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?

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.

Hillary Clinton today praised a 19-year-old woman who broke down crying at an event today as she revealed that she is an undocumented immigrant. The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here. For the first time publicly I want to say that I’m an undocumented immigrant,” said the woman, named Nova, who quickly began to tear

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Judge Strikes Down Costly
Provision Of Dodd-Frank

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
