Rep. Jim Bridenstine explains how Obamacare is going to screw you and why we must fight it

Rep. Jim Bridenstine was on with Mark Levin tonight and I tell you, he is sharp as a tack. Bridenstine spends a few minutes explaining how, in very simple terms, we are going to be screwed by Obamacare (and Obama) and why it is necessary that we defund Obamacare while we run the House.



I’d call this one a MUST LISTEN:

Unfortunately he has a few facts wrong, but his premise is right.

You can certainly buy a $1000 opx (he probably meant a $1000 deductible with no copays, etc) and you aren’t able to add and drop your policy outside of open enrollment without a qualifying event.

Why the hell aren’t the conservatives screaming about how democrats are CREATING poverty, are pushing granny off a cliff, are anti-women (destroying the 2nd amendment) , racist (affirmative action and special tax credits for illegal aliens), LAWLESS (allowing illegal criminals out of jail??!) ? Every ridiculous hyperbole coming from the Left is actually true of their own policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congressman Bridenstine gets it. We should all hope he is not sidelined and marginalized by the Big Government Republican party.

Yes, Bridenstine is rigorously analytical, logical and articulate which may mean he is ignored by the GOPe in DC. However another great voice along with Cruz and some of the others.

ObumaNOcare is the ultimate rabbit hole the new deluded majority are unwittingly pushing all of U.S. down. None of this would be possible without the corrupt MSM/Press, dumbed down education, Judiciary, and D and R establishment complicity.

We all must contact our reps in DC and tell them we want them to defund Obamacare now! The next “crisis” is the kicked down the road debt ceiling fight. Tell them to shut it down. We will then see what we REALLY need. This will be the perfect time to defund and dissolve Obamacare!!!

ALL Rs need to opt for the penalty payment for Obamacare as it will cause the program to crash and burn immediately.

Republicans have the means but do they have the will? Governor Christie and Governor Scott and others have shown they do not. They elevate their perceived political interests above the Nation’s interests. This is a defining issue. Some conservatives and Republicans still defend Christie and their argument is usually “he is popular,” “he connects with people,” and the like. It is time to put first principles first. Until Republicans actually do what they say when they campaign as conservatives, they will always be doomed to defeat.

Here in lies the problem. If these govs don’t take it, all the costs will fall to the people of the state. If you live in NJ and the federal gov’t will match dollar to dollar what the people of your state pay, how can they not take it? When Roberts said Obamacare was constitutional it was all over for the don’t take it argument. It is what it is.

Frankly, I am no more persuaded by “good” motives for him than I am for liberals who claim to want to help the less fortunate. Every bit of freedom you cede to the government means more power and control over the individual. It is a false choice to say that the governor must accept ACA or have nothing. In my opinion, any true conservative would FIGHT the implementation of ACA at every step. We in Texas are doing that, thankfully.

We need so many more voices like Rep. Jim Bridenstine. He not only understands the issues, but he can clearly articulate them to the public. I just miss Allen West in Congress. I hope he runs again, because the only thing that will save the Republican party are more voices like Bridenstine’s and West’s, NOT fewer.

When the IRS mates up with HHS the ultimate destination is means testing for fed govt health care dollars. Remember govt operates on slippery slope, pass what you can today and grow it tomorrow. “Hi Suzyqpie, says HHS bureaucrat, I have your IRS docs here with me, I see you have $73,123 dollars. You can pay for your knee replacement yourself, (big rubber stamp) DENIED!” Next in line….
No better way to wipe out the wealth of America. 0bama hates the private wealth of America. His ubiquitous vilification of millionaires & billionaires includes anyone who doesn’t depend on government.

“Hi Suzyqpie, I see that you have only paid $10,000 in federal income taxes over the last 5 years. Given your projected federal income tax liability for the next 10 years, the estimated duration of that knee replacement, we do not feel there is sufficient benefit to the American people to utilize the limited supply of medical financing for you. Your physician has called in your prescription for pain pills. This decision is not subject to appeal or contest in a court of law.”

Sorry, just had to to provide another option.

Physician, you’re joking, right? “Suzyqpie the Proscription Technician Scribe (2 yr tech school GED) will email India and your meds will arrive on USPS within the next 60 days. You can pay COD.” Next……
The physicians will all be clerks, filling out govt paperwork, hoping to avoid the tripwire debris field of 0bamaCareRobertsTax. Great now I’m angry again.

The supreme court ruled it a tax. Accordingly, it should be called obamatax rather than obamacare.

Here’s a big reason why Gov. Christie took the plan in NJ. NJ has the 2nd highest rate of autism. 1 in 49 boys on the spectrum. You can poo poo this all you want, but come to the autism schools in NJ and see how many need 24/7 care. The epidemic of autism began with those born in 1992. These people will be turning 21 this year and that means they will be out of the system for school. These people who have been in a scheduled environment since the age of 3, all of a sudden will have nothing. This in turn, will mean many hours of not properly supervised people, hence injuries, damage and maybe death. NJ was not a state that had federal matching funds for its disabled people, with Christie signing on to this, for every dollar the state spends, the federal gov’t will match… Read more »

Medicare Advantage will be destroyed. Most will go to Medicaid or Medicare with supplemental plans bought from AARP, big Obama Regime followers. The Communists pulling Obama’s strings want to completely destroy private insurance. The only company they believe in is gov. co. We must fundamentally transform America and that leads to Communism.

My Medicare Advantage Plan raised the deductibles and all co-pay, as well as dropped some services. I had to drop out of it.
No one in my county takes Medicare. What this President, Supreme Court, and Congress have done to us is vile.

Rep. Bridenstien needs to partner up with others in the Senate, like Ted Cruz, to find ways to strave this health care beast! Boehner and Cantor are hopeless and spinless! They only care about passing the violence against women act which really includes women, men, LGST, Indians,illegals……. and anyone else. They are not up to the job to fight this.

I really appreciate Rep. Bridenstine bringing this up and passing this letter around to defund this obamanation. I don’t know that any of the establishment will pay any attention to him though as they seem not to like freshmen who have common sense and real conservative ideas. Lord I do hope enough pay attention because this is going to be detrimental to a whole lot of people.

Yes they control the purse strings but will they really defund it? The pre-existing condition $$$ are already gone and the allocation was supposed to last through end of 2014 (past those elections). Ooooops, that will have to have funding replenishment.

Unfortunately, Boehner has been funding it since he became Speaker. Michelle Bachmann and Steve King were very outspoken about this – but nothing changed.

I promise you, when 2014 hits , and it’s time to do our newly revived tax forms..everyone will see what’s wrong with it..It’s way more then care , it’s all about control..they are control freaks and they want to control EVERYTHING. If you are against them you will pay if you are with them you will get a waiver..

You are correct! And it will really hit when the value of the employer paid medical insurance is on the W-2. Let’s see how long that is informational when Obama’s team and the Dem state legislatures calculate the tax revenue if that is considered income.

Mark and Rep Bridenstine might have just hit on it. Men need to file a class action lawsuit against the feds because they have to pay for something (birth control & abortion) which they will never need. Women who are older have the same argument because they can no longer conceive.
