Obamacare Premiums 47% Higher But Deductibles 27% Lower Than Grandfathered Health Plans; Obamacare Lies
“That difference in monthly premiums of $190 vs. $279 will entice many to keep their existing plan, assuming it is still offered. However, that setup won’t last very long because companies cannot raise premiums on grandfathered plans.
Simply put, Obama lied when he said “you can keep your existing plan”, knowing full well the law was purposely written to make sure that would not happen over time.
Eventually you will be stuck with a new Obamacare plan and higher premiums whether you like your existing plan or not.”
Obama’s Morehouse Speech Leaves Guests Out in Cold Guests Not Allowed to Leave, No Umbrellas Allowed in Rain Shower
“Fox 5 Atlanta reports on President Obama’s commencement speech at Morehouse College on Sunday which left attendees in the rain for several hours.
For security purposes, attendees were not allowed to bring in umbrellas on the cold, rainy day for the President’s address outdoors.
Many decided to leave early and skip the President’s speech, while others were forced to sit in the bad weather for hours.”
“We are being grateful to hear the President give the address, but we’d rather not get sick.”
“Everybody has the nice clothes and nice shoes, so several wanted to leave after it started storming. You know, you feel icky. Unfortunately we weren’t able to leave.”

“The usually-cocksure Jay Carney has rarely appeared so uncomfortable.
“What I can tell you is that this president believes strongly in the First Amendment and is a strong defender of the First Amendment,” Carney insisted to a packed house of angry reporters last Tuesday afternoon.
The White House had just been freshly stung by news that the Department of Justice had secretly raided the phone records of up to 100 Associated Press reporters, looking to identify the news organization’s private sources.”

“According to the White House Visitors Log, provided here in searchable form by U.S. News and World Report, the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm that Wednesday noon time of March 31st.
The White House lists the IRS union leader’s visit this way:”
Kelley, Colleen Potus 03/31/2010 12:30
“In White House language, “POTUS” stands for “President of the United States.”
The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way:”
April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.
“Does Barack Obama have any idea what is going on in the government that he is supposedly running? Scandals are erupting all around him, and he supposedly was not aware that any wrongdoing had taken place in any of those instances. It is almost as if every major government agency has gone rogue and Obama has no idea what the heck they are doing. According to Obama, he often doesn’t learn what those under his authority are up to until he sits down and turns on the news. Should we believe him when he claims ignorance over and over again, or is Obama just trying to protect himself? Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, the revelations that have come out in recent days about the IRS, the seizure of AP phone records and Benghazi should be very alarming to you. Taken together, these scandals paint a picture of a federal government that has become drunk with power, and no matter where you may fall on the political spectrum that is something that nobody should want.”
‘Conservative groups seeking information from the Environmental Protection Agency have been routinely hindered by fees normally waived for media and watchdog groups, while fees for more than 90 percent of requests from green groups were waived, according to requests reviewed by the Conservative Enterprise Institute.
CEI reviewed Freedom of Information Act requests sent between January 2012 and this spring from several environmental groups friendly to the EPA’s mission, and several conservative groups, to see how equally the agency applies its fee waiver policy for media and watchdog groups. Government agencies are supposed to waive fees for groups disseminating information for public benefit.”
Obama’s claim he called Benghazi an ‘act of terrorism’
‘Once again, it appears that we must parse a few presidential words. We went through this question at length during the 2012 election, but perhaps a refresher course is in order.
Notably, during a debate with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, President Obama said that he immediately told the American people that the killing of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya “was an act of terror.” But now he says he called it “an act of terrorism.”
Some readers may object to this continuing focus on words, but presidential aides spend a lot of time on words. Words have consequences. Is there a difference between “act of terror” and “act of terrorism”?”

“President Obama resorted to his old “fever” analogy to complain to Democratic Party donors about ongoing Republican “hyper-partisanship.” He also admitted to failing to deliver the post-partisan era promised in 2008.
“What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008,” Obama said today, according to the pool report. “My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet. But I am persistent. And I am staying at it. And I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them.”
The president — whose administration has spent the last four days under fire for failing to send aid to Americans under attack in Benghazi; hiding what it knew about terrorists’ involvement in the attack for two weeks; employing IRS staff who targeted Tea Party groups for special audits; and having the Justice Department pull phone records of Associated Press reporters — then said that the Republican opposition is producing cynicism about government.”
