Skip to comments.Obama Suppressing News of Economic Disaster Ahead
Posted on 09/27/2012 10:57:50 PM PDT by Nachum
On May 7th, it was revealed that the Obama administration spent $8.35 billion on a demonstration project designed to postpone the vast majority of Obamacares Medicare Advantage cuts until after the election. On July 31st, it was revealed that the Labor Department warned defense contractors against notifying workers of impending layoffs before the election as well, despite the fact that it would require violating the law to do so. On September 21, it was revealed that a report on the Greek bailout will also be postponed until after the U.S. election. On September 13th, Fed Chief Ben Bernanke announced that he will be pursuing a third round of Quantitative Easing (QE3), once again under the auspices of stimulating the economy. The over-arching theme here is clear: anything that constitutes an inconvenient reality for this president, especially with respect to economics, will be delayed until after the election.
Thus, the president can continue to campaign on the heartless cuts a Romney administration will administer to healthcare in general, and seniors healthcare in particular, even as those same seniors remain oblivious to the reality that $7.4 billion will be cut from the Medicare Advantage program in 2013. As a result, enrollees will lose an average of $515 in benefits. Americans remain equally oblivious to the reality that family health insurance premiums have gone up by an average $2,730, despite a 2008 promise Obama made to lower premiums by $2500 by the end of his first term.

The fact that this guy is telling lies that he KNOWS he will be caught telling shows he intends to finish the nation’s destruction if he’s re-elected.
On January 21, 2013, if Romney wins, it will be open season for negative news in the media giving the impression that Romney caused it all. Watch, just watch.
That’s an excellent point. America has a VERY SHORT MEMORY though, with help from the 0bamamedia burying recent history like 9/11 in NYC.
Clever tactic. With an illusion of stability, there’s better chance for re-election. And in case of loss, everything topples and it’s the other guy’s mess to clean up. Then just look forward four years to where you can pin the blame on them and retake the presidency.
If you recall , the CREDIT DOWNGRADE occurred coincidental to the Benghazi attack.
No wonder Zero , Hilldebeast , and Rice from the UN were spouting about ‘the movie’ , and making appologies and this story was hyped for over 10 days by the media talking-heads.
The corrupt media completely missed the fact that the credit downgrade occurred ; they were too busy repeating the talking points from the White Hut/media matters about “the movie” .
Team Romney needs to pay attention to all these interviews--Obama doesn't seem good with details at all. He still seems to be going on what he was fed for his 2008 run, no details just broad talking points. Obama chews his words a bunch, too. In debates Romney would sometimes talk really fast, that will ruffle Obama.

That ain’t the news that the media wants to report !
To them , it was all about ‘ the movie’
And then the press wonders why people don’t read newspapers , or watch the network news ..
(Big Hint !) They don’t trust them !!
.. and the media wonders why ? ...(gag ! )
Of particular note was the link within the article to the “guidelines” issued by 0bama’s “Labor” Department under Secretary Solis. Weasel wording at its finest. All to cover his backside until after the election.
I think the media is suppressing that fact, but I guess the media and Obamugabe are one and the same.
If he wins, Romney will be “inheriting” a trashed house. Hopefully he’ll see that the quickest road to recovery is to drop the capital gains tax further, make permanent the Bush tax cuts, eliminate every regulation on every part of the economy instituted during the Marxist years, and then get the f—k out of the way. The unemployment rate will drop like a rock. After these steps are taken he should in earnest reform Medicare and repeal Obamacare. How’s that for a first term?
Well Romney does Have a Mouth Doesnt he?
How’s that for a first WEEK?
I pray RR win and we get at least to 50-50 in the senate.
Fireworks are pending on my street. PLEASE SAVE AMERICA!
Oh yeah. As soon as the oath is administered, the media will discover gas costs $4, real unemployment is ~18%, food prices are high, we have drones and we're fighting an unjust war in Afghanistan.
Anything Romney wants to do requiring legislation will have to get by Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. Even if the Republicans capture the Senate , Reid will use the filibuster to thwart the Romney legislative agenda.
Reid and Pelosi will demonstrate in Romney’s first year what a united minority in Congress can do to thwart a President. They will be doing what Boehner and McConnell should have been doing the past two years. Plus the mainstream media will cheer them on.
Don’t expect a defeated Obama to pull a George W. Bush disappearing act either. He’ll be on the news every night criticizing his successor. Hopefully Mr. Nice Guy Romney is ready for the firestorm of relentless opposition and criticism he will face from the minute he swears the oath. He also needs to have a plan in place to give Boehner and McConnell backbones.
Medicare advantage could prove fatal to Obama. He actually destroys it, he will not survive very long
