Watch these workers´ faces as they realize
what ObamaCare does to them

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Barack Obama was in Wisconsin and Tennessee Thursday happy talking about "opportunity." He´s for it, by the way. "It´s good to be in Wisconsin," he told Wisconsin. Few hours later, "It´s good to be in Nashville." In both places he talked about the “opportunity” that comes with jobs and the “opportunity” that comes with education. As a word, "opportunity" polls well. Yet, these days whenever Obama has the opportunity to talk about his signature namesake "achievement," he rarely seizes the opportunity. The enterprising TV news video here shows why.

When your health insurance is as much as your mortgage, and the deductibles are more than you make in 3 months, how is that affordable?

What these people don´t seem to realize is that all those increases in the cost of their health care are ´affordable´ increases! How do I know? It says so in the name of the bill!

obamacare was never meant to be affordable,...it was never meant to " work". It was meant to destroy private health insurance companies and the midle calls.

Apparently Obama and the dems lost their proctology coverage, since their heads remain firmly in the place they´ve been wedged since ACA was passed. See no evil. Hear no evil. Right?

I´m with #5. A majority of us voted for Obama and a Congressional majority of democrats (and rinos). The majority of us deserve this.

Doctors have been talking about congeries patients for a couple of years now. Cash talks louder than Obamacare.

the problem of group association rather than taking the time to read, listen and find out more about candidates provides the platform for you to be used like ponds in a game.

Dear Heavens people, know what you are voting for and stop this association to a group because your parents, friends, or you always voted this way.

This time you were sucked into the ploy, now you are up for another game in 2016. Wake up!!!!

Finally, the masses are waking up! If Congress critters don´t have the b@!!s to issue Articles of Impeachment on Obama, then they better wonder how much longer before torches and pitchforks are coming after them, a la the French Revolution.

People are mad as h&!! and we aren´t going to shut up! America has now had its experiment with a person of color´s incompetency in order to not be called a racist country. There are other minority politicians who are competent who could run for President.

Instead, America got seduced by a charlatan puppet - the strings of which are controlled by a traitor to his own Hungarian Jewsish people. Just as George Soros aided the Nazis as they deported Hungarian Jews to the concentration camps, Obama, in his own way, is a traitor to African Americans because of his policies.

The economic gains African Americans have made since the 60´s have basically been wiped out.
The comparison of Hitler and his thugs to Obama´s regime is warranted, IMHO.

Every American should just be aware of what happens when a would-be dictator tries to thwart freedom and liberty. Pastor Martin Niemoller´s famous words should be kept handy and future Presidents and their Administrations should be judged accordingly:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.


The threatened groups have changed - substitute TEA Party and/or Conservatives for Socialists or others, except the Jews who are still threatened - see Israel.

This is how we solve this.
Come election time.
Do not vote for any incumbent. PERIOD and No Exception. Yes we may lose a couple of good ones but any person picked randomly out of the phone book can do a better job than what we have.
In the general election. Vote straight down the line the Republican ticket. The Democrats gave us this tragedy so let them suffer. In the meantime we can get rid of a few RINOS that have stood by and let this disaster unfold.

People like those in the video are beginning to feel shocked, scared, suckered in, betrayed and worried. You can tell they feel that dreadful sinking feeling in the pit of the stomach when something goes really wrong--or even when someone you love is dying. They also feel remorse for not checking further, for putting their families in harm´s way, for not believing those of us who tried to tell them what would happen.

It´s like grief.

The next stage will be anger and, following, hitting out at who lied to them and caused/is causing their grief and fear. After that will come action. The politicians who supported and/or still support Obamacare will experience losses sufficient for real conservatives--honorable people--to win and serve responsibly in those lost seats. Yes, there will be some voters who still don´t understand what´s happening, who aren´t put in precarious financial straits, but they won´t be enough.

Obama must have thought that the small print wouldn´t be noticed in time, that people would sign up in droves as soon as the portals opened, that they would be trapped in their contract as subscribers to Obamacare when the pitfalls became clear, threatened with IRA action for not complying.

One major factor stopped the gates from slamming shut: unimaginably unworkable software.

It´s an unanticipated breathing space to allow the truth about Obamacare to emerge and spread like Johnny Appleseed´s apple trees.

A poisoned apple from a wicked stepmother put Sleeping Beauty in a deep slumber. Who and where is our Prince?

You voted for Uncle Sugar-Daddy.
You thought you were going to get free goodies
that someone else would pay for.

Welcome to socialism.

The politician says knock off the mountain tops and fill up the valleys,
and you clap and swoon and buy a cartoon.

The bureaucrat says knock off the mountain tops,
and keep them!
What do you imagine just the bureaucracy of
Government/VA/Indian Affairs Health Care is really going to cost?

And just who do you think is really going to pay for it?

How are you going to feel when you see ABC´s report on the
administrator of Government Health Care in a pink champaigne
bubble bath in Las Vegas?

But that STILL isn´t enough to keep you for voting for
more democrats, more socialism, more big government corruption,
is it?

My question is: How many of those American workers that just went into sticker shock will do anything about it -like call their senator and ask why they passed this bill ?

Will they stay at this job ? Will they lose their homes ? Go bankrupt because of medical bills ? Wasn´t the idea of the ACA not to lose everything over medical bills ?

Where is the outrage ?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/12/2014 9:28:08 AM     Post Reply
There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

For many years whenever the president nears any crowd, a Secret Service agent walks ahead along the rope line ordering everyone to keep hands out of their pockets where agents can see them. That´s less of a problem these days. Because the hands of most everyone in such locations are holding cellphones to take photos of the nearby celebrity. And if there´s a campaign underway requiring the politician to ingratiate himself, possibly a selfie with the big guy himself. It's priceless political PR -- and free.

The American media endure a soiled reputation in the United States these days. Rightly so too often. Many of its members failed their sentry duty during the run-up to the 2008 presidential elections, and oftentimes since covering only selectively positive parts of Barack Obama´s reign of error. Today´s column reminds us there is media and then there is media. Anja Niedringhaus was a member of the other media. A photojournalist for the Associated Press, she covered conflict for 20-plus years from the Balkans and Libya to Kuwait and Afghanistan. She´s dead now.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

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.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record
