Repeal The Affordable Care Act

maxresdefault-3.jpg

A few weeks after leaving office former President Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Troy the Plumber to come out and fix it. Troy drives to President Obama’s new house, which is located in a very exclusive, gated community near Chicago, where all the residents have a net income of way more than $250,000 per year. Troy arrives and takes his tools into the house. He is led to the guest bathroom that contains the leaky pipe under the sink. Troy assesses the problem and tells Obama that it’s an easy repair, that will take less than 10 minutes. Obama asks Troy how much it will cost. Troy checks his rate chart and says, “$9,500.” “What?! $9,500?!” Obama asks, stunned, “But you said it’s an easy repair. Michelle will whip me if I pay a plumber that much!” Troy says, “Yes, but what I do is charge those who make more than $250,000 per year a much higher amount so I can fix the plumbing of poorer people for free. This has always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied the Democrat Congress, who passed this philosophy into law. Now all plumbers must do business this way. It’s known as the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014’. I’m surprised you haven’t heard of it.” In spite of that, Obama tells Troy there’s no way he’s paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Troy leaves. Obama spends the next hour flipping through the phone book calling for another plumber, but he finds that all other plumbing businesses in the area have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Troy’s price, Obama does nothing and the leak goes unrepaired for several more days. A week later the leak is so bad President Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink. Michelle is not happy as she has Oprah and guests arriving the next morning. The bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there’s a risk the room will flood, so Obama calls Troy and pleads with him to return. Troy goes back to Obama’s house, looks at the leaky pipe, checks his new rate chart and says, “Let’s see, this will now cost you $21,000.” Obama quickly fires back, “What? A few days ago you told me it would cost $9,500!” Troy explains, “Well, because of the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act,’ a lot of wealthier people are learning how to maintain and take care of their own plumbing, so there are fewer payers in the plumbing exchanges. As a result, the price I have to charge wealthy people like you keeps rising. Not only that, but for some reason the demand for plumbing work by those who get it for free has skyrocketed! There’s a long waiting list of those who need repairs, but the amount we get doesn’t cover our costs, especially paperwork and record-keeping. This unfortunately has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, they’re not being replaced, and nobody is going into the plumbing business because they know they can’t make any money at it. I’m hurting too, all thanks to rich people like you who won’t pay their ‘fair share’. On the other hand, why didn’t you buy plumbing insurance last December? If you had bought plumbing insurance available under the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act,’ all this would have been covered by your policy.” “You mean I wouldn’t have to pay anything to have you fix my plumbing problem?” asks Obama. “Well, not exactly,” replies Troy. “You would have had to buy the insurance before the deadline, which has passed now. And, because you’re rich, you would have had to pay $34,000 in premiums, which would have given you a ‘silver’ plan, and then, since this would have been your first repair, you would have to pay up to the $21,000 deductible, and anything over that would have a $7,500 co-pay, and then there’s the mandatory maintenance program, which is covered up to 17.5%, so there are some costs involved. Nothing is for free.” “WHAT?!” exclaims Obama. “Why so much for a puny sink leak?” With a bland look, Troy replies, “Well, paperwork, mostly, like I said. And the internal cost of the program itself. You don’t think a program of this complexity and scope can run itself, do you? Besides, there are millions of folks with lower incomes than you, even many in the ‘middle class’, who qualify for subsidies that people like you must support. That’s why they call it the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act’! Only people who don’t make much money can afford it. If you want affordable plumbing, you’ll have to give away most of what you have accumulated and cut your and Michelle’s income by about 90%. Then you can qualify to GET your ‘Fair Share’ instead of GIVING it.” “But who would pass a crazy act like the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act’, exclaims the exasperated Obama. After a sigh, Troy replies, “Congress … because they didn’t read it.” This will help you understand how the Obama Health Care Plan functions – – – and the primary reason behind the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014’. What a marvelous explanation this is.

If Only It Were True

(This bit of levity puts things in perspective)

Only weeks after leaving office on January 20, 2017, former President Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Troy the Plumber to come out and fix it. Troy drives to President Obama’s new house, which is located in a very exclusive, gated community near Chicago where all the residents have a net income of way more than $250,000 per year.

Troy arrives and takes his tools into the house. He is led to the guest bathroom that contains the leaky pipe under the sink. Troy assesses the problem and tells President Obama that it’s an easy repair that will take less than 10 minutes. President Obama asks Troy how much it will cost.

Obama spends the next hour flipping through the phone book calling for another plumber, but he finds that all other plumbing businesses in the area have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Troy’s price, Obama does nothing and the leak goes un-repaired for several more days. A week later the leak is so bad President Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink. Michelle is not happy as she has Oprah and guests arriving the next morning. The bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there’s a risk the room will flood, so Obama calls Troy and pleads with him to return.

Redistribution or Retribution?

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

Three simple letters “d-i-s” spell the difference between BO’s plan to tax the wealthy, to paying the black population for being brought here against their will. Barack Hussein Obama has done more to polarize this country than any single living human being. I read the blogs and it’s a “we versus them mentality.” It’s tatamount to playing “war games.” The liberal bloggers revel in touting the conservatives with their new found hero. The libs also love to tear down Sarah Palin, but just ask one question about BO’s past affiliations and they challenge John McCain’s time in the Viet Cong POW camp. Anyone who talks up the downfall of the wealthy is a hero. Categorically, a conservative is classified as rich. There are plenty of us who are poor, but we choose to play by the rules not play the system.

 I never heard of a Community Organizer until this election. I since have found out that organizing is an industry. They have a union (ACORN) to make them stronger. They lobby the government for more give aways. They are making the rest of us pay(retribution). The sub-prime debacle is the result of too many democratic liberals feeling too guilty about our forefathers. The Civil Rights Act, the Federal Housing Act, the Community Reinvestment Act are examples of the evil foist upon us by our liberal democratic leaders.

BO’s African family is reported to have owned slaves. BO however does not, nor do I, Nor does anyone I know. So why are we being made to pay retribution by redistributing the wealth? In the USA, the opportunity exists equally for all of us. Why is the USA still the country of choice for people from around the world? They sneak in by the droves to take advantage of our great country. Most of them come to make a living. They clean houses, cut grass, clean tables, wash dishes, cook, care for the elderly, they work, they save, they make it. On the other side of this argument are the people whom BO is pretending to care for. They are the ones who are “under” the plumber, who challenged his tax plan, this week. That plumber is the middle class. He works in a shitty environment to sell $250,000.00 worth of services and probably gets to keep half of that before Uncle takes his share. BO proudly exclaimed that he is just trying to give the little guy a chance like the rest of us.

BO send your people to school and make them learn to read and write. Quit worring about paying retribution, they are not slaves any more.
