ObamaCare: More Than Just Your Health – It’s Your Job

patriotic 212x300 ObamaCare: More than Just Your Health   Its Your Job

A powder keg of free enterprise is arming.  Caught off guard by the media, the president admits there is evidence his insurance plan has major problems forcing the extension due date for American business compliance to 2015.

The fact that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is in trouble is no surprise for those warning what the push back would be, and specifically expressed by those in the medical and business communities.

The president’s extension appears to do nothing more than stay, who will be laid off, who will have a full time job, who will become one of the new part-time work force, and who will end up in one of the managed Medicaid insurance exchanges.

According to Investors Business Daily, even “local governments across the country have been quietly doing exactly the same thing – cutting part-time hours specifically so they can skirt ObamaCare’s costly employer mandate, while complaining about the law in some of the harshest terms anyone has uttered in public.”

In a July 6th interview on Fox Americas News, small business owner Richard Clark, of Supreme Janitorial, with dignity, made it clear the president and those who voted for Obamacare have “no concept what a small business goes through,” and the insurance implementation was one of “incompetence.”

Clark must now decide how many of the 150 people in his employ may be switched to 29 hours along with the countries 41% of businesses overall, who have already put a freeze on hiring.

One has to question: was the Treasury Department’s recommendation to extend the date, as reported by the media, a legitimate funding setback, a government inefficiency to implement, or. . .a Chicago-style ruse to delay as much of the push-back by the business community and affected employees, until after the midterm election held November 4, 2014, keeping the president’s party afloat?

Even now, President Barack Obama begins an outreach push called Enroll America to inform the public on how the Affordable Care Act will work, and believing once you understand it . . . you’ll love it.  Haven’t we Americans heard this all before?

Due to the extension, tax penalty receivables the president assumed would help fund his “baby” project in 2014 will fall short in the federal cash register, 10 billion dollars – according to the Congressional Budget Office.  This may be why Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is pounding the beat looking for private money.

Ten billion apparently is insignificant for a man who lives in the world of “trillion dollar” spending.  His program is “amok” with serious issues, which should have been properly vetted rather than pushed through without knowing all the facts and what’s capable of coming down the pike.  Such action might be termed economic insanity.

Who will pay the price?

Again, it looks like you the American taxpayer – on the job front, or out of your pocket, for a program three-times larger than the IRS Tax Code, and longer than the Bible.

It’s up to you. . .the balls in your court.




U.S Taxpayer To Pay Obamacare Costs For The States

Obamacare To Die For Shipping SC U.S Taxpayer to Pay Obamacare Costs for the States

This column should be about common sense.  Today’s substance is another ill-favored pill the American taxpayer may find difficult to swallow, as the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) attempts to roll out its insurance exchanges.

Unless something changes before the first of October, 31 states are using the loophole provided courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing sovereign States to opt out from the program, shifting the burden from State tax dollars to U.S. taxpayers across the country.

It is becoming apparent that these exchanges (the central nervous system of the nation’s new health care system) are becoming problematic, as now the Federal government will be forced to step in to create the exchanges in states like Illinois, fund them, and — the frightening part — operate them. Other states will opt out, choosing to pass legislation to cover their people without the need for Obamacare.

Apparently, Washington’s assumption of widespread acceptance is wrong.  The President and the Democrats who passed the Affordable Care Act failed to understand how behavioral patterns would affect the program’s success.

According to a Fox News poll done by Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) between June 22nd and June 24th,  66% of worried voters are not reassured by the president’s actions or words. And 58% want the program repealed.

Twenty four percent of employers will force employees to go to part-time.  Doctors and clinics, since the initial phase back in June of 2010, are phasing out their connection to Medicaid, the avenue in which the exchanges are to be administered at the State level. This puts the Feds at an enormous disadvantage with the need for more help and more money.

The Obama administration appears to be proving that big government doesn’t work, even with one of the biggest contributors forced into stabilizing Obamacare (the Seniors, who will be footing the bill to the tune of $45 billion in benefit cuts per year over the next decade according to the Congressional Budget Office.)

Is the Obamacare hodgepodge explosion yet to come?  Must we fasten our seat belts and hang on, hoping we are not affected too negatively?

Or, can our legislators do what they should have done and listen to the medical experts (and the people who would man the trenches) and balance the budgets? Mr. President, this will not work like you think; and that, sometimes, is the problem – one thinks!















Freedom Of Speech Is Alive And Well; Political Fairness Is Not

Mitt Romney speech 4 SC Freedom of Speech is Alive and Well; Political Fairness is Not

Wow!   The President’s ideology of fairness and a level playing field is running amok in this 2012 election campaign against his opponent.  Perhaps his administration has been influenced by the witches, goblins, and devils prematurely celebrating a trickster’s Halloween.

Though few in number, Chicago journalist Walter Jacobsen offers the president a “spade for his BS digging” while the Washington Post and others take the president to task for dazzling the electorate with bull and political doublespeak Native Americans might say is cow “hoya.”

Legendary newsman Tom Brokaw reports that it’s about time the “president accept responsibility” for the economy, . . . and the mess of his theoretic baby.  And yes, his baby is long overdue for a diaper change.

“It’s not what we don’t know that gives us trouble; it’s what we know that ain’t so, so long as it is happening to someone else,” according to Democrat”Will Rogers.”

Why is Mitt Romney unlikeable?  Easy . . . he scares the sorry butts off the opposition.

As one voter said: He is drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura, . . .the likes of every central casting’s #1 choice Commander-in-Chief.  Now tell me he doesn’t appeal to women.

How often do we find a candidate with no scandals or skeletons?  Perhaps he is perceived too square for today’s America.  He represents the exceptionalism of the Constitution-bound, free-market America of our forefathers . . .not the sociopolitical assertions of Mid-Eastern and European ways of life.

Pundits hate him because of his wealth.  Probably because he earned those green-backs himself.  He didn’t marry into it, and what he inherited was fully donated to charity.

Since when does working for your dream and taking risks become an unpalatable societal crime?  The only place I know of is on the Hill and in the White House.

President Obama boasts a 90% success rate, while Mitt Romney “has” a verifiable 80% turnaround rate of Domino’s, Sealy, Brookstone, the Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, and Home Depot Supply to mention a few.

Presidents don’t get points for trying.  Democrat Will Rogers in his philosophical humor questioned and answered himself: “. . .who started the idea that a President must be a Politician instead of a Business man.  A Politician can’t run any other kind of business.  So there is no reason why he can run the U.S.  That’s the biggest single business in the World. . .”

I choose to believe, as Senator Marco Rubio does, that we are people who have made it and people who will make it.  This election is a ” liberty” choice about who we are and what we stand for, not the crippling wants of an American society.

For it is We the People who are the true treasures of America with a distinctive human desire to be free and create our own destinies, known and unknown, unencumbered by the leftist ideologies of BIG government.  And that’s the unfiltered story!

Does Romney Scare Obama?

President Obama face WH photo SC Does Romney Scare Obama?

An overwhelming 75% of voters according to a Gallup poll don’t view Mitt Romney’s wealth as an election problem, believing the U.S. benefits from having a rich-class and would like to be rich themselves, writes Gallup’s Frank Newport.  But . . .

To President Barack Obama, “rich” appears to be a dirty word.  He continues to demonize the success of wealth accumulation, trampling and verbally degrading the dignity of the American dream . . .the freedom to walk the golden-paved roads of opportunity that leads to wealth.

What is the president’s campaign’s justification when he insists that Americans can’t have a culture that incurs selfishness?

Does he mean the selfishness of wealth built on individual sweat-equity and achievement,  an individual willingness to risk all, or a charitable heart giving to those who have fallen on less fortunate times?  Or was he touting class warfare attempting to paint his opponent Mitt Romney as a selfish rich man?

One might ask the modern day father of welfare: how should God approve the handling of his desire to rob Peter and gift the robbery to Paul, from those who have earned it to those who have no right to it?  Is it to curry favor, perhaps a vote?

To say Romney is not compassionate is absurd.  The existence of the wealthy class is why the greatness of America exists, along with the ingenuity, guts, and brawn of its citizenry, the ilk of our founding fathers.

Are voters being fair in their analysis of Obama’s fodder of Mitt Romney?  In the past two years, the Romneys have given $7 million dollars to charity plus $2 million in non-cash contributions and paid Uncle Sam $6.2 million in federal taxes; in addition, they maintain a renewable $10 million dollar foundation given away annually.

The president continues attacking the cogs in the wheel of American success, you the taxpayer, when he attempts to berate individual initiative, stating you didn’t become successful on your own. You didn’t make things happen; somebody else did.

The president has it backwards. It was a new breed of people seeking freedom who gave birth to a government, as President Abraham Lincoln states in his Gettysburg Address, “for the people, and by the people.” 

This is America, where entrepreneurs have earned the right to the profits from their endeavors of long days, haunting uncertainty, sleepless nights, and the capitalization of their own invested money after paying suppliers, bankers, and salaries and reinvesting back into the future of Americans they employ and those they don’t.

With wealth comes the wisdom of experience and the accumulation of individual power, the kind in this election year that could prevent the president from using his position to change America into a European state of dependency and welfare.

The Jews never thought the holocaust would happen, Americans never envisioned a 9.11, and the president never expected an opponent like Mitt Romney, who actually has a verifiable record of success.
