Remember when Obama explained that the website would be easier than making a purchase on e-bay or Amazon? If the objective is to have a healthcare system that operates as efficiently and easily as the private sector economy… Then, why did we hand control over to the government?
It’s kinda hard to spend thousands of dollars at big box store on Black Friday when you’re not sure how Tiny Tim is going to pay for his physical therapy. Obamacare and Obamanomics, it would seem, are doing their best to steal Christmas.
According to CBS news, US District Court Judge Marcia Krieger said that “if individual sheriffs wish to protect individual rights or interests they may do so, however, the sheriffs have confused their individual rights and interests with those of the county sheriff’s office.”
After having banned concealed carry in all of their stadiums, and even ordering women to give up their purse in favor of see-through plastic bags, (don’t ya feel safer now?) the NFL has accelerated its war on gun ownership by trampling the First Amendment rights of a potential Super Bowl sponsor.
Bloomberg’s Chief economic Editor, Mike McKee, has decided that Kennedy’s decidedly pro-growth reforms to the tax code actually illustrate his liberal Keynesian bent. (Wait. . . Don’t laugh yet. Watch the video first.)
What would you do next if you had successfully brokered a “Neville Chamberlin” style deal with a rogue state that wants to annihilate America and her Middle East allies? Well. . . You’d downgrade diplomatic ties with the Vatican, of course. At least, that’s what you would do if you were Obama.
Union groups are ramping up for “massive” strikes at Walmart this Black Friday. If prior years are any indication, we can expect a handful of union thugs showing up at a handful of Walmart stores, with a few mass-printed signs. The rest of America, however, will be buying discounted flat screens (and driving store employees insane).
Looking for advice on how to improve the NYPD’s ability to keep New Yorkers safe, incoming Mayor Bill de Blasio is turning to the experts in criminal activity. . . Ex-convicts. The “expert’s” message was pretty simple: “Get Soft on Crime.”
For a full, and complete, argument against the changes that the Senate Leader (Reid) made yesterday with support from Joe Biden and Barack Obama, I direct your attention to the past. . . When all three argued against the change. (Of course, it was different then: Republicans were proposing the rule change.)
Investigations (ya know. . . The press refers to them as “witch-hunts” when Darrell Issa calls for one) are likely to crop up in the coming weeks. The revelation that government employees “tampered” with jobs data prior to Obama’s reelection is also likely to further erode our Government’s decaying credibility.
According to people like Arne Duncan: Only the folks who brought us healthcare.gov can bring some degree of competency into our American education system. (Stop laughing. That really is what he’s suggesting.) It makes you wonder if his mother is a “white suburban mom”.
The university professor is representative of a liberal mentality that the Constitution is an obstacle to effective governance, when in reality the Constitution is an obstacle to over-governance. It almost seems the American Left would prefer a list of restrictions on individual liberty rather than a list of enumerated rights.
One of Obamacare’s primary architects, MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber, has described the millions who have lost their insurance as “genetic lottery winners”. He says they should be forced to pay more for coverage because they are lucky enough to be healthy.
Jared Bernstein, the man who was formerly responsible for advising Vice President Joe Biden on economic matters (wow . . . that would be a daunting task), has said that if Obama is a socialist, he’s “the worst socialist in history.” I assume this was not meant as an assessment on Obama’s competency.
From the party that decided to parse the meaning of the word “is” in the 1990’s has come a full range of defenses. The most popular being that “for 95 percent of Americans” the President’s claim will prove to be accurate. . . Of course this is merely the most recent lie to escape the lips of the Left’s most desperate salesmen.
An African American woman was recently told by a school principle that – even though her child attended the school – she was no longer permitted to engage in school activities, volunteer at school functions, or even “trespass” on school property. Why? Apparently because she owns a gun.
Honestly, how else do we expect Carney to defend claims like “you can keep your insurance if you like it” or “you can sign up in as little as 25 minutes”? I guess insults and temper tantrums are the only thing left in his repertoire, given the ruined Presidency he is expected to defend on a daily basis.
Well, like Blofeld, Dr. No, Goldfinger, or any other Bond villain, Mayor Bloomberg is not content with running his own city-island into a progressive tax-trap. He feels it might be time to expand his East Coast liberalism to states that are known for their traditional individualism and libertarian bent.
Bill de Blasio wants to gut a privately funded non-profit so the city can fix some swing sets in Harlem. (Or something.)
Another woman being interviewed by NBC asked, rightfully, what she’s supposed to eat now that her insurance premium is as large as her rental payment. (Cake?) Over 1.5 million Americans have received similar letters in recent weeks, with up to 14 million more Americans potentially on the healthcare chopping block.
