Americans Completely Distrust Their Government … 19% Say They Trust the Government Always or Most of the Time
DOES ANYONE WONDER WHY ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATES ARE DOING SO WELL?
According to a recent Pew Center poll, just 19% say they can trust the government always or most of the time, among the lowest levels in the past half-century. I would actually question who those 19% are that think they can trust the government that much in this day and age. What is sad and has become a commonplace view by many Americans is that most Americans fell that elected officials put their own ambitions and power ahead of the country. Currently, Republicans are nearly three times as likely as Democrats (12%) to say they are angry with the government. Of course that is the case because Democrats follow Obama in lockstep and the Republican voters are upset that they have a bunch of gutless elected House and Senate members who made promises to get elected and once in power have done nothing but make excuses.
A year ahead of the presidential election, the American public is deeply cynical about government, politics and the nation’s elected leaders in a way that has become quite familiar.
Currently, just 19% say they can trust the government always or most of the time, among the lowest levels in the past half-century. Only 20% would describe government programs as being well-run. And elected officials are held in such low regard that 55% of the public says “ordinary Americans” would do a better job of solving national problems.
Currently, 22% say they are “angry” at the federal government; 57% are “frustrated,” and 18% say they are “basically content.” These sentiments have changed little over the past year, but two years ago – during the partial government shutdown – a record 30% expressed anger at government.
The share of Republicans and Republican leaners saying they are angry with the government is not as high as in October 2013 (32% now, 38% then). Nonetheless, Republicans are nearly three times as likely as Democrats (12%) to say they are angry with the government. And among politically engaged Republicans and Democrats – those who vote frequently and follow politics on a regular basis – the gap is nearly four-to-one (42% to 11%).
Among both Democrats and Republicans, large majorities say they can seldom, if ever, trust the federal government (89% of Republicans, 72% of Democrats). While trust in government among Republicans has varied widely depending on whether a Republican or Democrat is in the White House, Democrats’ views have shown far less change.
Remember America, this is your government and you elected them. Vote them out if you are so dissatisfied. Obviously, a Democrat or Republican is not going to vote for the other parties candidate, but you can toss the establishment candidates of both parties out on their collective ears in the primaries.
Precedent Set that Government is Above the Law: Lois Lerner Skates on IRS Targeting Scandal as Obama Administration Finds Lerner Has Done Nothing Wrong
IMAGINE THAT, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION INVESTIGATES ITSELF AND FINDS IT HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG …
WTF, a terrible precedent has been set that states the government is above the law and can do anything against We the People … The officials in Washington constantly talk about how our immigration system in America is broken. WRONG, WASHINGTON, DC AND OUR GOVERNMENT IS BROKEN. In news that many may not have heard about as the liberal MSM, with Fox News in tow decided to over report on Hurricane Patricia and how it was supposed to be the hurricanes to end all hurricanes and destroy the world. The Barack Obama Justice Department has declined to file charges against IRS enforcer Lois Lerner, who purposely and willfully targeted Conservative and Tea Party groups for political purposes in an attempt to silence them. ARE YOU KIDDING? Lois Lerner should be in leg irons and in federal prison for what she did in an abuse of power and her IRS office. How can this be that an individual can break the law, get caught red-handed, stonewall and cover-up an investigation, but because you did it for the political party that is in power, you are not prosecuted for your crimes? UNREAL. This is an example of a US federal government gone rouge under the decisive and deceitful presidency of Barack Obama. America should have zero confidence any more that the federal government can be held accountable to We the People. Thanks to Barack Obama and his non-transparent presidency and this terrible precedent, we no longer have a government of, by and for the people but a government that is above the law.
There may have never been a greater abuse of power and cover up, ever.
The Law: The Justice Department declined to file charges against IRS enforcer Lois Lerner, who singled out Tea Party groups for scrutiny on political grounds. With no accountability, it’s now open season on dissidents.
Is there anyone out there subject to an Internal Revenue Service audit or a multiyear delay in approval for tax-exempt status who won’t be concerned that the process is politically rigged against them?
That’s the message the Justice Department sent when, in a classic Friday night news dump, it decided to not file charges against IRS tax-exempt groups chief Lois Lerner. In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, Justice said that while it found “mismanagement, poor judgment and inertia,” there was no case for a criminal prosecution.
This is absurd. Lerner was caught red-handed targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups, wrote partisan emails to prove it, then engaged in a massive cover-up effort — with a suspiciously crashed server, an oddly missing BlackBerry and plenty of excuses.
She evaded even more accountability by shielding herself with the Fifth Amendment in Congress. The consequences to her have been . .. retirement on a full pension with all her bonuses to a multimillion-dollar mansion in the deep D.C. suburbs.
As for her victims — and they were many — there is no justice. Now everyone, no matter what their political leanings, will wonder if they too are a political target by an out-of-control agency protected by the Justice Department.
Because that’s the real consequence of this failure to hold Lerner accountable: A precedent has been set.
IRS officials now know they can go after any political opponent they want, ruin them any way they wish, swing an election — as occurred with Lerner’s actions — and get away with it.
No wonder confidence in government has plunged. Last June, Gallup conducted a survey on confidence in public institutions and found it “below historic norms” and with confidence in justice dropping to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office. Just 23% of the public had high or some confidence in a justice system that could play fairly; 34% had little or no confidence
To liberals who think this is a laughing matter and are giggling in some childish manner that they got away with something. I have two words, YOU’RE NEXT. No one should have any issues if there is a Republican president in office and they use the IRS to attack the LEFT. In fact, I insist that they do. Let’s see you guys twist in the wind and see what it feels like. And I do not want to hear the MSM condemn any future GOP administration for using the IRS has a goon squad to attack liberals. You certainly can’t call foul, you had your chance and failed to do so.
SPEECHLESS: Its Now Illegal to Barbeque in Florida … UNREAL, Pinellas County, Florida Man Cited for Allowing Smoke from Grill to Go on Neighbor’s Property
WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY … ITS NOW ILLEGAL TO GRILL IN AMERICA!!!
This country is truly lost its way when it is the governments business and its against the law to grill in your back yard on your own private property. WATCH the VIDEO below and you will be stunned that a Florida government official actually had the audacity to cite a resident for get this, allowing the smoke from his grill as he was barbequing to go onto his neighbors property. Yes, you read that correctly. It is actually illegal and a stupid Pinellas County, Florida code to allow the smoke from your grill to waft into the wind and flow over to your neighbors property. WTF!!! One would think that this was an episode of ‘Candid Camera’ or ‘Punked,’ but sadly this was not the case. The county official actually said with a straight face, “You’re allowed to have it smell on your property. So that doesn’t count but when I’m on the street that’s when it counts.”
The official says: ‘I’m only here because of the odour, I’m only here because of the smoke.’
The jobsworth then says he has taken pictures of the barbecue smoke: ‘I can smell it, I can smell it right now, but I’m on your property.
‘You’re allowed to have it smell on your property. So that doesn’t count but when I’m on the street that’s when it counts.’
I am starting a new movement, BLACK BARBEQUERS MATTER, sarcasm intended. Although this is not racism that has caused this ridiculous situation, it is the result of an over-intrusive, out of control government that thinks they have the right to pass BS ordinances like this and individuals in this country that are just nothing more than a pain in the ass that will find a reason to bitch, moan and complain about anything. What’s the matter, wasn’t there a 6 year old child selling lemonade from their driveway available to harass?
‘I’m only here because of the odor, I’m only here because of the smoke,’ the official says the clip.
The resident tells the official that it’s only a barbecue and that most residents in the street ‘cook out’.
The official alludes to the fact one of the man’s neighbors had complained about the smell he was producing.
Then the official says: ‘Frankly, today, I can smell it, I can smell it again right now, but I’m on your property.
‘You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.’
The official finishes up by saying that the barbecue smoke, by a rule in force in Pinellas County, cannot cross their property line, Opposing Views reported.
The Pinellas County website states in its environmental section: ‘Commercial barbecue cookers are not exempt from causing a nuisance odor. If a sufficient number of complaints, representing different households, are reported and an Inspector witnesses the problem, they can issue a Warning Letter.’
Our Founding Fathers were unavailable for comment.
JUDICIAL WATCH SAYS THAT THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE USED ORGANIZATIONS OWN DONOR LISTS TO TARGET AUDITS …
Sorry, but the IRS needs to be disbanded and a new way of taxation needs to be devised. Never again should any US citizen ever be the target of such viscous tyranny. Juridical Watch is saying that the IRS used donor lists to target unwarranted audits of those opposed to Barack Obama and his policies. Imagine that. The Founding Fathers never intended for any such government agency to ever have this kind f power and fear over its citizens. We fought a Revolutionary War to rid ourselves from tyranny.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fittonsaid .
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show the Internal Revenue Service used donor lists from conservative tax-exempt organizations to determine who it would target for audits.
The IRS produced the documents in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the group.
“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
A letter dated September 28, 2010, then-Democrat Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) informs then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman: “ I request that you and your agency survey major 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations …” In reply, in a letter dated February 17, 2011, Shulman writes: “In the work plan of the Exempt Organizations Division, we announced that beginning in FY2011, we are increasing our focus on section 501(c)(4), (5) and (6) organizations.”
In 2010, after receiving Baucus’s letter, the IRS considered the issue of auditing donors to 501(c)(4) organizations, alleging that a 35 percent gift tax would be due on donations in excess of $13,000. The documents show that the IRS wanted to cross-check donor lists from 501(c)(4) organizations against gift tax filings and commence audits against taxpayers based on this information.
A gift tax on contributions to 501(c)(4)’s was considered by most to be a dead letter since the IRS had never enforced the rule after the Supreme Court ruled that such taxes violated the First Amendment. The documents show that the IRS had not enforced the gift tax since 1982.
But then, in February 2011, at least five donors of an unnamed organization were audited.
Any for any of you who think the Obama White House and most likely Obama himself was not directly behind this IRS scandal of targeting Obama’s conservative enemies, I bet you believe you can keep your doctor, hospital and healthcare plan under Obamacare too.
KING Barack Obama Spoke at Civic Group in Cleveland, OH and Called for Mandatory Voting … Isn’t It a Right to Vote and a State? Judge Andrew Napolitano Rips the Constitutional Scholar Obama
MANDATORY VOTING … IF YOU LIKE THE PERSON YOU VOTED FOR YOU CAN KEEP VOTING FOR THEM … YEAH, WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT WORKED OUT WITH MANDATORY HEALTH CARE, DON’T WE?
Is Barack Obama an authoritarian fascist? One would think so with his recent comments where he floated the idea that voting should be mandatory in the United States. That is kind of comical coming from the man who could not find his way to vote as a state or federal Senator. Obama wants to making voting mandatory. What else id a wannabe King to do whose party did not show up in the last election, but make people vote. Obama calls it transformative, others would call it authoritarian. Exactly what part about the right to vote being a right doesn’t Obama understand? The right to vote is a form of free speech and you have both the right to vote or the right not to. But not with this fascist. But Obama does not have the best interest of America in mind when it comes to voting in the US, he would want people to be forced to vote who either, had no clue as to who or what was on the ballot or individuals who did not wish to volunteer in the process. Of course Obama is against voter ID so that one can prove they are who they are to vote.
President Obama, whose party was trounced in last year’s midterm election due in part to poor turnout among Democrats, endorsed the idea of mandatory voting Wednesday.
“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”
Mr. Obama raised the subject during a discussion of curbing the influence of campaign donations in U.S. elections. The president said he had never discussed the idea publicly before, but said Australia and some other countries have compulsory voting.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Judge Andrew Napolitano blasted President Barack. As Judge Napolitano said to Cavuto, “What kind of a right is this, the right to vote, if you don’t have the right to decide whether or not to exercise the right?” Napolitano went on to say, “the government can’t force you to stand up and say yes, it can’t force you to stand up and make a decision.” Napolitano further opined, “many people vote by not voting where they are basically saying, a pox on both your houses.”
However, Judge Andrew Napolitano reserved his best comment for last for Obama when he stated, “here is the boat that the president also misses. [...] In America there is no national federal election, there are 50 state elections. The states set the terms for elections. He couldn’t have the Congress do this even if he wanted to because that is an area reserved to the States. How could that Constitutional scholar have forgotten that?”
“No, I’m not happy with it at all,” Napolitano responded. “Look, voting is speech. It’s individual voters speaking to the government in the privacy of a voting booth. You have the right to free speech. The corollary to free speech is you have the right to remain silent. The government cannot force speech, the government cannot force voting.”
“What kind of a right is this, the right to vote, if you don’t have the right to decide whether or not to exercise the right?” he posed. “This is, forgive me, a totalitarian impulse, that he would march people into the voting booth …”
Judge Andrew Napolitano Rips Obama a new one on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,”
AMERICANS NAME GOVERNMENT THE #1 PROBLEM FACING THE UNITED STATES …
Americans are fed up with the increasing and oppressive government. In a recent Gallup poll, Americans named the government as the biggest problem facing the United States. For the past 4 months, the government has been named the biggest problem facing “We the People”. They are correct. Even with such issues as terrorism, healthcare, race relations and immigration are extremely important problems facing Americans, the government, the economy and unemployment have been at the top of the list for the past year. In the end, it is our lawless government that refuses to follow the US Constitution, our government that fails to adequately deal with border security, our government that makes the Middle East worse, our government that continually regulates us in a way that our Founding Fathers never intended and our government that spies on us and treats law-abiding, legal US citizens as a greater threat than terrorists.
Americans have grown weary of a government that could care less about the people and only about their power. Every day we are witness to a Democrat president who shreds the Constitution and a gutless Republican Congress who is too cowardice to defend it.
The government is America’s most important problem, according to a new poll.
In a Gallup poll released Thursday, 18 percent of Americans named government as the biggest problem facing the U.S.
The economy trailed closely behind as an important problem with 11 percent, followed by “unemployment/jobs” at 10 percent.
The poll shows a slight increase in those who are dissatisfied with government. In February, 17 percent answered that the government is the most important problem. Americans also seem to be optimistic about the economy. Last month, 16 percent of Americans said that the economy was the most important problem — nearly tying with government. That figure is now down 5 percentage points.
Americans’ confidence in all three branches of government is at or near record lows, according to a major survey that has measured attitudes on the subject for 40 years.
The 2014 General Social Survey finds only 23 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the Supreme Court, 11 percent in the executive branch and 5 percent in Congress. By contrast, half have a great deal of confidence in the military.
As Ronald Reagen profoundly stated so many years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.”
Ronald Reagan also said so many years ago, “We are a nation that has a government. Our government has no power except for that granted by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.” WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
Barack Hussain Obama, The Most Uninformed President Ever …. Claims He Learned of Hillary Clinton Used a Private, Nongovernment Email Account as Secretary of State Through News Reports
SORRY OBAMA, YOU CAN ONLY USE THAT SAME EXCUSE 7 TIMES, NOT 8 …
From the most transparent presidency ever comes yet another scandal, this time its Hillary email-gate. Barack Obama was asked by Bill Plant of CBS News in a sit down interview when was the first time he learned that Hillary Clinton was using an email system outside the US government for official business while she was Secretary of State? Obama’s response, more BS … “Ah, the sane time everybody else learned it through news reports“. Seriously Mr. Obama, is that your final answer? Let me just say this … YOU ARE A LIAR! We are supposed to believe that Barack Obama, the most tech savvy president ever, never received an email from Hillary Clinton from her private email account for official business? REALLY? No one believes that. You mean the tech savvy Obama doesn’t know that a government account ends in .gov? But then again, the Obama presidency is the most transparent ever, because the Liar is Chief says so. Are we really supposed to believe that if there was no news outlets, Obama would know nothing?
President Barack Obama said it was through news reports that he first learned that Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private, nongovernment email account while serving as his secretary of state.
In an interview Saturday with CBS News, Obama said he’s glad that Clinton has instructed that those emails about official business be disclosed. He also maintained that his administration remains the most transparent ever.
Clinton has drawn criticism for using a private server during the four years she was the nation’s top diplomat. Her sidestepping official government email also raises questions about whether all pertinent messages have been preserved as well as turned over for congressional investigations and lawsuits.
President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.
CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.
“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.
Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.
“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”
Barack Obama is either the biggest and most pathetic liar we have ever had the misfortune as having as President of the United States or he is the stupidest, most uniformed and laziest one. Take your pick America. Barack Obama is telling us once again that he just learned about the latest scandal during his presidency regarding Hillary Clinton using private email account and server from the media. Sound familiar, as Yogi Berra would say, “its like deja vu all over again”. Didn’t Obama use this same lame excuse and lie for the following scandals:
- WH spox Carney says that President Obama only found out about the VA scandal recently from news reports. (VIDEO) But he of course was lying, he knew since 2008.
- Obama said that he first learned about IRS-gate from the the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.
- Obama and his surrogates have claimed he learned of several other scandals from broadcast or print news stories also include Operation Fast and Furious.
- Obama also said he only learned in the news the DOJ’s seizure of two months of Associated Press phone records.
- NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
- HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
- Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation
NOW THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WANTS TO RAISE TAXES THRU EXECUTIVE ACTION …
THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT STRIKES AGAIN … When does it stop with this president? Now through his mouth piece White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, he confirmed that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action. When does it stop with this law-breaking President? Does Barack Obama care that there is a US Constitution, or is he just hell-bent to do as much damage as he possibly can before he leaves office as a bunch of gutless Republicans sit back and do nothing. How sad is it that America has become a country with a Democrat president who shreds the Constitution and Republican Congress who is too afraid to defend it.
America, just because some one uses the world “Middle class” does not mean that you are allowed to shred the Constitution. This is the Obama BS and his way to get low information folks on his side, say middle class and that makes it perfectly okay that he could give a lick of the founding documents of this country.
Go to the 1:10:45 mark of the VIDEO for the tax raising BS
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.
“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.
“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.
Barack Obama to Ban AR-15 Bullets By Executive Action … Attempts a Back-Door Gun Ban & Assault on 2nd Amendment
SHOCKER, OBAMA GOING BACK ON PROMISE NOT TO TAKE GUNS AND IS USING EXECUTIVE ACTION ATTEMPTING TO DO A BACK DOOR GUN BAN …
As reported at The Washington Times, Barack Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the law abiding citizens of the United States. The imperial president is targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters, 5.56 mm ammunition. Unbelievable. Obama was unable to ban the AR-15 and other similar semi-automatic rifles he seemed to scary through the legislative process, so instead he will once again circumvent the US Constitution and the Second Amendment to enact his “kingly” wishes. At issue is the inexpensive 5.56 M855 ammo, commonly called lightgreen tips, that have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police. The BATFE says that since the bullets can be used in semi-automatic handguns they pose a threat to police and must be banned from production, sale and use. However, the BATFE could offer no proof that this ammo is used as such and any officers from any agency have been the victims of their claims.
As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.
Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.
The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.
“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.
WELCOME TO TYRANNY IN AMERICA UNDER BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA … WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE SOMETHING BECAUSE IT MIGHT HARM A POLICE OFFICER. I would dare say that more police officers and federal agents have been killed by cars and trucks in the course of a crime, are we going to ban them next?
Over 100 members of Congress have signed on to a letter that will go to the Director of the ATF expressing serious concern over the ban of the AR-15 ammo. To read a copy of the letter, click link HERE.
Dear Director Jones:
We are writing to express our serious concern with the “ATF Framework for Determining Whether
Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C.
921(a)(17)(C),” issued on February 13, 2015.
The proposed “Framework” purports to establish an “objective” test for determining whether certain
projectiles otherwise considered “armor piercing” under federal law qualify for an exemption allowing
them to be lawfully manufactured, imported, and sold on the civilian market in the United States.
This is infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens and not going to have an affect on criminals.
In fact the FBI reports that this bullet has not been used in a hand gun, which is the claim, to kill any law enforcement agents in over 10 years. (Rep. Bob Goodlatte)
Finally, please contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to sign Rep. Goodlatte’s letter and to oppose BATFE’s proposed “armor piercing” ammunition Framework. To contact them by phone, call the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or CLICK HERE TO WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE.

WHAT HAPPENED TO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE … HHS Pushes Church Talking Points For Bulletin Announcement to Promote Obamacare
IT WOULD APPEAR SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE DOES NOT APPLY TO FEDERALLY MANDATED OBAMACARE.
Just what one wants to listen to when they head off to church on a Sunday morning, an Obamacare sermon. That is possible, in an effort to sign up as many individuals as possible to Obamacare, the Obama administration has gone to incredible, extraordinary lengths to partner with churches and faith-based groups, to even publishing sample church bulletin inserts, flyers, and Obamacre “talking points.” This brought to you by the same people that rail against religion, the Christian religion that is, that might have the slightest inclusion within government. When it is about 10 Commandments in a Court House … that is Seperation of Church and State. But of course it is perfectly okay to promote a federal government mandated law in Church, complete with talking points.
Isn’t this the same crew that is currently suing the Little Sisters of the Poor, trying to force Obamacare on nuns?
In an effort to sign up as many consumers as possible for insurance under the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare), the Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to partner with churches and other faith-based groups, even publishing sample church bulletin inserts, flyers, and scripts for announcements, as well as “talking points.” These materials are part of the “Second Sunday & Faith Weekend of Action Toolkit,” which is available on the website of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
From the beginning, HHS has sought to develop partnerships with faith-based organizations to promote the Obamacare. This “toolkit” has been available since 2013. However, the details of these partnerships have largely escaped the attention of the national media. The Second Sunday & Faith Weekend of Action program encourages churches to use the second Sunday of each month during open enrollment to hold informational meetings and sign-up events. The sample bulletin insert appears as follows:
The materials also include two full pages of “talking points,” which end with an admonition to churches that “[y]ou are trusted messengers in this community. We hope you share this information with those around you so they can be connected with the care they need.”
