See We Told You So – Insurers Folding Under the Weight of Obamacare

by: the Common Constitutionalist

This was the plan from the very beginning.

In 2003, at an AFL-CIO (USSR) symposium, Obama said: “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care plan.” He then stated that there is no reason why the richest country to ever exist, “that spends 14% of its GNP on healthcare cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody.”

Most of us remember these sage words from then nobody Obama. But even back then nobody Obama was playing word games, mixing “healthcare” with “health insurance,” as if they are the same. Now that Obamacare has been instituted for a few years, the public is finding out that “health insurance” does not equal “healthcare.”

He then went on to say that “we may not get there immediately.” He told the audience that, “first we gotta take back the White House, we gotta take back the Senate and we gotta take back Congress.” He obviously underestimated how easy it would eventually be to roll over the Republicans.

In 2007 Obama said there would have to be a “transition process,” going from private to single payer. He stated: “I can envision a decade out, or 15 years out or 20 years out. read more

Proud to be a Member of the False Prophet Brigade

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So we, and the conservatives we support, are false prophets. We and our candidates are evidently just “spreading noise.”

At least that’s what outgoing Speaker of the House and head congressional hack, John Boehner thinks. And I’m sure he’s not the only one that thinks this. Every establishment Republican in both the House and Senate thinks as does Boehner.

So rather than exiting quietly like a real man, he instead goes on CNN to whine about conservatives to those who will be “understanding” of the speaker’s plight. Of course they will. They’ll happily have anyone on who will bash conservatives.

Boehner begins by whining about the conservatives wanting to get rid of Obamacare even at the cost of shutting down the government in 2013. He tells the CNN crew that it simply wasn’t going to happen. He says, “this plan never had a chance.”

He then complains that in 2013 over the August recess, his “Republican” colleagues were getting all this pressure from home to repeal Obamacare in what he said was a “fool’s errand.” So really, according to Boehner, it’s all our fault. Us, an evil politicians like Ted Cruz. read more

Podcast – Black man Guns Down White Cop – College Textbook Written by Obamacare Architect – Rise of the Mutant Lice

On this episode I discuss the cowardly act of a black man who guns down an innocent white police officer while he’s pumping gas. College students across our great nation are being assigned a public finance textbook written by Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare. And hide your children!

Podcast – Trump Anchor Baby Uproar – No More Repeal and Replace – Google Determines Election

In this episode I discuss The Donald’s latest “Outrageous” remark, which wasn’t. The nerve of him calling our country’s greatest gift, the children of illegal invaders, “Anchor babies.”

Pundits say the GOP’s greatest challenge is to repeal and replace Obamacare with something even better! Yeah! Replacing one government program with another – and can Google actually determine the outcome of our next presidential election? Maybe so. read more

Podcast – Militarization of the Police – Paul Krugman is an Idiot & Robber Foils Himself

In this episode I discuss how and why our cops are becoming a domestic army and how wrong it is. If there was a question about Paul Krugman’s competence, there shouldn’t be – he’s incompetent, and pepper spray is definitely not a criminal’s best friend.

Eugenics and Obamacare – And So It Begins

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When people think of eugenics the natural tendency is to conjure up images of Hitler and the Nazis trying to create the master race. Yet many are unaware that the eugenics movement began in America and in the early 20th century, California and New York were at the forefront.

Funded by the Carnegie Institution and Rockefeller Foundation, researchers at major universities such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Princeton explored various methods of forced segregation, sterilization and extermination of entire bloodlines.

In 1909 California passed laws allowing eugenicists to forcibly sterilize 60,000 citizens, excluding thousands from marrying and segregating thousands more. They masked their dirty deeds with flowery titles such as the Human Betterment Foundation – because who could be against the betterment of humanity. This is not unlike the Planned Parenthood abortion factories being named women’s health centers – because who could be against women’s health.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped fund the eugenics movement in Germany and was the benefactor of a program for an infamous practitioner of the pseudoscience, Josef Mengele. read more

The Good, The Bad and The Wooden – Responses to the Obama Show

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Well, I tried. I tried to watch the State of the Union speech, but I couldn’t do it. I even turned back to it a few times – heard about the 1 percenters who need to give back to the middle class. I don’t know how that will work? Answer – it won’t and it isn’t supposed to.

I also heard his challenge to try to support a family on just $15,000 per year and those who think it’s possible should go ahead and try. That’s bogus and he knows it, for far less than 1% of workers support a family on minimum wage.

Joni

Ernst

Okay, that’s enough of the buffoon in chief. We all knew what he was going to say before he said it anyway.

As for the Republican response, I can describe the performance of Iowa Senator Joni Ernst as… well… what’s the word? It’s not electric. It’s not inspiring, great or motivating. It’s more like… wooden, as if Geppetto had just fashioned her.

It was a major disappointment with its typical Republican “repeal and replace” Obamacare message. But considering who put her up – the establishment Republicans – that’s to be expected.

Then it was on to the Tea Party Express rebuttal of “The One’s” speech. Now don’t get me wrong – I’m glad Congressman Curtis Clawson was both humbled and grateful to give the Tea Party Express response, but he like Ernst lacked any passion. I mean zero appeal. read more

Congress – Just Do Something Positive!

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Ronald Reagan famously said of the government solution to everything: “If it moves tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it.”

Everyone knows if you want less of something, tax it. And that is true not only of goods but also innovation.

Now I hold out very little hope that the next Congress will do anything positive. I think the illegal executive amnesty is a shell game where Congressman and Senators talk tough now but backroom deals have been crafted between the Dems and the Republicans to make it appear that they’re trying to stop our King, but nothing will be done. Yes, I admit, that’s rather cynical. I hope they prove me wrong.

I also joke-a-hontashave little confidence that anything will be done about Obamacare. However, one thing that could be done now is repeal of the medical device tax. This tax has already done much damage to the industry and it’s just begun.

Heck, even Joke-A-Hontas, Elizabeth Warren, the Marxist of Massachusetts said the device tax “pushes companies of all sizes to cut back on research and development for life-saving products.” read more

Obamacare – The Perfect Crime

by: the Common Constitutionalist

History is replete with flimflam men, and women. America has had its fair share. The most famous must be Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi, better known as Charles Ponzi.

More recently names like Bernie Madoff and Robert Allen Stanford have become the modern day face of the scam. Madoff ripped off investors to the tune of $65 billion in what many have described as the largest financial fraud in U.S. history. For this he was sentenced to 150 years in the slammer.

Stanford ripped off over 28,000 investors for about $7 billion and was sentenced to 110 years behind bars.

Of Madoff and Stanford, Robert Lenzner at Forbes.com wrote that “Clearly, the SEC should have had the smarts and the will to put Madoff and Stanford out of business before they were able to do so much harm.” read more

Democrats Lie – They’re Too Arrogant Not To

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It seems that Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner has found a few choice quotes from Democrats, namely Bella Pelosi (I vant to suck your wallet) as the title of her article on Saturday would suggest: “Dems: Gruber wrote computer code, not Obamacare.”

Is that right. Well, he sure does have a lot to say and sure seems to have plenty of detailed strategic information for some guy tucked away somewhere pecking at a keyboard. That, or a very active imagination. Maybe he’s the inadvertent Edward Snowden of Obamacare, or maybe he’s a typical egotistical arrogant liberal who, like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al, think they can say anything and not be held to account, even when they’re caught on audio or video. “Are you going to believe me, or your lying eyes?”

Nonetheless, Susan writes that House Democrats contend that Jonathan Gruber was merely a computer code expert who was factually wrong in the assertions he made, regarding Obamacare.

By now most of us have heard that he was merely a computer “modeler, who wrote 15,000 lines of computer code.” And for this, writes Ferrechio, he “banked more than $1 million from the federal government and states by helping design and implement the Affordable Care Act.” Where do I sign up for that gig?

Susan reports that although Pelosi insists that he played no role in writing Obamacare, Gruber evidently visited the White House eight times. Now why in the world would anyone in the White House invite a mere computer programmer to meet with them just once, let alone eight times? Answer: they wouldn’t. read more
