RNC building list of voters who lost insurance due to Obamacare
Washington Examiner ^ | 3/8/14

Posted on 03/08/2014 2:56:54 PM PST by Liz

RNC data operatives will build a list of millions of Americans who lost coverage due to Obamacare .... "It’s early in the process because cancellations are still taking place. We’ve brought in top engineers from LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Facebook to work on the data projects,” RNC Chair Rance Priebus told the Washington Examiner.

The Obamacare cancellations stand to play a crucial role in 2014. In Colorado, almost 250,000 people received cancellation notices. Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo decided to challenge incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Udall .....after Udall and his office pressed local officials about the validity of the figures, amid reports that Udall operatives threatened state officials. “Sen. Udall says our numbers were wrong,” a Nov. 14 email by Jo Donlin, director of external affairs for the state insurance division, sent to the Denver Post. “They are not wrong. Cancellation notices affected 249,199 people.

ANOTHER VOTE-CRAZED DEMOCRAT;
GOES BALLISTIC AT THE PROSPECT OF LOSING GOVT POWER

Democrat specimen Sen. Mark Udall, facing a tough reelection this year, was nailed on tape echoing the "keep your plan" Big Lie, b/c some 330,000 Coloradans received the cancelation notices he promised they wouldn’t.

Specimen Udall’s crazed response was to lean on state insurance regulators to change their numbers by changing their vocabulary. He argued plans shouldn’t be counted as canceled if a person was eligible to buy a pricier ACA compliant plan.

The insurance regulator resisted Udall’s psychotic arguments.

Then things got interesting. CompleteColorado.com obtained and reported on internal state emails of insurance official, Jo Donlin, stating the deranged Udall wanted to “trash” the state’s numbers....

Fearing he'd lose his seat, vote-crazed Udall contacted her repeatedly, and when she refused to bend, she received a “very hostile” call from Udall’s chief of staff (maybe more like a "threat"?).

Udall’s obsessed interference prompted demands for more information and for an investigation into his twisted conduct.

Almost instantly, Colorado’s Department of Regulatory Affairs, which oversees the Division of Insurance, issued a statement claiming a "neutral and objective panel" investigated the matter and determined "Udall’s office did nothing improper and there was no intimidation."

(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)

NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS Absolving deranged Senator Udall of culpability is the exact same MO used right before NJ Sen Torricell was forced out of office.

Right. I'm sure all of those companies are trustworthy.

Dumb asses.

Democrats realize they are on a trajectory to lose the Senate in 2014 .....the little jerks making moves on the Godzillian O/Care monster rampaging through our healthcare system is one way braindead pols think they might save their sorry ***es......

The thought of losing their seats is giving Dems nightmares (and bad cases of crotch itch)..... never fear, vote-crazed Dems got endless vote fraud tricks up their sleeves.

Republicans need to be alert----Obama went on latino TV whining about "underdeserved" latinos and is conniving to get them enrolled.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID Latinos do not need to pay for O/Care---they can get free healthcare any frickin' time they want it.

Obama's "latino enrollment" scam is a ruse to get vote-crazed Dems illegals on the Dem rolls. NOTE WELL healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site. Tricky Democrats can easily plug in enrollees into their voter rolls.....and count them as votes on election day.

================================================

Here's how the tricky Dems are working the enrollment voter scam: O/Care's Oregon state exchange "accidentally" enrolled 4000 illegals

PASS THE WORD: This is a scam. Enrolling illegals was no accident. Obamacare web sites are also setup to accept voter registrations.

In Oregon vote-crazed Dems racked up 4000 votes (that we know of) to help them survive looming 2014 midterms).

BOOKMARK THIS Each state's Secretary of State is required to check into all cases of reported voter fraud. Course a Dem won't. But many states have Repub Secy's of State. They should be notified about illegals registering via O/Care.....and fraudulently plugged into Democrat voter rolls.

Great, but it is absolutely imperative to include what their alternative turned out to be, such as higher premiums, higher deductibles, etc. Otherwise the Ezekiel Emanuels of the left will simply say stuff like, “they didn’t lose anything, they’re now insured.”

Feet on the ground and massive phone surveying.

FASHION NOTE: WHAT WELL-DRESSED LOCK-
STEPPING DEMOCRATS ARE WEARING
THIS ELECTION SEASON

DNC-ISSUE BROWN SHIRTS.

=========================================

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE---O/Care became law on an historic straight party-line Democrat vote.

Obamacare was preceded by "Hillarycare"----which went down in flames----and led to a loss of 54 Democrat House seats in 1994).

In 2009, retiring Arkansas Democrat Rep. Marion Berry presciently warned that ObamaCare was setting up the Democrats for a huge 2010 midterms defeat

Ego-driven Obama scoffed at such concerns. Berry said the president told him, “Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.”

END GAME Republicans went on to win 63 House seats and six Senate seats. It was the largest swing in the House since 1938. Looks like the "difference" was Obama (/snix).

Obamacare is a gift to pubbies that keeps on giving.

Think they'll ever repeal it? Never, even if they take the senate.

This is the sort of cold political calculation, that puts the personal interests of a few hundred DC politicians ahead of the lives and welfare of hundreds of millions that should drive every Freeper to support and promote reform through an Article V state amendment convention.

I don’t get too involved in political discussions but hearing Reid call people liars the other day infuriated me.

Time for him to retire.

Sap-happy Democrats stupidly voted for Obamacare---an historic policy blunder of Ceausescuian proportions. Obamacare targets classes of "useless Americans" who are considered to be unfit to live in Obama's utopian "progressive society" (a society led by a "tolerant and compassionate" permanent Democratic majority).

=======================================================

A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO DEMOCRATS: You voted for all of this: (1) throwing Americans off affordable health plans, (2) burdening Americans w/ ruinous deductibles, (3) nationalizing 1/16 of the US economy, (4) abandoning the elderly and the chronically ill, (5) empowering IPAB's (Death Panels),(6) decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth, and, (7) drug rationing.

REMEMBER THIS DEMOCRATS? As far back as 2008, at the Democrat presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama smilingly campaigned on the glories of his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"

QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.

LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930- 40's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dems marched in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

==================================================

Ominous cogs in the Democrats' Obamacare meat grinder----the inexorable forcing of Grandma/pa onto Medicaid--(like cattle herded single-file onto the narrow ramp---knowing the bolt is coming---but not able to do a thing about it). Medicaid conveniently groups together the sick and elderly---as Obama's IPAB board of radicals sit in judgment. Boobamba's Orwellian-speak---the progressive way of saying "Obamacare keeps costs down."

The infamous "Death Panels---are alive and well----but they're not called death panels......for obvious reasons. The treacherous Obama euphemistically calls his death panel "I-PAB----Individual Payment Advisory Board." I-PAB decides what to pay and who to pay---thus rationing medical care to sick oldsters. Obamacare "allows" states to expand their Medicaid recipients pool. Under Obamacare, Washington now covers about 1/2 the cost of Medicaid enrollees.

==================================================

Obamacare's IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board) is the first agency of the “fifth branch” of govt.

1) It will make all important health care decisions by authorizing payment or not.
2) It is not funded by Congress and cannot have its budget reviewed or changed.
3) Its membership cannot be changed by future Presidents,
4) It cannot be repealed by Congress, except for a six month window in 2017.
5) Its decisions are not subject to judicial review.
6) It is not authorized by the Constitution, and is therefore immune to Constitutional processes.

==================================================

Why is Obamacre herding seniors WITH ASSETS onto Medicaid---a program structured for the poor? Can you say redistribution of wealth? Herding the elderly with assets into Medicaid has ominous consequences that are intriguing to the left. B/c assets, perhaps a home owned free and clear, securities, annuities, investment property, can be seized to pay for govt treatment.

Thus intergenerational transfers of wealth (a longtime progressive bugaboo)----are decimated (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you).

Many Freepers have wondered how Harry Reid (Dim-Nev) ever got elected.

After he made the “liar” comment, betcha many Nevada voters are asking the same question.

Not only do they need to target those who lost their insurance, they need to target the much bigger number that will lose it when the delayed employer mandate kicks in.

Not only do they need to target those who got cancelled, to date, the RNC needs to target the much bigger numbers.....exploding when the delayed employer mandate kicks in.

Good point.....even though Boobamba's efforts to mitigate the destruction are pretty much like blowing in the wind.

BACKSTORY In Dec 2013, Obama tried a federal and state regulatory fixit --- one of 35 Obama's unilateral "administrative fixes"---this one aimed at allowing individuals to remain enrolled in plans that had been cancelled--cancelled b/c of Obama's signature healthcare mandates considered them sub-standard.

Obama announced the "fix" after a storm of criticism over his broken promises that anybody who liked their plan could keep it.

REMEMBER THIS? Paranoid about his wife's chances in 2016, Bill Clinton weighed in----publicly calling on Obama to "honor the commitment he made" that people should be able to keep their health care plans.

But only State Insurance Commissioners have the power to reinstate cancelled plans----and they said they could not fix it. Once a plan is cancelled, it's gone forever.

=========================================

INCONVENIENT FACTOID Dems are saddled w/ a huge paper trail of false "keep it" promises and are frantic to restore affordable plans (canceled by their historic party-line votes for the O/Care edict).

===========================================

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO DEMOCRATS: You can't undo ALL of the O/Care collateral damage you created.

(1) throwing Americans off affordable health plans,

(2) burdening Americans w/ ruinous deductibles,

(3) nationalizing 1/6 of the US economy,

(4) abandoning the elderly and the chronically ill,

(5) empowering IPAB's (Death Panels),

(6) decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth,

(7) pulling $750 MILLION out of Medicare,

(8) drug rationing for seniors,

(9) new taxes on medical devices........and so on.

====================================================

INCONVENIENT FACTOIDS

<><> Sen Mike Enzi (R-Wyo) introed a bill in 2010 to allow Americans to keep their plans----E-V-E-R-Y Democrat voted against it.

<><> The Repub-controlled house has passed over 30 different bills amending or replacing O/Care. Sen Harry Reid is the Democrat roadblock who allows O/Care to stand untouched. No bills to change it are allowed before the Senate.

==============================================

STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE : In 2009, retiring Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry presciently warned that ObamaCare was setting up Democrats for a huge 2010 midterm defeat; just as “HillaryCare” led to Democrat loss of 54 House seats in 1994.

Obama scoffed at such concerns; he told Berry, “Well, the big difference here is you’ve got me.”

SO MUCH FOR O'S EGOTISM 2010 Republicans went on to win 63 House seats and six Senate seats.....the largest swing to Repubs in the House since 1938.

So Obama was right---the difference was him. ROTFL.

The Godzillian rampage connected to O/Care keeps terrorizing the not-amused American electorate.

On to 2014.

Obamacare has never polled a majority.

Over half of the states opposed it in court.

Rats up for reelection run away from it.

The drive-by media refuse to cover its horrors.

The GOP House continues to fund it.

Obama has unconstitutionally repealed over a dozen sections of it.

Several years after enactment, it is still despised.

Obamacare is literally killing Americans.

What is the GOP response? Fight it? No. Collect a database of abused citizens.

This is the party you support?

But it’s not the ones hurt who need convincing, it’s those who may have slipped by without personal damage. Emanuel and his ilk only have to scream louder to convince many people.
