    Pay no attention to rotimann, chief.

    He's a full blown socialist, complete with a wallet full of food stamps, totally free obamacare, and a maxed out Earned Income Tax Credit.

    Don't expect him to think like anybody who's ever run a business or met a payroll.

  • Anybody who follows "proper protocol" for becoming an American Citizen nowadays is a damn FOOL.

    Obama is sending a message to the world that the best way to become an American Citizen is simply to swim across the Rio Grande River...

    ... and democratic officials will be waiting for them with plenty of Food Stamps, Obamacare, and K thru 12 education vouchers, once they've dried off from their swim.

    If you ever wondered why both taxes, and deficits, are rocketing higher...... wonder no more.

  • I'm middle class, and my Health Insurance Premium increased from $196 per month in 2009 (Obamacare began to take affect in 2010) to $509 today.

    It is now consuming more than 17% of my take home pay. Makes you wonder why they call it the "Affordable (sic) Care Act", doesn't it.

    Well, here's why.

    A 60-year-old, fellow, middle class Friend of mine took one look at the HUGE Obamacare premium that was all set to Hammer his wallen... and decided to RETIRE, to reduce his income.

    It worked. Instead of paying over $500 a month like me, he's only paying $68 per month... and that's for an Obamacare GOLD policy... much better than my expensive, BRONZE policy.

    By becoming "unproductive", my friend saved a bundle... but then... he isn't all that "unproductive", actually.
    Instead, he's working under the table for cash (he used to own a plumbing company... now he's just fixing pipes for cash under the table).

    He's just waayyy understating his income, so he can get lots of Obama's extravagant benefits, which now include Cheap Obamacare that the REST of us have to PAY for.

    The old Soviet Union used to have a big, underground economy like ours is becoming. Our Grandfathers would turn over in their graves if they could see how Socialized and unproductive out country is becoming. The 1.8% average GDP growth the US has had since the recession is the SLOWEST, post-recession growth the US has achieved since World War II.

    Not surprising, with illegals flooding over the border, Veterans dying in VA waiting lines, and Obamacare Hammering the most productive Americans.

  • Snubbing congress again, and vowing to "act alone" with his "I've got a Pen and a Phone", executive order machine, the King of American stated that he's going to give those 5 million illegal aliens "amnesty".

    Obama's decree essentially makes a mockery of the time-honored, process for attaining U.S. citizenship. We are telling the world NOT to "apply" for citizenship through proper channels...

    ... but simply to swim across the Rio Grande River, and there will be plenty of government workers on the other side to issue them food stamps, free obamacare, and k-thru-12 education, once they finish drying off.

  • He has collaborated with Harry Reid to effectively Shut Down Congress.

    He will now issue an executive order to grant Amnesty to over 5 MILLION illegals who entered the U.S. illegally.

    He is Essentially SHREDDING the normal, legal process that people are supposed to follow to become American Citizens.

    This is HORRIBLE. Worst U.S. president in history... hands down.

  • By refusing to lead any effort to enter discussions with congress, and instead, hurl accusations at congress, Obama has shut down any chance of a "legal" outcome to the Avalanche of illegals stampeding over the U.S. southern border.

    Now that Obama has succeeded in shutting congressional action on the crisis Completely Down, he is threatening to take matters into his own hands, and issue Illegal executive orders, using his ongoing "I've got a pen and a phone" campaign to do whatever he damn well PLEASES about the Border Crisis.

    Tops on his list, is Obama's plan to grant amnesty to some 5 MILLION illegal alians who have crossed the border in recent months, essentially Shredding U.S. laws that govern the normal, and legal, process of becoming an American Citizen.

    This president is now Completely Out Of Control. Instead of leading, and compromising, with congress, Obama has completely ESTRANGED congress, and effectively Shut Congress Down.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had essentially collaborated with Obama to virtually shut down the legislative branch and concentrate Political Power and Control in the hands of Obama, and steer the U.S. in the most Liberal Direction in more than 2 centuries of U.S. history.

  • Based on statements over the past 2 years, and Ms. Clinton's voting records from 6 years as a U.S. Senator, Hillary Clinton was found to be in alignment with more than 98% of Obama's positions on political matters.

    It was the primary reason why Ms. Clinton was Mr. Obama's #1 choice to become Secretary of State.

  • All of the laws that we have in place in the U.S. to grant citizenship via "legal" channels are being completed SHREDDED by this disaster that Obama has created on the Mexican Border.

    Our social welfare system is already straining under the immense weight of Obama's expansion of the welfare state, including the huge cost of the Obamacare, wealth-redistribution program.

    Taxes are already super high... on income, on real estate, on companies, on capital gains, on simply dialing your PHONE for crying out loud.

    Millions of new illegals demanding food stamps, Obamacare, K-12 education, etc. etc. will just accelerate our deficits and national debt even FASTER.

    Obama is RUINING our country. It's a government-spending, border-stampeding FREE FOR ALL.

    I'm not sure we can SURVIVE 2.5 more years of this.

    Worst president in American history. Hands down.

  • What a disgusting man.

    Maybe if he would stop crying and start leading, somebody would actually LIKE him.

    Bill Clinton was a leader. He WORKED with Congress. He NEVER would have said "I've got a pen and a phone", then completely cut Congress out with an illegal avalanche of Executive Orders.

    Worst president in US history. Hands Down.

  • We are all hearing, every day, that Obama is running amok issuing executive orders to essentially run the government... illegally, by not working with Congress as the law requires.

    To do that, Obama relies on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to effectively Block all attempts to hold Obama accountable, and otherwise shut down Congress with complete inaction on anything.

    So, Obama says "I've got a pen and a phone"... and starts running the government without any input from congress at all, and Reid prevents congress from doing anything about it.

    At the center of the IRS scandal is Obama appointee, Lois Lerner. The person responsible for INVESTIGATING her is Obama appointee, Eric Holder. Of course, Holder isn't doing an investigation because Obama appointed both of them.

    The Supreme Court has decided against Obama's illegal Executive Orders, but if Obama (or Hillary Clinton) are able to appoint one more supreme court justice, then there will be no "check or balance" in THAT branch of government EITHER.

    The only hope we have to get SOME measure of balance back in government before 2017, is to elect Republicans to the U.S. Senate.

    It won't stop Obama, but at LEAST it will make it harder for him to keep violating the law, and the constitution any more.

    Thanks.

  • Compiled by recent statements, plus her voting record as a U.S. Senator.

    Makes sense. Obama picked her to be his Secretary of State because she fully supported him.

  • It's very, very rare that Hillary Clinton voices opposition to any of Mr. Obama's Leftist policies.
    They are pretty much in Virtually Total Alignment.
    That's why he hired her as Secretary of State for so long.

  • Obama has completely checked-out. Israel hates him, and Russia is LAUGHING at him.

    Meanwhile, that POS is spending ALL his time at Fundraisers and Golf Courses. Disgusting!

    Congress might do something, but the problem is that almost every democratic Senator in the Senate is SUPPORTING this president, so Congress has completely SHUT DOWN.

    We have Never had things this bad in America. Illegals flooding over the board, Health Insurance premiums tripling for middle-class americans, Wars all over the world, Scandals and cover-ups at the IRS.

    This is HORRIBLE, people. We've got ONE SHOT at putting a brake on it... 3 months from now.

  • I can't remember a time in the past 60 years when I've been more frustrated about the lack of any leadership in America.

    The president is supposed to bring Congress together and lead progress. Instead, Congress has died and gone to heaven, and Obama is submerged in a sea of Golf Courses and Fundraisers.

    This is HORRIBLE. Worst president in history, hands down. And we've got to put up with another two and a half YEARS of this garbage!

    And what about Obama's hatred of US corporations doing "inversions"?

    In an inversion, a US company buys a foreign company, then moves it's country of domicile to the foreign country to avoid paying the Highest-In-The-World, corporate tax rate on it's foreign earnings if, and when, it "repatriates" those earnings back to the US.

    What the "media" doesn't mention, is that:

    1) The U.S. has the highest, corporate tax rates in the world and;

    2) Prior to his election(s) as president, Obama said he supported LOWERING that high, 35% rate.

    AFTER he was elected, Obama never mentioned such tax relief again (sound familiar?). Obama HATES corporations, just as much as he hates Capitalism.

    So now, Obama isn't talking about fixing the problem (eg; lowering tax rates so companies will WANT to do business in the US) but instead is talking about punishing those corporations ever MORE, with penalties assessed when they attempt to leave the U.S. and optimize their shareholders returns (if you own an IRA or a 401k, then YOU, Virginia, are a "shareholder" that bears the results of Obama's punishment).

    These are the "dark ages" of capitalism, people, and our record-low, post-recession, GDP growth fully reflects that fact.

  • Yes, you are "middle class", and yes, your Health Care premiums have probably doubled or Tripled over the past few years...

    ... and yes, Obama promised when he ran for president that he "wouldn't raise middle class taxes".

    Well, you're experiencing the Biggest Middle Class Tax Increase since Lynden Johnson was president... it's just that Obama has the health insurance companies nailing you for it instead of the IRS.

    Bottom line: If you're an Obama Supporter (eg: mostly the 47% of Americans who pay no federal Income Tax), then he is showering you with free or heavily subsidized Obamacare...

    ... but if you're a hard-working, Middle Class American... Then Yes, Virginia... You're Getting CLOBBERED.

  • Unbelievable.

    Instead of working to IMPEDE the flow of illegals over the border, he is negotiating to classify them as refugees and give them amnesty.

    That will only serve to VASTLY INCREASE the stampede of illegal alien children into the U.S.

    It will make the problem WORSE!!

    The disaster isn't the border crisis... the disaster is President Obama making it WORSE!

  • If you're like me, and you don't qualify for ObamaCare's subsidies, then you can expect to get CLOBBERED by the "Affordable (sic) Care Act".

    My Insurance premium almost TRIPLED, from $196 per month before the first provisions of Obamacare took effect in 2010, to $509 now.

    Needless to say, I can't afford it, and I'm now un-insured.

    Clearly, this is the worst law every enacted. It was done in the dead of night during Christmas holidays without a single GOP vote for a reason. Nobody even had time to READ it, as Nancy Pelosi so famously stated.

    Hopefully, the Supreme Court will uphold the decision of the DC Circuit, and we can start over from scratch with Healthcare reform.

  • Is THAT the kind of person we want running our country, and managing it's fiscal budget?

    She's almost 70 years old. Is she getting Senile?
