This is from a post of mine from 2013, but deserves reporting. We..our beloved country, is in hot water on multiple fronts due to the Liberal Press not reporting all the facts so we may make our OWN choices for ourselves and our families. Matt Reed and the Florida Yesterday is among those that chose deceit over the absolute truth. they chose themselves the arbiters of what information we would receive..or as Matt once told me, “we print what AP sends us”.
This morning, I read Matt Reed’s column; Now own up to the costs, Mr. President.
Nice luke warm article. Matt, along with the blessing of Ex. Editor, Bob Stover, by under reporting, you allowed the abuses, lies, cronyism and distortions of our Marxist president to continue. Matt and Bob, Obama didn’t “mislead” us; HE LIED!
He lied about his true intentions, and he has done that time and again. This is not the first time nor will it be the last time he will lie, because he has a fawning press that will see that the first 1/2 white president succeeds.
Good luck if you actually think that “Short of that, I’d settle for honesty”. President Obama is a pathological liar and will never be honest with his hidden agendas. “. How do I know that; quite simply because to make liberalism, (Marxism) palatable, a lie must be told. Why must he lie? Because if people knew the true intentions of a Marxist/liberal is the freedom destroying Nationalized Socialism of America, which is Obama’s stated goal, they would reject it each and every time. So to keep this Marxist agenda moving forward, the lie must be propagated and dispersed by the MSM(Main Stream Media), aka florida Today. It was because advancing the leftist agenda, no matter how, is all that matters — and they lie to carry out that goal.
So as I see it, Matt and Bob have been doing their MSM duties by telling us how great Obama, Obamacare, out of control spending, etc is. Recently, Matt lectured us with, and I paraphrase, “it will cost only a little more” and “quit fighting Obamacare”. I especially loved the article painting our “moderate” comrade Bill Nelson as being our savior. What is a moderate..simply put, it is a Liberal that lacks the guts to admit he is a liberal. All the while, Matt and Bob are implicit in not defending the public interest by not providing us with all the facts so we can make informed, credible choices based on the facts…not on how we are told to feel. Do you think Obama would have been elected the first time or reelected if he and his intentions were throughly vetted? Thanks Matt and Bob. Obama is trying to set himself up as a victim, as an outsider, fighting the fight for us “simple folk”, and all the while directing those hand-picked people, through Marxist mandates and executive orders, that are inflicting harm on Americans . If media honesty,( if there is such a thing anymore) had been working the past seven years, Obama would not have been elected, much less reelected.
Matt, you ask; “Where were the Republicans? Scaring seniors about “death panels” and “rationing” and warning the IRS could jail uninsured people.”
Odd that your article is about Obama “misleading” us, yet you still have time to take a shot at those evil Republicans. Remember, not one Republican voted for Obamacare.
Matt, may I ask you the same question? Where were you in 2007, when we began asking for a full vetting of then Senator Obama; all for nothing. Where were you in 2009 when I emailed you several times, weeks ahead and called you from the Melbourne airport as then 9-year-old Spencer and I headed out to DC for the 9/12 March. I had been begging you to get the word out about the upcoming 9/12/09 March? Remember, the Tea Party came to life because of the crushing debt Comrade Obama was foisting on future generations and because of Obamacare? If the media had told the truth then — what they knew then and know now, that we were not gonna be able to keep our doctor,health plan etc. — can you imagine the outcome? According to the head of the Washington Parks Service, an estimated 1 million Patriots went to Washington D.C. sounding the alarm on September 12, 2009. We were protesting the out of control Obama administration implementation of Marxist (Cloward and Piven) agenda of social justice and redistribution of wealth and the adjacent suppression of Freedom. US Today , The Washington Post, NY Times, Florida Today and most other MSM smothered the story. Where were you and Bob?
“Where were the Republicans?- Right here….
Washington, May 27, 2010
Republicans Warn Families, Employers About ObamaCare’s True Costs;
Today, the House Republican Health Solutions Working Group is holding a forum on the true costs to families and employers of the Democrats’ new health care law. Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement.
The Caucus of Conservative House Republicans
“In their headlong rush to pass a bill, Democrats failed to consider its broader implications for jobs and the economy,” said Chairman Price. “According to a recent study, a stunning 90 percent of employers expect ObamaCare to increase their costs. And with 17 percent of the workforce underemployed or out of work altogether, Democrats are sending employers all the wrong signals. Small businesses are America’s most prolific job-creators, yet Democrats gave little thought to how ObamaCare would impact this vital sector of our economy. Instead of encouraging job growth and better salaries, the new law will push many small businesses to keep wages low and have fewer employees. The true costs of ObamaCare extend well beyond the job market. By handing control to Washington, this law undermines the doctor-patient relationship, the very foundation of good health care. Medical decisions should be made by patients and families in consultation with their doctor. As a physician, I know that interference from Washington does not improve health care; it’s actually one of the greatest obstacles. Republicans have continually warned about the true costs of the Democrats’ policies since the beginning of this debate. ObamaCare must be repealed and immediately replaced with patient-centered reforms consistent with a healthy economy.”
“Scaring seniors about “death panels” and “rationing”
Never the less, as far as scaring seniors, of which I am; according to the CBO and others, the only real way to contain costs of this “free” healthcare mandate, is to ration(withhold) treatment. Rationing will be the pervue of a panel of unelected members, appointed by the (Health and Human Services) HHS Secretary. The panel, by not authorizing treatment to an individual, based on health or age will be the greatest tool to cut costs.
“warning the IRS could jail uninsured people.”
I refer you to the US TODAY, Oct 29,2013, which states “The IRS could deduct the penalty amount from any tax refund you’re due.” No jail…so far, just taking your money and that’s no big deal..right Matt? Reminds me of the way the IRS treated Conservative 501(c)(3) corporation applications.Just taking Freedom of Speech; that’s no big deal either..right Matt?
THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG
“It turns out that in an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register,the Federal Governments official journal, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market. But Obamacare’s disruption of the existing health insurance market—a disruption codified in law, and known to the administration—is only just beginning. And it’s far broader than recent media coverage has implied.”
Obama Officials In 2010: 93 Million Americans Will Be
Unable To Keep Their Health Plans Under Obamacare
“If you read the Affordable Care Act when it was passed, you knew that it was dishonest for President Obama to claim that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” as he did—and continues to do—on countless occasions. And we now know that the administration knew this all along. It turns out that in an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market.”
Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance
http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/29/21222195-obama-administration-knew-millions-could-not-keep-their-health-insurance?lite-Lisa Myers and Hanna Rappleye of NBC News
NBC News reported: “Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
Why the Unions Fell Silent on Their ObamaCare Outrage
Additionally, while I am at it, here is more news made possible by direct action of Comrade Obama. How about the “collective bargaining” carve out for his union buddies? Yep, it is worded so that “collective bargaining, “i.e. union polices are not subject to the same rules as the rest of us. “Those plans are ‘grandfathered.’ According to Betsy McCaughey, former Lt. Gov. of New York;.. “But following that guarantee is a list of costly requirements that make it difficult for insurers to keep offering your plan. It gets worse,” she says. “Union plans were ‘grandfathered’ with none of those fine-print tricks and exceptions” that Obama then imposed on the insurance companies. [Sec. 1251(d)]Pg.162-ACA
Time and again,we have seen the results of NATIONALIZED SOCIALISM. A “charismatic” leader arrives on the scene during turmoil, promising everything for everyone. Quietly, over a relatively short period, he/she removes the freedoms of the people. This is an oversimplification of what happened in the Viamar Republic, (Germany) and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, also known as the NAZI.
I must give credit where credit is due. I agree with Matt that asking for price lists and not restricting buying healthcare only to the state you live in is a good thing. We should be able to buy all types of insurance across state lines. Do you know why I support those ideas? Because those 2 simple ideas are market based solutions(Capitalism) that allow the buyer, me and you , the freedom to vote with our wallets and our feet. I will go where the best deal is. Socialism does not allow that for those in control lose that control by the freedom of choice.
REMEMBER, NATIONALIZED SOCIALISM IS HIS GOAL!
