Obama Plans Return to Politics – Wants to ‘Change the World’

‘Change’? Doesn’t he really mean ‘destroy’?

By Rusty | 15 Sep 2017

Former President Barack Obama will remain on the sidelines no longer.

Obama will host a global summit this fall in Chicago aimed at inspiring and empowering people to “change the world.”

Wait a minute … Didn’t his slogan involve the word ‘change’ and didn’t he have eight full years to accomplish said change?

During his farewell address, Obama even said ‘mission accomplished.’

New Report: Obamacare Premiums Will Go Up AGAIN. 15 Percent Hike…

ObamacareHikes

By Kacie Burnett | 14 Sep 2017

We all know how much Obamacare is majorly sucking right now. Heck, even Billiam and his wife know it (see Bill Clinton Doubles Down, Reminds Voters How Much ObamaCare Sucks). Especially since certain promisers failed to repeal the mess as promised. Stings a little extra. Well this new report from the Congressional Budget Office cements in that suckage.

Obamacare premiums are projected to be on the rise once again:

Hillarycare would be even worse!

WND
By Laura Hollis | 27 October 2016

There is plenty of bad news about Obamacare. Premiums are set to skyrocket next year an average of 22 percent (a staggering 116 percent in Arizona). Of the 23 state co-ops that were originally set to operate, 16 have gone bankrupt, and the remaining seven are in dire financial straits. A significant number of major insurance companies, including UnitedHealthcare, Humana and Aetna, have pulled out of most (if not all) of the exchanges on the grounds that the financial losses are unsustainable. (Across the country, insurers have lost billions since 2014.) This leaves an increasing number of consumers with only one or two options to choose from. Most have lost plans and been forced – sometimes multiple times – into other plans, losing physicians in the process.

And there are plenty of writers (Kevin Williamson at National Review, Avik Roy at Forbes, Betsy McCaughey, yours truly) who are saying “we told you so.”

It isn’t gloating. We warned you. We shouted it from the rooftops. You were told that we were lying, or corporate shills, or that we wanted old people and sick people to die. To the contrary, we saw what was coming and wanted to avoid it.

Yes, there were – and are – legitimate concerns about people without insurance. But the rallying cry of Obamacare – “We have to do something!” – is precisely the wrong impulse. It is that self-imposed desperation that makes you targets for exploitation by every self-important ideologue, every liar, every charlatan.

That is why President Obama was able to lie to you over and over again about keeping your doctor and your plan, and get away with it.

It’s why Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber could brag about “the stupidity of the American voter,” and adviser Ezekiel Emanuel could argue in favor of bureaucratic rationing of health care, and get away with it.

It’s why Congress could pass a 2,000-page bill that not one of the members had read in its entirely, and why then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could infamously say, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it,” and get away with it.

Health Law Tax Penalty? I’ll Take It, Millions Say

NY Times
By ROBERT PEAR | Oct 26, 2016

The architects of the Affordable Care Act thought they had a blunt instrument to force people — even young and healthy ones — to buy insurance through the law’s online marketplaces: a tax penalty for those who remain uninsured.

It has not worked all that well, and that is at least partly to blame for soaring premiums next year on some of the health law’s insurance exchanges.

The full weight of the penalty will not be felt until April, when those who have avoided buying insurance will face penalties of around $700 a person or more. But even then that might not be enough: For the young and healthy who are badly needed to make the exchanges work, it is sometimes cheaper to pay the Internal Revenue Service than an insurance company charging large premiums, with huge deductibles.

“In my experience, the penalty has not been large enough to motivate people to sign up for insurance,” said Christine Speidel, a tax lawyer at Vermont Legal Aid.

Some people do sign up, especially those with low incomes who receive the most generous subsidies, Ms. Speidel said. But others, she said, find that they cannot afford insurance, even with subsidies, so “they grudgingly take the penalty.”

The I.R.S. says that 8.1 million returns included penalty payments for people who went without insurance in 2014, the first year in which most people were required to have coverage. A preliminary report on the latest tax-filing season, tabulating data through April, said that 5.6 million returns included penalties averaging $442 a return for people uninsured in 2015.

Admin Confirms: Barack Obama’s “Affordable” Care Act Spikes into Double Digits

Louder With Crowder
By Courtney Kirchoff | Tuesday October 25 2016

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.

All lies. Because surprise, the ObamaCare disaster train rolls on. It’s coming for you, your family, your pet dog. It would’ve taken your goldfish had you not flushed it down the toilet. Lucky bastard took the easy way out.

Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.

A 25% rate increase. I bolded so you wouldn’t miss it. To lessen the sticker-shock come 2017. What were you going to do with that “disposable” income anyway? Car payment? Groceries? Your rent/mortgage? Wow, aren’t you spoiled. There are people across the world who live in huts, you know. Best you start prioritizing your “health” or pay the penalty. The penalty in this case is called the “shared responsibility tax.” The Obama Administration has a way with the words. They did christen this little number “affordable.”

Insurance company won’t pay for woman’s chemo treatments

The Blaze

But physician-assisted suicide pills are approved

packer-family

“Compassion and Choice DENIED,” a recently released documentary, demonstrates how California’s new law allowing terminally ill patients access to end-of-life drugs could be opening the door for insurance companies to deny treatment to patients with serious illnesses.

The 15-minute documentary produced by the Center for Bioethics and Culture tells the story of Stephanie Packer, a terminally ill mom who wants to stay alive as long as possible to be an example for her four young children.

According to Packer, her insurance company appears to prefer she give up the fight and chose assisted suicide instead.

Packer suffers from a form of Scleroderma complicated with pulmonary fibrosis. Normally, Scleroderma would not be a terminal condition. Unfortunately, Packer’s diffuse form of the disease has invaded her lungs, causing the pulmonary fibrosis.

Last summer, shortly after California’s assisted suicide law went into effect, Packer was told by her insurance company the chemotherapy drug prescribed by her doctor would not be covered.

The Evil That Is George Soros PT 2

race_baiter_rgb_ben_garrisonLook who’s behind ‘Voter ID is racist’ campaign

A radical group funded by billionaire George Soros that has a history of biased research is primarily behind a national campaign to paint voter ID laws as racist.
The voter ID data collected by the group, the Brennan Center for Justice, has been called into question by experts and has been contradicted by other credible studies. Yet the center’s information is cited widely by news media and even members of the Obama administration.

UN Internet agenda tied to George Soros

Frank La Rue, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression who made summer headlines when he proclaimed Internet access as a basic human right, conducted his research and delivered his conclusions with the support of organizations funded by liberal financier George Soros, The Daily Caller has learned.
La Rue’s statements on Internet freedom caused alarm among conservatives who believe “net neutrality” is a vehicle for a government takeover of the Internet.

The Evil That Is George Soros

sorosenemyGeorge Soros

New York hedge fund manager George Soros is one of the most politically powerful individuals on earth. Since the mid-1980s in particular, he has used his immense influence to help reconfigure the political landscapes of several countries around the world—in some cases playing a key role in toppling regimes that had held the reins of government for years, even decades. Vis à vis the United States, a strong case can be made for the claim that Soros today affects American politics and culture more profoundly that any other living person.

Much of Soros’s influence derives from his $13 billion personal fortune,1 which is further leveraged by at least another $25 billion in investor assets controlled by his firm, Soros Fund Management.2 An equally significant source of Soros’s power, however, is his passionate messianic zeal. Soros views himself as a missionary with something of a divine mandate to transform the world and its institutions into something better—as he sees it.

George Soros, billionaire investor, kicked in a quick $6 million for one of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s super PACs, suggesting through a spokesperson he’s always liked how accessible the former secretary of state has proven for him.

Hillary Says She’s Not In ‘Anyone’s Pocket’ After Taking $6 Million From George Soros

On CBS This Morning she said that “anyone who knows me knows that I am not in the pocket of anyone”. Her statement immediately caused the CBS panel to break into laughter while she was still speaking. Funnier still is the fact that last month she and her super-PAC happily accepted $6 million from former Nazi collaborator George Soros. Hmm, not in anyone’s pocket, eh?

ObamaCare rates in MN skyrocket 60% to stave off “collapse”

Hot Air

Seems that Washington DC isn’t the only place that’s learned the art of the Friday afternoon news dump. Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman announced yesterday afternoon that the state had approved health insurance premium increases that will average 60% in MNsure, the state’s ObamaCare exchange. The statement blamed big losses by insurers in the state, and bad predictions about utilization rates, for the decision.
