Companies Can Avoid Obama Care Fines By Hiring Illegal Aliens

(26 Nov 2014) For firms that do not offer insurance, the penalty is $3,000 for every employee receiving a subsidy on an Obama Care exchange. However, Czar Obama's executive order covering illegal aliens permits these companies to hire illegal aliens and not pay the $3,000 penalty. (Source: 26 Nov 2014 FOX News)

All By Itself, GM May Break Industry's Record For Recalls In 1 Year

Obama Care Intentionally Written To Fool the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) And Voters

(23 Nov 2014) The following quotes were made by Jonathan Gruber at the University of Pennsylvania's 24th Annual Health Economics Conference on 17 Oct. 2013. A portion of his remarks while seated at a table with 2 men to his right were videotaped and posted on You Tube in Nov. 2014. He is a professor of economics at MIT and the director of the National Bureau of Economic Research Health Care Program. He has been described as an "architect" and "writer" of Obama Care, having worked with both Czar Obama and Congress. "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass. This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes ... the bill dies if CBO scored the mandate as taxes. It was written to do that. I wish ... we could all make it all transparent, but I would rather have this law than not."

Google And NRG Want Federal Grant To Pay Off Inefficient Solar Facility Federal Loan

(23 Nov 2014) In 2013, Czar Obama handed out $18.5 billion in renewable energy grants, with $4.4 billion going to solar projects. Ivanpah solar electricity plant (in California) is owned by Google and renewable energy company NRG. The project received a $1.6 billion construction loan from U.S. taxpayers. Now, owners want a $539 million federal grant to pay off their federal loan. From January through August, the plant produced only 25.4% of the power it's supposed to. An NRG spokesman blamed the weather, saying the sun didn't shine as predicted. NRG probably blames global warming for the lack of sunshine. The facility uses thousands of large mirrors on the ground to reflect concentrated beams at towers. The heat generates steam to turn turbines that create electricity. Flying birds mistake the mirrors as water. As they approach, the 800 degrees F solar beams roast them. A recent study called Ivanpah a "mega-trap" that will kill up to 28,000 birds a year.

National Debt Continues To Soar

(10 Nov 2014) In May 2003, Obama called on the Senate to resist Bush's "unprecedented $300 billion deficit" that "underscores the recklessness of the George W. Bush administration and the Republican Congress". During the 2008 campaign, Czar Obama said, "The first thing you do when you're in a hole is what? ... You stop digging. So the first thing that we're going to have to do is to stop adding to our deficit." During the 69 full months of Czar Obama's reign, the national debt increased by $7.31 trillion to $17.94 trillion, at an annual rate of $1.27 trillion. The increase in the last 12 months was $0.78 trillion. During Bush's 95 full months, the debt increased $4.98 trillion at an annual rate of $0.63 trillion. Obama's rate is 2.02 times Bush's. Bush was bad ... Obama is horrible.

Michigan's Politicians Try To Stop Free-Market Innovation

(10 Nov 2014) The National Automobile Dealers Association, which represents almost 16,000 new-car dealers, is a crony-capitalist organization that inhibits competition. It supports a Michigan bill that prohibits automakers from selling a vehicle "directly to a retail customer other than through franchised dealers," with exceptions for nonprofit organizations and government agencies. Tesla Motors, which operates showrooms but only takes orders over the Internet, would be blocked from selling its electric cars under legislation that awaits Gov. Rick Snyder's signature.

Head Start Is Nothing But Babysitting, Funded By Taxpayers

(10 Nov 2014) The Head Start Impact Study was a national assessment of Head Start students, following them through the third grade. The positive impact did not last past kindergarten. Tennessee's Voluntary Pre-K program analyzed 3,000 preschool children. The statistically significant gains that preschool students made had diminished greatly by the end of kindergarten and had entirely disappeared by first grade. (Source: 15 Oct 2014 Cato Institute)

California Voters May Want Higher Health Care Costs

(3 Nov 2014) In the 1970s, California doctors were fed up with having to pay skyrocketing medical malpractice premiums ... some plaintiffs were winning pain and suffering awards of tens of millions of dollars. In response, the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) capped pain and suffering awards at $250,000. Now, the trial lawyers have raised $2 million to support a ballot initiative (Proposition 46) to increase that cap to $1.1 million and allow the cap to increase with inflation. It is estimated that health care costs will increase by $9.9 billion annually in California. (Sources: California Medical Association, 30 Oct 2014 National Center for Policy Analysis)
