IS IT TRUE we open today’s column by wishing each and every one of our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year?…we also wish our readership and the world at large a Happy Hannakah, Happy Kwanza, and a personal winter greeting of whatever each and every person celebrates a good wish for their own personal holiday?…we even offer the non-believers among us a hearty Heathen’s Greetings?…we prefer to be as politically incorrect as possible by calling each and every holiday by name and wishing all of our readers a great day on each of them?
IS IT TRUE we are watching with careful consideration the Republicans who are expressing a formal interest in the Indiana House of Representatives seat being vacated by Susanne Crouch to accept the State Auditor’s role in the Pence Administration?…there are some characteristics that the CCO would like to see in the next representative and among those traits are honesty, a life of not being adulterated by politics, and most importantly the ability to engage in cognizant thought processes that stand for something?…what we do not want to see is a person that is another tired old retread that has not earned an honest dollar from private enterprise in recent history?…we are sure there are several tired old political patronage types who will lobby for this appointment but we encourage the powers in charge of this decision to avoid lifetime politicians like the plague?…that actually goes for all political offices in 2014?
IS IT TRUE the Obama administration has now issued a formal, public document clarifying the following as its official positions:
1) That being subjected to the disruptive and costly effects of Obamacare constitutes suffering a “hardship.”
2) That an Obamacare-imposed hardship is sufficient grounds for claiming an exemption from Obamacare.
3) That individuals who suffer the hardship of losing their previous, “substandard” insurance, will be granted relief by being allowed to purchase replacement insurance that is “substandard.”
IS IT TRUE these implicit admissions are stunning, to say the least?…given that this is part of the administration’s larger effort to suppress the rising tide of negative Obamacare stories simply makes the admissions even more flabbergasting?…the administration has now reached the point where its defense of its signature, revolutionary health-reform law is basically: “We’re replacing your substandard coverage with our substandard coverage?”…that just yesterday it was decided to extend the time that people can sign up that has been the target that moved 3 times to Christmas Eve?
IS IT TRUE we above all wish safety and happiness for our readers on this wonderful day and will come back swinging tomorrow?…the CCO says Merry Christmas to all?
