California Insurance Exchange uses Tax Dollars for Health Care to help Obamacare Applicants register to Vote

Posted by PITHOCRATES - March 30th, 2014

Week in Review

Some see amnesty as a Democrat voter registration drive.  Because people will remember who helped them become legal citizens.  The Democrats.  And will vote Democrat.  Some have also said the Affordable Care Act is another Democrat voter registration drive.  As Obamacare gave enormous sums of money to people running the insurance exchanges.  To set up and maintain those exchanges.  And to do something with all of that data they collected.  Such as making sure these people signing up for these ‘Democrat’ benefits (the Affordable Care Act was passed along purely partisan lines) register to vote (see California to Send Voter Registration Cards to Obamacare Applicants by McClatchy News posted 3/25/2014 on Governing).

Heading off a lawsuit over compliance with a federal voting rights law, California officials have agreed to help millions of state residents register to vote.

Under a deal announced Monday by several voting-rights groups, the state will send voter registration cards to nearly 3.8 million Californians who have applied for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act…

The Department of Motor Vehicles and state offices that aid low-income mothers and the disabled are also among the agencies required to provide registration services…

A spokeswoman for the state health insurance exchange, Covered California, said the network had already taken “some interim steps,” including providing voter registration information and links to the secretary of State’s office on its website.

It’s probable that these people would not have voted in the next election had they not signed up for mandatory health insurance.  But they did.  And now are receiving voter registration information.  From the good people who signed them up for their health insurance.  No doubt Democrat supporters.  Will they coach these people on how to vote as well as registering them to vote?  Will someone explain to them that if they want more free benefits they need to vote Democrat?  Perhaps.

It’s how you buy votes.  You give people something.  And keep giving them something as long as they keep voting for you.  At least, that’s what they say at election time.  “I fought to increase Social Security funding while the Republicans wanted to privatize it and make you risk your retirement in the stock market.”  “I fought to increase Medicare spending while the Republicans wanted to privatize it and make it wither on a vine.”  Etc.  So is it improbable to think someone is telling them to be sure to vote Democrat so the Republicans can’t take away your health insurance?  To use tax dollars for health care to register Democrat voters?  Not really.

The Democrats ran an ad showing a Republican pushing Granny off a cliff in a wheelchair.  ‘Rogue’ IRS agents took it upon themselves (or so the Obama administration claims) to harass Tea Party groups to prevent their fund raising, suppressing their free speech in the 2012 election.   And, of course, the Democrats lied to the American people to pass the Affordable Care Act into law.  If you like your health insurance and doctor, they said, you could keep your health insurance and doctor.  So when it comes to getting what they want they appear to be rather pragmatic.  Where the ends justify the means.  No matter how unsavory, or legally questionable, those means are.  Which would make the insurance exchanges the perfect voter registration mechanism.  At least for one not bothered by the unsavory or legally questionable.

Democrats Lie to Women about the Gender Pay Gap to get them to Vote Democrat

Posted by PITHOCRATES - February 2nd, 2014

Week in Review

The Democrats tell women that Republicans have a war on women.  They, after all, don’t want to pay for their birth control.  They don’t want to allow them to have an abortion.  And they defend businesses that only pay women 77 cents to every dollar a man earns.  Yes, Republicans may prefer seeing women as something other than sexual objects.  Preferring they marry, raise a family and live happily ever after.  Instead of just being sexual play things.  While Democrats tell women that the only thing important to them at election time is birth control and abortion.  But that gender pay gap is simply not true (see Gender Pay Gap: When You’ve Lost Slate… by Walter Olson posted 1/30/2014 on Cato).

White House speechwriters couldn’t resist sticking an applause line into President Obama’s State of the Union speech about how women supposedly earn only 77 cents to every dollar a man earns in America. Even more depressing, it drew some of the night’s biggest applause. But as almost everyone familiar with the numbers has had reason to know for years and years, it simply isn’t true. Most, if not all, of the gap melts away once you factor in variables such as hours worked, choice of occupation, and midcareer family interruption, among others.

The big applause can only mean one of two things.  Either that those applauding are very ignorant of the facts they are debating.  Not a good quality in a representative of the people.  Or that they are lying about the facts.  Which is also not a good quality in a representative of the people.  So which is it?  Well, let’s see.  Are there any examples of Democrats lying to get something they want?  Why, yes there is. The lie of the year.  When President Obama said if you like your health insurance you can keep it.  Period.  It turns out that Obamacare wouldn’t work if people kept the health insurance they liked.  So they wrote the law to make it impossible for that to happen.

So there is a history of telling big lies.  Lies so big that they win the title of lie of the year.  So one would have to conclude that they are knowingly lying about the gender pay gap.  But why?  Because women are 50% of the electorate.  That’s why.  And if they don’t scare or anger them into voting Democrat they may just vote based on the facts.  And vote Republican.
