Obamacare Requires 68-Year-Old Grandma To Have Pregnancy Test Before Biopsy

grandmaThe hypocrisy is infuriating!

Shared on Facebook, via One Silenced, Millions Awakened:

Gramma gets a PREGNANCY TEST
One of our readers told of an experience she had and we thought it was worth sharing:

“I just saw a video about some Democrats in Minnesota laughing over Obamacare. Let me share a bit about what happened to me at my doc’s office yesterday.

Before I had the biopsy the nurse said they had to do a pregnancy test. Now keep in mind, I am a granny. Now I know some of you Bible readers are going to bring up Sarah being in her old age when she conceived but she had Abraham. I have no man. To my knowledge the only birth we know of that didn’t involve a man only happened one time in history. I reminded the nurse about that and she had the good grace to smile and kind of laugh. She said I know this sounds funny but we have to do this.

I said, you know you gave me this pregnancy test the last time I was in here, just weeks ago Why wasn’t that enough. She said they are obligated to do it. I said does this have to do with the insurance and she said yes. The Government regulations demand they do this so as to make sure when they do the biopsy they will not be removing any “life”. She said they have to have records showing they tested. MY Word !!!!!

I was gob-smacked…..not remove life????? I didn’t say anymore to her but my thought was this is garbage. Why is the Government so concerned that a woman beyond child bearing years might have conceived yet this same government pays to deliberately murder babies in the womb by the thousands?

I smell a fear of law suits. That’s another reason why our medical bills are so high. As I told y’all the other day I had to go round and round trying to sort out bills I already paid on other procedures I just had. Maddening!!!

Obamacare is a nightmare that’s just getting started.”

Obama’s ‘Truth Team’ needs a fact check on their fact check

Oh the irony. President Obama’s so called “truth team” continues its propagandist efforts in the hopes of salvaging the President’s crashing approval numbers. This time, by falsely portraying Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers as lying about Obamacare’s effects on the health care industry.

From the unTruth Team’s email:

Truth Team

Friend —

Fun fact:

The latest member of Congress caught spreading myths about Obamacare is none other than the one chosen to give the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers recently blamed the Affordable Care Act for layoffs in the health care industry.

FactCheck.org dug into the research and didn’t find any support for Rep. McMorris Rodgers’ claims — zilch. In fact, they found that there has been steady health care job growth, and that trend is expected to continue. One economist even called her conclusion “silly.”

We’re sure we’ll be hearing more on health care from Rep. McMorris Rodgers in tomorrow night’s response. That’s why we can’t afford to let any myth like this go unchallenged.

Fight back — let your friends know about this embarrassing fact check and help get the truth out about health care reform.

The reality is Rep. McMorris Rodgers tried to pounce on what was a slight downtick in reported health care jobs — something economists say could be attributable to “statistical error.” But of course, there are voices out there who want nothing more than for health reform to fail — that’s why they’ve voted 46 times to repeal or derail the law.

What’s more absurd is that FactCheck.org found that “the new health care law is widely expected to increase health care employment” and quoted one Dartmouth economics professor who said he didn’t know of “any evidence that doctors have lost their jobs because of Obamacare.”

Truth Team, you know what to do.

Share the truth about Obamacare and the economy on Facebook:

Or on Twitter:

Fact check is hardly an unbiased source. Often softening the blow of critics where Democrats are concerned. In this case, they just got it wrong.

First example would be from U.S. News and World Report’s article where administrators at the Cleveland Clinic directly placed the blame for spending cuts and layoffs on the Affordable Care Act:

Administrators at the Cleveland Clinic announced on Wednesday that the health care giant would be cutting as much as $300 million from its 2014 budget, and that the cuts will likely include layoffs.

“Health care reform has really changed things, and the burden of cost is going to be falling on patients,” spokeswoman Eileen Shiel told The Plain Dealer. “We want to make sure we can keep care affordable.”

During a regularly scheduled quarterly meeting, Cleveland Clinic President and Chief Executive Dr. Toby Cosgrove told employees about plans to reduce operating expenses by about 6 percent, and cited the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, as one of the reasons for the cuts.

Then, there is the article from the normally administration-friendly Huffington Post where a medical device maker directly attributes cuts to the tragedy that is Obamacare:

Medical technology company, Smith & Nephew, announced Thursday that it would be letting go of almost 100 workers at its plants in Tennessee and Massachusetts. The company, which makes orthopedic reconstruction products, is blaming 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices in President Obama’s health care law for the layoffs, according to Fox13 News.

Then there’s this:

Stryker Corporation, a Michigan-based medical device company with operations around the world, is laying off five percent of its employees in order to offset the cost of a tax passed as part of Obamacare in 2009 and scheduled to take effect in 2013.

and this

Clifton Springs Hospital let almost 60 non-clinical employees go last Friday. Hospital officials says it’s all because they’re trying to get ready for the impact of the new health care act. The act changes the way health insurance is run and the way hospitals are paid.

The stories are abundant and growing.

These layoffs are a necessity considering the goal of Obamacare. They want to make healthcare cheaper – one of the major costs in healthcare are the professionals that give that care. Therefore, if it is to cost less, there must be reductions in the cost of the people giving it.

Some will argue that these cuts are temporary, a statistical anomaly, a rounding error or a necessary evil. They can pick whichever explanation they like, but they must then admit they ARE happening.

If they are indeed happening, then Representative McMorris Rodgers is correct and it is Obama’s truth team that is spreading nothing more than the great leaders propaganda.

Want to know why Obama needs to discredit Rep. McMorris Rodgers so badly? Because she is giving the Republican response to his State of the Union address tomorrow night.

Thin, cheap, childish and foolish – and now they’ve been exposed.. again.

Roberts Rules Again…Poorly

Now comes news that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has doubled down on his middle finger to the American citizenry by turning away – without comment, which the SCOTUS gets to do – an emergency stay request, filed by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA, to block the implementation of Obamacare.

In an almost ignored story, FOX News reports:

“Chief Justice John Roberts turned away without comment Monday an emergency stay request from the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, Inc. and the Alliance for Natural Health USA.

“They asked the chief justice Friday to temporarily block the law, saying Congress had passed it incorrectly by starting it in the Senate instead of the House. Revenue-raising bills are supposed to originate in the lower chamber. They also wanted blocked doctor registration requirements they say will make it harder for independent non-Medicare physicians to treat Medicare-eligible patients.

“Still pending is a decision on a temporary block on the law’s contraceptive coverage requirements, which was challenged by a group of nuns.”

With an overwhelming number of Americans standing against the implementation of this law, an ever increasing realization of consequences that make the law he most expensive entitlement program ever launched, and the Obama Administration’s unconstitutional manipulation of the law’s provision via executive caveat, Chief Justice Roberts had a golden opportunity to rectify his atrocious ruling that allowed for this law to become binding to the American people. Again, Mr. Roberts has cheated the American people from the benefits of constitutional justice.

Article I, Section 7 of the US Constitution states clearly:

“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills…”

That The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) originated out of the US House of Representatives as the Service Members Home Ownership Act (HR3590), which has absolutely nothing – nothing – to do with health insurance mandates or so-called reforms. Per the Obama Administration’s own Justice Department rebuttal to a suit brought on the same subject by the Pacific Legal Foundation:

“…attorneys for the Justice Department argue that the bill originated as House Resolution 3590, which was then called the Service Members Home Ownership Act. After passing the House, the bill was stripped in a process known as ‘gut and amend’ and replaced entirely with the contents of what became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“Using HR3590 as a ‘shell bill’ may be inelegant, but it’s not unconstitutional, according to the government motion.”

So, the Obama Administration admits that the bill was foisted on the American people disingenuously and nefariously, Justice Roberts ruled it a tax, and yet Roberts refuses to allow the Supreme Court to hear a case that examines and rules on the constitutionality of exactly the unconstitutional aspects everyone says exist.

The big question is this. Why is Chief Justice John Roberts running interference for the Obama Progressives?

Article III, Section 1 of the US Constitution states:

“The judicial Power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.”

One has to ask, with the caveat that Supreme Court Justices “shall hold their offices during good behaviour” we should all be asking – and asking our elected officials: What shall be done about Chief Justice Roberts; “bad behaviour”?

White House Responds To Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. Lawsuit

From The White House:

white_house

Statement by the Press Secretary Regarding Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

The health care law puts women and families in control of their health care by covering vital preventive care, like cancer screenings and birth control, free of charge.  Earlier this year, the Obama Administration asked the Supreme Court to consider a legal challenge to the health care law’s requirement that for-profit corporations include birth control coverage in insurance available to their employees.  We believe this requirement is lawful and essential to women’s health and are confident the Supreme Court will agree.

We do not comment on specifics of a case pending before the Court.  As a general matter, our policy is designed to ensure that health care decisions are made between a woman and her doctor.  The President believes that no one, including the government or for-profit corporations, should be able to dictate those decisions to women.  The Administration has already acted to ensure no church or similar religious institution will be forced to provide contraception coverage and has made a commonsense accommodation for non-profit religious organizations that object to contraception on religious grounds.  These steps protect both women’s health and religious beliefs, and seek to ensure that women and families–not their bosses or corporate CEOs–can make personal health decisions based on their needs and their budgets.

Obamacare Penalizes Married Couples

marriageCHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 26, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, punishes married couples by making it more difficult than unmarried couples to receive subsidies. Under the ACA, the less income earned, the more money is available to individuals from the government to pay for health insurance. In many low-income communities around the nation, marriage is now the exception rather than the rule and not getting married is the major tax shelter for low- and moderate-income households with children.

Couples living together who are not married could save up to $10,000 more than a married couple under Obamacare because the health care law requires married couples to combine income and prohibits them from filing as two individuals. On the other hand, an unmarried couple living together can file as two individuals. The disadvantage is for couples who choose marriage.

Heritage Foundation reports that in order to receive a government subsidy, a married couple must earn less than $62,040. Therefore, a married couple with each spouse making $35,000 annually for a combined income of $70,000 dollars would not qualify for a healthcare subsidy. In contrast, an unmarried couple with each partner making $40,000 for a combined income of $80,000 could qualify for thousands of dollars in subsidies. Whether this disparity was intentional or not, it is extremely damaging to the social fabric of our nation.

Dr. Richard Land, president of the SES, stated, “The fact that Obamacare penalizes married couples financially is about as counterproductive to stable families and a stable society as any government policy can be. The oldest axiom in public policy is: ‘That which you tax you’ll get less of. That which you subsidize you’ll get more of.’

“By financially penalizing marriage formation and conversely subsidizing non-married family units, government is acting in a way that the New Testament calls perverse. Romans 13 says that the civil magistrate is ordained to reward those who do that which is right and penalize those who do that which is wrong! Isn’t Obamacare doing exactly the opposite?”

Land goes on to say that Christians must be active participants in the culture war — standing firm against society-damaging issues such as the breakdown of family (penalizing marriage) and abortion — both of which are components within Obamacare.

SES has been ranked No. 1 for its General Christian Apologetics Graduate Program by TheBestSchools.org’s “Top 10 Graduate Programs in Christian Apologetics.” For more information, visitwww.ses.edu.

Missouri Legislator & Wife Ask Court for Protection During Obamacare Lawsuit Appeal

Thomas More Society Seeks Preliminary Injunction for State Rep. Wieland and Family

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 25, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Today, Thomas More Society attorneys filed for preliminary injunctive relief on behalf of Missouri State Representative Paul Wieland and his wife Teresa in the couple’s lawsuit contesting Obamacare’s infringement on their First Amendment rights. The couple is asking the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit to exempt their family from the Health and Human Services mandate that would require them to participate in group insurance coverage that includes abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and birth control for their teenage and adult daughters.

The Wielands are suing the federal government for violating their religious liberty, free speech, and parental rights by reason of Obamacare’s mandating a religiously objectionable health insurance plan provided by the State of Missouri. Beginning January 1, 2014, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act mandates that the Wielands obtain for themselves, and provide for their dependent daughters, health care coverage that includes coverage for “contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity.”

This coverage, which is abhorrent to the Wielands, given their Catholic faith, is mandated to continue until their dependent daughters are 24 years old. The Eighth Circuit court and other federal appellate courts have held that for-profit employers are likely to prevail on similar claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, because their free exercise of religious faith is substantially burdened when the government forces them to provide such coverage for their employees. The Wielands claim that their religious freedom — Paul’s as an employee and both Wielands, as parents, is also protected under the act.

The Wielands had previously obtained a health insurance plan that did not include abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives. But because of the Health and Human Services mandate, that plan was eliminated and, without their permission, the Wielands were transferred to another plan that is contrary to their Catholic faith.

“We liked our health care plan. We should be able to keep it,” Mrs. Wieland said. “It protected our religious beliefs and our rights as parents.”

To date, forty for-profit employers have filed lawsuits over the controversial Obamacare mandate. Thirty-two of the plaintiffs have secured injunctive relief against the mandate. “There is every reason to expect that the Wielands will also prevail in their quest to secure their religious liberty,” said Timothy Belz, special counsel for the Thomas More Society, who is representing the Wielands.

According to veteran court watchers, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday will consider whether to take up one or more of four cases on the mandate decided in the lower courts — including an appeal by the Obama Administration of the Hobby Lobby decision by the Tenth Circuit in June that upheld the right of the Christian craft store chain to exclude abortion-inducing drugs and devices in their employee’s health plans.

The lawsuit by the Wielands names the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, U.S. Department of the Treasury, and U.S. Department of Labor as defendants.

Whether it’s “down the rabbit hole”, or “through the looking glass”, the world of politics is often referred to in the lexicon given to us by Lewis Carroll. No matter what, those terms are resurrected when referring to something that has gone terribly wrong. And that’s what’s here on Jabberwonky…

Tonight: Liz discusses the latest round of epic failures happening when it comes to Obamacare, with Ali (@LibertyBelle38). Yes, there’s quite a lot in the headlines, and the mainstream media seems to be waking up at least a little. But, are we just seeing the tip of the iceberg on this? Is all the nonsense on the Hill just more rearranging of the deck chairs on the Titanic? Listen in to hear about how this is hitting the real world – Main Street America.

Media’s ‘Useful Idiots’

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propagandist

This morning as I walked into the post office, I could not help but notice that the propagandists, also known as “useful idiots,” are hard at work attempting to continue deceiving the American people into believing that Obamacare is what is needed to further the good of the people at large. That is, to take from the “haves” and give to the “have-nots,” only to serve corrupt government’s purposes – when in fact, the opposite is true.

Russian revolutionary and propagandist Vladimir Lenin said, “A good communist finds use for everything, and nothing is more useful than a useful idiot.”

Today, on a daily basis, we see media propagandists fronting for this administration and special interests.

Thomas Jefferson rightly said, “If your government is big enough to give you everything you want, it is big enough to take away everything you have.”

Throwing off all of the warnings that our forefathers have given, these “useful idiots” would have you overlook the corruption that is coming forth from this administration on a daily basis. They attempt to divert your attention from the facts, namely “The Law of the Land,” so that you will believe their contrived and fabricated lies, only to further their agenda.

Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional (Article I, Section 8, of the United States Constitution). It only becomes effective if the people fall into line with this administration’s unlawful and unconstitutional procedures.

In order to pull the mask off of those who affront our liberties, below is some information that will help you understand what you are up against.

Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman, two media scholars, interviewed 240 news anchors, editors and news writers. Here is what they found:

  • 47 percent believe adultery (cheating on your spouse) is OK (Exodus 20:14). This is illegal!
  • 76 percent see nothing wrong with homosexuality. “Crimes Against Nature!” (Romans 1:26, Leviticus 18:22). This is illegal!
  • 90 percent are for aborting babies. (Exodus 20:13) This is illegal! (Abortion has never been legalized! It may look like law, smell like law and may even have the color of law, but it is, in fact, not law!)
  • 86 percent seldom or never attend church.

 

Knowing that these people front for corruption, it is also important for the American people to know that the state-run-media, “useful idiots,” have less than a 21 percent approval rating. And folks, I have not even brought into the equation the “ground feeders” (you know them as “bloggers”) that work toward America’s demise right along with the state-run media, whom they emulate.

One of the tactics of this administration is to have you believe that they have “more numbers” than they actually do.

 

 

One should ask, “If they have all of this support, why then, would they have to lie?” Let me answer that for you: because they do not have the support! Headlines now declare, “White House scrambles to secure support for Obamacare.” (Leviticus 26:17-18)

 

 

I know that America is now in some serious and even dangerous times. It seems as if all hope is gone, but I would like to remind you, my friends, that hope is found in what you do with the truth you have been given. Do all that you can and leave the results up to God.

America, we can do this. (Psalm 119:90)

Think the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case was bad? You should see what MSNBC and Rachel Maddow did to Bradlee Dean. Help his lawsuit against them. Stand for America and get your free gift.
