Democrats Again Trying To Delay Intentional Consequences From ObamaCare….

Obamacare sucks. Everything about it was based on lies, false presentations, and outright manipulative efforts from Democrats.

As a direct result of the worst legislation ever constructed the vast majority of Democrats have been running from it ever since it was signed into law. Democrats know know the toxic nature of the fraud they created. Higher insurance costs, lower healthcare services and financial impacts to the average person that are ridiculously unaffordable.

Obamacare

Obamacare is the primary drag on the economy and businesses, sucking money away from businesses and individuals. Hence Democrats have continually asked for delays in an effort to avoid the political consequences. Here’s another:

(Via Daily Caller) A group of Democratic senators is urging the Obama administration to delay a key portion of Obamacare because the results could be “harmful and disruptive.”

In a letter exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller, Senate Democrats pleaded with Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell to delay an Obamacare rule change that puts companies with 51 to 100 employees in the costlier “small group” market instead of the “large group” market. The rule change, which will result in higher premiums for many companies, goes into effect in 2016.

obamacareThe letter was signed by Democratic Sens. Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, Chris Coons, Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Jon Tester and independent Sen. Angus King, who caucuses with the Democrats.

“We are writing to share our concerns regarding scheduled changes to the definition of the small group market under the Affordable Care Act (ACA),” the senators wrote in the letter, dated March 12.

“Under the law, employers with 51 to 100 employees will be included in the ACA’s definition of small group market starting in 2016. Instead of providing stability, we believe expanding the definition will force those historically defined ‘large group plans’ into the ‘small group market,’ where they could experience higher premiums, less flexibility, and new barriers to coverage…”  (continue reading)

      Hey A-holes, READ IT next time! Actions have consequences.

      Repeal 100% OR Implement Fully. 100%.
      How many illegal changes, delays, etc. have been done to their FABULOUS so far?
      More than the amount of times we have tried to repeal it I am sure.

    —Success! A bunch of starry-eyes Marxists figure out the realities of the economic world!

    Now, feel free to sustain your do-gooder, saviour-complex, more-virtuous-than-the-average-bear values, but develop them with respect to the REAL WORLD before you thrust them on the rest of us.

    Thank you.

    If only Dad could devise a rant that would sink in like that lesson. PTL.

    This is so crazy…The shutdown was because the Democrats did not want to approve the Republicans One Year Obamacare Delay. Can anyone tell how many parts of Obamacare are still intact and/or have not been delayed (Most of this is due to Obama Executive Orders).
    OK who the H3LL is running our country..

    Congress begs Obozo’s minion for more unconstitutional Executive Branch legislation. Remember when Congress used to wield legislative power?

    I keep laughing at my liberal relatives as they realize they will be paying more for less. Tis a very expensive lesson to learn there is no such thing as free. Muddy the logistics of any product or service and marginal cost will increase.

      Some friends who voted for obummer and have been quick to argue any negative about this admin were here over the weekend. She was complaining about her doctors strong encouragement for a mamogram. She said she told him she would not have one, ever. I implied that under the full implementation of ocare she would be mandated to or likely pay a penalty in higher premiums or “fines.” She and her spouse laughed out loud at my words and to this day, have no idea that what happens at the doctors office is tied to their votes.

    Translation of this letter is that Democrats don’t want more of this albatross around their necks during the 2016 election. They want what is politically damaging to remain hidden until the low info sheeple shuffle to the polls again. In other words, these duplicitous, self-serving, career politicians don’t give a damn about separation of powers under our Constitution; they just want Mr. Fixit to delay yet another stinky part of Obamacare ’cause it’s going to make them look bad.

      Wouldn’t help Heitkamp, she’s not up for re-election in the Senate until ’18, though she may be running for governor in ’16. Not sure about the other ones.

      They also don’t care about the people affected. No, this is only about losing votes and not just for their own reelection. Ted Cruz would start looking pretty appealing to voters if the full effects of obamacare are felt. I’m so tired of the manipulation.

    I like your poster. I am totally against FORCING a person to buy something he DOES NOT WANT AND CAN NOT AFFORD. I thought “liberals” were AGAINST forcing people to do something they HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO DO. That violates basic human rights. Delete that second – and Obama-fraud would, and should collapse. FIX that issue, and perhaps a “new” care law could be established. Democrats are liars.

    Just wait until the group policy mandate goes into effect…..in 2017. That 10k pound gorilla was to go hot in 2014 or 15..I forget…but it was pushed back to 17. That is going to be epic.

    Part of the reason for delay is that politicians never want to face heat from angry constituents. But the other reason is to avoid letting a “tax” case reach the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Roberts ruled that the Constitution empowered Congress to pass the ACA only as a tax measure. The Supreme Court can revisit the constitutionality of ACA once a lawsuit based on the taxes reaches them. Standing to file a legal challenge requires that someone be injured first by paying the tax. By dragging that event out, ACA is further entrenched in the economy, and Obama has a chance to move the Supreme Court even further left.

    Obamacare has a very important plus going for it. Large social programs have a lot of fat in their budgets. Millions of dollars ‘fall off the back of the truck’, so to speak. Boehner and McConnell lick their lips at the thought of so many millions available to be steered to their family members, their friends, their cronies. Best part…no Republicans voted for it, so it is the sweetest graft of all. The minute Obamacare was deemed passed, establishment Republicans could not believe their luck. It will never be repealed. As an example, here’s how it works. About 4 years ago David Axelrod, Obama’s campaign manager, got a grant of $30 million from Medicare, to publicize and make citizens aware of their ‘benefits’. I’m sure $100k was spent on a few TV commercials. The rest is gravy, minus the kickback to the politician who steered the grant.
