Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) had what colleagues called "a heated exchange" and what she described as "a conversation" with President Obama during a White House meeting Wednesday afternoon regarding the District's budget constraints as a result of the partial government shutdown.
Norton attended the meeting in the White House East Room with nearly 200 House Democrats and was one of a handful given the opportunity to ask the president a question. When she was called upon, Norton pressed Obama to support a GOP House-passed bill that would permit the District to use its locally raised tax funds to maintain operations until Dec. 15.
Irony: While President Obama refuses to consider any delay of ObamaCare, his liberal base is waking up to the fact that "free" health care is awfully expensive. And that they're the ones getting stuck with the bill. This would be funny if it weren't so hazardous to the country. The news is full of stories of people — many of them ObamaCare supporters — who are only now discovering what Democrats managed to impose on the country. A story in the San Francisco Chronicle, "Health Insurance Shoppers Suffer Sticker Shock"
notes how one resident, Shelly Ross, "was looking forward to" ObamaCare "because she was hoping to get a better deal." Instead, Ross discovered that "every plan is going to cost more than what I pay now."
The story features another San Francisco resident who learned that Kaiser was canceling his existing policy because it doesn't comply with ObamaCare's myriad insurance mandates. Kaiser's replacement policy that does comply will cost him $3,672 more a year.
Then there's Michael Yount, a resident of Charlotte, N.C., who told the Christian Science Monitor about how he and his wife face a threefold increase in their premiums — more than $8,900 a year. That's for a policy with the same deductible.
So Yount is planning to drop coverage altogether next year, showing how ObamaCare could easily make the nation's uninsured problem worse, not better.
Hahahaa......liberalism ALWAYS generates the opposite of its stated intention.....
This is straight out of the Saul Alinsky Rules For Radicals agitation handbook. And now this......
Obama Shuts down Beaches of Normandy
PARIS — Tourists travelling to Omaha Beach to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial will find it closed, a victim of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown.
The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday.
Wait until all the young, gullible Obots find out about that their "FREE" ObamaCare is going to cost them an arm and a leg. LOL.
BTW....Obama has quietly erased all references to FREE from the ObamaCare website. Memory-holed, if you will. Very 1984 Orwellian-like.....Conservatives read 1984 as a warning.....Liberals read it as a playbook.
