Obamacare has been designed to redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent. We should have expected this since the legislation was written by executives of publicly traded health care corporations whose stocks and bonds are bought and sold in the financial markets.
Take the case of a family of four in which the policyholder is fifty years old. We’ll call this family the Smiths. Say Mr. Smith is a college graduate. So is Mrs. Smith. Let’s assume they earn $93,699 a year in 2014, when all parts of Obamacare becomes the law. After taxes, that’s not a whole lot of money. The Smith’s might be in the lower middle class, maybe solidly middle.
The government is going to force them to purchase a health insurance policy whether they want to or not, or they’ll be penalized and compelled to pay a tax on something they don’t want to buy, which is ridiculous and clearly unconstitutional, as the insurance industries corrupt Chief Justice John Roberts of the US Supreme Court clearly knows. The Smiths, however, decide to purchase the policy to avoid the hassle.
The cost of that policy will be $16,858 a year, but the government will subsidize the family and the health insurance industry by paying $8,901 of that policy.
The Smiths, however, have neighbors, the Thompsons. Mr and Mrs Thompson have no insurance coverage and they too will be forced by an unconstitutional law to purchase a health insurance policy from a publicly traded, limited liability, corporation. The Thompsons earn $93,700 a year, which is one dollar more than what the Jones earn. Their insurance policy also costs $16,858 a year, but because they earn one dollar more, they’ll need to pay the entire premium under Obamacare.
This will suck the Thompson’s dry, but it will also push health insurance company profits higher, and send their share prices and dividends for the 1 percent surging. The rich will get richer, but what will it do for the Thompsons? After they pay their taxes, the Thompson’s aren’t going to have a ton of money to spend after the insurance industry (and the 1 percent) financially rapes them via Obamacare. The economy might even contract because of the Obamacare income redistribution scam since 70 percent of the economy is consumer driven and the consumers are going to get financially raped big time. The rich, however, will get richer by sucking the middle class dry with another piece of legislation. That’s precisely why Wall Street Senator Ron Wyden voted for the bill. He’s always looking for ways to redistribute income from the 99 to the 1 percent.

By the way, this new law may encourage employers everywhere to opt out of providing their employees with health insurance. Target and Walmart have already cut employee hours to opt out of the law.

Are you listening President Obama? Of course not. The banksters have you in their hip pocket. That’s why not a single attempt to prosecute the destroyers of the economy has occurred. Iceland engineered an economic recovery by doing the opposite of what the Obama administration has done. The government bailed out the people and jailed the banksters.
How much is the US government rotted by big money? You know. That’s all the money the 1 percent have received via tax cuts and legislation that redistributes income from the 99 to the 1 percent, such as free trade income redistribution treaties that continue to destroy the middle class and US economy? People were prosecuted for the Savings and Loan scandal that cost the taxpayers $124 billion, but nobody on Wall Street was prosecuted at all for the most recent and much larger financial crisis. They’ve been bailed out. Hows that for justice?
These people are not prosecutable because of the tax cuts for the rich that have been used to rot the guts out of the US government and the corporate wing of the US Supreme Court, which includes Chief Justice John Roberts, and the Koch Brothers drones Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Antonin Scalia. All of these members are on the payroll of the Koch Brothers in one way or the other. It’s a rigged game.
Eliminating the Bush tax cuts would be a step in the right direction, but hardly enough steps to solve the corruption in the courts and the government.

A new report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) finds that President Barack Obama’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s failure to criminally charge any top Wall Street bankers is likely a result of cronyism inside the Department of Justice and political donations made to Obama’s campaign. What the report didn’t say is that the George W. Bush administration and his justice department failed to do anything either, and for the exact same reasons.
Our government at all levels has been almost completely corrupted by big money, and that includes both political parties, as well as the corrupt, corporate wing of the US Supreme Court, which includes Chief Justice John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence “the Dimwit” Thomas, Samuel Alito and Anthony Kennedy.

Apparently, the Federal government can make you buy stuff if you don’t buy it. For the first time in US history, the federal government can make you buy something you don’t want to, thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts. Anybody who believes the government is too big and powerful now have even more to worry about.
Roberts may have voted yes to the “mandate’” provision of the law, because corporate insurance companies will enhance their profits with the law more so than without the law. He tends to vote for whatever redistributes the most money from the 99 to the 1 percent, and his stance on this issue may have everything to do with corporate profits than the constitution, which is typical of the corrupt Koch Brothers/corporate wing of the court.
“If an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes,” Roberts writes. He adds that this means “the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance. Rather, it makes going without insurance just another thing the government taxes, like buying gasoline or earning an income.”
In other words, Roberts thinks the government can tax you for not buying something. Where in the Constitution is this provision?

By now it is clear that the Koch Brothers have bought half or more of the US Supreme Court; justices Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Do you remember when Chief Justice Roberts committed perjury under sworn testimony during his confirmation hearings in front of the senate when he claimed he would respect “legal precedence” and then promptly showed what a liar he was when he voted to destroy 100 years of legal precedence on campaign finance with his Koch Brothers inspired decision to vote yes on Citizens United? That’s the influence billions of dollars have on the Koch Brothers wing of the US supreme court.
Now it turns out the Brothers have influence on US energy policy. Click the link below for the complete story.

The Supreme Court is rigged and has been for well over a decade. You know what I’m talking about. How about a chief justice that committed perjury under sworn testimony during his confirmation hearings. Slime Bag John Roberts testified that he would respect “precedence.” And then at the behest of the Koch Brothers, the slime bag voted yes on Citizens United, thereby destroying a hundred years of precedence. The supreme court is obviously corrupt and why the Justice Department is not investigating the slime bags of the court is beyond comprehension.
