Time to break out our inner Thucydides:

"We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them."

How 'bout that Lois Lerner?? Phony negotiations with Issa and that boob Cummings playing the oppressed victim card with Dana Millbank calling Issa a racist. The crazy is strong with this one, Yoda.

Issa needs to subpoena the chief counsel of the IRS who visited the White House over 150 times and find who he met with and what was discussed.

There is a criminal conspiracy and it leads right to the White House.

rse

"one" = won. Good to know I am not the only one who sometimes types homonyms of the sound in head.

So healthcare and insurance remain in complete disarray, always expensive, but who has to bear that expense is being dictated now by political pull.

Just like everything else in our new thugocracy/kleptocracy vision of an acceptable society.

Barry Dauphin

“I support national health care, but what the president is doing is effectively amending or negating the federal law to fit his preferred approach,”

I think the "preferred approach" translates into English as "best way they can think of at the moment to win elections."

NK(withnewsoftware)

RSE@10:30 is about as a profound and important thing as you will read today IMO. Those couple of sentences sum up the Dem Party, Public Unions, University 'academics' feeding at the gov't grant trough, racialist activist groups, and business cronies. That collective group of kleptocrats and the Debt Bomb are the 2 greatest threats to civil society and the USA.

NK(withnewsoftware)

"best way they can think of at the moment to win elections." Unfortunately it's worse than that-- the Prog Kleptocrats are trying to make elections irrelevant by using their public union partners and Prog judges to have permanent Prog Control no matter who wins elections.

"So healthcare and insurance remain in complete disarray, always expensive, but who has to bear that expense is being dictated now by political pull."

Thomas Lifson notes who has to bear the expense and it corroborates Miss Marple's observations regarding beauticians. Those same observations pertain to waitresses and to the blue collar folks who keep turning up at the food pantry.

The Democrat Party "of the working (wo)man" has momentarily successfully morphed into the Progressive Fascist Party of the parasite and bureaucrat but the Muddle has noticed the bill handed to them and isn't going to pay.

NK(withnewsoftware)

"has noticed the bill handed to them and isn't going to pay."

They can't pay, hence the food pantry.

"It doesn't matter what rights you have under the Constitution of the United States, if the government can punish you for exercising those rights. And it doesn't matter what limits the Constitution puts on government officials' power, if they can exceed those limits without any adverse consequences.

In other words, the Constitution cannot protect you, if you don't protect the Constitution with your votes against anyone who violates it. Those government officials who want more power are not going to stop unless they get stopped.

Indeed, conservatives need more D'souzas and Jindals amd Patels, and Hernandezs and Kims to vote their economic interests. Those ethnic economic interest votes plus married/working women voting their economic interest will kill the Dems. Kill the Dems and the threat of Prog tyranny will be defeated. You're absolutely right TK.

"will leave others with self-insured plans on the hook to foot the bill,”

I would think that's a sufficiently direct injury to confer standing to sue, but I'm not sure.

NK(withnewsoftware)

DoT-- I think it is. This will be one of the arbitrary tax power challenges to ObummerCare regs. Hopefully, that litigation is made moot by the FY2016 budget repeal of ObummerCare.

Old Lurker

DoT I don't understand why those whose policies were in fact cancelled and not reinstated after Obama changed the rules, vs others whose companies had not yet cancelled then did not with the new rule...do not already have standing to sue?

More on the ICD-10 Code Chaos

There is even this paen to DoT:

"Boynton’s “personal favorite” is code V9027XA: “Drowning and submersion due to falling or jumping from burning water-skis, initial encounter."

JiB-- I don't think the Code chaos is funny at all. Isn't that one of the ways BigGov insurers are coercing Drs. to go along with ObummerCare? No Codes no $$$?

Miss Marple

Rick, so true.

I am, of course, not allowed to explain things to these honest but bewildered and now poverty-stricken people, like the woman who had to children and their families move in with her while her husband and sons went to St. Louis to look for work (they are roofers).

We keep politics out of the food pantry.

Someone should figure out a way to reach these people.

I didn't say the Code Chaos was funny but the article and the way Hayes approached it.

Robert Laszewski (best, IMO, nuts and bolts ACA observer) writes about the probable impact of BOzo's moratorium. I note he is saving the big frozen flounder for later use. BlueGovIns is going to have to price health coverage for '15 according to the existing poisoned pool, not the BOzocare fantasy pool. They will have to submit their extortionate demands to be compensated for Progressive Fascist idiocy to state insurance boards this May, not after the elections.

How will the broke Muddle react to news about requests for increases next year in the 40-70% range?

NK(withnewsoftware)

My Harvard Med Internist and his practice group joined the local hospital network almost 2 years ago. At my last physical, he was really irate at the Code Compliance requirements imposed in the network and having to be fully digitalized by 10/14. he claimed that the economic value of joining the network, was destroyed by the digital costs, and the digital costs were a joke because it will never work-- in his professional lifetime.

narciso

the point is Rick, preventing them from taking this into consideration in the midterms, that's what matters,

Danube on iPad

Rse nailed it: "who has to bear that expense is being dictated now by political pull"

Exactly. And it always will be so long as this law is on the books.

Ignatz

--The move reflects the administration’s view that a divided Congress would not be willing to make changes to the law, but lawyers questioned the legitimacy of the action and said it could have unintended consequences in the long run.--

In other words it's only bad if the result is a Republican does the same thing in reverse. Presumably if it didn't have that unintended consequence it's full steam ahead.
A truly objective journalist would have followed the comma in that sentence with ", but the executive branch doesn't get to make changes to laws."
A truly honest one would have followed it with ", but that's unconstitutional and the goddamned son of a bitch ought to have been impeached years ago for his autocratic tendencies."

narciso

You note, that is Pear's own opinion, not based on any source.

Miss Marple

I have been aware of the coding thing for a couple of years. I have a good friend who is in charge of a cancer registry at a local hospital, and since they are heavily involved in coding for reports, they have been working on it for a long time.

The problem is that the people who knew the old codes are not up to snuff on the new ones (as Hayes's article says) and the system is fraught with error.

I believe I told you guys when I went in to see my doctor last year my records showed I had had a heart bypass and an angioplasty. I have had neither. The error occurred when the practice and the hospital merged their records.

This mess of the records and the resulting chaos will be replicated all over the country. People will die because of it.

So make sure you ask about your records whenever you go to the doctor, and make sure you carry a list of medicines you are on, even minor things such as birth control pills or anti-cholesterol drugs. You do't want them giving you something that will react with what you are taking, and the current records will be unreliable.

From the Corner:

John Bolton took the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday and declared that the country’s “biggest national-security problem is Barack Obama.”

More vituperation for the last man who could have saved the country from Obamacare. The Dread Pirate Roberts. Long may he waive.

"Of course TK, you agree conservatives have to win more ethnic and womenz votes... don't you?"

Oh...

I guess I wasn't absolutely right.

Conservatives only need to win the vote of conservatives to win.

Sowell's ethnicity is of no concern to me and I would guess that my ethnicity is no concern to him.

Threadkiller

“biggest national-security problem is Barack Obama.”

I didn't see that coming.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Alas your 12:13 avoids the issue TK. Not nearly enough new voters, especially ethnic immigrant-first generation voters are conservative, and certainly not nearly enough vote conservative even when it's in their interests. You're whistling past the graveyard here, conservatives ignore demographics and polling at their peril. California elections are ground zero for this reality.

Jane

I was in 2 different waiting rooms for over an hour this morning, and both had the Today Show in the TV. In the entire time I was there, news was never discussed. They cooked pancakes and did weather and talked about how cool they were, but there was no news. None. It was like watching a cartoon.

Ignatz

Yeah when I think of cool I think of Meredith Viera, Matt Lauer and the most interesting shart in the world, Al Roker.
Doesn't everyone?

Threadkiller

"conservatives ignore demographics and polling at their peril."

Faux conservative leaders ignore true conservative voters at their peril.

Chick-fil-A day should be a template.

Ignatz

--Conservatives only need to win the vote of conservatives to win.-

In a general or a primary?
I'm dubious that the majority of voters in a general election are conservatives. That doesn't mean conservatives can't win elections, they can and do at a better rate than moderates, but they have to give non conservatives a reason to vote for them.

NK(withnewsoftware)

And who decides what is 'conservative' and what is 'faux'? End of chat, there is no purpose to any discussion about this.

Voting... If you are against rape, you don't vote to let the rapist stick it in a little as it's not a rape rape no matter what the dem lite R candidate or whoopie says. People know when they are being given a false choice and will choose not to make themselves a party to the crime hence they won't vote at all.

My husband, who knows a thing or two about authoritarian dictatorships, noted this morning that the Dems routinely gather newly registered voters at naturalization ceremonies--in some cases *before* the actual swearing-in. The new citizen, now a new Democrat, once branded, continues to vote as such.

Mis Marple, your latest from the food pantry reminds me, sadly, of tales from FDR's depression when families and friends shared housing and incomes in order to survive.

"Obama says Crimea secession referendum violates Ukraine constitution, international law."

And rightfully so. The road to LIVs is paved with forgotten conservatives.

They would be the majority if their candidate wasn't so busy competing for the pro abortion vote.

Sowell's ethnicity is of no concern to me and I would guess that my ethnicity is no concern to him."

TK, you are exactly right. I don't believe those independent voters are intrinsically "moderate" and to the left of conservatives. They just need a compelling candidate. That's how a Walker can win in Wisconsin. A wishy-washy RINO is as compelling as dishwater.

Conservatives should not get hung up on demographics. That only leads to D style accommodation and sacrifice of principles. Conservatives just need more votes, period.

You are correct when that one-issue is not wanting a spend-crazy Republican that wants to act like a democrat to garner their vote.

I am not so sure though when the one-issue is "progressive facicism."

Some here consider "progressive fascism" to be ten issues, but I don't.

Stephanie, you are not thinking. I am a Catholic. The Church is a target.

We already have twice had people show up who try to get us to say something political by going on and on about how wonderful Obama is. I can spot them as ringers because they are not dressed poorly and seem to have money for gold nose rings and such.

We say NOTHING about poitics for this reason. I do not want my church hit with a lawsuit. It's a dangerous world, even in church food pantries.

I didn't mean you weren't thinking, Stephanie. I phrased that poorly.
