Don't Delay Obamacare, Let Democrats Hang Themselves - Newsmax - One huge political question surrounds the catastrophic launch of Obamacare: Will the canceled insurance contracts for millions, terminated doctor-patient relationships, sticker shock from higher premiums and deductibility, damage to job hiring and economic growth and the administration's double-talk get the GOP off the shutdown hook for the 2014 midterm elections? But Christopher Ruddy, founder and CEO of Newsmax, makes an interesting point about this: “The key to stopping Obamacare is for its opponents to win in congressional elections in 2014. Delaying Obamacare only helps the Democrats who support this boondoggle.”So far, with all the problems plaguing the Obamacare website, Senator Marco Rubio is leading the Republican charge to delay the March 31 enrollment deadline and tax penalty. And a lot of Republicans are lining up behind him. But is that the right tactic? ...... Now, President Barack Obama recently appointed a new team to fix the website. And that team promptly predicted a successful fix by the end of November. So if that happens, it’s possible the whole Obamacare-disaster issue dies. But according to highly respected health-industry expert Bob Laszewski, the chances of that are low. He says it will take at least a year to fix the “backend” problems — the technical links between the website, the HHS, and most importantly the insurance companies, which are receiving massively error-laden information.

(2) 10 Things Obamacare Won't Tell You - Marketwatch - 1. “You might want to avoid signing up right away.” In the offices of certain government officials and health insurance companies, a ticking countdown to a specific date was posted on the walls for months: Oct. 1. That was the day of the official ribbon-cutting for the exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act (commonly called Obamacare), when Americans began lining up for 2014 individual health insurance. But because the law’s future was uncertain until the Supreme Court upheld it in mid-2012, the exchanges had to scramble to get ready for opening day. Thirty-six states declined to set up their own exchanges for 2014 (each state has just one), so federal health officials had to do it instead — cramming years of work into a tight time frame. “Some people we’ve talked to will count it as a victory if the lights come on Oct. 1,” said Eric Johnson, a Columbia business professor and co-director of the university’s Center for the Decision Sciences, before the launch. (The small-business section of the exchanges in those 36 states won’t be able to accept online applications until November, the administration said, and some of the states running their own exchanges may also be running behind, having not yet announced when they will open to small employers.)

(3) Was the Obamacare Implosion the Real Goal All Along - Morgan Brittany - Townhall Finance - Something is rotten in Denmark.For the past few weeks I have tried to wrap my head around this rollout of Obamacare and how it has crashed and burned in such a rapid and dramatic fashion. My question is; why from day one was this an immediate disaster? How could so many so-called experts along with $600 million taxpayer dollars have created something so useless and worthless?With over three years to construct the website, why was it never means tested before it was presented?Why didn’t it work so easily and efficiently that everyone would praise it to the heavens? Like I said, something stinks.Then it dawned on me that maybe my theory about the Obamacare failure had always been right on target. Months ago I spoke out on radio and television about how I thought this nightmare of a bill couldn’t possibly work and it was all just an exercise that would be so complicated and dysfunctional no one would want it.Once people became more angry and frustrated they would demand the government fix it, thus ushering in single payer.

(4) Democratic Senators Pen Letter to Obama  and UN, Opposing Arms Trade Treaty - Townhall - Though Secretary of State John Kerry signed the UN Arms Trade Treaty in September, there are positive signs that the treaty will be dead on arrival in the Senate. Last week Sens. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and Joe Manchin, D-W.V., released a bipartisan letter opposing the treaty, which was signed by 48 of their colleagues. And on Tuesday, four Democratic Senators sent a letter to President Obama, Kerry and the UN stating that the small arms treaty would not be ratified. The letter, sent by Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., said that “because of unaddressed concerns that this Treaty’s obligations could undermine our nation’s sovereignty and the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, we would oppose the Treaty if it were to come before the U.S. Senate.” Read more.......
