Obama flexes presidential muscle on minimum wage

Obama to raise minimum wage for federal contractors

While President Barack Obama’s attempts to increase the nation’s minimum wage through legislation have stalled in Congress, the White House announced plans on Tuesday to use the president’s executive powers to partially address the problem.

Just hours before the President is scheduled to deliver his fifth State of the Union address, the White House revealed that Obama will issue an executive order to increase the minimum wage for new federal contract workers.

Indiana Anti-Marriage Equality Amendment Gets a Setback

...This evening, the House voted 52-43 to remove the amendment’s second sentence, which explicitly banned civil unions and other marriage-like arrangements for same-sex couples, The Indianapolis Star reports. This makes the measure different from the one both chambers approved in 2011. If the Senate follows suit, or does not approve any version of the amendment, the legislation would have to be reintroduced and passed in two additional, sequential legislative sessions before it could appear on the ballot, forcing supporters to essentially start the proposal process over again. The proposal to change the language came from Rep. Randy Truitt, a Republican...

The President has not put anyone in the poor house. What a stupid accusation, but then that's about all you have apparently.

You may be right. President nobama may not have put anyone in the poor house, but the policy's he espouses have added 15 million more American's to the food stamp program. That is not a problem in his mind, he wants loyal voters those who depend upon government to feed them and give them free health care, and give the rent subsidy's.

Coming up next: President Barack Obama solves inequality? Don’t hold your breath.
http://www.politico.com/story/2014/01/barack-...
He’s building his new agenda around an issue that has been in the making for decades: economic inequality. It’s expected to be the major theme of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, and when Capitol Hill doesn’t act on his ideas, he says he’ll use a “pen and phone” strategy to do what he can without Congress.
But inequality is, well, kind of a big topic — as Obama himself acknowledges. It would require a gigantic response, cutting across a broad swath of issues, everything from education and tax policy to wages, job skills and even the quality of the jobs themselves.(cont.)
..........
The obvious has driven me to abandon previous philosophy in light of facts we should not, nor can I, ignore. I'm positive that the current inequality is NOT how it works in a free market capitalist economy with broad participation. It's very hard for me to imagine why the extremists here don't get it and haven't already signed up in this struggle. It's not as though any of them are elites. Nevertheless, they're blindly stuck on old school mentality and proudly embrace every form of prejudice there is which is known to inflict injury and suffering. Bummer.
Income inequality has increased each year under Obama..........and Hint, Obama has gotten richer each year also. Keep feeding the kitty loons.

Medicare Rx Plan: Overhead Too High?
Congressional Report Criticizes Administrative Costs of Seniors' Prescription Drug Plan / Oct. 16, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/yhs8zwk

WebMD) Insurance company data show that administrative costs and profit taking by insurers are limiting seniors' savings under the Medicare prescription drug benefit, according to a report issued by congressional Democrats.

The report is based on data from a dozen large firms offering Part D coverage, as the Medicare prescription drug benefit is known. It concludes that insurers don't cover prescription drugs as efficiently as other government programs do. The report also says beneficiaries and taxpayers could be saving billions of dollars per year if seniors got their Part D benefits directly from Medicare instead of through insurance companies.

"Privatizing the delivery of the drug benefit has enriched the drug companies and insurance industry at the expense of seniors and taxpayers," says Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which issued the findings.

Republicans and insurance companies refuted the findings, saying that Part D has saved seniors money since it began offering benefits in 2006.

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record
President George W. Bush entered office in 2001 just as a recession was starting, and is preparing to leave in the middle of a long one. That’s almost 22 months of recession during his 96 months in office./ January 9, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/9ylluu
His job-creation record won’t look much better. The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years, a fraction of the 23 million jobs created under President Bill Clinton’s administration and only slightly better than President George H.W. Bush did in his four years in office.
Here’s a look at job creation under each president since the Labor Department started keeping payroll records in 1939. The counts are based on total payrolls between the start of the month the president took office (using the final payroll count for the end of the prior December) and his final December in office.
Because the size of the economy and labor force varies, we also calculate in percentage terms how much the total payroll count expanded under each president. The current President Bush, once taking account how long he’s been in office, shows the worst track record for job creation since the government began keeping records

Ancient Northern Europeans Looked More Like Vanessa Williams Than Aryan Supermen

...an analysis of La Braña 1, a 7,000 year old specimen from the the Mesolithic Period, debunks those who had such a Teutonic predisposition once again; rather than being blonde, the first recovered genome of an European hunter-gatherer shows that they probably had dark skin.

President Bush Holds Town Hall Meeting

Thank you, Jordan (ph).

Well, Jordan (ph), you're not going to believe what state I was in when I heard about the terrorist attack. I was in Florida. And my chief of staff, Andy Card -- actually I was in a classroom talking about a reading program that works. And I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower -- the TV was obviously on, and I use to fly myself, and I said, "There's one terrible pilot." And I said, "It must have been a horrible accident."

But I was whisked off there -- I didn't have much time to think about it, and I was sitting in the classroom, and Andy Card, my chief who was sitting over here walked in and said, "A second plane has hit the tower. America's under attack."

And Jordan (ph), I wasn't sure what to think at first. You know, I grew up in a period of time where the idea of America being under attack never entered my mind -- just like your daddy and mother's mind probably. And I started thinking hard in that very brief period of time about what it meant to be under attack. I knew that when I got all the facts that we were under attack, there would be hell to pay for attacking America.

Obama does the same, IMO of course and he has instilled this culture of lying and deceit in his followers in order to quell any opposition to his tyrannical ways, IMO too.
To me it is the black magic and voodoo of a despot and the dreams of the witch doctor that spawned him.
Not to be outdone by the Fox Ministry of Propaganda's manufactured "crises" involving the IRS, "Benghazi" "fast & furious" and a whole host of other Fascist Reich wing created non-stories, designed to malign and racially characterize this president above any others.

Add to that the Kenyan witchdoctor Saracuda Palin had "lay hands" on her to drive out the demons, as seen in the popular YouTube video of the so-called "Reverend" Muthee, and his Talibangelical, snake charming right wing christian tongue speaking dog and pony show the Reich so loves to engage in....purely for entertainment value for the rest of us, of course.
