Jon Stewart Calls Out Employers Cheating Obamacare And Screwing Over Workers

As the dawn of Obamacare draws near, right-wing panic over the Affordable Care Act has reached a boiling point, with more lies and misconceptions about the law being tossed around to divert attention from its benefits. And on last night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart called out employers who are taking advantage of loopholes that allow them to cheat employees by paying a penalty rather than giving their workers a living wage.


A comedian tells it like it REALLY is. These repukes and their BIG CORPS work to scare Americans about Obamacare by these tactics. It won't work and they will pay in the end for it. Americans are figuring out what they are doing while making BILLIONS. It is the LAW. Suck it up. And like countrygirl so perfectly stated using your favorite slang....ObamaCare, romneycare what's the difference!

Obamacare has saved seniors 4.5 billion so far, over 5.5 million seniors and disabled people have benefitted.

Spending IS the problem. That is why we've spent $60,000,000.00+ on 41 unsuccessful attempts to repeal Obamacare.- GOP

You might be a RepubliCON:
If you think that Obamacare is Nazi Socialism, but thought Mitt Romney, the guy who invented it, should've been President.

Go nuts losers, you are just enraged at the facts I post everyday and I don't run at your filth and slander. I can dish it out as well.

Ted Cruz, Liberal Hero, May Have Just Bailed Washington Out Of The Shutdown Crisis

WASHINGTON -- In one moment, with one statement, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) managed Wednesday to accomplish what House GOP leaders, Republican senators and the Wall Street Journal editorial page had failed to do for months: Persuade rank-and-file House Republicans that shutting down the government in an attempt to defund Obamacare was simply impossible.

On Wednesday, after House leaders said they'd go forward with the defund strategy Cruz had been pitching with ads on Fox News, his response boiled down to 'Thanks, you're on your own.'

"Harry Reid will no doubt try to strip the defund language from the continuing resolution, and right now he likely has the votes to do so," Cruz said in a statement. "At that point, House Republicans must stand firm, hold their ground, and continue to listen to the American people."

On the surface, House Republicans were seething. Members openly accused Cruz and his allies, Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), of waving the white flag before the fight had even begun. One House GOP aide even called Cruz a "joke, plain and simple."

But by admitting that he had no ability in the Senate to back up the House effort to defund Obamacare, and saying so on the same day that House Republicans had announced they would support the Cruz-inspired strategy, Cruz has inadvertently done more than any other lawmaker to avert a government shutdown.

"Cruz officially jumped the shark this week," said one GOP operative allied with House leadership, who, like others, requested anonymity to speak critically about fellow Republicans. "He's doing for the House Leaders what they couldn't do for themselves. House rank-and-file members are uniting with Boehner, Cantor over Ted Cruz's idiotic position."

The retreat by Cruz has led to public questioning from House Republicans about his motives and political acumen, not to mention joking speculation that he may be part of a vast and devious liberal conspiracy to undermine conservatives.

"Cruz is the leader of a secret cabal of leftists that are seeking control of the conservative movement," quipped one senior House Republican leadership source. "Their aim is to force the party to take on suicidal missions to destroy the movement from within."

Another senior House GOP aide was grateful that Cruz had made plain what House leaders had been arguing for weeks -- that there was no viable strategy connected to a government shutdown that would defund Obamacare. "We can only defund Obamacare if it passes the Senate," the aide said. "If there is no plan to get the defunding provision passed in the Senate, or even a plan to fight to get it passed in the Senate, then what we’re talking about isn’t a plan to defund Obamacare -- it’s just a plan to shut down the government and hope for the best. That’s not a great plan."

That Cruz was left without any strategy at all, after demanding for months that Republicans follow his lead, feeds into the notion that the tea party is rooted more in political nihilism than any particular ethos, an argument Walter Sobchak would appreciate.

When asked by HuffPost Thursday to respond to his Republican critics in the House, Cruz said, "I salute the House Republicans for their fight on this." He added, "The House of Representatives, where Republicans have the majority -- the House has to drive this process."

He also thanked House leadership for their work on Wednesday, in an appearance on Fox News' "Hannity." With Lee by his side, Cruz pledged to continue the fight, likened himself to Winston Churchill, and noticeably put the onus to defund Obamacare on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)-- all with a straight face.

"As Churchill said, we will fight on the beaches, we will fight on the streets, we will fight at every step to stop the biggest job killer in America," Cruz said, adding later that "Harry Reid needs to listen to the American people just like John Boehner did."

For liberals, Cruz and the tea party have been the gift that keeps on giving. In both 2011 and 2012, tea party opposition staved off a "grand bargain" between Boehner and Obama that would have brought draconian cuts to Medicare and Social Security. In 2010 and again in 2012, the tea party pushed extreme Republicans through Senate primaries, where they subsequently lost winnable races in Delaware, Nevada, Colorado, Indiana and Missouri.

And they also brought Cruz to the Senate.

2-Bit Politicians In 8-Bit: Congress' Most Corrupt Lawmakers Treat Their Jobs Like A Game, So Let's Play

Politicians are not, by and large, a popular group of people. With the American public having chosen cockroaches over Congress in a recent popularity contest, our elected officials are only worsening the problem when they do bad and often illegal things.

Take the following politicians, named by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) as the most corrupt in Congress, for example. Abusing taxpayer funds isn't a game, but this is what it might look like if it was. Scroll down for 8-bit presentations of corrupt politicians, and be sure to click over to CREW's full 2013 report for more.

Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.)
Broun loaned his campaign money and claimed they were no-interest loans. When his campaign was later caught making "interest payments" to Broun, he altered his Federal Election Committee reports to change the source of the loans.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.)
Bachmann is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice for allegedly coordinating with a super PAC. She also may have used her presidential campaign to help sell her memoir, "Core of Conviction." Conviction. Aptly put.

Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska)
Aside from scrutiny for allegedly using campaign funds for personal use and not disclosing gifts, Young took earmarking to another level when he injected a $10 million handout into a transportation bill that would directly benefit a campaign contributor. He did this after Congress passed the bill, but before it made it to the president's desk.

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.)
Meeks is under federal investigation for receiving gifts and trips from non-profit groups with questionable backgrounds. One of these shady groups "lost track" of thousands of dollars intended for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (R-Ky.)
Rogers loves the Army. He loves it so much that he earmarked millions of dollars to a company in his home state of Kentucky could manufacture incredibly expensive items for it. Oh, and the manufacturer, Phoenix Products, has donated more than $35,000 to Rogers' campaigns.

Rep. David Valadao (R-Calif.)
Valadao kicked off his first term in Congress earlier this year by introducing an amendment to stop additions to a California high speed rail project. Hey, he's just a concerned citizen from a small town ... who owns a dairy company with his family ... and has land running alongside where the new track would go ... and failed to tell Congress that he has a financial stake in the decision. All aboard!

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.)
While he recently broke House rules by including video from floor proceedings in order to raise money for his reelection campaign, Grimm is most notorious for his relationship with Israeli businessman, Ofer Biton. Biton provided enormous donor assistance in 2010 by connecting Grimm with wealthy campaign contributors. When Grimm got elected, he returned the favor by helping Biton get a green card.

Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.)
Andrews doesn't mind spending the money people contribute to his political campaign on himself. The Democrat used campaign funds to fly his family to Scotland and California, and even to throw a high school graduation party. Andrews' is really just a family man -- he even earmarked more than $1.5 million for Rutgers University School of Law, where his wife works.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.)
When one of Bishop's constituents needed a fireworks permit for their son's bar mitzvah, the congressman sprung into action, getting the necessary permits, after the required deadline. A short while later, Bishop came knocking, asking the constituent to give his campaign $5,000 in return. L'Chayim!

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.)
Menendez is under investigation for using his position to help his good friend Salomon Melgen's business ventures. Melgen has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Menendez campaigns, and even flew Menendez around on his personal jet multiple times, which the good senator from New Jersey failed to disclose as gifts.

Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.)
Buchanan illegally used the employees of his car dealership to accept political contributions. He then pushed his former business partner to sign a false affidavit to keep himself from being implicated in the sheisty dealings. Now, he's an employee of the American taxpayer.

Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.)
A doctor prior to being elected to Congress, DesJarlais engaged in extra-marital affairs with two patients (prohibited in Tennessee). Despite running on an anti-abortion platform, he urged one to get an abortion, then later lied about recorded phone calls with those patients.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
McConnell has been accused of using public time and money to conduct political research on potential political opponents, namely actress Ashley Judd. McConnell denies any wrongdoing, but there's a recording of one of these meetings, where he and his staff can be heard discussing strategies for attacking Judd.


Mostly repukes but they ALL should be held accountable and there definitely is a need for TERM LIMITS for these CONS. Even the DEMS. Of course as you notice there are more CONS. I am sure the list could be longer.

The Crazy Party

Early this year, Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, made headlines by telling his fellow Republicans that they needed to stop being the “stupid party.” Unfortunately, Mr. Jindal failed to offer any constructive suggestions about how they might do that. And, in the months that followed, he himself proceeded to say and do a number of things that were, shall we say, not especially smart.

Nonetheless, Republicans did follow his advice. In recent months, the G.O.P. seems to have transitioned from being the stupid party to being the crazy party.

Today, by contrast, Republicans are coming off an election in which they failed to retake the presidency despite a weak economy, failed to retake the Senate even though far more Democratic than Republican seats were at risk, and held the House only through a combination of gerrymandering and the vagaries of districting. Democrats actually won the popular ballot for the House by 1.4 million votes. This is not a party that, by any conceivable standard of legitimacy, has the right to make extreme demands on the president.

Yet, at the moment, it seems highly likely that the Republican Party will refuse to fund the government, forcing a shutdown at the beginning of next month, unless President Obama dismantles the health reform that is the signature achievement of his presidency. Republican leaders realize that this is a bad idea, but, until recently, their notion of preaching moderation was to urge party radicals not to hold America hostage over the federal budget so they could wait a few weeks and hold it hostage over the debt ceiling instead. Now they’ve given up even on that delaying tactic. The latest news is that John Boehner, the speaker of the House, has abandoned his efforts to craft a face-saving climbdown on the budget, which means that we’re all set for shutdown, possibly followed by debt crisis.

So now we get to witness the hilarious spectacle of Karl Rove in The Wall Street Journal, pleading with Republicans to recognize the reality that Obamacare can’t be defunded. Why hilarious? Because Mr. Rove and his colleagues have spent decades trying to ensure that the Republican base lives in an alternate reality defined by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Can we say “hoist with their own petard”?

Of course, the coming confrontations are likely to damage America as a whole, not just the Republican brand. But, you know, this political moment of truth was going to happen sooner or later. We might as well have it now.

Morning Joe Panel Agrees: The GOP is Doomed… Again

The regular guests on MSNBC’s Morning Joe are in perfect agreement: the Republican Party is walking into a trap of its own making. The internecine feud within the GOP over whether to pursue a strategy of defunding the Affordable Care Act in the political fight over a continuing resolution to fund the government is, in the eyes of Morning Joe’s guests, a self-inflicted wound from which the GOP may never recover. Sure, the panel guests on Washington D.C.’s favorite morning show have predicted the imminent demise of the Republican Party in the past, but this time it’s different.

On Thursday, former Republican strategist and John McCain campaign veteran Nicole Wallace summoned every ounce of condescension in her power when she criticized the pro-defund Republicans by equating them with young children eager to run directly into oncoming traffic.

“When Republicans run into the street, despite the fact that there is a flashing red light, they will get hit by the cars and killed,” Wallace observed.“So, this is stupid politically.”

“We’re actually at a moment as Republicans where even Bernie Sanders has described our party has on the offense, and now we’ll let our party run into moving traffic against a red light? It’s idiotic,” she concluded.

The Republican Party may yet overreach and the fight over the CR and the subsequent battle over the increase in the debt ceiling just may deliver the party a significant, though not fatal, blow.

But this brinkmanship could also come to be seen as a deft political maneuver through the lens of posterity. While many political analysts can envision the circumstances which would result in both success and failure for the opposition party, the Morning Joe crew can only see doom in the GOP’s future.

Yep, DOOMED...

O’Reilly Clashes with Tea Party Head Over Defunding Obamacare:‘Not Going To Happen’

BIll O’Reilly admitted Thursday he sees no possible way Obamacare could possibly be defunded in the current political climate. Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer insisted it’s a cause worth fighting, but O’Reilly said so long as the Senate is held by the Democrats and President Obama is in the White House, a defunding of the president’s signature piece of legislation is not going to happen.

O’Reilly said any defunding attempt is “impossible,” especially considering the GOP’s understanding that independents will turn against them if the government shuts down. He called it “destructive” to the conservative cause, and was completely baffled by how she could possibly think defunding Obamacare would be successful. Kremer claimed that they could easily push red-state Democrats to their side.

Brad Blakeman agreed with O’Reilly, questioning how anyone could think Obama would just “wave the white flag” on a law he pushed so hard for. Kremer insisted that the only people who want to shut down the government are Democrats. O’Reilly sighed,“I don’t know what I have to do… to tell you not going to happen.”

O’Reilly kept insisting to Kremer that the risk of Republican backlash is too great for them to be successful, putting him odds with a conservative media largely calling on tea party Republicans to keep fighting it.

You refuse to admit that Obamacare is causing distress in this country among many. You see hospitals closing across the country and still confirm that this healthcare is a good thing. You don't go to separate polls which tell you flatly that more than half the country is opposed to this new health care disaster.

Talk to the people who have seen a 2% deductions in their wages....like the little waitresses trying to make a living at tips to compensate for the loss in deductions. Go ahead, talk to them, we did.

Talk to people who live in the real world and they are not happy by any extent with this administration, this congress and this senate, nor this president....children who are wearing garage sale clothes and mom's swapping on web sites for second hand shoes for their little ones.

Then tell us how great your pension is and how wonderful it is to swim in a pool and cook out steaks!
Nice speech. Unfortunately it's mostly BS.

Those most distressed by Affordable Care are hospital, insurance and pharmaceutical execs in danger of losing their ginormous salaries and bonuses. Do a little research on healthcare CEO compensation...they're distressed, all right, because Affordable Care is going to put a dent in their pockets. Those "hospitals across the country (that) are closing" are mostly the ones that serve poor urban and rural areas and it's been going on since your boy Reagan's trickle down economics. The fact is that poor people die because they can't afford healthcare, and new hospitals are only being built in wealthy districts. The only people opposed to Affordable Care are the ones who have listened to the incendiary rhetoric spouted by your comrades. If you've even spoken to any "real people" you've probably scared the crap out of them with your regressive half-truths and outright lies. Anyone who's actually done any research on the bill itself recognizes that in fact, it doesn't do enough to curb the outrageous greediness of today's corporate healthcare. Not that you'll actually read it, but Stephen Brill's Time Magazine article "Bitter Pill: Why Healthcare Costs Are Killing Us" should be required reading for you and your bunch. You've mentioned that you've "visited" hospitals...well I've worked in them for years, and I can tell you that his expose is right on the money. Uninformed idiot.

As for the "little waitresses"...unless you were eating in an establishment that caters to the vertically challenged or disregards child labor laws, that term is incredibly offensive. I notice you didn't sympathize with "little waiters" or "little busboys", so tell me Jay, were you being condescending to food and beverage workers in general, or just women? And where were you when the House killed the minimum wage bill back in March, that would have given those folks a chance at actually making ends meet? Hypocrite.

What the hell's wrong with wearing hand-me-downs? Name brand children's clothes are outrageously expensive, and the moms and grandmothers I know are overjoyed to find them at garage sales. Let me guess...it's only the new, name brand stuff for your family, right? It would be beneath your exalted status to wear second hand clothes? Elitist.

Finally, as for RC's comments about her retirement, I say good for her! She made good choices years ago and it's paying off. Personally, I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some chips for supper last night, but I'm sincerely happy for RC that she can enjoy whatever benefits her years of hard work have provided for her. I choose to farm, which is an expensive habit, but I accept responsibility for that choice. So if you're not living as well as RC, that's due to *your* choices, and you have no one to blame but yourself. Putz.
