Barack Obama suggested that any decision by the US Supreme Court to overturn his landmark healthcare law would send the country “backwards” and that Americans did not want to “re-fight” the battle over healthcare.
I do. Since they pulled every dirty trick known and unknown the last time to by-hook-or-by-crook to cram it down our throats.
Mind you they will lie, cheat, threatening, intimidate and class warfare it to death again anyhow and with even more zealotry than last time.
It’s the Holy Grail. Being able to control everyone and everything completely. How can authoritarian fascists like the Left pass that up? They can’t.
“The American people fight for what’s right. And the American people understand that we’re not going to make progress by going backwards. We need to go forward,” he said.
Translation: “The American Left fights dirty for what’s THEY WANT. And the American people have to understand that we’re not going to go away or go backwards by giving in to what you want. We need to go forward and control everyone and everything,” he said.
So I will appoint even more liberal justice to the Supreme Court given the chance so this kind of thing doesn’t happen anymore and we get what we want when we want it and you can’t do anything about because the Federal Government reigns supreme.
Tomorrow, the Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling on Obamacare–and, in particular, the individual mandate, which requires individuals to purchase health insurance whether they want it or not.
Let us hope that the Court invalidates this law.
The individual mandate is the apotheosis of the modern Democratic party’s way of doing business. In particular, it is the quintessential example of how, hiding behind a smokescreen of egalitarian rhetoric, the party has become deeply, perhaps hopelessly, anti-republican, happy to dole out favors to privileged groups while the rest of the country is left with nothing.
But you have you Two Minute Hates (or in the case of MSNBC- 24/7/365) and it makes liberals “feel good” because after all, they have a very high opinion of their greatness and charity. Reality is another matter.
Rasmussen has conducted 98 polls of likely voters. All 98 times, support for repeal has outpaced opposition to repeal. Across 98 contests, Obamacare has gone 0 and 98.
Real Clear Politics lists 20 other polls on repeal from across the past 27 months. In 19 of those 20, support for repeal has outpaced opposition to repeal — giving Obamacare an overall record of 1-117.(TWS)
And you know that one poll is all the Left will ever mention. That’s their reality.
Because the LEFT still thinks it’s the greatest boon to mankind since the invention of fire and that’s because it’s what THEY have always wanted and THEY want even MORE.
First, the individual mandate represents an enormous transfer of wealth, completely independent of income or social status. It transfers resources from the healthy to the sick, from the young to the old, without regard to who has more money to begin with. Democrats typically rail against supposedly regressive GOP tax proposals, but nothing the Republicans have ever cooked up compares to the individual mandate. While we’re on the subject of Democratic regressiveness, LBJ’s Medicare is a similarly regressive form of taxation, and ditto Social Security, ever since Johnson turned it into a pay-as-you-go system. Yet watch Democrats howl with outrage whenever the GOP dares suggest reforms that would alter this socially unjust status quo. (Jay Cost)
And it still begs the question: If the Federal Government can force you to buy Health Insurance, what else can they force you to buy? Or not buy? Do or not do?
Or what other aspects of your life are “unhealthy” and the government must step in to save you from yourself. Hmmm??
In a move that could significantly expand insurance coverage of weight-loss treatments, a federal health advisory panel on Monday recommended that all obese adults receive intensive counseling in an effort to rein in a growing health crisis in America.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force urged doctors to identify patients with a body mass index of 30 or more — currently 1 in 3 Americans — and either provide counseling themselves or refer the patient to a program designed to promote weight loss and improve health prospects.
“I’m sorry, Ms. Smith, But your BMI card shows you are Obese and have not been attending your mandatory classes so I can’t sell you this Big Mac with Fries. How about a nice Salad instead?” :)
The phone number for the “Racial profiling” hotline set up just hours after the SB1070 decision has been overloaded already. 2 days later.
Boy the La Raza Crowd has been busy. :)
Over the 12-month period from April 2010 to March 2011, the number of DOJ prosecutions resulting from referrals by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) totaled 21,669. By comparison, the period April 2011 to March 2012 accounted for 19,149 prosecutions based on ICE referrals – an estimated 12 percent drop.
DOJ prosecutions stemming from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) investigations dropped by six percent over the same period, from 69,840 in the April 2010-March 2011 period to 65,440 between April 2011 and March 2012.
So they aren’t even prosecuting the Felons they say they are “focused” on!!
So they won’t take calls from Arizona on Illegals, the DOJ isn’t even taking ICE seriously!
Under the Obama administration, ICE in June 2011 determined it would employ prosecutorial discretion in deciding which illegal aliens to deport. It is now focusing on aliens with serious criminal records.
“Until February 2011, ICE criminal prosecutions had been climbing, reaching a peak of 21,686 on an annual basis,” TRAC (Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse) said in releasing the latest DOJ immigration prosecution figures. “Since then, using a 12-month moving average, numbers can be seen to have been falling.”
TRAC noted that while the number of ICE criminal prosecutions has decreased, the number of ICE deportations is on track to reaching its stated goal of around 400,000 during FY 2012.
CBP-referred prosecutions have decreased over the first three years of the Obama administration, according to the figures obtained by TRAC.
“CBP prosecutions display a sharp rise beginning in February 2008. One year later in February 2009 CBP criminal prosecutions reached a peak of 80,147 over a 12-month period,” said TRAC.
“However, over the past three years (with some month-to-month variation) there has been a steady decline in criminal prosecutions resulting from referrals from the Border Patrol and other CBP officers catching violators at ports of entry. For the 12-month period ending in March 2012, CBP prosecutions had fallen to 65,440 – 18 percent below their peak.”
In FY 2011. an illegal alien faced an estimated 20 percent chance of facing criminal prosecution if apprehended by CBP: There were 340,252 apprehensions nationwide, but only 69,080 CBP-referred prosecutions that year, according to the data obtained by TRAC.
The previous year, 463,382 apprehensions nationwide resulted in 72,572 prosecutions, putting the odds of prosecution for an illegal alien who had been arrested by CBP at an estimated 16 percent.
In FY 2009 and FY 2008 the proportion of arrests to prosecutions was 14 percent and nine percent respectively. (CNS)
And now with Fiat Amnesty and the “We Don’t Care if you call us” attitude I bet it goes even lower.
So keep calling that Hotline if some cop looks at you the wrong way. :)
