Obamacare Is Dead and Here's Why [Obamacare Ongoing Thread]
Town Hall ^ | 1-26-10 | Robert A. Levy

Posted on 01/25/2010 11:27:02 PM PST by JustPiper

As the Massachusetts blame game unfolds, the president’s unpopular health bill leads the list. But the substantive provisions of the bill were just part of the problem. Perhaps more important, voters were appalled by how the deal unfolded.

Consider the pre-election giveaway to the labor unions. Negotiators agreed to exempt union contracts until 2018 from the tax on so-called Cadillac health-insurance plans. That backroom bargain not only outraged the voters, it also violated the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, requiring the federal government to extend equal protection of the laws to all U.S. persons. Of course, not all voters understood the constitutional nuances, but they sensed that something was very wrong; and they reacted.

I have been disturbed by the socialists for years, ever since I learned many members of Congress 'openly' joined the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America). Several years ago, the names were published on the DSA site. (since removed of course) Please post any info you have, many of you have been on this issue for many years, & if we can store it all on one thread, we have our FreeRepublic Warehouse on the enemies of the state. How DO we combat this, when it's coming at us from every angle? When the people have been asleep for decades. Please post anything you have found or accumulated. Also choose a dictator these people follow, of particular interest,those in D.C. who have been quoted with their adulation of one.

Communism- Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Trotskyism-Maoism- Hoxhaism-Hoxhaism-Titoism ETC

Here is a real, working tiny url link:

Here are only two of the many phony links you posted:

http://xrl.in/5098

http://xrl.in/4zlq

Your fake links are not tiny url links.

Because of the immense amount of time you have cost volunteer moderators trying to clean up your copyright bypasses and the material which you posted from an extremist site, do not use any shortened links again.

Just use the actual working link which goes to a published site allowed on Free Republic.

Thanks.

Duly noted. I wish a mod would have simply told me on the very first url it happened, how could I know? I have always been respectful of rules for 12 years here. If anyone follows me at all they know my hard work & ethic.

I would have rectified & deleted that fake url add on IMMEDIATELY. The end result would be the mods here would not have gone through what they did, nor would I feel as I do. My motive for the url was honest, I only wish it would have been brought to my attention, not to find out like this

Stupak to Retire?

First Read: “With just a few days to go before the end of this recess, House Democrats are cautiously optimistic that they could get through it without a single retirement announcement. That said, there is still a concern that some important incumbents in districts that they are uniquely suited could call it quits. At the top of the concern list this week: Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak. The Democrat best known this year as the Democrat who delivered the winning margin of votes for the president’s health-care reform bill is said to be simply exhausted. The criticism he received — first from the left, and then from the right — has worn him and his family out. And if he had to make the decision now, he’d probably NOT run. As of this writing, a bunch of senior Democrats (many of the same ones who twisted his arm on the health care vote) are trying to talk him into running. The filing deadline in Michigan is still a month away, but veterans of that state’s politics are skeptical anyone other than Stupak can hold that district in this political climate.”

Stop indoctrinating children
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2489279/posts?page=7

On Friday, April 16, 2010 *** THOUSANDS *** of public schools around the country will permit students and teachers to refuse to speak during class during a political event sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) called the Day of Silence which is intended to increase society’s affirmation of homosexuality and Gender Identity Disorder. A national coalition of pro-family organizations is asking parents to call their children out of school on the Day of Silence if their school permits students and/or teachers to remain silent during class.

Major slash in disability — 61% of SSI?

BigSkyFreeper posted on another thread that 61% of the SSI check was slashed due to 0-care. This might affect all disability recipients.

SSI is the largest check that disability recipients receive. It will hurt like heck.

I cannot find where BigSkyFreeper said this. Do you have a link?

BigSkyFreeper did say this:

On top of that, $500 billion was cut from Medicare (Baucus called it a “Medicare savings”), and 2 million seniors will be completely cutoff from Medicare Part D (the prescription drug program) in 2011.

No Social Security COLA Increase in 2010....or in 2011

And SloopJohnB posted this interesting analysis on the same thread:

The $500 billion Medicare cuts were in the health care bill. Republicans brought it up on Capitol Hill, and Democrats accused them of “fearmongering” and scaring seniors.

All I have to go on is a letter from my local SSA office here in Montana. The letter didn’t go into specifics, but I’m not sure if it just affected all recipients or targeted a few nationwide.
