Skip to comments.Sarah Palin is Right: Obamacare Death Panel Real; Disguised as the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Comm
Posted on 04/02/2014 6:26:20 AM PDT by Kaslin
Turns out Sarah Palin was right.
Obamacare does have Death Panels, and they are currently disguised as the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee.
In this week when Obamacare finally turns one day old, the political problems that our economic recovery face have never been on better display.
While the stock market makes new highs, even the Fed is acknowledging that this recovery is different. And because its different, Wall Street is winning and Main Street is losing.
Although we work through financial markets, our goal is to help Main Street, not Wall Street, said the Peoples Commissar of Banking Janet Yellen, chair of the largest bank in the history of the world, wholly owned by Congress and the member banks.
Viva la Humans!
Because if the goal is to help Main Street, the Fed has been a pretty poor instrument. And thats how it should be.
Even economists agree that there is a limited amount any central bank can do to affect the economy with monetary policy.
That too is as it should be.
Imagine a world where the Federal Reserve not only engineered monetary policy, but was social policy was well.
Oh thats right, you dont have to. They do that already.
And thats largely why you see a tale of two economies.
The Fed is trying to aid and abet the government in its insatiable appetite for more cash.
Thats why manufacturing drove a rebound in the economy in March. Or, on the other hand, maybe it didnt.
Two widely watched indicators of strength in the economy, the ISM survey of manufacturers and a similar index put out by Markit showed varying degrees confidence that the economy is expanding.
Fourteen of the 18 industries tracked by the ISM said their companies posted growth in March, writes MarketWatch, and almost every respondent said either their business or the economy is getting better.
Yet MarketWatch also reports that the widely watched private estimate from Markit showed growth in manufacturing stagnant or slowing.
New orders dipped to 58.1 from 59.6 and employment fell to 53.9 from 54.1 in February, reports the online finance site. The slight dropoff in the March PMI comes after the Markit index rose in February to the highest level in almost four years, helped by manufacturers catching up after winter-related softness in January.
Not coincidentally, the market is also of two minds regarding the comments from Yellen, who yesterday said that the Feds commitment to stimulus efforts remains unabated.
This extraordinary commitment is still needed and will be for some time, and I believe that view is widely shared by my fellow policy makers, Yellen said Monday. The scars from the Great Recession remain, and reaching our goals will take time.
Some see her comments as proof that the economy is on the mend, because the Fed remains committed to winding down quantitative easing and others see it as meaning the Fed wont raise interest rate any time soon because the economy is too weak.
And both sides are right.
Indisputably things are great on Wall Street.
Indisputably things are terrible on Main Street, as even Yellen acknowledged:
One form of evidence for slack is found in other labor market data, beyond the unemployment rate or payrolls, some of which I have touched on already. For example, the seven million people who are working part time but would like a full-time job. This number is much larger than we would expect at 6.7% unemployment, based on past experience, and the existence of such a large pool of "partly unemployed" workers is a sign that labor conditions are worse than indicated by the unemployment rate.
With a record amount of money on Wall Street via the Fed, jobs can only come from one place.
Its not the Federal Reserve Bank and its not Wall Street.
Its Washington, DC thats mucking up the works. And frankly the blame rests squarely with Democrats: Obamacare, Keystone, Wars on Wages, etc.
Obamacare alone is the single most labor-force disfiguring social program ever foisted on us by the Democrats.
And theyve all done their part.
Its time the Death Panels did theirs.
She is the carnery in the mine shaft.
Sarah Palin right about Death Panels , Ukraine, drilling for oil, etc. etc. and the news media smeared her as being dumb
If Obama was right one third as much as Palin, he would be elected President for life. Hell, one fifth.
What this article disregards is the (massive) inbalance in trade, which now has moved America to number two behind China.
America last year bought 440 billion dollars from China.
China meanwhile, only bought 128 billion from America.
This massive trade inbalance is also accompanied by a corresponding inbalance in the way, the two countries allow investment.
China does not allow full foreign investment. It is all about Chinese investment.
So we are currently selling the future to China, basically.
America is not long on the top, the way things are heading.
America we need to demand China handle investments exactly the way America does.
This is not simply an exercise. America is already number two in exports now, behind China.
America now runs a MASSIVE trade inbalance with China.
Both parties seem to be completely sold out.
Sarah's been right about most everything she's discussed or debated. And, she's proved the LSM wrong....every time.
We know he's lying but it's up to you to take the lead. None of our leaders will.
As far as Armageddon, we're not there. Yet!
4 times? No .practically everything is made in China. The USA makes nothing now that Obama chased away all companies to China.that is why they have all the money.
well the Chinese/China are your landlords now:
the Chinese are on a real estate buying spree all over America. In fact, in some cases large chunks of land are actually being given to them. Yes, you read that correctly. China is on the way to becoming the dominant land owner in the entire country of the USA, and that is starting to alarm a lot of people.
Well actually I believe a lot of the American imports to China may be farm goods.
There are however still some American goods.
Airplanes for example.
But 440 / 128 is a pretty miserable trade situation, you have got to admit.
I don’t know if the USA even makes planes really . if you look at all the computer chips and plastic seats etc. on that plane you will see they are made in China.
I guarantee you practically everything (well maybe 99%) is made in China imo
Will never happen as long as big business is too hard core capitalist. Don’t get me wrong I am a dire hard free-enterprise man, but this whole globalized market is crap and importing cheap stuff has done more to undermine this country as anything else.
Well all I can say is, the GOP needs to change its tune and focus full-bore on American workers.
There will be a push-back to sending jobs overseas. I believe it has already started, and it will be HUGE.
The GOP needs to get off it’s a**, turn around, start adopting pro-American business policies right now, and start to advocate for American workers.
American workers vote.
“I can see Russia from Poland.”
She sure was right in everything
Her being right was why they had to smear her.
Great Britain, in the 1840's, handled Chinese mercantilism very deftly, and ruined the dynasty at the same time.
They started selling opium into the Chinese economy and fought down (the Opium Wars) Chinese imperial efforts to stop it. Result: Ruined, impoverished China, wealthy Great Britain.
I always did love that red zip jacket when I think of Sarah, I think of her dressed like this.
“Sarah Palin needs to run to defeat the socialist Hillary clinton in the 2016 presidential race”
It would be hilarious to see Sarah debate Hillary.
Just having the two on stage together would be such a wonderful contrast.
