The new health care law wasn't supposed to undercut employer plans that have provided most people in the U.S. with coverage for generations, but last week a leading manufacturer told workers their costs will jump partly because of the law.

If they didn't get an increase, employers cut thier health plans. So much for their healthcare plan being well thought out, Peloser!
Oh but that's right they all get all the benefits without having to deal with the healthcare plan they dealt us with!

Those opposed to Obama and the Dems legislation on this tried to tell you it was going to make things worse, but NOOOOOOOO, the Left wouldn't listen.

The Dems pushed it thru in spite of all the public opposition. The likes of Nancy Pelosi saying STUPID things like "We have to pass it to find out what's in it."

The most amazing thing is: These people are totally convinced they are "progressive". They have NO respect for non-Liberals and believe conservatism to be invalid and unworthy of any consideration.

These Leftists get upset when people call them communists, socialists and fascists - but they act like totalitarians in waiting! AMAZING arrogance, blindness and hypocrisy...and text book definition of bigotry.

And, no doubt, when this stinking "health" legislation destroys what's left of health care, the same SOBs responsible for it will blame those who opposed it for the damage done.

Capitalism must be made to fail before Socialism/Communism can be implmented.

During WW2, many Communists in America saw Fascism as the dying breath of Capitalism. They saw it as a transistion stage.

So the question is: Are they reckless, or sinister and devious?

Are they on Drugs?

Of course it was supposed to undercut employers plans! The Jackasscrats intention was to wreck the current system which would create a crisis which Obama would take advantage of again.

This is the Jackasscrat way. Create a Crisis then USE IT.

Once the TEA people FAIL to capture the US Senate
Obama will have a free hand and he will finish the
Obammunizing (raping) of America.

But this is what happens when a Nation abandons GOD
in favor of Pagan Political Messiahs like Glenn Beck
and Ron Paul. God turned his back!

Obama is a well deserved divine judgment against the
American Left for murdering 50 million babies and for
the American Right for worshiping false Gods.

I hope you are all proud of yourselves

Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 48%, Democrats 39%

Monday, October 18, 2010

Election Day is just two weeks away, and Republican candidates hold a nine-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending Sunday, October 17, 2010.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of respondents say they would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 39% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

Even more worrisome for Democrats, however, is the finding that among the voters who are most closely following the midterm elections Republicans hold a 55% to 36% lead.

The Obamacare massacre continues: 3M to drop retiree health plans

By: Mark Hemingway
Commentary Staff Writer
10/05/10

The Wall Street Journal:

3M Co. confirmed it would eventually stop offering its health-insurance plan to retirees, citing the federal health overhaul as a factor.

The changes won’t start to phase in until 2013. But they show how companies are beginning to respond to the new law, which should make it easier for people in their 50s and early-60s to find affordable policies on their own. While thousands of employers are tapping new funds from the law to keep retiree plans, 3M illustrates that others may not opt to retain such plans over the next few years.

3M has some 23,000 retirees — no word on how many will be affected by this yet. Investor’s Business Daily is calling this the “Obamacare massacre.” Since these stories like this keep emerging, that name just might stick.

Washington Post blockbuster confirms concerns about politicized Justice Department

By: Mark Hemingway
Commentary Staff Writer
10/23/10

Here’s your weekend reading assignment. The Washington Post has a lengthy investigation into the decision making process at the Justice Department following their controversial decision not to pursue charges against the New Black Panthers for brandishing weapons at a polling place.

The Post’s conclusion, based on conversations with a number of Justice Department employees? Yup, the DOJ is hopelessly politicized and pretty much everything whistleblower J. Christian Adams has said that has been trumpeted in the conservative media is on target:

Civil rights officials from the Bush administration have said that enforcement should be race-neutral. But some officials from the Obama administration, which took office vowing to reinvigorate civil rights enforcement, thought the agency should focus primarily on cases filed on behalf of minorities.

“The Voting Rights Act was passed because people like Bull Connor were hitting people like John Lewis, not the other way around,” said one Justice Department official not authorized to speak publicly, referring to the white Alabama police commissioner who cracked down on civil rights protesters such as Lewis, now a Democratic congressman from Georgia.

Before the New Black Panther controversy, another case had inflamed those passions. Ike Brown, an African American political boss in rural Mississippi, was accused by the Justice Department in 2005 of discriminating against the county’s white minority. It was the first time the 1965 Voting Rights Act was used against minorities and to protect whites.

Coates and Adams later told the civil rights commission that the decision to bring the Brown case caused bitter divisions in the voting section and opposition from civil rights groups.

Three Justice Department lawyers, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they feared retaliation from their supervisors, described the same tensions, among career lawyers as well as political appointees. Employees who worked on the Brown case were harassed by colleagues, they said, and some department lawyers anonymously went on legal blogs “absolutely tearing apart anybody who was involved in that case,” said one lawyer.

“There are career people who feel strongly that it is not the voting section’s job to protect white voters,” the lawyer said.

“The environment is that you better toe the line of traditional civil rights ideas or you better keep quiet about it, because you will not advance, you will not receive awards and you will be ostracized.”

Read the whole thing.

Obama knew all along that "Obama-care" would drive up the cost. This is not news to him. His plan is to drive health insurance cost even higher, then claim there is no option left but "single payer", i.e. a total government take over of the ENTIRE health care system. There was NEVER any intention for the jerry-rigged thing he created to work or be efficient. The whole point of Obamacare is to drive the system into ruin so he can come and "save" it from the "evil" insurance companies.

Yes........and don't forget.....quoting Nancy (BOTOX LADY) Pelosi........"We have to pass the bill BEFORE we can find out what is in it." This statement is the INSULT to MY INTELLIGENCE. Nancy and her friends Obama and Reid should be IMPEACHED for TREASON against the people of the United States. They have perpertrated a HEALTH CONTROL LAW that will totally KILL most of the average citizens in this country,...... HOW? BY OMISSION. They are out to make a few TRILLIONS FOR THEMSELVES with this bill. They intend for YOU to DIE so they can rake in billions that they won't have to spend keeping you alive and healthy. People, when that old "grim reaper" comes calling and just a simple antibiotic would have cured you, but you can't get it because OBAMA wants to "SAVE" THAT MONEY, and YOU AREN'T "WORTH IT".......You will then have a short window of time to THINK of what you have done to yourself.

Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D.PA) says that the reason the bill is so unpopular is because our legislators failed to "educate" the people on its benefits. No doubt, he is as surprised as anybody else about the contents since he probably didn't read it.

Now that it has passed and the intended consequence (single payer/government controlled) is becoming evident, Obama is feigning surprise.
Unfortunately, there is video showing that he favors this single payer system. I can't imagine why he is surprised.

The only thing that really needs an overhaul is his administration. He is a proponent of a European style socialist government and we are daily watching its collapse in Greece, France and even Ireland.

What seems to work in theory does not always work in reality. Obama has received a very good grounding in socialist principles but does not seem to be aware of the history of their application or the current events that are demonstrating their failure.
