New GOP strategy on ObamaCare: Let it burn
Posted on Thursday, November 21, 2013 10:38:13 AM by Hotlanta Mike
After the government shutdown over ObamaCare fizzled in mid-October, people wondered whether the GOP would try the same strategy again in early 2014 to force an end to the ACA. The Hill reports that the House and Senate Republican caucuses are now united in dumping that strategy.

Chaos is the only word that can be used for the catastrophic nightmare called Obamacare. Americans who have lost their coverage are now in an even worse situation. Soetoro/Obama is trying to push blame onto insurance companies. The insurance companies do not have to offer people back their old plan and why would they? The whole purpose from insurance companies stand point was to fleece a hundred million Americans in higher premiums and co-pays.
JB Williams — ObamaCare Fraud and Extortion on Track….. “ObamaCare was designed to carry out the Cloward-Piven Strategy of overloading the social benefits system until the entire system collapses, at which point, Democratic Socialists running Washington DC will capitalize on the health care crisis they created by moving to their end game, a single-payer system run by the Federal Government, wiping out an entire industry responsible for 1/7th of our nation’s economy.”
…..Clearly, ObamaCare was not designed to actually work. Obama’s promises have been broken, all of them. As a result, Obama’s individual approval rating has plummeted to an all-time low in the 30s and the congressional approval rating is bottoming out in the single digits.
No, ObamaCare was designed to carry out the Cloward-Piven Strategy of overloading the social benefits system until the entire system collapses, at which point, Democratic Socialists running Washington DC will capitalize on the health care crisis they created by moving to their end game, a single-payer system run by the Federal Government, wiping out an entire industry responsible for 1/7th of our nation’s economy.
Articles: How Republicans Can Lose on ObamaCare….. “No one but the utter simpletons among us believes ObamaCare was ever about healthcare or improving upon its delivery. One does not cure an illness by shooting the patient in the head. “
By Jeffrey T. Brown
It is a tactic as old as argument itself. The person seeking to accomplish something he knows to be dishonest and unjust sets the parameters of the argument, and invites his opponent to debate the predetermined memes.
If the debater does not first disown the false premise, and reset the terms, he has effectively lost from the outset. In the case of ObamaCare, the premise is that our healthcare system was irretrievably \”broken.\” Congress had to step in and \”fix\” healthcare.

Despite what you are being told, the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), commonly known as ObamaCare, is already proving to be a resounding success. The problem, however, is that the majority of Americans don’t fully understand the objectives of this plan, or the roles of its architects and its defenders. Even the vast majority of conservative pundits in all venues don’t seem to ‘get it’ and consequently, are leading their readers and listeners astray by focusing on the wrong issues.
First, it is vital to understand that the ACA is not now, nor never was, about providing affordable health care. It is merely disguised as such.
Articles: ‘Pretty Good at Killing’….. “With ObamaCare, he is killing the most effective healthcare system in the world. Indeed, he is so good at killing a system that could have been modified with relative ease to achieve his alleged objectives that soon his ideology will end up also killing many more people than drones ever could. Healthcare is about to become so expensive that people will defer going for medical visits they simply cannot afford. “
It has been disclosed in a recently published book about the 2012 campaign, Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, that the president told aides that he is \”really good at killing people\” with drones. I think the president is being far too modest. Drones aren\’t the half of it. He\’s really good at killing lots of things.
Our nation is being stolen before our very eyes. The American people are being robbed of their livelihoods, their security and their freedom. President Obama makes grand sweeping gestures and delivers soaring rhetoric about helping the poor and achieving fairness. But he merely draws our attention away from the hand that is reaching deep into our pockets. Such is the nature of his extremist legislative agenda. Call it Grand Theft Obama, but it is no video game; this is for real.
And it is not merely monetary theft, as is apparent from Obamacare. America is being fundamentally transformed, as Obama promised. This is one promise that he clearly intends to keep, no matter how many people lose their health insurance policies, their jobs, or their productive futures.

OBAMACARE: THE UNIMAGINABLE SUFFERING THATAQ WAITS US
By John Perazzo On November 5, 2013 In Daily Mailer,FrontPage
There is a vital reason for all Americans to take a close look at how, specifically, the various government-run, single-payer healthcare systems around the world have already affected the lives of the people living under them.
This is vital because Barack Obama and the Democrats actually have their sights set on creating precisely such a system here in the United States. For them, Obamacare is, and always has been, nothing more than a stepping stone toward their ultimate goal of a single-payer leviathan administered entirely by the federal government. Indeed, they’ve been quite clear about their intentions:
Obamacare Is Obama Unmasked

Everyone is focusing on Obamacare because it is such an obvious disaster, but in fact, it is but a microcosm of Barack Obama\’s entire presidency. Obamacare is Obama unmasked.
Aren\’t some of you tired of making lame excuses for him that only serve to make things worse? He has made a mess of nearly everything his policies have touched, and he\’s mostly avoided the blame; but he owns Obamacare, and he has nowhere to hide.
There’s something ‘off’ about President Barack Hussein Obama allegedly telling aides while discussing drone strikes, I’m ‘really good at killing people’.Obama doesn’t own up to anything, even including who he is.
Obama has a track record for never taking ownership of anything other than that which other people have accomplished over a lifetime of sweat.In this latest revelation, one can almost hear strains of the Peter Gunn theme song, or with just a little imagination find Obama’s smirking omnipresent face on display down at the post office among ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ posters of yore.
Portraying himself as the gun slinger in drone strikes is a bit of a stretch, as if there is anything Obama isn’t, it’s decisive.

Then-Senator Lyndon Baines Johnson devised what has proven to be a brilliant strategy in which to silence and neuter America\’s churches. His bill, which created the 501c3 tax-exempt corporation status for churches back in 1954, has, over the decades, effectively muted America\’s pulpits. The vast majority of churches today are thoroughly and completely intimidated by the threat of losing their tax-exempt status under the 501c3 section of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). As a result, the vast majority of pastors are unwilling to address virtually any issue from the pulpit that could be deemed as political.
If the Obamacare rollout had been a success, the Dems would be gloating and saying, “See? I told ya so.” They’d be talking about how they had immense opposition from the racists in the tea party, but after a long fight, they were victorious. And now, thanks to their tenacity, everyone has access to free healthcare insurance, and everyone’s fitter, happier and more productive as a result.
That may have been their pipe dream, but that certainly didn’t come true. The rollout has been such a disaster, such a waste of money, that Congress is subpoenaing those who were involved with the administering of the rollout. We want to know what went wrong. Why was this rollout such a disaster? And what’s the deal with the website?

Rasmussen reported last Friday that 52% of likely voters approve of Obama’s job performance. This number is both astonishing and depressing. The avalanche of Obama’s failures both domestic and foreign should have buried this presidency months ago. Yet despite the slow-motion implosion of Obamacare now catching the attention of even the court-journalists of the mainstream media, millions of American voters still think one of the worst presidents in modern history is doing a good job.
By Jeffrey T. Brown
Every day, it seems, more people who have been screaming their hatred for those who predicted all we see coming true are admitting what we have known all along. The president is incapable of telling a truth, and what conservatives have been predicting for three years about ObamaCare has been entirely correct.

A stunning Ministry of Finance (MoF) report released today on the global impact of the recently implemented Affordable Care Act (ACA) [otherwise known as Obamacare] in the United States is warning that this new law is now in a “death spiral” which could, by February 2014, collapse the entire world’s economic system as the US Federal Reserve would not be able to bail out its European Union (EU) counterpart central banks as it had done with the over $80 billion in secret loans given to them after the 2007-2008 financial crisis due to this laws “massive failure.”

The constipated debut of Obamacare has reduced the president of the United States to the status of TV pitchman. \”Act now\” to get this great product, he exhorted listeners on Monday, offering testimonials from one of the rare successful purchasers, promising limitless benefits and low prices, and even an 800 number. His operators are standing by, he urged, and they speak 150 languages! (You could sign up in Min Bei and Kazakh, if you could sign up at all.) If Obama had thrown in a free tote bag for the first 100 callers, it wouldn\’t have seemed out of place.
The Frog Jumps Out Of The Pot… “You have probably heard about the Frog in the Pot Syndrome, in which a frog placed into a pot of water supposedly will allow itself to be boiled so long as you turn up the heat slowly. Each incremental increase in temperature is too small to be noticed until it\’s too late, and the frog is cooked to death. “
Each incremental increase in temperature is too small to be noticed until it\’s too late, and the frog is cooked to death. My sense of the Tea Party reaction on the right is that the recession, the bailouts, and above all ObamaCare simply turned up the heat too quickly. The frog suddenly realized it was being boiled and jumped out of the pot.
Obamacare. If not gutted and allowed to die off, that monster will be one of the single largest contributors to the final death of the economy already on life support.
Comrade Nancy Pelosi\’s famous let\’s get it passed and then everyone will find out what\’s in the bill is spewing anger across the country. Americans are now experiencing sticker shock! They didn\’t read the bill signed by an impostor president into \”law\” and now, oh how it hurts:

The shortcomings of ObamaCare continue to seep into the light, putting the lie to virtually every claim made by Barack Hussein about his namesake “healthcare” scheme. But one part of the law remains as much a mystery now as when it was written.

Americans have been purposefully placed between the proverbial rock and a hard place, damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
The people they elected to protect and preserve the American Constitutional Republic have set their sights on destroying it instead, and few Americans have the knowledge, good sense and backbone to stop them.ObamaCare represents a large portion of more than $100 trillion in “unfunded” federal liabilities created during the first Obama term, before Republicans regained control of the House.
Obamacare\’s Website Is Crashing Because It Doesn\’t Want You To Know How Costly Its Plans Are

A growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out a principal reason why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.

Well, Obamacare is now in effect. The decision by Congress to pass Obamacare into law back in 2010 ranks among the most draconian, most egregious, most horrific actions ever taken by the central government in Washington, D.C.
This bill rocks the principles of liberty and constitutional government to the core. It changes fundamental foundations; it repudiates historic values. The same flag may fly on our flagpoles, the same monuments may grace our landscape, and the same National Anthem may be sung during our public ceremonies, but it is not the same America.
For all intents and purposes, our nation now more resembles the socialist countries of the old communist East Bloc than it does the constitutional republic of the old land of the free.

This should be obvious by now – to anyone who has watched the pathetic spectacle of disarmed (and thus, helpless) men and women being cattle-chuted out of a building with their hands over their heads in the “I surrender” pose following a mass shooting – almost invariably perpetrated in a “gun free” zone.

‘It’s the law of the land.”
This is rapidly becoming the preferred shorthand argument for why criticism of Obamacare is just so, so wrong. It also serves as the lead sentence of a larger claim that all attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act are really symptoms of a kind of extremist right-wing lunacy.

While many people will attack GOP leaders in the Senate for not understanding what Sen. Ted Cruz is doing, don’t count me as one of them. You see GOP leadership has been handicapped for quite some time now.
Mark Twain, who witnessed the impeachment debacle of Andrew Johnson in the House of Representatives in 1868, pegged it: “[I] was reporter in a legislature two sessions and the same in Congress one session,” Twain wrote, “and thus learned to know personally three sample bodies of the smallest minds and the selfishest souls and the cowardliest hearts that God makes.”
You must understand that it’s very difficult for politicians to recognize another politician, as in the case of Sen. Cruz, who is actually doing the things he campaigned on, like getting rid of Obamacare.
In “Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office,” New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott make the case Obamacare not only is unconstitutional, it illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights and marks an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of Internal Revenue Service power.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz began a filibuster Tuesday with the intent of defunding the Affordable Care Act, known also as Obamacare.
The White House said Wednesday that the GOP was engaged in “essentially an all-out civil war” and accused Speaker John Boehner R-Ohio of bending to “the will” of a small group of House conservatives after deciding to press forward with a government funding bill that would strip funding for ObamaCare.
