Obamacare realities just became a little more intense in the Bluegrass State. Requirements in the Affordable Care Act presented Kentucky Dr. Stephen Kiteck with obstacles he “just couldn’t overcome.”
Dr. Kiteck verified the ad to Townhall Tuesday:
“It’s pretty basic really. The reason is that Obamacare requires electronic medical records and electronic prescribing and I simply don’t have the finances at this time to go into debt to provide that for my office, it would just be a complete new transfer of electronic equipment in my office for that.
So for me, at my age, I’m just not ready to go into financial debt. Of the 20,000 pages in there, probably up to 1,000 pages are about doctors’ offices.”
The Electronic Medical Records mandate requires an electronic overhaul by 2015 or penalization. Check out this visual of its implementation:
“I’ve got 6,000 records, some of them are two inches thick. It would just be basically impossible to scan all of these and put them on electronic medical records and very expensive, by the way,” said Dr. Kiteck, pointing to the many man hours of pay that an electronic overhaul would require.
“It’s a solo practice, I’m just a very small solo practice.… Continue Reading

As they were supposed to be helping me I came to find out that they were damaging my site in an effort to build there own.

The solution to a dysfunctional Congress is not for Obama to govern the country all by himself.
In the face of congressional gridlock, President Obama has started taking more and more matters into his own hands. In recent months, he has announced new gun control measures, put in place limited immigration reform and made fixes to the Affordable Care Act — all without Congress. Many liberals who once worried about presidential overreach have applauded his robust use of presidential power.
Yet the president’s increasing unilateralism shouldn’t be cause for celebration. Bypassing Congress means bypassing democratic checks. It also means giving up on government’s ability to effectively address serious long-term challenges. The solution to a dysfunctional Congress isn’t an unchecked executive; it’s a Congress that actually works.
A first step in that direction was taken recently with the banning of filibusters for executive branch nominees and federal judges below the Supreme Court.
To the contrary, the framers rejected supermajority requirements except in limited circumstances, such as impeaching the president and ratifying treaties. Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 22 that if “a pertinacious minority can control the opinion of a majority,” there would be “tedious delays; continual negotiation and intrigue; contemptible compromises of the public good.” As a result, the government would often be “kept in a state of inaction.” Sound familiar?… Continue Reading

A 25-year-old man from the Redford Township area of Detroit was punched in the head for no apparent reason on Monday night in what is being described as a knockout game type of incident.
Jermaine Findley, who suffers from epilepsy, was injured in the attack.
Once again the stupidity of this violence is on display. Calling these acts a game does not make them any less dangerous. A random violent assault on innocent and unsuspecting victims is cowardly and abhorrent, regardless of race. In this case, it was a white man striking a black man.
That is an unusual turn of events. Usually, it is a black perpetrator and the victim is a non-black.
The most unusual aspect of this case was the intensive news coverage it was given. The ordinary events where a black male assaults a white or other victim are generally not newsworthy enough to be covered. This one came complete with a street-side vigil, with the victim out holding a sign, an interview with the mother of the victim, and a display of his shaking hand as a result of his medical condition.
No mention was made that this “game” originated with black perpetrators and that this incident of a white attacker is unusual.… Continue Reading

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) blasted President Obama on Tuesday after the president shook hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela.
“If the president was going to shake his hand, he should have asked him about those basic freedoms Mandela was associated with that are denied in Cuba,” Rubio said.
Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, has been a vocal critic of the Castro regime. Earlier this year, he told The Cable he believed “the Castro regime sponsors terrorism abroad and against their own people.”
“It remains clear that Cuba is the same totalitarian state today that it has been for decades,” Rubio said. “This totalitarian state continues to have close ties to terrorist organizations.”
He’s also criticized the president for loosening restrictions on travel to the island as part of an economic embargo instituted during the Cold War.
The White House defended the handshake earlier, saying it was not a “pre-planned encounter” and was intended in the spirit of the day.
“Above all else, today is about honoring Nelson Mandela, and that was the president’s singular focus at the memorial service,” said an administration official. “We appreciate that people from all over the world are participating in this ceremony.”
The official also noted that in his remarks, Obama urged world leaders to honor Mandela’s struggle for freedom by upholding basic human rights within their own country.… Continue Reading

Larry the Cable Guy appeared on Sean Hannity on Monday night, where not only did he know his facts about Obamacare, he provided some humor that presents some honesty about just how bad Obamacare is.
“It’s a disaster. But I have figured a lot of it out. I figured out the Bronze plan. The Bronze plan is the color your finger’s going to look like after you give yourself a prostrate exam. The gold plan is when you start to miss your wedding ring after you had to pay for the deductible. The silver plan is what color your hair is going to be after you sign up for it.”… Continue Reading
The liberal New York Times has been slammed by the New York Post over a feature it ran about thousands of “homeless” children living in New York City.
In an editorial, the Post says that the five-part article written by Andrea Elliott is contrived to make it appear as though life in New York City is a nightmare for an estimated 22,000 homeless children.
The story, headlined “Invisible Child” in the liberal daily newspaper, centers on the plight of a young a young girl named Dasani, along with her parents and seven siblings, supposedly living in impoverished condition in Brooklyn.
“Her family lives in..a decrepit city-run shelter for the homeless,” claimed The Times. “It is a place where mold creeps up walls and roaches swarm, where feces and vomit plug communal toilets, where sexual predators have roamed and small children stand guard for their single mothers outside filthy showers.
“It is no place for children. Yet Dasani is among 280 children at the shelter. Beyond its walls, she belongs to a vast and invisible tribe of more than 22,000 homeless children in New York, the highest number since the Great Depression, in the most unequal metropolis in America.”
But The Post said that if the feature “is to be believed” it makes it look like New York City does not seem to care about those in need.… Continue Reading
Tens of thousands of South Africans united in proud, noisy celebration Tuesday at a rain-soaked emotional memorial service to global freedom icon Nelson Mandela, attended by presidents and princes and watched by millions around the world.
President Barack Obama eulogized Nelson Mandela as a “giant of history” who became more than a smiling icon by showing the power of political action.
“It is hard to eulogize any man . . . how much harder to do so for a giant of history, who moved a nation towards justice,” Obama said, after being introduced to wild cheers from a rain-sodden crowd in a Soweto stadium during Mandela’s memorial service.
Songs of praise and revolution, many harking back to the apartheid era that Mandela helped condemn to history, echoed around the giant stadium in Soweto where close to 100 world leaders had come to pay tribute to a man whose life story earned uncommon universal respect
The event began at midday with a stirring rendition of the national anthem, Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika (God Bless Africa), led by a mass choir and picked up with enthusiasm by the rest of the stadium.
Some 80,000 had been expected, but the venue was two-thirds full as the ceremony got underway under a curtain of rain that had been falling since the early morning.… Continue Reading
