the whole was, it is becoming breathtaking in the scope of the lies.

It’s going to be tough to live with Obamacare, that’s why it takes so long before disaster strikes. That way the jug eared liar has left the scene. Repeal is the only solution.

AP, the Regime’s Zombies Come Clean

April 23, 2010

Will rationing be far behind? What anybody knew who wasn’t dead or sleeping through the regime’s latest Obama-zombie seance already knew:

The AP reported:

President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law will increase the nation’s health care tab instead of bringing costs down, government economic forecasters concluded Thursday in a sobering assessment of the sweeping legislation.

A report by economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department said the health care remake will achieve Obama’s aim of expanding health insurance — adding 34 million Americans to the coverage rolls.

But the analysis also found that the law falls short of the president’s twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, however, since the report also warned that Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, forcing lawmakers to roll them back.

The mixed verdict for Obama’s signature issue is the first comprehensive look by neutral experts.

Congress’ Health Care Oversight May Hurt Their Own Coverage?

April 13, 2010

Has a group ever more richly deserved this irony? From NRO:

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members. For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available. The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

This health care bill is going to be a noose around the necks of Democrats.

Obama: Hey, Yo, Where’s Our Free Stuff, Where IS It ?

April 7, 2010

I will say it up front, Obama lies, the free stuff is always a lie, only the ignorant buy it at all. The rest know, there is no free stuff, ever. It’s always rationed, people with money get it first, you get your free stuff at the post office back door. If you need something, get a job, they pay you real money to do it, then buy your own free stuff.

Obama zombie voters, Stalin called them ‘useful idiots’,  want their payoffs, free stuff, free health care … And where is it already?

Two weeks after President Barack Obama signed the big health care overhaul into law, Americans are struggling to understand how — and when — the sweeping measure will affect them. How about 2014 for starters. Taxes first rationed stuff and long lines come next.

Questions reflecting confusion have flooded insurance companies, doctors’ offices, human resources departments and business groups.

“They’re saying, ‘Where do we get the free Obama care, and how do I sign up for that?’ ” said Carrie McLean, a licensed agent for eHealthInsurance.com. The California-based company sells coverage from 185 health insurance carriers in 50 states.

America’s ignorant are in for a rough ride … There is no free stuff, only promises of free stuff for votes — That’s how the jive works. That’s it, that’s all there is, that’s all there ever is. Beware the preacher with the bejeweled staff(or teleprompter) … The shuck and jive man. It’s all you get.

What CBO Score ?

March 18, 2010

Okay, so I am looking over the CBO letter, and hit is this disclaimer:

Although CBO completed a preliminary review of legislative language prior to its release, the agency has not thoroughly examined the reconciliation proposal to verify its consistency with the previous draft. This estimate is therefore preliminary, pending a review of the language of the reconciliation proposal, as well as further review and refinement of the budgetary projections.

This suggests that the CBO has been trying to score a moving target, with Democrats making frequent tweaks to whip votes and/or hit deficit targets. So the CBO isn’t sure they’ve scored the final bill — hence they are calling this a “preliminary estimate.”

They are saying the final estimate will be out Saturday evening or Sunday, and didn’t Nancy say the House would have 72 hours to look over the bill and see the scoring and discuss. Why yes, she did say that.

Walgreens: No New Medicaid Patients As Of April 16

March 18, 2010

it’s starting already. A payment dispute with Medicare is causing Walgreens to bail on the program, the second company to do so.

Effective April 16, Walgreens drugstores across the state won’t take any new Medicaid patients, saying that filling their prescriptions is a money-losing proposition — the latest development in an ongoing dispute over Medicaid reimbursement.

The company, which operates 121 stores in the state, will continue filling Medicaid prescriptions for current patients.

In a news release, Walgreens said its decision to not take new Medicaid patients stemmed from a “continued reduction in reimbursement” under the state’s Medicaid program, which reimburses it at less than the break-even point for 95 percent of brand-name medications dispensed to Medicaid patents.

Walgreens follows Bartell Drugs, which stopped taking new Medicaid patients last month at all 57 of its stores in Washington, though it still fills Medicaid prescriptions for existing customers at all but 15 of those stores.

And yes this is what happens when government gets involved in private affairs. From rationing drugs to rationing doctors, Democrat tyranny ahead America

The Constitution: Health Care

March 17, 2010

I read the Constitution and Article 1 Section 7: All Bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives;

Simple not complex sentence with an easy to understand meaning.

But the Senate Bill that the House is supposed to vote on contains billions in taxes, all of which originated in the Senate. So the first question is how is this Constitutional.

We all know how we got here, a Senate Bill passed that was meant for a conference committee, the plan to merge the House and Senate Bills was destroyed by the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts, a conference committee Bill then became impossible. So the process got short circuited.

And now we are stuck with an unconstitutional Bill. Seems like the Senate Bill needs to either be tossed or sent to conference for a new merged Bill.

So where does this go wrong, isn’t it unconstitutional to send this Bill to the president for signature into law? Seems like a pretty cut and dried not going to work proposition.

Virginia: First to Block ObamaCare Mandates

March 11, 2010

While 34 other states have considered or partially passed legislation to ban any federal mandate to secure health insurance coverage, the Virginia General Assembly has passed a bill that is expected to get the signature of the state’s governor.

By an 80-17 vote, the Virginia House of Delegates passed HB 10, sponsored by Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-13th District), which states that no resident of the commonwealth shall be required to obtain or maintain individual insurance coverage. All 17 “nay” votes were cast by Democratic delegates.

Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, has already said he would sign the bill into law, making Virginia the first state in the nation to challenge any mandates that could be handed down from Washington, D.C.

More Than 2,000 Protest Obamacare, Yesterday In St Louis

March 11, 2010

I you ask me, I think we need a little sunshine in the federal government. It’s way past time the federal government was allowed to bribe people in private.

They were protesting a 400 seat closed Obama meeting, closed to the public, closed to the press, invited guest and White House Press corps only. The latest Obama flap happy gabfest was to convince the public that Obamacare was the best medicine — In a closed to the public meeting and teleprompter seance. How does that work?

More than 2,000 protesters turned out this morning in St. Louis to counter President Obama’s health care road show, according to the St Louis Globe-Democrat:

Hours before President Barack Obama was scheduled to speak in St. Charles on reforming the nation’s health care system, more than 2,000 people packed a convention ballroom a few miles away to rally against those reforms.

The occasion was a health care town hall meeting to hear Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, U.S. Rep. Todd Akin and other members of the Missouri legislature will hold a health care town hall meeting and teleconference at Wednesday morning at the St. Charles Convention Center.

Akin and other legislators took to task the reform bill that is now in conference. Kinder and other state legislators said the President’s health care bill would wreak havoc with state finances and a time when Missouri faces major budget cuts.

“This is the worst bill I have ever seen in Congress,” said Akin, who spoke from Washington D.C. via a video feed. Akin said enacting the federal legislation would destroy health care in America and the federal government’s ability to regulate.

Kinder touched on the same theme. He said the bill may destroy the states finances. He also said he supported resident’s opposition to the bill. “Whatever happens with this bill, I stand with you,” Kinder said. “Whatever happens we have just begun to fight.”

I bet this closed door meeting, and the closed door Congressional backroom deals regarding the death care bill, goes along way to convince the public of the need for destroying health care.

Obama: Abuse of Power

March 3, 2010

In the WSJ today:

‘An undemocratic disservice to our people and to the Senate’s institutional role.’

A string of electoral defeats and the great unpopularity of ObamaCare can’t stop Democrats from their self-appointed rendezvous with liberal destiny—ramming a bill through Congress on a narrow partisan vote. What we are about to witness is an extraordinary abuse of traditional Senate rules to pass a bill merely because they think it’s good for the rest of us, and because they fear their chance to build a European welfare state may never come again.

You could say this is a Constitutional crisis, but the lame stream media parrot will never go there.
