Barack Obama, our next President

House GOP Defunds ACORN Yet Again, Even Though ACORN Does Not Exist
Conservative political groups targeted ACORN for years, accusing the anti-poverty group, which typically backed liberal policies aiding the poor, of broad voter fraud conspiracies that were ultimately never substantiated. But in the fall of 2009, conservative videographer James O'Keefe released selectively edited videos that appeared to show ACORN employees offering advice on tax avoidance related to prostitution and child smuggling. Independent investigations by the California attorney general, the Massachusetts attorney general and the Brooklyn, N.Y., district attorney would later clear ACORN of criminal wrongdoing, and an investigation by the Government Accountability Office would clear the group of charges that it mishandled federal funds.

Which means lowering the costs of health care.
The spotlight should be directly on the health profession itself. They've become bandits getting away with highway robbery.
Unless and until we all confess we see the pink elephant, we're going to keep chasing our tails in trying to fix the health care problem.
And hospitals and clinics are laughing all the way to the bank.
You see Pink Elephants?

Detroit Looks to Health Law to Ease Costs

By MONICA DAVEY and ABBY GOODNOUGH

Published: July 28, 2013 620 Comments

As Detroit enters the federal bankruptcy process, the city is proposing a controversial plan for paring some of the $5.7 billion it owes in retiree health costs: pushing many of those too young to qualify for Medicare out of city-run coverage and into the new insurance markets that will soon be operating under the Obama health care law.

Officials say the plan would be part of a broader effort to save Detroit tens of millions of dollars in health costs each year, a major element in a restructuring package that must be approved by a bankruptcy judge. It is being watched closely by municipal leaders around the nation, many of whom complain of mounting, unsustainable prices for the health care promised to retired city workers.

Similar proposals that could shift public sector retirees into the new insurance markets, called exchanges, are already being planned or contemplated in places like Chicago; Sheboygan County, Wis.; and Stockton, Calif. While large employers that eliminate health benefits for full-time workers can be penalized under the health care law, retirees are a different matter.

“There’s fear and panic about what this means,” said Michael Underwood, 62, who retired from the Chicago Police Department after 30 years and has diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. Mr. Underwood, who says he began working for the city when employees did not pay into future Medicare coverage, is part of a group suing Chicago over its plan to phase many retirees out of city coverage during the next three and a half years.“I was promised health care for myself and my wife for life,” he said.

Neo Cons are Former Pseudo Liberals too and no different than the Modern Pseudo Liberals that identify themselves as Liberals.

Many older neocons had been liberals in their youth and admired President Franklin D. Roosevelt, while younger neocons are more economically conservative than Roosevelt but like to downplay the social issues.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed the books on 2012 with $33.4 million in unallocated cash on hand — down from $167 million the year before — while adding to the mountain of debt piled on Chicago taxpayers, year-end audits show.

Last week, Moody’s Investors ordered an unprecedented triple-drop in the city’s bond rating, citing Chicago’s “very large and growing” pension liabilities,“significant” debt service payments,“unrelenting public safety demands” and historic reluctance to raise local taxes that has continued under Emanuel.

<quoted text>Another thing, Remember Social Security Act of 1935 was legistlated and is a US Federal Law and not a US Constitutional Amendment or Right to Welfare protected by the US Constitution which the Pseudo Liberal Democrats confuse intentionally which no where in the US Constitution does it says Social Security is a Right and which for that you would need an Amendment to the US Constitution so either way the Pseudo Liberal Democrat can reduce or eliminate or make Changes to Social Security as they want just as Obama is promoting & pushing for in his 2014 budget by linking Social Security to the CPI(consumer price index) which right now Social Security benefits would be cut drastically which means reduced and you are going to say obama cant do it you better wake up.

One last time....the Supreme Court ruled under Nestor that Social Security Recipients have a non-contractural right to benefits. This does not mean that Congress and the president can't raise or lower benefits if they can prove just cause. It just means that their actions are subject to the Due Process clause. Geez you are stupid.

Another Obama "speech tour" is over so he's off on another five-star resort vacation to wind down so he can gear up for the next one.
When was the last time he stayed in Washington and worked? No one else is going anywhere. Most people are working several part-time jobs just to make ends meet because of the crappy economy and all the Obamacare uncertainties.
But he must be plum worn out trying not to think about it.
There was a standing joke in a place I used to work at about how certain employees would work so hard at scheming to get out of doing the work before them that they actually ended up working harder at the avoidance of work than the work itself.

This is the Magic Negro.
