California Scheming... On a Cold Winter's Day


"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
-- Albert Einstein
.
I find it fitting that on the home page for Covered California they feature a child holding her hands over her Father's eyes.  Maybe he doesn't want to see what happens next with Socialized Health Care either?
.
Yes, I'm a bit late to the party, but now that I've catching up on things that have been bugging me for a while, it's time to pull the cork from the pig.  
..
And regarding ObamaCare's cork once that thing's pulled, it ain't going back in...
.
The folks implementing the Health Care Exchange in California have done what Big Government lackies do best...  They've wasted a LOT of "other people's" money.  
 .
On what?  Well, let's see what they've been spending the money on...  
.
A Barack Obama Impersonator:
.

.

A Richard Simmons Dance Party Competition: 
.


.
The above segments represent only a small portion of the 6-Hour LIVE streaming Covered California 'Brain-Wash-athon' to encourage young (and stupid) Californians to sign up on the state's health exchange.
.
While the 'performers' contributed their time; production, distribution, and other expenses for this embarassing program ran up a tab of $1.37 MILLION - funded by...  The nice folks of California.
.
Personally, I'd pay $20 to NEVER have to watch either video again.  Perhaps we should TWEET this to the Left Coast as a fundraising idea for future Infommercials?  
.
"Send us $20 and we'll block your computer's IP Address...  FOREVER!" 
.
Following the event, I found the following online:  According to Cal Watchdog, Covered California will probably face a $78 million shortfall in the next year; its 2012–13 budget included $74 million for advertising and marketing. 
.
Bottom Line:  Covered California is projected to LOSE $78 MILLION while spending $74 MILLION on quality programming as exhibited by those snippets above.  So you lose $4 MILLION as a result of your advertising budget of $74 MILLION?  Wow, Blue States must be clamoring to get in on this action.
.
This leaves a question for the folks in California, how will THEY get more more money by signing up more people than they have already - especially since the people running the system are looking to RICHARD SIMMONS to motivate kids to sign?
.
Oops, why did I have to ask the question???
..

 
.
The question was answered this morning, February 16, 2014, via a dispatch run in the "Daily Democrat" entitled, simply enough: 
.
Calif. bill would insure people in US illegally
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Immigrants living in the country illegally would be able to buy health insurance through the state of California under a bill introduced by a state senator.
.Only U.S. citizens can buy policies under the Affordable Care Act through health exchanges such as Covered California.
.
."Excluding people from access to care hurts the overall health of our communities, and does not reflect California values," Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, said Friday at a press conference at a Los Angeles community health center.
.
....
.
.About 2 million immigrants are living in California without legal permission, the most of any state.
.
.Imelda Plascencia moved to the U.S. from Mexico when she was 5. Plascencia, who described herself as being in the country illegally, suffers from gallstones and has waited in emergency rooms for treatment.
.
."My health has been declining," the 28-year-old said at the news conference.
.
.Immigrant advocates welcomed the bill.
.
."If people are given the opportunity to pay for affordable health care, they will," Joseph Villela, director of policy and advocacy for the Coalition for Humane Immigration of Los Angeles, told the Daily News of Los Angeles. "It's a long shot, but it is the first official bill that will seek to promote health care for all."
.
.
And thus it begins, the expansion of ObamaCare even PRIOR TO the complete implementation of ObamaCare.
 .
Gee, who saw THAT coming?
.
That's a rhetorical question, you don't have to answer it.  
.
Oh, one last thing, when dealing with Pigs, Poop, and the Feds?  
 .
Like I said at the beginning, the cork NEVER goes back in...  
.
Now does it, big fella?
.

 
Nope, I didn't think it did...

....
