Can Dayton Prevent MNSure’s Failure Before Public Is Fully Addicted To Government Run Health Insurance

The Democrat policy that was supposed to fix expensive health insurance needs another bailout proving once again that the whole program is not only a scam, but unsustainable.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Lackluster enrollment in private plans and shrinking federal funds may force the state to cover a greater share of Minnesota’s healthinsurance exchange.

MNsure stands to get another $11.7 million in state money from Gov. Mark Dayton’s budget proposal for technological improvements. The state has to chip in more because public plan signups have far outpaced private plan enrollments.

The governor also wants to assume costs for staff that review insurance rates and investigate complaints. Those changes would bring the state’s running tab for the exchange to at least $23 million.

Don’t forget, the people who Dayton put in charge to run this thing already got performance bonuses. They were only held accountable for a failed launch after it was too late. There was no oversight of MNSure, “The Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange”.

I have been saying that Obamacare was a trojan horse for single-payer government run insurance since before it was hastily rushed through a Democrat Congress. It was clear to most sane people that Obamacare was a tourniquet for Health Insurance problems, not a cure. It was not designed to fix the high cost of health insurance and health care. I believe it was specifically designed to destroy the existing system.

You see, Obamacare was designed to bankrupt insurance companies. Mandating coverage of everyone, no matter how expensive their preexisting condition is, is going to have ramifications.  Democrats who passed Obamacare & MNSure must have known that this would hurt everyone else. Oh yeah, they call that fairness.

The fact is Democrats never intended insurance exchanges like MNSure and Healthcare.gov to be the solution. But the problem is, that their placebo has failed too soon. The question is, do we have the stomach for actually repealing a failed and unsustainable entitlement before people get addicted to “free” expensive stuff that ends up ruining entire sectors of our economy?

You see, if Mark Dayton can bandaid MNSure together for a few more years, more people will get addicted to government run, very poorly, health insurance they will be too afraid to go back to a free market solution.

Obama Proves His Marxist Heart With Net Neutrality

The Federal Government taking over the internet and making it a public utility is yet another example of President Obama’s (and Senator Al Franken’s)  lust for a perfect Marxist utopia. Where someone else pays for what you want. But don’t let any of your Minnesota friends know that Al Franken is a left wing nutjob.

Internet is a service. You are buying a service, you do not have a right to it. If you use more than someone else, you should pay more. If your usage is causing a slowdown for everyone else, why shouldn’t the company protect other customers?

yes, there is room for debate about the tactics and ethics of all internet providers and key companies in the internet – Google for example. They’ve been censoring search results and promoting others in a pay to play scheme for years, but they don’t get punished.

Friends, Net Neutrality sounds so wonderful, but this is classic Marxism. Someone built a product (the internet and its wonderous way it gets to your home, work, or mobile device) and the Progressive left wants to steal their product and spread the wealth around.

Set aside your dislike for Comcast, Verizon, ATT, etc and think about it. Don’t use Government to punish someone or something you don’t like.

In a free society, you have to assume risk. In a free society, competition will drive better and cheaper goods and services.

This is another reach of Government. Once they control the internet, what makes you think they won’t tell you what you can and cannot see on it? They ruined health insurance. They ruined school lunches.

Wake up people. You’re being played by a Marxist. Think don’t feel.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.

Obama’s Election Day Message: You Can’t Possibly Run Your Own Life

Via the DNC, President Obama sends out this GOTV email this election day morning.

If you don’t vote today, you’re letting someone else decide the future for you.

You’re letting someone else pick a reality that will shape your life for two years. Today is just that simple.

So don’t let it happen, Andy.

Confirm your polling place, and make sure you and your friends and family are the ones deciding the future:

Barack Obama

The President of the United States used to be known as the leader of the free world, but President Obama’s message to his supporters is one of dependence and a lack of faith that these Americans can possibly manage their own lives with out the tethers of the nanny state.

 

Franken Can’t Have It Both Ways On Iraq

Senator Al Franken got elected, in large part for the backlash against Republicans for the war in Iraq. He was a chief proponent of lobbying criticism at the decision to go to war. Now that chaos is spreading in the middle east due to the US doing what Al Franken wanted (IE: Leaving), and Iraq and Syria are falling to radical extremists, was Al Franken’s 2008 campaign rhetoric the right prescription, but more importantly, what does now – Sen. Franken have to say to a Democrat President faced with tough choices on national security and the growing global risk of radical Islam?

Great video by the MNGOP highlighting the hypocrisy of Democrats on Iraq and threats of doing nothing.

Google Kills Birds in CA, But Promotes How Evil Vikes Stadium ??

Big BrotherFor those that know me well, they know I really don’t like Google. Their bogus (pay to stay) search results and all seeing eye of an information gatekeeping empire should scare the living begeebus out of every American. They get special treatment from the US Government because they cooperate with them like a good fascist company would do. Oh and they lean left too.

But I was not aware that not only do they have the pay to stay web search billion dollar business model that also selectively editorializes web traffic, but Google also owns a solar energy  farm that is killing birds.

IVANPAH DRY LAKE, Calif. –  A new form of solar energy is having an unwanted side effect: It makes some birds ignite in midair.

California’s energy commission is studying the issue of bird deaths at a new kind of solar plant that works with concentrated sun rays. The technology has proved unexpectedly deadly to birds at a new solar plant in the Mojave Desert. It’s owned by Google and two California energy companies.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is urging the state to hold off on permitting another plant of the same kind. It wants more study of what it says is the significant number of birds igniting and falling as they fly above the plant.

Anyone wanna bet that since Google is reaping profits from COUGH subsidized COUGH solar energy that this would potentially color their search engine rankings on energy production as a whole? Dare I say they maybe even venture into activism by spiking stories on traditional fossil fuel energy sources from search results?

After all, any for profit company would do everything within its power to hurt the competition – with in the bounds of the law of course. Did I meant I think they get special treatment from the US Government?

As to the Vikings’ reference…. Google: bird deaths minnesota and you’ll be directed to a list of stories about how the new Vikings’ stadium “may” be dangerous for birds. Meanwhile, Google’s solar plant in CA is frying birds in mid air. Do as the liberals say, not as they do….

Time to take the tin foil hat off and get to work so I can pay my taxes so we can subsidize Google’s bird killing solar power farm.

Can a private company violate your 4th amendment rights? Or only Government?

Obama’s Latest Marxist Usurpation

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism…..

No one is willing to look at the reasons why a business is leaving the US. Instead Obama is trying to claim ownership of private property. AKA: Confiscate it. That’s what a Marxist would do. Via Minnpost

“Retroactive,” no less.Jim Spencer in the Strib reports, “The Obama administration wants to stop corporate deals like a proposed Medtronic acquisition that could enable the company to save millions in U.S. taxes by shifting its headquarters to Ireland. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew this week urged the finance committees of both chambers of Congress to push legislation that restricts the ability of U.S. corporations to move their headquarters abroad to lower their tax bills. Lew wants the law made retroactive to May, a move that could scuttle Medtronic’s proposed $42.9 billion acquisition of Dublin-based Covidien.” It’ll be fascinating to see who opposes that one.

I’m pretty sure its unConstitutional to pass a law aimed specifically at a person or designated persons, but the Constitution is treated like a sneeze guard, not barrier to out of control Government in the United States of America.

The only people that can do wrong in Obama’s America are businesses and corporations.

This Republic is in serious trouble if these long train of abuses and usurpations continue.

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

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

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….

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

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!
