Obama Spends Our Money to Pull Wool over Seniors’ Eyes for Re-election

Read the entire article at American Spectator.

As Benjamin E. Sasse and Charles Hurt report, open enrollment for MA (Medicare Advantage) begins three weeks before voters go to the polls:

“It’s hard to imagine a bigger electoral disaster for a president than seniors in crucial states like Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio discovering that he’s taken away their beloved Medicare Advantage just weeks before an election.”

…Nearly 25 percent of all Medicare enrollees are on MA, and …well over three-fifths of MA beneficiaries have annual incomes of less than $30,000 and that the percentage of minorities enrolled in the program is much higher than is the case for traditional Medicare.

The electoral significance of these facts would hardly have been lost on the President’s political advisors when they learned that Obamacare’s MA cuts would be unveiled to the nation’s most reliable voters just before the November election. The resultant vision of surly seniors lining up in their millions at the polls to pull the lever for Mitt Romney presumably produced urgent emails and frantic phone calls, followed by a terse directive from the White House to Obama’s creatures at CMS to come up with plan to put off the cuts until after the election.

In due course, an $8.3 billion “demonstration project” materialized that would “temporarily restore Medicare Advantage funds so that seniors in key markets don’t lose their trusted insurance program in the middle of Obama’s re-election bid.”

LISTEN – Mark Levin: Obama Is an Imperial President

Mark Levin, “Obama Is an Imperial President,” audio posted on Real Clear Politics (emphasis & formatting mine–rhl)

“Obama, it would seem, wants to deny to others what he will not deny to himself.

He wants to deny to the children of others what he will not deny to his own children.

He wants to amass riches, but he doesn’t want you to amass wealth.

He doesn’t mind private school for his own children, but he minds it for your children.

He doesn’t mind eating whatever he wants to eat, but he minds what you eat.

He doesn’t mind taking that 747 one frivolous trip after another, one self-serving fundraising after another, but he minds what you drive and how much fuel you use. And we can go on and on.”

READ: Alarms over Obama coup against Constitution surging

by Bob Unruh, Published: April 13, 2012

Excerpt 1: There always have been those few who have launched diatribes over the dictatorial actions of any given U.S. presidential administration, over civil rights, foreign affairs, the economy, the draft or a dozen other topics…” ~snip

Excerpt 2: “But where previous generations of warnings emanated from lone wolves with their fax machines in dusty spare rooms, the current alarms are being issued by the likes of Investors Business Daily, First Amendment authority Nat Hentoff, New York Times best-selling author Robert Ringer and their equals.” ~snip

Excerpt 3: “Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News analyst… said, ‘I think the president is dangerously close to totalitarianism. A few months ago he was saying the Congress doesn’t count. The Congress doesn’t mean anything. I am going to rule by decree and by administrative regulation. Now he’s basically saying the Supreme Court doesn’t count. It doesn’t matter what they think. They can’t review our legislation.'” “That would leave just him as the only branch of government standing,” Napolitano said.

Excerpt 4  (emphasis mine–rhl): “Erik Rush, a columnist and author of sociopolitical fare, including “Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession,” wrote about the New Black Panthers, and how their “advancing Marxist agenda is being not-so-subtly choreographed from Barack Obama’s White House.””Civil unrest is an Obama administration objective, since it will facilitate crises sufficient for the president to justify suspensions of civil rights. Provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, Obama’s recent National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order, as well as others, have certainly paved the way for such action.

Hope & Change in Obama’s 2nd Term?

NOPEPresident Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”

President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

So, what other plans does the President have for us if he is re-elected. If he thinks his “flexibility” was hindered this term, I am not HOPEful that we will survive the rest of the CHANGE he has in store for us.

As Ryan says: “We know all too well that too many Americans are hurting today.” It is in these periods, when times are tough, “when the pie is shrinking, when businesses are closing, and when workers are losing their jobs,” that the American idea is tested.

To deal with these problems, President Obama engages in disingenuous arguments based on the concept of class warfare and the emphasis on egging on those in trouble to try and deal with their problems by squeezing the rich. As Ryan points out: Nearly three years into his presidency, look at where we are now: Petty and trivial?

Just last week, the president told a crowd in North Carolina that Republicans are in favor of “dirtier air, dirtier water, and less people with health insurance.” Can you think of a pettier way to describe sincere disagreements between the two parties on regulation and health care?Chronic avoidance of tough decisions? The president still has not put forward a credible plan to tackle the threat of ever-rising spending and debt, and it’s been over 900 days since his party passed a budget in the Senate.A preference for scoring cheap political points instead of consensus-building?

This is the same president who is currently campaigning against a do-nothing Congress, when in fact, the House of Representatives has passed over a dozen bills to help get the economy moving and deal with the debt, only to see the president’s party kill those bills in the do-nothing Senate.

The essence of the president’s approach, Ryan argues, is that “instead of working together where we agree, the president has opted for divisive rhetoric and the broken politics of the past. He is going from town to town, impugning the motives of Republicans, setting up straw men and scapegoats, and engaging in intellectually lazy arguments as he tries to build support for punitive tax hikes on job creators.”

“Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally” – Sen. B. H. Obama, 2006

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

— Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Congressional Report Blasts the Propaganda Presidency, Accuses Administration of Abuse of Office

Pajamas Media:  Exclusive: Congressional Report Blasts the Propaganda Presidency, Accuses Administration of Abuse of Office
by Bob Owens

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, led by Darrell Issa (R-CA), has issued a 37-page report (PDF) that accuses the White House of “an unprecedented number of public relations and propaganda efforts,” including efforts that the committee found to be inappropriate or illegal.

Executive branch agencies cited in the propaganda efforts include the Department of Education, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Justice, Department of Transportation, and the White House itself. The report also criticizes the White House for using the reach of the executive branch to funnel citizens to a website owned and operated by the Democratic National Committee.
