IOW Obamacare is F-ing BS! But we knew that.
To fill out the form or not to fill out the form. That is the question.
I wonder about not answering the sexual questions. In 1971, in high school I was called out of a timed test to the main office. A clerk angrily told me that I had not filled out the place on a form they’d sent home demanding to know household income. I said, “My parents told me that they weren’t asking for any support from the government and it was none of the school’s business.” She told me, “Well guess!” I said, “no.” She turned to another clerk and said, “What am I going to do?” The other clerk said, “Well, we can’t turn it in that way. Just put something down.”
So, will they “just put something down?” I’ve wondered about filling out “race” on employment forms. Last time I had the chance I asked somebody in the HR department. She told me, “well, we need black professionals so badly that it’s the first thing we check. (To meet government contract requirements.) They have priority over anybody else. If you don’t fill it out we assume you’re white.”
"I mean, can you imagine a defund Obamacare effort, how much more likelihood it might hold if members of Congress really were upset with how much it was gonna cost 'em? But then Obama came up and took care of that. He's gonna subsidize 75% of their premium, so they now don't care. But if he hadn't subsidized 75% of their premiums for Congress, Senate, and their staffs, then they might not be so eager to have this thing fully funded and implemented. But Obama took care of them. But when he goes out to these low-information audiences and college kids, he doesn't care. He just tells them how wonderful and how great it is, and they'll deal with it later. "
"You really have to wonder, if Obamacare is so great, why did Congress demand to be exempted from it? And they did. I mean, they demanded to be exempted from it like the elites demand to be exempted from everything they subject all the rest of us to. Why are the unions trying to get their own carve-out? Why is everybody trying to make some move to get their own carve-out or waiver from this thing if it is so wonderful? In fact, if it's so wonderful, why does it even need to be sold at all? Why does Obama have to go out there and tout the thing, if it's so wonderful? I mean, it ought to just sell itself, shouldn't it?"
An excellent question by Rand Paul!
the most detailed and helpful post I’ve ever seen - thank you!
Or (I probably should say) as nearly as possible with something so fundamentally flawed. That means all exemptions, waivers, and subsidies are rescinded. That all members of government for the President on down must agree to join. Immediately and publicly.
Abe Lincoln is credited as saying "The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly. " In this case, Obamacare has enough bombs of its own to kill it, and the Democrats know it. Without those exemptions and waivers, they don't want anything to do with it.
Let's really hold their feet to the fire here.
Keeper for later.
I have updated this list so it now has 141 items. The link is the same as in the first post.
