Welcome to the U.S.S.R.

Dictator Obama Interrogates All Opponents

Are you happy now, Progressives?  We have officially become the embodiment of the old U.S.S.R.   Big Brother Government, led by high profile Democrats, will now be dragging a private company before a powerful government panel for interrogation.  And the company will not be their only focus.  Oh, no.  Because this panel is also demanding names.  People’s names.  The people who work for the company and the people they talked to.   Not just their names, either.  They want to know everything about these individuals- their job history, their credit scores, their age, their family location, their spouse’s name, their children’s’ names, their social security numbers- and no doubt, their tax records.  Because this company has dared to report unfavorably about the government.  *gasp*  This government panel has every intention to punish this company and every individual in that company.  The new Obama government does not tolerate being opposed in any way and will put a stop to it.  This company will be the example.

McKinsey Personnel to be Interrogated
Henry Waxman, Obama's Witch Hunter

Max Baucus (D) leads the Senate and Henry Waxman (D) leads the House democrats in calling for McKinsey & Company’s interrogation before a special panel to investigate their recently released report (see report below) which shows that 30% of all businesses will drop all employee health care benefits when Obama-Care goes into effect in 2014.  This report also showed that of the companies who were intimately familiar with the provisions of Obama-care, 50% will definitely drop all health care benefits for their employees.  This report has been used by Republicans to criticize Obama’s failed policies and to call for the full repeal of Obama-care.  This, in the face of one of the most important presidential elections in U.S. history.

Max Baucus Needs Health Care Mandate

Baucus & Waxman are calling for a full document disclosure, methodology used, resumes of individuals who worked on the report and the names & locations of the businesses that McKinsey & Company interviewed.  The United States government works for us.  Not the other way around.  Who does Mr. Obama think he is?  Who do these senators think they are?  Do we now have a dictator-in-chief?  Are we now to fear the government?  Is no one allowed to report the truth about the government when that truth reflects poorly on the dictator?  Who will be hauled in front of this panel next?  You?  Me, for writing my blog?

Bloggers Next?

If we, liberals and conservatives alike, do not stand up to this kind of government tyranny, it will indeed be us in front of that panel someday.  Outrage is the only way to define this most recent abomination from the Obama administration.

  1. Hey Shortie
    I am glad that you dumped this abusive libtard. They show nothing but disdain and disrespect and do not try to
    engage in meaninful conversation.

    blessings on you and yous
    John

    • yeah, I’m going to add new rules to posting:

      If you are illogical or refuse to answer reasonable questions, you are banned.
      If you deemed to be simply carping from the sidelines, you are banned.

      I need to keep these types of liberals off my site. I believe their goal is exactly the goal of that blogger we were talking about: to distract from the actual point.

  2. Ben Hoffman, as anyone can see, is an angry, frustrated liberal. All he can do is call names, carp and insult. He has not answered a single question I have asked him. He has not addressed the issue, other than by calling me a liar. Ben was issued a warning about his abusive language and has continued despite it. He is therefore banned.

  3. You are completely illogical to say that something is only ‘valid’ if the names and personal information of the people who wrote the report are made public. One does not follow the other. There is no cause & effect between these two things. Validity has nothing to do with privacy. You clearly want to believe whatever you want to believe regardless of whether it is logical.

    Ben, part of your answer startles me. You actually believe the government SHOULD get to know the personal information of the people who wrote the report. Boy or boy. Wait until a Republican is in power and they want to find out about YOU, your family (if you have one) and all YOUR personal information. Because it is clear that you are a progressive liberal. I’ll bet you a million dollars that you and your ilk would be screaming, “I have a RIGHT to privacy!” as they haul you, your business, your personal life before hundreds of cameras, sic the IRS after you and make public every skeleton in your private life!

    • You are completely illogical to say that something is only ‘valid’ if the names and personal information of the people who wrote the report are made public.

      I didn’t say that. See, you can’t make an argument without lying. Or do you just not understand what is meant by methodology?

      • “Congress wants the names and qualifications of those who conducted the studies.
        If they’re unwilling to reveal their methodology, it’s not a valid study, simple as that.”

        No, it was YOU who made the link between ‘methodology’ and the ‘credentials’ of the people who worked on the report. I was responding to your own link of ideas. So, are you saying that all that McKinsey need give the government panel is their ‘methodology’? And NOT the names of the people who worked on the report, nor the companies they interviewed? Are you saying that if they leave out the names & resumes of the people who worked on the report then it would still be a ‘valid’ study in your view?

        Further, if you continue with name calling (ie, lying) you will be refused further permission to comment on this blog. That is your warning, Ben. Abuse is not necessary for dialog. You should know better than that. Or do you, like all liberals, need to name call to make a point?

      • You are completely illogical…
        Because it is clear that you are a progressive liberal.
        Or do you, like all liberals, need to name call to make a point?
        Ben, you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

        Short little sheep, you’re a hypocrite. Go ahead and ban me so I’m not tempted to come back. 🙂

      • I didn’t call you illogical. You cut off my sentence most disingenuously. I said, “you are completely illogical to say….” Furthermore, addressing someone’s lack of logic is not abuse in my book. As for me saying you are a liberal or a progressive liberal: is that name calling? I mean, I wouldn’t want to be called those names either! But isn’t that a mantel you claim proudly? As for you not knowing what you are talking about…. well, that is not name calling. That is just a fact.

  4. O.K. what are the Republicans offering as a replacement…private insurance coverage where the CEO’s make 20 or 30 million a year and they fight every little bit against paying out claims.

    • The point of this article is not to discuss the contents of Obama-care. The point of this article is to discuss the strong arm tactics of the Obama administration against anyone who blows the whistle on them. This new inquiry is frightening to the civil rights of each and every one of us.

    • The Republicans are offering a lot of things, but they were shut down by Obama and not one of them adopted.
      This is a narcissistic pretty boy who was raised as an only child by two women. He thinks that he should be king instead of president. He is already going to be in violation of the War Powers Act in two more days. His health care law has already been declared unconstitutional by an appeal judge and he ignores it and goes right along. He is a socialist radical who is running roughshod over the american people and will be voted out in a landslide. He refuses new oil drlling permits, new refineries and a new pipeline from Canada all of which would dramatically reduce our gas price. He is now setting up his promises to run out of business any company that he does not agree with their carbon footprint and is in progress to closing down major coal fired electrical plants. Google the lies of Obama and The broken promises of Obama.

    • Hey Cultural Limits
      Many employers wil drop employee health care BECAUSE OF OBAMAMCARE. There already have been over 1,300 exemptions handed out because it is so problematic. Great health care coverage huh?
      John

    • Which part is a lie? Perhaps you have not followed the links? Liberals need to call the truth, ‘lies’, because they can not actually address the point. They know that there is no defense for liberal activity.

      • From your own link:

        McKinsey stepped, perhaps unintentionally, into politically charged territory last week when it published the results of an in-house study on the impact health care reform will have on the employer-sponsored insurance market. The problem: The materials they used apparently did not meet the standards the firm would normally apply to such an issue — and the results were wildly at odds with numerous other, more rigorous studies. That led to private infighting at McKinsey, and public pressure from the White House and congressional Democrats for their leaders to release the survey materials. Thus far they have declined to do so on the grounds that the survey is proprietary.

        However, one insider told TPM that McKinsey would be loath to make those documents or the methodology public because they would embarrass the firm.

        This is a study that Republicans are using to try to repeal the health care reform bill, and McKinsey won’t release their methodology? That’s because they’re LYING. We have every right to have that information because it affects policy.

      • Ben, you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. McKinsey & Company is the largest business consulting firm in the WORLD. They are also one of the most respected. They have done reports and studies on the environment that would benefit the liberal agenda. Their offices span many countries and are not exclusive to the U.S.A. They are not political and have absolutely nothing to do with republicans or democrats. The reason they would be embarrassed, if you finished reading the link and the articles related to them, is that every client they interviewed was guaranteed secrecy. If McKinsey & Company reveal their sources, no company would ever trust them again. Get it straight.

        Also, what RIGHT do you have here? This is a private company. Neither you, nor the government has any ‘right’ to any information they have. Find me the law that demonstrates this so-called ‘right’ of yours.

      • The reason they would be embarrassed, if you finished reading the link and the articles related to them, is that every client they interviewed was guaranteed secrecy. If McKinsey & Company reveal their sources, no company would ever trust them again. Get it straight.

        Nope, they guaranteed the interviewees confidentiality. Congress wants the names and qualifications of those who conducted the studies.

        If they’re unwilling to reveal their methodology, it’s not a valid study, simple as that.
