...... As a result of the new health care law, the Obama Administration estimates more than 7 million seniors will lose their current Medicare Advantage plans, resulting in a massive migration of seniors to Medigap plans. AARP is the nation’s leading provider of Medigap plans and has a contract in which AARP financially gains for every additional Medigap enrollee. Based on low, mid and high-range estimates, AARP stands to financially gain, over and above the millions of dollars they currently receive from United, between $55 million and $166 million in 2014 alone as a result of new Medigap enrollees stemming from the health care law’s cuts to MA, which AARP strongly endorsed.

Shock Audio Unearthed: Obama Tells San Francisco, He Will Bankrupt the Coal Industry, this video has received 677,281 views. SP: It is no accident that energy prices have skyrocketed, including gas prices that have doubled since Obama took office. Listen to Obama's and Biden's own words on the coal industry. Obama has systematically cut off access to our domestic supplies of energy since he took office(see flow chart in the last article below). This administration has shut down permitted West Virginia coal mines, stopped the shale oil leasing on western federal lands, violated federal court orders by not issuing oil permits in the Gulf, and threatened to have the EPA regulate greenhouse gasses if Congress does not pass the legislation Obama wants. He is not against other nations drilling for oil, because he has been willing to spend our tax dollars to help Brazil drill for it. June 11, 2008 by Ed Morrissey: According to Barack Obama, high gas prices don’t really constitute a problem for Americans. He stated .......... the reason for our anger is the rapid increase in prices, not the prices themselves.


Carbon Rationing by Other Means - Reason.com - Plan A was to get Congress to adopt a massive cap-and-trade carbon rationing scheme. The idea was to impose mandatory cuts on U.S. emissions of the greenhouse gases, chiefly carbon dioxide, that are thought to be warming the atmosphere. Six months after President Barack Obama’s inauguration, a cap-and-trade bill managed to squeak through the House of Representatives—once it was larded up with billions in pork.  But attempts to get cap and trade through the Senate foundered last July when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) admitted he could not muster the votes. The midterm elections, in which the Republicans took control of the House and increased their membership in the Senate, ensured that Plan A was off the table.  Read more.........  

White House Stopping Domestic Oil and Gas Productions - Fuel Fix.com - The American Petroleum Institute is circulating a graphic that aims to highlight what the trade group says is a series of Obama administration decisions that are thwarting domestic oil and gas development. The document (see it below), which will be circulated on Capitol Hill, represents the latest attack by API, which has taken an increasingly adversarial role fighting the administration’s energy policies. With images ripped from the roadway, API argues that the administration “has taken specific steps to stop or delay the development of domestic oil and natural gas resources.” According to the trade group, those include: Read more.......  SP: Please read the entire article to review the extremely detailed time line information on how this administration has thwarted our ability to access America's energy resources since Obama took office.


Obama Doctrine - Real Clear Politics - The Obama Doctrine is simple: Proclaim a utopian policy, and then pray that most of the people who hear it are Neanderthals who will ignore it. Having said one thing, doing quite another is not only thereby okay, but also absolutely essential. Keep that paradox in mind, and almost everything the president does makes sense. In foreign policy, the president demands, in hated George Bush fashion, that Qaddafi leave, soars rhetorically about human rights, seeks an exalted United Nations resolution to protect Libyans, and institutes a no-fly zone — and then hopes that someone goes beyond the U.N. Read more....... SP: Why won't the liberal lap dog media tell us the truth about the "slight of hand" Obama Doctrine? Obama uses them as a megaphone to broadcast a set of lies to the public, then when the cameras/microphones are gone, he turns right around and does the opposite. Any modicum of independence or fairness that may have existed in the media disappeared long ago, and they should be know for what they really are, the media arm of the Democratic Party.
