ObamaCare Damage: BC/BS Cancels Most Alabama Residents ObamaCare Compliant Plans Cost Twice as Much

Remember when the President promised that insurance premiums would drastically decrease when ObamaCare kicked in? OK, here’s yet another example of how that was a blatant lie. And for those that used to get insurance from their plan, you’re hours might have been reduced, adding insult to injury.  That, and you are mandated to buy an overpriced plan, or pay a fine. Isn’t one-size-fits-all government grand? And, this is where I remind everyone that if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  We told you this would happen.  You were warned. Elections have consequences.  

Layoff Bomb Continues: Social Media Traffic Reflects Grim Job Outlook

It seems that the layoff bomb continues.  Here is a screencap from Twitchy. The main article has even more, so check it out. More and more people are losing their jobs, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing.  The question is, how long before the media covers it, and what spin will they use to cover for the Obama Administration? NOTE:  The tweets shown above are as is, I can make no claim to their veracity.  It is, after all, the internet.  However, I see little benefit to lying about these things.

This is not  new.  The communists made an art form out of it.  Remember this from […]

Labor Force Participation Rate Continues Obama Drop

The Bureau of Labor Statistics measures the number of people in the US who are employed- it’s called the Labor Force Participation Rate. Since 1980, on average 65.8% of the number of people available to work have in fact been producing goods and services. From 1988 to 2008 we were above this average, but since 2008 the number of people being productive, paying taxes, and contributing goods and services to our nation’s wealth has dramatically dropped. Today, only 63.5% of people are employed and this number is dropping steadily- in the last year alone the number of people participating in […]

Unemployment not an Issue in 2012? What did David Plouffe mean?

unemployment

Obama troll-master, David Plouffe, made a statement on Wednesday that mystified quite a few people.  I heard Limbaugh talk about it during my Friday lunch break, and Lonely Conservative posted about it later.  Here is the comment, via The Hill… “The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers,” Plouffe said, according to Bloomberg. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’ […]
