Skip to comments.Repeal Ponzi scheme known as CLASS
Posted on 01/18/2012 7:10:11 AM PST by act212
Obamacare appears ready to collapse under its own weight. Look at the CLASS Act, a government-run long-term care program Congress is likely to vote to repeal from the 2010 law.
Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) ignored warnings from the Medicare actuary and the American Academy of Actuaries when they added this budget gimmick to the 2010 health law. A bipartisan Senate majority voted to strip CLASS from the law, but Democratic leaders needed CLASS premiums to offset the costs of unrelated parts of Obamacare.

How stupid do pelosi reid and 0dumbo think we are?
Ryan and others shouted long and loudly about this and other ponzi tricks in Obamacare.
Thnaks for posting this. we all can make sure it gets spread around.
IMHO: COMPLETELY WRONG STRATEGY. Best Strategy: Load the bill up with TONS of give-aways, rescind ALL waivers, and make the revocation retroactive - they have to pay ALL back payments, fees, etc. Have Justice Dept. lawyers suing unions, corporations, health care providers, etc. while saying how “My hands are tied by Obamacare’s rules.”
In other words, make the bill this hulking, expensive, unworkable monstrosity. Then you will have all sorts of allies for repealing it IN IT’S ENTIRETY, with the added benefit that you can tar the Dummys with the label of this monstrosity for 2 generations.
How can anyone support a party who has to lie and sneak things in to accomplish its goals? Obviously, their goals aren’t our goals.
That strategy ranks right up there with Let’s reelect Obama so the people will see just how bad the Democrats are. Then they will never elect them again.
Yeah, right! That’s the ticket!
And your strategy is to just repeal the bits that are immediately costly and leave the:
1) Bulk of the bill’s rules intact.
2) Burden of paying for all this in place, and
3) Obama friends with no/reduced payments.
Nice. Go back to Koz.
Speaking of Ponzi schemes, what about Social Security? That ticking time bomb does not have much longer...
Why would you think that? Do you think your strategy and the one you falsely attribute to me are the only two possibilities?
Take it easy.
I know you are sorta right.
But I ‘ HOPE” some of the people who got seduced by the media portrayal of 0dumbo and were carefully turned against W and GOP ( yes he derserved some of the scorn) have opened their eyes and wised up..
Pelosi? SF, enough said.
reid I have no answer for
so back to my hope enough people have wised up
Ahhh. No strategy at all and an attempt at change of subject.
You’re drawing dead. Fold
I will take your advice. Arguing with a dolt is meaningless.
Note: Still no strategy, and now name callng.
