A ‘Second Chance’ for HYPOCRITICAL Democrats!


Democrats Want a Second Chance on Obamacare!

The following is excerpted from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show (2/16/15)  on some foolish Democrats in Congress claiming the ‘unintended consequences’ of the disastrous Affordable (boy! THERE’S a misnomer if there ever was one!) Care Act are “unfair”!..

RUSH: Here’s this AP story on the Democrats. “Democrats Seek Relief From Obamacare Penalties — The official sign-up season for President Barack Obama’s health care law may be over, but leading congressional Democrats say millions of Americans facing new tax penalties deserve a second chance.”

A second chance? You’re the ones that saddle them with this mess. This is the Limbaugh Theorem on display. Here we have congressional Democrats acting like they had nothing to do with this law, that their voters are a bunch of victims of something. And they need a second chance. They need a second chance, ’cause the official sign-up season is ended, and these people didn’t know it, and now they’re saddled with higher costs and penalties and fines that they didn’t know that they were gonna be faced with, and the Democrat Party’s outraged and wants to do something about it. These people deserve a second chance.

This situation exists because the Democrat Party gave us this bill. The Democrat Party and the Democrat Party alone gave us Obamacare. There wasn’t a single Republican vote for it.

The three Democrats bellyaching are “Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington,” Baghdad Jim, “and Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010. The lawmakers say they are concerned that many of their constituents will find out about the penalties after it’s already too late for them to sign up for coverage, since open enrollment ended Sunday.”

Yeah, they did it! This is classic. These three Democrats, it even says here, they “worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.” But this story, they’re allowed to portray themselves like they have no idea any of this was gonna happen, and now their constituents are bellyaching to ’em, and their constituents deserve a second chance. As though some other group of people saddled them with this.This is so classic. Government comes along under the guise of fairness, fixes something, gonna make it fair, gonna make it equal, gonna make it affordable, maybe even make it free. What they end up doing is blowing it all to hell, screwing it up worse than it’s ever been screwed up, then their voters bellyache and complain about it, and the same Democrats come back and demand that something be done, because their voters need a second chance.

I’ll tell you, they can’t blame the Republicans for this because there isn’t a Republican fingerprint on Obamacare. The Republicans have done not one thing to support this. The Republicans, if they’ve done anything, and it’s been a while, but if they’ve done anything, it’s to try to stop it. So now these three Democrats are saying, government must do something, government must fix this mess. Government made this mess. The Democrat Party and Barack Obama made this mess.

“The lawmakers say they are concerned that many of their constituents will find out about the penalties after it’s already too late for them to sign up for coverage, since open enrollment ended Sunday. That means they could wind up uninsured for another year, only to owe substantially higher fines in 2016. The fines are collected through the income tax system.” Yeah, and wait ’til people find out how that happens. You Democrats think your constituents are mad now, you wait until next year when half or more of their refund is taken and kept by the IRS to pay their fine. You are gonna have an open revolt on your hands. And then you’re gonna bellyache and moan again and claim, “We gotta do something to fix it!” You broke it in the first place. It is your mess.

You know, there’s a part of me, just a small part of me, it’s Democrat voters who made all this possible, make ’em pay the consequence. You elected these charlatans. You openly elected these people. You buy into the lies they tell about how mean, evil, and all that the Republicans are. The Democrat Party voters’ best friend when it comes to Obamacare is any Republican he can find. And what does he probably think of any Republican you bring up? Racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobe, only cares about the rich banks, when in fact that is the Democrat Party today. Racist, sexist, bigot and phobic about practically everything, and tightly aligned with the banks.

It’s called crony corporatism, crony socialism, whatever you want to call it. And now all these people who elected all these Democrats to make it fair and to make it affordable. Life, not just health care, but make life fair, and to get even with all those rich people. Now they’re finding out that, oh, my God, it’s gonna cost me now. These same members of Congress who made this possible, made this happen, are now bellyaching that their voters got the shaft by somebody, and they need a second chance.

“This year is the first time ordinary Americans will experience the complicated interactions between the health care law and taxes. Based on congressional analysis, tax preparation giant H&R Block says roughly 4 million uninsured people will pay penalties.” And you know how that’s gonna happen. Their tax refunds, if they are due any, that’s where the money — it’s in the law. If you get a tax refund and you haven’t bought insurance, the fine will be held from your return, your refund.

You wait ’til that happens. Most people know that their refund is gonna be. Let’s say it’s a grand. They’ve already spent it before they got it. They’ve bought a mew muffler, whatever it is, they’ve spent it. And then all of a sudden that thousand-dollar refund becomes, say, 350 bucks, and they’re gonna do told, “Yeah, well, that’s the fine. It was in the law, it was in the law.”

“Nobody told us!” That’s probably right. And, by the way, AP, no sympathy for you. The AP’s writing about this as though, oh, look at how something is so unfortunate here. These poor voters, why, for the first time they’ll be saddled with the first law’s interactions with the law and tax. You knew this while it was being debated. The AP had the ability to tell voters the truth about this before it was voted on.

The entire Drive-By Media knew. Well, that maybe is an exaggeration. I don’t know how many of ’em actually read the health care law. But enough of them knew, enough to be able to tell voters that this law was gonna cost them much more money, that this law was not gonna reduce their costs at all. That was known. Anybody that ran around saying that was called a fearmonger or a liar, or worse, and now all of a sudden everything we’ve said about this bill every month or so, we’re validated again.And there’s a companion story to this, folks. This is in the UK Daily Mail: “Health and Human Services extends Obamacare deadline for some enrollees after computer glitch and long waits kept them from signing up over the weekend. The last day to sign up for Obamacare was Feb. 1, but as many as half a million Americans may have been unable to complete their applications. On Saturday an IRS function that verifies income was out of service, and over the weekend callers faced longer than normal wait times. Affected applicants will now have until Feb. 22 to sign up before they are assessed a fee of $325 or 2% of their income – whichever is greater.”

There is a ceiling on that at some point, but it’s much more than these people — out of their league. So these three members of Congress were able to get a one-week extension, yeah, Sander Levin, big Baghdad Jim McDermott, Lloyd Doggett of Texas, concerned that many of their constituents didn’t find out in time. Yeah, there was a glitch in the law there. Yeah, yeah, there was a glitch, we didn’t realize. Maybe they didn’t know, either. Hell, nobody read this thing. I wouldn’t be surprised if these clowns didn’t know what was in it. Actually, I don’t. I’m not gonna let ’em get by with that. They knew exactly what was in it.

They knew exactly what Obamacare was gonna do. They might not know the details, but they new exactly what this was: government taking over health care. They knew exactly what they were doing. They knew it was gonna cost people more money. They knew and anybody they told the opposite they were lying to. They knew this was not gonna make health care cheaper for people that buy it. People that get it free that’s a whole different ball of wax. But even the subsidy thing is all messed up now.

They knew it, the media and everybody, this was so unnecessary, this need not have happened. See, this is just the ancillary little problems you deal with when you’re taking over a country. “Ah, it’s okay, get some angry constituents for a couple of months, maybe a couple years, we’ll deal with it. But taking over the country, transforming the country and making it into what we want it to be, it’s worth a few people being upset now and then. We’ll deal with it.” And that’s exactly what is going on.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: In fact, I think it’s safe to say, if my memory on this is right, that Obama, in a speech or two, actually assured the American people that they would have an additional $2,500 every year, disposable income, after Obamacare was implemented. Because their premiums are gonna come down. He said the average premium would be $2,500 less. That means $2,500 more disposable income every American’s gonna have. Well, what the hell happened to that? Well, the thing about that was, it was never true. It was a lie from the get-go. Just as was, “You like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. You like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Everybody has known this is coming. Everybody has known that the vast majority of the American people have no idea what’s in this plan. They are laboring under misconception upon misconception. Chief among them is it’s gonna cost me less. In fact, it might even be free. The concept of a fine or a penalty, the Fourth Amendment battle over this, the government requiring you to buy a product escaped ’em. They didn’t have any idea what that’s about. So now this is all happening and they’re not prepared for it. “What do you mean, if I don’t have insurance by February 1st I gotta pay a fine?”

So members of Congress come along and act like they didn’t know it, either. They wrote the law. They voted for the law. They debated it. They did it. And yet they come along and act like they had no idea this was in there, and they’re gonna get to the bottom of it, they’re gonna find out who’s screwing their constituents. They had no idea it was there, which is a bunch of BS. It’s what these Democrats do every time, every damn time. It’s the Limbaugh Theorem. Make victims out of everybody, out of stuff you do to ’em, and then when it happens, blame the Republicans for it.
