Obamacare—the Worst Investment in the History of Mankind

How much did it cost to set up

“In testimony on Capitol Hill, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, in response to a direct question: ‘Congresswoman, we have spent about $118 million on the website itself, and about $56 million has been expended on other IT to support the web.’ That adds up to $174 million.”

How much did it cost to set up the Obamacare exchanges?

“The health-insurance exchange…so far has cost at least $360 million, and possibly as much as $600 million.”

How much has been spent promoting Obamacare?

“Section 4002, in fact, creates a fund the administration is using for nothing more than propaganda to expand federal influence and control.  What is frightening is the amount of money appropriated.  In 2010 it is $500 million, in 2011, $750 million; in 2012, $1 billion; in 2013, $1.25 billion; in 2014, $1.5 billion; and for 2015 and thereafter, $2 billion!”

“The total amount to be spent nationally on publicity, marketing and advertising will be at least $684 million, according to data compiled The Associated Press from federal and state sources.”

My conclusion: Obamacare is the worst investment in the history of mankind.

13--Perspectives 2


Steve Apfel: Anti-Zionism: the “big” ideology— Zionism = apartheid = racism. The once reviled and then revoked UN resolution was archived and mothballed when some quick-witted people nicked the concept, hid the birth certificate, gave it a pseudo-humanitarian suit of clothes, then held aloft a rollicking rallying cry. Israel the apartheid practitioner! Did it work? Did it just! Apartheid experts and legal minds, try as they might, were like straws in the wind. Richard Goldstone fired every argument in the armory to prove that apartheid was a libel. Did it make a jot of difference? If anything, picketers wielded their banners more flamboyantly.

Richard Baehr: Divide and conquer: Obama’s Israel strategy— In the first two weeks of October, the American news media focused on one major story — the government shutdown, and the threat of a default by the U.S. government if the debt ceiling was not raised by Congress. When a continuing resolution was finally passed in mid-October that funded the federal government for a few more months and lifted the debt ceiling for a slightly longer period, attention shifted rapidly to the colossal failure of the government website,, designed to handle applications for health insurance for the new Obamacare program. The site had failed since it went online on Oct. 1, but that story was overwhelmed by the coverage of the government shutdown and debt-ceiling battle between the two parties. Foreign policy stories, such as the status of the new American and European talks with Iran over its nuclear program, hardly surfaced.

Wall Street Journal: Ayatollah Khamenei: “Nobody Should Consider Our Negotiators as Compromise-Seekers”—Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned Sunday against undermining negotiators engaged in talks with the West. Diplomats “are on a difficult mission and nobody should weaken those who are on assignment,” he said. “Nobody should consider our negotiators as compromise-seekers,” he added. Khamenei reiterated that he isn’t optimistic about nuclear talks, but they won’t damage Iran. He also praised Iranian militant students who stormed the U.S. Embassy in 1979.

Jennifer Rubin: No Deal by U.S. Jewish Leadership on Iran Sanctions Freeze—A story in Ha’aretz that suggested that Jewish groups brought to the White House for a meeting had agreed to hold off lobbying for additional sanctions against Iran may have backfired on the Iran-friendly crowd. The story was categorically denied on the record by American Jewish Committee President David Harris. Democratic senators prominent in the pro-Israel community are firmly in favor of keeping Iran’s feet to the fire.

Sen. Marco Rubio: Pressure Iran with Tighter Sanctions—While the administration has been quick to hail the latest round of talks with Iran as breaking new ground, the tortuous decade-long history of U.S. and European diplomatic engagement with the country is littered with Iranian feints and the promise of concessions that never occur. (In fall 2009 talks in Geneva, Iran actually agreed in principle to take steps to transfer most of its stockpile of enriched uranium out of the country.) The last time we were told to be cautiously optimistic, Iran barely had one weapon’s worth of enriched uranium. Now it has a stockpile of uranium that is the equivalent of several weapons worth, according to the Institute for Science and International Security. For the past 10 years, world powers have been talking to Iran. Meanwhile, Iran has been creating facts on the ground by building the elements of a nuclear weapons program and the long-range missiles needed to deliver a nuclear warhead.

Eli Hazan: The Jews of North Africa— For most Israelis, the words “Holocaust,” “concentration camp” and “extermination” refer solely to what happened to the Jews of Europe. This was the general perspective among academics too, until recently. A shift began a few years ago, although only time will tell whether this will become fundamental and slowly integrate new stories into the existing canon of Holocaust literature.

Karl Vick: U.S. Intelligence Leaks a Growing Concern for Israel—Israel’s determination to strike discreetly in Syria was undone by leaks, the most credible of which, on CNN, was attributed to U.S. officials. That report infuriated the Israeli security establishment. “What on earth are the Americans thinking when they finger Israel as responsible for the strikes in Syria?” Alex Fishmen asked in aYediot Ahronot commentary. “Past experience suggests that we shared information with them on our operational activity so as to prevent embarrassment and surprise, but Washington is selling our secrets on the cheap.”

Dr. Reuven Berko: Rejoicing in others’ misfortune— The release of Arab murderers and the women’s cries of joy in the Palestinian Authority, while in Israel the families of terror victims wallowed in pain, bring to mind King David’s famous lament over Saul’s and Jonathan’s defeat and deaths in battle: “Lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph” (2 Samuel 1:20). But “daughters of the Philistines” is a misnomer. There is no relation between the ancient Philistines and the collection of nomadic Arab families, invading Bedouin tribes and peripatetic Muslim groups who gathered in the land of Israel in recent times and are now misleadingly known as “Palestinians.”

Michael Doyle: Does Supreme Court case have a prayer? Stay Tuned— Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida wants the Senate to keep praying before lawmakers get down to business. Texas legislators, too, want their daily prayers. And in an unexpected pew-sharing, the Obama administration has joined conservative state and federal lawmakers in urging the Supreme Court to tolerate prayers during government meetings.

Ed Morrissey: ABC: WH not telling truth about alternate ObamaCare application methods, either—  Just consider this another example of Barack Obama misspeaking.  In the middle of last month’s rollout, Obama insisted that Americans had other ways of signing up for the totally awesome product in his Rose Garden pep rally.  Americans soon discovered otherwise, though, as operators standing by actually couldn’t enroll them in plans, which consumers couldn’t browse and had no way of calculating their subsidies without the website. ABC News reports today that the White House knew that well before Barack Obama’s Rose Garden speech…

4--Scripture of the Day USE THIS ONE

The scripture below is from the New American Standard Bible, and the hyperlinks associated with each word are from Strong’s Concordance for the New American Standard Bible.

Obadiah 1: 5-9

“If thieves came to you, if robbers by night– O how you will be ruined!– would they not steal [only] until they had enough? If grape gatherers came to you, would they not leave [some] gleanings? O how Esau will be ransacked, [and] his hidden treasures searched out! All the men allied with you will send you forth to the border, and the men at peace with you will deceive you and overpower you. [They who eat] your bread will set an ambush for you. (There is no understanding in him.) Will I not on that day,” declares Yahweh, “destroy wise men from Edom and understanding from the mountain of Esau? Then your mighty men will be dismayed, O Teman, so that everyone may be cut off from the mountain of Esau by slaughter.”

  • “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 16: 21)
  • “Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His name by which He will be called, ‘Yahweh our righteousness.’” (Jeremiah 23: 5-6)
  • Yeshua said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8: 58)

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
