Hope and Change – What do YOU think?

January 2, 2014 2 comments

It’s 2014! How about that “Hope And Change” from Obama and his wonderful team? How is the Affordable Care Act treating you?

Just how amazing is this new law? Forbes is saying that individual premium rates will increase by almost 100%

In Tennessee the rates appear to be going up even more than that.

In Alabama many residents are receiving notices that their insurance premiums will soon double.

Here’s a descriptive excerpt about how a single mother of 4 is being affected in the Alabama story:

Stay-at-home mother of four, Courtney Long, was shocked when she received a notice from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama stating that come January her family’s individual health insurance policy premium would increase from $352 per month to $796.

“It’s devastating. I started crying,” said Long. “I mean, we have worked so hard to get out of credit card debt, get ahead on the car loan, transfer our mortgage to a 15 from a 30 year mortgage… and for what?”

Long’s story is not unique. Many have received this same letter – alerting them their premiums were set to double (anywhere from $290/mo-$599/mo up to $603/mo-$1060/mo). That’s quite a jump! So, the “Affordable Care Act” is affordable for whom?

I am interested in hearing from people both for and against the Affordable Care Act.

Charles Krauthammer says that Obamacare is a massive transfer of wealth from the Young to the Old in our nation. Here’s why.

Let me know — how is the Affordable Care Act affecting you?

Birth Certificate Discussion – Evidence of What?

May 4, 2011 2 comments
I for one believe that there is something fishy about Obama’s birth. I’m not sure if he was born in Africa, like his grandmother said, or if he was born elsewhere … on that I have no definite opinion. But there’s something fishy about it, and we will find out someday. That’s my opinion.

Why has this new birth certificate version taken so long to produce? Why are so many of Obama’s records sealed by court order (by his own suits) to keep them private? These and other issues around the “Obama” topic are not getting answered, which causes me concern.

But the BIGGER concern to me is that “we” don’t care. The Americans by and large don’t care. We bought into the “Hope and Change” message, of which there has been little hope and little change. But we’re still drinking the kool aid. What this means to me is that Americans don’t care if we follow our Constitution as much as we care that we get fed and taken care of. It doesn’t matter if the Leader that brings us the Hope and Change we are craving is even American or not. If Obama’s programs like the big Quantitative Easing and Healthcare for All don’t work (and in my opinion they won’t work), then who do the Americans turn to for the next version of Hope and Change?

We obviously haven’t cared if our leader is born American or not, so why not just turn the whole thing over to the United Nations if they offer the best promises? OR, what about a Dictator? I would not be surprised if we were to choose one at some point — as long as he promises that jobs will be brought back and he swears the economy will be fixed! Where do we draw the line? It seems like we — generalized Americans — are more concerned with DWTS and American Idol and keeping our pension funds flowing even if it bankrupts the States we live in, than sticking to the principles of the Constitution (which are the only things keeping our freedoms secure all these many years.)

To me, the “not caring about the birth certificate as long as Obama delivers on his promises” is an evidence of a people that doesn’t care where their justice, domestic tranquility, and blessings of liberty come from, as long as someone else takes care of it. It appears we’re even willing to do away with the Constitution to get them…which also means we won’t have them much longer.

We’re sick of the secrecy, Barry

Check out this exchange between Senator John McCain and President Barak Obama, aka Barry Soetoro. (If you don’t know about Obama’s former name, please google it and learn a few things.)

ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/HealthCare/john-mccain-health-care-summit-obama-democrats-start/story?id=9952202&page=2) says there was a tense exchange between McCain and Obama when the longtime senator criticized Obama’s healthcare bill and his promise to televise healthcare discussions on C-SPAN, one which he did not keep.

“Let me just make this point, John, because we’re not campaigning anymore. The election’s over,” the president countered.

McCain today said he brought up the subject because of the closed-door meetings.
“The reason why I brought it up yesterday was not because of the campaign, but because the American people don’t like these unsavory deals,” he said.

What does Obama mean, “we’re not campaigning anymore”? As in, he can make any promises he wants to on the campaign trail, but once the “election is over”, he doesn’t have to follow through? I know we think this is “normal” for politicians, but would Obama really do this? I just want to point out yet another swig of kool-aid that many Americans were all too happy to drink in the name of Hope & Change, that has turned out to be a lie.

I’m not in love with McCain and his voting record, but he is spot on this time: “the American people don’t like these unsavory deals.” We are sick of the secret deals benefitting Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, ACORN, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, and everyone else playing politics on Obama’s team secretly hidden in the healthcare and bail-out bills. The American people have said they don’t want the current Senate healthcare bill, yet Obama is moving ahead with it and all the hidden benefits and political favors because he doesn’t have the votes to get it through the Senate again. If this passes, it will be a multi-Trillion dollar mistake we will be paying for many years to come. One small. enormous example: It has 6 years of benefits, but will take 10 years of increased taxes to pay off. Sound like good business sense to you? That’s Bernie Madoff accounting! What happens 6 years from now…and it’s time to pay for the next round of benefits? We won’t have any money because we’ll still be paying off the first set — for 4 more years!

Obama has filed over 90 lawsuits keeping personal information about his past hidden from the public. Why? When you and I go for a job, we expect people to check on our references and educational claims. There are more background checks going on for College Football coaches who have their resumes scrutinized than the President of the USA. When coaches’ claims are false, the institutions have no problem dismissing the coach straightaway. Yet we cannot even see Obama’s records from Columbia University. They are sealed by yet another lawsuit.

Investigative reporters have been trying to uncover anything about Obama’s time at Columbia. Many claim that he never attended the University. I don’t know either way – but my point is this: Why the secrecy? Obama has told people that he will be the most open President in US history, and yet he spent over $1million to hide his hospital birth records. Was this done to give his team more time to concoct their story and produce a forgery? Or was he really born a US citizen? I have no clue, but – if there is nothing to hide – why the millions to hide the record? If he attended Columbia, why hide the university records behind another court order?

We know less about this man than any President in US history. Most of what we know has been written by Obama himself, which should be a clue about something. The problems happen when his stories about himself are refuted. Like the one that Michelle Obama refuted. About his birth story.

Mrs. Obama has said that Obama’s mother was “very young and very single” when she had Barak, who she named “Barry.” http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=114259 which doesn’t jive with what Barry claims.

(Does this mean that I can call him a bastard if I want to? If Michelle is right, technically, it would be accurate.)

But back to the point: We the People are sick of the secrecy. Open the healthcare discussions to real debate. Give the legislators time to read and understand the ramifications of $1.5 Trillion worth of legislation. And then open your records Barry. Let us know who we have as President of the United States of America.
