“You got to have it, to lose it”
Credibility, that is. Congressional approval is at 9%, deservedly so. But, it’s looking worse for the D-words than the R-words. Never fear, the D-words are going to “fix” all their problems, and yours too, by Friday. Excuse me for chortling at their predicament over the pernicious Obamacare junk insurance bill, Maybe if they had actually read it, to “find out what’s in it”, before they passed it, they would have seen this coming. Most people now whining about Obamacare voted for it by once again installing the Great-Illuminated-Brain in the Oval Office. “I didn’t know it was going to affect me” is the new mantra of the left. Mostly I feel sorry for the young and gullible. Bo’s utopian pipe dream of distribution of wealth just didn’t come to fruition in the way they thought it would. Punished for being young and healthy, strapped with debt and burden, this is what BO gave them. Well, that and really high unemployment numbers. Kristen Powers: I’m Fuming That the Administration Keeps Claiming My Policy Was Canceled Becasue It Was “Substandard;” It Wasn’t. It Was Canceled to Force Me to Subsidize Other People.
My blood pressure goes up every time they say that they’re protecting us from substandard health insurance plans,” Powers told Bret Baier. “There is nothing to support what they’re saying.”
“I have talked to about how I’m losing my health insurance,” she continued. “If I want to keep the same health insurance, it’s going to cost twice as much. There’s nothing substandard about my plan.”
“All of the things they say that are not in my plan are in my plan,” Powers lamented. “All of the things they have listed — there’s no explanation for doubling my premiums other than the fact that it’s subsidizing other people. They need to be honest about that.”
106,187 people have signed up for Obamacare, reported by Reuters, and of that number, only 27,000 signed up via the website What a huge success story! It’s not just the website has “glitches”, there’s a question of how secure it really is for those who do sign up (in spite of the glitches). Romney was right about Obamacare, along with a lot of other issues BO has been woefully short sighted on. Romney Was Right, GOP Nominee’s Predictions Coming True.
The “green movement”, and BO, do not believe there are negative consequences to rulings. All those hurrahs resounding from their ranks over windmills and ethanol to reduce “globull warming” are having dire consequences on ecosystems. In 2012 thousands of migratory birds were killed by those precious windmills, including those on the endangered species list, and between 600,000 to 800,000 bats. President Obama’s Climate Plan Would Kill Hundreds Of Millions Of Birds And Bats
A newly published peer-reviewed study reports U.S. wind turbines kill 1.4 million birds and bats every year, even while producing just 3 percent of U.S. electricity. The numbers reveal that President Obama’s global warming plan will kill hundreds of millions of birds and bats while doing little if anything to reduce global temperatures. [snip]
United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) lead author Hans von Storch conceded earlier this month that computer models predicting significant future global warming cannot replicate recent temperatures and likely need to be adjusted downward to predict less warming. A panel of experts convened last week by Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer agreed President Obama’s recent assertion that global warming is accelerating is not supportable by real-world facts and data. Hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, wildfires, etc., are all in long-term downward trends as our planet modestly warms in its recovery from the recent Little Ice Age.
As if that is not enough, 5 million acres of conserved land has disappeared thanks to Obama and the greenies. Prairies are vanishing and virgin land is being plowed under by farmers in the corn-for-ethanol policy set by BO. Prairies vanish in the US push for green energy
What the green-energy program has made profitable, however, is far from green. A policy intended to reduce global warming is encouraging a farming practice that actually could worsen it.
That’s because plowing into untouched grassland releases carbon dioxide that has been naturally locked in the soil. It also increases erosion and requires farmers to use fertilizers and other industrial chemicals. In turn, that destroys native plants and wipes out wildlife habitats.
It appeared so damaging that scientists warned that America’s corn-for-ethanol policy would fail as an anti-global warming strategy if too many farmers plowed over virgin land.
The Obama administration argued that would not happen. But the administration didn’t set up a way to monitor whether it actually happened. It did…..[snip]
“If we’re going to push the land this hard, we really need to intensify conservation in lockstep with production, and that’s just not happening,”
Obamacare isn’t the only horrific policy the Asshat-in-Chief and his thugs have implemented through the various alphabet bureaucracies at his disposal. By appeasing certain groups of people, he is making a mess of every single aspect of our economy. His agenda is not to govern as the Preezy of all the people, just some of the people.
