Just before the last election the unemployment number did a miraculous nosedive. At the time I along with many others (most of them, unlike me, are known entities) stated that the numbers were not real. We pointed out that nothing added up and that it would be nearly impossible for such a swing to happen. We pointed out that the other indicators did not support the unemployment number.
The left crowed about how wonderful it was and that Obama’s vision was finally proving true. All hail Obama.
Of course the number had to come down because people are not reelected to the presidency with high unemployment numbers.
Now we have a story that the Census folks (those paid to do the unemployment data gathering) fudged the numbers to help Obama. Sources claim that people were told to do so in order to help Democrats, particularly Obama.
This is illegal and the person or persons involved, from those who did it to those who ordered it, should all be prosecuted.
But these folks were good little SS troops following orders just like those at the IRS who targeted conservative/TEA Party groups prior to the election.
Anything for the Dear Leader….
The road to hell is paved with liberal policies…
Never surrender, never submit.
Nov 5, 2013 Obamacare
And he is now lying to cover the lie…
There is no getting around the facts and the facts show that Barack Obama lied to everyone about being able to keep insurance plans and doctors. As Marc Thiessen points out, Obama’s people knew the statement that if you like your insurance plan you can keep it was a lie. Obama and his regime took the decision to keep telling the lie in order to get Obamacare passed and in order to keep momentum while it was being implemented.
Barack Obama is now out telling people he never really said if you liked your plan you could keep it. He is telling people that what he really said was if you like your plan and it has not changed since the law was passed, well then you could keep it.
This is a lie to cover up the first lie and that is ALL that it is. Obama lied to people on nearly 30 occasions when he told them that if they liked their plan they could keep it. He did not provide a caveat. In fact he emphasized his statement by adding the word PERIOD to the end. The truth is he made the statement and he made it an absolute by adding the word period to the end. He further stated that no one will take it away NO MATTER WHAT which further cements the statement as an absolute.
“If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”
Is there any way that any reasonable person could listen to this and conclude that there were ways to lose a plan that was liked? Is there anyway a person who heard this would think well I might lose my plan if it changes?
The answer is no because Obama and his team decided to lie in order to get what he wanted and to keep Obamacare rolling.
Let me be clear again, Barack Obama LIED. He did not misspeak, he did not make a mistake he was not in error, he LIED, PERIOD and the fact he lied will not change, no matter what [he now says] (see how I did that).
His people knew that Americans would lose insurance coverage and Obama knew that people would lose coverage. They decided to lie about it.
That claim is not supported by his videotaped statements, which don’t include any mention of his new “if it hasn’t changed” exception.
Obama LIED. [Here is another video of Obama LYING]
Democrats are entirely responsible for Obamacare so they are just as culpable as Obama for the lies. Not once did any Democrats stand up and tell us that Obama was not being truthful. None of the Democrats who are now pushing for a delay to Obamacare’s individual mandate stood up and supported that when Republicans wanted it during the budget negotiations. The refusal of Democrats to speak up led to the government being shutdown. The Democrats who shutdown government for political reasons while neglecting constituents are now calling for a delay to save their own careers. Keep that in mind when you vote next November.
We now have Democrats pushing for a law that basically says if you liked your insurance you can keep it despite Obamacare. These Democrats are pushing to solve a problem that they helped to institute. They are pushing to do something to help the millions of people who are losing their insurance despite Obama’s promises because they are worried how it will affect them in next year’s election.
Here is a question for you. If Obama always said that you could keep your plan if it has not changed (which he is now claiming despite the evidence to the contrary) then why would Democrats need to introduce legislation to allow people to keep their plans? If Obama was above board then all of this should not matter.
Answer: Obama LIED and he is now trying to cover the lie with another lie. Democrats in Congress are trying to cover their asses by introducing legislation to undo what Obama swore would not happen.
The sad thing is that there are still members of the media who support Obama and cover his lies. The sadder thing going on is that there are people in this country who still believe Obama and now believe him when he says he never told them they could keep their insurance PERIOD. They believed the old lie and now they believe the new one.
Here is what Obama should have said:
If I like your insurance you can keep it.
It would have been accurate. It would have reflected what Obama and his people knew all along and isn’t that how tyrants are supposed to talk anyway?
Never surrender, never submit.
Oct 28, 2013 Obamacare
The Obamacare website is a dismal failure. It has crashed and burned from the moment it went live and there is no doubt that it was not ready for prime time. The Republicans worked to get the individual mandate delayed for a year but Democrats would not negotiate. They flat out said no and that a delay would NOT happen.
Now, of course, a bunch of them are working hard to get that very delay so that they will not suffer on Election Day next year.
The partial shutdown took attention away from the Obamacare roll out but now that the government is back to 100% the focus is more on the Obamacare failure. Even Saturday Night Live took a shot at the failed roll out.
Imagine how much pressure would have been taken off this mess if Democrats had been willing to negotiate. Imagine how much less of a sting there would have been if they would have agreed to delay the individual mandate. People would not have been pressured to sign up and the regime could work to get the thing fixed.
The bull headed approach the Democrats took is now biting them in their posteriors.
Now that they insisted that things go forward they are seeing that over 600 MILLION taxpayer dollars were wasted to write a program that uses old technology and is full of security holes. A friend of Michelle Obama is prominent in the company that received the no bid contract to produce the website and it looks like they will get even more money to work on fixing the garbage they created.
How much more of OUR money will government throw at this project to get it running correctly?
An article in the New York Post indicates the entire website might have to be scrapped and rebuilt from scratch.
So Obama spends over 600 MILLION dollars on a project that will be scrapped and rebuilt at even more cost to the taxpayer.
Everyone involved in this should be put in jail.
The nightmare for Democrats is that people are becoming frustrated and not signing up. Those who do get through are seeing such huge costs that they are not selecting plans. What this means is that there will not be the millions of young, healthy people paying to provide for the older and less healthy among us.
Obamacare is going to cost multiples of what they told us and it will collapse under its own weight.
This is by design as Obama wants a single payer system but will anyone with a brain (excludes his supporters) actually trust him after he failed to deliver on his signature plan?
I have been reading about all the liberals who have had their insurance cancelled and have discovered how much more they will have to pay under Obamacare and I find it funny that they are surprised. They seem to think they can keep their plans like Obama promised and they are surprised to find out they are paying more to support others. To a person they exclaim how excited they were to have Obamacare pass so that everyone could have insurance but that they did not think THEY would be paying for it.
Typical liberals, no idea where money comes from and perfectly happy giving stuff away as long as they don’t have to pay.
I hope they end up eating cat food so they can suffer for their foolishness.
You see, pain is a great teacher and these folks need to suffer.
One last thing. If you think the roll out is a mess wait until you have to actually get care. That will make the roll out look like a stroll in the park.
When things like this happen people always say “I hate to say I told you so.” I don’t feel that way.
I take joy in saying I told you so…

Well, well, well, it looks like the highly paid members of Congress are in talks to exempt themselves and their staff from Obamacare. Yes, the must have health care law that was forced upon the American public is deemed too costly for members of Congress and their staff but the constituents, those who pay their salaries and for whom they work, are not so lucky.
This is another example of the good enough for you but not for me. Yes America, your employees in Congress think this is too costly for them to afford with their nearly 200,000 dollar a year salaries.
Those of us who make far less than that are stuck with it. The logic here seems to be that Congress members and their staff are unable to afford this and DC might lose the brain power (that ship has already sailed) so they need an exemption BUT it matters not how it affects the rest of us because our overlords have decided it is best for us.
Senator McConnell says he is not involved in the talks and believes all Americans should be exempt. Well Senator, you guys there have the ability to defund this monstrosity so have at it.
If the Democrats give you a hard time ask them why they too are on board with the exemption. Hell, they should be happy to rid themselves of this before the next election.
Be aware Decepticons in Congress, the public is watching. A huge majority did not want this to begin with and if you deem yourselves too important to be burdened by this we will unburden ourselves of your presence in Congress.
Keep in mind that the SCOTUS ruled that Obamacare was a tax. So not only did Obama raise taxes on EVERYONE, Congress is now trying to exempt itself from that tax.
Pay attention to Maryland for an idea of how the cost will affect the rest of us…
Never surrender, never submit.
The bad news this week was that Obama was “reelected” by a majority of the morons in this country. The corruption ran deep from illegal votes to deliberately keeping the military from having their votes counted, if they even got to vote. It sucks but it is what it is and we are stuck with Obama for the next four years.
Yes, that is bad news but there is more bad news on the horizon. A lot of companies have begun laying off employees and many cite the reelection of Obama and his signature “achievement” Obamacare. Coal workers, hospitality workers, defense contractors, and other larger companies are telling workers they no longer have jobs. Michelle Malkin calls it the layoff bomb and yes, that bomb has exploded.
We know that Obama and his minions forced companies affected by the budget mess that will occur in January to keep from sending out layoff notices in direct violation of the law so it would help him politically. I wonder how many of those folks who voted for Obama will end up in the welfare line?
Business owners were waiting until the outcome of the election before taking decisions on their future. If Mitt Romney had won they would start hiring and would work to build their businesses which would have helped to strengthen the economy.
But they got Obama instead and now they are taking tough decisions to keep from being hurt by Obama and Obamacare. The manipulated unemployment numbers from last month will receive a correction this month and Obama will again have higher unemployment. It is part of his plan to force the masses into his Socialist dream.
You folks who voted for him and have no job, tough. You deserve to be on the side of the road with a sign begging for food.
Those who did not vote for him and are hurt by this I am sorry for you but you know how to survive. look for conservative business owners and talk to them.
If you are a conservative business owner, consider firing your employees who voted for Obama and hiring people who did not.
Never surrender, never submit.
