Obama Care – Now You Can Keep A Plan that is More Substandard than the Plan you Lost Under Obama Care Mandates! – The Fleecing of America – Answer: Civil Class Action Law Suit
It’s all in a day’s work in D.C. as the nation’s indecisive and glaringly incompetent administration changes yet another facet of the disaster known as Obama Care. Due to mandates of this particular plan governing insurance coverage for certain instances, which were previously not covered under some private insurance plans (i.e. fertility services), those types of plans were cancelled. Some of those plans offered sterling benefits, at a reasonable price; yet, those individuals were told they could not keep their plans. Top that off with the fact that the administration knew this was the scoop years ago when the bill was being “developed”. They weren’t alone, as one would think most of the Congresses understood what was about to happen to those families and individuals, but for political and or ideological reasons, let this behemoth become law, and then fund the darn thing.
To cover their increasingly large behinds, the Feds with their media buddies are beginning to downplay the projected millions of plan losses by noting that the White House is suggesting that “fewer than 500,000” have lost healthcare coverage”(News10.net)
Then the administration announced they would yet again, unconstitutionally ignore this law by offering those without coverage the ability to avoid fees from the IRS and those who have lost coverage will be able to get “catastrophic insurance”, which is insurance that may or may not prevent bankruptcy in the event someone needs care.(NPR)
If one is one of the estimated millions who lost their coverage under the bungling of the implementation of this plan with no rules imposed upon the American public by the Democrat controlled Congress and Democrat controlled Senate in 2010, then the fact that they are being offered coverage that is sub-standard, after losing great plans that were deemed substandard by the same bureaucracy then there should be a massive suit brought, not against the government per say, but a civil suit against those who knowingly and willingly defrauded those millions – class action toward any Congressional Representative, Senator, or Health and Human Services Secretary who was willing to allow these “few” people to suffer the consequences of their incompetence.
In 2014 and 2016 those same individuals who even suggested they might support this ridiculous burden on the American working family should face the consequences of the voting public.
You can keep your plan- or you can keep you’re: Senator, Congressional Representative, Presidential candidate who supported this mess. (Taking that line from the very effective advertisement currently running in New Hampshire targeting Democrat Senator Sheehan for her dedicated support of Obama Care – with 20,000 New Hampshire residents now able to buy catastrophic plans after losing decent plans, and only one Obama Care insurer in the state.)

Obama Care Glitches In Land of Romney Care – New Depths of Disaster - Let’s Blame it on the Website! The Repercussions.
According to the Boston Herald Governor Deval Patrick has insisted that everyone in Massachusetts will have health insurance by the deadline and insured by January 1, 2014. That may be a tall order since even under Romney Care, not everyone in Massachusetts was insured. In fact, many preferred to pay the fine rather than the higher and unaffordable premiums under Commonwealth Care – it was that simple. Those that are not subsidized do not have a choice.
Apparently these individuals will not get any exceptions under the hybrid Obama-Romney Care either: Red Mass Group reports that. as of the 17th of December those who are unsubsidized (working and making too much money) will not be eligible for extensions under the new Obama Care. The numbers are dismal - as of yesterday, the 18th of December, not one individual, subsidized or not, was able to sign up through the website.(Red Mass Group).
Apparently, Red Mass Group (Read Here) has been chronicling the disastrous roll-out of Obama Care in the Commonwealth upon which it was modeled. From individuals denied coverage due to their non substantiated criminal past (a mistake), to those who are now on phones with state workers who will “describe” a plan to them. Frankly, if one has been to the DMV does one really trust a state (read government) employee to give them the straight scoop – especially since nothing appears work – it’s a question of trust as well as proof of disaster.
From Massachusetts doctors sending out notices telling their patients they are either ending their practices or going to a fee for service sans government intervention method (preferred!!) – one wonders how long it will be before the Feds throw in the towel and turn to some in the Senate or Congress that have suggested solutions which fell on deaf ears – (make that the hyper-partisan ears of Harry Reid, Democrat sheep leader). Pull the mandates for individuals and employees, open each state to competition and watch the premiums fall – those who cannot afford the now lower plans would be on Medicaid, which is the vehicle used in the past. A few tweaks were all it would have taken to prevent this mess. The worst of it was that it was modeled on a system that “pretended to cover” everyone in the first place – but, at least the website worked.
2014 for the Independent, the Libertarian and those few incumbents who never voted for the Bill, or voted to Fund the bill (recall Ted Cruz); will be in fairly decent shape. Those who are still supporting or furthering Obama Care on either side of the aisle, will be facing a rough road – they may even loose with the dead voting.

Read it and Weep – Sen. Coburn (R-OK) Wastebook for 2013 shows 30 Billion in Government Waste – Yet Military Pensions are Cut? – Time to Reboot Washingto
From CBS News the Waste book is here, and it is, as usual, chock full of idiocy when it comes to delving out taxpayer dollars in D.C. The full report is embedded below. Suffice it to say, the Federal government who cannot handle a simple taxpayer disbursement to various departments without going over the top in spending, surely is not capable of handling a nationwide health care exchange, or for that matter, anything other than what they were originally designed by the Constitution to do – manage coining of money, secure the borders and meet on occasion to write a law or two. Time for change indeed, of a fiscal and sane nature, with the best options at hand - to get those most comfortable in D.C. a ticket home via the voting booth.
Understanding that the Federal Government is clueless as to spending and allocations, they recently cut the budget (to show fiscal restraint), but not their favorite pet projects, but the pensions to retired and disabled military personnel This was much to the objections of one party over another – the party who cut the pensions – those Democrats.
It is not without a bit of irony that the lot of them, both with a D or an R – have done little in the way of helping the general working family, rather spend most of their time, vested in their own re-election. What’s a billion dollars here and there amongst friends? Ridiculous and expensive spending could be used as a means to cut the budget down, rather than to bring it to new heights, and mandatory pencil counting should be installed in every department with the warning: If you fail to bring that department in under budget and show savings, you’ll be see a budget cut next year. That is not the current system. Under the current system, if one is in the position to work with a department budget, it is a requirement to spend the lot of it, or they will be in peril of reduced funding for the following year. Reversing that budgeting process would keep DC in buckets of cash, and the taxpayer seeing a reduction of or no taxes. The Federal government could revert back to their original money making option of tariff’s.

Newt Gingrich at Amherst College - See Article and more photos at The Daily Hampshire Gazette
In the deepest liberal enclave in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, an odd event occurred this past week – New Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and 2012 Presidential Candidate spoke before a packed house at Amherst College – and received standing ovations. (MassLive) – The article does note that Gingrich is not as “Polarizing” as say “Karl Rove” – however, he is to the right of Karl Rove, which makes this all the more stunning. Although sponsored by the College Republican’s one might think that meant 100 people tops in an auditorium –however, there as overflow and the estimates are over 1000, if one counts the room holding 800 to 1000 and the overflow noted as 200.
Then Rasmussen conducts a poll of the most influential people – in the world. and of all the individuals that might be conservative, Ted Cruz came in a stunning 3rd, behind the President and the Pope, who took first (Washington Examiner).
With the hoopla surrounding various legislation and acts as of late, with Republican Leadership bending over backwards to “to get along” by being less Conservative rather than negotiating deals and working with the more liberal elements of the Democrat caucus, it just boggles the mind as to why they refuse to recognize a trend – perhaps one that is away from Washington’s blind eye, business as usual perspective and more toward the prospect of listening to the people rather than the media, the lobbyist, and the like.
Although only two examples, one can find more than a few as of late, and as the mid-terms are coming up this year it will be interesting to see how well those candidates that don’t associate with either party, or modestly do – will be elected over those incumbents who really annoyed the daylights out of people (by either association with or support for Obama Care, Immigration (the way it’s currently being managed and a host of other complaints).
It is quite possible that the younger generation and those who are sick and tired of being taxed to smithereens, while “Rome burns and the Washington elite fiddle” – might just vote en masse to shake things up a bit. Should that occur, it will be, despite the pundits, more conservative candidates, albeit liberty candidates, who end up with the majority.
