WMD Scattershot Blasts for November 7, 2013

Obamacare by Morning...
Libtards on twitter and facebook show they can't take a joke...CMA Awards Obamacare spoof hits nail on the head...or hemorrhoids in the rear...

Facts Show White House Efforts to Blame Insurance Cos for Cancellations are Lies
From the WaPo:
We’ve noted before the tight regulations that the Department of Health and Human Services wrote while implementing the law, which affected “grandfathered plans,” those obtained before the law was signed on March 23, 2010.  That’s what Carney is referring to when he claims that insurance companies are taking away benefits — though that is just one of a myriad of provisions that could affect a plan’s grandfathered status.
But how many people actually would have kept their individual plans that long in the first place? HHS, when it drafted the interim rules, estimated that between 40 and 67 percent of policies in the individual market are in effect for less than one year. “These estimates assume that the policies that terminate are replaced by new individual policies, and that these new policies are not, by definition, grandfathered,” the rules noted. (See page 34553.)
That’s a large percentage of the plans — but it’s actually bigger than that, given the effective date. We dug into the key research that prompted this estimate, a study titled “Patterns Of Individual Health Insurance Coverage, 1996–2000.” The study noted that, for most people, buying individual insurance is a temporary condition:
“Roughly two-thirds of spells began or ended with employer-sponsored coverage. Eighty-five percent of those with such coverage before a spell of individual coverage returned to an employer-sponsored plan. Thus, more than half of all individual-coverage spells (58 percent) bridged periods of employer-based insurance.”
The study included an interesting chart, based on the experiences of more than 6,000 people, that showed how long a person had a “spell” of individual coverage. The median spell length was only 8 months. Here are the key points:
Less than 6 months:    48.2 percent
6-12 months:               16.3 percent
13-18 months:             13.7 percent
19-24 months:               4.8 percent
More than 24 months:   17  percent
Of course, the Affordable Care Act was enacted more than 44 months ago. Using the data available in the chart, we roughly calculated the Gamma distribution curve beyond 44 months. Under our model, only 4.8 percent keep the policy longer than 44 months — and that is likely an overestimate.
Translated, that means about 95 percent of people now getting cancellation notices likely purchased their plan after the effective date of the law.

Pot Meet Kettle, Obama Edition
Obama sends warning to GOP governors to stop playing politics with healthcare.  Funny, didn't he do that first?  Just sayin.

CBS, of All People, Says Obama Had Years of Warnings About Failures of Obamacare
Yeah,CBS, it is called the right wing blogosphere.....

Obamacare Will Be Judged Too Big Too Fail, Bailout of Single Payer to Come....
From the American Spectator:
Think back to the fall of 2008. Congress was asked to pass a $700 billion taxpayer bailout for Wall Street. We were told it had to be passed, or else the economy would collapse, perhaps into another Great Depression.
House conservatives voted it down. The stock market fell hundreds of points in response. In the ensuing panic, Congress went along and passed the bailout.
That bailout, and the insane, nearly $1 trillion “stimulus” bill passed just a few months later as Obama’s first act, gave birth to the Tea Party revolution that gave Republicans a 63-seat landslide in the House in the 2010 elections. Voters supported that to stop the run on taxpayer funds.
Next on the horizon is an Obamacare “death spiral” for the private health insurance industry. Taxpayers will now be told a new bailout of hundreds of billions for the private health insurers must be passed, or else private health insurance will go out of business under Obamacare. That would leave the government in complete control of American health care, especially as he who pays the piper calls the tune.
It is called “single payer” by advocates of government-run health care. In plain English, “single payer” means “government monopoly” over health care, more commonly known as “socialized medicine.” That means the government decides who gets what health care, or ultimately, who lives and who dies. For those who think the government is God, such health care socialism is long overdue.
Meaning — spiraling decline in the quality of American health care, the end of investment in new, breakthrough medicine, Sarah Palin’s death panels.

I am shocked, SHOCKED! to find Eric Cantor employing RINOs!  (sarcasm).  Breitbart has the story here

Krispy Kreme Christie Joins John Kasich Obamacare Surrender Club
Krispy Kreme Christie, governor of New Jersey and Obama's secret lover, became the latest Surrender Republican Governor to rapidly expand Medicaid in the Obamacare scheme.  So, this is what victory 2016 looks like?  Hardly.  Maybe next, like John Kasich, Krispy Kreme will say God told him to do it.....

Attention Ohio General Assembly, and especiall the Senate:  Even Kids Know Common Core is Rotten....
From EAGnews:
Emily Anderson, a ninth-grader at Owasso Mid-High School, has always been near the top of her class when it comes to academics. She was in enrolled in the TACK program for gifted and talented students throughout middle school and is currently taking Pre-AP classes.
But Anderson has some concerns with the future of her education after seeing evidence of the implementation of Common Core standards in her classrooms.
“I know I’m not stupid. I’m not dumb. I just know that whatever is going on isn’t working with the way that I learn,” Anderson said.

...We Will Give You the New Mexico Treatment....
Another sad story questions just how far our police are going nowadays. To add insult to injury, the urgent care billed the man for the "treatment" to the tune of in excess of $6000.  Of course, we come to find out now that this drug dog has had numerous false alerts in the past.  And, ANOTHER person has come out after the story linked to above came out.  This person received the same "treatment" by local police in New Mexico.  And supposedly, the same dog was used.  Time to put Rover out to stud, people. 

Speaking of Dog Doo, Obama Steps in It Again...LIAR LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE!
From Fox News:
Millions of health insurance plans have been cancelled after ObamaCare went into effect, and President Obama backed away Monday from his previous oft-repeated statement that "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
But he may want to glance at his own website,, which still states: "For Americans with insurance coverage who like what they have, they can keep it. Nothing in this act or anywhere in the bill forces anyone to change the insurance they have, period."

That appears in a section of the website labeled "health reform details." The exact same language also appears in the Department of Health and Human Services' online description of the law.

But that web description is very different from what Obama said Monday to top backers of Organizing for Action, his permanent campaign arm.
"What we said was, 'You could keep it [your plan] if it hasn't changed since the law was passed,'" Obama said.

Obama Takes Care of Union Buddies Quietly with More Waivers....
Remember how we thought Hoffa and the boys were coming around now that they saw that they would be screwed on insurance?  Well, Obama is fixing that.  How?  By unconstitutionally changing the ACA, aka Obamacare, just as he has been doing since the monstrosity was passed.
