Hospitals forced to not see non-emergent patients under Obamacare beginning January 2014

Hospitals forced to not see non-emergent patients under Obamacare beginning January 2014

Hospitals and Emergency Centers are being forced to stop rendering healthcare to non-emergent patients beginning January 1, 2014  under the Affordable Healthcare, Obamacare guidelines.

The DSH or Disproportionate Sharing Hospitals will start seeing a large decrease in reimbursement rates to hospitals currently treating indigent, non insurance bearing patients.This action will force hospitals to seek alternatives to delivering “free” or “uncompensated” care just to survive.

Hospitals across America are starting to either opt to not see uninsured patients in an emergent setting, demand payment up front, link payment to a bank account (as reported by BCN in previous blogs) in order to survive.

DSH Reductions will force Emergency rooms, hospitals and providers to resort to third world tactics to survive in a post Obamacare reimbursement world.

Shadac reports; “A national total of Medicaid DSH money is allotted across the states each year, with a 2011 total of $11.3 billion (closer to 20 billion in 2013). ”

“The ACA (Obamacare) reduces the annual Medicaid DSH total by $500 million in 2014; $600 million in 2015; $600 million in 2016; $1.8 billion in 2017; $5 billion in 2018; $5.6 billion in 2019; and $4 billion in 2020.”  

“In implementing these reductions, the statute requires HHS (Health and Human Services) to develop a “DSH Health Reform methodology” that imposes the largest percentage reduction on states with the lowest percent of uninsured or on states that currently do NOT target their DSH payments to hospitals with high volumes of Medicaid patients or high levels of uncompensated care.”

Uncompensated care, decreased allotments to hospital and providers will tip the scale to the patient placing the burden of payment upon them. Those who wish to remain uninsured and reporting to a hospital with a non emergent condition will begin to be turned away. There is no other viable scenario at this juncture.

If you work in or are associated with providing care in an Emergent Center you know that a great percentage of what presents to the Emergency Room, the entry point of any hospital, is either non emergent or uninsured. This population, presently and in the past, was pretty much taken care of by the DSH allotment now being taken away by the Affordable Healthcare Act or Obamacare. 

This action will leave millions vulnerable and seeking a setting where healthcare is delivered by a cash only scenario with very little regulation, a black market approach if you will. The underground provider or nurse with the ability to diagnose and treat on the spot for cash, bypassing the whole system. Think it will not happen?It’s already happening.

The Patient Affordable Care Act was intended to catch those patients or provide the net that was previously cast by hospitals under the Disproportionate Sharing Hospital plan. That safety net is now being removed and many are not going to like the outcome. The  net now has a wide hole in it and patients will be falling through rapidly.

Obamacare was ideally supposed to be the safety net pulling in some 40  million plus uninsured, give them “free or a terrific deal” on an insurance policy that would fix all their healthcare needs, off setting the total cost of healthcare, leaving “all” to share the load, so to speak.

What the “healthcare system” and the patient population system failed to see coming was the disastrous roll out of Obamacare and the many unexpected costs and high premiums associated with it and the amount of people running from it!

With premiums as high as several thousands of dollars a month for a family plan, three to five hundred  for a single young adult you can easily see why those this bill was intended to help will only hurt.

The recent ACA website rollout with it’s whopping 6 patients enrolled and ballooning premiums has left many seeking healthcare seeing a bad case of sticker shock as hospitals and providers look for survival measure to mediate the losses, to balance their budgets.

The proportional shift of most of the cost to young people is forcing millions to reevaluate the “need” to purchase healthcare instead opting to pay the relatively small fine at the end of the year. This leaves many with the inability to seek non emergent healthcare.

A dilemma has surfaced with no quick fix in site and only surmounting issues. 

Millions of Americans and financially strapped families choosing to not participate in Obamacare are facing yet another hurdle. 

Higher premiums, cancelled policies, opting to not purchase government insurance has left many in a quandry with few options leaving many financially strapped individuals to choose between purchasing a bad government forced  insurance, not seek medical treatment or ultimately choosing to say the heck with it all, Im putting food on the table for my family. The latter is the dignified approach and probably the preferred alternative.

This shifts most of the cost now to the employer, small businesses, the middle class and the everyday citizen……you, John and Jane taxpayer.

Higher taxes, up to 20 new taxes in all, higher premiums, increased shared costs with fewer participants  leaves hospitals with no other viable choice but to cease treating patients ie; the uninsured, the immigrant and the non emergent.

EMTALA, a regulation that forces hospitals and providers to care for patients regardless of their ability to
pay will be challenged under new Obamacare guidelines. 

The challenge will now be if you want healthcare in my hospital, you must purchase the insurance that your government is forcing upon you or we cannot see you!

Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act has created a major “boondoggle” of sorts.

It has offered unaffordable, unreliable care, a poor payment structure, reduced reimbursements for hospitals, higher premiums while forcing you to participate and not doing so will result in higher taxes and fines for you not doing so. 

Obamacare has forgotten to close or mend the hole in the safety net. That proverbial hole being hospitals have now trumped the administration using their own rules closing the door to healthcare by opting out of your health care if you don’t buy the mandated government insurance. 

What does a patient do? What does a hospital or provider do?

Well, simply put, patients will continue out of neccesity to not purchase this high premium government insurance forcing hospitals and providers to shut their doors till you purchase the insurance for your non emergent needs?

Will the government now say to the hospitals you must treat these patients regardless of their ability to pay per EMTALA regulations or force you to buy the insurance that the hospitals are now both saying you must buy to dart the door of our emergency room?

 Nothing would surprise me but a simple statement like that would not support the governments plan of forced or mandated healthcare for everyone, this rendering EMTALA non-existent.

Obamacare has contributed to this boondoggle by introducing the Individual Shared Responsibility plan and has placed upon you yet another way to make you pay for your healthcare.

Introducing the Individual Shared Responsibility plan under the  Affordable Care Act directly from the ACA healthcare exchange site.

Beginning January 2014, the Individual Shared Responsibility provision calls for each individual to either have minimum essential coverage (whatever that is) for each month, qualify for an exemption, or make a payment when filing his or her federal income tax return. 

On Aug. 27, 2013, the Department of the Treasury and the IRS issued final regulations on the Individual Shared Responsibility provision, Notice 2013-42….

The open enrollment period to purchase health insurance coverage for 2014 through the Health Insurance Marketplace runs from Oct. 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014.

The American Emergency Physician Association has prepared a statement regarding reimbursement under the ACA or Obamacare and I summarize. (See link below for full statement)

The ACA forces doctors, hospitals and providers to treat every pt under EMTALA while reimbursement rates go down. 

The ACA forces non good faith reimbursement scenarios where the hospital is forced to take care of patients with shrinking reimbursement from the government while private insurers reap the benefit of taking advantage of a low loss scenario having the distinct advantage of bypassing the benefit of a high cost uninsured patient population.

This has left hospitals, mainly Emergency Centers to force payment up front or stop treating non emergent patients.

Recently information was passed to Bradley County News from a social media website that depicts the following,

The Appalachian Regional Healthcare system in Kentucky has made the unprecedented move to opt out of treating non-emergent patients. 

A flyer or memo has  recently been sent out to patients and posted in their ERs which states, “Attention patients: Consistent with the Affordable Care Act, we will no longer be able to see  non emergent patients without healthcare coverage beginning January 2014!” The saga begins!

Can you see what is happening here? 

The government is saying you must purchase insurance, the hospitals must provide care  regardless of ability to pay under EMTALA, decreasing reimbursement to those providing care and now the hospitals are taking the desperate steps to say NO, we can no longer see you unless you purchase mandated insurance by the Federal government.  

The end scenario: 

Patients will be unable to enter the ER for non emergent care. They will be unable to pay for a Doctors office visit. This will leave millions without a portal of entry and forced to stand outside hospital doors begging for care and access or seek alternative, perhaps underground behind the scenes treatment inside a newly developed black market.

This is reminiscent of third world country healthcare, then again this end product is intentional isn’t it?

 It is about control of the populace?

Right?

Obama regime silencing insurance executives from reporting Obamacare issues

Obama regime silencing insurance executives from reporting Obamacare issues

CNN reports today that the Obama regime is attempting to silence critics inside the private insurance industry from speaking out about the unsuccessful Obamacare rollout and plan issues.

Many media outlets are reporting that the Obama regime is telling “healthcare experts” to shut up and remain silent. 

“White House public relations experts from DC have no idea how to run health care.” Many are fearing a backlash from the White House” an insurance expert reiterated!

Robert Laszewzki, of the Insurance Trade Association says, the Obama administration does not trust the Heathcare industry experts, they think they are smarter than us!

Drew Griffin, a CNN investigative reporter says insurance executive are growing fearful of a backlash from the White House PR team that is basically their biggest customer. The US Government currently provides 48 percent of the total revenue for private insurance companies. That number is expected to grow as the US government takes over more of the insurance industry. 

The government with the Obama administrations obvious attempts to squash the fact that many people will not be able to keep their current private healthcare plans or doctors because the demands and changes of Obamacare cannot be met is the flash point. This is causing many to lose their current healthcare plans, a contradictory statement made earlier by the president.

Media sources are reporting that possibly, this week up to 75 percent of those privately covered will lose their current plans and will receive letters of that confirmation in the coming days.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Obama administration is out of control. We, who have been fighting this for years knew a government sponsored takeover would not be good for you. We knew it would be expensive and many would not be able to pay for it. We knew the IRS enforcing this enormous mandated tax on the citizens of this country would be devastating. But, I dare say many expected it to be as bad as it is. 

We must put pressure on our elected officials and encourage these insurance executives to continue to speak out and against this takeover. 

Perhaps the insurance executives were silent for many years prior to the rollout and were greatly participatory in it’s rollout and I think they are now paying for that silence.

The fact is they were misguided by the Obama administration and clearly the people of this country was misled when they were told that you can keep you Doctor and your current healthcare plan. I don’t believe even those inside the insurance Industry saw this coming. 

Many attempted to forewarn but few listened. Now, we must pay for a way overreaching federal government takeover and answer to a dictator that is dead set on doing exactly as he wishes despite the calls now from the left and the right to stop and turn direction.

Please watch this video of live CNN Coverage below and pass this info around. 

It’s the information that Obama regime does not want to get out!  Hiding the message hides the truth and the truth will stop his encompassing plan of plunging our country into the abyss.

Tea Party destroys the nation, shuts down government but remains an irrelevant minority?

Tea Party destroys the nation, shuts down government but remains an irrelevant minority? 

The political pundits in DC have finally tired of blaming everything on George Bush and have shifted all the blame for everything wrong with Washington on the Tea Party.

Hearing the left and some on the right speak of the Tea Party stating they are a terribly disorganized bunch of malevolents, racists, terrorists, jihadist and anarchist with barely the membership to exist, irrelevant is humorous.

Everything from bad policy to Obamacare,to shutting down government is being blamed on one “small irrelevant” group. Doesn’t it leave the impression that this is a pretty formidable group capable of changing the state of our country with great force and might and no credit is given, only blame?

The attacks are coming on the hills of a very effective movement by the Tea Party in the last few weeks. This group seemingly has matured beyond rallies and rah rah moments to a well oiled and increasingly influential political group with devout and passionate members. The Tea Party is starting to organize, to put structure to a fluid movement, to scare the left and the not so right in DC! 

An example of the bigotry coming from the beltway is when Harry Reid on September 23rd, 2013 stated “We’re not going to bow to tea party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law.” “We will not bow to tea party anarchists who refuse to accept that the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is constitutional,” Reid said in a blistering opening speech. “The simple fact remains: Obamacare is the law of the land and will remain the law of the land as long as Barack Obama is president of the United States and as long as I’m Senate majority leader.”

Seems to me Harry is pretty worried and concerned that he is losing strength and power and that perhaps Obamacare could be dead in the water come mid term elections in 2014!

The recent attacks or flak being fired at Tea Party members all over the nation tells me that the Tea Party is over the intended target and is obviously rattling their chains.

The mere statement that pundits are saying the Tea Party  is non existent and incapable of doing anything constructive is inaccurate at best. 

The Tea Party is getting blamed for a boat load of things yet the left will never admit that the Tea Party is anything more than bumbling idiots with nothing better to do than stop the daily tyranny by the Obama regime? These actions speak volumes about a “small” but effective group.

Getting blame or credit for “ruining” every thing good in the country on the Tea party means we must be providing the bee in their bonnets, causing the left to squirm spurring vicious attacks on every day Americans on a daily basis. Meaning, the movement is doing exactly what it was intended to do! 

What you are seeing is an awakening of the people and a strengthening of a movement that is resilient and unbendable in the face of controversy, rhetoric and hate speech. 

The strength of the Tea Party and what you perhaps do not understand is that they are everyday Americans, not jihadist, anarchists, obstructionist or racist, they love their country to the core!

We wait on your tables, serve your coffee, fill your cars with gas, save your life in an emergency, sell your home, cash your checks, bag your groceries and even fix your plumbing and overflowing septic tanks. We are not freaks of nature, we are you. And the left is attacking you!

We are also a huge voting block and the left knows it. This is frightening to them who have a separate, differing agenda. 

A diamond is forged under extreme pressure and maturation, a Tea Partier is formed in much the same way. You apply dictatorial tyrannical pressure and that forms a bond stronger than steel. 

I am glad folks like the main stream media, liberals and RINOS have chosen this fight. Because of you the Tea Party is solidifying and regrouping amidst the attacks on everyday Americans working hard to provide a roof over their family’s heads. 

 The continuous spewing of rhetoric has an unintended outcome and by applying “pressure” it’s secures our country and the movement in ways you have yet to see and will probably never understand. 

The American spirit is inbred and like red blood cells and bone marrow it will always be a part of the Tea Party well into the next century. 

My parting advice is don’t apply excessive pressure on these lumps of coal unless you want to increase it’s worth and purpose.   

Republicans had best rethink the policy of distancing themselves from  perhaps its strongest and most passionate members. That’s a dangerous game with deleterious consequences.

We are not going away, we are no longer needing a marketing plan to recruit, Americans are flocking to the Tea Party for answers in droves.

Like it or not this little bitty group of irrelevant racists and jihadists are here to stay.

Obamacare: Forced home inspections for “high risk” patients ie;  veterans, smokers and young mothers.

In Uncategorized on October 11, 2013 at 1:19 PM

Obamacare: Forced home inspections for “high risk” patients ie;  veterans, smokers and young mothers.

With the Obamacare Healthcare Law going into effect October 1st, 2013, the Health and Human services agency has recently revealed that you may be subject to rigorous home  and safety inspections if you fall into these  “high-risk” categories below:

Families where mom is not yet 21.

Families where someone is a tobacco user.

Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.”

Freedom Outpost reports, “In 2011, HHS, Health and Human Services announced a $224 million grant will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.” 

Individuals from the state will implement these leveraging strategies to “enhance program sustainability.”

Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states,

“This is not a “voluntary” program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. 

A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to “intervention” in “school readiness” and “social-emotional developmental indicators.” 

A farm family may be subject to “intervention” in order to “prevent child injuries.” The sky is the limit.

Although the Obama administration would claim the provision applies only to Medicaid families, the new statute, by its own definition, has no such limitation. Intervention may be with any family for any reason. 

It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain medications and vaccines and even having more limited – or no – interaction with parents. 

The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”

Part of the program will require massive data collecting of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source.

A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard  and will require inspectors to verify safety compliance and record each inspection into a database.

The law under Obamacare was initially believed to be geared toward child and parents of high risk youths. But you can see where the added oversight and safety portions of the law could be interpreted any number of ways and the overreach necessary in the eyes of a federal agent, perhaps an IRS agent that will now be given enforcement powers under Obamacare.

Once the doors start opening and the forced inspections begin you can see where smokers, vets and gun owners could be targeted and the law expanded/interpreted to meet many agendas under the banner of safety and efficiency.

In South Carolina, Representative Bill Chumley introduced a bill, H.3101 that would nullify certain provisions of Obamacare. 

The bill would give the state attorney general the authority to authorize law enforcement to arrest federal agents for trespassing. 

It would make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in South Carolina. It passed in the House but died in the senate.

Recently and a prime example of a law written for one purpose and it gets used for a variety of reasons. A mother of a child requested a second opinion regarding a diagnosis given to her child. Instead of granting the request they sent federal agents and police to her home.

World Net Daily, WND, has reported on one such case, which soon could be typical.

It’s the case of Baby Samuel Nikolayev, who was removed by police from his mother’s arms because his parents sought to obtain a second medical opinion about a health matter.

The mother, Anna Nikolayev, is one who does not trust the system.

Crying, she said: “You can’t break into my house and take my child. They ripped my child out of my arms.”

She told WND that she still worries CPS, Child Protective Services workers will find other reasons to take her child or other children wrongly.

Unless we speak up and out and demand that our elected representatives stop this onslaught and overreach by our federal government, we will continue to see this type of abuse and tyranny. 

We will regretfully begin to acknowledge this as the norm and we will just lay in wait for the next abuse of power and the treadmarks on the backside of our freedoms will be all the more familiar and accepted. 

We are in the midst of Socialist/Marxist turnover of our state and nation. Grab your seats! It’s fixing to get very interesting!

Local “political activist” for Obamacare apparently has glitches of his own

Local “political activist” for Obamacare apparently has glitches of his own

The truth is surfacing about a recent article in the Chattanooga Times Free Press just released.

Many news outlets in just a few hours are reporting on the successes of a young Flintstone Georgia boy Chad Henderson and him overcoming many glitches to become the poster boy for Obamacare and the reasons we all should sign up for it immediately.

Initially, the story reported that Mr Henderson after many attempts had overcome many “glitches” and “obstacles” to finally sign up for 
Obamacare, becoming the only one to do so successfully in the area.

His hard fought battle has a few glitches of it’s own, many sources are revealing.

It appears and the sources are literally minutes old but seem to be credible that this story may not be what it seems.

News of this story is trending on multi media websites and as personal affirmations and investigations are revealing that this story has many holes.

It appears this young man has been duped and made a poster boy by the main stream media and the left to satisfy their desire to advance the healthcare reform message.

 The media seemed to be dead set in being the first to get a story out about the successes of signing up for Obamacare and have fallen short of their own expectations.

According to the sources below and on social media, Chad Henderson was a volunteer for Organized for America, later renamed Organized for Action, a big corporate lobbying group for Obamacare Healthcare implementation.

It is also being reported that in spite how the story is being reported his father, Bill Henderson,states that to his knowledge, his son has not signed up for Obamacare and the only thing he signed up for was Organized for Action.

He has been quoted as saying he has  not signed up for Obamacare but has filled out a questionnaire, but intends to get coverage soon.

My first contact with this story left me thinking, why would a college student, political activist, political analyst of 21 years old be happy about surrendering up to 25 percent of his income to the Obamacare forced mandate in the form of another tax, referring to a 200 dollar a month premium for healthcare coverage. 

A quick glimpse of his social media sites showed this young man has been set up to be a pawn for a while. His appointments by Bob Corker, his voting debut for Obama, his activity with Lead America, Organized for America and his trip to China as a local ambassador to China has set him up for this debacle being played out in the media today.

I find it peculiar and sad that the MSM has apparently used this young man as a poster boy for the argument for and against healthcare implementation. 

The portrayal of this young man as the way we should do things says volumes about the ethics within solid reporting and the responsibility that goes with it.

This boy seems vulnerable and naive to the great big world of media manipulation and the gain they surely hoped to receive from it in the form of selling the news and advancing the message of the left.

I genuinely feel for this young man as he discovers that the people who choose to spotlight him for a news story do not consider the ramifications and downside of a news story perhaps placed in haste fail to see the downside of errant reporting or inaccurate reporting. In the same sense, I feel he has failed to realize that making a political statement without the supporting actions is a dangerous game to play.

I sincerely consider the welfare of this boy and hope he has a supportive and engaging family as his world may change forever as the “big stage” media gets ahold of this an exploits him as a vile person.

Hopefully, the lesson learned for this boy is never step into the spotlight and not realize that the reason you are there is to be a sacrificial lamb of the media to advance a political agenda.

God Bless you Chad, I believe the next few weeks will be tough for you as you step from a political healthcare hero to an unaware, perhaps a somewhat willing participant shill for the Obama Regime.

BCN side note:

I am really sorry that this lad has been manipulated in this way. I hope him the best and he truly seems like a great kid. I only wish he had not gotten drawn into this drama.

The article above is only my opinion based on facts reported from other media sites. I have not been able to to contact Mr Henderson as yet but certainly hope too and hear us story directly.

My information is based solely on my skills of observation, personal research and my reliance of the main stream media to form my opinion.

Have a blessed day.

Timeline on government shutdown reveals Harry Reid is a liar

Timeline on government shutdown reveals Harry Reid is a liar

HARRY REID is a liar! 

His take on the issue of the government shutdown is that the anarchist, the Tea Party and many Republicans caused or refused to compromise to prevent the shut down of government.

The truth is Harry Reid refused right up to the very last vote to prevent the shutdown. Not one compromise!  Nothing!  The country and it’s government was shut down last night around midnight because he and the Democrats refused to compromise.

It is time the truth gets out to all. Please spend alot of time spreading the message. 

The timeline below and a short message is from the Tea Party Patriots and Jenny Beth Martin to many “anarchists” across the country.

TPP memo:

You have surely seen the media, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, President Obama, and the ruling elite in Washington try to pin the blame of the government shut down on the Tea Party. These allegations simply aren’t true. 

You can see the timeline of events below. The evidence clearly shows that this shut down belongs to Harry Reid and the fact that the Senate Democrats are relentlessly REFUSING to compromise.

For now, our work is still not done. Pressure is already mounting on the Republicans in the House to cave and give Barack Obama and Harry Reid everything they want. Even though just the other day the President acknowledged that no one gets 100% of what they want.

Harry Reid even had the nerve today to continue to call the Tea Party anarchists on the floor of the Senate. He then went on to try to lecture us about the proper budget process of the Federal Government. This is after he FAILED to pass a budget in the Senate for 4 years!

Patriots, this fight isn’t over. The fight has just begun. We must continue to demand that the House stand strong and do whatever they can to stop Obamacare. 

We also need to send a strong message to Senate Democrats that it is time they stop playing games and listen to the will of the American people. 

Obamacare is destroying jobs, forcing people to lose hours, lose insurance, lose their doctors, and none of the Senate Democrats seem to care.

Call Your Senators and Representative today and tell them to start listening. Obamacare isn’t good enough for big business, big labor, or Congress, so it isn’t good enough for the American people!

Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121

The revealing timeline and Harry Reids refusal to compromise:

Time Line of Continuing Resolution Debate:

Friday, 9/20/13 – The House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution that would fully fund the government (including things that Republicans don’t like) while at the same time defunding Obamacare.
Result: House Republicans COMPROMISED on spending that we’d like to see cut in exchange for defunding Obamacare.

Friday, 9/27/13 – The Senate stripped the defunding language out of the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats REFUSED to compromise.

Saturday, 9/28/13 – The House of Representatives added two amendments to the Senate revised Continuing Resolution to delay Obamacare for one year (far from what we were originally willing to agree to) and repeal the medical device tax.
Result: House Republicans COMPROMISED away from defunding to delaying Obamacare for one year.

Healthcare premiums rise 173 percent under Obamacare in TN for young adults

Healthcare premiums rise 173 percent under Obamacare in TN for young adults

As College age adults are stepping out of the public indoctrination system and into the corporate world to make their mark they are being struck with a 173 percent insurance  premium hike by the Obama regime.

DC will be relying on their income to foot the majority of costs inside the newly implemented healthscare scheme and will undoubtedly see their premiums rise even further in the next few years as cost burdens are shifted to them.

The plan is devious yet ingenious. Think about it. Who typically uses less insurance than others? Right. Young people for the most part with no chronic or pre-existing conditions or revenue consuming health conditions. Pay in with very little withdrawal or drain on the system. That’s the plan.

MSM and assorted news outlets have been reporting that Tennessee youth will only have to pay 119.00 dollars per month under Obamacare, this is less than expected as the memo below eludes too. But not less than they are already paying. Did you catch that? Less than expected!

In TN the average 27 to 30 year old young adult, according to the GAO- Government Accountability Organization and DHHS- Department of Health and Human Services recently reported that in TN the average premium will be 173.6 percent higher next year from their pre Obamacare premiums.

State of TN:

Obamacare monthly premium:
119.00 dollars or 30.00 dollars a week

Pre-Obamacare monthly:
43.50 dollars or 10.80 cent a week

Dollar increase:
75.50 dollars

Percentage increase:
173.56 

Remember, many of these youth will only make a few hundred dollars a week at minimum wage. Many  have elected to not carry health insurance, because they frankly don’t think they will need it, this saving income for their disposal. Now they will be forced to pay relatively higher premiums resulting in a decrease in disposable income. Essentially an additional 20 percent tax placed upon them by our federal government.

Minimum wage workers are facing a drop in employment hours to 29 hours thus keeping their employer from paying their portion of healthcare premiums. This drop in hours will take an ample portion of their income and result in further loss of income.

A young person making minimum wage and 29 hours a week could plan on making:

210 dollars per week before taxes.

168 after taxes at 20 percent

134 dollars after Obamacare healthcare tax, another 20 percent of income lopped off.

Figure in a car payment, rent, dental, life ins, utilities, gas, food and electricity you can see what is going to happen, creeping debt and a negative income to debt ratio, otherwise owing the government more than you make.

Eventually and perhaps already, these young adults will realize that they are nothing more than a slave, a serf, fully dependent on the government to provide all their needs. Socialism is on the horizon and the transition near completion. 

The inundation and shock on our system will leave you working just to pay your debt and at the end of a work week, you reach for a check or cash and you are given a coupon for bread, milk cheese and enough gas to get you back and forth to work. 

All while  living in government occupation pods complete with smart meters, in a downtown high rise, devoid of private property, with a windmill and a solar panel to heat your pod enough to keep you functional and alive to work another day.

Below is an excerpt from a  Memorandum by RNC Research Director Kris Anderson sent out this month explaining the graph in the link below reflecting on the info above and how it was calculated.

“To complete a fair analysis, we looked at two sets of data at RNC Research. First, we took the HHS-released data on the lowest average monthly premium of a bronze plan for a 27-year-old in the various states under the exchanges. We compared those rates against the states’ average premiums for 30-year old nonsmoking males that were included in a July 2013 study from the U.S. Government Accountability Office. We calculated out the difference between the premium rates. In every state, there’s a sizable increase.”

“We do realize there are more things that play into these calculations, but the takeaway is pretty clear: when talking about premiums, ObamaCare is bad news for the average American.”

Below is a breakdown link showing percentage increase in Obamacare premiums per state.

Obamacare: Cheapest bronze plan premiums exceed $ 20,000./yr

IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family

In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year. Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.

The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.

Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.

In the new final rules published Wednesday, IRS set in law the rules for implementing the penalty Americans must pay if they fail to obey Obamacare’s mandate to buy insurance.

To help illustrate these rules, the IRS presented examples of different situations families might find themselves in.

In the examples, the IRS assumes that families of five who are uninsured would need to pay an average of $20,000 per year to purchase a Bronze plan in 2016.

Using the conditions laid out in the regulations, the IRS calculates that a family earning $120,000 per year that did not buy insurance would need to pay a “penalty” (a word the IRS still uses despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is in fact a “tax”) of $2,400 in 2016.

For those wondering how clear the IRS’s clarifications of this new “penalty” rule are, here is one of the actual examples the IRS gives:

“Example 3. Family without minimum essential coverage.

“(i) In 2016, Taxpayers H and J are married and file a joint return. H and J have three children: K, age 21, L, age 15, and M, age 10. No member of the family has minimum essential coverage for any month in 2016. H and J’s household income is $120,000. H and J’s applicable filing threshold is $24,000. The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000.

“(ii) For each month in 2016, under paragraphs (b)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(iii) of this section, the applicable dollar amount is $2,780 (($695 x 3 adults) + (($695/2) x 2 children)). Under paragraph (b)(2)(i) of this section, the flat dollar amount is $2,085 (the lesser of $2,780 and $2,085 ($695 x 3)). Under paragraph (b)(3) of this section, the excess income amount is $2,400 (($120,000 – $24,000) x 0.025). Therefore, under paragraph (b)(1) of this section, the monthly penalty amount is $200 (the greater of $173.75 ($2,085/12) or $200 ($2,400/12)).

“(iii) The sum of the monthly penalty amounts is $2,400 ($200 x 12). The sum of the monthly national average bronze plan premiums is $20,000 ($20,000/12 x 12). Therefore, under paragraph (a) of this section, the shared responsibility payment imposed on H and J for 2016 is $2,400 (the lesser of $2,400 or $20,000).” SOURCE :

Alert: THE WHITE HOUSE IS COMING…..for your guns!!

In Uncategorized on January 17, 2013 at 3:04 PM

The most expansive gun control measures were passed yesterday by the president issuing 23 new Executive Orders that will lead to the outright ban of guns in our country. The 23 orders use mental health as a vice to capture the guns if not only the mentally ill but those perhaps on psych meds for depression or ADHD. The gun control measures
also call for the monitoring of your mental status using your private medical records submitted and used under the guidelines of AHCA, Affordable Health Care Act or better known as Obamacare.

Today, the NRA warns of total and unconstitutional gun confiscation! Are you awake yet?

This president and many within his grasps are after your guns! This is now at critical mass and the nations inactivity and the inaction of our elected representatives will allow this to happen.

The 2nd Amendment, our Constitution and our country are at risk today, right now!

As Paul Revere once warned us the redcoats were coming, I now, as Paul Revere, issue the warning to you!

THE WHITE HOUSE IS COMING, THE WHITE HOUSE IS COMING…….for your guns!!!

In an email sent to National Rifle Association members on Thursday, the head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) warned that politicians in Washington D.C. were “closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”

“President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox wrote in the email. “Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and ‘buyback’ program – where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!”

The NRA-ILA is the lobbying arm of the NRA. Cox’s email came a day after President Obama announced 23 executive actions he plans to take to reduce gun violence in response to the massacre in Newtown, Conn. last month. Neither confiscation nor buybacks were on Obama’s list, nor were they part of the sweeping legislative proposals the President made on the subject.

“[T]he fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes,” Cox wrote.

The email was also a fundraising pitch. It warned that President Obama “recently pledged to raise $20 million to ram his gun ban agenda through Congress,” and reminded members that the President has “plenty of rich, gun-hating friends in Hollywood, along with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will shower him with the money he needs to strip you of your gun rights.”

“So please, whatever you can afford to give NRA-ILA right now, I need you to do it,” Cox wrote. “Whether it’s as little as $10, or as much as $150 or more, every single dollar will go toward winning this once-in-a-generation battle to save our Second Amendment freedom. AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR YOU GIVE TODAY COUNTS!”

Read the full text of the email here:

There are political fires raging across Capitol Hill right now and they’re closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government.

Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and “buyback” program – where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!

NONE of this would have the slightest impact on making our children, our homes, or our communities safer. And that’s sad, because now more than ever, we need our elected officials to take serious steps toward improving public safety… particularly in our nation’s schools.

But the fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes.

Your NRA-ILA is fighting every hour of every day to hold the line, but there is no way we can win without your full and active participation RIGHT NOW.

President Barack Obama recently pledged to raise $20 million to ram his gun ban agenda through Congress. And Obama’s got plenty of rich, gun-hating friends in Hollywood, along with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will shower him with the money he needs to strip you of your gun rights.

I don’t have friends like that. I’ve got something much better…YOU. You know what’s at stake. You love your freedom and your country, and I know you’re willing to STAND AND FIGHT to save both of them.

So please, whatever you can afford to give NRA-ILA right now, I need you to do it.

Whether it’s as little as $10, or as much as $150 or more, every single dollar will go toward winning this once-in-a-generation battle to save our Second Amendment freedom. AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR YOU GIVE TODAY COUNTS!

Your contributions to NRA-ILA support our fight on your behalf in the halls of Congress and across the country. Your contributions are the lifeblood of our legislative and legal initiatives, research, educational pieces, press activities, and all of our pro-gun advertising and grassroots activism.

There is no other way to put it: Our strength comes from you. Our ability to win comes from you. That’s why I’m asking you to help save our Second Amendment by making NRA-ILA stronger than ever before.

Thank you for everything you do to support NRA-ILA and defend freedom.

Please help as soon as you can.

Sincerely,

Chris

Obama launches 23 executive orders to advance gun control agenda

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2013 at 1:33 PM

Hot off the presses: Obama launches 23 executive orders to advance gun control agenda!

The president of the United States just issued 23 new executive orders to push his socialistic agenda of eventually taking your gun rights away from free Americans.

In a press release the White House issued a complete list of orders that will lead to banning guns in the US forever and eroding our constitutional, God given rights.

Our country is in the midst of a complete transition to a socialistic dictatorship. Our forseeable legacy and sadly so we are inevitably going to be known as the generation that let our country and it’s greatness collapse right along with it’s freedoms.

We cannot allow this to happen! Contact your Congress men and women, Senators and Governors and demand they stop this dictator NOW!

We are no longer in a might or conspiratorial mode, we are in it’s happening as you read this. Our country and it’s Socialist Dictator is making his move. We have stood back and observed long enough. We must get our elected body to once again represent the people. We must save this great country! What a shame to see her fold!

Take a look at these extensive executive orders. It seems he is going after our guns with the mental health care issues. Ever had a breakdown? Ever just talked with a psych Dr? Have PTSD? Take psych meds? On Ritalin? Antidepressant? Yeah thats a great deal of Americans. And guess what? He is using Obamacare, aka, the Affordable Care Act to access your records to clear you for your ability to carry a gun!

Concerned now? Best be! Gonna be alot of changes you are not going to like. Going to be a real tough pill to swallow.
