Obamacare’s Stunning Redistribution of Wealth (Vote buying is in full swing now)
frontpage ^ | 1/6/14 | j perazzo

Posted on 01/06/2014 11:32:40 AM PST by bestintxas

For all the attention Obamacare has drawn in recent weeks, few observers have noted that the law is having the unexpected, yet most welcome, effect of transforming scores of millions of Americans, virtually overnight, into generous benefactors of the less fortunate. A real-world example—representative of countless millions of similar situations—will make this crystal clear:

Let’s say that you are a healthy, hardworking 54-year-old single adult in San Francisco earning $45,960 per year—the income level at which federal Obamacare subsidies from your fellow taxpayers are no longer available to help you pay your monthly health-insurance premiums. As a San Francisco resident, you are permitted to choose from among 16 separate Obamacare-compliant insurance plans. Four of these are so-called “Bronze” plans, low-level policies whose average premium will cost you $453 per month, or $5,436 per year. In exchange for those premium payments, a Bronze plan will cover 60% of your medical expenses—that is, after you meet the $5,000 out-of-pocket annual deductible. For this priceless peace of mind, you can thank Obamacare—the Democratic Party’s gift to a grateful America.

Under Obama, you are a first class sucker for working hard.

Loaf and you get rewarded.

All this needs to be left to the states to decide.

Those states which want this(punishment of success) will see people in droves moving to states that do not wish it.

Being at the federal level keeps people from having the freedom to leave.

And make no mistake: this is all about freedom.

Is it wealth redistribution,
is it reparations,
or is it simply “get YT”?

Even Walter E. Williams just wrote in favor of separation.

History doesn't repeat itself... it rhymes. It has to rhyme rather than repeat, since things have changed a bit since 1917. It might be bloodier, it might not be, but the end result is the same.

So, Joe is still responsible for coughing up a $5k deducible before he gets a payout?

Where does he get that?

Well, out o his pocket, of course.

It gets way better than this writer describes. One of the primary intents of ObamaCare was subsidize the chronic health problems that members of the entitlement culture have put on themselves by several generations of idleness, chronic drug and alcohol abuse, STDs ect.

Once these people get into the health care system with their free health care system they will overwhelm and bankrupt our healthcare system with their pre existing conditions.

We are subsidizing the negative health impacts created by the failure of our failed social welfare policies.

54 years old and single in SF? Dude must be gay with multiple "roommates", if he can manage San Francisco on $46K a year.

The 2013 Index of Dependence on Government from the Heritage Foundation.

Now factor in the 8% or so of the population who receive paychecks from the government and, therefore, pay their taxes with money taken from other Americans. Tipping point? I think so.

How do you "prove" it if you are undocumented? And don't speak anything besides English?

How do you ‘prove’ to be gay? You could just be a hetero looking for some benefits.

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - their main job of Check and Balance is to “arrest” the perp by Impeaching the perp.

The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.

Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.

To those weak-kneeded summer soldier “patriots” I say “Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.”

In similar manner, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing, crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.

“Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - “ is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.

Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.

Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.

Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to “their best friends across the aisle,” to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!

House RINOs: Pretend that you are paid by taxpayers to fight to enforce the US Constitution.

Fight or go home, House RINOs.

FIGHT or we will send you home!

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

_________________________

The RINO Establishment has been, is now, and forever will be a spineless relic that is incapable of protecting the US Constitution.

Commie Obama came in 1-2009, and by 12-24-2009 he had Nationalized one sixth of the US Economy.

Now, four YEARS later, loyal RINO Establishment stalwarts estimate that it will take a generation (20-25 years) to undo what Commie Obama did in eleven MONTHS.

What does it take for the Loyalist RINOs to draw a line in the sand?

As for concern about “loss of political capital” and other Leftstream Media manipulating tactics, when in the next 20 to 25 years would be a good time for y’all to consider to begin to commence thinking about draining the swamp full of Leftstream Media “alligators?”

There are more of us than there are of them, so grow a pair and FIGHT the Left Stream Media!

Remember this: Commie Obama is counting on never being held accountable for his violations of the US Constitution.

BTW, Boehner and McConnell have done their best to not hold Commie Obama accountable for 4 years.

Thus, support for the RINO Establishment is to continue to endorse the Boehner-McConnell protection from accountability plan for Commie Obama.

Gay? I dunno—my post was in response to saying one was illegal, since they get benefits without insurance.
