Leftist Incompetence Update: Kathleen Sebelius Can’t Even Get Her Farewell Address Right (Video)

A Fitting End To A Disastrous Reign… Sebelius Loses Page To Her Farewell Speech – Gateway Pundit

A Fitting End to a Disastrous Reign –

Today outside the White House Kathleen Sebelius bid farewell to the president, officials and guests after resigning as head of Health and Human Services. And, as she bid farewell, she looked down at her notes and told the audience,

Unfortunately, a page is missing.”

And with that she departed the Rose Garden for the last time.

Farewell, Kathleen Sebelius. Better luck in your next endeavor.

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is…….

Dana Milbank, who proves that stupid should hurt

Oh of course, Holder is Black that is the reason the GOP is so hard on him. Milbank misses, deliberately no doubt, how tough the GOP has been on Lois Lerner, who is White, and yes, the GOP has been tough on Sebelius as well. I swear, MSNBS guests are so robotic, they are like those old dolls with the pull strings on the back. Pull the string and the Milbank doll will say RAAAAACIST. Come to think of it, so will the Chris Matthews doll. Of course, the Matthews  doll will also say “another shot, please, make it a double”

Lying Sack O’ Crap Kathleen Sebelius Resigns As HHS Secretary

Healthcare.gov Fumbler Kathleen Sebelius Resigns As Secretary Of HHS – Independent Journal Review

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius has announced her resignation.

.

.
Sebelius was appointed by President Obama to manage the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act, and her tenure has been marred with problems and frustration.

The President is set to nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, director of the Office of Management and Budget, as her replacement.

UPDATE: RNC Chairman Reince Preibus released the following statement:

Secretary Sebelius oversaw a disastrous rollout of ObamaCare, but anyone can see that there are more problems on the way. The next HHS Secretary will inherit a mess—Americans facing rising costs, families losing their doctors, and an economy weighed down by intrusive regulations. No matter who is in charge of HHS, ObamaCare will continue to be a disaster and will continue to hurt hardworking Americans. It’s time for President Obama to admit that Democrats’ signature law is a failure and heed Republican calls for patient-centered healthcare reform.”

Charles Johnson makes the full transition from somebody to degenerate asshole

I do not know Jim Hoft, of Gateway Pundit, but, I have always been a fan of his passion and his work, so now that he is having his health insurance cancelled, Thanks to Obamacare. I feel for him, especially since his recent health issues.

The Blaze reported:

Well-known conservative blogger Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit suffered terrifying health issues roughly three months ago.

“I became very sick with what I thought was a cold,” he wrote in a candid post earlier this week. “After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.”

Hoft appeared on the Glenn Beck Program Friday with guest host Dana Loesch, explaining how he has now become one of the millions (so far) to lose their health insurance in the aftermath of the Affordable Care Act.

“I get this notification that I’m going to lose my insurance,” he said. “This insurance that I bought, that I purchased, and I was paying a good premium, (and) covered most everything.”

Hoft, who is still in a wheelchair, said he has a number of “major surgeries” in the near future and was “very pleased” with his insurance of choice.

“So to get this news on top of my recovery, on top of trying to make a living, has been obviously a very difficult thing to take on at this time,” he said, the emotion clear in his voice.

Hoft has written about Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ assertion that people who have lost their insurance are “thrilled” with the options they have available to them, and on Friday he repeated his message that she can “go to hell” because that is “absolutely not true.”

Ah the wonders of Socialism, taking from those that have insurance, and are happy with it, in the name of helping those that cannot afford insurance attain insurance. Does that make sense to anyone, on any level? Now Jim has to put up with hateful attacks like this one

Leftists don’t like it when you speak out against their heartless, failed socialism.

This came in the email from Dan Brown in Bluefield, WV
“Pundit dies slowly and in great pain- 200 million Americans celebrate”

Then there is Charles Johnson, who apparently takes joy in deriding a sick man who has lost had his health insurance taken away. RS McCain alerts us to the latest from miscreant Charles Johnson

Jim Hoft is one of millions who are losing their insurance because of ObamaCare’s centralized regulatory scheme. By substituting government mandates for the risk-based business decisions of insurers, ObamaCare effectively abolishes certain insurance plans and in other cases — including Jim Hoft’s — drives insurers out of certain markets.

These problems were entirely predictable and were, in fact, predicted by opponents of ObamaCare, but the media never questioned Obama’s repeated promise, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” — nowrecognized as The Lie of the Year.

For some reason I’ve never understood, Jim Hoft has always been hated by Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, one of whose ignorant minions posted this despicable hatefulness:

LGF_Jim_Hoft

This is as dishonest as it is cruel — “thanks to ObamaCare,” my ass!

What these deluded fools would have you believe, basically, is that there was no such thing as “decent” health care in America until Obama and Democrats invented it. According to these idiots, cancellations caused by ObamaCare are actually good news, because hey, the government will force other companies to issue you a policy. But this isn’t the same as, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” is it?

No, it’s not. As Jim says, he had “excellent” insurance that gave him access to the best treatment. Jim paid extra for that plan, because it was the plan he wanted, and the regulatory mandates of ObamaCare have nowtaken Jim Hoft’s plan away from him.

What a lousy excuse for a human being Charles Johnson is. Stomping on someone who is sick, and who is a victim of the stupidity of the central planners who are behind ObamaCare. Like I said, I do not know Jim, but if Charles Johnson had said that in front of me, well, it would have taken all my restraint not to deck the goofy weasel bastard!

UPDATE! Obviously I should note that Charles Johnson did not make that attack on Hoft. Yet I see that CJ allows this post to stand? So again, My apologies to Charles Johnson, HE did NOT make that comment, but he has allowed it to stay on his sight. Yes, I should have checked the post myself, so my mistake is no one’s fault but mine. But, had anyone posted such a nasty post on this blog, not only would that post be gone, but so would their posting privileges.

So you think only individuals will lose their healthcare plans?

Fools!

Townhall.com has Kathleen Sebelius’ testimony at this link.

Here’s what this means in real terms:

In 2015 or soon after, expect to lose your employer-based medical plan.

Of course, this assumes that, in 2015, you will still be employed full-time with a company offering medical benefits, and/or your spouse’s employer won’t already have eliminated coverage for you. In this part-time economy – again thanks to Obamacare – you’d be a fool to bet on that.

Only two percent of existing health plans meet the bureaucratic nightmare standards of the “Affordable Care Act.” Even for that two percent, the premiums will climb and keep climbing.

If you are in that 2% and your ACA-approved employer-based plan happens also to be a so-called “Cadillac plan” (with especially high benefits), you’ll probably lose it anyway! Obamacare imposes a 40% excise tax on benefit programs that exceed $10,200 for individuals and $27,500 for families. That creates a strong incentive to cut benefits to below that level.

As for the other 98 percent of plans that you hoped would be “grandfathered,” the ACA is designed to phase them out as rapidly as possible.

According to an Obama Administration estimate from June 2010:

“The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” wrote the administration on page 34,552 of the Register. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their “grandfather status” and become illegal. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans—more than half the population—was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.

Another 25 million people, according to the CBO, have “nongroup and other” forms of insurance; that is to say, they participate in the market for individually-purchased insurance. In this market, the administration projected that “40 to 67 percent” of individually-purchased plans would lose their Obamacare-sanctioned “grandfather status” and become illegal, solely due to the fact that there is a high turnover of participants and insurance arrangements in this market. (Plans purchased after March 23, 2010 do not benefit from the “grandfather” clause.) The real turnover rate would be higher, because plans can lose their grandfather status for a number of other reasons.

It has NEVER been about helping anyone folks. It has always been about increasing dependence on government, growing the power and scope of government, and destroying the private insurance industry. Earlier I was watching Fox News and the panel discussion was about whether or not Obama’s apology was genuine, and whether or not the president lied about people keeping health insurance they liked. What idiocy is this? There is no doubt that Obama lied, and KNEW he was lying. It is HIS HHS department, headed by his appointee Kathleen Sebelius that issued the regulations that will force nearly everyone, no, not 5% of the people Mr. President, but everyone off the insurance they chose, and that they liked. Why is there any debate, at all, about whether or not President Obama lied?  Why is there any debate about whether or not these people will get “better” insurance, or “cheaper” insurance. The real issue is that individual liberty is being destroyed in the name of helping Americans. It is being destroyed by overzealous, power-hungry politicians who care about only their power!

The issue here is that those who passed this law either KNEW what it would do, or were too ignorant to educate themselves about the massive bill, with even more massive regulations would do. The issue is that these people are not fit to serve, in any capacity. They have, possibly signed the death warrant of not just the private insurance industry, and personal choice in our health care, but this nation as a whole. There are numerous issues at stake here, but the most important one is being ignored. We can argue whether or not Obamacare will kill people by eliminating their individual control of their health care. But that Obamacare will kill liberty cannot be argued.

 

If you think the early symptoms of Obamacare Reaction Syndrome are bad, just wait

Girls Just Wanna Have Guns has some bad news, Obamacare is like getting bitten by this guy

Puff Adder puff-add-sand

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Some people like to drive a Ford and not a Ferrari.” Those words were spoken by Representative Blackburn during the testimony of Kathleen Sebelius to Congress. But guess what – you will also be penalized for driving that Ferrari. 

You think our health insurance plan won’t change because you don’t have one of those icky “substandard” plans? Think again. That particular shoe will be dropping in 2018. Sure that seems like a long way off, but it comes quickly, agencies are already making changes and you need to know that NO ONE is really exempt from this nightmare.

We all know Obama lied his face off saying if we like our plans we can keep them. But the Democrat’s excuse for him this week was that those plans just weren’t good enough so they have decided you didn’t really like them and you’ll be getting something better. But wait – you can’t have a plan that’s “too good” in their eyes either. You see, there’s the “Cadillac Plan” tax. If your plan is worth over $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family, it is considered one of these plans. Oh, their excuse is that it covers SO well that you aren’t careful about going to the doctor so you drive up the costs of medical care and because you have it so good you should have to subsidize everyone else.

But wait, you say, your plan costs less than that, you’re safe. Really? You try to be fiscally responsible. You have a Flexible Spending Account or a Health Savings Account where you put money into it to help cover your medical costs. You deliberately chose a plan with a higher deductible so that you could save money. Silly you, that will now be used against you. That adds to the value of your plan. For instance if your plan is worth $9600 you think you’re safe.

Go read the rest, there are so many things wrong with this bit of Marxism that the damage it will do could be incalculable frankly. Which is why I said Obamacare is like getting bitten by a puff adder, one of the deadliest snakes on earth. The puff adder possesses deadly toxic venom, cytotoxic venom to be specific, it is a venom that destroys tissue, at an incredible rate, Google Puff Adder bites if you have strong stomach, so if the bite does not kill you, it may destroy large parts of the bite area, as one expert puts it you get nailed by one of these and fingers start rotting and falling off. The snake also has the second longest fangs in the world, 1 1/2 inches, and has the fastest strike of any snake in the world. In short it is one of the very last creatures you would ever want to mess with. Sure the bite hurts, but what comes later is incredibly bad, just like Obamacare

Sadly for us, we are all going to have to mess with Obamacare, and suffer the dire consequences. See the puff adder has a well defined role in nature, it helps control rodent population, and will gladly leave you alone, lest you are careless. Obamacare, on the other hand helps to control, well us, because as any Communist knows, if you control someone’s health you control them.
