John Boehner cannot be trusted when it comes to the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens. We know that he supports amnesty–which is why he hired as an adviser the person who helped John McCain push his amnesty bill–but has promised not to bring amnesty up for a vote unless a majority of House Republicans support the measure. This presents John Boehner with a problem, he wants amnesty but he does not want to upset conservative voters before the election because he needs them in order to hold onto his power.
Harry Reid recently said that John Boehner will cave on amnesty and for once I have to agree with the Senate Majority Leader. So how does John Boehner plan to rectify his personal opinion with the will of the conservative voters?
Obamacare: The insurance companies will be allowed to estimate how much the Federal government owes them in payments because the payment mechanism hasn’t been set up
Fox News ran an Obamacare story last night and in the banner during this story was this: “New Obamacare Bombshell. No System yet for Exchange Payment.” This of course is not really breaking news for America’s Watchtower has been writing about this issue for a few weeks now, but let that go.
There was a new bombshell revelation in this report however and that is that the Obama regime intends to cope with this glitch by letting the insurance companies GUESS how much the Obama regime owes them in subsidies. The Obama regime will pay the insurance companies whatever amount they ask for and then will figure out sometime in the future what the insurance companies should have been paid and then make the payments correct.
This is going to be difficult, but let us pretend for a moment that you are one of the handful of people who were able to successfully enroll in Obamacare using the dysfunctional healthcare website. Naturally you would think that you were out of the woods because you would be in compliance with the law, but you would be wrong.
It turns out, according to this story, that 1/3 those who have “successfully” enrolled in Obamacare still face an uphill battle for many problems still exist once you are “enrolled.”
Meet Marilinda Garcia: She is running for the Congress in New Hampshire, met with hate-filled attack from the Democrats
Say hello to Marilinda Garcia: She is a conservative Republican who has served four terms as a New Hampshire State Representative and she is currently running for the United States House in the second congressional district in New Hampshire. She also happens to be part Hispanic. If she wins the GOP primary she will face off against uber-liberal moonbat Anne Kuster.
Immediately upon her announcement she was attacked by the Democrats in the state in the most vile of manners. Here is what New Hampshire Democratic Rep. Peter Sullivan had to Tweet about Marilinda Garcia:
She’s Al Baldassaro (sic) in stiletto heels, a lightweight and O’Brien clone.”
“Bill O’Brien + Kim Kardashian = Marilinda Garcia”
“She is a right-wing, homophobic, anti-worker shill for the Koch Brothers
He then went on to apologize on Twitter…..to Kim Kardashian for comparing her to a ”right wing extremist.”
She met this attack with style and grace saying, “to me, the most unfortunate byproducts of such personal attacks, negativity and vitriol are that they discourage good people from getting involved in politics, cause citizens to be disgusted at the political process, and tarnish the reputations of all elected officials just by virtue of association.”
Here we have a young minority woman, who has been in public service for years attacked simply because she is a conservative and we all know that both minorities and women are supposed to be liberal Democrats. But because she is not falling in line with what Democrat feel she should be she is fair game for such attacks despite her minority and gender status.
Tell me again about how the Democrats care so much about minorities. Tell me again how much the Democrats care about women. Tell me again how Democrats are all-caring, all-inclusive, and tolerant to various viewpoints. Tell me again about how the Republicans hate minorities. Tell me again how the Republicans are the ones who are waging a war on women.
Matt, over at Conservative Hideout, has more on this story.
The Obama regime is now claiming that the healthcare website relaunch is a success because 50,000 people can now use the website at the same time, but as small as that number is it has already been proven to be a lie.
But in addition to the fact that the healthcare website cannot handle a large volume of traffic there are other, more major, concerns which have still not been addressed. One major problem is the fact that there is no mechanism for payment, meaning those few who did manage to enroll in Obamacare and buy a plan will not have it for long once they do not make the required payment, and the other is the security problems with the website.
Now, according to one cyber-security expert, we are learning that no security was built into the website in the first place.
I do not know if this story is true, but if it is it could possibly signal the death of Obamacare. According to the story the healthcare law only gives the Federal government the authority to penalize people for not purchasing healthcare insurance if the state in which they reside has set up a state exchange.
According to the letter of the law, the government can only reward subsidies and levy penalties in states that have created Obamacare state exchanges
While the president’s health law is vast and extraordinarily complex, it is in one respect very simple,” Pruitt wrote in a Sunday Wall Street Journal op-ed. “Subsidies are only to be made available, and tax penalties for not signing up for health insurance are only to be assessed, in states that create their own health-care exchange.”
To date only 16 states (and Washington DC) have set up their own exchanges, the other states are either using the Federal exchange or have a state-federal partnership exchange set up. This means that revenues would fall about $1 trillion short of projections.
