HOW TO FIX THE VA IN 350 WORDS OR LESS

An Occam’s Razor Approach, By Stephen Richardson.The VA will never work any better than it does today.  Sadly it’s run by the government and the government will never run any enterprise serving the public successfully.  Wherever government Health Care has been implemented it has been inefficient and budget constrained into rationing care. One need only look at the English system as an example.

The best way to fix Health Care is not to throw more resources and money into a flawed system.

A common sense approach would involve:

!. Provide voucher cards for those veterans that do not have other health insurance or resources and are forced to use the VA.  This would make all veterans eligible for same quality Health Care provided all.

2. Issue voucher cards to Medicaid Patients and allow them to seek Health Care in the open market.

3. At the same time, government funding of the VA should be phased out leading to privatization over a ten year period while allowing them to compete with other hospitals for non-VA patients and vouchered Medicare patients.

3.  Ask not order all Hospitals to accept a % of vouchered patients.

As the VA Hospitals learn to compete with declining subsidies, the pending doctor-hospital shortage will be partially alleviated as the increased competition drives medical prices down.

Of course the above depends on whether Government Leadership can accept reality and halt Obamacare in time to keep our entire healthcare from being morphed into a inefficient VA system trying to treat 300 million People. Right now we are spending 140 Billion a year on a VA system (1) That only treats a small portion of our vets that are forced to rely VA care Most of the 29 million have fortunately better coverage. The Vets forced into the system are being subjected typical government inefficiency and care rationing. No surprise!

{1} The following 2013 article references the 2014 VA budget, indicates that President receives weekly figures covering the patient backlog, and mentions the fact that 600,000? Disabled vets are behind in receiving Checks. How many Vets are on Disability and Why?

WHY WE SUPPORT THE CONVENTION OF STATES PROJECT

Where We Are:

If recent events have not convinced you that Washington is broken and that The Demo-RINO D.C. Beltway coalition is never going to free themselves from their crony – lobby supporters, return to Constitutional Principles, and begin to govern in the interest of the American People, then you are either stupid, senile, or both.

Our Freedom and Constitution Hang by Threads:

President Obama, with help from Harry Reed and no opposition from complicit RINOs has evoked the Nuclear option for D.C. District judge appointments. You can expect the 50 vote option will be extended to legislation filibusters in the near future. The result of these actions could assure passage of Immigration reform before the next 2014 election. With lifetime appointments of ultra-progressive judges on the D. C. Circuit Obama’s Regulations and Executive Orders will be almost impossible to reverse. Here comes  Energy, Gun Control., National Health Care. These radical appointments will assure the Socialist transformation continues beyond Obama’s tenure.

The Beltway RINOs have Forsaken You and Your Neighbors

The inability of Republican Party to provide over-sight and seek redress under the law for what has become one of the most corrupt and lawless regimes in history is unbelievable. Scandals like Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA, IRS ,NSA-PRISM, Voter-Fraud, Immigration non-enforcement are protected by Legislative hearings (often closed door) where evidence is forever with-held, and witnesses are let slide as critical questions are often over-looked.

The RINO Republican leadership adopts the same positions as the regime – assuring only token opposition. Any opposition is frozen in place by fear of the socialist DC- NY Press establishment and throttled by lobbyists for cheap labor, regulation spinners, anti-business, energy cronies, pro social welfare advocacy organizations and too-often,  personal silent acquiescence for socialist evolution. They are further cowed by their fear of a conservative Tea Party rebellion that will alter their power sharing arrangement with their Democratic Beltway Partners.

Only Token RINO opposition has yielded huge “Omnibus” bills like Obamacare and and outright collaboration on the “gang of eight” immigration” bill. RINO refusal to use the power of the purse to stop their economy destroying monsters completely defies the will of the American People.  The RINOS Join with Demos to castigate and undermine conservative opposition from Republicans like Ted Cruz Mike Lee, and Ken Cucinelli, by withdrawing funds, running opposition Republican candidates, or publicly denouncing their efforts.

These acts of political malpractice have resulted thousands of pages of unenforceable regulations and ever increasing spending, with the worst yet to come. The policies to float the debt are debasing our currency. Commodity prices have increased 20%-80% due to shrinking dollar and easy money printing (quantitative Easing). Inevitable bankrupting inflation is on the Horizon. 

RINO-Demo purposeful looting and regulation throttling of the private sector has led to a real unemployment rate of over 13% and the lowest labor participation this century. Cost of living increases for Unearned subsistence for food stamps has increased by thirty percent while earned social security cost-of living benefits have only been increased by 1.5 percent. Advertising and special promotions have made food stamps the Government’s most popular program.

Forty-nine percent of the American people receive some form of public assistance in a drive to rob them of their agency and self-reliance and harness them to fund the beltway pie. Joining Demos in a political appeal to deviant public tastes and appetites ihas contributed the debasing of morality and social values.

D. C. Beltway Coalition practices politics as a game where all vie for a bigger piece of the insider-trading crony funded pie they share.The Progressive RINO and Democratic leadership oversee the spoils and compete for control of the oven. The interests American people are very rarely represented or served and are only viewed or considered as a source funding for the ever enlarging pie. 

It is Time To Act

If you are still reading this you probably are, as we are, sure that we must act to take our country back if we are to keep our freedom, agency, and Constitution. In order to accomplish this purpose the Tea Party must unify many diverse groups, Organize them with common goals and unite in strategic action to implement universal tactics. It is time for a summit to organize for action.

A Winning Tactic

We advocate for unified support, across all major Tea Party groups, for the Constitution of States Project to promote organizing in support of sponsoring State Constitution Amendment Conventions in all states. A unified multi-group Tea-Party project should concentrate on building an organization down to the district Level to work for selecting and running state Legislative candidates that will support an Article V amendment process in each state. Rallying primary candidates in RINO districts and for coalescing into a third Party movement—If it is ever necessary.

All Our Abilities and available time will be be dedicated to this effort and We Suggest you do the same.

THE TEA PARTY WILL NOT WIN CONSISTENTLY UNTIL….

Last Presidential election an intense rally and get out the vote effort by Freedom Works, Tea Party Patriots, the Christian Coalition and others resulted in at least four million conservative voters staying home that voted in the 2008 election. Most recently, a very good and brave Ken Cuccinelli, who stood up to the crony D. C. Corridor rail lobby, BELTWAY DEMO-RINO RULING CLASS, and shared the philosophy that brought us into politics, was beaten because he could not martial the resources to overcome a cut-off of GOP funding and a Demo Placed “Libertarian” spoiler candidate.

Some have dismissed the inability to generate turn-out in the last 2012 election due to the GOP Candidate choice, RINO Mitt Romney (whom I actually respect but disagree with many of his political solutions), and a very poorly run election strategy.  This may be partly true, but we feel there are other reasons Tea Party efforts failed that have not been discussed. As Cuccinelli’s loss underscores, we will not win consistently until we address all of our flaws that lead to these unfavorable outcomes.

These flaws in organization and strategies must be must be corrected if Patriots have any hope of actually reclaiming their country from the Beltway Demo-RINO Crony lobby establishment. Right now we are not proactive and almost totally reactive and fighting a series of withdrawal skirmishes with only limited success. This blog is meant to be a wake-up rant for any that choose to listen. Continue reading

OBAMACARE FIX WORSE THAN WEBSITE?

The Obamacare “Fix” that most RINO GOP Legislators led By Mitch McConnell are advocating may be worse than the government produced Obamacare Website tragedy foreshadows. There are a number of reasons that indicate that the Obama, as he told the SEIU union in 2008, intended to speed the demise of healthcare and create conditions that would morph the failed system into a single-payer government system within ten to fifteen years.  It turns out that it probably won’t take that long because Obama thought he might have opposition. In actuality the Corrupt Beltway GOP RINOS are more interested in feathering their nests (as most Demos are) by harvesting the lobbyist and insider trading benefits of government change. Expert at political theater they are the tip of Obama’s spear. Continue reading

SHUTDOWN BOOGEYMAN

What Would A Government  Shutdown Do?

Progressive Statist Republicans and Democrats have greatly overstated the effects of a Government shutdown. Statists such as President Obama, supported by a slavish press and complicit statist Republicans, have created inflamed a myth of catastrophe to throw fear into the hearts of the uninformed. If just not funding the Government could get rid of it, believe me, it would have been tried in 2010. It has built-in perpetuation mechanisms that lack of funding can’t effect. Currently the Government collects 260 B., yes that is Billions of dollars a month, which is more than enough to pay its debit interest and fund its entitlement obligations. (1)

UNFUND OBAMACARE?

In a visit today the Florida Studio of E.I.B. network Mike lee and Rush Limbaugh made a very cogent case for joining the effort to Defund Obamacare on the continuing Resolution..

As Senator Lee says, you have Democrats and some old lion power broker Republicans vocally against  the House exercising the power of the purse and funding everything but Obamacare on the up comming continuing resolution face off because it is DC against the rest of us. The issue of unfundig draws the same battle lines that led to the rise of the TeaParty abd the landside to elect aGOP House Majority to repeal obamacare.

The original law has been modified 4 times twice by the supreme court to bend it to fit the constitution and twice illegally and unconstitutionally by Obama. Additionally the law is proving difficult to implement, requires a monumental dose of extra funding to enroll participants.

Elbert Guillory-Free At Last….Free at last

If The Republican leadership really felt and articulated the ideals espoused by this great American, the Republican party would never lose another election. This wise leader is moving away from big government and The Democratic party of Obama, Schumer, Reed, and Pelosi as fast as his legs will carry him. Boehner, Rove, Haley Barbour and the rest of the leadership are running toward big government and accommodating Obama’s Agenda as fast as they can. Why?

An Open Letter to Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader

An Open Letter to Representative Eric Cantor, House Majority Leader:

My friend, I am 75 years old and won’t bear the cost of of allowing our uninvited guests to stay..but you an your children will. 

The fact that illegals will pay taxes and this will cover the cost is a myth. Most illegals don’t make enough money to pay taxes….remember the bottom 50% of all US earning households pay no taxes. 

In a landmark report, the Heritage Foundation has rationally looked at the cost-benefit aspects of  Immigration Reform now before congress in its Special Report 131, “The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer” By By Robert Rector and Jason Richwine, Ph.D.

According to their report, linked here more than 80 means-tested welfare benefits (such as food stamps, public housing, and Medicaid) will cost a grand total of $900 million per annum. Clearly the cost of these programs will increase, along with the fact that the federal government will be expected to pay for Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment insurance for all those who are given amnesty. As Heritage eloquently states, a plan to naturalize illegal immigrants probably cost as much as $6.3 trillion, and as About.com-U.S. Government information states, the wealthy will be expected to pay most of it since an overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants are poor.

A reading of both of the linked reports will make it clear that the so called “uninformed voters” alarmingly reside in our own elected legislatures. To even consider taking on an additional 6.3 trillion in unfunded liabilities on top of Obama Care Costs and implimentation problems will certainly destroy our economy. Only idiots, uniformed illiterates, or purposeful sabatouers would even consider voting for such insanity.

Which are you representative Cantor, idiot, uninformed illiterate, or puposeful sabatouer?


An Open letter to John Boehner

Open Letter To Speaker John Boehner:

Just a note to let you know that millions of Americans are aware of the following facts:

1. We went over the fiscal cliff long ago — There is no pending fiscal cliff– only rate of free fall.

2. There is no pending tax increase for all Americans. The Bush Tax rates are going to expire and the with holding for the 50% of Americans that pay taxes will increase to the rate they were paying during the Clinton Administration. The uniformed untaxed 47% will not be effected in any way.

3. Your proposal along with the President’s will directly increase the deficit, degrade the currency, and help assure and hasten the destruction of the economy.

4. Neither party has made a proposal to cut real spending since baseline budgeting was instituted in 1972. No one has ever proposed anything resembling a real cut in spending.

5. We are fully aware that the Republican Leadership is allied with Lobbyists, Democrats, and the President in a phoney sham crisis to continue spending at a rate that will destroy the currency and result in the collapse of the economy.

You, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy are corrupt and should be ashamed of yourselves. We can only hope that if you are not punished in this life, you all will pay for your sins in some future life. You need to Man-up,  grow a pair,  and start telling Americans the truth.

The truth is that we are already Greece. The President wants to institute radical post constitutional change that will allow him  to run a statist – marxist- socialist economy with the administrative czars he already has in place after he finishes assuring the total collapse of the economy. The Republican leadership is trying to borrow enough to delay cuts to welfare and food stamp programs to help keep the “Rabble” and Unions out of streets.
