Welcome to Statism America
Via Washington Examiner:
Complying with the raging tsunami of new Obamacare rules and regulations will cost American businesses and families 127 million hours annually, enough time to carve out another 1,039 Mount Rushmores which took 14 years complete, according to a new House report.
Based on figures from President Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget and Internal Revenue Service, the new report provided to Secrets reveals that the health reform law set to fully go into effect in 11 months will be the most costly federal burden to hit American in generations. And that hardship will grow as more rules are released.
Just consider: Using the lowest possible wage of an employee complying with Obamacare paperwork–the federal minimum wage–it will cost nearly $1 billion. Put another way: The Empire State building, which took 7 million hours to build, could be erected another 17 times in the time required every year to handle Obamacare rules and regulations.
Ah yes, the inherent incompetence of our government on full display. When we elect buffoons and corruptocrats to office, they pass bills like this, even while we scream not to pass them. And, rather than pass bills that are small, easy to understand an implement, and, yes transparent, Congress passes bills so large no human being could ever fully grasp them. Put it this way, if you called Congress to fix your flat tire, it would go this way. First they would debate for days about the best way to do it. Then they would take three months to actually change your tire. Then they would hand you a bill for 12,000,000 dollars, and after all of that, not only would your flat tire still be flat, but so would your spare, your other three tires, and your car would need a new engine as well.
As long as it suits their needs it seems. Then, well……….
Peter Orszag, President Obama’s first Director of the Office of Management and Budget, has a piece in The New Republic that dips its rhetorical toe in the same authoritarian waters as Bev Perdue’s “joke”.
To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.
Radical as it sounds? You bet. Here, let me translate that for you: “This would be an awesome country if you rubes would just lie back and think of England while your betters fix the mess you made.”
This isn’t really shocking in its scope, though. Both Orszag and Perdue are giving us an insight into the way liberals think, but its not anything that isn’t readily apparent from their actions.
Yes, they are Statists, that is the root ideology of the Left. They usually mask those ideals, but sometimes, the mask slips,and the truth emerges. Take the charge that the Tea Party is racist for example. It is BS, and the Left knows it
Incredible as it may seem, a Democrat Socialist just slipped up and accidentally told the truth.
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.
I’m shocked almost speechless here — not that “liberal” rabble rouser Mary Frances Berry thinks it, but that she’d say it right out loud. But how despicable is it that this bint is willing to recommend such a heinous subterfuge as a viable Democrat Socialist strategy for glomming power? Is there no depth to which these vermin won’t stoop?
NO, there is not, and it is sad that so many Americans would rather digest a steady diet of victimology, than to dine on the inherent optimism of the Founding principles!
Obama’s newest executive order is a step backwards, and a white flag to the race pimps
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama signed an executive order Thursday directing federal officials to design a government-wide strategy for making the federal workforce more diverse.
The three-page order directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget, the President’s Management Council and the chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to work the plan into their hiring and recruiting.
An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander and 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.
Obama is planning to unveil job creation proposals next month. Some black lawmakers and leaders have criticized him for not directly addressing unemployment among blacks.
Blacks and Hispanics have been hit hard by the recession and are suffering unemployment rates of 15.6 percent and 11.3 percent respectively, higher than the 9.1 percent national average.
Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, said fighting job discrimination is as important for minorities as job creation.
“We are a country where it’s easier for a white male with a felony record to find a job than a black man that has never committed a crime, and that in itself is a crime,” Jealous said.
Obama panders to his Far Left base again. Fact is, Obama might end up being the most divisive president in our history. The Left certainly has ramped up their level of intolerance the past three years. And please, let us understand what this is about. It is NOT about fairness. It is about giving more power to the federal government, which is exactly what Obama has been about
