It's my bet - and I'd bet the farm - that at least 3 out of those 4 in 10 Americans who believe Obamacare has already been repealed live in the most liberal states and voted for Obama.

Liberals in the most liberal parts of the country aren't paying attention because they believe they voted for the right person - so what could go wrong?

U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, who won Missouri's GOP Senate primary earlier this month and will face incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in November's general election, said Sunday that he misspoke when he claimed "legitimate rape" rarely resulted in pregnancy.&#8232;
Answering a question about whether or not he thought abortion should be legal in the case of rape, Akin explained his opposition by citing unnamed bodily responses he said prevented pregnancy.&#8232;
"First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," Akin said of rape-induced pregnancy in an interview with KTVI. A clip of the interview was posted online by the liberal super PAC American Bridge.&#8232;
"If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," Akin continued. He did not provide an explanation for what constituted "legitimate rape."
He added: "But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child."&#8232;

I could be wrong, but I have to believe most Democrats want to start with a clean slate in 2016.

Most are just hoping they can survive until then. Obamacare is the next new reality.

Taking OBAMACARE of Business

Washington has given just shy of a billion dollars to California “to set up its insurance exchange.” That’s not chump change, even in Obama’s America. So what’s it been spent on? Answer:“Outreach”:

* California lawmakers passed a law (Senate Bill 35) requiring that voter registration be part of the health insurance exchange.

Last month, Covered California announced $37 million in grants to 48 organizations to build public awareness about the opening of the health exchange on Oct. 1.

OF THE 48 ORGANIZATIONS THAT GOT GRANTS, ONLY A HANDFUL ARE HEALTH-CARE RELATED. THE CALIFORNIA NAACP RECEIVED $600,000 TO DO DOOR-TO-DOOR CANVASSING AND PRESENTATIONS AT COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

* Service Employees International Union, which says its mission is “economic justice,” received two grants totaling $2 million to make phone calls, robo-calls and go door to door.

* The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor AFL-CIO got $1 million for door-to-door, one-on-one education and social networking. It describes its role as “engaging in both organizing and political campaigns, electing pro-union and pro-worker candidates.”

OBAMACARE WON’T ADD A SINGLE DOCTOR OR NURSE OR EVEN HOSPITAL JANITOR, BUT IT DOES DIVERT STAGGERING SUMS OF MONEY TO DEMOCRATIC PARTY INTEREST GROUPS ENTIRELY UNRELATED TO HEALTH CARE, AND THAT’S WHAT MATTERS.

Taking OBAMACARE of Business

The supposed rationale for Obamacare was that Americans pay more for health care than any other country, and yet too many of its citizens get none at all.

On the eve of implementation, two things can now be said for certain: Health care will be more expensive than ever, and worse than ever.

This will be a disaster beyond the wildest dreams of the British NHS or any other socialized system.

The Affordable Care Act was always exclusively about destroying the private insurance risk pools making premiums prohibitively expensive while accelerating the mandate-driven fascism of the US health care system with the goal of making single-payer federal leviathan health care the only functional game in town.

With this administration, political racketeering has become the modus operandi of the entire institutional left. Obama doesn't have much of a public CV but when it comes to organizing rent seekers, looters, and thugs, he's the One!

The immigration bill is full of this same thing -- diversion of funds and responsibilities to "community organizers," labor unions, and other Democratic party interest groups.

The way the bill is written now, those private Democratic party interest groups will get to re-write the material on American government that new citizens are supposed to learn and know.

This is on top of giving the Democrats 40 million new voters over the next couple of decades.

The Affordable Care Act was never affordable nor is it about care. It is a liberal boondoggle to cement their hold on the low information voter.

Senators gained on Thursday what they clearly see as a crucial new ally in their quest to pass an immigration measure: Bill O'Reilly.
The Fox News host announced that, after the completion of a new Senate deal on border security, he was in favor of the bill's passage.
"It is time for the USA to pass immigration reform," he said. "For years I’ve called for a more secure southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach. At least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law."
O'Reilly and Fox News have been the subject of an intense, personal lobbying campaign by members of the so-called "Gang of Eight" who are working on the immigration bill and feel that the network's support is crucial if the GOP wants its base to accept the measure . The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza recently wrote that senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and others have talked privately to O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Neil Cavuto to get them on side.
On Thursday, O'Reilly said that he had spoken to Rubio earlier in the day.
"Senator Rubio told me on the phone today that it would be at least 13 years—13—before people in the country illegally right now could gain full legal working status, and even longer to achieve citizenship," he said.
