Will Obamacare Cost You Your Job?

And the geniuses in congress who voted this thing upon us didn't even think about this stuff... they were to busy blaming republicans for being obstructionist's because they were suggesting that this kind of thing would happen. But not to worry... they have their government perks to take care of them, and one of precedent obama's fixes to this disaster was to allow for the staffs (of these big thinkers who didn't do their job) to get subsidies so they didn't have to lose that $8,000. With out these subsidies, the staff members were going to have to quit because they couldn't afford the insurance. THAT is reason to dump the entire thing... as we all still have to face this and find a way to cut our budgets to be within the law. Health insurance is a decision, not a right and this could be done without spending "one thin dime" of government money. Just let market forces of the spending power of millions of Americans force the costs down by letting them control their lives and money.
This exercise is the best example you can find for MAKING the members of congress completely write any bill that they want to consider. And that means ALL of the regulations too. They are the elected representatives who we've put in place to do this... not some hired experts or someone working in an office at HHS or some other alphabet department. Yes, this would slow things down... but that is how it is supposed to work. It is called regular order, where members of congress actually work and talk with each other about the nitty gritty details. Somehow during the last century, the congress decided that it needs to do more and streamline the system, so it started to just outline ideas and let someone else write the regulations that have the power of law. They came up with some rules that they had 30 days to approve any regulations, but if they didn't get to it then it was put in place with out any oversite. But they were too busy doing stuff to take the necessary time to review the regulations... so they just took place with the force of law. That is how we get these dump things that hold us back in all kinds of laws. This is the problem... do your job, it is to write the details of the laws BEFORE you vote on them. Oh, and stop adding things that have nothing to do with a specific law (either no chance of passing on their own or that will be hard to make happen). It has become a regular practice and has to stop as it is a cop out by all of you... again, do your job. i.e. student loans in the PPACA, or most recently Money for the immigration disaster (this is hotly contested) onto the funding for the Iron dome in Isreal (all agree on this)
This is not a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention... and with this video or transcripts of it being put into evidence in the next round of court proceedings, its pretty much a sealed deal. I also believe there was some discussion on this subject on the senate floor...
First to Christie Parsons, the president of the WH correspondents association... Obama says be quiet, he will tell you what is public in nature. all you have to do is report what he says. To Obama's characterization of republicans may play well in sound bytes, but he is dead wrong when he says their REASON for not agreeing with him "comes down to saying 'no' to any efforts to help ordinary families get ahead." That is 180 out of phase with reality, as they are saying NO because the policies that you and the democrats put in place when they could and are not trying to push on them through your attacks, have made things worse, stalled the economy and will not work. It is really easy... but Obama doesn't want to find things to make things better. He is a traveler who has an eye on the utopian goal of equal outcomes for all and will not rest until he reaches it. (except of course for the leaders as they must have more so they can continue to lead with a clear and mighty hand)
THis may be one of the reasons that the "back end" of Healthcare.gov wasn't built inititally. THey didn't want that in place to have a trail of the unauthorized spending. Instead they are relying on the insurance companies to give them guesstimates for them to base subsidies on. This language is straight forward that subsidies are ONLY available through state run exchanges! Period!!! Any one in the media who says the language is ambiguous is a flat out liar who doesn't want people to have to follow the law. When this gets to SCOTUS it will be a mirror decision of the medicare coercion ruling.
All he wants is for the entire story to be told... it is possible, even likely that one of the scenarios the ambassador laid out happened. Just tell the story as it happens and not as you want it to be. That seems to be a fairly easy thing to do... and it is unfair not to tell the entire story.

Impeachment will only happen if 1/3rd of the democrats in the house and 50% of the democrats in the senate want to support it. And they will have to be the ones to initiate the proceedings. With out these three pieces, it will never happen. He has done more than enough to deserve impeachment... but in today's political and media cultures it won't happen with out the democrats being the ones to do it. It will certainly be interesting to see what goes on when we have the next republican president. Will the same thing that happens regualarly, where each side changes their view of right and wrong, or will some step up and be adults and look out for the best interests in we the people? To date, they are all self absorbed fools who only want to win what ever the days political optics argument is about. Sad...
Thanks for keeping this in the sunlight. I list this as one of his biggest abuses of power... but since it was early on in his destructive administration it was put under the rug early and has been lost in the tornado of other abuses. This was a foretelling of how he would disregard laws that were inconvenient to his agenda and to the complete ignoring of court orders with slow or non compliance in his coverup efforts.
HE waves every time he gets off that plane... at this point, with his support diving to new lows, I am wondering who he is waving at?
She may well have said, that the government has a secret unicorn farm in New Mexico... It has more credibility than suggesting that the "Reset" button worked. Because we have evidence that the reset is a complete failure... we have no evidence that they don't have a secret unicorn farm.
