JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO: The Affordable Care Act takes effect next month, The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Americans oppose it, believing it will produce damaging results. Fifty-two percent believe the law will raise their health care costs. Is everybody wrong? PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Yes, they are.### OBAMA: The problem we have is that over the last four years billions of dollars have been spent misinforming people about what this law is about. All of the horror stories that were talked about have not come true. It is going to be a good deal

How can that possibly be a "good deal" when the deal means 40 Million freeloaders are added to my bill.

Read the article...especially the last part of it... where Obama says people in the future will ask in essence, "what was all the fuss about?"

Will those people be the elderly who are not allowed by the government to get life-saving healthcare?

Remember... Obama and his thugs lie all the time about Obamacare. Remember when he said if you like your Dr. you can keep him?

Turns out that was a lie.

This is a republic. By definition, the electorate cannot be wrong, ever. However, as in any form of government, the people in the government can be wrong. Obama either does not understand the essential fundamentals of government or, which is probably the case, he understands them but must override them temporarily until he obtains the tyranny which is his goal.

Best line of the article:
“The problem we have is that over the last four years billions of dollars have been spent misinforming people about what this law is about.”

Yeah, NO KIDDING. As a matter of fact, 0-bama, you are STILL spending billions of tax dollars misinforming people about this law. Like right now.

In the face of all of the evidence, too. What an arrogant charlatan.

So if its so good, why don´t congress members and staffers use it? Why are the unions asking for exemptions? Why does McDonalds want an out?
Shouldn´t all these folks lead by example, especially congress so they can tell us how great it is? And how better to uncover any little flaws that need fixing than by being a real user?

The Act is a good deal? And that is why so many employers are seeking exemptions from the Act? And that is why premiums continue to rise? Why 7 of 8 new jobs created are part time and do not fall under the Act? Really if this Act is such a good deal, why are employers seeking exemptions, insurers raising premiums, and employees unable to find full time jobs with benefits? Make the case!

"A Good Deal" for the Liar-in-Chief´s SOCIALIST LEGACY. A MAJORITY of Americans are against ObamaCare, but "The Man Who Is Never Wrong" knows what´s best for us by virtue of his community organizing background and the advice of Czar Sebelius.
If he did not look upon his "reign" as a Kingship, he might realize that he is supposed to understand that he is the peoples´ representative. But, if you are King, the people are puny little serfs to be managed and controlled by your superior intellect.

If 0bama thinks 0bamacare is great deal, why is his family exempt from this awful healthcare. Why has congress exempted themselves and their staff from having to use 0bamacare. 0bama should be forced to use his own healthcare; he would not stand for it. Like 0bama is all for public schools, and he readily promotes public school, yet, he sends his girls to a $40,000 a year private school. Is anyone really listening to this man?

Important question:

Mrs. Obama´s mother lives in the White House.. (why was that allowed to happen?)..but I digress.

Since she doesn´t work... will Mrs. Obama´s mother be under Obamacare?

Has any reporter anywhere done any investigation of that question?

Does he really think no one has read this law? I bet he´s never even read it. He only wanted the power that came with it and left the details to the lobbyists and evil democrats.

The facts cannot be disputed that this law is going to hurt and kill many, many people. Already people´s hours have been cut, and employers are not hiring full time. Our kids will not realize what full-time work is unless this law is totally repealed. We will be taxed up the wazoo and the wait to see a doctor will be phenomenal. It cannot be stated harshly enough how bad this law is.

George Clooney has confessed to calling Las Vegas gambling mogul Steve Wynn an ´a**hole´ and storming off at a recent dinner because the casino-owner insulted President Barack Obama. The verbal assault occurred two weeks ago when the two-time Oscar winner was in Vegas promoting his Casamigos tequila, and was invited to dine with Wynn and his wife, Andrea Hissom, at the fancy Botero restaurant inside the 72-year-old´s Encore hotel. But when dinner was finished, the conversation turned to Obama´s Affordable Care Act, of which Wynn is a vocal opponent. That´s when sparks began to fly. Clooney immediately took exception to how the billionaire

A prominent Japanese politician has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it´s an ´open secret´ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan´s parliament, earned his PhD a half-mile from the White House at George Washington University, and emerged as a shrill commentator on America´s economy and foreign policy. In 2009 he also joined the ranks of the so-called ´birthers,´ arguing in a book titled ´Who is Obama?´

WASHINGTON — The principle that all Internet content should be treated equally as it flows through cables and pipes to consumers looks all but dead. Companies like Disney, Google or Netflix will be allowed to pay Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon for special, faster lanes to send video and other content to their customers under new rules to be proposed by the Federal Communications Commission, the agency said on Wednesday. The proposed rules are a turnaround for the agency on what is known as net neutrality — the idea that Internet users should have equal ability to see any legal

The federal student loan program is becoming so costly to taxpayers that even President Obama is pretending to fix it. Readers will recall Mr. Obama as the man who has spent much of his Presidency expanding this program, creating new ways for borrowers to avoid repayment, and then campaigning about these dubious achievements on campuses nationwide. Now Team Obama is acknowledging that his policies are turning out to be more expensive than he claimed. Participation in federal debt-forgiveness programs is surging. In a mere six months the number of borrowers who´ve signed up for such plans has increased to more than

The Affordable Care Act´s Independent Payment Advisory Board has been so heavily criticized for being an unaccountable body with the power to effectively ration Medicare services that many congressional Democrats no longer support it. IPAB´s bureaucratic cousin—the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation—deserves the same treatment. Both institutions are in place to preserve rather than reform Medicare´s traditional, and broken, fee-for-service Medicare program. They both also embrace the ObamaCare technocratic mind-set. IPAB´s 15 supposed experts (yet to be nominated by the Obama administration) are charged with governing a program with more than 50 million enrollees. The unstated yet clear agenda is to

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday that immigrants living in the United States illegally are not going home, and that the U.S. has no practical way of forcing them to leave. "They´re not going home. And so why don´t we give them a path to citizenship," McCain asked at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy Jr. forum. "There are not enough buses to deport them," he added. "It´s de facto amnesty." The senator, who has pushed for immigration reform, said once Congress passes legislation he believes it will be named after the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.).

BOSTON – Hillary Clinton reiterated Wednesday that her darkest time as secretary of state was the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. Clinton, in a speech to more than 3,000 people at a women’s leadership conference here, called the attack and loss of lives “very, very painful” and “certainly the biggest regret that I have as secretary of state.” She noted that she had taken responsibility for security at the diplomatic outpost, where Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died, and had pledged to do everything she could to ensure a similar tragedy won’t happen again.

New Eric Cantor Ad Looks Desperate

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is attacking his GOP primary opponent with a new television ad, a highly unusual move for a sitting member of House leadership that demonstrates he is taking the threat from his right back home more seriously than past months. The ad criticizes his opponent, Randolph-Macon economics professor David Brat, for a tangential association with former Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, who proposed raising taxes while he was in office. But a top Virginia official says the association is fleeting at best. “College professor David Brat is running against our conservative congressman Eric Cantor,” a narrator reads to kick

In The Nation magazine MSNBC host Christopher Hayes spent thousands of words and four web pages explaining how those working at preventing global warming are somehow just like the abolitionists who fought to free the slaves just prior to the American Civil War. Calling it a "new abolitionism," Hayes opens his article rehashing the South´s "peculiar institution," pegging its long life to "so much goddamn money." Then he segues into likening today´s global warming alarmists to those moralists and abolitionists of old. After 11 paragraphs of making this comparison, Hayes then weakly states, "So before anyone misunderstands my point, let me be

One oddity of the current economic debate is that the more Barack Obama´s incompetent income-redistribution policies have failed, the more the left calls for more government-intervention policies to correct for the deficiencies of the earlier rounds. American middle-income families have lost nearly $3,000 in purchasing power since 2007, and the left´s only solution to get us out of the rut is more debt, more social-welfare spending, more income redistribution and higher taxes on the rich and big business. That´s the conclusion of French economist Thomas Piketty, whose new book called "Capitalism in the 21st Century" is suddenly the new rallying cry

The Cliven Bundy case in Nevada provides many insights into the state of our nation with respect to the relationship between the people and the government. The Bundys appear to be honorable American citizens without adequate legal counsel to help resolve a federal land issue about which they disagree with the Bureau of Land Management. Without question, they violated some of the innumerable laws and regulations that continue to entangle every aspect of American life. Their violations certainly could have been handled through a multitude of less brutal means than those employed by the federal government, which through the mouthpiece of Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
