Oh, and Totally En Passant: Should Boehner Allow a House Vote on the ‘Clean’ CR?

No, he shouldn’t.

Not that we particularly believe the Lame Stream Media’s parroting the DNC talking point that they’ve been handed that “it would immediately pass”, but given how busy Obama and his pissy-panted, petulant, foot-stomping Spite House are pissing Americans off, we find it silly in the extreme to interrupt the enemy when he’s busy making a mistake.

Only 17% of the American people believe that our government has the consent of the governed, after all and, as Purple Ranger (from whom we stole that link) says:

That’s quite a bit lower than the percentage of the public that believes in UFO’s. I’m just saying…

So, by all means, let president Stompy Foot keep sticking that foot in his mouth.

Hold fast.

But let’s say that Weepy Boner did cave and let the ‘clean’ CR come to vote, whether it passed or not.

We’re not so sure that that would be a complete loss, even if it DID pass.

For one thing, it would give We the People a handy-dandy list of Congress Leeches who, while jealously guarding their own Platinum (with Oak Leaves and Clusters) Insurance Plans, voted to take even basic insurance away from hard working Americans.

Add to that 11 months of Americans really finding out what’s in that bill that Congress voted to pass, and they’re already none too pleased with the 300% increases in premiums advertised if they can even get through to 404Care, and we think that we’d see a House Cleaning that would make the bloodbath shellacking of 2010 look like a note of mild concern.

So even if we lose, we win.

Hold fast.

Now’s not the time to go wobbly.

    I have been having a grand time on facebook reposting shit I said almost a year ago in regards to ObammyCare and what was going to happen. Liberals are whining and gnashing their teeth when they see everything i predicted is coming to fruition. I warned them about the failure of the website exchanges (that was easy because 34 states told Der Fubar to fuck off and the ones who did try to set them up couldn’t do anything because of point number 2. THe rates were never officially released. They had teaser rates for the Palace Scribes to run with in order to get everyone excited over ObammyCare but they broke the law in not having the rates filed within 45 days of public introduction. If Cigna or Aetna pulled that shit, they would have been fined in the millions but since High Dark Lord Obammy did it, all is well.
    I will give you the last 2 nuggets of wisdom I gave to the libs on my FB page. One, the rates when officially released will be about $500 a month for a single. How do I know this? NJ is a guaranteed issue state with mandates very similar to ACA and those are the rates we charge. MA is in a similar boat and have similar rates. The second is because there are no elements of risk management to help anticipate utilization costs, their first renewal increase will be in excess of 30%. Bet it, it’s what happened in NJ and MA.
    Remember when the Senate was writing their version of ACA, Senator Menendez was calling the NJDOBI for clarification of how we introduced the “5 State Mandated Plans”, The “coverage mandates” and how we calculated new and renewal business rates. In fact, if you looked at the ACA, there will be parts that will be identical to NJ’s PL 92-162. We are in big trouble if this goes into full implementation.

    So… apparently kicking old people out of their homes, trying to shut down the ocean, trying to keep America’s vets out of national monuments and turning off Amber Alert is acceptable during the “shutdown.”

    But we must keep the National Mall open and allow pro-illegal immigrant shitslurpers to demonstrate there!

    A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.

    Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.

    A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.

    Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group’s rights granted by the First Amendment.

    The Bill of Rights GRANTS rights? And here I thought it protected already existing rights! Hmmm… Silly me.

    Also, apparently the First Amendment grants rights to illegal alien scum whose first act in a nation they claim to love is to violate its immigration laws. But it doesn’t protect the right of homeowners to remain in their homes and business owners to operate their business if they happen to be on federal lands… or the right of veterans to visit monuments commemorating their battles.

    FUCK YOU!!!!!

    Oh, and I’m now deemed “essential,” so I’m back at work, but I was just forced to sign a letter saying I won’t get paid until Congress gets its head out of its ass. Whenever that will be. So currently, I’m working for free, with no foreseeable paycheck in sight.


    OK, I’m done ranting now.

    As I told Nicki, der FUBAR is playing with lit dynamite which, unless your an explosives expert, never ends well. The NPS put up highway cones blocking people from pulling off to take pictures of Mount Rushmore. What did the Governor do? Had them promptly removed under the supervision of the SDHP since it was a STATE maintained road. People are waking up to two things; one, ObongoCare is a pack of shit designed only to take their money and two, he really is a petulant man-child.

    Remember your Ancient Roman history. The Praetorian Guard swore their lives to protect the Emperor but their first loyalty was to Rome herself and they had their limits on what the people could be subjected to and acted accordingly. Just say’in.

    And speaking of wobbly RINOs, methinks we have a list of people who DESPERATELY need to be Primaried next year.

    Starting with MY useless Congresscritter, Representative Frank Wolf (VA-10-RINO). The useless piece of amphibian shit was first elected in 1980, after carpetbagging in from Pennsylvania, and promised to serve 6 terms, max, and then retire. That would have been 1992. Do the math.

    The creep has closed his offices and is not responding to calls or email. Amongst his interests are local roads pork, the plight of the Tibetians, and stopping online gambling in any form. Neither of the latter two are of much interest to his constitutents, but he’s a reliably wobbly back-bencher who only performs well at constituent servicing.

    I did get through to the New York State Osamacare Exchange, at 0230 Tuesday morning (Oct. 1, before all the Normies woke up and tried it).

    My insurance company, HIP of Greater NY, sent out The Letter last weekend, saying they are “discontinuing the product” for all of us, effective Dec. 31st. So much for “keeping your insurance.”

    This is what I found out on the NYS Exchange:

    IDP = Individual Direct Pay (me, for instance: current insurance bill, $688/month).

    IF I don’t let my coverage lapse next year (that is, if I don’t take the route of just paying the penalty tax), I have these “choices”:

    * IDP HMO, POS [point of service] Bronze — UP 6.25%. “Covers” just SIXTY PERCENT of routine costs, and Only HALF of hospitalization!!! (they call this “50% cost-sharing”)

    * IDP HMO, POS, Silver — UP 8.34%. Covers just SEVENTY PERCENT of routine care, and only HALF of hospitalization.

    * Non-Standard [hunh???] IDP HMO Gold — UP 12.6%. Covers EIGHTY percent of routine care, with sky-high deductibles

    * Standardized [hunh???] IDP HMO Gold — UP 12.6%

    OH, but there’s MORE new SPECIAL HOTNESS!

    Dig this: If you don’t pay for Ofucker’s “insurance scheme,” and you try to buy back in after a year or two, your premiums will DOUBLE. [look for “non-grandfathered plans.”] Mine would cost me $1400.00 for the BRONZE (60%/50% coverage) plan.

    AND, if you can only afford the two cheapest alternatives, Silver or Gold, they are NOT REQUIRED TO COVER PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS.

    But wait — there’s more!!!!!!!

    There is a wide range of income that will be TOO POOR TO RECEIVE SUBSIDIES. That’s right — too POOR.

    No one, for some reason, can wrap their mind around THAT one. This is for taxable incomes in the $15,000 — $25,000 range (after all your deductions), and it might go higher: I didn’t check. So there’s a CRAP-TON of working class/lower middle class folks who will be making TOO MUCH for Medicaid, and TOO LITTLE to receive subsidies!!!!!!!!!

    Tho the website helpfully said, in red type, “You might be eligible for Medicaid ” (hey, just shoot me now — the Medicaid system is the one where you line up with all the homeless folks at fucking Bellevue — NO private doctor will see you.)

    But just for giggles, I then logged on to the NYS website and found out that the income ceiling for receiving Turd World Medicaid is $8,994 annual income!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (nope, NO missing zeros)

    SO. Not even Rush and company seem to have figured this shit out yet. Because I don’t yet hear anyone talking about the fact that you can be WORKING YET TOO POOR TO RECEIVE ANY SUBSIDIES.

    Their you go, folks. SUCK it, libs — I hope you bastards get the shaft so hard your eyes pop out.

    Yep, the swindle was in the ACA compliance mandates. If your plan didn’t meet ACA benefit limits, it was gone. This sucked because it took away the most popular health plan in the country, the catastrophic care plan.
    Did you read even further where if you don’t sign up but you have put your information in through the quoting system, they can take the ACA penalties directly from any checking account you may own either individually or jointly? Oh yes, the high hard one is coming and it’s coming fast.

    Yep. That’d be me. I gross roughly 13k a year (adjusted, it’s around 8). In order to qualify for Medicaid, I’d have to have assets of less than 2,000. Granted, it’s a different state, but still. Yet, a family of four with an income of 94,000 DOES qualify for a subsidy. Liberal math at its finest.

    Off Topic but good

    On Monday, TruthRevolt.org, the organization dedicated to targeting the funding bases of propagandizing leftist media outlets, posted a petition asking Americans to tell advertisers on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton to drop their support for the race-baiting demagogue. Their stated goal was humble: 1,000 signatures by January 1, 2014. Instead, by 11:16 a.m. PDT, the goal had been met. Instead of the signatures taking three months, they barely took 15 hours.

    “The next step,” TruthRevolt.org Editor-in-Chief and Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro said, “is to mobilize those who have signed our petition – and we urge Americans to continue signing! — to make their voices heard directly. This is where the fight truly begins.”
