MIAMI (AP) — With just weeks left to sign up for health care under the Affordable Care Act, Michelle Obama zeroed in on recruiting the crucial young adult demographic during a visit to a Miami community health center Wednesday.
The first lady congratulated a handful of residents who had just enrolled during an intimate event, asking one woman whether she had gotten her son to enroll.
“Tell him he could get hit by a car. It’s crazy. They don’t think about that kind of stuff,” said Obama, who moments later applauded another mother for signing herself and adult son up for insurance plans. “Did you get his friends?”
“We have our most precious people walking around here at any point time being hit by a car or being struck by an unforeseen illness and they will not be able to get the care they need when it costs so little. … We need people to make sure we reach out to the young people in our lives.” Read more at: tampacbslocal.com.
As owner of a business that delivers healthcare Obama’s budget has me chomping at the bit to grow, expand, explode with new jobs! Good luck with that…
“President Obama unveiled an ambitious $3.9 trillion budget blueprint Tuesday that seeks billions of dollars in fresh spending to boost economic growth but also pledges to tame the national debt by raising taxes on the wealthy, slashing payments to health providers and overhauling the nation’s immigration laws.”
Always candid congressman Trey Gowdy (R SC) discusses National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s comments on Meet the Press, where she said she has no regrets for using misleading talking points about the Benghazi attack.
About David Gregory’s softball (or should I say beach ball) interview with Rice on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” he said, “I get tougher questions in the Bojangles drive-thru than he asked her.”
Department of Veterans Affairs employees destroyed veterans’ medical records to cancel backlogged exam requests [AUDIO]
Employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) destroyed veterans’ medical files in a systematic attempt to eliminate backlogged veteran medical exam requests, a former VA employee told The Daily Caller.
Audio of an internal VA meeting obtained by TheDC confirms that VA officials in Los Angeles intentionally canceled backlogged patient exam requests.
“The committee was called System Redesign and the purpose of the meeting was to figure out ways to correct the department’s efficiency. And one of the issues at the time was the backlog,” Oliver Mitchell, a Marine veteran and former patient services assistant in the VA Greater Los Angeles Medical Center, told TheDC.
“We just didn’t have the resources to conduct all of those exams. Basically we would get about 3,000 requests a month for [medical] exams, but in a 30-day period we only had the resources to do about 800. That rolls over to the next month and creates a backlog,” Mitchell said. ”It’s a numbers thing. The waiting list counts against the hospitals efficiency. The longer the veteran waits for an exam that counts against the hospital as far as productivity is concerned.” Read more at: dailycaller.com.
FCC to monitor news rooms? Adds new meaning to “State Run Media.” Hammer and sickle!
The Obama FCC will start policing newsrooms recommending what the organizations should report on.
The Wall Street Journal: News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.
But everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.
Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.

Pat Caddell said yesterday on Fox News that the reason Republican leadership hasn’t pushed for a high level investigation of the IRS for targeting the Tea Party is because they want the IRS to go after the Tea Party:
When you have 71 percent who want an investigation, 64 percent who believe it is a sign of corruption including nearly a majority of Democrats, the reason is the establishment Republicans want the IRS to go after the Tea Party. Got it? They want them to go after the Tea Party because the Tea Parties are an outside threat to their power hold. And I’m telling you the lobbying consulting class of the Republican Party or Republican leadership who have been attacking the Tea Party and alienating them, they want the IRS to do this! therightscoop.com.

Here’s congressman Trey Gowdy again. This clip is from FoxNews on Nov. 17th, 2014. This guy always nails it. Simply put: the hits just keep on coming!
…In a corrupt scheme, Sue and Settle, fireplaces next. But a half-billion dollar biomass plant is OK.
As of January 3rd, the EPA banned about 80% of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts in the United States. Stoves which are used to heat 12% of the homes in America and are especially needed in outlying rural areas. Fireplaces are also being looked at.
The EPA is attempting to reduce particle pollution with new rules. Instead of limiting fine airborne particulate emissions to 15 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) of air, the change will impose a maximum 12 μg/m3 limit. That is equivalent to a person smoking 3 to 4 cigarettes in a small confined space.
The draconian EPA regulations will be spread out, one will take place in March and the next in five to eight years. Stoves currently in use will not be affected but obviously, getting them repaired will become more and more difficult.
They haven’t yet gone after outdoor appliances or home heating appliances, but can they be far behind? Will people be able to heat their homes in a future controlled by extreme environmentalists? Read more at: independentsentinel.com.
Published on Feb 15, 2014 In her opening statement on ‘Justice’, FNC’s Judge Jeanine Pirro exposes and defines Barack Obama’s continued and unchallenged abuse of executive power.
Let’s see, what are his options? Surrender? Capitulate? Give in? Beg? Cry?
Employer health care mandate delayed for small businesses.
But as Obama said: “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.”
The Hill: The Obama administration on Monday announced it is delaying the employer mandate in ObamaCare until 2016 for some businesses.
This delay in the mandate — the second so far — would only apply to businesses with between 50 and 99 employees, who would have until January 2016 to decide whether to offer insurance to their employees or pay a penalty. Businesses would also be barred from cutting their workers in order to fall under the threshold. Continue reating at: thehill.com.
Breaking: This interview was done on Sunday. On Monday, president Obama unilaterally delayed the employer mandate because: “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.”
Obama and Obamacare’s supporters are desperate. They’re now pushing for a 3-year delay in the start of the law in order to get past the next two elections. Remember how Ted Cruz and conservatives only wanted a one-year delay?
Isn’t it odd that last fall Obama was so anxious to start up Obamacare by October 1 that he locked WWII vets out of their own memorial to bully the Senate into opposing the delay? Might he wish he could get a do-over on that decision?
In this 5-minute video, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) demolishes both Obama and the disaster that is his “signature achievement” — Obamacare.
In their latest ploy, Obamacare’s flailing supporters are telling us how loss of a job or lost work hours is actually a GOOD thing. Do they know how absurd they sound?
Most of us are aware of the recent IRS targeting of conservative and tea party groups by delaying or denying their 501(C)(4) tax exempt status. Naturally, the Obama regime strongly denies this. In fact when interviewed by Bill O’Reilly of Fox News on Super Bowl Sunday, the president said that there was “…not even a smidgen of truth” to this allegation. Never mind that in May of 2013, the IRS admitted and apologized for this targeting.
So what the administration couldn’t to by statute, they now are attempting administratively by issuing new draconian regulations (see article and video below) that severely limit these organizations’ free speech. This is a classic example of if you can’t win the game, change the rules.
Because these proposed regulations do not apply to Gainesville Tea Party which is organized as a Limited Liability Corp. (llc), and not a 501(C)(4) corporation, some people believe we are immune from this governmental overreach. However, nothing could be further from the truth. This brings to mind a famous quotation from about 1946 which has been attributed to Martin Niemöller:
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”
An attack on anyone’s free speech is an attack on everyone’s free speech!
