Republicans Also Responsible for Obama’s High School Grades

The Brookings Institute came out with a study last week that looks at failures by the federal government. It concludes what we’ve talked about many times: that the federal government is fumbling the ball more and more often:

The federal government is failing now more than ever. That’s the conclusion of a unique taxonomy of federal ball-dropping just released by Paul C. Light, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.

The study tracks

The Imperial Presidency, Reloaded

Let’s imagine the following situation:

In 2012, Mitt Romney wins the election. He tries to repeal Obamacare but the Democratic Senate won’t even take it up. He then tries to pass a bill reforming the law, but the Senate rejects him again. He then proceeds to, by executive order:

  • Delay the minimum requirements of the insurance policies until after the midterm election.
  • Change the date of compliance for the employer mandate and entertain the possibility

    The CBO Is About to Get Droned

    That sound you heard was the White House trying to spin the CBO’s latest report on Obamacare.

    The Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by more than two million in coming years, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday in the most detailed analysis of the law’s impact on jobs.

    After obtaining coverage through the health law, some workers may forgo employment, while others may reduce hours, according to a report by the

    More battlespace preparations..

    In an article, carried in Al Jazeera of all places, titled Jill Abramson talks to John Seigenthaler, we find one tid-bit of information pertinent to the recent conversation about the secretive nature of this WH – the one that claimed it would be the most transparent administration EVAH! back during the early campaign days – and the reason so many people are finally catching on that this den of thieves is up to no … Read more

    Home for the Holidays

    Busy day, but I thought you’d get a kick out of this. Barack Obama is encouraging people to take some time during the holidays to talk to their families about Obamacare.

    This holiday season, millions of Americans have a chance to get quality, affordable health insurance—many for the first time. If you have family members who are uninsured, you can play a big part in helping them find coverage that works for them. It

    The wheels are coming off the bus

    While the LSM here in the US does nothing but provide cover for the buffoon in chief, the foreign press points out that this idiot is still lying or out of his league:

    President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of progressive volunteers on Monday evening that ‘more than 100 million Americans’ – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act.

    The fix is in..

    And in this case it sucks badly. Everyone is baffled about Obama’s proposed fix to the predicted Obamacare disaster. The lies told about being able to keep everything you had right then if you liked it told then, have basically forced the collectivists that want to take over healthcare to walk back their botched implementation. But the fix they have put in place again refuses to acknowledge the way things work in the real Read more

    Physician, Heal Nothing

    It finally seems to have sunk into the Obama Administration how badly this Obamacare thing is going. There have been rumblings that the system will not be fixed by the end of the month (color me surprised). The total enrollment is something like 100,000 (only a quarter from the federal exchange). And millions of people are livid over having their policies cancelled.

    If you’ve followed Obama for the last five years, you know what comes … Read more

    “Pour encourager les autres!”

    That’s frog for “To set an example for the others“, and that’s precisely why this WH will never, ever, give Snowden any form of clemency. In fact, if they ever do, Snowden is advised to decline, albeit politely, under the expectation that they are lying to him so they can get him, and then, they will punish him. Nobody lies as often and with such aplomb as the members of this “The most … Read more

    More Obamanomics “UNEXECTEDLY!” news

    Obama must be going for a perfect score. Not only has his signature achievement put this country on a path where most employment will be part-time, if you can find jobs that is, straddled us all with more debt obligations, and in general grown the welfare state obligations those of us that produce have to pay for, but his tenure has also brought us a 3.2% decline in wages. Considering that the really well … Read more
