Spinning ObamaCare: Two Million Jobs Lost = “Freedom”

Spinning ObamaCare: Two Million Jobs Lost = “Freedom”

“We got a report today about ObamaCare that was both surprising and widely misunderstood. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said about two million Americans are likely to pass up full-time jobs because of the President’s health insurance program. Those aren’t necessarily jobs being lost. They’re also workers choosing to work less.”
— Anchor Scott Pelley on the CBS Evening News, February 4.

“Is this — I’m sure you’re happy to have Democrats on the defensive here. But why shouldn’t this be seen as freedom for folks who didn’t have it before?”
— Moderator David Gregory to Ohio Senator Rob Portman on Meet the Press, February 9.

There is more sheer leftist stupidity on display..

GOA: Harry Reid Buys Anti-gun Votes from his “Secret Room”

Harry Reid Buys Anti-gun Votes from his
“Secret Room”

This battle is ObamaCare II 

“The most annoying thing is the phone calls.” – a Senior Senate Staffer commenting on the effectiveness of thousands of phone calls pouring into their offices (June 21, 2013)
URGENT ACTION:  A key vote in the Senate will be occurring later today or tomorrow morning.  Please call your Senators at 202-224-3121 to register your opinion, and if you live in a state with two anti-gun Senators, then use the contact list below to call Senators who are on the fence. Urge your pro-gun friends and family to do the same.
Making them “An offer they can’t refuse.”
Thursday night last week was like a scene from the Godfather.

One by one, senators shuffled into Harry Reid’s “secret room” in the Capitol, and each one (figuratively) kissed his ring and (again, figuratively) received his payment from Reid’s stack of bills.

And, by the end of the night, Reid had presumably bought enough votes to pass his anti-gun immigration amnesty bill.

Things haven’t changed a bit from ObamaCare.  Same secret room.  Same procession of supplicants.  Same massive secret bill, revealed at the very same moment Reid filed his motion to cut off debate.  Same morally challenged senators who were more than willing to have their votes bought.

Either later today or tomorrow morning, the Senate will vote on whether to cut off all debate on the massive amendment which didn’t exist until Friday morning.

There are two things to remember:  The liberal (and demonstrably partisan) Congressional Budget Office looked at the long fences, copious border agents, and Orwellian E-Verify in the base bill — and decided it would have little impact on illegal immigration, reducing it by only 25%.  This, in exchange for 8,000,000 new, largely anti-gun voters.

If Hoeven, Corker, and Schumer claim that their “super-secret probation” amendment (fences, agents, e-verify) will have any more of an impact, let’s get a CBO estimate of that.

Second, the one thing Schumer has consistently refused to do is to condition his 8,000,000 new Democratic voters on the statistically demonstrable success of border security.  What does that tell you?

It says this bill is more about turning this country blue than it is about securing the border.

ACTION:  Call your Senators at 202-224-3121, especially if they are listed below.  Tell them to vote against cloture on Harry Reid’s “Godfather amendment.”
NOTE:  For those of you who live in California, New York (and other states with two anti-gun Senators), you could use this opportunity to call some of the Senators on the Target List below.

—– Talking Points for Senate Offices —–
1. Vote no on the Hoeven amendment.  Vote against cloture on the Hoeven amendment.
2. Even the liberal (and very partisan) Congressional Budget Office said that the underlying amnesty bill would have little impact on illegal immigration, reducing it by only 25%.  This would be true — even after building long fences, adding more border agents, and establishing an Orwellian E-Verify system for workers.
3. Given that all the Hoeven amendment would do is fund more of the same agents, fences, and e-verify that CBO just said wouldn’t stop illegal immigration, you would be foolish to pass it without getting a new CBO estimate.
4. The one thing that Senator Chuck Schumer has consistently refused to do is to condition his 8,000,000 new (mostly anti-gun) voters on the proposition that the border will first be secured in a statistically demonstrable manner.
5.  According to Breitbart, for all of the tens of billions of dollars of (non-offset) money Hoeven spends, it proceeds to newly make it lawful for illegal immigrants to PROSPECTIVELY overstay their visas and nevertheless get green cards under Gang of Eight amnesty provisions.  Hence, it rewards illegals who PROSPECTIVELY violate our immigration laws, making it worse than the Gang of Eight draft.
6.  Also according to Breitbart, Hoeven now contains a laundry-list of non-germane Cornhusker Kickback-style giveaways — intended to buy votes in exactly the same way Reid did on ObamaCare.  Hence, Hoeven has correctly been billed as ObamaCare 2.0.
7.  Please vote against cloture on the Hoeven amendment!

Military Pay
Please take the time to read!

CINDY WILLIAMS was appointed by Obama as an Assistant Director for NATIONAL SECURITY in the Congressional Budget Office…..

This is an Airman’s response to Cindy Williams‘ editorial piece in the Washington Post about MILITARY PAY, it should be printed in all newspapers across America .

Cindy William wrote a piece for the Washington Times denouncing the pay raise(s) coming service members’ way this year citing that she stated a 13% wage increase was more than they deserve.

A young airman from HillAFB responds to her article below. He ought to get a bonus for this.

“Ms Williams:

I just had the pleasure of reading your column, “Our GI’s earn enough” and I am a bit confused. Frankly, I’m wondering where this vaunted overpayment is going, because as far as I can tell, it disappears every month between DFAS (The Defense Finance and Accounting Service) and my bank account. Checking my latest earnings statement I see that I make $1,117.80 before taxes per month. After taxes, I take home $874.20. When I run that through the calculator, I come up with an annual salary of $13,413.60 before taxes, and $10,490.40 after.

I work in the Air Force Network Control Center where I am part of the team responsible for a 5,000 host computer network. I am involved with infrastructure segments, specifically with Cisco Systems equipment. A quick check under jobs for “Network Technicians” in the Washington , D.C. area reveals a position in my career field, requiring three years experience in my job. Amazingly, this job does NOT pay $13,413.60 a year. No, this job is being offered at $70,000 to $80,000 per annum………… I’m sure you can draw the obvious conclusions.

Given the tenor of your column, I would assume that you NEVER had the pleasure of serving your country in her armed forces.

Before you take it upon yourself to once more castigate congressional and DOD leadership for attempting to get the families in the military’s lowest pay brackets off of WIC and food stamps, I suggest that you join a group of deploying soldiers headed for AFGHANISTAN ; I leave the choice of service branch up to you. Whatever choice you make though, opt for the SIX month rotation: it will guarantee you the longest possible time away from your family and friends, thus giving you full “deployment experience.”

As your group prepares to board the plane, make sure to note the spouses and children who are saying good-bye to their loved ones. Also take care to note that several families are still unsure of how they’ll be able to make ends meet while the primary breadwinner is gone. Obviously they’ve been squandering the “vast” piles of cash the government has been giving them.

Try to deploy over a major holiday; Christmas and Thanksgiving are perennial favorites.. And when you’re actually over there, sitting in a foxhole, shivering against the cold desert night, and the flight sergeant tells you that there aren’t enough people on shift to relieve you for chow, remember this: trade whatever MRE’s (meal-ready-to-eat) you manage to get for the tuna noodle casserole or cheese tortellini, and add Tabasco to everything. This gives some flavor.

Talk to your loved ones as often as you are permitted; it won’t be nearly long enough or often enough, but take what you can get and be thankful for it. You may have picked up on the fact that I disagree with most of the points you present in your open piece.

But, tomorrow from KABUL , I will defend to the death your right to say it.

You see, I am an American fighting man, a guarantor of your First Amendment right and every other right you cherish…On a daily basis, my brother and sister soldiers worldwide ensure that you and people like you can thumb your collective noses at us, all on a salary that is nothing short of pitiful and under conditions that would make most people cringe. We hemorrhage our best and brightest into the private sector because we can’t offer the stability and pay of civilian companies.

And you, Ms.. Williams, have the gall to say that we make more than we deserve?”
A1C Michael Bragg, Hill AFB AFNCC
IF YOU AGREE, PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT OF THE AMERICAN FIGHTING MEN AND WOMEN.
If you get this more than once, feel honored that you know more than one person
who supports our military and appreciates what they do.

22 Signs That Barack Obama Is Transforming America Into A Larger Version Of North Korea

#1 Obama has appointed numerous socialists and communists to important positions in his administration.  The following are just a few examples that were highlighted in a recent article by John Perazzo

  • Obama named Van Jones, a longtime revolutionary communist who famously declared that “we [are] gonna change the whole [economic] system,” as his “green jobs czar” in 2009;

  • he appointed Carol Browner, a former “commissioner” of the Socialist International, as his “environment czar”;

  • he appointed John Holdren, who not only views capitalism as a system that is inherently destructive of the environment, but strongly favors the redistribution of wealth, both within the U.S. and across international borders, as his “science czar”;

  • he named Hilda Solis, a former officer of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the socialist wing of the House of Representatives), as his labor secretary;

  • and he chose Anita Dunn, a woman who has cited Mao Zedong as one of her “favorite political philosophers,” to serve as White House communications director.

Affordable Care Act is going to eff you..

Despite its newspeak name, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will neither make healthcare more affordable nor protect patients. Make no mistake about it … government medicine will serve a government agenda. The Congressional Budget Office has already published the alarming numbers showing how health care costs will skyrocket under this legislation. But what’s worse is that Obamacare will do nothing to protect you as a patient.

It’s right there in black and white, in Section 1311(h). You know, one of those sections Nancy Pelosi warned us about when she said we’d have to “pass it to know what’s in it.” Section 1311(h) empowers a single bureaucrat with no medical training – the Secretary of Health and Human Services – to “standardize” the services your doctors can and cannot offer you. The real goal of this stealth clause? To reduce health care consumption, period.

This means that even if you’re covered by a private insurer, and even if the treatment your doctor is proposing is perfectly legal, the government can still tell your doctor he’s not allowed to give you that particular treatment. And if your doctor decides to do so anyway, the government can shut down the practice entirely.

With legislation like this, it’s easy to see why now more than ever before, it’s vital to make every effort to be as self-reliant as possible when it comes to your health.

New York Times Displays Its Gun Fear on Sunday’s Front Page

Between the multiple editorials calling for stricter gun laws and the denunciations of the NRA by its reporters, it’s safe to say the urban liberals at the New York Times lack a cultural affinity for guns. Using the Sandy Hook massacre as an excuse, the paper treated as vital and disturbing Sunday front-page news something that’s been going on for decades: The gun industry encouraging youth to engage in recreational shooting, hunting, and firearms training.

Trust them they say..

BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT — The sobering footage was uploaded on YouTube by an anonymous user. It is unclear who filmed it.

In the video, which goes in and out of focus, the pop and sizzle of the electric stun gun can be heard before someone shouts ‘nice shot’ from off camera as the man falls to the ground.

Within seconds, two officers stand over the motionless man and begin kicking and stomping on him as he lay on the grass. A third officer drives up in a police cruiser with the sirens blaring and joins in the attack.

What’s in the fiscal cliff?

What’s in the fiscal cliff?

AMT patch

Expired already for 2012. Income exempt from the Alternative Minimum Tax in 2012 — for which taxpayers will file returns next year — falls to $33,750 for individuals and $45,000 for married couples. That’s down from $50,600 and $78,750, respectively, if the exemption amounts had been adjusted for inflation.

As a result more than 30 million people will be hit by the so-called “wealth” tax, up from 4 million to date.

Well now I never considered myself wealthy by any means. Hell paycheck to paycheck most weeks..And now?
