WASHINGTON (AP) — The government’s health insurance website is quietly sending consumers’ personal data to private companies that specialize in advertising and analyzing Internet data for performance and marketing, The Associated Press has learned.
The scope of what is disclosed or how it might be used was not immediately clear, but it can include age, income, ZIP code, whether a person smokes, and if a person is pregnant. It can include a computer’s Internet address, which can identify a person’s name or address when combined with other information collected by sophisticated online marketing or advertising firms.
Ann Barnhardt of the former Barnhardt Capital Management joins Finance & Liberty for a MUST LISTEN interview.
Barnhardt unleashes an epic rant on the usurpation of the United States by the Obama Regime, stating that there is no longer any rule of law or constitution in America.
Barnhardt, who shut down her brokerage in the wake of the MFGlobal hypothecation of customer assets, and advised SD readers that If You Still Trade These Markets, You’re Either Stupid Or On Drugs, makes the case that the United States of America now CEASES TO EXIST in the aftermath of the usurpation of our Constitutional Republic by the Obama Regime.
Barnhardt’s full interview is below:
A SHOCKING video clip has just emerged of MIT economics professor, and the architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, admitting that the Obamacare legislation was intentionally complex and misleading in order to pass Congress and elicit limited outrage from the “stupid” American public.
Full MUST WATCH clip of Obamacare architect is below:
The moment you create a national system of healthcare is the moment everybody suddenly has this so-called “health responsibility” to everyone else. Which is fascistic and the opposite of freedom.
Naturally, now that we have Obamacare all sorts of invasive things are going to be justified for the “greater good.”
As Bloomberg notes in the important article below, you may soon be getting calls from your doctor about your personal habits thanks to credit card data mining.
If people want to opt-in to such a system fine, but if this is imposed upon the population involuntarily, there is only one word to describe it: Tyranny.
We now have some details on the average premium increase for non-Obamacare health plans following the implementation of the law, and the results are not pretty. According to a cost report from eHealthInsurance, premiums have increased by between 39%-56%.
While we are well aware of the financial disaster Obamacare represents for those not participating, what about those who are in (or at least think they are in) the program?
Let’s look at the story of one Las Vegas man who paid his Obamacare premiums since November yet remains uncovered and now has a $407,000 hospital bill nobody is covering.
It appears that Florida restaurant chain Gator’s Dockside has found a unique way to cope with the expected $1/2 million in costs that compliance with the ACA will cost their business.
Rather than slash their full-time workforce, the chain has decided to pass the ACA tax onto customers directly via a 1% ACA surcharge on all bills.
The famous Hitler rant is back, as this time Hitler learns that weeks after going live, the Obamacare Exchange website is still a soup sandwich.
In this MUST LISTEN interview, Dr. Dave Janda joins the SGTReport to WAKE UP THE MASSES about Obamacare which Dave says is, “a New World Order BOMB designed to destroy our healthcare system.”
An orthopedic surgeon and the host of ‘Operation Freedom’, Dave says, “I’ve read Obamacare several times, and I’m not even sure that Barack Obama has read Obamacare based on the things that come out of his mouth because he is so factually incorrect about the things he says.”
This conversation quickly becomes a CALL TO ACTION for every listener as Dave explains the only way to fix Obamacare: “There’s ONE solution to Obamacare and this is it, Obamacare has to be IMMEDIATELY repealed. Obamacare is about the ultimate control of the people.”
Rand Paul has issued an impassioned video address demanding that our current surveillance state be returned to the land of the free:
“We were once outraged and dismayed and spurred to resist when British soldiers came knocking at our door with illegitimate warrants seeking taxes on our papers. Today, your government responds that there is no expectation of privacy once you consign your records to a third party...
Your government argues that the Fourth Amendment applies not at all to your bank records, your Visa bill, your internet searches or purchases or emails. If not resistance, shouldn’t there at least be outrage?
Are we so afraid of terrorists that we are willing to give up the very freedoms that separate us from them?
Rand Paul’s full MUST WATCH address on the NSA USA is below:
Can the U.S. government afford to pay for the health care of 38 million more people? As you will see below, Obamacare is going to be the biggest expansion of the welfare state in U.S. history. It is being projected that a decade from now 17 million Americans will be receiving Obamacare subsidies and an additional 21 million Americans will have been added to the Medicaid rolls. At a time when we are already running trillion dollar deficits, is this really something that the government should be taking on? In addition, it is being projected that bringing millions upon millions of new people into the Medicaid program will also cause enrollment in many other federal welfare programs such as food stamps to surge. Right now, the percentage of Americans that are financially dependent on the U.S. government is already at an all-time high, and Obamacare is going to cause the level of government dependence to go much, much higher. How much weight can the “safety net” actually carry before it breaks entirely?
If you set out to design a corrupt, inefficient, wasteful, unfair, deranged and unreformable system, you would arrive at U.S. healthcare/ObamaCare.
The income levels that divide receiving a Federal subsidy from not receiving a subsidy are begging to be gamed. If $62,000 is the line in the sand that qualifies your household for a hefty subsidy on health insurance, the incentives to adjust earnings to fall just below $62,000 (or whatever the number is for the locale and household size) are immense.
People respond to the incentives and disincentives they are presented with, perverse or otherwise. The lobbyists, toadies and apparatchiks who wrote and passed ObamaCare could not have stuffed the bill with more perverse incentives if they had set out with that as their primary goal.
The neutron bomb has gone off, unseen by politicos and the Elites who wrote the bill. It is already undercutting fulltime employment, and it will soon add momentum to the free-fall erosion of small business growth and employment.
The strip malls and office parks will still be standing; there just won’t be many employees in them.
The more Americans learn about Obamacare, the less they like it. They were promised that under Obamacare they would be able to keep their current health insurance plans, that health insurance premiums would be lower, and that millions more Americans would be able to get coverage. But none of those promises are turning out to be true. Right now, millions of Americans are receiving cancellation notices from their health insurance companies – including many Americans that are in a life or death battle with cancer. By the end of next year, it is being projected that up to 100 million more Americans could have their health insurance policies canceled. Meanwhile, large numbers of Americans are discovering that their “new plans” are going to cost them two, three, four or even five times as much as their old plans cost them. You are about to see some shocking examples of this.
The following are 10 Obamacare horror stories that are almost too crazy to believe…
After successfully signing up for Obamacare via the Washington exchange, Jessica Sanford wrote a letter to President Obama expressing her glee at finally being able to obtain affordable health insurance coverage. The President proudly read Ms. Sanford’s letter during an Oct 21st speech touting the success of the ACA.
Fast forward 1 month, and Ms. Sanford has discovered that she has been repriced out of Obamacare, as the latest glitch in the Obamacare system inaccurately calculated her rates and premiums.
So she’s now uninsured again….
Apparently Bro-surance and Obamacare for Sluts failed to entice a sufficient quota of healthy 20-somethings needed to offset the cost of those with pre-existing conditions.
According to the folks from DoYouGotInsurance?, easy access to birth control equals easy access to heartthrobs like Ryan Gosling.
Did you know that Obamacare contains huge incentives that will actually motivate people to try to reduce their incomes? It’s true. Under Obamacare, making less money can pay off big time. As you will see below, reducing your income by just $1,000 could get you an Obamacare subsidy worth over $14,000. Who wouldn’t want to make that trade? And guess what? Obamacare also makes divorce highly profitable for millions of American couples. In fact, there are some U.S. couples that are already considering divorce due to the provisions contained in the new health care law. Of course those couples still plan to live together – they just want to get divorced so that they can save thousands of dollars on their health care expenses. Yes, I know that sounds absolutely crazy. But this is actually happening. The truth is that Obamacare is turning out to be a much larger disaster than anyone anticipated, and it seems like new “surprises” just keep popping up with each passing day.
In this interview with Elijah Johnson, Ann Barnhardt of the former Barnhardt Capital launches into another epic rant regarding fraud in the US banking sector and the fascists who have taken over the US from within- and overthrown our constitutional republic.
Barnhardt’s latest on Obamacare, the markets, and the future of freedom in the “Land of the Free” is below:
According to Senator Rand Paul, who spoke at a luncheon in Charleston, South Carolina on Monday, November 11, the President of the United States himself wrote the regulation to cancel the health insurance of MILLIONS of Americans…3 months after Obamacare was passed!
