Heritage’s newly updated Obamacare in Pictures has 15 charts that show the law’s effects on Americans—from canceled insurance policies to new taxes, Medicare cuts, reduced choice for plans, and more.

Talking about Obamacare’s effects is one thing; seeing hard data is another.

YOUNG PEOPLE:

Obamacare says you can stay on your parents’ health insurance until you turn 26. This chart looks at what happens after that—if you don’t have employer-sponsored insurance and you have to get insured through Obamacare. If you’re trying to save for a car or house—or just paying rent to have your own place—seeing your premiums double is quite a blow.

SENIORS:

You may recall Heritage experts’ warning that Obamacare would cut $716 billion from Medicare. That’s still happening.

Despite the Obama administration’s recent walking back of Medicare Advantage cuts for this year, Obamacare’s planned cuts to Medicare are moving forward. This chart shows which parts of Medicare are affected.

Heritage expert Alyene Senger has explained that, instead of cutting waste, fraud, and abuse in the Medicare program, Obamacare targets the amounts Medicare service providers are paid. These cuts have ripple effects on seniors. Doctors, nursing homes, and other providers who can’t afford to be part of Medicare any more will cut back or stop participating—and that means fewer options and less access to care for seniors.

ALL AMERICANS:

This chart looks a lot like a heartbeat—and it tracks one of Obamacare’s vital signs: public opinion. There has been a 10-point gap between support for and opposition to the law for some time now. That spike in opposition/sharp decline in support? It coincides with the flood of cancellation notices that landed in Americans’ mailboxes last year.

Obamacare remains unpopular because it’s raising taxes, killing jobs, and cutting Americans’ health care choices. We need health reform that reverses these trends.

My examination of a liberal meme that blames conservatives and credits liberals for a list of policies and issues in American history.

I further point out the cowardice of democrats trying to throw people off the scent of their rotten history, by trying to switch labels to stigmatize conservatives.

Obama-Appeaser-in-Chief

In an increasingly dangerous world where most Americans are distracted by busy lives and domestic politics, an award-winning national security reporter, Bill Gertz, is watching a radical, progressive transformation of America’s image and capabilities.

And Gertz is underwhelmed with Republican efforts to challenge, expose or stop the changes that are already underway.

In this two-part video interview, Gertz says Obama’s statecraft can best be summarized as “appeasement-oriented policies.”

“Those have translated into supporting America’s enemies and really being neutral or opposed to America’s friends and allies,” he said. “In a nutshell, that’s really where the Obama administration is. It’s kind of advanced much more now in the second term to a very liberal agenda, looking at America as the cause of all the world’s evils and really trying to focus attention on his domestic agenda.”

Gertz goes on to review the realistic intentions and capabilities of China, the nation he thinks is our biggest threat outside of radical Islamic terrorists.

“To me, this current world situation of appeasing Vladimir Putin is very similar to the way that Britain appeased Hitler in the run up to World War II,” he continued. “Dictators don’t respond to appeasement. They take it as a green light to continue further aggression, further hegemony, and they [Obama officials] really need to rethink their policies towards Russia. I don’t think that’s possible. They are totally wedded to the liberal notion that we live in a non-confrontational global environment.”

A previous portion of the interview discussed why the media has failed to hold President Obama accountable.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Chris Stigall talked to former CBS News Reporter Sharyl Attkisson this morning on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the trouble reporters have to deal with while covering politicians and the government, as well as the current state of investigative reporting.

Responding to comments regarding a Phoenix television reporter yesterday who initially claimed that the White House pre-screens questions from reporters, Attkisson said:

“I wouldn’t surprised if sometimes there is that level of cooperation with some questions. If I need something answered from the White House and they won’t tell me, I’ll call our White House Correspondent.

They’re friendlier with the White House Correspondents in general. So the White House Correspondent may ask Jay Carney or one of his folks about an issue and they will be told ‘ask that at the briefing and we’ll answer it.’ They want to answer it in front of everybody. They do know it’s coming and they’ll call on you. There’s that kind of coordination sometimes. I wouldn’t be shocked if there’s sometimes more coordination. I don’t think it’s everybody on every briefing, every day. I’m pretty sure it’s not. But I think people would be surprised at the level of cooperation reporters have in general with politicians.”

She also said it is more and more difficult for investigative reporters to get their stories published or on the air because of the trouble it may cause:

“Nobody was interested in the stories. It didn’t seem to matter what the topic was. There’s sort of a problem all over, I talk to my colleagues in different mediums. There’s just a lot of pressure. Investigative reporting gets a lot of backlash. They don’t quite know how to deal with it. Why not just put on stories that don’t draw that kind of response?”

Jon Stewart opened Monday night’s Daily Show with a stinging takedown of President Obama‘s NSA speech; a delicate tightrope act involving Obama trying to assuage privacy advocates while actually not doing anything that would upset the people with actual say and power in this debate.

Obama talked so long about the history of surveillance, it almost seemed like the point was to make it so boring, people would stop listening. The clear takeaway from the speech, for Stewart, was that there are loopholes galore for the government, meaning to them “we will totally follow the rules until we determine such time when we will no longer follow the rules.”

Obama did say this was a very important debate, which is why, Stewart explained, “the person who started this debate must be hunted down and thrown in prison for life.”

Income inequality is more pronounced than ever under President Obama…

Obama Audacity

It is hard not to marvel at the audacity of a man, who after five years in office, identifies as, quote, “as the defining challenge of our time,” an income gap that as you heard has steadily widened since he’s been in office. But income inequality has long been a preoccupation of Democrats to the point that it sometimes seem they’d prefer everyone be equally poor than unequally rich. – Brit Hume

This site, is either being bombarded by illegal immigration advocates or Patriots…

“As we mark the great Dr. King’s birthday, it’s safe to say, higher minority unemployment and no wage increase in 40 years were not part of his dream for Americans,” said Joe Guzzardi, Media Director for CAPS. “So, why do so many of our congressional leaders today want to admit millions more immigrant workers to take jobs and depress wages when hardworking African-American and Hispanic American workers can’t find jobs? Have our leaders lost sight of Dr. King’s dream?”

Tom Coburn: “The only way to fix Washington is to have a Convention of the States & limit their power”

When asked last night about this new 1000 plus page spending bill and the fact that the Senate will vote on it before anyone gets a chance to read it, Sen. Tom Coburn told Mark Levin that you can’t prevent this stuff from happening because all we have is a bunch of career politicians who only care about getting reelected. He says the only way to fix Washington is for the states to convene a Convention of the States and limit their power, something he definitely supports.
