SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS: THE TRANS-PACIFIC TRADE (TPP) AGREEMENT MUST BE DEFEATED

15289988-construction-worker-curled-up 10 Ways that TPP would hurt Working Families

by Bernie Sanders

1. TPP will allow corporations to outsource even more jobs overseas.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, if the TPP is agreed to, the U.S. will lose more than130,000 jobs to Vietnam and Japan alone. But that is just the tip of the iceberg.

·∙ Service Sector Jobs will be lost. At a time when corporations have already outsourced over 3 million service sector jobs in the U.S., TPP includes rules that will make it even easier for corporate America to outsource call centers; computer programming; engineering; accounting; and medical diagnostic jobs.

·∙ Manufacturing jobs will be lost. As a result of NAFTA, the U.S. lost nearly 700,000 jobs. As a result of Permanent Normal Trade Relations with China, the U.S. lost over 2.7 million jobs. As a result of the Korea Free Trade Agreement, the U.S. has lost 70,000 jobs. The TPP would make matters worse by providing special benefits to firms that offshore jobs and by reducing the risks associated with operating in low-wage   countries.

2. U.S. sovereignty will be undermined by giving corporations the right to challenge our laws before international tribunals.

The TPP creates a special dispute resolution process that allows corporations to challenge any domestic laws that could adversely impact their “expected future profits.”

These challenges would be heard before UN and World Bank tribunals which could require taxpayer compensation to corporations.

This process undermines our sovereignty and subverts democratically passed laws including those dealing with labor, health, and the environment.

3. Wages, benefits, and collective bargaining will be threatened.

NAFTA, CAFTA, PNTR with China, and other free trade agreements have helped drive down the wages and benefits of American workers and have eroded collective bargaining rights.

The TPP will make the race to the bottom worse because it forces American workers to compete with desperate workers in Vietnam where the minimum wage is just 56 cents an hour.

4. Our ability to protect the environment will be undermined. The TPP will allow corporations to challenge any law that would adversely impact their future profits. Pending claims worth over $14 billion have been filed based on similar language in other trade agreements. Most of these claims deal with challenges to environmental laws in a number of countries. The TPP will make matters even worse by giving corporations the right to sue any of the nations that sign onto the TPP. These lawsuits would be heard in international tribunals bypassing domestic courts.

5. Food Safety Standards will be threatened.

The TPP would make it easier for countries like Vietnam to export contaminated fish and seafood into the U.S. The FDA has already prevented hundreds of seafood imports from TPP countries because of salmonella, e-coli, methyl-mercury and drug residues. But the FDA only inspects 1-2 percent of food

imports and will be overwhelmed by the vast expansion of these imports if the TPP is agreed to.

6. Buy America laws could come to an end.

The U.S. has several laws on the books that require the federal government to buy goods and services that are made in America or mostly made in this country. Under TPP, foreign corporations must be given equal access to compete for these government contracts with companies that make products in America. Under TPP, the U.S. could not even prevent companies that have horrible human rights records from receiving government contracts paid by U.S. taxpayers.

7. Prescription drug prices will increase, access to life saving drugs will decrease, and the profits of drug companies will go up.

Big pharmaceutical companies are working hard to ensure that the TPP extends the monopolies they have for prescription drugs by extending their patents (which currently can last 20 years or more). This would expand the profits of big drug companies, keep drug prices artificially high, and leave millions of people around the world without access to life saving drugs. Doctors without Borders stated that “the TPP agreement is on track to become the most harmful trade pact ever for access to medicines in developing countries.”

8. Wall Street would benefit at the expense of everyone else.Under TPP, governments would be barred from imposing “capital controls” that have been successfully used to avoid financial crises. These controls range from establishing a financial speculation tax to limiting the massive flows of speculative capital flowing into and out of countries responsible for the Asian financial crisis in the 1990s. In other words, the TPP would expand the rights and power of the same Wall Street firms that nearly destroyed the world economy just five years ago and would create the conditions for more financial instability in the future.

Last year, I co-sponsored a bill with Sen. Harkin to create a Wall Street speculation tax of just 0.03 percent on trades of derivatives, credit default swaps, and large amounts of stock. If TPP were enacted, such a financial speculation tax may be in violation of this trade agreement.

9. The TPP would reward authoritarian regimes like Vietnam that systematically violate human rights.

The State Department, the U.S. Department of Labor, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International have all documented Vietnam’s widespread violations of basic international standards for human rights. Yet, the TPP would reward Vietnam’s bad behavior by giving it duty free access to the U.S. market.

10. The TPP has no expiration date, making it virtually impossible to repeal.

Once TPP is agreed to, it has no sunset date and could only be altered by a consensus of all of the countries that agreed to it. Other countries, like China, could be allowed to join in the future. For example, Canada and Mexico joined TPP negotiations in 2012 and Japan joined last year.

Obama can veto bills, of course, and he surely will. But what he can’t do is shove insane, left-wing nonsense down the nation’s collective throat. That’s over

demagogue

Enough.

Dan Calabrese on Wednesday November 5th, 2014

The American public realized not long after the 2012 election that they had blown it. Given the opportunity to fire Barack Obama and turn the federal government back in a wise direction, they should have seized the moment and done just that. Instead, they got caught up nonsense like Big Bird and “binders full of women”, and in not liking rich, CEO-ish Republicans, and as a result they dropped the ball and stuck the nation with four more years of an unserious, unqualified, inept president.

Oops. Sadly, the Constitution doesn’t offer a mechanism for correcting that mistake. Just don’t do it again, boneheads.

But what the electorate could do, it did last night. In essence, America told Obama to step aside. By giving Republicans at least a 52-seat majority in the U.S. Senate, and probably its biggest House majority since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president, the nation sent Obama to the sidelines. Not a single piece of legislation will reach his desk for the remainder of his presidency without massive Republican backing.

Obama can veto bills, of course, and he surely will. But what he can’t do is shove insane, left-wing nonsense down the nation’s collective throat. That’s over.

He also can’t hide behind Senate inaction like he did when Harry Reid controlled the upper chamber and routinely bottled up any piece of legislation that came out of the Republican House – not even allowing commitee hearings or floor debates, let alone votes.

The nation has passed judgment on Barack Obama’s presidency, and the verdict is thumbs down. People were not fooled by recent GDP growth numbers or falling gas prices. They were able to assess a six-year record of sluggish growth, falling labor force participation, rising food stamp dependence, hostility toward business and meddling in private markets – particularly health care – and recognize that it’s made things worse and not better. They were able to look at America’s declining influence in an increasingly chaotic world and recognize that a president who rejects America’s global leadership role doesn’t do any good for America or the rest of the world. And they were able to see that juvenile blather about the “war on women” and so forth demonstrates complete unseriousness from a party that said it would govern, not endlessly campaign.

The media tried its best to protect Obama by ignoring stories like the IRS scandal, but in an era of alternative and social media, it didn’t work. People knew that instead of serving the public, the Obama White House was using government agencies to serve itself at the expense of anyone who opposed them or their agenda.

Liberals will offer predictable excuses, of course. They’ll say it was just an anti-incumbent election, or that it reflected nonspecific “voter anger,” or that it was the product of too many Democrats defending seats in red states. That will come as a surprise to the conservative blue state governors who won re-election last night. Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Florida all joined in the mistake of electing and re-electing Obama, and also put conservatives back in their statehouses last night. This was not an “anti-incumbent” nor was it an “anger” election. It was a rejection of Obama and of liberalism, pure and simple.

Today, Obama is relegated to a reactive presidency, except to the extent that he can go around Congress and use unconstitutional executive orders in lieu of passing legislation – and given his track record you can be sure he will try. But now when he does so, he will no longer have Harry Reid protecting him by refusing to look into it in the Senate.

SupremeCourtsReasonForExistingAlso, in the event there is a Supreme Court vacancy in the next two years, Obama will not be able to appoint an insane left-wing Justice with the assistance of a Democrat majority.

This is not to say it will be easy for the Republican majority. They will surely face shrieking about “extremism” from day one, and of course they still have to contend with Obama’s veto pen. But we can expect real budgets, real investigations and real policy progress. Obama has been essentially neutered by a nation that realizes it should have done so two years ago, but did what it could now to make up for the error.

I know many conservatives had little confidence in John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. I share their skepticism. So I’ll tell you this: A Facebook friend who is tight with the Republican establishment in Washington has been saying for the longest time that if the GOP were ever to control both the House and the Senate, then we would see what stalwart conservatives both of these men really are.

Well. Go.

Mark Udall can’t run from his official voting record

85px-UdallUdall206165_453413278032501_108773658_n Udall one of the nation’s top donation recipients from Goldman Sachs and votes for bank bailouts

Six secrets Mark Udall doesn’t want you to
know … and the media refuses to publicize!

  • Mark Udall is married to Maggie Fox. Who? Maggie Fox. If you wonder why she uses a different name than her husband, She is a radical environmentalist that equates use of carbon based fuel to terrorism.
  •  Mark Udall is a member of the “bankster party” … he is one of the nation’s top donation recipients from Goldman Sachs and then votes for bank bailouts and against stricter banking regulations!
  • Mark Udall accepts dirty money from Jon Corzine, convicted Wall Street swindler, and refuses to give it back when confronted!
  • soros picMark Udall parties with billionaire environmentalist super liberal George Soros clone, Tom Steyart, takes his money, then votes the way he is told … “no” on Keystone XL Pipeline, “yes” on more EPA regulations, “yes” on cap and trade, “no” on fossil fuels … this in Colorado where energy production is the backbone of our economy!
  • Votes for the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty which would prohibit private gun ownership in the United States!  (Thanks Hillary)
  • Mark Udall votes to give free college scholarships to illegal aliens in the U.S., votes to give free medical care to illegals in the U.S. and votes to allow illegal parents of children born in the U.S. to become citizens based on the “anchor baby” concept. You see, a child born in this country automatically becomes a U.S. citizen, even if born to “illegal” parents. The parents of this child then apply for citizenship based on the anchor baby provision, whereby citizenship is given to the parents!
  • Votes for the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty which would prohibit private gun ownership in the United States!

    While Rome burns, Udall fiddles.Udall has voted against earmarks four times in the last two years, true to his big spending ways. He has put over a half billion dollars of “earmark pork” into the budget and now during the election year he rushes to add his name on Tom Coburn’s anti-earmark bill. What a hypocrite. Udall tells us he likes to judge people based on their actions not words. Well, that makes Mark either a hypocrite or a liar.

    As a Congressional big spender, Mark Udall voted for increase of entitlement programs and welfare programs, increased defense spending that explode the National Debt from $5 trillion to $17 trillion in the last seven years.

    Wants the United Nations to dictate what weapons, if any, would be available in the United States.As a Congressman, Mark Udall votes to raise the debt ceiling every time yet boasts he is for fiscal responsibility.

    obamacare thousands of pagesVoted for ObamaCare that caused 380,000 insurance policies in Colorado to be cancelled, and premiums to skyrocket. In spite of overwhelming public opposition to this 10 trillion dollar boondoggle, he said he would vote for it again,

    As a Congressman, continues to support outsourcing of American jobs and make it more expensive for American companies to stay in the U.S. and hire U.S. workers. Also kept taxes high to discourage domestic investment by corporate America.

    With all the pressing problems facing our country the best piece of legislation Udall can come up with is HR 5639: Physical activity guidelines for Americans Act of 2008.

    Udall has passed legislation that favors big banks over small banks thus reducing credit lines for local business in their communities.

    As a Congressman, votes to prop up failed American companies (General Motors, Solyndra) that didn’t make products people wanted to buy.

    Voted “Yes” to $1 trillion worth of stimulus spending.

    Mark Udall accepted more money from banking interests than 92 other senators (read here) … and then voted to repeal S. 1282  Glass-Steagall Act of 2013 (read here). Repeal of this act allowed banks to engage in risky “business” ventures that caused the trillion dollar bank bailouts and depression of 2008, that continues to this day.

    Udall supports Federal Reserve policies that transfers money to banks, the stock market, big corporations, and Wall Street, and decimates main street.

    Rubber stamp yes vote on Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernache, Janet Yellen (all disciples of loose money policies that prop up the banks, the stock market, financial institutions, and allows U.S. government its spending binges).

    Rated 15% by the Christian Coalition indicating an anti-family voting record.

    Udall weak on addressing ways to cut down on gun control violence such as stricter laws and sentencing for those involved in crimes, breaking up gangs and criminal organizations, providing more mental health counseling, providing more gun safety and training for gun owners.

    Ethanol Destroys the Environment (read here). Mark Udall supports ethanol. Does that make him anti-environment?

    Votes “No” on reporting illegal aliens who receive medical treatment in U.S. Votes for Pathway to Citizenship for illegal entrants into U.S. Udall refuses to address anchor baby law that lets anyone born in the U.S. become a U.S. citizen regardless of their parents citizenship.

    Voted for DREAM Act to give college scholarships to sons and daughters of illegal immigrants and grant them citizenship.

    Refuses to lower corporate tax rates so American companies can come back to the U.S., open factories and stores, and hire American workers. The corporate tax rate for business in the United States is highest in the world. American business are saddled to pay healthcare, workers compensation, social security taxes and other payroll taxes that make them less competitive in a world economy.

    male-crying-100100961Udall watches from the sidelines as the middle class has taken a hosing by government policies that help the super rich  and taxes the middle class through higher cost for gasoline, food, utilities, and housing.

    Voted for Dodd Frank that doesn’t regulate big banks or Wall Street but encourages big banks to get bigger by buying out little banks. Under Udall’s tenure the justice dept still hasn’t prosecuted a single criminal suit against the banksters who brought the U.S. na king system down in 2008, and hasn’t done anything about the two government backed mortgage companies (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) that made bad loans and started the debacle of 2008.Talk the talk on the middle class, but doesn’t walk the walk.

    Voted again (May 2014) against GMO labeling…on the side of corporate monopolies that are only after profits.  Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) when fed to animals in labs cause sterility and death.  Oh well, I guess Mark knows best, we should not have the right to know how our food is being altered, irradiated and poisoned with God Knows what.

    Udall’s votes decimates the American family by devaluing the currency, increasing the cost of good and services, and taxing all income that would be better left in the wallets of those who earn the money.

    Udall went to a college that has spawned numerous notorious ecoterrorists and he couldn’t care less about the ranchers or their land that feeds families, or the ranching heritage .

    He is a two-bit liberal elitist who has no regard whatsoever for Farmers and Ranchers.or their property rights. He is a career politician who has not only never created a job but done nothing but sign the back of government checks for most of his career

    Mark Udall is a career politician and Washington insider who is running for office, but can’t run from his official voting record. Make an educated vote, not an emotional vote.

October 14, 2014 12:00 AM Local Elections with Lasting National Import
What’s at stake this November is the president’s vision for remaking America.

By Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His website is http://www.tsowell.com   thomas sowell

What is the overriding national issue that makes this year’s elections so crucial?

That issue is whether, despite all the lawless edicts of President Obama, threatening one-man rule, we can still salvage enough of the Constitution to remain a free, democratic nation.

Barack Obama will be on his way out in two years, but if he can appoint enough federal judges who share his contempt for the Constitution’s limits on federal government power in general and presidential powers in particular, then the United States of America can continue on the path to becoming another banana republic, even after Obama has left the White House.

President Obama understands how high the stakes are, which is why he is out fundraising all across the country — seemingly all the time — even though he has no more elections to face himself. Obama came to power saying that he was going to fundamentally change the United States of America — and he intends to do it, even after he is gone, by giving lifetime appointments as federal judges to people who share his view that this country’s institutions and values are fundamentally wrong, and need to be scrapped and replaced by his far-left vision.

If only Obama’s critics and opponents understood this momentous issue as clearly as he does.

The issue is whether “we the people,” as designated by the Constitution, continue free to live our own lives as we see fit and to determine what laws and policies we want to live under.

President Obama’s vision is very different. In his vision, our betters in Washington shall simply order us to live as they want us to live — telling us what medical insurance we can have, what doctors we can go to, what political groups shall be favored by the Internal Revenue Service, with more of the same coming in the years ahead, long after Obama has left the White House.

Critics who deplore President Obama’s foreign policies in general – and his weak response to the Islamic State threat in particular – as showing incompetence and who see his incessant fundraising as just a weird distraction fail to understand how different his priorities are from theirs.

Barack Obama understands clearly that his ability to fundamentally remake what he has long seen as a deeply defective and corrupt America in the image of his far-left vision depends crucially on having control of the Senate that has the power to confirm his appointments of federal judges with lifetime tenure. His fundraising is key to maintaining the Democrats’ Senate majority.

Foreign policy is subordinated to Obama’s overriding ideological vision. The president will not risk losing this year’s congressional elections by taking military actions that will alienate his political base. Token military actions can minimize the political losses from other voters.

That people will die while he stalls on military action is a price he is willing to pay. His ordering thousands of American troops into Ebola-infested Liberia shows the same ideologically driven callousness.

ebola-dead-body-guinea-liberia_si

The big question is whether those who wish to preserve a free America see the issue and the stakes as clearly as Barack Obama does — and see that this is the overriding national issue of our time, with our votes for senators not to be confused by local issues.

Republicans Need a Direction

11044834-republican-logo

by:Peggy Noonan

In a year when Republicans are operating in such an enviable political environment, why aren’t their U.S. Senate candidates holding big and impressive leads? Why does it look close? Why are party professionals getting worried?

The Democratic president is unpopular. What progress can be claimed in the economy is tentative, uneven, feels temporary. True unemployment is bad and people who have jobs feel stressed and hammered by costs. Americans are less optimistic than they’ve ever been in the modern era, with right-track/wrong-track numbers upside down. Scandals, war, uncertain leadership—all this has yielded a sense the whole enterprise of the past six years just did not work.

But Republicans aren’t achieving lift-off. The metaphor used most often is the wave. If Republicans can’t make, catch and ride a wave in an environment like this, they’ve gone from being the stupid party to the stupid loser party.

What’s wrong?

An accomplished establishment Republican this week shrugged and noted the obvious: Every race is state-by-state and has its own realities; some candidates prove good and some are disappointing. Another establishment figure, an elected officeholder, observed with satisfaction that Republicans in Washington have done a good job making sure local candidates weren’t nutty persons who said nutty things.

But is that enough? Kellyanne Conway of The Polling Co. says no: “It’s not enough for voters to have a candidate who doesn’t say something controversial. They need something compelling.”

The party’s consultants say it comes down to money: Republicans are raising less than Democrats and need more. But Ms. Conway notes that in 2012, well-funded Republicans George Allen, Connie Mack, Linda McMahon, Josh Mandel and Tommy Thompson all went down to defeat. It’s not all about money.

The question this week is whether the election should be nationalized, lifted beyond the local and given power by clear stands on some agreed-upon national issues. Those who resist say the election has already been nationalized by Barack Obama. His and his administration’s unpopularity are all the unifying force that’s needed.

But put aside the word “nationalized.” Shouldn’t the Republican Party make it clear right now exactly what it is for and what it intends to do?

Here the views of Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and much of the Washington-based GOP election apparatus have held sway. If you are explicit in terms of larger policy ideas, you just give Democrats something to shoot at. Don’t give them a target. ObamaCare, the foreign-policy mess, the IRS—these are so unpopular they’re more than enough reason to vote Republican. Don’t give voters a reason not to!

This sounds like the hard practicality of big-time politics, and it has a certain logic. But it doesn’t take into account some underlying realities.

**One is the rising air of public crisis. Many voters, especially in the Republican base, feel America is under threat and we are losing our country. They feel they are fighting to save it. In a time of alarm, vagueness doesn’t seem clever but oblivious—out of touch and unaware.

A second reality is the GOP’s brand problem. Everyone knows about it and is tired of saying it; the Democrats continue exploiting it because it’s almost all they have. Moreover, history suggests a political brand problem gets resolved only by a vivid figure like FDR or Reagan, who through their popularity and power changed how people saw their parties. Republican politicians can’t sit around waiting for a vivid figure to come along, so they don’t talk about the problem anymore.

The cliché is that Republicans are old, white, don’t like women or science, are narrow, numeric and oppose all modern ways. The cliché probably isn’t as powerful as it used to be because the president has made so many new Republicans, but it’s still there.

But Republicanism right now has a special duty to be dynamic and serious. It has to paint a world of the possible. It has to make people feel that things can be made better. The spirit animating the party should be “This way, we will take that hill and hold it. Together, now, let’s march.” To rouse people you have to tell them your plans.

And it would be especially welcome at this moment. The Democratic Party in the last years of Obama is running on empty, pushing old buttons. To judge by their current campaigns, their only bullets are mischief and malice. The mischief includes a wholly fictional Republican war on women and the malice involves class-mongering and “check your privilege” manipulation. Only the young seem idealistic; older Democrats seem like a sated force.

18547381-strong-determination-managing-risk-and-uncertainty-with-a-large-elephant-climbing-a-rope-high-in-theThe Democrats’ reputation is suffering, but the point here is the Republicans’. When you have a poor brand, do you spend all your time saying the other guy is worse? Or do you start rebuilding your reputation? In politics that means saying what you are for, not what you are against, and what you will do, not what the other guy will do if the voters let him.

A third reason to go with the idea of avowed meaning is the suspicion some voters must have that while to vote Democratic this year is to vote for the potential of more trouble, to vote Republican may be a vote for nothing changing or improving very much.

Both parties in Washington use stasis as a strategy. I suspect there are Republicans on the ground who intuit the Republican version of this. Republican inertia was outlined to me this spring, ironically, by a GOP congressman:

The 2010 election, he explained, was about winning the House, don’t rock the boat. Twenty twelve was all about the presidential—again don’t rock the boat, don’t mess things up with anything controversial, win the presidency to effect change. In 2014, he said, it’s all about the Senate—win it, hold the House. Then in 2016 it’s going to be all about the presidential and holding the Senate. In 2018, he said, it will be all about holding Congress for a Republican president or against a Democratic one. Then in 2020 it will be all about the presidential.

After that, he said, we might do something!

His point was that party professionals think the party has to keep winning, so—wait. For what?

Republican political professionals need to get the meaning of things back. Otherwise, if Republicans do take the Senate, their new majority will arrive not having won on the basis of something shared. They will not be able to claim any mandate for anything. That will encourage them to become self-driven freelancers in a very pleasant and distinguished freelancer’s club, which is sort of what the Senate is.

It’s good to win, but winning without a declared governing purpose is a ticket to nowhere.

Some feel a vague list of general stands might solve the problem and do the trick. They think it’s probably too late to do more than that. But there are 6½ weeks before the election, and plenty of voters would be asking for more information and open to changing their minds. In such circumstances, explicit vows are more likely to be taken seriously than airy sentiments.

Republicans need to say what they’re for. They need to make it new and true—not something defensive but something equal to the moment.

 

Politicians Like the Clintons, Obama, McCain, Boehner, Lawyers and Bankers killed the American Dream.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner is facing a primary opponent in his District in Ohio – a local high school teacher named J.D. Winteregg. He is challenging Boehner’s conservative credentials and ability to lead the Republican Party.

Winteregg has stepped up to do what most Republicans won’t – confront Boehner.

Here’s his argument:

Boehner voted to fund Obamacare.
• Boehner voted to raise the debt ceiling.
• Boehner voted to fund Planned Parenthood.
• Boehner refused to investigate Benghazi.
• Boehner refused to investigate the IRS scandal.
• Boehner takes money from liberal PAC’s.
• Then, last week, Boehner told donors in a private meeting that he’s “hell-bent” on passing amnesty!

boehner and obamaBoehner takes money from liberal PAC’s.+ hell-bent” on passing amnesty for illegals.

We believe the case Winteregg makes against Boehner’s re-election is rock-solid.

The truth is, Boehner has been in Washington D.C. for 24 years. He’s a part of the establishment, and he’s bargaining away our Constitutional rights and our free enterprise system. In every instance where Boehner concedes to the liberals, in the name of cooperation, we lose.

A new poll shows Boehner is in trouble! Voters are finally waking-up to his shady deals with the liberals.

The era of go-along, get-along leadership must end. Over and over, people like Boehner forget why they were elected in the first place and abandon the very reason they were sent to Washington!

In 2010 we showed the world that conservative principles can prevail. It is time to demonstrate that strength again.

Politicians Like the Clintons, Obama, McCain, Boehner,Pelosi Lawyers, and Bankers killed the American Dream.
We ate our own young. More money if you can shoot a hoop rather than cure a disease. Entitlement for the lazy and ignorant. Voters who know more about the Kardashian’s then the Constitution, Elected Officials like Obama who are great talkers but totally worthless Leaders .

Obamacare: A House of Lies

evil face 2

**By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS

If current trends continue, Obamacare will go down as one of the biggest mistakes in our government’s history.

Of the many Obamacare lies, the biggest fallacy was that “If you like your plan can keep your plan.”

Corporations from GE, IBM, to Time Warner have said they will stop providing insurance for hundreds of thousands of employees. Already, over 4.5 million Americans have received cancellation letters because of Obamacare and it’s estimated that one-third of all U.S. employers could stop offering health insurance to their workers.

Others who still receive healthcare through their employer might have thought they were safe from the law, but starting in 2014-2015-2016 they will feel Obamacare’s wrath, if they haven’t already.

(Many of the most onerous parts of Obamacare have recently been postponed until after the 2014 and 2016 elections. safeguarding the votes of progressive democrats. Who will go back to voting with Harry Reed and Nancy Pelosi as soon as their seats in government are assured.)

And don’t forget, healthcare was supposed to be “affordable for all.” But experts are now predicting premiums could rise up to 413% for some individuals.

Millions of other Americans are finding out that the many Obamacare taxes don’t just hurt those making over $250,000.

Worse, the federal subsidies provided to lower-income individuals under Obamacare won’t provide enough financial assistance for some consumers and***the burden of paying for these subsidies ultimately falls on middle class Americans, who will suffer most under the law. (We told you so)

The government program officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is quickly becoming a house of lies.

Even staunch liberal Michael Moore declared, “Obamacare is awful” in a New York Times op-ed.”For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke,” he wrote. “The cheapest plan available to a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year in Hartford, Conn., will cost $11,800 in annual premiums. And their deductible will be $12,600. If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year.” (Redistribution ?)

Americans are taking notice of the disastrous plan. Obamacare’s approval rating recently hit an all-time low of 35%.

Perhaps the most ominous sign about Obamacare’s future is that doctors are among the biggest Obamacare critics.

Besides the taxes and higher costs, doctors are worried that Obamacare will result in poor patient care.

A recent study by the prestigious Doctor Patient Medical Association revealed that an astounding 90% of doctors feel that the U.S. health care system is heading in the wrong direction.

In 2010, the American Medical Association lost over 215,000 members just because they didn’t agree with Obamacare. (Obama cares less. I believe progressive  immigration will bring to the U.S thousands of doctors from 3rd world countries like India, Pakistan even Iran)

The Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a shortage of 160,000 doctors by 2025, and applications for medical programs are already down 6%.

A poll from The Doctors Company revealed 60% of doctors said Obamacare will have a negative impact on patient care. And another poll done by Jackson & Coker in 2012 showed that 55% of doctors surveyed would repeal and replace Obamacare.

Add it all up and there’s going to be a detrimental shift in how you interact with your physicians.

Obamacare Tax Hikes Stoke Outrage                              Many of the Obamacare taxes are already in effect, others will hit after elections.. But they are already infuriating millions of Americans.

While even Obamacare detractors applaud the requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions and put a stop to lifetime caps on benefits, they say these laudable benefits(the cheese) don’t compensate for the bills high cost – especially in new taxes.(the trap comes later)

According to most experts, Obamacare will create a total of twenty new taxes or tax hikes on the American people.

In fact, the Obama administration has already given the IRS an extra $500 million to enforce the rules and regulations of Obamacare.

The new taxes don’t bode well for millions of middle-class Americans. Incomes for the rich have soared this decade but middle class workers have seen their wages stagnate and even drop since the 2008 Recession.

Many fear Obamacare with its high insurance costs and new taxes, could provide the middle class a fatal blow.
