(AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley)Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is demanding answers from the Obama administration about the cost of a proposed campaign geared towards promoting healthcare exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act.

"I am interested in knowing what resources the administration believes it has for such a campaign," McConnell wrote in a Friday letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell.

McConnell said he only learned of the exchanges by reading reports in the media, and took a shot at "the failed Obamacare exchanges" by noting that major insurers are starting to pull out.

"Nearly every day brings another set of stories about the dysfunction of the Obamacare exchanges and the negative impact on consumers," he wrote. "More recently, we have learned ... that Obamacare's onerous rules and poor implementation have caused a number of insurers to withdraw their participation from the exchanges, leading to fewer choices ... for consumers in the marketplace."

What a political hack....posturing for his voters...I do not believe a word that any politician says anymore. They have worn out their welcome and need to be replaced with patriotic Americans.

Brian, what we need are Statesmen but, the majority of people in this country wouldn't vote for them if they ran for office.  The majority of people seem to want to take the U.S. down to the level of  Cuba or Columbia.  Obama, for the last 8 years, has been chipping away at this country's very foundation.  If Hillary gets into office, in another 4 to 8 years, this country won't be recognizable.  We are sliding down into another dark ages. 

You got that right.

Must be an election coming up. There never cared where he was getting the money before.

oblamea's muzziecare is doing exactly what it was intended to do. BANKRUPT THE WORKING CLASS/MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE! Never forget peabrainlosi's famous quote "lets pass the bill first, and then we can read what is in it."

A lot of mouth and no action. We need to stop putting people like him in office.

And yet, Rubio was voted in again. Look at how long Boehner kept being voted in.

How dumb is this country?

so the idiot regains consciousness ...stick a fork in it i think its done

Hey, McConnell, you and buddy boy Ryan (so he could clear his desk) along with McCain, Hatch, Graham, etc. were complicit in pushing through the Omnibus Spending Bill in the House - funding every dream the DEMONcRATS had including OWEbamaTAX, Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, increasing illegals, open borders, TPP, etc., etc.  Just where do you think he's getting the funding?  You Senators and the House have royally turned your back on we the people!!! Please don't say, well finance is in the House; you in the Senate "lobby" your own way to "encourage" the House to pass the bill.

What is it with these idiots in Congress - do they not think?  Wonder what their cut is...

Would he understand them. He is rather dense.

He is worthless.

Too little too late.  Should have listened to his constituents.  He needs to be retired. 





Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
