What else could possibly be expected from the LIAR in chief and his minions?
Drudge has a story up that by 2016 the cheapest family policy available will cost $20K.
The fine for not buying one is $2400.
You can see where this is going.
All lies. But we told them so.
This is “turning out to FALSE” only to those who were foolish/stupid enough to believe it in the first place.
Those who, like me, knew this was a load of crap from the get-go, have merely been waiting for this to come out.
The sad thing is, it truly STINKS to be proven right, doesn’t it?
Remember the ‘Government Rule of 10’ : Every government estimate will be off by a factor of 10.
If they predict something will gost A Billion Dollars, it will end up costing 10 Billion.
If they say it will take one year, it will be done in 10 years.
Obamacare is just more Cloward-Piven strategery written by the insurance lobby to whip the slaves (american taxpayers)
Is there ANYTHING in that law that is not more cynical or more insincere than any similar measure in the past?
Even the very name is a study in oxymorons. The patients are not protected, and the care, where any is made available at all, is far less than affordable. Mostly, the law depends on denial of services, and applying taxes where none existed before.
But we have it on good authority that this measure, being about taxes and not about delivery of medical care, is therefore Constitutional.
How can a couple with three children making $120,000 a year afford to spend $20,000 on healthcare insurance (the Bronze policy) each year? How do they save for retirement, save for their kids’ education, pay their bills, pay their taxes?
What kind of life is that?
Why don’t the gutless creeps in congress just refuse to fund the damn thing???
In 2010 the IMF told Greece that one condition of getting a bailout was to privatize the Greek health care system.
Misleading five years of the Obama norm.
The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.
Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30,” she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”
“Very good,” said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next:
“I sold magazines,” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”
“Very good, Jenny,” said the teacher.
Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath...
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467” he said.”$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”
“Toothbrushes,” said Little Johnny.
“Toothbrushes!” echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner in town,” said Little Johnny, “I set up a Chip & Dip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample. They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog crap!”
Then I would say, “It is dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the government approach of giving you something shitty for free, and then making you pay to get the taste out of your mouth.”
In the last 5 years only one person had the courage to speak the truth. That was the guy who told Obama. “YOU LIE”.
Until lies are called what they are and people are taken to the woodshed for lies, things will keep going downhill.
This misleading, or He misspoke claptrap, is a cowardly way to point out a bald faced lie.
What we're not going to hear from Obama guard dog Fx News about Obamacare is the following. Regardless that Chief Justice Roberts found Obamacare constitutional with respect to Congresss power to lay taxes, perhaps you will find it disturbing, as I have, that the Court had previously clarified that the states have never granted Congress the constitutional authority to address intrastate public healthcare issues.
More specifically, regardless that Justice Roberts referenced the Gibbons v. Ogden case in the Obamacare opinion, he seemingly ignored two key statements in the Gibbons opinion which clearly indicate, imo, that Congress has no constitutional authority to make legislation of any kind regulating public healthcare.
"State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress (emphases added)." --Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Chief Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
In other words, Congress cannot make laws to lay taxes or establish penalties in the name of intrastate public healthcare any more than it can make laws regulating 1st Amendment protected religious expression and freedom of press imo.
Here's two more excerpts from Supreme Court case opinions which likewise indicate that Congress has no constitutional authority to make laws regulating intrastate healthcare. Note that Justice Barbour referenced the above excerpt from Gibbons in New York v. Miln, expanding it as follows.
"Inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws of every description, as well as laws for regulating the internal commerce of a state and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c., are component parts of this mass." --Justice Barbour, New York v. Miln, 1837.
And before Constitution-ignoring FDR nuked the Supreme Court with activist justices, Constitution-respecting justices had again emphasized that Congress has no business sticking its big nose into intrastate medical practice.
Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously (emphasis added) beyond the power of Congress. Linder v. United States, 1925.
And the low-information voters will eat it up, blame Repubs, and the "media" will turn their soft-glow "halo" lights on Zero from above while he beatifies himself and spews venom on conservatives.
This stuff is too easy to predict.
