Obama's "We Must Kick The Can" Presser - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

Sequester, Schmequester. It would seem Q4's initial warning from the DoD was enough to get the DC-ites scrambling. President Obama takes to the teleprompter to suggest (we assume) humbly that we swap today's sequester plans for tomorrow's 'balanced' slower rate of spending growth (oh and we are sure some new taxes). And yay verily, all will be well once again in the land of make-believe fiscal policy...

"We need to ensure more debt-derived fiat money is given freely to the banking-WallStreet-Defense complex that owns me, your duly elected Congress, federal & state level regulators, and the judiciary branch of your government, bitchez."

"My fellow Americans, we've thought long and hard about this, and decided we are such cowardly pussies that we are going to redouble our efforts to enslave future generations with an unpayably large debt burden instead of taking responsible steps to deal with our own problems. In short, our political livelihood and comfort are far more important than your children living free, so therefore we take these steps today to further sell them into slavery and line our own pockets with electronically generated money that represents complete and unabashed theft of the current and future value of the savings and labor of you, the American people. Wait, oh shit, my teleprompter got hacked by Anon!"

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."


Senator Barack Obamney (D-IL)

March 16, 2006

Official National Debt at that time: 8 trillion USD

I've said it before and I'll say it again it looks like some of the real left liberals not the faux-liberals are starting to wake up and smell the coffee. Real liberals most certainly do not like wall street, war and violation of civil rights. The fabian socialists like Obama and the other faux-liberals are not in the same ideological league.

To make my point.


Firebrand black activist Dr. Cornel West gave a speech at the Tavis Smiley Presents Poverty In America series on Thursday that may surprise libertarians – in how much they agree with the "socialist radical."

Decrying the erosion of civil liberties today, Dr. West loudly lamented the "crypto-fascist" state developing in America – contrasting the federal government to crack addicts, whom he said at least "are honest about their addiction. The White House is addicted to power!"

"Love and justice is always weak ... [which is why] first you have to have a suspicion of government. This is why I resonate with my conservative brothers!" West said.

Continuing, he pointed out, "governments can be repressive! Vicious! Ugly! Violate your rights! Violate your liberties! Crush your people! Generate the propaganda! We need that sensibility too!"

Dr. West says that he understands the growing collusion between corporate America and the federal government to be a form of creeping crypto-fascism, a security state where rights are routinely violated and ignored – not so dissimilar to the plight of the black community today. In particular, he described the National Defense Authorization Act as a possible tool of government oppression, pointing out that Martin Luther King Jr. was under federal surveillance from January 1956 until his death in April 1968.

Most alarming for Dr. West was that provisions of the NDAA could have been used to lock away MLK without "due process or judicial process" – because he had known links to a man then commonly called a terrorist and now referred to as a heroic freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela

Surprise! IRS Calculates Cheapest ‘Obamacare’ Plan Will Average $20,000 Per Family

Finally we can officially declare the middle class FUCKED, and for good. Nice job boys and girls..


When the Obama White House and Congress passed The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (i.e. “Obamacare”), we clearly recall being told that the bill would save Americans money.

Yet, as CNSNews.com reports, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in a regulation issued Wednesday “assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.”

Wait, what?

Yes, while explaining the penalty for not purchasing government insurance, the IRS calculates that the average annual cost for a family will be at about $20,000.

“The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan,” CNSNews.com reports.

“The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan,” the report adds.

Wait a minute. What is the exact language of the IRS regulation?

“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation states.


“Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare — after Silver, Gold, and Platinum,” CNS explains. “Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.”

I have seen this info elsewhere but I am at a loss to understand it.  $20K?

When will the MSM shine a light on this albatross that is called ObamaCare?

I am not holding my breath.


kill switch's picture




This should explain it,, Paul Craig Roberts site Long...


sschu's picture

Thanks, I will read it.

Imagine a family of four in their 20s who is pretty healthy being asked to pay $20K for medical insurance.  Even with help from the employer for funding, that will put a dent in your home budget.  

I pay that much for our family and an employee now and both of us are in our late 50s.  We own a small business.

I am probably going to have to opt out of providing insurance to employees.  What a mess.

In a visit with my Dr. last week he seemed to really want to talk about Obamacare.  Some interesting concerns he had (we didn't talk for long).  The "Good Dr./Bad Doctor" list has some pretty fucked up metrics.  For example, he mentioned, if he prescribes medication and the patient doesn't purchase it (or purchases it for cheaper than a threshhold [Walmart]) then that's a point to end up on the "Bad Doctor" list.  He also mentioned that he is allowed certain percentages for patients to refuse preventative care.  He used colonoscopies as the example.  If his refusals for that procedure exceed a certain percentage he is once again on the "Bad Doctor" list.  Seems pretty fucked for the government to be instituting these sort of standards.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

No it is not this is exactly how fabian socialism works. Coercion will be the classification along with fines all while having the old system subsidize the new. You do a gradual shift from one to the next and at the same time you've brought what is left of the decimated middle class into the entitlement state. EBT entitlements for the poor, health care for the middle, free money for the banks and wall street, the list goes on and on.

NotApplicable's picture

Actually, holding your breath is a requirement of O'bummerCare.

Sorry 'bout that.

F TV and F Hollywood aka Operation Mockingbird.  They totally support O.  If you watch it - you support it so don't complain sheep-sters.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

They won't have to. The average low information person will just need to look at their tax return and paycheck (assuming they don't get assimilated into the EBT zombie collective). They may be dumb and distracted but they know when they don't have as much money in the pocket.

Yet another reason to not work and not pay taxes.

These people have lost their fucking minds.

Instead of a tax hike, they should do a "kicking booth".  Charge whatever they want.  People would line up for miles to kick that SOB in the beans.  They could even put Holder next to him and do a buy one, get one at half price.  That would fix the National debt in no time.

Yes, no plan other than stay the course.
