Obama Liar and Thief!

Obama Said This with a Straight Face!





October 22, 2013 at 6:30 am "Thousands of people are signing up and saving money as we speak".






























Yes, President Obama actually said that yesterday about Obamacare. As we all know, for the vast majority of people, the opposite is true.


SIGNING UP? Most people have found it impossible to sign up
for coverage through the Healthcare.gov website. In fact, some of the
people standing behind the President during his speech—who were supposed
to represent “success stories”—have not yet obtained coverage.


SAVING MONEY? Heritage research revealed that in 43 out of 47 states with information available, premiums are higher in the Obamacare marketplaces than in the individual insurance market.


The first problem—website signups—can be fixed. The second—Obamacare price—cannot.




Obama touted the fact that young people can stay on their parents’ plans until they are 26. But what about parents whose premiums are going up? Or people who are turning 27 and facing the disproportionately high cost burden that Obamacare puts on young adults?


He touted the law’s Medicaid expansion, which puts more Americans on a broken-down program where one out of three primary care doctors already won’t accept new patients.


He claimed Obamacare would bring “competition” and “more
choices.” In reality, the opposite is true. Heritage experts Robert
Moffit and Edmund Haislmaier have explained how “Under Obamacare, Americans will have less choice and less competition” (emphasis added).


He claimed Obamacare is “high quality” health insurance. But
it’s a one-size-fits-all deal—and that doesn’t work for health care. A
high quality system would put patients and their needs first.


Today Obama said, “The Affordable Care Act is not just a website—it’s
much more.” Exactly. The Obamacare website might eventually get
fixed—but Obamacare won’t.

The media are doing a good job covering the ObamaCare launch
problems. But like their coverage of President Obama's disastrous
performance in his first presidential debate with Mitt Romney, there is a
partisan motive at work here. The media want ObamaCare to succeed and
believe that pounding away at the site problems will motivate the White
House to get the site fixed.


While the tech problems are real and worth covering, so are five
other ObamaCare catastrophes. But the media won't cover those because to
do so might further undermine the program:


1. Millions are Losing Their Health Insurance


About 14 million Americans (not enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid)
purchase their health insurance privately as opposed to through an
employer. Because a large percentage of these plans do not cover
everything ObamaCare mandates a policy cover -- among other things:
birth control, mental health, maternity, vision, dental -- these plans
are being cancelled -- no matter how happy people might be with them. We
learned today that in just one state just one provider dropped 300,000 customers.


Now these 300,000 (and millions more, including spouses being dropped by UPS and other organizations)
have not only lost the health insurance they were happy with, they have
also been thrown into the nightmare of these ObamaCare exchanges.
Moreover, because their old insurance plans were dumped for not covering
everything the government now demands be covered, you can bet that the
new plans will be more expensive.


And let's not forget that with a new health insurance plan, you can
lose the doctor you had and liked under the old one. Repeatedly,
President Obama promised the American people that his health care
reforms would not cost people their doctors or force them off the health
insurance plans they like. Now we know that was nothing more than a
bald-faced lie.


2. Premium Increases on Working and Middle Class


President Obama hosted a Rose Garden event Monday where he
incessantly repeated a talking point about health care now being more
affordable. Certainly, for some, it will be, especially those joining
the expanded Medicaid rolls. For many more millions among the working and middle class, premiums are going up, sometimes by as much as 50% to 150%. We are not talking about taxing the wealthy here, we are talking about everyday people, families, and small businesses.

Millions are about to have their standard of living hit and their
ability to save for college and retirement undermined -- mostly because
the government is forcing them to give up a health care premium they
were happy with, and purchase another loaded with services they neither
need nor want.


Keep in mind that all of this is happening to these families in a no-growth economy.


3. Obama's One-Year Delay On Business Mandate Strands the Middle and Working Class


In 2015, and in an anemic job growth-era that is entering year five of creating mostly part-time jobs,
ObamaCare will sock small business owners with a massive tax. If a
company has more than 50 full-time employees, they are either required
to provide them with ObamaCare or pay a fine of $2000 a year per
employee.


Why would a small business owner add another full-time employee if it
means being socked with the kinds of costs associated with paying for
health insurance or paying the fine?


Obviously, these fledgling businesses are going to either hire part-time workers or go to a temp agency.


The most cynical part of this mandate, though, is that this is the
employer mandate Obama delayed for a year. But he didn't delay it to
help business as much as he did it to increase the number of people who
would be forced to enroll for ObamaCare during this crucial first year.


With no carrot or stick, businesses already at or above the 50
employee threshold are a lot less likely to offer their employees health
insurance until the mandate kicks in the following year. This leaves
who-knows-how-many employees stranded for a year without health
insurance and facing a penalty if they don't sign up for ObamaCare.


This was a ruthless move by Obama to artificially bump his
all-important first-year numbers by removing the incentive for employers
to offer health insurance, which cornered employees into enrolling in
ObamaCare.


4. ObamaCare's Effect On the Unemployed and Under-Employed


While it is a sad thing that ObamaCare means that who-knows-how-many
small businesses can't expand their workforce in a way that benefits
everyone, the real victims are the who-knows-how-many unemployed and
under-employed who won't be hired for full-time jobs by these companies.


ObamaCare has been the law of the land for three-plus years , and for
just as long our economy has been adding 7 part-time jobs for every
full-time job. This can't be a coincidence. As soon as ObamaCare was passed, employers saw the writing on the wall and planned accordingly.


5. The Working Poor are Getting Hammered


The stories of the hundreds of thousands among the working poor losing their employer-based health insurance and having their hours cut, all due to ObamaCare, are everywhere.
But the media intentionally refuse to do anything other than dutifully
cover these individual stories. Were they to focus on this horrific
consequence that is disproportionately affecting the working poor, it
would likely turn even more people against ObamaCare -- something the
media just aren’t going to allow to happen.



While the media's coverage of the rolling disaster that is the
ObamaCare launch is both welcome and appropriate, what the media will
not cover is what is now and is always going to be the real ObamaCare
disaster: the economic chaos ObamaCare is forcing millions upon millions
of everyday Americans to needlessly pay for and deal with.


And the people callously being thrown into this maelstrom aren't The
Wealthy, aren't Mitt Romney, aren't the Top 1%, aren’t even Tea Partiers
-- they are the very people Obama repeatedly promised could keep their
insurance and that he would never tax: the working poor and the middle
class.

    There is method to Disaster and Creep's madness. We the People, I believe, are being incited by Our government into revolt. Obamacare was designed to fail and that's only a piece of the puzzle. Consider the many other manufactured failures coming from D.C., the blame games, the military purge, etc... A civil war would benefit the global elite's financiers just fine and dandy, no?

    We all know that at some point in every president's term they lie to us. For example, any president isn't going to gone on TV and say that the probability of there being "suitcase nukes" on our own soil is almost a certainty. There'd be nationwide panic. But this man, and I'm using the word man loosely, has taken lying to a whole other level. He's pathological. He'd probably lie about insignificant things like how much he could bench or how many hours of sleep he gets a night. He really must think that this country is just full of gullible morons that will lap anything he says up like a dog to its water bowl. Its f'ing offensive. And the fact that he has a 39% approval rating, as mentioned below by a fellow Sodahead, is baffling. He insults the wealthy as if they did something wrong by being successful, and fails do deliver on ANY promises to the middle and lower class. So who in their right mind is still saying "yes we can" because no you haven't and you never will. This man was the perfect candidate for one group and one group only. The shadowy elite and powers that hide behind the curtains that really pull the strings. This man is nothing more than a puppet. A puppet designed to be a beacon of hope and deliver anything but. During his reign, the gap between upper and middle...

During his reign, the gap between upper and middle class has grown exponentially while the gap between middle and lower has shrunk. Which is exactly what they want. A diminished population that is divided into the haves and have not(s). This healthcare fiasco may be the one last thing they wanted to push us over the edge so that Martial Law can be instituted. We've been conned more over the last 10 years than any other point in history and have now been backed into a corner. A corner where some of the laws we vigorously backed under the guise of terror will ultimately work against us when push comes to shove. Laws where the very words I am saying and that others have passionately shared, on this topic as well as others, can be twisted and used to deem us as "threats", thus giving them the right to detain us without any cause. Welcome to the New World Order where truth is gone, accountability is dead, and freedom is certainly no longer free (just like healthcare). If we even make it to the next election with democracy still intact, I can only pray that enough good men and women rise to the occasion and every single one of the 61% percent that disapprove of Obama go out and vote in a whole new crop of patriots, not politicians, because that is what this country sorely needs, LIKE YESTERDAY!

    Watching the O'Reilly Factor is getting really, really frustrating. He makes almost as many excuses for Obama as Ed Schultz does, and he refuses to call him a liar, saying that he probably just mouthed the words his speechwriters wrote. Hardly. First, from the very beginning Obama has viewed himself as a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, so you know that he had enormous input into his speeches. Second, he made that promise/claim dozens of times in all sorts of venues, and accented it in every venue with "Period," and in some with "No matter what" for additional emphasis.



    The idea that it's "only" 5% of Americans who won't be able to keep the health plans that they like because of Obamacare is nonsense. According to NBC News, based on information in the Federal Register, even the Obama administration estimated, back in 2010 when Obama started his "cascade of lies" (thanks to Mark Steyn for that characterization) that 93 million Americans will lose health care plans that they like once the employer mandate kicks in. When employers are faced with the choice of paying for much more expensive health care plans for their employees or paying the "penalty/tax" of $167 a month, probably 1/3 of the cost of the average plan for an individual or less, many, many millions ...
