Obama's "5 Percent" Con Job
National Review Online ^ | 11/18/2013 | Andrew McCarthy

Posted on 11/18/2013 5:23:29 AM PST by Reagan‹berAlles

Last Thursday, President Obama purported to undo the “Affordable” Care Act (ACA) mandates that he and congressional Democrats quite intentionally designed to force Americans off their health-insurance policies . . . notwithstanding the president’s promise, repeated over and over again since 2009, that Americans would be able to keep their health-insurance policies. In my weekend column, I argued that Obama’s latest unilateral diktat is lawless and transparently political. With each passing day, however, what becomes more breathtaking is the depth of systematic, calculated lying that went into the extensive — the criminal — Obamacare fraud.

Thanks, great article. So the employer market will also be cancelling policies. That is why he postponed the employer mandate until after the 2014 election.Quite honestly I think I would be more comfortable with the crackhead mayor of Toronto running the country rather than Obama.

OBAMACRE IS AN ILLEGAL LOTTERY
APPEARS HE FIXED THE OUTCOME---WITH HAND-PICKED WINNERS AND TARGETED LOSERS.

The following is an example of a Federal Statute defining a Lottery:According to 12 USCS § 25a, “lottery" includes any arrangement whereby three or more persons (the "participants") advance money or credit to another in exchange for the possibility or expectation that one or more but not all of the participants (the "winners") will receive by reason of their advances more than the amounts they have advanced, the identity of the winners being determined by any means which includes--

(A) a random selection;

(B) a game, race, or contest; or

(C) any record or tabulation of the result of one or more events in which any participant has no interest except for its bearing upon the possibility that he may become a winner.

NOTE: The illegality is decided by a state.

When he referred to Obamacare as the cure "for people for whom the system does not work," Obama exposed his assessment of a nation which he holds in complete comtempt.

Obama made clear he sees himself as the protector and savior of assorted losers: welfare dependents, poverty pimps, thieves and thugs, professional victims, and other ne'er do wells.....

Obama frequently ignores our laws---frequently issuing decrees, Executive Orders, and the like---bypassing the structure of law, and govt, that has made America great.

IT IS AN ARTICLE OF FAITH AMONG THESE GROUPS THAT ALL OF OUR LAWS, RULES AND REGS ARE CONSTRUCTED SOLELY TO SUBJUGATE THEM (intelligence, a work ethic, ambition, drive, honesty, has nothing to do with it).

Obama has been "lying-in-wait" to "punish" the working class---those w/ success and achievement---in favor of the stupid-loser classes.

It should be asserted loudly and repeatedly that the people being hurt by the implementation of Obamacare are

exactly the people that Obama WANTS TO HURT.

The employer market has already started cancelling.

For example 130,000 employer policies were just cancelled in Hawaiii...along with 30,000 individual policies.

Reports: Obama May Have Known Keep-Your-Plan Promise Untrue

Sunday, November 17, 2013 09:33 PM By: Greg Richter

More and more politicians and mainstream pundits accusing President Barack Obama of knowingly misleading the public on his keep-your-plan promise.

"Those assurances weren't slight exaggerations or innocent shadings of the truth," Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., said in the Republican radio address on Saturday. "They were statements that were fully vetted, coldly calculated, and carefully crafted to deceptively sell your health care plan to a trusting public. It was a political fraud echoed relentlessly by House and Senate Democrats who should be held accountable for the disastrous consequences of their grand deception."

“More and more politicians and mainstream pundits accusing President Barack Obama of knowingly misleading the public on his keep-your-plan promise. “

Agree, but they ALL knew it beforehand also... And that is what bothers me the most. Only a few actually Stood and did everything they could to try and Stop this Insanity, but there were many who know this and did everything they could to get us to shut up. I know their are power hungry all over (both DNC and GOP) but now its time to call them out, case in point john mclame... He has the never to attempt to pick up the Ted Cruz Torch and has yet to apologizes publicly for all the hateful things he has said...

.....assert loudly/repeatedly that the people being hurt are exactly the people that Obama WANTS TO HURT....

Right---cancellations of existing policies is NOT A GLITCH--NOT AN ERROR--NOT AN ACCIDENT. Cancellation of millions of polices is a FEATURE of Obamacare.

Heheh---but you just gotta rejoice that the Obo/Care connivers are THAT stupid....laughing up their sleeves as they connived to insert the cancellation clause---relying on the old standby---blaming someone else---especially the insurance companies they unreservedly despise.

But the stupids must be downing valium and vodka non-stop as we type---the lunkheads failed to factor in that Dems would take the fall at the polls---by the very people being "punished"----the voters.
