Republican 2016 Hopes Evaporate as David Wildstein Says Christie Knew About Bridgegate :

The house of cards is crashing down around Chris Christie and taking the Republicans best hope for 2016 with them, as David Wildstein is spilling the beans and admitting the governor knew about Bridgegate.

Kate Zernike at the New York Times reported:

In a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s who was appointed with the governor’s blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” three weeks ago.

GOP In Shambles As Poll Finds Americans View Democrats as More Ethical and Honest

Despite spending years attacking the character of President Obama and the Democrats, a new Pew Research Center survey found that the American people trust Democrats more than Republicans 41%-31%.

The Pew Research Center’s annual survey of policy and priorities found that Democrats led Republicans on a wide range of character issues. Democrats had a 25 point lead (52%-27%) on being more willing to work with the other party. Democrats held a 20 point (52%-32%) advantage on the question of who is concerned with the needs of people like me. By a margin of 54%-35%, Republicans were found to be the more extreme party in their positions. Respondents also thought the Republican Party was more influenced by lobbyists than the Democratic Party (47%-30%), but the most telling question was who do people trust to govern ethically and honestly.

By a margin of 41%-31% those surveyed believed that Democrats govern in a more ethical and honest way than Republicans. This question goes to the heart of why Democrats continue to win elections. A majority of voters don’t trust the Republican Party. They don’t think Republicans will be honest with them. Some of these feelings are no doubt left over from the dishonest Bush administration, but much of the distrust comes from the way Republicans have chosen to govern.

Uninsured and Obamacare

The Obama's warned us.

“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
— Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
— Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

Most Americans don't like the 'fundamentally transforming' Obamacare monstrosity--including the uninsured.

Uninsured Americans' Hardening View of Obamacare

Two new public opinion polls show uninsured Americans—a group considered critical for Obamacare’s success—are hardening their views about the President’s health care law.

The Kaiser Family Foundation’s latest monthly tracker out today reported that 47 percent of Americans who lack health insurance have an unfavorable opinion of Obamacare, outnumbering by 2-to-1 those uninsured Americans who like Obamacare (24 percent). Last month, views from uninsured Americans were more evenly split, with 43 percent opposing Obamacare and 36 percent supporting, the Kaiser poll noted.

While most uninsured Americans (54 percent) said Obamacare hasn’t made much difference for them or their families, 33 percent felt they were worse off, and only 13 percent reported feeling better off from the law.

When asked about their views of Obamacare helping Americans who don’t have insurance, uninsured Americans were even more negative, with 39 percent believing uninsured Americans were worse off, 29 percent saying it would have no impact, and 26 percent believing the uninsured would be helped by Obamacare.

More Obamacare stupidity: Developers of website linked to Belarus government

Developers linked to the government of Belarus may have placed malicious code inside the healthcare.gov website allowing it to hack into the personal information of consumers.

So how did we find out about this Belarus connection? They told us:
***
"Officials disclosed the software compromise last week after the discovery in early January of statements by Belarusian official Valery Tsepkalo, director of the government-backed High-Technology Park (HTP) in Minsk.
Tsepkalo told a Russian radio station in an interview broadcast last summer that HHS is "one of our clients," and that "we are helping Obama complete his insurance reform."
"Our programmers wrote the program that appears on the monitors in all hospitals and all insurance companies-they will see the full profile of the given patient," Tsepkalo said June 25 on Voice of Russia Radio."
White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said an intelligence report on the Belarusian software was "recalled by the intelligence community shortly after it was issued.""
***

Why recall the report? Obviously, the White House doesn't want the public to know how criminally negligent they've been in hiring hackers to write Obamacare website code.

When was the administration going to get around to telling people who've signed up via healthcare.gov that someone sitting in Belarus was eyeballing their personal information, looking to sell it to ID thieves?

Obama Whines to O'Reilly:'Absolutely' Unfair to Ask About ObamaCare, IRS, and Benghazi

During an extended portion of Bill O'Reilly's Super Bowl interview with President Obama aired on Monday's O'Reilly Factor, the Fox News host wondered: "Do you think I've been unfair to you?" Obama replied: "Absolutely, of course you are, Bill."

When O'Reilly demanded evidence, the President cited the preceding interview: "Bill, we just went through an interview in which you asked about health care not working, IRS,'Were we wholly corrupt?', Benghazi. Right? So the list of issues that you talk about." O'Reilly pushed back: "But these are unanswered questions." Obama complained: "But they're defined by you guys in a certain way."

Over 2 million jobs lost due to Obamacare says CBO.

the number of people without insurance coverage will have dropped from 45 million today to 30 million says CBO.

So America loses 2mil jobs at a huge cost so 15 mil can get insurance.

Meanwhile the White House says thats ok because women want to stay home with children and work less.

BO STINKS!!!!
FACTS

#55931 Feb 5, 2014
No, CBO did not say Obamacare will kill 2 million jobs:

Here we go again. During the 2012 campaign, The Fact Checker had to repeatedly explain that the Congressional Budget Office never said that the Affordable Care Act “killed” 800,000 jobs by 2021. Now, the CBO has released an updated estimate, nearly the triple the size of the earlier one: 2.3 million in 2021.

The Facts

First, this is not about jobs. It’s about workers — and the choices they make.

The CBO’s estimate is mostly the result of an analysis of the impact of the law on the supply of labor. That means how many people choose to participate in the work force. In other words, the nonpartisan agency is examining whether the law increases or decreases incentives for people to work.

One big issue: the health insurance subsidies in the law. That’s a substantial benefit that decreases as people earn more money, so at a certain point, a person has to choose between earning more money or continuing to get the maximum help with health insurance payments. In other words, people might work longer and harder, but actually earn no more, or earn even less, money. That is a disincentive to work.(The same thing happens when people qualify for food stamps or other social services.)

Thus, some people might decide to work part-time, not full time, in order to keep getting health-care subsidies. Thus, they are reducing their supply of labor to the market. Other people near retirement age might decide they no longer need to hold onto their job just because it provides health insurance, and they also leave the work force.

Look at this way: If someone says they decided to leave their job for personal reasons, most people would not say they “lost” their jobs. They simply decided not to work.

To sum up this article for all the Obama lap dogs:

Obamacare reduces the workforce of 2 million because the law made Americans choose between working more and making less

AND/ OR

work less and get paid the same through taxpayer subsidies.

Way to help set the bar low for yourselves Libs!!!!! LMAO !!!

The FACT is that Obamacare FORCES workers to make this choice resulting in 2 million less jobs.

Budget office chief: ObamaCare creates ‘disincentive’ to work

The head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office delivered a damning assessment Wednesday of the Affordable Care Act, telling lawmakers that ObamaCare creates a "disincentive for people to work," adding fuel to Republican arguments that the law will hurt the economy.

The testimony from CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf comes after his office released a highly controversial report that detailed how millions of workers could cut back their hours or opt out of the job market entirely because of benefits under the health law.

The White House and its Democratic allies accused Republicans, and the media, of mischaracterizing the findings. But Elmendorf backed Republicans' central argument -- fewer people will work because of the law's subsidies.

"The act creates a disincentive for people to work," Elmendorf said, under questioning from House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

Red State Dem Steve Beshear Busts the Media’s Anti-Obamacare BS By Predicting 2014 Win

Red state Democratic governor Steve Beshear turned the media narrative about ObamaCare upside down and spanked it, telling Greg Sargent that ObamaCare is going to be a winner for Democrats in November of 2014, in a red state or not.

The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent interviewed Governor Steve Beshear (D-KY), one of the few Democrats who seems to understand the goldmine that ObamaCare offers Dems this election if they know what to do with it.

Beshear told Sargent “We’re doing the right thing. That’s the most important point here. The people of America, and the people of Kentucky, deserve access to affordable health care. For the first time in the history of this country, we have a tool that allows us to accomplish this goal.”


Beshear continued on, explaining what we have been saying at Politicus ever since Republicans started their ObamaCare fear-mongering,“This issue is going to look a lot different in November 2014 than it looks today. By November 2014, these exchanges will be working smoothly, and the world will not have come to an end… Right now some are afraid because of misinformation. By November they will know it’s not going to do anything to them.”

Beshear went so far as to make the bold claim that ObamaCare is a winner for Democrats, telling Sargent,“In general this issue is going to be a winner for Democrats by November of 2014 — whether you’re in a red state or a blue state.”

This is hardly his first powerful defense of the President’s healthcare reform. In August of last year, Beshear refused to buy into the Republican fear-mongering and instead, turned it around and made such a compelling argument for it that he left Senator Rand Paul and Senator Mitch McConnell reeling.

The Insiders: Obamacare – The incompetence and denials keep coming

Two stories converge today to illuminate how the White House and the Democratic establishment are attempting to hide the next wave of Obamacare failures. Both Post stories reveal how the president and Democratic leaders at the state level are hiding problems with Obamacare instead of confronting and fixing problems.

First, Amy Goldstein of The Post reveals that the appeals process guaranteed in the Obamacare law does not actually exist. The story outlines an almost comical process that requires citizens who seek a fair hearing to have an innocent, HealthCare.gov -generated mistake corrected to fill out a seven-page paper form that is then inexplicably shipped to Kentucky, where it is entered into a government database that isn’t actually connected to anything. It’s a digital dead end for those who dare to complain.
...
Next, The Post’s Jenna Johnson and Mary Pat Flaherty outline how Maryland state officials are trying to block an investigation into the debacle of the state health insurance exchange Web site, which has been plagued with operational problems since day one. Some Democratic officials — including Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who is running for governor — don’t want a full investigation because such an investigation could have a negative impact on the upcoming state elections for Democrats.

Press Releases

Gowdy, Jordan, Chaffetz Press AG on President’s IRS Comments
Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) today sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder regarding the President’s comments claiming not a "smidgen of corruption" at the IRS, despite an ongoing criminal investigation.

Text of the letter:


February 5, 2014


The Honorable Eric Holder

Attorney General

U.S. Department of Justice

950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Washington, DC 20530



Dear Attorney General Holder:

We are writing you today to inquire about the President’s recent comments regarding the criminal investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS’s) treatment of taxpayers applying for nonprofit status for their organizations based on political persuasion.

In May of 2013, President Obama said he would not tolerate partisan targeting and vowed to “make sure that we find out exactly what happened” at the IRS.[1] Since this situation came to light, we have received very little information on the Department of Justice’s criminal investigation. You testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on January 29, 2014, that the investigation is open and still proceeding, and criminal charges are still possible, noting,“All the options are on the table, given the fact that there has not been a determination either to bring charges or to decline the case.”[2]

Additionally, on January 30, Deputy Attorney General James Cole sent a letter to Representative Jim Jordan refusing to allow any Department employees to testify before Congress because of the on-going nature of the investigation, stating it is the commitment of the Department to avoid

“… any perception that our law enforcement efforts are subject to undue influence from elected officials. Our disclosure of non-public information about this pending investigation would be inconsistent with this long-standing policy and could undermine judicial confidence in the independence of the criminal justice process.”

In contrast to these statements, on Sunday, February 2, the President stated there is “not a smidgen of corruption” at the IRS regarding this targeting, despite the fact the investigation, to the best of our knowledge and according to your recent testimony, is not complete. We hope you can restore our confidence that the investigation into the IRS will be thorough and not swayed by any political biases.

In that vein, we are hoping you can answer several questions:

1) If the IRS investigation is “ongoing,” and there has been no determination as to whether criminal charges will be brought, how does the President know there is no criminality?

2) Is the President being briefed on the investigation while it is ongoing?

3) Can Congress be briefed on the status of the investigation and preliminary findings through a bipartisan, bicameral briefing?

Thank you in advance for your prompt response.
