Obamacare & The Negative Economic Impact On Women

Leave a comment

This is from the Liberty Alliance.

The DemocRats say it is the GOP that has declared war on women.

The DemocRats say the GOP policies harm women economically.

I say the DemocRats  are full of crap.

American women, no matter which political party they belong to, will feel the ‘economic pain’ from Obamacare in many areas of life for both themselves and their families in 2014 and 2015. There will be talking around the kitchen table as President Obama and Democrats want, but it will not be about how to sign up for Obamacare. The conversation will be about the choices women will have to make to keep their standard of living and how to figure out what healthcare issues are the most important.

Why?

The roll out of effects of Obamacare are still to coming for women that work in corporate American with the open enrollment systems beginning next fall. Millions and millions of women could be left out in the cold getting sick without proper healthcare coverage. What surprises could there be for American Women?

How will I pay for higher medical premium for myself?

How will I pay a higher premium for family coverage?

Why can’t I receive medical treatment from my current doctors?

Why have my medical benefits changed from last year?

Why have my deductibles been raised?

There are so many variables that even the government agencies and politicians that are dealing with regulating the American health care industry don’t have a clue what is going on. It is important to note that there are many government agencies (dozens) that regulate healthcare system (more than nuclear energy) that required with all of these regulatory agencies for the American Health Care Industry.

Why now?

DNC sends email defending Obama from impeachment possibility

1 Comment

This is from The Daily Caller.

The DemocRats are in panic mode.

Hopefully their paranoia will become reality.  

 

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach President Obama.

The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”

 

“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.

The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.

Obama’s staff changed key talking points on the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack; his Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle; and Obama personally lied to the American people when he told them that they could keep their existing doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare.

Obama’s expansion of executive branch authority is “setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future” according to Republican Rep. Justin Amash.

Stand with President Obama and protect Obamacare! Contribute here.

Friend — In his final press conference of 2013, President Obama shared the positive news that “more than half a million Americans have enrolled through [the Obamacare website] in the first three weeks of December alone.”

On New Year’s Day, millions of Americans will have new, affordable health coverage because of Obamacare. But despite this, unrelenting attacks from the GOP — including $4.1 million alone from the Koch brothers — have taken a drastic toll on public support for health care reform.

Rachel Maddow reports that as Obamacare starts to succeed, it will become a political liability for Republicans. But the opposite is true as well — that’s why they’ve put everything they have into destroying it now. Bottom line: if we can’t respond to the GOP’s anti-Obamacare attacks, it could lead to a wave election where Republicans take over the Senate.

That’s why Democrats need to unite behind President Obama right now and respond before the year ends. In the next 96 hours, we need to raise $250,000 for our Obamacare Rapid Response Fund so we can respond to these anti-Obamacare attacks with facts and protect our Democratic majority.

Manchin sees gun control passage still ‘difficult’ in 2014

Leave a comment

This is from The Politico.

The voters of West Viriginia need to fire this ass hat.

But are they too happily sucking on the handout teat of big 

government?

Look  at how long sheets Byrd was a Senator.

To the good people of West Virginia I am sorry if my above

 comment offends you.

I know your blameless you have not been on the big

government handout teat.

 

 

Sen. Joe Manchin says rounding up the votes to pass a bill creating background checks for gun purchases next year is going to be “difficult.”

While saying he’s “hopeful” that some would change their minds, the West Virginia Democrat acknowledged there are Democrats who opposed the bill creating background checks for gun purchases.

“Hopefully, they would maybe reconsider,” Manchin said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It’s going to be difficult to get the extra votes that we need. I’m going to be honest with you.”

Manchin, a gun owner who had a top rating from the National Rifle Association, negotiated a background check bill with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut. But the measure stalled in the Senate in April when it failed to get the needed 60 votes to advance.

Manchin said gun owners didn’t oppose background checks in theory but were concerned that government wouldn’t stop with checks.

“What we found out is that people couldn’t trust government that they would stop there,” he said.

Pelosi: GOP Failure to Extend Unemployment Benefits Practically ‘Immoral’

1 Comment

This is from CNSNews.

I do not know where to begin in response to this idiot.

Unemployment benefits have gone from a temporary

 measure to help to a welfare plan.

99 weeks is way too long for unemployment benefits.

 

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the Republican refusal to include unemployment benefits in the Ryan-Murray budget deal is immoral.

“It’s interesting to note that they rejected unemployment insurance — this is so unconscionable, it’s practically at the level of immoral to do. The people who work hard, play by the rules, lose their job through no fault of their own, are not able to get — continue to get an unemployment insurance check.”

Again, as I say, not only is it a bad idea from a humanity standpoint, but from an economic standpoint. For every dollar spent on unemployment benefits, it grows the economy by $1.52, a dollar and a half.”

Pelosi said failure to extend  jobless benefits will cost the nation 200,000 jobs next year.

Regular unemployment insurance provides benefits for up to 26 weeks, based on how long a person held a job. Extended benefits are available to people who have used up their 26 weeks.

The Ryan-Murray budget deal did not include a three-month extension, which means 1.3 million people will lose their unemployment insurance on Dec. 28.

“Unemployment insurance is insurance. It is part of a safety net, not for these individuals, but for our economy,” Pelosi siad. She called it a “safety net” for “that wonderful free-market system.”

Speaking Friday on MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe,” Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said the fight isn’t over.

“We were denied that vote, so that will be a big issue coming back in January.”

Van Hollen says Democrats would pay for the extension of unemployment benefits by “getting rid of some of these very high, excessive agriculture subsidies.”

But Pelosi said she doesn’t think Democrats should have to find money to pay for the extension of jobless benefits:

“I don’t even think it should be paid for, because you know why? It’s an emergency. And we traditionally have not paid for unemployment insurance. It’s insurance that has been paid into.

And so why — it’s a benefit that has been paid into, so why do we have to pay for it again? I don’t think we should have to. But if it’s the price that we have to pay to go forward on that, while we want to make this philosophical debate as to whether it’s an emergency and should be paid for, still, these families are suffering.”

Filibuster change clears path for Obama climate regs crackdown

Leave a comment

This is from The Hill.

The DemocRats have invoked the nuclear option so they

can save Obama.

Obama is starting crash and burn because of Obamacare.

DemocRats know liberalism fate hangs in the balance

if their liberal Obamacare agenda crashes.

So they want to ram the green agenda through so 

Obama can say he accomplished something.

 

Green groups might be the biggest winners from Senate Democrats’ decision to gut the minority party’s filibuster rights on nominations.

Their top priority — President Obama’s second-term regulations on climate change — is likely to have a better shot at surviving legal challenges once Obama’s nominees are confirmed for the crucial U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

Melinda Pierce, a policy expert for the Sierra Club, said the addition of Obama’s three nominees would be an “improvement” to the D.C. Circuit, which is second only to the Supreme Court in influence and power.

“But filling up all 11 seats, a full panel is an improvement to the current situation in the court,” Pierce said. “And we hope these additions will ensure that the climate regulations are upheld.”

Pierce also defended the three nominees — Patricia Millett, Robert Wilkins and Nina Pillard — saying they “are by no means activists.”

The decision by Senate Democrats to end the filibuster on judicial and administration nominees was decried by Republicans, who described it as a “power grab” aimed at loosening the checks on presidential power.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday said it was “clear” that Democrats were triggering the “nuclear option” to advance Obama’s agenda.

“In short, unlike the first two years of the Obama administration, there’s now a legislative check on the president. And the administration doesn’t much like checks and balances,” McConnell said.

The D.C. Circuit, which handles the majority of legal challenges to regulations, currently has eight members split evenly between Democratic and Republican appointees.

Green groups suffered a major defeat at the circuit court last year when rules to cut soot-and smog-forming power plant emissions that cross state lines were shot down. Those rules had been a pillar of Obama’s air pollution agenda, and are now before the Supreme Court.

Advocates are hoping to avoid a similar defeat when the separate, upcoming carbon emissions standards face litigation at the court, which is a near certainty.

The environmental movement was heavily involved in the fight over limiting the filibuster.

Sierra Club was part of a coalition of liberal groups and unions that pressured Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to limit the use of the filibuster through a majority vote.

Pierce said the end of the 60-vote filibuster for nominees could change the way Obama approaches judicial nominations for the rest of his term.

“It may free Obama up to be more ambitious about putting forward folks that share [the administration’s] philosophy and be less fearful because of the 60-vote threshold,” Pierce said.

The same goes for nominations to agencies, which might begin to move through the Senate faster.

That’s good news for nominees to senior roles at the EPA.

Ken Kopocis, who was nominated by Obama in 2011 to lead the EPA’s water office has yet to be confirmed by the Senate, but will likely breeze through now.

Similarly, the Sierra Club predicts a quick vote to confirm Janet McCabe as the EPA’s head of air and radiation once she is nominated. McCabe currently holds the job in an acting capacity.

“The office is central to the many air pollution regulations, for example the pending carbon standards,” Pierce said.

“The change to the filibuster rules brought forward by Senator Reid will likely mean that whoever is nominated — and we expect that will be Janet — will have an easier and certainly shorter path to confirmation.”

The League of Conservation Voters, another green group, praised Reid’s leadership.

A spokesman for the League, Jeff Gohringer, said Republicans have made “progress on environmental issues a lot harder than it needs to be.”

Republicans disagree, and are mulling a change in tactics now that the filibuster power has been weakened.

A top GOP aide in the Senate said Republican lawmakers would have to place a heightened focus on committee votes in order to stop nominees they oppose.

“Once a nominee comes to the floor, they are almost guaranteed to be confirmed, so the whole game is at the committee level now,” the aide said.

 

NBC confronts Pelosi with ‘pass it to see what’s in it’ clip; hot mess follows

Leave a comment

This is from BizPac Review.

I am speechless.

Nancy Pelosi still can’t see it.

Confronted by Meet the Press host David Gregory on Sunday about her famous Obamacare statement of 2010 — “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” — the San Francisco congresswoman didn’t give an inch.

pelosi 1“I stand by what I said there: When people see what’s in the bill, they will like it, and they will,” Pelosi said, in utter defiance of reality.

“It took a great deal for us to pass the bill. I said, ‘If we go up to the gate and the gate is locked, we’ll unlock the gate. If we can’t do that, we’ll climb the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in.’”

Set aside for a second the fact that Pelosi might have thought she was talking about the Democratic approach to immigration. The former House speaker had no visible qualms about defending the handiwork she and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid produced during the disastrous years, from 2008-2010, that Democrats held both houses of Congress.

“It doesn’t matter what we’re saying here,” Pelosi nattered. “What matters is what happens at the kitchen table of the American people.”

Actually, what matters is what’s been happening with congressional Democrats who aren’t lucky enough to be from San Francisco and who abandoned President Obama Friday by voting for the “Keep Your Health Plan Act,” sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Ill.

What matters is what’s going to happen to Democrats who don’t start listening to their constituents when election time rolls around in November.

What matters is that the American people are seeing what’s in the bill. It’s what conservatives have been saying was in the bill for three years now.

They’re seeing it. And, no matter what Nancy Pelosi says, they don’t like it at all.

 

Howard Dean: I wonder if Obama has ‘the legal authority’ for this Obamacare fix

Leave a comment

This is from The Daily Caller.

Howard Dopey Dean has questions about Obama

making  changes to Obamacare.

What doesn’t the GOP ask the same questions?

It is time for the GOP to stop being DemocRats light.

Immediately following President Barack Obama’s press conference on Thursday — in which he proposed a one-year fix for Obamacare — former Democratic National Committee chairman and Vermont Gov. Howard Dean question if Obama actually could legally do what he had proposed.

“A) I wonder he had the legal authority to do this since this was a congressional bill that set this up,” Dean said. “And b) I stick to what I said before the president came on, which is if you want to make it work, you’ve got to get people in the system. And the website is not going to work for awhile — have a call center someplace.”

Dean noted that the fifth year of a presidency is an historically bad year and, despite the low spirits among Obama supporters, things will get better.

 “This will get better,” Dean added. “I mean, the fifth year is an awful year, a lot of pundits have said. It’s true. It’s a lot of piling on. I think some of his own supporters are demoralized. The website will get fixed. This will get better and Obamacare will be the law of the land and guess what? It will work.”Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/14/howard-dean-i-wonder-if-obama-has-the-legal-authority-for-this-obamacare-fix/#ixzz2l05qNyEQ

Dems vow passage of background check bill

Leave a comment

This is from The Hill.

To prevent this defacto gun registration we need

To keep the pressure on the House and Senate.

Especially the House because more House than

Senate members are up for reelection. 

 

Far from dead, legislation expanding background checks before gun sales still has a chance of passing this Congress, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate said Wednesday.

While the background check issue has been dormant on Capitol Hill since the Senate shot down such a proposal earlier in the year, Democrats argue that enough pressure on House GOP leaders would return the topic to prominence – and force a floor vote – before next year’s mid-term elections.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said the combination of public outrage at mass shootings and an animated advocacy front has created conditions like those that catalyzed the enactment of stricter gun laws roughly 20 years ago.

“We have the same conditions now that we had back then, which we didn’t really have even five years ago,” Schumer said during a press conference in the Capitol commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.

“So we’re going to pass this law,” he added. “We are going to finish the job and pass background checks and then move on and do other things we have to do to get guns off the streets and stop gun violence.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) echoed that message, pressing GOP leaders to take up the background check bill and arguing that a majority of House lawmakers would support it if they did. House passage, Pelosi continued, would then increase the odds of the bill clearing the Senate.

“I believe if the bill were taken up in the House that it would pass. And when it passes the House, some senators … would no longer have the excuse, ‘It’s no use my risking my political career because it’s not going anyplace in the House,’ ” Pelosi said. “Let’s turn that around, pass it in the House and just put the pressure on to take up the bill. Why not?”

They might not want to hold their breath. Despite a long series of high-profile mass shootings in recent years, GOP leaders have shown no interest in tougher gun laws. On top of that, only 14 legislative days remain scheduled in the House this year, and next year’s mid-term elections will only raise the hurdles higher for contentious legislation like tougher gun laws.

Rep. Mike Thompson (Calif.), who heads the Democrats’ gun-violence prevention task force, acknowledged Wednesday that it will be difficult to get a vote while the Republicans control the House.

If Pelosi were still Speaker, he said, “we wouldn’t be here today, we’d be over at the White House at the bill-signing ceremony.”

Sponsored by Thompson and Peter King (R-N.Y.), the background check bill would require private sellers operating at gun shows and online to screen potential buyers to weed out felons, spousal abusers, illegal immigrants and other categories of prohibited buyer. Under current federal law, only licensed gun dealers are required to conduct those screenings.

An identical bill, sponsored by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), was shot down by the upper chamber in April after winning 55 supporters – five shy of the number needed to defeat a GOP filibuster.

Although the National Rifle Association (NRA) had endorsed universal background checks after the 1999 shooting massacre at Columbine High School, the gun lobbying group now opposes an expansion of such screenings. Along with most Republicans, the group contends the change would shift new burdens on gun owners and threaten Second Amendment rights.

Thompson, a hunter and Vietnam veteran, is quick to reject those arguments.

“The Second Amendment does not give criminals, the dangerously mentally ill, domestic abusers the right to own and buy and use a firearm,” Thompson said.

The Thompson-King bill has 185 co-sponsors, including three Republicans, but Pelosi said there are “at least 30 more” House lawmakers who would support the measure if it came up for a vote.

“A large number of Republicans have assured Mr. Thompson and others of us that they will be there if the bill comes to the floor,” Pelosi said.

Supporters of expanded background checks are quick to point out that public opinion polls show overwhelming support for the legislation.

“Ninety percent of the American people believe in background checks. It’s not a courageous vote to make,” Thompson said. “Will it solve every issue? No. But it is, in fact, our first line of defense. … It’s the one thing government can do.”

Pelosi noted that the last time major gun reforms were passed it cost many supporters their careers in Congress. But it was worth the sacrifice, she argued, to keep guns out of dangerous hands.

“Nobody’s political career is more important than protecting the American people,” she said. “Who among us is of such value that we would not say, ‘I’ll take a risk so that our kids don’t have to take a risk.’ ”
