Big money is coming out to back Republican challengers to the few liberty candidates up for re-election in 2014. Among those targeted is Representative Justin Amash of Michigan. Amash is one of a handful of lawmakers who pushed Weeper of the House John Boehner to make a stand on Obamacare and fight over the government shutdown and debt ceiling.
The tragic farce that is Obamacare gives new nuggets every day. Now we know from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that there is no Federal requirement to perform background checks on Obamacare navigators and it’s quite possible some criminals have found their way into the system.
Politicians lie. It’s their stock in trade. They have to if they are to be elected. So it is certainly no surprise that the undocumented White House usurper whose very life is a fraud would unapologetically tell you for three years that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period,” and then turn around and brazenly say that he never said that.
Under rules created in the wake of Obamacare’s creation, Congressional staffers are supposed to get their health insurance through Washington, D.C.’s, health insurance exchange. But, of course, the political class has established that rules don’t apply to it. Obamacare isn’t good enough for them.
A full court press to push an amnesty bill through the House of Representatives will begin next week. It will be spearheaded by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a coalition of Big Business and Silicon Valley, immigration activists and liberal religious leaders. An amnesty bill is bad for the American worker. It’s bad for the economy. It’s bad for America.
America is about eight-tenths of a percentage point from reaching a tipping point from which recovery of the republic from socialistic forces will be impossible without violent revolution or catastrophic economic collapse.
We recently got a taste of how the food stamp army reacts when its government handouts are delayed for a few moments. It will be interesting to see if the same reaction occurs when it realizes the average family’s monthly payment will drop from $275 per month to $239.
In the past dozen years, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — also known as food stamps — has grown from a $17 billion a year Federal expenditure to $78 billion a year. Food stamp recruiters have sign-up quotas of 150 per month.
People in America who are getting free food stamps consider it a right rather than a privilege. This attitude will be very bad when the food stamp system fails. This was proved last weekend when the computer system that runs the Electronic Benefits Transfer system crashed in 17 States.
There may be some interesting activity in and around the Washington, D.C., cesspool this weekend: a planned trucker protest, the possible closure of the interstates around the capital city, a likely barricade burst-through and the scheduled Million Vet March on the Memorials.
