I'm preparing for national financial chaos in coming years
The coming financial Armageddon will make 2008 financial collapse look like a Sunday school picnic. Have enough cash on hand to pay all your basic necessities, food, clothing, utilities, for 6 months. When the governmment confiscates your savings (for the good of all), closes the banks with no prior notice, shuts down the ATM's coincedent with the bank closures, you will be ready and not have to panic.
Just because something has never happened doesn't mean it will never happen.
ObamaCare takes friendly fire
By Sam Baker - 04/06/13 12:17 PM ET
Delays in implementing popular pieces of ObamaCare are hurting it with Democrats.
Ahead of an election year in which Republicans promise to make healthcare an issue again, Democrats are criticizing the White House for delaying policies that could help build support for the unpopular law.
Democrats complained this week about a one-year delay in a key program designed to help small businesses — a central selling point for the healthcare law that now won’t be in place when voters head to the polls next year.
“Senate Republicans will have the opportunity to campaign against Obamacare's rising health care costs, burdensome paperwork and broken promises and could use it to motivate voters against Democrat candidates, especially vulnerable ones in red states,” Republican strategist Ron Bonjean said.
HHS has delayed by one year a provision that would have allowed small businesses in most states to choose from multiple policies for their workers. Although a handful of states will see increased competition next year, most will have just one plan to choose from until 2015.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) told The New York Times the delay will “prolong and exacerbate health care costs that are crippling 29 million small businesses.”
Democrats are also complaining more openly about other implementation delays. And the substance of the law itself isn’t immune from bipartisan criticism — 33 Senate Democrats cast a non-binding vote last month to repeal the law’s tax on medical devices, saying it’s a threat to innovation that could raise costs for consumers.
