  • The shocking secret behind ObamaCare enrollment numbers...(No shock to anyone here!)

    Barack Obama wants you to know he enrolled 7.5 million Americans through ObamaCare’s health insurance Exchanges. What he doesn’t want you to know is how. Federal courts may soon rule that President Obama induced the majority of those enrollees to enroll by offering them taxpayer dollars he has no legal authority to spend. If the courts put a stop to that unauthorized spending, a majority of Exchange enrollees would suddenly face the full cost of ObamaCare coverage, and enrollments would plummet.

    ynn Engelman still has no idea whether her doctors in Contra Costa County will be on her new health care plan -- and neither, she says, do her doctors. Capitola resident Kathryn Johnson has already paid the first month's bill for her new policy through the state's new health insurance exchange, but she just received a letter telling her she hasn't signed up for a plan. And in San Leandro, Linda Entrikin is one of 900,000 Californians suffering from whiplash after the Obama administration's surprise announcement Thursday that people whose insurance plans have been canceled can replace them with cheap,...
  • If they really wanted to fix the "Pre-existing condition" issue ~ Vanity

    10/30/2013 11:14:14 AM PDT · by GraceG · 18 replies
    Okay the "Dim wit Dims" have been using "Pre-Existing conditions" as their main "Tour de force" argument for WHY we supposedly need health care reform. Suppose we accept this argument as valid, I know I am going off on a crazy socialist tangent here, but assume we actually want to solve the problem using the socialist "We know better than thou" tool box... Why is god's heaven would you need to write a bazilluion pages of regulation to even solve this issue? They could easily "solve" this issue by writing a law that is a few sentences long. Something Like...

    Thinking he might need surgery to fix a bad case of diverticulitis, Brock Lesnar postponed a fight to defend his Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title. If you know who Lesnar is you have one of two opinion of him probably. You either think he is an egotistical maniac, and you wish someone would come along and shut him up, or you thought he was maybe the greatest all around fighter to ever grace the sport of ultimate fighting. Well, Brock was not just unable to train for the defense of his title he was considering the reality that he...

    ( – Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) says he is “not aware” of the Constitution giving Congress the authority to make individuals purchase health insurance, as the health care bills in both the House and Senate require. When asked whether the Constitution gives Congress the authority to make Americans buy health insurance, Sen. Akaka said: “I’m not aware of that, let me put it that way. But what we’re trying to do is to provide for people who have needs and that’s where the accessibility comes in, and one of the goals that we’re trying to present here is to...

    ( – If the Senate approves the health-care package passed by the Senate Finance Committee, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will determine the meaning of common medical and health insurance terms such as “hospitalization,” "physician services," “premium,” "prescription drug coverage," “deductible,” and “emergency room care.” The provision giving the HHS secretary this power appears on pages 256 and 257 of the Finance Committee’s gargantuan health-care reform bill, which totals just over 1,500 pages. “The Secretary of Health and Human Services,” says the bill, “shall, by regulations, provide for the development of standards for the definitions of terms used...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | SEPTEMBER 11, 2009
    The thing about the bully pulpit is that Presidents can make the most fantastic claims and it takes days to sort the reality from the myths. So as a public service, let's try to navigate the, er, remarkable Medicare discussion that President Obama delivered on Wednesday. It isn't easy. Mr. Obama began by depicting a crisis in the entitlement state, noting that "our health-care system is placing an unsustainable burden on taxpayers," especially Medicare. Unless we find a way to cauterize this fiscal hemorrhage, "we will eventually be spending more on Medicare than every other government program combined. Put simply,...

    On a Thursday night Republican Governors Association conference call with conservative activists, moderated by Erick Erickson of RedState, Gov.

The 10th Amendment reads:

    AMERICAN.COM A Magazine of Ideas Eliminating the Public Option Is Not Enough By John S. HoffTuesday, September 1, 2009 Filed under: Health & Medicine, Government & Politics Even if the public option is excised, the healthcare bill still would impose a heavy blanket of federal regulation on every aspect of healthcare. The Obama administration has signaled that it may be willing to forgo creation of a federal government insurance plan (the so-called “public option”) as part of its healthcare “reform.” This is far less of a concession than it appears.Even if the public option is excised, the healthcare bill under...

    Ask for Real Town Hall on Health Care! Remember, Republican Members need to hold town halls too. Far too many Republicans are ready to support a federal individual health insurance mandate (feds force everyone to buy health insurance). It seems innocuous, but this is all Congress needs to pass to get national health care into noted so aptly by MN State Sen. Linda Berglin in Sunday's Minneapolis Star Tribune (8/16/09) - see para. 13. Sen. Amy Klobuchar - 612-727-5220 - ask for a REAL town hall, not her planned, no face-to-face tele-conference. Where's her courage? Sen. Al Franken -...

    "...The findings of a survey conducted by Doctor magazine sparked a fierce row last night, with the British Medical Association and campaign groups describing the recommendations from family and hospital doctors as "out­rageous" and "disgraceful". About one in 10 hospitals already deny some surgery to obese patients and smokers, with restrictions most common in hospitals battling debt. Managers defend the policies because of the higher risk of complications on the operating table for unfit patients. But critics believe that patients are being denied care simply to save money."
