"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."
It’s time for more of what liberals call “right wing extremism.” You know what that is – it’s what the rest of us refer to as “facts,” “truth,” and “reality.” This time it’s courtesy of our friends at townhall.com
– undoubtedly one of those “right wing extremist” online publications that ISN’T part of the Obama administration propaganda apparatchik. In an article posted this past Sunday, Wayne Allen Root chronicles what he calls “One Week Of Unimaginable Destruction By Obama.” I call it “Another Week In Obama’s America.” Here are the highlights of Mr. Root’s article:
*”This week the non-partisan CBO finally reported the truth – Obamacare is the perfect job-killing machine. Millions have already been downsized from full-time to part-time work and now we know from the CBO that an additional 2.3 million jobs will be eliminated. As I predicted from day one, this is exactly what Obamacare was intended to do- destroy the middle class and make us all dependent on government checks to survive.
Obama’s Kool-Aid drinking supporters are so far in the tank that when the CBO courageously pointed out that Obamacare makes it less likely millions of Americans will want to work, they called it “choice.” Obama’s propagandists painted it a wonderful development. But letting middle class wage earners and small businesses pay for all those who want to be freed from the need to work, so they can enjoy their free time and pursue their hobbies isn’t “choice.” It’s theft.”
*”Next Obama illegally re-wrote his own Obamacare law- again. Mimicking the traits of communist dictators and tin pot tyrants, Obama obviously believes he can change any law he wants, at any given hour, of any given day. One of the main chapters of my book was titled: “America the Banana Republic.” Just this week Charles Krauthammer said what’s happening under Obama “is the stuff you do in a banana republic.” Welcome to the club Charles. It’s nice to see D.C. establishment Republicans are finally seeing the light.
In America it’s a violation of the Constitution for the President to wake up on the wrong side of the bed and decide to make, arbitrarily change, or break laws. This is the behavior of Fidel Castro, or the late tyrant Hugo Chavez.”
*”But wait, it gets far worse. As part of the new illegal Obamacare directive to postpone the law for businesses with 50 to 99 employees, Obama put the IRS in direct control of critical U.S. business decisions. He demanded that businesses must “justify” hiring and firing decisions to the IRS to qualify for the exemption.
Plain and simple, putting government in charge of the decisions of a private business is the very foundation of communism. It is how communist economies like North Korea, Cuba, the old Soviet Union, and East Germany have always been run.”
*”Still, Obama wasn’t done. To show his total disdain for Congress and the American people he unilaterally loosened the rules for citizenship to allow foreigners with only a “minor” connection to terrorism to become citizens. Dennis Miller once said on Monday Night Football, “there is no such thing as a minor groin injury.” Well there is no such thing as a “minor” terrorist either.
Why is our President desperate to open the borders and let in “minor” terrorists? It’s not like we have a surplus of jobs. What is the pressing need in a country with 92 million unemployed working-age Americans? Has corporate America put out an emergency request for “minor” terrorist employees? Or is this how Obama creates instant Democratic voters?”
*”Much along the same lines, Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder announced this week how "unjust" it is to not allow felons to vote.
No Mr. Attorney General, the only thing “unjust” was the crimes these felons committed. What’s the emergency here? Is there a shortage of Democratic voters? Obama’s game plan is clearly to combine felons with radical Muslim terrorists in order to guarantee Democrat dominance for years to come.”
*”The disastrous effects of Obamacare are hitting home. Obama can spew all the fancy talk and propaganda he wants, but this time the people are experiencing the devastating effects of Obama's policies- health insurance policy cancellations, huge price increases, trusted doctors no longer in the network, prescriptions no longer covered, deductibles raised by thousands, and jobs being killed by the millions.
Obama faces a middle class revolt. A GOP landslide like 2010. His internal polls show a disaster headed his way. Knowing Democrats can no longer get elected, or re-elected, Obama has decided to go it alone.”

A perfect example of the above – and how the Obama administration plays fast and loose with ObamaCare enrollment numbers – was exposed in an article by J.D. Harrison in another of those “right wing extremist” publications – The Washington Post. In his article, Harrison points out that:
“Thousands of people have purchased health coverage through the District of Columbia’s new small-business insurance marketplace, but only a tiny fraction of them actually own or work for a small business.
The rest are members of or work for a single large organization — Congress.
Starting this year, new rules require federal lawmakers and their staffers to enroll in health-care plans through the small-business exchange on the city’s new insurance marketplace, known as DC Health Link. So far, 12,359 representatives and staff members, including those who work in district offices across the country and those working on Capitol Hill, have purchased plans, according to numbers obtained by The Washington Post from city health officials.
Normally, the small-business exchanges are reserved for companies with fewer than 50 employees (rising to 100 workers over the next two years). Some lawmakers have therefore questioned whether it’s fair to allow elected officials and their staffs to access the new online insurance marketplaces, which are expected to offer relatively low-cost plans, when private companies the size of Congress are excluded.
The congressional total represents 70 percent of the private insurance plans purchased so far in the District and 98 percent of the enrollment on the city’s small-business exchange.
(F)ewer than 300 actual small-business owners and employees have fully enrolled in coverage through DC Health Link, though a number of other small firms have selected plans but are still in the process of enrolling their employees.”
So to summarize: “Normally” (except in the Obama administration where they are DESPERATE for ObamaCare enrollment numbers), small business insurance marketplaces are designed to enroll employees of SMALL BUSINESSES. But in the case of the District of Columbia (the seat of our federal government), more than 12 THOUSAND employees of Congress comprise 98 percent of all the ObamaCare enrollees in the "small-business marketplace." (Less than THREE HUNDRED actual “small business” owners or employees have actually enrolled.) No doubt this will be trumpeted as a great “success” for ObamaCare enrollment by the administration – despite the fact that once again they have taken the “normal” and bastardized it to suit their own purposes and agenda.
Welcome to Obama’s America. There’s still hope for REAL change this November – and in 2016. If you don’t like what’s going on it’s up to you to step up and make your choices known in the voting booth.
