I believed President Obama when he made his many refreshing and seductive promises of hope before the 2008 election. I did vote for President Obama. I have regretted it ever since.
All President Obama’s promises of transparent government, working for the people, and fixing healthcare have turned out to be false hope.
President Obama has not listened to the wishes of the people. He is issuing executive orders as he tells the nation what they want to hear.
Barack Obama faked all of us out in 2008 with his promises.
He is doing the same thing during this campaign season for his re-election. He is saying he has not had enough time to fulfill his promises. He said he would accomplish his goals in the first year after his election. Some people still believe him even though his actions are making things worse.
President Obama has created a myriad of problems as he has shifted the balance of power from congress to the executive branch of government. The shift is destroying our economy and our healthcare system with rules and regulations that are not practical.
His re-election campaign is trying to distract Americans from the real problems he has created. The key issues facing the nation are the economy, Obamacare, freedom of religion, freedom of choice, class warfare and the distortions of the American constitution’s principles.
President Obama’s personality is intoxicating. He fooled us once. He is betting he can fool us again.
I have tried to look at President Obama’s actions through the eyes of my liberal friends. I cannot see what they see.
Aside from double counting his Medicare reductions which he continues to deny, he is delaying the implementations of his reductions in Medicare benefits until after the election to not anger seniors.
“About half of Obamacare’s costs are to be covered with money taken from an already nearly bankrupt program for seniors.” Medicare
He is continuing to double count, ignoring America’s impending debt crisis.
“Under the implementation schedule stipulated in Obamacare, many seniors would either lose their plans, or learn that they are going to lose them, before the election that will likely decide Obamacare’s—and Obama’s—fate. “
President Obama, anticipating a senior revolt if they got wind of the scheduled reductions, launched a public relations campaign to distract seniors. The traditional mainstream media has promoted the distraction.
President Obama launched an $8.35 billion “demonstration project” to postpone the majority of Obamacare’s scheduled Medicare Advantage cuts until after election. Over 30% of seniors are on Medicare Advantage.
His goal was to keep awareness of the effects Obamacare will have on seniors who have Medicare Advantage under their radar until after the seniors vote for him in November. After November seniors will have lost their chance to respond effectively.
President Obama’s own Government Accountability Office (GAO) has said this “demonstration project” is a sham. The GAO has reported that the demonstration project has multiple “design defects”. The GAO has recommended to Kathleen Sebelius that the demonstration project should be cancelled because it will not demonstrate anything and is a waste of money.
The design does not conform to the principles of “budget neutrality.” This waste of taxpayer money is obvious. President Obama is increasing the national debt by $8.35 billion in order to increase his reelection chances by obtaining seniors’ votes.
He is also trying to distract seniors from his goals by running taxpayer funded TV ads.
“ President Obama ran millions of dollars’ worth of taxpayer-funded TV ads featuring Andy Griffith saying things like, “That new health care law sure sounds good for all of us on Medicare!” It mailed out full-color, taxpayer-funded propaganda brochures singing the same tune.”
“ It repeatedly claimed (and continues to claim) that money taken out of Medicare to fund Obamacare would—magically—also stay in Medicare and be used to extend its solvency. “
The $8.35 billion dollars of taxpayers money might be illegally being used by President Obama. He is using it to shore up presidential reelection chances without anyone noticing or saying anything in protest.
“In fact, according to the GAO, Obama’s $8.35 billion gambit will cost more than all 85 other Medicare demonstration projects combined.”
The $8.35 billion is taxpayer money. It will increase the budget deficit with no value added except to President Obama’s election potential.
The $8.35 billion dollars is more than the combined annual profits of the nation’s two largest and most profitable health insurance companies..
I hope President Obama cannot pull the wool over seniors and all of our eyes once more with another trick play before the election.
