Yes, Speaker Boehner: Democrats Think You're Stupid and Weak. Yes, They're Laughing At You
Doug Ross Journal ^ | April 27, 2012 | DRJ

How else to explain President Obama's shameless ripoff of $8.3 billion in taxpayer money, which he has turned into a de facto campaign contribution?

Let me explain: when Democrats passed the 2,700-page Obamacare bill -- you know, the one that not one person bothered to read -- they didn't realize it contained several electoral time-bombs.

One of its dictates shredded the popular Medicare Advantage (MA) program starting in... October. Yep: just before the 2012 elections. Realizing their mistake, HHS head Kathleen Sebelius decided to steal $8.3 billion from another part of Medicare to hide the mistake from seniors until after the election.

A new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) shows that a demonstration program created by the Obama Administration in Medicare Advantage (MA) is primarily designed to "demonstrate" how to hide politically unpopular parts of Obamacare.

...Obamacare’s cuts to MA would severely reduce the quality of the program and force enrollees back into traditional Medicare... "Phased in between 2012 and 2017, the MA cuts will substantially restrict the ability of Medicare beneficiaries to choose the health plans that best meet their needs and will result in substantial reductions in coverage for many millions of seniors and disabled Americans." Medicare’s Office of the Actuary predicts a 50 percent drop in enrollment by 2017.

...The GAO’s review of the [bogus] demonstration’s budgetary impact shows that it is “at least seven times larger than that of any other Medicare demonstration conducted since 1995.” The estimated cost of the program is a whopping $8.35 billion... The GAO recommended that the White House “should cancel the MA Quality Bonus Payment Demonstration and allow the MA quality bonus payment system established by [Obamacare] to take effect.”


In short, the GAO exposed the ripoff and strongly recommended that HHS cease and desist. Even The Washington Post has urged the Obama administration to stop this unlawful activity, because it is intended only to temporarily disguise the damage that Obamacare will bring.

Should HHS fail to cancel this illicit campaign contribution, the House of Representatives needs to subpoena Kathleen Sebelius and demand an explanation. And if she perjures herself, it must hold her in Contempt of Congress.

It's time to stop playing around, Speaker Boehner. It's time to fight back against this lawlessness. They're laughing at you, Mr. Speaker. They're laughing at Seniors. And they think you're stupid and weak.

So where are the tv ads about this? The Republican party has an assortment of issues they could hammer Obama on. They won’t do it.

Boehner and company have had so many chances to DO something about the deficit and debt. They could stand up and act like MEN, and not metrosexual men, which is what they all are. I am sick and tired of these RINO’S!! A balanced budget by 2040!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That is ridiculous! These idiots have to GO!! The Republican party must be replaced by an AUTHENTIC CONSERVATIVE PARTY! I will NOT vote for the presumptive Republican nominuee! Talk about a metrosexual!!

They certainly do not represent what is good for the country or good for working Americans.

They feed the entitled, they pay for the entitled health care, they keep the entitled home and send them checks for doing nothing.

It gets them elected and destroys our country. That is their mission.

Here is some background. Hope it helps. "He kept a brave face over glasses of red wine, until Republican Rep. Tom Latham of Iowa rose to toast his best friend. That's when Boehner, who is prone to tears (it drives him crazy, but he can't help it), lost it.

"Everybody in the whole room cried," he said."

Oh GREAT.... I signed up and paid for a Medicare Advantage program just last week and it goes into effect May 1. So does this mean that in October it will end and I won’t find out about that until after the election?

P.S.- Conservatives also think you’re stupid and weak; however, we are not laughing at you. We are plotting against you because the only way we can get back to our Constitutional republic is to first install true conservatives.

Lifelong Republican here and I too think Boehner is a pathetic whiney little jerk with NO cajone’s.
Fool refuses to go after Holder for fast and furious.
Fool is too much a punk to go after the marxist and all his illegalities.
If Boehner is the best the pubbies can come up with then it may just be time to fold.

RINOs don’t want to rock the boat, because they plan for the day when it is their turn again. No cuts or changes, just their turn to take the loot from taxpayers!

Boehner is the most sheepish Speaker the House has seen in a decade - we need to find a Bizarro World Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House!
