Therefore, It’s Constitutionally Prohibited

Editor’s Note: Of all the mandates in the Constitution, there is only one that is repeated twice: direct taxes must be apportioned. Judge Roberts has admitted this. Writing for the majority in the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, Roberts confessed direct taxes “must be apportioned among the states.” To avoid this constitutional restraint, Roberts falsely declared Obamacare’s individual mandate is not a tax on the ownership of personal property and “is thus not a direct tax that must be apportioned among the several states.” The decision is erroneous. Most troubling is the fact that both the majority and the dissent refused to deal honestly with the issue of direct taxes.

<quoted text> O'bama was made aware of the problems the site had in functionality months ago. That the site went live when it wasn't ready is because that's what he wanted. Failure wasn't an option, because any delays would be a political win for the other side, you see, and we can't have that. O'bama and the democrats can't be bothered with worrying about the American people and what is good for them.
IF O'bama's behavior during the government shutdown - ordering sites, memorials and parks closed to American taxpayers and veterans - and this push to have an obviously non-operable site up and running doesn't prove how petty and petulant this president is, nothing will.
O'bama is a paranoid freak.
Obama would be better off trying to sell ShamWows with the free set of steak knives if you order within 15 minutes.

The ObammyCare website's super-busted, and is likely to remain that way for some time. But you know that already, and so does President Obama -- which is why he channeled the ShamWow guy during his surreal Obamacare pep rally earlier this week, pumping an 800-number as an alternative to the online exchanges. Operators are standing by, and all that.

At least it's something, right? Well, the Washington Post's liberal Wonk Blog notices a small problem with Obama's old-fashioned Plan B. It doesn't work either:

In conversations this afternoon with the call center, I was repeatedly told that I could not enroll in coverage over the phone. "The only thing we can do is submit an application for you," one call-center representative told me. "We can't purchase anything for you." "No, you cannot do that," another one said, when I told her I had completed my application and would like to enroll in a specific plan.

You can ring up the Obamacare hotline, pray to get an actual person on the line, and submit an application. But you cannot actually enroll. Why not?

The second [step in enrollment] is eligibility verification: Healthcare.Gov needs to double-check that the shopper is the person they say they are, that they live in the right state and that have reported their income accurately. A computer system does this part; a call-center agent cannot. The last step is enrollment: picking a specific plan and paying the first month's premium. That payment goes to the insurance plan of the shopper's choosing, not to HealthCare.Gov , which helps explain why the call center cannot accept shoppers' payments.

Basically, the call centers ultimately rely on the busted computer system, too. Plus, it's pretty much impossible to "browse" various options and prices over the phone. Yet the president directed millions of Americans to dial the 1-800 number, assuring them that they could speak with an agent and sign up in less than 30 minutes.

Here's someone trying for 4 1/2 hours:

After a total of four-and-a-half hours on the phone with Obamacare's navigators (in addition to five hours spent online), he's still looking for answers. How many young, healthy people will endure this nonsense, especially if they're going to end up paying more?

Gross mismanagement doesn't state the problem with enough severity. Per Sibelius, OBAMA DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE that the website had so many problems. How in the world do thou think that he had any inkling that the phone number and call center support would s#ck as well?

It appears that Ted Cruz & Mike Lee were right and the MSM, Democrats and RINO's were wrong. Now there's a surprise.

How about an 800 # for people who don't want Obamacare, or, just want him to go away.

"Oh, hi, yes, I called because I DON'T want Obamacare, AND I want Obama to get out of my life, yes, ok, that's it? I'm signed up? Great! Thanks!!!"

House Dem Rips GOP's Hearing As 'Monkey Court'
During the House Energy and Commerce Committee's hearing on 's launch, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) ripped the hearing as a "monkey court" used by his Republican colleagues to bash the Affordable Care Act.
He seized on a line of questioning from Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), who suggested that the private health information of Americans was at risk because of the website's poor design.
"I started out in my opening statement saying there was no legitimacy to this hearing and the last line of the questioning certainly confirms that. HIPAA only applies when there's health information being provided," Pallone said. "That's not in play here today. No health information is required in the application process. And why is that? Because pre-existing conditions don't matter. So once again, here we have my Republican colleagues trying to scare everybody."
"If the gentleman will yield..." Barton interjected.
"No, I will not yield to this monkey court or whatever," Pallone barked.
"This is not monkey court," Barton objected.
"Do whatever you want. I am not yielding," Pallone said.
monkey, kangaroo, all the same.
So the democrats and their statement of monkey court must now realize the chief monkey is O'bama. Well now...we are getting somewhere with the analogy of Monkey and the democrats.

Then explain why he enrolled at Occidental as Barry Soetoro?
Explain why his mother calls him Barry Soetoro in the letter she wrote to her employer Ford Foundation requesting use of travel benefits for dependent children in 1981 when Obama somehow went to Pakistan while it was on the US State Department's "no travel" list.
Did Barry Soetoro travel under an Indonesian or UK passport on that trip? He very obviously couldn't have gone to Pakistan with a US passport.
And, how did the name "Barack Obama" get on that list you posted here of supposed graduates from Columbia, since Occidental and his mother knew him as Barry Soetoro?
It would require a conspiracy to put "Barrack Hussein Obama" on a list of graduates from Columbia. It would require a conspiracy to promote the lie that Obama actually attended classes at Columbia. It would require a conspiracy to get a college dropout from Occidental who never attended classes at Columbia admitted to Harvard.
... like the Communist Party USA engages in all the time.
He was not at Occidental under the name Barry Soetoro. By the time he went to Occidental, he had lived as Barack Obama in Hawaii for 6 years.

His mother was working in Indonesia where Barack went under his step father's last name. If she did actually use that name it would because that was how he was listed when she first got that job.

Your statement that no one knew Obama as a student at Columbia is a lie.

You tale is so full of holes, you can't even make a viable argument.

Obamacare hearings: Oversight or heckling?
There’s congressional oversight that answers everyone’s most urgent questions — and then there’s just heckling from the partisan peanut gallery.
Over the next few weeks, Republicans are going to have to decide which path they’re going to take as they open hearings into the broken Obamacare website.
There’s a wealth of real questions to be answered at the hearings, starting with Thursday’s testimony by a group of contractors that worked on the website. What, exactly, went wrong with the development of the federal health insurance exchange? Who dropped the ball? And can it actually be patched up on the fly?
(Understanding Obamacare: A guide to the ACA)
Those are the most urgent questions that will be on lawmakers’ minds at the House Energy & Commerce Committee hearing Thursday and the others that will follow. The problem is, the hearings will be run by the same House Republicans who don’t even want the law in the first place, and have gone through 40-plus repeal votes and a politically disastrous government shutdown to prove it.
So Republicans have a lot to prove in the hearings. They can use the investigative powers of Congress pry out the answers to the serious questions that everyone has about the website — Democrats as well as Republicans — and repair their standing with the public by showing how thoughtful oversight ought to be done.
Or they can spend the whole time yelling,“BOOOOO! This is never going to work.”
so far...heckling.
that will really fix their poll problem.
Figures spammer, that you post nonsense.

Carson said he was glad to hear six Democrat Senators (Shaheen, Pryor, Begich, Landrieu, Nelson, Manchin) are now supporting a delay of ObamaCare’s Individual Mandate. He said people need to put their pride and egos aside and do what’s best for the country to truly solve the Health Care problems. Carson called for returning Health Care to patients and Health Care Providers, rather than being focused on the Government and Insurance Companies.

Carol, according to Panetta's testimony the White House was getting regular updates. So why would the President need to call him about updates he was already getting?
"Did you have any further communications with him that night?” Ayotte asked Panetta.

“No,” said Panetta.

“Did you have any other further communications? Did he ever call you that night to say how are things going, what’s going on, where’s the consulate?” asked Ayotte.

“No,” said Panetta.“But we were aware as we were getting information about what was taking place there, particularly when we got information that the ambassador, his life had been lost, we were aware that that information went to the White House.”

“Did you communicate with anyone else at the White House that night?” asked Ayotte.

“No,” said Panetta.

“No one else called you to say: How are things going?” asked Ayotte.

“No,” said Panetta.

...Not exactly what you'd expect from a president who was engaged in the details of an attack and the unfolding events. He was aware the ambassador was dead. That's about it.

CANT TRUST IT proof that the pregnant blogger who supposedly fainted during President Obama’s speech in the Rose Garden was part of a publicity stunt. Blogger Patriot Lady put together an interesting video that shows exactly how the fainting lady stunt went down.

You be the judge.

It is obvious that there are quite a few people involved in this latest fraud put out by the Whitehouse. Why did Obama think it was necessary to “catch” a fainting woman just when he said the words,“To free families from the pervasive fear that one illness….” And down she went? Well not actually down. She just weaved and wobbled a little and never quite fainted. And, consequently, Obama never actually caught her. He turned around and put his hand on her shoulder as if to steady her and turned back to the camera to make sure it got a clear shot of his “rescue” efforts.

You will see in the following video that the pregnant woman is standing with a friend who is holding her hand with her arm wrapped around her waist. That is until she starts to “faint”. Then she steps slightly aside and never even looks at the women she is holding. She smiles a nervous smile for the camera because she has done her part in this extremely poorly orchestrated drama.

Why would they come up with this transparent attempt to manipulate the low information voters? Who knows? Did it make anyone feel warm and fuzzy for our hero President? Probably. There are a lot of idiots out there. Did it take the focus off the disastrous website? I don’t think so. Whatever the reason was that Obama and his advisers had to dream up this silly scheme it certainly smacks of desperation. If I was him I would fire them all. But, who knows? As stupid as this idea was, it could have been his. Maybe he’ll fire himself.
