As soon as you hear Obama make a decision that seems to go against the grain, many Americans question, what is the real reason?  Well, Barack Obama's veto of the Keystone XL pipeline begs for the truth.  And, the truth is, it's about corporate profits and cronyism by the left.

To be fair, this is old news.  Investigative reporting in 2013, exposed the money behind killing Keystone.  The mainstream press just suppressed the story.  The story was first reported by the Dickinson Press in North Dakota, then select reporting by The Washington Times and Bloomberg.

Obama's delay tactics and veto are all about campaign cash and big profits for a big Democrat donor.  In 2012-13, Obama conducted a series of fundraisers with Democrat high rollers.  He promised to move aggressively on green energy and efforts to interfere with "old" energy technology, like oil pipelines.  What followed was a massive stream of cash to the Democrat National Committee and into Obama's political operations.  Which helped grease Obama's re-election victory.

The question is, did any one Democrat donor profit off of stopping Keystone XL?  Yes, one of
America's wealthiest corporatists, Warren Buffett.  According to Federal Election Commission records, Buffett dumped large donations to Obama and numerous other lefty organizations.

So, where is the crony connection to Buffett, Obama and Keystone?  It's all about railroads and who controls the rail lines to transport shale oil from Canada to American ports and refineries.  You see, the Burlington, Northern and Santa Fe (BNSF) rail line is operated by a conglomerate of Berkshire Hathaway, which is controlled by Warren Buffett.  This highly profitable, rail line is the primary transporter of Canadian shale oil to the U.S.  In addition, Berkshire Hathaway controls the largest manufacturer of oil tank cars - Union Tank Car.

President of the consulting firm Rail Theory Forecasts LL, Toby Kolstad, stated about the high demand for rail lines and rail cars for crude transport, 
"People who want to ship oil can't get them.  They're desperate to get anything to move crude oil."
Bottom line:  When we connect the dots, we realize that without Keystone XL, Buffett continues to rake in massive rail profits, and Obama enjoys a second term in the White House.  And, now we know why Warren Buffett is obsessed with railroads.

The Republican National Committee recently announced nine debates for those seeking the Republican nomination for President in 2016.  Three additional debates were also proposed.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus stated this was a course correction from the seemingly marathon debates in 2012.  In 2012, Republican candidates had 20 debates.  This created limited preparation time for most candidates, scheduling conflicts while campaigning, and diverted messaging away from the record of the Democrats. The new schedule and format will provide adequate time for candidates to hit the campaign trail, improved media coverage, and time to be ready for the debate.

The RNC has taken measures to assure candidates are positioned for success.  The RNC has scheduled debates on several different television networks.  Each network is in agreement with the format and expectations of the party.  Debates will be on several networks, yet more debates will be on networks in which more Republican voters watch.  For instance, Fox network will carry three debates.  While ABC will carry only one, and MSNBC will not air a GOP debate.

As mentioned, there are nine confirmed Republican debates.  There are three additional debates which have yet to be sanctioned by the RNC.

Maverick Media announces The American Maverick Show has been nominated for Blog Bash's "Best in Show for Podcast of the Year Award".  The annual awards are presented at the annual gathering of conservative bloggers and new media moguls during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Conservative talk host Flint Engleman is thrilled,
"No one is more plugged into the conservative mindset than the movers and shakers of the national bloggers at Blog Bash.  Their nomination is an honor to the work our show produced in 2014 to confront Common Core, expose illegal immigration and hold elected officials accountable."  
In 2014, The American Maverick Show was on the forefront of political coverage.  Host Flint Engleman was the first podcast to interview Dave Brat prior to his primary triumph over Eric Cantor for Congress.  Also, his October, 2014, interview with Ed Gillespie put the U.S. Senate candidate on the record to oppose amnesty for immigration reform before any other media source.

The American Maverick Show will be on-air live for CPAC 2015.  We'll be on CPAC Radio Row for the third straight year with lively conservative commentary and a full line-up of guests.  Also, our co-host Phillip Stucky will be there with a young conservative's perspective of CPAC.

America has witnessed a long and painful dissection of the Affordable Care Act.  Pointed debate from the right and the left about the viability of Obamacare continues.  Now, citizens are looking for solutions to stabilize our health care system and provide common sense certainty to the future of health care in America.

As time goes on with Obamacare, more are discovering the pitfalls of the policy and even more are being negatively impacted.  You name it.  From loss of coverage, astounding premiums, loss of physician choice, increased drug costs, and higher deductibles, Americans over time are feeling significant impacts.  

Obamacare on its own merits is imploding.  The "Affordable" Care Act will simply run out of money.  The entire policy depended on young, healthy, premium paying citizens to bring in billions of revenue to leverage health care for the ill and elderly.  The thresholds for healthy citizens set by the White House to pay for Obamacare have fallen far short of expectations.  

So, what will replace the unaffordable care act?

On the left, the push is for a single payer system.  A complete government run system.  Basically, 100% socialized health care.  Single payer will mandate all premiums be paid directly to the federal government.  In essence, single payer health care will completely eliminate the entire health care component of the private insurance market.  Medical insurance as we know it will cease.  Americans will be totally dependent on the federal government for their health care coverage as well as government controlled premiums, deductibles and access to physicians.

Now, let's talk about the right solution for health care in America.

Conservatives offer free market solutions that will combine free market principles, legal reform and continuity of insurance coverage.  These reforms will dramatically lower premiums, increase provider care, broaden choice of physician, and provide affordable insurance to alleviate dependency on Medicaid.

These reforms would replace Obamacare after a full legislative repeal by Congress.

Here's a brief overview of health care solutions from the right:

  • Interstate Health Insurance Competition.  This is the single best solution to curing America's health care crisis.  Currently, citizens can only purchase medical insurance within their state.  They cannot shop around to other state insurance carriers for a better rate or better overall coverage.  Should Congress allow interstate insurance competition, insurance companies will dramatically lower premium rates, lower deductibles and enhance medical services covered by insurance agencies.  Insurance companies will completely structure their policies to be the most attractive and affordable across the country.  Americans would have an extraordinary degree of choice of medical insurance.  This is free market health care at its best.    
  • Health Care Industry Tort and Legal Reform.  Over the past 50 years health care providers have been smothered by litigation and the cost of liability coverage.  The threat of frivolous and multi-million dollar lawsuits have forced medical facilities and physicians to pass the cost of major liability coverage to patients and insurers.  Thus, driving up the cost of health care, spiking premiums and performing costly, perhaps unnecessary tests and procedures.  Should Congress take action to provide targeted Tort reforms, this would greatly relieve pressure on providers to pass costs to patients.  These reforms must be limited in nature.  Some examples: set criteria that must be satisfied to file a medical lawsuit, consider setting caps for non-catastrophic medical lawsuits, set a statute of limitation for class action cases, and set a "loser pays" mandate for medical related lawsuits.  
  • Compassionate Conservatism in Health Care.  When it comes down to it, there are some wedge issues that must be addressed by the right concerning health care.  There are significant gaps in coverage that with careful policy consideration could be resolved.  First, Congress needs to assure portability of coverage as individuals move from job to job.  This is broadly supported by the right and left.  Secondly, Congress needs to address insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions.  This might be difficult for some legislators to enact.  However, this is a true human issue that needs federal backing to provide clarity for insurance companies and certainty for at risk patients.
Now here's the awesome part of the right's solutions.  The combined savings of interstate insurance competition and legal reform will create hundreds of Billions, possibly Trillions, in savings for patients and providers.  These savings will drive the cost of medical insurance so low that it will be incredibly affordable for many that are considered working poor.  In essence, the cost and breadth of coverage will be very attractive to low income America.  This will entice individuals to leave Medicaid.  Which would greatly lower the impact of Medicaid on state budgets.  Reversing a trend in most states with Medicaid consuming over 25% of the overall budget.

Here's some other great net effects of the reforms...

Patients and medical providers come out winners.  Physicians would not longer have to perform extra tests/procedures to protect against litigation.  This will save enormous amounts of revenue and medical resources.  Patients will no longer be put at risk for unnecessary procedures.  

The trend of retiring physicians would be curtailed and perhaps reversed.  Doctors would be able to return to private practice due to lower liability costs.  This would also improve healthcare by dramatically increasing physician choice and one-on-one care.  

Insurance competition would be incredible for the consumer.  Insurance companies would structure their medical policies to be the most competitive for individuals and businesses.  Insurers may have price wars across state lines to offer plans to gain the most customers.  Customers would see plans offering more coverage for more medical services at a lower cost.  Deductibles and co-pays could disappear as companies continue to compete for more customers.

Bottom line:  Free-market solutions, legal reforms and compassionate conservatism will blow away any of the big government, Obamacare policies of the left.  These solutions will unleash the opportunity for more Americans to receive genuine, affordable medical coverage than ever before.  And, restore confidence and strengthen the world's best health care system.

The U.S, House of Representatives took action today for the full repeal of Obamacare.  Republicans stood united in voting to let Obama know their constituents cannot stomach any more government intrusion.

U.S. House Representative from Virginia, Dave Brat, delivered words of wisdom to the idealogue of the White House.  

Congressman Brat spoke about the negative economic impact of Obamacare.  It's impact on American families and business owners who need lower cost health care they can afford.  

Here is an excerpt of Congressman Brat's speech:

“Obamacare came with many promises, but the American people are finally getting the bill in the mail, and they don’t like what they see.  We were promised lower costs, but we’ve seen most premiums and deductibles only skyrocket.  Almost nine out of 10 people who buy insurance on an Obamacare exchange need a government subsidy just to afford it."
“As I’ve traveled my district, I’ve talked with countless small business owners who think of their employees like family and already provide health coverage for their fine workers.  But now that Obamacare is forcing them to buy more expensive insurance, many are having to lay off their own employees or convert them to part time to avoid these skyrocketing costs." 
“At a time when we should be growing the economy, Obamacare is forcing businesses to lay off people, cut their hours, and cut off their health care coverage.  Health care in America certainly had problems before this law, but Obamacare has been a cure worse than the disease.”
