Written on Obamacare plans bring hefty fees for certain drugs :

Four years of Obamacare have produced health insurance for just 1.4% of uninsured Americans.

According to CNBC, of the 5 million people the Obama administration claims have enrolled in Obamacare, just 715,000 are previously uninsured Americans who have chosen and paid for new insurance. As the Washington Post notes, there are 48.6 million uninsured Americans. That means that after four years of being the law of the land, Obamacare--whose purported purpose was to cover the uninsured--has provided coverage for just 1.4% of uninsured Americans. The very purpose of Obamacare was to insure the uninsured.

Indeed, the vast majority of those who have signed up for Obamacare are merely the same Americans who already had health insurance but whose plans were canceled by Obamacare.

Obamacare Scam Explained:

To insure the uninsured, we make the insured uninsured. Then we make the formerly insured pay more to become reinsured, so we can insure the uninsured for free or nearly free.

After assisting the Muslim Brother terrorist group, now there is no doubt that Obama and his Iranian born senior advisor Valerie Jarrett are assisting Iran with their nuclear weapons program. This is why a veto proof group of 70 senators of both parties have assembled together to stop Obama's efforts to give Iran the bomb that they have vowed to use on many occasions.

Written on Contrast for parties in 2016 presidential race:

Well, let's see, 10 million fewer working age people are working now than 5 years ago, only 47% of adults have full time jobs, black unemployment way up, Hispanic unemployment way up, female unemployment up, youth unemployment way up, Federal debt approaching 110% of GDP, 47 million on food stamps, 1 in 6 live in poverty, 49% pay no Federal tax.

Imagine if, during the campaign of 2008, someone had written the following: “If Barack Obama is elected president, then each year from now on the federal budget will be a trillion dollars in the red. He will pile up in two terms more debt than all previous presidents combined. Interest rates will stay at near zero; he will lower the Labor Force Participation Rate to 1979 (Jimmy Carter) levels, and 3 out of 4 jobs created will be part-time because of Obamacare. Record use of food stamps, unemployment, and disability insurance will be hallmarks of the Obama economy.

The president and democrats repeatedly lied to the American public telling them over and over they can keep their healthcare plan if the like it, they can keep their doctor if they like her and their healthcare cost will go down. Today we know that the Obama Administration has known since 2010 that tens of millions will lose their insurance and be forced into an exchange they can't afford because costs have gone up on average 41% and in many cases up to 200%. Then just as Medicare is about to swell because of boomers and because Obamacare is cutting Medicare by $716 billion and Medicare Advantage by $300 billion starting in 2014, the Obamacare Independent Payment Advisory Board (death panel) is tasked with cutting Medicare costs, primarily through reduction of services, or reduction of payment for services rendered (presumably causing services not to be rendered). What services these panels allow or not will depend entirely on the President who appoints them. This from a president who has already gone on record supporting Pain Pills for the elderly vs treatment.

Written on U.S. unemployment rate falls to five-year low of 7 percent:

The Labor Force Participation Rate dropped by 0.2 percentage points in this two-month period, meaning 666,400 fewer people were in the labor force in November than in September, roughly the equivalent of an entire congressional district.

10 million fewer working age people are working today than when Obama took office and if they were added back into the unemployment equation then unemployment would easily top 12%. Under Obama 3 out of 4 jobs created have been part-time jobs because of Obamacare. Normally 3 out of 4 jobs created are full-time jobs.

To make matters worse Obama is attempting to add another 30 million new immigrant workers to the labor force to take even more of our jobs and further depress wages.

Obama proved he discourages people from being employed, self-sufficient and successful when his Administration opposed food stamp recipients from seeking employment so that millions of families on welfare will no longer be engaged in job preparation activities to help them re-enter the workforce and become self-sufficient. This has resulted in the number of able-bodied adults without children on food stamps to double in just 1 year, increasing from 1.7 million people in 2009 to 3.9 million in 2010.

PolitiFact Says Obama's Lie About Lying is a Lie

Written on Sticker shock often follows insurance cancellation :

The Obama administration has known for three years that when the employer mandate is enforced in 2015 up to 93 million Americans will be forced out of their employer-sponsored health insurance plans.

This means President Obama has not only been lying to Americans for at least three years, reassuring them that they would be able to keep their current healthcare plans, but that a massive chunk of the nation’s insured will be hurt by his signature healthcare reform that leftist Democrats unethically rammed through Congress in the dead of night.

The government will take over health care, the costs will skyrocket and the Federal Agency assigned to enforce Obamacare will refuse to participate in it. Obama will outsource the ACA front-end web site and it will fail, all while he hands out over 1200 ObamaCare waivers to his Special Interest groups and Campaign Donors. Then Obama will illegally delay the Employer Mandate portion of the law until after the 2014 elections because of its negative impact on unemployment.

Also, according to Joe Biden, also in 2007, not only is a U.S. president constitutionally forbidden from attacking another country that doesn’t present an imminent threat to America, but he said it is an impeachable offense:

Written on 'Obamacare' enrollment launch just 8 weeks away:

Health insurance rates in Georgia are rising by up to 198 percent under Obamacare, the Georgia Insurance Commissioner said in a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Monday.

The union that represents IRS employees is urging its members to write to their congressmen to help get the union out of Obamacare.

Former Democrat Presidential Candidate and Governor of Vermont Howard Dean said:

“The Independent Payment Advisory Board is a “health-care rationing body,” which has the power to set rates for certain procedures for Medicare and determine which procedures and drugs will be covered.

The IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.”

While Dean agrees that costs need to be contained, he says the mechanism that will run the IPAB — known as rate-setting — has a 40-year track record of failure.

Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin had the same opinion that it is a rationing body and the IPAB will decide who will die and who will live, strictly by bureaucratic regulation, not in a doctor patient relationship. She therefore dubbed them the IPAB “Death Panel.”

Oct. 22 - Obama said “Now, with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way ...”

Oct. 25 - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told a Pentagon press briefing that while there were forces in place in the region, the “basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place.”

However we have now confirmed that during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi the White House Situation Room was receiving real time information from three different sources simultaneously, two overhead drones and emails as well as a possible real time video feed directly from the U.S. Consulate.

So, if the president is telling the truth that he actually instructed his assistants to get aid to Benghazi, then the secretary of defense apparently refused to obey the president's order. Of course it's far more likely the president is not telling the truth again.

Written on Face to face: Obama, Romney in crackling debate :

Obama's Top Ten Lies

1. "He did call it an act of terror." Obama's reference to "acts of terror" in his Sep. 12 statement was in an abstract sense, and came long after he had described the 9/11 attacks as demonstrations against an anti-Islam video. For 2 weeks the Obama Administration publicly blamed the attack on a video over 47 times.

2. "He wanted to take them into bankruptcy without providing them any way to stay open." Obama did take the auto companies through a managed bankruptcy exactly as Romney had proposed. Romney said: "In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check."

3. "In what new ways do you intend to rectify the inequalities in the workplace, specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn?" Diana Furchtgott-Roth pointed out: "Women make about 95 percent of what their male counterparts earn, if the male counterparts are in the same job with the same experience.". The exception is in the White House where the average female employee for the White House earns about 18 percent less than the average male employee.

4. "And the production is up....What you’re saying is just not true." Obama contested a claim that production of oil is down on federal lands. Romney was exactly right.

5. "You can ship jobs overseas and get tax breaks for it." We have heard the same lie for 8 years. In 2004, he ran for U.S. Senate on a promise to end such tax breaks and again when he ran for President. And yet he has never done anything about it--because there are no such tax breaks.

6. "They rely on it for mammograms." Obama claimed Planned Parenthood provides mammograms to women to help prevent breast cancer. It's just untrue--and even left-leaning mainstream media fact-checkers have acknowledged that.

7. "I want to make sure our timekeepers are working here." Obama complained that he was not receiving as much time to speak. And for the third debate in a row, the Obama/Biden ticket actually spoke for much longer.

8. "He called the Arizona law a model for the nation." As Romney pointed out, he was referring specifically to the e-Verify part of the law.

9. "...[H]e was asked, is it fair for somebody like you, making $20 million a year, to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver....And he said, yes, I think that’s fair." Romney was not saying it was fair that higher income should be taxed at a lower rate. He was referring specifically to the principle that capital gains should be taxed lower than other income because it has been taxed once already--a principle that Obama agrees with in his own tax policy.

10. "I told you I would cut taxes for middle-class families, and I did." Even the liberal Huffington Post acknowledges that's not true. The few tax cuts that Obama did enact--such as the temporary payroll tax holiday--were short-term, or conditional.

This was never about a video and now we have proof that Obama Administration knew it was a terrorist attack within hours, even while lying to the nation over and over about the video for weeks.

Stop the Obama lies and cover-up!

Written on U.S. jobless rate falls to 7.8 percent — a 44-month low:

66 percent of all the jobs created in August and September were part time.

September job gains were less than August.

August job gains were less than July.

July job gains were less than June.

YTD 2012 job gains are less than 2011.

2011 job gains were less than 2010.

Including all the people that Obama has driven from the workforce, unemployment is 12%.

Although only 114,000 new jobs were reported by employers — which is not even enough to keep up with the flow of new graduates and immigrants — the unemployment rate fell from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent because so many people left the workforce again, and because a survey of households showed a spike in part-time employment.

So what in heck is Obama celebrating? Is he mocking all the folks that have given up looking for work or gone on SS Disability? Fact - Many more people have gone on Disability, since Obama took office, than have found jobs. But when he takes them out of the workforce like this, unemployment goes down.

Written on Romney tells Tampa Bay crowd: 'We cannot afford four more years' of Obama :

Obama's time as president has been the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression. Unemployment is 19% when you include those that have given up looking for work since Obama took office.

6 million Americans added to Fed SS Disability Benefits under Obama

Far more Americans have signed on to SS Disability than have founds jobs under Obama

Median incomes have fallen 7.3% under Obama

The poverty rate climbed to 15.7% last year, highest since the 1960's

Health insurance premiums have increased $3,000 per year since the beginning of Obamacare implementation

The Misery Index (combo of unemployment and inflation) has risen from 7.83 to 9.71 under Obama

Obama has added nearly $6 trillion to the National Debt in less than 4 years, which is much more than Bush added in 8 years

Food stamp spending is up 100% under Obama

Gas prices have gone up 100% under Obama (600% in California)

Food prices have gone up 25% under Obama

The recession was a result of the Mortgage Meltdown which was caused by democrats like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, ACORN and their attorney Barack Obama that forced financial institutions to pass out mortgages like candy to folks without the means to pay back the loans.

Now we have elected a president that not only helped cause the original mess, but has made that mess much, much worse.

Written on Debate analysis: Romney's aggressive performance cheers GOP:

Obama: "We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs" federal money should flow to “our neighborhoods”

Umm, Mr. President, have you now written off 80% of America because we don't live in urban areas or because of skin color? Oh and what do you mean by "our neighborhoods" when speaking to a black audience?

Written on FACT CHECK: Missteps by Obama, Romney in first presidential debate :

Obama doesn’t understand how the economy works at all. It took a Mitt Romney to school Obama about basic things like how “investing” in losing enterprises, like green energy company Solyndra, took funds away from other more worthwhile endeavors, or how the private sector can lower costs better than government through competition, or how seniors will suffer as ObamaCare cuts payments to Medicare providers, resulting in less doctors who will treat them. While Obama stumbled and stammered his way through each segment of the debate, Romney appeared as almost a fatherly figure, schooling his “crazy kid” on the facts of life.

Pan,

In an earlier blog I gave a civics lessen we all were taught in the 6th grade on how the government of the United States works. What follows in the Constitution of the United States.

"Let me refresh your memory on the constitution. It takes three branches of government to pass laws, The LEGISLATIVE BRANCH, the EXECUTIVE BRANCH, & the JUDICIAL BRANCH aka Supreme Court.

Congress to the Senate then to the Presidents desk.

If nothing can get passed in the congress The LEGISLATIVE BRANCH , It can't move on to the senate for a vote. If there is no bill for the president (the EXECUTIVE BRANCH) to sign how can you keep blaming Obama"?

The laws according to the constitution come from congress and senate. Stop preaching constitution law when you have NO idea what your talking about. There is more to this countries constitution than the right to bare arms.

Now lets look at Pans list above. How many of those items above need approval from Congress before they can go to the presidents desk.

Pan you should be blaming congressional Republicans for all the deadlock in government, not the President! Let's call a spade a spade.........

Obstructionism can also take the form of widespread agreement to oppose policies from the other side, regardless of any efforts at compromise.

An example is the agreement by a group of Republican politicians at a meeting on January 20th, 2009 when Republican strategist Frank Luntz met with seven Republican representatives, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, and Dan Lungren and five Republican senators, Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl, Tom Coburn, John Ensign, and Bob Corker. Newt Gingrich was also in attendance. The agreement included among other things that they were to "Show united and unyielding opposition to the president's economic policies." Eight days later the Minority Whip, Eric Cantor held the House Republicans to a unanimous "No" vote against Obama's economic stimulus plan. At the end of the meeting Newt Gingrich said "You'll remember this day. You'll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown.

The above names should be hung for treason!

More liberal lies. . . Obama had his first 2 years with complete control of all 3 branches. Since that time he has become a dictator using Executive Power to accomplish his destructive agenda.

In members of Congress that managed to keep Obama's destruction in check should be treated as American Heroes, just like the Nazi resistance forces in WWII.
