Don't worry bother. This government is going to buckle under the weight of it's own greed before next spring. Just watch.

I would suggest stockpiling ammo and food while you wait.

He’s been backhanding states like Texas and Arizona for years. Remember his callous comments during the Texas wildfires..”bet they believe in global warming now” or something to that effect. And who can forget the complete snub of where the Space shuttles would go. Nope, not Texas, not Houston where Mission Control is.Nope...New freaking York and Caleeefornia.

His strongarm Chicago thug tactics are way beyond their expiration date....

Don’t we have that already?

Obama could commit an execution style murder on the front lawn of the White House with 500 witnesses, and the press would refuse to report it... Law enforcement would refuse to take him into custody. The courts would punt to congress.

Insurance companies will be charged 3.5 percent of any premiums they sell through the federal exchanges, the department announced Friday. And insurers are likely to pass that surcharge on to clients, leaading to higher premiums.

If no one buys the federal exchange policies, then no one gets charged. We have to oppose socialized medicine every step of the way. That includes systematically under-withholding, so that the IRS cannot collect the fines between now and the time that this destructive bill is repealed.

This is going to be fun.

Completely changing a huge industry on whims of the Administration will be like creating workable prototype automobiles for the entire nation without knowing how automobiles are actually designed, manufactured, financed, marketed, or repaired.

Good luck, Bronco Bamma...you're gonna need it.

Unless I am wrong, Marxism/Socialism is about to get a lesson in reality (straight from the theories of the University professors into the marketplace).

Yeehaaaw!

The GOP needs to totally discredit the MSM first.

They can do it, if they wanted. Refuse interviews from hostile media. Answer leading questions with equally leading questions. Derision & sarcasm are powerful weapons.

This is war.

Remember Justice Thomas admitted the Supremes were "evading" the eligibility question. I'd say the "powers-that-be" support his views.

Yep. Here we go. The bastard is three weeks out of the election and now he is "going to lay down the law."

“It is important to keep in mind that any new fees to pay for the administration of exchanges will add to the cost of coverage, and that is why the focus needs to be on reducing administrative costs, streamlining operations, and avoiding regulatory duplication that will add complexity and increase costs," America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) said in a statement on the new rules.

Yea right, little bammy's administration is going to "streamlining operations, and avoiding regulatory duplication" ???

It is unlikely that the mentally defective lunatics that comprise his "administration" will even be able to get it off the ground at all.

But he will damn sure demand more and more money.

The "unlimited debt ceiling" demand suddenly becomes quite clear.

You can't be serious. There is plenty of dirt on this "Bastard". No one will report it or believe it. I am starting to think the only way this calamity could happen in the US is due to some dark unseen forces of the universe beyond our control or understanding.

Seems to me that this will soon be removed by President Obama. This is a tax on the lower-middle class and those who cannot get health insurance otherwise. The rich will get their insurance through work, the upper-middle class will get their insurance through work, the middle-middle class (for the most part) will get their insurance through work, the poor will get their insurance through Medicaid. That will only leave those who are not poor enough to qualify for Medicaid, who don't get health insurance through work and who don't have enough money to pay for their own health care on the open market. This is a 3.5% tax on the not-quite poor.

As soon as the press gets hold of this, they will run story after story of struggling families with children who have pre-existing conditions, so they can't afford health insurance and medicine. Just wait - - - oh, right, it's Obama. Nevermind.

Is there ANY law which states that all insurance MUST be purchased through an “exchange”?

I am not aware of any such language in Obamacare.

There has been plenty of dirt on this not-so-longer-closet-Muslim-usurper — the problem is we have reached a tipping point for stupid voters — we have more wanting “free stuff” — even if they could do better by having a decent economy that provides JOBS so they don’t need “free stuff.” It does not help in the least having evil “reporters” who refuse to cover news topics? Fast and Furious? *crickets* Benghazi? *ain’t no big thang* Nixon? Hang him for a 3rd rate burglary it’s not clear that he ordered. No one died at Watergate and he was forced out — this SOB isn’t even American, and he’s gotten an affirmative action pass his whole life. He is a vindictive, evil, SOB.

You’d think that if he really believed this supra-legal Federal exchange even had a basis in law to exist, he’d want to use it to draw the flies with honey, not vinegar.

Just a few days ago, I heard our Governor remark that the administration was ignoring the state officials responsible for crafting the healthcare programs. He elaborated on it; then said “it’s not right”. I don’t know what’s happened since. The “Obamafines” are a hoot.

67% of respondents polled were against Obamacare when it was voted on. Then, last November 6, they all (?) voted for its implementation.

This is good example of the insidiousness of obamacare, they can quickly enact new rules or make stuff up at any time to counter any attack or close up any unintended loopholes.

The law is a couple thousand pages of massive powers granted in very vague, wide-open language. When they come up with a new “rule” they can say “page 2105, section 9, p2, it says that such and such will be determined by the secretary...blah blah blah.” They can literally make *hit up and even if someone tries to fight it, they will lose after a long legal battle.

It should have been deemed unconstitutional on this fact alone! If a bill is so big that nobody including the supreme court will read the whole thing, how can anyone say without a doubt that its constitutional? We are ruled by stupid power mad people, they are no longer our servants.

Instead of requiring you to pay for X, which would be blatantly unconstitutional, they just tax you and buy X for you with the tax money. Clever ain’t it.

"under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department."

This is how the admin will get around any protest against obama care by the states. When all is said and done, obamacare will make the IRS rules and regs look like child's reading.

In five years this thing will be tens of thousands of pages of rules, and grow yearly by thousands of pages.
