$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.

 

Will The Real Julianne Please Stand Up?

Julianne Ortman is waging a firebrand conservative campaign for the US Senate. She’s constantly claiming the high ground on conservative issue after issue, but her record doesn’t always back up her new found “principles” if you ask me.

Take our 2nd Amendment rights for instance, she claims to be the champion of gun rights, but she doesn’t own guns and refuses to even allow them in her home. Its hard to take her 2A bonafides seriously if she doesn’t walk the walk.

The US Senate is taking up the President’s $10.10 minimum wage hike today. Where does Julianne Ortman stand not he issue?

Q: What is your opinion on an increase in the minimum wage?

Ortman: Increasing the minimum wage will translate into fewer entry level positions and hours, and also higher costs. The increased costs of doing business get passed along to consumers and/or labor. There are better ways to encourage investment, stable hiring, and job growth.

She’s against raising the minimum wage because it would increase the cost of doing business.

Out of no where, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty waded back into the political fray and gave his opinion on the Minimum wage debate taking police.

“If you’re going to talk the talk about being for the middle class and the working person, if we have the minimum wage, it should be reasonably adjusted from time to time,” said Pawlenty, now the CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable, a bank lobbying firm.

Many of you will remember that Pawlenty signed a Minimum Wage increase into law when he was Governor in 2005. Conveniently, Julianne Ortman was a State Senator in 2005 and voted on the increase.

Given her staunch conservative stance in 2014, surely State Senator Ortman voted against the minimum wage increase…..

Senate floor vote
May 3, 2005 (SF3)

Workers who make the minimum wage are in line for a $1 an hour raise in August, following a Minnesota Senate vote that affirmed a compromise approved by the House and supported by Gov. Tim Pawlenty. The measure passed the Senate 44-22.

Result: Passed

Julianne E. Ortman Republican 34 FOR

Ortman’s 2014 campaign sounds great. She is making herself sound like a conservative champion who will go into the trenches and fight liberalism with her last dying breath, but her record doesn’t back up her new found principles.

Her career rating from the Minnesota Legislative Evaluation Association is only 70%. 

Here career rating from the Taxpoayer’s League of Minnesota is only 86%.

Does the 2014 US Senate campaign of Julianne Ortman sound like that of a rock solid conservative? Yes.

Does the record of State Senator Julianne Ortman look like that of a rock solid conservative champion? Nope. 

Friends, be careful not to let a candidate tell you what you want to hear, deeds speak louder then words.

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!

DFL Rolls Out Shiny Ball To Distract From MNSure Lies

After the utter incompetence and bald faced lies of Governor Dayton and the DFLers running MNSure was exposed over the weekend, they were desperate for something to distract Minnesotans with. Hey, why not a billion tax on employers and kick back to their union buds?

DFL leaders make deal to hike the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour

Tied to inflation of course so they never have to actually vote for socialism again.

It is quite astonishing the scope of the coverup of the DFL’s mishandling of MNSure and the Obamacare rollout in Minnesota.

The economic impacts of the DFLs two years of unaccountability and Marxist agenda will be felt for a long long time.

This minimum wage increase is simply another form of redistribution. They don’t care about any of the ramifications.

Its a sad day for Minnesota and the Republic that these wolves are guarding the hen house and no one seems willing to shine a light on their corruptive abuses of power and disrespect for the citizens of Minnesota.

Like Kids In The Candy Store – DFL Electioneering Bills Launched

No this is not an April Fools joke.

A pair of House proposals is being released to spend a combined $975 million on public works construction projects.

Rather than putting everything into one bill, House Capital Investment Committee Chairwoman Alice Hausman says she’ll introduce two on Tuesday. She says one will contain $850 million worth of proposed borrowing and the other will have $125 million in projects that would be paid in cash.

It’s an unusual tact, but one spurred on in part by the state’s surplus. Lawmakers plan to pay cash for some things to save on interest costs.

There’s also political intrigue. Borrowing bills require three-fifths majorities to pass. A cash bill would require only a simple majority.

By Capital Investment, DFLers mean, making sure their special interests get all the kick backs so they will work for Democrats to maintain control of the Capital.

Must Read: Ortman’s Regrettable Statements

Gary at Let Freedom Ring has some whopper quotes from Julianne Ortman on Obamacare.

“I’m not a full repeal person. I think the House of Representatives has voted 40 times to repeal it. The Senate is not going to repeal it. So if plan A is ‘Let’s do a repeal,’ we better start talking about Plan B. Because plan A got nowhere,” she said. Ortman said she would like to see Congress go “piece-by-piece through that new law and figure out what works and what doesn’t.”

Obamacare Designed To Bail Out Insurance Co’s Not Reduce Costs

Another dirty little secret of Democrat’s Health Care Reform agenda: Insurance Company Bailouts

The name of the law is The Affordable Care Act, but in its details are provisions for skyrocketing insurance costs.

 Indeed, it’s bad enough that Obamacare is projected by the Congressional Budget Office to funnel $1,071,000,000,000.00 (that’s $1.071 trillion) over the next decade (2014 to 2023) from American taxpayers,through Washington, to health insurance companies.

This whole thing is about destroying the “private” insurance market requiring a full blown Government takeover and implementation of a single payer system.

This isn’t about a website’s failure, failed rollout, or deadlines. This is about the radical agenda of Progressive Democrats and their desire to nationalize our health care.

Not one single line of the thousands of pages of the law or its rule making code for Obamacare or its state run spinoffs do anything to actually lower health care costs.
