Again, sorry for the light news postings. I have been knee-deep in work for a fundraiser taking place tonight. I will be more free to post again beginning tomorrow.
The truth shall set you free. “However, this congressional retreat raises a difficult political question for the president and congressional Democrats: They must now admit that Obamacare’s individual mandate is actually a tax, something they’ve resisted doing in public for years.” Dems may have to admit Obamacare tax increase: Column
Do they really think we are that stupid? “According to Obama and his defenders, what he meant by “plan” or “insurance” is something different from what you might have thought he meant.” President Haze
We really are in the best of hands. I promise! “His lies are not mainly for self-defense (although Benghazi has elements of that). They are lies of ideological volition. He lies to get his way. And he does it so well, with so much seeming earnestness — as in his umpteen (and continuing!) pronouncements that no one would lose their health insurance or personal physician from Obamacare, when, it’s now clear, he knew all the while this was utterly false — that his behavior appears almost sociopathic.” God, Lies and Obama
We’ll all be paying for this for years and years and years… “Obamacare is the largest transfer of wealth in recent American history. But you can’t say that openly lest you lose elections. So you do it by subterfuge: hidden taxes, penalties, mandates, and coverage requirements that yield a surplus of overpayments.” Obamacare’s Moment of Clarity
The Democrats own every single inch of this monstrosity. “In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.” Senate Democrats supported rule that led to insurance cancellations
Are you doing your happy dance yet? “A contractor heavily involved in repairing HealthCare.gov was previously criticized for endangering the personal data of more than 6 million government beneficiaries through insufficient security controls.” Great news: Company in charge of fixing Healthcare.gov got federal rebuke for lax security
The answer to your question would be no! “Here’s health-care consultant Bob Laszewski, whose own “Cadillac plan” was recently canceled due to the new O-Care rules, blowing the whistle on the “bad apples” nonsense. Does the White House actually understand how the insurance industry works?” Dem congressman to Megyn Kelly on people getting dropped from insurance plans: It’s capitalism
How anyone thinks that Hillary would make a good president is beyond me. “In fact, Hillary didn’t preside over one significant treaty or trade agreement from beginning to end in her term, a remarkable track record of mediocrity. Her tenure was bookended by an embarrassing “reset button” with Russia and a humiliating defeat in Benghazi. Her only path to the presidency rests firmly on Barack Obama’s coattails. By 2016, no one will have voted for her husband in 20 years, or for her in eight.” Hillary running away from Obama?
Many of these folks who are moving will bring their Democrat voting habits to their newly adopted low tax states, and we all know what will happen then, we’ll all be blue! Lucky us. “High taxes produce revenues to finance handsome benefits and pensions for public employee union members in the high-cost states. It’s hard to see how this benefits middle-class people making their livings in the private sector.” Americans Keep Moving to States With Low Taxes and Housing Costs
The media FINALLY starts to notice that our Emporer has no clothes. “The White House thinks they can spin their way out of this. Unfortunately, Obama and Democrats completely own ObamaCare, and not even using insurers as a scapegoat will get them off the hook for the skyrocketing premiums that Obama promised to cut by $2500 a year. The incompetence and prevarications have caught up with and eclipsed Hope and Change, and now everyone’s noticing it.” The Media Begins to Wonder Who’s Running the Show in the White House
I’ve linked to stories on this before. They information is worth repeating, and sharing. “Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture. “ Obama’s Military Coup Purges 197 Officers In Five Years
SOUNDING THE ALARM! From someone who knows! “But there is a nauseating glasnost-style operation now being conducted here in the United States that makes me feel as though I were watching a reenactment of the immense glasnost I used to manage during the years when I was an adviser to Romania’s communist president Nicolae Ceausescu.” Lenin, Stalin, Ceausescu, Obama: How Marxist Leaders Conceal Their Pasts
