...no one believes you Mr Demint.

Not the liberals.
Not the media.
Not the people who vote for you.

Keep up the fight Mr DeMint.

“There’s a third reason not to stop fighting. Forget the consultants, the pundits and the pollsters; good policy is good politics. If the Republicans had not fought on ObamaCare, the compromise would have been over the budget sequester. Instead, they have retained the sequester and for the past three months ObamaCare and its failings have been front and center in the national debate. Its disastrous launch was spotlighted by our defund struggle, not overshadowed, as some contend. With a revived and engaged electorate, ObamaCare will now be the issue for the next few years.”

Jim: Don't back down.
When you get in a bad mood, play Tom Pettys song:
"I won't back down."
ZERO DON'TCARE is one bad deal for the country.
It has already affected our economy and will only get worse.
Just a thought here. As I hear some of the news about the "SHUT DOWN". ZERO now is going to use the shut down as an excuse as the reason the economy is going down the tubes.

Rhetorical question...Where is he?

Bout time.

How about tour with Palin?

Ink is one thing, mixing it up in the streets with YouTube, other social media, MSM cameras and such is another.

Time to be a very loud fly in the ointment...or rather fly on 0bummer’s Kobe beef.

While this all infuriates me to no end, I think it’s hilarous that the 20 somethings, and the over 60’s are getting hit the hardest. I feel sorry for my sons,all in their 20’s. They didn’t vote for the idiot, but a whole lot of them did, so it’s just desserts. Hopefully, after the 2014 election, when a whole lot of Dem’s & Rinos are voted out of office by conservatives, we can get the thing repealed.

Just an update from The Wise I.

A Facebook friend posted a screen capture of his premium BEFORE Obamacare and the one after.

So I did some studying, says The Wise I, who, in a former life, was an ersatz payroll/benefit manager.

His premium HAD BEEN, I round off, around $300 a month. His NEW premium was about $1,000 a month.

Of course, as Obama is hastened to add, the fellow was eligible for a subsidy which would have reduced his monthly premium down to around $300 a month.

But here’s what else they don’t tell you.

Never mind the $12,000 a year premium pricetag that this company offered, he had, get this....a $2,500 deductible!

He had a $1,000 deductible on prescriptions!

He had a co-pay of 30% and don’t forget this includes the HOSPITAL BILL. 30% of a big hospital bill is huge.

Now it did have a cap on out of pocket expenses for a year, something around $5,000, although I hasten to add I’ve been hearing stories that the cap, a requirement of Obamacare as it passed, might be removed. Those caps are important, more on this later.

So this fellow has to pay $1200 a year for the premium, after his subsidy runs out, I get this. BUT he will have to pay almost $5,000 regardless of the subsidy, before he gets any coverage!

My husband and I both had a heatlh crisis one year with him going into the hospital for almost two months...a brain infection of all things. I had a heart bypass.

The hospitals bills for both of us came to half a million, I’m not making this up.

Our health insurance at the time was through husband’s job, a private insurer, which wasn’t the best insurance in the world; it had high deductibles and that sort of thing but it had the most wonderful cap on out of pocket expenses of around $3,500, which did go up for the couple of years later that we had the plan, but that cap was precious.

Whatever, I could sleep at night cause without that cap I’d have had to pay 20$ of that half million hospital bill (our copay at the time was 20%) which would have been $100,000, figure it out, and they would have made me pay it.

This thing is going to destroy our economy and cause the dumb people who think this thing is free to riot in the streets.

As an added editorial, then I shall shut up, this is why the House Repubs did the right thing. They are on record as fighting this thing tooth and nail and no media screeching is ever going to overcome the horrible way all of us are going to suffer for this.

The Repubs will be the heroes, except the RINOS of course.

Oh people, people. Don't get your panties in a bunch. God tells us in the book of Revelation 9:21, "Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."
The word sorceries comes from the Greek word pharmakeia which is the root word in English for the word pharmaceutical (Oh I know. Some egghead will try to twist and spin this reality but the point's made.). We're NOT going to be able to get away from obamacare and what it morphs into. The people of this nation are unwilling to repent and to turn away from evil. Isaiah speaks of this time and the sorceries of this time as well.
God promises in 2 Chronicles 7:14 to heal our land if we will just repent - "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." Problem is His people are afraid to manifest who and what they are.
They sit on their laurels and figure that God is speaking of some other people and some other land and some other generation, not open to accept that the United States of America is the ONLY country in the history of man that was founded on Christian principles. The US is the ONLY country that's ever called herself a "Christian" nation. And NOW this nation is denying this fact. Like it or not Jesus Christ IS God. Christians are not only "His" people. We are His bride.

The end is near. A remnant of us have trimmed our lamps, stood fast in His lordship and awaited the days that are now upon us. If you are one of us you know of what I say.
The simpletons of the world are too lazy to fight the good fight. They are ashamed to call good good and evil evil. They find it easier to call good evil and evil good. As scripture says "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Their woes are just beginning. It would have been better for them had they never known the goodness of God and Christ.

Pass the popcorn. Things are going to get interesting.
