How Obamacare Has Changed One Family’s Situation to ‘It’s Either Eat or Buy Health Insurance’
The Blaze ^ | 10/1/13 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 10/01/2013 1:38:03 PM PDT by Nachum

With the new “Obamacare” health insurance exchanges officially open for business, Glenn Beck and his radio co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere went to www.healthcare.gov on Tuesday only to find what countless others were greeted with: glitches, errors, and messages asking you to hold.

Before long, they also spoke with a caller whose life is being turned upside down by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

“We appreciate your patience,” Gray said in the voice of a telephone operator. “You are Number 477,326 in line. Please continue to wait, as you will be taken in the order in which you arrived. Thank you for your patience.”

Nope.

You must starve to death by law.

Stalin starved millions of farmers to death. Obama can easily starve a bunch of urban and suburban Americans.

Rest comfortably, knowing that whichever you choose, you will be sending money to new world order.

For working folks working paycheck to paycheck despite falling above the obamacare subsidy line, it means going Galt. I predict that obamacare causes another housing crash.

People won’t be able to afford the private insurance, and will be forced onto the government exchanges. And if they’re not eligible for the subsidies, many will be clamoring for them.

“And so everyone is going to be on government subsidies,” Beck said. “I’m telling you by the time the next presidential election happens, 100 million people will be getting food stamps.”

It's all working just as planned for Democrats on the road to single payer, except for one HUGE obstacle - the GOP runs the House now and it's not likely they're going to lose that majority in 2014. In fact, if some of the moderate Republicans get Tea Party'd in the primaries, the House will become even more conservative than it is now. So single payer is totally out of the equation for the near future. All we're going to have for years to come are pee'd off low information voters who will realize they were sold a bridge to nowhere.

This is the very reason the wife and I are looking real hard at retiring in the Bahamas if we don’t stay in Hong Kong.

I don’t mean to be obtuse or promote lawlessness, but when do low information voters start working under the table, go mini-Galt even if they don’t know who he is, by not filling out their taxes and renewing their licenses etc and just say screw it, and do no government related paperwork at all?

LIV’s are already way ahead of most of us, in that respect.
Most of them are already “Gault”, in the sence that they have perfected being entirely self absorbed, and they feed on the lower level producers.

They will file tax returns, and claim EIC refunds for a net profit, if it works out in their favor.
Having several SSANs and juggling them does require some work.....

“Crabs in a bucket”, is what is happening.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I totally agree with the second sentence but not the first. This AIN’T NO KINDA FUN TO WATCH ATALL!!!! It might be if the only people suffering were the idiots who passed this crap into law. No one can tell me that this was done out of ignorance or incompetence, the fools who did this did it out of greed and malice aforethought.

This INSANITY is going to wreck the little that remains of the American economy.

Obama lied when he said that you could keep your doctor.

He lied when he said you could keep your plan.

He lied when he said that the average family would save $2500 per year.

He lied about it being affordable.

Now Obama is telling everybody that it’s a “Republican Shutdown”.

Makes me wonder who’s really to blame?

This story will be repeated all over the country - AND the New York Times - a group that bleeds for the ‘downtrodden’ will somehow miss the story. Same for the Washington Post and every other liberal newspaper.

To understand you have to have some knowledge of Stalin and USSR history.

Think of Obamacare as a modern day collective farm. Think of the productive middle class as the kulaks.

Obamacare is meant to shut down the economy (with help of EPA) and impoverish the political enemies of the NWO.
