Hey, Obama — When’s My Healthcare Cost Going Down By $2,500?

Hillary Clinton condescendingly called half of Trump supporters “deplorables” and looked at them with contempt. Trump then proposed allowing working families to deduct the cost of childcare, one of the biggest entitlements proposed in years. One would think that after seemingly four years of primaries, the Dems and the GOP would, by now, have at least nominated someone from their own parties.

Hillary’s carefully controlled, personal doctors press release said in measured terms that she is OK and should be well enough in a week to return to lying to the American people, deleting emails, and smashing her cell phones like Gallagher at his Branson, Missouri show.

Then Trump goes on the Dr. Oz Show, the Mayo Clinic of daytime TV, to reveal his healthiness.  To date Trump had released a onepage letter from his doctor, who looks like he got his medical degree at a Grateful Dead concert, saying Trump is the most magnificent physical specimen since Fabio. The letter went on to say that he could wrestle a bear and should be drafted by the New York Jets in the second round next year.

I’m not sure when it happened, but now politicians just lie to us without consequences. Obama sold Obamacare on lies: “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. Period. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.  Period.” Then he said Obamacare would “reduce the average family’s healthcare costs $2,500 a year.” All premeditated lies.

Hillary and Obama lied and said the Benghazi attacks were because of a You Tube video. They even had they filmmaker arrested. Scary.

The IRS targets Obama’s political opponents and then its officials take the Fifth; they do not answer subpoenas and smirk at justice.

After Hillary lied about her emails, members of her State Department tech crew took the Fifth; one didn’t even show up after being subpoenaed by Congress. Hillary lied, too.

This “birther” thing Hillary is blaming Trump for?  It turns out that, in the 2008 presidential race, the Clinton camp (a camp I’d advise not sending your kids to) started the rumor.

Hillary learned from her experience serving on the Watergate committee (from which she was fired) what to do with damaging evidence. If Nixon had destroyed the tapes, he would have gone down in history as a great president. Nixon’s men engaged in political shenanigans that would be child’s play today.  No one died, unlike Benghazi. No national secrets were compromised by using a personal server to send classified documents. What Nixon did would be called “opposition research” today. Nixon’s famous line was, “I am not a crook.” By Hillary Clinton‘s standards, he was not.

Maybe they get away with such lies and indignities today because the press no longer investigates Democrats. The media are advocacy media; they never turn on one of their own. The mainstream media treated Trump well, urging him on and promoting him in the GOP primary against the other sixteen candidates because they thought he’d be easier for Hillary to defeat. Now they run negative story after insulting story about him since there is a chance he could win.

With the death of fair journalism, politicians can now do what they like without consequences. Since they have lost all journalistic respectability, the new leftist media game is socalled “fact checking.” They dubiously check facts that fit their narrative.

Hillary’s longtime staff, either paid for with your tax dollars at the State Department or by the Clinton Crime Family Foundation (or both simultaneously), protect her. Hillary surrounds herself with sharpelbowed Democrat thugs who look like they could be in a women’s prison gang. They yell “Chauvinism!” when allegations are brought, but never address the facts. Everybody wants to work for Hillary except her lungs.

They spin everything to fit their narrative. They want to tax us on carbons, so they blame every rainstorm, heat wave and fire on global warming. The fires in California probably could be more accurately blamed on Hillary fundraising there, with blazes sparked by her pants being on fire.

You never know what to believe from politicians today. Obama finds race issues in everything. You cannot sort laundry without Obama calling you a racist. But now his liberal minions at Cal State University (LA) are going to provide separate dorm rooms for black students. Obama came into office saying he was Martin Luther King. It seems he will go out as Jesse Helms.
