Well spoken by an "independent thinker”; who hates to hear about an intelligent, successful black man (who doesn’t follow the party line for the democrats). Do I hear an idealog bigot somewhere…..I'm sure that Obama is far more "intelligent" since he knows politics and community organizing, and nothing about pediatric neurosurgery....LOL!

The rise in premiums prior to the ACA were marginal and due to rising costs, just like everything else. In fact, employer based premiums were decreasing until 2009 when ACA was born. The ACA directly adds about a 3% increase in premiums OVER normal cost increases. That’s the “political facts”. Now, how about real experience? My Anthem, self-insured, family premiums with a 3k deductible were $325/mo and I was canceled on 12/31/13. My new premium under ACA was $675/mo with a 9k deductible! Of course, being a man, I was covered for birth control, and my wife was covered for maternity (I’m “fixed” and my wife is 55). So my premium went up over 100% with worse coverage. Now I’m not insured since I can’t afford the increase and don’t get govt. handouts. Just wait until the employer mandate hits and you’ll see a lot of people screaming when they get this type of increase.
Let's see....Black Panthers stand outside polling place and threaten people with billy clubs; found guilty in court; Obama/Holder dismiss the case; D'Sousa violates campaign contribution laws (after a "normal" FBI review of NY 2012 election), and Holder hunts him down and files charges. D'Sousa SHOULD HAVE either hired people to stand outside the polling place and intimidate the voters; or just put "African-American" on his voter registration card.- FBI would have said "no problems here"!

Flamer; you're close, but no cigar. There are far more fundamental perversions made by the SCOTUS; 1st Amendment "right of privacy"?? to allow abortions? What's that got to do with speech?, 2nd Amendment; "...shall not be infringed."? Yet the laws "infringe". At least with income taxes, there was the 16th Amendment and not some between the lines...liberal interpretation.
Nice try rt.. Do you know what a "red herring" is? If not, you should find out because your posts would be classic examples. The "elephant in the room" is that the IRS specifically TARGETED conservative groups and had them go through a DIFFERENT screening process than non-targeted groups. Everyone CAN SEE the elephant! It's just that some (like you) want to look the other way. Issa is DOING HIS JOB in spite of the barking and squealing from the leftists who see nothing wrong in punishing their political enemies by illegally using their political power. God save America!
No BS: I had Anthem take out $315/mo from my checking acct (ACH). I got canceled as of 1/1/14. Obamacare cheapest was $570/mo which I couldn't afford, so I figured I'd look elsewhere (Medi-share, etc.). I never got any other paperwork or notice from Anthem. Then Anthem took out the $570! I almost bounced some checks. Luckly the credit union gave me the money back since it was an "unauthorized increase in ACH". They said other's were having the same issues. You can't call Anthem; the phone either just rings, or you go on hold. I was on hold for 40 min. till I gave up. It's ALL SCREWED UP!
On the other hand; My insurance was canceled as of 1/1/14. The Obamacare policy was too high to renew (55% increase), so I figured I’d do without for now. I just found out that I was AUTOMATICALLY renewed as of 1/1/14 and the increased payment was taken out of my bank account! I NEVER signed up, but they automatically enrolled me and took out the payment! And now Anthem won't answer the phone... Is this how they keep the enrollment numbers up???

The 'Trickle-Down' Lie

I believe there ACTUALLY IS a "trickle-down" theory. Only is it espoused by the socialists and THEIR economists. It works this way; you give your taxes and other seized property to the government and it then “trickles-down” how much, and to whom, it decides. Of course, you’ll never hear the leftist Democrats call this a “trickle-down” policy; they call it “income redistribution”.

And don't forget about George Washington; who started all this.....geeze hmiller- you've got to start reading something other than leftwing blogs. How about " Road to Serfdom" as a start?
It will be interesting to see how the American Jews feel when Israel is wiped of the face of the Earth by a nuke, or the look on the faces of the middle class when taxes are increased, or the non-voting "Christians/Catholics" find their churches being forced to follow the Govt. dictates.
