Why are Republicans so afraid of Obamacare? The answer may surprise you.

Over and over and over again Republicans have tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, saying that it would be a catastrophic blow to the US economy and our jobs market. But if the GOP (specifically the Tea Party) actually cared about the economy, would they really push forward legislation that tied increasing the debt ceiling to defunding the Affordable Care Act? If Obamacare was something that would kill jobs and send us into a downward spiral, wouldn’t they have the strategic sense to just let it happen and then campaign on the aftermath?

I’m willing to admit that the Affordable Care Act is confusing to many. Because of how massive the bill is, most people have not read it, nor do they understand it. I’ll even wager that even most of the people who are railing against it don’t understand it either. They’ve claimed that it will cause companies to slash benefits and push their employees onto the public dollar, but isn’t that what companies like Wal-Mart have been doing for years now?

Under this legislation, people cannot be denied for pre-existing conditions. My daughter who suffers from severe asthma can be on my private insurance policy instead of relying on Medicaid, which was the situation before. If I were to have a horrific illness that required months of hospitalization, they cannot drop me citing a lifetime maximum. Healthcare insurance companies are held to the 85% payout rules, something I recently heard Blue Cross and Blue Shield specifically mention in an advertisement on a local conservative talk radio show, acting as if they were somehow a great insurance company because of that payout – while completely omitting the fact that it was a piece of the Affordable Care Act.

I’m not a politician, but I know how to play checkers, and I also know how to play chess. It’s quite clear that the GOP doesn’t know how to play either. Instead, they’re playing this political game like a desperate cheap Scotch-soaked Las Vegas card player pushing all in on the worst poker hands at 3 in the morning, hoping their bluff will pay up. They’ve sunk millions of dollars into social media campaigns and TV spots trying to convince us that death panels exist, or that we would be forced off our current insurance plans into healthcare shortages similar to the empty supermarkets of Communist Russia. They fight against individuals receiving subsidies for healthcare while fighting for subsidies for Big Oil and other corporate interests. It makes absolutely no sense in a real world argument.

Seriously, if Obamacare is truly as bad as they claim it would be, why not let it happen and then ride the fallout and public anger into huge gains in the House and Senate in 2014, as well as the White House in 2016?

They doubled down on fighting legislation that will likely be held in high regard as a piece of President Obama’s legacy, while presenting not one piece of memorable legislation that has passed since 2010. The GOP has done absolutely nothing to present a better or even viable alternative to something that was once their own idea. I can only conclude that they know what good will come out of this for millions of Americans, and they’re willing to shut down the government in order to play their final bluff.

Paul: We Probably Can't Get Rid Of 'Obamacare'

MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich.(AP)- Republican Sen. Rand Paul says President Barack Obama's health care law probably can't be defeated or gotten rid of. And he's suggesting there are few ways and little time for him and other congressional Republicans to stop it.

Speaking to reporters Saturday at a gathering of Michigan Republicans, the presidential prospect said Republicans in Congress could use votes on measures in the House and in the Senate to come up with compromise legislation that could make the law more palatable. Some provisions, Paul said, include removing caps on health savings account contributions or deductibles for health policies.

But the Kentucky Republican said time for that is running out before Oct. 1, the start of the 2014 fiscal year and the date that state insurance exchanges begin.

Paul said Republicans still expect members to fight the law, which national polls show only about a third of Americans support.

"I'm acknowledging we can't probably defeat or get rid of Obamacare," he said. "But by starting with our position of not funding it, maybe we get to a position where we make it less bad."

Some Senate Republicans, including would-be 2016 presidential rivals Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, have said they would vote to refuse to pay for the health care law, even if it meant shutting down portions of the government. Paul has called closing down the government "a dumb idea."

http://www.lex18.com/news/paul-we-probably-ca...

It is LAW...GOP will have to suck it up when it works and by Nov 2014 the voters will have the truth and there will be even MORE VOTES for DEMS.

Obama hides aid for criminals in immigration bill

The White House is trying to hide unpopular provisions in the Senate’s immigration bill that would allow immigrant criminals to stay in the country and would increase the inflow of low-skill refugees from war-torn countries, says a top White House official.

“The bill has a number of other important provisions that have stayed under the radar, and we’d actually like to keep them under the radar,” said Esther Olavarria, the White House’s director of immigration reform.

“We haven’t played [them] up because we want to be able to maintain them as we go through the legislative process,” she told about 50 attendees at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference, on Sept. 19.

At the CBC foundation event, Olavarria described the sections in the Senate bill that she’s trying to hide from the public and the GOP.

99.9% of elected officials are guilty of violating their oath of office by allowing the invasion of 33 million illegal aliens.

Further, they violated federal law by aiding and abetting illegal aliens once they were here.

Finally, they betrayed every tax paying American by forcing them to pay trillions of dollars in taxes for services proved to people who have no right to be here.

Worse, these same elected officials who are voting to reward criminal behavior obviously consider the over 25,000 Americans killed/murdered and the over one million illegal aliens who were victims of sexual assaults by illegal aliens as nothing more than human sacrifices.

There he was again a couple nights ago.

Our illustrious leader, Barack Hussein Obama, lecturing the American people to work harder for tougher gun laws if they want to end a plague of violence in schools, military installations and in certain cities – all of which share one attribute: They don’t allow guns.

Makes sense, huh?

What we need are tougher laws – meaning more restrictions on firearms. But everywhere it’s tried we see the slaughter of the innocents.

“I have an idea,” says Obama.“Let’s keep doing the same thing over against and expect different results!”

Think about it, people: Where is the gun violence?

It’s in Washington, a city that does everything in its power to discourage law-abiding citizens from getting firearms. It’s in Chicago, a city that does everything in its power to discourage law-abiding citizens from getting firearms. It’s in Detroit, a city that does everything in its power to discourage law-abiding citizens from getting firearms.

It’s in schools across America that have been declared “gun-free zones,” meaning law-abiding citizens are not permitted to have them on the premises. It’s in movie theaters that have been declared “gun-free zones,” meaning law-abiding citizens are not permitted to have them on the premises. It’s in “secure” military installations that have inexplicably and illogically become “gun-free zones,” meaning law-abiding citizens are not permitted to have them on the premises.

These cities and institutions have followed to the letter Obama’s prescription – and they are the very places witnessing increases in gun violence.

Again...get your head out of your ass. Obama just makes an executive Order when Congress votes down his ridiculous gun grab bills and does what he wants. Hell with what we the people want or what the Constitution states...he does what he wants to do. Obama won't attempt to take our guns away because he knows that is a fight the messiah and his gang of crooks can not win. Instead he will attempt to render our guns useless. We can have guns because it is our right but if he can make it extremely expensive for poor and middle class people to own a gun...he will. Wonder why he hasn't made an Executive order for Chicago to get down on the gangs and drugs instead of putting more gun restrictions on law abiding citizens in the murder capital and the Heroin capital of the United States (Chicago) run by his butt buddy Rahm Emanual?

You can't fundamentally change a country brick by brick and institute your personal agenda of your fathers dreams for America if the citizens are armed. So Obama had to go to plan B...enslave us with debt. And boy did he ever!

Just another mirrors and smoke circus from the ass clown democrats hoping everyone will believe them when they repeat that Obama doesn't want to take our guns away. Notice how you imbeciles never defend the fact that he intends to render our guns useless. That's another fight he will lose.

NBC interviewed the Oh'bama and the president stated that he quit smoking 6 years ago but still smokes sometimes. Huh? Whut? Damn, he couldn't tell the truth about anything if his life depended on it. He laughed and said he was scared of Moo'chelle. That's why he sort of, kind of, sometimes, maybe quit 6 years ago. lol

Is it a slow news day for the lame stream media? Obama MAY have quit smoking...or not? All the scandals...F&F, IRS, NSA, EPA, FBI, DOJ, Benghazi, Libya, financing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the train wreck Obamacare, doubled our deficit in less than 5 years, Syria...and NBC thought our Nation would be a better place if they skipped over all those "phony" scandals and reported on the Oh'bama sneaking and smoking because he is scared of the wife?

And you kool-aid drinkin' fools known as ObaMORONS just eat that garbage up like there's no tomorrow.

If he had a son he would be a sneakin' smoker too unless the Moo'chelle drew a red line two or three times. lmao
