Forbes: “Double Down: Obamacare Will Increase Avg. Individual-Market Insurance Premiums By 99% For Men, 62% For Women”


Here is a great reference for your liberal and blinded friends (but I repeat myself) who believe that:
1) our government should even be involved in “healthcare” and
2) Obamacare will LOWER premiums.

The news is not good, but entirely anticipated by those opposed to this PARTISAN piece of government control.

Based on a Manhattan Institute analysis of the HHS numbers, Obamacare will increase underlying insurance rates for younger men by an average of 97 to 99 percent, and for younger women by an average of 55 to 62 percent. Worst off is North Carolina, which will see individual-market rates triple for women, and quadruple for men.

Examiner: The #Obama You Don’t Know (ie because the #MSM won’t tell you) #corruption #Chicagomachine


“But beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.”

Obama in his own words: “Because I actually believe in redistribution….so everyone has a shot” #socialism


Tape from 1998 — Obama in his own words– “I  actually believe in redistribution”.

Straight from the Drudge Report today:

From YouTube page: “At an October 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, Barack Obama spoke against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.”

From the Daily Caller – pointing out that Obama’s message was to “trick” the public into redistribution:

“Amid public distrust, “the trick is, “How do we structure government systems  that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution? — because I  actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make to make  sure everybody has got a shot,” Obama told a Loyola University audience in  October 1998.”

So if Obama believes in redistribution, how come he never ran on that in the 2008 campaign?  He and his followers are absolutely appalled when you call him a socialist….which he is.

At least Romney has been truthful about those who take from government….most of it courtesy of Obama.  Obama can’t be truthful about what he believes because he wants to “trick” the people into things they wouldn’t want if they knew his real intentions….a socialist, downgraded America.

This video gets to the gist of why Obama must go.  His beliefs are anti-American and for 4 years he has tried to hide his true intentions by cloaking his policies in “blame Bush”, class warfare rhetoric.

Obama must go!

#Obama in 2008 slanders half the country by calling them “bitter clingers” #romneyencore


Of course the Obama-media will pounce on the truth-teller Romney’s comments in the “gotcha” video….

But don’t we all remember when Obama slandered half of the country back in 2008 with his “bitter clingers” remark — a remark that was secretly taped?  Where was the heavy breathing by the media on that one saying “Obama’s lost the race”?

Such hypocrisy….and Obama’s comment wasn’t even factual or remotely true.  Romney’s was.

Here’s Obama trashing half of the country (or more) while being taped back in 2008:

Text of comments:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them….And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Just throw this back in the faces of the Obama-lovers in the media and elsewhere when they try to trash Romney for stating the obvious.
The double-standards and dishonesty are breathtaking in the media (and on the Left).

#Romney whacks the #Left with another #Truth Stick! #Obama hit hardest #47percent #SecretRomneyTapeRevelations


Tonight, Mitt Romney responded to the Mother Jones “gotcha” video…The video the Left thought would catch Romney in a “gotcha” moment seems to be backfiring for them.

And Romney’s response is spot-on.  Obama’s policies are a failure and adds to the dependence in this country. Transcript of Romney’s response:

“Of course, there’s a very different approach of the two campaigns.  As I point out that among those that pay no tax, approximately 47% of Americans, I’m not likely to be highly successful with a message of lowering taxes.  That’s not as attractive to those who don’t pay income taxes as to those who do.  And likewise, those who are reliant on government are not as attractive to my message of slimming down the size of government… The president and I have two very different approaches to the future of America and what it takes to ignite our economy and put people back to work.  The president believes in what I describe as a government centered society. Where government plays a larger and larger role and plays more and more of the needs of individuals.  And, I happen to believe instead in a free enterprise, free individual society where people pursuing their dreams are able to employ one another, build enterprises, build the strongest economy in the world.  I happen to believe that my approach is the approach that will put 23 million people back to work again.

We’ve watched the approach of the president’s approach over the last 3 1/2 or 4 years.  And his government centric, larger and larger government approach has meant that we have 15 million more people on food stamps, 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work, or underemployed.  We have had 43 straight months of unemployment above 8%.  And my view is the right approach for the nation is not to adopt a government centered approach but instead a free, free people, free enterprise, free market consumer driven approach and that will build the strongest economy for ourselves and for the coming generations.”

As I’ve asked one leftist commenter previously

What part of Obama’s policies actually ENCOURAGE self-reliance rather than  dependency?
What part of Obama’s policies actually ENCOURAGE individual success and/or climbing OUT of poverty instead of a steady dependence on government?

The Left gets silent (or avoid answering the specific question) when asked to defend Obama’s disastrous policies.
Thankfully Romney was not silent in his excellent response.

Romney is a free enterprise, capitalist, pro-American who is for individual freedom and effort and the power of the people.
Obama is a central-planning, socialist, anti-American who is for government dependency and his own power.

The Left up in arms about Romney’s truth talk: He says #Obama voters feel “entitled” and are dependent on government #SecretRomneyTapeRevelations


The Left is all apoplectic about Romney and his blunt assessment of the welfare state on steroids under Obama.

Mitt Romney described almost half of Americans as “dependent upon government” during a private reception with donors this year and said those voters were likely to support President Obama because they believe they are “entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.”

The blunt political and cultural assessment by the Republican presidential candidate offers a rare glimpse into Mr. Romney’s personal views as the campaign enters its final 50 days. Liberals quickly condemned the remarks as insensitive, and Mr. Obama’s campaign accused him of having “disdainfully written off half the nation.”

HA!  Obama talks of disdain for half of the country?  Tell it to the “bitter clingers”, the “white folks”, the “rich”, and Christians, Mr. Obama!

Romney is right.  Dependency is a cancer on this country and Obama has hastened it along.

With 50% not paying income tax and within that 30% of earners receive money from the government (without paying taxes) AND with Obama wanting the top 1% of earners who already pay 71% of taxes to pay more  — Romney has a point as to who will vote for Obama….those who pay nothing.

With a record 47 million Americans— roughly 1 in 5 adults–receiving food stamps now…. AND Obama being responsible for the addition of 15 million of those recipients (about a 50% increase in his 4 years in office) — Romney has a point as to who will vote for Obama….those who have their food paid for by others courtesy of Obama.

When the Obama admin stops deportation and grants work permits allowing some 800,000 illegals (mostly Latino) to “stop fearing deportation” and stay in this country illegally – all done without any Congressional bill/approval – Romney has a point as to who will vote for Obama….those who are allowed to break the law and step ahead of others for work …courtesy of Obama.

When the Obama administration DEMANDS that we all pay for birth control and abortion meds for those who say they want government out of the bedroom, but want government dependency in the form of birth control – well, Romney has a point as to who will vote for Obama…..those who get FREE birth control so someone else pays for their lack of self-control.

Dependent upon government is what Romney said…where is he wrong?  50% pay no income taxes, 30% take others’ tax dollars while paying none, 47 million people (20% of adults) depend on government for food stamps, 800,000 who break the law depend on government in order to stay here and take our jobs; and millions of women now will be dependent on the government to get free birth control and abortions on someone else’s dime.

Those who are the Obama bandwagon — despite the facts – are just appalled that Romney would call out those who suck off the government; but where was all of this disdain when Obama said that a large majority of the country are “bitter” and “cling to their guns and religion” or when he said he believes there is a “point where you’ve made enough money” as if Obama is the arbiter of what we all should have and need.

Romney was spot-on….the truth hurts…dependency is NOT an American value, but is a policy of the Obama administration.
