We can’t take care of our own soldiers. How’s Obamacare going to work?
Amidst the fury over an administration too scared to send rapid response troops to Benghazi, an administration using the IRS as a Chicago-style thug to intimidate Tea Party, 9/12 and Patriot organizations, and a DOJ casting a worried net over 100 reporters when the AP scooped them by a day, come this matter of recurring inept operations. Remember also the Boston Marathon bomber was missed on a no-fly list because his name was misspelled.
The CEO of this fine United States of America is notably absent.
Listening to the news in 2009, everyone would be expected to accept there 20 million uninsured (or 35 million, or more) people looking for health care insurance alternatives. Led to believe most of these are uninsurable because of pre-existing conditions clauses in the evil health insurance industry policies, we were fed the story that Big Government is the only answer for these presumed millions of poor souls.
So Health and Human Services (HHS) started a program to catch the uninsurable. Expecting 375,000 applicants in the first year, the actual number was 8,011.
Who thought Big Government was so smart!
Next in the story, watch for the HHS spin on these numbers. This debate has never been about the cost of health care, or even about the cost of health insurance. The debate is over government subjugation of the electorate.
“… no new deficit spending.”
Really? How about $5,000,000,000,000 (that’s 5 trillion dollars) of new deficit spending under her watch?

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
On September 15, 2010, Halo Man tried out a rewrite of our Declaration of Independence. That didn’t go over too well. But he didn’t think anyone noticed and Dear President dropped “by their Creator” for a second time on September 22, 2010.
Third time’s the charm, right? And this one is backed up in writing.
This gets worse. C5’s Simian Roadhouse posts a nice round up of the topic by searching the White House web site.
And in what Doug Powers calls an “Election Hail Mary” … Continue reading ‘Obama Finally Mentions Our Creator!’
Yes, the very same Imam Rauf behind the Cordoba Initiative (now Park51) Ground Zero Mega-Mosque bragged, in Arabic, of crafting Obama’s Cairo apology speech.
But is facing red tape being rebuilt.
Meanwhile, the political organization responsible for 9/11 gets to build on a fast track.
