Obamacare is delivering a death knell to insurance plans on the individual market.
"Last week, our family received notice from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado that we can no longer keep the plan we like because of “changes from health care reform (also called the Affordable Care Act or ACA).” The letter informed us that “to meet the requirements of the new laws, your current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date.”
That type of news will increase 100 fold in the next week.....

Incredibly, according to the Huffington Post, the National Association of Evangelicals, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, National Council of Churches and “numerous retired generals and admirals” are outspoken advocates for the UN Arms Trade Treaty. Christian Post reports that a left-wing “faith” group called the American Values Network — which calls itself “an organization seeking to encourage community and family values”— even launched a video aimed at the seven U.S. senators who currently oppose the ATT.
So be sure to contact your senators and tell them to vote NO when the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty comes before the Senate for ratification.
The treaty has ZERO to do with gun rights in the US.

Are employers dumping health benefits because of Obamacare?

By Tami Luhby @Luhby September 26, 2013: 6:07 AM

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
There are many assumptions about what the effects of Obamacare will be. This series aims to separate myths from realities and answer questions surrounding the Affordable Care Act.

Myth: Employers are dumping health benefits because of Obamacare.

Reality: It's true that Obamacare is raising costs on employers. And some are either passing those increased tabs to workers or are cutting back on benefits to keep costs under control.

Several employers -- including UPS (UPS, Fortune 500), Delta (DAL, Fortune 500) and University of Virginia -- have recently cited Obamacare as a source of increased costs. UPS and University of Virginia will no longer provide benefits for spouses with coverage options elsewhere. Trader Joe's and Home Depot (HD, Fortune 500)are shifting part-time workers to the Obamacare exchanges.

Some companies are making major changes that aren't directly related to Obamacare, but embrace the idea of health insurance exchanges. IBM (IBM, Fortune 500) and Time Warner (TWX, Fortune 500) are moving retirees to private exchanges, while Walgreens (WAG, Fortune 500) is shifting all its employees to a private exchange next year.

But Obamacare is not the only reason behind the benefits adjustments.

"An increase in costs of a few percent isn't enough to cause widespread changes in benefits," said Larry Levitt, senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Other factors, such as the improving economy, are contributing to rising costs since people use more medical care when the economy is healthier.

Also, companies have been shifting costs to employees for years. While UPS will limit its spousal coverage, it is not the first company to do so.

Starbucks CEO on Obamacare plans

"The ACA is definitely escalating the pace of change," said Sandy Ageloff, senior consultant with Towers Watson, a professional services firm.

Not all companies, however, are planning to pull back on benefits. Starbucks' CEO Howard Schultz told CNN earlier this month that Starbucks will not change its coverage even though Obamacare will raise its costs.

"I don't believe that ... the health care law should be a reason or a motivation to cut benefits for either the employee or spouses," Schultz said. "An investment in your people is an investment in shareholder value."

You realize that your source is a jackass.

The quote says that premiums will be lower than projected. i.e. the actual premiums coming out in the exchanges are lower than they were estimated to be earlier.

That statement has zero do do with comparisons about policies outside the exchanges.

You people keep proving how GD dumb you are.

You deserve Ted Cruz & Rand Paul.

UN Treaty and Fast & Furious —Tools of Gun Control

The history of the UN-ATT is intertwined with Fast & Furious and other false flags

David Knight
Infowars.com
September 25, 2013

It was just a few days ago that Henry Porter of the London Observer said:

This has reached the point where it has ceased to be a domestic issue. The world cannot stand idly by.

The UN has been working for a long time on tactics to disarm and control Americans. The purpose of the UN Arms Trade Treaty (UN-ATT) is to regulate the transfer of guns. That obviously requires that all guns be registered and tracked by governments — which is really about registering and tracking gun owners.

To get the ATT ratified, a watered down version is offered as a Trojan Horse with just a passing reference to “small arms”. Once it’s ratified, it can easily be changed and expanded with only 75% of UN countries voting for changes. That won’t be difficult considering it passed nearly unanimously, with only 3 countries (Iran, Syria and North Korea) voting against.

FALSE FLAGS & PUBLIC OPINION

The history of the UN-ATT is intertwined with false flags. Fast & Furious was supposed to lay the groundwork to scare the public about arms crossing the border. Even the NY Times pointed out that the purpose of our government shipping guns to Mexico in the “Gunwalker” programs was to scare the public about arms moving across borders and get the public to cry out for protection. And the UN-ATT was the legislation they had already prepared to offer as a solution.

The UN-ATT was originally scheduled for a vote last July. But Fast & Furious had been exposed and was in full blown controversy because the GOP wanted to use it for political gain — not because they wanted to end the BATF abuses or send anyone to jail for criminal behavior. The “Gunwalker” programs had been run under Bush prior to Obama.

Exactly one week before the UN was to vote on the UN-ATT, the Aurora, CO shooting was staged to try to energize gun control, take away attention from Fast & Furious and get American public opinion to support UN-ATT passage.

You people are dumber than sh*t.
I was at the UN that week covering it for a pro-Second Amendment organization. There were a couple of groups demonstrating for passage and the corporate media was in full court press calling for gun control. But the Feds didn’t get the traction from Aurora that they needed thanks to the authentic media. So they decided to wait until after the US election and even made public statements to that effect. If Obama lost, it would be done after election but before the new President took office.
Within hours of Obama winning re-election and the Senate Democrats increasing in numbers, they announced that they wouldn’t do it in the lame duck session after all but in the spring. The Sandy Hook shooting took place Dec 15 and for 3 months Sandy Hook and gun control were the corporate media’s theme. Then the UN passed the Arms Trade Treaty on April 2.
THE RATIFICATION PROCESS
Kerry signed the UN-ATT today. Senators have warned that the treaty has to be ratified by the Senate (probably because Obama has a history of violating the Constitution and ignoring requirements for Congressional authorization).
Constitutionally, it doesn’t matter that the Secretary of State signed the treaty. President Clinton’s Secretary of State, Madeline Albright, signed another terrible UN treaty — the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, attacking the family — back in 1995. It never got any farther.
If Obama signs the treaty it still has to be ratified by the Senate. But it’s important to note that the Constitution doesn’t require 2/3 of the Senate to approve — only 2/3 of those PRESENT have to sign it. Will Harry Reid schedule a vote during a recess to get it ratified?
TREATIES DON’T CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION
Treaties don’t amend the Constitution but neither does regulatory law. However, the Feds act as if both do. Once the government passes a “law” or “regulation”, they enforce it. Citizens can fight them in court, but even when governments lose, it’s not uncommon for them to ignore the court decision. Washington, DC ignores the fact that the Supreme Court struck down their gun laws 5 years ago in DC v Heller. And court decisions striking down laws against photographing cops are being ignored across the country.
INFRINGING RIGHTS
Former General McChrystal, has publicly supported banning military weapons from being possessed by the people
That’s what our soldiers ought to carry. I personally don’t think there’s any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets
and at the same time has called for re-instating the draft. Admiral Mike Mullen, the ex-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said
he feared US civilians “do not know us” while the military had become increasingly “insular.”
McChrystal went on to say something very telling:
“Serious action is necessary. Sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges and I just don’t think that’s enough.”
“Very limited action around the edges” is exactly what “infringement” is. But not content with infringement, McChrystal is calling for more “serious action” implying, he’s ready to move on to confiscation. Clearly McChrystal & Mullen have no respect for the constitutional prohibition of a standing army and reject the constitutional prescription of a citizen militia like Switzerland.
The Founders used the term “shall not be infringed” in the Second Amendment because they knew that arms could never be confiscated from the people unless it was a gradual infringement, gradual and “limited actions on the edges” as McChrystal puts it.
One might ask why they used the term “shall not infringe” rather than “Congress shall pass no law” as in the First Amendment. If we look at Article 1, Sec 8, we see that Congress had already given authorization to pass laws that affected the militia. Congress was to organize, arm and call forth the people as a militia, i.e. support and aid the militia.
