Hundreds of Thousands of People Losing Health Insurance Due To ObamaCare...

Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.

The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010.  At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

[…]

An estimated 14 million people purchase their own coverage because they don’t get it through their jobs. Calls to insurers in several states showed that many have sent notices.

Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state.  Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.

People with preexisting conditions are losing their health insurance thanks to ObamaCare.  Imagine that.

Great job as always, Obama supporters.  You slow thinking mutts.

In 2011….

…Occupy Wall Street (or whatever they called themselves that day) climbed out of the gutters and began infecting parks, capitals and other places en mass.

The media celebrated the lice ridden malcontents and touted them in headlines and magazine covers as heroes and patriotic young Americans.

Despite the rash of arrests, incidents of rape, child abuse, drug use and the covering up of crimes, the media proudly continued to blow the trumpet for them, making their cause a nation wide, if not world wide, clarion call for justice and fairness.  Nancy Pelosi even went so far as to publicly say, “God bless them for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused.”

When protesters urinated or defecated on the steps of banking institutions or police cars, the media hailed them as champions of the downtrodden and valiant warriors who stood up to “the man”.

The media kept up their worship of the unruly and discontented until their failed crusade gasped it last useless breath.

Fast forward two years.

A failed President reels in amateurish indecision. Unwillingly or incapable of providing leadership to the nation, and Congress specifically, the inexperienced rookie falls back on the only tactics he has ever known: bullying, threats and forcing pain on people less powerful than him.

In a third world effort to exert his dominance, the paper tiger unleashes a series of punishments upon an unwitting country. Knowing that aging veterans are scheduled to visit a memorial that they fought for, and a resting place for the memory of their brothers who died on our behalf, the tantrum throwing man-child slammed the gates closed in their faces.

What the Emperor with no clothes did not realize, (and how could he since he had never known or spent a day serving his country), was that these elderly men had looked death in the face, stared down the barrel of smoking machine guns, had smelt the cordite of smoke and gunpowder while their faces dripped with the coppery scent of their friends’ blood.  Gates were not going to stop this possibly final tribute and the veterans pushed through.

Nary a peep was made from the media.  Talk through the halls of Capital Hill was little more than a whisper of how a gang of old men dared to defy the rule makers of the land.

Not to be bested, Lord Farquaad had the barriers re-erected and reinforced with wire, ironically, making the Memorial more reminiscent of Nazi Germany than 21st Century America.

Then came the Vietnam Memorial veterans. More warriors that stood up and said that the memory of their fallen brethren was more important than cheap political points made by impotent men.

Learning from the ‘mistake’ they made with the older veterans, the administration of weak willed men hiding behind curtains decided to send a message.

Responding with dictatorial greed, the posers ordered their men, who obviously forgot the oath they took upon assuming their positions, to take these men into custody. Arrest them and lock them away for nothing more serious than trespassing which, in a sane world, would have meant no more than a citation and a request to leave the area.

But this was no longer a sane world and a message had to be sent…so they were rounded up, cuffed and placed in a wagon to be herded off.

And where was the media to stand for the courage and just actions of these men who had fought for their country and were, once again, standing for the right of men to be free?

Anywhere but there.

And this is what it’s like to now ‘live’ in the country once known as ‘the home of the free’.

This is disgusting…
Today the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, who were abandoned by their government and left to die in Benghazi, were scheduled to speak in front of a House Hearing on Benghazi.
In a complete show of disrespect, and displaying an overwhelming amount of apathy and disregard for the feelings of these parents and the sacrifice their sons made, every House Democrat except two of them….every damn one but two!!….walked off the House floor just as the parents entered to speak.
They turned their backs on grieving parents of American heroes and walked out!!
Here are the cowards who spit on the graves of men who dedicated and gave their lives to their country:
Carolyn Maloney Danny Davis Eleanor Holmes Norton Gerald E. Connolly Jim Cooper John Tierney Mark Pocan Matt Cartwright Michelle Lujan Grisham Peter Welch Stephen Lynch Steven Horsford Tammy Duckworth Tony Cardenas William Lacy Clay
I have no words for cowards like these.
May their souls rot in Hell for all eternity.

Obama's Syrian Allies Slit Throat of Christian Man Who Refused To Convert To Islam, Taunt Fiance, “Jesus Didn’t Come To Save Him”…

Obama’s allies continue to show why we fight. Now if only we had leaders who had the moral courage to do so instead of spitting on the graves of Americans who have died in this struggle by supporting and arming the very same savages who want to kill us.

Obama's Syrian Rebel Allies Murder Chrstians After Taking Village...

Rebels including al-Qaida-linked fighters gained control of a Christian village northeast of the capital Damascus, Syrian activists said Sunday. Government media provided a dramatically different account of the battle suggesting regime forces were winning.

It was impossible to independently verify the reports from Maaloula, a scenic mountain community known for being one of the few places in the world where residents still speak the ancient Middle Eastern language of Aramaic. The village is on a UNESCO list of tentative world heritage sites.

The rebel advance into the area this week was spearheaded by Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front, exacerbating fears among Syrians and religious minorities about the role played by Islamic extremists within the rebel ranks.

A Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of them sporting beards and shouting God is great, attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village overnight.

“They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village,” said the resident, reached by telephone from neighboring Jordan. “So many people fled the village for safety.”

In case anyone was still curious which side Obama is rooting for.

John Kerry….

…lies about US troops committing atrocities in Vietnam and says US troops in Iraq are like Genghis Khan and US Marines were murdering and terrorizing women and children.

Then, after being shown a video of the Syrian “rebels” executing and beheading prisoners, before cutting out their insides and eating their bodily organs, in addition to all of the other vicious actions they’ve done, their links to al Qaeda and the jihadist comments they’ve made, he has the gall to call them “moderates” and continue to support a plan for US troops to help them take over the country.

Unbelievable.

Obama claims…

…that there will be ‘no boots on the ground’ in any action taken against Syria, yet John Kerry said this morning that he did not want to take that option off the table in case chemical weapons stashes needed to be secured.

Do these two dolts ever talk to each other before running their mouths in public?
