Fox Anchor: CNBC ‘Silenced’ Me For Reporting On Obamacare

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Now here is a major league shocker, CNBC and the other mainstream media outlets are biased?

Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis said she was “silenced” by CNBC when management told her she was “disrespecting the office of the president” by reporting about Obamacare.

Francis highlighted Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments about the “stupidity” of American voters and the administration intentionally misleading the public about what’s in the law and said in her experience, some of the media helped to hide the truth about the law.

“It’s shocking, but it doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work,” Francis said Friday. “Not the politics by the way, but just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.”

Francis pointed out that she has an economics degree from Harvard University and said she was simply trying to explain the math behind Obamacare to her viewers — the same math Gruber has candidly admitted the administration tried to hide.

“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” Francis said. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in facts, millions of people had their plans canceled.”

Francis said she was called into a meeting with CNBC management (she would not specify names) and told she was “disrespecting the office of the president.”

Five million Americans in for premium spikes if Obamacare challenge is successful

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Remember none of this debacle was ever about providing health care. If it was, the government would not have got themselves involved.  Pure control of more of the U.S. GDP and power over the people and little else.

ObamaCare is law. If it were so damn great why does Obama feel compelled to keep pimping it?

He knows it’s going to go down just like his trumped up failed legacy as soon as Republicans win back the senate in 2014 and the presidency in 2016.

Less we forget, it only passed because nobody read it, people were bribed for their votes, meetings were held behind closed doors, just the way things are done in Russia.

A Washington-based consultancy estimated Thursday that 5 million Americans would see their health premiums spike if the courts rule in favor of a lawsuit that seeks to cut off Obamacare subsidies to about two-thirds of the states.

Consumers who purchased health plans on an insurance exchange run by the feds., would see an average premium increase of 76 percent if the plaintiffs prevail over the Obama administration, according to Avalere Health.

The suit, Halbig v. Burwell, argues the Affordable Care Act explicitly reserved subsidies for people who purchased a plan on an exchange “established by the State.” In real terms, that would mean the 15 exchanges set up and run by 14 states and the District.

The plaintiffs say Congress set it up this way to compel states to take responsibility for running their exchanges. But in 2012, the IRS unlawfully extended tax credits to all the exchanges, they argue.

The Obama administration and its allies say Congress always intended to treat the states equally. The law calls on the government to set up an exchange for states that refused to, they argued.

A three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit is mulling the case and may issue its opinion any day now. No matter the outcome, the losing side is certain to appeal, potentially cuing up yet another Obamacare battle before the Supreme Court.

House budget punishes IRS with 15% cut, halts Obamacare enforcement

 

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
Had this not appeared in the Washington Examiner I would be likely to classify it as a hoax.
IRS-Trojan-Horse
It looks like the House of Representatives is going to extract some payback from the IRS and enforcement of ObamaCare.
Be still my heart!
The Washington Examiner

By Paul Bedard June 18, 2014

The Internal Revenue Service is about to get slapped with a harsh payback for messing around with conservative groups, blowing wads of tax dollars on employee conferences and helping implement Obamacare.

The House Appropriations Committee is set to OK an IRS budget of $10.9 billion, $1.5 billion under President Obama‘s request for fiscal year 2015, reducing the agency’s budget to 2008 levels.

The goal is to keep the tax agency focused on its “core duties,” and eliminate efforts to judge the political activities of tax-exempt groups and brake its implementation of Obamacare.

The funding is part of a larger $21 billion bill for several agencies including the IRS, Treasury Department and Securities and Exchange Commission. Noting that it cuts $2.3 billion from the president’s overall request, Chairman Hal Rogers said, “the bill focuses cuts on lower-priority or poor-performing agencies, such as the scandal-plagued and inefficient Internal Revenue Service.”

The agency has always felt GOP fire, but the controversies over probing Tea Party and conservative groups, lavish spending on conventions and bonuses and a new push to re-evaluate the tax exempt status of political groups has the Republican-controlled House on the war path – one the Democratically-controlled Senate isn’t expected to follow when it takes up the same spending bill next week.

Below are the bill highlights about the IRS:

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – Included in the bill is $10.95 billion for the IRS – a cut of $341 million below the fiscal year 2014 enacted level and $1.5 billion below the President’s budget request.

This will bring the agency’s budget below the sequester level and below the level that was in place in fiscal year 2008. This funding level is sufficient for the IRS to perform its core duties, including taxpayer services and the proper collection of funds, but will require the agency to streamline and make better use of its budget.

In addition, due to the inappropriate actions by the IRS in targeting groups that hold certain political beliefs, as well as its previous improper use of taxpayer funds, the bill includes the following provisions:

Obamacare Contractor Pays People to Do Nothing

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

The article below is even more classic when you consider the graphic immediately below.

It does seem fitting that people are paid to do nothing so people can’t sign up to receive nothing. 

The drum beat of socialism marches on until We the People remove the fools currently destroying our country in the 2014-16 elections.

Employees at Serco, an Obamacare processing center in Missouri with a contract worth more than $1.2 billion, are coming forward with stunning accounts of the odd work environment there.

A current employee alleges that there is no work for employees to do, so they often sit idly staring at computer screens.

Serco is supposed to process Obamacare applications, input the data into computers, and complete the sign up process, but the employee told KMOV that weeks could pass without an employee processing an application.

“The main thing is that the Data Entry side does not have hardly any work to do. They’re told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every ten minutes, no more than every ten minutes.

Duh

(Finally a job suitable for Obama and all those that voted for him twice!)

They’re monitored to hopefully look for an application. Their goals are set to process two applications per month and some people are not even able to do that,” the employee said.

The employee shared that as a contractor, Serco gets paid for the number of people they employ, so they want to hire more workers even though there is not enough work to go around.

A former employee echoed the sentiments of the current employee, writing on a website that Serco “is a JOKE! There is nothing to do- NO WORK.”

As November disaster looms, Dems forming circular firing squad

With the brand of progressive/socialist currently running roughshod over the U.S. Constitution and all American Citizens, you knew this was going to happen.

Their lust for power and perks runs so deeply that they would eat their young to ensure they won another election.

The American Thinker

Thomas Lifson
April 1, 2014
 

The standard MSM trope is that the GOP is riven by conflict, but even they are beginning to notice Democrats turning against one another.

There is going to be hell to pay for the Democrats in November. Having rammed through a disastrous transformation of health care, a lot of congressional Democrats and many more down the ticket suspect that voters will vent their anger at the party that foisted the travesty on us.

As the old saying goes, “Success has a thousand fathers and failure is an orphan.” So Democrats are scrambling to make sure that their backs are protected when Demageddon happens. Against this dynamic, a variety of issues are being contested. Two analysts today lay out the fault lines. Michael Barone:  

Now in the sixth year of the Obama presidency, with his job approval stuck below 50 percent, there are signs of strain. And choices made earlier, when Democrats held congressional supermajorities, are starting to prove troublesome.

One choice was to not bring forward immigration legislation that would provide a path to legalization for immigrants in the country unlawfully. This was a top priority for the Hispanic Caucus, but Obama and Democratic congressional leaders chose not to advance an issue that would cost them the support of some Democrats and require Republican votes.

During the 2012 campaign, this caused Obama few problems, except for some pointed questions in a Univision interview. But the president’s job approval among Hispanics plummeted 23 points in 2013, according to Gallup — more than any other demographic group.

And it may be plummeting even more. Hispanics are more likely than average to lack health insurance, and Obamacare was supposed to help. But, with a Spanish language website non-functional for two months, few uninsured Hispanics seem to have signed up, and the latest Pew Research Center poll shows Obamacare approval among Hispanics down to 47 percent.

There is also tension on greenie front:

One issue the Obama Democrats put ahead of immigration was global warming. In June 2009, Nancy Pelosi’s House passed a cap-and-trade bill. That had political costs — it was a career-ender for many Blue Dog Democrats — and the issue never reached the Senate floor even when there were 60 Democrats there.

But it was a top priority for green gentry liberals. Green in their concern for the environment — and green in terms of money. This year, San Francisco hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer pledged to spend $100 million to elect candidates opposed to the Keystone XL pipeline.

Some conservative political groups have run into trouble making ads that criticize Obamacare. The ads were intended to showcase “horror stories” from the Democrats’ national health care overhaul, but instead attracted zealous fact-checking and ferocious pushback from media outlets and liberal activists.

Here is an example: Sorry, you must click on the link as no code was provided.

[www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk2d_liZqpk]

The most striking example is a recent ad from Americans for Prosperity, the organization backed by Charles and David Koch, the conservative businessmen-philanthropists who have emerged as this year’s Target No. 1 for Democrats.

The so-called Democratic strategist on with Megan Kelley could not be more of a fraud.

Perhaps he might spend some time in the real world and see how many physicians are actually taking new patients with Obama Care arranged health cares.

The government has no business being involved with so-called “Health Care,” particularly when ObamaCare was designed with health care denial and rationing in mind.

The ad featured a Michigan woman, Julie Boonstra, who said she had been diagnosed with leukemia and given a 20 percent chance of surviving, but had fortunately found a “wonderful doctor and a great health care plan.”

At least, before Obamacare. “I was doing fairly well fighting the cancer,” Boonstra said in the ad, “fighting the leukemia, and then I received the letter. My insurance was canceled because of Obamacare.

Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it’s unaffordable. If I do not receive my medication, I will die. I believed the president. I believed I could keep my health insurance plan. I feel lied to. It’s heartbreaking for me.”

The ad ended with Boonstra accusing Michigan Democratic Rep. Gary Peters of jeopardizing her health by voting for the Affordable Care Act.

After the commercial aired, fact-checkers noted that under a new policy available to her through Obamacare, Boonstra would actually have lower premiums. Even with higher deductibles, it all pretty much evened out, or even saved Boonstra some money in the end.

Obamacare is a fitting noose around Democrats’ necks

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Let’s see if we have this right, “Pollster Celinda Lake’s advice to fellow Democrats to take a midway position in the 2014 congressional campaigns is flawed because it can’t be sold as honest.

Has there ever been anything honest come from this administration? 

The only way democrats can win it to lie, cheat and make a mockery of the voting process.

The inescapable fact is that Democrats have supported Obamacare the whole way.

Reacting to results from her bipartisan Battleground Poll that show Obamacare to be a political loser, Lake said: “Don’t defend it. Say it was flawed from the beginning and we’re going to fix it.”

Note that she didn’t advise to reject it outright, apparently because she knows that’s never going to fly with President Obama and the Democratic establishment and probably because it would be tantamount to an admission that the party has failed in its central policy “achievement.”

But her advice to adopt a middle-of-the-road position is not much different. To say the law was flawed from the beginning is a damning admission, especially considering how inflexible the Democrats were when they crammed this albatross through Congress.

I just read a story reminding us that Democrats had a chance to try a more moderate approach in 2009, when then-Sen. Max Baucus warned that Democrats could ram through a health care overhaul on a partisan vote, but wouldn’t be able to sustain it. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ended up scuttling Baucus’ attempt to scale back the bill. So Democrats had a chance to moderate it, but they went full-bore defiance and stuffed it down our throats.
