ObamaCare Must Die!

liar liar pants on fireThis week PolitiFact announced its award for 2013 Lie of the Year. The winner was Obama’s “If you like your plan/Dr you can keep it … Period!” According to past videos, he repeated that lie over 30 times. Via emails, it’s been proven that he DID know it was a lie even though publicly he denied it. On a daily basis, we learn of more major flaws of this disastrous Democrat program that is destroying lives and placing some people in real danger.

Eventually by the fall of 2014, it’s projected that the majority of Americans will have their health care plans changed or dropped as small businesses (under 50 employees) and large businesses (over 50 employees) portions of the law kick in.

As the ObamaCare web site receives a few more “fixes”, people are learning that their Dr’s may not be included in the ObamaCare network. Some Dr’s are deciding to not participate in the program due to minimal reimbursements.

If you’re not old enough to received Medicare, you may not understand why a Dr may choose to not take an ObamaCare patient and sometimes don’t service Medicare patients. (Medicaid is even worse.)

Three years ago I had my gall bladder removed via minor laparoscopy . It consisted of numerous pre-surgery tests, two different surgeries, and 2½ days in the hospital. It was the first time I used Medicare and was shocked at how Medicare discounted bills.

  • The surgeon’s bill for the 2 surgeries was $3,140. Medicare said he should only receive $2,237.  I paid 20% of the $2,237. The surgeon had to write-off the difference ($903).
  • The hospital bill was $24,905. Medicare determined it should be $12,766. I paid 9% of the latter amount and the hospital was stiffed for $12,139.
  • All the rest of the costs were similarly discounted.
  • Bottom line, bills were turned in totaling $33,953. Medicare approved only $18,154 for payment. My cost to pay was $1,774. The unpaid amount was written off by the various companies.

Medicare primarily covers seniors. Imagine what adding a large portion of the entire population under ObamaCare will do to profits for Dr’s and hospitals. They must make changes to the type of patients they see or decide to get out of the business. Given the years of education a Doctor must invest, plus, the horrendous cost of the malpractice insurance, what would you do?

A Doctor I’m currently seeing has a posted policy that patients are responsible for the whole bill regardless of what is paid by the insurer. If the doctors, hospital and labs had such a policy 3 years ago, I would have had to pay the $1,774 PLUS the unpaid $15,739 PLUS the $1248 annual premium. I’ll bet more Doctors, hospitals, and labs will implement similar policies for ObamaCare.

For a program that is supposed to save people money, ObamaCare has the real possibility of causing bankruptcy for many Americans.

Ohio Changes Mind On Obama

Ohio has been taking some heat on Twitter the past couple days due to the latest Quinnipiac University poll. The poll asked if respondents approved or disapproved Obama’s performance. The results showed him receiving the lowest approval he has ever had. That’s important to note coming from a traditional “swing” state.

  • 61% disapprove of the job Obama’s doing. 34% approve.evil eyed Obama
  • 57% don’t believe or trust Obama. 39% do.
  • 59% oppose of ObamaScare. 35% agree.

Obama won Ohio by only 103,431 votes or 50.1% of those who voted. Mitt had 48.2% of the votes. As with other states, Ohio had reports of voter fraud and counties where over 100% of registered voters “voted” for Obama.

POLITICO has a map of Ohio’s election results by county. It shows that of Ohio’s 88 counties, only 16 swung ‘blue’. The blue counties are the inner-city portions of the larger cities: Cleveland (the ObamaPhone gal), Columbus, Cincinnati plus union strongholds of Toledo, Dayton, Akron, Youngstown. The one exception is Athens County where Ohio University is located – a college known for its media degrees and strong liberal bias.

Back to the Twitter comments. As you can imagine, to go from 50% “FOR” to 61% “AGAINST” is a substantial swing in attitudes. The tweets mostly have been of the nature of “why didn’t Ohio get smart a year ago”. I wrote this article to show that 82% of Ohio counties ARE smart! After all we did vote in a GOP Governor, John Kasich … who has lowered taxes and unemployment; worked to grow industries and jobs; and eliminated a budget deficit!

Hopefully, Ohio will vote smarter in 2014.

No-o-o-o … I’m not ready for 2016!

We’re about to start hearing the media go into full propaganda mode for the 2014 mid-term elections. But that’s not stopping them and the political parties to also be touting “chosen ones” for 2016.

Obama has been the least qualified POTUS in my lifetime. If America survives his tenure, we need to be a whole lot more careful in selecting someone in 2016. One of the complaints against Obama is that he had no prior managerial or executive experience. No experience managing people or implementing governing strategies. His unwillingness to develop good working relationships with people has been a serious detriment to him being able to effectively govern.

Looking at the background of the previous 9 Presidents, back to JFK …

  • Eight served in the Military giving them team training when working/managing people and discipline. 7 of the 8 were in the Navy (JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Bush 41, Bush 43). Reagan was in the Army.
  • Four were state Governors, where they had to work in bipartisan mode and had to balance budgets. (Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush 43)
  • G W Bush is the only POTUS to have an MBA.
  • Ford is the only one to have never been elected to his position as VP or POTUS. He became VP after Spiro Agnew resigned and President after Nixon resigned. He did play football for U of Michigan … so there’s that. :-P
  • Five were Republicans, 4 were Democrats.

I’m inclined to favor having a Governor for President. A Gov has to implement programs to create jobs and grow employment by attracting business. They need to work in a bi-partisanship manner to get their programs accepted. States are required to have balanced budgets, since they can’t print money. They feel the full effect of a big Federal government and the costly regulations the Fed implements. The responsibilities of a Governor makes the person more well-rounded in all aspects of governing, similar to the duties of a POTUS.

Stock up on your popcorn … it’s likely to get pretty wild in the next year or two!

Did America give Obama a mandate?

I often hear Obama and the Dems say that “Obama got a mandate from Americans” via the 2012 election. They usually say this when they’re trying to push through an unpopular policy.

I decided to Google the actual count of potential voters versus those that actually voted for Obama. Because the data comes from a couple of sources, the numbers don’t exactly match but they’re close.

  • 215 million people were eligible to vote
  • 153 million were registered to vote
  • 132 million votes were actually cast
  • 62 million voted for Obama
  • 59 million voted for Romney

That means that Obama was chosen by only 29% of eligible voters or 41% of registered voters. Thus, the data doesn’t support the Dems claims of “Americans gave Obama a mandate”. Remember that the next time you hear the Dems’ rhetoric.

No mandate for Obama
