Barack Obama, our next President

Bill aka William Ayers is using the excuse 'he was off his meds' to answer every question about O'bama--maybe O'bama should answer the same way when he makes truthful comments--Wait....O'bama has never been off his meds. He suffers from depression. He wants the rest of you to suffer from depression also. Medicate the masses.

No free health care for illegal immigrants in the health bill
It may be the longest chain e-mail we've ever received. A page-by-page analysis of the House health care bill argues that reform will end the health care system as we know it: "Page 29: Admission: your health care will be rationed!... Page 42: The 'Health Choices Commissioner' will decide health benefits for you. You will have no choice.... Page 50: All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services."
Most of the e-mail's claims are wrong, and you can read our extended analysis to find out why.
One of its most bizarre claims is the one about free health care for noncitizens, "illegal or not."
We read the bill and its legislative summary, and could find nothing about free health care for anyone, much less noncitizens.
To confirm our examination, we turned to Jennifer Tolbert, an independent health care analyst at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan foundation that studies health care reform. Tolbert has read and analyzed all the major health proposals, including those of the Republicans, and the foundation provides point-by-point analyses of the plans on its Web site.
"No one's provided with free health care. That's ridiculous," she said.
Page 50, which the e-mail references, is part of Section 152, which includes a generic nondiscrimination clause saying that insurers may not discriminate with regard to "personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services."
The section says nothing about "non-US citizens" or immigrants, legal or otherwise. In fact, the legislation specifically states that "undocumented aliens" will not be eligible for credits to help them buy health insurance, in Section 246 on page 143.
The bottom line here is the e-mail is making things up. The bill does not say anything close to "All non-US citizens, illegal or not, will be provided with free health care services." We rate this chain e-mail statement Pants on Fire!

listen the great O'bama is pushing illegal status to legal status because his healthcare is falling apart. If you think the illegals are not going to be treated, you are dumber than I think you are. Do you think the liberals are going to let the illegals die in the street? maybe.

"let's hire a bunch of retarded, unemployable chimps that cant tie their own shoe laces to staff a new government boondoggle. Since we cant fund it, let's steal the money from someone who was successful".
Look who got hired to create the website, the same know nothing that is being paid millions more to fix it. And guess what, he's a huge Obammy campaign donor. Is anyone surprised?

"Obama donor’s firm hired to fix Web mess it created

WASHINGTON — A tech firm linked to a campaign-donor crony of President Obama not only got the job to help build the federal health-insurance Web site — but also is getting paid to fix it.

Anthony Welters, a top campaign bundler for Obama and frequent White House guest, is the executive vice president of UnitedHealth Group, which owns the software company now at the center of the ObamaCare Web-site fiasco.

UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Quality Software Services Inc.(QSSI), which built the data hub for the ObamaCare system, has been named the new general contractor in charge of repairing the glitch-plagued HealthCare.gov .

Welters and his wife, Beatrice, have shoveled piles of cash into Obama’s campaign coffers and ­apparently reaped the rewards.

Beatrice Welters bundled donations totaling between $200,000 and $500,000 for Obama’s campaign during the 2008 election ­cycle, according to campaign-­finance data compiled by Center for Responsive Politics.

SICK CALL: Obama bundler Anthony Welters’ firm owns the company picked to repair the health Web site.

The couple then became top donors for Obama’s inauguration festivities, kicking in $100,000 out of their own pockets and bundling another $300,000 from friends and business associates, according to the center.

The investments quickly paid off for Beatrice Welters. The Obama administration tapped her in 2009 for the plum job of US ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, which she held through last November.

The couple have been frequent guests at the White House.

Visitors logs show at least a dozen visits between the two by the end of 2012, the most recent information available.

The entire Welters family has gotten into the donation game.

The Welters, along with their sons, Andrew and Bryant, have contributed more than $258,000 to mostly Democratic candidates and committees since 2007.

What’s more, UnitedHealth Group is one of the largest health-insurance companies in the country and spent millions lobbying for ObamaCare.

The insurance giant’s purchase of QSSI in 2012 raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill, but the tech firm nevertheless kept the job of building the data hub for the ObamaCare Web site where consumers buy the new mandatory health-­insurance plans.

QSSI has been paid an estimated $150 million so far, but officials couldn’t say how much more the company might collect on the ­repair contract.

By all accounts, the data hub has run smoothly while many other components of the Web site have failed.

Meanwhile, tempers flared among Obama’s Democratic allies over the disastrous rollout of the president’s signature initiative.

“I’m extraordinarily frustrated,” said Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.)­after top Obama-administration officials gave Senate Democrats a private briefing on the state of the Web-site repairs.

He said they were losing confidence the site could be quickly fixed.

“I don’t think there’s confidence by anyone in the room. This is more of a show-me moment,” said Merkley."

Many doctors have already announced that will not accept O'bamacare patients because they would go bankrupt if they did. The government's payout on medical services rendered to patients in these groups is a total joke, you see: doctors sometimes receive only 30% of what they actually billed. And they can't negotiate, either. The government simply tells you what you "get" to receive in terms of payment, regardless of how much you actually billed as a doctor. 30% won't pay their rent or staff to do the O'bamacare paper work. What do you think is going to happen?

Bullshittery! 5 billion is set aside for migrant workers and their families it doesn't identify them as 'illegals' so we have a play with words a legal technicality lol. Don't you hate lawyers double speak?

It's also illegal for a doctor or hospital to ask if a potential patient is of legal status did you know that little gem?

Once the migrant and his families members tell their extended families about the FREE healthcare bonus do you think more or less will come into our country? Why do you think they are pushing legalization of these people? Why did California suggest aliens should be able to serve on juries?

Informed people have known that there are options in the ACA exchanges.

You can get lower cost policies with higher deductibles & co-pays or buy a policy with lower deductibles & copays.

My God, Flack, what took you so long to figure that out.

In Defense of Obama’s Drone War

By Charles Krauthammer

Once you take up arms against the United States, you become an enemy combatant, thereby forfeiting the privileges of citizenship and the protections of the Constitution, including due process. You retain only the protection of the laws of war — no more and no less than those of your foreign comrades-in-arms.

Lincoln steadfastly refused to recognize the Confederacy as a separate nation. The soldiers that his Union Army confronted at Antietam were American citizens (in rebellion)— killed without due process. Nor did the Americans storming German bunkers at Normandy inquire before firing if there were any German-Americans among them — to be excused for gentler treatment while the other Germans were mowed down.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/340747...

so i like drones. they don't drain the treasury in such a way that we can lay it back on the next POTUS, and we don't lose 4,000 troops, after 'Mission Accomplished', in the process.
