DEM USES PHONY “THREATS” MEME TO AVOID CONSTITUENTS

A new meme has emerged from Capitol Hill and enthusiastically picked up by the ‚Äúnews‚Ä? media‚ÄĒ‚Äďviolent and dangerous Tea Party types are making threats to Democrats who voted for Obamacare. That¬†the evidence for¬†ACTUAL threats and ACTUAL violence involves acts perpetrated by “progressives” against Republicans has little meaning for these people. What they’re looking for is [...]

THE AMA-OBAMACARE BAIT & SWITCH

Well, the Democrats¬†finally paid off the¬†quislings at the AMA, and the American people¬†will (as usual) be left¬†to pay¬†the tab. As I wrote in this AmSpec piece last year, the AMA’s support of Obamacare was all about the Benjamins. The goal was a reprieve from big cuts in Medicare payments to doctors, and that’s what they [...]

SEBELIUS TO INSURERS: FORGET THE LAW, I MAKE THE RULES NOW

If you’re still confused about¬†who now runs the U.S. health care system, this should clarify things. Health insurers have been reading the recently-passed Obamacare legislation in an attempt to divine what it actually requires them to do. And it turns out that the¬†Obamacare bill¬†doesn’t actually require them to sell insurance to children with pre-exiting conditions.¬†¬†But [...]

VOTERS READY TO PARTY LIKE IT’S 1994

The Democrat party line on Obamacare¬†is that all great social programs are controversial but quickly gain acceptance after passage. Their¬†obvious hope¬†is that Obamacare will soon be as popular as Social Security, and that the voters will forgive their recent skulduggery. Well, Obamacare had better get popular in a hurry or the Democrats are toast.¬†Gallup’s¬†latest poll [...]

AETNA CEO: HEALTH PREMIUMS ARE GOING UP

A couple of days ago I highlighted the President’s oft-repeated promise that Obamacare would reduce annual health insurance premiums by $2,500 for the average family.¬† For anyone¬†out there who actually believed that BS,¬†I recommend this interview with Aetna’s CEO, Ron Williams.¬†When asked if insurance premiums will go up, he provided this unequivocal response: The answer [...]

STUPAK TAG-TEAMS WITH WAXMAN TO SILENCE EXECS ON OBAMACARE COSTS

If you thought Bart Stupak’s venality was limited to selling his vote, think again. He is also tag-teaming with Henry Waxman to intimidate corporate CEOs into silence about the costs of Obamacare. AT&T, Caterpillar, Deere & Co.¬†and other firms have announced plans to write down their earnings estimates to reflect the impact Obamacare will have [...]

OK, OBAMACARE PASSED. CAN I HAVE MY $2,500 NOW?

One of the promises the President has repeatedly made about Obamacare is that it will save the average American family about $2,500 per year on insurance premiums. Here’s a video montage (via Naked Emperor News) showing Obama making this pledge 20 different times: So, now that the bill has passed, our premiums should start to [...]

STUPAK ACTUALLY THINKS OUTRAGE OVER HIS OBAMACARE VOTE WILL “CALM DOWN”

Bart Stupak actually thinks the outrage resulting from his Obamacare vote will die down after a few weeks. In this video, he not only makes the absurd claim that Obamacare preserves previous law on abortion funding, he also says the following about the mood of the voters: I think they’ll see ‚Ķ we provide quality, [...]

VIDEO: JEREMIAH WRIGHT SAYS OPPOSITION TO OBAMACARE BASED ON HATRED FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR

Look for this meme to appear a lot during the run-up to the November elections. Obama and the Dems will attempt to drive minorities to the polls by stoking as much fear in their hearts as possible. Rev. Wright will not be the last to describe opposition to Obamacare as follows: It’s all a part of [...]

STUPAK DEFENDS HIS PERFIDY IN THE WAPO

When Norwegian politician Vidkun Quisling was convicted of abetting the Nazi occupation of of his own country, his name became a synonym for “traitor.” Since March 21, the name “Stupak” has achieved similar infamy in the pro-life movement. Within hours of his vote in favor of Obamacare, the Susan B. Anthony List stripped him of [...]
