Another vacation? Another golf outing. Another basketball game. Another date night.
Exactly when does the little priss plan to get focused on the economy?
He was elected to address the economy and spent the last six weeks of the campaign claiming he would do just that. Now he's finished up two years in the White House and unemployment is actually higher than it was, costs are rising and exactly what does Barack do besides pose for covers and give endless interviews?
Last year, a number of banks failed, continuing a trend. This year? Did you miss today's big economic news:
Exactly when does Barack plan to get to work?
And, if you missed it, the truth about ObamaCare is no longer whispered -- it's right out there. This is from John Walsh's "ObamaCare -- Worse Than You Thought" (Dissident Voice):
Prod a Democrat Party loyalist on the shortcomings of ObamaCare and you are likely to get two retorts: come 2014 at least everyone will be covered; and from the moment when Obama signed the law pre-existing conditions can no longer be used by the insurers to deny coverage. It turns out, however, that neither of these claims is true.
Let’s take universal coverage first. It turns out that in 2016, two years into full implementation of ObamaCare, there may be 30-40 million Americans sans coverage. From whence and whom comes such a number? No less than Dr. Robert Kocher, former special assistant to Obama on health care who directed the simulations to get these numbers in his new post at McKinsey and Co., an international consulting company. The simulations involved a detailed county by county analysis across the country.
Asked who would remain uninsured, Kocher replied: “There will always be a residual pool of uninsured that includes the following populations: undocumented [foreigners], people between jobs, those who may lose coverage from either changes in income [or from] rolling off of Medicaid. Also, the [people whose employer-based coverage] was dropped but who haven’t yet purchased insurance; those eligible and not enrolled in Medicaid; and those [who have not enrolled in insurance] by choice.”
Two more years of this crap. That's the good news. We made it through Bush, we can make it through Barack. This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Thursday:
