155 million people preyed upon by Democrats’ Medicare for All

Millions — 155 million people  — will lose their private medical insurance which they get via employers should Democrats pass Medicare for All.
Watch out! Wise up!
According to a new telephone poll that the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation published Tuesday morning, many of the  voters contacted  seem to think that Medicare for All would do things it wouldn’t ― or, more precisely, that it wouldn’t do things it would….

Two-thirds of Democratic voters think that people with employer coverage could hold on to their policies under Medicare for All, according to the Kaiser study, which used a nationally representative sample of more than 1,200 adults.

In reality, both the Sanders proposal and its House counterpart, from Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), would prohibit the sale of private insurance that is “duplicative” of what the new government plan would offer.

That would effectively wipe out existing employer policies. Private insurers could still offer supplemental plans, but only to pay for extras, like cosmetic surgery and premium hospital rooms, that the government plan didn’t cover.

Some general info:  Of those with insurance, most (67.2 percent) have private coverage. More than half of the population—56 percent—has employer-sponsored coverage, followed by Medicaid (19.3 percent), Medicare (17.2 percent), individual market coverage (16 percent), and military coverage (4.8 percent).

Obama’s Trojan horse gift to America’s poor … opiods?


Obama’s Trojan horse gift to America’s poor: opiods?

Obama’s Trojan horse gift to America’s poor:  opiods?

We’ve   recently learned from the Politico  that Obama’s Department of Justice stalled Hezbollah investigation to secure his  Nuclear Deal with Iran.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called for an investigation into the Politico story.

 The Wall Street Journal reports that   ObamaCare, by providing  easy access to prescription opiods  for all adults  (via huge expansion of Medicaid) has an unforeseen result:  the lowering of the life expectancy for he average American for the last two years in a row.

More of America’s poorest are dying of drug overdoses.  More people are addicted to opiods.

Comment by Aptos Psychologist:  Watch out every time you fill an opiod prescription. Be careful.  Limit, reduce the use and get off those addictive  medications.   What other ways can you deal  effectively with pain?      written by  psychologist Cameron Jackson, Ph.D.

Freedom to choose! Alaska supports repeal of Individual Mandate says Sen, Murkowski

Freedom to choose!  Alaska’s Sen. Murkowski Says She Supports Repealing Obamacare Individual Mandate

Senate Republican tax bill includes provision to repeal mandate

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R., Ala.) wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday that she supports Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare’s individual mandate.

“I have always supported the freedom to choose. I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy in order to avoid being taxed,” Murkowski wrote in her piece for the Daily News-Miner, an Alaska newspaper. “That is the fundamental reason why I opposed the Affordable Care Act from its inception and also why I cosponsored a bill to repeal the individual mandate tax penalty starting as early as 2013. And that is why I support the repeal of that tax today.”

Murkowski’s announcement comes as a welcome surprise to Senate Republicans, whose current tax reform bill repeals the individual mandate, which forces most Americans who do not have health insurance to pay a fine. Earlier this year, Murkowski was one of three Republican senators who did not vote for the Senate GOP’s so-called “skinny” repeal of Obamacare.


Freedom NOW from ObamaCare!

Freedom NOW  from ObamaCare!

Americans are not stupid. They can  make informed choices.

Let people  choose their doctors and their  health plans.

What to do?  Legalize competition across state lines.  That will drive premium  costs down.

Give  ObamaCare  no money via the  Exchanges.  Let people opt out totally.  Let small businesses create their own collectives. Encourage Health Savings Accounts with families making the decisions how to spend their health dollars.

Phil Gramm, Republicans, Stand up for Health Freedom  WSJ, Oct. 19, 2017

“President Trump has now created another such opening for compromise by announcing he will end ObamaCare’s cost-sharing payments to insurers. Without a constant injection of additional money, ObamaCare premiums will spiral upward, and the number of Americans who benefit from the program will continue to fall.

But the initial bipartisan bill, offered by Sens. Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D., Wash.), is more of a capitulation than compromise. It resuscitates ObamaCare but hardly provides a fig leaf for Americans who want their health-care freedom back—the very people who elected Republicans.

“Any agreement to restore funding for cost-sharing payments should be tied to provisions allowing families to opt out of ObamaCare and buy coverage that meets their individual needs. The compromise should also grant insurers the right to sell such plans independent of ObamaCare’s rules and its rigged risk pool.

“A money-for-freedom compromise would at last provide an opportunity to debate health-care freedom, something the public was denied by the great ObamaCare lie. If Democrats refuse to allow ObamaCare’s losers to escape in return for funding for the program’s beneficiaries, it will be Democrats who let the program collapse. Throughout the debate they will be forced to argue against the very health-care freedom they falsely promised when they adopted ObamaCare.”

Obama: which Obama words will Americans long remember?

if-you-like-your-planRemembering Obama — what words will Americans remember best? Three are listed below:

Some notable famous words Obama spoke: 1)  “red line”,  2) “jayvee team” and 3)  “if you like your plan you can keep it”.

If you like your plan:  The first votes for ObamaCare repeal happened Jan. 12, 2016.  The Senate passed 51-48 a budget resolution that allows a simple majority to roll back much of ObamaCare. And on Friday the House followed voting 227 to 198 for the budget resolution.  So —  in 2017 Americans will get to choose their medical care again.  Hopefully.

Red line:  Obama’s  empty threat, the “red line” over use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, gave a green light to Russia to increase its support of Assad, gaining a precious naval base in the Mediterranean and thereby altering the balance of power in Middle East waters.  And unleashed even more war on Syrians.

Jay vee team:  Remember  reference to ISIS as the jay ve team?  Not worthy of having to really deal with them?  Obama’s comment was way off mark:


You can thank Obama for Trump’s huge win?

obama-2016Yes, thank Obama for Trump’s win.  Because Obama put his “achievements” on the line.

Obama’s message to voters:  vote for Hilary  and save what I’ve done, especially   “legacy” of ObamaCare 

Voters did not vote to save ObamaCare his signature piece of legislation.  Voters did not vote to continue his Executive Orders concerning immigration and the lack of enforcement of immigration.

People were labeled ‘racist’ when  publicly critical of Obama’s policies.

Well,, voters in the privacy of the voting booth have said what they think of Obama’s policies.  Voters have rejected Obama’s policies.



$800 BILLION jobs Stimulus wasted & ObamaCare harms Americans

shovel-ready-with-obama-and-shovelThe $800 BILLION Stimulus  money for ‘shovel ready’ jobs resulted in zero jobs.

Obama admitted that several years later.  There were no ‘shovel ready’ jobs that came from the $800 BILLION Obama spent. What a waste.

With all the economic woes of Obama’s first years in office Obama forgot jobs and instead he focused on ObamaCare.

And what came out  of ObamaCare?obama-care-harms-americans

Employers now hire more part time employees. People did not keep their doctors.  Premiums went up drastically — not down as promised.  Americans oppose ObamaCare — what Obama focused on during his first years in office.

So — by  forgetting about ‘shovel ready’ jobs and wasting 800 BILLION dollars and, instead,  focusing on ObamaCare which harms Americans  —  did Obama shoot himself in his foot?  Americans went to the ballot box and overwhelmingly rejected Obama’s policies.


Tomorrow we know: ObamaCare? Illegal immigrants? “Deplorables”?


Freedom or
What direction for America?

Tomorrow —  when we wake up  — Americans  will know what direction the country will take:  ObamaCare, illegal immigration,  “Deplorables”,  likely  control of the  Supreme Court.

Can “outsider” such as Trump  win?  Or  will  The Clinton Foundation and  “elete”  of Washington and New York — who spectacularly don’t know middle america — continue to rule?

Pray that Americans make the right choices — for freedom, justice and the same rule of law for all persons.

About 70% of Americans think the country is going in the wrong direction.  Well, it’s been Obama and Hilary as Secretary of State guiding how this country has been going.  Will Americans vote for a new direction?

Early polling  suggests that Americans want  to elect a “strong leader” .  That sounds like Trump as Hilary’s leadership reminds people of Bengazi and four dead Americans and that America is involved in 5 undeclared wars right now.

If Hilary wins, then more  costly  ObamaCare comes  our way.  If  Trump, then ObamaCare   can  be — likely will be —  thrown out.

If Trump wins, illegal immigration  can be controlled.  A recent poll shows that Hispanics overwhelmingly want illegals sent home.

What about the “Deplorables” which Hilary says make up half of Trump’s support.    Hilary may express regret about her remarks, but  how  will Hilary’s “Deplorables” vote?

Hispanics and immigration:  Per a poll released today,  Hispanics want laws enforced and illegals sent home.  So  — as one might surmise, Hispanics ‘get it’ that opening the flood gate to illegals hurts  plenty of USA born people looking for minimum wage jobs.

Blacks vote as a bloc for Obama/ Hilary?   Will the young Blacks do the bidding of Michelle Obama who tells them “Just vote Democrat.”  One young Black woman interviewed said that she was not staying on the Plantation as Michelle Obama tells her.  This young black woman refuses to vote Democrat  just because Michelle Obama tells her to.

Tomorrow — when we wake up and read the papers and turn on the news — then we will know what direction America will go.  Let’s pray that freedom and liberty and one rule of law applies to all persons.




You can keep your doctor – not

You can keep your doctor — remember Obama said?

President Barack Obama on Thursday decried America’s “wild, wild west” media environment for allowing conspiracy theorists a broad platform and destroying a common basis for debate.

Recalling past days when three television channels delivered fact-based news that most people trusted, Obama said democracy require citizens to be able to sift through lies and distortions.

“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to,” Obama said at an innovation conference in Pittsburgh.

“There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world,” Obama added.



Firenze Sage:  The biggest liar yet in the presidency lectures again. “I am truth” saeth he. You can keep your health plan too.

“What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump asks Black voters that question. Ask it for yourself.

Ask for yourself,  What do you have to lose — if you vote  Republican?

charter schools provide choice

What about good schools for your children?  The civil rights issue of today is access to good schools. Public charter schools and private schools provide choice for parents.  Obama and the Democrats oppose charter schools — because the Democrats  support the teacher’s unions.


What about your  safety?  Are you safer? If you live in a large city like Chicago (where Obama will have his Library) you are 17 times more likely to be murdered if you are Black (there’s about an equal percent of whites and blacks in Chicago).  What about the young woman killed in San Francisco by an illegal who was deported five times.

After the last 8 years with   a Democrat as President, are our borders safer,  are there fewer  illegals, is there less danger of drugs?

Is the world safer?  Did Obama’s/Hilary’s foreign policies make the world safer?  Less terror?  The world is far less safe.    http://www.thejournal.ie/terrorism-statistics-worldwide-1796337-Dec2014/
