Obamacare Marketing Campaign

072413_al_obamacare2_640

The Obama administration is launching a nationwide campaign to advertise for the Affordable Care Act. The campaign will cost roughly 684 million dollars.

The administration is hoping to use this advertising to reach out to people that are unaware of Obamacare. It also seems as if the advertising could possibly be used to hoodwink the American people. Continue reading

Reasons why I’m voting Romney/Ryan: #2 Free market/energy

  1. Free market/energy: Under this administration the free market is slowly losing its freedom. Government had forced Auto-companies to take bailout money and even went as far as to buy out GM. How does GM repay the taxpayers for their bailout dollars? GM ceo recently announced at an auto show in china that GM makes 7 out of every 10 cars in china. More to the point, for those of us American Taxpayers who have bought GM stock for ourselves, we will be forced to go to the end of the line should the gov cash in their GM stock because their stock certificates is a different class and has more privilege than that of GM employee.

Reasons I’m voting Romney/Ryan: #1 Jobs

  1. Jobs:  Staples, Sports Authority, Home Depot, Best Buy and Lockheed/Martin; What is their connection with jobs and this election? Throughout this election the MSNBC and Democrats have painted a picture of Romney being an evil villain who has led his evil corporation “Bain capitol” in a war against jobs.  The fact is Staples and Sports Authority founders have came out in support of Romney because without Bain capitol they would not exist. I am in a similar mind frame I support Romney because I owe my first paid job to Bain; that job was a sales associate at home depot. Home Depot was also helped by Bain and look all three are still standing in this bad economy in spite of the presidents policies. Where does BestBuy and Lockheed/martin fit in? After 3 ears of this recession and this presidents policies both companies have had to lay off employees; Best Buy has even had to close stores.

California Legislature funding Billions into New Rail System; Are they on a Crazy Train or Are they Insane?

ALL ABOARD!!: Five days ago, California’s legislature voted on and approved $8 Billion of their funds to be allocated for the construction of a high speed rail line. Though this has been a controversial form of spending a few government employees support this. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood stated, “I congratulate the Legislature on taking this action, which will create thousands of jobs and strengthen the California economy,” in a recent blog post. Yes it will create jobs, but for how long? What do the workers do once the construction is finished? The vote for approval reflect the controversy surrounding this rail line, with the results being 21-16 and passing only after years of heated debates, setbacks, and lest we forget a lot of debt.

Independence Day Weekend 2 of 2

Who might not celebrate Independence Day?:

People like Chris Rock perhaps? Not sure of what I’m referring to, then read my earlier post. Funny that people like Chris Rock should exercise their free speech in such a manner that neglects those who fight to protect it. Those who fight and arrive home heroes or veterans. What is truly sad is the fact that after their return from duty most Americans go on with their lives forgetting about those veterans until the next parade, award ceremony,  or the occasional veterans day celebration . But the truth is that veterans often suffer emotional injuries from their service which leave them just as scarred as the physical injuries. In 2006, over 400,000 vets were homeless at some point. Now 1 in 4 vets are homeless this is particularly disturbing when factoring in the ACA/Obamacare. Remember with the ACA any American without health insurance will be penalized/taxed, this includes veterans. As most citizens know, veterans are already eligible for Medicare and some gov benefits. We should also remember that these homeless veterans are often homless for mental issues and therefore never apply for said benefits. There is also the possibility that some vets are like the 14 million Americans eligible for medicare and yet do not apply for whatever reason.

My Opinion: We should try our best to help the veterans in need not just the homeless veterans, after all it is because of them that we can celebrate Independence Day and that Chris Rock can have Freedom of Speech. This in mind, we should address the issue of how the ACA will treat citizens in similar situations to that of the homeless vets. Will the ACA penalize/tax them regardless if their mentally ill or for whatever reason just don’t want government insurance. To conclude, I have to say for the ACA to penalize/tax in a manner described above would be morally wrong if not legally wrong.
