Obamacare Daily Round-Up 09-01
The above is from today's Rasmussen Report poll, here. Obama's approval is now at 45% approve, 53% disapprove and his Presidential Approval Index is at -11. Obama has lost conservatives, is losing or has lost independents and if his numbers drop just a couple of more percentage points, he will be losing liberals. Apparently winning the election did not equate to winning the presidency.
It's not just Rasmussen by the way. Zogby is reporting, "Loss of Democrats' Support Helps Bring Obama Job Approval Down to 42%." Obama has even dropped 9% amongst African-Americans!
David Brooks over at the New York Times has an op-ed up titled, "The Obama Slide." That's gotta hurt.
There is something frightening and indoctrinaire about Obama giving a speech directly to students, aka our children in general. But specifically this also smacks of propaganda when he releases this "Pre-K - 6 Menu of Classroom Activities: President Obama's Address To Students Across America" telling teachers how to "discuss" Obama's message AND related projects to do afterwards. Building America's future one indoctrinated child at a time?
"Sen. Grassley: No public option in health reform." ANY health reform by this Congress will be terrible. I would rather see Mr. Mackey of Whole Foods write a healthcare reform bill than any single member of Congress right now.
"Health-Care Anger Has Deeper Roots" from The Wall Street Journal. All of us who oppose Obamacare and the Cap and Tax Energy Bill know this but Congress is too stupid to see that their constituents are in REAL revolt.
Maybe the Connecticut senate passed this bad budget (here for article) because they were too busy playing solitaire to pay attention? Looks like Chris Dodd isn't the only thing that smells in the Nutmeg State.
This partnership between Unions and Fed is already alarming. The idiocy of raising taxes during a recession is alarming. But now we have two alarming situations in one that is summed up by this headline from TheHill.com, "AFL-CIO, Dems push new Wall Street tax." When Obama and his cronies are so deeply involved with Unions, I'm beginning to wonder if there is a Democrat-Mafia link going on?
Bill Maher, Barack Obama and the Truth About American Exceptionalism. This is a brilliant history lesson on the part of Mr. Whittle and should be viewed by all.
Another weapon in the fight against the pro-Obamacare lies - "The Free Market Is Not Another Form of Rationing."
CAUGHT ON TAPE: Obama HCAN Organizer Instructs Supporters How to Shout Down Opponents & Take Over Meetings is up over at GatewayPundit.com. I agree with the first comment - GatewayPundit deserves a Pulitzer for this! If only the mainstream media would pick up on this.
Bloggingheads.tv has an excellent dialogue up about Obama between Michelle Goldberg and Megan McArdle, here. In a related story, Moe Lane takes McArdle off his list.
Americans regard themselves as citizens, not subjects. "Americans regard themselves as citizens, not subjects. They may respect their government, but few feel servile toward it, and most are wary of it." Too right, sir. Too right!
"Media Stunned as ObamaCare Unravels" What's most annoying is that they still seem we need to be "persuaded" to accept Obamacare. No amount of persuasion can lead Americans to drink from the poisoned well of socialism.
Investor's Business Daily has this article up titled, "Cut Costs Without Rationing Care By Putting Patient Back In Charge."
The Washington Post is taking away one of Obama's claims about Obamacare with its reporting on this study titled, "Study Raises Questions About Cost Savings From Preventive Care."
The deficit is raining cats and dogs (read this Hypocrisy Hoedown article and you'll get the reference) but the jokers in Congress are still pushing Obamacare. Hope and Change, ya'll.
