$2.1 Billion a month – Where Does the Obamacare Bribe Money Come From?

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

The same people who refuse to repair that crumbling bridge your kid’s school bus crosses everyday because they say they just don’t have enough revenue coming in yet, wants to run your health care. Many of us pointed out the flawed funding formulas and unsustainability of unicorn farts and happy thoughts fueling the drive before and after the law was rushed through Congress without anyone even reading the bill, but we were scoffed at and told we were just mean bad people.

Well, it looks like the mean bad people were the ones lying to implement the hoax that is now Obamacare.

The large subsidies for health insurance that helped fuel the successful drive to sign up some 8 million Americans for coverage under the Affordable Care Act may push the cost of the law considerably above current projections, a new federal report indicates.

Nearly 9 in 10 Americans who bought health coverage on the federal government’s healthcare marketplaces received government assistance to offset their premiums.

90% of the signups had to be bribed into doing so. Where does that bribe money come from people?

Premiums that normally would have cost $346 a month on average instead cost consumers just $82, with the federal government picking up the balance of the bill.

8 million Obamacare enrollees X $264 subsidized monthly premium (aka bribe) = $2,112,000,000  A MONTH

Oh the math gets far worse….

That total does not count the additional cost of providing coverage to millions of additional consumers who bought coverage in states that ran their own marketplaces, including California, Connecticut, Maryland and New York. About a third of the 8 million people who signed up for coverage this year used a state-run marketplace.

The fact is no one really knows.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated in April that the annual cost of subsidies will rise to $23 billion next year and $95 billion in 2024, although the budget office continued to project that all the law’s costs will be offset by additional revenue it raises and by cuts in other federal healthcare spending.

But hey, don’t worry, we’ll make up for it in other areas….

Which gets me back to that crumbling bridge they say they don’t have the money to fix.

Folks, someday, you will be that bridge that they can’t afford to fix if you allow Government to take over your health care system.

BenghaziGate – Blame America First, Lie Second

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Here’s a great video from Jeff Davis about the timeline of the Benghazi attacks and subsequent coverup.

Its shameful that Obama is still in office and that anyone who worked for him during and after Benghazi is even considering running for office in the future.

 

Radical Leftwing Congressman Who Hangs Out With Socialist….

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Exactly who does the DFL hang out with while throwing partisan bombs?

“What I am proposing is a political revolution in this country.” – US Sen. Bernie Sanders

The latest DFL fundraising email is just another example of pot meet kettle.

Our party is doing amazing work in Minnesota right now (of course I don’t want to diminish that!) but complacency is a dangerous side effect of success. We can’t let it become our downfall.

Right now, we are being attacked by the GOP on all sides.

Republicans will stop at nothing to take back the state legislature, and our DFL leaders are big targets for them. Mitch McConnell wants to buy Al Franken’s seat to help Republicans take control of the Senate. And Michele Bachmann is pushing for fellow Tea Partier Tom Emmer to replace her in the House as Bachmann 2.0.

We can’t let Republicans take control and reverse all the progress we’ve made. If we’re going to stop them, we need your help to meet our $15,000 goal by April 30. Will you give today?

Minnesota Republicans think they can win back the governor’s mansion and the state legislature this year, and we all know what will happen if they succeed: More government shutdowns and backward policies. They’ll do everything they can to repeal all the progress we’ve made on workers’ rights, women’s rights, voters’ rights and marriage equality. We can’t let that happen!

Governor Dayton and the rest of the DFL leadership need our help and they need it now. With help from DFLers like you, we stood up to the GOP in 2012 and won. Can I count on you again in 2014?

Thank you for helping me and the DFL show the Republicans that we won’t back down!

Rep. Keith Ellison

On Sunday Ellison held a Fundraiser with Sen. Bernie Sanders an open socialist who is calling for a political revolution in the United States.

It is time for the DFL to stop getting a free pass on just how radical and left wing they are. Their Congressional Delegation is among the most liberal. Their Legislative leaders are on the far left fringe of Minnesota Democrats, yet they are allowed to pretend to be main stream.

They seek to divide this country and silence any opposing thought, especially those that believe in liberty, freedom, private property, and personal responsibility. Oddly, the very things our Founders fought for over 200 years ago.

Progressive when it comes to politics has nothing to do with forward looking policies, they are aiming to take us backwards, to a society of calculated outcomes and socialism. It disgusts me that they are allowed to attack freedom loving people like Bachmann and Emmer while they are trying to shred the Constitution and redistribute the wealth of our nation and spread the misery around.

Democrats Want You Addicted To Government

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

The DFL sent out a fundraising email this morning and in the very first sentence tells you all you need to know about the agenda of that left wing party.

50 million Americans currently rely on Medicare and that number is rising every year [...]

Democrats think more people dependent on Government is a good thing. That’s the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Republicans want people to be able to take care of themselves, Democrats want people to have no other choice but to rely on Government. Period!

Democrats Easily Tap Into “Seven Figure Checkbooks”

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Another email from the left wing Agenda Project.

 

Hi Andy,

Nancy Pelosi and a few big thinking donors could save the Senate, pick up seats in the House, generate hundreds of millions of dollars of earned media for a progressive economic agenda, and fundamentally re-shape the national political narrative. But only if they move fast enough to seize the best investment opportunity in the political marketplace before it’s too late.

To learn how, read more HERE.

Jump to the story in Huffington Post describing just how easy it is for Democrats to call in the uber rich donors.

Pelosi — and maybe only Pelosi — can close the funding for this critical investment. In addition to being the highest-ranking female political leader in U.S. history; Pelosi is also one of the best fund raisers in the country. Better yet, her San Francisco district puts her smack in the middle of a Silicon Valley culture that understands thinking big and moving fast. The kind of money needed for the ballot initiative can’t be raised in $50-100K checks. There isn’t enough time. Instead a few savvy political investors — ones who are smart enough to recognize the unique leverage of this specific initiative and gutsy enough to be decisive — need to pull out their seven figure checkbooks.

The media narrative that the Republicans are the party of the rich is hogwash. Its time to remind Minnesota voters that a vote for any DFLer running for Congress is a vote for the radical Nancy Pelosi and her friends who like to buy elections and power with their “seven figure checkbooks”.

Top Democrat Likens GOP Worthy Of Johnstown Charge

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

When they run into something protecting Americans from their anti-American agenda – in this case the Constitution – they slander, libel, and lie about those who are protecting Americans’ rights. Obama’s new senior advisor proves Rules for Radicals is required reading for administration officials. 

In a profile published late Tuesday by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana.

“They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,” said Podesta of what Obama’s White House team faces. Jonestown was the informal name of the settlement founded by Jones and his American followers.

Call Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar and urge him to demand Podesta’s immediate firing.

If Democrats really want to know why the country seems so divided, they need look no further than a mirror. This is just another example of top Democrats slandering and smearing people for simply having an opposing point of view.

Franken & Klobuchar Choose Illegal Immigrants Over Veterans

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

The latest “Budget Deal” being debated is yet another example of kicking the can down the road. Fearful of coming to terms with the fact that eventually we will run out of other people’s money to promise to people so they will vote for them, members of Congress have compiled an accounting miracle to project their careers. Gimmicks and shifts with no real substantive reforms to deal once and for all with the bloating and rioting entitlement society Congress and bureaucrats have created for their own survival.

As is American politics is today, if you stand up and fight the honest and noble fight, as Ted Cruz did in trying to delay the predictably failed Obamacare rolled out, everyone and their mother will demonize you and call you a terrorist. Republicans have learned their lesson, as is, don’t try to do what’s right because we will blame you for our failures. The media sprints to the presses and TV camera with their latest White House talking points and the President finds the closest person who is about to faint to hold a rally in front of, and whammo! You’re the bad guy for being right.

So Republicans in Congress are “working” with Democrats in finding a “fix” for the “budget stalemate”. The argument is not over whether or not we are spending more and more money on wasteful and duplicative efforts. Its about protecting all the little kickbacks and special programs designed to draw blocks of voters based on demographic and culture to vote for Democrats. Its also to force Republicans to choose more Marxo-Progressive tax increases or cutting benefits to groups such as veterans.

The Senate Republicans were not going to take this one lying down so they tried to get a vote on an amendment to the budget deal that would have protected veterans pensions. In order to find some “spending cuts” to avoid the “sequester reductions, budget negotiators decided veterans benefits were at the top of the list for reductions. Meanwhile illegal immigrants are cashing in $4.2 billion of welfare benefits. To Democrats that’s an important voting constituency.

Senate Republicans tried to prevent such reckless and inhumane treatment of our nation’s heroes. ToDemocrats like Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, the men and women who risked their lives for this country are expendable so that taxpayers can provide welfare benefits for people who have no respect for our laws and are taking entitlements away from Americans. Why? Because they know those people will vote the right way. Sure they won’t say that, they will give you some tear jerking story of some poor innocent family of illegal immigrants who can’t put enough food on the table who’s kids can’t even get in state tuition to college, or who have to work 2 jobs under the table……

To Democrats, putting food on the table of illegal immigrants is more important than keeping a promise to our veterans.  

Senate Democrats blocked a vote (aka filibustered?) the Republican amendment to require a social security number to receive welfare. This would have protected veterans benefits, but Franken and Klobuchar sided with Harry Reid in protecting non-citizens.

They are playing party politics and putting the DNC ahead of veterans on their priority scale. Shameful and disgusting.

When your stomach turns as you watch the status quo sausage being made in Washington, be careful to avoid instinctively casting a pox on both parties. While far from perfect, Republicans are in no way as deceitful and disingenuous as Democrats. Democrats will shut down the government to protect government and their own party from the cold hard fact that we are heading straight for a fiscal cliff. They will masterfully shift all blame on Republicans, and its all so they can maintain their death grip on the power and corruption that is destroying this once great nation.

The population bomb heading for Social Security and other entitlements will bankrupt this country. The Marxist drive to socialize and nationalize huge sectors of our economy is suicide because the only way to avoid serious reforms to the entitlements is an American economy breaking the sound barrier in growth and job creation. Instead Democrats are mandate by mandate crippling our economy. They are strangling growth industries with red tape, and taxing investors out of the markets. They are killing the only thing that could possibly save their socialist dream.

Everytime a person votes Democrat so they can receive more subsidies, a Democrat gets its wings. Never mind the forecasts and projections of continual spending increases and growing of entitlement programs is factually unsustainable, Democrats have their foot on the floor of the American bus as it is racing straight for a cliff of insolvency.

Klobuchar Approves Of Benghazi Coverup

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton washed her hands of any responsibility in the murders of 4 Americans and cover up by the Obama administration.

Don’t forget, that with in moments of the terrorist attack, the Obama administration put more into the political response then they did into a security response.

So what does Minnesota’s Senior Senator who was first elected to “ask tough questions” have to say?

Run Hillary, run!

Accountability is a 4 letter word to Democrats. Our nation is in chaos, and Democrats are looking to the next election, not solving the problems facing our nation.

MNSure’s Unreasonable Search and Seizure – I Plead The 4th

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

There is a new trend in Government, data is collected and shared with law enforcement and the IRS. Don’t worry though, its “just in case” you break the law. Of course this runs amuck of the Constitution, but that document is completely ignored now by politicians and agents of Government.

4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

At the Federal level, the SAFE Act does a similar thing, including sending your finger prints and an FBI background check to the Department of Justice where it will be stored – just in case.

I saw a story on Drudge this morning about Maryland’s “marketplace” and how personal data is “protected” – more properly put – used to implicate you in a crime.

Maryland’s Health Connection, the state’s Obamacare marketplace, has been plagued by delays in the first days of open enrollment.  If users are able to endure long page-loading delays, they are presented with the website’s privacy policy, a ubiquitous fine-print feature on websites that often go unread. Nevertheless, users are asked to check off a box that they agree to the terms.

The policy contains many standard statements about information automatically collected regarding Internet browsers and IP addresses, temporary “cookies” used by the site, and website accessibility.  However, at least two conditions may give some users pause before proceeding.

The first is regarding personal information submitted with an application for those users who follow through on the sign up process all the way to the end.  The policy states that all information to help in applying for coverage and even for making a payment will be kept strictly confidential and only be used to carry out the function of the marketplace.  There is, however, an exception: “[W]e may share information provided in your application with the appropriate authorities for law enforcement and audit activities.”

Obamacare is a Federal law requiring ‘marketplaces’ so chances are every state will be the same….. MNSure is Mark Dayton’s version of Obamacare, I wonder what it does with data. Via MNSure’s terms and conditions page (aka what you must agree with to comply with this federal mandate. (AKA involuntary search and seizure)

With whom may we share information?

We will only share information about you as needed and as allowed or required by law. We may share your information with agencies or persons who need the information to do their jobs, such as MNsure employees, investigators and auditors, community assistance partners you are working with, law enforcement officials, other state, federal and local governmental agencies, your health care insurer, agency, managed care organization or others who pay for your care, and anyone else authorized by law to receive the information

What happened to the 4th Amendment?

I know defenders of Obama will quickly point out that most websites include similar language, but Obamacare is a mandate. Its involuntary (unless you helped elect Obama and Democrats and are owed a political favor so are granted a waver).

I guess Nancy Pelosi was right, we Congress did have to pass the bill before we could read the bill.

Just a reminder to everyone: Senator Al Franken was the deciding vote in passing Obamacare. Upon completion of his successful theft of the 2008 election recount, he became the 60th vote in the US Senate giving Democrats the ability to break a GOP filibuster on this disastrous law.

#makeDClisten No Training Included In Daytoncare – Killing Obamacare Is The Only Way To Protect Americans

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

What happens when a single party is allowed to exercise its ideology with out criticism, examination, or media scrutiny? Its called Obamacare and its crazy uncle Daytoncare (MNSure).

On October 1st, every Minnesotan will be required to participate in the Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange that was mandated by Obamacare. What is the exchange and how will it affect the millions of existing contracts Minnesotans have with insurance providers is unclear just a week out from the launch.

What should really scare all Minnesotans is this from the Pioneer Press:

A week before the launch of Minnesota’s health exchange, no insurance agents, county workers or “navigators” have been fully trained and certified to help consumers enroll in coverage through the new system, state officials told legislators Tuesday.

In a week 6 million Minnesotans need to know just what the law passed thanks to Al Franken’s stolen election means to them and their family. Hundreds of thousands of employers have to know what this means to their business. Thousands of state and county employees are being forced to impliment the Federal mandate, yet none of them have even received information or training as to explain what Minnesotans can expect.

A lot of Republican strategists are scared of taking a bold stand and “risking” a shutdown over defunding Obamacare, but the fact is no one knows what Obamacare really is. Heck, Nancy Pelosi said the only way to know what was in the bill was to pass it. Three years later, even the bureaucrats tasked with carrying out the Federal mandate don’t know what was in the bill.

Well the law is supposed to be enacted in a week and no one knows what the law really does or what it means. No one has yet been trained to explain to Americans what it means to American families.

Not stopping Obamacare’s unknown affects on Americans’ health care is immoral, unAmerican, and unDemocratic.

Repeal the provision in Obamacare that allows for the Obama appointed Secretary of Health & Human Services to grant a waiver to groups or businesses and force mandate every single state, federal, county, and municipal employee to participate in the same laws that other Americans will be forced to.

If Obamacare is so dang good, then every single American should be mandated to participate. No one should be excluded. No one should be granted a waiver. And no one should be forced to participate in a government policy that no one has been trained to even explain to citizens.

Common sense says this was a mistake. Logic says this is insanity and political marksmanship and overreach. Honesty says this was the mother of all political mistakes ever made in Washington and something that at the very least needs more time to be examined and tested.

To allow Obamacare to be implemented at this point, with no proof of readiness, benefits, or affordability is grounds for recall, impeachment, and a psych eval for anyone unwilling to be honest and admit that its one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated on the American people.
