With almost two months in office now, President Obama continues the path to abolish anything left in this country. His shady ways of Obama care will be here shortly and I can’t wait for Americans to start complaining. They have no idea how much this is going to cost them. My response will continue to be “told you so”. The ads from H & R block are starting to run on TV how they are going to help us all out with the details and how much it is going to cost us if we decide to opt out. Doesn’t this sound fun? If you’re not in the loop a health plan is required by everyone when the time comes. What I find even more amazing is that the people I continue to talk to think this is free health care. They are wrong! It’s the “Affordable Health Care Act”. “Affordable” unfortunately isn’t defined .
The new gun laws are here and were signed which means if you plan on buying a gun from your neighbor or anywhere privately then you’re breaking the law. A background check is required for all purchases now. It was an opportunity for Obama to do something over an incident (school shootings). This of course doesn’t solve anything as it relates to the shootings. Bad guys are not going to be buying a gun. If we look back at the last several shootings none of them would have been picked up with this new law so it solves nothing. The NRA offered the best solution and that was “the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun”. The schools have enough money to support a security officer with a gun. If each classroom brings in six figures and teachers are being paid $35,000 – the money is available. Not to mention the executives are making $300K a year. It’s another failure for Obama and another victory for his brand and image.
As we continue on the Obama path the next 4 years, I’m expecting the same. More branding and image building for Obama and less action items that solve real issues. Obama is just like the other lame politicians and continues to kick the can down the road. Afraid to touch the real issues like spending or resolving Social Security. He will never touch these items and is just hoping it won’t totally fall apart during his terms.
