What Made You Think Medicare Was “Free” Insurance?

It is alarming to hear not only younger members of the country, but also some middle aged members, medical professionals and others, referring to Medicare as some kind of free, gravy train medical insurance that seniors don’t have to pay for. Are people really that ignorant of how this system works?

After paying into Social Security and Medicare for decades, those who 1619098_10202643451221752_1414455253_nreceive medicare must also now pay a premium every month for this insurance. These premiums can range from a few hundred dollars a month, to several hundred. Married couples pay individual premiums which can amount to $700.00 per month or more, combined on average. These premiums are deducted from their Social Security checks; neither the government, nor taxpayers, pay this premium.

Then there is that handy-dandy “donut hole” where Medicare pays nothing. This was a huge gift to the insurance companies who whined about not getting a piece of the Medicare pie. From approximately the $2500.00 to $5000.00 costs of care, Medicare pays for nothing. Ta DA! We got your GAP insurance plan which will cost you another $200.00 per month at least. This will cover the costs incurred in the hole. Of course the insurance companies have no plans to make good on these GAP policies, so getting them to pay any percentage of anything is a monumental task.

Then there is the co-pay at your doctors office. Then the co-pay on medications. Then there are the costs of medications your insurance and Medicare don’t/won’t pay for. That comes right out of your pocket!

Now, to add insult to injury, an estimated 20 million illegal aliens will be given “free” healthcare and I have yet to hear the word “entitlement” attached to those benefits.

Obama’s Unlawful Amnesty Actions – It’s All A Smokescreen

Ruthie Hendrycks November 21, 2014

5aafc0a0-aeb0-11e3-93d2-12313b024af0-mediumObama NOW claims that he has the authority to override our immigration laws after repeatedly stating that he could not – not by Executive Order – but with a Presidential Memo (much like my grocery list memo on the fridge). Of course those of us paying attention realize and acknowledge the lawlessness taking place, but for those who so eagerly believe what the bias and selective mainstream media tells them – they are just uninformed of the travesty taking place – by Obama’s own admission.

Of course the Democrat’s are ‘All In’ on the lawlessness making claims such as “Gee, Obama had to … the House just would not suck it up and pass the treasonous Comprehensive Immigration Bill that WE created”. Of course, these very same Democrats are ever so silent on the fact that via Harry Reid – most of the compromising that the GOP did seek – went into a drawer in Reid’s office – never to be seen again. The Democrats only focus on this talking point because….well…. it’s all they have to try and persuade the American Citizenry that their aiding and abetting of this corruption is warranted.

One must wonder what other laws Obama feels he, his pen, phone and memo pad can simply ignore and I wonder…. if in 2016 a Republican is elected President, if the Dem’s will be so supportive of such ‘I Am King’ lawlessness? More

Post-Midterm Obamacare Prognosis: Hold the Champagne

Illegal Immigration: What do you think should happen?

Lawsuit by Career ICE Attorney Exposes Obama Anti-Enforcement Campaign

CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES

By Jessica Vaughan, November 11, 2014

______________________________________________________

“When a number of attorneys objected to a particular example of such a criminal alien, the supervisor said, “We [ICE leadership] don’t give a s*** about that. Let it go.”

________________________________________________

Last week Patricia Vroom, an attorney with an exemplary 26-year career at ICE filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Arizona that depicts in shocking detail how a tightly-knit band of her superiors apparently bullied her and other career lawyers to force compliance with the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement suppression scheme. In addition to describing a hostile work environment spoiled by sexual harassment, threats, insults, and other deplorable behavior of these top managers, Vroom’s complaint provides alarming examples of how personnel were told to ignore the law and routinely release and dismiss charges on entire categories of criminal aliens, including certain convicted felons, drunk drivers, DACA applicants, and illegal juveniles from the border surge.

The complaint has enough juicy scenes for a night-time television drama, but what it reveals about the Obama administration’s reckless disdain for immigration enforcement is especially troubling. It is the latest in a series of lawsuits that demonstrate a disturbing pattern of abuse of authority among favored and ideologically driven senior staff in DHS agencies.Vroom describes some specific examples of how the so-called prosecutorial discretion policies have been implemented, and of the effort to destroy professional integrity in ICE’s legal division:

•Beginning in May 2009, this clique of top supervisors launched a “purge” of senior chief counsels, targeting them for “harassment, reassignment of duties to much less desirable ones, public humiliation, and brutal scapegoating” in order to place cronies in those key positions to carry out administration policy changes. Like other senior ICE attorneys, Vroom says she was targeted after the now-disgraced acting head of ICE, John Sandweg, “screamed” to her supervisor that the Phoenix office, which she ran, was “all f***ed up” for not implementing “prosecutorial discretion” to their satisfaction.

Mid-term elections: Pardon me while I yawn

Remember when the country first elected Obama? Remember the collective sigh of relief as he spoke of returning the country to its former glory? Remember when we all thought he was going to end the neo-con overthrow of our government and country?

And remember when we all realized he had simply picked up where the Bush/Cheney Crime Syndicate left off and added some new twists of his own?

Remember how sick at your stomach you felt when you realized that Obama was Bush on steroids?

That’s kind of the same feeling too many of us out here have today. This wasn’t a mandate for Republicans although they are trying to sell it as if it was. It was a rejection of the corruption, the anti-American mind-set in the District of Criminals. And we had only two choices.

______________________________________________

34192_1thThere are few out here in the general public, regardless of supposed party affiliation, expressing any sense of celebration or excitement over last night’s election returns. We simply swapped one faction of the one-party system for the other. Most agree that nothing is going change other than the way the pre-planned agenda will be implemented.

Absent from any debates, if you could call the public displays put on by candidates on both sides a debate of any kind, was any discussion of the illegal and unwarranted spying by NSA and multiple other spy agencies operating without oversight.

No one mentioned or even discussed casually, the militarization of law enforcement against the public at large. Not one candidate mentioned the military tanks, the grenade launchers, assault rifles, SWAT gear, and other military weapons that local law enforcement is now arming themselves with for use on the very communities that employ them. Equipment that was paid for with taxpayer money or borrowed in the name of the People and produced so excessively that there was enough equipment to sell to other countries, to arm our own military and to arm local law enforcement against us.

2014 Midterm Elections… Re: Illegal Immigration

Opinion with Suggested Solutions

So the results are in and the Republican Party swept the evening …leaving one to ask if is this a positive triumph on the issue of illegal immigration or have we just elected an additional group to hold accountable to the American Citizenry? Some are predicting doom on the amnesty horizon where others are claiming an ‘no amnesty’ victory. Which is it – we will find out … it will be either that our Representatives will once again be a Pro American conference rather than an pandering illegal alien advocate.

Last night was a reflection on the Obama Administration’s agenda and whether the pundits agree or not…. illegal immigration is a part of the agenda. An Exit Poll from Fox News showed that the top three issues were the Economy, Obamacare and in third place… Illegal Immigration. It should be obvious then to all, that the Obama agenda is NOT the agenda of We The People. It is also important to note that the threats made by those who support another lawless amnesty – did not sway the outcome – their demands do not outweigh the anti amnesty sentiment and stance felt by the majority of Americans.
