  • Trump Needs to Re-Brand "Obamacare" With Some Killer Nickname That Really Fits.

    Crooked Hillary, Low-Energy Jeb, Very Fake News - we've all seen Trump masterfully take down his opponents by re-branding them with names like these. And yet for some reason, as it relates to one of his major campaign promises, he has not yet used this effective tool against the label of "Obamacare" - which arguably serves the purposes of the left by associating "caring" with not only that horrific law, but with all things "Obama". So I propose that Trump and folks on the right start calling this law some other fitting name. Here are a few of my own...

    The President has embraced the term, but Nancy Pelosi is still a bit annoyed by that people keep referring to The Affordable Care Act as "Obamacare." The Democratic Congresswoman chided a reporter who asked her if the new law will be a "winner or loser" for Democrats facing re-election in 2014."I believe it's a winner, and by the way, it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act,' it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act.' I know you didn't intend any compliment, or derogatory...it's called, 'The Affordable Care Act,'" she replied.Pelosi joked that she'd gladly tell President Obama the same thing before criticizing Republicans in...
  • Hilarious: MSNBC host likens word 'ObamaCare' to n-word

    MSNBC is the gift that keeps on giving, serving up propaganda intended to benefit the far left, but which in its absurdity repels people grounded in reality. Now, one of its hosts, Melissa Harris-Perry, already familiar to AT readers for her theater of the absurd political performance art, has played a race card so bizarre that it self-discredits.  Real Clear Politics provides a transcript and video here, where you can read and view the entire  thing, but here are some highlights: I want to talk today about a controversial word. It's a word that has been with us for...
  • U.S. schools face tough decisions on Obamacare benefits

    Hit by years of budget cuts, some U.S. public school boards are looking to avoid providing health benefits to substitute teachers and supporting staff under President Barack Obama's reform law, education officials say. According to the law, employers will have to offer health coverage to all full-time employees, defined as those who work an average of 30 or more hours per week each month, or else pay a fine starting in 2015. In Indiana's Fort Wayne Community Schools district, one of the state's largest, administrators reduced hours for 610 of its 4,050 employees, including substitute teachers and support staff, who...
  • IPAB, Obamacare’s Super-Legislature [It’s even worse than you thought.]

    National Review ^ | 15 June 2010 | Michael F. Cannon & Diane Cohen
    The individual mandate isn’t Obamacare’s only unconstitutional provision, or even its most unconstitutional provision. That distinction belongs to the Independent Payment Advisory Board. A heretofore unreported feature of this super-legislature makes it even more authoritarian and dangerous than anyone knew. IPAB consists of up to 15 unelected government “experts.” Its stated purpose is to restrain Medicare spending. If projected spending exceeds certain targets, Obamacare requires IPAB to issue “legislative proposals” to reduce future spending. Those proposals could include drastic cuts that jeopardize seniors’ access to care, leading some critics to label IPAB a “death panel.” But the really dangerous part...
  • The Small Error That Could Ruin Dem's Health Care Efforts

    Business Insider ^ | 11/30/10 | Brian Beutler
    Conservative foes of the Affordable Care Act want the federal courts to smother the new health care law in its crib. They've argued that Democrats failed to erect the proper safeguards to protect the legislation from being stricken down entirely by the courts. And when a Virginia district court judge rules in the coming days on the Constitutionality of the law's insurance mandate, he'll also have to decide whether none, some, or all of the law must go with it. The obscure term of art here is "severability." Quite often, legislators include what's known as a "severability clause" in their...

    Director Blue ^ | April 16th | Doug Ross
    Nancy Pelosi wasn't kidding when she said, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." Buried deep within the the Democrat health care bill is a secret payoff to immigrants that defies American traditions and was heretofore undisclosed. Hidden within the 2,400-page DemCare legislation is a bullet to the head of the longstanding "public charge" doctrine. The doctrine states that "no alien can be allowed into the United States if he is going to become a burden on the US taxpayer upon entry -- a public charge." ... By granting amnesty for...

    The landmark vote on health care by the House of Representatives March 21 affirms The United Methodist Church’s Social Principles that declares health care is a “basic human right,” the top executive of the denomination’s social action agency said. "For decades, the General Board of Church and Society has worked alongside thousands of United Methodists to achieve health care for all in the U.S.," said Jim Winkler, chief executive of the United Methodist Board of Church and Society. "This vote brings us closer to that reality." The majority of United Methodist lawmakers in the House voted against the plan. However,...
  • Your right to choose vitamins and other supplements could end this year (ALERT)

    Your right to choose your vitamin, mineral and other supplements may end in June-August of this year (2005). After that U.S. supplements will be defined and controlled by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS (Food Code) is setting the supplement standards for all countries in the WTO. They will be enforced by the WTO and will over ride U.S. laws. The U.S. President and Congress agreed to this take-over when the WTO Treaty was signed. Violations are punished by WTO trade sanctions. CODEX drastically restricts vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements. CODEX...

    All United States citizens may be required to carry a biometric I.D. card! That's not Orwell's Big Brother speaking. Rather Democrat Chuck Schumer (D- New York), and Republican Lindsay Graham (R- South Carolina) have devised new legislation to mandate that every worker carry a government I.D. card to prove his citizenship. The card must be carried every day and may be checked by employers and any governmental authority upon request. All U.S. citizens would be required to carry an ID cards according to this plan. It's meant to keep companies from hiring illegal immigrants. No matter where you apply for...

    Been wanting to make another Pelosi zero dollar piece and so here's the latest. Send her it and any of the others she's portrayed in. Make her day. Just getting under her skin (eww, bad mental image) will help. If it gets her madder, good. People make more mistakes when they are mad and taking things personally. Their pride gets in the way and they start making mistakes. Keep the pressure on, mail any of the zero artwork along with your letters and emails to your democrat congresspeople. Especially those who want to keep their jobs, especially those who have...

The crowd was civil, but not subservient. They didn’t buy any of his glib professorial answers. Here’s what Betty Dye, who posted it on YouTube, had to say: Congressman Price meeting with citizens at Cultural Center in Holly Sprigs NC Jan 23, 2010. None of his supporters showed up, just us. 5 Policeman ended up being called in to observe event, once again Conservatives had a peaceful debate with a progressive...

    St. Petersburg Times/Politifacts ^ | December 18th, 2009 | Angie Drobnic Holan
    Of all the falsehoods and distortions in the political discourse this year, one stood out from the rest. "Death panels." The claim set political debate afire when it was made in August, raising issues from the role of government in health care to the bounds of acceptable political discussion. In a nod to the way technology has transformed politics, the statement wasn't made in an interview or a television ad. Sarah Palin posted it on her Facebook page. Her assertion — that the government would set up boards to determine whether seniors and the disabled were worthy of care —...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Landmark health care legislation backed by President Barack Obama passed its sternest Senate test in the pre-dawn hours early Monday, overcoming Republican delaying tactics on a 60-40 vote that all but assures its passage by Christmas. "Let's make history," said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, shortly before the bill's supporters demonstrated their command of the Senate floor in an extraordinary holiday season showdown.

    On Tuesday, the Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb, citing an unnamed Senate aide, wrote that "the White House is now threatening to put Nebraska's Offutt Air Force Base on the BRAC list if Nelson doesn't fall into line." Translation: Goldfarb is reporting that, according to his source, the Obama administration is suggesting to Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska (left), who has been hesitant to support the Senate health care bill due to his concerns over abortion, that it will close the base if Nelson doesn't back the bill. It was, the source said, a "naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and...

    San Francisco health officials reported an alarming increase in new syphilis cases last year after years of declines. New syphilis cases rose 55.8 percent in 2008 over the previous year, San Francisco public health officials reported. The increase was significantly lower than the dramatic spikes reported early in the decade, when new infections increased 167 percent from 2001 to 2002. But last year's rise would seem to indicate an increase in unsafe sexual practices, which could lead to a rise in HIV infection rates.
