House votes to repeal, replace Obamacare

Obama appears to think this is funny with his comment below;” “I don’t know whether it’s the 55th or the 60th time that they are taking this vote,” Mr. Obama said of the House.

Neither will Obama!

“But I’ve asked this question before: Why is it that this would be at the top of their agenda, making sure that folks who don’t have health care aren’t able to get it?”

It’s simple Toby, your health care rationing and denial program is neither affordable and it is indeed far to expensive.

The answer is clear we have a 5 ton gorilla sitting in the White House and a real gorilla would be far smarter.

This is of course dependent upon the Senate following suit, with eventual jumping ship of house and senate members facing election in 2016.

As soon as the gorilla is gone the party’s over for Obama’s must stunning failure.

Republicans newly in charge of Congress challenged President Barack Obama at both ends of the Capitol on Tuesday, lining up in the House to repeal the health care program he signed into law and struggling in the Senate to roll back the immigration policies he issued on his own.

The House voted largely along party lines Tuesday to repeal and replace Obamacare, with Republicans vowing to satisfy midterm voters who demanded a new path forward while Democrats taunted their rivals as oblivious to the plight of the uninsured.

The 239-186 vote marked the Republican-majority Congress’ first swipe at the entire health law, cuing up a likely filibuster from Senate Democrats before President Obama can wield his veto pen.

While no Democrats defected from the party line, three Republicans voted against repeal — freshmen Reps. John Katko of New York and Bruce Poliquin of Maine, and Rep. Robert Dold of Illinois, who regained his seat after losing it in 2012.

While it will not become law, the measure was designed to let new Republicans to record their opposition to Obamacare and make good on the GOP’s campaign promise to go after the law and replace it.

“We are doing it because the American people have said, ‘We are tired of this.’ It is damaging health care,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee Republican, said.

Thoughts on the Passing Parade 2016 What the next US President must do

O.K., since the mainstream press is already salivating over the next presidential election cycle (never mind that we have just finished with the mid-term
congressional voting in November. 
I’m going to put forward the platform I would support, endorse, or at least like to see some candidate use. 

This is a living document, subject to periodic reviews by me, and updated as I feel it is needed.

Islam

cropped-crusadetopbanner

I have many posts on my companion blog, “The Dangers of Allah,” blog about the nature of Islam and what jihadist Muslims, those believing in Sharia are willing to do.  (Think The Islamic State)

I don’t want to belabor that point here, but suffice  to say that if all of humanity is a single living organism, it is my belief that Islam behaves like a cancer cell in that organism.  We’d be foolish to not address it in the same way medicine would address a cancer.

If I were to suddenly find myself filling Obama’s shoes, I would use an Executive Order to put Islam and all parasitic support organizations; Nation of Islam, Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Hamas on the list of officially recognized terrorist groups, and order all Islamists expelled from the country.

Freeze, no confiscate, all their assets in this country, and divert the cash to compensation funds for the relatives & survivors of the acts of terror they have committed against the US.  Sell all real estate holdings and add those proceeds to the compensation funds as well.

Back Israel in securing it’s borders and providing for their defense. Help all our North American and European allies to move towards implementing the same rules towards Muslims that Japan uses – and move us that direction as well.

I’ve seen estimates saying we currently have 20 million legal US residents who are either completely unemployed, or working only part-time while wanting full-time work.  I’ve also seen estimates putting the number of illegal immigrants who currently hold full-time jobs in the US at around 12 million. 

This means, by taking those jobs from the illegals and giving them to tax-paying citizens, we could effectively reduce unemployment by more than HALF.  Putting US citizens and LEGAL residents back to work should be a major priority. As such, here is a suggestion that would actually work:

As we have it today, why would parasitic  U.S. citizens opt for dead-end low paying jobs with no benefits when it’s easier to live on the dole?   This is what they do and its generational.

e-verify

Mandate the use of E-Verify for voting and  all employers nationally, no exceptions.

This would need teeth – I propose a $10k fine, per undocumented worker per incident. Which would mean that if INS raided a factory and found 200 non-documented workers there, that one incident would generate a $2 Million fine.

If it happened again 30 days later, that’s another $2 Million. We should use the fines to cover the cost of immediately deporting the illegal workers; no free time in our jails on the taxpayer’s dime.

All Eight of Alinksy’s Rules are firmly entrencehed in the U.S.A.


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

saul-alinsky-rule-13

Are you a useful idiot? Progressives like Hillary Clinton believe you are.

Let’s all turn out to vote in 2014 and 16 to take our country back and prove socialism wrong.

No country has thrived under pure socialism, and that is exactly the direction the Obama cabal is taking us.

alinsky-obama

 Here’s one that is unfortunately true and NOT funny.  

H/T Full Bird Col Wood.

Too bad the media doesn’t make it public knowledge.  It might open the eyes of some seriously misguided folks, and even the Bible says “…the Truth will set you free”

Subject:  Beware The Useful Idiots

If anyone can read this and still say everything is just fine……..

Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.

Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.

Saul David Alinsky, a writer, was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of the modern community organizing movement. He is most noted for his book Rules for Radicals.

 Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Education: University of Chicago

Spouse: Irene Alinsky

Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?

All eight rules are currently in play.

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

socialismpovertySaid differently, “Shared misery for all but the elite.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

A Winning Alternative to Obamacare: Project 2017 The Republican Plan


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

There’s more to the Republican proposal and they invite readers to take a look at it at www.2017project.org.

They admit it’s not perfect, and  hope others will find ways to improve upon it.

The one problem that stands out to me is; they plan to solve the problem of expensive preexisting conditions, allocating $7.5 billion a year in defined-contribution federal funding for state-run “high risk” pools.

Hard+Cider+as+Health+Plan

In reality, all Obama’s Heath Care Denial and Rationing Plan will offer.

At this point I don’t see the government needing to be involved at any level.

Do we need them to helps us buy a car? 

The Weekly Standard

Obamacare is failing. Faced with this unpleasant reality, President Obama offered up during his State of the Union address his only remaining defense of his eponymous program: There is no alternative.

“[M]y Republican friends…if you have specific plans…tell America what you’d do differently….We all owe it to the American people to say what we’re for, not just what we’re against.”

We accept the challenge. The 2017 Project, with which we’re associated, has developed an alternative to Obama’s 2,700 pages of federal largess.

The proposal builds upon prior efforts by conservative policymakers and thinkers, including recent proposals from the House Republican Study Committee (RSC) and a trio of senior GOP senators (Tom Coburn, Richard Burr, and Orrin Hatch).

It would solve the three core problems that called out for real reform even before the Democrats passed Obamacare: getting more people insured; dealing with the problem of preexisting conditions; and lowering costs.

Value Based Insurance: it sounds so – “valuable”


crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.Acknowledged Health Care economics expert, Thomas Loker  poses some serious questions.

Value based insurance, sounds so - valuable!

Value Base Insurance Coverage, it sounds so — valuable. But is it really valuable? Is Value Based Insurance Coverage (VBIC) what you really want — what you may need?

Well, perhaps, that simply remains to be seen.

As we move through the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare, VBIC will become the next big thing we need to pay close attention to.

You can be sure that soon this item will be getting quite a bit of ink as the potential ramifications become apparent.

Like so many things in life, the reality of this “value” based system may be fraught with unintended consequences for the individual and massive values and benefits for Continue reading →

The article titled, “Health emergency: On eve of Obamacare, Britain’s NHS needs political therapy,” is deceiving. 

 

article-0-18F7C49B000005DC-96_634x443

The Canadian system has been broken  for over a decade.

Why do you think Canadian physicians have changed to a fee for service model from the NY Times no less.?

Before that and even now,  Canadian’s who could afford it purchased insurance and went to the U.S. for serious ailments.

Big shocker, the U.S. system with is admitted problems didn’t ration care and waiting to see a physician was not problematic as in Canada where survival rates for most forms of cancer are signifently less than what U.S. patients have with same stage and grade of disease.

The difference early diagnosis.  In Canada if you want to see an oncologist plan on waiting, also factor in rationing and not receiving “state of the art therapy.”

The same  trend can be said for the UK.

The Washington Examiner
As the United States embarks on an overhaul of its health care system, Britain’s government-run system is showing signs of ageLONDON — In early September, Julie Bailey was settling into her new home. Weeks before, she had been chased out of her town after a succession of death threats, the desecration of her mother’s grave and the collapse of her small business.

No, Bailey isn’t the star witness in a mob trial. She’s just an average British citizen who became a lightning rod for exposing failures of the country’s vaunted National Health Service after her mother died while in its care.

Founded in 1948 on the premise that health care should be made available to all without charge, the NHS remains a tremendous source of national pride. In Britain, the NHS is often described as the “envy of the world.” A vast bureaucracy boasting 1.7 million workers, it is the fifth-largest employer on the planet, according to the BBC. NHS workers are so esteemed that they’re treated to a wide range of discounts – in restaurants and hotels, for instance, and even for mobile phones – typically reserved in the United States for senior citizens and members of the military. When London hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics, the opening ceremony included a glitzy tribute to the health service, complete with a parade of dancing nurses.

Though the NHS has been subject to an endless stream of reorganizations and reforms over the decades whenever the government has transferred power, no prime minister – not even “Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher – has had the political will to make fundamental changes. As Nigel Lawson, chancellor of the exchequer under Thatcher, famously put it, “The NHS is the closest thing the English have to a religion.”

The Conservative government of David Cameron has enacted some modest reforms to the NHS since taking over in 2010, but the Tories made the calculation that in order to get elected they had to neutralize the health care issue by portraying themselves as protectors of the institution. So they have steered clear of radical changes.
