Oh Look – Senator ‘Fauxcahontas’ Warren Is Lying. Again

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Her Lips Are Moving

If you are of the ideological Left, there is just about nothing you can do that will remove you from DC’s Elite Society and the Media’s good graces.

Bill Clinton credibly accused of rape?  No problem.  Hillary Clinton gives Russia 20% of our nation’s uranium in exchange for contributions to the family money laundering outfit – oops, I mean charitable Foundation?  No problem.  Bill Ayers being an FBI-designated domestic terrorist?  No problem – there’s a tenured college professorship awaiting you.  The examples are just about endless.

Then there are the lies.  Oh so many lies.  And no matter how many times Leftists are caught bald-faced – they get to move on.  And the very next thing they say – is treated as if it possesses the moral authority and inherent credibility of someone who…well, hadn’t just been caught lying their face off.

Bill Clinton lied under oath – which in part led to his having to give up his law license.  Hillary Clinton lied about sniper fire in Bosnia.  And being named after Sir Edmund Hillary.  And repeatedly about her private-bathroom State Department email server.  Barack Obama said we could under his Obamacare keep our doctors and our insurance plans.  A lie parroted by myriad other Democrats.

Keep the Lame (Duck) Cronyism out of Contact Lenses

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Tyranny of the Un-Elected

I may be jinxing myself – but my aging eyes remain pretty good. <Knocks on wood.> So I can, with my untrammeled sight, spot the ridiculous cronyism that abounds all around the ridiculous city that is Washington, D.C.

Including when that cronyism adversely affects the contact lens market. I don’t have to use a product – to like a free, fair and open market for it. A market which DC actually opened up a bit in 2004 – and which cronies are now looking to slam back shut.

And these cronies are looking to do it in a lame duck Congressional session – which is itself a problem. Lame duck sessions – are lame. Legislators who just lost their gigs – should stop legislating. Because We the People just voted to have them stop legislating.

Who are the Contact Cronies? And what are the Contact Cronies looking to have Lame Duck DC do?

The Cronies are a cabal of optometrists and contact lenses manufacturers who want to regain their lens sale monopoly. Which means they want a lame duck law – that undoes the good work Congress did in 2004. More

Our Private Sector Medical System is Suffering Myriad Government Assaults…

Hey Government – The Private Sector Has Already Been Picked Clean

…Republican Chairman Fred Upton should preempt one of them.

Ain’t government medicine great? Of course, it ain’t.

Obamacare…is an unmitigated disaster. Insurance premiums have exploded. On average, 41% in 2014. Another 24% in 2015. Couldn’t find specific, general numbers in 2016 – but they were again double digit increases. And 2017 is looking another 30%+ awful. Deductibles have also increased dramatically. And despite the fact that people are mandated by law to sign up – sign-ups are way short.

Medicare…is an unmitigated disaster. In 2012, the program faced $38.6 TRILLION in future liabilities – for which it does not have the money. In these last four years, do you think that gigantic problem has gotten better – or worse?

This titanic economic shortfall is even more ridiculous – considering it’s getting harder and harder to find any health care providers who will see Medicare patients. For decades, more and more providers have started refusing to see them. Because Medicare doesn’t pay in anywhere near a timely fashion – and it absolutely does not pay anywhere near enough.

Medicare needs to be completely privatized. But this is DC, so that won’t happen. Short of that, it needs drastic, dramatic reform. But this is DC, so…. In the meantime, attempting to squeeze more blood from provider stones is not even close to a solution. At this point, you’ve already wrung-beyond-hope any conceivable savings out of our depleted, diminishing Medicare provider force. More
