Not Again!

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Our delightful friend, Antoine, is here with me at the breakfast table. He has some news he would like to share with us. He baked scores of delicious croissants for breakfast and he has asked for the pleasure of your company. He hopes to see you soon.

Have You Heard?

Hello, my dear, human family. Did you know that the Obama administration has plans to bail out the insurance companies if they suffer a loss because of Obamcare. The Republicans have been talking about this for a while, but the Obama administration denied that there was any such plan to implement a bailout. What this administration failed to reveal is that hundreds of pages were added to the regulations just last week. The new regulations provide insurers with a safety net in exchange for keeping premiums reasonable over the next few years.

It doesn't take a math genius to realize that the American people will be paying premiums for healthcare that the Obama administration feels are fair. What you are not being told is that your tax dollars will be propping up the insurance industry and it could be to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars. In effect, you will be paying double for your healthcare!

Buried Regulations

The Obama administration managed to bury these new regulations in a mound of paperwork. The only thing transparent about this administration is the clear fact that they are not transparent at all. The administration will start spinning the story as soon as people catch on. Of course, given the fact that most of the media works for the WH, many of you will never even hear about it. If, the story has legs, the Obama administration will toss it aside and stress how hard they are working to keep premiums manageable for the beleaguered middle class. The mainstream media devotees will jump right in and do their part to blur the issue and support the President. Americans will probably have to endure a few more inane statements from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. In the end, most of the public will toss the entire issue aside. Only when the cost of this bailout hits them right in the pocketbook will they start to realize that they have been lied to once again.

Have You Had Enough?

Your President has a pen and a phone. He has been using it quite liberally these days and the effect on your country is stunning. He, and he alone, picks the issues he deems important. He solves them, at least in his mind, as he sees fit without Congress and the American people. This proposed bailout of the insurance industry crept in under the radar. Congress has been completely ineffective in its lame attempt to reign in the administration. This President rules by decree. He has usurped Congress' legislative constitutional authority and he isn't going to stop. He promised Americans that he was going to fundamentally transform America and he is keeping his promise.

On his own volition President Obama unilaterally changed Obamacare 24 times. He did not work with Congress. He did not work with the American people. He has changed the government to a government of one and every American regardless of party affiliation should be alarmed and disgusted.

Congress must act decisively to end Obama's personal reign of terror by executive order. We have three branches of government and we have them for a reason. We have a system of checks and balances that does not appear to be working as it was meant to work. Congress must protect every American by doing what they were sent to Washington to do. The American people must take steps to remind them of their obligations. If they don't respond, they must be held accountable. We need fresh blood in Washington. We need a citizenry that is knowledgeable and involved. Above all, we need a President that loves this country and respects the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Time is of the essence.

Your titles crack me up! LOL So, you are surprised that politicians lie? I doubt it. Anyone with half a brain understands that politicians are not serving the people, no matter what affiliation they are. Keep tooting the car horn my friend. Hopefully people will listen.

Antoine - This hub is a great piece of work, but comes as no surprise to me.

I believe many Insurers were reluctant to take part in the Obamacare fiasco until they received the promise that they would not take any losses.

Most of the big healthcare insurance companies are nothing but paper shufflers who are hired by large companies. They have no medical personell in their ranks, and the actual cost of medical claims is paid by those companies who hire them.

This is just another step toward the single-payer system where the insurance companies were "hired" by the government to administrate and shuffle paper. As you point out, we taxpayers will pay the full cost of this operation.

Anyone who can step back and look at the big picture could have predicted this would happen. Just another step in a larger plan to get what the government wanted in the first place.

Obamacare was just a single move in a giant game of chess. It won't be much longer before we hear them yell check-mate.

Good Morning Mike,

I know you are absolutely right. This whole dance was carefully orchestrated. Trying to screw things up and fail takes a certain amount of creativity. See you at the Inn. Costa Rica is looking mighty fine.

Why am I not shocked? The incompetent fool is in the w hite house. We have hundreds of incompetent fools in congress. There has to be enough violations of the Constitution that the guy should be impeached. Don't hold your breat. No one hs the cajones to impeach the guy. What a shame. Antoine, nice work. Go interupt a picnic on the white house lawn with your friends.

Our citizens need to understand that the quality of healthcare we are seeing in the news regarding the VA is exactly what we will have when the single payer system is implemented.

Many refuse to believe this, but it will become a reality. They had to destroy our less than perfect but workable healthcare system to make this happen.

The Obamacare bill is now an open book where pages can be added or torn out at will. I can see now why it was so important to get this bill passed without allowing anyone to read it before they voted. Now they can't say it wasn't what they voted on because they never even looked at it prior to the vote.

I would bet that now there are many politicians who regret having it a matter of record that they voted in favor of this open-ended bill.

Good Morning , taxlarry,

The fact that we are no longer surprised by incompetence and dishonesty speaks volumes. The worst thing that can happen to us is complacency. See you at the Inn. I don't do picnics. Too many bugs!

Dear Mike,

Our healthcare will be exactly like the VA. People will die waiting for appointments and the best and the brightest will leave medicine. See you later. We really need to talk about Costa Rica.

Antoine, I appreciate the information. You are at times a primary source for important political information.

As others have pointed out, politicians in general have pants on fire. I've watched politicians that I initially admired go down this road, first by compromising their beliefs, then adding lies to that.

I believe contrary to what many believe....I don't see a road back for America. Far too many Americans have betrayed themselves morally to allow for the country to rebound. I do tip my hat to those trying to right the ship, but I warn that it will be in vain; who are we going to elect that will do the right things? Even if there are a small bunch of folks who would love to take a shot at it, the system in DC would quickly corrupt them. The rest are already corrupted.

Antoine, perhaps it's time to face the truth that we can pull "fresh faces" only from the cesspool that has become America, and those faces will be covered in fecal matter.

Damn! Oh the vocabulary I would LOVE to use!.....We should have passed "ENOUGH" a few years back!.....

Just make me smile and tell me there are politicians permanently buried under that mountain of paperwork. That would be Justice.

Good Morning tirelesstravler,

Soon breathing time will be allocated by the government. In the meantime, I'll take every breath I can! See you at the Inn. The air is better over there.

Good Morning Hxprof,

I get how you feel, but I am still hoping that somewhere out there is a person or person with the talent, integrity and guts to right this ship. Dr Ben Carson is definitely one of them. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning fp,

Smile away, plenty of politicians are under that suffocating pile! I am sure that enough garbage will pile up to handle all of them! See you at the Inn.

Good Morning FitnezzJim,

Why is it always us? See you at the Inn.


Hxprof 2 years ago from Clearwater, Florida

Pop, I understand the desire to find SOMEONE, anyone with moral integrity and a desire to return to constitutional government. And Ben seems like a good hearted person. Has Ben proposed how he will change the hearts of more than half the nation, from the inside out? Indeed, it would take more than just better governance - hearts must be genuinely changed. Otherwise, the efforts of Ben and those like him would be for naught. See you at the inn.

Dear Hxprof,

Actually Carson is worth listening to. He actually has some ideas which make sense as opposed to this administration which is delusional. Having said that, I do realize the job may be impossible because our national character has changed. To the Inn and we'll talk some more.

I doubt they would even let Dr. Carson give this a try. He is a direct threat to many of the current politicians and they are scared he may decide to make a run for President in 2016.

I truly believe if anyone could straighten out the mess in the VA it would be Ben Carson, but they would fight him all the way.

He would need to have the right to fire those employees who are just not doing their jobs, and that right will never be granted. Firing incompetents is just not the government way.

I also believe that nothing will happen to fix the VA until there are more panels formed to investige the issues that will stall any action for a year or more. When in doubt, or when someone might get blamed, just form a committe to investigate and that works every time.

Dear Mike,

Until we require government workers to be accountable the exact same way we do in the private sector, we will have a mess on our hands. Nobody gives a damn in government, because they know nothing will happen to them if they fall asleep at the wheel. The government rewards inefficiency. As for Ben Carson, I hope he holds up to those who will try to eliminate him. He is a good man. To the Inn, Mike!

I just learned last week that my small business owner son and his wife lost their plans last fall due to Obamacare. They were reinstated after Obama frantically urged the companies to do so, but my daughter-in-law lost her plan again after the Obamacare enrollments closed. A few weeks later, she had to have an appendectomy, and they are now on the hook for the whole thing. I don't think Obama has plans to rescue them.

Dear Will,

I am so sorry to hear this. This is, sadly, the perfect example of what government does best...screw things up royally. See you at the Inn.

Given that we know no action will be taken to correct this, we will have to console ourselves with the declaration that at least one among them is deeply disturbed.

Good Morning FitnezzJim,

I think they are all deeply disturbed! Enjoy the weekend, despite the mess this nation is in.

I don't even get surprised anymore concerning Obama's bag of tricks. He reeally can't do anything right, nor does he try. Changing Obamacare that many times is a joke. Great hub!

Good Mornirning, Pamela,

Obama is a rogue President. You're right...every day is another disaster. He is all over the place grabbing control of every part of our country. See you at the Inn.

Obamacare must be completely and totally repealed... its a complete mess beyond saving... even with the President illegally changing the law every few days....

Dear wesgade,

I agree with you completely. Frankly, I think this disaster will bring us to a single payor system which is a disaster on top of a disaster.
