Sen. Angus King (ME-I) Says, “There’s no such thing as Obamacare.”

I BET DEMOCRATS AND THOSE WHO CAUCUS WITH THEM BET THEIR BOTTOM DOLLAR THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS OBAMACARE …

Democrats and Indy liberals can’t run away from Obama’s signature piece of legislation fast enough. Now those who brought you Obamacare want to tell you there is no such thing as Obamacare. Nothing can be trusted what comes out of their mouths.

This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Independent Senator Angus King from Maine, who caucuses with Democrats, stated that there was no such thing as Obamacare.This clown is actually trying to make it appear that it is the private insurance companies that are to blame and use their name. Trust me from personal first hand experience, HHS is dictating to all carriers every aspect of how these plans look, walk and talk.

Oh, only if that were true and we could dare to dream. However, sadly there is Obamacare and as we are reminded by Democrats, it is the law of the land. Make no mistake about it Sen. King, the Democrats that you align yourself with are solely responsible for this disastrous healthcare train wreck as it was rammed down the throats of all Americans by a strictly Democrat partisan vote in the Senate (60-40) and in the House. Not one Republican in either chamber voted for Obamacare. Democrats own it and Democrats will choke on it!

The Weekly Standard:

“Two points if I may, sir,” says Fox host Chris Wallace. “One, then why is Harry Reid saying he’s not going to allow a vote on the fixes? And, two, speak directly and briefly, because we’re about to run out of time, to Senator Barrasso’s comment that a lot of doctors, a lot of hospitals are being excluded by what Obamacare is offering.”

“Now, now that’s a big — There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance,” said King.

Sen. John Barrasso (WY-R), also appearing on FNS, stated regarding the so-called 6 million sign-ups for Obamacare, that the “White House was cooking the books”. and claiming that the signup numbers are far different than the enrollment numbers versus those that have actually paid their first premium.

“I don’t think [six million] means anything, Chris,” he began. “I think they’re cooking the books on this. People want to know the answers to that. They also want to know, when this is all said and done, what kind of insurance will those actually have?”

“Will they be able to keep the doctor that they want?” he continued. “How much more is it going to cost them? And we know that the best cancer hospitals in the country want very little to do with people that actually buy this insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.

Hey Angus, don’t tell Barack Obama there is no such thing as Obamacare. Because that would mean he has done zero as president and remember, Barack does not mind calling it Obamacare because He cares.

Top Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Admits Pushing Hollywood Writers to Obamacare into scripts of TV Shows and Movies … Joseph Goebbels Would Be So Proud

UNBELIEVABLE ACTIONS OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ACTUALLY THIS SHOULD BE TERRIFYING TO AMERICANS.

To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda.
In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics.
Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.
I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right.  (Joseph Goebbels)

What might be most shocking about the below Valerie Jarrett interview with ‘Top That’ on Pop Sugar.com is that Democrats and especially the Obama Administration does not even hide it anymore that they and the media are the Democrat-Media Complex. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was out in LA this week meeting with television and movie producers and writers to encourage them to include favorable Obamacare mentions in their scripts. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! A government going to the media to shill their agenda for script and product placement to make it appear that they are mainstream and brainwash the people with propaganda. This is still the United States, is it not?

The Weekly Standard:

“That’s the cool thing,” a host said to the presidential advisor. “You’ve been reaching out to people that are, you know, outside of the norm of what the president might work with. Who else are you working with? Like celebrities, personalities, things like that?”

“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.

 Joseph  Goebbels, Nazi Minister of propaganda, would be so proud of Valerie Jarrett’s actions.

Control of the arts and media was not just a matter of personnel. Soon the content of every newspaper, book, novel, play, film, broadcast and concert, from the level of nationally-known publishers and orchestras to local newspapers and village choirs, was subject to supervision by the Propaganda Ministry, although a process of self-censorship was soon effectively operating in all these fields, leaving the Ministry in Berlin free to concentrate on the most politically sensitive areas such as insuring that both major newspapers, and the new far-reaching, instantaneous state radio presented the unified Nazi worldview. In his 1933 speech, “Radio as the Eighth Great Power” Goebbels said:

“We .. intend a principled transformation in the worldview of our entire society, a revolution of the greatest possible extent that will leave nothing out, changing the life of our nation in every regard …

The following are Joseph  Goebbels’ quotes. It would be pretty difficult to tell whether they were from the Nazi minister of propaganda, or Team Obama:

  • “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” (Joseph Goebbels)
  • “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” (Joseph Goebbels)

Leading Democratic Pollster Celinda Lake Says to Democrats, “Don’t Defend” Obamacare … Also Predicts “Huge Turnout Disadvantage” in 2014 for Dems

Democrats Obamacare chickens are coming home to roost …

Earlier this week, following the release of the George Washington University Battleground poll, leading Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, whose firm Lake Research Partners provides the Democratic analysis for that bipartisan poll, told Democrats two things they did not want to hear. One, defend Obamacare at your own peril and two, the GOP is going to have a huge voter turnout advantage in the 2014 midterm elections. At a briefing hosted by the Christian Science Monitor Lake said, “In terms of Obamacare, don’t defend it. Say it was flawed from the beginning, and we’re going to fix it.” Lake also said that the poll indicated that 64% of Republicans say they are “extremely likely” to vote in November’s midterms, compared with 57% of Democrats. Obamacare will be an albatross around the political necks of Democrats.

Full poll results can be read here.

GW_Battleground poll_032014

A leading Democratic pollster predicted a “sobering” turnout disadvantage for her party in this year’s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate “a bigger economic agenda” this fall.

“There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge,” Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. “There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it’s really dramatic this time.”

Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing Democratic intensity by seven points.

The poll indicated that 64% of Republicans say they are “extremely likely” to vote in November’s midterms, compared with 57% of Democrats.

So, what does she mean say it was flawed from the beginning? That Obama and Democrats knew that Obamacare was based on a lie to the America people that they could keep their healthcare plan, doctors and hospital, if they liked them and they voted to pass it anyhow? Going to fix it? How does one fix something that is so inherently flawed and based on a lie? How does one fix something so unpopular and most of the pain has not even been experienced by the American people because it has been purposely delayed by Barack Obama for political reasons.

Obamacare was never a popular idea, bill or law with the American people. It never garnered a majority of popular support with “We the People”. Now even those who were some what in favor or were willing to give it a chance realize it was all based on a lie. The 2014 midterm elections will right the wrong of the 2012 elections that we now know was a fraudulent election based upon lies and scandals.

Iowa’s Republican Senate Candidate Joni Ernst Says, I’ll Castrate DC’s Spending and Cut Pork

Let’s make DC pork spender squeal like a pig!!!

Joni Ernst, a GOP candidate for the US Senate in Iowa has certainly made a splash on the scene with a memorable political ad. If you have not already watched it, please take a look at the video below. The Conservative Republican candidate promises to cut pork when she gets to Washington. What are her qualifications you ask? Joni Ernst grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm that’s how, so when she gets to DC, she will know how to cut pork. OUCH!!! Ernst promises to cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare and balance the budget. Sounds like exactly what is needed to turn things around in the Senate and save America. Joni Ernst and several other Republicans are vying for the open Iowa Senate seat of the retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.

“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm, so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”
“My parents taught us to live within our means. It’s time to force Washington to do the same.”

 Former Alaska governor and Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin is endorsing state Sen. Joni Ernst, a candidate in the Iowa Senate race, following Ernst’s tongue-in-cheek ad about castrating D.C. pork.The endorsement was made on Palin’s Facebook page:

“If Nebraska’s Deb Fischer can see through the bull in Washington, then Iowa’s Joni Ernst can help her cut through the pork,” Palin wrote. “Growing up on a hog farm in Southwest Iowa, Joni has taken her ‘pork cutting’ skills to the Iowa State Senate, where she has been a champion for life, small government, and lower taxes – voting for the largest tax cut in Iowa history.”

Posted alongside a picture of Ernst in uniform, Palin was paying homage to the TV ad Ernst released on Tuesday.

More from Real Clear Politics on the other GOP candidates vying for the nomination and missteps of Democrat leading candidate U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, who was caught on camera at the closed-press event suggesting that Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is unfit to become the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.

Ernst is one of a half-dozen Republicans vying to take on U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, the likely Democratic nominee, for the right to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin.

Braley has been considered the favorite but faced significant blowback this week over comments he made at a Texas fundraiser. The four-term congressman was caught on camera at the closed-press event suggesting that Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is unfit to become the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman — should the GOP win control of the upper chamber — because he is a “farmer from Iowa who never went to law school.”

Braley later apologized for his remark, but Iowa Republicans seized upon it in an effort to portray the Democrat as being out of touch with the values of the farming-heavy state.

Another Illegal Delay: Obama Administration Extends Obamacare March Deadline Into April … What Happened to Sebelius Saying, “there is no delay beyond March 31?”

Another day and another illegal Obamacare delay …

The Obama administration has just made another arbitrary and illegal delay in providing Americans more time to enroll for Obamacare. As reported at the Washington Post, the goal posts have been moved again by the Obama administration and another delay has been implemented for Obamacare enrollment from March 31 to mid-April. But get this astonishing requirement, the White House is allowing the “honor system” for the extension. These people are just making this crap up as they go along. This is beyond unbelievable that all of this stuff is being done on a whim depending of the bad news of the day of the enrollment numbers that the Obama administration claims they don’t have access to. Is it any wonder why our country is so screwed up under this president? Obamacare is just a microcosm of how Obama handles everything.

Obama_constitution

Statutes, what statutes … I am above the law

The Obama administration has decided to give extra time to Americans who say that they are unable to enroll in health plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline.

Federal officials confirmed Tuesday evening that all consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension.

Under the new rules, people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. This method will rely on an honor system; the government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth.

The rules, which will apply to the federal exchanges operating in three dozen states, will essentially create a large loophole even as White House officials have repeatedly said that the March 31 deadline was firm. The extra time will not technically alter the deadline but will create a broad new category of people eligible for what’s known as a special enrollment period.

What happened to change the fact that Obamacare enrollment was not going to be extended? Wasn’t it just earlier this month that a CMS spokesperson and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated there would be no more delays? HHS official Julie Bataille said. “In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.” And on March 12, 2014 Sebelius testified before Congress as such and said specifically, there would be no Obamacare enrollment delay past March 31?

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokeswoman Julie Bataille said during a conference call on Tuesday that ‘we have no plans to extend the open enrollment period’ that began amid fits and starts on October 1.

‘In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014,’ she said.

On Wednesday, Republican Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp asked Sebelius if she agreed.

‘I haven’t seen their statements,’ she replied, despite having been on the conference call, ‘but there is no delay beyond March 31.’

As for the extended deadline on the honor system. Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com might just have the quote of the day … “Why should the Obama administration care to determine whether a potential enrollee is telling the truth? The Obama administration doesn’t even care if the Obama administration is telling the truth.” AMEN!!!

 

Barack Obama & Vladimir Putin Phone Conversation on ‘The Tonight Show’ … Obamacare is a Joke in Russia, Too

Imagine a government forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want. In fact, what if 38.9% were in favor and 53.6% were against, or a -14.7% average of people were against what a government had forced on its people. Are we referring to Putin, Russia and Crimea? Hardly, we are talking about Barack Obama, Democrats and Obamacare. How bad is it when we can compare what Russia does to it’s citizens to that what those in power in America does to theirs?

From Jilly Fallon and The Tonight Show:

Obama - “Don’t you see what you’re doing though? You’re forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want.”
Putin – “Yes, in Russia we have word for this … Obamacare“.

Nancy Pelosi Thinks Obamacare is a Winner … San Fran Nan Chides Journalist for using the Term “Obamacare” … It’s the Affordable Care Act, People!!!

HA, House Democrat Minority leader thinks Obamacare is a winner and does her best “Rainman’ imitation.  … It’s affordable, definitely, definitely affordable.

Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) was asked by the media whether Obamacare was a winner or loser for a politician in a swing district. Her response was not only ridiculous spin, what followed was just down right embarrassing.  Responding to reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats and then chided the journalist for using the term “Obamacare.” By the way nancy, I hate to burst your bubble, but it is not affordable.

In response to one reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats, chiding the journalist for using the term “Obamacare” in the first place:

It’s the Affordable Care Act, people. Even though it…isn’t affordable for millions upon millions of people, including most of the previously-uninsured population. Also, it’s a real headache to keep up with the lexicon rules. For awhile, “Obamacare” was a vicious Republican slur. Then it was totally fine to use because Team Obama embraced it. Now that the administration has backed away from the term (hilarious context here), Pelosi is back to being a stickler for formality.

I guess the out to lunch Pelosi failed to get the memo that at year 4, Obamacare is as unpopular as ever. More at Real Clear Politics.

As the four-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act approaches, the law remains unpopular with the public. Currently, 53% disapprove of the 2010 health care law while 41% approve of the law. Opinion of the measure is virtually unchanged since last September.

Hmm, I thought Barack Obama did not mind when people call it Obamacare?

Barack Obama, the Liar in Chief Strikes Again … Health Industry Officials say ObamaCare Related Premiums Will Double in Parts of the Country,

But I thought Obama said under Obamacare our premiums would go down … Not so says  Health Industry Officials.

What would the day be like without out another Barack Obama lie regarding Obamacare? The Hill is reporting that healthcare industry officials are saying that O-care related premiums will double in some parts of the country. This is in direct contrast to what Obama promised and (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continually spins. As one industry official said, “It’s pretty shortsighted because I think everybody knows that the way the exchange has rolled out … is going to lead to higher costs.” Gee, ya think? Let alone they have missed their mark badly on the number of enrollees, and more importantly, the number of young, healthy, non-subsidy seeking enrollees.

Obama_Biden

Don’t worry Barack, they won’t find out the truth until it’s too late, Hope & Change, Hope & Change, lower premiums …  ah-ha-ha-ha!!!

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.

The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015.

The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but grow more slowly than in the past.

“The increases are far less significant than what they were prior to the Affordable Care Act,” the secretary said in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee.

Her comment baffled insurance officials, who said it runs counter to the industry’s consensus about next year.

“It’s pretty shortsighted because I think everybody knows that the way the exchange has rolled out … is going to lead to higher costs,” said one senior insurance executive who requested anonymity.

Will some benefit from Obama, certainly. But it does not even come close the the amount of people that will be adversely affected. It just goes to show you that if a lie is told long enough and loud  enough, and not questioned in any responsible manner, it can become the truth by an apathetic people. Oh yea, and if you like your healthcare plan and doctor, you will be able to keep them too.

Obama promises the applauding lemmings that their premiums will go down under Obamacare

Remember when Obama said that for those who get their healthcare insurance through their workplace, that through Obamacare your employers would see their premiums decrease by 3000% and would be able to give you a raise? Buying that American? Why do you think Obama has delayed the employer mandate for Obamacare, maybe because that is where an overwhelming majority of Americans receive their healthcare and the premiums would escalate, not go down? Or because your employer would toss you off the plan and onto Obamacare? And maybe, just maybe to get by the 2014 and 2014 elections.

Now Obama is promising saving families an average of $2500 a year per family

STOP WITH THE SHILLING OF OBAMACARE … Obama Team Uses March Madness to Sell Health Care Plan

These people will find a way to destroy anything fun … Obamacare Bracketology … STOP THE MADNESS!!!

As if Obamacare is not already the most over-marketed product ever. Now the Obama administration are launching a new marketing campaign wrapped around the NCAA men’s and women’s college basketball tournaments. Seriously? First of all, Obama should not be filling out NCAA brackets. I would like to think that the President of the United States might have more important things to do. At least, he better! Also, stop attempting to pick winners and losers. With your track record, it has been mainly losers. Could we Americans just have something that is free from Obamacare? Please, we beg you!!!

Obama_BendOver2

For the Obama administration, March Madness is another chance to press young people — particularly young men — to sign up for health care.

Health care officials are launching a new marketing campaign wrapped around the NCAA men’s and women’s college basketball tournaments that start this week.

Starting Monday, Obama, some of his aides and celebrity athletes who back the health care plan will conduct interviews, make public service ads and use social media appeals as a key deadline looms on March 31.

Citing the popularity of college basketball during the tournament season known as March Madness, White House senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness said, “We’re putting on a full-court press to remind our fellow fans that there are two weeks left to sign up for quality, affordable health insurance.”

It’s Official, Democrats are in Panic Mode Ahead of 2014 Midterm Elections … Some Veteran House Dems To Retire

The New York Times has officially declared that the Democrats should be worried ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Why so concerned, Barack Obama’s sinking job approval ratings, the GOP’s special election House win in Florida 13 and the continued dissatisfaction with Obamacare to name a few. Democrats have been in denial for quite some time when it comes to their chances of success in 2014. However, Barack Obama has become toxic and so have his policies and agenda.

Of course Barack Obama sent Baghdad Bob White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer to go out on ‘Meet the Press‘ this past Sunday and spin the obvious. Pfeiffer said,“the president will be an asset in every way possible to help these candidates” and that Democrats are on the right side of the issue that matters most to Americans, jobs and the economy. Okay, try not to laugh. Really, Americans agree with Obama/Democrats on the economy, polls would say a much different story.

Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.

The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates.

The latest in a cascade of bad news came Friday when Scott Brown, a former senator from Massachusetts, announced an exploratory committee to challenge the incumbent Democrat in New Hampshire, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and when the Republican-aligned “super PAC” American Crossroads said it would spend $600,000 to help his effort.

Earlier, another top-tier Republican recruit, Representative Cory Gardner, decided to challenge Senator Mark Udall of Colorado; the two races create unanticipated opportunities improving Republicans’ chances to take control of the Senate. No prominent Democrats predict their party will win back the House.

Over the weekend on CNN on ‘Inside Politics’, John King said that because of the results in the Florida 13 special election, look for a few more veteran House Democrats to retire seeing the handwriting on the wall and no chance for Democrats to win back the House.

Watch in the week or so ahead for a few more retirements by veteran House Democrats.

I’m told the Florida special election results were the last straw for at least two and perhaps more House Democrats facing tough 2014 races.
