OBAMA PRESSING TO SHOVE MILITARY INTO THE STATE RUN EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

He is after everybody……Even those who stand the line…..

The only thing I can say to this is “I told you so”!  This guy is hell bent on destroying this nation in every way he can.  The military folks had better wake up and smell the coffee.  He is after them and all the retirees who use Tri-Care.  And that’s just about everybody.  Click here for the article.  The House had better not cave on this otherwise every “R” who allows this will get replaced this year also………

OBAMA PLANS TO PUSH MILITARY RETIREES INTO HIS “OBAMACARE” HEALTH CO-OPS

I WANT YOU!! And we WILL get you...

I hate to say “I told you so”, but….”I told you so”…  Way back when the Pelosi/Reid ran congress was working on “Obamacare”, I was telling everyone, to include all the liberals I work with that this was what was going to happen to the military, and damned if I’m not right.  This was his/they’re plan all along.  They plan to screw the very people that stand up and VOLUNTEER to protect this great country, and yet they expect people in the military to continue to happily continue to serve.  I think these idiot Dems/Libs are sorely mistaken.  We vets will not sit still for this.  I will be writing my Reps ASAP on this issue and I hope all my fellow Vets do the same.  I do think though there is an ulterior motive/goal at work here.  I think it is within the realm of possibility that ultimately these idiots do want the military retention rates to plummet.  This would provide the impetus for the DOD to do way with the all volunteer military.  This in-turn would allow the DOD to severely slash the military pay and benefits because at that point conscription, or the draft will have been reimplemented in order to maintain adequate troop levels.   So, there will be no need for the higher wages.    Done deal……  Our military will have been reduced to just another 2nd or 3rd rate force……  Think I am wrong?   I don’t……..  Click the pic for the story…

MY LETTER TO MY REPS:

I have just learned that President Obama plans to shift all the military retiree medical into the Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges by making Tri-Care costs so high and prohibited that most if not all retirees will be forced into exchanges.  This draconian plan is beyond the pale in design and intent and we retirees and veterans will not stand for this atrocious plan.  We vets will find it impossible to support ANY member of Congress that supports this plan.  We will make our voices be heard during your next election cycle should you vote in favor of this extraordinarily repugnant plan. We will be watching your actions and votes on this issue.

TRICARE HEALTH RECORD SECURITY BREACH

WERE YOUR FILES HACKED? CLICK FOR THE PDF

Gee, didn’t see this one coming did we?  (Sorry, it’s a rhetorical question..)  This is just a small sample of what will happen to everyone, eventually.  As much as I would like to single out the government and blame them for this breach, in reality I can’t.  As long as medical service providers, insurance companies and any other entity dealing with confidential patient information is hooked into the web, this is going to be an ongoing threat for everyone.  I do find it interesting that in this case it is Tricare because it really doesn’t surprise me that it would get hit.  After all, how much confidence do you have in an insurance provider that has a congressional liaison office?  It is because of the inherent problems with Tricare and its lack of quality service that some people get.  I know many people who have nightmare stories about their experiences with it.  Here is the information;

STATEMENT

On September 14, 2011, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) reported a data breach involving personally identifiable and protected health information (PII/PHI) impacting an estimated 4.9 million military clinic and hospital patients. The information was contained on backup tapes from an electronic health care record used in the military health system (MHS) to capture patient data from 1992 through September 7, 2011, and may include Social Security numbers, addresses and phone numbers, and some personal health data such as clinical notes, laboratory tests and prescriptions. There is no financial data, such as credit card or bank account information, on the backup tapes.

The risk of harm to patients is judged to be low despite the data elements involved since retrieving the data on the tapes would require knowledge of and access to specific hardware and software and knowledge of the system and data structure. Considering the totality of the circumstances, we determined that potentially impacted persons or households will be notified of this incident via letter. We regret that the information required to initiate notification is not available at this time, but we will ensure that it is done in an accurate and timely manner and in compliance with all applicable DoD guidelines. Due to the large volume of individuals potentially impacted by this incident, we anticipate that individual notification will take at least 4-6 weeks; therefore, this notice is being posted in the interim. The incident continues to be investigated and additional information will be published as soon as it is available. Meanwhile, both SAIC and TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) are reviewing current data protection security policies and procedures to prevent similar breaches in the future.

Anyone who suspects that they were impacted by this incident is urged to take steps to protect their personal information and should be guided by the Federal Trade Commission at: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/consumers/defend.html.

Concerned patients may contact the SAIC Incident Response Call Center, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time at the following numbers:

United States, call toll free: (855) 366-0140

 

International, call collect: (952) 556-8312

 

Questions & Answers

Q. Whose personal information was at risk of compromise?

A. Approximately 4.9 million patients who received care from 1992 through September 7, 2011 in the San Antonio area military treatment facilities (MTFs) (including the filling of pharmacy prescriptions) and others whose laboratory workups were processed in these same MTFs even though the patients were receiving treatment elsewhere.

Q. What type of information was lost?

A. The PII/PHI data elements involved include, but are not limited to names, Social Security numbers, addresses, diagnoses, treatment information, provider names, provider locations and other patient data, but do not include any financial data, such as credit card or bank account information.

Q. Can just anyone access this data?

A. No. Retrieving the data on the tapes requires knowledge of and access to specific hardware and software and knowledge of the system and data structure.

Q. Why have more than two weeks passed before this notification was posted?

A. The exact circumstance surrounding this data loss remains the subject of an ongoing investigation. We did not want to raise undue alarm in our beneficiaries and so wanted to determine the degree of risk this data loss represented before making notifications.

Q. Will you be notifying beneficiaries?

A. After careful deliberation, we have decided that we will notify all affected beneficiaries. We did not come to this decision lightly. We used a standard matrix to determine the level of risk that is associated with the loss of these tapes. Reading the tapes takes special machinery. Moreover, it takes a highly skilled individual to interpret the data on the tapes. Since we do not believe the tapes were taken with malicious intent, we believe the risk to beneficiaries is low. Nevertheless, the tapes are missing and given the totality of the circumstances, we determined that individual notification was required in accordance with DoD guidance.

TRICARE and SAIC are working together to identify as quickly as possible all beneficiaries whose information may have been involved in the breach. Because of the databases involved, we expect to be able to send individual notifications within the next 6 weeks. In the interim, we are posting this general announcement so that our beneficiaries were aware of the situation.

Q. What should affected beneficiaries do to protect themselves?

A. Beneficiaries can monitor their credit and place a free fraud alert on their credit for a period of 90 days using the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) web site. The FTC site also provides other valuable information regarding actions that can be taken now or in the future, should any problems develop. This information is available at: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/consumers/defend.html

Q. Will credit monitoring and restoration services be provided to protect affected individuals against possible identity theft? If no, why not?

A. No. The risk of harm to patients is judged to be low despite the data elements involved. Retrieving the data on the tapes would require knowledge of and access to specific hardware and software and knowledge of the system and data structure. To date, we have no conclusive evidence that indicates beneficiaries are at risk of identity theft, but all are encouraged to monitor their credit and place a free fraud alert on their credit for a period of 90 days using the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) web site.

Q. How can affected beneficiaries get more information?

A. Beneficiaries can call the SAIC Incident Response Call Center, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time at the following numbers:

United States, call toll free: (855) 366-0140

 

International, call collect: (952) 556-8312

WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES ADVISES SENIORS OF THIER PRIVACY RIGHTS

This agency will share your confidential information whether you want them to or not......

The reason I am posting this is due to the fact that in reading this notification you will notice several “loop-holes” that this agency can and will use in order to justify the “legal” sharing of the seniors private confidential health information.  I have highlighted the statements in this document that raise my eyebrows.  I call on all to be wary of these tactics and contact your Representatives and give them an ear-full of your opinion on this.  The “sharing” of confidential information without your express opinion is outrageous and should not be allowed in any instance/s that is not related to any investigation of a criminal nature.  These Brown-shirted bureaucrats must be thrown out on their arses, along with any politician who agrees with these policies.  Click these links for the documents.

(UPDATED 022811-021611) BREAKING: Committee rejects plan to fully defund ObamaCare‏

ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW THESE COWARDLY, DOUBLE-DEALING, MEALLY-MOUTHED PEOPLE TO DOUBLE CROSS US? I THINK NOT!!

HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT

To say I am utterly appalled is an utter understatement!  Sorry about being redundant here but this is outrageous!  We Conservatives sent these people to DC to do just that!  DE-FUND OBAMACARE ! In fact, that was their platform.  “Send me to Washington so we can de-fund the health-care bill and stop it cold in its tracks”.  We did not send these people there just to go back to “business as Usual”.   I am going to write my Congressman/woman ASAP and tell her in no uncertain terms that this is unacceptable.  These yahoos need to understand that if they do not do this, we will throw them out on their ear their next election cycle and the GOP will be marginalized just like the Dems.  A third party will rise and the GOP WILL be left out in the cold.  We cannot allow these cowards to double cross us voters.  SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD NOW!!!!!

TUESDAY MIDDAY—
BREAKING NEWS ON OBAMACARE REPEAL:

The House Rules Committee has rejected Rep. Steve King’s
proposal to FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare, failing to agree to
“protect” King’s amendment when it comes to the House floor.

Bottom line — Republicans on the Rules Committee refused
to play hardball to fully defund ObamaCare. By doing so,
they are allowing Pelosi’s “mandatory” self-funding
provisions — which many say are unconscionable if not
unconstitutional — to stand! This will force this
Congress to approve most of the funding for ObamaCare.

FoxNews says King’s provision would “cripple all government
operations devoted to executing the health law.”

DEBATE BEGINS THIS AFTERNOON.

IT IS URGENT THAT CITIZENS EXPRESS THEIR VOICE ON THE ISSUE
OF WHETHER OBAMACARE SHOULD BE FULLY DEFUNDED RIGHT NOW.

MY LETTER TO HERERRA:

I just received this in my in-box:

TUESDAY MIDDAY—
BREAKING NEWS ON OBAMACARE REPEAL:

The House Rules Committee has rejected Rep. Steve King’s
proposal to FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare, failing to agree to
“protect” King’s amendment when it comes to the House floor.

DEBATE BEGINS THIS AFTERNOON.”

If this is true, this is totally unacceptable.  We Conservatives did not send you and your fellow Freshmen to DC so “business as usual” could continue.  The key people who may be shrinking away from de-funding, need to understand that failure to de-fund OBAMACARE will result in their seat going to someone more worthy come their next election cycle.  We are not going to tolerate anymore Representatives who say one thing, then do another.  I am sure, that if in fact this reporting is accurate, the GOP will suffer the same fate as the Democrat Party come the next election cycles.  If the GOP does not do what we sent you there to do, it will be marginalized, with a viable 3rd Party coming to the forefront.  I urge you to press for de-funding ObamaCare in toto and not support any effort to not do so.
Unlike your predecessor, I expect you to listen to us Conservatives here in Dist#3 in SW Washington.  I hardly never got any type of replies back from him.  On the other hand, I require, and would hope, that you would feel compelled to correspond with your Constituents.

IRS NEEDS MONEY!!

UPDATE 021611

Urgent Action Required!

WEDNESDAY P.M.—
BREAKING NEWS ON OBAMACARE DEFUND VOTE:

Our contacts on Capitol Hill have confirmed to us that
Rep. Steve King will bring his amendment to the House
floor to FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare ON THURSDAY or at the
latest Friday.

THE KING AMENDMENT IS THE ONLY OPTION THAT FULLY
DEFUNDS OBAMACARE.

+ + ObamaCare will grow “like a malignant tumor”

Without the King Amendment, Nancy Pelosi’s “mandatory” self-
funding provisions — a total of more than $105 BILLION IN
OBAMACARE SPENDING — “will flow to grow ObamaCare like a
malignant tumor,” according to Rep. King.

IT IS URGENT THAT CITIZENS EXPRESS THEIR VOICE ON THE
ISSUE OF WHETHER OBAMACARE SHOULD BE FULLY DEFUNDED RIGHT
NOW.

AMERICA RISING VIDEO AN OPEN LETTER TO DEMOCRATS

BERTHA LEWIS: A SOCIALIST RALLYING CRY FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM

What are we to infer from this other than the obvious?  If we take all available information and make an educated judgment based on what we see and hear, some of it posted on this site, the hard left Dems are intent on pushing the Socialist agenda.  An agenda, by the way,  The POTUS does not openly deny or counter in any way.  As evident by the ratcheting up of his anti-Republican rhetoric, he is in full battle stations mode and is getting shriller by the day.  Personally, I hope that they (Dems) get so worked up they really do something so stupid, so heinous, so outrageous, the American public cannot take any more and wretches at the sight of them.  They are more like rabid dogs at this point than human beings.  All sense of dignity, honor and truthfulness has been lost, cast away like yesterdays news.   They have no shame and are in my opinion nothing short of seditious.  They are already resorting to all sorts of election dirty tricks and smoke an mirrors. In my life, I have NEVER heard a sitting President sound and act so small, petty and just plain undignified.  He is a disgrace to the office and our nation.

OR IS THERE A LITTLE HOPE?

SENATOR PATTY MURRAY CAMPAIGN FLIER – – NOT RUNNING ON HER RECORD – I WONDER WHY??

DINO ROSSI FOR SENATE

Attached you will find the flier I just got in the mail from our illustrious Senator Murray.  I find it very telling that she makes no mention of her support of all the liberal agenda items that have been passed by the Senate, not the very least of which is the Health-care  Bill that she voted in favor of.  In this flier all she talks about is dredging the Columbia River and the river commerce.  Is this the best she can do?  I guess so when you’ve helped to bankrupt America and force and unconstitutional health care law down our throats, all for our own good of course…….  Click the pic for the flier….

As you can see by this list, Senator Murray is in complete lock-step with the “Progressives”  that are destroying this great nation.  As you can read on this site, in all the letters I have written to her, her reply is always “Toeing the party line” or non-committal.  She has been a disgrace since she won her election running as “The Mom in tennis shoes”.  Well, we didn’t know that those shoes were going to lead us down this path to ruination, serfdom, and dependence on foreign suppliers of energy.  She has proven herself to be a major player in our problems nationally and at a state level.  Both her, now in November, and Senator Cantwell in 2012, must be sent packing.

(UPDATED 050911) GE FAILS TO KEEP U.S. JOBS IN AMERICA WHILE PUSHING ITS “HEALTHYMAGINATION” AGENDA – THE REALITIES OF THE CFLs AND THE GREEN AGENDA See update

THE USA SURRENDERS MORE TO THE CHICOMMS

Here is one for all you out there who believe the GE “Healthymagination” hype being pushed at us via their copious TV ads as of late is a good thing….  If you are familiar with this web site, you will recall the posts detailing the GE/Liberal-Socialist Democrat unholy alliance they set up in order to push their socialized healthcare agenda on us.

As I was reading this story that describes the closing of the last incandescent light bulb factory in the USA, I was disheartened to learn that after this plant closes, the venerable ol’ light bulb will literally burn out, fading forever from the American landscape as we knew it.  This timeless link to Thomas A. Edison will be nothing more than a fond, warmly lit memory, now thanks to the “Greenies” and their schemes.  Because of their agenda, (getting the government to sign off on a ban incandescent bulbs by 2014) we as a society and a nation, are being forced to use the more “eco-friendly” methods of illuminating our life, such as using “Compact Fluorescent Lights” more commonly known as CFL’s.  These bulbs are touted as typically using less electricity and subsequently, producing an equivalent of light output normally associated with a higher wattage incandescent bulb.  It all sounds like a good deal all around right?  We use less electricity, get more light, get more bang for our buck, and life is good, right? Right??……Or is it?

In order to understand my argument, you must first understand how fluorescent lights are made and work.  The principal is pretty straight forward.  You make a glass tube of some sort or shape, fill the tube with a gas that will produce a plasma when electrified, affix electrodes at each end, sealing the ends closed. Apply a DC current and voilà, a fluorescent light.   Well,…. not so fast…..  I left out one very important component; Mercury.  A drop of mercury is added just before the tube is sealed, and its purpose is to enhance and facilitate a much more efficient flow of electrons/current through the gas-filled tube.  As the first charge of current passes through the tube at the end of its production cycle, the drop of mercury vaporizes, filling the tube with mercury vapor.  With all this being said, now that we are all on the same page now, here is the rub.  I remember when these CFL first hit the markets.  Everyone thought that they were kinda cool and would save us a ton of money and hey, life would be good.  Well, shortly there after, the environmentalist groups all stood up and said that the wide spread use of these bulbs would result in mercury being dumped into the landfills and would end up leaching into the ground water.  So the message here was, these bulbs are bad for the environment, don’t use them.  So here we are now, more than a decade down the road, and now the “Greenies” are pushing these CFL so hard, it eventually and purposely, lead to the demise of the incandescent light bulb industry, to which GE is, or should I say “was”, a huge player, AND as it happens, the last remaining US manufacturer of these “antiquated” light bulbs.  So evidently, GE saw no benefit what so ever in saving the industry, and felt no sense of obligation to its employees who occupy the hundreds of jobs that goes along in making these bulbs.  Evidently GE has bought in completely, for reasons, known only to themselves (money), into the “Green” agenda, and apparently, not giving a hoot about its employees.  Kinda brings a new meaning to their motto, “GE, We Bring Good Things To Life” doesn’t it?  GE has without a doubt, failed to do the right thing again by America and develop a US manufacturing base for the CFL industry.  Why would GE just throw in the towel and call it quits?  Could it be that they too want China to have the monopoly on this niche of the lighting industry, or is this just part of the larger government scheme to empower China?  Either or, I find it repugnant that GE or the Feds would turn their back on Americans, favoring a Communist nation over the hard working and at this point, needy, American Work Force.  Granted, this “redistribution of wealth” to China was hatched, I believe during the Clinton era, but, for GE to let this happen to hundreds of their loyal, and I am sure, long time employees, especially in these tough economic times (recession) that we’re now in, is unconscionable and beyond the pale of decency AND patriotism.  I’m sure money, and power, is at the root of all of this.  God knows, they must do everything possible to protect and grow the “bottom line’.  Just look for yourself and see how many “bottom lines” GE has.  My God, this company is a giant, and in times past when companies got this big, powerful and influential, they got busted up by the Feds.  This company is so big, us consumers cannot even hurt it by not patronizing them because they have tentacles all throughout our lives.  And unfortunately, we live in an age now where the government is not benevolent.  It has moved squarely into the malevolent category because these huge behemoth companies pour so much money into Congress and where ever else they can, they have the power to not only sway the governments’ actions, but sway the publics’ perception and opinions as well, thus furthering their un-American, anti-republic agenda as the corrupt politicians take their money, and advise.  And especially in this case, since GE owns such a large number of broadcasting companies, they can engage in all manner of media blitz’s, unchecked, and just bombard the viewers with propaganda that favors GE’s agenda and public persona.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, GE is joined at the hip with the corrupt Feds, trying to push the health care agenda, pushing the notion that digitizing/computerize all your health records will “help” you get better health care in the coming bright, new future of the American health care industry, now that we have all been saved by the Socialist Dems imposition of “ObamaCare”, right?  Well, I don’t see it that way.  As far as the “Healthymagination” campaign is concerned, it is nothing more than a money making scheme for GE.  GE will make an unbelievable amount of money because the Feds are modeling the new healthcare computer system after the GE “Healthymagination” system GE already has in place for its employees.  How convenient!!  How do you feel about unknown types of people’s or entities in the form of various government or commercial enterprises having access to all your medical data at the touch of a button without your permission or knowledge?  This will never happen you say?  Bet me!  You will not only have no knowledge of any of this happening because of the back door approvals having been made authorizing the access, you will then be denied a service of some type or be discriminated against in some way, simply because of your medical background and/or history.  And believe me when I say, you will not benefit from this.  The government or some corporation will, not you.  GE stands to make a ton of money from this.

So, to sum up, the demise of this little innocuous little light bulb plant really is a big deal. GE, China, and the Socialist/Liberal/Marxists benefit while some 200 or more Americans are out of a job, AND an indispensable tool, the incandescent light bulb, is gone, most likely forever……….It is such a crying shame and a sad state of affairs we find ourselves in………But hey!!  We have “Healthymagination” and “ObamaCare”.  All is well with the world….right??

I include here, the text of the letter U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the national association of health insurers.  In it there is a direct threat from her to the insurers stating, and I paraphrase, that if the insurance companies tell the truth as to the fact that the premiums are increasing due to the government, they well be punished by being excluded from participating in 2014 Health Insurance Exchanges.  Wow!!  Read it for yourself… We have a member of the Presidents Cabinet threatening a private corporation/s if they tell the truth.  Kathleen Sebelius needs to be brought up before Congress after the November elections to explain her conduct.  This must happen!!

Ms. Karen Ignagni
President and Chief Executive Officer
America’s Health Insurance Plans
601 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
South Building, Suite 500
Washington, DC  20004

Dear Ms. Ignagni:

It has come to my attention that several health insurer carriers are sending letters to their enrollees falsely blaming premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act.  I urge you to inform your members that there will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases.

The Affordable Care Act includes a number of provisions to provide Americans with access to health coverage that will be there when they need it.  These provisions were fully supported by AHIP and its member companies.  Many of the legislation’s key protections take effect for plan or policy years beginning on or after September 23, 2010.  All plans must comply with provisions such as no lifetime limits, no rescissions except in cases of fraud or intentional misrepresentation of material fact, and coverage of most adult children up to age 26.  New plans must comply with additional provisions, such as coverage of preventive services with no cost sharing, access to OB / GYNs without referrals, restrictions on annual limits on coverage, a prohibition on pre-existing condition exclusions of children (which applies to all group health plans), access to out-of-network emergency room services, and a strengthened appeals process.  And health plans that cover early retirees could qualify for reinsurance to sustain that coverage for businesses, workers, and retirees alike.

According to our analysis and those of some industry and academic experts, any potential premium impact from the new consumer protections and increased quality provisions under the Affordable Care Act will be minimal.  We estimate that that the effect will be no more than one to two percent.  This is consistent with estimates from the Urban Institute (1 to 2 percent) and Mercer consultants (2.3 percent) as well as some insurers’ estimates.  Pennsylvania’s Highmark, for example, estimates the effect of the legislation on premiums from 1.14 to 2 percent.  Moreover, the trends in health costs, independent of the legislation, have slowed.  Employers’ premiums for family coverage increased by only 3 percent in 2010 – a significant drop from previous years.

Any premium increases will be moderated by out-of-pocket savings resulting from the law.  These savings include a reduction in the “hidden tax” on insured Americans that subsidizes care for the uninsured.  By making sure insurance covers people who are most at risk, there will be less uncompensated care, and, as a result, the amount of cost shifting to those who have coverage today will be reduced by up to $1 billion in 2013.  By making sure that high-risk individuals have insurance and emphasizing health care that prevents illnesses from becoming serious, long-term health problems, the law will also reduce the cost of avoidable hospitalizations.  Prioritizing prevention without cost sharing could also result in significant savings: from lowering people’s out-of-pocket spending to lowering costs due to conditions like obesity, and to increasing worker productivity – today, increased sickness and lack of coverage security reduce economic output by $260 billion per year.

Given the importance of the new protections and the facts about their impact on costs, I ask for your help in stopping misinformation and scare tactics about the Affordable Care Act.  Moreover, I want AHIP’s members to be put on notice: the Administration, in partnership with states, will not tolerate unjustified rate hikes in the name of consumer protections.

Already, my Department has provided 46 states with resources to strengthen the review and transparency of proposed premiums.  Later this fall, we will issue a regulation that will require state or federal review of all potentially unreasonable rate increases filed by health insurers, with the justification for increases posted publicly for consumers and employers.  We will also keep track of insurers with a record of unjustified rate increases: those plans may be excluded from health insurance Exchanges in 2014.  Simply stated, we will not stand idly by as insurers blame their premium hikes and increased profits on the requirement that they provide consumers with basic protections.

Americans want affordable and reliable health insurance, and it is our job to make it happen.  We worked hard to change the system to help consumers.  It is my hope we can work together to stop misinformation and misleading marketing from the start.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Sebelius

MICHAEL BERRY – WHY DEMOCRATS MUST GO…..

This is a very good comprehensive accounting of why the Dems must go.  Pass this on to all who need to be reminded to vote!

2011 W-2 TAX FORMS–SURPRISE, SURPRISE! YOU WILL PAY TAXES ON YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE PROVIDED BY YOUR EMPLOYER – REMEMBER, THE DEMOCRATS VOTED FOR THIS….

YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY TAXES ON MONEY YOU DID NOT RECEIVE

Should you want to verify this, go to http://www.thomas.gov/, enter “HR 3590” in the search box and look for “CRS Summaries” (near the bottom of the page.) This is what you’ll find.

Title IX Revenue Provisions—Subtitle A:  Revenue Offset

“(Sec. 9002) Requires employers to include in the W-2 form of each employee the aggregate cost of applicable employer-sponsored group health coverage that is excludable from the employee’s gross income (excluding the value of contributions to flexible spending arrangements).”

Starting in 2011—next year—the W-2 tax form sent by your employer will be increased to show the value of whatever health insurance you are provided.

It doesn’t matter if you’re retired. Your gross income WILL go up by the amount of insurance your employer paid for. So you’ll be required to pay taxes on a larger sum of money that you actually received. Take the tax form you just finished for 2009 and see what $15,000.00 or $20,000.00 additional gross income does to your tax debt. That’s what you’ll pay next year. For many it puts you into a much higher bracket.

This is how the government is going to buy insurance for fifteen (15) percent that don’t have insurance and it’s only part of the tax increases, but it’s not really a “tax increase” as such, it a redefinition of your taxable income.

Also, go to Kiplinger’s and read about the thirteen (13) tax changes for 2010 that could affect you. Why am I posting this? The same reason I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book. People have the right to know the truth because an election is coming in November. So vote intelligently, based on your values.

But also adjust your tax withholding, or increase your savings, so that you aren’t surprised and put in a jam when your federal income taxes are due on April 15, 2012.

(UPDATED 080211 And now this….) OBAMA GIVING OUT FREE “SAFELINK” CELL PHONES TO THOSE WHO QUALIFY……GEE, CAN WE SAY “REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH”??

GEE, I WANT A NEW CAR!! WHEN WILL THE GOVERNMENT BUY ME ONE?!?!? I'M WAITING..........

Yup, here it is.  People who “qualify” will get free cell phones AND free minutes and all us tax payers get to pay for it……  Gee, just doesn’t sound right to me.  Where does it say everyone has a right to a phone, let alone a cell phone. I thought that if you wanted to have those types things, you had to pay for them.  So I guess this Dem Congress and this Socialist/Marxist President thinks that you and me must pay for those services for those who cannot (or will not) pay for it.  Here are the qualifications required:

The process to qualify for Lifeline Service depends on the State you live in. In general, you may qualify if…

You already participate in other State or Federal assistance program such as Federal Public Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and Medicaid.

OR

Your total household income is at or below of the poverty guidelines set by your State and/or the Federal Government.

AND

No one in your household currently receives Lifeline Service through another phone carrier.

You have a valid United States Postal Address. In order for us to ship you your free phone you must live at a residence that can receive mail from the US Post Office. Sorry, but P.O. Boxes cannot be accepted.

In addition to meeting the guidelines above you will also be required to provide proof of your participation in an assistance program, or proof of your income level.

(UPDATED 080211 And now this….)

Free cell phones are now a civil right

THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY (AS WE KNOW IT) AND A NEW BEGINNING FOR AMERICA

DEMOCRATS FOUGHT TO KEEP SLAVERY. Click the pic for the story..

As we march towards the November elections, the daily news being reported on the Democrat antics just keeps getting better.  I believe what we are witnessing here is the Democrat party eating their own dead and sacrificing anybody and anything to stay afloat.  Daily, sometimes hourly, we hear of some other huge gaff or other newsworthy event caused by some Democrat opening their moth and inserting their foot all the way up to the kneecap.  At this point, I am really enjoying what I see.  Lets see, lets take score here;   2 leading Dem Reps being charges with ethics violations (by a Dem run ethics committee, by the way), a Speaker of the house who happens to be the worst ever and has no compunction against stumping for her overtly corrupt cohorts, Democrats from both the House and the Senate are afraid to hold any Town Hall Meetings over summer break for fear of the Constituents backlash over the heath care bill being literally shoved down our throats in a manner that is highly unethical and UNDEMOCRATIC (remember, they literally locked the doors so the Republicans could not participate in the crafting of this horrendous and unconstitutional piece of lame legislations, yet the Republicans still tried to have their input.  But for all the GOPs efforts, they were branded by the left as “The party of no”), The Senate leaders own state (Nevada) has one of the, or the highest unemployment rates in the nation and he has the audacity to tell a local LV newspaper that he hope they go out of business (NOTE:  The NRA backs Harry Reid because he has helped build some shooting ranges and promoted the 2nd Amendment, however, this does not set well with the rank and file NRA members like myself.  Harry Reid is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and is no longer worthy of being entrusted with our nations future.  He must go to make room for a true conservative).  Lets see, where was I?  Oh yea, the President totally politicized the gulf oil spill response, The head of DHS says our boarders are more secure now than ever, as FOX news has totally disproved by hidden camera video and testimony from Boarder Patrol Agents demonstrating irrefutably that thousands of illegals are entering the USA via the Mexican/USA border.  The President has admitted (and demonstrated)that he is a Muslim as recently as yesterday in his affirmation of the building of the Mosque at Ground Zero.  The reported underhanded arm-twisting of his “enforcer”, Rahm Emanuel, the questionable and extremist backgrounds of most of not all appointees in all branches.  To be honest, there is too much to mention because almost daily we are assaulted with some other major Democrat transgression on the Constitution, the Citizenry or an Ally of one sort or another.  It is simply unbelievable mind boggling the level of malice that seems to emanates from the Office of the President and the Democrats in Congress.  (Oh, left we forget FLOTUS trip to Spain and the Obama’s “Let them eat cake” attitude towards us “ordinary” folks.

There is a bright side, or a “silver lining” to this situation though.  America has awoke.  In this new age of almost instant communication, networking and ease of organization, we patriots were and are a very quick study.  We saw, and are now experiencing the effects of the Liberals using these tools to great advantage.  Well, we are doing the same, but much better and to a much better and Democratic end.  It is because we Patriots can organize and communicate, we are going to beat them at their own game.  And fortunately, the GOP and other like minded conservatives have been taking notes and keeping score.  Example  https://sickofspending.com/site/ and sites like this.  That is why the rhetoric from the Left has turned so nasty.  They have resorted to race-baiting, name calling, mud slinging and just plain lying simply because that is all they have left.  They have shot themselves in the foot so bad, they cannot even run on their accomplishments because over 70% of Americans are against what they have done to our nation.  They literally haven’t got a leg (or plank) to stand on.  It is so bad, or good, depending on how you want to see it, that the African Americans are even seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  They are beginning to realize the truth about the Democrat Party and its major players. (Al Sharptons, Jesse Jackson types)  They are now becoming aware that it was and IS the Democrat party that had and still wants them to be slaves dating back to civil war times.  It was the GOPers who pushed for their emancipation and freedoms to include the civil rights movement throughout the 50s and 60s.  Stop and think about it.  What is the Democrat message to the African-Americans and the rest of the minorities?  If you sift through the chaff, the message is loud and clear.  You are a victim racism and are being held back by “The man”.  So look to us, your saviors.  We will provide for you and give you sustenance. Provide shelter and educate your children.  We ask nothing in return, just your servitude and loyalty to us, your saviors, the Democratic Party.  (Funny how the Democrat party likes to call themselves “Democratic” when they are anything but…)  They demand your blind obedience so they can use you to push and forward their agenda.  And that agenda does not include a democratic form of government.  Anything but….Does this in fact still not make you slaves to the master?  Which in this case is the Democrat party?  Well huh?  Who are you serving?  Yourself?  I think not….  The GOP fought for the end of slavery and appreciates and understands the importance of everyone’s inclusion and success in the American Dream.  Do the research yourself. You’ll find the truth.

Now let us look at the GOP, The Grand Old Party.  In spite of what the left wants you to believe, the Democrats are all about big business and their money.  The GOP has been given a bad rap on that simply because they promote a pro-business, capitalistic system of governance that sees the importance of each and every word of our founding documents.  The GOP understands that in order for everyone to be free to pursue “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, people must not be burdened by a government that not only makes, but aspires to make everyone dependent on the government in order to exist.  That existence would be one where the government tells you how much money you can make, and live accordingly, rather that live according to your ideals and abilities, making as much or, conversely, as little as you want.  All according to what you want to do, nobody else.  Now granted there are many people out there who cannot work.  The true measure of a society is how it takes care of its needy.  I think we do a pretty good job, but we could do better.  And there are those who are lazy and choose not to work, for one reason or another.  Well, those people need to loose their “free ride” and learn the value of a dollar.  No more welfare for the countless “baby factories” out there.  GO TO WORK!!!

So with all this being said, I expect to get some “hate mail” on this posting.  However, it would behoove all to be articulate, civil, and form a good argument.  Otherwise my point will be well-made by you own liberal comments just as they did on my DOD Police authority posting.  LETS TAKE BACK THE AMERICA OUR FOUNDING FATHERS STARTED.  A REPUBLIC FULL OF PATRIOTS LIKE YOU!!

USS OBAMACARE IS SINKING FAST. COME ON NOVEMBER!!!!

Sounds like all is not well in nirvana for ObamaCare.  Are the Dems ready for Act II of this issue?  I really don’t think so.  Even as stupid and idealistic the Dems are, they are starting to see the light.  With the impending mid-term elections looming on the horizon, the more middle of the road Dems are starting to jump overboard like rats deserting a sinking ship.  It is my opinion that it doesn’t matter if they “get it” now or not.  They “Rahmed” this crap down our throats IN SPITE of our loud and clear DISSENTING voice.  Click the pic for the story.  They all gotta go……
