October 25, 2013

Isn’t this what Ted Cruz was trying to tell people???

Builders of Obamacare website say more testing was needed.

The contractors, CGI Federal and Quality Software Services, said the two weeks of testing done in late September wasn’t enough to ensure the many components from different contractors operating smoothly in unison before the entire system went online Oct. 1.

Government Blew It

October 25, 2013

Finger pointing what big govenment failure is best at … Obamacare Website Contractors Point Fingers Back at Obama Admin.

Contractors who built the web portal for the Obama administration’s health insurance marketplace said Thursday the site’s crippling problems trace back to insufficient testing and changes that government officials made just prior to going live.

One other Obama scandal to watch

May 15, 2013

On top of everything else, the House Energy and Commerce Committee announced on Monday that it will probe Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ efforts to shake insurance companies down for cash, to help “educate” the public about the ObamaCare disaster it hates.

That would be the same ObamaCare that will employ the corrupt Internal Revenue Service as enforcers.  What else does anyone need to know about it?

Those congressional subcommittee hearing rooms are going to be steaming like short-order grills for the next few months.

 


REPORT: HEALTH PREMIUMS TO SOAR 400%…

May 14, 2013

It was all sold as a lie about costs from the beginning.

ObamaCare Costs To Zoom…

Internal cost estimates from 17 of the nation’s largest insurance companies indicate that health insurance premiums will grow an average of 100 percent under Obamacare, and that some will soar more than 400 percent, crushing the administration’s goal of affordability.

New regulations, policies, taxes, fees and mandates are the reason for the unexpected “rate shock,” according to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which released a report Monday based on internal documents provided by the insurance companies. The 17 companies include Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Kaiser Foundation.

So much for bending the cost curve down … ehhh! Nothing in life is ever free, no matter who is telling you the lies.

 


Markey: GOP’s climate-bill revision is downright “Orwellian”

September 17, 2012

Actually isn’t it Orwellian to try and pass off an obvious hoax as truth???

Did I misread that, or did an elected U.S. representative just refer Republicans’ efforts to scale back the Obama administration’s ever-encroaching regulatory “climate change” regime as “Orwellian”? Because, correct me if I’m wrong, but

Or·well·i·an

[awr-wel-ee-uhn]

adjective

of, pertaining to, characteristic of, or resembling the literary work of George Orwell  or the totalitarian future described in his antiutopian novel 1984  (1949).

As in Green is the new Red …and it seems to me that the only thing “Orwellian” here is the rate at which President Obama has increased the federal government’s regulatory authority, most specifically by catering to environmentalist special interests and expanding the power and scope of the Environmental Protection Agency. From The Hill:

A liberal Democrat says House Republicans have summoned the spirit of George Orwell’s 1984 by dropping language about climate change from their bill to thwart regulations that affect the coal industry.

“I am not surprised that House Republicans would decide to throw any reference to climate change down a legislative Orwellian memory hole. This has been the most anti-environmental House in history,” said Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. …

The bill to block climate rules, sponsored by Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.), has now been rolled into a larger package to curtail White House policies that Republicans contend will harm coal mining and coal-fired power generation.

It takes aim at a number of other Environmental Protection Agency air pollution rules; restricts planned EPA rules governing management and disposal of coal ash, a waste product from coal plants; and restricts potential Interior Department rules on coal-mining wastes; among other provisions.

Yes, the environmentalist movement has long since infiltrated the federal bureaucracy, is steadily and exponentially presenting more barriers to economic growth, and is systematically killing off jobs and entire industries it has oh-so-wisely and magnanimously decided it doesn’t like, all at the cost of making Americans and the world poorer and choking off innovation; but the free marketeers are the ones who are being Orwellian.

Riddle me this, Rep. Markey….


Ahead of election, House Republicans set for aggressive push against Obama

September 11, 2012

The House Judiciary Committee plans to storm back into Washington, D.C. as Congress comes out of its summer recess with a Wednesday morning hearing examining President Barack Obama’s “abuse of power.”

It’s the latest attempt by House Republicans to take an aggressive stance against the Obama administration in the final weeks ahead of the election.

The House Ways and Means Committee is drilling into how the Treasury Department terminated the pensions of 20,000 non-union Delphi salaried retirees during the 2009 auto bailout. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa remains intent as ever on his quest for justice in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. And, House Energy and Commerce committee Republicans are planning on continuing to draw attention to the failures of Obama’s green energy programs – with emphasis on Solyndra — as they’re moving forward with new “No More Solyndras” legislation.

According to Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, who is scheduled to visit the House side and testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, the hearing has a packed agenda aimed at confronting the Obama administration over its “unconstitutional” uses of power.

Among other things, Lee’s office said in a release forwarding information that was provided by the House Judiciary Committee, the hearing will focus in part on the president’s “prosecutorial discretion” — or administrative DREAM Act — immigration policies
