Barack Obama, our next President

But meanwhile, more on the effects of ObammyCare:

Walgreen Drops its Healthcare Coverage for 160,000 Workers:

Like the president said, "of you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.” Well, unless you're one of the tens of millions of Americans who can't. Including, it turns out, lots of Walgreens employees.

Walgreen Co.(WAG), the biggest U.S. drugstore chain, will move its workers into a private health insurance exchange to buy company-subsidized coverage, the latest sign of how the debate over Obamacare is accelerating a historic shift in corporate health-care coverage. Walgreen’s decision affects about 160,000 current employees and follows similar action this year by Sears Holdings Corp.(SHLD) and Darden Restaurants Inc.(DRI) As an alternative to administering a traditional health plan, all three will send their employees to an exchange run by Aon Plc.

IBM and GE recently announced similar changes in their retirees plans, which are not to be confused with UPS' decision to drop spousal coverage. CBS News reported the "big deal" announcement this morning, noting that employees may have to swallow more out-of-pocket costs due to Walgreens' cost-saving move:

As the CBS correspondent points out, Walgreens made this move to insulate itself from anticipated rising healthcare costs, which Obamacare was ostensibly going to reverse. Based on CBO projections published yesterday, health costs will continue their inexorable climb, approximately doubling within the next 25 years. Walgreens will provide employees with a flat stipend to help defray some of those increased costs, but employees should brace to pay more on their own.

What makes this particular corporate decision ironic is that Walgreens agreed to team up with HHS to promote the new law, which has now forced major benefits changes within their own company.

The drug store chain is boosting a policy that has forced management to expose one of the president's core pledges as UNTRUE.

It is obvious that Obama's unamiguous vow to voters was false. Instead, he does a lot singing and dancing about the value of "choice and competition," (while, of course, opposing Paul Ryan's bipartisan reform to save Medicare), and echoing Harry Reid's pronouncement that Obamacare is only the first step toward really fixing our still-broken healthcare system through a fully government-run single payer system.

Confronted with this $2 trillion law's undeniable FAILURES, its cheerleaders are already making the pivot to their next bad idea.

George H.W. Bush lost his reelection because he reneged on "Read my lips, no new taxes." Yet Obama is reelected after he reneged on "If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

The damage done by Bush's tax hikes pale in comparison to the damage done by Obamacare. The scary part is we haven't come close to seeing the full extent of OBAMACARE DAMAGE to our country.

He also said after he passed it:

"I never said it would be free"

Because he knows he fooled the Liberals!!!

Pretty funny but sad. UCLA students say Obama deserves Peace Prize, but can't say why:

Students at the University of California (USC) said that President Obama definitely still deserves his Nobel Peace Prize — but had a hard time explaining why.

“I just feel like in general being a good guy, it’s just creating a lot more peace and like, mellow,” said one student, adding,“I love Obama, and I love everything he is doing. I just feel like everyone is so hard on him and it’s only his second year.”

When asked what the difference was between President Obama and President Bush invading the Middle East, that student’s answer was simple:

“Bush, I just didn’t like him,” she said.“I just don’t.”

Other students explained that some of his initiatives — such as his economic policies and Obamacare — made Americans happy and so led to world peace.

One student said he thought Obama had strengthened diplomatic ties “with countries” but could not explain what he meant.

“Just good-natured intentions,” he said.
Typical Liberal!!!

But it is all ok, God is good. Why?

Because every single person I know that voted for the incompetent teleprompter angry black man, lost his or her job, is declaring bankruptcy or is worst off now than under Bush!!!

Sadly many do not see or want to see the connection!

I have this friend of mine, she lost her job after Obama won, now she is loosing her house and filing for bankruptcy!!


She works for the American Heart Association and people are not giving any money to it!!

But she can not see the connection!!!

No wonder Liberals do not want to remove free NPR and MSNBC from cable TV, they need to keep fooling the Liberals!

Remember, ONLY Liberals are fooled by Obama!

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Clinic has told workers they will be laying off an unspecified number of employees as part of an overall, sweeping cost-reduction plan.

Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove discussed the looming cuts and changes in a Wednesday morning all-employee meeting.

Clinic spokeswoman Eileen Sheil denied circulating rumors that employees were told there would be 3,000 jobs cut.

She said any layoffs will be part of a multi-year plan to cut $330 million from the Clinic's budget.
Obamacare mandate stipulates that if a business blame their lay off on Obamacare they will be fined $100 for every employee they fired!!!

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is eliminating several hundred more jobs this week as part of its plan to cut up to 1,000 positions by the end of the year.

The cuts are expected to continue for several more weeks, and should be complete by late October.

According to a letter sent to state and city officials, Vanderbilt said the workers receiving notice would be “permanently laid off starting on November 16, 2013 and continuing until or on about December 31, 2013.” All affected employees will be given 60 days’ notice, the letter said.

“What’s happened here at Vanderbilt is today we’ve started this action, and several hundred people will be leaving the organization,” said John Howser, spokesman for VUMC.

This latest round of layoffs is part of the medical center’s plan to cut $250 million from its $3.3 billion operating budget over the next two fiscal years. Jeffrey Balser, head of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has told staff that the restructuring is part of a plan called “Evolve to Excel.”
Obamacare mandate that if a business blames their layoff on Obamacare it will be considered "politicking" and will either lose their tax exemption (if a church for example) or a fine of $100 for each employee they fired!!!

The Bush family and the S&L Scandal

Neil, George Jr., George Sr., and Jeb Bush

The Savings and Loan industry had been experiencing major problems through the late 60s and 70s due to rising inflation and rising interest rates. Because of this there was a move in the 1970s to replace the role of S&L institutions with banks.

In the early 1980s, under Reagan, regulatory changes took place that gave the S&L industry new powers and for the first time in history measures were taken to increase the profitability of S&Ls at the expense of promoting home ownership.

A history of the S&L situation can be found here:

What is important to note about the S&L scandal is that it was the largest theft in the history of the world and US tax payers are who was robbed.

The problems occurred in the Savings and Loan industry as they relate to theft because the industry was deregulated under the Reagan/Bush administration and restrictions were eased on the industry so much that abuse and misuse of funds became easy, rampant, and went unchecked.

Additional facts on the Savings and Loan Scandal can be found here:

There are several ways in which the Bush family plays into the Savings and Loan scandal, which involves not only many members of the Bush family but also many other politicians that are still in office and still part of the Bush Jr. administration today. Jeb Bush, George Bush Sr., and his son Neil Bush have all been implicated in the Savings and Loan Scandal, which cost American tax payers over $1.4 TRILLION dollars (note that this is about one quarter of our national debt).

Between 1981 and 1989, when George Bush finally announced that there was a Savings and Loan Crisis to the world, the Reagan/Bush administration worked to cover up Savings and Loan problems by reducing the number and depth of examinations required of S&Ls as well as attacking political opponents who were sounding early alarms about the S&L industry. Industry insiders were aware of significant S&L problems as early 1986 that they felt would require a bailout. This information was kept from the media until after Bush had won the 1988 elections.

Jeb Bush defaulted on a $4.56 million loan from Broward Federal Savings in Sunrise, Florida. After federal regulators closed the S&L, the office building that Jeb used the $4.56 million to finance was reappraised by the regulators at $500,000, which Bush and his partners paid. The taxpayers had to pay back the remaining 4 million plus dollars.

Neil Bush was the most widely targeted member of the Bush family by the press in the S&L scandal. Neil became director of Silverado Savings and Loan at the age of 30 in 1985. Three years later the institution was belly up at a cost of $1.6 billion to tax payers to bail out.

What planet are you on Carol? What party has been trying to suppress votes? What party's operative in Virginia was arrested for dumping voter registration forms in a dumpster? What party took a blood oath to block any proposals by the President even if it meant crashing the economy in the process?
Lie Carol? The Romney/Ryan ticket set a record for sheer mendacity . Does the lie about Jeep production being shipped to China ring a bell? How about the fabrication that Obama "gutted" the work requirement for welfare or that Obamacare gets between doctors and their patients? There's also the lie that Romney said in October of 2008 where he stated that the President hadn't signed a single trade agreement in his four years when in fact he signed three with Panama, Columbia and South Korea.
Here's another one;
"The number one to cut is Obamacare. That saves $95 billion a year."
- Mitt Romney
False. When Republicans introduced H.R. 2, the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act, the Congressional Budget Office sent House Speaker John Boehner a letter detailing what would happen if the law was passed. As it turns out, the CBO estimates that repealing the Affordable Care Act would "increase federal budget deficits over the 2012-2019 period by a total of roughly $145 billion." In short, the Affordable Care Act will save us money in the long run.
And How about this?
"Three years ago, a newly elected President Obama told America that if Congress approved his plan to borrow nearly a trillion dollars, he would hold unemployment below eight percent."
- Mitt Romney
False. Simply put: No such promise was ever made, either by President Obama or any member of his administration. The only comparable statement was made in 2009, in a report by then-chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisors Christina Romer. The report made various projections relating to the stimulus plan, one of which stated that unemployment would peak under eight percent in 2009. The operative word, of course, being "projection" -- not a promise by any means. Regardless, President Obama didn't even say it.
You're an idiot Carol.
