Andy and Amy Mangione of Louisville, Ky. and their two boys are like most middle class families who work hard and pay their bills on time. The couple expected their insurance premiums to increase slightly under the new Affordable Care Act, but they got shock of their lives when they opened their latest insurance bill and realized their monthly premium had tripled!
Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in military prison Wednesday for leaking sensitive top secret documents to anti-secrecy website Wikileaks.
2 years ago, President Obama was adamant that Manning was an unpatriotic traitor who "broke the law." But Manning hopes that President Obama will have a change of heart now that Manning is one of the "sexual minorities" who are near and dear to Obama.
Yahoo News reports that Manning announced in a statement to "Today" that he identifies as female and wants to be known as Chelsea Manning.
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and Fox contributor Dick Morris both seem to think Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is just biding her time until she can run against Barack Obama for president in 2012.
On 60 Minutes earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented that the American economy is making it more difficult for her to do her job because other nations are telling her that “we always look to you because you have this great economy, and now you’re in the ditch.” Bill O’Reilly saw “a little jab” at the President in those comments, blaming the White House for her job troubles, but guest Dick Morris took that premise a bit further, suggesting the remarks, coupled with her silence on health care reform, were a deliberate attempt to undermine the President building up to 2012.“I think there is a subtle distancing going on, and it began over health care,” Morris noted, pointing out that Clinton was not vocal about supporting health care reform.

She sure wasn't. We heard nary a peep from Hillary when it came time to support Obama's health care reform initiative. She pretty much stayed out of it.
Will Hillary make a run for president in 2012 and thereby oust her boss from the White House? You bet 'cha!
You just know Hillary is sitting back collecting all types of intel to use against Obama in 2012!
For decades, full time workers have depended on health insurance provided by their employers to cover their family's health care needs.
Then along came Barack Obama and the Democrats who decided that changing history was more important than simply shoring up the financially strapped Medicare and Medicaid system, and changing the rules to allow more Americans to apply.
Now that the health care bill has passed, 4 major corporations (AT&T, Verizon, Caterpillar and Deere) plan to drop health coverage altogether for their employees -- and pay a penalty to the government instead.
This action will instantly terminate insurance coverage for millions of Americans who will be forced to negotiate with ruthless insurance companies on their own.
Internal documents recently reviewed by Fortune, originally requested by Congress, show what the bill’s critics predicted, and what its champions dreaded: many large companies are examining a course that was heretofore unthinkable, dumping the health care coverage they provide to their workers in exchange for paying penalty fees to the government.

Tongues are wagging that certain members of the International Olympic Committee lured Barack Obama to Copenhagen to publicly humiliate and embarrass him.
For months Obama planned not to go to Denmark to make a personal pitch for the Olympics. He said his priority was passing the lame duck healthcare reform bill. But he would send his wife Michelle Obama and senior advisor Valerie Jarrett in his stead. Historians pointed out that no other US president had ever made a personal pitch before the IOC members.
But according to the Drudgereport, White House aides were assured by IOC officials that Chicago would win the bid if Obama made a personal presentation in Denmark. The aides were told that if Obama didn't appear before the committee, the members would "notice" his absence.
The IOC played on Obama's weakness, realizing his narcissism would not allow him to say no.
So Obama made the overnight flight to Copenhagen believing the trip would cement his place in history as the first US president to help seal an Olympic bid.
Obama's narcissism is legendary and preceded him. But no one counted on Michelle Obama to display her arrogance when she told members of the Chicago delegation that her trip to Denmark was a 'sacrifice' for her.
The final straw was the fact that the other global leaders spent days schmoozing with the IOC members, but Obama flew in at the last minute spending a total of 4 hours on the ground in Copenhagen before flying back out.
When the voting was tallied, Chicago lost by a landslide in the first round, getting only 18 votes out of 94. It was the snub heard around the world.
And it must have been a crushing blow to both of the Obamas' egos.
Egg is all over Barack Obama's face today as the Chicago bid for the 2016 Olympics floats dead in the water. According to Drudgereport.com, Chicago was rejected in the first round. And as well it should.
Chicago is the worst place on the planet for the Summer Olympics or any international event. Who in their right mind would want to go to Chicago for any reason? I'm sure the Olympics committee weren't interested in running and ducking from bullets.
Instead of traveling to Copenhagen to bid for the games, Barack, Michelle and Oprah should have concentrated their efforts on making the streets of Chicago safer for its children. But they don't care about the kids.
In a recent radio interview, legendary crooner Andy Williams spoke of his contempt for Barack Obama and his (failed) attempts to socialize this country.
"Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing," he said, adding, "Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail." Source
Isn't it ironic that Obama has done more for the Muslim terrorist detainees at Gitmo than he's done for Americans?
More Hope and Change for you Kool Aid drinkers who embrace Barack Obama's unconstitutional Socialist policies. Drink up kiddies!:
Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.
Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."
Students at B. Bernice Young Elementary school in New Jersey aren't busy learning their ABC's or 123's, they're being brainwashed by pro-Obama teachers.
Imagine if your child's school hours were taken up by conservatives teaching them to sing praises to George Bush all day. No wonder their parents are outraged and contemplating pulling the kids out of school.
Here's the address of the school and the number if you would like to register a complaint:

Barack Hussein Obama verbally sparred with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Sunday over the government mandate included in ObamaCare that imposes a fine of $970-$3,800 on individuals who do not buy health insurance.
Pay attention to what Stephanopoulos asks Obama in the opening seconds of the video. It's clear that Obama has flip flopped (once again) from his campaign promise against mandates forcing taxes on American citizens.
Never mind that it's unconstitutional to force people to buy anything, but Obama makes himself look disingenuous by even arguing the point that all Americans have to buy car insurance. No, all Americans do not have to buy car insurance. Only the ones who have cars have to buy car insurance.
In the case of ObamaCare, everyone will be forced to buy health insurance whether they want it or not. And if they don't want health insurance, they will be fined. How is that not a tax increase?
