New Meanings for the Word "Lie"
By Joe Messina
This week, Obama, Sebelius and Carney, introduced new meanings for the word "lie." The president's speech from Boston talked about what a success the Obamacare rollout was (insert cricket sounds here). Seriously? If by "success," he meant the rollout of a Web site built to gather information and allow people to sign up for "affordable health care" where 90+% of the people attempting to sign onto it could do nothing, and I mean truly nothing! The president stated a few facts about people that signed up for healthcare and saved "lots of money" only to find out later that at the time he made the speech just under 50,000 people had "signed up." Come to find out, "signed up" actually meant "registered" to use the site. Most people thought the president meant the folks were signed up for their healthcare. I have registered on many Web sites for information without signing up for the product or services. There is a difference. [more...]
Americans are being led down the wrong path. There has been and continues to be a concerted effort led by the Government and encouraged by the media to make us believe that our healthcare system was the worse system in the industrialized world, that doctors were the cause of high healthcare costs, that if you were responsible for paying for your own health insurance you were selfish and somehow taking it from someone less fortunate, and that if you feel everyone has the right to pursue economic independence without government intervention that is designed to pick winners and losers – you hate the poor or you are racist and/or sexist. The truth is much simpler; under the guise of liberalism and fairness, our government has adopted the concept of central planning. We have had a concerted globalization of our banking system (TARP), our military (subjugation of our autonomy to the UN), and the centralization of our public education system (first with 'no child left behind' and now with the Common Core Curriculum). It has taken over 50 years starting with adoption of Medicare, i.e., socialized medicine for seniors, notwithstanding the failure of Hillary care, to take over our healthcare system with the arrival of Obamacare.

You Can Keep Your Insurance and Your Doctor... If Hell Freezes Over
By Kerry Lutz
The President and his minions issued a number of assurances to the public during Obamacare debate. Chief among them was that if you liked your health insurance plan and your doctor, you would be able to keep them. Now, millions are finding out that these statements were complete and utter lies. The price of ignorance is often high. If people had only bothered to read, they would have understood years ago that these guarantees were untrue. For a policy to comply with the requirements of Obamacare, it had to offer ten certain basic benefits, including but not limited to, abortion, birth control pills, child delivery, mental health care and no yearly or lifetime caps for medical treatment. This meant that not only would individual health plans be legislated out of existence, but so would most, if not all, employer-provided insurance plans as well. [more...]
How to Fight and Defeat Obamacare
I would recommend that, for starters, all personal attacks against the president should be immediately discontinued, and he should be accorded the deference his office mandates. The Conservative focus should instead be limited to irrefutable facts that speak for themselves. For example, rightwing pundits or politicians might point out that the government had three and a half years to prepare the computer system for the Obamacare rollout, and what it finally produced has failed miserably. Managing the actual healthcare system is an infinitely more complex task than designing its computer system. It is thus foolhardy to entrust the medical care of 300 million Americans to a management entity that has proven itself to be so grossly inept. [more...]
The Employer Mandate Could be Worse than the Obamacare Web site
If I told you that I would sell you a Web site for a billion dollars that didn't work, would expose everyone's personal information, and that would be an absolute mess, you'd probably think I was crazy. However, if you work for the Obama administration, this is just another day at the office. In just 30 days, Americans have had their insurance policies cancelled and have been directed towards a site called healthcare.gov to submit their personal information which can be shared with people that you don't know who can do God knows what with it. In just 30 days, we've seen the massive debacle that the individual mandate of Obamacare has turned out to be. But we've yet to see the worst. [more...]
