It is NOT yet apparent to most Americans how persuasive Ted Cruz's arguments are.

When he explains something he makes it understandable to ALL levels of intellect.

He will eventually become the ONE and ONLY PRIMARY TARGET of ALL LIBERALS.

The US House of Representatives is the “Peoples’ House” and the people have said they don’t want it. I’d say the House did the work of the people.

Here is the crux of the problem - you can’t remove something without a substitute to replace it.

What has happened, is that something, a good, workable health services delivery system, has been replaced with something much less workable, Obamacare. The bugs are only now becoming apparent, a vast project started with what turned out to be half-vast ideas and planning. In their haste to pass the abomination known formally as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010”, no consideration was made as to how to get from where the nation was in 2009 to where it was supposed to be in 2012.

This atrocity pretty much redefines “health insurance” as a Ponzi scheme, delivering some useful benefits to the first recipients of its provisions, but with a broadened base of demands, cannot provide anything like adequate health services to most of the rest of the participants.

Perhaps some may be familiar with the principle in physics called entropy. In any closed system, the rate of losses of useful energy as compared to the energy available will eventually degrade all forms of energy into heat, which in sufficiently high concentration, makes any further useful work impossible. This is covered by something called “The Three Laws of Thermodynamics”.

In a succinct and simple explanation, the British scientist and author C.P. Snow had an excellent way of remembering the three laws:

1.You cannot win (that is, you cannot get something for nothing, because matter and energy are conserved).

2.You cannot break even (you cannot return to the same energy state, because there is always an increase in disorder; entropy always increases).

3.You cannot get out of the game (because absolute zero is unattainable).

The pols know the O/Care ship is listing---ready to heave--- maybe do a Costa Concordia into the Potomac.

THE BAD NEWS KEEPS COMING Reuters reports the US government on Wednesday scaled back its projections for Obamacare's impact in 2014, saying the law would generate slower healthcare spending growth and provide coverage to only half as many of America's uninsured as anticipated last year.

The biggest factor in the change stems from the U.S. Supreme Court verdict last year allowing each state to decide whether to expand the public Medicaid program for the poor under Obama's healthcare reform law. Republican leaders in nearly half of the nation's 50 states have rejected the expansion.

HHS now expects 11 million uninsured Americans to obtain coverage next year, down from about 22 million projected a year ago, according to the report, which appeared in the journal Health Affairs. (Excerpt) Read more at reuters.com ...

=====================================================

There's also lawsuits and state problems.

HERE'S HOW THEY'RE STOPPING OBAMACARE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported. (Excerpt) Read more at sanluisobispo.com ...

YOUR TURN--Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.

In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, plan to profit, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.

=======================================================

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley

EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.

With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to “navigators.” “Navigators” are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.

Any “navigator” will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.

Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.

And there is not much scrutiny over who these “navigators” will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees’ training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.

===========================================

OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."

"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."

“The court rejected the federal government’s argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case,” “We’re optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.”

REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish “large employers,” including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.

“Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule,” General Pruitt said. “The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now they’re using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.”

=================================================

PROTECT YOURSELF---Obamacare is easy pickins for identity thieves. Steps to take to minimize risk of identity theft:

1. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490

2. Order a tax account transcript from the IRS that verifies basic personal data along with details of your tax return filed, which may come in handy if you are checking to see whether someone else filed a fraudulent return on your behalf

The Federal Trade Commission (link at website) also lists several steps you must take if you have been a victim of identity theft.

SOURCE http://www.cnbc.com/id/100918004

AS FREEPER PAJAMAMAN COGENTLY POSTED: Ads need to be run---the public needs to be told of the magnitude of the invasion of their privacy, that will occur under OBamacare. They need to be made to understand this.

Obamacare is not about healthcare or even insurance coverage, it is about centrally controlling from DC every aspect of your life. Your doctor will be their informant on how you live, work and eat while their IRS agents will monitor every financial aspect of your life in the guise of keeping you healthy. There will not be one part of your life they will not only know but control through the Unaffordable Healthcare Act. This is a dream come true for the central planners who run the Communist....er, I mean....…Democrat Party and the worst nightmare for your average American.

MY TWO CENTS……. The Affordable Care Act transforms the entire national health care system and affects all residents of the U.S., not just the 18 million who were without healthcare insurance . Obamacare is a humongous mishmash of rules and regulations and taxations that intrude and affect every aspect of our lives. The IRS may need as many as 16,000 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans. In the HR3590 summary, the words “Requires the Secretary” (of DHS) appear 98 times and “Directs the Secretary” appears 64 times. “Authorizes the Secretary” appears 30 times. The law gives a tremendous amount of power to one individual, Kathleen Sebelius, who “serves only at the will of the President” and was NOT elected by We, the People. It is Congress who makes the laws, NOT Katleen Sebelius and Not Barack Obama. The Democrat Congress passed Obamacare and gave the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) free reign to do whatever it damn well pleases. Obamacare is making determinations as to what taxes citizens are required to pay. That too is the Constitutional responsibility given to Congress. Has Congress relinquished its Constitutional responsibility when it passed Obamacare? If so, they better take it back before it’s too late. This law clearly violates the Constitution separation of powers. The Obama Administration has already handed out 111 Obamacare waivers to U.S. companies. Unfortunately, if you’re a small business or don’t have connections you can’t get a waiver for your company. And there are some select groups who are exempt (Prisoners, illegal aliens, and foreign nationals, Amish, Mennonites, Scientologists and some Muslims). Even members of Congress are exempt from the Health Care Law, the very same law that they, themselves, passed. Waivers and exemptions to certain groups of people negate equal protection under the law. It is for these reasons that this law violates the Constitution and should be overturned HR3590 has more than 2000 pages but here is a summary, only 49 pages….. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:HR03590:@@@D&summ2=3&

“I like his fighting spirit.”

Unlike a number of surrender monkey Freepers who keep bitching and posting the norm:”America is done for”, “the GOP is full of RINO’s, let’s surrender” or “it doesn’t matter, we’re doomed, the GOP will vote Dem” etc etc..
