I have a favor to ask of President Obama. As an American citizen, I assume I have that right because as a taxpayer, I pay his salary. So here goes…
Mr. President, please stop campaigning!
I will readily admit that I didn’t vote for then Senator Obama in 2008 because I disagreed with his positions, and found him to be both too shallow and too inexperienced to serve as president. And after his disastrous first term, I sure didn’t vote for him in 2012.
But the point remains that he is our duly-elected president. Unless fraud was committed on a grand and unprecedented scale, Mr. Obama won fairly and squarely both times.
Which is why I scratch my head every time I see President Obama out on the campaign trail, delivering one canned stump speech after another.
HACKED OFF: Hackers or careless bureaucrats could cause private information to be spilled across the Internet. But the federal government, unlike most states, don’t have to tell users when they have been compromised.
Americans who buy health insurance through the federal Obamacare exchange website could have their personal information stolen by hackers and never even know it.
Most of the state-run health exchange websites will be covered by state laws that require notification when government databases are breached by hackers. But there is no law requiring notification when databases run by the federal government are breached, and even though the Department of Health and Human Services was asked to include a notification provision in the rules being drawn up for the new federal exchange, it declined to do so.
Other protections for individuals’ privacy, like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, do not apply to the government-run exchange, only to health providers and insurance companies operating within the exchange.
No, Save Jerseyans, you can’t put a price on life. Ignorance? It comes pretty cheap in America 2013.
The following video isn’t from Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central or The Onion. It’s for realsies. Specifically, the YouTube short emedded below was the winning entry in a HHS-sponsored contest designed to reinforce sagging public confidence in the (Un)affordable Care Act; the featured young lady offers her pro-Obamacare rendition of the popular song “Price Tag.”
Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Union, Somerset and Morris) is demanding that the federal government move to protect the health insurance policies of 90,000 New Jersey Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield members.
On Monday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. at Borough Hall, Rep. Frank Pallone Jr.will speak about the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Pallone played a key role in writing the health reform bill and helped to guide it through the House and eventually into law. He will speak to us about the need for the ACA and the major benefits and cost savings available. Additional presenters include Enroll America and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) won’t help Barack Obama lie to the American people.
That’s the true effect of yesterday’s announcement by the Christie Administration that it’ll permit insurance companies to consider, on their own, whether to reinstate 800,000 cancelled New Jersey health insurance policies that didn’t comply with the Affordable Care Act’s mountain of silly, costly mandates.
A rare victory for the free market!
Ironically, as we’ve discussed before here at Save Jersey, it’s unlikely that most of these plans could’ve been reinstated even if DOBI agreed to act like Barack Obama’s heavy and tried to coerce the insurance industry’s compliance with POTUS’s executive order. He wasn’t trying to be generous, folks! The clear aim of Obama’s desperate move is to shift the blame for dropped coverage from Obamacare to the evil insurance companies for stubbornly refusing to comply with his 1-year health plan reprieve.
In other words, it’s a crude, transparent attempt to set up a scapegoat to cover for the massive lie that he kinda-sorta apologized for… having been caught.
Kudos to CJC for refusing to go along with him and it on this particular point.
I don’t disagree with anything Scott Garrett said during his latest appearance on Fox Business, Save Jerseyans, including his candid political analysis concerning the shocking rapid collapse of Obamacare:

The Washington Post reported a remarkable admission on Friday from one of the U.S. Senate’s most obnoxious leftists, Save Jerseyans:
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren’t fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
“I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but let’s hope that doesn’t happen,” Franken told MPR.
Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.
Are you listening, Bob Menendez (D-Dominican Republic) and Cory Booker (D-Twitter)? Start representing your constituents and quit defending the indefensible. Even Stuart Smalley tacitly acknowledges that the Obamacare experiment in socialized medicine is going off the rails. It’s implementation has been neither good enough nor smart enough and, gosh darn it, people hate this law!
