Stop Myths that Conservatives Shut Down the Government


Fact
Conservatives such as Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee stated up front that their goal was to fully fund all of the Government except for ObamaCare.

Fact
The US Constitution specifies that budget funding starts in the House.  This then enables the House the option to combat an overextended president.  Our founders purposely set this up.  ObamaCare is now much different than the law that was passed given all of the exemptions.  The House was justified and brave in efforts to defund.

Fact
When defund effort failed, the House immediately passed bills to fund core Gov functions and also tried to compromise on delaying the individual mandate for 1 year.  Harry Reed refused to take votes on any of these.  Hence the Gov remained down.  Little would the Left know that few weeks later some of their own would push for this delay.

Fact
The House and Conservatives tried to compromise with at least 2 very reasonable options – delay tax on medical devices for 1 year and delay the individual mandate.  The Left refused.

Fact
Few Senate Dems (expect more) now support delay in individual mandate given the web site debacle.  Man, if they only accepted this in earlier then the Government shutdown would have been much shorter.

Fact
ObamaCare weak link clearly is how many in the 18-35 age group sign up so the young can in essence pay a lot more than they should to provide adequate funding for all others.  The critical number is 2.5 million in the 18-35 age group.   Good luck. At this rate this looks unlikely and the whole ObamaCare may unravel.

 Maybe the Left will listen to Conservatives next time?

 Maybe not.  Consider the following:

 Fri 10/25 Megan Kelly 9 pm on FOX
Megan interviewed the Rahm Emanuel’s brother – Ezechiel? Call him E. E is a doctor and was a prime ‘architect’ of ObamaCare. He was condescending but Megan handled him well. One key part was E’s response to facts that over million have lost their insurance (from companies or their private employer) or have had substantial increases to premium and/or lost their doctor. Per E, BO did not lie. E lambasted the insurance companies and private companies for raising rates and dropping insurance plans.

*** The above is very significant. Why? This is classic Saul Alinsky tactics – shift blame on a crisis of your own making to your enemy, demonize your enemy, propagandize it is a moral battle – greedy “haves” versus “have-nots”. It may the opening battle to destroy private insurance companies leading to single payer health care. The underlying real battle here is traditional American capitalism (what little is left of it) versus expanding Socialism.  BO is closely following Vladimir Lenin’s revolutionary strategy from creating a culture of dependency, class warfare, confiscating wealth via ultra progressive taxation (your 401K and IRA may be next if ObamaCare costs explode), and most importantly – debasing the currency via increasing total debt from $9.5 Trillion to $17.3 Trillion in under 5 years. “debasing the currency is the quickest step to revolution” – Vladimir Lenin. This may be BO version of “fundamental change”. Let’s fight him every step of the way, restore free markets, limited government, our freedom.

I allow Ted Hruzd, my friend to blog at will here. He has many posts here. I have known Ted since we were both students at NYU. Ted also works for an Investment Bank as a VP in Equity Global Markets. ------------------------- I was very very Socialist leaning as a 22 year old. I then strongly believed in Gov role in helping the poor. However, as a USDA Child Nutrition Programs, I personally accounted for millions of fraud, abuse, and waste of tax payer money. I came to believe that the poor would be best served with less Gov programs and more with direct aid via tax system. Then after 5 years I became a free market capitalist, was a venture capitalist in 2007 and helped start 2 high tech companies. I dedicate this site to champion free market capitalism as the best road to Prosperity. Please join in. If you disagree, fine, but please post with dignity and class and be civil. Argue with facts always.

    IRS assessment over 10 million would loose health insurance and their doctors specifically due to ObamaCare standards in July 2010. Meanwhile BO knowingly lied pushing the Saul Alinsky strategy with lies to support end game of single payer. Under way now is Alinsky strategy of shifting blame from crisis of your own making to your enemy and demonized the enemy. The enemy is what little remains of the American capitalist system. Brace yourself for all out war against the greedy immoral insurance companies. Smarten up America and fight this push to BO version of Alinsky variant of Marxism.
