“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

It is for Freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1

We have been informed from our carrier of ten years that our health insurance is going to end in March, thank you Obamarxism. Just like hundreds of millions who have dutifully paid all of their insurances their entire lives so they could have all of their pre-existing conditions covered, are about to be dropped thanks to a bunch of power hungry Marxists. What if we don’t want to go into a gummit pool to buy our insurance and have our deductable and premiums raised what about us? The people who are going to be hurt the worst are the ones who have been playing by the rules their entire lives, which is what this program was designed to do.

These Commies hate America and everything it stands for so their plan is to destroy it piece by piece until it finally becomes the Soviet utopia they have always dreamed. They have killed the Auto industry, Banking is on its last legs and they are in the process of killing coal and cheap energy. One of their most hated industries was Insurance which they deemed as unfair when a corrupt gummit can give it to you for free, so here we are more overpriced and underperforming bureaucracy to replace a perfectly well functioning free market system. They want to rule every piece of your life and this is their dream come true.

We watched the rollout of the Billion dollar website which was outsourced to Canada since the owner was a Friend of Michelle, leading to a corrupt disaster. When you have millions of unemployed programmers in America who have lost their jobs thanks to outsourcing, you have to grease the wheels of one of your crony’s? How much of that grease came back to Michelle? We know she took some from her years at University Hospital, so how much of this Billion plus did she get? There are literally thousands of companies here who do these websites every day and they prove that even with the simplest of tasks the gummit is an inefficient sloth inhabited by some of the most ignorant people in the country. Imagine using this website to get permission for your child’s heart and lung transplant and you have the nightmare coming your way. Welcome to the new America; comrade.

It is almost incomprehensible in a country which has Amazon.com you can have a website which does not even come close to working. You have to be an utter buffoon to not be able to find the intellectual manpower to design a fairly simple website, yet the gummit and Katy Sebelius found a way. Now you can see what the claim process is going to look like from not only your standpoint, but doctors are going to be submitting thousands of pages of documents to get procedures done and patients admitted. You will no longer have your family doctor if he doesn’t use the approved of providers and it is going to become a very sterile and inferior system as it collapses into gummit run healthcare. That is when everyone will belong to a subsistence health program waiting for their Death Website to give them the thumbs up.

Kathleen Sebelius needs to be fired for absolute incompetence and Nazi Pelosi needs to go with her along with Harry Reid. These and their fellow Marxists need to be fought tooth and nail next election to get our healthcare back. It is not the law of the land and the only reason it exists is because the Marxists owned DC for two short years which we are all paying for. There is not one reason to expect this program to be anything but a pure collapse. Even if these Dems want Nationalized Healthcare, people are going to suffer financially and physically going through this upcoming meltdown. There is only one way to stop this train wreck and that is to repeal it. There needs to be a nationwide outcry and movement to stop and destroy Obamacare. Every candidate has to run against one issue and one issue alone which is repealing this boondoggle. Candidates should be able to get elected on the corruption of the website alone, but they need to capitalize on the fear and trembling this country has for their upcoming financial losses and disruption Clowncare represents. They need to begin a Cruz-ade against Deathcare and take back the Senate to prepare for the eventual Presidential replacement. It is time to wake the sleeping giant that 1930 style Marxism does not work and their website is more proof. From this failed website to potential death panels, it is time for Shock and Awe against Obozocare.

Pray America is Waking Up

Hiya AB!

Hot topic today appears to be about a non-functioning website. Perhaps we'll hear pundits debate about whether Sebelius will get canned. Will politicians and their sycophant MSM fawns address the jaw-dropping number of people losing their current medical insurance, and unable to obtain comparable insurance under the abominable Affordable Care Act?

I don't expect there will be discussion about the association between Moochelle O's Princeton roommate and the no-bid contract.

Even though Ted Cruz is and may well be for a long time the most important conservative politician in America he is banned from the Talking Heads...after he destroyed David Gregory that time the DNC MSM including Karl Rove’s RINO Fox News, will no longer give him a stage.

But the people on the Talking Heads, including Fox News, will be sure to trash him at every turn.

F&F showed a graphic this morning -- all 3 networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) are running headlines that question the actions and problems of the Obama Administration. Is the luster finally dulling? Don't bet the farm on that. MSM need to make Obama appear successful because they have invested so much in him.

==

I seemed, about mid-week, that the immigration legislation push was making a come-back.

Oh yeah, the Obama Admin would give anything for a new crisis or controversial topic as a distraction from the healthcare.gov fiasco.

Rubio was back -- claiming he was opposed to Comprehensive Immigration. [To get elected in politics, one must be a shapeshifter, it seems.] Now, he can claim he has been on all sides of the immigration issue.


==

Which brings up the question of the week:

^^^^^

What are the odds that Gregory will ask honest questions of this guest?
Such as: How did the Obamacare mandates cause your premiums to become unworkable for so many customers?

Or will he just try to trash a private insurance company.

PS: How many Americans know what “mandate” means?

F&F is pushing women’s lib again. This is the 2nd lengthy interview they have had recently.

[Either it is a slow news day or FoxNews is trying to create an agenda.]

It would be interesting if they spent that much time on real news topics. Too many times, the hosts have cut off interviewees of ‘real’ news topics because they never seem to have time to do justice to those topics. FoxNews has too much fluff any more.

Democrat constituents(include the media) are whining louder about the
web site glitches than about the private sector economy being destroyed.

The legislation forcing buying of health care insurance is not ever what was intended from US Constitution based on experience and good sense.

Before they vote again, they should ask Democrats about ‘jobs’ and
fixing the economy.

They were made fools of spewing that nonsense for Democrats.

Morning AB, All

Yes that was me on WBOC last week, a local Fox affiliate. Full five minutes, playing with my dog, cause I showed up for the dog barking law and made a scene

When I exited the Sussex county council I was besieged by newspaper, television and radio reporters, you should smile. Seems I can get attention and publicity, why can't the Republicans?

Some guy shoved a microphone in my face and hell, I didn't know, I went on a rant. Turns out I was on the radio, LIVE!

HEH

Next week I'm GOING TO DOVER!!

Cause I'm sick of laws, we don't need no more laws, I want to pass a law that legislators can make NO MORE LAWS!

We are already bound and gagged....well that's what I said in front of the Sussex county council, sick of laws...AND "This is the greatest place in the world to live. The living's cheap, no sales tax, great weather. Go out on the street, right out there on the Circle...ask any passerby where's the greatest place to live. They will all answer, RIGHT HERE IN SUSSEX COUNTY DELAWARE"

I bet them money on it.

HEH

Got all the newspaper guys....now TV...heh, my jerk of a neighbor sees the WBOC truck in my driveway and he sticks his head in the guy's car. Not one second of that Jerk was aired, heh.

Selling tickets this morning for my church's talent show where I am going to be a nun, dear Lord do not ask what other mischief I get in to.

Everyone has seen me either in the Cape Gazette or WBOC, rumbles about running me for an office.

My platform?

NO MORE LAWS. WE DON'T NEED NO MORE STINKIN' LAWS BY THE POLITICAL ELITE.

I was thinking of running for City council, there's talk of putting me up for Governor....gotta smile.  photo 131023_001_zpsce2889b5.jpg

Great catch Bud! You are always right on track today being no exception.

The friend of mooch you refer to,Toni, Townes, Whitley,Smith, Berkowitz, Seinfeld,whatever, who also hates whitey and is in some black club with the big mooch. Both went to Princeton(can you say affirmative action at work here) together.She has quite a history of website destruction.

In Canaduhhh through her CGI Fed corp. she took on the job of gun registration for the all to willing Canuks. Bottom line she was given millions to create the website. Some years later and two billion Canadian marks/rubles or whatever, she was fired. They had to get rid of the unworkable website, hire someone new and start all over.

Uh... sound familiar?

Putting socialists in charge of anything is always a mistake.

In reference to your losing your health insurance for obamcare to become a success they have to get rid of all the competition. If only zero care is left it will work,double the price/half the benefits or not.

When Zero said you can keep your health care if you want it was true. The same message was true when he said new coal companies can start up if they want. What he didn't say is that it would be near impossible for either to exist in regulation nation.

Once again the only good thing about socialist dems is that they always self-destruct.Hopefully, they are in that stage now.

FOX “News” and Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La.

Jindal - Doesnt want gov’t running health care

Wallace - continues to want RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
(for his darling Romney) and changes, and limits,
subject to rollout problems

Jindal - Americans will lose healthcare and have higher premiums

Wallace - who wants delay to keep socialized medicine
alive (FOX “News” agenda) shifts again to healthcare
to Louisiana
— and blames Jindal personally for the relative
lack of healthcare there.

Wallace - “aren’t you leaving (these people) out?”

Jindal - Does not say no directly, but explains how
he improved care quality, expanded care, and decreased
times [perhaps a little too technical for the audience]

Wallace continues with his/FOX “News” attack on Jindal
claiming he was personally stopping RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
and the White Hut’s medicaid expansion.

Jindal explains that more people in his state would lose
their insurance by adopting that medicaid expansion.
He explains that he “has a better approach” “through
private public partnerships”. Clear discussion continues
which Wallace interrupts as Wallace claims Jindal
represents the GOP, which Wallace calls “the stupid party”.

Jindal points out that it is DC that is “dysfunctional”,
and points out clearly that the states are doing better,
and “setting records for people working” (alongs with GOP
governors) “in thirty states”.

Wallace apparently does not like that and,
ignoring what was said again,
claims the GOP needs a new agenda and asks what “new
conservative proposal” is coming out. Jindal knocks it out
of the park. Education. Choice. States rights.
as one example.

And entitlement reform and worthless economic advice...

October 22, 2009—Transcript of Pelosi, House Democratic Leaders, and Economists’ Press Conference Following Economic Forum

Q: Can you give us an update on the health care … [inaudible] … how close were …

Speaker Pelosi. ...I have been in a meeting for four hours....And that is what our purpose is, is to improve quality, lower cost, expand coverage, and retain choice for those who like what they have.

And in doing so, as the President has said: “Health care reform is entitlement reform and entitlement reform is essential to lowering the deficit.”

Just watched Xavier Becerra tell us that under the exchanges insurance rates are going down for the vast majority of Americans. It amazes me how effortlessly these Obama sycophants lie. And to top it off, this was his response when confronted with the infamous Obama lie about how we get to keep the insurance we already have and like.

Wallace shows reporter Peter Doocey interviewing young people on the streets of DC, regarding the healthcare.gov website.

Several respondents said they would pay the $95 fine.

==

Per some posts, the fine is $95 OR 1% of the total family income, whichever is larger.

Those who think they only have to pay $95 may be in for a rude awakening, come next IRS Tax Day.

Some quick math:

$95 would be 1% of $9,500 or $4.57/hour for a full-time worker. [Who works full time and earns only $9,500 per year?]

At minumum wage ($7.25) the annual salary would be $15,080 for a full-time worker. At 1% their fine could be $150.

The median household income in the US is $51,371. At 1% their fine would be $513.

The fine increases "more than sevenfold in the next two years, with the fine running as much as $695 per person by 2016. The family maximum would be as high as $2,085 (or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater)." [source: CSMonitor.com

Notice how the pols and Admin never mention the 'percent' fine -- they only mention the $95 fine.

So the Marxist Congressman tells Chris Wallace that “Andrew Stryker” was paying $600/mo for his insurance and now under Obamacare is saving $5000/yr. So his unicorn insurance is giving him $500 in welfare, guess who is paying for it.

First, there likely is no Andrew Stryker and second that was his answer to why did Obama lie about keeping your insurance. The ends justify the means. This is pure Marxist insanity.

Two weeks ago, these same ten Democrats went on record to vote against any delay. I would look closer at how they actually voted instead of the rhetoric they now offer to detract attention away from their votes.

Juan is pulling stuff out of the air to support his position. He keeps saying this or that ‘may’ happen regarding health insurance.

So far, little of what Juan claims holds up. Britt points out that that people are not being allowed to keep their current coverage, as Obama promised. Juan’s response is that they may like the new policy better.

[Juan, Obama LIED. Regardless of whether the new policy is better or cheaper, Obama LIED. Many cannot keep their current coverage, as insurance companies are dropping thousands of policy holders every day.]

Not so fast, LLS. In case you didn't follow it closely this week, David Gregory spoke heresy on Morning Joe, Wed., iirc, with the blown rollout of ObieCare, asked is government too big ?

He even asked if "Republicans were right ?"

This sounds like the theme for MTP. Let's see if the regime has gotten to him and set his mind right before air time.

Another good point.

Yellen’s confirmation is a chance to publicly reveal details
of Democrats Economic Policies and how
they haven’t work, and ask her
to acknowledge each fact.

Rick Santorum just spouted the establishment GOP line about Cruz on MTP...about good intentions but bad tactics.
The tactics that will give us both houses of congress next year and the impeachment, removal and frog march of Obama in 2015.

I voted for Rick in the South Carolina Primary...quoth the raven-nevermore.
