U.S. Senate hopeful Murray Sabrin, a professor at Ramapo College and one of four candidates competing for the chance to face Cory Booker this November, pounded away on the findings contained in the survey’s release.
Okay, so the Gallup Poll is out with some new numbers on Obamacare signups (or lack thereof) and the figures are revealing.
As you might expect, NBC is spinning the poll to place it in the best possible light for Obama proclaiming that Obamacare has helped as many as 9.9 million to get new health insurance. And the headline, stretches it further, shouting “Obamacare helped up to 10 million get insurance.”
But, remember — we’re talking about as many as and also up to here and those are obvious fudge words. And don’t assume that all of these people signed up through Obamacare. They didn’t.
When you dig into the story, here’s what you find:
Get ready for it people. The Democrats are gearing up their smokescreens in a desperate attempt to keep us focused on anything but the destruction they’ve caused. They don’t want to talk about the debt, or unemployment, or the economy. They definitely don’t want to talk about Obamacare! Heck, we aren’t even allowed to refer to it as Obamacare any more without offending someone. The Democrats are so desperate to distract us in 2014 that we can expect them to pull out all of their favorite arguments and narratives.
If Republicans talk about securing the boarder, the Democrats interpret that as…
Here’s more hard proof via NJ.com, where it’s being reported that 1,800 more Garden State families received cancellation notices last week:
The Affordable Care Act — the federal law that mandates everyone have insurance — effectively killed FamilyCare Advantage, a low-cost option for kids in New Jersey created six years ago for parents who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid and other subsidized programs but too little to buy on a policy on their own. The state program was the first of its kind in the nation.
With the Obamacare enrollment deadline only hours away, Save Jerseyans, it’s painfully clear to anyone watching that the grand experiment of socialized medicine is failing – in epic fashion – more quickly than even was anticipated by even the most ardent critics of the (Un)affordable Care Act.
We’re kicking off our Election 2014 Senate coverage by sharing my interview with Brian D. Goldberg, Save Jerseyans, a businessman originally from Monmouth County who made his money in the concrete business and who now hopes to bring private sector common sense to Capitol Hill.
He’s one of five GOP nominee hopefuls including former U.S. candidate and Reagan campaign staffer Jeffrey Bell, Monmouth businessman Rich Pezzullo, retired FBI agent Robert “Turk” Turkavage, and Ramapo Professor Murray Sabrin.
Former State Assemblywoman Barbara Wright (R-14), is backing Dr. Alieta Eck to replace Rush Holt in NJ12, Save Jerseyans.
“With massive changes to our healthcare system being implemented in Washington on an almost daily basis, many New Jersey residents may find themselves left behind when it comes to access, quality, and affordible healthcare,” said Asw. Wright in a release from the campaign. “The fact is no one knows more about the real issues facing physicians and patients today than Alieta Eck.”
Wright specifically lauded Eck’s work as a physician through the Zarephath Free Health Clinic (which she founded) as evidence that she’s be “a perfect fit for the district who has the right experience to deal with the healthcare challenges we are facing.”
That’s what Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) estimates based upon last week’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis, Save Jerseyans, which concluded that the United States could see 2.5 million fewer jobs by 2024 than it otherwise would’ve without Obamacare.
Some Presidents have used the State of the Union to rally Americans against a foreign threat. Others called on members of both major parties to unite to overcome a domestic challenge.
The dominant narrative of last night’s State of the Union address delivered by President Obama? A threat. He could’ve stopped after delivering this excerpt without sacrificing one iota of substance:
“But what I offer tonight is a set of concrete, practical proposals to speed up growth, strengthen the middle class and build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class. Some require congressional action, and I’m eager to work with all of you. But America does not stand still, and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”
Uplifting, right? While my fellow conservatives focus on the coercive elements of the President’s address, if we’re being honest, this commander-in-chief is hardly the first to use executive orders. What makes last night so remarkable, and the last five years so utterly sad and infuriating, is the fact that Barack Obama has already “acted” repeatedly in big, expensive and less-than-constitutional ways to “expand opportunity.”
Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ07) took the unusual step of offering a “prerebuttal” to President Obama’s sixth State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, Save Jerseyans, highlighting his work on the health care and energy fronts.
U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) rallied thousands of intrepid Pro-Life Americans on Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, bundled in large groups at the annual ‘March for Life’ which this year coincides with the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
Here’s the full text of his remarks:
Thank you for joining this extraordinary March—a magnificent celebration of God’s gift of life and a recommitment to defending and protecting women and children from the violence of abortion.
