$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.

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”.

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.

The Other September 11th We Must Never Forget

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

The Obama administration has blood on its hands over the Benghazzi attacks. Don’t forget that the same people demanding we bomb Syria today, did nothing when American lives were at risk. What’s worse is that they tried to blame the deaths on an American who made a stupid video on the internet rather than accept responsibility and admit the truth.

They did nothing when Americans were under attack in that Embassy. Ever since September 11, 2012, they have done what ever they could to cover up the facts that show how inept and derelict they are.

While I normally repost my Never Forget on this day, I chose to post this little video of the lady who was responsible for the security of the American lives lost. They were under her watch and supervision and died on the job. She’s a power hungry career politician who will do and say whatever she has to to achieve power for her egomaniacal quest to change America into a socialist utopia.

Democrats used to be upset at Republicans for remembering what happened in New York, Pennsylvania, and to the Pentagon in 2001. They would accuse us of politicizing it, and replaying the video of the Towers falling to drum up the public support for wars that they opposed. But now they are the ones waving flags trying to ramp up the Patriotism to support a war with no calculable benefit for America.

You see, I’m tired of people who used to slam Bush and Republicans for being war mongers waging those same wars, starting new ones, spying on Americans, and fucking up the world and America in their little quest to play Sim City with America. Like Foreign Policy is a burden when they really just want to control us little ants in the farm.

The Obama administration has spent more time and resources trying to undermine the American people, to divide and conquer us, in his (and don’t forget Hillary’s) quest to have a chicken in every pot. They are waging a political war on American soil trying to fundamentally transform the once greatest nation in the world, into a centrally planned bureaucratic nightmare where freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility are illegal. They didn’t start it, its been going on for decades, but they are the ones finally pulling the trigger on policies designed to undo America’s exceptionalism.

Where is Dennis Kucinich when you need him to introduce an impeachment bill on Obama?

He’s waging wars and getting people killed around the globe all to distract us from the progressive domestic agenda to destroy this country.

I’m sick of seeing Obama’s face everywhere. I’m sick of him politicizing everything to suit his unAmerican agenda. I’m sure by the weekend he will be speaking to a crowd of political drones with that with the usual rhythmic cadence that sways emotions instead of logic and reason, not to mention that goll darn pesky obstacle known as the Constitution. He’ll be blaming Republicans for something, making them the bad guy for his policies failing, or beating them up over some issue to mislead the American public in to supporting policies that are bad for them. And if the polls are really against him, he’ll probably go back to having someone faint in the front of the crowd at each and every rally.

An example would be “immigration reform”. Good reform to Obama is to just allow citizens from other countries to magically become American citizens with all of our rights and benefits (aka: Government handouts to make them dependent on Democrat policies). Its a goll darn election tactic folks. These are people that have likely been breaking laws for decades in some instances that we are now being morally challenged to show compassion to because their home country sucks so bad they have no choice but to sneak into America and steal our jobs, entitlements, and educations. Rather than use the power of his Presidency to help Mexico become a place people can find a good job, be safe, education, and such, we’re going to change or ignore our own laws because its compassionate? No it would be compassionate and the right thing to do to help change Mexico for the better. 

Yes, I said Obama has an unAmerican agenda.

May God bless the families of all those who have senselessly lost their lives under Obama and Clinton’s watch, and may God bless the American people that we take elections seriously from now on and never make such a colossal series of mistakes in the voting booths that puts people that really hate the things that made America so great for over 200 years into office.

I’m tired of people being taken seriously who want to legalize theft and criminalize success.

Redistribution of wealth is theft. You don’t have a right to be lazy but still get everything handed to you. Eventually you will run out of other people to tax in order to get your free stuff.

America has no moral authority to pick sides in a civil war where one side is a murderous dictator and the other side is who tried to kill 150,000 Americans 12 years ago. Al Qaeda is the rebels in Syria folks.

Frankly Obama and the Democrats have done more damage to America in the last 5 years than the terrorists did in the last 12. That is something that I will never forget and I hope my fellow Americans wake the fuck up.

We are being manipulated. We are being used to install Marxism in America. These people lie on a daily basis and manipulate the news to suit their deceitful and dangerous agenda.

They lie and people die. But why? So you will surrender another freedom, another choice, and allow them to impose their will on you, your neighbors, and the people who employ you because they don’t think its fair that some people are more successful than others (unless of course they write a big enough check to the campaign.

Fucking commies.

Yes, I am really angry. You should be too. These people are doing everything they accused Bush of doing, but they are doubling down and actually making the world a more dangerous place. Bush destabilized the Middle East, but Obama has set in on fire. Who the hell are the good guys? Everyone kills everyone just because….

I’ve come to realize that our attempts at defeating terror was a mistake. Maybe we shouldn’t have gone into Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe we could have done things differently, taken a different approach or not at all. Fought the wars differently, or not at all. But what I don’t understand is why we are still fighting Bush’s war when the people who opposed it from the beginning are now in charge of giving the go codes to those drone strikes?

It makes no sense. What the American government is doing under Obama’s administration on our soil to our own people, not abroad, makes no damn sense. Why would they be doing exactly what they opposed for a foreign policy so vehemently after September 11, 2001? What are we or the world to gain by lobbing a few missiles and bombs into Syria? Dare I say, to blow up an Aspirin factory or something? A distraction? Another Cold war to make the American people galvanize around the party in power? Maybe we can get a 3rd term for Obama….

Sure, it could be this is the last chance to establish the perception of us being a serious world power before Russia rebuilds its a Soviet era world alliance. But that ship has sailed folks. We’d better wake the fuck up quick here at home and repeal these progressive laws and environmental bullshit because we have a cruel world coming where countries will be forced to choose between dealing with little old America desperate for fuel, food, and resources or the mighty Putin Axis of evil. We are going to need to be self dependent on resources, food, and fuel or we’re going to be begging from China and Russia. That’s their play in the Middle East. Control of the resources.

Rambling rant as usual, but I’m angry. I’m angry and you should be too. We’re being lied to and manipulated. There’s no logic as to why Obama is doing anything he is. Why Obamacare? Why the domestic spying? Why blame that movie for the murders in Benghazzi? Why bomb Assad? Why is his Treasury reporting $0 added to the national debt when we are running deficits over a hundred billion dollars? Why are federal agents being killed by guns that Obama bought illegally, smuggled to Mexico, and gave to drug cartels? Meanwhile they are trying to take them away from law abiding Americans?

What the fuck is this administration really up to? If you compare their past statements and intentions *if* they get elected, to what they are actually doing, there seems to be a design, a plan. Its not going to happen overnight. It will take quite a while, years, decades, but they will eventually succeed. It took them 50 years to get to the doorstep of socialized medicine. Obamacare isn’t the end goal, its the trojan horse that will destroy the current health care market we have, requiring a total Government take over.

“What difference does it make?” she screams when her incompetence is exposed and people are murdered.  You saw how angry Clinton was when being questioned about Benghazzi. I get that angry every damn time I hear about what Obama is going to do *to* the country I love so much. Not *for* it, but *to* America. His acceptance speak in Chicago on Election night in 2008 still gives me chills (bad ones). Fundamentally transform America….

I believe it is all by design. America is dying the death of a thousand cuts at the hands of its own President with the aid of the Democrat party. The ideas they hold dear for how to run a country are not founded in our Constitution, they are founded in the polices of Marxism. They don’t want to just run the country better than Republicans, they want to rule over the country and its people.

We must remove any politician who supports the policies of progressives from office electorally. Peacefully. We must take our country back from those who clearly hate it. We must educate the public into understanding that free markets, freedom, liberty, and Capitalism is why we have what we have. Marxism first requires the creation of wealth. Why? Because socialism doesn’t allow growth, it levels the playing field equally. Equal misery if you will. Not everyone is going to get to live in a penthouse if we just eliminate the 1%. Nope, the end result of the goal of the Democrats is a crappy life for everyone, but hey, everyone has the saem crappy life so there won’t be any envy. They don’t hate the Red, White, and Blue, but they hate the way we got here and they want to make sure they decide what’s best for you from now on.

So why are we waging wars around the world again when we were lead to believe they were wars of choice by Senators Obama, Clinton, and Kerry?  Wag the dog my friends. Wag the dog.

Try Again?

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Today’s America is seemingly looking and feeling much more like the Colonies that were once ruled by a King.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Tax Code May Be the Most Progressive Since 1979

Published: Saturday, 5 Jan 2013 | 8:52 AM ET

WASHINGTON — With 2013 bringing tax increases on the incomes of a small sliver of the richest Americans, the country’s top earners now face a heavier tax burden than at any time since Jimmy Carter was president.

The last-minute deal struck by the departing 112th Congress raised taxes on a handful of the highest-earning Americans, with about 99.3 percent of households experiencing no change in their income taxes. But the Tax Policy Center estimates that the average family in the top 1 percent will pay a federal tax rate of more than 36 percent this year, up from 28 percent in 2008. That is the highest rate since 1979, at least.

Heck of a job John Boehner.

Why do I dare demean America by calling us socialist? Because “Progressivism” is somewhere between socialism and communism.

 

From The INBOX: Grrrrreeeeeaaaaattttt

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Got an email from someone’s HR about the new tax rates.

My response.

Its just the beginning. Even Tom Petters & Bernie Maddow  know we are hosed as a country. We can’t even balance the budget in one year, let alone pay down the debt or liabilities.
Congress has 2 months to pretend its all ok. The next fight is the debt ceiling. If it doesn’t get increased, everyone will see massive tax hikes. We’re running over a trillion in the red. All of the tax increases passed on Tuesday don’t come close to bringing in another trillion. When they were talking people earning over $250K a year it ‘supposedly’ would be $82 Billion a year in revenue. They shrunk that pool so it won’t even come that close.    To quote Clint Eastwood “This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”
This “deal” will run its course in just weeks. The dangnamit Republicans should have let us go off cliff so cuts would have been made and everyone would have felt the pain of having to pay for kid in the candy store government. Instead everyone is just annoyed but still addicted to the government cheese. Don’t cut my program. Don’t raise MY taxes. Tax that guy over there and give it to me.
Good explanation of the 2% impact.

That’s because payroll taxes will increase on most workers after Congress decided not to reverse an expiration of a payroll tax cut – a development that was largely expected. Payroll taxes rose to 6.2% under the deal, from 4.2% last year.

The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimates that 77% of Americans will see higher taxes because of the elimination of the payroll tax cut, meaning $115 billion less in disposable income. …

A household making $50,000 to 75,000 a year will make $822 less this year than last year, according to Rosenberg’s calculations. Those making $75,000 to $100,000 will see $1,206 less in their paychecks, while those making $200,000 to $500,000 will see a drop of $2,711 in their paychecks.

BREAKING: Fiscal Crisis Averted: Can FInally Goes Off Cliff

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Rather than keep kicking the can down the road, Obama and Republicans agreed to just kick the fiscal sanity can off a cliff once and for all.

Which is such great news America. Yep, taxes raised on the uber successful… er rich so they can pay “their fair share” which is exponentially higher and a larger share of the overall financial burden than the rest of Americans…. Which we also just saw in France has an equal and opposite result…..

Oh and spending cuts are not an option, and oh yeah, Obama will not take no on a Debt limit increase….

Which is of course, elevating the fiscal cliff America will continue to face…..

Facts have been withheld from this entire fiscal cliff debate. So have honesty and rationality.

America got screwed last night.

Washington avoided accountability for their decades of floating checks and promises for power and to win elections.

Need immigrant voters: Push amnesty and demonize anyone who just wants to secure our porous borders.

Need senior votes: Refuse to address the Medicare & Social Security insolvency problems and demonize anyone who wants to begin the necessary reforms to protect future generations.

Need young vote: Push gay marriage and demonize anyone who wants simply to define traditional marriage by painting them as the evil that wore white hoods and murdered people for their skin color.

Need hard core anti-Capitalist voters: Push for socialist redistribution tax rates and demonize anyone who wants to protect America’s greatest asset, its mighty  economy, from those who see it as its greatest evil.

The fiscal cliff was about un-sustainability in federal spending and liabilities. What happened last night did nothing to address either of those, just check off one of the political to-do’s of the radical leftist socialists.

Its very disappointing that the people who voted yes last night did so after taking an oath to defend this country from all enemies, foreign AND domestic.

MPR Joins Klobuchar In Proving They Failed Math

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Klobuchar suckersLet me just start off here with this…. Its the spending stupid … Its how everyone should be looking at the “fiscal cliff” debate. But because we are allowing progressives who hate free markets and capitalism to define the debate, here goes.

MPR’s DFL talking point regurgitation series “Poligraph” is out with its latest volley to help the Democrats appear credible. In the latest installment, they bend over backwards to bail Amy Klobuchar out for her cut and paste progressive talking points / ambulance chaser approach to being a public official. MPR is bailing Klobuchar out on the Democrat talking point that just raising taxes on “the rich” will solve the budget mess.

In a recent interview on ABC’s This Week, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, talked about the so-called fiscal cliff. She pointed out that the Senate had already passed a plan that would extend the Bush-era tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 and eliminate them for those making more than that.

The proposal would take a big chunk out of the nation’s deficit, she said.

Not true. We’re running trillion dollar deficits nationally. “Big dent”? More like tiny drop.

“As you know, if we go back to the Clinton levels for people making over $250,000 we literally save $1 trillion in 10 years,” she said.

One trillion is in the ballpark.

This ponzi scheme of a political debate is based on the Democrat’s secret weapon, the 10 year budgeting guidelines. Its the practice of taking a single year’s line item and assuming that you can bank it each and every year. It also is very handy in helping deflect factual analysis of the overall proposals. People get confused by large numbers. Wow, you can take “nearly a trillion dollars from the rich and it will cut one trillion off the deficit? Let’s just do it already!”

Sounds so lovely, doesn’t it?  Wave your magic wand and the Trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see goes away. No more racking up debt, and wall of a sudden Amy Klobuchar grabs the wheel of the tour bus racing toward the fiscal cliff. jerks it hard left, averts the fiscal cliff entirely. Everything is good….

Its sad, but I bet many reporters in America see Klobuchar and Obama as some sort of socialist super heroes.

MPR even goes so far as to throw in a Democrat talking point that Klobuchar left out.

Still, the plan stands to lower the nation’s deficit, according to a recent report by the Congressional Budget Office, the non-partisan number-crunching arm of Congress.

They are using the Democrat logic that when Democrats want to increase a budget by 20% but them dang Republicans will only let it increase by 8% its a draconian cut to the bone.

Let’s be clear here. This tax increase Amy Klobuchar is pushing amounts to $82.4 billion a year in tax revenue. Let me do the math for you. MPR claims it will bring in $824 Billion over 10 years, so that is $82.4 Billion a year. Well if we are running Trillion dollar deficits and we cut 82.4 billion out of them, that’s an eight percent fix.

Meaning that over the next ten years, instead of adding $10 Trillion to the national debt, we’re only going to add $9.917 Trillion to the national debt if we just make them dangnamit rich people pay their fair share. 

What was the Federal Deficit this year? Well over a trillion. You see, when playing with numbers as large as we are, a billion sounds huge, 82.4 sounds enormous, and 824 billion sounds like the solution, but…..

RF Flashbacks:

The Numbers Don’t Support Taxing The Rich As A Fiscal Cliff Solution

Meet The Rich & Then What – UPDATE

Since Amy Klobuchar was sworn in as a United States Senator, the Federal Budget has added almost $6 Trillion in deficit spending to the debt all by itself. This excludes all the unfunded liabilities and other things…  ($5,951,974,000,000)

If her dream of a more progressive tax rate had come true and there was a return to the Clinton tax rates, and we would have booked the $82.4 Billion a year…… $82.4 Billion over six years = $494 Billion.

$5,951,974,000,000 – $494,000,000,000 = $5,457,974,000,000 

We’d still have racked up $5.5 Trillion is federal deficit spending under Amy Klobuchar’s first term had the Bush tax cuts for “the Rich” been repealed as Amy Klobuchar had said she’d make happen way back in her 2006 campaign. 

Why, yes, we still would have been running record deficits. Which is hard to believe if you pay attention to the Democrat talking points.

Oddly since Democrats took control of the US House & Senate in 2007 (AHEM same year that Amy Klobuchar was first elected), the deficits have skyrocketed. But revenue has been on a relatively steady pace, give or take a few hundred billion every year, but spending has increased exponentially after Clinton.

Its the spending stupid.

And yes, this spending happened under Bush, when he was trying to be compassionate and appeal to and work with Democrats. The key is, Spending is increasing at rates far greater than under any other President in modern times.

In 2001 the Federal Budget spent $1.86 Trillion. 

In 2011 the Federal Budget spent $3.6 Trillion

If we as a nation are going to rely on Government spending, we are ALL going to have to pay. If you took every dime from “the Rich” you’d only solve the problem for a year, then what?

To avoid the Fiscal Cliff, we must stop adding to the debt. That means not just balancing the budget, but running a surplus to start paying off the debt. Klobuchar is talking about $82.4 billion solving a trillion dollar problem. That’s an 8% drop in the bucket. If we can just keep transferring the national debt balance from one credit card to the other, maybe in 200 more years, that 8% increase in revenue can pay off the debt or something.

All things aside4, let’s just get back tot he math of this whole ponzi scheme.

$17 Trillion National Debt / $82.4 Billion = 206 years for the added revenue to come close to paying off the current national debt.

The numbers don’t lie. What Amy Klobuchar is suggesting as the cure for the fiscal cliff would take 206 years to solve. I don’t think we can wait that long.

 

MPR accidently gives us the info to prove the only way to avert the fiscal cliff while avoiding any spending cuts is to raise taxes across the board.

If tax cuts are extended for everyone, it would cost about $4.5 trillion. […]

Whoops, they accidently admitted that the Bush tax cuts did actually aid more than just the rich, and the lion’s share of the “lost federal revenue” went to people outside “the rich”. $3.7 Trillion of tax cuts went to people earning less than $250,000 a year. But you have had it drummed into your head the last 8 years how those Bush tax cuts only went to the rich. Klobuchar’s friends in Washington and allies in the media even went so far as to tell you that in order for the rich to get their tax cuts, the poor had to suffer.

Let’s look at the chart again. According to the White House, the lowest deficit in an Obama budget is $609 Billion. Meaning that even IF Klobuchar and he raised taxes on the rich, we’d still be running over a half a trillion in debt which is added to the national debt, which makes me wonder how a fact checking media outlet can say that this notion actually reduces debt. Oh wait, it reduces the expected increase…..

[…] But if they are extended for those falling in lower tax brackets, it would cost the government $3.7 trillion.

Let’s circle back to this here. If the Bush tax cuts which “cost” the federal government $4.5 Trillion would ever have happened, Bush would have run surpluses in almost every year. Of course this assumes lots of things, like these tax cuts not being responsible for ending the dot com 2001 recession among other things…..

In the 10 years of the Bush tax cuts, using Democrat and MPR verbiage, we’ve lost $450 Billion a year in revenue. If you go and add $450 Billion a year in revenue to the Bush years, we would have actually cut the debt. Again, this is odd, since we are being told by Amy Klobuchar that cutting taxes on “the rich” is what got us into this mess, yet if a deal isn’t reached, taxes on millions are going to be going up on January 1st.

They said that only the rich got tax cuts all through the Bush years. Amy Klobuchar made that the corner stone of her 2006 campaign. Yet, not only do we now see hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts to all levels of wage earners, that “the rich” actually got a small portion of the tax cut compared to the lower and middle class. Amy I calling her a liar, well, the math supports that notion.

You cannot fool the math

This entire debate over the fiscal cliff, or the so-called facts of the debate over the fiscal cliff, are all being waged on the revenue side of the ledger sheet. We’re being hood winked into thinking the problem is simply a matter of taxes and marginal rates. Marginal rates, like the kind that affect only 1 or 2 % of the public, which no one really can relate to, and that are very easy to blame and create public angst toward. Its the classic communist revolution ploy of pitting the haves vs. the have nots. But the real problem with the fiscal cliff is that we are piling on debt with no end in sight. The only way to actually avert going over the cliff is to pay down the debt.

Do I need to go over the math again? How an 8% reduction in a trillion deficit will take 200 years to close?

America is approaching the fiscal cliff based on liabilities, not year to year budgetary line items (discretionary spending & pork) and political battles over marginal income tax rates. We owe as a nation  than we are worth, and have bills coming due with no foreseeable way to pay. America is under water financially.

Remember that line from Obama about spreading the wealth around? This tax increase isn’t really about the fiscal cliff. Heck, like Minnesota Democrats, whether in surplus or deficit, they have always wanted to create a new 4th tier income tax on “the rich”. Each and every year, they want to do the same thing. Take away from some and give to others.

But we’re being told its to solve the fiscal cliff nightmare…..

Democrats want to adjust the deficit numbers by changing the digit in the far right of the numbers when we need to go from running deficits to running surpluses. The only true way to avoid the fiscal cliff is to turn the car around and drive away from the cliff.

I’ve heard one person say recent;y, what the compromise will look like is $100 Billion in new taxes, $100 billion in spending cuts, but they fail to address how we are still going to add $8 to 9 trillion to the debt over 10 years….

All Amy Klobuchar and MPR seem inclined to do is take the 1.1 Trillion pound brick off the accelerator and replace it with a 1.017.6 Trillion pound brick.

Marginal rates and tinkering on the wrong side of the ledger sheet is not going to fix anything.

Wake up America. We have a huge spending problem. Look at Europe. What Democrats have suggested has been tried before. Its failed there and it will fail here.
