Health Care and Stimulus updates,

458.) President Obama said that if the porkulus bill past the United States Unemployment rate would not go above 8%. Well the unemployment hit 10.1% in september.  President Obama’s response It would have been worse without the stimulus bill. The same thing he said when unemployment hit 8% and then 9%…. I am noticing a trend, when exactly does President Obama admit that he and progressivism have failed, most likely never.

459.) President Obama’s beloved Porkulus bill has been a great example of progressive corruption and incompetence. In the latest scene in the ongoing drama of stimulus failure $18 million dollars went to 72,000 people who where dead. 4.3 million dollars where sent to 17,000 inmates. Thankfully though almost half of the money was returned. President Obama great job.

450.) President Obama has granted 30 companys exemptions from his new health care law. The reason, companys could not afford to pay for the increase in cost to provide low cost health care plans. I wonder Mr. President why it was that companies did not already  affor those plans, maybe it was because they couldn’t afford. I mean every company can’t be GM and expect a government bail out when the UAW runs them into the ground.  This is yet another sign that President Obama has chosen to act as though he was above the law, instead of insuring fair and equal protection under the law, he is picking and choosing who gets to ignore the law and who has to suffer from its crippling effects.

  1. @socialdemocracyforall – You can keep telling yourself he is not a socalist, but he is. He is not a magician that is true. Something else that he is is incompetent. He continues to believe in the failed Big Government policies of  Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, and FDR.  He continues to think that more government spending will bail out the United States. He forgets that it is the Private Sector and individual business owners who create jobs. Also according to Gallup the Current US unemployment rate is 10.1%. 

  2. 458)  Obama makes promises, and when he can’t keep them, he just says “well, it’s not as easy as that.  Unemplyment rates released by the gov’t are only for those who recieve unemployment.  It doesn’t include those claims that are denied, nor does it include those who just gave up.  So whatever the rate the gov’t tells us, it’s actually even higher.459)  I would love to know where the money that wasn’t returned is.  How does this even happen?  If they’re sending money to these folks just in a stimulus, how many Social Security checks and other welfare checks go out to those who are no longer living?  Who’s pockets are being lined with all this money?460)  Is there a list of which 30 companies?  And why only 30?  I can guarantee that there are many more out there that can’t afford this.  On a side note, the socialist dems told us we could keep our current insurance.  This is also a lie.  Companies will have to begin to offer plans that meet the standards of this new bill.  They are not going to keep the old plans while adding the new ones.  It would cost them even more to have multiple plans with their insurance providers.  Inurance companies sell health insurance in bulk for big discounts.  They would charge a company more to have two different plans.  Of course, Obama and his cronies will tell you it’s your employer’s fault and not theirs. 

  3. @obamawatch – While I’m sure I can’t change your opinion about Obama being a Socialist, these are the current unemployment figures according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics:THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION — SEPTEMBER 2010Nonfarm payroll employment edged down (-95,000) in September, and the unem-ployment rate was unchanged at 9.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Sta-tistics reported today. Government employment declined (-159,000), reflec-ting both a drop in the number of temporary jobs for Census 2010 and job losses in local government. Private-sector payroll employment continued to trend up modestly (+64,000).http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

  4. @grim_truth – I don’t have the names, but I know at least two companies have sent letters to parents, telling them that they will no longer insure children.

  5. It is not only the small companies that are or will be hurting by the Obamacare Bill.  My son is a manager at CiCi’s Pizza.  Not a shift manager, but manager manager and he called me to help him find coverage for his diabetes 1 child.  The best offer he could find was somewhere between $400/800 per month just on the one child.  He feels like he will have to let himself and the rest of the family take their chances.  And I wouldn’t consider CiCi’s a small company.

  6. @socialdemocracyforall – Those stats are only for claims that are paid out.  They do not include claims which are denied, folks who haven’t filed yet, and those who have just given up.  Google “real unemployment.”

  7. @grim_truth – correct these are not the manipulated numbers of the feds, they are the true unemployment numbers.  Gallup classifies American workers as underemployed if they are either unemployed or working part time but wanting full-time work. The findings reflect more than 18,000 phone interviews with U.S. adults aged 18 and older in the workforce, collected over a 30-day period. Gallup’s results are not seasonally adjusted and tend to be a precursor of government reports by approximately two weeks.Results are based on telephone interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking Sept. 1-30, 2010, with a random sample of 18,146 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±1 percentage point.Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones and cellular phones, with interviews conducted in Spanish for respondents who are primarily Spanish-speaking. Each daily sample includes a minimum quota of 150 cell phone respondents and 850 landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas among landline respondents for gender within region. Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member had the most recent birthday.Samples are weighted by gender, age, race, Hispanic ethnicity, education, region, adults in the household, cell phone-only status, cell phone-mostly status, and phone lines. Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2009 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older non-institutionalized population living in U.S. telephone households. All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting and sample design.In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.http://www.gallup.com/poll/143426/gallup-finds-unemployment-september.aspx

  8. @socialdemocracyforall – There ARE folks out there who don’t believe in handouts.  I’ve been unemployed before and didn’t file.  These are people who actually used their heads and put money back into savings to live off of in case something should happen.  These are the folks who lost their jobs, but try to do it on their own for a while before filing for unemployment.  Some people actually have pride in doing things on their own.

  9. I voted for him, hoping that he’ll make a better America for us but look what’s happening now. If this trend will continue then we are to see more unemployed fellas on the street.vitamin c

  10. @jennyferrer – I think many people fall into that same category, unfortunatly i think you are right about the current trend.  @grim_truth – Gasp, you can’t mean you expect people to be responsible…. that is just evil… not really, but that seems to be how the progressive left seem to think.
