Our President has smartly driven Americans apart, made promises on the backs of entitlements, and created an embattled budget that will drive America into bankruptcy. His socialistic tools are Obama care, The National Debt, extreme Government control over our earnings, our health, and our security, and lastly disavowing the Constitution of the United States.
He has driven Americans apart with his pledges to attack income inequality. His version of this is to entitle those who are have-nots. But true Americans understand it is not the Haves versus the Have-nots. It is a division between those who work and those who don’t. It is a division between those who make the correct choices and those who do not. For example, those who go to college, get a degree, and graduate, will earn more than those who do not. Women who have children within the arms of marriage will have more than those who have children out-of-wedlock. Those who work hard and make the right choices earn more than those who do not.
Now our President is driving many Americans into the have not category without their having any choice which is a right!. According to the OBM, 2.5 million jobs will be lost due to Obama care. More will be dependent on the government, unable to drive themselves forward and out of the lower level of the financial basement. He is taking away our freedoms.
Socrates said keep them hungry but don’t let them starve. Is this Obama’s Plan?

There has been much happening enough to keep me away but I cannot stay away any longer.
President Obama has lost his appeal and the Affordable Care Act may have been his undoing. Strange that it wasn’t his lack of support for our true ally, Israel, or his knowledge of the IRS scandal, or the dragging dull economy, or the lack of respect the US has now because of the President’s decisions, or even the current NSA situation. A Federal Judge has presented the NSA with the charge of potential illegitimacy of metadata and its infringement on the 4th amendment.
No, the rising cost of healthcare through the Affordable Care Act and the dangerous outcomes from its regulations will keep this administration in the ditch. These include greater US debt, burdening the healthy to pay for the poor and sick, loss of doctors, and a greater divide between the rich and the poor by the type of healthcare they can afford. The biggest fact is how it hits the pocketbooks of individuals in a big way during a soft unpredictable economy.
The good thing is that the judicial arm of our government is doing the right thing. If the government’s power is not balanced as planned by our forefathers we are in for a dictatorship.

Yes, our founding fathers knew that an imperial government would never listen to the needs of those whose lives and businesses oiled the wheels of the economy. Only the people could insure the continued growth and security within our national borders. They knew that a democratic society with representation from the people was the way to go. Colonial people had a voice in their new government. The happiness of the people drove the government in the direction it needed. There was greed, but most of it lay with the rich and the British Imperialists. Eventually, the colonists refused to let the latter have any voice.
Now we have the kind of government our forefathers sought to avoid. We have a social democracy where nearly half of our population receives entitlements. They are not encouraged to seek education, start a business, or take a job. They believe the government will take care of them. So why work? Will our government help the poor survive the current economic maelstrom?
This maelstrom is fueled by deficit spending, treating terrorism as workplace violence, and an unbalanced budget followed by the perfect storm to hit us March 1st: Obamacare. Obamacare will bankrupt America.
What are our choices? We need a smaller government. In the past churches helped those in need of clothing, food, or jobs. Now they do some of this but they also spend a great deal of their money on the poor in foreign countries. We need it here. Could we not take care of poverty through our faith and private enterprise?
Greed is the root of our problem. When an organization or business gets greedy they want the money all to themselves. They do not sense the responsibility of helping others because of the greed that chokes them. Greed may be the downfall of America.
That is what it is-slavery. We have no freedom to choose our healthcare any longer. Because of Obama care we are forced to take a silver, gold or bronze plan. The old plans that suited us just perfectly are gone; not available, adiós.
We are on a fixed income, early social security and one pension. My husband’s current insurance premium is $335.50 per month, barely affordable. The new Obama care plan which closely mirrors his old plan has a premium of $662.02, a 97 percent increase.
The catastrophic plan they offer has a $ 6500 deductible and its premium is $472 or a 40 percent increase. No, we are not eligible for the subsidy.
The argument in Congress is a valid one. Our president wants to hamstring the middle class and place everyone on equal status with the working class. We were once working class but moved up with our careers to a secure and comfortable upper middle class status. The economy supported by this administration to provide subsidies and welfare programs has destroyed our well-being. Now we are where Obama wants us: dependant, subsidized, and in need of a powerful government to take care of us.
In 1776 the new American people established a moderate government because they no longer wanted to be ruled by a King and his personal agenda. Revolt! Do not succumb to this servitude!
We told our insurance provider that we could not afford either plan. We said good-bye and will seek quotes from other insurers.
Oh by the way be ready to stay on hold. We could not apply online for his new policy. Our Insurer’s website on October 1, 2013 continued to show the old plans like the advantage plan 2 for $310.00 a month which was perfect for us.
Who wants the government shutdown to happen? The Republicans say the President wants it to make his political competitors look bad. The Democrats say the Republicans want to shut it down making the President look bad. Which ever one is right, we are still in trouble.
Our growth continues to limp along. Large companies are holding on to their money because they refuse to spend it on new government regulations and Obama care. Certain medical facilities are shutting down because they cannot help their patients and pay their staff under Obama care.The world-renowned Cleveland Clinic said on Wednesday it would cut jobs and slash five to six percent of its $6 billion annual budget to prepare for President Barack Obama’s health reforms.
More people than ever are on food stamps. They can’t find jobs. There are fewer and fewer career type positions available and if one is looking for work he will find that there are only part-time positions without benefits. I know two young women who are living with their parents and working three part-time jobs because they cannot find fulltime work. They are both engineers. Yet everyone disagrees on the solution.
Is a Detroit economy where we are headed? Government spending is greater than the income coming in. If that doesn’t change, we too are headed for bankruptcy, no jobs, no services, no healthcare and no retirement.
Meanwhile, the large businesses, the politicians and the social hyenas continue to fight while not looking at our real problems.

The president told us that if we like our insurance plan or our doctor we would be able to keep them under the Affordable Care Act. This is not true. My husband will not be allowed to keep his insurance under Obamacare. He may also loose his primary care physician.
The IRS is responsible for the targeting of conservative groups, prohibiting them from operating under a tax exempt status. How did they determine which organizations to target? If the words Patriot, Constitution, or Tea Party are in their names they are not to be granted a tax exempt status.
So our president then is dishonest, unpatriotic, and does not believe in the Constitution nor does he support equality.
Here are two good questions.
Despite questions and furious accusations laid on the IRS which hid this targeting scheme from Congress, the IRS continues to target conservative groups. Who made the IRS god?
The IRS official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations from 2009 to 2012 now runs the Affordable Care Act. Her name is Sarah Hall Ingram. Do you trust her?
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 7 million Americans will lose their coverage because of Obamacare. North Carolina Congressman Pittenger reports that Blue Cross Blue Shield has announced a 284 % increase for some North Carolina insurance premiums due to Obamacare. Small business owners are concerned that costly Obamacare regulations will drive them out of business. So can someone explain the word affordable in Affordable Care Act?
I am concerned for two reasons: first most of us can not afford a 284 percent increase on middle income or retirement income. Secondly I do not want federal help. I understand that if you make a certain amount of money you will be able to receive entitlements from the government to assist in paying these steep premiums. In my opinion, it is another way for the government to control us. The government takes more and more control of our lives each day. Our government tells us what we can eat, how we should protect ourselves, what kind of healthcare we are allowed to have, and even legislates our morality.
If healthcare for the uninsured is something we need, let’s start over with a plan that does not hurt more people than it helps. Please research the information on Obamacare and send your congressman an email or letter in support of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
