Tag Archive: Failures of the Obama Administration

Killing the goose that laid the golden egg

Over at the Hoover Institution journal, they have a damning article, appropriately titled “The United States of Envy”, where they give us a clear picture of the left’s strategy for the coming election:

In advance of the 2014 election, the Obama administration has drawn the political discussion away from its unpopular and flawed healthcare plan, usually called Obamacare, to bring public attention and support for increased income redistribution. President Obama openly encouraged envy

More selective law enforcement

One of the things that the DOJ gets to do is approve which companies get to merge or not. The other day I wrote about the pending Comcast-Time Warner merger, as a means of pointing out the abuses of this administration, and how, conveniently, democrats are the party you buy special favors from. Well, I now have confirmation of a different angle to the Comcast-Time Warner merger story, and the role the DOJ has … Read more

More proof the left is a bunch of economic illiterates.

This past weekend Matt Drudge of the famous Drudge Report website started a firestorm that had all the usual credentialed LSM idiots thinking they had scored a huge hit against a man they have hated for being instrumental in showing the LSM’s hypocritical status as nothing but a DNC propaganda machine. The controversy started with a tweet from Drudge about having paid what he labeled a “Liberty tax” in the case of the Obamacare penalty. … Read more

Color me unsurprised!

In the vein that reality always trump liberal illusions and fantasies about how things work in the real world, we get an article where a baffled MSM reports that if the minimum wage is jacked up, people will be laid off. I am not surprised that’s what is going to happen, and the article states so:

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A new study has found that 38 percent of employers will lay workers off

Obamacare keeps on giving.. (UPDATED)

Been a while since I pointed out how well Obamacare was working out for all, so this update, is due:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a House panel Wednesday that nobody knows how many Obamacare enrollees have actually paid their health insurance bills.

“People are buying a product in the private market,” Sebelius told the House Ways and Means Committee, which was holding a hearing on the 2015 HHS budget. “As

Can’t say I am surprised

I have dealt with plenty of libs that have made the argument that stupid rednecks vote against their own interests when they don’t vote for nanny state democrats, the assumption being that nanny state democrats and their massive vote buying scheme is something that benefits people the left feels are too stupid to do things on their own. And you bet that rednecks, along with minorities, are all seen as people that can’t do anything … Read more

Tell the lie enough times….

Obozo was in my state yesterday stumping for money and more blue adulation to stoke his massive ego, and one of the things he praised the state for, in his speech, was the minimum wage hike the donkey controlled political machine foisted on an already abused private sector. The reality on the ground in “The People’s Republic of Connecticut” is that decades of democrat control have devastated the economy. That article is from early … Read more

Unintended consequence!

Or something. Yeah, sure. What do you ask am I talking about? Well, the left’s recent realization that carrying a shit-ton of student debt will prevent you from buying a home. Now the left limits it to first time home buyers, but it applies to any homebuyer at all: if you have a student debt that is as big as a mortgage you have shown you are not a reliable debtor to most sane … Read more

Today it’s been 5 year since they promised a recovery (UPDATED)

Today marks the 5th anniversary of the Porculus bill that the left told us would solve all the problems causes by evil Boosh dropping taxes and starting all the wars they were for before they were against them. I suspect the LSM will not bring this up, because frankly, things look bleaker, if anything, today then they did then. And we only pissed away some $6 trillion to get here. No problem they don’t think … Read more

This shit must be so bad…

And disastrous for the left, because Obama has yet again moved out the Employer Mandate (not to guys going on a date) of Obamacare. From the article:

For the second time in a year, the Obama administration is giving certain employers extra time before they must offer health insurance to almost all their full-time workers. Under new rules announced Monday by Treasury Department officials, employers with 50 to 99 workers will be given until
