Barack Obama, our next President

A closer look at a Facebook post on a man's struggle with the Obamacare marketplace
Our ruling
The Facebook post tells the story of a man who says he opted out of Obamacare soon after the marketplace was launched on Oct. 1, 2013, and was informed that he owed a fine of more than $4,000.
The post includes many elements that make no sense or are flat-out wrong -- and can be easily debunked by reading the law or reliable summaries of it. We rate it Pants on Fire.

How The Shutdown Taught The GOP To Love Big Government
With the American public largely blaming the House GOP for closing the federal government, they're looking for politically expedient programs to fund -- often programs they've criticized in the past -- to try to shift the shutdown heat to Democrats.
That's the cognitive dissonance of the House GOP's shutdown plan. The party of small government has now suddenly found a broad slate of government programs that it wants to fund.
Over the last week, the House has passed multiple partial spending bills to fund the most popular elements of the federal government: National parks. Cancer research. Veterans benefits. Disaster relief. More are coming. The Senate isn't moving on any of them, instead insisting that the House vote to fund the entire government.
"We have committed to fund the areas of government that we all agreed on, which is more areas than not. We're trying to ease the pain here. They're not joining us," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) said Saturday. "We're saying we've got a lot that we have in common."
House GOP aides, though, privately acknowledge the politics of their strategy: Fund programs that the public doesn't want closed and force Democrats to vote against it. All it required, it seems, was an abandonment of their small-government principles and ignoring their previous targeting of these programs for cuts.
Here are a few examples of where the GOP doesn't seem to be practicing what they used to preach:
As part of the automatic budget cuts that the GOP extracted from President Obama in the 2011 budget deal, the National Institutes of Health were forced to cut more than $1.5 billion from their budget, affecting "every area of medical research." Last week, House Republicans held a rally -- complete with members decked out in their scrubs -- urging Senate Democrats to provide temporary funding to NIH like the House had done.
In 2011, House Republicans voted to cut the special food stamps program for women, infants and children (WIC) by more than $700 million. And in the weeks leading up to the government shutdown, they passed unprecedented cuts to the broader food stamps program, which would have eliminated benefits for millions of people. But then last week, after the government shut down, House leaders chose WIC as one of the programs that they wanted to fund.
Cantor clashed with FEMA director Craig Fugate in 2011 after Cantor threatened to withhold disaster relief funding without budget cuts to offset its costs. Now FEMA has become one of the seven most essential federal agencies that the House wants to re-open.
Head Start, which the House will likely vote to fund this week, was another target for Republicans during the 2011 budget fight. Their spending bill -- which was ultimately changed by the Senate -- would have cut the program by more than $1 billion and removed more than 150,000 children from its rolls, according to the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Now, House Republicans are expected to vote this week on temporary funding for Head Start to put Democrats in a bind.
Despite their best efforts, though, the House seems to be embracing big government with little immediate payoff. There's no sign of the public shifting the blame to Democrats. The Senate isn't budging in its demand for a clean spending bill. And Democrats are trying to use the House GOP's piecemeal plan against them, dismissing it as a gimmick.
"Our position on the piecemeal, gimmicky approach that the House Republicans have taken, with no explanation for why they wouldn't just open the government at spending levels they set, remains the same," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Friday. "They should just reopen the government, right?"

Do the same thing and you will see the same results.
There is no middle class in socialism.

The greatest country in the world destroyed by Marxist obama and Socialist Nazi liberalism.

AND... Just look at how much effort the nazi liberals put into promoting this huge lie about how socialism has been "misused" by numerous bad dictators and societies, tarnishing its good name... Give nazisim another chance. Liberals: We are the better type of Socialist... LMFAO...

These idiot nazi liberals have followed the socialist philosophy to its logical conclusion. More people have died on this planet cursing some form or other of socialism than have died due to ANY other reason. In fact, more have died because of socialism than for ALL other reasons and religous wars combined. Aren't the ghetto liberals proud?

It's the culture...

You can try your half fact subsidy arguments all you want. These are oil industry subsidies.
What subsidies? You still haven't answered that question.
Where is your proof these mythical subsidies to oil companies exist?
Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.

8 Flagrant Examples of Republican Shutdown Hypocrisy

They claim they didn't want a shutdown, but these GOP politicians have been clamoring for one since 2010

8.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has been taking the closing of the WW II memorial hard, demanding that it be allowed to stay open while the rest of the government stays closed. However, in 2010 Rep. Gohmert was more than willing to see everything shut down – for the sake of the children, of course. ThinkProgress reports Rep. Gohmert saying, "Listen, if it takes a shutdown of government to stop the runaway spending, we owe that to our children and our grandchildren. I don't have any grandchildren yet, but if we don't stop the runaway spending – even if it means showing how serious we are –okay, government is going to have to shut down until you runaway-spending people get it under control. And if you can't get it under control, then we just stop government until you realize, you know, yes we can."

There are reportedly enough votes in the House to produce a clean continuing resolution and end this shutdown for good. But until Boehner is willing to buck the hardliners in his own party, that vote is never going to happen.

Sometimes the Thugs and Knuckleheads Are One and the Same

After a weekend of trying to imbibe as much as I could of the back-and-forthing over this latest Manufactured and Unnecessary Crisis—despite much better things to imbibe, like postseason baseball, football, or even hemlock—I shouted at no one in particular:

What the hell is this thing about, anyway?

I mean, is it Obamacare?

Or is it long-term debt?

One minute, the showboating Bazooka Ted and His Gang tried to hold up the bank and defund—or maybe just delay; or at the very least marginally fiddle with—Obamacare. Something! The “Vitter Amendment”! Anything! The next minute, we’re talking about a “grand bargain” again. An “epic battle” over spending. Doing something to save our grandchildren from runaway government debt.

If you want to win an epic battle, it’s probably a good thing to have a coherent idea of what you’re actually battling over.

Then, after all this imbibing and shouting, I came across the incomparable Erick Erickson, at the clearinghouse of unbridled idiocy known as RedState.com .

He starts out all cocksure:“Republicans are winning the shutdown fight, and Democrats know it.”

Ooooooh.

Later he asks the same question I just did:“do we want to stop Obamacare or do we want to stop the debt ceiling increase? My view is that we cannot do both at the same time.”

No kidding?

Thanks for the newsflash.

The nuber of people killed by their own government compared to the number of people killed by a war in the past century prove your point beyond any discussion.

With all the proof available to everyone, it's amazing that anyone is so ignorant they'll say things like "our government wouldn't do that" and "it can't happen here".

Do the same things and the same things will happen.
