Sooooo … it looks like the three stupid socialist stooges of Reid, Pelosi and Baucus did NOT have all the answers after all. (I know you’re shocked.)

Say it ain’t so O … but it looks like the Communist Organizer’s ObeymeCare plan is more complex than the simple-minded version he sold to the simple-minded.

And it looks like Federal bureaucrats are ASTONISHED and confused that every State in the union is different. Imagine that!

You know those ‘health care exchanges’ that are the centerpiece of ObeyeMe’s ‘signature law?” Well, his administration is facing major challenges in the creation of those exchanges because of all the States that have declined to set up their own systems. I applaud the States (16 and counting) who are smart enough to let the Feds set up the exchange. In the future, when the cost over-runs occur–and you know damn well they will– those States that set up their own exchanges will get shackled with the massive increased burden. Those States that left it to the geniuses in Washington will not get a bill. And, let’s face it … The Bama wants the States to set up the exchanges so he and his administration can take political pot shots at them from a distance. Ahhh, but the States who are passing the endeavor back to Washington know that in doing so the failure will be ObeyMe’s and his alone, and he won’t be able to blame George Bush for any of those States, not even for Texas.

The wealthy will always have private insurance outside of ObeymeCare, and the better doctors will simply not take insurance payments and will not take on public leeches. Can’t wait to see all those ObeyMe voters when they find out they’re not getting free Cadillac plans, when they see the gazillion bureaucratic, paper-intensive hoops they’ll have to jump through at every step of the way, when they see how long it takes to get a doctor’s appointment (and using an ObamaPhone won’t speed up that endeavor), when they have to wait two years for a medical procedure——unless of course you’re homosexual and want to trans-gender: Now THAT whole process—psychological eligibility screening, hormones protocol, voice lessons, surgery and post-surgical counseling, etc. and so forth—WILL definitely move a person to the beginning of the line, no waiting at all, unless of course the person develops cancer during the process. Then, he/she will have to wait two years just like everyone else.

So, for now, this ‘exchanges thing’ is but a small skirmish, my friends … with more, and THE BEST, yet to come.

    Excellent article, Lori. The “best” is yet to come. All the numbnuts who have been cheerleading for this crap are in for an rude awakening. The rest of us…..not so much. I will not participate.

    Not disagreeing – where do the things you are talking about come from? I have some very progressive friends/family, and want to know where to go to verify these sort of allegations before I throw them out there. Thanks people – and keep on rolling, Jan!!!

    When I retired, I had a Cadillac plan. Now it has turned into a skateboard! 1400% increase from last year. Thank you to this Ignorant bunch in the District of Corruption. This country had had better wake up and impeach his Liar-n-Chief, but it will never happen because the people are hypnotised by this wann be Dictator. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Get read for the crash!

    Call your State Representatives and demand not ask that they refuse Obummer Care. States have that option.

    James Carville Says 80% Of Democrats Are
    Politically Clueless

    James Carville, Democrat
    political consultant extraordinaire – and former Bill Clinton campaign manager,
    has astonishingly come out and said what all good Republicans have known for
    decades: Not only are most Democrats politically clueless; they’re easily manipulated
    by the puppet masters of their party as well. Wow. James Freaking Carville. Of
    all people. Here’s an excerpt, as quoted on Amazon.com:

    “Ideologies aren’t all
    that important. What’s important is psychology.

    The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have
    to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That’s why I became
    an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make
    a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in
    case a few want to bolt the herd.

    Eighty percent of the
    people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.

    What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers
    and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact
    opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there
    and you can get people to vote any way you want.

    The voter is basically
    dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a
    Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue
    than there were Republicans.

    Truth is relative.
    Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart
    enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a
    Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”

      The above quote was falsely attributed to Carville. He never said it.
