John McCain and the Swamp 1, the American People 0

John McCain and the Swamp 1, the American People 0

Well, at least you will know who to blame when your premiums, deductibles, and co-pays keep climbing to outer space faster than an Elon Musk rocket: Sen. John McCain. Early Friday morning, Sen. McCain singlehandedly extinguished the last flickering hope of repealing the monstrosity that is ObamaCare by casting the deciding vote against the final repeal proposal, the so-called “skinny repeal.” As Politico put it, McCain went from being repeal’s savior to its executioner in a matter of days. 

The words that should come to every American’s lips every time they read another story about the catastrophe of ObamaCare are these: “Thank you, John McCain.” 

I have never been a fan of term limits – limiting terms is what elections are for – but Sen. McCain may have just changed my mind. He’s virtually a one-man argument for strict term limits. 

I predicted at the beginning of this whole farce that at the end of the day we were going to be stuck with ObamaCare with all its colossal bloat and misbegotten mandates for one simple reason: too many Republican lawmakers have virtually no conservative convictions or principles. And if they do have them, they are well-hidden and the first thing thrown overboard when the New York Times starts yammering at them.

The only path back to sanity on health care is through the free market. ObamaCare needs to be repealed root and branch because it is an exercise in government-run, government-controlled health care, which is just a form of fascism. Literally. Fascism is, by definition, a system in which you are allowed to own your own business but the government tells you how to run it. We went to war in 1941 to stop that kind of foolishness from turning Europe into the dark continent.

The alternative to fascism, or socialism, or communism, or whatever you want to call it, is giving health insurers the freedom to develop any kind of insurance plans they think the American people want to buy, and giving the American people the freedom to choose the ones they want. There is no need for government to be involved in those decisions in any fashion. For our government to make these choices for us is an insult to the American people, and is a way of treating its own citizens as infants who are incapable of thinking and choosing for themselves. 

The only proper role for government in health insurance is to enforce the sanctity of the contract. A health insurance policy is a contract between the insurer and the insured. If an insurer fails to fulfill his end of the contract by providing the services promised in the contract, the insurer can and should be sued in the interests of justice, and civil government should hold them strictly accountable. But that’s it. In fact, enforcing contracts should be the only role of government anywhere in a free economy. 

If ObamaCare were to be repealed tomorrow, as it should be, and wasn’t replaced by anything, virtually overnight health insurance companies, because they want to stay in business and make money, would be competing with each other in a mad dash to offer a veritable cornucopia of health plans. You can make bank that these plans would include low-premium, high-deductible, catastrophic policies which would provide inexpensive and entirely affordable protection for ordinary Americans against the cost of major medical events. The Cruz amendment would have created this kind of market, but alas it was strangled in the cradle by Republicans and dumped in the Swamp. 

Under a free-market plan, employers could make these plans available to their employees at a fraction of the current cost of health insurance. The employers would then be able to take what they save in premiums and contribute it to health savings accounts owned by their employees, which would rapidly enable their employees to accumulate enough to satisfy the deductible and to take care of ordinary medical expenses along the way.

The competition across state lines would be fierce, as insurance companies, without the promise of gargantuan, taxpayer-funded bailouts, would compete with each other for your insurance dollar. Health insurance companies would have to step up their game to earn business, rather than counting on the heavy hand of government to drive business into their nets by ordering every citizen to buy their product. 

But thanks to John McCain, the opportunity to create that kind of marketplace is gone, perhaps for good, until our entire health care system collapses in on itself like a burning building.

Perhaps showing his true colors, before the final vote was called McCain literally walked across the aisle and engaged in a hug-fest with Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein and a gaggle of Democrats. In fact, McCain told his best buddies on the left that he wanted to stick a fork in the whole repeal effort: “Let’s get this over with,” he told them, before walking theatrically to the well of the Senate and delivering a dramatic thumbs-down, a gesture worthy of any Roman emperor in the Coliseum. 

Democrat Senator Chris Coons of Delaware said, “I was trying not to jump up and down and smile.” Video showed Sen. Schumer exuberantly pumping his fist in celebration, just what we hoped to see when we gave Republicans the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office.

The choice last night for John McCain was between government and the American people. Sen. McCain chose poorly. And it is the American people who will suffer.

ALERT! ALERT! ALERT! This man was paid $3,500 to protest Donald Trump

This man was paid $3,500 to protest Donald Trump

We finally have proof that progressive front groups are giving actors money to protest presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump. After eight years of failed Obama policies, Democratic strategists are desperate to get voters agitated enough to gamble on another four years of big-government experimentation. And if they can’t generate real passion among the electorate, make-believe anger will do just fine.

ABC News reports:

Today a man from Trump’s rally last week in Fountain Hills, Arizona has come forward to say that he was paid to protest the event. “I was given $3,500 to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Fountain Hills,” said 37-year-old Paul Horner. “I answered a Craigslist ad a little over a week ago about a group needing actors for a political event. I interviewed with them and got the part.”

Trump supporters have been claiming for weeks that the protesters are being paid for by Bernie Sanders ’ campaign, but Horner disagrees.

“As for who these people were affiliated with that interviewed me, my guess would be Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Horner said. “The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future’. After I was hired, they told me if anyone asked any questions about who I was with or communicated with me in any way, I should start talking about how great Bernie Sanders is.”

Here’s the ad that ran on Craigslist:

Ad

All of this, meantime, sounds like vintage Hillary to me: Attack Donald Trump, then frame Bernie Sanders.

Horner also shared an observation that is sure to crack up all the millennials in the room:

“It was mostly women in their 60’s at the interview that I went to. Plus, all the people that I communicated with had an AOL email address. No one still has an AOL email address except people that would vote for Hillary Clinton.”

This report is confirmation that desperate Democrats are manufacturing outrage and planting protesters in an attempt to instigate violence at Donald Trump rallies. Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

FOR SO MANY REASONS! Voting Matters

I hear the same song and dance over and over again when I ask people who they like in the upcoming mid-term elections on November 4. It is simply astonishing how manyVOTE seemingly intelligent people give me the answer, “I don’t vote” or “I only vote in the presidential elections.” It seems like too many Americans simply forgot history and/or what they learned in the American Government class they were required to take in high school. I hear many say that voting doesn’t matter anyway. When did voting become irrelevant or unnecessary in a republic?

I believe way too many American citizens have grown so complacent and comfortable here in America that we truly forgot what a great privilege it is to vote. I remember the “good ol’ days” when I was younger and conversations about politics and religion weren’t so taboo. I would hear family discussions about who was running in the elections. Sometimes those discussions would get pretty heated and my grandpa might add some Polish slang to my vocabulary! Elections were more like events that everyone in the community knew about and participated in.

Not anymore. Don’t discuss politics and religion. Somebody might just get offended. Now it is like a mortal sin to say you don’t like someone’s views. I vote for getting over this, getting the intelligent conversations started again and get to the voting booth on November 4th.

Allow me to present my simple response to the question, “Why should you vote?” First of all, go to your favorite search engine and type “what elections were decided by few votes.” You will quickly see that there are indeed some that were decided by very small margins. Voting does indeed make a difference. Go ahead and search it. Nobody is watching you be political.

Now ask yourself this simple question: If voting doesn’t matter, why does President Obama seem to have campaigning and fundraising on the top of his “to do” list these days despite everything else that is going on? Our country is being attacked by terrorists that we can’t call “terrorists” and a deadly disease that can be contained if we simply put the COMMON back in the SENSE! The President campaigns because HE KNOWS voting matters. Why can’t we see the obvious?

I often hear Rush Limbaugh talk about the low information voter, but what is more disturbing to me is the low information Christian. It seems to me that there is no shame anymore in not voting or not being informed enough to vote intelligently. I have heard people proudly say they don’t vote and as if not voting was the smarter thing to do. When I hear Christians saying this, I simply want to scream. There are candidates on the ballots that are pro-choice and others that are for homosexual marriage and too many times these issues are left unchallenged by the very population that should be the loudest. Elections are the time to get your voice heard.

Believing the lie that voting doesn’t matter means we are just giving up! Our forefathers, deceased relatives and friends, would be turning over in their graves over the few numbers of citizens that still faithfully exercise the privileges that so many shed blood for, and we simply take for granted. If you still aren’t sure if voting matters, can’t you at least agree that setting a great example for future generations is an intelligent move just in case it matters?
