More Horrors of Obamacare-This Time It’s Personal

obama-speech-e1342050505906Obamacare image

While liberal politicians are touting the wonders of Obamacare and liberal voters who signed up for it are having orgasms over Obama for giving them Obamacare,in reality the horrors are just beginning for some. A very good friend of mine who I’ve known for 40 years is having his bouts now because of Obamacare. He’s bi-polar, has asthmatic bronchitis, diabetes, hyper-tension and takes 25 pills a day and lives alone. He is very bright mentally having an MBA and was a former professor.

He recently was diagnosed with a blockage in his heart and a clot in his lung that leaves him breathless when walking a little ways. He recently went for a cardiac catherization for the blockage in his heart. I told him he should really have home healthcare. Last year he had a knee operation and was in the hospital for one day. When he came home he had home nurses come to help him plus physical therapy.

He called his insurance company United Health Care and they told him it would have to come from his primary doctor. He called him and he said they were working on it. Two weeks later he didn’t hear anything so he called his insurance again and this time they told him he would have to call the nursing association. He called them and they said it would have to come from his primary. He felt he was getting the run around so he called the head nurse at St. Barnabas hospital near where he lives and where he was in the hospital for his knee.

The nurse there told him he didn’t qualify because 1) he is on medicare and 2) because he has to be in the hospital more than two days to qualify for home healthcare and with the cardiac catherization he was treated as an outpatient. The nurse said this was a new ruling under Obamacare. If he was poor he  would be able to qualify if he had medicaide,but he makes too much on his disability to qualify even though he qualified last time. She said this is a new rule to save expenses under Obamacare. He was treated like dirt he said when he told them he was on medicare.  Noone wants to get involved with Obamacare, instead they all blame the other person.

I asked him if he read the fine print on his policy and he said he did and home healthcare is part of it, but the nurse said this is a new rule under Obamacare that you have to be in the hospital more than three days to qualify for home heallthcare. So far Obama has changed Obamacare 24 times since it was voted into law which is illegal in the first place.  You can’t keep changing a law once it is voted on, but Obama is a lawless president.  I read recently where his insurance United Healthcare was laying off hundreds of doctors to save expenses under Obamacare and so far 7 million people have lost their insurance policies under Obama. If they can deny home healthcare to people like my friend then they can deny procedures too. Obama said there are no death panels in Obamacare.  That’s another lie. There is the Independent Advisory Board which says who gets what procedure and when according to age vs. cost.

My friend called Medicare and they told him he can’t get it and the representative said this  ” I’m not supposed to talk politics, but people have the right to be happy ,but you can’t be happy under Obamacare and we know it won’t be that way. I’m not supposed to talk politcs, but I’m pissed off at Obama. You can’t have nurses because you’re not  bed ridden and only 59 years old even though you have all these diseases and that’s because of Obama.” He said he never had a representative say anything like that. You know people are rebelling when people in the healthcare industry start talking like that.

 So all these liberals who are praising Obama for Obamacare just wait until they have to find a doctor and hospital that will take it. If it’s so great why did Obama exempt all of congress and the senate from it allowing them to have their own special government plan and why is he exempting unions and others who apply for exemptions from it? Just wondering.

Jimmy Fallon+Seth Myers=Late Night Saturday Night Live (SNL)

  Jimmy Fallon, Montclair Film Festival, 2013.jpg       5.3.10SethMeyersByDavid-Shankbone.jpg                    

 When Jimmy Fallon took over for Jay Leno on the Tonight Show I decided to see how he does because replacing a giant like Jay Leno is surely a task worth fighting  for. Jimmy is a talented guy and can be very funny. He was originally a cast member and writer for Saturday Night Live from 1998-2004. He’s 40 years old this September and has been in 9 movies from 2000 to 2009 mostly which are forgettable. He’s been the recipient  of numerous TV awards and nominations and hosted SNL many times. He had his own show called Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from 2009-2014. Jimmy can be very funny and is excellent at impersonations of famous people.

The new producers of the new Tonight Show said Jimmy’s show would be less political in humor and guests than Leno was, so what do they do? They book the biggest political guest Michelle Obama on last Monday’s show. She did a bit with Fallon and comedian/actor Will Farrell who I think is really funny called their “EW moment” or something like that. Fallon and Farrell dressed up as two teen-age girls who said “Ewww” a lot as they interacted with Michelle. I thought this skit was very juvenile, silly and lame. Later Jimmy interviewed Michelle and it was here she called young people who didn’t sign up for Obamacare “Knuckleheads” which I thought was highly insulting. If I was a young millenial I would be so put off to her by that remark.

I tried giving Jimmy another chance so I watched him the next night. I thought his opening monologue was terrible and he seemed nervous for someone so used to being in front of live audiences and had to re-emphasize his jokes throughout, yet the audience roared in approval. He seemed to be appealing to a lower class of people than Leno did and maybe that’s the idea. I guess they want to appeal to a younger demographic.

Jimmy seemed better at interviewing and interacting with his guests like Paul Rudd and Shaquille O’Neil than stand-up. On Wednesday night Jimmy has comedian Adam Sandler on who I have mixed reactions to from being really funny to very obnoxious. Sandler was also a regular on SNL.

In 2007 Jimmy married producer Nancy Juvonen and they have a daughter born in 2013 via surrogacy.

Following Jimmy’s Show is Seth Myers who also was a writer for and cast member from SNL. Seth Adam Meyers (born December 28, 1973)[4] is an American actorvoice actorscreenwriterproducertelevision host and comedian. He is a former head writer for NBC‘s Saturday Night Live and hosted its news parody segmentWeekend Update. Meyers currently hosts the talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, which premiered on Monday February 24, 2014, on NBC.  On Monday’s show Seth had Amy Poehler on from the new show Parks and Recreation as well as VP Joe Biden.  Poehler was also a member of SNL and known for her impersonation of Hillary Clinton. I wasn’t really familiar with Seth Myers, but found him to be very lackluster and boring and just blah in his appearance and monologue. His guitarist in his band struck me as being a nerdy, deadpan sidekick complete with horn rimmed nerdy glasses. Late Night With Seth Meyers” will need several weeks before it lands on its own particular brand of strangeness and attitude, if viewers will wait around that longObviously Myers appeals to the same demographic as Fallon. I can’t see either of these shows lasting, but time will tell.

The big question is why would NBC fire someone like Jay Leno who was at the top of his career bringing in the biggest ratings NBC ever had not only once but twice? Sean Hannity thinks it was because they want to make NBC and the Tonight Show a safe haven for liberals since Jay was more conservative and partisan. Another comment I saw from a reader said something interesting also. He said that the mid-term elections are coming up and they want someone influential towards more liberal candidates such as Fallon and Myers whereas Jay was influential towards conservatives. We shall see what the future brings.

In the meantime I found this interesting comment from a viewer that sums it up.: Seth Meyers was just ho-hum, ok, and will continue to be just a mediocre funnyman. Seth Meyers is also an obvious beneficiary of Lorne Michaels’. If it weren’t for majordomo Michaels, the two, former SNL “Weekend Update” hosts/co-hosts (Messrs. Fallon & Meyers) would not have just happened to roll their dice and got (extremely) lucky as they did. No mind-blowing, uproariously funny new comedy on NBC btwn. 11:35p-1:35a. Just recycled mess from Fallon & Meyers, Inc.’s halcyon days over the past 2 decades at a similar workplace (Rockerfeller Center, NBC, SNL) in NY.

Ann Coulter: Obama Says If You Like You Life You Can keep It !!!

JTM-017053.jpg

I was so impressed with Ann Coulter’s current column on Obamacare that I decided to include  the whole thing in this week’s blog so here it is in full. She is so right on and hits the nail on the head. I also included a few links below that are also impressive. Particularly about a man who needs back surgery really bad and when he signed up for Obamacare he can’t find a doctor or hospital in his network that he needs. Many doctors aren’t signing up for Obamcare. While people like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Obama are saying Obamacare is so wonderful  now  and people don’t have to work anymore or worry about the stress of a job because now they have health insurance and they are publishing testimonials by people who have signed up for Obamacare, just try to find a doctor or hospital that will take it. Sure you have coverage, you just don’t have a doctor or hospital. Also good luck in not having your records hacked by a foreign country as well as here as they didn’t put in any safeguards to prevent that from happening and they had a Russian company in Belarus, Russia work on it and I understand they put in codes that can allow hacking. Remember Obamcare is not about healthcare, IT’S ABOUT  CONTROL!!!!!

                                                                  Ann  Coulter’s  article

Liberals are winning wild praise for their candor in admitting problems with Obamacare. It shows you the level of honesty people have come to expect of our liberal friends. Now, liberals are applauded for not lying through their teeth about something. 


What are they supposed to say? This Obamacare website is fantastic! And really, haven’t you already read all the magazines in your current doctor’s office anyway?

The New York Times has described Obama’s repeated claim that you could keep your insurance plan and keep your doctor under Obamacare as a mere slip of the tongue: “Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that.”

Misspoke? How exactly does one misspeak, word for word, dozens of times, over and over again?

That wasn’t misspeaking — it was a deliberate, necessary lie. Even Democrats couldn’t have voted for Obamacare if Americans had known the truth. It was absolutely vital for Obama to lie about people being able to keep their insurance and their doctors.

Of course, it was difficult for voters to know the truth because every time Republicans would try to tell them, the White House and the media would rush in and call the critics liars.

The White House posted a specific refutation of the “disinformation” about not being able to keep your doctor or insurance plan. That claim, the website said, was being disseminated by Republicans “to scare people.”

Their proof consisted of a video of Obama clearly stating, “If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.”

A video of someone asserting the very fact in dispute does not rise to the level of “evidence,” but it was more than enough for MSNBC.

Even when pretending to be critical of Obamacare, liberals lie about the real problems. They tell us they’re worried about the percentage of young people signing up for Obamacare. The mix of young and old people in Obamacare is completely irrelevant. It won’t help if a lot of young people sign up because their premiums are negligible.

To keep the system afloat, what Obamacare really needs is lots of healthy people, preferably healthy older people. Their premiums are astronomical — and they won’t need much medical treatment.

Premiums are set by your age, not your health. It doesn’t matter if you never go to the doctor. Obamacare punishes you for having a healthy lifestyle. The Obamacare tax is a massively regressive poll tax on the middle-aged and the middle class.

Apart from those who are subsidized, everyone pays the exact same amount in penalties or insurance premiums for his age group. It doesn’t matter if you don’t make as much money as Bill Gates. Any 58-year-old male who doesn’t qualify for a subsidy will pay the same Obamacare tax as Gates.

When Margaret Thatcher tried to impose the same tax per person, as a “community charge,” there were riots in the street.

Our extremely progressive tax system, where nearly half the country pays no income tax at all, and the other half pays about 40 percent of their income, may not be fair. But most people also don’t think it’s fair to tax a guy making $80,000 a year the identical amount as one making $80 million a year. That’s exactly what Obamacare does.

With Obamacare, the Democratic Party has foisted the most regressive tax possible on America. This ruthless assault on the middle class is all so we can have a health care system more like every other country has.

Until now, the United States has had the highest survival rates in the world for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cancer comparisons are the most useful because all Western countries keep careful records for this disease.

For all types of cancers, European men have only a 47.3 percent five-year survival rate, compared to a 66.3 percent survival rate for American men.

European women have only a 55.8 percent chance of being alive five years after being diagnosed with any type of cancer, compared to 62.9 percent of American women.

American survival rates for breast, prostate, thyroid and skin cancer are higher than 90 percent. Europeans do not have a 90 percent survival rate for one of those cancers.

The European rates are even worse than they sound because many cancers are not discovered until the victim’s death — twice as many as in the U.S. All those cancers were excluded from the study.

Canadian cancer survival rates aren’t much better than the European rates — and they’ve been able to sneak into to the U.S. for treatment! Women in the U.S. have a 61 percent survival rate for all cancers, compared to a 58 percent survival rate in Canada. Men in the U.S. have a 57 percent survival rate compared to 53 percent in Canada.

That’s why your insurance premiums have to go through the roof and your Obamacare tax is the same as Bill Gates’. So across the world, we’ll all be equal, dying of cancer, heart disease and diabetes as often as everyone else.

It’s not that Obama doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism; it’s that he wants to end it.

Obama: The Man Who Would Be King and His Republican Enabelers

Obama-the-King.jpg (396×500)

Erik Erikson, Editor in Chief of Red State hit it perfectly today when he said:

“The House and Senate Republicans have handed Barack Obama a blank check to raise the national debt as much as he wants.

Throughout last year, Republicans said conservatives should fight on the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should filibuster the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should shut down the government over the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution.

After conservatives balked at their lies and the Democrats shut down the government, Republican leaders scrambled as fast as possible to throw conservatives under the bus and reopen the government. Still, they said, the debt ceiling fight was coming up and they’d hold the Democrats accountable.

Just two weeks ago, Senator Mitch McConnell claimed the GOP would refuse a clean debt ceiling increase and demand cuts and reform.

But this week the GOP caved across the board. They gave the President the right to raise the debt as much as he wants until March of 2015 — as much as he wants. 

Mitch McConnell became the key vote today to give Barack Obama blank check to increase the national debt. This debt ceiling increase is not tied to a month, but rather a time period. Consequently, the President can grow the national debt as much as he wants during that time. “

Yes Obama is acting like a true King now saying he will by-pass congress to get things done, “I have the pen and I have the phone” he brazenly said at his SOTU speech recently. Recently when he was with French President Hollande and they broke away from the press conference he said, “We’re breaking protocol here. I’m the president I can do what I want.”

Yes this is a man who is out of control and completely lawless. He’s caused five million people and counting to lose their doctors and health insurance, he keeps changing and bending his healthcare law at will changing it 14 times so far. Once a law has become “law of the land” like Obamacare and passed into law, you can’t keep changing it like that. He is a socialist dictator.

Of course the libs at the far left Huiffington Post say that because of his socialist dictatorial actions, unemployment is down to 6.6% (that’s not counting the 9 or 10 million who are off the record and stopped looking for work) and the deficit is cut in half, but I think those figures can be disputed .A record 50 million people are on food stamps now, he’s raised the debt to 17 trillion and spent more than all the presidents combined and now expects us to pay for it thru his MyRa scam. He’s also promising people free healthcare being paid for  by the rich in this country and those that sign up for it and pay which half haven’t so far missing the Jan.1st deadline. The founding fathers must be turning in their graves.

If this were a republican president he’d be having his head handed to him on a silver platter, castigated, impeached and thrown out of office, but don’t expect that to happen here with this feckless group of republicans, especially people like Boehner and McConnell who cave at his every whim.

Yes Obama should be impeached and all of what I just mentioned, but don’t expect that to happen to the “first black president.” They’d be called a bunch of racists. In fact anytime you criticize Obama you are labeled a racist. Martin Luther King said he wanted to see a society where you judge a person by the content of their character not the color of their skin. With Obama and his minions everything is about color.

“We’re looking at the numbers, and Romney’s beating Obama, but then they just turned out their hard-core base, and our hard-core base stayed home,” she said. “Which they’re going to do again, because of what they’re seeing as the lack of, I don’t want to say leadership, but just who is speaking out is being maligned by our own people. We’re eating ourselves alive.”
