Do you remember the famous ABC radio commentator Paul Harvey? I do! Paul Harvey spoke to millions of Americans on the radio at noontime each weekday…this gentleman was such a treasure of wisdom, knowledge and pragmatism for the citizens of America…and elsewhere where technology permitted…
WHAT AN ACCURATE PREDICTION!
It was 51 years ago, April 3, 1965. An amazing prediction. Do you remember the famous ABC radio commentator Paul Harvey?
His comments were titled, “The Rest of the Story.” Millions of Americans, Canadians and others listened to his programs which were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations worldwide.
When you listen to this, remember this commentary was broadcast 51 years ago.
It’s short…less than three minutes. You will be amazed…
As Nancy Pelosi rushed the ACA Obamacare Bill through Congress she urged the Members of Congress to vote quickly so that “we could find out what is in the Bill”. Only Democrats listened to Mrs. Pelosi and the Bill was narrowly passed with one vote with only Democrats voting for the Bill…not one Republican. And there was a lot of pork ($ for Senators and Congressmen) thrown at the Bill to get it passed. Remember?
The Bill is proving to be disastrous financially and healthcare wise for the American Health Care System and for the millions of people that had been seeing their doctors for years. The system certainly needed modification to be more effective however it did not need total destruction to solve the selfish goals of a political party that knows that if they control the healthcare of this country that the citizens will become totally dependent on the government. This was a very successful capitalistic country and does not need or deserve “total transformation” by progressive politicians.
We Are Finding Out What Is In The Bill
If you are happy with the ACA Healthcare Bill aka the Obamacare Bill you can keep it!
This one was as predictable as it gets: Saturday Night Live poked fun Saturday at Barack Obama for taking a selfie with the Prime Minister of Denmark during the Mandela memorial, as well as the fake sign language interpreter who stood next to Obama and other leaders during the ceremony.
Be prepared for eligibility, payment and information protection debacles—and longer waits for care.
By MICHAEL J. BOSKIN Dec. 15, 2013 6:24 p.m. ET
The White House is claiming that the Healthcare.gov website is mostly fixed, that the millions of Americans whose health plans were canceled thanks to government rules may be able to keep them for another year, and that in any event these people will get better plans through ObamaCare exchanges. Whatever the truth of these assertions, those who expect better days ahead for the Affordable Care Act are in for a rude awakening. The shocks—economic and political—will get much worse next year and beyond. Here’s why:
Norah O’Donnell’s 20-second news brief on Monday’s CBS This Morning is the sole Big Three network mention so far of the Wall Street Journal’s Sunday report about a “troubling element” of ObamaCare – exorbitant deductibles with the no-frills plans available on the health care exchanges.
O’Donnell zeroed in on the item by reporters Leslie Scism and Timothy W. Martin, who cited a new report that found that “the average individual deductible for…a bronze plan on the exchange…is $5,081 a year“: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]
Scary isn’t it? Do we want to wake up as a country to see this?
Hello to all Americans especially our Congressmen, Congresswomen, Senators and Supreme Court Justices! And to the media as well!
Could America Wake Up As A Banana Republic?
Millions of us believe that the very existence of the United States of America as a Republic is at risk. We are vitally interested in knowing what each of you In Washington are going to do about it. All of us cannot afford to be inside the Beltway…however we can message you in many ways…and hopefully you pay attention to us when we try to talk with you! We really believe that you have been elected to represent us…that we do not work for you…and that we deserve your attention at all times.
When we can’t understand your inside the Beltway power struggles we want to hear clearly about what is going on as quickly as possible. How about being so transparent with all of those that want to can get under the same Tent?
It is obvious those on the Right have the same goals and principles…we need to find a way to get there in unity without destroying each other verbally. We must have many factions within this Party to survive. We just happen to believe that history has shown that the more conservative members of this Party are the driving force, the energy, the emotions, the passion, the vigor, the vision, the commitment, and are the real American Patriots to drive and lead this overall mission.
If you know another faction that has more qualifications to lead the Republican Party, then we ask you to let us know who and where they are immediately. The real conservatives and independents of this Party have little respect if any for those labeled as “Republicans In Name Only” or “RINO’s”. These RINO members need to decide what they are for and commit to some purpose other than destroying the Republican Party members with criticisms and allegations. There is very litttle favor for you in this Party if your mission is to build your own credibility while destroying the credibility of others and the Party.
The Progressives on the Left celebrate whenever there is any news of differing ideas and opinions within the Republican Party. The truth is that we have a terrific party of diversity…many opinions…races…religions…political beliefs…preferences…and not just an empty minded ideological “attack and destroy the opposition at all costs” approach. For the thinking person the Republican Party offers so many opportunities for intelligent expression, representation and achievement that is in the best interests of people and the country. To me this is totally unlike the party on the left or the Democratic Party where it seems that only the Party Bosses benefit and the rest of the people continue to get shafted year after year… for more than 70 years now. Where is the recognition of reality?
As a concerned citizen I question if there are any actions that the Legislative and Judicial Branches of the U.S. Government can take now to limit the overreach of a President who disregards the Constitution and acts if he has total authority to do whatever he wants for whatever purposes he decides are in the best interests of the country. He has stacked the Attorney General’s office with his own and is attempting to do the same with important federal courts.
Is there any member of our government in the CONGRESS, the SENATE, and the SUPREME COURT that can take any effective actions to stop this incessant bombardment of the American People with unconstitutional actions and waste of the taxpayers money? It is obvious that many of you in Washington are just as upset as we are with much of this…is there any reason why Americans must tolerate the injustices being dictated by this Administration?
As a country are we powerless to say to the Executive Branch of the Government…you are harming this country more than you are helping and we cannot tolerate three more years of this socialist style overreach that harms and puts so many people at risks at all times. We not only have the internal American societal issues to deal with, we must face our international relationships, and this requires effective leadership that is consistent with the history, power, traditions and Constitution of this country. We sincerely need to take actions to protect our country from becoming another Banana Republic!
Since President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, he has changed it five times. Most notably, he suspended the employer mandate last summer. This is widely known, but almost no one seems to have grasped its significance.
The Constitution authorizes the President to propose and veto legislation. It does not authorize him to change existing laws. The changes Mr. Obama ordered in Obamacare, therefore, are unconstitutional. This means that he does not accept some of the limitations that the Constitution places on his actions. We cannot know at this point what limitations, if any, he does accept.
Sebelius says changes prompted by technical problems
10:57 AM – December 13, 2013
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Thursday announced efforts to extend certain Affordable Care Act (ACA) deadlines, which are intended to ease the transition to coverage in the law’s new insurance marketplaces in 2014.
Sebelius said that changes were prompted by the various technical issues that plagued the online marketplaces—particularly the federal health insurance exchange—when they launched in October, which hampered consumers’ efforts to enroll in health plans.
13 December, 2013 / by Website Editor / in Nobama, Obamacare
A House of Representatives resolution is being sponsored that could lead to President Barack Obama being tried in court for not faithfully executing laws. The resolution is being backed by 30 Republican congressman and led by South Carolina Congressman Tom Rice. Rep. Rice is demanding civil action be taken against Obama, which could potentially lead to impeachment if the case goes to trial and he is convicted.
“President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda,” said Rice in a statement. President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents. This resolution allows the House of Representatives to bring legal action against the Executive Branch and challenge recent actions, inactions, and policies.”
The Democratic President and Senate Speaker continue to refuse to negotiate with the Republican Speaker of the House on any proposal made on behalf of the American People. It is as if the Democrats are the supreme rulers of this country and have no obligations or responsibilities other than promote the agenda and absolute control by the Democratic Party.
Democratic Senators and President Elect To Shut Down Federal Government!
The President has just spoken on tv outlining who and what will be impacted by a Federal Government shutdown at midnight tonight. His primary point was to paint the most extreme dire circumstances of such a shutdown. He explained clearly that this shutdown was not necessary if the Republican Congress would agree with his demands for having everything that the Democrats want.
The President did not explain any reasons as to why he refuses to negotiate with the Republicans representing the American People.
Let it be known that for President Obama and Harry Reid to negotiate in good faith could avoid the shutdown of the government. The truth is that President Obama has negotiated more than 1200 changes to ObamaCare to date…he just refuses to negotiate with the Republican Congress!
The Democrats continue to draw from their media supported playbook of nasty name calling including anarchists, racists, tyrants, Hitler, arsonists, extremists, hostage takers, from another planet, extortionists, envious of Putin, cats and other names. Ironically this works for them as the American public listens to all this and prefers to let the Democrats tell lies, act like spoiled brats and use the blame game to shift the responsibility to the Republicans via a fawning media . The Democrats are clearly responsible for shutting down the government as they refuse to discuss or negotiate anything. I wonder if a concerned American People will ever stand up again to the liars in the room?
Just to clarify my political position, I do not have an active affiliation with any political party. I am an independent conservative, believing in the U.S. Constitution, with efficient government at all levels, with minimum taxation. I believe in honesty, integrity, fairness and helping only those that need help. The Federal government has grown far beyond these boundaries. I vote for the best and most honest political candidates that are closest to my core values.
My objective description of what I saw and heard today…
The first observation is about the work ethic of the House versus the Senate. The House worked over the weekend and past midnight on Saturday night. The Senate did not work over the weekend and elected to come to work at 2:00 pm today. This seems to be highly indicative of a comparison of the work ethic differences between the two Parties in Washington. Within an hour the Senate had voted to decline all proposals that Congress had made over the weekend. The Senate Democrats declined to discuss or consider a one year delay in implementation of ObamaCare and deletion of a medical equipment tax, both very reasonable proposals that would benefit Americans.
Would you help me to understand why (54) Democratic Senators each earning $174,000 per year plus benefits would turn a deaf ear to the American People, refuse to negotiate reasonable proposals, and elect to shut down the Federal Government? The POTUS continues giving untruths to the American People saying that no president has ever negotiated the Budget of the country. This is absolutely untrue as it has occurred many times.
Are these Democratic Senators doing this for your benefit or the Democratic Party?
Why do the President and the Senate Majority leader refuse to negotiate with the Congress to achieve solutions that can benefit many more Americans?
Why does the President negotiate with Russia, Syria and Iran but not with his own country… the United States? And negotiating is using the word very loosely. This is all being led by other countries…not by America.
What are the Democrats attempting to accomplish? Is it to protect the President’s reputation and his signature legislation?
Is it to attempt to blame the Republican Party for the shutdown of the Federal Government? This has worked for them in the past and the media fully supports this strategy. They are so insistent upon using name calling that polarizes the uninformed and illiterate against everything that conservative Americans stand for. Most all liberals will first call you a name like Tea Party or the like…anything to try to destroy your credibility and reputation. Why? Could it be to gain more votes and elect more Democratic congressmen and senators? Their comments are bad mannered and are intended to make you feel like a second class citizen. Liberals have done this for years to intimidate nice, honest, well mannered people. Do you enjoy these tactics?
Is it to ignore the fact that the ObamaCare Plan is meeting massive resistance and is destroying America in so many ways including the following…
How can the Democrats ignore this?
American physicians are running from the plan
90% of jobs created since Obama installed are part-time jobs (30 hours or less)
Costs of ObamaCare are increasing healthcare premiums
The POTUS told us our healthcare costs would decrease by $2500 per family
You cannot keep your doctor as the POTUS told us we could
You cannot keep your health insurance plan as the POTUS told us we could
Real wages are decreasing in the U.S.
46 million people are on foodstamps
The FDA uses programs to promote SNAP and increase EBT free food credit cards
103 million people are not employed in the U.S.
Small businesses limit employment to less than 50 employees to avoid penaties
Many large businesses and hospitals are forced to lay off employees
ObamaCare if ever implemented still leaves 30 million uninsured
This is a political power play only to implement a federal heathcare program
The United States prints $85 billion of unsecured paper money every month
The Federal Government is out of control with many wasteful programs
And on and on…
The Republican Congress at 7:00 P.M. this Monday night is working on an additional proposal to send to the Senate as early as possible. It is up to Harry Reid as the Senate Leader and President Obama to come to the table, negotiate reasonably and solve these issues immediately. At 10:15 on 10/01 Harry Reid refuses to consider any new proposals offered.
The President and Senate continue to act irrationally and very much like spoiled children. They insist on “their way or the highway”. Not a healthy situation for Americans.
As a concerned American citizen, it seems imperative that we challenge every Congressman and Senator who is supporting the current socialistic programs and to replace them with responsible legislators. We must get the people out to vote who are not voting. Failure to do so is to doom this country to this current and future socialistic mediocrity.
The Obama Administration and the liberal network media are employing a tyrannical strategy of deception and frightening people…making them suffer as much as possible…attempting to influence the economic markets by questioning level of volatility in the stock and bond markets…disregarding the wishes of more than 60% of the American people regarding Obamacare…having the IRS and other government agencies investigate people without cause…news media reporters browbeating Republican Party Leaders about their rights to have opinions and take legitimate stands as they should…shutting down WWII Cemetaries in France and closing US War Memorials. It is like children saying to their parents…if we can’t have our way then we will lay in the floor and scream shrilly and do nothing…and you can’t make us do anything. In my humble and patriotic opinion these actions are nationally and internationally irresponsible by this Democratic Administration.
Never in the history of this country have our political leaders been more tyrannical than during this Administration. And supported by a fawning media that gets tingles up their legs and are in the tank for supporting the attempts to destroy a great country. I suggest that It would be good to have many vacant ships available now for all those who don’t like America and our great U.S. Constitution to board up and find themselves another country that they can destroy through Socialism…as they are attempting to do in this country.
Frankly, I don’t think it is going to work guys. There are too many good Americans who love this country and who are willing to do whatever it takes to keep it from destruction…and my friends…this Administration and many of their supporters are now taking their theatricals, name calling and brow beating a bit far
A great majority of all Americans want negotiation and settlement of the issues…as all responsible adults, especially politicians who are being paid to do. It is time for the President to come to the table and begin negotiating with what is important to the American People..not just what is important to President Obama’s personal agenda and the Democratic stranglehold on the American People. We have a U.S. Constitution that gives power to three branches of Government and it appears that again the President wants to pick and choose what parts of the Constitution he will adhere to by refusing to negotiate with one of the branches of government.
So, now it is obvious to everyone who has not been living under a rock that we are having a government shut down. As many have already discussed, the Democrats are now trying to force the blame of this on the heads of the GOP. The primary way they are trying to do this is by using scare tactics, making predictions of gloom and doom. Fortunately, it seems that at least so far, the people are not falling for it.
The next stage of this shut down is going to be essentially political posturing. Actually that is all most of these things are anyway. So, do not be worried about this affecting really anything that you need to do, unless possibly you work for the government.
The Obamacare/shutdown battle has spawned myriad myths. The most egregious concern the substance of the fight, the identity of the perpetrators and the origins of the current eruption.
President Obama indignantly insists that GOP attempts to abolish or amend Obamacare are unseemly because it is “settled” law, having passed both houses of Congress, obtained his signature and passed muster with the Supreme Court.
Yes, settledness makes for a strong argument — except from a President whose administration has unilaterally changed Obamacare five times after its passage, including, most brazenly, a year-long suspension of the employer mandate.
D-Day veteran memorial cemeteries located on Omaha Beach in France are facing closures. This is the latest casualty in the budget battle in congress, joining the long list of services affected by the government shutdown. Visitors are being turned away as the cemeteries have their gates locked with posted signs of apology.
Rep. Barrow Discusses Problems with Affordable Care Act Rollout
Congressman John Barrow
Today on tv we heard and saw 3.5 hours of Congressional testimony by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the subject of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. This is the signature legislation of President Obama, driven through the Congress and Senate by only Democrats…without a single vote in favor by any Republican. The initial cost estimate by the CBO was $800,000 billion and now 3 years later that CBO estimate is now some $2.6 trillion. The ACA Bill was passed for the purposes of aiding some 30 million people who do need health care. There were many ways to accomplish this without affecting 1/6 of our economy as this bill is doing. Even now there is strong resistance to this program across the U.S. and many are asking for reform or repeal of the Bill.
Millions of Americans are receiving notices from their insurance companies that due to the rules of Obamacare that their health insurance policies are being cancelled by year end or very soon thereafter. These people were told by President Obama that they could keep their policies if they wanted. They were also told that they could keep their own doctors if they wanted.
Millions of Americans are seeing the costs of their health insurance plans now increasing significantly as a result of the implementation of Obamacare. These people were told by President Obama that their insurance costs would decrease by an average of $2500 per year.
There are many other adverse consequences which have been caused by the negative effects of the implementation of Obamacare. Our economy has been negatively affected, employment has been negatively affected, businesses have been negatively affected, doctors and hospitals have been negatively affected.
Partisan Democrats Turn Deaf Ear to Americans Losing Their Insurance Plans!
We saw in these hearings today extremely partisan Democrats speaking in favor of the potential unrealized benefits of Obamacare and providing political cover to Kathleen Sebelius by asking questions designed to bring out the best in what could be realized from Obamacare. Every Democrat that quizzed Kathleen Sebelius, with the exception of one Democratic Congressman from Georgia, John Barrow, was highly partisan and offered no sympathy or solutions for these Americans who are suffering from the cost increases and loss of insurance policies caused by Obamacare. When asked what she would say to these people said “I would recommend that they begin searching the market”. She would not acknowledge that the President had misled millions of people and continues to do so with the information now still posted on the www.whitehouse.gov website.
I am very personally disappointed with the partisan Democratic Congressmen and Congresswomen that appeared today and in effect said…we know what you need in healthcare…you do not know what you need…and we will dictate a government program called the Affordable Care Act that we know will hurt millions of you now with your quality of healthcare, the doctors and hospitals that you will be able to access, the costs that you will pay, and the time required for you to receive medical care for any purposes. We believe by doing this we will be able to help 30 million Americans that now do not have healtcare insurance.
The Democratic Party and President Obama purposes for the ACA were not to improve your and my healthcare but were to implement another method of redistribution of wealth from those who have to those who do not have…and in the process gain much more political control over every citizen. Their path here is clearly a single payer system otherwise known as socialized medicine all provided and run by the government.
As a concerned U.S citizen, regardless of party affiliation, I ask that you become involved in the political process and elect congressman, senators and a president that will stop this political effort to take over America by the socialist progressives.
The media are doing a good job covering the ObamaCare launch problems. But like their coverage of President Obama’s disastrous performance in his first presidential debate with Mitt Romney, there is a partisan motive at work here. The media want ObamaCare to succeed and believe that pounding away at the site problems will motivate the White House to get the site fixed.
While the tech problems are real and worth covering, so are five other ObamaCare catastrophes. But the media won’t cover those because to do so might further undermine the program:

President Barack Obama’s rhetoric toward conservative nonprofits inspired the Internal Revenue Service to target Tea Party groups, a broad lawsuit against the IRS alleges.
“The president of the United States gave the IRS a road map to investigate the tea party in the United States,” David French, senior counsel to the conservative American Center for Law and Justice told TheBlaze.
On ABC’s This Week, Speaker Boehner contrasted President Obama’s refusal to negotiate with House Republican efforts to keep the government running, provide fairness under ObamaCare and deal with the government’s spending problem.
Making clear that the President is risking a default by refusing to work with Republicans, Boehner said “I’m ready to talk. I’ve been ready to talk.”
Excerpts and videos are included below-
Boehner: The House Acted Four Times to Prevent a Government Shutdown and Provide Fairness to All Americans Under ObamaCare:
(CNN) — House Republicans won’t support raising the federal government’s borrowing limit without new spending cuts from the Obama administration, and the White House risks an unprecedented U.S. default by refusing, House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday.
Speaking six days into a partial government shutdown and 11 days before the Treasury Department expects to hit its statutory debt ceiling, Boehner told ABC’s “This Week” that he wants “a serious conversation” about spending, but no tax increases. Asked if the United States would default on debt payments unless President Barack Obama makes concessions, Boehner said, “That’s the path we’re on.”
“The votes are not in the House to pass a clean debt limit, and the president is risking default by not having a conversation with us,” said Boehner, R-Ohio.
So tonight it is 9/6/2013 which means that our government leadership has 24 days left in the month to do some very important, meaningful work.
Prioritizing The American Leadership Efforts!
President Obama has given to our government a vote on Syria that he should have taken care of himself…and he plans to take up several more days on this subject due to his irresponsibility. The President should learn that effective organizations function according to priorities that need action, which do not include protecting his reputation for lack of effort and incorrect decisions. Time to get off the golf course sir and go to work for a change….the entire country is asking for some meaningful action…
Let’s talk about the real work that should be done during this month.
Let’s stop Obamacare funding and fund the rest of the government
Let’s insist on the approval of the Keystone Pipeline! Obama can do this
Let’s do a balanced budget…income matches outgo!
Let’s stop the IRS from interfering with 401 c 4 approvals
Let’s find out the truth about Benghazi
Let’s stop the incessant Government Regulations
Let’s stop the effort to add taxes to the American People
Let’s get real action started on the implementation of the Fair Tax!
“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“It starts with leaders like Rep. Bridenstine”
One of the great frustrations of the past few months has been watching members of Congress (including a few co-sponsors) and others discussing recent IRS atrocities and calling for a “fair or flat tax” – as if the two were interchangeable.
LIstening to Hannity while writing this…his audience this Friday night are college students forum from mostly Eastern U.S. Colleges….7 democrats and 7 republicans…compliments to a very opinionated group for thinking about issues…the liberals never would answer Hannity’s direct questions whereas the conservatives answered straightforwardly. Social issues were dominant for liberals..especially gay marriage…abortion…government programs….I take away from this that these young people can think very well…they are being influenced by the liberal community that teaches them. And we must clean out the college professorial prejudiced liberal influencers of our society.
We have a lot of influencing to do my friends! You and I know this very well! Let’s do it!
The Federal Government is hiring “Navigators” and “Assisters” to assist you in signup for ObamaCare. If you value your personal data information it is very important that you read the article below. Many states are very concerned about the liabilities associated with the methods of collection and maintenance of this data and several states have returned Federal money to fund these programs. Please read the entire article beginning below. My information states that Navigators and Assisters will be visiting door to door in residential communities to collect the data beginning soon.
How Do You Protect Your Personal Data and Information With ObamaCare?
Many of us are concerned and anxious because we don’t know what the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, will mean for our personal health care, our families and our pocketbooks as enrollment commences October 1. The American people are likely unaware of the risks they face in disclosing their personal medical and financial information to strangers through the enrollment programs and have not been well informed of the potential for state entities to violate federal laws during the implementation of the ACA.
In an aggressive effort to recruit Americans into the ACA, the federal government has implemented “Navigator” and “Assister” programs. These programs lack not just training and oversight, but also background checks, fingerprinting or other screening that should be required prior to obtaining Americans’ social security numbers, addresses, and personal medical information. Recognizing these security concerns, thirteen Attorneys General wrote to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on August 14, 2013 warning that “…this is a privacy disaster waiting to happen.” On September 18, 2013, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issued a troubling report detailing how navigators and assisters not only threaten to harm consumer privacy and misuse consumer data but are also being carried out by individuals who have not been subject to background checks or other certifications. Concerned about the potential liabilities associated with these navigator and assister programs, entities in Ohio, Florida, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia have already voluntarily returned federal navigator grant money.
But another area of concern that has not yet received much attention is the risk of waste, fraud and abuse of the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars states are receiving to run their exchanges or marketplaces. For example, California has received $910 million; New York, $369 million; and Hawaii, $205 million. And this is just the beginning. Additional funds will likely be pumped into the system if the navigators and assisters are unable to meet their enrollment “quotas.” Entities within states should be on high alert regarding their risk of violating laws as implementation of the ACA occurs. For example, using any false writings or documents known to be materially fictitious, concealing a material fact, or making any fraudulent or fictitious statements to a government representative about the use of grant funds are violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Further, under OMB Circular A-87, state and local entities that receive federal funding are required to adequately document all costs associated with administering the grant funds. If a recipient falsely certifies that they are conforming to this regulation, or if they do not properly document federal grant funds that are being primarily utilized for state programs, they may be subject to liability under both the OMB Circular A-87 and the False Claims Act. An Inspector General found that the IRS largely failed to account for and report these costs associated with implementing ACA. If our federal agencies are failing at this oversight, it follows that states cannot be adequately equipped, aware, or prepared to conduct oversight over implementation of the ACA, setting these state exchanges up for failure.
Cause of Action (CoA) is concerned about the potential for waste, fraud and abuse of these funds given to state entities. This is why we have sent liability alert letters to more than 35 Governors thus far, and the District of Columbia, alerting them to the risks involved with the unintended misuse and waste of the ACA grant funds. Given the hundreds of millions of federal taxpayer dollars at stake, taxpayers should hold their elected representatives accountable for how their money is being spent.
The grim reality is that the Affordable Care Act is deceptively complex and non-transparent. Americans need to be cautious about enrolling in Obamacare (i.e., providing personal, medical and financial information to unchecked strangers), and mindful of the potential for misuse of taxpayer funds given the myriad, untested liability pitfalls and the vast sums of taxpayer money at stake. At a minimum, the American people deserve to have our elected representatives and federal government provide proper oversight of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Dan Epstein is the executive director of Cause of Action, a non-profit, nonpartisan government accountability organization.
The setup of government-mandated privacy protections, needed to safeguard the personal data enrollees of the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchanges must provide to purchase insurance and to prevent fraud, is months behind schedule, according to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General for Audit Services.
According to a TV news report today Florida now has (34) Navigators on staff in Florida.
The State of Florida was one of several that refused to accept funds from the ACA/Obamacare due to the risks involved.Concerned about the potential liabilities associated with these navigator and assister programs, entities in Ohio, Florida, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia have already voluntarily returned federal navigator grant money.
WH Advisor Obamacare Architect Calls American Voters Stupid To Many Audiences!
I don’t know about you but I am highly offended to learn this week of at least four Obamacare video Presentations by MIT Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber to different audiences… in which he made clear statements that “American Taxpayers are stupid and are not capable of comprehending the complexity of the Bill”.
Mr. Gruber was at the heart of developing the first Massachusetts Health Care Bill which Mr. Obama has touted that he modeled the federal Obamacare Bill. Early reports are that Mr. Gruber has been paid more than $2 million (now changed to $5.9 million) by the federal government and state governments for his consulting services on health care matters. Reports are that he received at least $400,000 for his consulting services on Obamacare. He is laughingly being referred to as the $6 Million Dollar Man now!
These videos and more below are for your own personal viewing to confirm how the Obama Administration deceived America in developing and presenting Obamacare to the American People!
Jonathan Gruber Once Again Says Subsidies Are Tied to State-Based Exchanges
If you are not hearing about or seeing these major stories on your favorite main stream Media Channels including ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and CSNBC there is a MAJOR reason. The White House and the Main Stream Media that support his administration
do not want you to know the truth about Obamacare and how many lies it took to sell it. The United States Federal Government and participating mainstream media companies by all indications are complicit in cooperating to defraud the American Public of our taxpayer dollars. Although not an attorney, if the admissions by a key member of the Obamacare Architect Team are true, every American should have a right of recourse to the recovery of stolen dollars as a result of this major fraudulent scheme.
This in my opinion is a big deal and hoax. A hoax second only to electing a non-qualified President without proper vetting to the White House in 2008.
When asked about Jonathan Gruber in his press conference last evening before returning to the USA from a 10-day visit to the Orient, Mr. Obama said that Mr. Gruber was not a member of the Obamacare design team, just an advisor. Videos showing John Gruber below seem to contradict this statement by the President. There obviously will be more investigation into this claim as reports are that Mr. Gruber visited the White House (19) times during the design period of Obamacare. Reports from those at the WH at the time say that Mr. Gruber was the central design figure of Obamacare.
And Nancy Pelosi is running from her former recommendations and promoting of Gruber on video and on her website….now denying that she does not know who he is and he was not a part of the design team. The videos and website images paint her as an irrational Democratic Congressional Leader who said…”we have to pass Obamacare now so that you can then understand what is in it”. Next to the hoax of electing our unqualified President I would place the hoax of presenting and using taxpayer’s dollars to pass legislation that is destroying our country.
Looking back at the 2012 Presidential Election…The Republicans lost that election because not enough people came out to vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. If you were one of the 3 million Americans who stayed home for whatever the reasons we encourage you to join us now in mounting a major campaign to win the House, the Senate and the White House. We have enough good candidates in this country that we can elect committed candidates to represent the people as they should be. The in-office professional politicians who do not represent the people are identifying themselves very clearly now.
With the closing of War Memorials around the world and White House visitations it appears that the country has been taken over by the politicians. Is this what you and the American people really want?
Clint Eastwood: We Own This Country – Politicians Are Employees Of Ours!
Clint Eastwood made a powerful and accurate speech at the Tampa 2012 GOP Convention. He was so correct then and is now in what he had to say…the entire 11+ minutes is offered below for those who want to enjoy it again.
If these three million had voted, Romney’s popular vote total would have beaten Obama’s by 180,000. I don’t know what it would mean Electoral College yet, that hasn’t been analyzed, but this was not an election lost because of demography. It wasn’t an election lost because we lost the women vote or Hispanic vote. We didn’t turn our vote out. It’s just that simple.

A week ago, hypocrite in chief Barack Obama led the Democrats in the use of incendiary language, accusing the Republicans in Congress of “holding the whole country hostage” by having the gall to vote against his health care program, which is the real hostage taker.
Obamacare, even prior to installation, has begun its stranglehold over the American people and the entirety of the American economy which will have far reaching affects beyond our borders.
More and more companies, great and small are making executive decisions affecting the lives of their employees by cutting back hours, turning these United States into a part time working nation with more and more people becoming increasingly dependent upon government largesse.
Leadership matters….and more importantly…lack of leadership matters evens more!
Incompetency Reigns In This Administration
Responsible American Citizens are sick at heart with so many crises and cover-ups by President Obama! And now we are presented with the secreted information about how the medical health of our Veterans have been ignored while the President was attending to all the campaign speeches, campaign trips, vacations, golf outings, and attention to sports events including the NCAA basketball brackets. And it has taken three weeks to take a public stance on the incredible injustices that his Administration has imposed upon the brave and honorable veterans of this country.
This president does not focus on the priorities important to the people of this country. His focus is and has been primarily on the political issues of his party and how he can continue the corrupt and devious Liberal agenda. He has been labeled as the juvenile president…and he has earned this description. According to him and his consistent untruthful White House media spokesman they only learn about any important event from the television and news media. In other words, he occupies the office of President of this country however is not present to meet and even know about the responsibilities of the Office. Every event brings more untruths and irresponsible statements from this President. He accepts the compensation and benefits of the most powerful office in the world while claiming to know nothing and do nothing about the key issues that Americans are extremely disturbed about.
The real truths are that he is disinterested, disengaged, biased, immature, lazy, divisive, racially biased, uncaring, narcissistic, arrogant, uninformed, partisan, socialistic, religiously biased, and many other adjectives that I could use that would truthfully apply.
These words are used to motivate the rethinking and re-evaluation about his actions and the total value of the country that he is trying to change. Just because he believes that the country should be radically transformed does not mean that the majority of Americans agree with him. In fact the vast majority disagree with him. We are witnessing how power corrupts.
This president wants more reports before he can take any action to correct the Veterans Administration issues. The president and his staff were briefed on all of these VA situations before they took office. Five years of reports and inaction are more than sufficient to cause a decision by a rational, effective executive to correct the problems of the most important medical services of this country, that of the Veterans Administration. The Congress and the Senate should act immediately to cause the President to act on behalf of assuring that American Veterans are provided with effective, responsible health care.
My personal story about the VA is simple and only spans (9) months…however tells the story of Obamacare and the Veterans Administration in a short capsule of time. I assure you that this is the beginning of what you will get from Obamacare in the future. Here it is…
In October of 2013 I was advised that my Blue Cross Blue Shield secondary insurance would no longer be available to me…and this was caused by the introduction of Obamacare. In October of 2013 I completed the necessary forms to apply for VA Medical Coverage to which I am entitled because I could no longer afford the excellent policies that I once had. I personally delivered those VA Application forms to the VA Office in 10/2013. I heard nothing for three months and in January 2014 I again visited the local VA Office and was told that my VA Application Forms had been lost.
It was necessary to complete the forms again and reapply. In March 2014 I was called in by the VA Administration and they have handled my scheduling and medical care very effectively to date. The initial scheduling was my issue and this seems to be the initial focus around the country although I am sure it will become more serious. It appears that even in my case there was an effort to show the proper results for scheduling and get their VA bonuses. This is an incredibly corrupt and criminal activity and the President and the VA Department Head are complicit by not taking corrective action. This is what I mean by the Congress and Senate taking action.
The other result of Mr. Obama’s Obamacare is that by taking away $500 million from Medicare, I have received more than $800 in medical bills that would have been paid for by the Medicare Part A Insurance that I have had for years. And I should mention that I am a malignant cancer survivor and that Obamacare has caused me to lose all (8) of my specialist doctors that saved my life along with the hospital services which were so effective. I am now at the mercy of the Veterans Administration Medical Services and I pray for their assistance.
For these valid reasons I sincerely believe that Mr. Obama as President and the Obamacare Health Care Plan have severely adversely affected this country. It is in the best interests of this country that Mr. Obama and his Staff resign at the earliest opportunity and allow the rights assured by the Constitution to proceed.
Identity Theft has been the largest consumer crime reported to the Federal Trade Commission for the last twelve years. Last year more than 12 million people in the U.S. were victims of identity theft. I would like to ask you an important question and refer you to a post that addresses the question…
How Safe Is Your Personal Data When Applying For Obamacare?
To severely complicate the situation of millions of Americans receiving cancellation letters of their insurance policies from the insurance companies, they are forced to go to the Healthcare.gov website to look at options as to how to replace their insurance policies. By law, individuals are being forced to access this government website and enter their personal information. Unfortunately, many reports are that when anyone accesses the Healthcare.com website, it places their personal identity at major risk. Many legislators are questioning as to whether the government is acting responsibly by allowing this website to be running and active and to employ navigators who have not been background cleared to handle your personal data. Here are some of the news items that are emerging that inform us of the critical issue of thousands or even millions of people’s personal data being placed at extreme risk.
By Joe Johns, CNN updated 5:33 PM EDT, Wed October 30, 2013
Washington (CNN) — An internal government memo written just days before the start of open enrollment for Obamacare warned of a “high” security risk because of a lack of testing of the HealthCare.gov website.
Related: Administration warned about site a month before launch
“Due to system readiness issues, the SCA (security control assessment) was only partly completed,” said the internal memo from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “This constitutes a risk that must be accepted and mitigated to support the Marketplace Day 1 operations.”
WASHINGTON – Felons might be collecting your personal information when you sign up for ObamaCare.
That stunning admission came from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a Senate hearing Wednesday, when she acknowledged that the “navigators” who help people enroll in ObamaCare don’t have to pass a criminal background check.
“A convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them?” asked Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today that Obamacare navigators don’t need to undergo criminal background checks:
“So I want to ask you about the navigators,” said Senator John Cornyn at a hearing today on Capitol Hill. “The president is in Dallas, Texas today, touting the navigator program, which, as you know, are people who are hired to help people navigate the Affordable Care Act. But I would just like to ask you this question, if you would answer it: Isn’t it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal — sensitive personal — information from the individuals they help to sign-up for the Affordable Care Act?”
Why We Need Proven Business Leadership To Save This Country – not politicians!
More provocative E-mails hit my inboX this week …including one that explains why about 50% of American Citizens have a horrendous tax burden while the remaining 50% have their welfare paid for by those who work and earn income. And not only do these working 50% have our own American citizens to take care of but we take care of millions of illegal immigrants and also give millions of dollars away to foreign countries. And we have military bases in so many countries. But let’s just talk about the illegal immigrants now… By the way…how many of our presidential candidates have identified illegal immigrants as a major problem in this country? Do you know?
Costs of Illegal Immigration To Taxpayers
When government legislators talk about cutting costs for anything they talk about cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, but never a thing about cutting support to illegals…… WHY?…or foodstamps or free phones…or payments to unwed mothers…
This is WHY the USA almost $19 Trillion in debt!
Seniors are hammered with the government propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the War On Terror that is bankrupting us. This is totally untrue as we have a President who has grown the size of government tremendously…and he has no desire to cut spending on unnecessary programs. All of the Democrats in their Presidential Debate last week talked about adding many new spending programs as if there is no end to taxpayers money. None of the candidates talked about how to pay for these programs.
I hope that you will read the following 14 ways we are spending trmendous money on just illegal immigrants and that you forward them over and over again until they are read so many times that the readers gets sick of reading them.
$11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal immigrants each year by state governments.
2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food Assistance programs to illegal immigrants such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal immigrants.
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal immigrants.
4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on Primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!
5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for Education for the American-born Children of illegal immigrants, known as Anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal immigrants.
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison Inmates are illegal immigrants.
8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on Illegal immigrants for Welfare & social Services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.
13. In 2006, illegal immigrants sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their Countries of origin.
14. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed By Illegal Immigrants In The United
The total cost of all this is a whopping
$ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR AND IF YOU’RE LIKE ME, YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY; IT IS $338,300,000,000.00 WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY AND PAY OFF THE PERSONAL DEBT AND MORE FOR EVERY CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY.
JUST LIKE WE COULD HAVE GIVEN EVERY CITIZEN IN THE U.S. $2 MILLION EACH INSTEAD OF PAYING THIS AMOUNT TO CREATE THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE WHICH COST MORE THAN $700 MILLION…THERE ARE ONLY 317 MILLION MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THE U.S. ….DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR POLITICAL LEADERS ARE DOING TO US? DO YOU WANT TO STOP THIS? And do you whose friends received this fatcat, wasteful contract? I’ll give you one guess…
Are we THAT Stupid?
YES, FOR ALLOWING THE PRESIDENT AND THOSE IN THE U.S. CONGRESS AND U.S. SENATE TO GET AWAY WITH DOING THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!!!
And then I also received another email singing the praises of how great a woman Hillary Clinton is…so many Americans are in love with her and would vote for her in a minute for President if they get a chance. Yes, we are THAT Stupid! Especially that segment of the American population that thinks they are entitled to freebies and that those who can work should take care of them through government handouts…and the corrupt and biased media consisting of CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC> Here is that email describing how corrupt Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton really are…in hopes that some uninformed Democratic Voters decide to wake up and realize that the Democrats are just creating financial and social havoc in their lives. ..
What a great woman Hillary is!
If you’re under 50 you really need to read this . If you ‘ re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was:
She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.
What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?
Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”
Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!
Please pass this on. Our way of life may depend on it.
The President and Vice President are busily focused on solving Syrian issues and considering Putin’s OpEd today to the New York Times. Surely these are important issues to be dealt with however… I ask the President, our U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress if those issues are more important than those here at home including Benghazi, The IRS scandal, The ObamaCare catastrophe, The Keystone Pipeline, fracking and our energy Issues, the debt ceiling, economic recovery and more?
The White House is also busily trying to appease the Unions from complaining and trying to get a waiver out of ObamaCare, while spending valuable time and resources listening to Putin’s diatribes about America’s deficiencies, with very little else of importance coming from the massive investment of White House czars, staff, chefs and (26) staff members for the President’s wife. It is not comprehensible to me as to why we must close the White House to public visitations at a cost of $17,000 per week while maintaining such an elite White House organization. Probably our most frugal president, Harry Truman and his wife Bess would turn over in their graves if they saw the money that this administration wastes. Mr. Truman and Bess came from their $12,000 home in Independence, Missouri to live in Washington. As I recall Harry Truman refused to take his salary of $25,000 a year to serve as President.
It appears to me that the important decisions and work for this country seem to get buried under political priorities…with too many signs that the this country’s White House leadership is totally out of control.
Many thanks go out to the thousands of motorcycle riders that elected to ride to Washington, DC yesterday…to show real respect for victims of 9/11…even in the face of seemingly political efforts to stop their ride. We really have a lot of work to do in righting this country. I would like to see our leadership focus on the real issues internal to this country.
By Stephen Dinan The Washington Times Thursday, September 12, 2013
Newly released emails show that Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS scandal over special scrutiny of conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status, specifically targeted tea party applications and directed they be held up in 2011 in order to come up with an agency policy.
“Tea Party Matter very dangerous,” Ms. Lerner said in the 2011 email, saying that those applications could end up being the “vehicle to go to court” to get more clarity on a 2010 Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance rules.
The email, released by a House committee investigating the IRS, seems to counter Democrats’ arguments that tea party groups weren’t specifically targeted.
Capitol Hill Republicans are trying to stop the Obama administration from offering labor unions a sweetheart deal on ObamaCare, as the White House tries to quell a simmering rebellion from Big Labor over the health care law.
President Obama and White House officials reportedly have called union leaders to try and persuade them to tone down their complaints, pledging an accommodation. The AFL-CIO, though, on Wednesday approved a resolution anyway calling the law “highly disruptive” to union plans.
Are you pleased with this group of Democratic Senators and Congressmen who have slammed Obamacare down our throats to destroy our health care system and gain contol of 1/6th of the economy? Have you seen the additional new taxes as a result?
If you like that then the Democratic Senate now wants to repeal our Bill of Rights and take away your rights to free speech as given to us by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Seriously! This is incredibly destructive to our American way of life Have you heard about this from our news media?
Ted Cruz – (49) Democratic Senators Voting To Abandon First Amendment
I am so pleased that we have legislators like Senator Ted Cruz who gave an OUTSTANDING SPEECH on the Senate Floor yesterday calling out (49) Democratic Senators for devoting this entire week to an effort to abandon the First Amendment. Not only did he make that accomplishment but several more… especially nailing Senator Harry Reid for his unprecedented personal attack on American Citizens, specifically the Koch Brothers. Rather than tell the truth about the largest donors to politics being the Democrats giving to the Democratic Party, he chooses to follow President Obama’s examples and spout lies to the American People…lies that do not get reported accurately by the media.
I sincerely ask you to listen to this entire speech on the video below as Ted Cruz describes how the Democrats don’t have any decent accomplishments to run on in this election so instead they are choosing to try to stop the American People from having free speech rights to tell the truth about their misdeeds and mismanagement of our government.
Senator Marco Rubio
Also below is Senator Marco Rubio’s video interview this morning on CNBC regarding President Obama’s very important speech to the nation last night. I find Senator Rubio’s analysis and words to be clear and understandable and what I would want to hear from my President. I am not comfortable with many statements in Mr.Obama’s speech. Can he really identify the issues and provide leadership to protect America? Will he do whatever it will take to defeat Islamic Terrorists…or will he try to manage the number of beheadings and killings? How many people will lose their lives because he decides to take a limited way of destroying these threats?…that means telling everyone what we are not going to do???
I call upon John Boehner, Congressional Majority Leader, and Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader to stand up courageously and lead the Congress and the Senate …so that our country is protected from these highly dangerous and perilous situations. We need leaders gentlemen…we are really tired of “do nothing rhetoric”.
Also, many have asked me recently for my leading Presidential Candidates for 2016. Today I would endorse strongly a ticket of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. I believe that they each absolutely have the necessary leadership qualities to get this country back on the right track. I reserve my right to watch all events carefully and see how all candidates approach our country’s critical leadership positions.
Keen minds around the country are busily crunching away at what can happen this week in Washington. It amuses me that many of those in the News Media and most who are connected to Washington are convinced that Congress is committing suicide by voting what they believe to be the right thing to do for the American People. The amusing part to me is the further that you are disconnected from Washington the more people seem to like the idea.
John Boehner as Speaker of the House said it very clearly upon completion of the vote…”The American People do not want to shut down the Government and The American People do not want ObamaCare.” How clear can you be! If the Democrats choose to shut down the Government that is their idiotic choice. But rest assured they are in backrooms now concocting how they can shut down the Government and get the Republicans to take the blame…which is not the intent of the Congress in any way. The intent is to defund ObamaCare because it will do such damage to you and I and this country.
I sincerely believe that this country will have another very deep recession even worse than what we have been through in the last five years…unless we take action to stop the current ObamaCare legislation from being implemented…or as many believe…as it stops itself by self-destructive implosion. I submit that we should be pro-active, not passive, and take as much legislative action as we can to defund ObamaCare…do not shut down the Federal Government…and let our Washington representatives earn their money to fix these problems. Simultaneously the American population should be reading the “Liberty Amendments” below and urging their State Governments to take appropriate action…
Let Your Congressmen and Senators Hear From You This Week!
Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”)
Palin Rips ‘Gutless’ GOP for Attacking Cruz Over ObamaCare
September 22, 2103
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed Republican leaders who refuse to get behind defunding ObamaCare. Palin supports Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others who are trying to rally Republicans in Congress to strip away funding for the president’s health care law.
