(NY Daily News) Disingenuous: After Democrats took beating in midterm elections, now NY Liberal Sen Chuckie Schumer says, ObamaCare was a big mistake.

Will Schumer be soliciting enough Democrat votes in the new Republican led Senate in 2015 to override a presidential veto to repeal ObamaCare?

Obama Lies to Us Again About ‘Executive Amnesty’ California Illegals Eligible for ObamaCare/Medi-Cal

Obama Executive Amnesty

(KQED) Unlike George Washington that ‘could never tell a lie’ can Obama actually ever tell the truth?

On Thursday night, President Obama said “If you’ve been in America for more than five years…if you register, pass a criminal background check and are willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you’ll be able to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation–This deal does not apply to anyone that has come to this country recently…It does not grant citizenship or the the right to stay here permanently or offer the same benefits that citizens receive only Congress can do that.”

Its another big, huge Obama lie–California’s undocumented/illegal aliens who are eligible for Obama’s deferred deportation executive amnesty are expected to be eligible for Medi-Cal (the federal/state health insurance program for the poor) as long as they meet income guidelines says Gabrielle Lessard, a health policy attorney with the Los Angeles  office of the Natl Immigration Law Center.

“They’ll be in the same situation as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”(DACA) Obama’s 2012 policy for undocumented immigrants who had come to the United States as children.

While most states do not extend Medicaid (Medi-Cal) benefits to DACA immigrants, California does.

What pay tell is Obama’s Executive Amnesty going to cost the taxpayers?

Liar, Liar…Obama on ACA Architect ‘Stupid Americans’ Jonathan Gruber: He’s “Some Adviser That Never Worked on Our Staff”

(The Daily Signal) In an attempt to distance himself from Jonathan Gruber, President Obama has been attempting to downplay the ObamaCare ‘Stupid Americans’ Architect Gruber’s role in crafting his signature legislative achievement.

During a presser at the G-20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia Obama claimed that Gruber was just “some adviser that never worked on our staff.”

Over the past week however 6 videos have surfaced of Gruber one of the key ObamaCare architects, discussing how Senate Democrats and the Obama Administration “tortured” the language of the ACA to secure its passage.

Gruber White House Visitors LogFor someone that ‘never worked on our staff’ Gruber in-fact visited the White House more than a dozen times according to visitor logs and at least one of those meetings occurred in the Oval Office.

Additionally about Gruber being just “some adviser” was paid according to contracts with HHS some $400,000 of taxpayers money.

Where can I sign up for a $400K contract with HHS which no one knows who I am and I can advise the White House about a key piece of legislation without really doing so?

Covered California Premiums to Spike in 2015

ObamaCare LiesFlashback: Remember When Obama Claimed the ACA Would Save Families $2500 a Year?

(LA Times) Covered California today announced that ObamaCare premiums will spike 4.2% on average next year, while other consumers may experience double digit rate hikes–so much for Obama’s promise to slash health care premiums.

California Residents Surprised by Medical Bills & 60% of Americans in Smaller States Report Increase in Healthcare Costs

ObamaCare CostsObama Administration Lies to the American People About Healthcare Costs –Image: White House@Twitter

(California Healthline) A new survey by TransUnion Healthcare concludes that 62% of California residents are surprised about their out of pocket costs.

Overall, 80% wanted to receive cost estimates but unfortunately according to Payers & Providers few receive any meaningful costs estimates in advance.

Flashback: Remember when Obama/Biden claimed that your healthcare costs “will go down by as much as $2500 per year.”

Nationally in smaller states, 60% of Americans particularly those in the West are reporting an increased in  healthcare costs.

IRS Bruiser to Job Creators: Pay $100 Penalty Per Day $36,500 Year for Each Employee Dumped into ObamaCare Exchange

ObamaCare IRS

(NY Times) Many employers (job creators) thought they may be able to hold on to employees by shifting the costs of health insurance premiums to them by providing their workers with a tax-free contribution so they could buy their own health insurance wherever they may please–what could be wrong with that?

Not so fast according to the Obama Administration which has nixed this plan in a new IRS ruling that forbids employers from dumping their employees into the ObamaCare exchanges by levying a $100 a day fine ($36,500 annually) for every employee that is provided money to purchase their own health insurance–thereby raising the costs on businesses to actually maintain employment levels.

“For decades, employers have been assisting employees by reimbursing them for their health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs,” said Andrew Biebl, a partner in CliftonLarsonAllen, LLPAccountants based in Milwaukee. “The new federal ruling eliminates many of these arrangements by imposing an unusual punitive penalty.”

Raising the costs and regulations on American businesses does not incentivize companies to add more jobs or increase wages, according to a recent Congressional Budget Office report on ObamaCare which confirmed what many of us had already believed, that the ACA is having a tremendously negative impact on economic growth.

Besides the latest IRS regulatory burden that ObamaCare will have on economic growth and opportunity, the Natl Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation estimates the ObamaCare ‘Health Ins Tax’ will result in a further reduction in private sector employment of 152,000 to 286,000 jobs, with California being hit the hardest and a loss of between $20 to $33 Billion of economic activity by 2022

When even the Federal Reserve admits that ObamaCare is hurting the economy, its long past time that it must be repealed.

Doctor Delays at VA Hosp’s in the Los Angeles Area Forces Veterans to Seek Medical Care Elsewhere

VA ScandalAmerica’s Heroes Didn’t Forget Us, Why Does the VA Forget/Neglect Them? –Image:Katy Mac & Ernie@Twitter

(LA Register) Sarah La Brada was terrified and confused after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 4 yrs ago–she decided to leave her position as an Army Specialist and move with her husband to live with family near Long Beach, then 7 months pregnant and out of a job.

La Brada turned to the VA Long Beach Healthcare System but learned the hospital only has one Neurologist on staff–wait times took up to a month. La Brada, exited the VA (single payer) health care system which is free, opting instead for private health care.

“I have a 21.5 month old and I want to see my little boy grow up,” said La Brada, I want to be able to play with him.”

American Heroes who use the Los Angeles & Long Beach VA Hospitals say the wait time to see their primary care physicians can be as long as 90 days, forcing some of them to line up their own health care outside the federal system.

Appointments with Specialists can take as long as 8 mos Veterans say.

Is this what Americans can expect from ObamaCare?

Yesterday I wrote here about Donald Douglass delayed treatment to remove a cancerous growth on his forehead at the Seattle VA in September 2011 which resulted in his death.

  • Navy Veteran Allen Hoffman aged 74 of Woodland Hills says that months of delays at the Los Angeles VA nearly cost him his life. In January 2013 a doctor noticed that his prostate specific antigen marker for cancer was elevated. “They ignored it and pushed around follow up appointments,” Hoffman said.

In November, Hoffman’s kidneys failed and he was rushed to the VA Emergency Dept, at that point his PSA score had skyrocketed to 700, doctors diagnosed him with prostate cancer but said that it had been caught too late and that he wan’t expected to live past June–his wife began looking at funeral/burial options.

  •  Don Rico of Huntington Beach served in the Navy from 1957 to 1960 and volunteers at the VA Long Beach directing patients around the sprawling hospital complex but he like La Brada, also goes elsewhere for his own health care. “The wait to see your primary care doctor–the standard is 90 days,” said Rico. “That’s the general, I don’t know what it would be if I had a specialty situation…I’m covered off site, I see my own doctor.”
  • Mike Escarcido a Vietnam era Marine from Huntington Beach is being treated for glaucoma, diabetes and PTSD at the Long Beach VA, he said getting an appointment at a specialty clinic can take up to 8 months. “It takes so long to be seen—7 to 8 months down the line…You need to be seen with more frequency than every 6 months,” Escarcido said.

VA Scandal Isn't About Money

As soon as this latest Obama scandal broke Democrats and many of the Liberal Lefty dinosaur media blamed Republicans for budget shortfalls as the reason for the delays in treatment at the Veterans Administration.

Sen Jay Rockefeller, D-West Virgina, argued that the main cause of the delay is money, “If the VA doesn’t have enough doctors to see these patients, then these problems are a result of a lack of funding.”

NBC News Jim Miklaszewski argued the same point on Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press’ saying, “You have a VA that is overwhelmed and under-resourced…There’s just not enough money right now in the federal government to fix it.”

“That may sound good and it would seem to make sense,” writes Investors Business Daily “but its far from true.”

The VA’s budget has been exploding even as the number of Veterans, steadily declines–from 2000 to 2013 outlays nearly tripled while the population of Veterans declined by 4.3 million.

When is Obama finally going to put on some big boy pants and begin accepting responsibility for his failures?

How much longer will the dinosaur media continue to run cover for Obama before they finally do their job and expose the malfeasance and lack of accountability of Obama and his administration?

ObamaCare May Pick Your Doctor Too, How Is That Govt Mandated Health Care Working Out For You?

ObamaCare AMAEveryone Remembers Obama’s “Lie of the Year”

(HT Health/AP) Some consumers who bought health insurance under ObamaCare are experiencing ‘buyers remorse’ after realizing their longtime physicians are not accepting the new health care plans.

Before ObamaCare took effect, experts warned that narrow networks could impact patients access to health care especially in cheaper plans. Now with insurance cards in hand, consumers are finding their access limited across all price ranges–sometimes even after they were told their plan would include their current doctor.

Surprise–Surprise…As expected, one ObamaCare Lie after another.

Flashback Remember this Zinger: Obama claimed that health insurance premiums for a family would be $2500 lower by the end of his first term but according to the Wall Street Journal they were actually $3000 higher by January, 2013 or a spread of $5500 for a family.

On the 28 March, I wrote here thanks to ObamaCare, most cancer treatment centers are off limits too but there is a ‘silver lining’ in all of this should one believe what Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claims:
