Union: Obamacare will slash wages by up to $5 an hour
March 9, 2014

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix.

Unite Here warned that due to Obamacare's much higher costs for health insurance than what union workers currently pay, the result will be a pay cut of up to $5 an hour. "If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00,$3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage," said the union in a new report.

“Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here.“Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled,“The Irony of Obamacare: Making Inequality Worse.”

Reset to nowhere
March 7, 2014

Hillary Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov press a red button symbolizing the intention to "reset" US-Russian relations March, 2009.

The “reset” with Russia had a brief, unhappy life. It began with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presenting her Russian counterpart with a mistranslated reset button reading “overcharged.” It ended with current Secretary of State John Kerry denying knowledge of the late, unlamented policy on “Meet the Press”:“Well, I don’t know what you mean by the reset.”

Memories are short in Foggy Bottom. And understandably. Who wouldn’t try to forget a geopolitical initiative that has been exposed as willful naiveté and strategic obtuseness from the beginning?

This was a perverse misreading of history. Of all President George W. Bush’s failings, not giving the Russians a chance wasn’t one of them. He notoriously looked into Russian President Vladimir Putin’s eyes at the beginning of his presidency and saw sweetness and light. By the end, his illusions were shattered by the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008.

Corbett put 100,000 children at risk of losing health care. He cut education by $1 billion dollars and Pennsylvania has gone from 7th to 46th in job creation. This is not tapping our potential, this is wasting it.

Corbett is a corperate muse.. Im all for the NRA and responsible conservatism but not false conservatism in a guise of liberatarianism. He always has been a political elite selling out for corporate America. He is the eptiome of failing govt. oversight ie; there are hundreds of former state workers who now are unemployeed at the hands of govt and business fallandering behind closed doors. To make matters worse those workers never had a chance to fairly attempt to get their jobs back. Privatization is great when its done under the free hand of the market not when plutocrats and bureaucrats meet behind closed doors to control workers ability to work. In reality thats creating more govt on top of more govt and allowing it to continue is neo-liberalism at its core. Mises and Rothbard are rolling over in their graves at the notion of people like Corbett claiming he's a conservative. Screw that.

Excellent post. Tell me, how does one of the few remaining intelligent, well-grounded, reasonable and rational Republicans feel about his once-powerful party being reduced to a nutty fringe group by people who think Jesus cancels out climate change and that Obama is a Kenyan Manchurian candidate with goals of Islamic world domination?

Must be a tough pill to swallow.

I rather enjoyed the Republican Party’s two-decade-long descent into wacky, quasi-religious, know-nothing nativism. From Pat Robertson and Pat Buchanan to Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann to Rick Perry and Rick Santorum, let’s be honest—the Party’s recent history has resembled a dark comedy scripted by Aaron Sorkin and designed to insure a Democratic hegemony in the Oval Office. Who knows? If it hadn’t been for the intervention of the Supreme Court in 2000, the G.O.P. could conceivably have lost six Presidential elections in a row, instead of four out of six.

Did somebody mention “compassionate conservatism”? Not that I saw. George W. Bush, who built his Presidential career on that slippery but effective slogan, did descend for a moment from his Texas ranch, and his efforts to help the starving millions in Africa, to express his support for immigration reform. A lot of good that did. Together with the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal, David Brooks, and the army of Chamber of Commerce/Silicon Valley lobbyists who supported the Gang of Eight bill, the former President finds himself isolated from the grassroots of his party, which, on this issue, remains staunchly aligned with Rush Limbaugh and what remains of the Minutemen.

For now, the G.O.P. and many of its tribunes on Capitol Hill appear content to ignore this elemental fact of political life. Maybe things will change during the next few months, but I wouldn’t wager on it. More and more, it’s looking like it will take Hillary Clinton, or another Democrat, succeeding Barack Obama in the White House to bring about real changes in the G.O.P.

To put it another way, the great G.O.P. freak show still has a ways to run. From the point of view of the cynical heckler in the cheap seats, that’s just dandy: extremism and nuttiness makes good copy, and it keeps the Republicans out of the White House. The problem is that, diverting as it is, the show is paralyzing the government and doing great damage to the country

Ex-Greenpeacer Patrick Moore questions climate change, challenges liberals
Tuesday, March 4, 2014

As a former Greenpeace insider, Patrick Moore wasn’t surprised by the heated reaction from the left on his explosive testimony about climate change last week before a Senate committee.

Mr. Moore drew headlines for disputing the environmental movement’s doomsday scenario, depicting climate change over the past century as “minor warming” and arguing that “there is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause.”

As a result, Mr. Moore came under fire for “climate denial” from the liberal group Media Matters for America. He has been persona non grata at Greenpeace for years.

Mr. Moore dismisses such criticism as an “ad hominem personal attack that doesn’t have anything to do with the subject at hand.” At the same time, he doesn’t mind taking a swipe at those who advocate drastic emissions reductions in the name of stopping climate change.

“I describe the climate change movement as a combination of an extreme political ideology and a religious cult all rolled into one,” said Mr. Moore.“It’s a very, very dangerous social phenomenon. It causes them to think they have the right to dictate what we do.”

I have to agree with the GOP on ONE thing only: passing bills in parts for real immigration reform. Yet no one has bothered to mention the denial of "tourist birthing" citizenship or "anchor baby" citizenship. Since when do our representatives do their jobs by representing scum from other countries who run drugs, traffic sex slaves, and child labor instead of actual American Citizens? Does anyone else see this as wrong?
Why does our President listen to a bunch of pedophiles from the Vatican on Capitol Hill instead of the victims of those sick crimes the Catholic church covered up? Why not tax these churches and charities getting rid of the whole mess? They siphon money off of a consumerist economy hurting it as a whole and cause more problems (i.e. people depend on charity and opportunity disappears).

Why does every dumb tea bagger who denies basic science and data have to look like Mr. Peanut? The monocle is just too much. Between the fact that you're all old, fat and dying plus Rand Paul's RIDICULOUS hair piece and Rick "oops" Perry's new glasses, it is clearly time to make up with the gay community. You need some style.

This guy is an oil company hack. Not the first hippie to cut his hair for a paycheck 30 years ago.

Make no mistake, the GOP freak show is a riot that I can't get enough of. Just think - in two short years we'll have them all on a stage again raising their hands to questions like "how many of you think Jesus will return and cancel out climate change?" Bachman's running. So is Perry. Huckabee's in too. Let's just keep our fingers crossed for Palin to throw her dumbass in the ring too.

Because think about it - one of them will have to go one-on-one with one of the most brilliant geniuses in the history of politics. And Hillary is also a stone-cold bitch who hasn't ever pulled a punch on an idiot. It could get brutal. It will get ugly.

Fun times ahead.

Obamacare has been active for several years now and no one is scheduled or sentenced to die. Hence, there are no death panels.

Everyone knows grandma is still around. After all, she is actually getting her prescriptions at better prices. Hence, grandma was not thrown under the bus.

Everyone knows that Cigna, Humana, Blue Cross Blue Shield, etc. are private companies. Hence there is no government takeover of health care.

Since the inception of Obamacare, the unemployment rate has fallen. More people are gainfully employed. Hence, Obamacare is not a job killer.

The uninsured rate has fallen. Hence, Obamacare does not cause the loss of insurance in the aggregate.

More liberal facts. Sorry.
