Oh. I will not be able to address those statements in 140 characters.

There are several things in your statements that I certainly disagree with, are not factually correct, and I find it hard to find any truth in them at all. So, I’m guessing we’ll just have to agree to disagree, as you apparently saw & see things very differently. Either you simply passed that along from someone else, or saw/remember things widely different from what actually happened. However, I will try to help you see #Truth by addressing a couple of them.

The Constitutionality of Obamacare is still yet to be seen, as the SCOTUS only reviewed the ‘tax’/’penalty’ aspect (which they changed the argument for, and which is revenue generating, which is required by law to originate in the House).

You said that you watched it go from passage in the House, then off to the Senate?….

It was introduced in the House as the
“Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of
2009″(First Time Home Buyer Credit For Service
Members and “accelerated” certain estimated
corporate income tax payments) (H.R. 3590) by
Charles Rangel (D–NY) on September 17, 2009

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
A completely different ‘animal’ to what the Senate passed, the House passed on October 8, 2009

Then, on Nov. 18, 2009, Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada introduced in the U.S. Senate what President Obama later signed as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. On that same day, Reid issued a press release titled “Reid Unveils Senate Health Care Bill.”A month later, he issued a second press release, titled, “Reid Unveils Final Senate Health Care Bill.”

The Senate gutted the Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009 and inserted the PPACA instead, which the Senate then passed as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” on December 24, 2009 (revenue generating, & no longer an amendment.?!)

March 2010, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
uttered her most infamous 16 words: “But we
have to pass the [Senate healthcare] bill so
that you can find out what’s in it.”

Fourteen days later, President Obama signed
the Affordable Care Act into law, the self-
described Senate Health Care Bill having
passed the House of Representatives without a
single Republican vote. This is a far cry from almost a year.

When Speaker Pelosi was later asked to defend
her infamous remark, she quipped, “It’s
because we didn’t have a Senate bill . . . We
were urging the Senate to pass a bill.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the Gang of 8 work on immigration. 😉

You have watched the videos, and read the statements of Gruber right? If not, I would suggest that you take the time to do so. Especially in when he said that the healthcare law would not be affordable, that it had to be worded in such a way as to confuse the CBO, and that they would have to rely on the stupidity of the American people for it to pass.

This is just ‘some’ of how the ‘A’CA was done behind closed doors.

Obamacare Was Never About Healthcare, It Is About Control

In a bizarre statement, US Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said that, “As you know, we’re facing the end of the Western Civilization by having a market-based strategy. We are bringing Western Civilization to its knees by selling private insurance plans on a website where people can pick and choose.” At face value, this could imply any number of things including a bold-faced admission that ObamaCare is the end of the Western Civilization health care system.

President Obama’s Top 10 Constitutional Violations of 2013

obama constitution

One of Barack Obama’s chief accomplishments has been to return the Constitution to a central place in our public discourse.

Unfortunately, the president fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up the constitutional aspects of his policy agenda, but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document. And he’s been most frustrated with the separation of powers, which doesn’t allow him to “fundamentally transform” the country without congressional acquiescence.

But that hasn’t stopped him. In its first term, the Administration launched a “We Can’t Wait” initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that “when Congress won’t act, this president will.” And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that “I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way.”

And so, as we reach the end of another year of political strife that’s fundamentally based on clashing views on the role of government in society, I thought I’d update a list I made two years ago and hereby present President Obama’s top 10 constitutional violations of 2013.

1. Delay of Obamacare’s out-of-pocket caps. The Labor Department announced in February that it was delaying for a year the part of the healthcare law that limits how much people have to spend on their own insurance. This may have been sensible — insurers and employers need time to comply with rapidly changing regulations — but changing the law requires actual legislation.

2. Delay of Obamacare’s employer mandate. The administration announced via blogpost on the eve of the July 4 holiday that it was delaying the requirement that employers of at least 50 people provide complying insurance or pay a fine. This time it did cite statutory authority, but the cited provisions allow the delay of certain reporting requirements, not of the mandate itself.

3. Delay of Obamacare’s insurance requirements. The famous pledge that “if you like your plan, you can keep it” backfired when insurance companies started cancelling millions of plans that didn’t comply with Obamacare’s requirements. President Obama called a press conference last month to proclaim that people could continue buying non-complying plans in 2014 — despite Obamacare’s explicit language to the contrary. He then refused to consider a House-passed bill that would’ve made this action legal.

4. Exemption of Congress from Obamacare. A little-known part of Obamacare requires Congressmen and their staff to get insurance through the new healthcare exchanges, rather than a taxpayer-funded program. In the quiet of August, President Obama directed the Office of Personnel Management to interpret the law to maintain the generous congressional benefits.

5. Expansion of the employer mandate penalty through IRS regulation. Obamacare grants tax credits to people whose employers don’t provide coverage if they buy a plan “through an Exchange established by the State” — and then fines employers for each employee receiving such a subsidy. No tax credits are authorized for residents of states where the exchanges are established by the federal government, as an incentive for states to create exchanges themselves. Because so few (16) states did, however, the IRS issued a rule ignoring that plain text and allowed subsidies (and commensurate fines) for plans coming from “a State Exchange, regional Exchange, subsidiary Exchange, and federally-facilitated Exchange.”

6. Political profiling by the IRS. After seeing a rise in the number of applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS in 2010 compiled a “be on the lookout” (“BOLO”) list to identify organizations engaged in political activities. The list included words such as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” and “Israel”; subjects such as government spending, debt, or taxes; and activities such as criticizing the government, educating about the Constitution, or challenging Obamacare. The targeting continued through May of this year.

Get Informed, Stay Informed and Pass It On – Remember, It Only Takes  a Spark To Get a Fire Going!

The extent of Obama’s abuse of executive power is unprecedented. Among the power grabs, is an order granting himself total control over the nation’s communication network in the event of a “crisis”, and a provision in ObamaCare whereby your doctor can inquire about gun ownership.
Now, his royal indignation as reached fever pitch with a new threat.
“We have a whole drawer full of good ideas. And some of them I can do on my own, administratively.”
“What we’ve seen over the last several years is a constant ratcheting up of partisanship that prevents us from moving forward on things that I think most people would say aren’t Democrat or Republican ideas. They’re just good, common-sense American ideas,” Mr. Obama said at a Democratic party fundraiser in Miami. “Energy independence is one of them. Making sure that we’re investing in the best schools, so that our children can compete in this new global economy; rebuilding our infrastructure, not just our energy infrastructure, but our ports and our roads and our bridges and our air traffic control systems, so that we stay on the cutting edge; making sure we’re investing in research and development … We have a whole drawer full of good ideas. And some of them I can do on my own, administratively.”
In other words, if we continue to give King B. Hussein grief over his amnesty for illegal aliens, his wasteful spending orgy, and his ‘green’ agenda, he’ll simply issue another decree and expect the serfs to obey.
The first order of business for the next Republican president should be an executive order rescinding every single executive order Obama regurgitated.

“This is what we need to do to reign in the out of control federal government. It’s not going to happen until the states take control. The founders in their great wisdom gave the states a way to stop an out of control federal government.Check it out:In early September, the COS Project began searching the country for citizens who recognized the brokenness of D.C. and were ready to be a part of the solution. Since the release of its Volunteer Leadership Application, the Grassroots Team has reviewed hundreds of names. Each application highlights a common desire to serve the nation and defend its freedoms for future generations.We are excited to announce that twenty-six states now have active leadership in place.One recently-appointed leader explained, “I don’t want to take the chance of sitting aside thinking that perhaps someone else will jump in and do it – and then not have it happen. So I am putting myself out there and am offering my time and my talents to help get this going.” Every day, citizens, no longer willing to sit on the sidelines, stand up and take tangible steps to return rightful power back to the states.Continue Reading on http://www.conventionofstates.com …”

America's Watchtower

  As if it were not bad enough that we learned last week a college pal of Michelle Obama is a Vice President of the company which was contracted to build the Obamacare website we are now learning in this story that the Vice President of the firm which won the no-bid contract to fix the website is a major contributor to the president.

But a review of campaign and fundraising activities by a key executive associated with the general contractor for the surge, Quality Software Services Inc. (QSSI), raises substantial concerns regarding the appropriateness of awarding a no-bid “emergency” contract to a firm associated with over $1 million in donations to President Obama.

Jeffery Zients, former acting director of the Office of Management and Budget was appointed on October 25 to oversee a team of tech experts to repair HealthCare.gov. Mr. Zients said QSSI, a unit of United HealthGroup Inc.’s Ovum, was retained on an emergency basis…
