Obamacare's Death of a Thousand Rate Hikes
8/25/2014

Get ready to pay more for health insurance next year, compliments of Obamacare.

A new analysis from PricewaterhouseCoopers projects that average premiums for policies sold through Obamacare’s exchanges will increase 7.5 percent in 2015.

In nearly one-third of the 29 states that PwC investigated, premiums will rise by double digits. In Indiana, the average increase will be 15.4 percent. In Kansas, it’s 13.6 percent. Florida’s insurance commissioner says premiums are set to climb 13.2 percent.

For this latest round of premium shocks, consumers can thank Obamacare’s unwieldy mix of taxes, regulations, and mandates.

A Wall Street Journal report surmises that the most popular insurers will levy the largest rate hikes. In the 10 states the Journal examined, the largest insurer had proposed rate hikes of between 8.5 percent and 22.8 percent. Oregon’s Moda Health Plan, which accounts for three-quarters of Obamacare enrollees, is seeking a 12.5 percent boost for 2015.

All these increases in premiums come on top of 2014's hikes. A study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that Obamacare has pushed premiums up by as much as 28 percent this year. A report from the Manhattan Institute put the increase at 49 percent.

Fed: Under Obama, only the richest 10 percent saw incomes rise
September 4, 2014

Under President Obama, the richest 10 percent were the only income group of Americans to see their median incomes rise, according to a survey released this week by the Federal Reserve.

The Fed data covered the years 2010-2013, during which period Mr. Obama constantly campaigned against income inequality and won re-election by painting his Republican rival as a tool of Wall Street plutocrats.

Man In Pennsylvania Democrat’s [Tom Wolf] Ad Starred In Torture Porn
Sept. 8, 2014
“They are to be milked, bred, and much, much worse!”

Alan Benyak, an actor who stars in Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf’s ad “Jeeps” also had a lead role as “Mr. Cannibal” in a twisted porn film called Breeding Farm.

In the ad, Benyak — who is in fact a former Army lawyer and former judicial candidate whose Central Pennsylvania practice reportedly includes real estate and estate planning— delivers the message that Wolf served in the Peace Corps.

His theatrical career took a different turn. Breeding Farm’s plot, according to an online summary:“Four friends are kidnapped by a mysterious man. The friends wake up in a basement, and realize they are part of something horrifying. A human breeding farm. They are to be milked, bred, and much, much worse!”

A President Whose Assurances Have Come Back to Haunt Him
SEPT. 8, 2014

When President Obama addresses the nation on Wednesday to explain his plan to defeat Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria, it is a fair bet he will not call them the “JV team.”

Nor does he seem likely to describe Iraq as “sovereign, stable and self-reliant” with a “representative government.” And presumably he will not assert after more than a decade of conflict that “the tide of war is receding.”

As he seeks to rally Americans behind a new military campaign in the Middle East, Mr. Obama finds his own past statements coming back to haunt him.

Time and again, he has expressed assessments of the world that in the harsh glare of hindsight look out of kilter with the changed reality he now confronts.

Obama the JV President

Wilkes Barre, PA

#4361 Sep 9, 2014
In January President Barack Hussein Obama tauntingly and needlessly called the Islamic State fighters "JV" (Junior Varsity) as if ISIS' holocaustic march across the middle east is a basketball game.

Really, Mr. President? JV?

ISIS is slaughtering Christians, other Muslims, and entire villages while proudly beheading Americans. They've promised to bring their barbarity to America's shores.

Now Obama denies that he ever referred to the ISIS troglodytes as 'JV.'

The Washington Post gave Obama four 'Pinocchios' for that obvious lie.

The Tampa Bay Tribune, too polite to call Obama a liar, said Obama's denial of calling ISIS "JV" is false.

If Barack Hussein Obama's lips are moving he's lying.
