Ann Coulter: How Delta Airlines Wrecked American Health Care

I think I’ve found the core problem with health care in America. And guess what? It involves Delta Airlines!

A few weeks ago, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was going on and on about a “single insurance provider” that pays for 49 percent of all births, as well as full health care costs of almost 40 percent of all children in the United States. This single “insurer,” Maddow said, was the biggest “health insurance provider in the country by a mile.”

Maddow was talking about Medicaid, which, of course, is not “insurance” but “welfare.”

When we’re allowed to call things whatever we want in order to win an argument, there is a total breakdown in democratic politics, fair commerce, and social interaction.

Thus, for example, until we get our terms straight, Americans will be forced to keep paying through the nose whenever they try to buy actual health insurance — because they aren’t buying health insurance; they’re paying for other people’s welfare. Washington will never be able to make it legal to sell real health insurance — because, if they try, the welfare recipients will mob congressional offices claiming that Republicans are murdering them.

There is no truth in any discussion of Obamacare. Currently, the most persistent lie is the claim that — according to scoring by the CBO! — 22 million Americans would “lose” their health insurance under the Senate health care bill. Turn on the TV right now and you’ll hear someone saying this.

“A new (CBO) budget score said 22 million more Americans would lose health coverage under this plan …”

— Poppy Harlow, CNN, June 27, 2017

“A score from the Congressional Budget Office … said the Republican bill to kill Obamacare would kick 22 million Americans off their health insurance.”

— Rachel Maddow, June 27, 2017

“The clock is ticking on the Senate health care bill as the CBO estimates 22 million people will lose their insurance.”

— Chris Hayes, June 26, 2017

HELLO? REPUBLICANS? ANY OF YOU GUYS WANT TO REBUT THAT? IT’S PRETTY EASY TO DO!

The actual CBO report says nothing of the sort. People citing the “22 million” figure didn’t read past the CBO’s headline-grabbing paragraph at the top of the “Summary” page.

In fact, the CBO merely estimates that — in the year 2026 — 22 million Americans who otherwise would have been forced by the Obamacare penalty to buy health insurance will choose not to buy insurance once the penalty is gone. By “people thrown off their health insurance,” liberals mean: “people who voluntarily decide not to have health insurance.” (More accurately, “people who choose not to prove to the government that they have health insurance.”)

To use the word “lose” here is absurd. It would be like saying that Nixon ending the draft meant that 50,000 American men would “lose” their military service. The poor lads would be forced to volunteer.

Last year, I chose to end my New York Times subscription. I wasn’t “thrown off” the Times’ subscriber list. In full possession of the facts, I made an informed decision that I no longer wanted to receive the Times — just as 22 million Americans (the CBO guesses) will make an informed decision in the year 2026 not to have health insurance, if given that option.

Redefining words like “insurance” and “lose” to mean whatever the speaker wants them to mean makes human conversation impossible. We can still grunt, howl and shiver when it’s cold, but we will no longer have the ability to communicate slightly more complex thoughts to one another.

The only solution is for the rest of us to impose a broken windows policy on the truth, demanding it in every walk of life. If liars continually get away with it, their lies will only become more preposterous and more enraging.

Illegal aliens are not “undocumented immigrants.” They’re not “immigrants” at all. Immigrants wait in line and jump through hoops to be here. They are invited, by us, to come. Illegals cut to the head of the line whenever the mood strikes them, without waiting for an invitation.

When you have a “reserved seat” on Delta, it means you expect to be given that seat and not have your ticket snatched from your hand, then moved to a worse seat — only to get abused on social media by an imperious corporation for talking about it on Twitter.

(Idea for new Delta motto: “If you like your seat, you can keep your seat!”)

This is why the “Seinfeld” exchange with a car rental company struck such a chord. It was about the infuriating result when words like “reservation” have no meaning:

Jerry: I don’t understand. I made a reservation. Do you have my reservation?

Rental car agent: Yes, we do. Unfortunately, we ran out of cars.

Jerry: But the reservation keeps the car here. That’s why you have the reservation.

Rental car agent: I know why we have reservations.

Jerry: I don’t think you do. If you did, I’d have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don’t know how to hold the reservation. And that’s really the most important part of the reservation: the holding. Anybody can just take them.

‘Fake News Industrial Complex’: Dr. Seb Gorka Defines the Enemy ‘Opposition Party’ Media

A follow-up to yesterday’s post:

Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Deputy Assistant to President Donald J. Trump, has taken the next major step in the war against the legacy, establishment media: He has now defined the enemy.

 President Trump and White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon—who along with Gorka is a former Breitbart News official—earlier this year identified the media class as the “opposition party.”

That happened in late January, just after the inauguration. Bannon infamously teased the media alongside White House chief of staff Reince Priebus as reporters lined an area of the White House at one point, saying there’s “the opposition party, all lined up.” Read the rest of this article HERE.

HuffPost Plans Field Trip to Visit America

I guess they want to meet the Christians who cling to their guns/religion.

by Joel B. Pollak

The liberal HuffPost website has announced a 23-city bus tour to find out what it means to be American today.

The tour, named “Listen to America,” seems to admit that the site has little idea what is going on beyond the liberal coastal elites. It also suggests that HuffPost operates to some degree as a political organization: the trip mirrors the listening tours that some Democratic leaders and potential candidates have undertaken since the 2016 election.

The site, which attached a disclaimer attacking then-candidate Donald Trump to every story about him during the 2016 race, suffered a rude awakening on Election Day. The trip aims to address the site’s knowledge gap about the country between the coasts, as well as to repair its image as the sounding board for the wealthy liberal gentry. Read more here.

UNREAL – Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell Uses Misspelled ‘MEDICAD’ Sign on Senate Floor

c

Unfortunately, this IS real!

by Katherine Rodriguez

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) spoke on the Senate floor Tuesday night about the need to expand Medicaid, without realizing that the sign next to her misspelled the word “Medicaid.”

A sign that read “War on MEDICAD” was on display for nearly two minutes while she criticized Republicans for stunting the growth of the government-run healthcare program.

Cantwell did not even flinch when the sign first appeared on the stand.

“[The GOP health plan] is a war on Medicaid,” she said. “In my opinion, there are cost-effective ways for us to continue access to health care.”

“I would hope that my colleagues would stop the focus on decapitation of cutting medicare because it would throw so many people off the system,” she continued. “These are the problems I still see with this proposal to basically think that junk insurance will be the way for us to get insurance.” Read more at breitbart.com.

Breitbart Exclusive – Sen. Rand Paul: Senate GOP Decides to Keep Obamacare

J. Scott Applewhite/AP

By Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY)

I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!”

What happened?

Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout.

Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars.

Insurance company bailouts? Those, too. Remember when Republicans complained about Obamacare’s risk corridors? Remember when we called the corridors nothing more than insurance company bailouts? I remember when one prominent GOP candidate during a presidential debate explicitly called out the Obamacare risk corridors as a bailout to insurance companies. Does anyone else?

Now, the Senate GOP plan being put forward is chock full of insurance bailout money – to the tune of nearly $200 billion. Republicans, present company excluded, now support the idea of lowering your insurance premium by giving a subsidy to the insurance company.

Remarkable. If the GOP now supports an insurance stabilization fund to lower insurance prices, maybe they now support a New Car stabilization fund to lower the price of cars. Or maybe the GOP would support an iPhone stabilization fund to lower the price of phones.

The possibilities are limitless once you accept that the federal government should subsidize prices. I remember when Republicans favored the free choice of the marketplace.

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. I want to repeat that so everyone realizes why I’ll vote “no” as it stands now:

The Senate Obamacare bill does not repeal Obamacare. Not even close.

In fact, the Senate GOP bill codifies and likely expands many aspects of Obamacare. Read more at breitbart.com.

Teen’s Good Deed for Officer Turns Into Suspension at Work

Great Americn Cookies, h/t: Breitbart

– A teen worker who wanted to do something nice for a police officer ended up punished instead.  The story has absolutely exploded on social media.

18-year-old Zack Randolph was working Sunday at Great American Cookies at Katy Mills Mall.  A police officer placed an order and the teen said he would like to pay for the officer’s dessert.  How is that a problem?  Well, the person in line behind the officer apparently didn’t like it, and the teen ended up suspended, but the story doesn’t end there.

“He was told you know you’re probably going to get fired,” says the 18-year-old’s mom Tami Randolph.  Fired?  For what? The teenager says the police officer also works in the mall and he just wanted to be kind and buy the officer the cheesecake brownie he ordered to show his appreciation for protecting and serving our community.

“He’s just a really nice guy and on top of that he has a badge. That’s enough for me to buy him something. That’s the least I can do,” explains Zack Randolph. The teen paid the $2.75 for the brownie with his own money. “Yes ma’am. I didn’t even use the employee discount, full price,” says Randolph. Read more at fox26houston.com.

Kellyanne Conway Takes Down “Fake News” Chris Cuomo on CNN

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway went head-to-head with Chris Cuomo in a fiery thirty five minute shootout on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday (Note to those politically correct snowflakes lacking a sense of humor or a sense of irony: the words fiery and shootout are used metaphorically) .

At one point in the exchange Conway asked Cuomo: “Aren’t you the least bit reluctant, if not embarrassed that you now talk about Russia more than you talk about America? Doesn’t this bother you?”

In the video clip below Fox News host Tucker Carlson played a montage of excerpts from this interview on his show.

 

Watch the the entire interview below (if you can handle it).

A Perfect Video for Independence Day

Radio host Mark Levin, author of “Rediscovering Americanism,” criticized the progressive movement for “rejecting” the principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence. Ahead of Independence Day, the New York Times ran a full-page feature on the Constitution. Levin said the feature was just another example of the progressive left misunderstanding American history and the principles of this country. He noted Constitution Day is September 17, and that July 4 instead honors the Declaration of Independence. “The entire progressive movement rejects the Declaration of Independence,” Levin, a former DOJ chief of staff, said. “That’s why you’ll never see a full page of the Declaration of Independence in the New York Times,” he said.

He said that progressives believe that rights come from the government, while the Declaration describes how they are inalienable grants to humanity from God. Levin said those who fought and died in the Revolution would be “appalled” by progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who believe in a central government redistributing wealth. “[They] can’t have health care unless the government controls it and redistributes it,” he said. Levin also discussed the media’s fixation with President Trump’s feud with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, remarking that “sonograms” have better ratings than MSNBC. Hat tip: Tea Partiest.

Mark Levin to the Media: Want Trump to Act Presidential? Then Have Respect for the Office of the President

By Jeff Poor

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative talk show host Mark Levin, author of the book “Rediscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Progressivism,” reacted to the controversy created by two tweets from President Donald Trump attacking MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and its co-host Mika Brzezinski.
