That ought to make Americans feel better about their government. Why not just put razor wire on the fence. Then electrify it. Then mine the south lawn.
Oh, I think this is on the money. All hell is going to break loose on foreign policy in the GOP as we get closer to 2016. Anyone who is studying political science right now in school is just going to have a blast over the next couple of years as this is slugged out. Grab the popcorn.
I am almost giddy.
Yep, that’s the truth. Thank God for the Internet. You know, maybe it’s not such a good idea to have the FCC screw it up in the name of “net neutrality.”
This video is from a recent talk done at the University of Pennsylvania by Jonathan Gruber, the so called architect of Obamacare.
Guess what? The policy guys didn’t really know what was in the healthcare law and that was by design. Why? Because it created all kinds of places for people to hide before the ACA passed. As Gruber explains in the attached video, if the Obamacare taxes had actually been called “taxes” the bill would have never passed. If people had actually been told how much their premiums were going to go up (and just you wait, the next few years are going to be brutal if this abomination isn’t rolled back) Obamacare would never have been passed.
Watch this short clip and just take in the arrogance of this fellow. Just feel the contempt he has for the people he’s supposedly helping with Obamacare. He knew he was going to hurt a large swathe of the country, but he didn’t give a damn. Those people, mostly middle class suburbanites, probably deserved it for their backward bourgeois ways anyway. Screw those people.
Ms. Jarrett is a product of the Chicago political game. She is a classic crony capitalist. (Though she would probably not characterize herself as ANY kind of “capitalist” I’ll bet.) Sometimes she pulled the Obamas along, other times she rode their coat tails. But she was always there. But now in the wake of an historic defeat at the hands of the Republicans the generally quite liberal and absolutely insider Politico is calling for her head. (Senior staffers all through the Democratic Party are not happy. That this is the lead article on Monday morning in Politico is an indication of that.)
If the GOP was seen as a party of genuine free enterprise (I know, don’t laugh), which made the case to all people that free markets and free prices generate prosperity and that government intervention and cronyism lead to stagnation and despair, the party could make serious progress with non-white voters.
The big insurers have found a nice big(ger) taxpayer funded stream of income in Medicaid under Obamacare. The giant companies are hoping that politicians who will expand the program on the state level will get elected tomorrow.
Say what you want about Nader, but the guy isn’t bought and sold. And for someone who has made his life in Washington DC that is saying one heck of a lot.
More fallout from the Sharyl Attkinson book. She says she was illegally tracked on her computer and that according to a source at least one “government entity” had access to her Skype account, financial records, and pretty much everything else.
She also said that someone planted classified documents in her hard drive.
Pretty interesting to see them all listed out like this. I will say however that the author thinks taking nearly a week to get on the job of “Ebola Czar” is perfectly reasonable. You know, so what’s 5 days in an emergency which threatens to grow exponentially? There’s the whole political hack process at the White House HR department. Got to get the right approvals and make sure the paperwork is filled out.
