CBO: Even After “Affordable Care Act,” 23 Million Uninsured by 2019.

Wait …I thought Barack Obama told us that his health care scheme was going to eliminate the problem of people not having health insurance. From The Cato Institute, by way of Intellectual Takeout:

And even by 2019, CBO expects there to be more than 23 million uninsured (see Figure 7). … About one-third of the uninsured would be illegal immigrants. But that would still leave 15–16 million legal, non-elderly U.S. residents without health insurance.”

As for that one third, the illegals, as we have noted frequently in this space, and on The Teri O’Brien Show, there is NOTHING in the proposed “comprehensive immigration reform” aka amnesty that would prevent the illegals given their “provisional” status from getting “free” health insurance, or at least a Medicaid card. (Good luck finding any health care provider to take it, of course.) Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) actually dropped out of Rep. Luis Guttierez’ (D-Open Borders) cozy little “Gang of 8″ over this issue. From the WaPo:

Labrador said he decided to leave the group amid disagreements over who would be responsible for paying for health-care for immigrants.

What about those 15 million Americans left uninsured? Barack, what happened? I thought you fixed this issue once and for all!

The slow motion train wreck continues, as Barack Obama’s decades old plan to foist single-payer, government controlled health care on the peasants.

Another Back room Deal Producing an America-Destroying Train wreck: Amnesty Conspiracy in the House Makes Sure Illegals Continue to Use Emergency Rooms

From YNN (Waco, TX), a story from last April:

While the Senate’s so-called Gang of Eight stalls on immigration reform, another group with a more specific proposal could get the jump on them.

Republican Rep. John Carter of Round Rock admits to an ongoing series of bipartisan House negotiations, all held in secret.

“We have been meeting on this issue for almost four years,” Carter said. “It’s miraculous that we kept it a secret.”

Let that sink in. “It’s miraculous that we kept it a secret.” He’s talking about the Houses’ so-called Gang of 8, now a gang of 7. The Daily Beast concurs:

 The group has been working on this bill since the beginning of the Obama presidency, and took up the issue with enewed vigor after November’s elections.

So, four Republicans have been conspiring behind closed doors for almost 4 years with Luis Gutierrez (D-Open Borders) to sell out the American middle-class and complete Obama’s mission of “remaking” America into Cook County writ large! Actually, it’s now 3 Republicans because Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) dropped out. Why? From ABC News:

The struggle for agreement came when Republicans wanted to include language in the bill that would make undocumented immigrants responsible for 100 percent of their own medical expenses, in full.

Under current law, hospitals are required to give emergency care to anyone who walks in to a facility in need. The individual pays what they qualify for and Medicaid picks up the remainder, reimbursing the hospital for the difference.

Republicans wanted the undocumented immigrants personally responsible – out-of-pocket – for all the health care costs they incur.

Democrats suggested the creation of a fund or a pool of money to which  the 11 million undocumented immigrants would contribute to take care of any of health care costs for the 11 million.

But Labrador wasn’t going to budge, according to sources.

Gee, why would making illegals pay for their own health care even be an issue? Weren’t we told by proponents of this amnesty scheme that these “undocumented” people who come “out of the shadows” won’t be eligible for any benefits and won’t be a drain on the taxpayers? Aren’t the proponents of this amnesty the same people who told us we needed Obamacare because so many people were showing up at emergency rooms for medical care? How will this amnesty change that? If anything, it sounds like the proponents are counting on that continuing to happen, and their only concern is making sure illegals don’t have to pay for the care they get.

The remaining Republicans in this now “Gang of 7″ are Republicans, Reps. John Carter of Texas, Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida and Sam Johnson of Texas. We need to contact them TODAY, especially those of you who live in their districts, to let them know that you are on to this con and want it stopped IMMEDIATELY. You can find contact information for them, and your member of Congress here, courtesy of the good people at NumbersUSA. 

When you contact your representative, please ask him if he believes any of the things on this list.

Watching the turmoil in Egypt it occurred to me that a great business would be selling American flags, and you’d do especially well if you throw in a box of matches with every purchase. The U.S. is accused of taking sides by both sides. The pro Morsi people say we had to have known about overthrow. The anti-Islamists say we stuck with Morsi too long. This even though we’ve been doing our best to appear indifferent. Barack Obama has been doing his best to convey the impression that we are completely indifferent, and Sec. of State John Kerry was on his wife’s yacht while Egypt was erupting.

  • Stomping around the planet in an endless series of ridiculously expensive, but still somehow hideous outfits?
  • Indulging your addiction to endless luxury vacations?

Seven Questions for Proponents of Gang of 8′s Amnesty

There will a motion to proceed vote today in the U.S. Senate on the Gang of 8 immigration (read amnesty) bill, S. 744, and Barack Obama, no doubt displaying one of his many on-off dialects (Don’t you love the way he says “la-TEE-nos” at these photo ops?) will be rallying support today at the White House. So the time has come to ramp up the pressure on senators, particularly those up for re-election from red states, (courtesy of Numbers USA, here’s a link to a page 888# you can use, plus a link to your senators direct lines) to answer some questions; specifically,

Sen. Charles Schumer, author of the bill, has admitted that illegals will not be required to pay back taxes, so why do proponents keep claiming that they will have to do so?

Proponents of this legislation say that illegals will be “required to learn English.” How exactly will that be enforced? Will we have English enforcement officers? Will we refrain from printing ballots and providing government information in languages other than English? If so, what is the effective date of that change?

The bill gives “the undocumented” a new special provisional status. Why exactly are people who broke our laws entitled to special treatment?

As The Hill reports, Rep. Raul Labrador bailed on this proposal.

Labrador told reporters after an hour-long meeting that he was leaving the group because of concerns that the bill would not sufficiently protect taxpayers from footing the healthcare bill of undocumented immigrants.

While Democrats within the group had broadly agreed that immigrants in a provisional status should not receive government subsidies for healthcare, Labrador said they had pushed for too many exceptions in recent weeks for him to support.

“It bothers me that they don’t have to pay for their own healthcare,” he said Wednesday. “I believe they should have to pay for their own health insurance. If they’re going to have the benefit of living in the United States – which is a privilege, it’s not a right – they should provide their own health insurance.”

Is he wrong? How will we prevent those with special provisional status from simply continuing to use emergency rooms as their doctors’ offices?

Speaking of entitlements, recent media reports featured an illegal who has been on public assistance for 20 years, helpfully offering advice to her fellow lawbreakers on how to live on the dime of generous taxpayers. Do you think she’s the only illegal alien on public assistance? If this woman is getting assistance, despite being here illegally, what is to stop those with a special provisional status from doing so?

How does legalizing a minimum of 11 million low-skilled people help American citizens prospects for better wages in this limping economy?

Why exactly can’t we just enforce our laws?

Susan “Obama Mouthpiece” Rice’s Willful Ignorance: Show Notes, 11/18/12

David “Howdy Doody” Gregory shocked that anyone might think that the Obama regime might withhold information or even lie to burnish its national security credentials. Sen. Lindsay Graham takes it to him, and to the One.

Barack and Michelle celebrate the demise of the Twinkie.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) refers to Petraeus affair by saying “mistakes were made.” Is it because he’s a man that he considers it a “mistake” when people can’t keep their pants on?

Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) replies “that’s not the issue.” He also says that Petraeus never allowed the release of classified or sensitive national security information. Really?

Mitt Romney was not wrong about the democrat party and its appeal to the takers, but his response was LAME. He should talk to a man who should be a GOP rising star is born on Meet the Press, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), who echoes me by noting that Mitt Romney tried speaking conservatism as a second language.
