OBAMACARE PANTSED

There’s so much going on in the political world at this point in history. There are so many things to write about and I could easily spend all of my time writing political blog posts, but I do have other priorities with respect to the next couple of weeks of my life. Since I write about what I want to write about, I’ve chosen to write about the latest developments in Obamacare.

According to the website, hotair.com, Obamacare architect, Jonathan Gruber, who has forcefully insisted that the basis of the upcoming Supreme Court case, King vs. Burwell, was based only on a typo in the Affordable Care Act, was captured on camera insisting that the language in the ACA denying federal subsidies to states that do not elect to set up their own exchanges was by design.

Also according to Hot Air, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor later admitted that the law (Obamacare) was designed in a deceptive manner in order to promote the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office to score it in a manner conducive to passage. Gruber went on to say that the bill was written in a tortured way to make sure that the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If the CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill would die. Gruber went on to add that lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and can be quoted as saying, “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.

Of course, we’re now hearing that Gruber’s comments were at an academic conference where he claimed to be “speaking off the cuff.” He further said that he spoke inappropriately when he took credit for pulling the wool over the eyes of the American people in order to insure the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

So, Gruber is trying to do some damage control. Big Woo! When the American people were told if they liked their health insurance plan that they could keep their insurance plan, they were lied to. When the American people were told that if they liked their doctors, they could keep their doctors, they were lied to. When the American people were told that insurance premiums for the average family would go down approximately $2,500, they were lied to.

Obamacare was supposed to be great. All those pool souls who were never able to afford health insurance would now have access to quality healthcare. When ACA was signed into law, some bleeding heart liberals wept for joy. It was truly an emotional moment and a big turning point in our nation’s history. The uninsured would have insurance/access to healthcare, the American people would see their premiums drop, the deficit would be lowered, jobs would be created, and the economy would once again boom.

YEA RIGHT! A half decade later, many of us, including me are scared to death regarding the future of their healthcare. My investment portfolio has surely gone up with the rise in the stock market, but how much will my insurance premiums go up when I go off of my COBRA plan at the end of this year. Will it take the increase in my net worth just to provide myself with health insurance? I don’t know and I’m scared. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one. I’ve worked hard and I don’t feel that I should have to worry about health care. I don’t deserve any of this stress and neither do millions of Americans.

ACA was sold to us by a bunch of snake oil salesmen, also known as Democrats. We were told that this will make the quality of our lives better. This was implemented as a tool to enhance the lives of the American people. Of course, it’s none of the above.

The government is supposed to work for the American people, and as it says in the preamble of the United States constitution, promote the general welfare. The pieces legislation passed by Congress and signed into laws are supposed to make the lives of the majority of the American people better, aren’t they?

The fact that the implementers of ACA knew that they couldn’t get it passed except through secrecy, through lies, and through taking advantage of every legislative trick in the book should speak volumes to everyone that this law is poison, evil, and does not promote the general welfare of American citizens. But why would our elected officials who are supposed to be looking out for our best interests do something that’s going to hurt everyone and weaken the country as a whole? They’re supposed to be working for us, aren’t they?

The sole purpose of this law was not to enhance the lives of Americans, much less provide much needed access to healthcare for those uninsured; instead, its purpose is to further expand the federal government and increase the dependency of Americans on the federal government. With ACA, the federal government has snatched up one-sixth of the nation’s economy and nationalized it. It was never intended to enhance our lives or to provide for those poor souls who don’t have access to health care; it is about further government intrusion into our lives and taking control of as many aspects of our lives as possible.

Just like the rogue regimes of Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, China, Iran, and more; the government has intentionally harmed its citizens with the ACA and knows exactly what it’s doing. The United States of America has its own Axis of Evil, make no mistake about it. America’s Axis of Evil includes Barak Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. There; I’ve said it. It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Nancy Pelosi’s power has been greatly diminished and Harry Reid’s power will soon go the way of Ms. Pelosi’s. We will have Barak Obama, though. As a result, the next two years are going to be very important ones and will surely determine whether we can reverse the trends of the past six years and take our country back or whether the United States of America, land of the free and home of the brave, be only a fading memory.

NOW COME THE RESPONSIBILITIES

No sooner than the last votes were counted and the results were in from the November 4, 2014 mid-term elections, the current president of the United States let everyone know that he doesn’t give a rip about the United States of America nor does he give a rip about the citizens of the United States of America. His purpose as the president of the United States is to take this country down, to destroy this country. Yes, I said destroy this country. His intent was never to make this country more prosperous.

How can I possibly say this, you may ask? Well, just look at the policies that he and his Democrat henchmen have crammed down our throats. Obamacare is certainly not making America a more prosperous nation. People are going to be paying substantially more for health care and get less. While the stock market is up and my portfolio is a little bigger, it’s probably going to take that increase in my wealth to pay for my health insurance. Of course having to pay more for health insurance is going to make it necessary that I cut back on other things like going out to eat, taking trips, and going to concerts, etc. The restaurants won’t take in as much money; the hotels won’t take in as much money, and so on. It will have a trickledown effect.  When millions of people are in the same boat, this will certainly affect our economy. Furthermore, granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are breaking the law just by being in this country illegally will make certain areas very dangerous to live in, drive through, and work in. Furthermore, these folks will be competing with real American citizens for jobs. Not everybody will be able to get a job, thus, increasing amounts will be distributed for unemployment, welfare, food stamps, healthcare, etc. I could write a lot more, but won’t because the above is not the purpose of this post. The above is to demonstrate how the current president hates the United States of America and its citizens.

I heard someone on the news earlier say that what just happened to the current president hasn’t sunk in yet. Well, I disagree. I believe that the current president knows just what has happened to him. He is trying to minimize it by saying that because voter turnout was low and many in his base failed to make the effort to vote, that the American people still love him and his policies. I wonder who came up with that spin?

In addition to his life-long hatred of Republicans, he is also mad and Senate and House Democrats who were up for re-election and tried to distance themselves from him as they campaigned for re-election. Furthermore, he is angry at his base that didn’t bother to vote. So, this president is very angry and the United States of America.

Like I said in my previous post, this president didn’t lose his pen nor his phone and I have no doubt that he will continue to implement toxic policies via executive orders just to spite everyone. If there are any of you out there who believe that this president is going to make an effort to work with Congress , I have some swamp land in Louisiana that you might be interested in.  He’s going to veto every piece of legislation that is sent to him. Perhaps with a few pieces, sixty-seven votes might be garnered in the Senate to override a presidential veto, but that’s going to be difficult.

The president has never taken responsibility for his mistakes, always blaming them on someone else; and this is not going to change either. Everything will be the fault of the Republicans and the press will still be in lockstep with this president all the way.

One might say that I’m upset with the election results. I most certainly am not. I’m ecstatic about the results. My prayers were answered. But we have to realize that just because Republicans/conservatives have been elected doesn’t mean that we, as private citizens can sit back and say, “Okay, the Republicans are in the majority, our country is saved.” We should all take some actions to combat what is going to be said by this president, by Nancy Pelosi, by Harry Reid, by prominent liberals, and by the press. We’re going to have to take on arguments and present our side in a respectable manner. One of the things that we all can do is visit some of these liberal websites such as salon.com, slate.com, motherjones.com, huffingtonpost.com, etc. and post comments. I know most of these sites will make you create a username, password, and give them your email address. Do it! If you don’t want to give them your main email address and I suggest that you don’t, get a freebie email address from Google, Yahoo, or some other entity that offers free emails. That’s what I intend to do. When taking on liberals, it has been my experience that they don’t read what you write and start calling you names and accusing you of things that don’t even relate to what you are posting. DON’T PUT UP WITH THAT! Tell them that you will be happy to have a reasonable online conversation with them, but you won’t put up with their shrill antics. You’re much too good for that.

I hope each and every one of you will consider taking actions such as the one that I have suggested above. And by all means, please don’t stop praying for our country. All gifts come from our Heavenly Father. Without him, none of us are capable of anything.

CHANGING PHILOSOPHY OF WORK – PART TWO

Earlier this year, House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi said that ObamaCare facilitates the type of “liberation” that the Founding Fathers had in mind because it allows you to quit your job and become a photographer or a writer or a musician or whatever because you will have healthcare and no longer be job locked. Now that’s a new one, “job locked.” Almost as good as “sucks less.” In other words, Pelosi is saying that you can do something else with your life and not worked about health care.

Just when you think that it can’t get any worse in the “United Socialist States of America,” it does. This less than 300 year old country became great because of hard work, perseverance, and a desire for a better life. Did everyone always love their job? Of course not! Do all of us always love our current jobs? Of course not! Are there folks out there who hate getting up and going to work at their jobs? Of course! There have certainly been times in my life that I’ve hated my job. But you do it. You go to work because you have to provide for your needs and perhaps for the needs of others. You need that paycheck and the health insurance is nice.

What if we all did what the House Minority Leader is suggesting? We’d all be making less money and therefore paying less in taxes and be more dependent on the government. Ahh, that’s it, more dependent on the government. That’s what it’s all about isn’t it. So the federal government is now telling us that we shouldn’t have to work at jobs we hate, just drop out and follow your dreams and we’ve got your back.

While we’re pursuing our dreams and paying less taxes, who is filling in that revenue gap? The rich, of course! Yea, let’s just soak the rich. They can afford it. Besides they’re the ones who got rich by giving us those lousy stinking job things that were making us miserable. So, all of us previously job locked folks have quit our jobs and started pursuing our dreams, resulting in the rich not being able to get people to come to work for them. The rich then move their operations out of the USSA to a country where the corporate tax rate is lower and they can hire folks who’ll work a lot cheaper. The USSA is now comprised of folks who are pursuing their dreams and nothing else. Need I go further?

It seems as though the leaders of this country are discouraging working for a living unless you are doing something that you really love and are passionate about. It certainly sounds like they want everyone to have a perfect life with no trials and tribulations. To the liberals, that probably sounds wonderful. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the current president care so much about us that they want us to always be happy and never experience any sadness. They want to provide for our every need so we’ll hunger no more, thirst no more, struggle no more, etc.
Now what does this sound like to you? They want to create Heaven on earth, maybe. They want government to take the place of God, for the government to be your god.

There are those out there that are probably going to come back at me saying, well, didn’t you do the same thing that Nancy Pelosi was suggesting. You quit your job to start your own business and that led to you having written your first novel, “For Best and Worst,” (release date to be determined). Yes, I did quit my day job that I hated to start my own business, but I had some money in savings and was prepared to pay for my own health insurance. Also, I’m supplementing my savings by doing some occasional consulting work.

Did I love writing the book? Yes, very much. Do I love all the stuff that goes along with writing the book? Some of it, but not all of it. Do I like working on the other aspects of my business? Yes, but there are times when I have to step outside of my comfort zone. Are things going to always be blissful for me? Absolutely not! Will there be times when I contemplate going back to a fulltime job and working under some jack ass’s thumb? Yes. Will I ever have to get a fulltime job and work under some jack ass? I hope not, and that’s what’s driving me to work fourteen hours a day. When was the last time that I spent a day not doing business related stuff? Christmas, I think.
