Welcome to Obamaland: Food Stamp Recipients Outnumber Women Who Work Full-Time, Barack Obama … The Food Stamp President

Welcome to Barack Obama’s ‘Hope & Change’… welfare instead of jobs.

What happened to the country I grew up in, the Food Stamp edition. Since 1969 there has been a 1,552% increase in food stamp recipients. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! There were only 2,878,000 people on food stamps in 1969 as compared to the current 44,758,000. That is simply astonishing and unsustainable. The number of food stamp recipients has increased so much, that for 2012, the number of people participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States.

Check out in the chart below the vertical red line increase of food stamp recipients since Obama took office in 2009. They don’t call Barack Obama the Food Stamp president for nothing. His moniker has been well earned. Also check out on the same chart the stagnate blue line of woman who work full time under Obama’s administration. This is Obamanomics and the real war on woman. Obama has been nothing more than an EPIC FAILURE!!! America, we better right this ship before it is too late.

FOOD STAMP BENEFICIARIES AND FULL-TIME FEMALE WORKERS-CHART 1

CNS News:

People participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012, according to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau.

In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.

For each woman who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, there was slightly more than 1 other person collecting food stamps.

In 2013, the average number of people on food stamps increased to 47,636,000. The Census Bureau will not publish its report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage for 2013, which includes the data on women working full-time, until September.

The Department of Agriculture’s website lists the annual average number of food stamps participants going back to 1969. That year, there were only 2,878,000 people on food stamps. Since then, food stamps participants have increased by 44,758,000—or about 1,552 percent.

Protein Wisdom opines on some not so good coincidences between the Carter and Obama presidencies. Why exactly did you reelect this disaster?

For those into trivia, those three years (and 2013 is likely to join them as the fourth) took place under the Carter and Obama Administrations.

As did the ruthless arrogance of Muslim extremists and Communist Russians.

Again, probably just a coincidence — and even if it’s not, Obama’s reelection proves that women and minorities love them some other people’s shit, and don’t much care if that turns them, effectively, into slaves of the state.  Because they’ve been empowered by “self-esteem,” which allows them to justify and rationalize away their own near-permanent state of being.

Unbelievable, One More Glitch for the Road: Even Kathleen Sebelius’ Resignation Speech as HHS Secretary is Botched … “Unfortunately, a Page is Missing”

YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP …

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius managed to put as much preparation and management into her resignation speech as she did her handling of Obamacare. As Sebelius was reading her heart-felt prepared, written speech a funny thing happened, a page was missing. Good grief. How could any one be such a screw up and so unprepared? Maybe, her speech writers just didn’t have it in them to spew more lies that Obamacare is good for America. It was a fitting send off for Sebelius, to have one more glitch for the road. It was priceless as Sebelius was flanked by Barack Obama and her supposed to be replacement, if Senate approved, OMB Director Sylvia Burwell.

Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius officially announced her resignation Friday, but just like the glitches that plagued the federal website for Obamacare – healthcare.gov – which she was responsible for, Sebelius experienced a glitch of her own when the last page of her speech went missing.

Photo of the day … One more glitch from Kathleen Sebelius as Obama looks on and can be seen to nudge her to go on and don’t make me look like more of an idiot.

House Oversight Committee Holds ex-IRS Official Lois Lerner in Contempt … Full House Vote to Follow

LOIS LERNER HELD IN CONTEMPT …

The House Oversight Committee voted 21-12 yesterday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for her refusal to answer questions regarding her role in the targeting of non-profit Conservative and Tea Party groups. The vote was along party lines. Democrats will rue the day that they voted in favor of defending Lois Lerner and the IRS controversy of specifically and intentionally targeting conservative groups. A note to Democrats voters, next time it could be you. As reported at Mediaite, Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said that they “need Ms. Lerner’s testimony to complete our oversight work and bring truth to the American people,” and they took the vote just a day after the House Ways and Means Committee sent a letter to the Justice Department recommending they consider criminal charges for Lerner. Don’t hold your breathe that Eric Holder will do anything. Lerner evoked her 5th Amendment Rights, not once, but twice … but not before she made a statement before the committee stating her innocence.

“I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations and I have not provided false information to this or any other Congressional committee.”

A House panel voted along party lines to hold ex-IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress on Thursday, paving the way for a full House vote as Republicans turn up the heat on the woman at the center of the controversy over tax-exempt tea party groups.

If approved by the full House as expected, it would be one of about a dozen congressional contempt votes in the past 35 years. Republicans voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over the Fast and Furious matter in 2012.

The House Oversight Committee voted 21-12 along in a straight party line vote to hold Lerner in contempt for refusing to answer questions about her role in the IRS tea party scandal that erupted last May. The full House is expected to follow suit in the coming weeks. Democrats compared the process to the 1950s when Sen. Joe McCarthy directed a series of contempt votes on Americans who refused questioning about what he called their “un-American” activities.

“We need Ms. Lerner’s testimony to complete our [investigation],” said Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). “Taxpayers don’t get to plead the Fifth [Amendment] and escape all accountability when the IRS audits them. … It would irresponsible for the committee not to vigorously pursue her testimony.”

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius OUT, Sebelius To Resign … Obamacare and Democrats Gets Their Fall Girl for 2014 Elections

This comes about 5 years too late …

USA Today is reporting that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will resign today. Sebelius, who oversaw Obamacare and its disastrous rollout, is out as she has handed in her papers. I think we all knew the handwriting was on the wall for her ousting when Obama had the nerve to declare victory for the Obamacare enrollment and never once thanked Sebelius, who was in the audience. Of course the Rose Garden ‘Mission Accomplished’ pep rally was done on April Fool’s Day, you can draw your own conclusions. Hmm, but I thought it was only the people that she did not work for who were asking her to resign? After months of denials that should would resign, she has. The announcement is to be made at 11 am on Friday. Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell to expected to be nominated by Barack Obama to replace Sebelius.

Obama_Sebelius

After a difficult five years shepherding President Obama’s signature health care law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has tendered her resignation, according to two senior administration officials.

Obama accepted the resignation this week and intends to announce that he will nominate Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell to replace Sebelius.

He will make the formal announcement at 11 a.m. Friday at the White House, according to officials, who asked not to be identified so as not to pre-empt the president.

The purge begins to try and save Democrats for the 2014 midterm elections. The NY Times reports, Sebelius Resigns After Troubles Over Health Site. I guess Barack Obama and Democrats think that the American people will just forget the damage Sebelius, Obama and fellow Democrats has done to healthcare and just move on. Out of sight, out of mind.

The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, convince a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.

Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.

EXIT QUESTION: Are you covered under Obamacare if you are thrown under the bus?

AG Eric Holder Plays the Race Card at Sharpton’s National Action Network Conference About How Congress Treated Him

What a shock, Attorney General plays the victim and the race card …

While speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder complained about how he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, namely Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), played the race card, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Holder stated that his and Barack Obama’s treatment by Congress has been unprecedented to his Al Sharpton crowd. Hmm, what ever could he be implying? Really Holder, call the “wahmbulance”. Holder may want to do some Google searches on how past GOP presidents were treated, he may learn something. But, liberals are always the victim and in Holder’s case, throw a little racism on the fire to continue the divide and conquer strategy as the Obama administrations fails America.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama.

“The last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms even in the face, even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity,” Holder said. “If you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me. You look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee — has nothing to do with me, forget that. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”

Holder goes off script and plays the victim during a speech he gave Wednesday to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. 

Holder vs. Gohmert, “Don’t Go There”

Attorney General Eric Holder lashed out a bit at Louis Gohmert yesterday during a contentious exchange, snapping, “You don’t want to go there, buddy.” Holder’s clearly steamed about the back-and-forth, and brought it up during a speech he gave Wednesday to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The Justice Department posted the transcript of Holder’s remarks as prepared for delivery, but Holder went off-script a bit to take a shot at the Republican congressman.

In the end, Eric Holder would have been fired under any other administration for the poor job that he has done. Holder has provided no justice in ‘Fast & Furious’, ‘Benghazi’ or the IRS scandal of targeting Conservative and Tea Party groups. However, when his job is to obstruct and protect Barack Obama’s bacon from impeachment and his connection to these scandals, Holder is doing a fantastic job and thus the reason why he is still employed. Maybe the reason why, as Holder says, “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” is because we have never had such a corrupt and imperial administration?

The Obama Administration & Democrats Playing Politics with Obamacare Again … Cuts to Medicare Advantage A No Go During an Election Year

Democrats once again playing politics with healthcare … Just changing the law as they see fit to benefit themselves.

Barack Obama previously said that Obamacare was a done deal and here to stay. However, one could say that it is Obama and Democrats that have done more to show that Obamacare is “unsettled” science and a disaster. Team Obama has done everything imaginable to delay the pain to Americans until after the 2014 midterm and even the 2016 elections so not to adversely affect Democrats. Add cuts to Medicare Advantage to the long list of delays as well. As reported at The Hill, the Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats. It’s a bit premature Barack to call Obamacare a done deal when you have delayed most of it so the American people don’t feel the affects until it is too late.

Obama_misleader

The Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats.

The cuts would have reduced benefits that seniors receive from health plans in the program, which is intended as an alternative to Medicare.

Under cuts planned by the administration, insurers offering the plans were to see their federal payments reduced by 1.9 percent, which likely would have necessitated cuts for customers.

Instead, the administration said the federal payments to insurers will increase next year by .40 percent.

The healthcare law included $200 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage over 10 years, in part to pay for ObamaCare.

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) on Monday said changes in the healthcare market meant it did not need to make those cuts to Medicare Advantage this year.

New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, who signed a February 14 letter called on the Obama administration to essentially hold Medicare Advantage rates steady, said in a statement Monday that he was glad the Obama administration heeded their call. Code for, SOS for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

 One of the senators who signed that letter, New York Democrat Chuck Schumer, said in a statement Monday that he was glad the Obama administration heeded their call.

“In many parts of the country, including New York, Medicare Advantage works very well,” Schumer said.

Just curious, Democrats certainly had no problem voting for these cuts in lock-step with Barack Obama in passing Obamacare along a 100% partisan vote and ramming this down the throats of Americans. So, why suddenly the change? It could not possibly be because the cuts in the popular program, Medicare Advantage, would hurt Democrats at the voting booths, could it? No, of course not.

Jeb Bush Says He Will Make a Decision of Presidential Run by End of Year and Illegal Immigrants Who Come to US in an “Act of Love” Deserve to Get Amnesty

To borrow Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug slogan of the 1980′s and apply it to Jeb Bush’s thoughts on running for president … “JUST SAY NO”!!!

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run by the end of the year. Oh boy, I can’t wait. Let me just say that if the GOP wants to lose another election with a candidate along the lines of John McCain and Mitt Romney, then by all means have the elitist, establishment Republican party get behind Jeb. Let alone, we do not need another Bush as president. Just like we do not need another Clinton. It would appear that Instapundit and I agree! I think out of the 300 million people in the United States we can elect a president whose last name does not begin with Bush or Clinton.

Why do we not need a RINO like Jeb Bush as a GOP candidate? We need to look no further than his statement on Sunday that illegal immigrants who come to the United States as an “act out of love” for their families deserve to be treated differently than others who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. This is obviously code for, they deserve amnesty. I wonder if Jeb feels the same if an individual robs a bank, store or someone’s home out of love for their family or sells drugs is also the same?

A note to Jeb Bush … ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!! This is exactly the reason why so many have lost faith in establishment, limousine Republicans.

Washington Post:

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.

Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.

“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.

“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he added. “But the way I look at this — and I’m going to say this, and it’ll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”

So Jeb, why have any immigration policy if you think that the United States is just one big welfare state meant to help others in other countries, rather than its own citizens? Jeb Bush does realize that an immigration policy is meant to protect the survival of a country by allowing individuals with talent and skills to strengthen a country, not to let anyone one in who is going to be nothing more than a burden on society.

WOW, Radio Hosts Opie and Anthony Let Loose on Obamacare After They Both Lose Their Health Care Plans, “Because They Can’t F*cking Grasp that Obama Lied to the American People When He Said You Can Keep Your Insurance.”

WOW, JUST WOW!!!

Radio Hosts Opie and Anthony let loose on Obamacare and what Democrats and Barack Obama did to the American people. Actually they said publicly, what many people wish they could say and be heard and what people say to their self every day regarding this train-wreck called Obamacare. This is a must listen to rant by Opie and Anthony, but just be careful there is a lot of adult language. This is classic Opie and Anthony and the amazing part about this rant from the two shock jocks is that they are 100% correct.

Obama_Lie of the Year

“I don’t know why we’re not having a revolution at this point,” Hughes said.

“We should!” Anthony Cumia, the show’s co-host, replied.

Cumia also sarcastically called Hughes out for pushing lies being created by the Republican Party.

“You’re lying though, because this didn’t happen to anybody,” he joked.

The notion caused Hughes to launch into a fiery tirade on how “millions” of people are being called liars for pointing out that Obamacare has forced them to lose their health insurance. So why would they all be lying?

“Because they can’t f***ing grasp that Obama lied to the American people when he said you can keep your insurance,” Cumia answered.

Cumia also blasted people who are always shouting for the wealthy to pay their “fair share,” saying they have “no f***ing clue” how much people in higher income brackets are actually paying.

“Let me come over and take over half of your money and see how you feel about it,” he added.

WARNING: VERY STRONG, STRONG LANGUAGE, INCLUDING F-BOMB

The Washington Free Beacon:

The hosts of popular Sirius/XM radio show ‘The Opie and Anthony Show’ exploded in frustration Thursday morning over the cancellation of their health plans under Obamacare.

“I was fighting an imaginary person in my apartment,” exclaimed co-host Greg “Opie” Hughes when describing his frustration with filling out the voluminous paperwork that accompanied the cancellation of his previous health plan.

“Finally, after all these years, I had perfect health insurance and now I have to re-do the whole thing, it’s ridiculous!” Hughes exclaimed.

Another Shooting at Fort Hood … 4 Dead Including Gunman … Shooter ID’d as 34 Year Old Fort Hood Soldier Ivan Lopez

If we learn nothing from history, be are destined to repeat it …

Sadly, yesterday we were witness to another shooting at Fort Hood where three people were killed and 16 individuals injured before the gunman killed himself. The shooter was identified as 34 year old Fort Hood Army specialist Ivan Lopez. According to Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the shooter served in Iraq in 2011 and was being treated for “behavioral health and mental health” issues. Lopez  had been undergoing an assessment to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder.

Have we learned nothing from the 2009 Fort Hood shooting where  Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 12 soldiers?

VIDEO – CNN

There was a shooting on Fort Hood on Wednesday afternoon.

Three people are dead along with the shooter, and 16 others were injured. All were active duty military.

Thirty-four-year-old Fort Hood soldier Ivan Lopez was identified as the shooter. General Milley said that the shooter was being treated for mental issues, but not yet diagnosed with PTSD. The shooter is married with family in the local area, and he just arrived at Fort Hood in February.

Lopez is said to have been the only gunman.

Gen Milley believes the shooting started when he opened fire in a building. He then left the building, got into his vehicle, and fired. He then got out of his vehicle again and went into another building.  After entering the second building, he became face-to-face with an officer and that is when he shot himself.

UPDATE I: Many many more updates at the Jawa Report and the PJ Tatler.

UPDATE II: Press Conference (VIDEO)

The suspect, a soldier who had served in Iraq, “had behavioral health and mental health” issues, Milley told reporters late Wednesday.

The general said there was no known motive for the shooting.

“There is no indication that this incident is related to terrorism, although we are not ruling anything out,” he said.

The suspected shooter was wearing combat fatigues, said a U.S. official briefed on the shooting. He was armed with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun that he purchased recently, said Milley.

Mission Accomplished? White House & Jay Carney Gloat About Enrollment Numbers & Blasts Republicans During Snark-filled Daily WH Presser

WHAT A SICK APRIL FOOLS JOKE … PLEASE TELL ME AMERICA YOU ARE NOT THAT IGNORANT …

Barack Obama White House spokesperson Jay Carney took to the microphone yesterday to brag about the notion that over 7.1 million people have enrolled in Obamacare.  After all this time of the White House and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refusing to provide any numbers for enrollment in Obamacare, suddenly they come up with precise number like 7.041 million. HMM, REALLY? A contentious and defiant Carney delivered a prepared statement to the press full of snark, lies and exaggerations on the “mission accomplished” of Obamacare.

“Despite several lost weeks out of the gate because of problems with the website, 7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance through these marketplaces,” the president said.

The 7.1 million figure was more than the 7.041 million announced by press secretary Jay Carney just hours earlier.

The administration is allowing consumers who were unable to complete their applications to continue the process beyond Monday. Moreover, the federal government is still collecting data from states who run their own states.

Obama heralded the achievement as “a big step forward.”

REALLY AMERICA? SORRY, BUT THE OBAMA WH IS INCAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH AS THEY DOUBLE DOWN ON THE LIE.

Next thing you know, Carney, Obama, Sebelius, Pelosi et al will be telling you that you can keep your healthcare insurance if you like it, that you can keep your doctor if you like it, you can keep the hospital you go to if you like it, the IRS is not targeting the Tea Party, the NSA is not listening to your phone calls or reading your emails without a warrant, Benghazi was just about a tape and Eric Holder was not operating a gun-running operation in Mexico. WAKE THE HELL UP FOLKS AND STOP BEING SHEEPLE!!!

Sorry for my skepticism, but I deal in numbers. I would love to get my hands on this data and do some real analysis like, how many enrollment accounts are duplicates? Individuals have to create numerous accounts in the beginning because of the disastrous non-functioning Heathcare.fail site. How many individuals have actually paid their premiums? How many individuals enrolled in Obamacare lost the insurance that they liked because of Obamacare and are now paying higher premiums and have larger deductibles? Sorry, but you certainly cannot count it as a net gain if your program caused some one to lose something and then you compelled them to buy your product. Well, maybe an imperialist president would.

The Lonely Conservative has more of the “intended ” consequences of Obamacare as the CBO is stating that Obamacare will cause workers to work few hours, to the equivalent of 2 million jobs. Yeah, let’s see if Democrats run on Obamacare in this years midterm elections.
