“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama

“millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”…NBC News October 29, 2013

“Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”… Joseph Goebbels

One of my friends, who also has German ancestry, and I got into a heated debate several months ago. He has not stayed on top of the news and researched Obama and Obamacare. He told me we should wait and see and give Obamacare a chance. Like so much of what has happened since 2008 this reminded me once again of Nazi Germany.

How many people in pre war Nazi Germany said Give Hitler a chance?

Wait and see.

I thought about this for several days and when I next saw him I said:

Abwarten und sehen.

Wait and see in German.

I made my point.

From Byron York and The Washington Examiner November 25, 2013.

“Why voters are finished believing Obama’s health care promises”

“In April, Real Clear Politics’ average of polls showed that 47 percent of Americans opposed Obamacare, while 41 percent supported it — a 6-percentage-point edge for opponents of the president’s health care law, which at the time was still months away from implementation.

The latest average of polls, less than two months into the law’s rollout, shows 57 percent opposing Obamacare, with 38 percent supporting — an enormous 19-point gap between opponents and supporters.

The two numbers explain why Republicans made little progress when they tried to warn Americans about Obamacare. For years, GOP warnings about Obamacare were about something that had not yet arrived. People had not experienced Obamacare, did not have friends who had experienced it and didn’t fully understand what it was. Many tuned out the Republican alarms.

Now that has changed. Millions of Americans are unhappy with what they have experienced under Obamacare — canceled policies, higher premiums and sky-high deductibles. They are also much more likely to believe predictions of future problems. They’ve seen what has already happened and now know it can get worse.

So how can it get worse? So far, Obamacare has upended the individual market for health insurance, which covers about 10 million people. The next step, according to the respected health care analyst Robert Laszewski, will likely come in the small-employer market, meaning businesses with anywhere between two and 50 employees. That covers about 45 million people.

“Obamacare is impacting the small-group insurance market in many of the same ways as the individual health insurance market,” Laszewski writes. Under Obamacare, the small employers who offer their workers health coverage will be “required to comply with the same essential benefit mandates, age rating changes, and pre-existing condition reforms the individual market faces. That means essentially all small group policies cannot continue as they are — they have to be discontinued.””

“In the three and a half years between March 23, 2010, the day Obamacare was signed into law, and Oct. 1, 2013, the day its implementation got under way, millions of voters, no matter what doubts they might have had, thought it best to give Obamacare a chance to work. That’s why they didn’t respond to the GOP’s dire warnings. But now, they’ve seen what Obamacare can mean in their lives. And they won’t be buying any more promises.”

  2. “Obama Presses Republicans to Work With Him on Economy”

    “President Barack Obama accused Republicans in Congress of focusing on trying to damage him politically at the expense of programs and legislation that would help the U.S. economy.”

    Obama is the Blamer in Chief. Nothing is ever his fault. It’s Bush’s fault. It’s Congress’ fault. It’s the Republicans’ fault. It’s the Tea Party’s fault. It’s a anti-muslim filmmaker’s fault. It’s the health insurance companies’ fault. It’s the fault of lone IRS employees in Ohio. It’s never Obama’s fault.

    “So shameless it would make a North Korean propagandist blush.”

  7. Observer,
    The video has been removed by user already. But I feel sick just reading some of the passages from the book as described at other websites. I have Obama barf bags for anyone who wants some.

  8. “No CapEx Recovery: Durable Goods Disappoint As Capital Goods Orders And Shipments Decline”

    “While the Census Bureau disclosed that headline Durable Goods declined in October by 2.0% (and much more on an unadjusted basis), this was in line with expectations, and was driven by an unexpected -15.9% collapse in new aircraft orders, driven by Boeing which had a 60% drop in orders, down from 127 to only 79 for the month. However, the big surprise was in the ex-transport durable goods number, which declined by -0.1%, crushing expectations of a 0.5% increase and down from last month’s revised +0.2%. In other words, the modest rebound in orders in late summer now appears to have been purely a function of channel stuffing, which now has to work its way through the system, as manufacturing with unfilled orders dropped by a whopping -3.1%.”

    Want to help the US Economy Obama?


    At first I laughed. On further deep thinking, I asked if it would really help? Joe Biden as POTUS, it's even worse. You can't fix the economy with the democrats running things.


  11. Pete……
    Hell I ain’t sure that even RINOS can fix it either. We need to hire a dirt farmer to be POTUS, at least he would know UP from DOWN.

  12. Gets more depraved every day:


    The Obamacare event took place at the University of Central Arkansas last weekend. It was hosted by a group called the Living Affected Corporation, which apparently has received a grant from the federal government to educate the public about Obamacare.

    This regime gives new meaning to “classless society”.

  13. Heard this ‘breaking news’ on Tuesday on a Boston talk radio station with Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times.

    If this is true, what barky and Lurch Kerry are telling the American people about this ‘deal’ is a lie; the Iranian Foreign Ministry is saying that what we are being told is NOT the deal they signed.

    So far, we have:

    Iran Nuke Deal: Lie
    Benghazi: Lie
    Seal Team 6: Lie
    Fast and Furious: Lie
    The IRS Scandal: Lie
    ObamaCare: Lie
    The NSA: Lie
    Having a Legitimate POTUS: Lie

    Have we had enough lies from this regime yet?

    Our “snot nosed over educated wordsmiths” think Soetoro is GOD. For some unknown reason the SENIOR crowd refuses to get off their ARSES,and correct their snot nosed child prodigies. Until people stand up unite,and move Eastward at high speed, and about 1,000,000 strong nothing will change…only get WORSE. Obviously we live amongst some real STUPID ARSES.

  15. Over at CNS News I just read that the Obama Administration is closing our embassy to the Vatican–Vatican City. They are giving security concerns and “Benghazi” as the reason, as well as “saving money.” What a lie! But I see here a veiled threat to Rome. I personally believe Obama is a Shiite and pro-Iranian. We have state of the art security in Rome, so in this move is a hint of a threat to the Vatican, as well as the desire to undercut historical Christianity–to lower the prestige of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church has opposed critical elements of his Obamacare socialism, even taking the Administration to court. This cannot be tolerated!

  16. Such a crazy world! I’m sitting here thinking, Israel now experiences an existential threat due to the new deal with Iran, yet 76% of my fellow Jews voted for Obama both times. And now Catholic Rome, the church’s largest college in the US, Notre Dam, giving the Muslim Shiite an honorary Doctorate of Laws in spite of his pro-abortion stance, and dragging away 80+ year old priests that were protesting–and 56% of Catholics voted for Obama. Better percentage than the Jews, but still really bad. And now our Vatican embassy is being closed.

  17. Dean M.
    Once again, the denial of Nazi Germany.
    We’re good Germans, they won’t bother us.

  18. Pete.
    First Obama, then Biden.

  19. Dean M……..
    I too believe thatthe closing of the Vatican embassy is in reality a slap at the Catholic church, yet the snotnosed overeducated wordsmiths will repeat everything from the WACKEY HOUSE. They show their stupidity at every turn.

  20. Dean M
    I would like to pass along to you another viewpoint if you will. First of all there are pathetically few people in the entirety of the US who believe that the situation we are in is FAR FAR worse than anybody has yet recognised. Our monetary system is by design “ATTHE BRINK”. It can be collapsed at will, or when the SLIMEY progressives see fit. We all KNOW that Kerry is on the side of the Iranians, as is Soetoro,and his Iranian BITCH advisor. The original GANG OF 14 who HIJACKED the Democratic party are NOT really representatives of the Democratic party…in reality they are a group of people whose twisted mindset makes them pursue the Marxist Socialist entity. Two of the members of the gang of 14 have died,and I pray that their souls are bbburning in HELL..There are still a lot of them left.Among them is Charles Schummer,Mr.Durbin,Mr Leahy Msssssss Pelosi and others.. They are NO LONGER DEmocrats as such they are the SOCIALIST SLIME WHO are trying to destroy the US.

  21. When Ike Eisenhower was shown a Nazi Death camp the first thing he done was go to a nearby town and at gunpoint escorted all of the residents to the death camp to bury the stacks of rotting corpses. They whined ,and cried that they had NO IDEA that such carnage was being perpetrated by Mr.Hitler who they all ADMIRED. So Ike saw to it that they were the CLEANUP CREW for Hitler, who they thought was God. There was over 10,000 rotting corpses which needed burial. The citizens of that city got the honor bestowed upon them.

  22. Dean M………
    I personally believe that soon PUSH is going to become SHOVE, and what happens thereafter will probablyNEVER be forgotten by anyone. Sadly everybody HAS FORGOTTEN why the Revolutionary war was fought. Of course if you are not taught US History in school it is doubtful that anybody will even realise that there was a revolutionary war to begin with.

  23. bye bye Have a great day all! Godbless

  24. Dean, have you looked into Iran ,on the CodeFinder?

  25. Good morning CW et. al,

    First “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” to all my CW friends and family.

    We tried that one too and it didn’t work out so well, his name was Carter…… 🙂

  26. ………boy nobody has utterred truer words than that. Yeah I think perhaps a Republican dirt farmer might have been ok THEN, but NOW ……it is all up in the air. You got me on that one…..right on the money nonetheless.
