  • Health Premiums Up $3,065; Obama Vowed $2,500 Cut (Blast to the past. Obama Lied, Health Care Died!)

    During his first run for president, Barack Obama made one very specific promise to voters: He would cut health insurance premiums for families by $2,500, and do so in his first term. But it turns out that family premiums have increased by more than $3,000 since Obama's vow, according to the latest annual Kaiser Family Foundation employee health benefits survey. Premiums for employer-provided family coverage rose $3,065 — 24% — from 2008 to 2012, the Kaiser survey found. Even if you start counting in 2009, premiums have climbed $2,370. What's more, premiums climbed faster in Obama's four years than they...
  • Harkin: Tea Party 'every bit' as dangerous to nation as the Civil War

    Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) on Friday said that the Tea Party movement is just as dangerous for America as the Civil War. “A small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology about how our country should run and what we should do cannot get their way in a normal discourse and votes,” Harkin said. “Since they can’t get their way they’re going to create this confusion and discourse and hope the public is so mixed up in who to blame for this that perhaps they’ll blame both sides.” “That is the path they see for taking...

    President Obama: "And part of what I think the resistance that we've seen ramp up particularly over the last couple of months is all about is the opponents of health care reform know they're going to sign up. In fact, one of the major opponents, when asked, well, why is it that you'd potentially shut down the government at this point just to block Obamacare, he basically fessed up. He said, well, once consumers get hooked on having health insurance and subsidies, then they won't want to give it up. (Laughter.) I mean, that's — you can look at the...

    While a prime opponent of Obamacare was trying to kill the law in the Senate, President Obama promoted the health care law Tuesday with former President Bill Clinton and warned of Republicans spreading “misinformation.” “There’s been billions of dollars spent making people scared and worried about this stuff,” Mr. Obama said at a forum at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City. “Those [who] have opposed the idea of universal health care in the first place and have fought this thing tooth and nail have been trying to scare and discourage people from getting a good deal.” He urged...

    President Barack Obama on Tuesday assured the United Nations that the world is now a much safer place than it was five years ago. The United States government has “begun to review the way that we gather intelligence so that we properly balance the legitimate security concerns of our citizens and allies with the privacy concerns that all people share,” the president said. “As a result of this work and cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago,” Obama added. The president later added that “even a glance at today’s headlines indicates...

    President Barack Obama accused opponents of gun control of fighting to allow “dangerous people” to own guns in a speech on Saturday to activists at Congressional Black Caucus, promising he would revive his failed gun control efforts following recent urban shootings in Chicago and Washington D.C.’s Navy Yard. “We can’t rest until all of our children can go to school or walk down the street free from the fear that they will be struck down by a stray bullet,” he said, citing recent shooting in Chicago’s African-American districts. The promise of gun control came with the incendiary suggestion that gun-rights...

    Defunding Obamacare is just a ruse to shut down the government, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.“Republicans put legislation on the floor that was intended to shut down government,” Pelosi told CNN host Candy Crowley on Sunday. “For them, that’s a victory because [of] their anti-government ideologues who dominate the Republican party.”Crowley corrected Pelosi by saying the Republicans wanted to defund Obamacare, but Pelosi stood her ground.“No, they want to shut down government,” Pelosi said. “The effect of putting [Obamacare] on the bill is to shut down government. They know that. They know it has no prospect of...

    Successful recall elections Tuesday of two Democratic state senators in Colorado were because of “voter suppression, pure and simple,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday. Wasserman Schultz blamed lawsuits filed by opponents of gun control to prevent voters from mailing in ballots, the late announcement of polling locations, and “efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win.” “The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing...

    Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a grassroots organization of more than 100,000 members, issued the following statement regarding the recall election results in Colorado: “The gun lobby may have won this local battle, but they will not win the national war. The National Rifle Association purposely called this recall election in Colorado – just a year before the regular election cycle – to ensure voting obstacles and low voter turnout. This reckless desire to remove legislators from office in an off-election year cost Coloradans more than $500,000 – an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars. From the outset,...

    ...Obama on Thursday will tout the benefits that Americans with existing health insurance will receive under his signature healthcare law, as his administration ramps up its promotional campaign to get people to sign up for coverage this fall. The White House speech will tout the $100 average rebates per family that 8.5 million privately insured Americans, or their employers, will receive from their insurers this summer under the reform law's provision that insurers can't pocket more than 15% to 20% of premiums for profit and administrative costs, according to a senior administration official. The administration credits the policy with reducing...

"And why is that? Why is that? I have talked to so many members both in the House and the Senate, and you know what? You ready? You ready for what it comes down to? It is not about how many federal dollars we can receive, it is not about that. You ready? It is about...

    The New York Times ^ | May 13, 2013 | Professor Stanley Fish
    The more militant members of the N.R.A. and most of its leaders may be un-American. By “militant” I don’t mean those who wish to protect recreational shooting and hunting; nor do I mean those who, like Justice Antonin Scalia, believe that there is a constitutional right to defend one’s home and family with firearms. These are respectable positions (although I am deeply unpersuaded by the second). I mean those who read the Second Amendment as proclaiming the right of citizens to resist the tyranny of their own government, that is, of the government that issued and ratified the Constitution in...

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied that President Obama’s administration bears any comparison to that of Richard Nixon, who resigned in the face of impeachment. “The people who make those kinds of comparisons need to check their history,” Carney told reporters when asked about Nixon comparisons. “It is a reflection of the sort of rapid politicization of everything that you have that kind of commentary.” Time’s Joe Klein wrote that the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups for inappropriate scrutiny put Obama “on the same page as Richard Nixon” — perhaps because the Nixon articles of impeachment included the charge...

    In a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said that Republicans in Congress should look into a mirror when asking why the attack on an American consulate in Benghazi was as deadly as it was. She said that House Republicans who voted to cut security funding for overseas embassies are directly responsible for the lack of security personnel at that outpost. Boxer’s claim is contradicted by testimony delivered before a Congressional Oversight Committee hearing last week.

    Civil rights icon Julian Bond defended the IRS for targeting tea party groups, on Tuesday, labeling them “the Taliban wing of American politics.” “I think it’s entirely legitimate to look at the tea party,” Bond said on MSNBC. “Here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who’ve tried as best they can to harm President Obama in every way they can.” Bond was chairman of the NAACP in 2004, when the IRS opened an investigation into their nonprofit status following the group’s convention, where Bond delivered a speech criticizing President George W. Bush, and...

    The White House on Monday distanced President Obama from the Department of Justice’s seizure of Associated Press telephone records. “Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the AP,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. Carney said the White House had no involvement in the Justice effort. “We are not involved in decisions made in connection with criminal investigations, as those matters are handled independently by the Justice Department,” he said. The Justice Department said in a letter to the AP on Friday that...

    HARRY REID: We have a situation where this country has been driven by the Tea Party for the last number of years. When I was in school, I studied government and I learned about the anarchists. Now, they were different than the Tea Party because they were violent. But they were anarchists because they did not believe in government in any level and they acknowledged it. The Tea Party kind of hides that.
