President Obama apologizes to
Americans who are losing
their health insurance

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/7/2013 10:28:48 PM

President Obama apologized Thursday to Americans who are losing their health insurance despite his repeated promises that they wouldn’t, an unusual act of contrition for a president who has come under heavy criticism for misleading the public. “I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me,” Obama said in an interview with NBC News. “We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and that we’re going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as

I´m sure he´s ´working hard´ to ´make sure´ Americans who lost their insurance knows he hears them. Big deal.

He may well hear them, but he considers them chumps.

Translation: I am sorry I got caught. This is holding up amnesty and I need to stay in campaign/fund raising mode for 2014.

So what are you going to do about the sick people in this country that need coverage ?
Can they rescind their votes ?

Unreal....

...“because, you know, my intention is to lift up and make sure the insurance that people buy is effective — that it’s actually going to deliver what they think they’re purchasing.”

HE is going to be the final arbiter of whether or not YOU buy effective insurance. Who the hell made him MY decision-maker about MY body and MY insurance?

The very premise that HE is making decision about MY decisions is truly slimy. Not to mention that even this promise -- to make sure WE buy "effective" insurance is another lie.

So he´s sorry so many people are "finding themselves in this situation"? What, did those millions of people suddenly wake up one morning, minding their own business, and just "found themselves" without insurance because of something they did?

He tries hard to say "based on assurances they got from me" but that´s exactly right. When they voted, they were "assured by him" that they could keep their policies, keep their doctors, but suddenly it´s THEIR fault they "found themselves" uninsured?

What a weasel, to say the least. Next time you look at him talking on TV, think 666.

What an odd comment. People aren´t finding themselves in this situation ´based on assurances´ they got from Obama. They are in this situation based on a terrible law shoved down our throats by every Democrat in Congress and against the wishes of the American people. Obama lied about this on 29 separate occasions to win re-election. Period.

And the little Fascist despot has asked his staff to figure out how he can once again break the very law he made in an arbitrary and capricious manner. Laws are only used to suppress the ´right´ Americans. When the law threatens the Fascist Despot´s voters, he ignores the Constitution and grants some favor. All this is is another opportunity in this target rich law for Obambi to transform this country into his fascist regime.

Ted Cruz is the answer to the problems of this nation. If you have any doubts about the truth of that statement, watch this video recently posted on YouTube of Cruz’s recent address to the Heritage Foundation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mE59UVohG4

The video is rather long – almost 45 minutes – but the 7 minute section starting at 32 minutes into the tape is all you need to understand why this man must be our next President.

Obama is incapable of apologizing. He may say a few words that will make his devotees swoon but the vast majority recognize his behavior if they have ever raised a child. A child misbehaves, the parent corrects him and prompts him to say "I´m sorry" and the kid, under his breath says, "sorry". An adult who is sorry for his behavior will try and make amends after giving a sincere apology. Instead Obama murmurs, "sorry" and runs out to play. Pathetic actions for a man much less the President of the United States.

Marxists value the cause of the state above the cause of the individual. That is why in Cambodia you can kill 1 million political dissenters. In the Solviet Union and Cuba you can send opposers to the Gulag. In North Korea and China you can sentnce dissenters to a lifetime in a work camp. In Venezuela you can seize private farms and take over the media.

Obama knows exactly what he is doing.

Remember the creature who told his monkeys at the time he shut down government....´I want WTP to suffer, feel my wrath." The same dude who had his minions with monkey wrenches taking the handles from water fountains, barry-cades around our WH, barry-cades around memorials and denying our Veterans their just due. The mulatto punk knows not how to beg forgiveness, to make an apology. He has never had to do so in his lifetime. He did not do so this time.

And the saga continues: ANOTHER (supposed) change of course. Note that he is no longer saying that the policies people had were lousy (as the N.J. Pallone was fond of saying) and those who signed up must have been idiots, OR that he will talk to nasty insurance companies and make sure they DON´T drop the people with stage 4 cancer etc., or even that stupid people just don´t understand that what he was REALLY saying 29 times (repeated by his surrogates over and over) is that you must go to Obamacare if even $5 of policy is change after the ACA was signed--never mentioning that Obamacare MANDATED (oops...taxed) the policies MUST be dropped.

Plus, how does Obama have time to "work hard" to clear this up, when he is also working hard (no one is angrier than he) to clear up the IRS, Fast & furious, Benghazi, the NSA AND making nice with the Iranians, who must be laughing their butts off. Plus, note that Obama´s INITIAL response was that the rollout mess affected HIM, and then he included us, hastily. Same old same old!

Well we all know he could never say he lied. He is about as likely to say "lie" as Arthur Fonzarelli was to say, "love", as in, "L, L, L, L". Notice he did not make any personal assurances, just "have my staff look into an executive solution". Sure. His theories have boxed him in and his anecdotes are not to be believed. Think "sacrifice of the individual for the good of the whole", like what is in Common Core curriculum.

so two or three days ago he said he didn´t mislead us, not he´s saying he did. I´m sorry, but if you voted for this guy and Obamacare is screwing you over, I have no sympathy. Suffer! But Obamacare has been screwing me over since 2010 so that by 2013, I couldn´t afford my health insurance anymore. And because he waived the employer mandate (under what authority, I don´t know. didn´t realize he was a dictator) , my company which was going to cover me and my family starting january, now isn´t. But I didn´t vote for him. I didn´t believe his lies. But I have to pay for all you "hope and change" ignoramuses that foisted this preposterous jackass on us for EIGHT years of destruction.

I guess that some of the Senators around him whose sons/daughters lost their insurance talk to this little Obamie.

Notice that he used the pronoun we when he offered his excuse. Perhaps the number of people who will die because of this idiotic plan finally dawned on him. What are the people who lost their health program who are seriously ill, cancer patients, children - will he call up and identify a dead child as his own and how he would feel? This man is pure evil.

obama´s response is just more rhetoric. While obama engages in this "token" apology, the patient protection and affordable care act continues its toxic effects on America.

If obama is really sorry, then prove it by repealing obamacare. But many of us know that obamadoesn´tcare.
For the socialist utopia to continue, this health law must never be repealed.

He is a citizen only. This is the problem with Obambi. The Constitution establishes the rule of law of our country and if we defile it we become a lawless society subject to all manner of dictators.

A half-assed apology from a half-assed president. He was forced to do something because the entire country is starting to laugh at him (see CMA Awards show - never been much of a Carrie Underwood fan, but she just went up a few notches in my book), but this was the best he could do? I apologize if my not buying your apology hurts your feelings, Barry.

More Big Obama, little you. He wants to see what they can do administratively to change the law. Not pursue a legal remedy in the old fashioned, Constitutional way. But through his magnanimous spirit; his generous gestures; his soaring words of apology, HE will do what HE can so that the MASSES will ADORE HIM and PRAISE HIS name. Sounds Messianic doesn´t it?

That was an apology? All I heard was that whistling sound he makes with his teeth when he speaks and lies.
Well that doesn´t bring back my insurance and doctor who he told me I could keep which I liked and had been very nice to me. As a cancer survivor and patient at MD Anderson, Houston Texas what´s the replacement you stupid lying...no more words.
This is like getting hit by a drunk, illegal Mexican with no insurance or license and he apologizes then walks away scott free. I´m stuck with the damages of the wreck.
This is a clueless communist cabal we have as an administration that has wrecked a perfectly good insurance and medical industry for what? Some votes and political reasons while the Republicans sit on the bench whistling Dixie while to is happening.

If the president is truly sorry, he will keep his word, and Americans will be able to keep their insurance. If that´s asking too much, we need to know right now. It won´t change the past election, but it will have a huge impact the next one.

Only the most brain dead among us (Obama voters) would still believe ANYTHING this doofus says. That´s right Obamabots I´m calling you out. The only reason that this fool is even making the half-hearted attempt is because his poll numbers are in the toilet. He might have gotten away with this crap if he was president during the time of say Kennedy but with Fox News, talk radio and the internet Obungler´s flack is there for all to see. Oh and I´m not a Brad Paisley or a Carrie Underwood fan by any means but you have to admit their little skit about Odumbocare was very funny.

Obama saying that he is sorry that people find themselves in this situation is just another one of his lies. If he was truly sorry, then he would try to undo what he has done, but he won´t even try to undo Obamacare.

Mose Bovine Excrement from the ´guy who parses´ everything he does. This was nothing but another Passive-Aggressive attempt to deflect blame, from the pREZ; who for 5 years has done noting to accept the consequences of any actions, Except to suck up light from the heroics of others.

Lie, upon lie, upon lie .
First, the same lie videoed dozens of times,
Then, a lie, modification, qualifying the previous lies.
And now, this "sorry", not "I´m sorry", but they´re sorry.
A lost lying soul so deep in denial, that we must watch him with clinical accuracy, because it is obvious he will now do something, or attempt to do something, that is even more damaging, destructive, horrifying, to the both the good and the bad citizens of America.

Imagine going to a high school where everyone has to wear the same size uniform (3XXX), but you bought your uniform before school began and did not know the new rule. No matter, you must get rid of your uniform, which was a perfect fit, and buy the 3XXX size to abide by the school rules. That´s, basically, what Obamacare is all about.

How could the creators of ObamaCare ever, ever believe that people would possibly choose to buy one-size(3XXX)-fits-all health insurance? It never made sense.

No wonder Obama opted out, as well as anyone else with any brains in their head.

Now is the time to loudly, not timidly, re-open Sheriff Joe´s brilliant forensic findings on Barry Soetoro´s highly
questionable, badly constructed birth certificate.

Nose is the time to honor all Benghazi witnesses, and openly offer them career, life and bodily harm protection
In exchange for stepping forward to give witness.

Now is the time to go to Harlem pastor, James D Manning´s website and YouTube and hear from a Hawaiian high school friend of foreign student
Barry Soetoro, and his drug taking and three gay friends who have all been murdered.

Now is the time to concentrate on press and media lies,
And all those providing protection for the imposter, who is the Liar in Chief !

Sounds like a teenage kid caught sneaking into the house, slightly drunk, and very much past the assigned curfew of 11pm. "Gee, dad, I´m sorry you didn´t understand me when I said I was going out until all the other guys headed home. Didn´t you hear me? I thought I was clear I´d be a bit late. Whatever."

What happens next? In the case of your kid, your choice. In the case of Obama? Absolutely nothing! Everyone just suck it up. We had several chances to kill Obamacare and we flopped each time. Now we all have to live with it.

This was as weak an apology as he could give. One is left with the impression that he was a surprised as anybody that his promises were not kept.

He then made a promise to do something about it. So far the only things he has done is blame the insurance companies for cancelling policies that did not meet the dictates of Obamacare and blame the victims for having "crappy" policies. Somehow I don´t believe this is what people expect when he said he would do something.

After all, Big Brother, knows what is best for you. You are too ignorant to know so you must be forced by your betters to do the right thing. That´s what Progress government is all about.

Democrats are enjoying the deceit and the hurt Obama´s lies have purposely caused. They view it all as a necessary stepping stone to Our Glorious Socialist Future. And they will be dishing out a lot more deceit and a lot more hurt, with fewer and fewer "apologies". But the thing is, they are enjoying this, and smirking.

One thing is for sure, this Obama Care is going down hill in a free fall and if the Republicans have any smarts they will let it go, and not get in the way with some stupid policy designed to delay it and thus bail Obama and the liberal Democrats out before the 2014 election.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
