    Barack Obama is beginning to run short on supporters, and that is no real surprise given the deep, dark, dirty secrets that have come to light over the past few months. The president has garnered a reputation for ignoring the law and pushing through his own personal agenda with or without the support of Congress. He has consistently lied about the details surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attack, has possible links to the IRS targeting scandal, had prior knowledge of the VA waiting lists, yet did nothing, and has now violated U.S. policy by negotiating with terrorists. These lawless actions, among...
  • People with health insurance sour on ObamaCare, poll finds

    People with health insurance are unhappy with the rollout of ObamaCare, and many of them blame the law for changes in their policies, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. The online survey of 1,367 adults found political challenges for President Obama and congressional Democrats among the population they said would largely be unaffected by the new healthcare law – the 85 percent of people who already have health insurance. Nearly half of those who already had coverage through their employer or the private market said their policies would be changing in 2014; 69 percent said they would be paying...

    RedState ^ | December 13, 2013 | briansikma (
    The mainstream media fact-checking outfit PolitiFact may have just performed the “flip-flop” of the year. The group, which has outlets in several states, named as “Lie of the Year” President Barack Obama’s now infamous claim that under ObamaCare if you like your current health insurance, you can keep it. The presidential claim has been made a lie by the reality of thousands of Americans receiving health insurance cancellations due to new ObamaCare regulations. What makes PolitiFact’s rating astonishing is that in October of 2008 the group rated the exact same statement by then-candidate Barack Obama as “True.” Obama made the...
  • Majority want health law repealed or scaled back

    A majority of people in the United States say they want ObamaCare to be scaled back or repealed altogether. According to a Gallup poll released Friday, 20 percent support a scale-back of the law, while 32 percent back efforts to repeal it. That's just a little more than in mid-October, when 50 percent told Gallup the law should be scaled-back or repealed. The relatively small change could be viewed as good news at the White House given the difficult last six weeks for the law. A faulty website rolled out on Oct. 1 made enrolling in the exchanges problematic, but...

    The White House, for at least the fifth time this year, is seeking to pivot to the economy, this time in a bid to change the subject from the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. It’s a common play for the White House, which frequently seeks to refocus attention on its jobs and infrastructure agenda when facing political crises. The move is so familiar that NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd has dubbed it the “déjà pivot.” The Hill counted at least five times the White House has sought to pivot to the economy this year by reviewing news accounts. Republicans, citing...

    Newly released emails between top Obama administration tech officials are shedding more light on the severity of the concerns that were raised before the disastrous rollout of the ObamaCare website, with one official saying “the results are not good” just days before the Oct. 1 launch. The emails from Sept. 26-30, which were discovered by the House Energy and Commerce Committee as part of its investigation into the troubled Healthcare.gov, highlight troubling results as Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) officials ran tests on the site. In a Sept. 26 email to top CMS officials including HealthCare.gov project manager...

    Older congressional staff say their out-of-pocket healthcare costs will rise three or four times after they enter the ObamaCare insurance exchanges. The economic shock has led Democratic chiefs of staff to call for changing the rules so that their staffers won’t take the economic hit. The chiefs of staff have expressed support for a change that would allow congressional offices to re-classify their workers as non-official staff so that they can avoid the higher costs. “Simply unaffordable,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), wrote in an email to fellow Democratic chiefs of staff on Thursday afternoon....

    Experts’ warnings of Obamacare website’s complete lack of security apparently have been justified. The website gave at least 3 unknown individuals access to a woman’s Social Security number, address, and other data that could be used for identity theft. Customer service operators at Healthcare.gov’s 1-800 number told Lisa Martinson about the unauthorized access when she called in to change her password. When Martinson asked for her information to be removed from the site she was told it would take 5 days.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says Democrats’ bills to fix ObamaCare are designed to “cover their political rear-ends.” In an interview on CNN’s “New Day,” Cruz said no one is defending the law anymore. “All of the bills proposed by the Democrats, they’re designed to be political Band-Aids. Their effort is to cover their political rear-ends, not to fix the problem,” he said. Several Democrats facing tough reelection campaigns in 2014 — including Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska) — have proposed bills to fix President Obama's signature legislation, focusing on a way to let people keep their healthcare...

    Between 30 and 40 percent of the IT system for the federal health insurance marketplace must still be built, a top official at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said Monday. Henry Chao, the agency’s deputy chief information officer, said that a large portion of the behind-the-scenes work has yet to be finished. “I think it’s just an approximation, we’re probably sitting somewhere between 60 or 70 percent [completed],” he told the House Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee. Chao’s comments, which came during a hearing on data security of the federal website, come less than two weeks before the...

    President Obama told supporters Monday night that he needed their help battling against “a lot of misinformation” spread by political opponents about his signature healthcare legislation. Speaking on a virtual conference call hosted by Organizing for Action — the political group born from his reelection campaign — the president admitted that problems with the ObamaCare website had put a damper on early enrollment efforts. “The good news is it’s getting better every single week,” Obama said. “I am confident that by the end of this month it is going to be functioning for the vast majority of folks.” The president...

    The Obama administration has repeatedly said that the health-insurance-plan cancellations receiving so much attention in the news in recent days will affect only the 5 percent of Americans who purchase insurance on the individual market. The Department of Justice, however, in a brief filed in federal court last month, conceded that the number may be much higher. According to the administration’s numbers, nearly 80 million additional Americans, “a majority” of those on employer-sponsored health plans, may also be out of luck. “It is projected that more group health plans will transition to the requirements under the regulations as time goes...

    President Obama has reached a historic inflection point that poses great peril to his presidency. He does not have a public relations problem or a political problem. He has a governing problem and a credibility problem. If he addresses these effectively, which will require changing the management paradigm of his presidency, the public relations and political problems will solve themselves, and his presidency will be rejuvenated. Let's set aside the last 50 and next 50 news cycles. The core problem plaguing the Obama presidency is that he governs through a tightly controlled and highly centralized White House staff that is...

    A disturbing trend among American conservatives is the increasing sense of optimism about President Obama's slow fade in mainstream perceptions, and its ramifications for the future of American leftism. Does Obama's decline entail the undoing of the movement he represents? Progressivism's history reveals another option, which is that the movement will, in the name of saving itself, reject Obama.Progressives are rigid in their ideology, to be sure, but this rigidity does not extend to their support for leaders. For it follows from the inhumane core of progressivism itself that all men--even "historic" ones--are expendable in the name of the cause,...

    Reilly, who generally supports the law, said he'd always assumed skimpy plans wouldn't make the cut. But he didn't think major medical plans like his would go away, too. "That was a complete bombshell to me," he said. Florida's largest health insurer will give 300,000 customers who received cancellation notices the option to renew their existing plans for one more year. Florida Blue's decision comes in the wake of President Barack Obama's reversal on Thursday. Facing political pressure over the cancellations, Obama told insurers they could revive the plans for another year, even though they don't meet the requirements of...

Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer said the president repeatedly asked about the healthcare.gov website, a key piece of his 2010 healthcare overhaul legislation, and was told it would meet his expectations. Along with the president, Pfeiffer hyped the website in the weeks before the troubled launch, promising it would “be a consumer experience unmatched by anything in government, but also...
