Obamacare: They Shoot Horses Donīt They?
American Spectator ^ | 3/31/2014 | David Catron

Posted on 03/31/2014 5:27:59 AM PDT by rootin tootin

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. According to an Associated Press-GfK poll released last Friday, “President Barack Obama's health care law is languishing at its lowest level since passage of the landmark legislation four years ago, according to a new poll.” The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.”

When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care. Even now, they can’t see that Obamacare is a colossal failure.

Dem’s current line : ‘The six million+ who signed up on the exchanges show it is a huge success..’ they keep repeating.

Of course the beating they will take in November requires some explaining by them. (”Those old white people are mad”)

“The law of the land”. What a useless phrase.

Prohibition was once the “law of the land”, too. In fact, to square it with the rest of the wording of the
Constitution, it was actually written into an amendment and passed, by what today would be recognized as covert and underhanded methods, in a frenzied rush to curb what was considered to be a great force for evil, the easy access to alcoholic beverages.

The remedy, in that instance, was to pass an additional amendment, rescinding most of the original amendment, and leaving Prohibition as a local option to be dealt with by elections, and not Federal-level fiat.

Great mischief can result from even the most high-minded intentions. The false goal of “access to medical care for everybody” falls down when the element of coercion is introduced. Not everybody wants or needs the same access to delivery of medical services.

Why all the dealys, extensions, enrollment flim flam?

Turns out Obamacare is a vehicle for consolidating Dummycrat power.....even gave itself an untraceable multi-billion dollar slush fund.

The Untraceable $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget---truly govt fraud at its finest.

Egged on by Pelosi, no one in Congress told Americans about Section 4002---which mandates an $8B untraceable fund to "promote" Obamacare (apparently b/c Boobamba had so little confidence in his signature legislation).

In 2010 Taxpayers are extorted $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion........

Lock- stepping Democrats voted to nationalize 1/6 of the US economy ----

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

Q. Why all those O/Care delays and the recent enrolloment extension?

A. Because Sibelius is aiding and abetting Scumocrats to register enrollees as Democrats.....and helping Obama to wire- transfer tax dollars billions.

And remember, taxpayers....once in the hands of the Dummycrat criminal hordes, the tax billions are untraceable.

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

ACA SEC. 4002. PREVENTION AND PUBLIC HEALTH FUND.

It is the purpose of this section to establish a Prevention and Public Health Fund (referred to in this section as the ‘‘Fund’’), to be administered through the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Secretary, to provide for expanded and sustained national investment in prevention and public health programs to improve health and help restrain the rate of growth in private and public sector health care costs.

(b) FUNDING.—There are hereby authorized to be appropriated, and appropriated, to the Fund, out of any monies in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated—

(1) for fiscal year 2010, $500,000,000;
(2) for fiscal year 2011, $750,000,000;
(3) for fiscal year 2012, $1,000,000,000;

(c) USE OF FUND.—The Secretary shall transfer amounts in the Fund to accounts within the Department of Health and Human Services to increase funding, over the fiscal year 2008 level, for programs authorized by the Public Health Service Act, for prevention, wellness, and public health activities including prevention research and health screenings, such as the Community Transformation grant program, the Education and Outreach Campaign for Preventive Benefits, and immunization programs.

DUMMYCRATS GET A WAKE-UP CALL Going into Florida few weeks back, Democrats were marching in lockstep, saluting smartly to der leader. Demmies had uniformly decided not to utter a discouraging word about Obama/Care in deference to der leader---but, alas, the DNC pre-approved "fixit" plan flopped bigtime.

Democrats are feeling the sting of the electorate---- voters steaming from broken promises, the disastrous online rollout, hundreds of thousands of policy cancellations, sticker shock over coverage, ruinous deductibles, fleeing doctors, chaotic hospital networks, plus Obama's self-serving changes and delays in the law to make himself look good.

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

When Fla Republican David Jolly defeated Dummy Alex Sink, Dem leaders explained away the outcome by arguing that Republicans had a 13-point turnout advantage. But the Dum-Dums failed to mention that PELOSI WAS THE MAGIC VOTE-GETTER --- FOR REPUBLICANS

National Journal reported Repub strategists had measured which messages were most effectively persuading voters to turn in their ballots.

In Jolly's race, Repubs turned to a message—delivered across a variety of digital platforms and email.

The powerful message focused on urging Repubs to vote now or watch Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi move one step closer to reclaiming the speaker's gavel.

HHS will be reporting how many PAID enrollments in just 24 business hours.

And it will be as credible as the Unemployment Rate.

Matt Dowd is claiming that ObamaCare has not been an election issue and should NOT be an election issue. Does this “Republican” consultant actually have paying clients?

The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.”

OK, if you take out the 14% of the population that's black, and another 6% that's illegal - who the hell are the 6% that's left supporting Obamacare? Oh wait, I get it. That's the 6% of the population that are liberal elites who work for the government and will 'implement' the disaster... charming.

Those are the prison inmates the ObamaCare’s facilitators are signing up for Dear Leader's plan + low information voters.
