- 1. Gruber and the Individual and Employer Mandates
One average American citizen, Rich Weinstein, made a startling discovery. True investigative reporting is dead among the mainstream media. So, without a college journalism degree, he did it himself. He quickly found Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare. In Jonathan Gruber, he discovered how the Obama Administration deceived the American public.
Since then, the conservative media is uncovering more and more evidence by the trainload. The "mainstream" media continues to ignore Grubergate. "Not since the Kermit Gosnell late term abortion murder trial has the mainstream press labored so diligently to ignore a hot story." (Have you cancelled your newspaper subscription yet?)
In this article published by Daily Caller by Patrick Howley, we learn that during the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton's "mandate." He ran an ad that stated: ”Hillary Clinton’s attacking, but what’s she not telling you about her health care plan? It forces everyone to buy insurance, even if you can’t afford it, and you pay a penalty if you don’t.”
In his usual bait and switch style, Obama was later "convinced" by Gruber to do exactly that.Click here to read more
- 2. Mainstream Media FAIL: Citizen Journalist Exposes Administration's Deception over ObamaCare
Meet investment advisor Rich Weinstein, one of many Americans who got a letter informing him that his old health insurance policy did not meet ACA standards. It was replaced by a plan that cost twice as much. Obama's words echoed in his memory: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, period."
"So I’m watching the news, and at that time I was thinking: 'Hey, the administration was not telling people the truth, and the media was doing nothing!'"
That's when Rich Weinstein put on his thinking cap and did his own independent research. He came up with many pieces of evidence proving that the Obama Administration intentionally deceived the American people, beginning with this:
"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” said Gruber. “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. Call it the stupidity of the America voter, or whatever.”

Are you still poisoning your brain by watching the mainstream nightly news? Have you cancelled your local newspaper yet? Did you know there are many other alternatives?

- 3. Is Barack Obama the "Abortion President"? Look at his Record
Recently, at the May 1, 2014, National Day of Prayer breakfast, Dr. James Dobson spoke, calling President Barack Obama "the abortion president."
Just days before, U. S. District Judge Robert Blackburn had issued an injunction preventing the federal government from imposing the abortifacient mandate or its penalties against Dobson and his radio ministry, Family Talk.
Stated Dr. Dobson, "He has made it so that every American will have to pay toward the support of abortion," noting the $250 million in taxpayer funds that already goes toward Planned Parenthood's funding.
“The mandate requiring that we provide abortifacients such as the morning after pill would have begun on May 1st. After that, if we hadn’t prevailed, fines amounting to $800,000 per year would have kicked in,” he said.
“We would have closed our doors.”

- 4. Thursday, April 3: Ralph Heap Fundraiser
Please don't miss this special fundraiser on behalf of Dr. Ralph Heap's candidacy for Arizona Senate in Legislative District 25. He is running against incumbent Bob Worsley.
"Remember, Obamacare is not about health insurance for the poor. It is about control of one-sixth of our economy," states Dr. Heap.
“I believe in the promise of America,and I will work hard to fulfill that promise. This is the greatest nation on earth, and its greatness lies in the brilliance of the Constitution. Everything good about America stems from the liberties protected by this majestic document.
"We stand at a crossroads. One of the biggest problems we face today is the takeover by the federal government of our healthcare system. Unless many of us in the medical profession stand up to these bureaucrats, we face a dismal future.
"From the youngest to the oldest, from the healthiest to the sickest, no one will be untouched by this federal power grab. I hope to accomplish many things if I am elected, including fixing our healthcare system, preserving the Constitution, reigning in the EPA, strengthening our schools, supporting our law enforcement officers, lowering taxes, decreasing regulations, and shrinking government. Preserving liberty means less government and more individual freedom. That is my goal.”

- 5. Aborted Babies Incinerated to Heat UK Hospitals
Americans have always treated the remains of human bodies with reverence and respect. Surely, we would never be so callous as to consider the remains of helpless aborted and miscarried infants as "rubbish," would we?
The United Kingdom provides "health care" through its socialized medical system called the National Health Service (NHS). Is this our future post-Obamacare?
See Aborted Babies Incinerated to Health UK Hospitals. A few excerpts:
The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.
Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.
- 6. Andy McKinney Speaks out Against Ann Kirkpatrick and Ron Barber
Andy McKinney, president of the Rim Country Republican Club in Payson, Arizona, was quoted recently in an Arizona Republic article titled Conservative Groups Already Spending vs Kirkpatrick, Barber. This story begins:
"Andy McKinney can’t vote against U.S. Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick or Ron Barber in the next election. He doesn’t live in their districts. But he hopes to do everything he can to defeat them in 2014.
"The Payson conservative activist said the president’s health-care reforms are a debacle, and Democrats who supported the law should lose their offices.
“'The people I talk to are incensed,' said McKinney, president of the Rim Country Republican Club in eastern Arizona. 'Our elected officials must be held accountable for their votes.'”
Ann Kirkpatrick, Democrat, is the current U.S. Representative from Congressional District 1. She has been a strong supporter of Obamacare and abortions. See Project Vote Smart.Click here to read more
- 7. Message to Obama: We are NOT Subjects!
In case you missed it, Laura Hollis has written an excellent article about Obama's imperial administration, focused primarily on Obamacare. Ms. Hollis is an attorney and teaches entrepreneurship and business law at the University of Notre Dame.
The article, titled "We are not SUBJECTS (and other Observations about Obamacare)" recently appeared in Townhall.
"The unveiling of the dictatorial debacle that is Obamacare absolutely flabbergasts me. It is stunning on so many levels, but the most shocking aspect of it for me is watching millions of free Americans stand idly by while this man, his minions in Congress and his cheerleaders in the press systematically dismantle our Constitution, steal our money, and crush our freedoms.
The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors, and we allow it. They charge us thousands of dollars more a year, and we allow it. They make legal products illegal, and we allow it. They cripple our businesses, and we allow it. They announce by fiat that we must ignore our most deeply held beliefs – and we allow it.
Where is your spine, America"?

- 8. John H Cochrane: What to do When ObamaCare Unravels
Thanks to Shirley Dye for submitting this article.
Obama's purpose from the beginning of his presidency has always been to "fundamentally transform America." Part of that transformation is to destroy the free market system of health care in America, and turn it into a single payer, government run system. The failure of Obamacare is supposed to lead to just that. When enough Americans scream about losing their health care coverage, or having to pay providers for their deductibles, they will turn to Big Government to take care of them.
According to John Cochrane, the Republicans had better have a better solution. In his article "What to do When ObamaCare Unravels," he identifies a good start.
"There is an alternative. A much freer market in health care and health insurance can work, can deliver high quality, technically innovative care at much lower cost, and solve the pathologies of the pre-existing system.
"The U.S. health-care market is dysfunctional. Obscure prices and $500 Band-Aids are legendary. The reason is simple: Health care and health insurance are strongly protected from competition. There are explicit barriers to entry, for example the laws in many states that require a "certificate of need" before one can build a new hospital. Regulatory compliance costs, approvals, nonprofit status, restrictions on foreign doctors and nurses, limits on medical residencies, and many more barriers keep prices up and competitors out. Hospitals whose main clients are uncompetitive insurers and the government cannot innovate and provide efficient cash service.
"Only deregulation can unleash competition. And only disruptive competition, where new businesses drive out old ones, will bring efficiency, lower costs and innovation.Click here to read more
- 9. Dr. Ralph Heap to run against Bob Worsley in LD25
Please attend the Thursday, Jan. 9 meeting of the Mountain View TEA Party and meet an excellent conservative candidate who is running against Bob Worsley (LD25) in 2014. Dr. Ralph Heap, an orthopedic surgeon, received his M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1978, and has been practicing for 30 years.
. The meeting takes place at 7 pm in the Mesa Utility Building, 640 N. Mesa Dr.
“ObamaCare will destroy our healthcare system and our economy with it. It is an unmitigated disaster, yet my opponent voted to expand and fully implement ObamaCare here in Arizona, committing the taxpayers to hundreds of millions of dollars in new costs and further surrendering our health care system to the federal government. As a doctor, I know the issues, I know what is at stake, I will be an effective voice at the Legislature, and I will fight passionately for free market reforms and the end of ObamaCare." Dr. Ralph Heap
In just ONE legislative session, Bob Worsley raised taxes, voted for Obama-care (the Medicaid expansion), violated Prop 108 (the Taxpayer Protection act), voted against Pro-Life Amendments, voted for taxpayer funded scholarships for illegals (which is also a violation of the law), and he scored the worst of any Republican Senator from Americans for Prosperity--earning the Hero of Big Government award.
In fact, three Democrats scored higher than Bob Worsley, including the Democrat Minority Leader Chad Campbell!

- 10. Christians Help Christians with Medical Bills, Refuse Obamacare
Are you a Christian who regularly attends church? Then, why are you allowing yourself to be victimized by the Leftists and railroaded into Obamacare? It may be "politically correct" in this country to insult and persecute Christians, but we don't have to pay for the abortions of those who insult us. For over two thousand years, Christians have helped others, no matter what their faith, or lack of it. We have a golden opportunity to practice our faith by helping other Christians.
Many Christians are leaving the insurance market to join healthcare sharing ministries. Members pay for one another’s medical bills. These groups, though not technically insurance, oversee networks where thousands of monthly “gifts” cover members’ eligible medical expenses. When the day comes that you need help, your fellow Christians are there to help you pay for your medical bills.
Your monthly cost will be lower, especially for families. You won't be paying for birth control pills, abortions, abortion-producing drugs, or alcohol or drug-related health issues or accidents.
There are three major health cost sharing programs in the U.S.A., with approximately 180,000 individual members. Study each one carefully. Monthly costs vary, as do benefit maximums and methods to increase them. Pay close attention to their provider networks, to see which program works best for you. All of them are based on Biblical principles.
Christian Health Ministries.
This Christian-led company has been in business for 30 years. In the last 20 years, Christian Health Ministry members have shared more than $1 billion in medical bills. The ministry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Even their most expensive Gold plan is only $150 per month per insured. Families pay $450 per month, no matter how many children are in the family. Click HERE for more information.
Samaritan Ministries International.
In operation for nearly 20 years, Samaritan Ministries International is the largest bill-sharing faith based program with over 82,000 individual members. Click HERE for more information.
Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share.
Based in Melbourne, Florida, this group has a community of over 70,000 members. Since 1993, Medi-Share members have shared more than $800 million in healthcare expenses. Click HERE for more information.
