Obama Lies about His Lies

Posted by

We’ve heard it literally hundreds of times “We will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan, period.”

From The Daily Caller:

“What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” he told Obamacare’s political beneficiaries and contractors.

That claim is not supported by his videotaped statements, which don’t include any mention of his new “if it hasn’t changed” exception.

Thing is, insurance companies were mandated by the Federal Government to change their plans to include “Ten Essential Health Benefits“. So it was clear to the White House that people were going to loose their plans.

In fact, according to Forbes Magazine, Obama officials knew in 2010 that 93 Million Americans would be unable to keep their health plans under Obamacare, referencing the June 2010 Federal Register.

Obama’s whopper is way bigger than Clinton’s about having sex. Obama’s whopper significantly affects tens of millions of citizens.

Obama’s Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers

According to the Investor’s Business Daily,

Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

SOWELL: The race-hustlers among us

I first found out about Thomas Sowell while watching “Free to Choose” videos that were aired on Public television in 1980. At the time I was shocked to see a bold conservative black man. What a rare find! Since then I’ve been enjoying his essays. This one was written a couple of weeks ago.

There have been many ponderous academic writings and dour editorials in the mainstream media lamenting that most people born poor cannot rise in American society anymore. Meanwhile, many poor immigrants arrive here from various parts of Asia, and rise on up the ladder anyway

Some people try to explain why Asians and Asian-Americans succeed so well in education and in the economy by some special characteristics that they have. That may be true, but their success may also be a result of what they do not have; namely, “leaders” who tell them that the deck is so stacked against them that they cannot rise, or at least not without depending on “leaders.”

Mark Levin on Sean Hannity

Posted by

This was filmed in August 2013 (better late than never!). Levin talks about his new book, The Liberty Amendments, Restoring the American Republic.  It is based upon Article V of the Constitution which describes how amendments may be proposed and ratified.

Amendments may be proposed by either:

To become part of the Constitution, amendments must then be ratified either by approval of:

Fat chance that Congress would propose a term limits amendment on itself, but the states have the power to do so. How about term limits for Supreme Court Justices as well? What about amendments to limit taxing and spending? Levin suggests 11 amendments well worth considering. They offer hope for our Republic.

10 Ways Obamacare Isn’t Working

From the Heritage Foundation:

Obamacare is an unworkable law.

It’s obvious because the Administration keeps trying to “fix” it—to no avail. It has delayed parts of the law, ignored others, and carved out exemptions for its political allies.

1. WAIVERS: The Administration established a legally questionable program of temporary waivers when firms announced they were considering dropping coverage rather than comply with the law’s costly requirements. Even though more than half of the recipients of these waivers were members of union plans, many union leaders are still not satisfied—they want another waiver, to receive taxpayer-funded subsidies for their employer-provided coverage.

2. ILLEGAL TAXPAYER SUBSIDIES FOR CONGRESS: Last month, following heavy lobbying from leaders in both parties—and an intervention from President Obama himself—the Administration issued a rule regarding coverage for Members of Congress and their staffs, who will retain their taxpayer-funded insurance subsidies in the exchanges. Unfortunately, as previous research has documented, the Administration had no legal basis on which to make this ruling. Read more »

F.D.R. Warned Us!

From the New York Times: Even uber liberal FDR said

 “It is impossible to bargain collectively with the government.”

Public sector unions insist on laws that serve their interests — at the expense of the common good.

The founders of the labor movement viewed unions as a vehicle to get workers more of the profits they help create. Government workers, however, don’t generate profits. They merely negotiate for more tax money. When government unions strike, they strike against taxpayers. F.D.R. considered this “unthinkable and intolerable.”

And unions contribute to the campaigns of legislators (democrat) who negotiate for higher wages. A conflict of interest don’t you think?

H/T Sandy!  This is from the Freedom Foundation: Read more »

Obamacare: More Benefits + New Rules = Higher Costs

“Affordable” Health Care Act? Sure…..

My husband and I have a ‘Health Savings Account’ which provides for ‘lower’ (not that low!) premiums with a very high deductible. Looks like that’s going away in October, as Regence has cautioned. We aren’t in the market for most of the ’10 essential health benefits’ as defined by the federal government, but we will pay for them anyway.
