Tax Cheat Charlie Said....

Watching the Congressional hearings can have its moments. When Charlie Rangel gets a microphone in front of him I usually know I'm about to experience a Moon Bat Moment. Right now if I were a Democratic big wig, thank God I'm not, Rangel would be the last one I would want to speak for the party. Well, maybe not but he's right there in the running. The Democrats are running scared about the Obamacare disaster and it shows. Sebelius just confirmed for us that they also call it a disaster so relax my liberal readers.

So here we have a known tax cheat and crook speaking anew for his Democratic brethren. Don't you Democrats find that a bit embarrassing? Now I have to remember that the guy is 80+ years old now and probably a couple of ham sandwiches short of a picnic. He should have been put out to pasture long ago but he is good entertainment for the Democratic party though a real embarrassment.

Please Don't Vote Democratic In 2014 So We Can Stop The Looting

Rangel obviously missed the history lesson about the passage of Social Security. Or maybe he knows that the average American doesn't have a clue and will swallow lies hook, line and sinker. So let me set the record straight for the low information crowd Rangel panders to. Social Security was passed in 1935. Now according to Charlie not one Republican voted for that bill. That is as far from the truth as one can get but more than one person, other than Charlie Rangel, might now believe that because he said it.

In the hearing Charlie was trying to make not one Republican voting for Obamacare synonymous with the passage of Social Security. There is no parallel - ZERO. I will qualify what Rangel said and how he said it, “I don't think that one Republican voted for the Social Security Act.”

Charlie! It's hard to think with one brain cell. So the House Ways & Means Chairman had to step in to correct Charlie The Cheat. Historically Chairman Camp was spot on. He pointed out fact versus Charlie the Harlem Tuna fiction, "In fact, the 1935 law establishing Social Security passed out of the House with the support of 81 Republicans. Just 15 opposed it. On the Senate side, 16 Republicans voted for it, and five voted against.”

I'm waiting for the Democrats to start blaming the crash of Obamacare on Bush. Maybe they already have and I missed it.

A little more background history for the uneducated among us. Social Security started out with a ratio of 30 people paying in for each recipient. Currently that is down to 3:1. Social Security is also a wealth transfer program and we know where it is going - BROKE. That is despite what Harry Reid or Charlie Rangel wants you to believe. The actuaries have it down pretty close to when in actuality.

Social Security is a form of forced compliance. It looks good on paper but has some major glitches just like ObamaShock does. You pay in a certain percentage of your income into the system like it or not. Your employer pays the same amount in your name too. That's also whether they want to or not. He does that for you and all the other employees. See how bad those meanies are? I'm self-employed so I pay in the full amount rather than just one half. In effect the federal government is forcing people to comply and then using the money for something other than what it was intended to be used for. I call that theft.

Rangel is obviously blowing smoke. Social Security and Obamacare are similar in one regard. A house of cards will always be just that. There are many forms of Ponzi schemes and the federal government is now running some of the biggest in history. When you run out of other people's money the jig is up. Large groups of people are either getting health insurance for nothing or on the cheap. The on the cheap comes through giving people subsidies. Now ask yourself the key question knowing there is no free lunch, "Where are the subsidies coming from?"

Easily Translated.

One figure released by HHS seems a bit low but will illustrate the point. This appeared in USA Today, “almost half of young, single, uninsured adults in 34 states could pay $50 or less a month for insurance through the online exchanges after receiving subsidies," That was the findings of a HHS study just released this past Monday. Looking at what I am seeing I'm not sure I believe a darned word HHS puts out about this program one way or the other.

Not sure the Congressional sweetheart deal Congress cut for itself concerning their subsidies will hold up so we'll wait and see. Too many provisions are being created outside the framework of the law are being created by HHS, Congress or Obama himself that are heading for the courts. Those Congressional subsidies are now sacred ground to the Democrats in Congress in case you weren't watching.

Rangel is used to stealing so there is nothing amiss here. Where does the money come from to give anyone, much less a Congressman, a subsidy to buy anything? It comes from other people. The government is taking money from some people and forking it over to other people. It was a basic tenant of Karl Marx's vision of utopia. In my world I call that outright theft of what I have earned and they have not. Obama likes to call it fairness. Some needs to tell Obama that life isn't always fair and never will be.

The reality is that it is a huge vote buying scheme that the Democrats have adopted in order for them to continue to warm those cushy seats. Like Rangel they believe in their grisly hearts there is a free lunch - always at someone else's expense you see. In November of 2014 we need to send more of these backward thinking critters packing.

Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Keep in mind that a districts elected representative is supposed to be the best they have to offer. In the case of Charlie Rangel, that is most likely true. He was found guilty of ethics violations and was reelected in the very next election. That doesn't speak highly for the IQ of the voters in his district.

It was interesting how several used their allotted time making campaign speeches rather than asking questions? They assumed that perhaps a couple of their constituents were actually watching the hearings rather than the cartoon channel.

Mike - It seems fitting that low information voters elect low information representatives. Happened twice with Obama.

Read great article. However, many Democrats will highly deny and repudiate the notion that any Democrat politician is dishonest, unethical, and downright insidious. They would rather displace this on Republican candidates. They will just rationalize the Democratic deities, including the Big Democratic diety, Obama. To say that the Democrats are unethical is akin to utter and banal blasphemy to these diehard Democrats. They will explain away the Democratic political machine to HELL!

The misinformed and always misguided Charlie Rangel is also quite proud to say that there is no question that members of Congress are entitled to taxpayer-funded subsidies when they purchase health insurance through Obamacare exchanges. He says the money is part of his overall compensation. When is your subsidy coming?

GM I wish more people could really get what you just said...Liars never admit their lies and always project their lack of morality onto their opposition because they know if they were the opposition they'd be doing exactly what they do but accuse the opposition of doing. Once they cross the line into liberalism they lose all perspective and can only think in the mode they have adopted. It is a disease and there is no cure for their disease called liberalism.

Tsad, there are people who will believe what THEY want to despite logical evidence to the contrary. You see people have their sacred cows. To such people, the sacred cow is Almighty, Perfect, and Untouchable. If one utters that the particular sacred cow is wrong, the attack mode begins. The halo effect is in. The attitude and consensus is "Don't YOU dare critical the ALMIGHTLY SACRED COW, how DARE you! By the way, I have a question stating. " What is the president evading regarding answers relating to the Benghazi incident which took many American lives?" Please check out the question and respond.

Yep, the schizoid personality in action. Some people are deathly afraid of reality even when it SLAPS them in the face. If it crawls like a snake, hiss like a snake, and bites like a snake, then it is a..........SNAKE. Oh no, they will deny until the psychological venom courses through their psyche, then it will be ..........TOO LATE!

Frog, one thing is true, the Democrats don't run tax cheats for President. Instead when they are in power they appoint them to leadership positions IE. Geitner, Tom Daschle and Rangel.

Republicans and Tea Partiers tend to shout the loudest when it comes to tax reform, and they’re also the most law abiding when it comes to paying their taxes. Democratic Tax Cheats Outnumber Republican, 72% v. 28% http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2011/04/de...

Great link but low information voters seem to have reading comprehension problems. Point in fact. This article is about Rangel and along comes a stooge wanting to talk about Romney. I don't remember mentioning the man's name. Did you see it anywhere in my article?

Just like Medicare is being raided via fee cap reductions to reduce Obamacare deficits, I expect the same to happen within Obamacare itself. Primary care doctors are already retiring early, and this pattern will continue, because patients won't be able to afford the uncapped fees resulting from doctors refusing to take Obamacare assignments and then get a pittance back from Obamacare. While it may be true that hospitals and drug companies "paid the freight" to keep most of their revenues up under Obamacare, primary care doctors are not organized enough to have done this. And what good are hospitals and drugs if there are no primary care doctors to guide you to what services you need?

What good is covering preexisting conditions if there are no specialists to treat them? That will be next, people, although their preexisting conditions are covered, will wait forever to see a doctor unless they go outside the system. So in reality their preexisting conditions still will not be covered. Just wait until the system is fully employed - it won't do anything it was promised to do...NOTHING.

And good luck finding a doctor that speaks English.

tsadjatko - The specialists will be OK, because most are associated with hospital networks, which paid the plutocratic freight to keep their revenues rolling in under ObieCare. The problem is that primary care doctors are going to get hammered by fee cap reductions, so patients won't be able to get advice regarding which type of specialists they need to see. So far, about 85% of primary care doctors are considering retiring early. This is going to be a nightmare for patients.

Thanks for the update on this man's actions. My mother taught me that if I don't have anything nice to say, I shouldn't say anything. See you later.
