Dems looking through rose-colored glasses

Published 9:22am Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I would like to know what kind of “Kool-Aid” Jim Crawford has been drinking to only see good news with “Obamacare.”

Yes, the people will be covered with mom or dad’s insurance to 26 years of age. However, at 27, no matter what job they have, they must buy insurance coverage or pay a fine to the federal government.

The rosy picture he puts forth shows policies going down, premiums dropping down, which is only true in his dreams.

I live in the real world and drugs that before “Obamacare” were tier one with no co-pay. Many are now tier 2 with a large co-pay.

The phony way that unemployment is dropping is to count part-time jobs as people in the workforce. This hasn’t been done under any other president, and just don’t count those who have given up on finding a job. They are forgotten in the unemployment count.

The true unemployment is nearer to 15 percent not 7.4. To count part-time jobs as full-time employment sure looks good. However, try to raise a family on less than 30 hours a week at any job.

As for his write up on Aug. 9, he doesn’t think anything is wrong. However, when Nixon had taped many conversations and was caught lying, he was impeached. Nixon was a Republican, and the Obama presidency is Democratic. All the true scandals the Democrats have been trying to sweep everything under the rug.

As Hillary Clinton said about Benghazi, “What difference does it make?” To her, none. To the families who lost four people, it says that this administration isn’t standing with them.

To the border agent who was killed by our giving guns to Mexican dope dealers in “Fast and Furious,” our Democratic leaders say nothing. Again, what difference did it make?

What about those who were targeted after applying for tax exempt status? How come only Democrats were given the right and those that oppose Obama, many of which still are waiting for approval because they refused to say what they prayed for, and how many were in their group.

Jim calls this a made-up scandal, but if that was so, tell me just why did so many that testified get caught in lies or take the fifth, refusing to answer on the grounds that they would incriminate themselves.

However, we are led by a bunch of lying Democrats who never know the truth when it hits them in the face. They just try to bury it under the Democratic rug.

There are other scandals to numerous to write about that I left out.

I’m glad that I drink water, which doesn’t rose color the truth.

Had this been a Republican administration, the president would have been impeached for allowing this to go on.

A Republican would not promote those who took the Fifth Amendment or are on paid administrative leave and will get a promotion when they come back.
