Twila Brase Wants ObamaCare Repealed, not Maneuvered!

What GOP “Repeal”
Bill is Missing      
by Twila Brace at Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom

“Houston, we have a problem. Where is the REPEAL in the GOP ‘repeal and replace’ bill? Republicans have won three elections because they promised to repeal Obamacare. Nothing about the latest “repeal and replace” bill is a repeal of Obamacare. It’s essentially the Republican version of Obamacare.

Sure, it repeals almost all the taxes, but not until January 1, 2018. And it repeals the individual and employer mandates, but Republicans add their own version of a mandate, which is also a new entitlement program: refundable tax credits.

Where is the repeal of the section of Obamacare that prohibits affordable catastrophic coverage? How will this bill put consumers and patients in charge instead of health plans and government? How will it lower costs and increase access?

The only thing Americans asked for was repeal. And when this non-repeal bill doesn’t lead to lower costs and greater access, who will be blamed? Republicans.

This bill will not warm the hearts of working Americans hit with impossibly high premiums and dangerously narrow networks. It’s a boon to managed care corporations. It doesn’t even repeal the three programs that redistribute wealth to insurers (reinsurance, risk corridors and risk adjustment), which have led to lawsuits from insurers asking for taxpayer-funded bailouts.

The GOP “American Health Care Act” is a fix-it bill, but it fixes little, causes more problems and does not repeal Obamacare.

There are two choices for a REAL REPEAL bill:

  1. First, introduce a bill to repeal every word of Obamacare and fight it out on the Senate floor to get to 60 votes. Then if Democrats are willing to publicly stand in the way of repeal, Americans will know exactly who to blame;
  2. Second, use a budget reconciliation bill that requires only 51 votes and pile every possible section of Obamacare onto it – just include the index of the law — and then argue with the parliamentarian about what can and cannot be included. Whatever doesn’t get repealed, Americans will still know who’s to blame.

Obamacare was imposed by Democrats. The GOP should not impose their own version of Obamacare, or let the GOP become the fall guy for the failures of Obamacare. Republicans should repeal Obamacare. It’s what they said they’d do. It’s what Americans want. Repeal is simple and straightforward. Just repeal Obamacare — and do it now.

We’re making plans to head to Washington, D.C. with a “Repeal it All, Repeal it Now” message. Time is short and we may have the opportunity to talk to a key member of the Trump Team.” 

Schumer, Pelosi Speak, Perform Their Marxism by Sabotaging Government

Don’t worry. If the Democrats shut down the government it will still be the GOP’s fault

by Jazz Shaw  at  HotAir:

“We started hearing rumors about this last month, but according to a new story in the New York Times this week it may be fast approaching a reality. The Democrats are drifting further and further into the land of the unhinged, particularly when it comes to the prospect of building a “Great Wall” on the southern border. That’s going to cost money (regardless of whether or not Mexico eventually pays us back in some form) and if the GOP attempts to approve such a funding measure, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their friends are apparently going to shut out the lights in Washington. The hypocrisy of such a move was a bit much even for Alan Rappeport to swallow.

Democrats pilloried Republicans for irresponsibly shutting down the government when Barack Obama was president, but as a minority party struggling to show resistance in the era of President Trump, they are now ready to let the lights of government go dark.

A group of prominent Senate Democrats on Monday raised the specter of a shutdown over the funding of President Trump’s proposed wall along the border with Mexico. They also signaled a series of protracted budget battles in Congress over a larger force of immigration officers, what they call a deportation force, and funding for Planned Parenthood. They warned that these would also be “poison pills” that could kill any potential deals to keep the gears of government running normally this year.

There’s something hauntingly familiar about this story…….” Please continue:

PRAGER UNIVERSITY: WHY AMERICA MUST LEAD

WHY AMERICA MUST LEAD     from Prager University

Presented by former Danish Prime Minister and NATO SECRETARY GENERAL, ANDERS RASMUSSEN:

Terrorism is rampant around the world, rogue states seek powerful weapons, and old rivals to liberty and democracy are once again ascendant. So, what will happen if America retreats from its position as the world’s sole remaining superpower? In this week’s video, Anders Rasmussen, former Danish Prime Minister and NATO Secretary General, discusses the implications of America’s withdrawal: what it could mean for the world, and what it could mean for America itself. Watch the video here and let us know what you think.

Presented below by:

ANDERS FOGH RASMUSSEN

“The world is on fire. Syria has fallen apart. Russia has seized Ukrainian land. And China is flexing its muscles. Who can put these fires out? As Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Denmark’s former Prime Minister and NATO’s former Secretary General explains, only the United States.”

Science and Capitalism Dancing Together……

The science behind capitalism

By John Conlin at American Thinker:

 

“The economic system called capitalism has been described in many ways, but at its core, it is quite simply free people freely interacting with other free people.  Capitalism has transformed the world by producing more wealth than any other economic system in the history of civilization.

But how does it produce such wealth?  Some have said freedom is the magic potion – that left to their own devices, free people will outperform any other economic system.

That is true, but the ultimate reason is deeper and firmly based in science and fact.  In the past few decades, a great deal of research has been done on what is called swarm intelligence.  Swarm intelligence attempts to explain and understand the collective behavior of group animals.  Think of honeybees, schools of fish, herds of bison, flocks of birds, etc.

The intelligence of the swarm is a significant multiplier.  Rather than relying solely on individual intelligence, these groups create a collective intelligence that is orders of magnitudes beyond that of any individual member.

They do so without any leader, with no management of any sort, with no one “seeing the big picture.”  In fact, having no one in charge is a key ingredient to swarm intelligence.  This incredible increase in intelligence is driven by countless interactions among individual members, with each following simple rules of thumb and reacting to their local environment and those members around them.  That’s it.

Perhaps counterintuitively, if an individual member did attempt to become a leader, the group intelligence would drop precipitously.  And although it may be difficult to grasp, this self-organizing behavior has no cause and effect.  It simply is.

Think of the intelligence of one of the members of these swarms versus the intelligence of the group.  We are talking about not adding a few group I.Q. points, but rather increases in intelligence by orders of magnitude.

My hypothesis is this same process is the scientific basis for the success of capitalism, and in fact the success of the human race.  This swarm intelligence has always been at work, but with our highly developed communication skills and the ability to record and store knowledge our collective swarm intelligence is truly astounding.  Just like the honeybee, our swarm is orders of magnitude more intelligent than even the brightest among us.

And thus capitalism, which is just individual freedom as expressed in an economic system, is absolutely certain to “work.”  It is a scientific fact just as certain as gravity.  And just like the swarm, it does so with no leader, no management, and no one seeing the big picture – no cause and effect.  It just is.

And just like the swarm, when we attempt to place leaders in this process, the collective intelligence plummets.  This explains why governments and their activities are always going to be far stupider than free individuals going about their daily lives.  This isn’t a political statement, but a factual one.

Again, we aren’t talking about knocking off a couple group I.Q. points, but rather magnitudinal increases in stupidity.  This stupidity multiplier isn’t restricted to governments; it applies to all organizations, the larger the worse…..”  Please read on:
