Barack Obama, our next President

Top Republican Calls For Replacing Obamacare With Obamacare

Republicans often face criticism opposing Obamacare but having no plan to replace it.
So Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has been tweeting about his replacement proposal: Let every American participate in the Federal Employee Health Benefits program.
"Federal employees have long enjoyed high-quality, affordable health care benefits through this free market, consumer based system," says Issa.
I'm not exactly sure what Issa means when he calls FEHBP a "free market" system. The system does set up a marketplace where private health insurers offer plans that have to meet certain specifications, and then individuals choose the plans they like best.
That's also true of the Obamacare exchanges, which Republicans do not tend to think are very "free market."
In fact, FEHBP is similar to the Obamacare exchanges in a lot of ways.
If insurers want to participate in the FEHBP, they can't exclude coverage for pre-existing conditions, just like Obamacare .
They have to accept applicants " without regard to age, race, sex, health status, or hazardous nature of employment." This is called guaranteed issue, and it's just like Obamacare.
They have to charge all applicants the same premium for a given plan. This is called community rating, and it's more restrictive of insurers than Obamacare , which allows for substantial premium variation based on age.
The key way that FEHBP differs from Obamacare now is that only federal employees can participate in it. Those federal workers have 75% of their plan premiums paid by the federal government, and their own 25% contribution is deductible on their federal tax return.
I asked Issa's office what financial support he would propose to help non-government workers buy FEHBP plans and haven't heard back yet. If he's going to heavily subsidize those purchases, then his plan will really look a lot like Obamacare.

----------

They're growing desperate.

Expect them to cave to Obama tomorrow.

What a wonderful day here in AZ on day II of the fed shutdown!! I took a ride up into the national forest (riding around their pathetic "Closed" sign), unmolested by other leftist deviate and phags. It still saddened me to see the lazy federal forest workers dont do their jobs and ick up year old trash, so I did it. More proof positive the current shutdown should be made permanent. Its now been proven; we dont NEED the workers furloughed, and States can take over the parks & monuments.

Get rid of the Fed, and leftist phags in general!!!

Republicans Grandstand At World War II Memorial Instead Of Working To Reopen It

WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress on Wednesday took down a barrier at an entrance to the World War II Memorial on the National Mall for the second day in a row, allowing veterans who had traveled there from out of state to visit the memorial built to honor their service.

Like all national parks, the World War II Memorial is technically closed, since the federal government has been shut down and many National Park Service employees have been furloughed. But just before 11:00 a.m., lawmakers removed the barriers on its southern end and allowed busloads of veterans and volunteers accompanying them on their trip to enter.

Ironically, most of them were among the most vocal members of the House's right flank that pushed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) toward a shutdown, and they are therefore partly responsible for the memorial's closure.

Of course you would say that.
But Obama actually lowered taxes in the stimulus bill.
So why were they protesting Obama. Why weren't they protesting Republican Congressmen & Senators that were voting yes yes yes under Bush? Cantor & Ryan etc.
This makes your premise a joke.

Effects of government shutdown seen across U.S.
Americans express shock and dismay as tourist attractions, social service agencies and other federally funded workplaces put many operations on hold.

"JOSHUA TREE, Calif.— In the high desert of California, they came for the cactuses and the contorted monzogranite formations, for the open space, for all the reasons so many have come before — to explore; to get married; simply to think.

But Joshua Tree National Park was closed Tuesday, indefinitely, so they gathered instead at a nearby cafe, to complain about their government.

"The government doesn't seem to care," said Rosie Rivera, manager of the Park Rock Cafe. "It's us, the people down here, who have to pay for their disagreements."

"They need to think about the people. Not themselves," said Al Valerio, who had driven to Joshua Tree with his wife.

Americans often complain that their government is out of touch. That has rarely seemed more true than on Tuesday, the first day that some pieces of the federal government machinery ground to a halt.

Polls showed that the first government shutdown in 17 years — prompted largely by continued efforts to block President Obama's healthcare law — was decidedly unpopular with the public. At the same time, the reach of the federal government was never more evident than when it suddenly disappeared."

Choked on your drunken puke!

Your body in the forest, bloated and stinky.

Waiting for a nice federal ranger to come back on line and scoop up your remains into her truck.

Health care was tested at the ballot box twice, then at the Supreme court. The tea bag Republicans lost every time, now instead of accepting that verdict they expect Obama to water down the scheme so its totally ineffective & call that a compromise. Just keep delaying it so it never happens. Then at the same time Fox news of course calls it "The Obama/Reid shutdown" well what would you expect. I'd say let them push it all the way and wait till the mid terms, then they will get another verdict.

Stop being so stupid, voters tweet to Congress

"WASHINGTON (AP)— The roiling debate over the U.S. government shutdown is extending to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as fed-up Americans turn to social media to register their disgust with federal lawmakers for shutting down the government.
Those posting pulled no punches, calling members of Congress "immature," ''stupid" and "idiots" who need to "grow up." There were a few attaboys, too, by self-described red-state conservatives who cheered on the Republican leadership's unwavering stance against President Barack Obama's health care plan, even if it meant suddenly pulling the paychecks of some 800,000 federal workers and threatening popular federal programs.
But mostly, tweeters said they couldn't understand why a compromise between the two sides seemed so elusive.
"#DearCongress, You should not be getting paid. In fact, you all should be fired!" tweeted Bruce Swedal, a 46-year-old Denver real estate agent who says he is worried about what the shutdown might do to home sales if federally backed loans dry up.
The public outcry playing out on social media sites this week is a new twist. During the last shutdown of government operations, in 1995, angry Americans would have had to look up their congressman's address and sit down and write an old-fashioned letter or email. But with the advent of Twitter, popular hashtags like #governmentshutdown and the NBC's "Today" show's #DearCongress let voters log their complaints to all 532 members of Congress at once (there are three vacancies in the House)— provided they stay within the allotted 140 characters or less."

UTC to furlough 4,000 workers if U.S. shutdown continues next week

""(Reuters)- United Technologies Corp (UTX) said it would be forced to furlough as many as 4,000 employees, if the U.S. government shutdown continues through next week.
The company expects to put nearly 2,000 employees out of work at its Sirkosky helicopter unit on Monday. The number could double through the week at its Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems businesses also get affected.
More than 5,000 employees may be on furlough if the shutdown continues into next month due to the absence of Defense Contract Management Agency inspectors who audit and approve manufacturing operations for military products, UTC said.
The federal government has come to a halt, except for essential services, after Congress was unable to reach an agreement on funding for the new fiscal year because of a standoff over healthcare reforms.""

“The president reiterated one more time tonight that he will not negotiate,” Boehner told reporters after the meeting."

----------

The nitwits thought they could roll Obama, like they did in the first term.

Things are different now, the Repugnants eager to end the Shutdown are growing by the hour.

Bonehead will be forced to allow an up or down vote.

This will be the last gasp of the radicals on the Teabag right.

Saner heads will take over after the Repugnants are humiliated.
