Obamessiah Supporters to be Exempt from New Hellcare Tax

Not that it should come as a surprise to anybody.

The best chance for compromise legislation on health care may be a plan under construction in the Senate Finance Committee that would pay for a public plan in part by taxing some worker health benefits.

But the union workers who helped Democrats win Congress and the White House and whose support will be key in getting a health bill signed into law would not pay the tax.

Of course they wouldn’t. The very group that caused GM and Chrysler, both “too big to fail”, to fail, the very group that was rewarded by driving some of our best revenue generators into the ground with ownership of the businesses they destroyed, the most likely supporters of the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party, obviously shouldn’t be required to help foot the bill for their Messiah’s Hellcare Boondoggle.

You and I, on the other hand…

Thanks, fiddy-tooers, thanks a whole lot, you worthless wasters of oxygen.

    Isn’t it amazing how all of this Marxist bullsqueeze comes full-circle? The Unionization-by-Intimidation scam failed to pass muster, so they just backdoor it into action by exempting union goons from having to pay into Dr. Bongo’s Magical Medical Tour™.

    I actually had a dream last night about union thugs targetting my workplace for a shakedown signup session. (Yes, it ended with them incredibly pissed off and me running/giggling like hell.)

    If you think 1984 was prophetic, check out Atlas Shrugged. I re-read it for the first time last autumn; I specifically recall getting to the infamous train/tunnel accident the very night before the home mortage meltdown hit. (The parallels between the two incidents are downright bone-chilling.)

    Funny thing is, union members in Indiana are not very big fans of Ofuckface, any more… Since we’re about to turn into USSR v2.0_Caliphate edition, it will benefit the commies to know that unions can become their worst enemies right quick. In the USSR, unions that got too lively were banned. The reasoning behind it was: since this is the workers’ paradise, there is no more need for unions, since they are primarily means of negotiation, and there is no negotiation allowed in the communist utopia, never mind that you get shot if you are 30 seconds late for work, and you may not get your last week’s pay just because. Since I drink lots of beer in some heavily-attended pubs, I drink with a lot of people who are union members… It is most gratifying to see their facial expression when talking about Ofuckface: it is an expression of a man who expected to bite into a piece of chocolate but realized, all too late, that it was a turd…

    Last time my father in law and I discussed politics he said he hoped Obama was able to “get done everything he wants to get done.”

    I told him I hoped he didn’t because I didn’t fight Communism for the first part of my Navy career just to see my country deliver itself willingly into the same slavery.

    Unfortunately I’m sure he still doesn’t regret his vote. Yet.

    Govt run healtcare will never work, just ask any member of the armed firces how our govt run healthcare is working for us. The answer is it doesn’t work well at all. We have to deal with a rationed healthcare system and it’s crap. I know many of my fellow soldiers who just say fuck it and get thier own supplemental insurance. Mark my words if there is govt run healthcare it will be TRICARE on a national level and for those who have no experience with dfealing with TRICARE, just take my word for it you don’t want it.

    Slib,

    Depends on which version of Tricare. Tricare Prime sucked big time…needed referrals to docs I’d been seeing for years off base. Once we switched to Tricare Standard, life got good. We could see who we wanted, when we wanted. I still have Tricare (for another year and a half)…just long enough for O’Bummer to get his nationalized health care implemented.

    Who knows…I may just go on national healthcare for the piddly junk and save my money for the big stuff.

    Strongly disagree. He didn’t foresee shit, and he wasn’t trying to in the first place; it mirrors the situation of Communism in the Soviet Union. Rumor has it he was going to name his book 1948.

    He was a man who missed the point entirely. He was a self-described socialist that had this delusional idea (shared by many people today that ought to know better than he, considering they’ve had decades and decades more human thought put into it) that socialism and tyranny were mutually exclusive ideas. He was quite disillusioned by his experience with the Spanish Civil War, and remained PO’ed enough at Stalin’s atrocities to write more than one famous story that allegorize them in no uncertain terms.

    I Gots TRICARE WEST(which is the New Tricare prime) and I’ve had nothing but problems. 3-6 weeks of waiting for a referal to get an ultrasound on my nethers (which was nothin serious thank the lord). Had my Galbladder removed in feb, the statment from the hospital said everything was paid for. Yet today I got a statement from some colections agency saying I ow a Balance of 311 bucks to the hospital. I will be taking care of this on monday..I will not be paying for it.

    In any case one needs not look toward military coverage to find the flaws in government run programs, just look at how many doc’s take medicare or medicade(Its Split, 50% dont take them), or how F’up SS is, the post office, even our beloved military continues to waste money. How many units throw out hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of uniforms, MRE’s, food, fuel, ammo, and a number of other things inorder to write off those expenses to gain more funds for the next fiscle year (If they didn’t have to defend their need to defend the country they wouldnt need to waste to get funds, they would have what they need when they ask). Sending a troop from Texas all the way to Kalifornia to link up with a deploying unit when that unit will be flying back to Texas and stopping at the same Airport the Troop left from in the first place, how does that make economic sense? And thats what the Gov does everyday. Plain and simple solution….stop it by any means.

So fuck what the goverment has to offer. I as a carpenter cannot get on at my local, with 300+ hours as one. So fuck the unions too. And I have an uncle who tried to get me in.

    Baco, I’ve been looking for them pics since the whole red thong thing. All I’ve gotten is a “whatever”.

    Skye, we have no Prime providers out here, so we have standard. It doesn’t pay as much, but we don’t have to jump through hoops to get to the docs and hospitals that are in the network, plus it doesn’t cost us anything. Between the plan I pay for at work and Tricare Standard it pays for most of my wife’s cancer treatments.

    When I was active duty we all hated doctor visits because you would wait forever for just a cold pack (because you had to go through the whole examination for any meds whatsoever, and the only place you could get meds on the ship was at sickbay). The only way you would get right in, ship or shore, was to be actively bleeding like a stuck pig when you got there. Dependents were always second-class citizens, and retirees and their dependents are third or fourth-class citizens in the military system. The military system is good for what it was designed for, to patch up battlefield wounds. Unfortunately it is used for far more than that these days, and it has lost it’s focus somewhat (lots of civilians work in military medicine, for example, when they would never be deployed to the battlefield).

    With that being said, the corpsmen that I have dealt with are all experts in their fields, and they always gave us first-rate care. The problem isn’t in the medical staff, the problem is in the administration, which is usually the case.

    George Orwell either started or finished his book in 1948 and just reversed the last two numbers of the date, so “1984”. He was indeed writing about the then-current Soviet situation, the same as Ayn Rand was using her experiences with them, and with the then-present state of creeping socialism, when she wrote “Atlas Shrugged” but it’s amazing (and horrifying) how prophetic those two works have ended up being.

    Very off topic, but it seems that Car and Driver is becoming disillusioned with The Anointed One. Apparently, they think that Cash For Clunkers a Dumb Idea and that the New CAFE Standards are a Dumb Idea

    Also, a suggestion for the Emperor’s consideration. At WUWT they’ve added a “Tips and Notes” section where items of interest that don’t fit elsewhere can be posted. This would both relieve some of the strain on Your Imperial Majesty’s inbox and cut down on some of the wildly off topic posts – well, like this one. Perhaps you could coerce DJ into implementing something similar?

    I had issues with Tricare myself. I think it’s Prime that I get to deal with, I don’t know, I have private insurance and use it whenever possible. I had a seizure three years at drill, and had to go to the emergency room, and see a neurologist after that. Tricare was supposed to deal with it, but I kept on getting stuff from collection agencies. I made a big enough stink about it, and it got taken care of.

    Anyway, what could be the issue is that the doctors and hospitals aren’t getting their money from Medicare and Medicaid, so they go after the little people (i.e., the ones whose health insurance covers it) to get their money. My parents are going through a similar situation. My dad had to have skin cancer surgery earlier this year. Their insurance was going to cover a large portion of it, and they paid their part of it. Now, they’re getting stuff from the hospital about it, wanting them to pay a certain amount or risk being sent to a collections agency. It’s baloney, I know, but that’s what they’re doing, apparently.
