“And people in 1932 said this would never happen”

And sadly, that is EXACTLY where it is heading.
My Grandfather, who lived through those years in Germany, warned me to never think that it couldn’t happen here. Now, I’m watching it happen, and am basically powerless to stop it.

This is the liberal mindset that makes me sick. We are more special then other people, so help us out.

This has been the main topic on the local Austin talk shows this week. Some 0 bummer supporter called in and was upset her insurance had been cancelled. The one policy that was close was over 2 1/2 more expensive and had a %6000 deductible. No sympathy from me or most of the callers.

“We believe that the Act is good for health care, the economy, & the future of our nation. However, ACA options for middle income individuals ages 59 & 60 are unaffordable. We’re learning that many others are similarly affected. In that spirit we ask that you fix this, for all of our sakes,” he and Brothers wrote.

Translation: We're fine with you sticking it to everyone else, but can't you make an exception for us since we're loyal liberals and always support all idiotic liberal causes?

" The couple’s existing Kaiser plan was a good one.
Their new options were indeed more expensive, and the benefits didn’t seem any better.
They do not qualify for premium subsidies because they make more than four times the federal poverty level, though Hammack says not by much."

To blindsided liberal Obama worshipers:

How dare you say derogatory things about ObamaCare!
You are not praying to and praising Obama enough!
Be thankful your Marxist Democrat Party Man/Child God and Dear Leader allows you to keep your house, car and job. Don't you know Obama owns you?
Now be loyal Democrat Party members and Obama worshipers and suck it up and suffer in silence. Do it for Obama and his Democrats. And don't forget to die when Obama demands it. There are many Third Worlders waiting to replace you and your progeny.

I hope she writes back and tells them to shut up she won.

The Democrats had the ACA legislation written up before BHO2 was even nominated, much less elected.

He’s just a puppet, a front guy. Since he has been a con man his whole life, this gig in the White House has been simple. Beats working the streets of Jakarta as a male prostitute.

"Comment after the story sums it up: “Shorter version: He lied to our face. But we still support him. Now, how can we get other people to pay us a subsidy?”

Ain't that the truth. Typical self-centered, conniving leftists.

Certainly some liberals won’t be able to recalibrate their small, confused brains to make the clear determination that supporting Obamacare was a mistake... but in light of all these stories coming out lately, I remain hopeful that many will and we will see a political BLOODBATH in 2014.

“We’re not changing our views because of this situation, but it hurt to hear Obama saying, just the other day, that if our plan has been dropped it’s because it wasn’t any good, and our costs would go up only slightly,” he said.

Then stew in it, Rat!

“Kaiser Permanente has many other plans available.”

That is true. These whiners have been offered one. But all of the plans need to fulfill the mandates of Obamacare. ALL of the insurance plans do. And getting all of the bells and whistles costs more. And insurance companies being forced to insure high risk people (with all of the bells and whistles) will also raise the rates - on ALL of the plans.

That said, my provider, forced to discontinue my plan that I have had for years, rolled me over into another plan (higher premiums, higher deductibles, etc.) So I went on my state’s healthcare site to see what their plans were like. An estimated $200 a month more through the state, with an even higher deductible. So much for the “Affordable” care act. (Heh. Now I know they call it an “act”.)

No. As long as this gets them to vote conservative, if they plan to keep voting liberal, they can pound sound.

They probably haven’t heard a word of conservative news, they probably watch John Stewart, and CNN.

If you can’t get your message across to people, then there’s no hope in them adopting your ideals.

We have reasonable ideas, and thoughts. Problem is getting people to listen.

95% of the media is in the tank for Obama, they’ll be in the tank for Hillary in 2016. We need a way of getting conservative values across the line.

They shouldn’t be allowed to vote either. In fact, anyone receiving public assistance of any kind including ObamaCare subsidies should have to forfeit their privilege to vote.

We’ll see a bloodbath if McCain and his “gang of morons” don’t rescue Obama.

If the Repubs step in at this point, THEY will own it. Every dem campaign for the next 20 years will be focused on how the Repubs KILLED the greatest bill ever.

When your enemy is killing itself, step back.

When we retake the senate and WH, with conservatives, we can let executive orders fly, just like Obambi did. Then we can fix what is broken.

Until then, let the Dems own this fiasco. This is great campaign material for us. The GOPe want to save Obama’s hide, nothing more.

If we couldn’t kill it by not funding it, so be it. Now the dems are wanting to push it back until after their elections. Tough titty said the kitty. YOU WROTE IT, YOU DEAL WITH IT. Dems exclaimend over and over on talk shows how the left was irresponsible and were just being racist. Hmmm, now THEY want to postpone it a year. This will play well with independents who have some common sense.

I bet if we let the chips fall where they may, we will almost sweep elections. And it gives us such great talking points and sound bites. Imagine the commercials we can run.

Time to educate the Sheeple about socialism.

They still believe in Obama because their world view of “the government should help specific groups at other people’s expense” has not changed.

They could get sick, not be able to be treated due to Obamacare and that view would not change.

Pelosi won't say it to their face, but an Eric Stratton moment from Animal House is coming after the 62' 4 door Continental Convertible of Flounder was trashed, "Face it Flounder you ****ed up, you trusted us"...

But Pelosi is metaphorically saying "shut up and take it", that won't go well with many of these spoiled boomers....

They would never abandon their socialist God. The sacrifices they pay absolve them (in their own minds) of all sins.

Without a MAJOR repentance, revival and reformation of thoughts, attitudes, and character and a new fear of the Lord, we are lost. If a majority of people, or even a bare 50% of people in this country are lost, selfish, and worshipping the socialist God and believing in the socialist religion**, our country will continue electing godless, depraved, criminals who will use that socialist religion to continue to gain power for themselves.


** I define the Socialist religion as this:

IF I force others around me by law to pay for poor people’s healthcare, “save the planet” with green environmentalism, force others to give up their money to give EBT cards to welfare mamas, fight “racism” by forcing other people to hire minorities even when they aren’t qualified,

THEN I am absolved of my sins of unbelief, abortion, perversion, divorcing my husband or wife when a better deal comes along, abandoning my responsibilities as a father or mother, blasphemy, etc. and I am now a good person. I get to do whatever I want as long as I fight to make other people (mainly Christians and conservatives), to give up their time and money to fight the all the politically correct social evils.


Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
