What Was the Point of ObamaCare?
March 11, 2014

Last week, the Washington Post delivered a bombshell report:“Only one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private plans through the new marketplaces enrolled as of last month.” Instead, the overwhelming majority of those who are enrolling in insurance plans on the ObamaCare exchanges already had insurance.

The lie of the year for 2013 was President Obama’s promise that,“if you like your plan, you can keep it.” The lie of the year for 2014 is going to be the claim that ObamaCare would insure the uninsured.

ObamaCare has failed to attract those who lack health insurance, seemingly because they have decided that the premiums are too high for the bare-bones coverage the exchanges offer. In other words, the Affordable Care Act has failed to offer affordable care. Instead, most of ObamaCare’s sign-ups are merely migrating over from an existing health-insurance plan—in many cases involuntarily, after their plans were canceled for failing to comply with new ObamaCare regulations.

So what, then, was the point of ObamaCare?

WSJ/NBC News Poll: Obama's Approval Rating Hits New Low
March 12, 2014
Marks Could Be Hurdle for Democrats in November Amid Broad Dissatisfaction

President Barack Obama is struggling to overcome widespread pessimism about the economy and deep frustration with Washington, notching the lowest job-approval ratings of his presidency in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

The results suggest Mr. Obama could weigh on fellow Democrats in midterm elections this fall, particularly in the conservative states that will play a large role in deciding whether his party retains its Senate majority.
View Graphics

Mr. Obama's job approval ticked down to 41% in March from 43% in January, marking a new low. Some 54% disapproved of the job he is doing, matching a previous high from December, when the botched rollout of his signature health law played prominently in the news. The latest survey also showed the lowest-ever approval in Journal/NBC polling for Mr. Obama's handling of foreign policy.

Let me know when Obama gets to a new low of 24% that Bush's approval rating was ( the lowest rating of a President in modern times ) when he left office....:(

Rep. Barbara Lee Hits Back at Paul Ryan’s Dog-Whistle Politics

California Representative Barbara Lee responded to Representative Paul Ryan’s Wednesday remarks lambasting “inner city” men for not “learning the value or culture of work.” Her message: we know whom you’re talking about, Mr. Ryan.

In a statement, Representative Lee called out the Wisconsin congressman for invoking dog-whistle politics to support work requirements for benefits. She did not hold back.

“My colleague Congressman Ryan’s comments about ‘inner city’ poverty are a thinly veiled racial attack and cannot be tolerated,” Lee said.“Let’s be clear, when Mr. Ryan says ‘inner city,’ when he says,‘culture,’ these are simply code words for what he really means:‘black.’”

Representative Lee added,“Instead of demonizing ‘culture,’ and blaming black men for their poverty, Mr. Ryan should step up and produce some legitimate proposals on how to tackle poverty and racial discrimination in America. His uninformed policy proposals continue to increase poverty, not solve it.”

Representative Ryan made his controversial remarks on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America radio show. Responding to a question about the “fatherless problem” in poor neighborhoods, Ryan said,“We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.”

Obama's approval numbers have always been and will always be DOUBLE or TRIPLE the Republican's. Polls are not your friend, tea bagger. Both are reflections of government, which you've stalled with ignorant $24 billion failed shutdowns and the most filibusters in the history of the nation. Most of which were for jobs programs and expanding equality to all Americans, both things the overwhelming majority of Americans support.

Governor Corbett’s budget proposal fails to repair damage
done to Pennsylvania
HARRISBURG – The SEIU Pennsylvania State Council issued the following statement today in response to Governor Tom Corbett’s 2014/15 state budget address written and paid for by his campaign.
Gabe Morgan, Pennsylvania State Director for SEIU 32BJ and President of the State Council said:
“Governor Corbett should know that hiring George W Bush's former speechwriter and a Washington insider will not change his horrible record. No matter how he spins it, this Governor has been a disaster for the middle class.

Neal Bisno, President of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania and Secretary-Treasurer of the State Council said the governor’s refusal to accept federal funds to increase access to healthcare through Medicaid this year as all of our neighboring states are doing will cost Pennsylvania nearly $500 million and creates roadblocks between hardworking people and quality care.“Governor Corbett continues to stand between 500,000 uninsured working families and the healthcare they need and deserve. His refusal to expand Medicaid in this budget will cost taxpayers nearly half-a-billion dollars in lost savings. That’s funding that could be used to support our struggling schools, create jobs and expands access to healthcare for hardworking Pennsylvanians.”

No, I think she disputes the ludicrous, inaccurate and damaging notion that the problem exists only within "black culture" (whatever that is).

“For a lot of young boys and young men in particular, they don’t see an example of fathers or grandfathers, uncles, who are in a position to support families and be held up in respect,” Obama said.

“Too many fathers are M.I.A, too many fathers are AWOL, missing from too many lives and too many homes,” Mr. Obama said, to a chorus of approving murmurs from the audience.“They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.”

The amazing thing--or rather, one amazing thing--to me is if you pressed Ryan on this and pointed out how racist it is, he would deny it. He would deny any dog-whistle connection between "inner city" men and "blacks". It is just a coincidence, and you seeing anything more in it is PC mongering or some such.

And of course, this has been the playbook for the GOP since Nixon. Reagan did it pretty blatantly with his "welfare queen" epithet, along with giving a big speech on "state's rights" at the Neshoba County Fair in 1980. Bush with Willie Horton. Jesse Helms with the "hands" ad. And on and on. But oh, no; now that we have an African American President, racism is dead, right?

What a pile of horse manure.

Do you ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach that you're trying to reason with a stooge?
