Another company has made public just how much money it’s going to cost them for Obamacare.

(The Wall Street Journal has the story)

Verizon’s Executive vice president for human resources Marc Reed, wrote to company employees yesterday about Obamacare. “Many of the plans that Verizon offers to employees and retirees are projected to have costs above the threshold in the legislation and will be subject to the 40 percent excise tax.”  In other words – Verizon employees had some pretty good insurance coverage – and now Obamacare is going to punish them for it.

Harry Reid's Past Comes Back To Haunt Him

In America, Congress, Government Lies, Health Care, Obama, US Senate on February 24, 2010 at 8:28 pm

Under the Bush Administration Reid explained:

“When legislation is supported by the majority of Americans it eventually overcomes the filibuster’s delay. But, when legislation only has the support of the minority the filibuster slows the legislation, prevents the Senate from ramming it through, and gives the American people enough time to join the opposition. The filibuster is far from a procedural gimmick it’s part of the fabric of this institution we call the Senate.  It was well known in Colonial legislature before we became a country and it’s an integral part of our Country’s 214 year history. The roots of the filibuster are found in the the Constitution and in our own rules. In establishing each house of Congress, Article 1 Section 5 the Constitution states: each house may determine its rules.  And in crafting the rules of the Senate, Senators establish the right to extended debate.”

What would you like us to believe: The filibuster is a necessary tool in crafting legislation OR it’s simply a Republican gimmick being used to block much-needed reform?

Obama: 'Take Our Time' On Finalizing Health Care

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Integrity, morality, Obama, Socialism, Uncategorized, US Senate, World News on February 6, 2010 at 3:32 am

Much like the stimulus plan, health care must pass now or there is a good chance the world will come to an end. Do you buy it? Does anybody buy it? We’ve all heard the story of the little boy who cried wolf: a little boys cries out ‘wolf’ several times (when there is no wolf) until finally, the wolf appears and the kid gets eaten-or something like that.

(Associate press) via BigGovernment.com reports: WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says “we should take our time” getting to a final health care bill.

He said Thursday he wants to go through the legislation in detail with Republicans to examine their ideas and Democratic ideas to see whether there are better ways to improve the nation’s health care system than have already been proposed.

Obama said that letting some time pass before calling for a vote also will allow “everybody to get the real facts.”

The president spoke to donors and supporters of his political organization, Organizing for America, one of a handful of fundraisers he was headlining Thursday for Democrats.

Obama said it is most urgent to focus now on a jobs package, but that health care must be addressed afterward.
