Do we have a constitution?

Mr. Obama has gone all the way now in ripping the fabric of our Constitution, a document created by enlightened men and ratified by freedom-loving citizens of the republic.

Impeachment and then conviction is the only action that can be considered commensurate with his pattern of law-breaking from the Oval Office.

If you are a government fascist seeking to nationalize an entire industry that 86% of the population is happy with just the way it is, you have to LIE, and LIE BIG, and hope enough Americans will believe your lies.

If you are a Liberal who naively believed Barack Obama’s lies about health care, see if you can get through this video without realizing what a fool he made of you.

Kyle Smith of the New York Post wrote a beautiful piece on the cascade of Barack Obama’s lies around Obamacare and so much more.

This piece has it all: A comprehensive indictment against Gruber and fellow Progressive thugs, the summary of all the ways Obamacare is a complete and total fraud, a review of Liberal apologists for Gruber and how ridiculous they make themselves sound, even a nice contrast with the Bush WMD issue.

Oh, and that amazing statistic that fully 86% of Americans were HAPPY with their health insurance and health care THE WAY IT WAS before Obama and his Gruber lies broke it.

Here is a link and a brief excerpt:

The Lies that are Central to Obama’s Agenda

ObamaCare will cut your premiums? By $2,500 a year? And reduce the deficit? While giving gold-plated coverage to tens of millions more people? Who won’t have to pay much? And none of this will result in anyone losing their current plan?

To the average person, Obama sounded like a used-car dealer shouting, “Free Ferrari. Gets 100 miles to the gallon! Did I mention it runs on rainwater?”

Americans didn’t buy it. Never did. At no time has approval for ObamaCare hit 50% in the Gallup poll.

A majority of Americans in 2009 knew that Barack Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” was a sham and did not want it to become law.

Proof positive of this, in addition to polling at the time, was that the “Ted Kennedy Seat” in the Senate went to a Republican candidate from nowhere (Scott Brown). According to exit polls, this special election in Liberal Massachusetts turned out to be a referendum on Obamacare.

Famously, Barack Obama pushed forward on his vicious power grab and spun many more lies in support of getting it through a reluctant Congress, then controlled by Democrats in BOTH houses.

These lies were and still are very costly, but many Liberals to this day believe the lies (shocking as it it to acknowledge this).

But today we have a new entry in the bright sunshine of the truth courtesy of Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber, one of the original architects of Obamacare (The Hill.com, link).

Are you ready for your medicine, Liberals?

Behold what the rest of us have known all along about the people behind the Obamacare charade and have been screaming as loudly as we can:

Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.

If CBO scored the [individual] mandate as taxes, the bill dies.

If you had a law that made it explicit that healthy people are going to pay in and sick people are going to get subsidies, it would not have passed.

It is a kind of ecstasy when a fascist admits to his schemes to enslave a nation — so rare, and so sublime.

I say this because political debate is usually a dead-end. I have many friends and family members with whom I’ve tried to make my case, but no progress can ever be made, it seems. The strength of my arguments gives me the winning hand — after all, I’ve got several thousand years of failed collectivist policies to rely on — but they will not yield, so committed are they to their emotion instead of their reason.

So when a member of their own camp admits the truth about various diabolical actions, it is an elixir, because how can Liberals ignore one of their own, who was on the inside?

Let’s end this post with Barack Obama’s commitment to transparency, in his very own words (from WhiteHouse.gov):

My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

Obama playing golf again while America burns

Pity poor Barack Obama, who beat Mitt Romney in 2012 despite Obama’s blatantly socialist rhetoric (or because of it?) and despite Romney’s superiority on every single aspect of being able to fulfill the role and responsibility of being president of the United States…

Pity him because his two presidential election wins just don’t square in his mind with the 2010 and 2014 Republican landslides against him and his party.

Each time he has failed to blame his destructive policies and instead has chosen to blame what he calls a failure of salesmanship on his and Democrats’ parts: if only they had explained it all more clearly, then voters would have rewarded Democrats instead of smashing them like so many unwanted bums.

But as he has in the past, the president defended the merits of his administration’s policies, blaming the election results on a poor communications effort in the White House.

“There are times, there’s no doubt about it, where, you know I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction,” Mr. Obama said. <New York Times, link>

This is nonsense, of course, because he has been selling his policies hard, nearly 24/7, for many years now, and he has proven himself to be very good at it. So good, in fact, that he swindled enough voters in 2012 to return him to office even though he rewarded Wall Street crooks after the 2008 crisis, bankrupted the U.S. Treasury (taking the debt from $10 trillion to $17 trillion in a $14 trillion economy), weakened our power around the world, alienated our allies, and destroyed American health care.

So what went wrong in the mid-terms for Democrats?

I can explain.

Democrats campaigning for the House of Representatives and the Senate do not have the electoral college to tilt the election in their direction the way Democrats running for president do.

When a Democrat runs for the presidency, he can count on California to vote for him no matter how damaging to the country he may be (Obama certainly proved the point).

Electoral votes map

Just add New York and Illinois and a Democrat is far closer to winning the White House than any Republican candidate can ever hope to be.

Each presidential year, the Republican nominee starts out in a deep hole because of this dynamic, and the consequences are very real: the Obama campaign was able to focus its money and effort in just a few key states, for example slamming Romney hard in Ohio while the Romney campaign was spreading itself thin trying to build momentum in many more states in order to close the electoral gap.

However, no such terrible math exists in congressional elections, particularly those contested in the absence of a presidential campaign and its influence.

The verdict on 2014 and 2010 versus 2012?

Barack Hussein Obama’s policies are wholly and completely rejected by the electorate, and the people of California and New York are powerless to stop this reality.

So, Barry, it’s so sad but so true, that your agenda for America is NOT what this country wants, and the Senate and the House are empowered to hold you accountable during these last two years of your anti-American regime.

I love this statistic for several reasons:

Nearly two thirds of those interviewed after casting ballots said the country was seriously on the wrong track. <Yahoo News, link>

I love it because it is a damning indictment of the Obama regime on every level (“the wrong track” is such a comprehensive phrase — it could mean and does mean all kinds of things).

I love it because it includes the words “seriously on” the wrong track (that is, not just “on the wrong track“, but SERIOUSLY on the wrong track – WOW). I don’t recall this question being put quite that way before.

And I love it because it means that our nation is finally ready to wake up from the Obama delusion — these last six years of cult of personality, in which a man of no leadership experience, mysterious background, and openly anti-American views, ascended to the presidency.

The only question is why those who were polled did not affirm this belief at a 100% level.

I keep reading headlines asking “Is Obamacare working?”, as if the law has not been massively deferred in countless ways by the renegade who occupies the White House. Deferred, of course, because it is not working — not at all — and the unconstitutional delays by Obama are designed to keep Americans blind to the truth of its catastrophic multiple failures.

So far this Orwellian plan to hide its failures in plain sight is working pretty well. But in the meantime, little bits of the law’s disastrous reality peak through here and there…

Case in point: New Hampshire is lately “BEGGING” that the Obamacare Cadillac Tax provision be waived, because if it isn’t, the state’s very generous health care plans for TEACHERS are going to be taxed out of existence.

Government employers in New Hampshire are begging to make changes to avoid the Affordable Care Act’s so-called Cadillac tax when it hits in 2018. <Concord Monitor, link>

I’ll bet Barack Hussein Obama is smiling right now thinking of a state — one of the original 13 colonies no less — “begging” for mercy from the federal government. This is what he lives for, and has worked so hard for.

In case you forgot what the Cadillac Tax is, here is some description from this latest news story, and yes, it is true — this thing actually was put into the Obamacare law, on purpose.

It’s a 40 percent excise tax on all employer-sponsored health plans that cost annually more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family. Because of comparatively rich health plans and the highest regional costs in the country, employers are already worrying about how they can pare down to reach that threshold.

That’s right, this draconian tax will hit such plans so hard that such plans will become extinct (“pare down” is another way of saying “take away benefits”), which is the law’s evil design. Imagine it: a very generous plan, such as the one for New Hampshire’s SCHOOL DISTRICTS, will be destroyed and replaced by, most likely, a high-deductible plan with far worse health coverage for the teachers.

Thanks, Barack Obama.

Lisa Duquette is the executive director of SchoolCare, a nonprofit health insurance provider that partners with Cigna to cover 25,000 in the state. She said most of SchoolCare’s employer groups –schools districts and municipalities – are finding that all of their offered health plans will trigger the tax.
