It Was Only A Matter of Time … ObamaCare’s Meltdown Has Arrived

From the WSJ comes one of the most predictable outcomes ever … The ObamaCare’s Meltdown Has Arrived

The day has finally come where Obamacare implodes. Obamacare was a scam from the outset and had no way of ever succeeding. But that did not stop Barack Obama and the Democrats from forcing this down the throats of Americans who wanted no part of it. The failed act called the Affordable Healthcare plan would be considered a hysterical laugh out loud riot, if it wasn’t so damning and devastating to so many people. Isn’t it remarkable that Obamacare is melting down as Obama is leaving office? Think that wasn’t intentional America? If not, then you also believe that you can keep your insurance plan, doctor and hospital under Obamacare. Obama knew this was a lie, so did Jonathon Gruber, one of the main architects of Obamacare. Hell, Bill Clinton just told you the other day called Obamacare a “crazy system” and it was killing small business.

There was a reason why Obamacare was the Politifacts 2013 LIE OF THE YEAR … “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It” … #YouLie

Tennessee is ground zero for ObamaCare’s nationwide implosion. Late last month the state insurance commissioner, Julie Mix McPeak, approved premium increases of up to 62% in a bid to save the exchange set up under the Affordable Care Act. “I would characterize the exchange market in Tennessee as very near collapse,” she said.

Then last week BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee announced it would leave three of the state’s largest exchange markets—Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville. “We have experienced losses approaching $500 million over the course of three years on ACA plans,” the company said, “which is unsustainable.” As a result, more than 100,000 Tennesseans will be forced to seek out new coverage for 2017.

BlueCross is only the latest insurer to head for the exits. Community Health Alliance, the insurance co-op established under ObamaCare, is winding down due to financial failure, leaving 30,000 people without coverage. UnitedHealthcare said in April it is departing Tennessee’s exchange after significant losses. That’s another 41,000 people needing new plans.

GRUBER: “American voters are too stupid to understand the difference

All told, more than 60% of our state’s ObamaCare consumers will lose their coverage heading into 2017. When they go in search of a replacement plan, they will confront two unfortunate realities: a dearth of options and skyrocketing costs.

Seventy-three out of Tennessee’s 95 counties will have only one insurer on the exchange, meaning no meaningful competition whatsoever. In regions where BlueCross BlueShield is pulling out, there will be two remaining major carriers, Cigna and Humana. The only large metro area with more options will be Chattanooga.

As the Instupundit opines, “Leave it to government to force a marketplace into existence, where people are coerced into buying something many of them can’t afford to use, and which sellers still lose money selling. And then leave it to government to blame free markets for the failure.”

Trump should pound this over and over again in the next debate, especially the fact that Hillary is all in on a failed system and her own husband knows it to be crazy.

Barack Obama Has Tense Exchange With CNN’s Jake Tapper Over why he won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ After Asked By Gold Star Mom


Watch the video below and listen to Barack Obama’s twisted logic in answering the question as to why he does not use the term, ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ It sounds more like he cares about not offending Muslims than he does identifying who our enemy is. By some how not saying radical Islamic terrorists that means that not all Muslimes are terrorists. Really? Actually, by stating our enemy is radical Islamic terrorists differentiates radical Islam from the rest of Islam. Then at the 5:50 mark of the video, Jake Tapper confronts Obama and it gets testy. The laugh line has to be when Obama says, I don’t want to interject partisan politics in this.” Are you kidding, that’s all Obama has done since he took office is to play partisan politics and divide this country.

The only thing Obama has unified anyone about was the bi-partisan over-ride of his veto on the 9-11 lawsuit bill.

Business Insider:

President Barack Obama sparred with CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday night in a tense exchange over Obama’s refusal to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”

During a CNN town-hall event focusing on the US military, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked Obama why he wouldn’t use the term.

“The truth of the matter is that this is an issue that has been sort of manufactured, because there is no doubt, and I’ve said repeatedly that where we see terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or ISIL, they have perverted and distorted and tried to claim the mantle of Islam for an excuse, for basically barbarism and death,” Obama said.

“These are people who kill children, kill Muslims, take sex slaves — there’s no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do,” he added.

Obama later seemed to allude to Trump as he continued to answer Houchins’ question.

“I’ll just be honest with you: The dangers where we get loose in this language, particularly when a president or people aspiring to become president get loose with this language, you can see in some of the language that we use, in talking about Muslim-Americans here and the notion that somehow we’d start having religious tests in who can come in the country and who’s investigated and whether the Bill of Rights applies to them in the same way,” Obama said.

Trump has often said while campaigning that the US should administer some sort of test to immigrants to determine whether they have terrorist sympathies.

Tapper interjected to point out the allusion to Trump, and the exchange between him and Obama grew tense.

Here’s how it played out:

Tapper: Just to interject …

Obama: Yes?

Tapper: You were clearly talking about the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, just then. You think his …

Obama: No, I wasn’t. But …

Tapper: You weren’t?

Obama: No, I …

Tapper: Well, you just said …

Obama: I would just say this, Jake, because …

Tapper: … aspiring to this office …

Obama: No, but it’s not unique to the Republican nominee. And again, I’m trying to be careful. We’re on a military base. I don’t want to insert partisan politics into this. I think that there have been a number of public figures where you start hearing commentary that is dangerous because what it starts doing is it starts dividing us up as Americans.

9/11 Moment Of Silence at Pentagon Moved Up Because Obama Was Impatient


UNREAL, the moment of silence was originally slotted to take place at 9:37 AM, the time at which the Pentagon was attacked on September 11, 2001, but ended up taking place a few minutes early. The Daily Caller is reporting that this took place in order to accommodate a restless President Barack Obama. Are you kissing me? Obama, who has never been on time for any event, suddenly is impatient and moves up the moment of silence of a day meant to remember and honor the fallen on 9-11.This is just yet another example in a long line of them during Obama’s presidency where he thinks he is more entitled and important than “We the People.”

Because its all about him


A moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama, a Department of Defense official told The Daily Caller.

A source close to the situation told TheDC that Obama arrived early to the memorial service — which took place at the Pentagon — and wanted to get things started early.

A Department of Defense official confirmed that the moment of silence was moved up a few minutes and that Obama was the one who made the decision, saying the president “moved early.”

Powerline opines and I could not agree more, In remarks delivered after the moment of silence was over, Obama stated:

The question before us, as always, is: How do we preserve the legacy of those we lost? How do we live up to their example? And how do we keep their spirit alive in our own hearts?

It seems like little to ask that a moment of silence scheduled for the time the Pentagon was hit be observed at that time. If there’s a compelling reason to move the observance up, so be it.

But if, as reported, Obama moved up the moment of silence because he was restless, I say he did not “live up to the example” of “those we lost.”

How Obamacare Rate Increases Could Affect the 2016 Elections for President, Senate and House


As reported at The Politico, Obamacare sticker shock hits key Senate races and could affect the outcome of many political races in the Senate and House. However, the dirty little secret is that massive Obamacare rate increases on insureds could also swing the presidential vote. Welcome to the reality of Obamacare and Barack Obama’s “UNAFFORDABLE” healthcare act that was one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated on We the People. The rate increases are escalating out of control and insurance companies are leaving Obamacare as fast as they can.


As insurers push large premium increases for 2017 Obamacare plans, some of the steepest hikes have been requested by insurers in crucial swing states that could determine control of the Senate.

In nine of 11 states with competitive Senate races, at least one insurer seeks to hike rates for Obamacare customers by at least 30 percent next year:Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield in Pennsylvania wants to jack up average premiums by more than 40 percent. In Wisconsin, three insurers have asked for rate hikes of more than 30 percent. In New Hampshire, two of the five carriers want to sell plans with rate increase above 30 percent.

The potential sticker shock — coupled with the likelihood many consumers will have fewer choices next year after major insurers scale back their exchange participation — creates a potential political opening for Republican candidates, especially since the next Obamacare enrollment season starts one week before Election Day.

“People who are feeling it in their pocketbooks are going to be very unhappy about [rate hikes],” said Brian Walsh, a former communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “You would expect to see this will be part of the campaign messaging for House and Senate Republicans. … If it hasn’t started, it will be coming.”


While Donald Trump often cites eye-popping rate hikes as proof the health care law is a “disaster,” rate hikes haven’t yet emerged as a major campaign issue in most Senate races — although several Republicans said they plan to spotlight the issue in the fall.

In Indiana, where Indianapolis-based Insurance giant Anthem wants to raise Obamacare premiums by as much as 36 percent, Rep. Todd Young, the Republican candidate for Indiana’s open seat, is already making the rate hikes an issue against former Sen. Evan Bayh his Democratic challenger. Bayh voted for Obamacare but didn’t run for reelection in 2010.

But it is not just battleground states, its all states that these ridiculous double digit insurance rate increases are coming with is the underlying dirty little secret of the 2016 elections. Americans awake to the real truth of Obamacare, its not affordable and not sustainable. Wow, who was saying that 7 years ago?

 In Vermont, the proposed 2017 premium increase for the average silver plan that covers a 50-year-old, nonsmoking male is a whopping 44 percent, going up to $685 per month, Avalere said.

The proposed price hike for a similar man and plan in Oregon, however, is 22 percent, up to $540 per month, Avalere said.

Other double-digit price hikes for that kind of plan are proposed in Virginia (19 percent), Maine (18 percent) and Maryland (18 percent).

Former Cheers Actress Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for Playing Golf During Louisiana Floods

Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.

Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.

Kirstie Alley_Obama

Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.

The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.

She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.


Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana

Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.

Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
