Tyranny... Obama Health Care and Waiver Corruption

It really bothers me to have to go there. I mean it really, really, really bothers me. The reason? Because no one, especially an American citizen should ever feel the need to go there.

You ask, were exactly is that? To which I must reply to fight tyranny in our own democratic republic. But sadly, because of republican statists like GWB, and the current statist BO,iberty minded individuals have but little choice to go there in defense of our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Our Statist in Chief, after ram rodding his so called health care reform down the throats of all Americans, has saw fit to exempt his cronies from comply with the very law he and his statist cronies foisted upon all of America.

I refer to "The Waivers." that exempt those granted said waiver from complying with ObamaCare. Presently there have been over 1,000 waivers granted to Obama cronies.

From The Washington Times

Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.

America’s founders rejected that road to tyranny when they boldly declared that all men are created equal. They wrote a Constitution meant to secure the promise of equal protection under the law.

President Obama, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrats all, in their rush to take over America’s health care system, made all sorts of outlandish, unkeepable promises. Among the most egregious: Obamacare would allow you to keep your current health insurance and your doctor. Mr. Obama’s own Medicare chief actuary now acknowledges that Obamacare may cause up to 20 million Americans to lose their current health insurance policies, and doctors are increasingly leaving Medicare, Medicaid and the practice of medicine altogether. Good luck keeping them. Another unkeepable promise: Obamacare “will create 4 million jobs, 400,000 jobs almost immediately.” The Congressional Budget Office’s budget director estimates the law actually will destroy 800,000 jobs.

Obamacare’s chickens, to borrow a phrase our president may have heard somewhere before, are coming home to roost. The law, as currently adjudicated, has been ruled unconstitutional. The president’s own secretary of health and human services, Kathleen Sebelius, has admitted a major section of the Obamacare law is “totally unsustainable.” Before casting his vote in favor of Obamacare, Sen. Kent Conrad, North Dakota Democrat, described it as “a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing that Bernie Madoff would have been proud of.” Well, Mr. Conrad, Mr. Madoff certainly would be proud of you and your colleagues. {Read More}

We are indeed witnessing the tyranny of the progressives as we begin the second decade of the 21'st century. Tyranny looks and smells the same regardless from whence it comes.

  1. "Our Statist in Chief, after ram rodding his so called health care reform down the throats of all Americans, has saw fit to exempt his cronies from comply with the very law he and his statist cronies foisted upon all of America."

    This has been going on for a very long time. Our politicians use legislation to punish enemies and reward cronies. This is just the most audacious example. The thieves are so emboldened they rob us in broad daylight, not even bothering to cover their actions with rhetorical darkness.

    This is not lawmaking. Our government is now dedicated to bald-faced mockery of the law.

  2. Indeed... It is only a matter of time and we WILL be a full fledged banana republic.

  3. Well, take it easy. Obamacare is not going to change your life.

    I assume you already have insurance. I hope you do. That's good. That won't change.

    Remember, Obamacare was passed through the tax code. It's not nearly the force of government you think it is.

    It was a compromise that stretched into the center-right that passed the bills.

    There's no "Ponzi scheme" (you'd really have to be a born mark to think otherwise). There's no great transfer of wealth.

    Obamacare, as it's popularly called by idiots (;)no insult meant), actually would help millions of people get preventative and routine health care. It's smart. We need this. It's only a cent or so on the dollar.


  4. RN,

    The Washington Times is just a propaganda rag published by some airhead Moonies. There is absolutely zero reporting based in fact. The article the Rebel quotes reads like a high-schoolers blog post. I'm just asking questions like, "Who is exempted?", "from what?", "What is the author actually trying to say in any kind of realistic terms?" There's nothing there. It's all mindless blather. I think Jersey is trying to put you on the right track. So far Obamacare has done very little except to protect the sick from cancellation or refusal of coverage. This could drive the over-all cost of insurance up. That would be an argument worth having. I wouldn't trust the Washington Times to report on the weather.

  5. Flying Junior - Sounds an awful lot like The New York Times, and the Boston Globe now doesn't it?

    Other than that what else can I say to a progressive?

    The W.T. is a bit more reliable than the W.P.

  6. JMJ - I see you have been drinking the ObamaAid! Good for you. Big sister will certainly take care of you in your needy, and you are certainly needy, old age.

  7. Les,

    To compare the Washington Times to the New York Times is to compare two cans and a wire to GPS.

    You'll be needier than I. You'll have to figure that out.


  8. I like the Boston Globe alot. Now there is a labor of love.

  9. FJ - It's a labor for sure! More like the labor of parasites feeding off the productive efforts of those who produce things of value however.

  10. RN: Flying is completely correct about the Washington Times. It IS the moonie newsletter. Look into it.

    There are plenty of conservative newspapers out there that aren't really a tax laundering scheme by a criminal enterprise. It's not hard to find them and quote from them instead.

  11. And, no... the Washington Post IS a lot more valid than the Washington Times. It's a real newspaper. Its left-wing bias does nothing to diminish that.
