Time Editor Blames Romney for Media’s Failure to Scrutinize ObamaCare

Laura Ingraham pressed Time’s Mark Halperin to explain why he and his colleagues refused to scrutinize ObamaCare for three years or take Republican warnings (all of which are proving true) seriously. To his credit, Halperin didn’t dodge the fact that  the media failed to do its job. He did, though, rather bizarrely blame Mitt Romney and Republicans for it.

This goes way beyond, HYPOCRITE and not just Plastic Nancy..

1 in 5 of latest ObamaCare waivers went to Nancy Pelosi’s district?

They sure as hell did.

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.

That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.

Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi’s district’s waivers are the first major examples of luxurious, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

Yes, I know that the system is broke, but didn’t someone allude to “Death Panels”? Wouldn’t “subpar”, kinda’, maybe, sorta’ LEAD to DEATH?

Federal judge to seniors: take Medicare or lose Social Security theblogprof  via Instapundit

This week marks the first anniversary of ObamaCare, and if you are wondering where that coercive law is headed, we’d point to a case in federal court. That’s where Judge Rosemary Collyer has ruled that Americans have a legal obligation to accept subpar government health benefits.

It remains a remarkable fact that America obliges most citizens over the age of 65 to take that rickety government health plan known as Medicare. Judging by today’s growing number of health-savings options (HSAs, medical FSAs), some Americans would prefer to maintain private coverage upon retirement, rather than be compelled into second-rate Medicare.

Social security is not a right as the ruling class keeps telling us, it is a privilege to be doled only to those that tow the big government line and will behave the way the ruling class wants them to behave:

[T]he idea of patient choice offends many in government, and in 1993 the Clinton Administration promulgated so-called POMS (Program Operations Manual System) rules that sayseniors who withdraw from Medicare Part A (which covers hospital and outpatient services) must forfeit their Social Security benefits

Choices here, between Obamacare and “subpar” Medicare. Which of these (or all) would you indicate is correct:

Dilemma: a choice between two or more options, none of which are attractive.

False dilemma: only two choices are considered, when in fact there are others.

Catch-22: a logical paradox arising from a situation in which an individual needs something that can only be acquired by not being in that very situation.

Morton’s fork, and a double bind: choices yield equivalent, often undesirable, results.

Blackmail and extortion: the choice between paying money (or some non-monetary good or deed) and suffering an unpleasant action.
