Under what is commonly known as Obamacare, all those who are not insured through their employer or through a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid, with a few exceptions, must obtain insurance or pay a penalty. Pushing back the deadline, or delaying it by as much as a year as a number of Congressional Republicans have demanded, would block this key provision, which the administration hopes will force millions of people to purchase coverage from private insurers on the exchanges.

An outright collapse of the HealthCare.gov site would signal more than technical ineptitude and mismanagement on the Obama administration’s part. Enrollment under the threat of penalty through the “individual mandate”—providing the insurance companies with millions of new cash-paying customers—is the only substantial component of Obamacare.

There are no plans to train new doctors and nurses, or to expand health care to the rural poor, or to launch a nationwide program aimed at eradicating hunger and disease. Rather than initiating social reforms, the health care legislation is aimed at increasing levels of social inequality and setting up a more heavily class-based health care system in America.

This is why Barack Obama has gone to absurd lengths and resorted to outright lies in a public relations campaign aimed at damage control over the beleaguered insurance exchange web site. Defending the health care legislation in an appearance Wednesday before a group of volunteers in Texas, the president said,“We were able to get it done in part because of grass-roots folks like you that fought so hard to make sure we were able to deliver on universal health care.”

Obama’s claim that the health bill will provide anything approaching “universal health care” is an insult to the intelligence of the American people. Even if the web site were running smoothly, the Congressional Budget Office has projected that the health care overhaul will leave 31 million people uninsured, and about 6 million of these will pay penalties. These figures include undocumented immigrants who do not qualify for government subsidies to purchase coverage, millions of the very poor whose resident states are not expanding Medicaid, and those who choose to pay a penalty because they cannot afford insurance, with or without government subsidies.

Many of those who have somehow managed to access HealthCare.gov and peruse the policies available for purchase have also been in for a rude shock. While days before the web site launch Obama was promising that many plans on the exchanges “will cost much less than they do now,” people are finding that the least expensive priced plans come with the highest out-of-pocket costs due to annual deductibles and cost-sharing.

In the course of the disastrous web site rollout the president has been caught in yet another lie, his oft repeated claim that “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.” It has been revealed that the White House was aware as early as June 2010 that an estimated 40 to 67 percent of the 14 million Americans who purchase health insurance on the individual market would be dropped by their insurers. Millions of people have already received cancellation notices, and many are finding that replacement policies are priced substantially higher.

As the fallout over the federal web site continues, one of the more insidious objectives of the health care overhaul is also becoming clearer. Behind the doubletalk of providing “universal” and “affordable” coverage, from the outset the health care legislation has been devised as a means of dismantling the employer-based system of insurance that for decades has guaranteed a basic level of health care for millions of workers in the US.

Socialists in action!

Mothers in UK offered financial incentives for breastfeeding

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Mothers will be given shopping vouchers worth up to approximately $190 if their babies receive breast milk until they are six weeks old, and a further $127 if their babies are still breastfed at six months.

If the "feasibility" project is successful, the authors will conduct a national research project into the scheme.

But midwives have warned that financial reward should not be the main motivation for women to breastfeed.

The Department of Health has admitted it is funding the project...

Virtually zero inflation!
Stock market setting records!
Retirement savings have been restored!
Forty-plus straight months of job growth in private sector!
Housing market has come back!
Wars ending!
Even gas prices are great!

Richard Cohen is back at it again, this time with incendiary comments about interracial marriage and lesbians.
In his November 11 column in the Washington Post entitled "Christie’s tea-party problem," Cohen said that the GOP has had trouble embracing some of the country's cultural shifts. He wrote:
Today’s GOP is not racist, as Harry Belafonte alleged about the tea party, but it is deeply troubled — about the expansion of government, about immigration, about secularism, about the mainstreaming of what used to be the avant-garde. People with conventional views must repress a gag reflex when considering the mayor-elect of New York — a white man married to a black woman and with two biracial children.(Should I mention that Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, used to be a lesbian?) This family represents the cultural changes that have enveloped parts — but not all — of America. To cultural conservatives, this doesn’t look like their country at all.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, shades of Claude Pepper's, "his sister was a known thespian."

I used to see Claude around back in the day, when Bobby Brantley was Lt Governor. I was just a wee muckety muck back then.
