Now You See It...Now You Don't!
It's Good to be the King!
Good Morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Our friend, the lovely Chiquita Cicada, has "popped" in for breakfast this morning. Her head is spinning from the rapid changes the omnipotent President Obama keeps making to the Unaffordable Care Act. She has asked for the pleasure of your company at breakfast. This morning we are having Bloody Mary's adorned with celery, olives and shrimp.
Hello, my much admired human family. Your President Obama is poised to announce yet another major delay in the implementation of his Unaffordable Care Act. The reason is quite transparent. He wants to take away some of the election pressure from Democrats whose jobs are on the line. After all this thing called ObamaCare was never about your health needs. Rather, it was about power. In order for the Democrats to retain power, they must get elected in the upcoming election. With the unpopular Unaffordable Care Act looming, the likelihood of re-election is getting dimmer by the moment. The answer for this man who would be King is quite simple. Change the Law! After all, he has that almighty pen and a telephone. It is all he needs. Most certainly he doesn't need the other branches of government. Clearly, the Founding Fathers had it all wrong!
Edit It Now!
If the law doesn't work, the answer is quite simple. Get rid of it for a little while. Now of course, it is necessary to believe that voters are simpletons who will be moved into a state of contentment by the decision to delay the implementation of the plan to its fullest extent. Apparently, this administration realizes that voters are not jazzed about the notion that they can't keep the plans they liked. President Obama solved this problem by putting this aspect of the law on hold until after his partners in misery are elected. Now bear with me on this. I may be only a lowly bug, but for the life of me I can't understand why any person with even a bit of intelligence would be lulled into complacency by this feeble attempt at manipulation. The Dems will have to answer for the millions of people who already lost their insurance. There is no going back where this is concerned. The only tactic left for the Obama Administration is to keep fiddling with the law to suit their needs. Forget about your needs. Your needs never entered into the picture.
President Obama can simply pull another rabbit out of his hat and change anything he wants. When he said he would go it alone, he meant it! This bug is stunned by the way this administration can alter laws to conform to the changing political environment. The Dems in the Senate need to keep seats, so "ipso presto" the law magically adapts itself to their needs.
Another bit of sleight of hand is occurring for members of Congress who are supposed to sign up for ObamaCare. The difference, and you knew there would be a difference, is that these privileged folks can opt out of this mess by retiring. Unlike you, members and staff who retire will be able to go back to health insurance coverage under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. That is the same exact coverage that other federal workers can use when they retire. These lucky people will have a wide array of coverage to choose from and none of it is remotely related to ObamaCare. It is good to be in the King's circle of power. In the meantime, members of Congress and their staff will enjoy the subsidies that the law offers them. President Obama believes this generosity is necessary in order to stop a possible "brain drain" of talent in Washington.
Use Your Brain to Vote!
Now Here's an Idea!
If the administration is so worried about losing talented people, perhaps you should put them on notice that they are in danger of losing you. This remark goes directly to those citizens who saw fit to elect President Obama two times. What more proof do you need to make you realize that his presidency is just not working out? He doesn't have your best interests at heart. Most of Congress doesn't either. Let all of them know you have had it and throw them out of office. Take back your country, your liberty and your dignity. Don't be fooled by childish games that delay the pain in order to trick you into submission. Be smarter than that. The moment of truth has arrived. You can do it! Make some noise!
I'm Chiquita Cicada and I'm here to say
I wish you would make them all go away!
