  • I Got A Phone Call From WA DC

    Yep, May 19, 2017, Rep Kilmer’s Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    I received the call on my time,  12:50 PM West Coast time.

    We had about a 20 minute conversation.

    The rest of the story  is the timing  and content of the ridiculously absurd  email Rep Kilmer Friday, sent to me May 19, 2017 10:52 AM.

    ————————————————————

    THIS IS THE STORY

    I have been emailing  a bunch of the postings on this website to Rep Kilmer on his “contact me”.  Checking the box I want a response.

    It took some goading, doing something continuously, provoking and  annoying, to stimulate action, reaction but I finally got  a  response from Kilmer’s office in WA DC.

    Martha wants to know

    What  I want from WA STATE Representative Derek Kilmer?

    Really? What do I want? This is my 920th posting on behindmyback.org. established  Jan 29, 2013

    Simply put, I want what Abraham Lincoln   wanted on Nov 19, 1863 “Gettysburg Address” that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    ———————————————————-

    What do I want?

    As a concerned American Grandmother, with three children, (10) grandchildren and (9) great grand children…

    I want exactly the same as We the hard working  American citizens want, the WA DC. establishment  of elected Representatives, both Republican’s  and Democrat’s to work for the American people not the party.

    What “we the American people want” is for all elected MEMBERS OF CONGRESS et al, like resistance, bad mouthing, obstructing, Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Cantwell, Murray, and Kilmer to follow the lead of President Trump and put America and the American people first.

    ——————————————————————————-

    To the WA DC Politico establishment congress et al,  I would ask…

    “When honor and the law no longer stood  on the same side of the line, what did you stand for?

    You, members of congress et al, had a choice

    “You always have a choice. don’t ever imagine you don’t. Whatever you do, it’s a decision and you have to accept responsibility for it. That’s when honor becomes more than empty words.”

    Next time you’re faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, vote for the right thing. it will hurt all American’s less in the long run.”

    —————————————————–

    You, the establishment politicians,  lost the election on Nov 8, 2016.

    YOU WERE OVERWHELMINGLY  REJECTED BY AMERICAN VOTERS

    GET OVER IT.

    TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE WAS NOT A  UNITED NATIONS GLOBALIZATION POLITICIAN AND HE LOVES AMERICA

    “WHEN HONOR AND THE LAW NO LONGER STOOD  ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE LINE, WHAT DID TRUMP STAND FOR?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE HAD A PLAN FOR AMERICA. HE  SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FIRST 100 DAY PLAN FOR AMERICA.

    AMERICAN VOTERS HAD A CHOICE

    IT WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    WITHOUT AMERICA THERE WOULD BE NO FREE WORLD

    WITHOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP THERE WOULD BE NO AMERICA

    AMERICA HAS DULY ELECTED  INTELLIGENT, HONORABLE, HONEST,  STRONG, LAW ENFORCING, HARD WORKING CONSTITUTIONALLY MOTIVATED,  TRULY PATRIOTIC, GLOBALLY POWERFUL  AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

    WHAT DO I WANT FROM WA DC?

    READ THE PLANS FOR AMERICA THAT MADE DONALD J. TRUMP PRESIDENT.

    Members of congress et al, The Next time you are  faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, protecting America’s borders, creating prosperity, like putting justice on the right side of the law, vote for the right thing for the American People.

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ———————————————————————————

    Kilmer’s Martha and I talked for about 20 minutes, partly about lies and atrocities committed in America.

    The Benghazi lies, that I knew about two weeks after it happened and told Kilmer about in 2012.  The media cover up of the rape of a five year old developmentally disabled girl in Twin Falls Idaho, (got no response from Kilmer, Cantwell or Murray)  Female genital mutilation,  by a doctor Detroit U.S.A.  practicing medicine in Henry Ford Hospital.

    Martha said she would check out my website.

    And,  when Martha asked me What I wanted  Rep Kilmer to do about Obamacare, I said, I want Rep Kilmer to stand up in the U.S. House of Representative, cross the isle, and support a bipartisan fix in the best interest of the American people..

    I asked Martha to let me know when Rep Kilmer will be on C-SPAN doing it.

    The bottom line

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    Yep, May 19, 2017 Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    My time in Port Angeles WA,  12:50 PM

    Martha and I  had a 20 minute conversation 42 MINUTES  later WA DC time

    I received the  ridiculously absurd ..wildly illogical and wholly inappropriate robo response email from Rep Kilmer

    Dear Ms. Hewett,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about President Donald Trump and the policies his administration is pursuing. I share your concern, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    When I think about the next four years, I think about the future I want for my two little girls. I want my daughters – and all kids – to be able to get a top-notch education where their class sizes are small and their teachers are treated like professionals. As they grow older, I want my kids to be able to go to college without taking on mounds of debt. When they’re old enough, I want each of them to be able to get a good job that pays a good wage and has decent benefits – where they’re respected as working people. I want that for all Americans. I want my daughters to grow up in a world where discrimination is a thing of the past – where regardless of your race, religion, gender, orientation, ethnicity, ability or disability, you are a valued member of our community and our country. I want that future for them. I want them to grow up in a world where we protect the planet because we know our kids are only as safe as the water they drink, the air they breathe, and the earth we pass on to them.

    Frankly, those are the issues, among many others, that will be at stake in the years ahead.

    Unfortunately, the new Administration appears to have the wrong priorities. President Trump has already pursued policies that target immigrants, divide refugees by religion, and deny healthcare to millions of Americans. He has sought to undermine ongoing investigations into Russia’s engagement with our election and has called into question the rule of law. He has levied attacks on the judiciary and created enormous concerns about his own conflicts of interest. He has questioned the vital need to protect our environment for future generations.

    Please know that I will continue to oppose these efforts. America is the sum of its diverse parts, and I will vehemently oppose any attempts to undermine protection of our values.

    I will also do all I can to ensure that Congress exercises its oversight authority and advocates for the rule of law. The Constitution calls for protection of civil rights and civil liberties. It calls for the protection of free speech, freedom of religion, and a free press. It created an independent judiciary, empowered to review the actions of the executive branch to ensure they are legal and Constitutional. I respect that, and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that our president respects those principles as well.

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “Public sentiment is everything.” If we are going to advance thoughtful, positive policies and if we are going to stop wrong-headed, divisive ones, we need citizens like you to be engaged. Thank you for that.

    Hearing the views of folks in our region is important to my work. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.
    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

    1. A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge, 18 …

    As part of his work in revising the laws of Virginia during the late 1770s and early 1780s, Thomas Jefferson put forth a bill that has become one of his most enduring works on the subject of education: Bill 79, “A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge.” Its oft-quoted preamble reads as follows:

    ————————
    Whereas it appeareth that however certain forms of government are better calculated than others to protect individuals in the free exercise of their natural rights, and are at the same time themselves better guarded against degeneracy, yet experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms,

    those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny;

    AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE MOST EFFECTUAL MEANS OF PREVENTING THIS WOULD BE, TO ILLUMINATE, AS FAR AS PRACTICABLE, THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE AT LARGE,

    AND MORE ESPECIALLY TO GIVE THEM KNOWLEDGE OF THOSE FACTS, WHICH HISTORY EXHIBITETH, THAT, POSSESSED THEREBY OF THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHER AGES AND COUNTRIES, THEY MAY BE ENABLED TO KNOW AMBITION UNDER ALL ITS SHAPES, AND PROMPT TO EXERT THEIR NATURAL POWERS TO DEFEAT ITS PURPOSES;

    And whereas it is generally true that that people will be happiest whose laws are best, and are best administered, and that laws will be wisely formed, and honestly administered, in proportion as those who form and administer them are wise and honest; whence it becomes expedient for promoting the publick happiness that those persons, whom nature hath endowed with genius and virtue, should be rendered by liberal education worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposit of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens, and that they should be called to that charge without regard to wealth, birth or other accidental condition or circumstance; but the indigence of the greater number disabling them from so educating, at their own expence, those of their children whom nature hath fitly formed and disposed to become useful instruments for the public, IT IS BETTER THAT SUCH SHOULD BE SOUGHT FOR AND EDUCATED AT THE COMMON EXPENCE OF ALL, THAN THAT THE HAPPINESS OF ALL SHOULD BE CONFIDED TO THE WEAK OR WICKED:
    ——————————————————————–
    The Bill was presented in the House of Delegates in 1778 and 1780, but was not passed; James Madison presented the bill several more times to the state legislature while Jefferson was serving in Paris as Minister to France. A much-revised version was finally passed into law in 1796 AS AN “ACT TO ESTABLISH PUBLIC SCHOOLS.”

    TRUTH, POLITICS AND “AMERICAN LEADERSHIP”

    ARE YOU VOTING FOR “AN AMERICAN WORLD LEADER” IN 2016?

    A LEADER FOR THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY FORCE ON THE PLANET?

     Do you want an American world leader that speaks softly and carries a big stick? Are you satisfied with the leader that had a phone and a pen? And, as president of the United States of America, his usual “course of action” in a crisis, was the GOLF COURSE?

    ——————————————————–

    What have American voters learned from history?
    HAS  PRESIDENT OBAMA BEEN A WORLD LEADER?
    HAS  PRESIDENT OBAMA PROTECTED  OUR HOMELAND AND AMERICAN CITIZENS FROM LONE WOLF ATTACKS?
    WHO’S PROTECTING AMERICAS AUTONOMY? IS OUR FREEDOM FROM EXTERNAL CONTROL OR INFLUENCE SECURE? IS OUR INDEPENDENCE SECURE?

    WHAT DID AMERICA’S PRESIDENT OBAMA HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH BY ATTENDING AND SPEAKING AT THE SEPT. 28, 2015 UNITED NATIONS MEETING?
    AFTER OVER 14 YEARS OF UNRESOLVED BLOODY WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST?
    ——————————————
    THE UNITED NATIONS HAS FOUR PURPOSES:
    1. To maintain international peace and security
    2. To develop friendly relations among nations
    3. To cooperate in solving international problems and in promoting respect for human rights
    4. And to be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations

    ———————————–
    Sept. 28, 2015 PRESIDENT OBAMA TOLD THE UN INTERNATIONAL BODY THAT HE COMMANDS THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY FORCE ON THE PLANET. but no matter how powerful its military or strong its economy, the United States could not solve the world’s problems on its own, he said.

    WHY DID AMERICA’S PRESIDENT ATTEND AND SPEAK AT THE SEPT. 28, 2015 UNITED NATIONS MEETING?

    The speeches of President Obama, followed more than an hour later by President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, dominated the opening of the annual General Assembly of world leaders.
    MR. OBAMA MADE A FORCEFUL DEFENSE OF DIPLOMACY BUT ALSO CASTIGATED RUSSIA BY NAME MULTIPLE TIMES IN HIS SPEECH FOR ITS DEFENSE OF THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT, its takeover of Crimea and its actions supporting Ukrainian rebels.
    “Dangerous currents risk pulling us back into a darker, more disordered world,” Mr. Obama said.
    Those currents include major powers that want to ignore international rules AND IMPOSE ORDER THROUGH FORCE OF MILITARY POWER, HE SAID.
    “In accordance with this logic, we should support tyrants like Bashar al-Assad who drops barrel bombs to massacre innocent civilians because the alternative is surely worse,” he said in comments that seemed to be aimed directly at Mr. Putin.
    In what amounted to a basic rebuttal of Mr. Obama, the Russian leader extolled the Syrian leader, saying that he represented stability and that his forces needed support to fight the Islamic State extremists now threatening the region — even though Mr. Assad’s forces are for the most part fighting rebel groups dedicated to his ouster, not the Islamic State militants.
    “We think it’s an enormous mistake to refuse to cooperate with the Syrian government and its armed forces who are valiantly fighting terrorism face to face,” Mr. Putin said.
    But Mr. Putin, in what appeared to be a step to outmaneuver Mr. Obama on Syria, also spoke of creating “a genuinely broad international coalition” to fight the Islamic State, including a Security Council resolution to “coordinate” military action.
    How the United States and its allies will respond to such an idea is unclear. But President François Hollande of France, speaking to reporters later, welcomed the idea of a “broad coalition” and even a Security Council resolution as long as two conditions were met: a stop to the bombings and a “political transition with departure of Assad.” Mr. Hollande did not elaborate on exactly when Mr. Assad would have to leave.
    In remarks about foreign Islamic State fighters that seemed clearly aimed at stoking fears in Europe, Mr. Putin said: “We cannot allow these criminals who have already felt the smell of blood to return back home and continue their evil doings. No one wants this to happen, does he?”
    Mr. Putin did not hear Mr. Obama speak — the Russian leader had just arrived in New York from Moscow. But the tensions between the two are well known. In a deft bit of diplomacy, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sat in between them during a lunch he hosted for a number of top leaders.
    In his toast, Mr. Ban, invoking the saying “There is no such thing as a free lunch,” exhorted his guests to help the United Nations reach the new Sustainable Development Goals for eliminating extreme poverty and hunger by 2030.
    Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin clinked glasses after Mr. Ban’s toast.
    In his own toast, Mr. Obama praised Mr. Ban and said “We are facing extraordinary challenges today, ones that test our capacity to work together.”
    Later in the afternoon Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin posed for photographers before a long-awaited private meeting between the two, which lasted for 95 minutes. They shook hands at the start but made no comments, and the details of their discussions were not immediately disclosed.
    In his earlier speech, Mr. Obama also chided China for its expansions in the South China Sea and Iran for its support of Mr. Assad, as well as the broader anti-American messages that emanate from the Iranians.
    “Chanting ‘Death to America’ does not create jobs, or make Iran more secure,” Mr. Obama said.
    Mr. Obama said that he was realistic, but he said realism had to take into account the brutality of the Assad government in Syria, where war has raged for more than four years.
    “Let’s remember how this started,” Mr. Obama said of the Syria conflict. “Assad reacted to peaceful protest by escalating repression and killing and in turn created the environment for the current strife.”
    Such violence makes it impossible for the vast majority of Syria’s population to accept Mr. Assad as their leader, Mr. Obama said.
    Similarly, Mr. Obama said, a fidelity to international rules required that the United States respond forcefully to Russia’s intervention in Crimea and Ukraine. He said that the United States had few economic interests in the region and understood the long history that Russia had with Crimea and Ukraine.
    “But we cannot stand by when the sovereignty and territorial integrity of a nation is flagrantly violated.” He added: “That’s the basis of the sanctions that the United States and our partners imposed on Russia. It’s not a desire to return to the Cold War.”
    MR. OBAMA TOLD THE INTERNATIONAL BODY THAT HE COMMANDS THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY FORCE ON THE PLANET. But no matter how powerful its military or strong its economy, the United States could not solve the world’s problems on its own, he said.
    He pointed to the war in Iraq where, despite sending more than 100,000 troops and spending trillions of dollars, the United States was unsuccessful in stabilizing the country.
    MR. OBAMA EXTOLLED THE DIPLOMATIC COURSE IN WHICH THE UNITED STATES AND OTHER WORLD POWERS had successfully negotiated a nuclear agreement with Iran. And, in one of the first lines to yield cheers, he said that the United States had finally acknowledged that its posture toward Cuba had been wrong and that under his watch, diplomatic relations had been restored.
    “As these contacts yield progress, I’m confident that our Congress will inevitably lift an embargo that should not be in place anymore,” he said to cheers. “Change won’t come overnight to Cuba but I’m confident that openness not coercion will support the reforms and better the life that the Cuban people deserve.”
    MR. OBAMA MADE A FORCEFUL CASE FOR DEMOCRACY AND POINTED OUT THAT “DICTATORSHIPS ARE UNSTABLE.”
    “You can jail your opponents but you can’t imprison ideas,” he said.
    President Xi Jinping of China, speaking later in the day, reiterated what he called the Chinese priority of peace and stability for its economic development. He also demonstrated China’s enormous financial influence by announcing a $1 billion fund for the United Nations, and said his country would create a permanent standby peacekeeping contingent of 8,000 police and troops in case it is needed by the world body.
    Despite a swooning Russian economy and Western condemnation of Russia’s takeover of Crimea and intervention in Ukraine, MR. PUTIN SEEMS TO HAVE SURPRISED THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WITH AN INTELLIGENCE-SHARING ALLIANCE WITH IRAQ, SYRIA AND IRAN ABOUT THE ISLAMIC STATE MILITANT GROUP THAT OCCUPIES PARTS OF SYRIA AND IRAQ.
    The Russians and Americans even squabbled in recent days over who asked whom for the meeting between the two presidents.
    Mr. Putin has said that Mr. Assad is a vital bulwark against the Islamic State; Mr. Obama has said that Mr. Assad must leave before the conflict in Syria can be resolved.
    President Hassan Rouhani of Iran, in his speech, offered to help to “bring about democracy” in the two conflicts where it has influence, in Syria and Iran, even as he signaled his support for the Russian notion of a Security Council resolution.
    “We propose that the fight against terrorism be incorporated into a binding international document and no country be allowed to use terrorism for the purpose of intervention in the affairs of other countries,” Mr. Rouhani said.
    Mr. Obama was the first in a line of speakers from the big powers scheduled to speak at the 70th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, where the Syria conflict and its consequences — the spread of Islamic State jihadism and the surge of refugees into Europe — were dominant themes.
    In opening the General Assembly, Mr. Ban struck a somber tone, asserting that: “Inequality is growing, TRUST IS FADING, AND IMPATIENCE WITH LEADERSHIP CAN BE SEEN AND FELT FAR AND WIDE.”
    The remarks by Mr. Ban, who is approaching his last year as the secretary general, were unusually pointed.
    He called to leaders to not stay in power beyond their constitutional terms in office, pressed permanent members of the Security Council to put aside their divisions, called explicitly for an “end to bombings” in Yemen, and named the five countries that, as he said, “hold the key” to peace in Syria: Russia, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey.
    Mr. Ban said 100 million civilians are in need of aid, for which the United Nations has pleaded for $20 billion. He rebuked the rich for not giving more, giving examples: One third of what the organization needs for Syria and Iraq has been received and for Gambia, whose children are among the hungriest in the world, nothing has come in.
    He stepped up his criticism of countries that shut their borders to refugees. “I urge Europe to do more,” reminding the Continent’s leaders that “after the Second World War it was Europeans seeking assistance.”
    He marked two pieces of good news. He praised the nuclear pact that the world powers reached with Iran. And with some relief, he noted that the world had come together to stop the Ebola virus from spreading.
    President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, who was the first to speak, scolded those countries that have tried to prohibit refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East, pointing out that Brazil hosts Syrians and Haitians now as it opened the doors to Europeans and Asians a century ago. “In a world where goods, capital, data and ideas flow freely, it is absurd to impede the free flow of people,” she said.

    THIS IS THE LAW

    923 18 U.S.C. 371 CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD THE UNITED STATES

    Hass, 216 U.S. at 479-480. In Hammerschmidt, Chief Justice Taft, defined “defraud” as follows:

    TO CONSPIRE TO DEFRAUD THE UNITED STATES means primarily to cheat the Government out of property or money, but it also means to interfere with or obstruct one of its lawful governmental functions by deceit, craft or trickery, or at least by means that are dishonest. It is not necessary that the Government shall be subjected to property or pecuniary loss by the fraud, but only that its legitimate official action and purpose shall be defeated by misrepresentation, chicane or the overreaching of those charged with carrying out the governmental intention.

    Hammerschmidt, 265 U.S. at 188.

    The general purpose of this part of the statute is to protect governmental functions from frustration and distortion through deceptive practices. Section 371 reaches “any conspiracy for the purpose of impairing, obstructing or defeating the lawful function of any department of Government.” Tanner v. United States, 483 U.S. 107, 128 (1987); see Dennis v. United States, 384 U.S. 855 (1966). The “defraud part of section 371 criminalizes any willful impairment of a legitimate function of government, whether or not the improper acts or objective are criminal under another statute.” United States v. Tuohey, 867 F.2d 534, 537 (9th Cir. 1989).

    The word “defraud” in Section 371 not only reaches financial or property loss through use of a scheme or artifice to defraud but also is designed and intended to protect the integrity of the United States and its agencies, programs and policies. United States v. Burgin, 621 F.2d 1352, 1356 (5th Cir.), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 1015 (1980); see United States v. Herron, 825 F.2d 50, 57-58 (5th Cir.); United States v. Winkle, 587 F.2d 705, 708 (5th Cir. 1979), cert. denied, 444 U.S. 827 (1979). Thus, proof that the United States has been defrauded under this statute does not require any showing of monetary or proprietary loss. United States v. Conover, 772 F.2d 765 (11th Cir. 1985), aff’d, sub. nom. Tanner v. United States, 483 U.S. 107 (1987); United States v. Del Toro, 513 F.2d 656 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 423 U.S. 826 (1975); United States v. Jacobs, 475 F.2d 270 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 414 U.S. 821 (1973).

    Thus, if the defendant and others have engaged in dishonest practices in connection with a program administered by an agency of the Government, it constitutes a fraud on the United States under Section 371. United States v. Gallup, 812 F.2d 1271, 1276 (10th Cir. 1987); Conover, 772 F.2d at 771. In United States v. Hopkins, 916 F.2d 207 (5th Cir. 1990), the defendants’ actions in disguising contributions were designed to evade the Federal Election Commission’s reporting requirements and constituted fraud on the agency under Section 371.

    The intent required for a conspiracy to defraud the government is that the defendant possessed the intent (a) to defraud, (b) to make false statements or representations to the government or its agencies in order to obtain property of the government, or that the defendant performed acts or made statements that he/she knew to be false, fraudulent or deceitful to a government agency, which disrupted the functions of the agency or of the government. It is sufficient for the government to prove that the defendant knew the statements were false or fraudulent when made. The government is not required to prove the statements ultimately resulted in any actual loss to the government of any property or funds, only that the defendant’s activities impeded or interfered with legitimate governmental functions. See United States v. Puerto, 730 F.2d 627 (11th Cir.), cert. denied, 469 U.S. 847 (1984); United States v. Tuohey, 867 F.2d 534 (9th Cir. 1989); United States v. Sprecher, 783 F. Supp. 133, 156 (S.D.N.Y. 1992)(þit is sufficient that the defendant engaged in acts that interfered with or obstructed a lawful governmental function by deceit, craft, trickery or by means that were dishonest”), modified on other grounds, 988 F.2d 318 (2d Cir. 1993).

    Except as otherwise expressly provided by any Act of Congress, an accessory after the fact shall be imprisoned not more than one-half the maximum term of imprisonment or (notwithstanding section 3571) fined not more than one-half the maximum fine prescribed for the punishment of the principal, or both; or if the principal is punishable by life imprisonment or death, the accessory shall be imprisoned not more than 15 years.

    House hears evidence VA cooked books on claims backlog

    Furthermore, the VA then “lost control” of the provisional ratings cases, which were pushed further to the back burner, where they were ignored. Some veterans might never have received final rating decisions if not for the IG investigation, according to Halliday.

    Miller showed internal VA emails from last year showing managers told employees that the method of dealing with the oldest cases might go against their professional values but that “there will be no negative consequences for you the employees.”

    The only negative effects would come from not meeting VA goals of reducing the backlog, according to excerpts from the emails.

    VA Gave Out Bonuses for Criminally Negligent Homicide

    May 19, 2014

    If reports are true, the VA is a hotbed of corruption which lets dozens or hundreds of veterans die waiting for help. It’s no less than criminally negligent homicide at the hands of self-serving bureaucrats.

    Two whistleblowers have said that many veterans were deliberately delayed or never seen at all. Veterans were kept on separate lists so DC wouldn’t find out about the delays. At risk were employee bonuses.

    The problems at Veterans Affairs might be systemic and they have been well-known for a long time. Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden knew in 2008.

    How many, if any, veterans deaths are the result of criminally negligent homicide is unclear and will remain that way because the DOJ is refusing to investigate at this point, but don’t worry Barack Obama and Eric Shinseki are “mad as hell”.

    According to a report issued by the VA last year,  22 soldiers a day kill themselves. Could their lives have been saved with prompt intervention?

    After what our military men and women have sacrificed for us, we have thanked them by giving them horrendous healthcare services. Don’t worry, we will all soon suffer the same fate under Obamacare. Look to the veterans for your future healthcare and weep. Obamacare will provide bonuses to those who let Grandma die.

    In some VA hospitals, our military healthcare officials appear to be waiting for our veterans to die and all our leaders can do is say they are mad as hell?

    Did you know that the VA has been shelling out hundreds of millions of dollars in financial settlements because of negligence? The settlements amounted to $845 million in the last decade alone.

    An investigation by the Dayton Daily News found 167 cases since 2001 in which the VA delayed treatment, delays which resulted in voluntary and court-ordered claims totaling $36.4 million.

    At least 23 people have died because of delayed care according to the VA.

    Our transparent government pretended that Robert Petzel, undersecretary for health care at the VA, was forced to resign. As it happens, he was scheduled to retire. It was another lie to give the impression that they were being tough. Even if it were a forced resignation, and the poor man had to settle back and live off his fat government pension, how is that an appropriate response to potential cases of criminally negligent homicide?

    Agency head Eric Shinseki and Barack Obama are “mad as Hell” but the DOJ has announced they are not looking into any of the claims, they are monitoring.

    Government workers should NOT be getting bonuses.  The government is offering incentives for people to lie and cheat.

    The U.S. Government Accountability Office in December 2012 released a review of the Dayton VA Medical center as well as VA hospitals in Montana, California and Washington, D.C. It found errors by schedulers at every hospital.

    “During our site visits, staff at some clinics told us they change medical appointment desired dates to show clinic wait times within VHA’s performance goals,” the report says.

    Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

    “This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the officials wrote.

    The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department took since 2009 to remedy the problems.

    An April 9 GAO report issued after a review of select VA centers across the country noted that approximately 2 million outpatient referrals were unresolved for more than 90 days in 2012.

    At one medical center, veterans waited 140 to 210 days. Four of 10 physical therapy referrals at another medical center took 108 to 152 days “with no apparent action taken to schedule an appointment for the veteran.”

    Ohio’s six VA medical centers had a combined 54 malpractice payouts related to deaths since 2001. The Dayton VA Medical Center had the most, though Cleveland’s two medical centers had 22 combined. One case settled in 2003 for $200,000 involved hospitals in both Dayton and Cleveland.

    The VA paid $91.2 million last year in financial settlements and awards in response to malpractice claims. A nationwide Cox Media Group investigation in November found that payouts peaked in 2012 and totaled $845 million over the past decade.

    U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said he expects the House this month to consider the VA Management Accountability Act, which would give Shinseki — who Boehner is not calling on to resign — authority to remove senior executives.

    “If you look at recent VA preventable deaths, patient safety incidents and backlog increases, department senior executives who presided over negligence and mismanagement are more likely to have received a bonus or glowing performance review than any sort of punishment,” says a description of the bill on the website of the House Veteran Affairs Committee.

    We give bonuses to the people who should be fired.

    Defrauding the government

    18 U.S.C. § 371—Conspiracy to Defraud the United States

    The general conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371, creates an offense “[i]f two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose. (emphasis added). See Project, Tenth Annual Survey of White Collar Crime, 32 Am. Crim. L. Rev. 137, 379-406 (1995)(generally discussing § 371).

    The operative language is the so-called “defraud clause,” that prohibits conspiracies to defraud the United States. This clause creates a separate offense from the “offense clause” in Section 371. Both offenses require the traditional elements of Section 371 conspiracy, including an illegal agreement, criminal intent, and proof of an overt act.

    Although this language is very broad, cases rely heavily on the definition of “defraud” provided by the Supreme Court in two early cases, Hass v. Henkel, 216 U.S. 462 (1910), and Hammerschmidt v. United States, 265 U.S. 182 (1924). In Hass the Court stated:

    The statute is broad enough in its terms to include any conspiracy for the purpose of impairing, obstructing or defeating the lawful function of any department of government . . . (A)ny conspiracy which is calculated to obstruct or impair its efficiency and destroy the value of its operation and reports as fair, impartial and reasonably accurate, would be to defraud the United States by depriving it of its lawful right and duty of promulgating or diffusing the information so officially acquired in the way and at the time required by law or departmental regulation.

    Hass, 216 U.S. at 479-480. In Hammerschmidt, Chief Justice Taft, defined “defraud” as follows:

    To conspire to defraud the United States means primarily to cheat the Government out of property or money, but it also means to interfere with or obstruct one of its lawful governmental functions by deceit, craft or trickery, or at least by means that are dishonest. It is not necessary that the Government shall be subjected to property or pecuniary loss by the fraud, but only that its legitimate official action and purpose shall be defeated by misrepresentation, chicane or the overreaching of those charged with carrying out the governmental intention.

    Hammerschmidt, 265 U.S. at 188.

    The general purpose of this part of the statute is to protect governmental functions from frustration and distortion through deceptive practices. Section 371 reaches “any conspiracy for the purpose of impairing, obstructing or defeating the lawful function of any department of Government.” Tanner v. United States, 483 U.S. 107, 128 (1987); see Dennis v. United States, 384 U.S. 855 (1966). The “defraud part of section 371 criminalizes any willful impairment of a legitimate function of government, whether or not the improper acts or objective are criminal under another statute.” United States v. Tuohey, 867 F.2d 534, 537 (9th Cir. 1989).

    The word “defraud” in Section 371 not only reaches financial or property loss through use of a scheme or artifice to defraud but also is designed and intended to protect the integrity of the United States and its agencies, programs and policies. United States v. Burgin, 621 F.2d 1352, 1356 (5th Cir.), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 1015 (1980); see United States v. Herron, 825 F.2d 50, 57-58 (5th Cir.); United States v. Winkle, 587 F.2d 705, 708 (5th Cir. 1979), cert. denied, 444 U.S. 827 (1979). Thus, proof that the United States has been defrauded under this statute does not require any showing of monetary or proprietary loss. United States v. Conover, 772 F.2d 765 (11th Cir. 1985), aff’d, sub. nom. Tanner v. United States, 483 U.S. 107 (1987); United States v. Del Toro, 513 F.2d 656 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 423 U.S. 826 (1975); United States v. Jacobs, 475 F.2d 270 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, 414 U.S. 821 (1973).

    Thus, if the defendant and others have engaged in dishonest practices in connection with a program administered by an agency of the Government, it constitutes a fraud on the United States under Section 371. United States v. Gallup, 812 F.2d 1271, 1276 (10th Cir. 1987); Conover, 772 F.2d at 771. In United States v. Hopkins, 916 F.2d 207 (5th Cir. 1990), the defendants’ actions in disguising contributions were designed to evade the Federal Election Commission’s reporting requirements and constituted fraud on the agency under Section 371.

    The intent required for a conspiracy to defraud the government is that the defendant possessed the intent (a) to defraud, (b) to make false statements or representations to the government or its agencies in order to obtain property of the government, or that the defendant performed acts or made statements that he/she knew to be false, fraudulent or deceitful to a government agency, which disrupted the functions of the agency or of the government. It is sufficient for the government to prove that the defendant knew the statements were false or fraudulent when made. The government is not required to prove the statements ultimately resulted in any actual loss to the government of any property or funds, only that the defendant’s activities impeded or interfered with legitimate governmental functions. See United States v. Puerto, 730 F.2d 627 (11th Cir.), cert. denied, 469 U.S. 847 (1984); United States v. Tuohey, 867 F.2d 534 (9th Cir. 1989); United States v. Sprecher, 783 F. Supp. 133, 156 (S.D.N.Y. 1992)(þit is sufficient that the defendant engaged in acts that interfered with or obstructed a lawful governmental function by deceit, craft, trickery or by means that were dishonest”), modified on other grounds, 988 F.2d 318 (2d Cir. 1993).

    In United States v. Madeoy, 912 F.2d 1486 (D.C. Cir. 1990), cert. denied, 498 U.S. 1105 (1991), the defendants were convicted of conspiracy to defraud the government and other offenses in connection with a scheme to fraudulently obtain loan commitments from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or Veterans Administration (VA). The court held that the district court had properly instructed the jury that:

    the Government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt the existence of a scheme or artifice to defraud, with the objective either of defrauding the FHA or the VA of their lawful right to conduct their business and affairs free from deceit, fraud or misrepresentation, or of obtaining money and property from the FHA by means of false and fraudulent representations and promises which the defendant knew to be false.

    18 U.S. Code § 3 – Accessory after the fact

    accessory after the fact Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact.

    Except as otherwise expressly provided by any Act of Congress, an accessory after the fact shall be imprisoned not more than one-half the maximum term of imprisonment or (notwithstanding section3571 fined not more than one-half the maximum fine prescribed for the punishment of the principal, or both; or if the principal is punishable by life imprisonment or death, the accessory shall be imprisoned not more than 15 years.

    LET YOUR CONSCIENCE BE YOUR GUIDE, Please take time from your bountiful, joyous two week (as posted) Christmas Vacation WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, to REMEMBER AND PRAY FOR, the up to seven (7) million American people that are expected to lose their health care coverage, doctors, hospitals AND MEDICAL TREATMENT.

    EVERY ONE OF THOSE CONSEQUENCES REPRESENTS A BROKEN WHITE HOUSE PROMISE.

    My heart and prayers go out to the those families suffering through, THEIR CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS, WITH the WORRY OF delays and uncertainty for lifesaving medical treatment, THAT WILL NOT BE COVERED under the Affordable Care Act

    13 Nov 2013 President Obama says he’s ‘SORRY’ nearly 7 million Americans people are expected to lose the health care insurance plans President Obama said they could keep. So far, five million have lost their insurance.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/12/zeke_emanuel_no_obama_didnt_say_you_could_keep_your_doctor.html

    Everyone in America who isn’t brain dead – or lying – knows exactly what the president meant when he said we could keep our doctor if we wanted to. And I suspect even those who are brain dead know why he said it; in tandem with the promise we could keep our insurance plans, the promise that we could keep our family doctor was necessary for the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Without those two promises, it would have been open season on the bill and even many Democrats would have run for cover.

    Crafted with lies. Voted on with lies. Sold with lies. And implemented with lies.

    Why should Emanuel’s lies surprise us? Thomas Lifson adds: I think Emanuel is

    doing something much worse than lying. HE IS INSULTING THOSE WHO ARE EXPERIENCING (OR WORRYING ABOUT) LOSS OF ACCESS TO THEIR EXISTING DOCTORS AND MEDICAL FACILITIES.

    This is typical of a large faction of “high powered” intellectuals, for whom words trump reality. Clever verbal gymnastics are all that is needed to triumph when adversity is encountered. The real world doesn’t operate this way, but contemporary academia does.

    Insurers Claim Health Website Is Still Flawed
    By ROBERT PEAR and REED ABELSON
    Published: December 1, 2013

    significant problems remain with back end system that delivers consumer information to insurers; insurance companies warn that they have received flawed data, or no data whatsoever, for a large number of applicants whose coverage is slated to begin in January.MORE »

    “Until the enrollment process is working from end to end, many consumers will not be able to enroll in coverage,” said Karen M. Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans, a trade group.

    The issues are vexing and complex.

    Some insurers say they have been deluged with phone calls from people who believe they have signed up for a particular health plan, only to find that the company has no record of the enrollment.

    Others say information they received about new enrollees was inaccurate or incomplete,
    so they had to track down additional data — a laborious task that will not be feasible if data is missing for tens of thousands of consumers.

    In still other cases, insurers said, they have not been told how much of a customer’s premium will be subsidized by the government, so they do not know how much to charge the policyholder.

  • Obama’s Obamacare Fumble?

    Nov. 14, 2013 a football analogy? or apology?
    Football ? Fumble? To drop a ball that is in play?

    MOST GAMES HAVE RULES?

    THE OBAMACARE GAME HAS NO DECIPHERABLE RULES.

    DECIPHERABLE by definition make out what something says to succeed in establishing what a word or piece of writing says, when it is difficult or almost impossible to read, workout the meaning of something, to study something that is written in code or in an unknown form of writing until it can be understood and read normally

    AN ANALOGY OF NFL DECIPHERABLE RULES TO OBAMACARE?

    Rule 8 Forward Pass, Backward Pass, Fumble – NFL.com
    static.nfl.com/static/…/11_Rule8_ForwardPass_BackPass_Fumble.pdf‎

    Note: A BALL THAT IS INTENTIONALLY FUMBLED AND GOES FORWARD is a forward pass.

    A ball that is … ANY OTHER FORWARD PASS BY EITHER TEAM IS ILLEGAL AND IS A FOUL by the passing team, including: ….. A quarterback drops back into his end zone.

    Note: If a player pretends to fumble and causes the ball to go forward, it is a …. A DROP KICK IS A KICK BY A KICKER WHO DROPS THE BALL AND KICKS IT as, or immediately …

    Rule 8 Forward Pass, Backward Pass, Fumble

    Section 1 Forward Pass
    DEFINITION
    Article 1 Definition
    It is a forward pass if:
    (a) the ball initially moves forward (to a point nearer the opponent’s goal line) after leaving the passer’s
    hand(s); or
    (b) the ball first strikes the ground, a player, an official, or anything else at a point that is nearer the
    opponent’s goal line than the point at which the ball leaves the passer’s hand(s).

    Note: A BALL THAT IS INTENTIONALLY FUMBLED and goes
    forward is a forward pass.

    A BALL THAT IS INTENTIONALLY MUFFED, AND GOES FORWARD OR BACKWARD, IS A BATTED BALL (12-1-8).
    The direction taken by A FUMBLED or muffed ball

    DOES NOT AFFECT THE APPLICATION OF THE RULES SPECIFIC TO SUCH ACTS, UNLESS IT IS RULED THAT THEY ARE INTENTIONAL.

    When a player is IN CONTROL of the ball and attempting to pass it forward, any intentional forward movement of his hand starts a forward pass.

    (a) If the passer is attempting to throw a forward pass, BUT CONTACT BY AN OPPONENT MATERIALLY AFFECTS HIM, causing the ball to go backward, it is a forward pass, regardless of where the ball strikes the ground, a player, an official, or anything else

    (b) If, AFTER AN INTENTIONAL FORWARD movement of his hand, the PASSER LOSES POSSESSION OF THE BALL AS HE IS ATTEMPTING TO TUCK IT BACK TOWARD HIS BODY, it is a forward pass.

    IF THE PLAYER LOSES POSSESSION AFTER HE HAS TUCKED THE BALL INTO HIS BODY,

    IT IS A FUMBLE.

    (C) IF THE PASSER LOSES POSSESSION OF THE BALL WHILE ATTEMPTING TO RECOCK HIS ARM,

    IT IS A FUMBLE.

    LEGAL FORWARD PASS
    Article 2 Legal Forward Pass.
    THE OFFENSIVE TEAM may make one forward pass from behind the line during each down. If the ball, whether IN PLAYER POSSESSION OR LOOSE, crosses the line of scrimmage,

    A FORWARD PASS IS NOT PERMISSIBLE, regardless of whether the ball returns behind the line of scrimmage before the pass is thrown.

    ITEM 1: ILLEGAL PASSES.
    ANY OTHER FORWARD PASS BY EITHER TEAM IS ILLEGAL AND IS A FOUL BY THE PASSING TEAM,
    including:
    (a) A forward pass thrown when the passer IS BEYOND the line of SCRIMMAGE.
    ——————————————————————————————————-

    The line of SCRIMMAGE by definition a rough or confused struggle
    ——————————————————————————————————

    Note: It is a forward pass from beyond the line of scrimmage if the passer’s entire body and the ball are beyond the line of scrimmage when the ball is released, whether the passer is airborne or touching the ground.

    THE PENALTY FOR A FORWARD PASS thrown from beyond the line IS ENFORCED FROM THE SPOT where the ball is RELEASED.

    (b) A second forward pass thrown from behind the line of scrimmage.

    (c) A forward pass thrown after the ball has crossed the
    line of scrimmage and has returned behind it.

    (d) A forward pass thrown after there has been a change
    of possession.

    ITEM 2: INTERCEPTED ILLEGAL PASS.
    IF AN ILLEGAL PASS IS CAUGHT OR INTERCEPTED, the ball may be advanced and
    the penalty declined.

    PENALTIES:
    (a) For a forward pass from beyond the line: Loss of down and five yards from the spot of the
    pass. See 14-8-2. See S.N. 3 below.

    (b) For a second forward pass from behind the line, or for a forward pass that was thrown after
    the ball returned behind the line: Loss of five yards.

    (c) FOR A FORWARD PASS THAT IS THROWN by Team B, or for a forward pass that is thrown by Team A after a change of possession: Loss of five yards from the spot of the pass.

    SUPPLEMENTAL NOTES
    (1) ELIGIBILITY, pass interference, and intentional grounding rules apply when a forward pass is thrown from behind the line, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PASS IS AN ILLEGAL FORWARD PASS.

    ELIGIBILITY, PASS INTERFERENCE,
    AND INTENTIONAL GROUNDING RULES DO NOT APPLY IF A
    FORWARD PASS IS THROWN
    (a) from beyond the line,
    (b) on a Free Kick play,
    (c) on a Fair Catch kick play, or
    (d) after a change of possession.

    (2) ROUGHING THE PASSER RULES APPLY ON ALL PASSES
    (LEGAL OR ILLEGAL) THROWN FROM BEHIND THE LINE of
    scrimmage (12-2-13). If a pass is thrown FROM BEYOND the line of scrimmage,

    UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS MAY APPLY FOR ACTION AGAINST THE PASSER

    OBAMACARE FINES TO BE SEIZED FROM BANK ACCOUNTS?

    MAN WHO ATTEMPTED TO SIGN UP CLAIMS HE WAS THREATENED WITH DRIVERS LICENSE BEING REVOKED, FEDERAL TAX LIEN ON HOME
    Paul Joseph Watson
    Infowars.com
    October 2, 2013
    A man who attempted to sign up for Obamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his drivers license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.
    If true, the implementation of Obamacare is going to be a whole lot more draconian than Americans have been led to believe.
    Will Sheehan claims that when he tried to sign up for Obamacare and THEN REGISTER TO OPT OUT, he received an ominous warning. Sheehan’s full Facebook post reads;
    “I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.
    I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”
    Sheehan went on to point out that the site makes you input all your personal information before giving you an indication of the costs, meaning a database of the “uninsured” is being built. He added that he could not afford to pay the premium so would have to break the law and pay the fine, leaving him with no health care coverage.
    The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law.
    “There’s no criminal sanctions for not paying this, and there’s no ability to levy a bank account or do seizures,” then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman said in April 2010.
    In addition, Americans who refuse to pay for mandatory health insurance “shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution,” according to the law itself.
    Section 1501(g)(2) of the Affordable Care Act also states that the IRS cannot “file notice of lien with respect to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section.”
    Either Sheehan’s claim that he received this notice is a lie, or the feds have been dishonest with the American people all along, and the revolt against Obamacare is about to take “don’t tread on me” to a whole new level.

    Obamacare 101: What to know if you opt out of buying health insurance

    The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires that individuals buy health insurance. If you don’t want to buy insurance, you will have to pay a penalty – unless you qualify for an exemption from the mandate.
    The insurance “exchanges” set up under the Affordable Care Act, where people can shop online for health insurance, went live on Oct. 1, and an estimated 48 million uninsured Americans can use them to try to find an affordable plan. The 2010 Obamacare law requires that people have health insurance, or that they pay a fee starting next year if they choose to opt out.

    Here are the ins and outs of forgoing health insurance.
    If you don’t have health insurance, and aren’t sure if you want to purchase a plan, how long do you have to decide?
    You can sign up for health coverage on an exchange anytime between now and March 1, 2014. Your coverage would begin Jan. 1, 2014, at the earliest. If you do not enroll in that window, you will not be able to get health coverage through the insurance exchange marketplace until the next annual enrollment period unless there are extenuating circumstances.
    RECOMMENDED: Obamacare facts: How will the law affect you?
    How much are the penalties for not buying a health plan?
    The penalties are not very high to begin with. In 2014, the fine to remain uninsured is $95 per person (up to a family maximum of $285, or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater).
    But the penalty will increase more than sevenfold in the next two years, with the fine running as much as $695 per person by 2016. The family maximum would be as high as $2,085 (or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater).

    What kind of insurance policy prevents someone from having to pay the penalty?
    In short, any plan that qualifies as “minimum essential coverage.” This includes plans offered on the marketplace exchange, a plan provided by your employer, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), TRICARE, Veterans Healthcare programs, Peace Corps Volunteer plans, and possibly others. For a full list with more details, refer to Healthcare.gov.
    What plans don’t qualify?
    You’d have to pay the fee if you have only vision or dental coverage or only workers’ compensation, coverage only for specific health conditions, or a plan that offers only discounts on medical services.
    Would it be cheaper to buy an insurance plan, and elect to not use it, rather than pay the fee?
    It depends, but as of now it is probably cheaper to pay the fine, provided you do not use any health-care services. You can calculate how much your health insurance premium would cost by using the Kaiser Family Foundation Subsidy Calculator, and then you can compare the cost to the penalty you would be assessed for having no insurance. The subsidy calculator takes into account your region, household income, employer coverage, number of family members, and tobacco use.
    Why is there a penalty?
    The penalty is meant to offset the costs of urgent medical care for individuals who do not have health insurance, according to Healthcare.gov. The website also warns that people without health coverage will have to pay the entire costs of all their medical care.
    How does someone apply for an exemption from health insurance so that they don’t have to pay the penalty?
    You can claim exemptions on your 2014 federal tax return, or you can apply for exemptions on the Health Insurance Marketplace exchanges. (The application is not currently available). Healthcare.gov will provide up-to-date information about how to apply for an exemption.
    Who is eligible for such exemptions?
    You can be exempted from the requirement to buy health insurance – and hence, from the penalty – if you meet one of the following requirements:
    •You are uninsured for less than three months of the year.
    •You live illegally in the United States.
    •You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting disposition.
    •You’re a member of a recognized Indian tribe.
    •Your income is officially deemed too low.
    •The lowest-priced converge would cost more than 8 percent of your household income.
    •You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare.
    •You’re a member of a recognized health-sharing ministry. (Note: Christian Scientists do not currently qualify for the exemption.)
    Healthcare.gov also provides a list of hardship exemptions that qualify an individual for exemption.
    This flow chart from the Kaiser Family Foundation might help you determine if you need to buy health insurance.
    Massachusetts has granted a religious exemption to its requirement to buy health insurance. Is this exemption still valid?
    No. The new federal requirement overrides state provisions, which means that any exemptions not listed under the Affordable Care Act are not included.
    If you are not exempt, how will the penalty be assessed?
    You will be required to provide information regarding health insurance when you file your 2014 federal income taxes. For those who elect not to buy health coverage, the penalty will probably be assessed on the form or withdrawn from your tax refund.

  • The Affordable Boat Act

    THIS IS HILARIOUS, you will laugh, until the truth of it makes you throw up.

    ————————————————————-

    “THE AFFORDABLE BOAT ACT”

    The U.S. government has just passed a new law called: “THE AFFORDABLE BOAT ACT” declaring that every citizen MUST PURCHASE A NEW BOAT, BY APRIL 2014.

    THESE “AFFORDABLE” BOATS WILL COST AN AVERAGE OF $54,000-$155,000 EACH.

    This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, licensing and registration fees, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs.

    This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase boats.

    THIS NEW LAWS ENSURES THAT EVERY AMERICAN CAN NOW HAVE A “AFFORDABLE” BOAT of their own,

    because everyone is “ENTITLED” to a new boat. If you purchase your boat before the end of the year, you will receive 4 “free” life jackets; not including monthly usage fees.

    IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE PURCHASES AN AFFORDABLE BOAT, THE COSTS OF OWNING A BOAT WILL INCREASE ON AVERAGE OF 250-400% PER YEAR.

    This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don’t want or can’t afford to maintain.

    But to be fair, people who can’t afford to maintain their boat WILL BE REGULARLY FINED and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents boats to party on until they turn 27;
    THEN THEY MUST PURCHASE THEIR OWN BOAT.

    IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A BOAT, YOU CAN KEEP YOURS (JUST KIDDING; NO YOU CAN’T).

    IF YOU DON’T WANT OR DON’T NEED A BOAT, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO BUY ONE ANYHOW.

    IF YOU REFUSE TO BUY ONE OR CAN’T AFFORD ONE, YOU WILL BE REGULARLY FINED $800 UNTIL YOU PURCHASE ONE OR FACE IMPRISONMENT.

    FAILURE TO USE THE BOAT WILL ALSO RESULT IN FINES. People living in the desert; ghettos; inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat.

    A GOVERNMENT REVIEW BOARD (THAT DOESN’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PORT, STARBOARD OR STERN OF A BOAT)

    WILL DECIDE EVERYTHING, INCLUDING; WHEN, WHERE, HOW OFTEN AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES YOU CAN USE YOUR BOAT ALONG WITH HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN RIDE YOUR BOAT AND DETERMINE

    IF ONE IS TOO OLD OR HEALTHY ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO USE THEIR BOAT. THEY WILL ALSO DECIDE IF YOUR BOAT HAS OUT LIVED ITS USEFULNESS OR IF YOU MUST PURCHASE SPECIFIC ACCESSORIES,(LIKE A $500 COMPASS) OR A NEWER AND MORE EXPENSIVE BOAT.

    Those that can afford yachts will be required to do so…it’s only fair. The government will also decide the name for each boat.

    FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN FINES AND POSSIBLE IMPRISONMENT.

    GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS NEW LAW.

    IF THEY WANT A BOAT, THEY AND THEIR FAMILIES CAN OBTAIN BOATS FREE

    AT THE EXPENSE OF TAX PAYERS.

    UNIONS, BANKERS AND MEGA COMPANIES WITH LARGE POLITICAL AFFILIATIONS ($$$) ARE ALSO EXEMPT.

    THE BOTTOM LINE
    If the government can FORCE you to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat….or ANYTHING else.. Yea…it’s that stupid…

  • Obamacare Hoodwink?
