Nearly 4 million Americans will have to pay a penalty if they fail to get health insurance when that element of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law kicks in, according to congressional projections released Thursday. The penalties will average a little more than $1,000 apiece in 2016, the Congressional Budget Office said in a report. The vast majority of people paying the fine will be middle class, which would […]
Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters nationwide believe repeal of the recently passed health care law will be good for the economy. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 33% believe repeal will be bad for the economy. Twelve percent (12%) say it will have no impact, and eight percent (8%) are not sure. From the moment it was passed, a majority of voters around the country have wanted […]
When Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi said we need to pass the bill to see whats in it, It may not have been congressional mispeak. A few fact checkers are finding some interesting things about the Universal health care bill. One fact is it might not be, ‘universal’ at all.
One of the major problems with President Obama’s Health Care reform is that it is NOT universal. Dozens of top congressional leaders and staffers will be exempt or can opt-out of the Health care Reform requirements you and I will have to enroll in. If the general public chooses not to carry health insurance, they will be required to pay a Fine or have their tax refunds attached. Not so if you are amoung the elite in Congress. One wonders if equal protection under the law means anything to Congressman these days.
In the lead up to the final health care vote, the White House and its liberal allies were trying to make the argument that the reason why the legislation hadn’t been polling better was that Americans were sick of ugly process stories. Once a bill passed, they argued, and those sausage-making stories were supplanted by triumphant stories about this historic achievement that would deliver real benefits, those numbers would turn […]
The IRS says that it has no problem attaching Tax refunds for those who refuse to purchase health insurance. A new argument has arisen about the individual mandate after the passage of Obamacare. Some have insisted that the mandate penalty provision got rewritten quietly before passage to keep the IRS from penalizing taxpayers — or more accurately, to keep the IRS from prosecuting taxpayers who refuse to pay the penalties […]
No Dirty deals on Health Care? Dems really do think constituents are stupid. From Gateway Pundit Last night, I attended and took on Debbie Wasserman Schultz at her SEIU thug controlled townhall. She played a propaganda film with lying Dem talking points and filled the place early with 3/4 of the people to intimidate. She so-called meeting was tightly controlled. Outside there were 100’s of protesters….and thugs shoving tea party […]
Now we have Rep. Phil Hare admitting that when it comes to health care “reform,” he doesn’t “worry about the Constitution”:
Congressman Stupak is waiting on an executive order to solve his abortion language issues. Some news services are reporting his is not a yes vote, but a source close to him says until the language is made pubic and he can review item his vote remains a No along with seven others. Bart Stupak has agreed to language in an executive order that would satisfy his block. He had called […]
So here’s where we stand on the votes, from my best attempt at a count. There are 16 undecided votes still out there, all of them Democrats. I’ve listed them below. It looks like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is at 210 and needs six out of 16 votes to get to 216. Here are her targets. The dozen previous yes votes are all pro-lifers. PREVIOUS NO VOTES BRIAN BAIRD (WA), […]
