IF many US citizens are:
1. Having their existing health-insurance plans CANCELLED and replaced by “ObamaCare-compliant” plans that have HIGHER premiums, HIGHER deductibles, and narrower networks of doctors and hospitals
2. Being offered GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES (paid by you, the average taxpayer) so they will be able to AFFORD the HIGH premiums
HOW CAN IT EVER BE CALLED THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT??
Mr. Taranto discusses this in today’s Best of the Web:
Just be glad you don’t live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, which is mostly inhabited by the 1% that DeBlasio wants to tax into submission.
In today’s Best of The Web
James Taranto discusses how the “black establishment” disses black conservatives. You are only a “brother” if you are liberal.
One of our members (sorry can’t add link, as it’s behind our paywall) commented thusly in a post on how conservative parents teach their children. This is a real hoot!
What does Cat say?: “Meow, Meow”
What does Dog say?: “Bark, Bark”
What does Liberal say? “It’s Not Fair!”, “It’s Not Fair!”
Mr. James Taranto discusses the lies of the Left Here:
Today we celebrate the life of The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. He had a dream. Do you think that Dr. King’s dream is any closer to coming true (that people would be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin)? To hear OTL and his minions talk, any disagreement with OTL is based mostly on the color of his skin, and not on the sheer destructiveness of his policies. [actually, I don’t believe that OTL should claim that he is black. he is mixed-race, and none of his ancestors was a slave]
Just the fact that OTL was elected twice should reinforce the truth that racism in America is much less than it was in Dr. King’s time. Not according to OTL.
OTL* has Delivered 699 Speeches Using a Teleprompter Since Taking Office.
He has taken 13 vacations, for a total of 83 days.
Thanks to the Weekly Standard Blog for the above information.
What, exactly, has the occupant of the White House done in the last five years of his reign? Spent YOUR MONEY on vacations, spent hours with TV talk show hosts, and given hundreds of speeches. Does he even govern?????
*See post below for definition.
