578.) During the first years of his campaign and presidency President Barack Obama told the American people a gut wreching story about his mothers battle with cancer, and with the disciples of lucifer the health care companies. In 2007, “I remember in the last month of her life, she wasn’t thinking about how to get well, she wasn’t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality, she was thinking about whether or not insurance was going to cover the medical bills and whether our family would be bankrupt as a consequence”. In 2008 “She was in her hospital room looking at insurance forms because the insurance company said that maybe she had a pre-existing condition and maybe they wouldn’t have to reimburse her for her medical bills”. In 2010 during the healthcare summit “My Mother, who was self-employed, didn’t have reliable healthcare, and she died of ovarian cancer. There probably is nothing modern medicine could have done about that, it was caught late and thats a hard cancer to diagnose. I do remember the last six months of her life, insurance companies threatening that they would not reimburse her for her costs. And her having to be on the phone in the hospital argueing with insurance companies when what she should have been doing is spending time with her family”. All of these stories tell of a sick woman trying desperatly to ensure that her family would not face a financial burden upon her death. Unfortunatly it appears that this story wasn’t as bleak as President Obama would have us believe. In a new Book by New York Times writer Janny Scott titled Singular Woman: the Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother the author discribes a much different story. The President’s mother did in fact have health insurance through her work. While researching for the book Correspondences between the President’s Mother and Washington Examiners Byron York, show that she did in fact have health insurance. Mr. Scott said, “Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment. Once she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly, leaving Ann to pay only the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which, she said, came to several hundred dollars a month.” That doesn’t sound like a world ending experince to me. Now to be fair the President’s mother did in fact have a claim denied, but that was only when she tried to get compensated for her medical costs and living expenses. What I also find interesting is that the President claims his mother was self employed, unfortunatly Mr. Scott’s research clearly shows that the President’s Mother took a job in 1994 with an American company called Development Alternatives. So two lies for the price of one. Now I am not trying to down play the struggle this woman went through in the last couple months of her life, what I am doing is calling out the President for lying about it for political gain.
579.) President Obama has been caught once again displaying his arrogance and disdane for you the American people, when asked about a poll where 69% of the American People said they do not support raising the debt ceiling President Obama responded by saying this, “Let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. You know, the public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury auction goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family, they’re worrying about their jobs. They’re worrying about their neighborhood. They have got a lot of other things on their plate. We’re paid to worry about it”. Proof the President does not understand the American system. What he doesn’t understand is that he is not paid to worry about it, he and congress are paid to do as they are told. They work for us, they do not think for us. We sent them to Washington to represent our views, not to act as free agents on our behalf. Maybe he should start listening to his employers, his bosses, the true masters of this country. What he doesn’t seem to understand is that he and congress aremembers of the public at large. He is no different than any one of us. The American People are smarter and more intune than he realizes. We, unlike him, understand that the debt in this country is out of control, and that barrowing more money is not the answer to getting out of debt. What the President is proposing is standing in a bucket and trying to pull ourselves up. His arrogance is sickening, and maddening.
580.) President Obama has once again bypassed congress, ignored the consitution to end a crisis that his adminstration all but created. President Obama has signed an executive order In an effort to stem the illicit flow of weapons into Mexico. So now we are trying to stop them, it wasn’t too long ago the ATF was giving them to criminals. It is almost like creating a crisis to push your agenda…. hmm…. The exectutive order basically requires that if someone buys too many of a similar type high power fire arm, two, with in a five day span the store must report that to the Federal Government. What qualifies, any semi-automatic with a detachable magazine, and larger than a 22 caliber… so basically 99.999% of fire arms. Abuse of Executive power, theft of privacy, more government oversight, nothing here sounds like a win for President Obama’s employers.
