“If you’re a conservative and stop to rescue victims in a car accident like Mitt Romney’s son did, you’re mocked and ridiculed by those on the left. If you’re a liberal and kill someone with your car, then run away, you’re elected senator of Massachusetts like Ted Kennedy!”
What exactly is an “inadequate” health insurance policy? It turns out that the answer to a seemingly innocuous question is key to our health care future, to what happens when Obamacare goes down.
“Biden, Kerry and Obama had it right in 2006. It would be foolish to invoke the nuclear option in the Senate. I guess Obama’s greed for power has overtaken his intelligence. That’s okay, everyone now should know his true goal is to be king, not president. History will remove the upper case and remember him as ‘president.’”
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus was one of the chief authors of Obamacare. He helped write it, he voted for it, and he thought it would be great for America. That is, until he started listening to his constituents three years later. At an April 2013 Senate Budget Committee hearing, Baucus said of Obamacare that he saw “a huge train wreck coming.”
“Rod is up to his old tricks, only telling half the story. But he admitted he didn’t know anything about the fair tax so he looked it up. No doubt on one of his extreme left leaning websites. (Hey, like the commercial says ‘it’s on the internet so it has to be true’). One of the many ‘small’ details he fails to mention is you would not pay payroll, or federal income taxes anymore. For the first time you would keep what you earn. There are many other benefits and everyone would pay their fair share. ... But wait ... where have I heard that before?”
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
While Leon does have a point with Obamacare’s navigators, I would think there’s a bigger problem. A website as buggy and incompetent as the Obamacare’s site is has to be wide open to hackers and it has all but advertised that fact. Well crafted, competent websites have security issues — this mess has no even probability of security or safety.
Tired of getting email solicitations from Nigerian princes and Romanian bank presidents promising you millions of dollars if you will only give them your birthday, your Social Security number and nank account information? Not to worry. Those pesky emails will soon become a thing of the past. Why you may ask? Well because you will soon be giving all that “private” information and “more” to Obamacare’s so-called “navigators”.
What else can you do but chuckle at some of the “letter writers” and their devotion to ridiculous ideas they believe will “save America’ from succumbing to the disease of “socialism?”
Sheesh, what did they expect?
The federal government released data Wednesday showing only about 750 Arizona residents have enrolled in the online health insurance marketplace that is a key part of President Barack Obama’s health care law.
Leave the panic of the horrible Obamacare fiasco to the Dems trying to save their seats and concentrate and preparing and presenting a basic plan for insurance to the public.
The group of Congressmen who are grilling Secretary Sebelius are pushing an agenda that is a little hard to follow. The issue is that some citizens are going to lose their existing health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act. In a left-handed way this is correct. The ACA offers policies which have more coverage at lower cost and, accordingly, many insurance companies are canceling policies which have become overpriced and are non-competitive ever since ACA was rolled out. The decisions to cancel certain overpriced policies were made by the insurance companies because it made economic sense. There is little future in offering policies which are not competitive because they have less coverage at higher cost.
I’ve been watching the fight over the Affordable Care Act and how some are stopping at nothing to shut it down before giving it a chance to work.
Dear American citizens:
“When Obama gets up behind his teleprompter and it tells him too say, ‘you can keep your gun if we pass gun control,’ Will you believe him?”
I read the recent letter to the editor entitled “Fighting ACA a bad proposition for Republicans” (Tribune, Oct. 25, evtnow.com/607). While I do not agree with the partisan nature of that letter, it highlighted that there are some good things in the ACA that should not be thrown away. Some aspects in particular will positively affect cancer survivors. For example, the protection of patients with pre-existing conditions, as well as the elimination of annual and lifetime limits will provide patients with access to the care they need as well as reduce the number of medical bankruptcies. Too often, patients are faced with daunting financial challenges on top of those related to their treatment and care. However, one issue that is not addressed in ACA is the unequal treatment of oral versus infusion cancer drugs by insurers. There is an urgent need for additional legislation to resolve this problem.
“Do we have an absentee President who’s abdicated his responsibilities or one who does not care?”
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
Either the American People can believe that Barack Hussein Obama is stupid (Occidental College, Columbia University, Harvard University, past President of the Harvard Law Review, former Visiting Law and Government Fellow University of Chicago, author of four books, former Illinois State Senator, former U.S. Senator and twice elected to be the President of the United States of America) or that he is a liar.
“Gilbert Public Schools portion of my property tax bill is 72 percent of the total bill. NO OVERRIDE. They get enough of my money already.”
“I don’t get the ‘tea party.’ If this is such a bad country, why don’t they all move to Texas, secede from the union and be their own founding fathers of their new country? No taxes, no environmental controls, no costly safety mandates, no health insurance, no food inspection, etc. Glenn Beck is there to keep us all up to date on your progress. If all goes well, you have the Pastor Joel Osteen down in Houston to pen another book to confirm you are in God’s favor. If that happens, you win.”
Surprise, surprise: Obama’s ‘ObamaCare’ internet registration debacle was developed by a Canadian corporation, CGI Group. Our own countrymen weren’t even awarded the contract to develop the system. I know, “lowest bidder”. From what NBC reported, CGI developed the Canadian system and from what I’ve learned from reports about the Great White North’s system, I can appreciate why we’re in a fix. For a system this large and what it’s expected to do, it takes months, even years of working with the programmers and performing a multitude of benchmark tests. I’m not so sure the Obama administration even knows what benchmarking is. It helps develop a “fail-safe” system, drawing out the shortcomings. God only knows, if one is going to create a system of this magnitude it requires more effort than what a few politically appointed hacks can contribute. Yup, “We’ll get it up and running and then figure out the problems later.” What a way to run a business.
“How ironic that the same Democrats that chastised the Republicans for demanding changes to Obamacare are now demanding changes to Obamacare!”
Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.
