Here’s Everything Steve Doocy Got
Wrong About Obamacare This Morning

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/22/2014 11:33:20 AM

Now that Obamacare is, in Chris Wallace’s generous phrasing this past Sunday, “not an unmitigated disaster,” attention is turning to how conservatives will deal with the cognitive dissonance of a law they swore would collapse functioning about according to plan. While lawmakers are stepping slowly back from repeal rhetoric to find an alternative, some pundits are going with the “pound the table” strategy and amplifying their original, now disproven, claims. That brings us to Steve Doocy, who managed to cram about as much untruth as humanly possible into one monologue on Fox & Friends this morning: Also, this is not good

Comments:
It appears that McMurry is proving his "journalistic" skills by using talking points from Media Matters. McMurry has the audacity to say: "we didn’t “blow up” health care — actually, the Affordable Care Act doesn’t affect a lot of people..." Seriously?? He should be absolutely ashamed of himself for that tripe. And this guy is the political editor for Mediaite? What a disaster he is.

Obamacare is not merely an "unmitigated disaster." It will be an apocalyptic tragedy once all its details have been activated.

Obama wants me to pay over a third of my total income toward premiums and deductibles before a penny is paid toward my care. And this jocko is okay with this? Sky high prices and poor care. Yeah, that´s the ticket.

It´s bad when you lie Mediate. It´s worse when you believe your own lies and propagate them.
O´care is nothing more than a slow motion train wreck which the emperor had to amend 36? times to prevent it from hitting the wall right away.

Obamacare is indeed an unmitigated disaster regardless of what Chris Wallace or any other talking head so called "Thinks".

Reacting to a single point, that being, Obamacare has allowed millions to sign up under Medicaid, what were the rules that stopped these same applicants from signing up for Medicaid prior to the laws passage ?

It seems so simple. If the goal was to get more people on Medicaid why not just lift the income limits and stop there. The rest of the law is not required.

All the mayhem we have seen comes from 6 million cancellation notices in the individual market. Wait till the employer mandate hits and brings a deluge of 90 to 100 million notices. Premium hikes are ´not as high as feared´. Have you taken a look at what was originally feared? It is no day at the beach. Besides who or what is going to pay for the millions and millions of subsidies that being freely handed out? There is literally no provision to shoulder that. At Federal or State level.
How can they publish this garbage with a straight face?

The uninsured totals were vastly inflated to pass the bill.

Since Obama passed we do not know

- how many folks lost their insurance
- how many folks signed up and actually paid for the insurance
- how many who signed up were actually for the Medicaid version paid by the states.
- how many who actually signed up and paid for the insurance will be satisfied with their coverage.
- how many folks were fired, placed on part time work, or were just not hired due to the additional regulatory burdens

We do know that

- the cost was estimated to be under $1 trillion but have been revised to about $1.5 trillion
- after all the folks and costs have netted out, we will still have a huge number of folks without coverage.
- this has been the weakest recovery since WWII.

What we will one day find out is that there were about 2 million previously uninsured that now have purchased insurance. The Medicaid additions likely qualified before, and the expansion of eligibility could have been done with a separate law. The kids on their parents´ policies are low cost to the insurance companies and profitable. There is no telling how many with cancelled insurance were unable to afford the Obamacare policies.

It is highly unlikely the legacy media will ever report on the insured people that are unable to find a doctor or afford care once they find a doctor.

Every person writing an article about Obamacare should be required to disclose who pays for their insurance. Most have employer paid coverage or Medicare, and have no idea what individuals seeking coverage are going through.

The Iraqi government may be finally enjoying some military successes in their struggle to roll back the advancing Sunni Islamic militant group ISIS. On Thursday night, according to Baghdad, the Iraqi army recaptured the city of Awja, Saddam Hussein’s birthplace. “Backed by helicopter gunships and helped by Shi’ite Muslim volunteers, the army recaptured the village of Awja in an hour-long battle on Thursday night, according to state media, police and local inhabitants,” Reuters reported. A spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government reported that 30 ISIS militants had been killed in the operation and Awja had been “totally cleansed.”

   

 

  


 
Obama’s Scandal Playbook

Editor´s note: This column originally appeared in the July issue of Townhall Magazine. Despite President Obama’s promise of an “unprecedented level of openness in government,” the American people have unfortunately become accustomed to a new normal over the past six years: incompetence, scandal, and misconduct. When news breaks about freshly exposed corruption, the reaction of far too many is, “Unbelievable, but I’m not surprised.” Since Obama took office in 2009, we’ve witnessed Operation Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Department of Justice spying on reporters and their families, IRS targeting of conservatives, the HealthCare.gov debacle, the GSA conference scandal, Solyndra, veterans dying as a

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday. The First Daughter, who has recently been in California doing a TV production internship, was just ten years old when her father was first elected President of the United States. And over the past six years, the country has witnessed her grow up into a tall, stylish and mature teen, giving her parents plenty of reasons to be proud.

The scientist whose findings environmentalists used to shame us into bringing our own reusable bags to the grocery store now says that his estimate of one million tons of plastic floating in the ocean may have been off by a factor of perhaps 143. His latest estimate ranges from 7,000 to 35,000 tons, and even most of that has biodegraded into granules. Cózar’s team didn’t find country-size islands of plastic bags strangling baby birds and sea turtles. It found “micro plastics.” What people think of as a dump doesn’t look like floating junk.

Border Patrol Agent, Hector Garza, told CNN that the federal government, the Obama administration, is “aiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of illegal aliens across the border.” Basically, what we’re seeing, plain and simple, is the rampant abuse of our immigration system. We have a situation right now where the federal government is aiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of these individuals, these illegal aliens. These illegal aliens cross the border illegally, these aliens who pretty much surrender themselves because they know they are getting a free pass. This is an organized, it is an orchestrated situation. It’s organized by

"I´m going to get cadaver arms from a donor, and they´re going to do a 16-hour surgery with 12-16 doctors and reattach bone, using titanium plates, reattaching nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and muscles."

The Progressive Assault on the
Legacy of Independence Day
FrontPage Magazine, by Bruce Thornton    Original Article

Independence Day is a good time to revisit the foundations of our political order, especially given the long record of Barack Obama and the Democrats’ disregard for the Constitution. The members of the Continental Congress who met in Philadelphia in July 1776 sought their independence from England in order to recover their rights that had been violated by a tyrant, and to establish political freedom and autonomy so that those rights could be protected from further erosion. For a century now the Progressive ideology has insidiously undermined that legacy of autonomy in a slow-motion revolution that aims to “fundamentally transform

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says the U.S. has only succeeded because generations of Americans have fought to expand rights and opportunity to more people. Obama is reflecting on the meaning of the Fourth of July in his weekly radio and Internet address. He says there´s no nation on earth that wouldn´t trade places with the United States. Obama says the Founding Fathers were united by a belief that all are created equal and have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He says America´s success has been made possible because Americans never took those truths for granted. In the

Coal may have played an integral role in turning the U.S. into the world’s top economic superpower, but President Obama is actively pushing China, India and other emerging economies to ignore the fuel that powered the Industrial Revolution and instead embrace renewable sources favored by those on the political left. As part of his passionate push on climate change, the president recently implored developing countries to “leapfrog” old energy sources, which are the primary drivers of carbon emissions. So far, however, there’s little evidence those countries intend to listen to Mr. Obama, with China’s coal consumption, for example, skyrocketing and

The Obama presidency has unraveled. The man who liberal political commentators once said was the rhetorical match of Lincoln is now considered by one-third of Americans to be the worst president since World War II, according to a new Quinnipiac University National Poll. (The span covers 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies.) The same poll found that 45 percent of Americans say the nation would be better off if Mitt Romney had won the 2012 presidential election, while only 38 percent say the country would be worse off. Another poll–this one from the Gallup organization–finds that in his sixth

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians).

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.
