OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ADMITS TO FRAUD- Sebelius Tells Committee Dems Double-Counted $500 BILLION DOLLARS in Obamacare


Not only did the Obama Administration add another $100 billion to the cost of Obamacare one month after the bill was rammed through Congress but today the Obama Administration admitted to fraud. The White House and Democrats double-counted $500 billion in Obamacare in order to make it look like the bill was going to save the American taxpayers some cash.

Last year Democrats said they were going to cover 30 million more people (Americans and others) with health insurance and they claimed it was going to save money. We knew they were lying then. This week they admitted they were lying.

Via FOX Nation:

Democrats told America “We’re just giddy” about saving money with Obamacare before they rammed it home.
It was a lie.

    So what now? Mr. Teflon Zero and his administration will be censured or some such thing? This administration is breaking laws daily with no consequences. I’m just glad they got caught. However, is this being carried by the MSM? I would think not – just doesn’t work to well for Mr. Slick’s Zero image and his bid to finish the wreckage of this great nation by being reelected.

    Hey FDR told the people Social Security was a real trust fund, but then told the Supreme Court it was nothing more than a general tax. Today there is no trust fund, never has been. So government lies, what’s new…

    Let’s face it “we the people” weren’t doing our job, we farmed it out to others, while we all pursued our own happiness. So now comes the piper … And we are shocked to find that we are now up against the wall.

    This whole back room deal, under the table HC bill needs to be thrown out by the Supreme Court. The socialist/commie public relations spin was all lies. Sounds like their good at double counting more than votes. The socialist/commie assaults keep coming and coming every day and every week.

  • Corsair

    Tarpon has it right. It is “We the people” that are to blame. We ignored the takeover of our universities and schools in the last few decades, we allowed our children to be indoctrinated, while we spend more time following the news of celebrities and keeping up with sports scores and the newest tech gadget, and now the bill is due.
    We, on the right, are mad, but we should be ashamed for allowing this to happen.

    And I am just as guilty as anyone…….

    When you watch TV, you don’t just watch the show. I used to harp on that at Big Hollywood, but they loves their Preciousssss……, and won’t tolerate any hatin’ on it.

    You watch what’s in the breaks, as well. The constant propaganda that infests the shows themselves, even if you’re watching a True TeaParty-lovin’ type show like Walker: Texas Ranger, you’re also watching, most likely, the breaks. Every commercial, from light-bulb commercials to automobile commercials to soy milk commercials to what’s coming up on the 11:00 news is CHOCK-FULLA-NUTZ. packed with Green and Red propaganda. Remember: the lion’s share of the folks that make commercials, of all these kinds, learned from and were programmed by the Communist-controlled “Arts” cirricula in their schooling. From the videographer to the graphic artist to the writer, they are all working for the same TASS. So every single frame of every single piece of video in a “break” will reflect that.

    You think I’m paranoid? Challenge: spend 5 years with no TV. Then watch it for a few hours. You’ll crap yourself, knowing that I was right.

    Apropos of this thread and the preceding 20 or so….

    What I transcribed watching Heroes on Netflix, which moved me tremendously:
    Peter Petrelli, an EMS, a nurse, and a hero with amazing Powers, who saved NYC from Armageddon in Season 1, is in a Church in season 3, but only because his mother needs to go there, and he’s protecting her, and running away from the Government with her:

    Peter sees a statue of Jesus, raised, 2 fingers held up — we’ve all seen it before:

    Peter to Jesus:

    “I asked to be extraordinary, and I promised I’d make the world a better place. So, when I got my chance, I lived up to my end of the bargain.

    “For what?

    “I’m learning from my life. A lot of people are running for their lives. They’re hurt, they’re dying, and I can’t help them.

    “Do you even care? What you put people through? When they kneel here…[kneels]…before you….and they ask for help. Do you even listen?

    “Ohh. Man, I’m tired of fighting!

    “And I’m angry… … …at YOU.”

    [Lights match in a votive candle]

    “We had a deal. I think it’s about time you lived up to your end.


    [Sudden gust of wind blows out match….]

    As long as I don’t have to endure the commie crap in the breaks, there are some good shows on TV. Just wait until they’re on DVD or watch them on Hulu or Netflix. Throw the TV and Cable away. That scene, and many others I’ve seen on a few shows, prove that there are some good, even SUBVERSIVE, writers in Hollywood. Writing stuff that the Left won’t even comprehend, and that we’ll see as clear as crystal.

  • American Patriot

    I guess the biggest question is what are we going to do about this now? Nancy Pelosi was right when she told us all they would have to pass the bill before we got to see what’s in it. Practically every day now we learn more about what they foisted on us. As ordinary citizens, we apparently have no standing in the eyes of the Supreme Court, or any court for that matter, to sue for a review of the constitutionality of the law. It seems only those with some form of vested interest have the right to petition the court for that. In the meantime, employers and employees alike sit on pins and needles waiting for some kind of resolution that will either force us all to pay more for less care, or let us breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the government won’t be in charge of our healthcare

    I don’t have the answers for how we can resolve this. I did all the right things to prevent it, I paid attention, I read, I listened, and I called senators and congressmen/women who were suposed to be looking out for our best interests. All that got was an unconstitutional healthcare law and a busted economy. If the politicians responsible for this debacle are the best we can do, America is doomed, and I fear for her future. I won’t give up without a fight, but it may already be too late.

    Indeed. The scariest thing is, the trial lawyers are the ones whose ranks might contain someone with enough “standing” to be heard by any court, and — oops — they are almost all, with very few exceptions, Democrat devotees. The judges, from the lowest to the highest courts, are mostly former — wait for it — TRIAL LAWYERS.

    Not good, none of it. What I just noted is a major reason for our nation’s inability to combat illegal actions by our governments from township to municipality to county to state to Federal. The Dems own the law-process from bottom to top. From the Universities to the Benches. Who can fight that?

    i did that one year – thank God my bank had overdraft protection. without it i’d probably be just getting out of jail [not really but you never know]. added my income tax check to my check register twice [memory lapse] and wrote out checks. my bills were all paid and i felt great until i found out how much i owed the reserve. been there – done that and it doesn’t work unless you’re the government i guess.

    Let me get this straight . . . .
    We’ve been “gifted” with a health care plan
    which we are forced to purchase
    and fined if we don’t.
    Which purportedly covers at least
    ten thirty million more people,
    without adding a single new doctor,
    yet provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
    written by a committee whose chairman
    says he doesn’t understand it,
    passed by a Congress that didn’t read it AND
    exempted themselves from it,
    signed by a President who smokes,
    with funding administered
    by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,
    for which we’ll be taxed for four years
    before any benefits take effect,
    by a government which has
    already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
    all to be overseen by
    a surgeon general who is obese,
    and financed by a country that’s broke!!!

    There was an article several years ago where an accountant beat the IRS in court. He deducted all his PERSONAL expenses that related to him going/having to work against his income.

    I think I may do more research on that guy and prepare to do the same thing next year. It just doesn’t make sense to me that all the expenses I have in order to work cannot be matched with the income I make. Hell, business owners do the exact same thing but can write off all their expenses.

    “Life is an adventure when you put God in charge”

    Dhimmitude — What does it mean?

    Obama used it in the health care bill.

    Now isn’t this interesting? It was used in the health care law.

    Every day there’s another revelation of what Obama and his
    fellow Democrats are doing to our country.

    Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. Type it
    into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of
    the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists. It
    is a REAL word.

    **Word of the Day: Dhimmitude***

    ***Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim
    populations conquered through jihad***. Specifically, it is the TAXING of
    non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a
    coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.

    ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia
    Muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted
    from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the
    penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be
    “gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are
    specifically granted exemption based on this.

    How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS
    liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle,
    and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because
    I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis
    Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health
    needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will
    be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

    Dhimmitude serves two purposes: It enriches the Muslim masters
    AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive
    to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as
    well as the godless Generation X, Y, and Z types who have no moral
    anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem
    whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. “Sure, I’ll be a
    Muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I
    sign, bro?”

    I recommend sending this post to your contacts. This is
    desperately important and people need to know about it…quickly!

  • aprilnovember811

    Why aren’t they being arrested? We can only imagine what they’ve done that we don’t know about. Since Obama is technically an Apostate, I hope when he runs again for president, for which he is not eligible, another Sirhan Sirhan is waiting out there for him somewhere. He deserves no mercy for his raping of this nation. May life pay this devil Hussein back.

    Where’s your birth certificate you liar Soetoro? Still on cocaine? Still having gay sex? Read this, Obama is nothing but a deviant.

    That the usurper and his thugs are not deported or prisoned yet is beyond understanding.

    Americans must uphold the Constitution and the rule of law under God; expel anyone and anything unconstitutional out of America.

    Constitution is God given and so is American Experiment. Defying or denying what is God given is the trick of Satan and demons. The left belongs to the Devil.
