Don’t believe the charge made by establishment Republicans that the efforts of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party to delay or defund Obamacare prevented the mainstream media from reporting the failures of Obamacare.
Sen. Cruz put the focus on the utter devastation already being inflicted on the American economy and health care system.
In the coming months it will be abundantly clear to voters that Senator Cruz was correct in trying to mitigate the destruction unleashed by Obamacare.
The establishment Republicans and their political consultants, content with feeding off crumbs from the Democrat table, will reap the political whirlwind with their Democrat “friends.”
President Obama is expected to name an Obamacare Enrollment Czar today at a White House ceremony. The leading candidate is one of the two individuals the White House and mainstream media have located who has actually been able to enroll in Obamacare in the three weeks since Obamacare was unveiled. It is hoped that the Enrollee/Czar will somehow be able to help enroll at least a few other people in Obama’s signature achievement before it collapses.

Now that the shutdown/debt limit “diversion” is over (for now) the mainstream media outlets can focus on the failure of the Obamacare launch and its failure to live up to Obama’s repeated promises.
How about demanding to know the actual numbers of people who have purchased an Obamacare policy? How about demanding that rate schedules and/or policy prices of a publicly-financed program be fully accessible to the public and not only to those who have registered by giving social security numbers and financial information?
Mainstream media is not interested? Didn’t think so.
The theme common to Democrat legislative, executive, judicial and electoral policies is to draw as many people as possible into local, state and federal government entitlement and benefit programs. But not only that. Obamacare, and other such programs, are especially important in order to accomplish registration of every single potential Democrat voter (“entitlement-voters”) with the government.
The danger is not that Democrats are compiling government-funded databases of people who don’t want to be on a government database, it’s that they are using taxpayer funds to compile databases of entitlement-voters to expand and solidify Democrat political power.
What will follow entitlement-voter registration will be required notification to those on government databases to register to vote and to show up at the polls to vote. Democrats tell us, after all, that we want everyone eligible to vote to exercise this critical right. This is happening already.
The next step is to provide for online voting, over an extended period of time each voting cycle, so that not one vote is missed. Voting will become a year-round process. Because, we are told, it is important that everyone actually vote. Of course, entitlement-voter databases such as the one created for Obamacare will be used to contact voters and to insure that they do vote.
And will they vote for a candidate who suggests small or no increases in benefits or for a candidate who favors large increases in benefits to even out inequality and promote fairness? Entitlement-voters’ benefits will depend on the answer.
Former New York State Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey reports that taxpayers will spend billions to fund permanent Obamacare implementation and outreach programs which will not only sign up potential Obamacare subscribers but will also register the uninsured to vote (as Democrats of course) and enroll them in any other available welfare programs.
Of course, the outreach will be done by reliable Democrat voter recruiters like the NAACP, SEIU and AFL-CIO, among others.
Who doubts that the Schumer/Rubio Amnesty bill includes similar outreach programs designed to draw illegal immigrants and their friends and families “out of the shadows” and into the taxpayer-funded, Democrat-voting welfare complex?
Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.
The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.
If the issue isn’t resolved, and massive numbers of lawmakers and aides bolt, many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain just as Congress tackles a slew of weighty issues — like fights over the Tax Code and immigration reform.
“As a metaphor for big government, it is hard to top the Justice Department’s seizing of journalists’ phone records from The Associated Press.
Unless, of course, you think the best example is the Internal Revenue Service turning the screws on groups it viewed as conservative and, therefore, unworthy of fair treatment.
Or maybe the winner is the sneaky spreading of ObamaCare’s tentacles, with insurance companies now predicting the law will drive up the cost of individual premiums by as much as 400 percent.
There are no losers in this race to the bottom — except the American people. It is tempting to ask whether they’ve had enough Hope & Change, but the question is premature. With 44 months to go in the reign of the Great Mistake, the gods are not done punishing us.”
“SEN. RAND PAUL: I am worried that the bill before us won’t pass. It may pass the Senate, may not pass the House. I want to be constructive in making the bill strong enough that conservatives, myself included, conservative Republicans in the House will vote for this because I think immigration reform is something we should do.
In this bill I am worried, though, and this is similar to what Senator [Ron] Johnson said, that it says, well, you have to have a plan to build a fence, but you don’t have to build a fence. And if you don’t have a plan to build a fence, then you get a commission. I don’t know what happens if the commission doesn’t do anything. That’s the story of Washington around here.
To me, it’s a little bit like Obamacare. And I hate to bring that up, but 1,800 references to the secretary shall at a later date decide things. We don’t write bills around here. We should write the bill. We should write the plan. We should do these things to secure the border whether it be fence, entry, exit, we should write it, not delegate it. What’s going to happen in five years if they don’t do their job — maybe not even them, maybe somebody else who doesn’t do their job in five years, and the border is not secured? We will be blamed for the next 10 million that come here illegally. (Senate Homeland Security Committee Hearing, May 7, 2013)”
