Yesterday, Obama managed to pull himself away from the basketball court long enough to inform Congress, by letter, that he has decided to send U.S. troops to four African nations. In point of fact, some American warriors already have arrived in Uganda. U.S. troops will soon be arriving in South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Obama says they were sent to "advise" the Africans how to combat one of the most wicked terrorist groups on the planet, not do the fighting themselves, unless they are attacked.
We also got to learn that Obama is dropping a key component of Obamacare -- a long-term care insurance plan called CLASS (Community Living Assistance Services and Supports). The idea of the program was for people to pay insurance payments and collect benefits if they became disabled.
According to Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius:
Despite our best analytical efforts, I do not see a viable path forward for CLASS implementation at this time.Excuse me while I roll on the floor laughing. Does Sebelius actually think America is going to believe that the Obamaniacs actually analyzed the Obamacare design?
I doubt that even OWS believes that. Stilton Jarlsberg has deconstructed the complex logical system used by the Obamaniacs to "analyze" the CLASS program (a particular pet project of Ted Kennedy):
[I}t turns out that if EVERY American worker (healthy or sick) had signed up for the plan, it still wouldn't have had enough participants to break even. Apparently, the government never actually stopped to think about how many people actually exist. . .
Keep in mind, this is the same braintrust that cobbled together all of the other numbers which supposedly show that Obamacare can work.This is a case of closing the barn door after a pony named Tragic Consequences has raced through all 57 states leaving behind a steaming trail of toxic road apples.
[I]f Obamacare collapses (as it is predicted to) after eliminating private health insurance companies, it will be impossible for our nation's healthcare system to ever recover.
