… Amazing [ObamaCrapCare Stunt in D.C.]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 17th,2013

.. the states have plenty of questions over ObamaCrapCare .

.. Not surprising , considering the financial risk how many of them are taking on dealing with the possible Medicaid

expansion . And , on how many of them rejected participating in said expansion , once the U.S. Supreme Court gave them the option to do so in NFIB v Sebelius . They well know what a financial monster the Medicaid program has now become . The federal government made similar promises in the 1960s and the 1970s to the states , and look where that got them . The ” Medicaid Monster ” is the largest growing line item in many states ‘ budgets . Many of them have to go with a bare – bones approach to Medicaid , just to bring some sense to their budgets and their bottom lines . The federal government does not , unfortunately , have a balanced budget amendment . Virtually all of the states do , however .

.. The People ‘ s Republic of Columbia (a.k.a. , our Nation ‘ s capital) is not one of them . Their insurance commissioner had good questions about the morality and legality of POTUS ‘ so – called ” administrative fix . ” Not a surprise . Unfortunately , what happened next was not , either .

.. The Mayor of the People ‘ s Republic (Vincent Gray) fired the insurance commissioner . Coincidential ? I think not . Considering that he questioned and disagreed with POTUS ‘ actions ‘ , how bad would that look for the DemoCraps in the People ‘ s Republic if they refused His Lordship ‘ s request (er , dicktat) . They would look very , very bad .

.. get a look at this article [link] from Sunday ‘ s Washington ComPost . it gives a little more detail …

… You have to Focus on the Infernal Service , and get Someone high up to Flip …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,May 26th,2013

.. the folks at the Infernal Revenue Service know that they are in very big trouble .They have been caught red – handed in political meddling , and they know that they should not have done so . Their image has been damaged , even if they had one already . Their ability to do their job is also compromised . What happens after all of this is largely open to question

.. The top IRS officials , whose agency was under investigation for targeting conservative groups, visited the Obama White House more than 100 times over two years while the probe was going on, far more often than in previous administrations and frequently enough that Republicans suspect White House officials knew about the targeting.

.. Lawmakers that are now investigating the Infernal Revenue Service practice have zeroed in on those nearly weekly White House meetings . They are trying to determine whether an IRS official — or someone even higher up in the administration — had approved the targeting and whether it was politically motivated . The frequent meetings also raised questions about the White House’s claims that it could not have instigated the targeting of conservative groups , because it took a hands – off approach to the tax agency . They are going so far as to describe it as independent of the administration , which is incorrect . The Service is actually a constituent part of the Treasury Department.

.. Former Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Doug Shulman visited the White House 118 times between 2010 and 2011 . Acting Director Steven Miller, who took over at the IRS in November, also made numerous visits to the White House . Variations in the spelling of his name in White House visitor logs makes it difficult to determine exactly how many times . The frequent trips to the White House under ObamaCrap Administration far outnumber  the times other administrations felt the need to meet with the IRS .

 

.. Shulman said he couldn’t remember why he went to the White House so frequently, though some of the visits were probably about the IRS’ role in implementing Obama’s health care reforms, he told a congressional committee. Logs show Shulman met with two West Wing officials working on health care. “The IRS has a major role in the money flow,” Shulman explained to Congress . Yea , riight .

.. It helps to keep the pressure up on the bad guys . What they have done is really , really outrageous , and beyond the pale . The big thing , now , is to get someone to flip on the inside . Hopefully , it is someone that has or is being brought to justice , so that the legal pressure continues and increases . No better way to get someone to fink on the other bad guys and gals .
