From the beginning of his term as President of the United States it was a series of deceptions aimed at naïve Americans who elected him – hoping for change.
ObamaCare was pushed through quickly, and as Nancy Pelosi
…pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.
Pass the bill BEFORE you find what is in it, not that enough Americans could understand it that have been educated in government-run/trade union schools.
Obama in September 2009 stated to a joint session in Congress:
Now, add it all up, and the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.
Reminiscent of GW Bush’s “fuzzy math”.
This week the Congressional Budget Office updated their earlier report covering a ten year period of ObamaCare being fully in place with an estimated cost of $1.76 trillion – twice as what Obama told Congress and nation. The true figures won’t be out until next year without the Supreme Court throwing it out or being repealed by Congress that will surpass the $2 trillion mark. Hopefully the Supreme Court justices will make that decision, hard to say with one of them criticizing our Constitution on foreign public TV interview.
If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan– again in 2009.
Obama and his cohorts insisted that this program was not a takeover of personal health care, but for the uninsured. The Hill reports differently:
Four million Americans can expect to lose their employer-provided healthcare by 2016, according to revised figures, far more than the 1 million people estimated last year.
That number will probably increase as employers find it necessary or more favorable to drop coverage and pay penalty because it will be cheaper. That means higher taxes.
Under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortion, and federal conscience laws will remain in place. – State of Union address in 2009.
The Department of Health and Human Services has completed a rule this week that establishes state health care exchanges, and those plans will collect from each premium payer a $1 surcharge to fund abortions. Of course, if abortion is being funded now, what makes people think that taxpayers won’t continue to pay for it? Of course, there will be accounting tricks to go around the Hyde Amendment that prohibits direct taxpayer funding of abortion. But government is good at finding loopholes because we keep electing lawyers in political office.
It is extremely important, folks, that we continue to hound our senators and representatives about the ObamaCare program and its unconstitutionality. It must be either removed by the order of the Supreme Court or repealed in accordance to constitutional law. President Obama has been busy devising strategies to get public support – but too many Americans have awaken from their apathetic slumber or learned about his political lawyer tricks. On March 26ththere will be a Supreme Court hearing. Those that support this atrocity of legislation will be holding a prayer vigil – probably to their government god.
The Washington Postand The New York Timeshas frequently reported (and formed opinion, of which neither media knows the difference) – that the Republican Party is losing women because of its policy against free contraception. Meanwhile, Obama’s approval rating drops according to the Washington Post and ABC Newspolls by four points – especially after he stuck his nose into the Sandra Fluke affair. And, after stating that women are leaving the GOP in droves, The New York Timeshas noted that there has been a drop in female support for Obama.
A “profound” statement from Obama:
When we start using religion as a bludgeon in politics, we start questioning other people’s faith, we start using religion to divide, instead of bringing the country together, then I think we’ve got a problem.
Yes, Mr. Obama, the problem is you, Nancy Pelosi, your Attorney General, your Czars, your progressive democratic-socialism, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
In other news …
Two Democrats introduced a freedom of the Second Amendment bill – and I am NOT joking.
Senator Mark Begich(D-AK) and Senator Joe Manchin(D-WV) introduced S. 2188 – the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012that is a companion bill to H.R. 822, which passed the House of Representatives last November by a vote of 272-154. This legislation, if passed, will permit any concealed-carry permit holder to carry a concealed handgun in any other state of the Union that also issues permits. Which means, any other state except Illinois, and in lesser degrees in others.
Voter identification has been used in part of the voter identification process in many state elections, but the Department of Justice has blocked a voter identification law in Texas because it claims that it unjustly restricts minority voting rights as outlined in Section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The same thing happened to the South Carolina voter ID law, which the state is currently fighting in federal court as I write this.
The DOJ used statistical gymnastics to claim that the Lone Star State’s law discriminates against Hispanics, claiming that Hispanics were 46.5 percent more likely than non-Hispanics to lack proper voter ID.
Maybe it is because “Hispanics” without driver’s licenses are statistically illegal aliens. Duh!
Folks, it is all about getting votes – whether they are legally able to do so or not. The political club that sticks up for illegal aliens is the party that will get their vote – and any sympathizers along the way. Plain and simple. It is why RINOs in the GOP, who call themselves “moderates” – you know, like “progressives” used to be “liberals” thing.
…the United Nations Human Rights Council is also looking into U.S. Voter ID laws, so the whole matter will no doubt be resolved satisfactorily once the likes of China, Cuba, Libya, and Saudi Arabia weigh in.
As the American Thinker(Rick Moran) wrote – and I agree and wrote about it in past:
The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely. … Eight states have passed voter ID laws in the past year, voter ID proposals are pending in 32 states and the Obamaadministration has recently moved to block South Carolina and Texas from enacting their voter ID measures.
Enuff said, for now.
