  • Barnicle: Medicare and Medicaid are ‘Pillars of Our Culture’

    From Incoming Sect of HHS Dr Price's Bill HR2300.

    "Sec. 102. Election of Tax Credit Instead of Alternative Government or Group Plan Benefits Allows individuals to opt out of Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, and VA benefits and receive tax credit to purchase personal health plan instead."

    Note the majority of those that went on Obamacare went on Medicaid. So as that entitlement increases, cost containment will have to occur. Note, Seema Verma was brought aboard ( she was key in Indiana's Medicaid Waiver to make it work ) in a role to support Dr Price.

    My guess is Barnicle and all his ilk, know ( maybe not they are hacks ) what I just put in quotes, heck If I can find it on the web, they can.

    The "Great Societies" sacred stones are in danger of crumbling under MAGA-45, that has got give them even more indigestion than they already have...

    Yes HSA is not a policy, it is the tax free or credit vehicle of which a catastrophic insurance plan can be purchased as well as a Direct Primary Care Plan with a local MD of your choice. Making said credit available to everyone is in Dr Price’s Bill if my memory is correct which is a fatal flaw of Obamacare. Right now ( and before Obamacare ) unless you worked for an employer, or had a small business where you could take the credit, if you were somewhere in between ( 1099 contractor etc ) you were screwed, just like all those right now buying Gold, Silver and Bronze plans, they are with after tax dollars...

    "De-governmentalize and de-insuranceize routine care."

    Dr Price's bill ( HR2300 or HR3200 ? ) has a tax credit for everyone to go and purchase HSA insurance ( esentially catastrophic ) and you can legally pay for ( with your tax free dollars via the credit ) a Direct Primary Care Plan which is routine care on retainer with no paperwork.

    Again let me propose my Junk Yard Dog. Except the engine retrofit, all of this has been done, aka prototyped and test flown on a F-16.

    * F-16XL Delta Wing variant.
    * Diverterless Supersonic Inlet
    * And the one that hasn't been done add the F-119 engine and Vectored Thrust off a F-22.

    The last one I think is do-able. With the XL being longer and the F-119 a longer engine, I say why not. Especially since it would take you up too 35,000 lbs of thrust and give you supercruise potentially.

    I read the XL was a heavy hauler and gave a F-15 variant a run for it's money in a fly off and lost because of politics. Yes at best this junk yard dog might be Gen 3+, but with the maneuverability, heavy hauling and range how could this not be a versatile addition to the fleet. While it doesn't have robust landing gear and a huge gun, how would it not be a compliment to the A10?

    This picture below is close to what it would be, add the F-22 Turkey Feathers to it and you get the picture.

    This is a huge claim. This is on top of rumors of the 16x aka the return of their Wankel.

    I am enamored as of late with the Achates Power entry that is gaining steam. Their model is along the lines developing the architecture and technology and licensing it to any manufacture to do so, and they seem to have a lot of suitors lined up. An Opposed Piston 2 Stroke Diesel for starters. But they have gone after tweaking the porting w/ CFD as well as the pistons bowl shapes, I am impressed. I am equally impressed with the vertical layout and using a Roots Blower for External Scavenging for charging. I stumbled upon how Roots blowers in particular multiply torque in gobs at the low end. Paxton's and Turbo's can't compare. Tangent to this they didn't go with a stepped piston of other internal charging and it's problems.

    * Passive Solar for the House? Sure either for a new home or some retrofit if it makes $-sense.
    * Some Photovoltaic cells, for certain applications, again not a whole array and it is again about the Benjamin's.

    What they won't go for is a bunch of Credits, arm-twisting with a loan that funds a cadre of SEIU tech's doing your install on an entire Photovoltaic array and the loan with Fannie and Freddie or some other Gov't Org.

    Interesting...

    For years we heard "why aren't our best and brightest running" bla bla bla ( especially from the DNC ). And then they asked Lee Iococca to run, he looked at it and said, it is too broke, I can't fix it.

    So finally in DJT we had someone with that type of background, and not some slip and fall atty hack up through the ranks ( the Schumer's of the world ) that haven't been in the belly of the beast their whole life playing us with their 3 card monty, and that goes for both sides of the Uni-Party.

    So with that said, does anyone see what DJT has done here?

    He has opened the door for leaders from the private sector with a can do CEO mind set of goals, objectives, & Metrics that determine success or failure, not a never ending project ( at the state and federal level ) that would make the F-35 look like a simple washer fix on your faucet.

    D.C. IMHO has no idea as to the internal self examination exercises coming their way, aka Demming, Six Sigma etc.

    Mr Thiel is probably one of many that are tired of seeing Lansing, Boston, Sacramento ( and other state houses ) run like a Soviet Union breadline.

    The Legislature in CA will at somepoint have to pull a cranal-rectal-otomy as I don't see Thiel as a shrinking violet, fix it dang it or the voters will toss ya, that paradigm is coming, once people see tangible results from DJT and Company.

    Day one down the escalator. I was curious in almost a rubber necker kind of way and I try not to do that when their is an auto accident.

    By August 2015 I was convinced he'd be POTUS. for 2 reasons.

    1. One his security team. I don't remember where, but he was walking down a side walk and they were protecting him. I watched it a number of times, even in slo-mo it was high-def, via bloomberg I think. I counted something like 9 guys all Mil-Spec. Since then I have found out a fair bit about Corp Security and some for politicians, the hows and whys that I will not repeat, but let that go. It was then I realized he was serious, he was really gonna do this.

    The 2nd item was I was @ the OSH airshow with a number of people that were horrified about the McCain flap, and other things. One a Lawyer, one from the Beltway, some libs horrified at how bombastic he was ( I loved their reaction in horror Lol!). They had no clue as to the Rust Belt Rebellion as I call it and didn't get it when I tried to explain it. I realized the center of the country got it, they didn't and they were in for a big surprise and that was a gut feel.

    I go back and look at some of my and others post from that time frame and how prescient they were, man it was historic and a wild ride!

    Now with the Anglicisms. Smoke and mirrors. The document had a fair amount of American English usage.

    Maybe, sounds like he is from Boston, being from MA ( I defected 20+ yrs ago ) I have heard small apartments referred to as Flats, but it is rare...

    Weeble, Thanks to Whuptdue @ CTH, here is the transcript, perhaps it reads better and the answer you want is here:

    Listen here to the cued up portion of Kuhner Report 1/11/2017
    Rough transcript of relevant details:
    Kuhner: “Tom on PeeGate in Mass, go ahead Tom…”
    Tom:…”OK I’ll start at the beginning. What happened is Rick Wilson put out a tweet that kind of offended a lot of people on the political section of a website called 4Chan. Uh, so, it angered a lot of people-actually, the funny thing is it wasn’t many Trump supporters. It was mostly Jeb supporters that were in on this.
    Um, this started back in January of 2016. So, after that, we kind of got together and wrote some, you know – it was all joke stories. What’s funny is like half these things, like, things that you read about the pee stuff – that, all most of it came from Rick Wilson’s son. We found that his son was writing stuff like this on the internet. So, we kind of like compiled a little joke story and it was just meant to annoy Rick Wilson.
    So, Rick Wilson got it and he took it – he didn’t understand that a lot of it was written by his son or was based off of things that his son wrote. Um, so, Rick Wilson passed it up the chain through McMullen.

    Kuhner: Ok, now Tom, before you continue I want to ask you this…Because what you said to us on the phone was you were kind of ‘in on this’, correct?
    Tom: Yeah, a lot of us got together and we were – and we came up with a joke story…
    Kuhner: Basically a joke story, what they call ‘fan fiction’.
    Tome: Yeah,
    Kuhner: And, Rick Wilson, what you said, is an establishment Republican, a big #NeverTrump’er, close with the Bush’s – Jeb Bush, but also with ties to Marco Rubio and John McCain, correct?
    Tom: Correct.
    Kuhner: Ok, and then so, you pushed it to Rick Wilson. He obviously took the bait. Then, what did he do with the info?
    Tom: Ok, so then, um, somehow , I don’t know if it was him or one of the members of his staff – but they presented it to McMullen, uh, and then, uh, who you know what pages he’s got ties to and uh, then McMullen passed it onto McCain and then McCain passed it on to Comey an now at some point in these transactions a lot of, uh, more Russian stuff was added so that not all of this – a lot of the things were changed in it and like the Russians , uh, they put more of a Russian spin on it than what we had originally come up with.
    Kuhner: The five years that they had been cultivating Trump that they had been cultivating for five years – and they wanted him to buy properties and hotels and they tried to put sweeteners in there to hook him in. Right, all of that was, I think that was added by the CIA – correct, Tom?
    Tom: Yeah, yeah. These are all fake things that they just put a spin on it. Which is funny, that they just throw it into a story that they thought was true to begin with. And, um, what they – ok, so, after that, like, we put in things like’ Manafort’. If you know that towards the end,’ Manafort ‘ is misspelled three different times. And so, we put that in on purpose to see if (transmission is garbled) it would ?
    Kuhner: Tom, hold on, you’re breaking up on me. Tom, can you hear me? Hello? Ah! Ok, we just lost Tom. Did we lose him? Let’s try it..ok…we’re going to try to call him back because the sixty-four-thousand dollar question – I think I know the answer but ‘why would you have done this in the first place?’. Why? Now, I think the answer is, look, Rick Wilson is a very obnoxious guy. He’s always, he was always insulting Trump supporters throughout the entire campaign. He was rabidly anti-Trump.
    So, ok, we’ve got him back? OK, I think it was ‘let’s just prank him and just basically pull of a hoax, never thinking it was going to get this far.
    Tom, do we have you back on?
    Tom: Yeah, okay, so
    Kuhner: Tom,
    Tom: So, we never thought it was going to go this far, exactly. And
    Kuhner: Tom, why did you do it (cross talk)…Tom, if you don’t mind me asking, why did you do it in the first place?
    Tom: To annoy Rick Wilson. It wasn’t meant to, like, scuttle anyone or see who would publish it or this and that. It was just to annoy Rick Wilson.
    Kuhner: Ok, we’re missing like why would this annoy him? Wouldn’t he love this, that, you know . . .?
    Tom: No, we’re gonna show the stuff that his son – like, where we had all the things that show what his son had said half these things (cross talk)
    Kuhner: Ah, so basically to embarrass him, to humiliate him. You believe something that your own son wrote as fiction.
    Tom: Correct. Yes.
    Female co-host: I have a question. Are you going to come out on other than this talk show that you and your friends made up this joke? (cross talk) Are you going to go public with it?
    Tom: We have someone right now who is working with a lawyer to prove that the documents he presented with Rick Wilson are, in fact, from January. Well, in fact, I’m turning them over .
    Kuhner: Well, Tom, listen. I really want to thank you for calling the show because you’ve completely clarified this. I’ve got to ask you one final question, Tom, ok?
    Tom: Absolutely.
    Kuhner: So, this started off as a hoax, as a prank, as a joke to go after Rick Wilson. Is it not frightening that what starts out as a prank, as a joke, ends up being in out intelligence report? Ah, we lost him again. Ok. Hopefully we can get him back on.
    I mean, I want you to think about this. That the CIA put this in their intelligence report and not only was this put in their intelligence report – this completely bogus story – unverified – unsubstantiated – clearly in fact, a hoax orchestrated – but then, they send it around (this is the key point) to everybody on Capitol Hill – all majors, the top senators got this briefing. People in the intelligence community supposedly got this briefing. Obama supposedly got this briefing.
    So, complete fake news was taken up by the CIA , just unconditionally, without any vetting, without any fact-checking and then they pass it off as ‘truth’, as the real thing to bring down a president-elect. I want you to think about that.
    And on top of it, he just admitted it. By the way, McCain has now admitted it. He was the guy that sent the staffer off to meet with this supposed British agent who also had this bogus dossier and he fed it to Comey to bring down Trump as well.
    This is our intelligence community?
    Then they’re even caught adding a Russian spin to it, on top of it all, to make the story even worse for Trump and to, sort of make his connection with Putin even tighter? They’re making everything up!
    And these are the people entrusted with the national security of The United States?
    Listen, my friends, heads have to roll.
    Jake Tapper has to go.
    McManiac (McCain) has to resign over this. He needs to be forced to resign over this.
    And the CIA, it is now time for major sweeping reforms and a purge of all of these political hacks at the CIA.
