…what a load of bullshit.
Takes about 74 seconds to show these outright lies.

…Judge Jeannine Pirro that is.
She goes to town on the VA issue and the Bergdahl issue. She doesn’t mince words.

…it’s a smash!

…if you think Obamacare is a good idea, you’re not paying attention.

Or you’re sucking up the main stream media’s horseshit.

The majority of doctors do NOT support Obamacare.

The AMA doesn’t represent the majority of doctors.

In fact, 70% disagree with the AMA.

Obama and the so called media, failed to mention that part.

And there’s more…

…in any way the politicians can get away with.

Are you wondering what this Administration has done to the military? How about what they’ve done to benefits for the military?

Tricare, tuition assistance and many other programs that are used for retention and quality of life get stripped from the military whenever there is a budget crisis.

Instead of cutting the waste out of the budget as they should, they cut the very programs that are meant to retain soldiers in the military.

Our Armed Forces are heading towards a hollow shell that will be rife with morale and discipline issues very soon if not already.

Promises made are seldom kept when it comes to the military, veterans and retirees.

The voters in this country are supposed to look out for the military.

Politicians just see it as low hanging fruit in Washington and will hack away at it until it is no longer a viable force.

Recently, my wife and I received our letters. They were signed by W. Bryan Gamble, M.D., FACS, Brigadier General, US Army. His signature block identifies him as the Deputy Director of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Health Affairs.

“Beginning October 1, 2013, TRICARE Prime [our healthcare insurance] coverage will not be available where you currently live…”

The letter tells us that we may still be able to enroll in TRICARE Prime at a military treatment facility. I mention that for the benefit of our Congressional representatives from the state of West Virginia who should know that there are no military treatment facilities in our state. I do not recall any of them raising a ruckus.

The General, whose letter was signed with an illegible electronic pen scribble, also instructed us:

“As you prepare for this change, you should look carefully at your health care options, such as using TRICARE Standard and TRICARE Extra or obtaining insurance through a spouse or an employer.” [because the country you and your family served is finished with you]

All of those options are more expensive than TRICARE Prime. Not to worry about my wife or me. We will survive. We always have. We left the military with about the same as we had when we entered it. Enlisted military families who serve a lifetime in uniform do not have much opportunity to build wealth. Our pensions are never enough to live on, so regardless of the years in uniform work after service remains a necessity. Health care coverage offered through TRICARE Prime is a significant retirement benefit. There will be no increase in pensions to make up for the added costs. Some of us caught in the window where work is ended and age 65 has not yet arrived must just suck it up.

…up front. I’m easily amused.

…will be steep indeed. We will be paying for this through the nose until it is repealed. It is an obvious fail from the word “go”.

What has ever worked as intended when the government is involved? I can’t think of anything.

The failure of this Administration is epic. It will only get worse the longer the GOP keeps cutting deals with crazy. Morons.

The Costs and Consequences of Obamacare – Reason.com.

“We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it,” said Nancy Pelosi during the debate over Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act passed, and Americans are now finding out. It’s not a pretty picture.

Take employment. “Medical device makers in Massachusetts and elsewhere are warning of potential job losses,” reports The Boston Globe, because of a 2.3-percent tax on medical devices imposed by law. Even liberal-heartthrob-turned-Massachusetts-Senator Elizabeth Warren, a supporter of the law, says repealing that tax is “essential.” (To paraphrase a cliché, if it saves one job – hers – it’s worth it.)

But the ACA’s effect on jobs goes well beyond medical device makers. Reporting on January’s employment numbers, Investor’s Business Daily notes an “apparent shift to part-time work ahead of a key Obamacare deadline.” Although more people are working in the retail sector, they are working fewer hours per person – now just a hair above 30 hours a week. “A similar trend,” IBD notes, “showed up in leisure and hospitality.”
