Key Obamacare Architect: We Had to Lie to Pass Obamacare

Keep in mind, Gruber isn’t just some random flunky off the streets.  He was one of the key architects responsible for writing the law.  IN HIS OWN WORDS he describes how those who crafted the law had to lie to the American people to get it passed.  It was written specifically in such a way that the CBO would not (at the time) score the things hidden in Obamacare as taxes, or it couldn’t have passed.  They had to hide the fact that healthy people would pay in for sick people to get more money.  He says “lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” or more accurately, ‘lying was the only way we could pass this.’  He calls the American people ‘stupid’.  And lastly, understand that Obamacare is a 100% DEMOCRAT LAW, passed without a single Republican vote, and passed despite a majority of Americans NOT wanting this law at the time, and a larger majority who oppose it now.

Remember the lies that the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, told the American people over and over again trying to drum up support for this government takeover of our healthcare system.

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.”

“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”

“In an Obama Administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”

“Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”

“I will protect Medicare.”

Conservatives who read the law before it was passed tried to warn everyone that these lies were just that.  Lies.  Now the pain of these lies is being felt by nearly everyone, and it is only getting worse as premiums and penalties are set to go up AGAIN in January.  Costs are skyrocketing as availability and quality of care deteriorate as more and more doctors either refuse to accept Obamacare, or are just leaving practice altogether, as we predicted they would. 

There is only one course of action acceptable to recover from this disaster.  FULL REPEAL OF OBAMACARE.

Matt Walsh’s letter calling out Obama as a liar is one of the best you’ll read any time soon

The sooner we as Americans drop the chains and false pretenses of political correctness, and start boldly calling things what they really are, the sooner we can point America in the right direction again. Matt Walsh does a fantastic job of that in this letter.



Dear Mr. Obama,

Congratulations on getting 7.1 million people enrolled in Obamacare before the March 31st deadline!

Not to muddy the festivities by harping on technicalities, but I thought I’d pass along just a few corrections, in case you plan on giving anymore speeches or anything:

Alright, by ‘March 31st’ you mean ‘sometime in April,’ and by ‘deadline’ you mean‘suggestion which is subject to change.’

And, obviously, by ‘enrolled’ you mean ‘people who have filled some information out on a website.’

And by ’7.1 million’ you mean ‘probably like 858 thousand or something.’

In your speech on Tuesday, when you said that Obamacare is ‘the law’ and ‘it’s here to stay,’ you really meant that Obamacare is ‘a fluid and constantly adjusted set of unconstitutional decrees, which can be imposed or withdrawn by the Executive Branch at any point, for any reason, up to 21 times and counting.’ And by ‘here to stay,’you actually meant to say that ‘most of it is neither here nor staying, because you don’t want America to feel the full brunt of it until after the midterm elections.’

You claimed that ‘more than 3 million young adults have gained insurance’ by staying on their parents’ plan. Even if that were true, it seems to take for granted that there’s anything remotely positive about the government forcing insurance companies to treat 25-year-old men and women like children. But, more importantly, it isn’t.

Indeed, when you said ‘more than 3 million,’ you really meant ‘extrapolations based on faulty estimates conjured up by Health and Human Services almost two years ago have brought us to the dubious conclusion that we can claim 3 million, because nobody will understand how we arrived at that figure, and most everyone will be too lazy to even attempt to check our numbers.’

You appeared to venture into the vicinity of truth when you stated that Obamacare is‘doing what it’s supposed to do,‘ but then you forgot to stipulate what, precisely, that happens to be.

It has not, nor was it meant to, make insurance cheaper and more accessible – but it has stripped away choice and freedom, and made more people dependent on the government.

It has forced single men and elderly couples and nuns to pay for maternity care and birth control. Likewise, it has compelled everyone to purchase coverage for psychiatric illness and drug addiction treatment, even if we aren’t necessarily psychiatrically ill or addicted to drugs (though, with your help, the pharmaceutical industry will soon get us all under one or both of those umbrellas).

And, while you spiked the football in the Rose Garden, you still failed to indicate how many people have purchased and paid for a plan, as opposed to just checking some boxes. And you forgot to tell us how many of the Obamacare ’enrollees’ were only inclined to enroll in Obamacare because your law forced them off of their original plans.

You celebrated a ‘law’ that will supposedly ’insure the uninsurable,’ even though most of the people now insured by Obamacare aren’t actually yet insured, but they were insured before Obamacare made them uninsured under their original insurance.

Of course, this is all after you famously told us we can ‘keep our plans’ if we ‘like them,’while omitting that by ‘keep’ you meant ‘watch as it is demolished in front of our eyes,’and when you said ‘like’ you didn’t include the disclaimer that we’d all be legally obligated to adjust our affections in the direction of the type of plan you think we should like.

Whew. My head is spinning.

You’re a slippery one, Mr. Obama.

I feel like I’m beginning to learn your language, although I haven’t deciphered the entire code. I do know that, essentially, when you say a certain thing, what you really mean is anything but the thing you just said.

Honestly, I’m starting to think that you’re doing this on purpose.

I’m starting to think that you’re… lying.

You’re a liar.

Yes, that explains it. You’re either enormously inaccurate and oblivious in ways that just so happen to suit your political goals, or you’re a scheming, conniving liar.

I’m going with the latter. You lie. That’s all you do. You’re a liar.

I know, in this day and age of ‘civil discourse,’ we aren’t allowed use words like ‘liar’ anymore. It’s such a harsh and startling term. It upsets people. It makes them sad. It makes them feel all icky inside. But, Lord forgive me, I’d rather call a spade a spade and a liar a liar — as opposed to your strategy, which is to call a spade a tortoise, or an apple, or a three toed sloth, or anything but a spade.

I would label you pathological — as deception seems to drip like putrid sewage from every single word and phrase that escapes your lips — but I know your lies are calculated, not compulsive. You can’t be a pathological liar for the same reason that an effective diamond thief can’t be a kleptomaniac. Your lie, like his heist, requires careful planning and plotting. You’re very aware of the truth, which is what makes you so adept at avoiding it.

Still, I’d like to, for your sake, take you seriously on one count.

In your speech, you said this:

“I’ve got to admit, I don’t get it. Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance?”

Why are folks mad at you? Well, as you’ve pointed out in the past, it’s probably because you’re black.

Yeah, that’s gotta be part of it. I’m sure cancer patients would be excited about having their plans abolished and their out-of-pocket expenses skyrocket, if only it had come at the hands of a white dude.

But, beneath the racism, maybe there’s something deeper going on.

Maybe, Mr. Obama, we’re all just tired of the lies.

Maybe we’re mad because you used the IRS against your political opponents, and lied about it. And you spied on everyone’s phone records (after specifically condemning that sort of practice), and lied about it. And you sent your Justice Department after journalists and whistleblowers, and lied about it. And you funneled weapons to drug cartels and terrorists, and lied about it. And you assassinated American citizens and drone bombed hundreds of innocent civilians, and lied about it. And you filled your administration with lobbyists, and lied about it. And you armed a terrorist insurrection in Libya, then orchestrated a cover-up once the terrorists murdered our ambassador, and lied about it. And, in general — whether it’s wiretapping, or Guantanamo, or deficit spending, or Obamacare, or whatever else – we’ve seen you do everything you said you wouldn’t, and little of what you said you would.

We’ve heard you lie. Over. And over. And over. And over again.

Maybe that’s why folks are so mad.

Maybe you’re a liar, and we know it.

And so do you.

I hope this helps clear up your confusion.

Sincerely,

Matt Walsh

Welfare government’s single largest budget item in FY 2011 at approx. $1.03 trillion

“The government spent approximately $1.03 trillion on 83 means-tested federal welfare programs in fiscal year 2011 alone — a price tag that makes welfare that year the government’s largest expenditure, according to new data released by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee…  The data excludes spending on Social Security, Medicare, means-tested health care for veterans without service-connected disabilities, and the means-tested veterans pension program…  The total federal spending on federal welfare programs vastly outpaced fiscal year 2011 spending on such federal expenditures as non-war defense ($540 billion), Social Security ($725 billion), Medicare ($480 billion), and departments such as Justice ($30.5 billion), Transportation ($77.3 billion) and Education ($65.486 billion)”

The unsustainable warp-speed expansion of the Obama welfare state continues unchecked.  We have already passed the point where the spending levels can be sustained by the number of people working and paying taxes.  The spending on welfare programs, and government spending in general, is increasing like a runaway nuclear reactor, and the pace at which people quit pulling the wagon and climb into it expecting a free ride is accelerating.  Pretty soon the few who remain straining at the bit to pull the wagon are going to quit pulling.  Then what? 

Atlas Shrugged?  Weimar Republic?  Greece?  Zimbabwe?

All of the above.

Report: Welfare government’s single largest budget item in FY 2011 at approx. $1.03 trillion

Posted By Caroline May On 12:00 AM 10/18/2012 @ 12:00 AM In DC Exclusives – Original Reporting,DC Exclusives – Slideshow,Politics,RSS to email,Slideshow,Uncategorized

The government spent approximately $1.03 trillion on 83 means-tested federal welfare programs in fiscal year 2011 alone — a price tag that makes welfare that year the government’s largest expenditure, according to new data released by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

The total sum taxpayers spent on federal welfare programs was derived from a new Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on federal welfare spending — which topped out at $745.84 billion for fiscal year 2011 — combined with an analysis from the Republican Senate Budget Committee staff of state spending on federal welfare programs (based on “The Oxford Handbook of State and Local Government Finance”), which reached $282.7 billion in fiscal year 2011.

The data excludes spending on Social Security, Medicare, means-tested health care for veterans without service-connected disabilities, and the means-tested veterans pension program.

According to the CRS report, which focused solely on federal spending for federal welfare programs, spending on federal welfare programs increased $563.413 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $745.84 billion in fiscal year 2011 — a 32 percent increase.

Dr. David Janda explains rationing

When this video was made 46% of doctors surveyed said they would leave practice when the provisions of Obamacare that put bureaucrats in charge of treating patients instead of doctors kick in. That was in 2010. Now the percentage of doctors who say they will leave practice is as high as 83%. 83% fewer doctors, $500 billion fewer dollars in Medicare, and 20 million more non-paying patients. What could go wrong?



Fix income inequality with $10 million loans for everyone!

Former FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair, using my style of sarcasm, really lays it on Mr. Bernanke and the Obama administrations fiscal policies.  A very entertaining and educational article, assuming you are not one easily distracted by sarcasm.

Fix income inequality with $10 million loans for everyone!

By Sheila Bair, Published: April 13

Are you concerned about growing income inequality in America? Are you resentful of all that wealth concentrated in the 1 percent? I’ve got the perfect solution, a modest proposal that involves just a small adjustment in the Federal Reserve’s easy monetary policy. Best of all, it will mean that none of us have to work for a living anymore.

Comprehensive List of Obama Tax Hikes

With all the crap about the rich not paying their “fair” share, and Obama saying every couple of months that he’s going to focus like a laser on jobs when he’s failed to do so every time he says it, why don’t we take a look at what Obama’s tax policies and tax increases are doing to both jobs and your wallet.

Most of Obama’s hidden tax increases are buried in the bowels of Obamacare.  You remember.  That monstrosity of a bill that we had to pass before we could find out what was in it?

Comprehensive List of Obama Tax Hikes

Which one of these tax hikes will destroy the most jobs?

Sign up for our email list to stay up-to-date on the looming tax fights in Congress!

Since taking office, President Barack Obama has signed into law twenty-one new or higher taxes:

1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco:  On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack.  The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year.

2. Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax (takes effect in Jan 2014): Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance must pay an income surtax according to the higher of the following

Call Obama’s Bluff

I find it hard to agree more with Mr. Krauthammer on this one.  Obama has no real plan, and rejects any proposal from republicans and conservatives that actually cuts spending and works to achieve a solution that is longer term than Obama’s reelection campaign campaign in 2012.

Boehner and McConnell are talking tough, but AS USUAL are being played like fiddles, partly because of their ineptitude, and partly because I firmly believe they are both RINO’s at heart.  Boehner was an ineffective minority leader, and isn’t doing any better as majority leader.   Every time he’s forced to take a stand, HE CRIES AND CAVES IN.

Obama is lying to America about the what will happen if we hit the debt ceiling.  We have enough revenue to pay for Social Security, Medicare, the service on our debt, and the military and its pensions.  Of course Obama and the democrats would have to cut spending on other spending that isn’t quite so critical, like, say the EPA, IRS, Dept of Energy, Dept of Education, and many other worthless agencies and pork projects that aren’t giving the taxpayers an adequate return on their investment.  But Obama and the democrats won’t even DISCUSS the possibilities.  It’s “let me spend all I want, or we start starving seniors and quit paying the military.”

Republicans, you SHOULD be calling Obama’s bluff, but as a party you don’t have the spine to do it.  You are more worried about your careers and some people getting mad at you than doing the right thing for America.

So, here’s what I think will happen.  The republicans, lead by back stabbers like John McCain, Lindsey Graham”nesty”, and John Boehner, will cave in to Obama’s schemes, they will raise the the debt ceiling accompanied by basically meaningless so-called “reforms” that turn out to be worthless at reducing spending or debt, just as in the budget battle last fall, Obama and the democrats will keep spending at a record pace, credit agencies will STILL downgrade our credit rating because there will be no long term plan to fix the exploding debt, and we will hit the debt ceiling AGAIN, and with even more catastrophic, real impacts.

I want to be wrong on this. Someone please convince me that I am. Continue reading
