I just added 16 new entries to my list of Obama criticisms

The complete list can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/obama-252/

Here are the new entries:

981) Obamacare customer service telephone number connected an Obamacare customer to “someone reading off a script in the Philippines”

In November 2014, a New York Times article on Obamacare said that Health Republic Insurance was

… a new co-op plan created under the law, for people who lived in the area.

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

Compounding the problem is the lack of basic information to shop effectively. When Andrea Greenberg, a New York lawyer, called the help line of Health Republic to clarify the difference between two plans, she found herself speaking to someone reading off a script in the Philippines. “I was really outraged,” she said. “This is an important decision with potentially dire consequences. It’s not like you’re choosing a sweater.”

982) During the first year that Obamacare was in effect, the percentage of U.S. citizens who said they had trouble affording health care increased from 36% to 46%

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

A recent New York Times/CBS poll found that 46 percent of Americans said they had trouble affording health care, up 10 percentage points in just one year.

983) A year after Obamacare took effect, the New York Times wrote, “For still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that they just avoid seeing doctors”

A February 2015 New York Times article on Obamacare said:

“For still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that they just avoid seeing doctors.”

984) Although Obamacare gives employers an incentive to reduce their employees’ hours, Obama criticized companies that actually responded to this incentive

Because Obamacare’s employer mandate only applies to employees who work 30 or more hours per week, it gives employers an incentive to reduce their employees’ hours to 29 hours per week.

In July 2013, the New York Times reported that Obamacare

“… sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment.”

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will

“… destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class… the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation.”

Although it was Obama himself who signed Obamacare into law in March 2010, in February 2015 Obama said:

“… when I hear large corporations that make billions of dollars in profits trying to blame our interest in providing health insurance as an excuse for cutting back workers’ wages, shame on them.”

985) Falsely said, “There is no reason for an employer who is not currently providing health care to their workers to discourage them from either getting health insurance on the job or being able to avail themselves of the Affordable Care Act.”

In February 2015, Obama said:

“There is no reason for an employer who is not currently providing health care to their workers to discourage them from either getting health insurance on the job or being able to avail themselves of the Affordable Care Act.”

However, in the same article, Reuters explained that there is indeed such a reason:

“The Affordable Care Act requires companies with more than 50 employees to pay for health insurance for people who work 30 hours a week or more. Reuters has reported that some businesses are keeping staffing numbers below 50 or cutting the work week to less than 30 hours to avoid providing employee health insurance.”

986) In February 2015, Democrats who voted for Obamacare complained that people actually had to pay for it

In February 2015, Associated Press reported:

Democrats seek relief from health law penalties

Senior Democrats seek sign-up extension for people facing health law penalties

Three senior House members told The Associated Press that they plan to strongly urge the administration to grant a special sign-up opportunity for uninsured taxpayers who will be facing fines under the law for the first time this year.

The three are Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.

“Open enrollment period ended before many Americans filed their taxes,” the three lawmakers said in a statement. “Without a special enrollment period, many people (who will be paying fines) will not have another opportunity to get health coverage this year.

“A special enrollment period will not only help many Americans avoid making an even larger payment next year, but, more importantly, it will help them gain quality health insurance for 2015,” the lawmakers added.

987) “Top teacher” said she resigned because of Obama’s Common Core and Obama’s continuation of Bush’s No Child Left Behind

In February 2015, Stacie Starr, winner of the 2014 “Top Teacher” award by “Live with Kelly and Michael,” said that she was resigning because of Obama’s Common Core and Obama’s continuation of Bush’s No Child Left Behind. She did not quit teaching per se. Instead, she resigned her official teaching position, and said she would be focusing her efforts on alternative systems of education that were not controlled by the federal bureaucracy.

988) Gave out even more illegal exemptions to Obamacare

In February 2015, Obama gave out even more exemptions to Obamacare. Because he did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

989) Sent false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees

In February 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had sent false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees.

990) Falsely said that “economic grievances” were a cause of terrorism

In February 2015, Obama said that “economic grievances” were a contributing factor to terrorism. However, in the real world, many terrorists come from middle class and wealthy backgrounds.

991) Illegally continued part of his illegal amnesty program even after a federal judge blocked it

In February 2015, the Obama administration continued part of its illegal amnesty program even after a federal judge blocked it.

992) Department of Energy spent taxpayers’ money on a casino night, a Super Bowl party, a golf tournament, a banquet on a dinner cruise boat, and dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame

Between April 2013 and September 2014, the Department of Energy spent taxpayers’ money on a casino night, a Super Bowl party, a golf tournament, a banquet on a dinner cruise boat, and a dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

993) Advised border patrol agents to release drunk drivers

In February 2015, the Obama administration advised border patrol agents to release drunk drivers.

994) Made it possible for illegal aliens to collect back tax refunds even if they had never actually paid any taxes

In February 2015, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that Obama’s amnesty program for illegal aliens made it possible form them to collect back tax refunds even if they had never actually paid any taxes.

995) After an Islamic terrorist who murdered four Jews at a kosher supermarket in France said he had specifically targeted them because they were Jewish, Obama falsely said the attack was “random”

In January 2015, an Islamic terrorist named Ahmedy Coulibaly murdered four Jews at Hyper Cacher, a kosher supermarket in France.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

Coulibaly called a French TV station from the kosher supermarket and said he was an al-Qaida terrorist and that he chose the kosher supermarket because he wanted to kill Jews.

However, Obama said the murders were “random.”

996) Broke his promise to release a 28 page document which allegedly proved that the Saudi Arabian government had supported the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks

In September 2014, it was reported that Obama had broken his promise to release a 28 page document which allegedly proved that the Saudi Arabian government had supported the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    Early congratulations. The way Ohbongo is going it won’t be long before you get that last four items to break 1,000. You’ve done a fantastic job of compiling this list. My hat is off to you, even though the weather in Maryland is bitter cold, and I like having my hat on!

  2. EDell replied:

    Must’ve come as a real downer for you that you were just 4 short of cracking 1,000. Seriously, you really need to get a life, because this one you’ve got is pretty sad, to say the least, particularly since you’re accomplishing absolutely nothing constructive by posting these “criticisms.”

    Dan, you truly are “The Man”. I gave up making my own list of his anti-American antics because, frankly, it was too damn depressing. Everyday I get to wake up to “Today, President OBama . . .” For a NARCICIST he truly did claim the grand prize. Worse, are his backhanded slaps against US citizens, like Sgt. Tamoreesi, our dead Ambassador and . . . I have to quit now. Don’t get me started!

    “But but but the Mandate was just a typo” said Gruber

    • John replied:

      I hope the world will hear that John Kerry was up to his eyeballs in conspiring to defraud American taxpayers. And the R’s stood by? What is happening here?

      • happypappies replied:

        That was after Gruber got called to the carpet for telling the truth. You can’t do that. And, it’s about to happen again. You know, the Network Neutrality Act that Obie is holding up because it will work “Like a Utility” duuhhh you think they will tax it like another mandate lolol I just hope that’s all they do……. 😦

    Poor, Poor EDell

    There was something about
    all to question it was from hell
    EDell posted questionable shit.

    Here there, everywhere to read
    butt flies were EDells only takers
    safe at home in a giant pile of shit.

    For EDell had no brain just an ISP
    no one knows no one cares neither
    EDell’s copy is up for target practice.

    Mr. Gruber!
