We’ve all heard that the new “Obamacare” healthcare bill that passed (albeit illegally), would produce a huge infrastructure of bureaucratic agencies and a lack of individual choices. Well, I present to you what that will look like……Voila!


Does this look efficient?

After looking at this, does anyone think that this will run “efficiently” and “cost-effectively”? I doubt it….it looks like a crazy puzzle. What’s with these insane people who design this crap and make it as complicated as possible?

Fortunately, Senator John Cornyn introduced a bill, The Health Care Bureaucrats Elimination Act, S.3653, cosponsored by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Pat Roberts (R-KS), and Tom Coburn (R-OK) to remove unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats from American seniors’ personal health decisions by repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

Keep an eye on this in the news, as I’m sure those in power now will shoot The Health Care Bureaucrats Elimination Act down.

For more details about the bill and the Health Care monstrosity, here is the information from Senator Cornyn’s web page.

I could not link directly, but if you go to his page, and click “issues”, “Key Issues”, “Healthcare and Retirement”, you then need to scroll down to ”

The "Oligarchy" who forced this upon you.

Jul 27 2010

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) today introduced a bill, The Health Care Bureaucrats Elimination Act, S.3653, cosponsored by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Pat Roberts (R-KS), and Tom Coburn (R-OK) to remove unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats from American seniors’ personal health decisions by repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

“In true fashion of Obama-Reid-Pelosi hubris, the IPAB is the definition of a government takeover,” said Senator Cornyn. “America’s seniors deserve the ability to hold elected officials accountable for the decisions that affect their Medicare, but IPAB would take that away from seniors and put power in the hands of politically-appointed Washington bureaucrats. This bill to repeal IPAB is just one step towards starting over with real health care reform that empowers patients instead of beltway bureaucrats.”

“The $2.6 trillion health spending law fails to address a serious challenge facing our nation – skyrocketing health care costs. The White House chose to punt tough decisions to a bunch of bureaucrats with no accountability to the American people,” said Senator Hatch. “In response, we’ve come together with this common-sense legislation to put a stop to an unelected board with unprecedented power over the health decisions of every American senior. Making our government more responsive to the people we represent, like we are doing with this legislation, is how we rebuild the public’s trust.”

“The most dangerous consequence of a Washington takeover of health care is the inevitable rationing that will result in the delay and denial of care,” said Senator Kyl. “The IPAB, a group of unelected Washington bureaucrats, will decide whether certain tests and treatments ‘cost too much’ and therefore won’t be covered under the new law. By repealing the IPAB, we take one step forward in protecting the sacred patient-doctor relationship and ensuring access to the highest quality medical care.”

“On the hook to find $500 billion in cuts to pay for the new health care law, IPAB is yet another government body tasked with rationing to contain costs,” Senator Roberts said. “Access to quality care for seniors is threatened by decisions made behind closed doors by unelected and unaccountable government officials.”

“Health reform should empower families with more choices, not put government bureaucrats and rationing boards in the middle of medical decisions,” said Senator Coburn. “The Independent Payment Advisory Board is a government command-and control bureaucracy that will dictate payment decisions and interfere with the best judgment of physicians and families. The task of repealing this misguided law begins here.”

Senator Cornyn’s bill is one of a series of bills, including legislation to repeal burdens on small businesses and job-killing taxes, to highlight specific problems with the Democrats’ health care law. After taking $528 billion from the nearly bankrupt Medicare program to create a $2.6 trillion new entitlement, the Obama-Reid-Pelosi health care law created an unelected, unaccountable board of bureaucrats to make additional cuts to the Medicare program based on arbitrary global budget targets. The IPAB would empower 15 bureaucrats to make substantial changes to Medicare—without full transparency and accountability to America’s seniors and their elected officials. Additionally, Senator Cornyn and co-sponsors of the bill note several other issues with IPAB, which include:

* Product of Politics: While the designers of IPAB contend it will depoliticize the Medicare payment process, the IPAB’s very charter is the product of politics. Special interest groups cut deals with Democrats to specifically exempt hospitals, 28 percent of Medicare’s budget, from the IPAB’s ax. Additionally, IPAB simply takes decision-making authority from elected officials and gives it to the President’s political appointees.

* Shirked Responsibility: While IPAB was sold as a mechanism to address entitlement spending, the reality is that IPAB allowed Congress to punt to an unaccountable board the responsibility of fully paying for a budget busting new entitlement program. The history of the $371 billion Sustainable Growth Rate problem has shown that punting budget problems down the road only makes them worse for patients, providers, and taxpayers.

* Fallible Bureaucrats: IPAB’s body of “experts” was modeled in many ways after the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC). However, MedPAC doesn’t always get it right, and its recommendations are carefully examined by Congress before legislative action. A news report last year noted that , “The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, created by Congress in 1997, has recommended more than $200 billion in cost cuts in the last year alone that lawmakers have ignored.”

* Jeopardized Access: IPAB has raised significant concerns among a diverse group of health care provider groups. 75 provider groups sent a letter stating their opposition to IPAB stating, “The IPAB reductions would be in addition to the…savings in provider payments already included in health care reform legislation, which could jeopardize both access for Medicare beneficiaries and even infrastructure for the entire health care system.”

“A storm builds, and its coming will cleanse the World”

Lo! We have listened to many a story of our forefathers, their splendor of old, their mighty heirs and warrior deeds!  Many a son of warriors old, taken by the forces of savage foes.

Whence came this seed of evil?  Born of a father from Ny-an-za, in the “Dark Continent.”

The mother of evil, from Wi-chi-ta, a far away land named “The New World.”  The seedling to be born a half-breed son.

The young lad had not a decent upbringing;  a father and mother of nomadic ways, he found guidance through a false prophet, who resided in the windy city.

The prophet-noir did instill obscure and profane thoughts into the impressionable young mind.  The lad had sought out strange writings by mad-men; twisted ideas of “taking from one man, to give to another”,  his education grew in the wrong direction- it was too late- he had sealed his fate.

Surrounded by faceless soulless men and women; he learned his craft well, to be a soothsayer and captured the feeble minded through wicked spells of deception.

From humble beginnings, paltry and weak, he grew to a tyrant as time brought change to the world;  he slyly throve under heaven in power and pride.

As he tasted a sip of power he knew, he had to take it all for himself;  nothing to stop him- the lawmakers that were trusted to protect the masses, they also fell victim to his spells.

Woe the fate of a great Republic- sabotaged by this monster!

He had planned his campaign; through any means to take power, to rule over all.  His ideas were to be followed, none may object; strike down those who dare criticize his will.

His rise to the Apex of power came to pass, swift like a thief in the night.  By covert  planning; many opened the doors for him, through nefarious ways.

In his court of advisers; a haggard woman of power, took him for her pawn.  She vouched for him; a lie through and through….that he may be eligible to be supreme leader over all.

Although the contract of the Republic stated only a natural citizen may rule; she convinced the judges, that her words were true.

Once in power, this usurper from the “Dark Continent” needed not abide by the laws.  The oligarchy ruled; looked the other way, when transgressions were committed against the common people.

Those who had power, had committed treason against the Republic; how to annihilate them to restore peace and prosperity through the Great Land?, for which many a brave warrior had met mortality to protect.

Oh the fate of a great nation, only to collapse under such duress!

Everything that was hidden  will be revealed; and as the sun overcomes the darkness, will a new day dawn with grace?

Annihilate– To destroy something

Apex– The highest point of something, the top

Covert– Secret, not intended to be known, seen, or found out

Forefather– Male ancestor, usually one who died long ago

Haggard– Appearing worn, unruly

Nefarious– Evil, utterly immoral or wicked

Nomadic or Nomad- Someone who wanders from place to place

Paltry– Insignificant or unimportant

Profane– Irreverent, showing disrespect for God, any deity or religion

Throve– Past tense of thrive

Treason– Betrayal of country

Tyrant– An absolute ruler who exercises power cruelly and unjustly

Usurper- Seize something without right: to use something without the right to do so

Whence– From where- from what place or source

The following comment is in response to an article with the same title  posted on Politico.  The comment  is by “Independent Moderate”, and I couldn’t agree more with him/her.

To read the full article, go to:

http://www.politico.com/livepulse/0210/Top_Pelosi_aide_House_Dems_reasonably_confident_they_can_pass_a_reconciliation_package.html

As I have stated before, I really believe Pelosi is on drugs…..major drugs….when I saw the clip of her with the ” Eensy, weensy spider; little teeny tiny” comment….It confirmed my suspicion.

Here’s “Independent Moderate’s” comment……it is priceless:

Eensy, weensy spider; little teeny tiny….WHAT! This woman is second in line for the President of the United States of America.   While you people on the left must be exhausted from engaging in the crucifixion of Sarah Palin, might you take a scintilla of that energy…a moment of your time… to take a real clear look at the Leader of the House? Who cares about Sarah Palin! She’s not even in elective office! Please, I am begging the good people of Northern California to have mercy on the rest of us. As long as this idiot (and I rarely resort to such disrespectful descriptions) was merely representing you, we were good. Now, she’s affecting us all. The next time you find yourselves in front of a voting machine, PLEASE push the button for anyone other than Nancy Pelosi.

Kudos to you Independent Moderate!  But just a FYI….Pelosi is actually third in line for the presidency….something would have to happen to good o’l Joe too.

Watch out for the VAT tax!

He commented today on Fox News that politicians are seriously considering starting the “VAT” tax here in the U.S.


So….what is a VAT tax? It is a “Value Added Tax”, which according to Mr. Forbes, it is basically a “super sales tax” that is embedded in the price you pay for consumer goods/items.  The people will end up blaming the merchant and not the politicians…..thus the reason they believe this would be good.  It is a way to grow big government, at the expense of even the poorest people.

Currently, the VAT tax is utilized in Europe, and its tax rate is between 20 to 25%.

Everything I have read about the VAT tax is not good.  If you wish to find out much more about it….please check out this link:

http://www.heritage.org/Research/Taxes/bg1852.cfm

The current administration is trying every thing they can to expand the government….to the point of no return.

We must stop the insanity of “spend, spend, spend”, and return to fiscal responsibility.

Well well…..it seems that the two hard-heads can’t seem to compromise.   Does that surprise anyone?  I doubt it…poor Obama…..so used to getting his way, can’t seem to accept the fact that “you can’t always get what you want“.    And Pelosi?  well…..one look at her and you know she is used to getting what she wants too  (I’m sure she has her own evil ways of wheeling and dealing).   Getting a little off subject here…..when watching Pelosi…….I often wonder, what concoction of drugs is she on?…..then I wonder, how did she get elected?…..then I remember, oh yeah….she’s from the Cali state of messed up abbey- normals.

Back to the article…….oh, Karma is such a glorious thing….(wait that isn’t in there), but what the heck…..it is wonderful and shows that there must be some kind of justice in this corrupt world.

Yes, Obama and his administration will  get what they deserve.  They just haven’t figured out that you can’t force the American people to go along with their agenda…..no hard-core Chicago politics are going to help here…..quit trying to be elitists…..you work for us!

So…..I dedicate this song to the current administration running the country…..(yes the Obamarammas and the Chicago thugs).

No You Don\’t! by Nine Inch Nails

smiling in their faces
while filling up the hole
so many dirty little places
in your filthy little worn out
broken down see through soul

baby’s got a problem
tries so hard to hide
got to keep it on the surface
because everything else is dead on the other side

teeth in the necks of everyone you know
you can keep on sucking until the blood won’t flow
when it starts to hurt it only helps it grow
taking all you need
(but not this time)
no, you don’t

and just for the record
just so you know
I did not believe
that you could sink so low

you think that you can beat them
I know that you won’t
you think you have everything
but no, you don’t

no, you don’t
no, you don’t
no, you don’t
no, you don’t
