Speaking Out For You
It’s Too Late For Us... But You Can Still Save Yourself

Only five million people have lost their health care so far because of ObamaCare. Unfortunately, our workers are included in this. This staggering number is actually very low compared to what is coming. The vast number of citizens will not be affected until next year. With political manipulation and to divide and conquer, Obama and his henchmen have postponed having it applied to corporations, unions, government, teachers, police, firefighters and others until after the national elections next year (2014).

It’s evident to those that are bilked now that ObamaCare is fraught with lies, deception and malice. Most of you don’t know how bad it is. You’ll know next year when the “bell tolls for thee.” You still have time to save yourself, though it’s too late for us.

“... Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me (Martin Niemöller, Nazi Germany).” Well, I’m speaking out for you.

You must defeat these “LIZARDS” next year in the national elections. LIZARDS (Liberal Inane Zombies and Radicalized Democrats).

Those calling for  Obama’s resignation have not thought it through. Do they want Biden to become president? What’s hungered for is the resignation of the matched set. Of course they won’t resign. Their egos can’t contemplate such an honorable deed.  Obama will be gone in 2016. Until then, you must minimize the damage.

There is no lobby to stand up for the middle-class American citizen. You must stand up for yourself starting now. I promise all the ink in my barrel and all the gigabytes in my bandwidth to fight this atrocity for you.

Yes, I’m fighting mad. It’s not about the moronic website. For those that disagree with me, don’t take it out on my employees — take it out on me. My name is Horace Corbin, Publisher.

Is Our Healthcare Plan Substandard?

We’ve been asked to explain why we lost our healthcare. The drift of things: Our employees determine the features of their health care plan knowing that the cost comes out of their end of the year profit sharing (which they work hard for and deserve). No one here is of child-bearing age, so they don’t choose to buy maternity leave or pediatric care. There are other items. Obamacare requires them to buy extra things that they don’t need or want. So our group plan is cancelled. They are left with Obama Quotes for each individual. The cost is much higher and unaffordable. It appears they will also be taxed on it if the company helps. Where is that money going? And where is that money to come from?
