Yesterday he was the savior of the world- all those jobs he “saved or created” and keeping the world from falling into the great depression.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The number of U.S. workers filing new applications for unemployment insurance unexpectedly surged last week, while producer prices increased sharply in January, raising potential hurdles for the economic recovery.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 31,000 to 473,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday. That compared to market expectations for 430,000.
Ya think the morons would have waited until this report came out before sending TOTUS, Biden and the Obama hopey changey cheerleaders out to tout his magnificence?
Prices are going up, jobless claims are going up and yet the liar in chief is all over the news yesterday claiming WE are all too stoopid to understand how helpful HIS economic stimulus plan was to us poor bitter hicks.
Well at least some of Obama’s biggest campaign contributors are benefiting from his reign.
In the midst of a deep economic recession, America’s health insurance companies increased their profits by 56 percent in 2009, a year that saw 2.7 million people lose their private coverage.
Remember it was just a week ago when Obama and his shill HHS Secretary Sebelius were demanding explanations for the huge increase proposed by the big insurance companies?
Sebelius said “it remains difficult to understand” how premium increases of up to 39 percent can be justified when WellPoint reported a $2.7 billion profit in the last quarter of 2009.
Right- sure- ok. All smoke and mirrors in the push to renew public enthusiasm for the DOA health care bill. Here is what she says now-
“This shocking increase isn’t unique,” said the report, being presented by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a news conference Thursday. “Across the country, families have seen their premiums skyrocket in recent years, and experts predict these increases will continue.”
Saw that coming a mile off. We are being played – no way is Obama going to piss off his buyers. If his plan succeeds they all get what they want- he gets his “historic moment” of passing a health care reform bill and the insurance companies get to stick it to us-AGAIN!
The White House may think we are stupid; they may claim not to have “explained” the benefits of their plan to us low intelligence citizens and they can continue til the cows come home spinning and respinning. They are either masters of double speak or just to dumb to realize we live in the REAL world- not the alternate universe with its rarefied air that they inhabit.
