As Obamacare continues to implode, one can listen to cable network gab fest anchors and their endless panels and guests from "both sides of the political spectrum" throw around the word subsidies as if it means nothing. True, while sometimes monitoring Megyn Kelly, a lawyer on FOX, she will throw in something like "we pay for it". But, not enough time is being given to that catastrophic h-bomb to the economy nor do any of them discuss the issue of equal protection under the law which I covered in a recent column: Obamacare: New Lawsuits Should be Equal Protection Under the Law. If you haven't read that column, please take the time to do so because those so-called Obamacare subsidies are nothing but another massive Ponzi scheme that WILL finally bankrupt what's left of the middle class in this country.
For once the NY Times actually prints the truth: New York Times: Obamacare Decimates Middle Class
"But middle class Americans, with incomes much lower than the family of four in New Hampshire, will get decimated. An analysis by the Times found those in the middle class may have to pay nearly 20% of their income on Obamacare. To put that in perspective, "experts consider health insurance unaffordable once it exceeds 10 percent of annual income." Consider these examples:
"A 60-year-old living in Polk County, in northwestern Wisconsin, and earning $50,000 a year, for example, would have to spend more than 19 percent of his income, or $9,801 annually, to buy one of the cheapest plans available there. A person earning $45,000 would qualify for subsidies and would pay about 5 percent of his income, or $2,228, for an inexpensive plan."
20% of your income just for health care premiums. Oh, but it gets better - a very important read:
We know the concept behind this communist blueprint health care scheme is to pull in young healthy bodies to pay for those who can't afford custom health plans, the old and sick. A new generation of slaves. However, the plan of the stinking Red in the White House and his comrades isn't working out too well. It seems not all the 20-somethings have their heads in pot smoke. Weighing the options, they choose to pay the $87.00 fine - which by the way, spikes each year thereafter. Oh, wait, it's a tax! So said that joke of a Supreme Court Justice, John Roberts. No, wait, Kathleen Sebelius, head of the unconstitutional HHS who pimps shamelessly for the usurper in the White house says it's a fine:
Kathleen Sebelius admits Obamacare is a fine… not a tax (October 9, 2013)
"First it was a fine, then it was a tax, and now it's a fine again – the definition of Obamacare changes depending on the politically expedient position of any given moment. It couldn't be called a tax in the beginning because people don't like taxes. It couldn't be a fine during the SCOTUS hearings because then it'd be unconstitutional. But, alas, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on with Jon Stewart calling the law a fine once again."
My husband and I are not affected by the Obamacare disaster because we are military retirees who pay our own premiums through TriCare Prime. But once again, the thieves in the U.S. Congress decided they have the power to steal the fruits of our labor to pay for someone else's health care - on top of being forced with a gun to our heads to pay Medicare (which I DO NOT want to be forced into). How many more personal responsibilities are we going to be forced to pay for a hundred million other people? Not to mention Medicaid on the state level.
Despite the endless stream of propaganda from socialists and Marxists in the Outlaw Congress and the old media, no one in this country has any constitutional or "civil right" to health care. It is no different than buying car, burial or pet insurance. All three of which I have, but would never demand you pay my premiums.
Do I wish everyone in the U.S. could have health care coverage? Yes - IF they choose to get some sort of plan or like millions of young, healthy adult aged Americans, they choose not to or purchase a plan tailored to suit their particular circumstances. That whole traitorous bunch in the Outlaw Congress decided while being cheered on by Marxist heroes like Bill & Hillary Clinton, to simply crap on the Constitution again and here we are with a mess the likes few of us have ever seen.
The same rotten SOBs who destroyed the finest health care delivery system in the world - the U.S. Congress. It all started back in 1973:
"We should remember that HMOs did not arise because of free-market demand, but rather because of government mandates. The HMO Act of 1973 requires all but the smallest employers to offer their employees HMO coverage, and the tax code allows businesses — but not individuals — to deduct the cost of health insurance premiums. The result is the illogical coupling of employment and health insurance, which often leaves the unemployed without needed catastrophic coverage.
"While many in Congress are happy to criticize HMOs today, the public never hears how the present system was imposed upon the American people by federal law. As usual, government intervention in the private market failed to deliver the promised benefits and caused unintended consequences, but Congress never blames itself for the problems created by bad laws. Instead, we are told more government — in the form of “universal coverage” — is the answer. But government already is involved in roughly two-thirds of all health care spending, through Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs." And: Blame Congress for HMO's by Twila Brase, a registered nurse and President of the Citizens' Council on Health Care & former Congressman and physician, Dr. Ron Paul."
Another qualified individual who spoke as a whistle blower against HMOs:
"On June 24, 2009, before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Potter testified, "The average family doesn't understand how Wall Street's dictates determine whether they will be offered coverage, whether they can keep it, and how much they'll be charged for it. But, in fact, Wall Street plays a powerful role. The top priority of for-profit companies is to drive up the value of their stock. Stocks fluctuate based on companies' quarterly reports, which are discussed every three months in conference calls with investors and analysts. On these calls, Wall Street investors and analysts look for two key figures: earnings per share and the medical-loss ratio, or medical 'benefit ratio,' as the industry now terms it. That is the ratio between what the company actually pays out in claims and what it has left over to cover sales, marketing, underwriting and other administrative expenses and, of course," Potter testified, "profits."
But, we have to remember how many whores in the Outlaw Congress are bought and paid for by the medical insurance industry as well as being owned by the big pharmaceutical companies. BIG money. BIG betrayal of the American people. Too bad the American people couldn't get their heads out of rectal darkness long enough to understand what was being done to them the past four decades. Instead, tens of millions of Americans chased trivial pursuits and bought into socialist rhetoric drummed into their heads by their incumbent. Well, here we are and now those same Americans are suffering right along with those of us who opposed the unconstitutional hijacking of the health care industry.
Despite the horse manure coming out of talking heads, stupid economists and professional politicians, America's economy is not on the road to recovery. Americans are once again going into heavy debt just to stay afloat each month. With some 24 MILLION full time workers unemployed and another 90 MILLION out of the work force for any number of reasons and 49 MILLION on food stamps, just who is going to pay the TRILLIONS in subsidies about to drown all of us?
How about those making more than $170,000 a year who are going to rape you and me to subsidize their health care premiums?
(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), whose congressional salary is $174,000 a year, said he has purchased health insurance on the District of Columbia small business Obamacare exchange, and will accept a taxpayer-funded subsidy to help him pay for that insurance...."CNSNews.com asked: "Why do you think it's the right thing to do to accept that subsidy? Some people are criticizing that?
"Sessions: "I opposed the bill from the beginning, but this is the health--this is a--for me, even with the subsidy that we've had before which they've ruled is proper...the Office of Personnel Management said it was appropriate to, in effect, continue the subsidy that we had, which is what we've always had. But in addition I would say that it will cost members--most members--more.”
Harry Reid Takes Taxpayer Subsidy: 'My Employer Helps Me Pay for My Health Care' - Dirty Harry hauls in an annual salary of $193,400.
"In accepting the subsidy, Rubio joins Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), who told CNSNews.com there's "no question" that members of Congress are entitled to taxpayer help in purchasing their health insurance. Rangel said he considers the subsidies to be part of Congress' "overall compensation."
"Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) recently told C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" that as a member of Congress, he'll be forced to get his own insurance through the Obamacare exchanges, and he thinks taxpayers should continue helping him pay his premiums."
Some members of the Outlaw Congress have refused the subsidy; see link above. NO WHERE in the U.S. Constitution does it give Congress or OPM the authority to steal the fruits of anyone's labor to pay for someone else's health care premiums. Not to mention this unconstitutional rape and if you think it's not coming, think again. It will be the same old justification used in 2008- "too big to fail".
"The insurers understand that they're going to be completely ruined," Krauthammer said on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace. "And what's going to happen as a result of this? There's only one way out, a huge government bailout of the insurers is waiting at the end of next year."
And, let us not forget this group because as I said in my column, Wait gunny - I have to change my diaper, you and I are going to be unconstitutionally fleeced to pay for the consequences of sexual deviants CHOSEN sexual behavior:
"Medical research has demonstrated the LGBT community is disproportionately susceptible to a wide variety of health problems aside from HIV/AIDS, including mental illness and suicide, alcoholism, drug addiction and substance abuse.
"In a slide presentation titled “Out2Enroll: The Affordable Care Act and the LGBT Communities,” prepared for a Sept. 12 White House briefing on Obamacare and the LGBT community, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health counted 8 million Americans as gay, lesbian or bisexual. With another 700,000 regarded as transgender, Johns Hopkins estimates about 2.84 percent of the U.S. population is LGBT. Since the rise of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Centers for Disease Control studies have shown that more than 60 percent of all HIV/AIDS infections – 63 percent in 2010 – are caused by homosexual acts between men."
Sex workers? No, they're whores who prostitute their bodies for money. How many moms and dads would like to see their daughter's career choice as a "sex worker"? Their illegal profession (except Nevada) is exceedingly high risk.
For two months now we've heard all about the sticker shock people are experiencing up front and personal. Their premiums now shooting up double, triple or more. Not to mention huge deductibles in the thousands. For a family struggling who paid $500 a month for a family health plan to now come up with $1100 a month for a health plan with provisions they neither want or need, that extra $600 bux a month in disposable income is now gone. No extra money to put into the local economy. If they don't have the extra money and qualify for the fruits of someone else's labor in subsidies, that someone - you and me - is going to get slammed in more taxes. The result: Less money into savings or to put food on the table, never mind recreational expenditures.
Right now we're only seeing the beginning of the tsunami. Just wait until those whopping 150 MILLION who have health plans through their employer kicks in and then we will see a massive financial bomb go off that will rock this country. Think I'm exaggerating? McDonald's employs roughly 300,000 in the U.S. China (Wal) Mart 1.2 million in the U.S. The majority of those jobs are minimum wage. The jackals in the Outlaw Congress think they can force employers to not only provide health care (which they cannot), but force those employers and employees into a government run taxing scheme. Where will the BILLIONS come from for subsidies for all those minimum wage workers forced into a plan? You and me.
What about small businesses - the backbone of the American economy? You can take money to the bank (if you have any left) that small businesses will be devastated by massive increases in 2014:
"Sharon Wilson, an office manager in Iowa, figured she would lock in a good deal on health care coverage for her five-person biofuels company by renewing its policy before Obamacare kicked in for 2014. But she balked when her agent came back with a 81 percent rate hike, anyway."
Small employers across this country should band together and sue in large numbers; see Employers, Doctors, Obamacare and US Supreme Court Cases
And, what about the massive numbers who have gone into Medicare instead of individual health plans? Guess who is going to get stung big time in higher taxes? Everyone of us in our states. Think not?
"Perry has been a heated opponent of the health law. He refused to accept $100 billion in federal funding to expand Texas’ Medicaid program under Obamacare, which could have helped 1.5 million poor Texans afford basic health benefits. As recently as April, Perry essentially called the expansion a joke. “Seems to me April Fool's Day is the perfect day to discuss something as foolish as Medicaid expansion, and to remind everyone that Texas will not be held hostage by the Obama administration's attempt to force us into the fool's errand of adding more than a million Texans to a broken system,” said Perry. Now, Perry is seeking federal dollars for Texas’ Medicaid program anyway."
$100 MILLION in Obamacare funding? $100 BILLION in federal funding? What $100 MILLION? What $100 BILLION? The treasury is empty. Overdrawn $17 TRILLION dollars. That $100 MILLION OR BILLION will be more borrowed debt. Those poor 1.5 million Texans already get Medicaid in this state paid for with our tax dollars. Now the criminal syndicate in DC wants to force more taxes at the federal level to fund this grossly unconstitutional disaster? They're nothing more than modern day bandits.
"Capitol Hill Republicans are not surprised by a new study that suggests more people will make emergency room visits under ObamaCare, not fewer as President Obama and other supporters of the law argue. The Harvard University study recently published in the journal Science shows that emergency room visits increased by 40 percent for those who received Medicaid when Oregon expanded the program in 2008.
“While these higher costs don't come as a surprise to many, it has left us wondering why do Democrats call it the Affordable Care Act if the law doesn't lower the cost of heath care,” said Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee."
I wonder how this is working out for the tens of millions of Democrats who voted for someone they had no right to vote for (Obama/Soetoro) and their Democrat incumbent in the Outlaw Congress?
The effeminate, lying impostor squatting in the White House has changed the "law" sixteen times since the botched "roll out" - something, even if he were legally elected, has no authority to do.
It's a mess that isn't going to be fixed even if the official web site ever works right, which it never will while Americans are having their identity stolen; yes, it's already happened and will continue. Republicans are allowing themselves to be forced into playing the substitution game: Mouthpieces for the Democratic/Communist Party USA and the ones who serve in the Outlaw Congress continue the same old propaganda about Republicans have nothing to replace Obamacare.
Replace it with nothing because that IS constitutional. The primaries begin in March; the first being here in Texas. Republican incumbents will all talk about Obamacare. They will promise to get rid of Obamacare if you just vote for them in the primary and then in November. Think that will happen with dirtbags like John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell or Raul Ryan just to name a few of the "old establishment" crooks and thieves? Think again. It won't happen. They only want your vote. They want to use you like they do every election cycle.
All the GOP "leadership" talks about is a replacement instead of the constitutional solution. For the love of God, when are conservatives going to stop buying their lies? With BILLIONS (debt) already wasted on Obamacare, the establishment 'old guard' Republicans will come up with politically acceptable excuses instead of just outright repealing the entire "law" in the house and senate (if they take it in Nov) and then over ride the fraud in the White House.
Madness. Absolute and complete insanity in the District of Criminals.
If Republicans remember one thing about Obamacare it should be this: If the Republicans would have challenged Barry Soetoro's alleged win in 2008 as an ineligible candidate, there would be no Obamacare. Instead, ALL of them including Ron Paul, sat there mute while the biggest fraud against the American people (besides the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913 and the Sixteenth and Seventeenth non ratified amendments) was taking place. They allowed the electoral college vote to stand. The spineless poltroons did the same thing in January 2013 and we the people are paying the price for their cowardice. See: GOP: Pay Back for Ignoring Obama's Ineligibility
Oh, but look how profitable it's been for talking heads on "conservative" talk radio, FOX and Republican incumbents! Why FOX's ratings are at the top and who and what has been the main cash cow for years? Barry Soetoro (Obama) and his "signature legislation", Obamacare. GOP incumbents have and continue to milk it for campaign donations with more empty promises.
Some states are fighting back and those leading the charge in their legislatures should be commended for standing up for their sovereignty and their citizens:
HOWEVER, that will not stop the Gestapo (IRS) from stealing the fruits of your labor in those states to fund the Obamacare monstrosity through withholding taxes.
36 states in this Union opted to join the further Sovietization of America with the so called insurance exchanges and Obamacare. 36 states refused to stand up for the U.S. Constitution and tell the Outlaw Congress: No, we will not be part of your illegal taxing scheme. The states are under no obligation to participate in Obamacare; that is a legal fact that cannot be denied.
The Democratic/Communist Party USA along with John Boehner and other RINOs are feverishly working to give liars, cheats and thieves - illegal aliens- citizenship. Suck them into the Obamacare nightmare. Add another 30-40 MILLION and see what happens to that beast. What percentage do you think will be "eligible for subsidies"? 25 MILLION? How long do you think it will take to run up another $100 TRILLION in debt under Obamacare? Not long. Where will the money come from? There isn't enough even if the IRS confiscated 75% of your income in taxes; it will end up just like the ones below.

The misnamed taxing schemes called entitlements are bankrupting this country: SS in unfunded "federal mandates" is $16.7 TRILLION, Medicare: $88.3 TRILLION and the Republicans "free" prescription pills program: $22.2 TRILLION. Look at those numbers. Add 30 - 40 MILLION illegals rewarded for lying, cheating and stealing from we the people into those three programs. How long do you think it will take to run up another $122 TRILLION in debt under those three "entitlements"? Not long. Where will the money come from?
When you hear the word Obamacare subsidies tossed around so cavalierly, remember it's your wallet about to be emptied for the rest of your life unless that disaster completely implodes and kills itself off or one of the lawsuits is successful.
