NEW YORK'S CULTURAL ELITE BLINDSIDED BY OBAMACARE
breitbart.com ^ | 14 Dec 2013 | JOHN NOLTE

Posted on 12/17/2013 7:10:39 PM PST by dontreadthis

If there is at least one benefit of ObamaCare it is watching those who supported nationalizing the purchase of mandated health insurance get their comeuppance. The New York Times reports that "many in New York’s professional and cultural elite" who supported Obama and ObamaCare, and carved themselves out a sweet little health insurance pool "to avoid the sky-high rates in New York’s individual insurance market," are now out in the cold with the rest of us...

They think all they have to do is “care” and then tell The Government to fix it, and it will be taken care of and there will be no copnsequences ...

As if The Government is some yhing that you input problems on one end and good solutions come out the out end.

But you get what typically comes out the other end when you feed something

Nice! I hope I get to hear these people wail when this becomes perfectly clear to them.

They will probably deny it and blame Bush and the Republicans like they always do.

this “caring” thing is also responsible for:
1. lack of embarrassment and lack of self-awareness as how stupid they look
2. inability to learn from their experiences

Gotta feel for these downtrodden NYers. Just goes to show be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. As a Christian I should say to quote Clinton,’I feel your pain’, but as an American redneck I am having a hard time with this one. All I can say is HaHaHaHaHa!

Merry Christmas! Especially to you elite New Yorkers.

Reading the comments in the original New York Times article, it’s evident that Obama and the Democrats are already in serious, serious trouble.

And right now is just the lull before the storm, because in early 2014, horror stories will start emerging about people with obama-cancelled insurance not being able to continue their chemotherapy, dialysis treatments, trauma patients being denied care at designated trauma centers and hospital emergency departments being swamped with people unable to see their doctor.

This will start happening in January, become a deluge in February, and turn into a tsunami of death by March 2014, at which time voters will start hunting Democrats down in the streets with pitchforks and dogs. And a well-deserved hunt it will be too, because people are going to die as obamacare sends our existing health care system into complete and total chaos.

All the Republicans need to do is twiddle their fingers until the Democrats BEG them to fix obamacare, at which point the Republicans need to carry through on their promises and repeal and replace it. And if the Republicans betray us and don’t do that, it is the end of the Republican Party.

Mr. K my Catholicism goes back to st Patrick

And I read most of what the popes write as well as the catechism and of course the gospel and scripture

And I grew up w Catholics that went to catholic in name only but in it to promote feminism Marxism whose husbands were the same but more than they were - happy with birth control a d abortion

And I gotta say:

Reading the latest letter from the pope outside of infallibility and outside the teaching of the church:

What you wrote here can be said of the church hierarchy way outside the teaching if the church. God bless then I know they mean well

Actually the petard was usually made of metal and pressed against the gates of a city or of a castle. It had a container of explosives, and because of the shape of the petard the force of the explosives was directed toward the gate thus forcing the gate open.

The words comes front he old French meaning to break wind.

They will comfort themselves by making believe it is the fault of the Republicans because they can NOT admit how incredibly STOOPIT and IGNANT they were to support Obamahose.

A slight expense, and a minor inconvenience at most for the elites.

We all know a little lubrication helps you get to the front of a queue - it's a common feature at nightclubs and restaurants downtown.

Regulation/rationing are a lot like prohibition - you can still get what you want if you get a little creative and maybe a little less moral.

I get a vision of a doctor's office with a bouncer in the front, waiting for the secret word. The rich will know it, you and I won't.

All Obama voters are wicked and stupid.

Wicked because they voted for a man who supports the killing of babies.

Stupid because they didn’t realize that a man who supports the killing of babies is also a LIAR.

The American people have become so dense that only a tsunami of death will wake them up. It’s about to happen.

You know how the Democrats ran against Hoover until the wretched public schools finally produced a generation that never heard of Hoover? Well, people are going to be telling their kids: The Democrats killed your father, your grandmother, your great-grandfather...for the next 100 years.

Blindsided? I think not. This bill has been part of the public record for three years now. They knew this was coming. They alone are responsible for their own ignorance of the most rudimentary of economic principles.

The best part about it is that it points out the intent to harm others.

Sheeperals want to think of themselves as “good people” for their advocacy, and they need this myth dispelled at every opportunity.

They knew this was coming.

Maybe, but probably not.

They were all wrapped up in their self-righteous advocacy for "helping the needy get healthcare". They didn't look at it beyond how they felt about themselves for supporting it.

And, as an added bonus, they got to consider themselves morally superior to those "racists" who only opposed it because of Obama's skin color.
