The Government Family Album

130509-osu-obama-speech-cartoon-In a variation on his “you didn’t build that” theme, President Obama told Ohio State grads to lose individual ambition and embrace their government. Update: Otherwise, expect an IRS audit.

He implored the new grads to reject:

“the voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s the root of all our problems…”

And while they’re at it, reject the idea of checks and balances because:

“we sometimes forget the larger bonds we share, as one American family.”

Shameful

 

Barack Obama says nobody's coming to take your crock pot, but what law-abiding American needs a pressure cooker?It was a shameful day for Washington. The senate let the president down and we disappointed him. Again. Now he is scolding us and we are snickering. Vice Principal Biden is really pissed. They’re in danger of losing control of Junior High America and the good kids are mortified.

The Obamacare Cadillac hits a wall and driver says "I need insurance on a vehicle with a pre-existing condition."
Health insurance rates are taking off under Obamacare, especially if you now carry a high deductible plan. Kathleen Sebelius agrees.

“Some of these folks have very high catastrophic plans that don’t pay for anything unless you get hit by a bus,” she said. “They’re really mortgage protection, not health insurance.”

Megan McCardle at the Daily Beast thinks Sebelius is confused about what insurance is.

Sebelius’ response is apparently that catastrophic insurance isn’t really insurance at all–which is exactly backwards. Catastrophic coverage is “true insurance”. Coverage of routine, predictable services is not insurance at all; it’s a spectacularly inefficient prepayment plan.

Dr. Krauthammer concurs.

“This is not insurance anymore. This is regulation, this is government dictated rates, like the electrical company…”

 

Obama Bahama

 

As students ask Barack Obama to open the White House for Spring Break, Michelle Obama says "let em go the The Bahamas."The Obama girls are spring breaking at Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas. It’s the fourth Obama vacation of the new year. Meanwhile the White House remains closed to school children on spring break.

One link down on the royal food chain, Joe Biden blew half a million a night on hotels in London and Paris plus $320,000 on carfare – about the same amount the senate barber shop loses every year.

John Stossel thinks Washington has become an imperial city. He claims that 43% of the top 1% live in the Washington area, feeding off taxpayers. “It’s very much like Versailles before the French Revolution,” says historian John Steele Gordon

Slippery Slope

 

130312slope_drone_obamacareRand Paul’s 13 hour filibuster, extracted an agreement from the administration not to kill American citizens sitting in American cafes. For those keeping score, the Holder/Obama team has whacked 3 Americans so far.

That still leaves this administration 77 short of the Clinton/Reno mark of 80 killed in Waco Texas.

However, President Obama has shown the remarkable ability to extend the kill zone for American citizens and constitutional rights for foreign terrorists at the same time! In early March Bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, was picked up in Jordan and brought to New York for trial. Along the way he was read his Miranda rights.

The true test of Obama’s power is – will Sulaiman be forced to buy health insurance?
