The dumbing down of America is accelerating. A massive federal takeover of education known as “Common Core” is attempting to impose nationwide academic standards on public schools throughout the entire country. Thanks to the backing of billionaire Bill Gates, endless promotion by the U.S. Department of Education, and financial bribes to state governments by the Obama administration, 45 states and Washington, D.C. have already agreed to implement the full Common Core standards in their schools. Unfortunately, these “standards” are doing to public education what Obamacare is doing to our health care system – absolutely ruining it. Just look at how basic math instruction has changed. Posted below is a comparison between the “old method” of subtraction and the “new method” of subtraction being taught in many of our schools. When I first came across this on Facebook, I thought that it was a joke…
How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility? What you are about to see is absolutely astounding. It is a long list of important promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president. If he had only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to overlook that. After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars. Unfortunately, many of the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in nature. For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that “you will be able to keep your health care plan” under Obamacare. But now we are learning that he knew that this was a lie all along. Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew that this was a lie all along too. In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, (Read More...)
Did you know that Obamacare contains huge incentives that will actually motivate people to try to reduce their incomes? It’s true. Under Obamacare, making less money can pay off big time. As you will see below, reducing your income by just $1,000 could get you an Obamacare subsidy worth over $14,000. Who wouldn’t want to make that trade? And guess what? Obamacare also makes divorce highly profitable for millions of American couples. In fact, there are some U.S. couples that are already considering divorce due to the provisions contained in the new health care law. Of course those couples still plan to live together – they just want to get divorced so that they can save thousands of dollars on their health care expenses. Yes, I know that sounds absolutely crazy. But this is actually happening. The truth is that Obamacare is turning out to be a much larger disaster than anyone anticipated, and it seems like new “surprises” just keep popping up with each passing day.
The figures that you are about to see were calculated using the (Read More...)
The launch of Obamacare has been a complete and total nightmare so far. The “online exchanges” are constantly crashing, there are endless glitches and delays, and many of the people that actually have been able to successfully register for an account are discovering that health insurance premiums under Obamacare are far higher than what they are used to paying. In fact, as I wrote about the other day, some Americans that have had their old policies canceled by their insurance companies are discovering that their health insurance costs will double or even triple under Obamacare. What a great “success”, eh? Under Obamacare, Americans are going to pay more for health care, they are going to have more limited health care options, they are going to be subjected to much more paperwork, and if they choose not to participate in the system they are going to be hit with very punitive fines. What’s not to (Read More...)
I wish I had some good news for you. But I don’t. The U.S. health care system is a complete and total disaster and it is going to get a lot worse in the years ahead. Even before Obamacare it was projected that we were going to be facing a shortage of more than 100,000 doctors by the year 2025, and now hundreds of thousands more doctors are thinking of leaving the profession because of Obamacare. Also thanks to Obamacare, health care costs and health insurance premiums are rising faster than ever and yet the level of care continues to decline. Our health care system is now totally dominated by government bureaucrats, health insurance companies and pharmaceutical corporations. The truth is that the entire industry has become a giant money making scam, and the American people are being squeezed for every last penny. We spend far more for health care than anyone else in the world, and the results are pathetic at best.
The following are 11 signs that the U.S. health care system is heading straight (Read More...)
It is absolutely mind blowing that any Republican would ever consider casting a single vote for Newt Gingrich. The truth is that Newt Gingrich is not a real conservative. He isn’t even close. After he left Congress, he spent years portraying himself as a “progressive” and he devoted a lot of time and resources to promoting liberal causes. But now that he is running for office as a Republican again, all of a sudden he is trying to sound like a conservative. And it is fooling a whole lot of people. One recent poll had his support up to 38 percent. But a Gingrich administration would be a total disaster for America. A Gingrich administration would essentially be just about the same as a second Obama administration. That is how liberal Newt Gingrich is. Gingrich is a big time RINO (“Republican in name only”) that is so liberal that he should actually be in the other political party. If you believe that Newt Gingrich is a real conservative and you plan to vote for him, then you are being incredibly foolish.
As you read this, there are not enough doctors and hospitals for everyone in America. But thanks to the health care bill that Barack Obama and the Democrats rammed down the throats of the American people, that shortage is about to get a whole lot worse. The truth is that the new health care law is going to force many doctors out of the system and it is already forcing the cancellation of many planned doctor-owned hospitals. What you are going to read below will frighten you. It should. It is the truth and it isn’t pretty. The U.S. health care system is about to undergo a radical transformation, and a lot of people are going to be really upset about what happens.
Even without the new health care law, the U.S. medical industry was already looking at a shortage of doctors in the coming years. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the United States will likely face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years.
Most of you know by now that the U.S. House of Representatives has passed the health care reform bill and has sent it to Barack Obama to be signed into law. The government takeover of the health care system will soon be complete and the earliest it will have any chance of being repealed is after the 2012 elections, because Obama will veto any bill that seeks to repeal Obamacare.
It is a sad day for the American people and it is a sad day for America.
But at least there were a few brave members of Congress that fought to the bitter end. One of them was U.S. Rep. John Boehner. Boehner made an impassioned plea on the floor of the House in an effort to sway votes, but it was not enough. However, this speech by Boehner on the floor of the House on the eve of the vote will go down in history as one of the most memorable moments of this entire health care debate.
