“Get ready for Obamacare sticker shock” Orwellian lie from Charlotte Observer repeated by Greensboro News Record, Narrative for election, Shift blame to Republicans, Shock and lies began in 2009, Premiums deductibles policy losses job losses health care losses, Tell big lie and repeat
“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.
Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013
“If you like your plan, you can keep it.”…Barack Obama
“millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”…NBC News October 29, 2013
The Obamacare debacle, sticker shock and tragedy began long before Donald Trump ran for office.
This was the doing of Barack Obama and the Democrats.
As predicted by their behavior patterns, they screw things up and then create a narrative to shift the blame to Republicans.
They have had great success in the past due to their dumbed down sheeple followers.
From the Charlotte Observer May 9, 2018.
“Get ready for Obamacare sticker shock”
“States across the country, including North Carolina, can expect similar proposed hikes in coming months. Obamacare sticker shock is coming, and it’s going to hit rural areas especially hard.”
“When Republicans repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate, they changed the economic viability of the Affordable Care Act, which counted on healthy people’s premiums defraying some of the cost of insuring the less than healthy. In addition, the Trump administration scrapped subsidies to insurers and gave healthy folks more reason to leave the exchanges by allowing insurers greater room to offer thinner policies that cost less money.”
” It will be an election issue in November, and voters should remember this: Obamacare needed tweaks, but it was working, despite what the president and Republicans have long claimed. Millions more Americans had health care coverage. That coverage included benefits that insurance companies largely didn’t offer before Obamacare. Also, insurance premiums were rising at a rate lower than the years before the Affordable Care Act was enacted.
Now, for many, those premiums are about to go way up, and insurers are being given more leeway to offer less. What’s old is new again. And it’s exactly what Republicans wanted.”
You notice right off that the Orwellian weasles state “get ready” to shift the narrative out of the past to the future.
“they changed the economic viability of the Affordable Care Act” It was never viable!
“Now, for many, those premiums are about to go way up” NOW???
The Greensboro News Record, predictably, repeats the big lie.
“ACA sticker shock is coming”
“For many, those premiums are about to go way up, and insurers will be able to offer less. And it’s exactly what Republicans wanted.”
As I recall, a repeal of Obamacare was what the Republicans wanted. The Democrats blocked it.

“This YouTube video reveals the hidden truth that Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the democrat congress are hiding from the American public.”
December 7, 2009.
“Another day, another study confirming that ObamaCare will increase the price of health insurance. The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association has found that premiums in the individual market will rise on average by 54% over the status quo, which translates into an extra $3,341 a year for families and $1,576 for singles. The White House denounced the report as a “sham” before it was even released, which shows how seriously it takes such concerns.”
March 16, 2012.
“The latest revelation, reported at The Hill, is that ObamaCare could cause up to 20 million Americans to lose their health care coverage. There is a “tremendous amount of uncertainty” in the forecast, which is just what our fragile Obamanized economy needs right now, but 20 million is the CBO’s worst-case estimate. Maybe it will only be 3 to 5 million people.

“Can we stop calling ObamaCare the Affordable Care Act now?”…Ron Meyer
“I just spoke with a young man a few minutes ago who attends Greensboro College, a private college in NC. He mentioned that his health care costs had just almost doubled. Recently, reported here, was a report that the UNC system, NC public colleges, had almost doubled the health care costs for students and the reason was provisions in Obamacare.”
“Health Insurance Costs Skyrocket For College Students Due To ObamaCare”
“Can we stop calling ObamaCare the Affordable Care Act now?
A Young America’s Foundation activist forwarded an email from the Vice President for Finance at his school, Guilford College (Greensboro, NC), informing him that, “For the 2012-13 academic year, the annual cost of the student health insurance is increasing from $668 to $1,179. This insurance premium has been charged to your student account.”
Why the increase? “Our student health insurance policy premium has been substantially increased due to changes required by federal regulations issued on March 16, 2012 under the Affordable Care Act.”
“Student healthcare choice has been replaced with expensive ObamaCare mandates.”
September 26, 2012.
“Premiums for employer-provided family coverage rose $3,065 — 24% — from 2008 to 2012, the Kaiser survey found. Even if you start counting in 2009, premiums have climbed $2,370.
What’s more, premiums climbed faster in Obama’s four years than they did in the previous four under President Bush, the survey data show.”

“However … health insurance rates and benefit coverage plan costs have continued to increase. As a result of those increases, county employees have experienced a pay decrease that has grown larger each year.”…Guilford County Interim Manager Sharisse Fuller
“The county has cut costs for the past two years by increasing co-pays,
deductible amounts and out-of-pocket maximums for employees.
“Over the last four years, no merit increases have been awarded to
Guilford County employees,” Fuller said Friday in an email. “However

“The nation’s big health insurers say they expect premiums — or the
cost for insurance coverage — to rise from 20 to 100 percent for
millions of people due to changes that will occur when key provisions
of the Affordable Care Act roll out in January 2014.

………10-4 on the Goebbel remark!!!!
CW thanks for the reminder. ….. eventually come to believe it”…Joseph Goebbels.
PS sorry I haven’t been around. I had a heart attack in April and a double by-pass. So I’m just now beginning to get some of my energy back.
You and “old sailor” have kept the home fires burning and safe and sound. Thanks to you both.
Glad you are ok.
…….glad to have you back. Heart attacks are always serious, and worse yet for those over 60. DO NOT GET STRESSED. I know it is hard to do, but watching the news these days is enough to stress a statue of George Patton. SO be watchful, and avoid stress. The days of THIS IS MY RIFLE………………are over, now we just say OH SH-T, and go about our business. Take care, and have a great day!
………..did you happen to watch the Levin show tonight? Gary Sinise was on and they discussed his foundation. He is heavily involved with our veterans, and their families. This also includes the children of those who were killed in action. This is something which I feel deeply about and hopefully you won’t be angered by my mentioning the foundation (garysinisefoundation.org) to which anyone can make contributions.
Gary Sinise is one of a group of Hollywood conservatives.
A good guy.
………..I have sent a contribution to them given the great work he is involved in. Probably one of the most heartfelt things his foundation is doing is helping the children of deceased soldiers to enjoy some of the trappings that children would have with a living father. The Sinise foundation along with American Airlines has taken these kids to see the Disneyland. There are tiny children and teenagers alike who have visited Disneyland. While there they have all bonded as a family. This is in part why I feel it personally. My hat is always off to the combat veterans who went only one direction. I FEEL IT INSIDE OF ME. Our military services is A BAND OF BROTHERS.
AND THIS MORNING…….
………..Our Embassy opened in Jerusalem. Yet on Fox this morning a DIZZY cheap looking blonde female WAS BLABBERING THAT NOTHING GOOD WILL EVER COME FROM MOVING THE EMBASSY. SHE WAS OBVIOUSLY A LIBERAL LUNATIC…….FAR TOO MANY OF THEM IN AMERICA.
Coot, welcome back and please take care of yourself!

First British Citizen Deported Under Trump Urges “Give Him A Chance”
…………we have learned that the SLIMY LITTLE so called lawyer who represents the PROSTITUTE received 8 million out of thin air, just before he agreed to take the so called case. This is now confirmation to even those who have less than half a brain that we are seeing another episode of the JUDGE MOORE SORT OF SICK,TWISTED LIBERAL BULL$HIT which will ultimately backfire upon the entire democratic party. For the few democrats who might entertain some thoughts of decency I STRONGLY ADVISE you to clean this sort of crap out of your domain if you expect to ever be respected once again in the world. Otherwise you will more than likely drown in the feces of the LIBERAL CESSPOOL.
………..yep he might have tried, but somehow he missed the chances to get legal. Being without funds is never helpful……but I am wondering why he didn’t plead his case before he was deported. I am sure he had such a chance……..but maybe not………. really sad!!!!! In reading his alleged text it is clear that he at least has the ability to use the language correctly. This is something that even many of our so called college grads aren’t capable of doing. So I would think that had he been given a chance he might well have convinced a court of his allegiance to America. At least he seemed to have a decent education in language. While the law is the law I tend to lean in his direction.
………….we are now seeing an increase in the Palestinian snotnoses at the Israeli border screaming their vile expletives as they throw their Molotov cocktails into Israel. This is being answered with live rifle fire from Israel………which Israel is more than justified in doing. This has resulted in the deaths of some really STUPID GOATHERDERS……..in addition it is likely that there will be more GOATHERDERS soon joining their predecessors in the ground. I read this morning that hundreds of Jewish US Army , and US Marine veterans are travelling to Israel and joining the Israeli Army to help with the defense of Israel. THREE CHEERS FOR OUR COMBAT VETS!!!!
AND IN RETROSPECT…….
…………the lady who made the remark about Senator McCain in PRIVATE had the right to expect it to remain PRIVATE………those people who are now jumping up and down demanding public apology need to take up their anger with the bastard who leaked the remark. She had a Constitutional right to say whatever she chose to say whether the McCain family likes it or not. If they can’t handle what she said then they should take a long walk on a short pier. As for a public apology, if I was in her shoes I would tell those demanding the apology to GO TO HELL, and/or take up their beef with the leaker. AGAIN WHAT SHE SAID WAS IN A PRIVATE SETTING, AND SHE HAD EVERY RIGHT TO EXPECT IT TO REMAIN PRIVATE.
………….the Soetoro appointed judge (Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Jackson) has refused to dismiss criminal charges against Paul Manafort in spite of the fact that the charges grew out of an illegal, and otherwise phony investigation against Manafort. Hopefully he will pursue his case to the SCOTUS. His Constitutional rights were violated flagrantly.
oldsailor85 | May 15, 2018 at 7:59 pm |
And who says the leaker knows what he/she is talking about??
We can’t say anything critical about John Mccain because he was a war hero?
Leaving aside the fact that many who served with him didn’t think he was a hero, perhaps we could look at another man in history who was a war hero.
“Benedict Arnold (1741-1801) was an early American HERO of the Revolutionary WAR (1775-83) who later became one of the most infamous traitors in U.S. history after he switched sides and fought for the British.”
—Benedict Arnold – American Revolution – HISTORY.com
………….right on the money! While I respect McCain for his Navy service, I find myself in disbelief that a commissioned Navy officer would perpetrate treason. Yet what else would it be when such a person HAQNDS A KNOWN FACTUALLY BANKPUPT DOCUMENT (DOSSIER) TO THE FBI……….THEN BRAGS HE WOULD DO IT AGAIN. THIS WOULD MAKE HIM AN ACCOMPLICE TO ATTEMPTED OVERTHROW OF A CONSTITUTIONALLY ELECTED POTUS……..AND A TRAITOR!
……THE ESCAPEE FROM THE HANOI HILTON PASSES I PERSONALLY WILL NOT FEEL ANY EMPATHY FOR HIM, OR REGRET FOR HIS DEMISE. I PERSONALLY LOOK UPON HIM AS A SNEAK.
………..I VISITED A WEBSITE WHICH FEATURED THE BARRY SOETORO STORY. ONE FACT THAT WAS PRESENTED BY THE WEBSITE IS THAT BARRY SOETORO RECIEVED FULLBRIGHT FOUNDATION FUNDING AS A FOREIGN STUDENT. THIS FACT PROVIDES ANOTHER CONFIRMATION THAT HE REGISTERED AT OCCIDENTAL AS A FOREIGN STUDENT, AND WAS NOT THEN, AND STILL IS NOT A US CITIZEN. YET A LOT OF AMERICANS SWALLOWED HIS HOPIE CHANGY CRAPOLA HOOK LINE AND SINKER. WHY HAS US ICE NOT YET DEPORTED HIM?
Oldsailor,, because it would make them look like racist and congress look like fools. Everyone in congress received a packet of the evidence against Mr. Obama and did nothing.
An Illinois school resource officer stopped an armed teenager at a high school this morning, according to the local police chief, who applauded the officer for saving “countless” lives.
When the 19-year-old suspect fired several shots this morning near a gym at Dixon High School, the school resource officer reported the incident to authorities and then confronted the gunman, Dixon police chief Steven Howell said at a news conference.
BREAKING!!! DOJ IG Report May Hit Tomorrow
Exposing the fraud!
NYT tries to get ahead of the bad news coming out with their operation hurricane story. Reveals that, yes, everything they’ve told us previously has been a lie, and
1 they were spying on trump tower and campaign
2 they inititated the spying before they ever talked to that aussie diplomat about popadop
3 they used the filthy lying dossier to get fisa warrants
They’re trying to get out ahead of the bad news so it won’t come as a shock to the public. And they’re attempting to persuade that it was a super secret operation that almost nobody knew about. ( which is just another great big giant lie)
Are these people ever going to be charged with the crimes they’ve committed and spend the rest of their lives in prison?
………….we can look for a LAST GASP and UNSUCCESFUL effort by the alleged deep state to bring an impeachment of Trump. It will appear out of left field, and there will more than likely be no forewarning of it. I believe that ATOM SNIFF will be leading a foaming at the mouth, howling, expletive screaming pack of lunatics who might even go completely rogue and attempt to assassinate President Trump. I personally think that anything , and everything is now on the table where they are concerned. Everybody needs to be extremely watchful. As I said the deep state backs are now to the wall, and their irrational minds will go over the edge if they are not shut down quickly by the feds. It is people like Clapper, Comey, Brennan, Holder, and the rest of the gang which includes the female black AG, and many subordinates. The live oak tree limbs are being pruned to accommodate lots of dangling decorations.
……….it is now clear that the DEEP STATE BACKS are to the wall. I now expect a LAST GASP EFFORT, by ATOM SNIFF who will be leading a pack of howling, expletive shouting, liberal lunatics, who might even attempt to assassinate our POTUS ON SITE. They now know the JIG IS UP, and their doom is imminent. The live oak trees are being pruned to accommodate LOTS of dangling decorations. Watch for ONE WAY TICKETS to be to foreign un extraditable countries to start selling like hotcakes. har har
……….there will be hundreds of California FRIENDS of the DEEP STATE CRIMINALS who will now collect behind them, and all of the RABID, FOAMING AT THE MOUTH LUNATICS, led by ATOM SNIFF will together converge upon the White House in an attempt to exact their INSANE vengeance upon President Trump.
……..what the DEEP STATE POS have attempted to do is to OVERTHROW A DULY LEGALLY ELECTED POTUS. This is called TREASON. ALL PERPETRATORS SHOULD FACE LIFE IN PRISON, OR THE DEATH PENALTY. THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST CRIME ANYONE CAN PERPETRATE. ALL INVOLVED SHOULD BE DEEMED TRAITORS, AND DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY.
……..and now the FOOTHILLS of the DC MOUNTAINS OF $HIT have finally come in contact with the fan. The mountains THEMSELVES are only inches away, and they too are sliding fast toward the fan.
………..to the upcoming Royal wedding………..while it might complicate how the monarchy thinks , and behaves, I think the marriage will ultimately be a good, and positive thing for both Britain, and America. The future of Britain might eventually depend more upon America than ever before. The two countries are united in spirit, and have been for a very long time. I believe Sir Winston Churchill was married to an American from the Roosevelt family. Of course Churchill was not Royalty. Yet this is the only difference. I suspect that many folks in both countries will always have a difference of opinion, but when PUSH COMES TO SHOVE America and Britain will be totally united.
Some folks in America probably do not agree with what I am saying. That is their right. I think there will always be people who disagree. That is one reason why America IS WHAT IT IS. Sadly there are some who think it must be their way or not at all……..and they do everything they can in an attempt to derail a good thing. Case in point………take a long look at America’s so called DEMOCRATIC PARTY. It has been turned in to a gang of thugs, some of whom now support such people as MS !3………what does that tell you? I am sure that people with brains the size of pinheads will WILDLY CHEER the MS 13 stinking a$$ed, animals. Animals are what they are by nature……..the pieces of MS 13 feces are what they are BY CHOICE……….ILLITERATE, PSYCHOPATHIC, CRIMINALS.
