Democrats Say Pass Extension of
Unemployment Benefits First; Pay Later

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 12/27/2013 10:54:07 AM

Interrupting their vacation on Thursday, two Democrats -- Sen. Jack Reed of R.I. and Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan -- demanded that Republicans go along with a three-month extension of long-term unemployment benefits without immediately paying for them. The cost of a three-month extension is around $6.5 billion. Losing jobless benefits is like being hit by an "economic hurricane," said Rep. Levin, who sits on the House Ways and Means Committee. "And so that's the reason why, in the past -- much more often than not -- there has not been a pay-for.

Another not so subtle Fascist trap. The Rebublicans will cave and allow 3 months extension. Then in the spring the heartless Rebublicans will cave. Then in early fall, extension is campaign issue that takes the focus off Obambicare. Fascist win, Rebublicans can only blame themselves. Fight it now. In a month, nobody remembers but in the fall, the Fascist will still have Obambicare. And the Rebublicans, taking ht heat now, will not provide cover for Dems in the fall. Bite the bullet now. The issue will be long gone by Feb. Obamibcare will still be around in the fall. The focus should be Obambicare and take the heat now instead of the Fall.

The Democrats always want to play the part of political candy men without giving a hoot as to the cost, and are happy to shift the ever increasing costs to Americans who actually do pay taxes. This is just another example of that philophy at work.

At a time of high unemployment the Democrats want to pump a massive number of new foreign workers into the legal US labor market, by some estimates up to 50 million in the next ten years, who would be willing to work for much less then American workers who are trying to maintain their customary US standard of living.

No word where the Democrats are going to find 50 million new jobs to employ all those new foreign workers at a high enough wage where they will not have to be heavily subsidized by social welfare benefits and services, also no word as to how the Democrats intent to insert all those new foreign workers into the US labor market without displacing millions of American workers as employers move to hire the new foreign workers to keep their labor costs and wages as low as possible.

No-No-No-No-NO. The Government should not spend 1 darn cent more than they take in.
and then have Obama spew out his nonsense that the money has been spent so the debt limit must be raised. NO ONE can function logically
or rationally in this environment.

Manchester, New Hampshire — The intra-GOP bloodshed that followed the 2012 elections is far from over, but the activists and officials who came together for an energetic day of speeches from top Republicans here showed an increasing clarity of purpose as the midterm elections gradually near. “To repeal Obamacare, we have to win elections,” New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte said in kicking off the event, dubbed the first inaugural “Freedom Summit” and hosted by two heavyweight conservative non-profits, Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

The latest issue of Al-Qaeda´s Inspire magazine contains an article about using car bombs in U.S. cities as well as abroad during election seasons, both presidential and congressional, as well as on Christmas and New Years Eve. The cities and areas listed in the piece include Washington, D.C., New York, Northern Virginia, Chicago, and Los Angeles. "America is our first target, followed by United Kingdom, France and other crusader countries. As for the field target for the car-bomb, you have places flooded with individuals, e.g. sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gathering."

IRS Warns: Obamacare Tax Must

Americans for Tax Reform, by John Kartch    Original Article

President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obamacare individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

Happy New Year to all you decadent and dictatorial Americans. Yes, I mean you, the people of the United States, where an elite of non-democratic dictators trickles its immorality—and incompetence—down upon the masses. What do I mean? Aren’t you Americans supposed to be free? Sure, you are free: You are free to obey the ukase—that’s an old czarist word for a decree that must be obeyed, or else—of a judge acting on an ideological agenda.

Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate leadership, said Sunday that “the number one issue in the 2014 election is not going to be Obamacare or the deficit. It is going to be who can get the middle class going again, who can expand middle-class incomes, who can create jobs.”(snip) Schumer is honing the Democrats’ message for 2014, when they face mid-term elections that look to be challenging due to the waning popularity of President Barack Obama,...

If A&E decides to ax "Duck Dynasty" at least two other networks are eager to snap up the hugely popular reality show according to TMZ. Merrill Sport, owner of the Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel told the website that he´d be thrilled to pick up the show. "We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech," he said. "...A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don´t like the programming, they need to either let ("Duck Dynasty") go or shut up and pay them."

Late Friday afternoon, Politico Magazine published an update dismantling White House claims that President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held “dozens” of unrecorded one-on-one working meetings over the last three-and-a-half years leading up to Obamacare´s unveiling. The update, written by Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer, refuted Friday comments by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Prevent Blank Check
Bailouts Under Obamacare

It´s become a hallmark of Barack Obama´s presidency that mistakes made by policy makers, businesses, and governments at all levels must be paid for by American taxpayers. This perverse bailout culture is again evident in ObamaCare, which we now know contains a little-known provision that grants the administration a blank check for a taxpayer-funded bailout of insurance companies when ObamaCare fails. When President Obama recently announced his unilateral order to allow health insurers to ignore ObamaCare´s mandates and regulations and keep offering health plans that people wanted to keep, it exposed another fundamental problem in the law which puts American

In business terms, it’s throwing good money after bad. In political terms, it’s Democrats following Barack Obama over the cliff. Reports say key congressional leaders, furious over the interim nuke pact with Iran, are threatening to buck Obama and add more sanctions. Those threats, I believe, will never come to anything. Democrats are afraid to say no to Obama. They’ve never done it and are not likely to start now.

Fifty-five percent of Americans say they disapprove of President Obama´s signature health care law, up from 47 percent who disapproved of it just a few weeks ago, in late October. Approval numbers also dipped in Gallup´s Nov. 7-10 poll: Only 40 percent said they like the law, down from 44 percent in late October. Currently, 73 percent of Democrats, 39 percent of independents, and 8 percent of Republicans approve of the healthcare law.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
