On 8 Aug 2016 00:39:25 -0400, Bradley K. Sherman says...
In American history, we've never had a President
who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.


1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional
approval

In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama
had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in
Libya without Congressional approval.

In April 2014, Ralph Nader said that Obama should be impeached for his
actions in Libya.

2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton cronies - just like Bush did

In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected
KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as
much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department
had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of
using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.

Don't be fooled by the words "former subsidiary." These are the same
Halliburton cronies that Bush gave a no-bid contract to.

3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn't
have any

On November 15, 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Obama said that lobbyists

"... will not work in my White House."

However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his
administration. A list of them can be seen here.

4) Has close ties to Wall St., but pretends to support Occupy Wall St.

Although Obama claims to support the Occupy Wall St. movement, the truth
is that he has raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate
during the last 20 years. In early 2012, Obama held a fundraiser where
Wall St. investment bankers and hedge fund managers each paid $35,800 to
attend. In October 2011, Obama hired Broderick Johnson, a longtime Wall
Street lobbyist, to be his new senior campaign adviser. Johnson had worked
as a lobbyist for JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Fannie Mae, Comcast,
Microsoft, and the oil industry.

5) Broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay

Obama broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

6) Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like
Bush

While Senator, Obama voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill.
The bailout rewarded irresponsible and illegal behavior. It redirected
resources from more productive uses to less productive uses. It punished
the hard working taxpayers who had played by the rules and obeyed the law.
It created horrible incentives, and sent the wrong message. The bailout
was evil because it rewarded the bad people and punished the good people.
No society that does this can expect to remain free or prosperous. Instead
of bailing out these corrupt corporations, we should have let them cease
to exist, like we did with Enron.

7) Waged the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president, which
was the opposite of what he had promised

In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would
end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it's legal. Also in
2008, Obama said that he supported the "basic concept of using medical
marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other
drugs" and that he was "not going to be using Justice Department resources
to try to circumvent state laws."

However, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in
Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal.
Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in
Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal. In
July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San
Diego, California. Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana
facility in Covelo, California. Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted
raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas,
Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids
on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California,
and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal. In April 2012, the DEA
carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.

In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama's war against
medical marijuana went "far beyond anything undertaken by George W.
Bush." In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: "The president
campaigned on the promise that he'd stop federal raids on medical
marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that
Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the
Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three
years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration's crackdown
record." In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: "Obama has become more
hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S.
history." In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California)
said she had "strong concerns" about Obama's forced closure of five
medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi's congressional district. In April
2012, commenting on Obama's crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S.
Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, "I'm very disappointed...
They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton
administration."

In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against
Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA,
which claims to be the world's largest, and which claims to serve more
than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents
raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA,
which teaches people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal
agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500
patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration
filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their
buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama
administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal
action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months
of 2012, the DEA shut down 40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado,
all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law.

In April 2013, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Los
Angeles, California. Also in April 2013, the DEA raided a medical
marijuana dispensary in San Diego, California. In July 2013, the DEA
conducted multiple medical marijuana raids in Washington state, including
the cities of Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle. In August 2013, the DEA raided
People's Choice Alternative Medicine, a medical marijuana facility in Ann
Arbor, Michigan. In October 2013, the DEA raided 28 medical marijuana
facilities in Michigan. In November 2013, the DEA raided 12 medical
marijuana facilities in Denver, Colorado.

In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama's youth, he often smoked
large quantities of recreational marijuana. Obama's marijuana smoking
wasn't even medical - it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large
scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple
sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from
their doctors, from using their prescription medicine - how cold hearted
can a person be?

8) Nominated a six-time tax cheater to head the government agency that
enforces the tax laws

Obama nominated Timothy Geithner, a repeat tax cheater, to head the
government agency that enforces the tax laws.

Prior to his nomination, Geithner had:

1) Illegally failed to pay more than $34,000 in social security and
medicare taxes

2) Illegally declared the cost of his children's summer camp as a form of
day care.

3) Illegally failed to pay the early withdrawal penalty when he took money
out of his retirement plan

4) Illegally declared non-eligible items as a charitable deduction

5) Illegally declared something which was ineligible as a small business
deduction

6) Illegally declared utility expenses which had actually been for his
personal use

9) Gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about
it

Obama signed a "stimulus" bill that spent money on bonuses for AIG
executives. Prior to signing this bill, Obama had said, "when I'm
president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending
money unwisely." However, after reading "line by line" and signing the
"stimulus" bill that protected the AIG bonuses, Obama pretended to be
shocked and outraged at the bonuses, and said, "Under these circumstances,
it's hard to understand how derivative traders at A.I.G. warranted any
bonuses at all, much less $165 million in extra pay... How do they
justify this outrage to the taxpayers who are keeping the company
afloat?" and also said that he would "pursue every single legal avenue to
block these bonuses."

10) Expanded Bush's unconstitutional government faith based programs

Obama expanded the federal government's faith based programs which had
been started by President George W. Bush.

11) Supported Bush's unconstitutional Patriot Act

In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act.

12) Increased the national debt more in one term than Bush did in two

The national debt increased more during Obama's first three years and two
months than it did during all eight years of George W. Bush's presidency.

13) Agrees with Bush's support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention
of U.S. citizens without filing any charges

In December 2011, ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero criticized
Obama for signing a bill that gave the U.S. government the power to
indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any
trial taking place.

14) Agrees with Bush's support of unconstitutional, warrantless
wiretapping

President Obama has defended warrantless wiretapping.

15) Avoided prosecution of Wall. St criminals

Although Obama had promised to prosecute Wall St. criminals, during his
entire first term, his administration did not file any criminal charges
against any of the top financial executives.

16) Had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process

Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process.

The ACLU accused Obama of violating the U.S. Constitution for doing this.

U.S. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) said that Obama's actions might be an
impeachable offense.

Ralph Nader wrote that Obama

"has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as
secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody,
anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be
engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely
defined as anti-U.S. security."

17) Ordered private company to fire 1,000 employees

In 2011, after Boeing had hired 1,000 new employees to work at its new
factory in South Carolina, the Obama administration ordered Boeing to shut
down the factory, because the factory was non-union.

18) Stole money from retired teachers and police officers

During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and
more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured
creditors worse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors
were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana.

Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law,
wrote of this:

"Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking
of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which
should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional grounds."

Todd Zywicki, Professor of Law at George Mason University School of Law,
wrote that Obama's treatment of secured creditors was

"dangerous to the rule of law."

The Economist wrote that Obama's actions could

"establish a terrible precedent. Bankruptcy exists to sort legal claims on
assets. If it becomes a tool of social policy, who will then lend to
struggling firms in which the government has a political interest?"

Francis Cianfrocca, the CEO of Bayshore Networks, wrote that Obama's
actions were

"an astonishingly reckless abrogation of contract law that will introduce
a new level of uncertainty into business transactions at all levels, and
make wealth generation more difficult going forward... An extraordinary
uncertainty has been created when the most powerful man in the world can
rewrite contracts and choose winners and losers in private negotiations as
he sees fit. Since this is an unquantifiable uncertainty, and not a
quantifiable risk, its effect on business and investor confidence will be
large and unpredictable. As in the 1930s, a time when government also
cavalierly rewrote private contracts, the prudent approach for business
will be to invest minimally and wait for another administration."

19) Supported release of convicted mass murderer

In 2010, Obama supported releasing Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-
Megrahi (who had been convicted of murdering 270 people) from prison.

20) Illegally put thousands of guns into hands of criminals

In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun
storeowners to illegally sell thousands of guns to criminals.

U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with one of these guns.

The murderer was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but his accomplices,
Eric Holder and Barack Obama, haven't even been arrested or charged.

21) Fired Inspector General for discovering that Obama's friend had
embezzled government funds

In June 2009, Obama fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin, after Walpin
accused Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, an Obama supporter, of misuse of
AmeriCorps funding to pay for school-board political activities. In a
letter to Congress, the White House said that Walpin was fired because he
was "confused, disoriented, unable to answer questions and exhibited other
behavior that led the Board to question his capacity to serve." A
bipartisan group of 145 current and former public officials, attorneys,
and legal scholars signed a letter that was sent to the White House, which
defended Walpin, said the criticisms of him were not true, and said that
his firing was politically motivated. The letter can be read here.

22) Lied about putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN

Although Obama had made a campaign promise to have all of the health care
reform negotiations broadcast on C-SPAN, he broke that promise after he
was elected.

The secrecy of these negotiations was so strong that U.S. Congresswoman
and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said, "We have to
pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

23) Lied about letting people keep their health insurance

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

"No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the
American people... If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to
keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter
what."

Also before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

"Here is a guarantee that I've made. If you have insurance that you like,
then you will be able to keep that insurance."

However, after Obamacare was passed, the Congressional Budget Office said
that the law would cause seven million people to lose their employer
provided insurance.

After Obamacare was passed, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East
announced that it would drop health insurance for the children of more
than 30,000 low-wage home attendants. Mitra Behroozi, executive director
of benefit and pension funds for 1199SEIU stated

"... new federal health-care reform legislation requires plans with
dependent coverage to expand that coverage up to age 26... meeting this
new requirement would be financially impossible."

Also, after Obamacare was passed, the Franciscan University of
Steubenville dropped its coverage in response to the law.

Universal Orlando dropped its coverage for part time employees in response
to Obamacare.

In addition, after Obamacare was passed, Forbes reported

"The House Ways and Means Committee has released a new report that sheds
light onto how Obamacare incentivizes companies to dump their workers onto
the new law's subsidized exchanges."

Also after Obamacare was passed, MSN reported

"The Affordable Care Act mandate most commonly known as Obamacare has some
tight stipulations that, CNN says, are forcing health care companies to
rip up most of their current plans and draft new ones that comply.
According to a University of Chicago study, just about half of the
individual health care plans currently on the market won't cut it once key
provisions of the Affordable Care Act kick in next year."

Furthermore, it was reported that Obamacare would cause 58,000 Aetna and
UnitedHealth Group customers in California to lose their insurance.

In response to Obamacare, some employers have dropped coverage for their
employees' spouses. In August 2013, it was reported that UPS had announced
that it would be dropping 15,000 spouses of its employees from its health
insurance, and that it had cited Obamacare as the reason it was doing
this.

The chain of Wegmans supermarkets cancelled the policies of its part time
employees in response to Obamacare.

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter
to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare

"will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits... these
restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable... we can
no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act
that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with
millions of other hardworking Americans"

In August 2013, it was reported that 106,000 New Jersey citizens would
lose their health insurance because of Obamacare.

In September 2013, IBM announced that it would be switching 110,000 of its
retirees from their current IBM-provided health insurance to the Obamacare
exchanges.

In September 2013, Trader Joe's announced that, in response to Obamacare,
it would stop providing insurance to its part time employees.

In October 2013, it was reported that at least 146,000 people in Michigan
would be losing their insurance because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that Florida Blue would be dropping
300,000 customers because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that 491,977 individual insurance plans
in California would be canceled because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that, in response to Obamacare, Home
Depot would stop providing insurance to its part time employees.

In October 2013, it was reported that Obamacare was forcing CareFirst
BlueCross BlueShield to cancel the insurance of 76,000 people in Virginia,
Maryland, and Washington, D.C., because their policies did not meet the
minimum requirements of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that hundreds of thousands of people in
Washington state would be losing their insurance because of Obamacare.

In November 2013, it was reported that nearly nearly 250,000 people in
Colorado would lose their insurance because of Obamacare.

In January 2014, it was reported that, in response to Obamacare, Target
was planning to stop offering insurance to its part time employees.

24) Lied about the cost of Obamacare

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama promised

"I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits - either now or
in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now
or in the future, period. And to prove that I'm serious, there will be a
provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending
cuts if the savings we promised don't materialize."

However, after Obama signed it, the Washington Post reported that it would
add more than $340 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade.

In March 2012, the Congressional Budget Office said that over the next
decade, Obamacare would cost twice as much as what Obama had promised.

In May 2013, it was reported that Obamacare's program for high risk
patients was more expensive than what Obama had promised.

25) Gave tax dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, and falsely
claimed the money was for "green energy"

In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming
that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those
4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the
company's shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to
Obama's campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on
lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White
House officials.

It was also revealed that the Obama administration had already been aware
of Solyndra's financial troubles. For example, according to the company's
security filings in 2009, the company had been selling its product for
less than the cost of production. In 2010, Obama visited the Solyndra
factory and cited it as a role model for his "stimulus" program, saying
"It's here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a
brighter and more prosperous future." The Washington Post wrote of this,
"Administration officials and outside advisers warned that President Obama
should consider dropping plans to visit a solar startup company in 2010
because its mounting financial problems might ultimately embarrass the
White House." Solyndra was a private company, but had been planning to use
its government loans as a means of going public - so when Obama knowingly
overstated the company's condition in order to help his friends at
Solyndra, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart had been sent to
prison for breaking.

In September 2011, federal agents visited the homes of Brian Harrison, the
company's CEO, and Chris Gronet, the company's founder, to examine
computer files and documents. Also in September 2011, the U.S. Treasury
Department launched an investigation.

On September 13, 2011, the Washington Post reported on emails which showed
that the Obama administration had tried to rush federal reviewers to
approve the loan so Vice President Joe Biden could announce it at a
September 2009 groundbreaking for the company's factory. The company was a
hallmark of President Obama's plan to support clean energy technologies.

The New York Times reported that government auditors and industry analysts
had faulted the Obama administration for failing to properly evaluate the
company's business proposals, as well as for failing to take note of
troubling signs which were already evident. In addition, Frank Rusco, a
program director at the Government Accountability Office, had found that
the preliminary loan approval had been granted before officials had
completed the legally mandated evaluations of the company.

The New York Times quoted Shyam Mehta, a senior analyst at GTM Research,
as saying "There was just too much misplaced zeal at the Department of
Energy for this company." Among 143 companies that had expressed an
interest in getting a loan guarantee, Solyndra was the first one to get
approval. During the period when Solyndra's loan guarantee was under
review, the company had spent nearly $1.8 million on lobbying. Tim Harris,
the CEO of Solopower, a different solar panel company which had obtained a
$197 million loan guarantee, told the New York Times that his company had
never considered spending any money on lobbying, and that "It was made
clear to us early in the process that that was clearly verboten... We
were told that it was not only not helpful but it was not acceptable."

The Washington Post reported that Solyndra had used some of the loan money
to purchase new equipment which it never used, and then sold that new
equipment, still in its plastic wrap, for pennies on the dollar. Former
Solyndra engineer Lindsey Eastburn told the Washington Post, "After we got
the loan guarantee, they were just spending money left and right...
Because we were doing well, nobody cared. Because of that infusion of
money, it made people sloppy."

On September 29, 2011, the Washington Post reported that the Obama
administration had continued to allow Solyndra to receive taxpayer money
even after it had defaulted on its $535 million loan.

On October 7, 2011, The Washington Post reported that newly revealed
emails showed that Energy Department officials had been warned that their
plan to help Solyndra by restructuring the loan might be illegal, and
should be cleared with the Justice Department first. However, Energy
Department officials moved ahead with the restructuring anyway, with a new
deal that would repay company investors before taxpayers if the company
were to default. The emails showed concerns within the Obama
administration about the legality of the Energy Department's actions. In
addition, an Energy Department "stimulus" adviser, Steve Spinner, had
pushed for the loan, despite having recused himself because his wife's law
firm had done work for the company.

In January 2012, CBS News reported that Solyndra had thrown millions of
dollars worth of brand new glass tubes into garbage dumpsters, where they
ended up being shattered. Solyndra told CBS that it had conducted an
exhaustive search for buyers of the glass tubes, and that no one had
wanted them. However, CBS discovered that Solyndra had not offered the
glass tubes for sale at either one of its two asset auctions that took
place in 2011. In addition, David Lucky, a buyer and seller of such
equipment, told CBS that he would have bought the tubes if he had had a
chance to do so. Greg Smestad, a solar scientist who had consulted for the
Department of Energy, also agreed that the tubes had value, and had asked
Solyndra to donate any unwanted tubes to Santa Clara University. Smestad
stated, "That really makes me sad... Those tubes represent intellectual
investment. These could have had a better value to do public good. I think
they owed the U.S. taxpayer that."

Solyndra was not the only "green energy" company involved in this type of
fraud. After Obama gave Raser Technologies $33 million to build a power
plant, the company declared bankruptcy, and owed $1.5 million in back
taxes. After Obama gave Abound Solar, Inc. a $400 million loan guarantee
to build photovoltaic panel factories, the company halted production and
laid off 180 employees. After Obama gave Beacon Power a $43 million loan
guarantee to build green energy storage, the company filed for bankruptcy.
After Obama approved $2.1 billion in loan guarantees for Solar Trust of
America so it could build solar power plants, the company filed for
bankruptcy.

In April 2012, CBS News reported that Solyndra had left a substantial
amount of toxic waste at its abandoned facility in Milpitas, California.
In May 2014, it was reported that the building in Longmont, Colorado that
had been abandoned by Abound Solar in 2012 was still contaminated with
cadmium, a toxic metal which can cause cancer.

Although Obama stated that all of the "green energy" companies that
received taxpayer money were chosen "based solely on their merits," the
truth is that 71% of these grants and loans went to Obama donors and
fundraisers, who raised $457,834 for his campaign, and were later approved
for grants and loans totaling more than $11 billion. By November 2011, the
Energy Department's inspector general had begun more than 100 criminal
investigations related to Obama's "stimulus." Although an "independent"
review said that Obama had not done anything wrong, it was later reported
that Herbert M. Allison Jr., the person who had conducted this
"independent" review, donated $52,500 to Obama's campaign.

26) Had "off the record" meetings with lobbyists

In June 2010, the New York Times reported that Obama administration
officials had held hundreds of meetings with lobbyists at coffee houses
near the White House, in order to avoid the disclosure requirements for
White House visitors, and that these meetings "reveal a disconnect between
the Obama administration's public rhetoric - with Mr. Obama himself
frequently thrashing big industries' 'battalions' of lobbyists as enemies
of reform - and the administration's continuing, private dealings with
them."

27) Falsely claimed to believe in public education

Although Obama said, "We need to uphold the ideal of public education," he
expressed his true opinion of America's public education system by sending
his own children to private schools while living in Chicago and Washington
D.C.

28) Falsely promised that Obamacare would give people "the same kind of
insurance that Senator McCain and I enjoy"

In 2008, Obama said:

"If you don't have health insurance, you're going to be able to buy the
same kind of insurance that Senator McCain and I enjoy as federal
employees."

However, the New York Times reported:

"No patient gets closer medical attention than the president of the United
States. Wherever he goes, a doctor, nurse or paramedic trails a few
footsteps behind, ready for any medical need. It is the ultimate in
concierge medicine."

29) Shut down Amish farm

In February 2012, Obama shut down an Amish farm for selling unpasteurized
milk across state lines, even though the customers were happy with what
they were buying.

30) Rewarded his fundraisers by giving them federal jobs

Although Obama had promised to have "the most sweeping ethics reform in
history," and had often criticized the role of money in politics, the
truth is that after he was elected, he gave administration jobs to more
than half of his 47 biggest fundraisers.

31) Ignored constitutional requirements for appointees

In February 2009, U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) expressed
concern that Obama's dozens of czars might violate the U.S. Constitution,
because they were not approved by the U.S. Senate. U.S. Senator Russ
Feingold (D-Wisconsin) expressed a similar concern in September 2009.

32) Gave tax dollars to corrupt private contractors to build 504 units of
mice infested, slum housing, with backed up sewage

While Obama was a state Senator in Illinois, he used tax dollars to build
504 units of slum housing, which had mice and backed up sewage. Federal
inspectors graded the condition of the housing so bad that the buildings
faced demolition.

33) Used tax dollars to glorify murderers

The Obama administration spent $1.6 million to restore graffiti that
glorified communist murderers Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.

34) Falsely claimed that the U.S. Supreme Court had never overturned any
laws that had been passed by Congress

Despite having taught constitutional law at one of the most prestigious
law schools in the country, in April 2012 Obama falsely claimed that the
U.S. Supreme Court had never overturned any laws that had been passed by
Congress.

35) Supported new bailouts for speculators who caused housing bubble

In March 2012, Obama announced a new set of bailouts for speculators who
had caused the housing bubble.

36) Spent $205,075 on a shrubbery which nurseries sell for $16

During one of Obama's "stimulus" projects, $205,075 of combined federal
and local government funding was spent to relocate and care for a single
specimen of Arctostaphylos franciscana, a shrubbery which nurseries sell
for $16.

music of Miles Davis

Obama's administration funded a study to see whether or not rats'
enjoyment of the music of Miles Davis was increased when the rats were
high on cocaine.

38) Tried to outlaw family farms

In April 2012, the Obama administration proposed new regulations which
would prohibit farm children under 18 from working at grain elevators,
silos, feed lots, stockyards, and livestock auctions, as well as from
storing, marketing and transporting farm product raw materials. Critics
claimed that this would prevent children from the common practice of
working on their friends' and relatives' farms, and that farm children did
not need "help" from a community organizer in Washington.

39) Auctioned off ambassadorship to the Netherlands

In April 2012, Obama nominated Timothy Broas, who had "bundled" more than
$500,000 for Obama's 2012 campaign, to be U.S. ambassador to the
Netherlands.

40) Claimed that written tests are a form of "racial discrimination"

The Obama administration accused fire and police departments in
Jacksonville, Florida, New York City, and Dayton, Ohio of "racial
discrimination" because they required potential firefighters and police
officers to take a written test. Ten real examples of these "racist"
questions from the New York test can be read here.

41) Made the TSA even more abusive and ridiculous than it had been under
Bush

The Obama administration gave a very invasive patdown to a three-year-old
boy in a wheelchair, which caused the boy to tremble in fear. The Obama
administration gave an aggressive patdown to a seven-year-old girl with
cerebral palsy. The Obama administration said that a four-year-old girl
was a "high security threat." The Obama administration placed an 18-month-
old girl on its no fly list. The Obama administration gave a patdown to
Henry Kissinger. The Obama administration forced a 95-year-old cancer
patient to remove her adult diaper and fly without it. The Obama
administration ripped open the urostomy bag of a 61-year-old bladder
cancer survivor, and forced him to fly covered in his own urine. The Obama
administration harassed a sick 3-year-old boy, and caused him to miss his
flight.

42) Illegally demanded monetary payment for Freedom of Information Act
request

The Obama administration demanded that the Goldwater Institute pay
$78,935.80 before it would share public records which it had requested
under the Freedom of Information Act.

43) Fined public school $15,000 for selling soda

The Obama administration fined a high school $15,000 for selling soda to
students during lunch.

44) Conducted dangerous and illegal scientific experiments on sick people
without always informing them of the risks

In 2010 and 2011, the Obama administration conducted illegal scientific
experiments which exposed people to dangerous levels of toxins. Some of
these people had asthma and heart problems, and were exposed to levels of
pollutants as high as 50 times what the EPA considers to be safe . The
government did not always tell them about the risks of cancer and death.

45) Closed the Vietnam Memorial for seven hours on Memorial Day so he
could have his picture taken

On Memorial Day 2012, Obama prevented Vietnam veterans and their friends
and families from visiting the Vietnam Memorial for seven hours so he
could have his picture taken.

46) Had the government take 60.8% ownership of General Motors

In July 2009, Obama had the government take 60.8% ownership of General
Motors, and fired the CEO.

47) Forced banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay
them back, and collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself for doing so

While working as a "community organizer," Obama filed lawsuits which
forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes.
As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages.
As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.

Then in April 2013, during Obama's second term as President, the
Washington Post reported that President Obama was still pressuring banks
"to make home loans to people with weaker credit."

48) Stole money from retired Delphi employees

In 2009, Obama eliminated the pensions of 20,000 retired Delphi employees.

49) Used taxpayer money to buy soda for $3.40 per can

During Obama's presidency, the federal government repeatedly purchased
soda for a cost of $3.40 per can. Obama did not express any desire to
switch to a cheaper seller, such as Costco, amazon.com, or Wal-Mart - or
to an even still cheaper seller such as a wholesaler. Instead, Obama
repeatedly forced taxpayers to pay these outrageous prices for soda.

50) Paid $7 million per household to connect people to the internet

Obama's "stimulus" paid to connect some households in Montana to the
internet, at a cost of $7 million per household.

Although Obama criticized Mitt Romney for his involvement with Bain
Capital, Obama hired Jeff Zients, a former consultant at Bain (and who had
an estimated personal wealth of $200 million) to be his budget director.

52) Broke promise to teen campaign volunteers

Obama had promised to his teen campaign volunteers that if they each spent
nine hours going door to door on Obama's behalf, he would invite them to
attend his speech of September 6, 2012. However, after the teens did the
volunteer work, Obama broke his promise. One of these volunteers, Madeline
Frank, age 16, of Charlotte, North Carolina, said of this "I've been
looking forward to this for a really long time. I am just feeling really
let down and like bummed. It was kind of my dream to see him speak, so
definitely really sad."

53) Falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President

Obama falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President.

54) Exempted wind farms from the penalties that other companies get for
killing birds

In May 2013, it was reported that Obama had fined oil and electric
companies for illegally killing endangered birds, but that he had never
fined wind power companies even though they had broken the exact same
laws.

55) Falsely claimed that he had never belonged to the New Party

Obama falsely claimed that he had never belonged to the New Party, which
is a third political party.

56) Supported punishing students based on their race instead of on their
behavior

Obama expressed support for a proposal which would punish students based
on their race instead of on their behavior.

57) Used "off the books" funding for military interventionism

In April 2009, antiwar activists who helped elect Obama accused him of
using the same "off the books" funding as his predecessor George W. Bush
when Obama requested an additional $83.4 billion from Congress for the
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - a provision which Obama had voted against
when he was a Senator.

58) Tried to silence criticism of auto-bailouts

The Obama administration pressured Ford Motor Company to stop airing a TV
ad that criticized Obama's bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler.

59) Dismissed charges of voter intimidation, despite video evidence

In May 2009, the Obama administration dismissed charges that had been
filed by the Bush administration against members of the New Black Panther
Party who had been videotaped intimidating voters and brandishing a
police-style baton at a Philadelphia polling station during the November
2008 election. In August 2009, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights
demanded that the Justice Department explain why it dismissed the charges.
In July 2010, J. Christian Adams, a former lawyer for the Justice
Department, testified before the Commission on Civil Rights that the case
was dropped because the Justice Department did not want to protect the
civil rights of white people.

60) Falsely claimed to support the second amendment

Although Obama stated, "I have always believed that the Second Amendment
protects the right of individuals to bear arms," the National Rifle
Association gave Obama a rating of 'F' based on his voting record.

61) Nominated a communist who said 9-11 was an inside job

In September 2009, Obama's green czar Van Jones resigned after it was
reported that he was a self described "communist" and had blamed George W.
Bush for the September 11 attacks.

62) Falsely said he would not raise taxes on the poor and middle class

On September 12, 2008, Obama promised:

"I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than
$250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax,
not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your
taxes."

However, less than three months into his Presidency, he broke that promise
when he raised the cigarette tax. Studies show that poor people are more
likely to smoke than rich people.

63) Falsely said he wanted to simplify the tax code, when he actually
wanted to make it more complex

Although Obama said that he wanted to simplify the tax code, his proposals
would actually add thousands of pages to the tax code.

64) Oversaw some of the world's worst increases in corruption

In December 2010, Transparency International reported that corruption was
increasing faster in the U.S. than anywhere else except Cuba, Dominica,
and Burkina Faso.

65) Falsely said "This is the most transparent administration in history"

In February 2013, Obama said, "This is the most transparent administration
in history."

However, that same month, ABC News White House reporter Ann Compton, who
covered Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, both Bushes, and Obama,
said "The president's day-to-day policy development... is almost totally
opaque to the reporters trying to do a responsible job of covering it.
There are no readouts from big meetings he has with people from the
outside, and many of them aren't even on his schedule. This is different
from every president I covered. This White House goes to extreme lengths
to keep the press away."

In July 2009, White House reporter Helen Thomas criticized the Obama
administration for its lack of transparency.

In October 2013, ABC News correspondent Ann Compton said that Obama was
the "least transparent of the seven presidents I've covered in terms of
how he does his daily business."

Also, this list contains a huge number of things that Obama has done which
contradict his statement.

66) Falsely claimed he would wait five days before signing bills

Although Obama had promised to wait five days before signing all non-
emergency bills, he broke that promise at least 10 times during his first
three months in office.

67) Falsely claimed "stimulus" spending would be transparent

Although Obama had promised that the website recovery.gov would list all
"stimulus" spending in detail, a 400 page report issued by the Government
Accountability Office stated that only 25% of the projects listed on the
website provided clear and complete information regarding their cost,
schedule, purpose, location and status.

68) Announced plans to send military to Australia

In November 2011, Obama announced that he would send 2,500 Marines to
Australia.

69) Falsely promised to accept public campaign financing and spending
limits

During the 2008 campaign, Obama broke his promise to accept public
campaign financing and the spending limits that came with it.

70) Tried to silence video on YouTube

In June 2011, Obama asked a Jewish singing group to remove its video from
the internet.

71) Rejected international help to clean up BP oil spill

After the BP oil spill, Obama rejected offers of cleanup help from Canada,
Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway,
Romania, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United
Nations.

72) Falsely said he opposed government waste, when he actually loves it

On September 22, 2008, Obama said, "I am not a Democrat who believes that
we can or should defend every government program just because it's
there... We will fire government managers who aren't getting results, we
will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use
technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency
across every level of government... The only way we can do all this
without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington
starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends." However,
Citizens Against Government Waste gave Obama a 2007 rating of only 10%,
and a lifetime rating of only 18%.

73) Nominated past frequent user of illegal drugs to keep illegal drugs
out of schools

In September 2009, it was reported that Kevin Jennings, Obama's Assistant
Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, had written
about Jenning's own past frequent illegal drug use in his 2007
autobiography.

74) Avoids firing aides who owe back taxes

In January 2012, it was reported that 36 Obama aides owed a combined total
of $833,000 in back taxes.

75) Used Abbott and Costello style economics as a basis for national
policy

In 2010, Obama gave $16.3 million to First Solar, a company that
manufactures solar panels, so the company could sell solar panels to
itself.

76) Sent U.S. troops to Africa

Obama sent U.S. troops to Uganda, Congo, South Sudan and the Central
African Republic.

77) Made secret plans for his second term

In March 2012, when Obama was talking to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev
and did not know that the microphone was turned on, Obama stated, "On all
these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved
but it's important for him to give me space... This is my last election.
After my election I have more flexibility."

78) Holds double standard for people who use crude and vulgar language
toward women

Concerned Women for America accused Obama of hypocrisy after Obama
criticized Rush Limbaugh for using crude and vulgar language to describe
Sandra Fluke, but Obama did not criticize Bill Maher (who had donated one
million dollars to an Obama PAC) for using the same kind of crude and
vulgar language to describe Sarah Palin.

79) Illegally gave Obamacare exemptions to unions that supported the
passage of Obamacare

Obama gave some organizations an exemption from some of the requirements
of Obamacare. Many of these organizations were unions that had supported
the passage of Obamacare, but now wanted exemptions from the very same law
that they wanted to force everyone else to obey. This reveals an extreme
level of hypocrisy among many of the supporters of Obamacare.

In addition, these exemptions are illegal, because the Constitution
requires the law to treat everyone the same.

The Washington Times wrote of this:

"Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A
government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the
rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those
with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads
to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of
law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is
tyranny."

"The now-familiar monthly trickling down of new waivers is, at best, a
tacit admission that Obamacare is a failure. So far, seven entire states
and 1,372 businesses, unions and other institutions have received waivers
from the law. The list includes the administration's friends and allies
and, of course, those who have the best lobbyists."

"More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union
members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12
percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more
than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many
cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your
health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem."

80) Defended Bush administration's unconstitutional, unwarranted use of
GPS device

In January 2012, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Bush
administration for having put a GPS tracking device on someone's car
without having a warrant, the Obama administration opposed the court
ruling

81) Opposes newspapers reporting the news

Obama spokesman Jay Carney criticized the Los Angeles Times for publishing
photographs of U.S. soldiers posing with corpses in Afghanistan.

82) Supported Bush administration for fining CBS for showing Janet
Jackson's breast

Obama came out in favor of the FCC's fining of the CBS TV network $550,000
for showing Janet Jackson's breast during the 2004 Super Bowl.

83) Allowed campaign contributors to bring lobbyists into White House

In April 2012, the New York Times reported, "Although Mr. Obama has made a
point of not accepting contributions from registered lobbyists, a review
of campaign donations and White House visitor logs shows that special
interests have had little trouble making themselves heard. Many of the
president's biggest donors, while not lobbyists, took lobbyists with them
to the White House... "

84) Falsely said that criminal background checks constituted "racial
discrimination"

In 2012, the Obama administration accused Pepsico of "race
discrimination" because it used criminal background checks to screen out
job applicants.

85) Was cited by nine states for committing 21 illegal acts

Attorneys General from nine states issued a report, titled "A Report on
Obama Administration Violations of Law," which cited 21 illegal acts which
had been committed by the Obama administration.

86) Tried to seize hotel because some of its customers had used illegal
drugs

The Obama administration tried to seize a mom-and-pop bed-and-breakfast
because some if its guests had used illegal drugs.

87) Falsely said his campaign was not funded by large donors

Although Obama has received many large campaign donations from corporate
executives and Hollywood celebrities, his spokesperson said that his
campaign was funded "not from huge donors at all."

88) Holds double standard for subsidizing solar power companies

Although Obama gave taxpayer money to numerous American solar power
companies, he placed a 30% tariff on solar panels imported from China,
because he was against the Chinese government giving subsidies to its own
companies.

89) Tried to create an administration full of tax cheaters

Obama nominated tax cheater Tom Daschle to be Secretary of Health and
Human Services. After Daschle said he didn't want the job, Obama then
nominated tax cheater Kathleen Sebelius for the same position. Obama
nominated tax cheater Nancy Killefer to be his administration's Chief
Performance Officer. Obama nominated tax cheater Hilda Solis to be the
Secretary of Labor. Obama nominated tax cheater Ron Kirk be the White
House Chief Trade Representative.

90) Hired a Communications Director who admires a mass murderer

Anita Dunn, Obama's White House Communications Director, said that one of
her favorite political philosophers was Mao Tse-tung, the Chinese dictator
who murdered tens of millions of innocent civilians.

91) Tried to replace science with political correctness

In July 2010, Charles Bolden, the administrator of NASA, said that Obama
had told him that the primary purpose of NASA was "to reach out to the
Muslim world."

92) Illegally made recess appointments when Congress was not in recess

In January 2012, Obama violated the Constitution by making four recess
appointments when Congress was not in recess. Recess appointments
themselves are constitutional, but only if they are made when Congress is
actually in recess.

In January 2013, a federal appeals court ruled that Obama's appointments
had violated the Constitution.

In May 2013, a second federal appeals court also ruled that Obama's
appointments had violated the Constitution.

In July 2013, a third federal appeals court also ruled that Obama's
appointments had violated the Constitution.

In June 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that Obama's appointments
had violated the Constitution.

93) Said the health insurance mandate was not a tax, but later told the
Supreme Court that it was

Before Obama's health care reform was passed, he said that the mandate was
not a tax. However, after it was passed, the Obama administration argued
in front of the Supreme Court that the mandate really was a tax.

94 ) Lied about being his "brother's keeper"

Although Barack Obama likes to cite the Bible phrase "We are our
brother's keeper," when his real life poverty stricken brother George
Obama needed $1,000 for health care bills, Barack Obama refused to pay it,
so conservative author Dinesh D'Souza paid it.

95) Punishes hospitals for saving the lives of patients with heart disease

Obama's health care reform contains a provision that reduces Medicare
payments to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates. Sunil Kripalani,
MD, a professor with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said of this,
"Among patients with heart failure, hospitals that have higher readmission
rates actually have lower mortality rates. So, which would we rather have
- a hospital readmission or a death?"

96) Supports guns for himself and his wife, but opposes them for everyone
else

On January 10, 2013, President Obama signed a bill that provides armed
guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives.

However, in 2004, when Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted
against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect
themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

97) Falsely claimed that he "cut spending by over a trillion dollars in
2011?

On "Meet the Press" on December 30, 2012, Obama said:

"I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011?

In reality, spending during that time period was not cut at all, and was
actually increased by $147 billion.

98) Practices environmental hypocrisy

In May 2008, Obama said, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we
want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just
expect that other countries are going to say OK."

However, just one week later, Obama was photographed exiting an SUV.

In addition, Obama keeps the White House thermostat turned up so high that
David Axelrod, Obama's senior adviser, said, "He likes it warm. You could
grow orchids in there."

Environmentalists criticized Obama for eating Wagyu beef, which was called
"the Hummer of beef."

Obama had a chef fly round trip from St. Louis to Washington D.C. so he
could make Obama's favorite pizza.

99) Pressured public schools to replace Catcher in the Rye with a book on
window insulation

The Huffington Post reported that Obama's education policies

"are increasingly worrying English-lovers and English teachers, who feel
they must replace literary greats like The Great Gatsby and Catcher in the
Rye with Common Core-suggested 'exemplars,' like the Environmental
Protection Agency's Recommended Levels of Insulation."

100) Approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to a Sharia dictatorship

Obama approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, which is a Sharia
dictatorship.

drones to kill U.S. citizens without a trial, and Obama would not let
people read those memos

In May 2014, Obama nominated David J. Barron to a seat on the United
States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Before that, when Barron
was an official in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, he
had written two memos arguing in favor of using drones to kill U.S.
citizens without a trial. When it was requested that these memos be made
public, Obama refused to do so.

702) In 2013, Obama released hundreds of illegal aliens who had been
convicted of violent crimes

In 2013, the Obama administration released hundreds of illegal aliens who
had been convicted of violent crimes. The violent crimes that they had

704) Illegally pressured banks to stop doing business with gun sellers

In May 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had imposed new
regulations on banks which pressured them to stop doing business with gun
sellers. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his
actions were illegal.

705) Illegally seized industrial hemp seeds

In May 2014, the DEA illegally seized industrial hemp seeds in Kentucky.

706) Falsely promised to end the problem of long waiting lists at Veterans
Administration hospitals

2008, he had not done anything to fix it during his first five years as
President.

709) Illegally ignored Judical Watch's Freedom of Information requests
regarding Fast and Furious

Obama illegally ignored Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information requests

list of "Pitfalls of Working With White People"

In May 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had given
$499,479 to Beyond Diversity Resource Center, a New Jersey organization
that published a list of 29 "Pitfalls of Working With White People." Some
of these "pitfalls" said that white people "ask stupid questions," "are
arrogant," "say something stupid," and "get too friendly too fast."

712) Obama's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau stopped conducting
employee evaluations because they were "racist"

In May 2014, it was reported that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
had stopped conducting employee evaluations because they were "racist."
The agency's new policy would pay all employees as if they had received
the highest score. This new policy will cost more than $5 million.

713) Fined Toyota $1.2 billion for the non-existent "problem" of
"unintended acceleration" after a government study proved that Toyota had
done nothing wrong

Beginning in 2009, there were media reports that Toyota cars had a
"problem" called "unintended acceleration." Allegedly, when drivers
stepped on the break, their cars would go faster instead of stopping.
However, this "unintended accelelarion" was happening far more often with
elderly drivers than with other drivers, which suggested that the problem
was caused by the driver hitting the wrong pedal, and not by some defect
in the car. In February 2011, a study by NHTSA and NAA proved that Toyota
was innocent. The study can be read here. U.S. Transportation Secretary
Ray LaHood said, "The verdict is in. There is no electronic-based cause
for unintended high-speed acceleration in Toyotas." However, despite
Toyota's innocence, Obama fined them $1.2 billion.

714) Proposed that Hawaii's legal system treat people differently
depending on their race

Daugaard proposed using state and private funds to keep Mount Rushmore
open, but the Obama administration did not allow this to happen. In
October 2013, National Review filed a Freedom of Information request on
this subject, but the Obama administration illegally ignored the 20 day

2014.

722) Fraudulently declared meadow jumping mouse "endangered" in order to
hurt ranchers

On May 24, 2014, Wikipedia's article on the meadow jumping mouse stated:

The meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius) is the most widely distributed
mouse in the subfamily Zapodinae. It may be found from the Atlantic coast,
to the Great Plains, as far north as the arctic tree lines in Canada and
Alaska, and as far south as Georgia, Alabama, Arizona, and New Mexico.

The meadow jumping mouse is currently not in any kind of danger. According
to the IUCN Red list, it is widely spread, common, and not declining
throughout most of its extensive range. It is also present in many
protected areas, and so does not have any major threats of it becoming an
endangered species.

However, on July 3, 2014, the Daily Caller reported:

Feds Declare Mouse Endangered, Family Might Lose Everything

A family's livestock enterprise in New Mexico is in danger of being
completely shut down now that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has
declared the meadow jumping mouse to be an endangered species...

The new regulations came into effect from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service last month, and as a result, the U.S. Forest Service is
considering installing 8-foot high fences to protect the mouse, which
would permanently prevent the Lucero family's livestock from grazing.

The family is already in possession of grazing permits from the federal
government, but the permits become irrelevant in the event that a new
species is declared endangered.

The Lucero family has had their livestock graze on the land in the Santa
Fe National Forest for more than a century, starting first with sheep, but

726) "Thugs Run L.A. Classrooms, Thanks To Obama Suspension Ban"

In July 2014, Investor's Daily reported:

Thugs Run L.A. Classrooms, Thanks To Obama Suspension Ban

As we predicted, the Obama regime's anti-suspension policy is backfiring.
Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating
them and effectively ruling their classrooms.

In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School
District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad
behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce
suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in
school and graduate.

Last year, Los Angeles schools became the first in the state to ban
"willful defiance" as grounds for suspension. As a result, their overall
suspension rate dropped to 1.5% from 8% in 2008.

Offenders just aren't being sent home at the same rate they were before
the federal order. And they're getting younger and bolder.

"Last week I was terrified and bullied by a fourth-grade student," a
teacher at an urban L.A. school said. "The black student told me to 'back
off, bitch.' I told him to go to the office and he said, 'No, bitch, and
you and no one can make me.'"

Complained another LAUSD teacher:

"Kids aren't even suspended for fights or drugs."

Even threats against teachers are ignored, as administrators' hands are
tied by the new policy. Knowing there won't be consequences, thugs can
control the classroom, disrupting lessons for other kids, including
minorities, who want to learn.

major game changer for the dairy industry in Wisconsin, and many other
states."

things that the wood does to the cheese... The wood provides a way of
controlling moisture, wood provides flavor, and the wood provides a stable
environment for the beneficial microbes to grow that allow the cheese rind
to develop."

"Wood has been used in cheese making in Europe for thousands of years,
from day one of cheese... it would severely hamper what we are doing at
this point. 85% of the product I manufacture is made to be aged on wood."

standard.

807) Helped Hamas obtain the construction materials that it used to dig
its terror tunnels

In August 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had helped
Hamas obtain the construction materials that it used to dig its terror
tunnels.

reduce their taxes.

813) Illegally planned to change the tax laws without approval from
Congress

Article I, section 7 of the U.S. Constitution states:

"All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of
Representatives"

President Obama took the following oath at both of his inaugurations:

"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of
President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability,
preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

You can see him taking the oath here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=KvEANPi1c6k

In addition, Obama has a Harvard Law degree.

Furthermore, Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago
Law School for twelve years.

However, in August 2014, Associated Press reported:

"Aiming to sidestep a logjam in Congress, the Obama administration is
looking for steps it could take on its own to prevent American companies
from reincorporating overseas to shirk U.S. taxes, officials said
Tuesday."

814) "US inspectors general say gov't has blocked access"

In August 2014, Associated Press reported:

US inspectors general say gov't has blocked access

Independent watchdogs of dozens of federal agencies decried on Tuesday
what they said were Obama administration efforts to delay or stall their
investigations.

A letter to Congress from a broad cross-section of inspectors general
cites specific instances in which watchdogs for the Justice Department,
Environmental Protection Agency and the Peace Corps said they were denied
timely access to documents and other information while doing their
investigations. The letter says other inspectors general have faced
similar obstacles, and that congressional action may be needed to ensure
cooperation from government agencies.

815) Lied about the reason U.S. corporations incorporate overseas

In August 2014, Obama said the reason U.S. corporations incorporate
overseas is that

"They're basically renouncing their citizenship and declaring they're
based somewhere else, just to avoid paying their fair share."

Despite Obama's claim, these corporations are still paying taxes to the
U.S. government on the profits that they earn in the U.S. The only tax
they are avoiding is the U.S. tax on the profits that they earn overseas.
But the U.S. is the only major country in the world that taxes overseas
profits.

816) Helped one corporation use a certain tax loophole, but later
criticized other corporations for using the exact same tax loophole

In 2009, the Obama administration helped Delphi, a U.S. corporation,
reduce its taxes by declaring it to be a British company. However, in
2014, Obama criticized other U.S. corporations for doing the exact same
thing.

817) Said we should pass an equal pay law, while ignoring the fact that
such a law has already been in place since 1963

In August 2014, Obama said we should pass a law that requires men and
women to be paid the same for doing the same work. However, such a law has
already been in place since 1963.

818) Bombed Iraq in August 2014, even though the Iraq War had allegedly
ended in December 2011

In August 2014, Obama bombed Iraq, even though the Iraq War had allegedly
ended in December 2011.

819) Lied about the reason he sent U.S. troops to Iraq

In June 2014, when Obama sent U.S. troops to Iraq, he said they would only
have an advisory role, and would not participate in combat. However, in
August 2014, he ordered those troops to bomb Iraq.

820) Lied about which President removed U.S. troops from Iraq

Obama repeatedly gave himself credit for the withdrawal of U.S. troops
from Iraq that happened in late 2011. However, in August 2014, he blamed
the troop withdrawal on Bush. I'm not going to say which of Obama's two
statements is true, and which is a lie. But one of them must be a lie.

821) Illegally tried to block a Freedom of Information release of the
video that shows Michael Brown committing theft and assault

On August 15, 2014, NRP reported:

[Ferguson Police Chief Thomas] Jackson said he had gotten numerous Freedom
of Information Act requests from the media to release the video. "I had to
release it," he said.

"I had been sitting on it and too many people put in FOIA requests for it
and I had to release it," he said.

On August 16, 2014, CBS News reported:

Feds opposed releasing Ferguson robbery video

Federal authorities opposed Friday's release of a surveillance video
showing a man resembling Michael Brown committing a robbery at a
convenience store in Ferguson, Mo., CBS News correspondent Bob Orr
reports.

The Justice Department asked Ferguson police not to release the video,
believing that it would roil the community further, and were able to
successfully prevent the video from being released Thursday, the U.S. law
enforcement official said.

Friday's release occurred over the objection of federal authorities, the
official said.

Here is the video that Obama illegally tried to prevent people from
seeing:


822) Obama sued Bank of America because it did exactly what he had told it
to do. Obama then gave some of the settlement money to left wing groups
that he had worked for.

While working as a "community organizer," Obama filed lawsuits which
forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes.
As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages.
As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.

Then in April 2013, during Obama's second term as President, the
Washington Post reported that President Obama was still pressuring banks
"to make home loans to people with weaker credit."

However, in August 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had
sued Bank of America for giving mortgages to people who could not afford
to pay them back, and the bank had agreed to pay $16.6 billion in order to
avoid further prosecution from the federal government.

In August 2014, it was reported that Obama had given some of the
settlement money from Bank of America to left wing organizations including
the National Council of La Raza, Operation Hope, and National Community
Reinvestment Coalition. These groups used to be known, collectively, as
ACORN. In the past, these organizations had pressured banks to give
mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back.

In addition, Obama had worked with ACORN in the past. Obama had
represented them in a lawsuit where they tried to get Illinois to adopt a
"motor-voter" law. On top of that, Obama had taught leadership training
sessions for ACORN. Also, Obama had worked as an organizer for Project
Vote, an ACORN offshoot. Furthermore, Obama had been on the board of
directors of the Woods Fund when it gave ACORN $75,000 in 2001, and
$70,000 in 2002. Finally, during the 2008 primary campaign, Obama's
campaign had given Citizens Services Inc., an ACORN affiliate, more than
$800,000 for "get out the vote" efforts.

823) 47 out of 73 Inspectors General wrote a letter to Congress

829) Obama's so-called "recovery" actually hurt blacks, women, and the
poor

In August 2014, the Wall St. Journal wrote:

If the Obama recovery had been as strong as the average of the previous 10
postwar recoveries, 13.9 million more Americans would be working today and
the average real per capita income of every man, woman and child in
America would be $6,308 higher.

But the real scorecard on the Senate Democrats elected in 2008 is in the
Census Bureau's Current Population Survey data. While all Democrats
claimed to be champions of the middle class and defenders of minorities
and women, census data show how their program did not live up to their
campaign promises.

Since the Senate Democratic Class of 2008 took control, the average real
income of the poorest one-fifth of American families has declined every
year, falling to $15,534 in 2012 from $16,962 in 2008 (the 2013 data will
be released Sept. 16). The average real income of the lowest quintile of
Americans is now below the level it was in 1968, the year when the War on
Poverty began its spending surge.

The next-highest income quintile, often referred to as the working class,
has also experienced a continuous decline in real income since January
2009. The average income of these Americans has fallen 6.5% and is now
$1,182 lower than it was when President Reagan left office.

The third quintile-America's middle class-has seen its average income
decline to $62,464 from $65,672. More than half of this decline has
occurred since the recovery officially began in the second quarter of
2009.

Under the Obama administration, the median income of women has fallen more
during the recovery than it did during the recession, an unprecedented
economic failure in postwar America.

The real median income of African-American households has fallen by 9.5%,
more than any other major census classification.

830) Obama criticized local police for using the military gear that he had

power plant. After the plant began operation, it incinerated as many as
28,000 birds each year. During an early inspection, it was discovered that
the birds killed by the plant included "a peregrine falcon, a grebe, two
hawks, four nighthawks, and a variety of warblers and sparrows."

833) Illegally ignored a subpoena which had ordered the release of 1,300

of information on Operation Fast and Furious, even after he had been
subpoenaed to do so.

836) Set limits on how much milk and juice students could drink at school
cafeterias

Obama limited elementary school students to eight ounces of milk or juice
at school cafeterias, and limited middle school students to twelve ounces.

837) Forced school cafeterias to throw away more than one billion dollars
worth of perfectly good fruits and vegetables

Obama required that fruits and vegetables be placed on students' lunch
trays, even if the students did not want to eat them. The food that they
didn't eat was then thrown into the garbage. In September 2014, it was
reported that Obama had forced school cafeterias to throw away more than
one billion dollars worth of perfectly good fruits and vegetables.

838) Exempted his own children from the very same food rules that he
forced everyone else's children to follow

While Obama was busy forcing everyone else's children to obey a very
strict and very ridiculous set of food rules, he allowed his own daughter
to have bacon and eggs covered in a buttery sauce, with no fruits and no
vegetables.

839) Falsely claimed that his "Cash for Clunkers" would help the auto
industry

Although Obama claimed that his "Cash for Clunkers" program would help the
auto industry, it actually hurt the auto industry, because it encouraged
buyers to purchase vehicles that were less profitable than what they would
have purchased if the program had not been in effect.

840) 46% of doctors gave Obamacare a "D" or an "F"

with more than 200 calories, he allowed a White House vending machine to
sell honey buns with 590 calories.

844) Illegally transported two illegal aliens

in prison.

845) Falsely said it was "unlikely" that anyone from Africa with Ebola
would fly to the U.S. because the "necessary precautions" were being taken

On September 16, 2014, Obama said:

"First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts,
here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an
Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We've been
taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West
Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus
doesn't get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that
someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we've taken new measures so that
we're prepared here at home."

However, on September 19, 2014, just three days after Obama made the above
statement, the only thing that Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan
had to do to get past these "necessary precautions," was to lie on an
airport questionnaire. After Duncan lied, he was allowed to fly from
Liberia to Dallas, Texas.

846) Refused to answer reporter's question about whether or not the first
person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. was a U.S. citizen

On September 30, 2014, during a press conference, the Obama administration
refused to answer a reporter's question about whether or not an Ebola
patient who traveled from Liberia to Dallas, Texas, was a U.S. citizen.
Afterward, the Liberian government identified the patient as Thomas Eric
Duncan, a Liberian citizen.

847) Allowed people under "quarantine" for having had contact with an
Ebola patient to go to the store

Although the Centers for Disease Control had placed people who had come
into contact with Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan under "quarantine," it
allowed them to go to the store during their so-called "quarantine."

848) As President, Obama urged Congress to reauthorize the Export-Import
Bank and said it "pays for itself," after having previously referred to it
as "corporate welfare" during his election campaign

"corporate welfare." However, in 2014, he urged Congress to reauthorize
it, and said it "pays for itself."

856) Falsely said that a travel ban on people from Ebola infected
countries could make the Ebola outbreak worse

In October 2014, CDC Director Tom Frieden said that a travel ban on people

own administration

Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low."

859) Said you can give, but can't get, Ebola on a bus

"lack of transparency" and "the stupidity of the American voter"

In October 2013, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said:

"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score
the mandate as taxes. If CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scored the
mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it's written to do that. In
terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy
people are going to pay in - you made explicit healthy people pay in and
sick people get money, it would not have passed... Lack of transparency
is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the
American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical
for the thing to pass... .Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make
it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not."

In December 2009, when M.I.T. economics professor Jonathan Gruber wrote a
pro-Obamacare opinion piece for the Washington Post, he did not disclose
the fact that the Obama administration had paid him $392,000 to help write
Obamacare.

888) Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie about
Obamacare's Cadillac tax

In July 2009, Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie
about Obamacare's Cadillac tax.

889) Falsely said that he had never worked with Obamacare architect
Jonathan Gruber at the White House

Although the Obama administration said that Obama had never worked with
Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber at the White House, White House
visitor logs show that Obama and Gruber were together in the same room in
the White House for nearly four hours on July 20, 2009.

890) Nancy Pelosi gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs,
and hotels in her own Congressional district

Although Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California) voted for Obamacare, in
April 2011, she gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs, and
hotels in her own Congressional district.

891) Falsely said, "If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans,
we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."

In June 2009, Obama said:

"If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the
largest Muslim countries in the world."

However, at the time Obama made his statement, there were 57 countries
that had more Muslims than the U.S.

892) Illegally ignored Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information Request
regarding the FCC's plan to put government bureaucrats inside TV stations
and newspaper offices to monitor their activities

In November 2014, the Obama administration illegally ignored Judicial
Watch's Freedom of Information Request regarding the FCC's plan to put
government bureaucrats inside TV stations and newspaper offices to monitor
their activities.

893) Announced plans to illegally send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq in
November 2014, even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December
2011

In November 2014, Obama announced plans to send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq,
even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011.

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) said of this:

"I do not think president has the ability under current authority to
authorize 1,500 troops without Congress acting."

894) Falsely said he would not send U.S. troops to Iraq

In June 2014, Obama said he would not send U.S. troops to Iraq. However,
in November 2014, he announced plans to send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq.

895) In Obama's own words, his actions on illegal aliens mean that he is
"ignoring the law"

In September 2013, Obama said that if he allowed illegal aliens to stay in
the U.S. without approval from Congress, it would mean that

"... I'll be ignoring the law... "

However, in November 2014, Obama said he would allow up to five million
illegal aliens to stay in the U.S., even though he did not have approval
from Congress.

896) In Obama's own words, he has declared himself to be "emperor of the
United States"

In February 2013, when Obama was talking about what he could and couldn't
do for illegal aliens when Congress was not cooperating with him, he said:

"This is something that I have struggled with throughout my presidency...
The problem is, is that I'm the president of the United States, I'm not
the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are
passed."

However, in November 2014, Obama said he would allow up to five million
illegal aliens to stay in the U.S., even though he did not have approval
from Congress.

897) Falsely said "All we're saying is we're not going to deport you."

In Obama's November 2014 immigration reform speech, he said:

"All we're saying is we're not going to deport you."

However, Associated Press responded with the following:

"He's saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those
covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the
country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-
paying jobs."

898) Falsely said "... this summer, there was a brief spike in
unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border."

In Obama's November 2014 immigration reform speech, he said:

"... this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being
apprehended at our border."

However, Associated Press responded with the following:

"... it was more than a 'brief spike.' The number of unaccompanied
children apprehended at the border has been on the rise since the 2011
budget year. That year about 16,000 children were found crossing the
border alone. In 2012, the Border Patrol reported more than 24,000
children, followed by more than 38,800 in 2013. In the last budget year,
more than 68,361 children were apprehended."

899) Falsely said "... what I can guarantee is that we will have in the
first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm
promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible."

In 2008, Obama said:

"... what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an
immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm promoting. And I
want to move that forward as quickly as possible."

He broke that promise.

900) Obama used the Department of Homeland Security to buy thousands of
pairs of underwear for illegal aliens, even though none of them were
actually terrorists

Although the Department of Homeland Security was created to protect the
U.S. from terrorism, Obama used it to purchase thousands of pairs of
underwear for illegal aliens, none of whom were terrorists. This included
4,800 in size 2X-Large, 4,800 3X-Large 4,800 4X-Large, 3,600 5X-Large,
and 2,400 in size 6X-Large, which are for men who weigh as much as 500
pounds.

In American history, we've never had a President
who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.

1,001) Held a fundraiser in the living room of terrorist bomber and
communist Bill Ayers

In 1969, a guy named Bill Ayers co-founded a terrorist organization called
Weather Underground, whose founding document called for "world communism."

In 1969, Ayers set off a bomb in Chicago at a statue that was dedicated to
the city's police. At the time of the explosion, no one was close enough
to the statue to be killed. However, the explosion was so powerful that it
broke almost 100 windows.

On March 6, 1970, three members of Weather Underground, including Diana
Oughton (Ayers's girlfriend) and Terry Robbins (Ayers's close friend),
were killed when they accidentally, prematurely set off a bomb which they
were in the process of building, in their townhouse in the Greenwich
Village neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. The explosion was so
powerful that it destroyed the entire four-story townhouse.

In 1970, Ayers bombed the headquarters of the New York City Police
Department.

In 1971, Ayers bombed the United States Capitol building.

In 1972, Ayers bombed the Pentagon.

Although charges were filed against Ayers for these bombings, the charges
were later dropped because law enforcement agents had conducted wiretaps
and property searches without warrants.

In 1995, when Obama was running for state senator in Illinois, Obama held
a fundraiser in the living room of Bill Ayers's home.

1,002) After Eric Holder participated in a five day takeover of an
abandoned ROTC headquarters at Columbia University, Obama hired him to be
the country's highest ranking law enforcement official

In 1970, Eric Holder participated in a five day takeover of an abandoned
ROTC headquarters at Columbia University.

Afterward, Obama hired Holder to be Attorney General.

1,003) Used taxpayers' money to refurbish Muslim mosques in other
countries

In July 2011, it was reported that the Obama administration had used
taxpayers' money to refurbish Muslim mosques in other countries.

1,004) After Hillary Clinton stole $28,500 of furniture from the White
House, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In February 2001, it was reported that Hillary Clinton had stolen $28,500
of furniture from the White House.

Afterward, Obama hired Clinton to be Secretary of State.

1,005) After Hillary Clinton cheated on her taxes, Obama hired her to be
Secretary of State

In 1980, Hillary Clinton avoided reporting $6,498 of income from
commodities trading on her income tax form.

Afterward, Obama hired Clinton to be Secretary of State.

1,006) In her own words, Hillary Clinton, Obama's Secretary of State, said
that her own use of a private email account for official government
business had "shredded" the U.S. Constitution

In 2007, when Bush was President, Hillary Clinton said that the use of
private email accounts by members of the Bush administration "shredded"
the U.S. Constitution.

However, in March 2015, it was reported that when Clinton had been Obama's
Secretary of State, she herself had used a private email account to
conduct official government businesses. Clinton's emails were not archived
in official government records, even though such archiving is required by
federal law. The New York Times reported

Mrs. Clinton's exclusive use of personal email for her government business
is unusual for a high-level official, archive experts have said. Federal
regulations, since 2009, have required that all emails be preserved as
part of an agency's record-keeping system. In Mrs. Clinton's case, her
emails were kept on her personal account and her staff took no steps to
have them preserved as part of State Department record.

By using a private email account, Clinton was able to thwart record
requests that had been made by Congressional investigators in 2012
regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

In 2013, Clinton used her private email account to thwart a Freedom of
Information request by Nitasha Tiku, a reporter for Gawker, regarding
information about Sidney Blumenthal.

The New York Times reported that Clinton's use of the private email
account

protected a significant amount of her correspondence from the eyes of
investigators and the public

1,007) Falsely said he learned about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's
use of a private email account "the same time everybody else learned it
through news reports"

In March 2015, Obama said he had first learned about Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account

"the same time everybody else learned it through news reports."

However, the White House had actually been informed about Clinton's use of
a private email account in August 2014.

In addition, Obama himself had emailed Clinton at her private email
account.

1,008) The "most transparent administration in history" illegally ignored
Freedom of Information requests from Associated Press regarding
information on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

In March 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally
ignored Freedom of Information requests from Associated Press regarding
information on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

1,009) Gave H-1B visas to Southern California Edison so it could fire its
American employees and replace them with with foreign workers - the
company even had the nerve to order the American employees to train their
foreign replacements

Although the alleged reason for the H-1B visa program is to fill jobs that
Americans don't want to work at, in February 2015 it was reported that the
Obama administration had given H-1B visas to Southern California Edison so
it could fire its American employees and replace them with with foreign
workers. The company even had the nerve to order the American employees to
train their foreign replacements.

1,010) Loretta Lynch, Obama's nominee for Attorney General, falsely said
that illegal aliens have a "right" to work in the U.S.

Even though it is illegal for U.S. employers to hire illegal aliens, in
January 2015 Loretta Lynch, Obama's nominee for Attorney General, said:

"I believe that the right and obligation to work is shared by everyone in
this country, regardless of how they came here."

1,011) Proposed an illegal retroactive tax on corporate income held abroad

In March 2015, it was reported that Obama had proposed a retroactive tax
on corporate income held abroad. However, retroactive taxes are illegal,
as the U.S. Constitution prohibits the federal government from passing ex
post facto laws.

1,012) Even though it would be illegal, Josh Earnest, Obama's Press
Secretary, said Obama was "very interested" in raising taxes without
approval from Congress

Even though it would be illegal, in March 2015 Josh Earnest, Obama's Press
Secretary, said Obama was "very interested" in raising taxes without
approval from Congress.

1,013) Spent taxpayers' money to pay government employees to try to find
out how a picture of one of his daughters got on the internet

In January 2015, it was reported that Obama had spent taxpayers' money to
pay government employees to try to find out how a picture of one of his
daughters got on the internet.

1,014) Falsely said the Ferguson, Missouri police department was racist
because it stopped black drivers at a higher rate than white drivers,
which contradicted a report by Obama's own administration which said the
reason black drivers were stopped more often than white drivers was
because black drivers were more likely to break the traffic laws

In March 2015, Attorney General Eric Holder said the police in Ferguson,
Missouri were racist because they stopped black drivers at a higher rate
than white drivers.

However, a 2013 report by Obama's own administration said:

Seat-belt usage is chronically lower among blacks. If a law enforcement
agency aggressively enforces violations, police will stop more black
drivers.

In addition, in March 2015, Investor's Business Daily wrote:

... federal data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration show that blacks violate traffic laws at higher rates than
whites in every offense, including driving with an invalid license.

Also, in March 2015, the New York Post - citing statistics from the
federal government - wrote:

... blacks die in car accidents at a rate about twice their share of car
owners.

1,015) Falsely said the proposed Keystone XL pipeline "bypasses the United
States"

In February 2015, Obama said:

"I've already said I'm happy to look at how we can increase pipeline
production for U.S. oil, but Keystone is for Canadian oil to send that
down to the Gulf. It bypasses the United States and is estimated to create
a little over 250, maybe 300 permanent jobs. We should be focusing more
broadly on American infrastructure for American jobs and American
producers, and that's something that we very much support."

Afterward, the Washington Post responded with:

The crude oil would travel to the Gulf Coast, where it would be refined
into products such as motor gasoline and diesel fuel (known as a
distillate fuel in the trade). Current trends suggest that only about half
of that refined product would be exported, and it could easily be lower.

A report released in February by IHS Energy, which consults for energy
companies, concluded that "Canadian crude making its way to the USGC [Gulf
Coast] will likely be refined there, and most of the refined products are
likely to be consumed in the United States." It added that "for Gulf
refineries, heavy bitumen blends from the oil sands are an attractive
substitute for declining offshore heavy crude supply from Latin America."
It concluded that 70 percent of the refined product would be consumed in
the United States.

Enviromentalists dismiss IHS as a biased source, but the analysis mirrors
the conclusions of the State Department's final environmental impact
statement on the Keystone XL project. This is what is especially strange
about Obama's remarks, as he appears to be purposely ignoring the findings
of the lead Cabinet agency on the issue.

1,016) Proposed a new rule that would falsely define ditches, drains,
seasonal puddle-like depressions, intermittent streams, and ponds as
"navigable waters"

In February 2015, the EPA proposed a new rule that would falsely define
ditches, drains, seasonal puddle-like depressions, intermittent streams,
and ponds as "navigable waters."

1,017) "Why This Liberal No Longer Supports Universal Health Care: An Open
Letter to President Obama"

Melissa Klein lives in San Francisco, California. In February 2015, she
wrote:

Why This Liberal No Longer Supports Universal Health Care: An Open Letter
to President Obama

Dear President Obama,

I voted for you in both elections. I'm proud to call you our president. I
was a staunch supporter of universal health care. Thank you for following
through on your campaign promise. That you did so IS significant.

But I have to say, you've let us down in a big way. This health care
system blows.

For the past few weeks I've been dealing with this 1095-A issue. You see,
I never received it and as you know I need it to file my taxes. Being a
law abiding citizen and all, I typically like to file my taxes on time.

I called Covered California in January and was assured I'd get it soon.
But alas, it never arrived. So, I spent my entire afternoon (and part of
yesterday afternoon), on hold with different folks at Kaiser and Covered
California.

At first I wasn't worried. I mean, a) I'm insured. b) I have several
letters from Covered California congratulating me on being insured. c) I
have emails from Kaiser and Covered California confirming payment for
insurance. d) I have my credit card bill that also shows that I, in fact,
paid for insurance. And e) I'm insured!!!

My second interaction with Covered California on this issue was both
straightforward and unhelpful.

"If you didn't receive a 1095-A you have to fill out a dispute form and
FAX it to us."

I respond, "Ok, but I'm not disputing anything. I'm asking for the form
you're supposed to have sent me."

Alas, my logic seems illogical to the person on the helpline and she tells
me that her hands are tied and that nothing can be done until I submit a
dispute form.

I sheepishly ask, "Can I email it to you?"

"No, but you can fax it."

Of course I can FAX it. Cuz, we're in 2015. Who doesn't fax stuff?

Miraculously, I manage to find a fax machine and send over my dispute
form.

I call back today to make sure that they received my fax.

After being on hold for 30 minutes I'm told, "We'll let you know in 2
weeks if we received the fax. You'll get a letter in the mail."

So I ask again, "Can't you just tell me over the phone?"

"Nope, ya gotta wait for the letter."

I then ask what I think is a simple question. Shame on me. "Can you at
least tell me if a 1095 was ever generated?"

This is when things turn from bad to comical.

"Ma'am, it doesn't appear as though you're in our system for having
insurance in 2014. Are you sure you didn't imagine signing up through our
exchange?"

"I'm sorry ma'am but I think you're mistaken. You signed up through Kaiser
and Kaiser will send you the 1095."

Getting through to Kaiser took a mere 48 minutes. But who's counting? Once
someone finally picks up I'm told, "Oh yes, I see right here, you were
covered by us in 2014 through Covered California."

"But you need to talk to them about the 1095." Of course I do.

And so, I call Covered California back. I'm thrilled to inform them that I
didn't imagine signing up through the exchange and that Kaiser can,
without a doubt, confirm that I'm covered.

I'm then told, "Ma'am, you need to submit a dispute form."

"I've already done that," I say exasperated.

"Well, they'll figure it out within 60 days. Don't worry you'll still get
your taxes filed in time," The women replies matter of fact-ly.

"60 days?," I respond again, exasperated. "Actually, if you're telling me
I'll receive my form in 60 days I will have missed the deadline."

"Oh. Sorry about that. You'll have to file for an extension then. Is there
anything else I can help you with?"

1,018) After Senator Hillary Clinton gave taxpayer's money to someone who
donated to her foundation, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In January 2009, the New York Times wrote:

An upstate New York developer donated $100,000 to former President Bill
Clinton's foundation in November 2004, around the same time that Senator
Hillary Rodham Clinton helped secure millions of dollars in federal
assistance for the businessman's mall project.

Mrs. Clinton helped enact legislation allowing the developer, Robert J.
Congel, to use tax-exempt bonds to help finance the construction of the
Destiny USA entertainment and shopping complex, an expansion of the
Carousel Center in Syracuse.

After Clinton gave that taxpayers' money to someone who donated to her
foundation, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,019) After Hillary Clinton falsely said she was "under sniper fire,"
Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In March 2008, Senator Hillary Clinton said the following about a trip she
had made to Tuzla, Bosnia, when she was first lady in 1996:

"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind
of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our
heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

Afterward, PolitiFact wrote:

But that's not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows
Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a
child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker
also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton's comments, reporting that a review
of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats
to the First Lady.

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who covered Clinton on the Bosnia visit,
wrote of her memories of the trip: "To be sure, it was not the 'safest'
trip for a first lady to take: there were serious risks in traveling to
Bosnia, even for the president's wife under the vigilant protection of the
U.S. military. It took some guts for her to go. But I don't recall, and
did not note, any close calls on this trip with sniper fire or any other
dangers. "

Immediately after the speech that day, a reporter asked Clinton about
remarks from others on the trip who suggested the trip was for photo
opportunities rather than foreign policy and she stood by her account of
sniper fire. "There was no greeting ceremony, and we basically were told
to run to our cars. Now, that is what happened," she said.

The CBS News report can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
8BfNqhV5hg4

After Clinton told this lie, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,020) Misquoted the Quran to give the false impression that it did not
support murder

In February 2015, Investor's Business Daily wrote:

... while hosting last week's "Summit on Countering Violent Extremism,"
Obama recited a verse from the Muslim holy book like so: "The Quran says
whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind."

A beautiful passage - if only it were as he states it.

The Quranic verse the president quotes - 5:32 - actually condones killing
those who "murder" Muslims, "wage war against Allah" or spread "mischief
in the land."

Mischief is defined as "treason against Allah," and the very next verse -
5:33 - calls for guilty infidels to be beheaded. Obama glosses over all of
this in his version.

Here's the full text of the relevant verse (5:32), according to even the
watered-down translation of the Quran approved and distributed by American
Muslim groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Note the key section that Obama omits from his speeches:

"(I)f anyone slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading
mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people. And if
anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole
people. Then although there came to them our Messengers with clear signs,
yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the
land."

The hammer comes down in the next verse, 5:33: "The punishment of those
who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and
main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the
cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land:
That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in
the hereafter."

1,021) The "most transparent administration in history" refused to say
whether or not Hillary Clinton signed a form declaring that she had turned
over all work related emails when she quit her job as Secretary of State

In February 2013, when Hillary Clinton quit her job as Secretary of State,
she was supposed to sign a form OF-109, declaring that she had turned over
all work related records, including all work related emails. It is a crime
to lie on this form.

In March 2015, the Obama administration refused to say whether or not
Clinton had signed this form.

1,022) After Wal-Mart board of director member Hillary Clinton refused to
criticize Wal-Mart for waging war against unions, Obama hired her to be
Secretary of State

In January 2008, ABC News reported:

Clinton Remained Silent As Wal-Mart Fought Unions

In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986
and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer
waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store
workers.

Wal-Mart's anti-union efforts were headed by one of Clinton's fellow board
members, John Tate, a Wal-Mart executive vice president who also served on
the board with Clinton for four of her six years.

Tate was fond of repeating, as he did at a managers meeting in 2004 after
his retirement, what he said was his favorite phrase, "Labor unions are
nothing but blood-sucking parasites living off the productive labor of
people who work for a living."

Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton and other company officials often recounted
how they relied on Tate to lead the company's successful anti-union
efforts.

An ABC News analysis of the videotapes of at least four stockholder
meetings where Clinton appeared shows she never once rose to defend the
role of American labor unions.

After Clinton refused to defend unions against Wal-Mart's attacks, Obama
hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,023) The "most transparent administration in history" "set a new record
again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright
denying access to them"

In March 2015, Associated Press reported:

The Obama administration set a new record again for more often than ever
censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year
under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of
federal data by The Associated Press.

1,024) Illegally ignored a Freedom of Information Act request from the
ALCU regarding information about airport security

In March 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally
ignored a Freedom of Information Act request from the ALCU regarding
information about airport security.

1,025) One of Obama's professors from Harvard Law School said Obama was
"burning the Constitution"

In March 2015, Laurence Tribe, one of Obama's professors from Harvard Law
school, said:

"EPA possesses only the authority granted to it by Congress... Its gambit
here raises serious questions under the separation of powers... because
EPA is attempting to exercise lawmaking power that belongs to Congress and
judicial power that belongs to the federal courts... Burning the
Constitution should not become part of our national energy policy."

1,026) The "most transparent administration in history" exempted itself
from Freedom of Information regulations during the same week that was
supposed to be a celebration of the Freedom of Information Act

In March 2015, U.S. News & World Report wrote:

The Obama administration announced Tuesday it will ditch regulations that
subjected large portions of White House correspondence to public records
requests, a decision derided by transparency advocates who wryly noted it
was issued during a week celebrating open access to government.

The notice exempting the White House's Office of Administration from the
requirements of the Freedom of Information Act was contained in Tuesday's
Federal Register, reversing a three-decade-old policy during Sunshine
Week, the annual celebration of the FOIA law.

Anne Weismann, interim executive director of Citizens for Responsibility
and Ethics in Washington (CREW), says the step "makes mockery of the
administration's commitment to transparency, especially given that it's
Sunshine Week."

1,027) Falsely said his net neutrality plan would not allow any new taxes
to be placed on the internet

Before implementing its net neutrality plan, the Obama administration said
the plan did not allow for any new taxes to be placed on the internet.
However, after the plan was implemented, the Obama administration said
that such taxes were in fact made possible by the plan.

901) Emails prove that the Obama administration pressured CBS News to stop
airing reports by Sharyl Attkisson

On October 3, 2011, CBS News aired a story by Sharyl Attkisson which
showed that Attorney General Eric Holder had lied under oath regarding
Fast and Furious. The report can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=0JaDEShZIvQ

On October 4, 2011, Holder's top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, wrote the
following in an email to White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz:

"I'm also calling Sharryl's [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer.
She's out of control."

Schultz responded with an email that said:

"Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG."

Afterward, CBS made it harder and harder for Attkisson to do reports on
Fast and Furious, and she eventually quit her job at CBS.

902) Gave employers a $3,000 annual incentive, per employee, to hire
illegal aliens instead of U.S. citizens

Obamacare, when combined with Obama's November 2014 executive amnesty,
gives employers a $3,000 annual incentive, per employee, to hire illegal
aliens instead of U.S. citizens.

903) Falsely overstated the number of Obamacare signups by incorrectly
including dental subscribers

In November 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had
falsely overstated the number of Obamacare signups by incorrectly
including 380,000 dental subscribers.

904) Falsely said that his "Power Africa" plan had achieved 25% of its
goal during its first 17 months

In June 2013, Obama announced a new program called "Power Africa," with a
goal of building 10,000 megawatts of new electricity generation in Africa.
In November 2014, the organization claimed that it had reached 25% of that
goal. However, some of that claimed amount included electricity plants
that had already been built before the plan was created. Also, some of
that claimed amount included electric plants that had not been built at
all, which had merely been written down on contracts that had been signed
with the promise of getting built in the future.

905) Gave $100,000 of taxpayers' money to one of his campaign donors to
build an urban garden that never actually got built

When Obama was a state Senator in Illinois, he gave $100,000 of
taxpayers' money to Kenny B. Smith, an Obama campaign donor, to build an
urban garden that never actually got built. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote of
this:

"... what was supposed to be a six-block stretch of trees and paths is
now a field of unfulfilled dreams, strewn with weeds, garbage and broken
pavement."

906) IRS employees who did not pay their taxes were still eligible for
bonuses

In 2014, IRS employees who did not pay their taxes were still eligible for
bonuses.

907) Falsely said that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would be
"shipping Canadian oil to world markets, not to the United States"

In November 2014, Obama said that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would
be

"... shipping Canadian oil to world markets, not to the United States."

Afterward, PolitiFact responded with:

We asked several energy economics experts, and they believe that quite a
bit - if not most - of the Keystone XL crude oil will be bought and used
by American refineries.

"It's difficult to say with any certainty, but it is most likely that most
would be refined in the U.S.," said Kenneth Medlock, an expert in energy
economics at Rice University in Texas.

A recent State Department report argues that it would not be "economically
justified" for Canada to primarily export its Keystone XL oil to countries
other than the United States, when there are plenty of American refineries
to consume it.

Some independent refineries - particularly those in the upper Midwest, but
also in Texas - are in desperate need of crude oil, said Charles Ebinger,
a senior fellow in energy security at the Brookings Institution.
Currently, the refineries have to import crude from places like Venezuela
and Mexico - though it would be cheaper and better for overall energy
security to buy from a North American source, rather than pay high
transport costs.

On Nov. 17, TransCanada told Reuters, it "makes no business sense for our
customers to transport oil down to the U.S. Gulf Coast, pay to export it
overseas but then pay to transport millions of barrels of higher-priced
oil back to the U.S. refineries to create the products we rely on."

Ebinger added that many American refineries are geared to use heavy crude,
which is what Keystone would transport from Canada's tar sands.

908) Illegally obtained, and illegally released, confidential tax
information about the Koch Brothers

In August 2010, the Obama administration illegally obtained confidential
tax information about the Koch Brothers from the IRS. White House economic
advisor Austan Goolsbee illegally released this confidential information
to the media.

909) After three private companies did exactly what Obamacare told them
to do, the Obama administration sued them for violating the Americans with
Disabilities Act

Obamacare encourages employers to offer their employees financial
incentives to engage in healthy behaviors, such as quitting smoking,
losing weight, etc. However, in November 2014, it was reported that the
Obama administration had sued Honeywell International and two smaller
companies for doing exactly that. The Obama administration claimed that by
doing what Obamacare told them to do, they were violating the Americans
With Disabilities Act.

910) November 2014 Gallup poll showed that Obamacare made health care less
affordable, which is the opposite of what Obama had promised

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. In November 2014, the
Daily Caller reported:

Gallup: Peak Number Of Americans Delaying Medical Care Over Costs

One in three Americans has put off seeking medical treatment in 2014 due
to high costs, according to Gallup - the highest percentage since Gallup
began asking the question in 2001.

Thirty-three percent of Americans have delayed medical treatment for
themselves or their families because of the costs they'd have to pay,
according to the survey. Obamacare, of course, had promised that it would
help make health care more affordable for everyone, but the number of
people who can't afford a trip to the doctor has actually risen three
points since 2013, before most Obamacare provisions took effect.

The hardest-hit: the middle-class. Americans with an annual household
income of between $30,000 and $75,000 began delaying medical care over
costs more in 2014, up to 38 percent in 2014 from 33 percent last year;
among households that earn above $75,000, 28 percent delayed care this
year, compared to just 17 percent last year.

911) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber secretly told the Democratic
governor of Wisconsin that Obamacare would make premiums more expensive,
at the same time that Obama was telling everyone it would make them less
expensive

In November 2014, it was reported that in 2010, when Obama was telling
everyone that Obamacare would make premiums less expensive, Obamacare
architect Jonathan Gruber secretly told Jim Doyle, the Democratic governor
of Wisconsin, that Obamacare would make premiums more expensive.

912) Obama nominated the defender of a convicted cop killer to be the head
of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division

In 2014, Obama nominated Debo Adegbile to be the head of the Justice
Department's Civil Rights Division. Previously, Adegbile had worked as a
lawyer for Mumia Abu-Jamal, who had been convicted of murdering a
Philadelphia police officer. After Abu-Jamal had been sentenced to death,
Adegbile got the death sentence overturned.

913) Illegally made it easier for illegal aliens who were convicted of
domestic violence, sexual abuse, burglary, unlawful possession or use of a
firearm, drug dealing, and drunk driving, to stay in the U.S. after they
finish their prison sentence

In November 2014, Obama made it easier for illegal aliens who were
convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse, burglary, unlawful
possession or use of a firearm, drug dealing, and drunk driving, to stay
in the U.S. after they finish their prison sentence. Because Obama did
this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

914) After Palestinian terrorists murdered four Jews at a synagogue in
Jerusalem, Obama said, "too many Palestinians have died"

In November 2014, after Palestinian terrorists murdered four Jews at a
synagogue in Jerusalem, Obama said, "too many Palestinians have died."

915) As part of Obama's "stimulus," he gave google billionaires a $1.6
billion loan guarantee to build a solar power plant that only produced
half as much electricity as what they had predicted

Ivanpah is a solar power company owned by Google, BrightSource Energy, and
NRG.

In April 2011, as part of Obama's "stimulus," Obama gave Ivanpah a $1.6
billion loan guarantee to build a solar power plant.

In November 2014, when the plant was up and running, Associated Press
reported that it was producing only "about half of its expected annual
output." The California Energy Commission blamed this failure on "clouds,
jet contrails, and weather."

In November 2014, Ivanpah asked Obama for a $539 million bailout.

Google is owned by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. At the time they requested
this $539 million bailout, Page was the 19th richest person in the world,
with assets of $30.4 billion, and Brin was the 20th richest person in the
world, with assets of $30 billion.

916) Photographs from 2007 show Obama marching with and speaking to the
New Black Panther Party

These photographs from 2007 show Obama marching with and speaking to the
New Black Panther Party.

917) Refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for their
plot to commit murder and bombing

In a November 2014 undercover sting operation, the St. Louis police sold a
fake bomb to members of the New Black Panther Party, who thought they were
buying a real bomb. They tried to buy two additional bombs, but the EBT
card that they were using did not have enough money on it. They were
planning to murder Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson and St. Louis County
Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch, and bomb the Gateway Arch.

Normally, the federal government would have charged them with terrorism.

However, the Obama administration refused to charge them with terrorism,
or with plotting to commit murder and bombing. The only charges filed by
the federal government were for making false statements when they
attempted to purchase two 0.45 caliber pistols. The federal indictment
made no mention whatsoever of their plot to commit murder and bombing.

918) Refused to explain why he nominated a campaign fundraiser who knew
nothing about Hungary to be the ambassador of Hungary

In December 2014, Colleen Bell became the new U.S. ambassador to Hungary,
even though she had been unable to name even one strategic interest the
U.S. had with Hungary during her conformation hearing. When ABC reporter
Jon Karl asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest why Bell was given this
position, Earnest refused to answer. Bell had helped raise hundreds of
thousands of dollars for Obama's 2012 campaign.

919) Falsely said that letting illegal aliens stay in the U.S. "will help
secure the border"

In December 2014, the Obama administration released a fact sheet which
falsely said that letting illegal aliens stay in the U.S. "will help
secure the border."

920) Refused to pay Obamacare navigators for work that they had done more
than half a year earlier

In November 2014, it was reported that some Obamacare navigators had not
been paid for work that they had done at the beginning of the year.

921) Forced some people to buy an Obamacare policy even though they were
also enrolled in Medicare

In December 2014, it was reported that some people were being forced to
buy an Obamacare policy even though they were already enrolled in
Medicare. When these people tried to cancel their Obamacare plans, they
were unable to do so.

922) After police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown,
Obama ignored the testimony from seven black witnesses, and the forensic
evidence

On October 23, 2014, the Huffington Post reported:

Over a half-dozen black witnesses who have testified before a grand jury
deciding whether to indict the police officer who killed Michael Brown
have provided testimony that "largely supports" Ferguson Police Officer
Darren Wilson's account of events...

... forensic evidence showed that Brown's blood was on the gun... other
evidence was consistent with Wilson's account of the shooting...

Based on this testimony and evidence, a St. Louis County grand jury
decided on November 25, 2014, that it would not file charges against
officer Wilson.

When Obama expressed his disappointment with the grand jury's decision, he
made no reference to these "witnesses" or "evidence." The complete text of
Obama's statement can be read here.

In addition, after the grand jury announced its decision, the Obama
administration said that it would continue its own investigation of
officer Wilson.

923) For some families, Obamacare's "affordable" insurance can cost them
"almost a quarter of their family income"

In December 2014, NPR reported:

Don Benfield of Taylorsville, N.C., makes $11 an hour...

The situation only gets worse if Benfield decided to add his wife to his
employer policy. Adding her would nearly triple the annual cost, driving
it up to $6,200 a year, almost a quarter of their family income.

924) Illegally told employers that they could not dump their sick
employees onto Obamacare exchanges

Obamacare allows employers to dump their sick employees onto Obamacare
exchanges. However, in December 2014, the Obama administration told
employers that they were not allowed to do this. Because Obama made this
change to Obamacare without approval from Congress, his action was
illegal.

925) Illegally ordered for cash benefits to be given to illegal aliens

In November 2014, Obama ordered for cash benefits to be given to illegal
aliens. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action
was illegal.

926) Released 30,862 foreign criminals into U.S. cities and neighborhoods
during fiscal year 2014

During fiscal year 2014, Obama released 30,862 foreign criminals into U.S.
cities and neighborhoods.

927) Deported less than 1% of illegal aliens during fiscal year 2014

who were living in the U.S.

928) Falsely said "the good book says don't throw stones at glass houses"

In December 2014, Obama falsely said, "The good book says don't throw
stones at glass houses."

929) Illegally made it easier for illegal aliens to vote in U.S. elections

According to federal law, if an illegal alien with a child born in the
U.S. wants to apply to become a U.S. citizen, the illegal alien must leave
the U.S. and wait 10 years before their U.S. born adult child can sponsor
them for citizenship. If and when they eventually do become a U.S.
citizen, they would then be allowed to vote in U.S. elections. However, in
November 2014, Obama eliminated this 10 year waiting requirement. Because
he did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

930) "I'm an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family. Obamacare
has been far more frustrating than I'd ever dreamed."

In December 2014, the Washington Post wrote:

I'm an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family.

Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I'd ever dreamed.

By Catherine Keefe

December 10, 2014

Obamacare brought us new health insurance options, but cost us our more
affordable plans.

In November 2013, Jim learned his small-business policy would be canceled
because it didn't comply with the new mandate to cover pediatric dentistry
and maternity care.

The individual plan I had with Blue Cross was canceled, too.

We learned patience, but we couldn't keep our doctors.

We had applied online and sent copies of our passports to California
Covered for verification, but we received no bill, no confirmation of our
coverage, no insurance cards. Jim spent an hour and a half on hold once
before getting disconnected. He tried again the next day, waiting another
two hours before getting disconnected.

... the urologist wouldn't accept our new Blue Shield plan - even though
the Blue Shield website said he did.

We have no choice to opt out of the required pediatric dentistry or
maternity coverage we'll never use...

931) Skipped 57% of his daily intelligence briefings during his first term

During Obama's first term, he skipped 57% of his daily intelligence
briefings.

932) Obama said 20% of female college students are sexually assaulted, but
a study by his own Department of Justice said the actual number was 0.61%

Obama said 20% of female college students are sexually assaulted, but a
study by his own Department of Justice said the actual number was 0.61%.

The 20% figure came from a study that counted "attempted forced kissing"
as sexual assault.

933) Illegally used a racial double standard to decide who would get
prosecuted for growing and selling marijuana

In December 2014, the Obama administration said that it would not
prosecute Native Americans for growing and selling marijuana. This
exemption is illegal for two reasons. First, the exemption was not
approved by Congress. And secondly, the Constitution requires that federal
laws apply equally to everyone.

934) The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against the Obama administration's
claim that international law superseded U.S. law

In 1993, the U.S. adopted an international treaty called "Convention on
the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of
Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction." The purpose of this treaty was
to deal with the possible widespread use of chemical weapons against large
numbers of people by terrorists.

However, the Obama administration used this treaty to prosecute a woman
who, after finding out that her husband had had an affair with another
woman, used toxic chemicals to contaminate the mailbox and car of that
other woman. The Obama administration argued that international law
superseded U.S. law. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that this crime fell
under the jurisdiction of state government, and not the international
treaty.

935) Harvard faculty members who supported the passage of Obamacare later
complained that they had to pay for it

In January 2015, the New York Times reported:

For years, Harvard's experts on health economics and policy have advised
presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at
a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard
faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.

Members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the heart of the 378-year-old
university, voted overwhelmingly in November to oppose changes that would
require them and thousands of other Harvard employees to pay more for
health care. The university says the increases are in part a result of the
Obama administration's Affordable Care Act, which many Harvard professors
championed.

The faculty vote came too late to stop the cost increases from taking
effect this month, and the anger on campus remains focused on questions
that are agitating many workplaces: How should the burden of health costs
be shared by employers and employees? If employees have to bear more of
the cost, will they skimp on medically necessary care, curtail the use of
less valuable services, or both?

In Harvard's health care enrollment guide for 2015, the university said it
"must respond to the national trend of rising health care costs, including
some driven by health care reform," in the form of the Affordable Care
Act. The guide said that Harvard faced "added costs" because of provisions
in the health care law that extend coverage for children up to age 26,
offer free preventive services like mammograms and colonoscopies and,
starting in 2018, add a tax on high-cost insurance, known as the Cadillac
tax.

Richard F. Thomas, a Harvard professor of classics and one of the world's
leading authorities on Virgil, called the changes "deplorable, deeply
regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university."

Mary D. Lewis, a professor who specializes in the history of modern France
and has led opposition to the benefit changes, said they were tantamount
to a pay cut. "Moreover," she said, "this pay cut will be timed to come at
precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges
of being a new parent."

Jerry R. Green, a professor of economics and a former provost who has been
on the Harvard faculty for more than four decades, said the new out-of-
pocket costs could lead people to defer medical care or diagnostic tests,
causing more serious illnesses and costly complications in the future.

"It's equivalent to taxing the sick," Professor Green said. "I don't think
there's any government in the world that would tax the sick."

"It seems that Harvard is trying to save money by shifting costs to sick
people," said Mary C. Waters, a professor of sociology. "I don't
understand why a university with Harvard's incredible resources would do
this. What is the crisis?"

936) Nominated someone for attorney general who had illegally used secret
sentencing procedures to reward criminals for their cooperation

In January 2015, it was reported that Loretta Lynch, Obama's nominee for
attorney general, had illegally used secret sentencing procedures to
reward criminals for their cooperation.

937) Although Obama said Obamacare would reduce the number of E.R. visits,
a Harvard study showed there was actually an increase

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said it would reduce the number of
emergency room visits. However, a study published by Harvard University in
January 2014 showed that Obamacare had actually caused an increase in
emergency room visits.

938) Although Obama claims to be against income inequality, he dined at a
restaurant that charges $500,000 to be a "Charter Member," and $50,000 to
be a "Special Member"

federal employees in Cannes, France, a travel allowance of $702 per day,
even though a three star hotel in that city only cost about $100 per
night.

940) Illegally seized seven bows from the Budapest Festival Orchestra at
JFK International Airport based on a false accusation that they were made
from ivory

In June 2014, the Obama administration illegally seized seven bows from
the Budapest Festival Orchestra at JFK International Airport based on a
false accusation that they were made from ivory. At the time, all seven
bows had documentation with letters and and photographs from their makers
which proved that they did not contain any ivory.

941) Illegally destroyed 13 handmade flutes belonging to Boujemaa Razgui
at JFK International Airport based on a false claim that they were
"fresh" bamboo

$80,000 for his "research assistants," Gruber refused a request to provide
the names, W-2's, and other information to prove that these "research
assistants" actually existed.

947) Obama said that it's wrong to criticize a man who raped a child

When Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, was 53 years old, he raped a girl who
was either nine or ten years old at the time.

In September 2012, Obama said:

"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."

You can see him saying it at


948) Falsely said "My job is to communicate to the American people that
the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people who simply want to
live their lives and see their children live better lives"

In 2009, Obama said:

"My job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is
filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and
see their children live better lives."

However, there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution which says that that is
part of the President's job.

949) Although 44% of college graduates were already working at jobs that
did not require a college degree, Obama proposed that even more people go
to college

In January 2015, Obama proposed that anyone with a C+ average should get
two years of free tuition at community college. However, in June 2013, 44%
of college graduates were already working at jobs that did not require a
college degree.

getting a mandatory short haircut when they arrive at boot camp

Although Obama claims to believe that women and men should be treated the
same, in January 2015 Commander-in-Chief Obama gave female Navy recruits
an exemption from getting a mandatory short haircut when they arrive at
boot camp.

951) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said "The real substance of cost
control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can't have
something they want."

In October 2009, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber wrote:

"The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling
patients they can't have something they want."

Although liberals ignored Gruber's remark, two months earlier, in August
2009, they were very critical of Sarah Palin's claim that Obamacare would
result in "death panels."

I don't know if Palin's claim about "death panels" is true or false. But I
do know that the liberals who criticized Palin's statement while ignoring
Gruber's statement were being hypocritical.

952) Announced plans to illegally create a new retirement plan

In January 2014, Obama announced that he would order the Treasury to
create a new retirement plan. Because Obama was planning to do this

Syrian Army, which was controlled by Al-Qaeda.

955) Obamacare illegally gave the President powers that were not permitted
by the Constitution

In December 2014, the American Spectator wrote:

The Constitution does not permit Congress to cede its legislative powers
to any other branch of the government. Yet, this is precisely what the
Democrats did in the case of IPAB. Prior to the passage of Obamacare only
Congress had the power to make changes to Medicare's payment rates or
coverage. But PPACA transferred that power to IPAB, an Executive branch
body whose members will be appointed by the President.

956) Instead of prosecuting Alissa Starzak for stealing classified
documents from the CIA, Obama nominated her to be the U.S. Army's top
lawyer

politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States
after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic
campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United
States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But
the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work
for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

Holdren, Obama's science adviser, said we should try to get its emissions
"close to zero by 2100?

Carbon dioxide is the bottom of the food chain. All plants and algae need
to consume it in order to live. Every living person and animal emits it.
However, in December 2014, John Holdren, Obama's science adviser, said we
should try to get carbon dioxide emissions "close to zero by 2100."

968) Used taxpayers' money to fund a "blacks only" meeting for the All
African People's Revolutionary Party

In December 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had given
taxpayers' money to the All African People's Revolutionary Party to fund a
"blacks only" meeting in Portland, Oregon.

969) Lied about the rate of economic growth

Although the economic growth rate during the third quarter of 2014 was
2.7%, the Obama administration falsely claimed that it was 5.0%.

970) Eric Schultz, Obama's Deputy Press Secretary, falsely said "We don't
give concessions to terrorist organizations"

In May 2014, Obama released five "high risk" Taliban terrorists in
exchange for U.S. military deserter Bowe Bergdahl. However, in January
2015, Eric Schultz, Obama's Deputy Press Secretary, said, "We don't give
concessions to terrorist organizations."

971) The "most transparent administration in history" said it won't let
the public see its 332 page net neutrality plan until after the FCC voted
on its implementation

In February 2015, the Obama administration said that it would not let the
public see its 332 page proposal for net neutrality until after the FCC
voted on its implementation.

972) Obama's 332 page net neutrality plan contained excessive levels of
taxation and regulation

Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Paisaid said that Obama's net neutrality
plan was 332 pages long, and that

"It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how
the Internet works... "

"The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on
broadband... These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and
more hidden fees that they have to pay."

"The plan saddles small, independent businesses and entrepreneurs with
heavy-handed regulations that will push them out of the market... As a
result, Americans will have fewer broadband choices. This is no accident.
Title II was designed to regulate a monopoly. If we impose that model on a
vibrant broadband marketplace, a highly regulated monopoly is what we'll
get."

The Daily Caller reported:

In his initial cursory overview of the plan, the commissioner said it
would hinder broadband investment, slow network speed and expansion, limit
outgrowth to rural areas of the country and reduce Internet service
provider (ISP) competition.

973) "President Obama's 2016 budget targets retirement accounts"

In February 2015, MSN published this article titled "President Obama's
2016 budget targets retirement accounts."

974) Tax Policy Center, a liberal think tank, said Obama's proposed
"middle class" tax cut was actually an increase in taxes for the middle
class

In January 2015, Tax Policy Center, a liberal think tank, said that
Obama's proposed "middle class" tax cut was actually an increase in taxes
for the middle class. Specifically, it said Obama's policy would result in
a seven dollar tax increase for the middle quintile.

975) Bill Maher said Obama "... is perhaps the worst president we've had
on clamping down on the press"

In January 2015, Bill Maher said Obama...

"... is perhaps the worst president we've had on clamping down on the
press."

976) George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley
said of Obama, "... many of his actions... are violations of his oath of
office"

In January 2015, George Washington University Law School professor
Jonathan Turley said of Obama:

"The effort to establish unilateral authority presents an existential
threat to our system of government. Although the President has insisted
that he is merely exercising executive discretion, any such discretion by
definition can only occur within the scope of granted authority and only
to the extent that it is not curtailed by the language of the
Constitution. This includes his obligation to faithfully execute the law.
U.S. Const. art. II, § 3, cl. 4. Some of the President's actions can be
viewed as within permissible lines of discretion. However, many of his
actions cannot and are violations of his oath of office. That oath is not
merely an affirmative pledge to defend the Constitution but to yield to
its limitations on his own authority. To put it simply, that was the deal
struck on January 20, 2013."

977) Julie Moreno borrowed $14,000 to pay for cataract surgery because her
Obamacare policy refused to pay for it

In February 2015, it was reported that Julie Moreno of Mountain View,
California, borrowed $14,000 to pay for cataract surgery because her
Obamacare policy refused to pay for it.

978) Lied about the unemployment rate

In February 2015, Gallup CEO Jim Clifton wrote:

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

Here's something that many Americans - including some of the smartest and
most educated among us - don't know: The official unemployment rate, as
reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we're hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House
and Wall Street about how unemployment is "down" to 5.6%. The cheerleading
for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White
House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to
stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is
unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job - if you are so
hopelessly out of work that you've stopped looking over the past four
weeks - the Department of Labor doesn't count you as unemployed. That's
right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically
may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see
relentlessly in the news - currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30
million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust
me, the vast majority of them aren't throwing parties to toast "falling"
unemployment.

There's another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you're an
out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail
manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are
paid at least $20 - maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn - you're not
officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans
know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn't get much press: those
working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in
chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you
can find - in other words, you are severely underemployed - the government
doesn't count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There's no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which
cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently
unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big
Lie.

979) Instead of deporting illegal aliens, the Obama administration spent
taxpayers' money to give them hormone therapy

In January 2015, it was reported that instead of deporting illegal aliens,
the Obama administration spent taxpayers' money to give them hormone
therapy.

980) Illegally gave 982,000 work permits to illegal aliens and other
foreign nationals who were not legally qualified for admission

During Obama's first six years as President, he illegally gave 982,000
work permits to illegal aliens and other foreign nationals who were not
legally qualified for admission.

981) Obamacare customer service telephone number connected an Obamacare
customer to "someone reading off a script in the Philippines"

In November 2014, a New York Times article on Obamacare said that Health
Republic Insurance was

... a new co-op plan created under the law, for people who lived in the
area.

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

Compounding the problem is the lack of basic information to shop
effectively. When Andrea Greenberg, a New York lawyer, called the help
line of Health Republic to clarify the difference between two plans, she
found herself speaking to someone reading off a script in the Philippines.
"I was really outraged," she said. "This is an important decision with
potentially dire consequences. It's not like you're choosing a sweater."

982) During the first year that Obamacare was in effect, the percentage of
U.S. citizens who said they had trouble affording health care increased
from 36% to 46%

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

A recent New York Times/CBS poll found that 46 percent of Americans said
they had trouble affording health care, up 10 percentage points in just
one year.

983) A year after Obamacare took effect, the New York Times wrote, "For
still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that they
just avoid seeing doctors"

A February 2015 New York Times article on Obamacare said:

"For still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that
they just avoid seeing doctors."

984) Although Obamacare gives employers an incentive to reduce their
employees' hours, Obama criticized companies that actually responded to
this incentive

Because Obamacare's employer mandate only applies to employees who work 30
or more hours per week, it gives employers an incentive to reduce their
employees' hours to 29 hours per week.

In July 2013, the New York Times reported that Obamacare

"... sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time
employment."

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter
to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will

"... destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone
of the American middle class... the law creates an incentive for
employers to keep employees' work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous
employers have begun to cut workers' hours to avoid this obligation."

Although it was Obama himself who signed Obamacare into law in March 2010,
in February 2015 Obama said:

"... when I hear large corporations that make billions of dollars in
profits trying to blame our interest in providing health insurance as an
excuse for cutting back workers' wages, shame on them."

985) Falsely said, "There is no reason for an employer who is not
currently providing health care to their workers to discourage them from
either getting health insurance on the job or being able to avail
themselves of the Affordable Care Act."

In February 2015, Obama said:

"There is no reason for an employer who is not currently providing health
care to their workers to discourage them from either getting health
insurance on the job or being able to avail themselves of the Affordable
Care Act."

However, in the same article, Reuters explained that there is indeed such
a reason:

"The Affordable Care Act requires companies with more than 50 employees to
pay for health insurance for people who work 30 hours a week or more.
Reuters has reported that some businesses are keeping staffing numbers
below 50 or cutting the work week to less than 30 hours to avoid providing
employee health insurance."

986) In February 2015, Democrats who voted for Obamacare complained that
people actually had to pay for it

In February 2015, Associated Press reported:

Democrats seek relief from health law penalties

Senior Democrats seek sign-up extension for people facing health law
penalties

Three senior House members told The Associated Press that they plan to
strongly urge the administration to grant a special sign-up opportunity
for uninsured taxpayers who will be facing fines under the law for the
first time this year.

The three are Michigan's Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways
and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and
Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama's law through
rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.

"Open enrollment period ended before many Americans filed their taxes,"
the three lawmakers said in a statement. "Without a special enrollment
period, many people (who will be paying fines) will not have another
opportunity to get health coverage this year.

"A special enrollment period will not only help many Americans avoid
making an even larger payment next year, but, more importantly, it will
help them gain quality health insurance for 2015," the lawmakers added.

987) "Top teacher" said she resigned because of Obama's Common Core and
Obama's continuation of Bush's No Child Left Behind

In February 2015, Stacie Starr, winner of the 2014 "Top Teacher" award by
"Live with Kelly and Michael," said that she was resigning because of
Obama's Common Core and Obama's continuation of Bush's No Child Left
Behind. She did not quit teaching per se. Instead, she resigned her
official teaching position, and said she would be focusing her efforts on
alternative systems of education that were not controlled by the federal
bureaucracy.

988) Gave out even more illegal exemptions to Obamacare

In February 2015, Obama gave out even more exemptions to Obamacare.
Because he did this without approval from Congress, his action was
illegal.

989) Sent false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees

In February 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had sent
false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees.

990) Falsely said that "economic grievances" were a cause of terrorism

In February 2015, Obama said that "economic grievances" were a
contributing factor to terrorism. However, in the real world, many
terrorists come from middle class and wealthy backgrounds.

991) Illegally continued part of his illegal amnesty program even after a
federal judge blocked it

In February 2015, the Obama administration continued part of its illegal
amnesty program even after a federal judge blocked it.

992) Department of Energy spent taxpayers' money on a casino night, a
Super Bowl party, a golf tournament, a banquet on a dinner cruise boat,
and dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame

Between April 2013 and September 2014, the Department of Energy spent
taxpayers' money on a casino night, a Super Bowl party, a golf tournament,
a banquet on a dinner cruise boat, and a dinner at the NASCAR Hall of
Fame.

993) Advised border patrol agents to release drunk drivers

In February 2015, the Obama administration advised border patrol agents to
release drunk drivers.

994) Made it possible for illegal aliens to collect back tax refunds even
if they had never actually paid any taxes

In February 2015, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that
Obama's amnesty program for illegal aliens made it possible form them to
collect back tax refunds even if they had never actually paid any taxes.

995) After an Islamic terrorist who murdered four Jews at a kosher
supermarket in France said he had specifically targeted them because they
were Jewish, Obama falsely said the attack was "random"

In January 2015, an Islamic terrorist named Ahmedy Coulibaly murdered four
Jews at Hyper Cacher, a kosher supermarket in France.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

Coulibaly called a French TV station from the kosher supermarket and said
he was an al-Qaida terrorist and that he chose the kosher supermarket
because he wanted to kill Jews.

However, Obama said the murders were "random."

996) Broke his promise to release a 28 page document which allegedly
proved that the Saudi Arabian government had supported the September 11,
2001 terrorist attacks

In September 2014, it was reported that Obama had broken his promise to
release a 28 page document which allegedly proved that the Saudi Arabian
government had supported the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

997) Pressured colleges to adopt sexual harassment rules that were so bad
that 28 Harvard Law School professors signed a letter of protest

In February 2015, it was reported that the Department of Education had
pressured colleges to adopt sexual harassment rules that were so bad that
28 Harvard Law School professors signed a letter which criticized the
rules for being "inconsistent with many of the most basic principles we
teach" and for giving accused people "the absence of any adequate
opportunity to confront witnesses and present a defense." The complete
text of the letter can be read here.

998) Illegally refused to provide annual reports on ways to reduce the
complexity of the tax code

In January 2015, it was reported that the IRS had illegally refused to
provide annual reports on ways to reduce the complexity of the tax code.

999) Illegally implemented net neutrality rules

In February 2015, the Obama administration implemented net neutrality
rules. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action
was illegal.

1,000) Falsely said there were "nearly 7 million American Muslims in our
country"

In June 2009, Obama said there were

"nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country"

However, in June 2009, PolitiFact wrote:

We are using numbers from the CIA Online World Factbook, a highly regarded
government source for global statistics. It's updated twice a month, and
we're relying on the latest version. By the World Factbook's count,
Muslims in the United States make up about 0.6 percent of the population.
That's around 1.8 million.

On 8 Aug 2016 00:39:25 -0400, Bradley K. Sherman says...
In American history, we've never had a President
who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.

201) Illegally bypassed Congress to delay Obamacare's employer mandate

As the Obamacare law was written, the employer mandate was to begin in
January 2014. This is what the law said when it was passed by the House
and Senate, and signed by President Obama.

However, in July 2013, Obama delayed the employer mandate part of
Obamacare until January 2015. Obama did this without approval from
Congress.

For Obama to change a law that was passed by Congress, without first
getting approval from Congress, is a violation of the Presidential oath
that Obama took to uphold and defend the Constitution.

What Obama did here is an action of a dictator, not an action of a
President whose power is limited by a written constitution.

If Obama can get away with this, then it sets a horribly dangerous
precedent, and means that the President can arbitrarily make any change to
any law that has been passed by Congress, without first getting approval
from Congress.

202) Made it too hard for some doctors to continue their practices

In July 2013, ABC News reported that some doctors were shutting down their
practices in response to Obamacare.

Dr. Robert WcWilliams, an obstetrician/gynecologist with more than 5,000
patients, said:

"It's going to be run by bureaucrats - and it's going to be run by
politicians - who have no idea what is in your best interests, then I'm
getting out."

203) Falsely told Africans that contaminated water is a smaller problem
than global warming

In July 2013, while speaking in Johannesburg, South Africa, President
Obama said that global warming was "the biggest challenge we have
environmentally" and that it was worse than "dirty water, dirty air."

However, according to the World Health Organization, while global warming
kills 140,000 people each year, air pollution kills 3 million people per
year.

According to UNESCO, each year, contaminated water causes 4 billion cases
of diarrhea, 120,000 cases of cholera, 300 million cases of malaria, 12
million cases of typhoid, 6 million cases of trachoma, 200 million cases
of schistosomiesis, and more than 1 billion incidents of intestinal
parasites.

You know what's worse than global warming? How about living your entire
life without ever having access to a toilet?

The World Health Organization says that dirty water is "the leading cause
of disease and death around the world."

That Obama would downplay these problems shows how scientifically
illiterate he is.

That he would do so while giving a speech in Africa, which has the highest
rate of water borne illness of any continent, shows how thoughtless and
insensitive he is.

204) Spent $630,000 of taxpayers' money to get more Facebook "likes"

In July 2013, it was reported that Obama had spent $630,000 of taxpayers'
money in order to get more Facebook "likes."

205) Declared that hacking was an act of war, then hacked the EU

In 2011, the Obama administration issued a statement which said that when
one country hacked another country's computers, the hacking constituted an
"act of war."

In July 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had hacked
computers which were owned by the European Union.

206) Said "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon"

In Florida, after a school security camera showed Trayvon Martin marking
graffiti, a search of his backpack showed that it contained 12 pieces of
women's jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with
diamonds. The backpack also had a screwdriver, which is often used as a
tool by burglars. Martin said that the jewelry belonged to a friend, but
refused to say who that friend was.

Why would a teenage boy bring a backpack full of silver wedding rings and
diamond earrings to school? Do Martin's millions of defenders really think
that he was not a burglar?

The fact that Martin was in possession of stolen jewelry at school is
perfectly in line with George Zimmerman's claim on the 911 call that
Martin was acting suspiciously. And there had been quite a few burglaries
in the area recently.

Also on the 911 call, Zimmerman had said that Martin was acting as if he
was on drugs. Martin's autopsy showed that there was THC in his system.
And while other parts of marijuana can stay in the system for weeks after
it's smoked, the THC only stays in the person's system for a few hours.
Therefore, Martin was indeed high when Zimmerman saw him.

So Trayvon Martin was a burglar, used illegal drugs, broke Zimmerman's
nose, and smashed Zimmerman's head against the concrete.

And how does Obama respond to all of this?

Obama said:

"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."

207) Falsely said that Secretary of State John Kerry had not been on his
yacht during the regime change in Egypt

In July 2013, the Obama administration falsely said that Secretary of
State John Kerry had not been on his yacht during the regime change in
Egypt.

Evan after CBS news presented the Obama administration with photographic
evidence that Kerry had been on his yacht during that time, the Obama
administration still continued to falsely claim that Kerry had not been on
his yacht.

CBS News reported:

On Thursday night, CBS News obtained a photo of Kerry on his boat and sent
it to the State Department, asking whether they still stand by their
denial that Kerry was on a boat.

The response: "Yes."

208) Said "the planet will boil over" if African citizens adopt a first
world standard of living

In July 2013, Obama said "the planet will boil over" if African citizens
adopt a first world standard of living.
"the planet will boil over

209) "Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea
Party than radical Muslims."

In June 2013, Rasmussen conducted a poll to find out what people
considered to be the "nation's top terror threat."

Reporting on the results of the poll, Rasmussen wrote:

"Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea
Party than radical Muslims."

210) Illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close,
which destroyed 120,000 jobs

In 2009, Obama illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to
close. These dealerships had employed 120,000 people.

211) Subsidized the production of alcoholic beverages

In June 2013, Breitbart reported:

The USDA Rural Development agency also touted a program to subsidize the
Wine Barn LLC in "marketing and increasing production of its Kansas
produced wine." That cost $25,000. The USDA Rural Development also said it
would hand $300,000 to the Mackinaw Trail Winery in Michigan, $100,000 for
the Appleton Creek Winery in New York, $162,500 for the Old Westminster
Winery in Maryland, and tens of thousands of dollars to wineries in
Nebraska and Iowa.

Liquor is the name of the game for the USDA, apparently - they're also
subsidizing the production of vodka in North Carolina, Bloody Mary mix in
West Virginia, and hard cider in Virginia.

212) Gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to illegal
aliens who all used the same address

In 2011, the IRS gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to
illegal aliens who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga.

213) Sued private businesses for using "racist" criminal background checks
to screen employees

In June 2013, the Obama administration filed lawsuits against Dollar
General and BMW for using criminal background checks to screen employees.
The Obama administration claimed that such background checks were
"racist."

214) Used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against
George Zimmerman

In March and April of 2012, Obama used tax money to pay federal employees
to organize protests against George Zimmerman.

215) Illegally continued giving foreign aid to Egypt after it had a coup

Federal law requires that U.S. foreign aid to Egypt be ended if and when
Egypt has a coup. However, after Egypt had a coup in July 2013, the Obama
administration said that it would continue giving foreign aid to Egypt.

216) Broke promise to end Bush's surveillance of U.S. citizens who were
not suspected of committing a crime

In August 2007, Obama promised that he would end Bush's surveillance of
U.S. citizens who were not suspected of committing a crime. However, in
June 2013, such surveillance was still being conducted.

217) Spent $3 million to study the health risks of dating Mexican
prostitutes

In July 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $3
million to study the health risks of dating Mexican prostitutes.

218) Lied about the cost of IRS conferences

In June 2013 it was reported that the Obama administration had lied about
the cost of IRS conferences. While the actual cost was $50 million, the
Obama administration had claimed that the cost was only 1% of that mount.

219) Spent $890,000 per year on service fees for bank accounts that had no
money

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was spending
$890,000 each year on service fees for bank accounts that did not have any
money in them. At the time, the government had 13,712 empty accounts which
it was supposed to have closed, but which it had kept open anyway.

220) Spent $34 million to construct a new military headquarters in
Afghanistan after U.S. military commanders said they did not want it

After U.S. military commanders said in 2010 that they did not want a new
headquarters in Afghanistan, the Obama administration spent $34 million to
build it anyway.

221) Falsely said that his scandals were "phony"

In July 2013, Obama said

"With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony
scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball."

These scandals are not "phony." I have cited a huge number of sources in
this list to show that these scandals are real.

222) Falsely guaranteed that people could keep their doctor

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

"Here is a guarantee that I've made... If you've got a doctor that you
like, you will be able to keep your doctor."

However, in July 2013, the Obama administration said that people "may" be
able to keep their doctor.

223) Falsely said the auto bailouts prevented Detroit from going bankrupt

Obama falsely stated that the auto bailouts prevented Detroit from going
bankrupt.

224) Illegally seized a privately owned gun from a law abiding citizen

After a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty, the Obama administration
announced that it would seize his gun. This violated the double jeopardy
clause of the U.S. Constitution, as well as the takings clause of the
fifth amendment.

225) Broke his promise to have real time verifiability of Obamacare
subsidies

In July 2013, Investor's Business Daily wrote:

Meanwhile, the administration tacitly admitted last week that its promise
of real-time verification of a consumer's eligibility to buy subsidized
coverage at an ObamaCare exchange wasn't exactly panning out.

Under ObamaCare, only those who don't have access to "affordable"
insurance at work can buy coverage in an exchange, and only those below
certain income levels are eligible for tax subsidies.

Rather than a high-tech instant check, the administration told states they
could simply take the applicants' word for it when it comes to their
employer-provided coverage, as well as their "projected annual household
income," without the need for "further verification."

226) Signed health care reform whose rules contradicted each other

Obamacare allows insurance companies to charge higher premiums for
smokers. At the same time, it prohibits insurance companies from charging
more than three times as much for older people as it does for younger
people. In June 2013, Obama's computer programmers said that they had been
unable to write a computer program that simultaneously agreed with both of
these rules.

227) Signed a health care reform plan that is so horrible that even the
IRS agents who run it don't want to participate in it

Obama hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare.

But Obamacare is so awful that even the IRS agents who run it don't want
to participate in it.

In July 2013, the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents the
IRS employees who will be running Obamacare, provided a form letter to its
members to send to their Congressmen. The letter stated:

"I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by
Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal
Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges
established under the Affordable Care Act."

When asked about this, IRS chief Daniel Werfel responded by saying:

"I don't want to speak for the NTEU, but I'll offer a perspective as a
federal employee myself and a federal employee at the IRS. And that is, we
have right now as employees of the government, of the IRS, affordable
health care coverage. I think the ACA was designed to provide an option or
an alternative for individuals that do not. And all else being equal, I
think if you're an individual who is satisfied with your health care
coverage, you're probably in a better position to stick with that coverage
than go through the change of moving into a different environment and
going through that process. So I think for a federal employee, I think
more likely, and I would - can speak for myself, I would prefer to stay
with the current policy that I'm pleased with rather than go through a
change if I don't need to go through that change."

228) Tried to tax small businesses at a higher rate than corporations

Obama raised the top tax rate on small businesses to 39.6%, and tried to
lower the top tax rate on corporations to 28%.

229) Illegally prevented individual employees of small businesses from
choosing their own plan during the first year of Obamacare

Obamacare requires that individual employees of small businesses be
allowed to choose their own insurance plan during the first year of
Obamacare. However, in March 2013, the Obama administration announced that
it would not be allowing them to make this choice during the first year.

230) Falsely said that Obamacare had not hurt jobs

In July 2013, the Obama administration said that Obamacare had not hurt
jobs.

However, in the real world, in response to the medical device tax that is
part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers have announced plans
to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker
(1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs). In
December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other
Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry
Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the
tax would hurt job creation in their districts. The New York Times
reported that Obamacare "sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor
of part-time employment." In response to the employer mandate of
Obamacare, some restaurants have announced plans to switch some of their
employees from full time to part time, including some franchises of Olive
Garden, Red Lobster, Wendy's, Taco Bell, White Castle, and Fatburger.
Community College of Allegheny County switched 200 professors and 200
other employees from full time to part time in response to Obamacare.
Clint Benjamin, an English professor at Community College of Allegheny
County, said that this would reduce his own monthly pay by $600. Also in
response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, other colleges have
announced plans to switch some of their employees from full time to part
time, including Florida's Palm Beach State College, Ohio's Youngstown
State University, and New Jersey's Kean University. In Virginia, thousands
of government employees had their hours reduced because of Obamacare. The
Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh reduced the hours of 48 of its employees in
response to Obamacare. Regal Entertainment Group, the largest chain of
movie theaters in the country, announced that it would be switching
thousands of its employees from full time to part time in response to the
Obamacare mandate. Utah's Granite School District reduced the hours of
1,200 of its employees in response to Obamacare. In response to Obamacare,
many Wal-Mart stores have stopped hiring full time workers. In response to
Obamacare, Forever 21 reduced its employees' hours. As of September 2013,
more than 200 public-sector employers had reduced their employees' hours
in response to Obamacare. Sea World reduced the weekly hours of its part
time employees from 32 to 28 in response to Obamacare. Lands' End limited
its part time employees to 29 hours per week in response to Obamacare. As
of September 2013, at least 34 universities and colleges had reduced some
of their employees' hours in response to Obamacare. In September 2013, it
was reported that in response to Obamacare, Indiana University would be
laying off 50 of its employees and switching them to a temp agency. In
July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter to
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will "destroy the
foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American
middle class... the law creates an incentive for employers to keep
employees' work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun
to cut workers' hours to avoid this obligation."

231) Falsely said that health insurance premiums would be reduced by
$2,500 per family by the end of his first term

In February 2008, Obama said:

"We are going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500. We will
not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We
will do it by the end of my first term as president."

However, by the time his first term was over, family premiums had gotten
bigger, not smaller. The increase was $3,065 per family.

232) Illegally gave Obamacare waiver to Massachusetts

In August 2013, Obama gave an Obamacare waiver to Massachusetts.

This waiver was illegal for two reasons. First, the waiver was not
approved by the U.S. Congress. Second, the U.S. Constitution requires that
the federal government treat all states the same.

233) Betrayed the unions that helped him to get elected

In January 2013, the Wall Street Journal reported:

Some Unions Grow Wary of Health Law They Backed

Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administration's health-
care overhaul when it was up for debate. Now that the law is rolling out,
some are turning sour.

Union leaders say many of the law's requirements will drive up the costs
for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive.
Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and
prescription drugs used as cost-containment measures in many health-care
plans. It also allows children to stay on their parents' plans until they
turn 26.

Some 20 million Americans are covered by the health-care plans at issue

Top officers at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the AFL-CIO
and other large labor groups plan to keep pressing the Obama
administration to expand the federal subsidies to these jointly run plans,
warning that unionized employers may otherwise drop coverage. A handful of
unions say they already have examined whether it makes sense to shift
workers off their current plans

"We are going back to the administration to say that this is not
acceptable," said Ken Hall, general secretary-treasurer for the Teamsters,
which has 1.6 million members and dependents in health-care plans. Other
unions involved in the push include the United Food and Commercial Workers
International Union and Unite Here

Sheet Metal Workers Local 85 in Atlanta, which has about 1,900 members.
Next year it must lift the $250,000 annual cap on the amount it will pay
for medical claims. The law's requirements will add between 50 cents to $1
an hour to the cost of members' compensation package

234) Illegally changed Obamacare to benefit members of Congress and their
staff

Obamacare was passed by the House and Senate, and signed by President
Obama.

Three years later, members of Congress and their staff complained that
Obamacare was going to cost them a lot of money, and said that this would
likely cause a brain drain among their staff. In response to this, Obama
made changes to Obamacare so that these things would not happen. However,
Obama's actions were illegal, because he made these changes without
Congress voting on them first.

The New York Times wrote of this:

... the language of the health care law requires Congressional employees
to obtain health insurance through an exchange created by the law, but
other parts of the federal legal code restrict the ability of the federal
government to pay the usual employer share for group insurance programs
approved by the Office of Personnel Management.

A straightforward reading of the law thus means that Congressional staff
members, starting in January 2014, will have to obtain insurance through
the Affordable Care Act but pay for it on their own without the normal
contribution from their employer - Congress. This would be a multi-
thousand-dollar income hit for those affected... many... would
potentially feel the pain, giving rise to concerns over a potential brain
drain of Congressional staff members finding other employment.

... the federal personnel office initially ruled that Congressional staff
members would not be eligible for the subsidies, and then changed this
decision under pressure from the White House...

235) Told General Mills to stop making true claims about Cheerios

For quite some time, advertisements for the breakfast cereal Cheerios made
the true and accurate claim that eating Cheerios lowers a person's
cholesterol.

However, even though this claim is true and accurate, in May 2009, the
Obama administration ordered General Mills, the maker of Cheerios, to stop
making this claim in its commercials.

236) Illegally avoided enforcing the required income verification of
people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges

Even though Obamacare requires the government to verify the income of
people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges, in August 2013 it
was reported that Obama would not be verifying their incomes.

237) Placed a 40% tax on so-called "Cadillac" insurance plans

Obamacare includes a 40% tax on so-called "Cadillac" insurance plans. In
August 2013, unions that supported the passage of Obamacare complained
about this tax.

238) Made medical care for special needs children more expensive

In August 2013, it was reported that Obamacare would make it more
expensive for the parents of special needs children to pay for their
children's medical equipment and specialized private schools that cater to
their medical needs.

239) Responded to the Benghazi attack by going back to bed, and then later
got up and headed off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser

In September 2012, after Obama found out that U.S. citizens were being
killed in Benghazi, Libya, he went back to bed. After he got up in the
morning, he went off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

240) Illegally delayed the caps on out of pocket health care payments
without Congressional approval

As it was passed by the House and Senate and signed by Obama, Obamacare
sets caps on the out of pocket payments that people pay for health care,
and these caps were legally required to take effect in January 2014.

However, in August 2013, Obama delayed these caps until January 2015.

Because Obama imposed this delay without it first being approved by
Congress, Obama's action was illegal. The President does not have the
legal authority to change an Act that was passed by Congress, without that
change first being approved by Congress. What Obama did here is not the
act of a President whose power is limited by a written constitution, but
is, instead, the action of a dictator.

241) Holds a double standard when it comes to supporting "gun free" zones

In December 2012, a petition at whitehouse.gov stated:

"Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their
families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them"

"Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians
wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same
politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed
Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our
children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians."

The Obama administration rejected the proposal.

242) Outlawed the low-premium, high-deductible health insurance that some
people prefer

Obamacare bans to the low-premium, high-deductible health insurance that
some people prefer.

243) Lied about how many people he had helped to protect from mortgage
fraud

In August 2013, it was reported that less than one month before the 2012
election, the Obama administration had lied about the number of people
that it had helped to protect from mortgage fraud, as well as the total
amount of money involved. In August 2013, when the truth was revealed,
Newsbusters reported:

"Thus, the number of defendants fell by 80% from what DOJ claimed less
than a month before the presidential election. The number of victims fell
by 76%. The amount of losses involved dropped by over 90%."

244) Falsely said the NSA review was being conducted by an "independent"
body

In August 2013, Obama said that he would establish an "independent"
investigation of NSA surveillance.

However, three days later, it was reported that this so-called
"independent" investigation would be run by James Clapper, who had falsely
testified to Congress that the NSA was not collecting information on U.S.
citizens.

245) Used tax money to pay for a separate flight just for his dog

In August 2013, Obama forced taxpayers to pay for a separate airplane
flight just for his dog Bo.

246) Closed off public roads so he could buy books

In August 2013, Obama had public roads closed to the public so he could go
to a bookstore. Why didn't he just order the books online?

247) Gave illegal EPA exemption to one oil refinery, and would not say
which refinery it was

The EPA has a very expensive ethanol mandate that applies to all oil
refineries. However, in August 2013, it was reported that Obama had given
one oil refinery an exemption from this mandate.

This exemption is illegal for two reasons. First, the exemption was not
approved by Congress. And secondly, the Constitution requires that federal
laws apply equally to everyone.

In addition, Obama refused to say which refinery it was that received this
exemption, which is completely contrary to his repeated promises of
"transparency."

248) Created new fines for charitable hospitals that give treatment to
uninsured people

In August 2013, it was reported that Obamacare creates new fines for
charitable hospitals that give treatment to uninsured people.

249) Blamed poverty on zip codes instead of on behavior

In July 2013, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said:

"Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest-hit communities, no matter how
hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her
lifespan, is determined by the ZIP Code she grows up in. This is simply
wrong."

However, let's consider two groups of people in the U.S. The first group
has a poverty rate of 2%. The second group has a poverty rate of 76%.

The first group consists of people who followed all three of these steps:

1) Finish high school.

2) Get a full-time job.

3) Wait until age 21 and get married before having children.

The second group consists of people who followed zero of those three
steps.

Among people who follow all three of these steps, the poverty rate is 2%.

Among people who follow zero of these steps, the poverty rate is 76%.

(My source for that information is this article, which refers to this PDF,
and the relevant data is on page 15 of the PDF. The study uses data from
the U.S. Census Bureau.)

250) Nominated a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama fundraiser to head
the FCC

In May 2013, Obama nominated Tom Wheeler to head the FCC. Wheeler had
previously been the head of the National Cable and Telecommunications
Association, which is a lobbying organization for the cable TV industry.
He had also been the head of CTIA, a lobbying organization for cellphone
carriers. In addition, he had also been a fundraiser for Obama.

251) Tried to violate defendants' right to a fair trial

In August 2013, Reuters reported:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling
information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a
massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to
help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents
reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to
conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense
lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate"
the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information
originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's
Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don't know how an
investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources
of exculpatory evidence - information that could reveal entrapment,
mistakes or biased witnesses.

"I have never heard of anything like this at all," said Nancy Gertner, a
Harvard Law School professor who served as a federal judge from 1994 to
2011. Gertner and other legal experts said the program sounds more
troubling than recent disclosures that the National Security Agency has
been collecting domestic phone records. The NSA effort is geared toward
stopping terrorists; the DEA program targets common criminals, primarily
drug dealers.

"It is one thing to create special rules for national security," Gertner
said. "Ordinary crime is entirely different. It sounds like they are
phonying up investigations."

252) Threatened internet service providers with contempt of court if they
did not install surveillance software

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had
pressured internet service providers to install surveillance software, so
that it could monitor internet traffic without a warrant. Internet service
providers who did not cave in to this pressure were threatened by the
Obama administration with contempt of court. This violated the
Constitution's ban on warrantless searches. In addition, the executive
branch does not have the legal authority to declare contempt of court, as
this power is reserved exclusively for the judicial branch.

253) Sued Louisiana to keep low income blacks trapped in bad schools, and
lied about why he did it

In August 2013, the Obama administration sued Louisiana to try to bring an
end to its school voucher program - a program which had just been passed
in 2012.

Under the Louisiana program, both of the following criteria had to be met
in order for a student to get a school voucher. First, the student must
come from a family whose income is below 250% of the poverty level. And
second, the current public school that the student is attending must be
rated as "C" or below.

86% of students who received vouchers had used those vouchers to flee from
public schools which had been rated as "D" or "F."

Only the most vulnerable children were eligible for the vouchers - the
poorest students attending the worst schools.

Obama's reason for filing the lawsuit was that "many of those vouchers
impeded the desegregation process."

However, in response to Obama's claim that the vouchers discriminated
against blacks, Louisiana Education Superintendent John White pointed out
that almost all of the students using the vouchers were black, and said
that "it's a little ridiculous" for Obama to claim that these vouchers
caused discrimination against blacks. The Washington Post reported that
90% of the students who receive the vouchers are black.

It's also worth noting that only students whose parents request such
vouchers are eligible to participate in the voucher program. Obama is
therefore claiming that parents want their own children to be
discriminated against. Obama is extremely wrong on this. These parents do
not want their children to be discriminated against. In reality, what
these parents want is for their children to have a chance at a better
education.

This also makes Obama a hypocrite, because while he was living in both
Chicago and Washington D.C., he always sent his own children to private
schools. Does Obama really want us to believe that he subjected his own
children to racial discrimination by sending them to private schools?

254) Encouraged 40,000 longshoremen to quit the AFL-CIO

In September 2013, it was reported that 40,000 longshoremen had quit the
AFL-CIO, and that they had cited Obamacare as one of their reasons for
doing so.

255) Paid $67 million to so-called "volunteers"

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama has paid $67 million to so-
called "volunteers" to teach people about Obamacare.

256) Illegally used Obamacare to fund pre-K education without approval
from Congress

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama had illegally used Obamacare to
fund pre-K education without approval from Congress.

257) Obama's "hunger-free" program left students feeling hungry

In December 2010, Obama signed the "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act," which
limited school lunches to a maximum of 850 calories. Students complained
that this so-called "hunger-free" program left them feeling hungry.

258) Signed health care reform that is so terrible that less than 3% of
federal employees want to join it

In August 2013, it was reported that less than 3% of federal employees
wanted to participate in Obamacare.

259) Avoided doing background checks on Obamacare "navigators"

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration would not be
doing background checks on Obamacare "navigators," despite the fact that
these "navigators" would have access to people's personal, private, and
financial information.

260) Illegally paid White House interns less than minimum wage

In June 2013, a federal court ruled that Fox Searchlight Pictures had
violated the minimum wage law by using unpaid interns. Two months later,
it was reported that the Obama administration was using unpaid interns. In
addition to this being illegal, it also makes Obama a hypocrite, because
he had previously spoken out in favor of raising the minimum wage.

261) Said broccoli was his favorite food

In July 2013, Obama said that broccoli was his favorite food. However,
before he made this claim, even though the media showed many pictures of
him eating, and even though there were many articles published about the
foods that he ate, as far as I know, none of those pictures or articles
ever showed or mentioned him eating broccoli. While this may seem trivial,
it shows that there is nothing - absolutely nothing at all - that Obama is
not willing to lie about.

262) Illegally missed half of Obamacare's deadlines

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama had illegally missed 41 of
Obamacare's 82 deadlines.

263) Tried to give illegal Obamacare subsidies to unions without
Congressional approval

In August 2013 it was reported that Obama was trying to give illegal
Obamacare subsidies to unions, without approval from Congress.

264) Made it harder for writers, actors, artists, and musicians to obtain
health insurance

In September 2013, the Weekly Standard reported:

Nancy Pelosi waxed rhapsodic in 2010 as she imagined the benefits of
Obamacare: "Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a
photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in
order to have health insurance."

But as Obamacare begins to kick in, artists, photographers, writers, and
other members of the "creative class" who have access to health insurance
programs through numerous professional organizations will lose that
coverage.

Up until now professional organizations have worked with insurance
providers to craft reduced-rate plans for their members. But thanks to the
fine print in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), on
January 1, 2014, many of these plans will fail to pass legal muster.

The College Art Association website posted a notice this month: "The New
York Life Insurance Company recently informed CAA that it will no longer
offer catastrophic healthcare coverage previously available to CAA
members."

The Entertainment Industry Group Insurance Trust (TEIGIT) website posts
the following notice: "All individual and/or Sole Proprietor Health
Insurance will terminate January 1, 2014. This includes plans acquired as
Members of our Affiliated Associations & their groups." Those affiliated
associations include the American Federation of Television and Radio
Artists, the Dramatists Guild, the Graphic Arts Guild, NY Women in Film
and Television, and many others.

This will affect huge numbers of freelance artists, musicians, disc
jockeys, and so forth.

freelance artists, designers, and musicians forced to enter the state-run
exchanges are far more likely to see their rates go up

Pelosi's vision of a world full of carefree artists, musicians, and
writers is a mirage and becoming fainter the closer we get to January 1.

265) Banned the sale of flavored cigarettes, but gave an exemption to the
most dangerous flavor

In September 2009, the Obama administration banned the sale of flavored
cigarettes, but exempted menthol from the ban. Although I am opposed to
this ban, it's this exemption that I find to be the most troubling. If
Obama thinks that flavored cigarettes are so dangerous that they deserve
to be banned, then why did he exempt one particular flavor?

The Obama administration later announced that menthol cigarettes were more
dangerous than other flavors such as cherry, cloves, chocolate, coconut,
and cinnamon, but still continued to exempt menthol from the ban. If Obama
thinks that flavored cigarettes are so dangerous that they should be
banned, then why did he knowingly continue to give an exemption to the
most dangerous flavor?

266) Tried to censor the Washington Post

In August 2013, the Washington Post reported:

The Obama administration referred all questions for this article to John
DeLong, the NSA's director of compliance, who answered questions freely in
a 90-minute interview. DeLong and members of the NSA communications staff
said he could be quoted "by name and title" on some of his answers after
an unspecified internal review. The Post said it would not permit the
editing of quotes. Two days later, White House and NSA spokesmen said that
none of DeLong's comments could be quoted on the record and sent instead a
prepared statement in his name. The Post declines to accept the substitute
language as quotations from DeLong.

267) Dumbed down math education to make wrong answers acceptable

In August 2013, the Daily Caller reported:

Quick: what's 3 x 4?

If you said 11 - or, hell, if you said 7, pi, or infinity squared - that's
just fine under the Common Core, the new national curriculum that the
Obama administration will impose on American public school students this
fall.

In a pretty amazing YouTube video, Amanda August, a curriculum coordinator
in a suburb of Chicago called Grayslake, explains that getting the right
answer in math just doesn't matter as long as kids can explain the
necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer.

"Even if they said, '3 x 4 was 11,' if they were able to explain their
reasoning and explain how they came up with their answer really in, umm,
words and oral explanation, and they showed it in the picture but they
just got the final number wrong, we're really more focused on the how,"
August says in the video.

268) Broke his promise to label genetically modified food

Before the 2008 election, Obama promised to require labeling of
genetically modified food. He broke that promise.

269) Asked the Supreme Court to allow warrantless cell phone searches

In August 2013, the Obama administration asked the U.S Supreme Court to
allow warrantless cell phone searches.

270) Used an armed SWAT team to check for water pollution

In September 2013, the Alaska Dispatch reported:

When agents with the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force surged out of
the wilderness around the remote community of Chicken wearing body armor
and jackets emblazoned with POLICE in big, bold letters, local placer
miners didn't quite know what to think.

Did it really take eight armed men and a squad-size display of
paramilitary force to check for dirty water? Some of the miners, who run
small businesses, say they felt intimidated.

Miners suggest it might have been better all around if officials had just
shown up at the door - as they used to do - and said they wanted to check
the water.

The EPA has refused to publicly explain why it used armed officers as part
of what it called a "multi-jurisdictional" investigation of possible Clean
Water Act violations in the area.

271) Purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for the Department of
Homeland Security to use in the U.S.

In March 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had purchased
1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for the Department of Homeland Security
to use in the U.S.

272) Released 2,837 convicted sex offenders from prison

In September 2013, the Obama administration released 2,837 convicted sex
offenders from prison.

Although the Obama administration had released these sex offenders in
response to a court order to alleviate prison overcrowding, it could have
released non-violent drug offenders instead. See #7 on this list for how
Obama has carried out the biggest war against medical marijuana of any
President in history.

Apparently, Obama thinks that people with doctors' prescriptions for
medical marijuana are a bigger threat than rapists and child molesters.

273) Refused to fire or prosecute Obamacare employee who released private
info of 2,400 people

In September 2013, it was reported that an Obamacare employee had released
the private information of 2,400 people. Obama refused to fire or
prosecute this Obamacare employee.

274) Tried to monitor 80% of all credit card transactions

In September 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was
trying to monitor 80% of all credit card transactions.

275) Tried to censor the AFL-CIO

In September 2013, Associated Press reported:

The AFL-CIO on Wednesday approved a resolution critical of parts of
President Barack Obama's health care law in spite of efforts by White
House officials to discourage the labor federation from making its
concerns so prominent.

The strongly worded resolution says the Affordable Care Act will drive up
the costs of union-sponsored health plans to the point that workers and
employers are forced to abandon them. Labor unions still support the law's
overall goals of reducing health costs and bringing coverage to all
Americans, the resolution says, but adds that the law is being implemented
in a way that is "highly disruptive" to union health care plans.

Some individual unions have complained about the law's impact for months.
The resolution marks the first time the nation's largest labor federation
has gone on record embracing that view. Unions were among the most
enthusiastic backers of the law when it passed in 2010.

A labor official told The Associated Press that White House officials had
been calling labor leaders for days to urge them not to voice their
concerns in the form of a resolution.

276) Falsely said that he had not declared a "red line" on Syria

In August 2012, while talking about Syria, Obama said:

"A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons
moving around or being utilized."

However, in September 2013, while talking about Syria, Obama said:

"I didn't set a red line."

277) Falsely gave himself credit for John Kerry's idea about Syria

In September 2013, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry suggested that Syria
turn over all of its chemical weapons to an international body.

The Obama's administration initially responded to Kerry's statement by
saying that Kerry had not been serious, and that his statement had just
been a "rhetorical" answer to a hypothetical question.

However, after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Kerry's
idea made sense, Obama falsely stated that he had talked about the idea a
week earlier.

278) Made it more difficult and bureaucratic for restaurant employees to
collect automatic tips from parties of eight or more

In September 2013, the Obama administration announced new paperwork
requirements for restaurants that collect automatic tips from parties of
eight or more. These new regulations create additional paperwork for
restaurants each and every time a party of eight or more leaves an
automatic tip. It also means that restaurant employees would have to wait
extra time to receive these automatic tips from parties of eight or more.
In addition, in some cases, restaurant employees might not get any tip at
all from some parties of eight or more, because their employer might
decide that the paperwork is too burdensome, and stop collecting automatic
tips altogether.

There's also the fact that Obama imposed these new regualations without
approval from Congress, which means that Obama's actions were illegal.

279) Secretly and illegally reversed NSA restrictions without approval
from Congress

In September 2013, the Washington Post reported:

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court
in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency's use of
intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search
deliberately for Americans' communications in its massive databases,
according to interviews with government officials and recently
declassified material.

In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed
to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years -
and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which
include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D.
Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Together the permission to search and to keep data longer expanded the
NSA's authority in significant ways without public debate or any specific
authority from Congress. The enlarged authority is part of a fundamental
shift in the government's approach to surveillance: collecting first, and
protecting Americans' privacy later.

The court decision allowed the NSA "to query the vast majority" of its e-
mail and phone call databases using the e-mail addresses and phone numbers
of Americans and legal residents without a warrant, according to Bates's
opinion.

The court in 2008 imposed a wholesale ban on such searches at the
government's request, said Alex Joel, civil liberties protection officer
at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The
government included this restriction "to remain consistent with NSA
policies and procedures that NSA applied to other authorized collection
activities," he said.

280) Encouraged employers to use temp agencies

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, Indiana
University would be laying off 50 of its employees and switching them to a
temp agency.

In June 2013, Time magazine wrote:

Why Temp Agencies Are Learning to Love the Affordable Care Act

Staffing companies like Robert Half International and On Assignment have
seen their stock prices soar since President Obama's reelection in
November, as the election made it nearly certain that the implementation
of the law would continue as planned. "In general [Obamacare] is viewed as
something that will lead to increases in the penetration rate of temporary
workers," says Tobey Sommer, an analyst with SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.
Firms like Robert Half International are especially well positioned to
benefit from the law, Sommer says, because they specialize in small and
medium-sized companies, the very sort that may be using temporary workers
to help them stay below that all-important 50-worker mark.

There's also an opening for staffing companies to present themselves as
experts in the labor rules of the Obamacare law, and as a resource that
other businesses can turn to for help with its many rules and regulations.
"The increasing burden of these regulations will cause some clients to
throw up their hands and say, 'I can't deal with all of this," says
Sommer. And when that happens, a full-service staffing company could be
the perfect place to seek help navigating the unknown waters of Obamacare.

281) Encouraged layoffs of health care workers

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, Emory
Healthcare, which is in Georgia, would be laying off more than 100 of its
employees.

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, the
Cleveland Clinic would be laying off some of its employees.

282) Encouraged insurance companies to reduce their customers' choices of
doctors and hospitals

In September 2013, the Los Angeles Times reported:

The doctor can't see you now.

Consumers may hear that a lot more often after getting health insurance
under President Obama's Affordable Care Act.

To hold down premiums, major insurers in California have sharply limited
the number of doctors and hospitals available to patients in the state's
new health insurance market opening Oct. 1.

New data reveal the extent of those cuts in California, a crucial test bed
for the federal healthcare law.

These diminished medical networks are fueling growing concerns that many
patients will still struggle to get care despite the nation's biggest
healthcare expansion in half a century.

Consumers could see long wait times, a scarcity of specialists and loss of
a longtime doctor.

In September 2013, the New York Times reported:

... under President Obama's health care law... many insurers are
significantly limiting the choices of doctors and hospitals available to
consumers.

From California to Illinois to New Hampshire, and in many states in
between, insurers are... restricting the number of providers who will
treat patients in their new health plans.

... insurers... have created smaller networks of doctors and hospitals
than are typically found in commercial insurance.

Consumers should be prepared for "much tighter, narrower networks" of
doctors and hospitals, said Adam M. Linker, a health policy analyst at the
North Carolina Justice Center, a statewide advocacy group.

In a new study, the Health Research Institute of PricewaterhouseCoopers,
the consulting company, says that "insurers passed over major medical
centers" when selecting providers in California, Illinois, Indiana,
Kentucky and Tennessee, among other states.

Juan Carlos Davila, an executive vice president of Blue Shield of
California, said the network for its exchange plans... did not include
the five medical centers of the University of California.

Daniel R. Hawkins Jr., a senior vice president of the National Association
of Community Health Centers, which represents 9,000 clinics around the
country, said: "... insurers have shown little interest in including us
in their provider networks."

Dr. Bruce Siegel, the president of America's Essential Hospitals, formerly
known as the National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems,
said insurers were telling his members: "We don't want you in our network.
We are worried about having your patients, who are sick and have
complicated conditions."

In New Hampshire, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, a unit of WellPoint,
one of the nation's largest insurers, has touched off a furor by excluding
10 of the state's 26 hospitals from the health plans that it will sell
through the insurance exchange.

283) Encouraged a hospital to close

In September 2013, WCYB reported:

Jonesville, Va. - A local hospital is closing its doors.

Wellmont Health System is citing unprecedented changes in health care as
the reason for closing Lee Regional Medical Center.

Company officials say three reasons led to the decision reimbursement cuts
associated with the Affordable Care Act, extremely low community use of
the hospital and a lack of consistent physician coverage.

Lee Regional will cease all operations on October 1.

284) Required doctors to ask patients sexual questions and put their
answers in an electronic database

In September 2013, it was reported that Obamacare requires doctors to ask
patients personal questions about their sex lives, and to put their
answers into an electronic database. Doctors who avoid doing this will be
penalized.

Dr. Adam Budzikowski, a New York cardiologist, said these sex question
were "insensitive, stupid and very intrusive," and that he could not think
of any reason why a cardiologist would need such information.

Dr. Richard Amerling, an associate professor of medicine at Albert
Einstein Medical College, said that a patient's medical record should be
"a story created by you and your doctor solely for your treatment and
benefit," and that Obamacare turns doctor appointments "into an
interrogation, and the data will not be confidential."

The New York Civil Liberties Union said that these requirements were a
violation of patients' privacy.

The Obama administration said that patients who wished to keep their
information out of the electronic database should pay in cash.

285) Listed wrong prices for Obamacare

On September 20, 2013, just 10 days before the Obamacare exchanges were
legally required to be ready, it was reported that they had the wrong
prices.

286) Made it easier for people to commit health care fraud

In September 2013, CNBC reported:

Deep staff cuts are hitting a federal agency responsible for investigating
health care fraud just as Obamacare is due to kick in, leaving less people
to investigate an ever-growing crime that costs taxpayers billions of
dollars.

And in a perverse twist, the funding cuts at the Health and Human Services
Department's Inspector General's Office might save money in the short term
for the U.S. taxpayer. But over the long run, more money that could have
been recouped from the fraud cases now going unpursued, is being left on
the table, the agency said.

For every $1 spent on health-care fraud probes, nearly $8 is recouped in
fines, restitution or settlements, according to HHS.

287) Included a so-called "family glitch" in his health care reform

In September 2013, USA Today reported:

A so-called "family glitch" in the 2010 health care law threatens to cost
some families thousands of dollars in health insurance costs and leave up
to 500,000 children without coverage, insurance and health care analysts
say.

That's unless Congress fixes the problem, which seems unlikely given the
House's latest move Friday to strip funding from the law, which is also
called the Affordable Care Act.

Congress defined "affordable" as 9.5% or less of an employee's household
income, mostly to make sure people did not leave their workplace plans for
subsidized coverage through the exchanges. But the "error" was that it
only applies to the employee - and not his or her family. So, if an
employer offers a woman affordable insurance, but doesn't provide it for
her family, they cannot get subsidized help through the state health
exchanges.

That can make a huge difference; the Kaiser Family Foundation said an
average plan for an individual is about $5,600, but it goes up to $15,700
for families.

288) Made it harder for Canadian politicians to get health care

Canada has had so-called "universal health care" for a long time.

However, when Robert Bourassa, the premier of Quebec, Canada, needed
cancer treatment, he came to the United States and paid for his health
care with his own money.

And when Canadian Liberal MP Belinda Stronach needed cancer treatment, she
also came to the United States and paid for her health care with her own
money.

And when Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams needed heart
surgery, he, too, came to the United States and paid for his health care
with his own money.

Now that Obama has given the U.S. so-called "universal health care," where
will Canadian politicians go when they get sick?

289) Gave married couples an annual tax of up to $11,028 for being married
instead of single

In front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration argued that
Obamacare is a tax.

According to the Obamacare calulator, Obamacare places an annual tax on
married couples for being married instead of single. The amount of this
tax depends upon the ages, incomes, and parental status of the married
couple.

According to the Obamacare calculator, the extreme case of this tax occurs
with a 60-year-old married couple with no children, where the two spouses
have identical incomes totaling $62,041 per year. Under this scenario,
according to the Obamacare calculator, Obamacare gives them an annual tax
of $11,028 for being married instead of single.

290) Gave people an annual tax increase of up to $12,214 for earning one
more dollar of income

In front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration argued that
Obamacare is a tax.

Obamacare gives some people a tax increase if they increase their income
by one dollar. The amount of this tax increase depends upon the person's
age, income, and marital status.

According to the Obamacare calculator, the extreme case of this occurs
with a 64-year-old married couple with a combined income of $62,041. Under
this scenario, according to the Obamacare calulator, Obamacare gives them
an annual tax increase of $12,214 when their income increases by one
dollar, in the case of their income going from $62,040 to $62,041.

This amounts to a marginal tax rate of 1,221,400%. That's not a typo - the
marginal tax rate on that one dollar of additional income is more than one
million per cent.

291) Refused to fire IRS employees who "lost" $67 million from Obamacare
"slush fund"

In September 2013, it was reported that IRS employees had "lost" $67
million from a "slush fund." Obama refused to fire those employees. Obama
had created the "slush fund" as part of Obamacare.

292) Refused to fire ATF employees who "lost" 420 million cigarettes

In September 2013, it was reported that ATF employees had "lost" 420
million cigarettes. Obama refused to fire them.

293) Falsely said his mother's insurance company had refused to pay for
her cancer treatment

During the 2008 election campaign, Obama falsely said that his mother's
health insurance company had refused to pay for her cancer treatment.

294) Had 19.5 million fake Twitter followers

As of September 2013, Obama had 19.5 million fake Twitter followers.

295) Illegally delayed online registration of Obamacare for small
businesses

Obamacare requires that the online registration for small businesses be
ready by October 1, 2013. However, five days before that date, Associated
Press reported that this deadline would not be met.

296) Encouraged 30,000 Puget Sound grocery workers to vote in favor of
authorizing a strike

In September 2013, a union representing 30,000 employees at Safeway, Fred
Meyer, QFC, and Albertson's in the Puget Sound area of Washington state
voted in favor of authorizing a strike. Union members said that one of
their reasons for voting in favor of the strike was that their employers
were trying to switch their part time employees form employer provided
insurance to the Obamacare exchanges.

297) Waived the U.S. ban on arming terrorists

In September 2013, the Washington Examiner reported:

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the
supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to
provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian
dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic
terrorist groups, including al Qaeda

The law allows the president to waive those prohibitions if he "determines
that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of
the United States."

298) Caused a family's monthly insurance premium to increase from $333 to
$965

Andy and Amy Mangione and their two sons live in Louisville, Kentucky. In
September 2013, they received a letter from Humana, their insurance
company, which said that Obamacare would be causing their monthly premium
to increase from $333 to $965.

299) Caused Michelle Malkin's family to lose their health insurance policy

In September 2013, conservative writer Michelle Malkin, who has always
opposed Obamacare, wrote:

Like an estimated 22 million other Americans, I am a self-employed small-
business owner who buys health insurance for my family directly on the
individual market. We have a high-deductible PPO plan that allows us to
choose from a wide range of doctors.

Or rather, we had such a plan.

Last week, our family received notice from Anthem BlueCross BlueShield of
Colorado that we can no longer keep the plan we like because of "changes
from health care reform (also called the Affordable Care Act or ACA)." The
letter informed us that "(t)o meet the requirements of the new laws, your
current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date."

This isn't just partisan business. It's personal. Our cancellation letter
states that Anthem is "not going to be selling new individual PPO plans."
When we asked whether we could keep our children's doctors, an agent for
Anthem told my husband and me she didn't know.

300) Tried to force Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic
organizations to violate their religious principles

In September 2013, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty sued the Obama
administration on behalf of Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic
charity. Other Catholic organizations were also represented in the
lawsuit.

Sister Loraine Marie said of this lawsuit:

"We cannot violate our vows by participating in the government's program
to provide access to abortion-inducing drugs."

Mark Rienzi, one of the lawyers representing these Catholic organizations,
said:

"These women just want to take care of the elderly poor without being
forced to violate the faith that animates their work. The money they
collect should be used to care for the poor like it always has - and not
to pay the IRS."

On October 24, 2013, the Daily Caller reported:

Health insurance cancellation notices soar above Obamacare enrollment
rates

Hundreds of thousands of Americans who purchase their own health insurance
have received cancellation notices since August because the plans do not
meet Obamacare's requirements.

The number of cancellation notices greatly exceed the number of Obamacare
enrollees.

402) Was still falsely claiming that people could keep their insurance on

During the first 24 hours after the Obamacare website went online, only
six people used the website to enroll in Obamacare.

409) Obama falsely blamed insurance companies for canceling policies that
did not meet Obamacare's minimum requirements

Obamacare requires all insurance policies to cover pre-existing
conditions, maternity care, treatment for heroin addiction, and certain
other things.

Therefore, based on simple logic, any policies that do not cover these
things are rendered illegal by Obamacare, and must be canceled.

The Washington Post said of this:

"Beginning Jan. 1, the new plans must cover 10 essential benefits
including pediatric care, prescription drugs, mental-health services and
maternity care. In general, policies that don't offer those can't be sold
after 2013."

However, after insurance companies canceled these policies, Obama blamed
the cancellations on the insurance companies instead of on Obamacare.

Act, commonly known as Obamacare.

415) Kathleen Sebelius said the Obamacare website "has never crashed" at
the exact same time that it was crashing

On October 30, 2013, while giving federal testimony on the Obamacare
website, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that
the Obamacare website

able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no
matter what."

However, on November 4, 2013, Obama said:

"Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act
came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can
keep it if it hasn't changed since the law passed."

"If you misrepresent what's in this plan, we will call you out."

However, as of November 2013, Obama has not "called himself out" for lying
about what was in Obamacare. He has not "called himself out" for falsely
saying that people could keep their insurance. He has not "called himself

433) Obama used fraudulent accounting to overstate the number of people
who had "enrolled" in Obamacare

In November 2013, the Washington Post reported:

Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? The Obama administration settles on a
definition.

The fight over how to define the new health law's success is coming down
to one question: Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee?

Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan
once they've submitted a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a
member card and begins paying doctor bills.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later
this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count
people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting
in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

434) In June 2010, the Obama administration estimated that 93 million

440) "4 Things The US Government Accomplished In Less Time Than A Working
Obamacare Website"

In November 2013, camharris.us reported:

4 Things The US Government Accomplished In Less Time Than A Working
Obamacare Website

From the day that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act went into
effect to the morning that the federal healthcare exchange went live, 1288
days passed. 3 years, 6 months, and 8 days. In all that time, our federal
government could not construct a website that actually worked, and we are
still waiting for a final product.

Here are 4 things the United States government accomplished in less time
than it has taken to build a working website:

1. We Fought World War I

April 6, 1917-November 11, 1918

1 years, 7 months, 6 days

2. We Fought A Bigger War

December 7, 1941-May 8, 1945

3 years, 5 months, 2 days

3. We Built The Bomb

June 17, 1942-July 16,1945

3 years, 1 month

4. We Orbited A Man Around The Earth

October 7, 1958-February 20, 1962

3 years, 4 months, 13 days

441) Falsely claimed credit for the increase in domestic oil production

During Obama's Presidency, domestic oil production increased, and the
Obama administration claimed credit for it. However, this increase only
happened on privately owned land and state owned land, which Obama had no
control over. On land that is owned by the federal government, oil
production actually went down.

444) Banned Navy SEALs from wearing the "Don't Tread on Me" Navy Jack
patch on their uniforms

For more than 200 years, the "Don't Tread on Me" Navy Jack flag has been a
well respected symbol of the U.S. Navy.

However, in October 2013, the Obama administration banned Navy SEALs from
wearing a patch of it on their uniforms.

445) Gave 655 "tax refunds" to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 to a
single address in Shanghai

In 2012, the Obama administration gave 655 "tax refunds" to a single
address in Lithuania, and 343 to a single address in Shanghai.

446) Banned the linking of terrorism to radical Islam during training of
anti-terrorism agents

Although the Fort Hood shooter, the shoe bomber, and underwear bomber, and
100% of the 9-11 terrorists were all radical Muslims, the Obama
administration enacted a ban on associating terrorism with radical Islam
during training exercises of anti-terrrorism agents.

447) During Obamacare's first month, only 106,185 people enrolled

On November 12, 2013, it was reported that during October 2013, only
106,185 people had enrolled in Obamacare. And even this pathetically low
number is fraudulently overstated, because it includes people who had left
insurance policies in their shopping cart without paying for them. No
legitimate online retailer counts unpaid items left in the shopping cart
as a sale.

448) Less than 1% of Massachusetts citizens who lost their insurance
because of Obamacare have signed up for a new policy at the Obamacare
website

On November 9, 2013, the Boston Herald reported:

Just weeks before a Jan. 1 enrollment deadline, state officials admitted
yesterday that just 1 percent of the 150,000 Bay Staters facing canceled
heath insurance under Obamacare rules have signed up for new plans.

Massachusetts Health Connector officials told the Herald that only 549
applicants - out of the 150,000 Bay Staters forced to switch their health
plans to comply with Obamacare rules - are poised to receive insurance
through the new system.

449) "The Obamacare Exchange Scorecard: Around 100,000 Enrollees And Five
Million Cancellations"

On November 12, 2013, Forbes reported:

The Obamacare Exchange Scorecard: Around 100,000 Enrollees And Five
Million Cancellations

HHS has released the official numbers here. The HHS report states that
only 26,794 people enrolled in the federal exchange-which amounts to 23
per state per day-and 79,391 enrolled in the state-based exchanges, for a
total of 106,185.

In the market for individually-purchased health insurance, more than 4.8
million Americans have received notices that their preexisting plans are
soon to be illegal, and will be cancelled. Many more cancellation notices
are imminent.

450) Obama told insurance companies to break the law

On November 14, 2013, after insurance companies had canceled policies that
did not meet the minimum requirements of Obamacare, Obama told them to
restore these policies. However, he did this without Congress voting to
approve these changes to Obamacare. The President does not have the legal
authority to change a law that was passed by Congress, without those
changes first being approved by Congress.

451) Obama falsely said "In the first month alone, we've seen more than
100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance
plans"

On November 18, 2013, Obama said:

"In the first month alone, we've seen more than 100 million Americans
already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans."

In reality, the actual number was 106,185.

452) Jessica Sanford, whom Obama had cited as an Obamacare success story,
later said she could not afford to buy an Obamacare policy

Jessica Sanford is a a self-employed single mother from Washington state,
who earns slightly less than $50,000 a year, and has not had health
insurance for 15 years.

On October 21, 2013, Obama cited Sanford as an Obamacare success story,
because she would be able to purchase an Obamacare policy for herself and
her son for only $169 per month.

However, a month later, it was reported that the Obamacare website had
quoted the wrong price for Sanford. Her true, actual price was $621. She
said that she could not afford this, and that she would just pay the
penalty instead.

453) Video shows students at historically black college complaining that
Obamacare caused them to lose their insurance

Bowie University is a historically black college in Maryland. This video
shows students from the college complaining about how Obamacare caused
them to lose their insurance:


454) "Obama brings chilling effect on journalism"

In October 2013, Associated Press reported:

Obama brings chilling effect on journalism

A report finds the U.S. government's aggressive prosecution of leaks and
efforts to control information are having a chilling effect on journalists
and government whistle-blowers.

The Committee to Protect Journalists released its first examination of
U.S. press freedoms Thursday, focusing on changes under the Obama
administration.

Leonard Downie Jr., a former executive editor of The Washington Post,
wrote the 30-page analysis entitled "The Obama Administration and the
Press." Downie interviewed reporters and editors who described a chilling
effect in which "government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to
the press."

Those suspected of discussing classified information are subject to
investigation, lie-detector tests and scrutiny of telephone and email
records.

455) Sued a trucking company that fired Muslim truck drivers for refusing
to drive trucks carrying alcoholic beverages

In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a
trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck
drivers who had refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic
beverages.

456) Gave personal information of thousands of bookstore customers to
dozens of federal agencies

In November 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had given
the names, social security numbers, and other personal information of
thousands of bookstore customers to dozens of fedeal agencies, including
the IRS, CIA, NSA, and FDA.

457) Created fake unemployment statistics before the 2012 election

Soon before the 2012 election, the Obama administration created fake
statistics to make the unemployment rate appear lower than it actually
was.

458) "White House blocks access to Obama events, news groups say"

In November 2013, McClatchy reported:

White House blocks access to Obama events, news groups say

The nation's largest news organizations lodged a complaint Thursday
against the White House for imposing unprecedented limitations on
photojournalists covering President Barack Obama, which they say have
harmed the public's ability to monitor its own government.

The organizations accuse the White House of banning photojournalists from
covering Obama at some events, and then later releasing its own photos and
videos of the same events.

"Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or
videotape the president while he is performing his official duties,"
according to a letter the organizations sent to the White House. "As
surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist's camera lens,
officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an
independent view of important functions of the executive branch of
government."

"You are only seeing what they want you to see," said Lucy Dalglish, the
dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of
Maryland.

the news organizations stressed that they're referring only to
presidential activities of a "fundamentally public nature," not private or
restricted events, including ones that may affect national security.

Examples cited in the letter are Obama's meetings with the Congressional
Hispanic Caucus on July 10, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on
July 29 and Pakistani human rights activist Malala Yousafzai on Oct. 11.

In each case, journalists weren't allowed - and sometimes were unaware -
of the event. The White House later released written summaries of the
events, along with photos taken by a government photographer.

On Thursday, the presidents of the American Society of News Editors and
the Associated Press Media Editors sent a letter to their members urging
them to stop using handout photos and video from the White House.

"We must accept that we, the press, have been enablers," the letter says.
"We urge those of you in news organizations to immediately refrain from
publishing any of the photographs or videos released by the White House,
just as you would refuse to run verbatim a press release from them."

Harry Walker, the director of the McClatchy-Tribune Photo Service, said
opening access to events was "the foundation for journalism, not just
photojournalism."

The letter was signed by 38 news organizations, including all the major
broadcast and cable networks, wire services, online services and
newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and the
McClatchy Co., which owns 30 daily newspapers across the nation.

459) Three days after the Egyptian government murdered dozens of Egyptian
civilians, the Obama administration announced it would give military aid
to the Egyptian government, which, soon afterward, murdered hundreds of
additional Egyptian civilians

On April 12, 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had just
given four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, and that it had also given them
eight others on earlier dates.

On July 8, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had murdered
at least 51 Egyptian civilians who had been protesting against the
Egyptian government.

Three days later, it was reported that the Obama administration would be
giving four additional F-16 fighter jets to the Egyptian government.

On July 27, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had
murdered at least 72 additional Egyptian civilians who had been protesting
against the Egyptian government.

On August 15, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had
murdered more than 600 additional Egyptian civilians who had been
protesting against the Egyptian government.

460) Spent $1.5 million to help women in Brazil quit smoking

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration would be
spending $1.5 million to help women in Brazil quit smoking.

461) "NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds"

In August 2013, the Washington Post reported:

NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds

The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its
legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the
agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other
top-secret documents.

Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or
foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are
restricted by statute and executive order.

The NSA audit obtained by The Post, dated May 2012, counted 2,776
incidents in the preceding 12 months of unauthorized collection, storage,
access to or distribution of legally protected communications.

462) Announced plans to illegally regulate greenhouse gas emissions
without approval from Congress

In August 2013, the Obama administration announced that it planned to
regulate greenhouse gas emissions without approval from Congress. Without
approval from Congress, Obama's actions would be illegal.

463) Refused to answer question about whether or not people who don't buy
insurance should be put in jail

The Obama administration argued in front of the Supreme Court that the
Obamacare mandate was a tax. Obama hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run
Obamacare. In this video, ABC News asked Obama whether or not he thinks
that people who don't buy insurance should be put in jail. Obama refused
to answer the question. Even after the interviewer asked Obama the
question a second time, Obama still refused to answer it.

464) An estimated 70% of California doctors will not participate in
Obamacare

In December 2013, the California Medical Association estimated that 70% of
California doctors would not be participating in Obamacare.

465) California's Obamacare website gave out the contact information of
tens of thousands of people without their permission

In December 2013, it was reported that California's Obamacare website had
given private insurance agents the names, addresses, phone numbers, and
email addresses of tens of thousands of people without their permission.

466) Made it easy for a future Republican President to give every U.S.
citizen a permanent Obamacare waiver, without approval from Congress

The President does not have any legal authority to change the law without
those changes first being approved by Congress. However, this list
contains many examples of Obama making changes to Obamacare without
approval from Congress. Some of these changes involve Obama giving
Obamacare waivers to unions who supported the passage of Obamacare. Other
changes include Obama delaying certain parts of Obamacare. Obama made
these changes illegally, because they were not approved by Congress. With
a small number of exceptions, Democrats have not criticized Obama for
doing this.

Therefore, in the future, if a Republican President were to give permanent
Obamacare waivers to every U.S. citizens without approval from Congress,
the vast majority of Democrats would be hypocrites if they objected to it.

467) Obamacare encourages patients to rig the system to rip off doctors,
repeatedly, year after year after year

In November 2013, Forbes reported:

Obamacare has... a 90-day grace period. This means people can buy an
Obamacare policy, have costly procedures done and then cancel the policy
within 90 days. If the cancellation comes during the first 30 days, the
insurer is responsible for trying to collect payment, but after that,
doctors are on their own. They would have to spend time and money chasing
patients for payments. California Healthline reported that deadbeats
"would not receive a fine, a premium rate increase or a repayment order.
They also would not be barred from purchasing another subsidized plan
during the next enrollment period." No other type of health insurance has
a 90-day grace period like this.

468) Tech experts said that a properly working Obamacare website should
not have cost more than $10 million, whereas the defective version built
by Michelle Obama's incompetent Princeton classmate had actually cost $634
million

Instead of hiring competent programmers to create the Obamacare website,
Obama hired CGI Federal, a company that was run by Toni Townes-Whitley,
who attended Princeton University with Michelle Obama. When the defective
Obamacare website went online on October 1, 2013, it had already cost $634
million.

However, David Kennedy, president of the technology firm TrustedSec, said
that even if the Obamacare website had worked properly, it should not have
cost more than $10 million. Luke Chung, president and founder of the
technology firm FMS, said he agreed with Mr. Kennedy.

469) Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, and several other Democratic Senators who
voted for Obamacare, have exempted their own staff from Obamacare

In December 2013, Yahoo News reported:

Harry Reid exempts some of his Senate staff from Obamacare exchanges

One of the biggest public supporters of the Affordable Care Act has
reportedly decided that some of his staff should be exempted from the new
law.

CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the only top
congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy
insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

Yahoo News has reached out to the offices of all 100 U.S. senators to see
if any other members have exempted committee staff from the federal
exchange. So far, the offices of 42 senators have responded to our
inquiry, with 37 saying that the senator and their entire staff will
switch over to the exchanges in January.

The offices of Ron Wyden, Tim Johnson, Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray and
Thomas Carper, all Democrats, said they were exempting some of their
staff. Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, has not responded.

470) In a contest for videos to promote Obamacare, the Obama
administration gave first prize to a video called "Forget About the Price
Tag"

The Obama administration held a contest where it asked people to make
videos to support Obamacare. The Obama administration awarded first prize
to a video called "Forget About the Price Tag." The video can be seen at


471) Broke his promise to have the Obamacare website fixed by November 30,
2013

On October 25, 2013, White House spokesman Jeffrey Zients said:

"By the end of November, the vast majority of consumers will be able to
successfully and smoothly enroll through Healthcare.gov"

However, on December 1, 2013, the New York Times reported:

Insurers Claim Health Website Is Still Flawed

The problem is that the systems that are supposed to deliver consumer
information to insurers still have not been fixed. And with coverage for
many people scheduled to begin in just 30 days, insurers are worried the
repairs may not be completed in time.

"Until the enrollment process is working from end to end, many consumers
will not be able to enroll in coverage," said Karen M. Ignagni, president
of America's Health Insurance Plans, a trade group.

The issues are vexing and complex. Some insurers say they have been
deluged with phone calls from people who believe they have signed up for a
particular health plan, only to find that the company has no record of the
enrollment.

472) Democratic aides who supported the passage of Obamacare said their
new Obamacare premiums are "simply unacceptable"

In December 2013, Politico reported:

Older Hill aides shocked by Obamacare prices

Veteran House Democratic aides are sick over the insurance prices they'll
pay under Obamacare, and they're scrambling to find a cure.

"In a shock to the system, the older staff in my office (folks over 59)
have now found out their personal health insurance costs (even with the
government contribution) have gone up 3-4 times what they were paying
before," Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), wrote to
fellow Democratic chiefs of staff in an email message obtained by
POLITICO. "Simply unacceptable."

In the email, Ta noted that older congressional staffs may leave their
jobs because of the change to their health insurance.

473) Members of Congress and their staff are exempt from the income limits
for Obamacare subsidies that apply to everyone else

Most people are eligible for Obamacare subsidies only if their income is
no more than 400% of the poverty level. For a family of four, 400% of the
poverty level is $94,200. A family of four with income higher than that
amount it not eligible for an Obamacare subsidy.

However, members of Congress and their staff are exempt from this limit.
Members of Congress are paid $174,000 a year. Because of their special
exemption, a middle aged member of Congress who is married and has
children, will get a special Obamacare subsidy of $10,000.

474) Obamacare website often doesn't tell insurance companies about
customers who "bought" insurance

On December 1, 2013, the New York Times reported:

Some insurers say they have been deluged with phone calls from people who
believe they have signed up for a particular health plan, only to find
that the company has no record of the enrollment.

475) Obama's nominee to head the IRS has "little tax experience"

In December 2013, Reuters reported:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Senate panel hearing on President Barack Obama's
nominee to head the Internal Revenue Service was set to resume Wednesday
after it was abruptly halted on Tuesday at a Republican senator's request,
committee aides said.

John Koskinen, a 74-year-old lawyer with little tax experience chosen by
Obama to take over the beleaguered IRS, traveled up to Capitol Hill to
face the Senate Finance Committee, but the session did not last long.

476) Obama said we should raise the minimum wage, but barackobama.com
advertised for "unpaid" interns

In February 2013, Obama said:

"Tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who
works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal
minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. This single step would raise the incomes of
millions of working families. It could mean the difference between
groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally
getting ahead. For businesses across the country, it would mean customers
with more money in their pockets. In fact, working folks shouldn't have to
wait year after year for the minimum wage to go up while CEO pay has never
been higher. So here's an idea that Governor Romney and I actually agreed
on last year: let's tie the minimum wage to the cost of living, so that it
finally becomes a wage you can live on."

However, barackobama.com advertised for "unpaid" interns. The bolding is
mine:

477) Falsely said that he had never lived with his drunk driving, illegal
alien uncle

In 2011, the Obama administration said that Obama had never lived with his
drunk driving, illegal alien uncle. However, in December 2013, it was
reported that Obama actually had lived with him.

478) In New York City, thousands of Obama voting, well educated, upper
class professionals complained about losing their insurance because of
Obamacare

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

With Affordable Care Act, Canceled Policies for New York Professionals

Many in New York's professional and cultural elite have long supported
President Obama's health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands
of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers
and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being
canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they
can find it.

"I couldn't sleep because of it," said Barbara Meinwald, a solo
practitioner lawyer in Manhattan.

Ms. Meinwald, 61, has been paying $10,000 a year for her insurance through
the New York City Bar. A broker told her that a new temporary plan with
fewer doctors would cost $5,000 more, after factoring in the cost of her
medications.

Roy Lyons, managing director of Marsh U.S. Consumer, an insurance
brokerage, said he had heard complaints from physicians, lawyers,
pharmacists and optometrists.

Among those affected are members of the Authors Guild; the Advertising
Photographers of America; the Suzuki Association of the Americas, a music
teachers organization; the Society of Children's Book Writers and
Illustrators; the New York City Bar Association; and the New York County
Medical Society.

It is not lost on many of the professionals that they are exactly the sort
of people - liberal, concerned with social justice - who supported the
Obama health plan in the first place. Ms. Meinwald, the lawyer, said she
was a lifelong Democrat who still supported better health care for all,
but had she known what was in store for her, she would have voted for Mitt
Romney.

It is an uncomfortable position for many members of the creative classes
to be in.

"We are the Obama people," said Camille Sweeney, a New York writer and
member of the Authors Guild. Her insurance is being canceled, and she is
dismayed that neither her pediatrician nor her general practitioner
appears to be on the exchange plans. What to do has become a hot topic on
Facebook and at dinner parties frequented by her fellow writers and
artists.

"I'm for it," she said. "But what is the reality of it?"

479) Washington state's Obamacare website stole money from people's
checking accounts

In December 2013, KGW reported that the Obamacare website for Washington
state had stolen money from people's checking accounts.

480) Illegally ordered insurance companies to cover "customers" who had
never paid any premiums

In December 2013, Obama ordered insurance companies to cover "customers"
who had never paid any premiums. Obama's action was illegal because it
violated the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment. It was also illegal
because he did not have approval from Congress.

481) Millennials who voted for Obama and supported the passage of
Obamacare did not want to purchase Obamacare insurance for themselves

In December 2013, it was reported that most of the Millennials who had
voted for Obama and had supported the passage of Obamacare did not want to
purchase Obamacare insurance for themselves.

482) Obamcare website violated federal security laws

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obamacare website was in
violation of federal security laws.

483) Refused to answer questions about how many of Obamacare's so-called
"enrollees" had actually paid their first month's premium

On December 11, 2013, more than two months after the Obamacare website had
gone online, the Obama administration still refused to answer questions
about how many of Obamacare's so-called "enrollees" had actually paid
their first month's premium. Instead, the Obama administration was still
fraudulently counting as "enrollees" people who had put Obamacare policies
into their shopping cart without actually paying for them. No legitimate
online retailer counts unpaid items left in the shopping cart as sales.

484) Illegally delayed Obamacare's online SHOP enrollment by one year

In November 2013, it was reported that Obama had delayed Obamacare's
online SHOP enrollment by one year. Because Obama did this without
approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

485) Ten different Obamacare "customer service" representatives refused to
let cancer survivor Lynn Baklor sign up for Obamacare

Lynn Baklor lives in Maryland, and is a survivor of breast cancer. Over a
period of two months, she spoke on the phone with ten different "customer
service" representatives from Obamacare, and none of them allowed her to
sign up for Obamacare. The Obamacare website was not working either. A
WBAL news report on her situation can be seen at


486) Obama's nominee to head the defense department said he did not know
much about the military

In January 2013, Chuck Hagel, Obama's nominee to head the defense
department, said he did not know much about the military.

487) Federal judge said Obama's bulk collection of phone records was
unconstitutional

In December 2013, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon said that Obama's
bulk collection of phone records violated the fourth amendment's
prohibition against unreasonable searches. It was Edward Snowden, a former
NSA employee, who had first revealed to the public that Obama had been
engaging in this unconstitutional activity.

488) Gave out even more illegal Obamacare waivers

On December 19, 2013, Obama gave exemptions from the Obamacare mandate to
people whose insurance had been canceled due to Obamacare. Because Obama
gave out these exemptions without approval from Congress, his action was
illegal.

489) Obamacare creates a new 2% tax on every insurance plan

Obamacare creates a new 2% tax on every insurance plan. This breaks
Obama's promise that he would not raise taxes on families making less than
$250,000 per year.

490) Obamacare requires some people to pay 19% of their income for
premiums

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

A 60-year-old living in Polk County, in northwestern Wisconsin, and
earning $50,000 a year, for example, would have to spend more than 19
percent of his income, or $9,801 annually, to buy one of the cheapest
plans available there.

491) Six Democratic Senators who voted for Obamacare complained that it
was causing voters in their districts to lose insurance

In December 2013, six Democratic Senators who had voted for Obamacare
wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius,
complaining that Obamacare was causing voters in their districts to lose
insurance.

492) Admitted that the so-called "Affordable" Care Act was actually
"unaffordable" for some people

In December 2013, the Obama administration admitted that the so-called
"Affordable" Care Act was actually "unaffordable" for some people.

493) 53% of people without insurance disapprove of Obamacare

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

Americans who lack medical coverage disapprove of President Obama's health
care law at roughly the same rate as the insured, even though most say
they struggle to pay for basic care, according to the latest New York
Times/CBS News poll.

Fifty-three percent of the uninsured disapprove of the law, the poll
found, compared with 51 percent of those who have health coverage. A third
of the uninsured say the law will help them personally, but about the same
number think it will hurt them, with cost a leading concern.

494) Under certain circumstances, Obamacare recipients between the ages of
55 and 64 can have their homes seized by the government after they die

Under certain circumstances, when someone between the ages of 55 and 64
participates in Obamacare, then after they die, the government can seize
their home, preventing their children from inheriting it.

495) PolitiFact repeatedly changed its rating of Obama's promise that
people could keep their insurance, based on how many Presidential
elections he still had left

PolitiFact is a left wing organization that rates the truthfulness of
statements made by politicians. Regarding Obama's promise that people
could keep their insurance, PolitiFact has given out three different
ratings.

In October 2008, when Obama still had two Presidential elections coming
up, PolitiFact rated his statement as "true."

In June 2012, when Obama only had one more Presidential election coming
up, PolitiFact rated his statement as "half true."

In December 2013, when Obama could no longer run for President ever again,
PolitiFact rated his statement as "lie of the year."

In all three of these cases, PolitiFact was rating the exact same
statement. So why did they keep changing their rating? The best
explanation that I can think of is that as Obama had fewer and fewer
Presidential elections coming up, they were willing to be more and more
accurate in their ratings. So only when he was no longer able to run for
President again, were they finally willing to admit the truth about his
statement.

496) Obamacare supporters at Democratic Underground later complained about
it

For some really hilarious displays of shock and outrage by supporters of
Obamacare at how it's harming people, check out these threads at
Democratic Underground: one, two, three, four, five, six, and seven.

497) Commander-in-Chief Obama adopted lower military standards so
unqualified women could serve in combat

In December 2013, NPR reported:

Starting Jan. 1, every woman in the Marines Corps was supposed to meet a
new physical standard by performing three pullups. But that has been put
off.

The three pullups is already the minimum required for all male Marines.
Now the Marine Corps has postponed the plan, and that's raising questions
about whether women have the physical strength to handle ground combat,
which they'll be allowed to do beginning in 2016.

Why does this matter?

Well, the same NPR article continued:

The Marine Corps has been using it to test upper body strength for men for
more than 40 years. And that upper body strength, they say, is necessary
to serve in ground combat: to pull yourself out of a canal in Afghanistan,
to climb over a mud wall, to carry an ammunition box.

And a CNS News article on the subject stated:

Pull-ups have been used to test Marines' upper body strength for over 40
years. The ability to pull-up one's own body weight over a bar shows the
upper body strength that, in combat, is needed to lift fallen comrades,
pull one's self over a wall, and carry heavy munitions. Combat Marines
also carry a pack that weighs around 90 pounds, with gunners carrying an
additional 50 or 60 pounds.

In other words, this qualification is by no means trivial. On the
contrary, this involves skills that are necessary in combat - necessary
for saving the soldier's own life, as well as for saving the lives of
other soldiers.

Obama, who is Commander-in-Chief of the military, is saying that he's
perfectly OK with allowing unqualified women to go into combat, even if it
means that their lack of qualifications could end up killing them, as well
as killing other U.S. soldiers who depend on them.

498) Had double standard for hate crime laws

When someone participated in the so-called "knockout game," the Obama
administration filed hate crime charges when a white person attacked a
black person, but not when a black person attacked a white person.

499) Tried to prevent federal judge from ruling on NSA surveillance

In December 2013, the Obama administration tried to prevent a federal
judge from ruling on NSA surveillance efforts.

500) Illegally tried to avoid disclosure of a foreign aid directive that
he had signed

In December 2013, a federal judge ruled that Obama's attempt to avoid
disclosure of a foreign aid directive that he had signed in 2010 was
illegal.

On 8 Aug 2016 00:39:25 -0400, Bradley K. Sherman says...
In American history, we've never had a President
who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.

101) Falsely claimed that his "Cash for Clunkers" program would help the
environment

Although Obama claimed that his "Cash for Clunkers" program would help the
environment, it actually caused net harm to the environment. Because the
program required cars to be shredded instead of recycled, it wasted 24
million barrels of oil. Many of the cars that were destroyed were in
perfectly good condition. Because the program's minimum requirement for
so-called "fuel efficiency" was only 22 mpg, the reduction in pollution
was negligible.

102) Violated the very same campaign finance laws that he claims to
support

In January 2013, it was reported that Obama's campaign had been fined
$375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating campaign finance
laws.

103) Lied about how he had answered a questionnaire on gun control

In 1996, when Obama was answering a questionnaire on his political views,
one of the questions was "Do you support state legislation to: ban the
manufacture, sale and possession of handguns?"

Obama's answer to the question was "Yes."

However, in 2008, Obama said "My writing wasn't on that particular
questionnaire."

However, ABC News later reported that the questionnaire "appears to have
Obama's handwriting."

104) Falsely claimed that his 2013 inauguration was not funded by
lobbyists

Although Obama claimed that his 2013 inauguration was not funded by
lobbyists, its sponsors had actually spent $160 million on lobbying during
Obama's first presidential term.

105) Encouraged medical device manufacturers to lay off employees

In November 2012, it was reported that in response to the medical device
tax that is part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers had
announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned
layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned
layoffs).

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other
Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry
Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the
tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare's medical device tax had
destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from
being created.

106) Encouraged employers to switch their employees from full time to part
time

The New York Times reported that Obamacare

"sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment."

In response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, some restaurants have
announced plans to switch some of their employees from full time to part
time, including some franchises of Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Wendy's,
Taco Bell, White Castle, and Fatburger.

Community College of Allegheny County switched 200 professors and 200
other employees from full time to part time in response to Obamacare.
Clint Benjamin, an English professor at Community College of Allegheny
County, said that this would reduce his own monthly pay by $600.

Also in response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, other colleges have
announced plans to switch some of their employees from full time to part
time, including Florida's Palm Beach State College, Ohio's Youngstown
State University, and New Jersey's Kean University.

In Virginia, thousands of government employees had their hours reduced
because of Obamacare.

The Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh reduced the hours of 48 of its employees
in response to Obamacare.

Regal Entertainment Group, the largest chain of movie theaters in the
country, announced that it would be switching thousands of its employees
from full time to part time in response to the Obamacare mandate.

Utah's Granite School District reduced the hours of 1,200 of its employees
in response to Obamacare.

In response to Obamacare, many Wal-Mart stores have stopped hiring full
time workers.

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter
to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will

"destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of
the American middle class... the law creates an incentive for employers
to keep employees' work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers
have begun to cut workers' hours to avoid this obligation."

In response to Obamacare, Forever 21 reduced its employees' hours.

As of September 2013, more than 200 public-sector employers had reduced
their employees' hours in response to Obamacare.

Sea World reduced the weekly hours of its part time employees from 32 to
28 in response to Obamacare.

Lands' End limited its part time employees to 29 hours per week in
response to Obamacare.

As of September 2013, at least 34 universities and colleges had reduced
some of their employees' hours in response to Obamacare.

On October 23, 2013, Investor's Business Daily wrote:

IBD has a running list that now includes 351 employers that have opted to
cut work hours below 30 per week or take related steps to limit liability
under ObamaCare's employer mandate. Each entry is documented with links to
news sources and public records.

About 275 entries on IBD's list come from the public sector, including
more than 100 school districts.

107) Broke his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first
term

On February 23, 2009, Obama said "Today, I'm pledging to cut the deficit
we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office." Obama broke
that promise.

108) Had Freedom of Information Act record worse than Bush's

In September 2012, it was reported that when it came to honoring requests
under the Freedom of Information Act, Obama's record was worse than that
of George W. Bush.

109) Supports installation of hidden cameras on private property without a
search warrant

In October 2012, Obama's Justice Department argued in favor of installing
hidden cameras on private property without a search warrant.

110) Used "stimulus" money to pay people to play cards, board games, and
video games

In October 2012, it was reported that LG Chem, a lithium-ion battery plant
in Holland, Michigan, was using money from Obama's "stimulus" to pay its
employees to play cards, board games, and video games.

111) Spent half a million tax dollars on "Prom Week" video game

In 2012, the Obama administration spent $516,000 on a video game called
"Prom Week."

112) Hypocritically paid his female employees less than his male employees

Although Obama claimed to support equal pay for men and women, his own
administration paid its female employees 18% less than its male employees.

113) Falsely said that Romney's pension was bigger than his own

During a debate in October 2012, Obama falsely stated that Mitt Romney's
pension was bigger than his own.

114) Has a double standard for investing in China and the Cayman Islands

Although Obama criticized Mitt Romney for having investments in China and
the Cayman Islands, Obama himself has investments in both of those
places.

115) Spent $27 million on "ineffective" pottery classes in Morocco

Obama spent $27 million on pottery classes in Morocco. The class used an
American teacher, but the translater who was hired did not actually know
how to speak English fluently, and made many mistakes. The instructor
often did not bring the right materials to class. The dyes and clays that
the instructor did use were not available in Morocco, which prevented the
students from being able to copy what they had learned. It was concluded
that the classes were "ineffective."

116) Caused large amounts of perfectly good food to be thrown into the
garbage

In one year, Obama's new school lunch program caused the schools in Lake
County, Florida, to throw away $75,000 of perfectly good fruits and
vegetables.

117) Accepted illegal campaign contributions from foreign citizens

During an experiment, a non-U.S. citizen attempted to make two $5
donations to both Obama's campaign website and Mitt Romney's campaign
website. While the Romney website rejected both donations, the Obama
website accepted them.

118) Labels opponents of TSA sexual harassment as "domestic extremists"

The Obama administration labels anyone who objects to the TSA's sexual
harassment as a "domestic extremist."

119) Lied about the Benghazi attack

In September 2012, after four U.S. citizens were killed in a terrorist
attack in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama administration falsely said that the
attack was a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video at YouTube.

CBS News reported that although it was obviously a terrorist attack, it
took an entire week before the Obama administration was willing to
acknowledge it as such.

The Washington Post reported that Obama had falsely said that he had
called it a terrorist attack from the very start.

After the attack began, someone (there is a debate over who this someone
was) ordered the nearby U.S. military to "stand down,", i.e., not offer
any assistance. Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military.
Obama later falsely claimed that the "stand down" order had not been made.

Although the Obama administration made a dozen revisions to its talking
points on this incident, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney falsely
stated that only a "single adjustment" had been made, and that it simply
involved changing the wording of "consulate" to "diplomatic facility." ABC
News published a complete list of all the changes to the talking points,
which can be read here.

Among the changes was the deletion of this entire paragraph:

"The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists
linked to al-Qa'ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. These noted that,
since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign
interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June
attack against the British Ambassador's convoy. We cannot rule out the
individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also
contributing to the efficacy of the attacks."

Victoria Nuland, a State Department spokeswoman, played a key role in the
editing of the talking points. But instead of firing her for this, Obama
offered her a promotion.

The Obama administration asked Fox News to stop reporting on Benghazi.

120) Paid a train carrying biofuel to cross the U.S.-Canadian border 24
times without unloading

As part of Obama's "green energy" program, Obama used tax money to pay for
a train full of biofuel to cross the U.S.-Canadian border 24 times without
unloading its cargo.

121) Falsely said that "we got back every dime" of the bailout

In October 2012, Obama said that "we got back every dime" of the bailout.
However, at the same time, the Congressional Budget Office that said there
was still $24 billion that had not been paid back.

122) Spent $50,000 of taxpayer money on a George S. Patton impersonator

In the summer of 2011, the Obama administration spent $50,000 on a George
S. Patton impersonator

123) Spent $75,000 of taxpayer money on a bicycle

The Obama administration spent $75,000 of taxpayer money on a bicycle.

124) Complained to YouTube about an anti-Muslim video

In September 2012, the Obama administration phoned YouTube to complain
about an anti-Muslim video.

Ben Wizner of the ACLU said that of this, "It does make us nervous when
the government throws its weight behind any requests for censorship."

Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said of this, "I am
actually kind of distressed by this... Even though there are all these
great quotes from inside the White House saying they support free
speech... .by calling YouTube from the White House, they were sending a
message no matter how much they say we don't want them to take it down,
when the White House calls and asks you to review it, it sends a message
and has a certain chilling effect."

125) Falsely said that Fast and Furious was started when Bush was
President

In September 2012, Obama said that Fast and Furious had "begun under the
previous administration." In reality, Fast and Furious began in October
2009.

126) Is a "war criminal" who is "more aggressive, more illegal
worldwide" than Bush, according to Ralph Nader

In September 2012, Ralph Nader said that Obama was a "war criminal" who
was "more aggressive, more illegal worldwide" than George W. Bush.

127) Illegally refused to fire Kathleen Sebelius after she violated
campaign finance laws

In February 2012, Kathleen Sebelius, Obama's Secretary of Health and Human
Services, violated campaign finance laws. Although federal law required
Obama to fire Sebelius for her illegal activity, he refused to do so.

128) Supports policies that hurt small businesses

In September 2012, a survery of small business owners showed that 69% of
them said that Obama's regulatory policies have hurt small businesses. 55%
said that they would not start a business under the current environment.

129) Spent $102,000 per year of taxpayer money on a "dog handler"

In September 2012, it was reported that Obama spent $102,000 of taxpayer
money each year on a "dog handler."

130) Refused to fire federal employee who sent email to 17,000 people
praising terrorist who wanted to destroy U.S.

In 2012, an employee of Obama's administration sent an email to more than
17,000 federal employees which praised Che Guevara, a terrorist who had
wanted to destroy the U.S. Obama refused to fire the employee.

131) Called Fort Hood shooting "workplace violence" instead of "Islamic
terrorism"

After Nidal Malik Hasan shouted "Allahu Akbar!" and murdered 13 people on
U.S. soil, instead of referring to it as "Islamic terrorism," Obama said
that it was "workplace violence."

132) Falsely said that switching to electronic medical records would make
health care cheaper

Although Obama claimed that switching to electronic record keeping as part
of Obamacare would make health care cheaper, it actually made it more
expensive.

133) Spent $495,000 of "stimulus" money for ads on MSNBC

Obama spent $495,000 of "stimulus" money for commercials on MSNBC.

134) Lied about the cost of federal regulations

In September 2012, it was reported that the cost of federal regulations to
citizens and business owners was more than 20 times as much as what Obama
had said it was.

135) Broke his promise to pass immigration bill, and then lied about why
he broke it

In 2008, Obama promised that he would pass an immigration bill during his
first year in office. He broke that promise. He then blamed this on
Republicans, even though both the House and Senate were controlled by
Democrats during Obama's first year.

136) Made it much harder for start ups to raise capital and create jobs

In July 2010, Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Act. The Wall St. Journal wrote
of this:

"Senator Chris Dodd's 1,400-page financial reform bill contains many
economic land mines, and here's one of the worst: Provisions that would
make it harder for business start-ups to raise seed capital."

"Currently, wealthy individuals who want to invest directly in a new
business can do so with minimum interference from regulators. The law
requires only that the investor be "accredited" by meeting thresholds for
net worth ($1 million) or income ($250,000). Entrepreneurs depend on these
"angel" investors, since many new businesses lack the collateral for bank
loans and are too small to interest venture capitalists. "

"Amazon, Yahoo, Google and Facebook all benefited from angel investors,
who typically target companies under five years old. According to a 2009
Kaufman Foundation study, such firms are less than 1% of all companies yet
generate about 10% of new jobs. Between 1980 and 2005, companies less than
five years old accounted for all net job growth in the U.S. In 2008,
angels invested some $19 billion in more than 55,000 companies. "

"Mr. Dodd's bill would change all this for the worse. Most preposterously,
it would require that start-ups seeking angel investments file with the
Securities and Exchange Commission and endure a 120-day review. Rare is
the new company that doesn't need immediate access to the capital it
raises, and a four-month delay is the kind of rule popular in banana
republics that create few new businesses. "

"The Dodd bill also raises the net worth and income thresholds to $2.3
million and $450,000, respectively. The Angel Capital Association, a trade
group, estimates that these provisions would disqualify about 77% of
current accredited investors."

137) Paid six figure salaries to federal employees so they could watch
pornography all day long

In April 2010, ABC News reported:

"On a day when President Obama argued for more government regulation over
the financial industry, a new government report reveals that some high-
level regulators have spent more time looking at porn than policing Wall
Street. "

"The Securities and Exchange Commission is supposed to be the sheriff of
the financial industry, looking for financial crimes like Bernard Madoff's
Ponzi scheme. But the new report, obtained by ABC News, says senior
employees of the SEC spent hours on the commission's computers looking at
sites like naughty.com, skankwire, youporn, and others. "

"The investigation, which was conducted by the SEC's internal watchdog at
the request of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, found 31 serious offenders
over the past two and a half years. Seventeen of the offenders were senior
SEC officers with salaries ranging from $100,000 to $222,000 per year. "

"Eight Hours a Day Spent on Porn Sites"

"One senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington spent up to eight
hours a day accessing Internet porn. When he filled all the space on his
government computer with pornographic images, he downloaded more to CDs
and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices. "

"An SEC accountant attempted to access porn websites 1,800 times in a two-
week period and had 600 pornographic images on her computer hard drive."

"Another SEC accountant attempted to access porn sites 16,000 times in a
single month."

In May 2014, Bloomberg News reported:

An employee at the Environmental Protection Agency downloaded more than
7,000 pornographic files onto a government computer and viewed them for
two to six hours a day, according to the agency's independent watchdog.

The employee caught viewing pornography is still on the payroll, earning
about $120,000 a year.

138) Spent tax dollars on a "mindreader"

Obama used taxpayer money to hire a "mindreader."

139) Used tax dollars to build a million dollar bus stop

Obama spent federal tax dollars to pay for part of the cost of a million
dollar bus stop which opened in Arlington, Virginia in March 2013. Despite
its huge cost, the bus stop can only accommodate 15 people, and does not
even protect them from the wind and rain.

140) Filed a lawsuit against a non-existent "monopoly" in the beer
industry

Although the number of breweries in the U.S. increased from 89 to 2,336
between 1978 and 2013, the Obama administration sued Anheuser-Busch InBev,
which already owned half of Mexico's Grupo Modelo, to prevent if from
buying the other half, despite the fact that there were no laws on the
books against such a purchase. The Obama administration's so-called
justification for this lawsuit against a law abiding company was that the
company might, possibly, maybe, break some unspecified law, at some
unspecified, distant point in the future.

141) Falsely said the sequester would cause janitors to take a pay cut

In February 2013, while talking about the sequester, Obama said

"The folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol - now that Congress
has left, somebody is going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and
throwing out the garbage - they're going to have less pay... The
janitors, the security guards, they just got a pay cut, and they've got to
figure out how to manage that. That's real."

CBS News reported that Obama's statement was false.

142) Falsely said that he goes skeet shooting "all the time"

At the beginning of Obama's second term, he said that he goes skeet
shooting "all the time." However, a witness said that when he saw Obama go
skeet shooting, Obama acted as if he had never fired a gun before, that he
appeared to be uncomfortable with a gun, and that he only stayed for five
minutes. In addition, during his first term, the media had never reported
on his alleged skeet shooting, although it never failed to cover the more
than 100 rounds of golf that he played during his first term.

143) Gave special access to people who raised or donated $500,000

In February 2013, the New York Times reported that people who raised or
donated at least $500,000 to Organizing for Action, a political group that
supported Obama, would be given "the privilege of attending quarterly
meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White
House."

144) Said the deficit had gone down when it had actually gone up

In February 2013, Obama said that the federal deficit had gone down by
$2.5 trillion since he had taken office. In reality, it had actually
increased by $5.9 trillion during that time.

145) Refused to make available necessary tax forms to taxpayers

On February 21, 2013, CBS News reported that the Obama administration had
not yet made available dozens of different tax forms that taxpayers would
need in order to meet the legal deadline of April 15 for filing their
taxes.

146) Nominated someone to be Secretary of the Treasury who had
participated in "the biggest tax scam on record"

Obama nominated Jack Lew to be Secretary of the Treasury. Lew had
previously invested in the Cayman Islands, which Obama had referred to as
"the biggest tax scam on record."

147) Adopted harmful new restrictions on prescription painkillers - even
though the House had already voted against them

After the U.S. House voted against new restrictions on prescription
painkillers, the Obama administration ignored the House's vote, and
adopted the new restrictions anyway. Dr. Lynn Webster, president-elect of
the American Academy of Pain Medicine said of these new restrictions, "It
will have an impact on a lot of patients who have been receiving them for
some time for legitimate purposes."

148) Rolled back union transparency rules

The Obama administration rolled back union transparency rules, which had
been created so that union members could find out how their union was
spending their union dues.

149) Tried to eliminate workers' right to a secret ballot when voting on
whether or not to unionize

Obama supported the elimination of workers' right to a secret ballot when
voting on whether or not to form a union

150) Gave "supervised release" to a convicted criminal who later went on
to murder a nun

Obama gave "supervised release" to a convicted criminal, who then went on
to murder a nun.

151) Falsely said that he did not propose the sequester

On October 22, 2012, Obama said, "The sequester is not something that I've
proposed." However, on February 22, 2013, the Washington Post reported
that "the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House" and
that "Obama personally approved of the plan."

152) Illegally refused to submit a budget on time during four of his first
five years

The President is legally required to submit a budget by the first Monday
in February. Obama broke this law during four of his first five years in
office. Since 1921, no President had missed this deadline more than once.

153) Canceled White House tours for thousands of people so he could use
the money to play golf with Tiger Woods

During the sequester in early 2013, the Obama administration said it would
save $18,000 per week by cancelling all White house tours, despite the
fact that thousands of people had planned their vacations far in advance.
However, Obama had no problem with spending more than $1 million in tax
money so he could go golfing with Tiger Woods for one weekend.

154) Falsely said the Newton shooter used a "fully automatic weapon"

In April 2013, four months after Adam Lanza murdered 26 people at Sandy
Hook Elementary School, Obama falsely stated that the shooter had used a
"fully automatic weapon."

155) Broke his own deadline for creating healthcare exchanges

Three years after Obama signed Obamacare, the New York Times reported that
Obama would miss his own deadline for creating some of the insurance
exchanges for small businesses.

156) Falsely said that surgeons get paid between $30,000 and $50,000 for
amputating a leg

In August 2009, while trying to justify the passage of Obamacare, Obama
stated

"Let's take the example of something like diabetes, one of - a disease
that's skyrocketing, partly because of obesity, partly because it's not
treated as effectively as it could be. Right now if we paid a family - if
a family care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose
weight, modify diet, monitors whether they're taking their medications in
a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance. But if that same
diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000,
$50,000 - immediately the surgeon is reimbursed. Well, why not make sure
that we're also reimbursing the care that prevents the amputation, right?
That will save us money."

The American College of Surgeons responded to this by saying

"President Obama got his facts completely wrong. He stated that a surgeon
gets paid $50,000 for a leg amputation when, in fact, Medicare pays a
surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation. This payment also
includes the evaluation of the patient on the day of the operation plus
patient follow-up care that is provided for 90 days after the operation.
Private insurers pay some variation of the Medicare reimbursement for this
service."

157) Falsely said that doctors perform unnecessary tonsillectomies to make
more money
In July 2009, Obama said

"Right now, doctors, a lot of times, are forced to make decisions based on
the fee payment schedule that's out there. So if ... your child has a bad
sore throat, or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the
reimbursement system and say to himself, 'You know what? I make a lot more
money if I take this kid's tonsils out.'"

"Now, that may be the right thing to do. But I'd rather have that doctor
making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid's
tonsils out or whether it might make more sense just to change - maybe
they have allergies. Maybe they have something else that would make a
difference."

The American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery responded
by saying

"The AAO-HNS is disappointed by the President's portrayal of the decision
making processes by the physicians who perform these surgeries. In many
cases, tonsillectomy may be a more effective treatment, and less costly,
than prolonged or repeated treatments for an infected throat."

158) Purchased 2,717 mine resistant armor protected vehicles for use on
civilian streets in the U.S.

In March 2013 it was reported that the Obama administration had purchased
2,717 mine resistant armor protected vehicles for use on civilian streets
in the U.S.

In March 2013, it was reported that Obama was spending $277,050 of tax
money per year for three professional calligraphists. It was also reported

a tiny fraction of that cost.

160) Allowed 311,566 federal employees and retirees to get away with $3.5
billion in unpaid federal taxes

customers had used UPS to ship illegal drugs.

163) Added 20,000 extra pages to Obamacare without Congressional approval

After Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra pages to it, even
though those extra 20,000 pages had not been voted on by Congress.

164 ) Signed health care reform law whose own authors called it a "huge
train wreck" that was "beyond comprehension"

U.S. Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana), one of the authors of Obamacare, said
of it, "I just see a huge train wreck coming down."

U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia), another author of the law,
said it was "beyond comprehension."

165) Eliminated disclosure requirements for most federal employees in the
executive and legislative branches

In April 2013, Obama eliminated the disclosure requirements for most
federal employees in the executive and legislative branches.

166) Waited until after the 2012 election to release unpopular Obamacare
rules

In April 2013, the New York Times reported:

... even fervent supporters of the law admit that things are going worse
than expected.

... the Obama administration didn't want to release unpopular rules
before the election.

Everything is turning out to be more complicated than originally
envisioned.

A law that was very confusing has become mind-boggling... Americans are
just going to be overwhelmed and befuddled. Many are just going to stay
away, even if they are eligible for benefits.

167) Made it easy for people to fraudulently collect $50,000 by falsely
claiming to be "farmers"

In April 2013, the New York Times reported

the Obama administration's political appointees at the Justice and
Agriculture Departments engineered a stunning turnabout: they committed
$1.33 billion to compensate...

The deal... was fashioned in White House meetings... the $50,000 payouts
to black farmers had proved a magnet for fraud.

the claims process prompted allegations of widespread fraud and criticism
that its very design encouraged people to lie... Agriculture Department
reviewers found reams of suspicious claims, from nursery-school-age
children and pockets of urban dwellers, sometimes in the same handwriting
with nearly identical accounts of discrimination.

As a senator, Barack Obama supported expanding compensation for black
farmers, and then as president he pressed for $1.15 billion to pay those
new claims.

In 16 ZIP codes in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and North Carolina, the
number of successful claimants exceeded the total number of farms operated
by people of any race in 1997, the year the lawsuit was filed. Those
applicants received nearly $100 million.

In Maple Hill, a struggling town in southeastern North Carolina, the
number of people paid was nearly four times the total number of farms.
More than one in nine African-American adults there received checks. In
Little Rock, Ark., a confidential list of payments shows, 10 members of
one extended family collected a total of $500,000, and dozens of other
successful claimants shared addresses, phone numbers or close family
connections.

In Arkansas, prosecutors rejected a test case against a Pine Bluff police
officer who had admitted lying on his claim form.

in one ZIP code in Columbus, Ohio, nearly everyone in two adjoining
apartment buildings had filed, according to the former high-ranking agency
official.

She cinched the claim, he said to a ripple of laughter, by asserting that
her father had whispered on his deathbed, "I was discriminated against by
U.S.D.A."

168) Tried to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was trying to
rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space in a manner that would favor
Sprint and T-Mobile, and make it harder for AT&T and Verizon.

169) Put someone in jail for making an anti-Muslim video

In May 2013, Politico reported:

"Nakoula Basseley Nakoula deserves a place in American history. He is the
first person in this country jailed for violating Islamic anti-blasphemy
laws."

"You won't find that anywhere in the charges against him, of course. As a
practical matter, though, everyone knows that Nakoula wouldn't be in jail
today if he hadn't produced a video crudely lampooning the prophet
Muhammad."

"In the weeks after the attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed
Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, the Obama administration
claimed the terrorist assault had been the outgrowth of a demonstration
against the Nakoula video. The administration ran public service
announcements in Pakistan featuring President Barack Obama saying the U.S.
had nothing to do with it. In a speech at the United Nations around this
time, the president declared - no doubt with Nakoula in mind - 'The future
must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.'"

"After Benghazi, the administration was evidently filled with a fierce
resolve - to bring Nakoula Basseley Nakoula to justice. Charles Woods, the
father of a Navy SEAL killed in Benghazi, said Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton told him when his son's body returned to Andrews Air Force Base:
'We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and
prosecuted.'"

"Lo and behold, Nakoula was brought in for questioning by five Los Angeles
County sheriff's deputies at midnight, eventually arrested and held
without bond, and finally thrown into jail for a year. He sits in La Tuna
Federal Correctional Institution in Texas right now, even as the deceptive
spin that blamed his video for the Benghazi attack looks more egregious by
the day."

170) Oversaw IRS whose employees illegally targeted conservative groups

In May 2013, the Washington Post reported that the IRS had illegally
targeted conservative groups for additional reviews. Organizations with
the words "tea party" or "patriot" were singled out for harassment, such
as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their
internet postings on social networking websites, and information about
their family members.

When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who
heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities,
claimed that only low level employees had known about it, and that no high
level IRS officials had known about it. However, soon afterward, NPR
reported that an Inspector General report showed that Lerner had been
lying, and that she herself had actually been aware of it since June 29,
2011. Even worse, during March and April of 2012, Lerner herself had
actually written such letters to fifteen different conservative groups.
One of these letters can be read here.

While testifying in May 2013, Lerner said, "I have not done anything
wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or
regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any
other congressional committee." However, afterward, she invoked her fifth
amendment right to remain silent. The Washington Post reported that there
was disagreement as to whether or not Lerner's statement constituted a
waiving of her fifth amendment right to remain silent. Soon afterward, she
was placed on paid administrative leave. At a later hearing in March 2014,
Lerner again invoked her fifth amendment right to remain silent.

In September 2013, a House committee released several of Lerner's emails,
which showed that she had targeted tea party groups, and that she had
asked that their applications be delayed. In one of the emails from 2011,
she had written "Tea Party Matter very dangerous."

In September 2013, after having been on paid leave for four months, Lerner
had still not been fired by Obama.

In October 2013, it was reported that newly discovered emails proved that
Lerner had violated federal law by giving the Federal Election Commission
confidential tax information of several Tea party groups.

The Washington Post reported that IRS officials at the IRS headquarters in
Washington D.C. had sent such letters to conservatives groups. Reuters
reported that higher level IRS officials had taken part in discussions
about it as early as August 2011. However, 21 months later, on May 10,
2013, the Washington Post reported that President Obama had not done
anything to investigate or fire the IRS employees who had engaged in this
illegal harassment. As of May 14, 2013, none of the IRS employees who
engaged in any of this illegal behavior had been disciplined, despite the
fact that higher level IRS officials had known about their illegal
behavior at least since August 2011. Despite all of these media reports
about the involvement of high level IRS officials, in February 2014, Obama
said that these things had come from "a local office."

On May 15, 2013, it was reported that Steven Miller, the acting IRS
commissioner, had resigned. However, it was also reported that his
assignment would have ended in early June anyway. He resigned - Obama did
not fire him.

The IRS gave out confidential information about conservative groups.
ProPublica wrote:

"The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups
applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election released
nine pending confidential applications of conservative groups to
ProPublica late last year."

"In response to a request for the applications for 67 different nonprofits
last November, the Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica
applications or documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications
had not yet been approved-meaning they were not supposed to be made
public."

"No unapproved applications from liberal groups were sent to ProPublica."

President Obama either lied about when he first knew about this - or was
too busy playing golf and attending fundraisers to read the memos that
were sent to him. The Daily Caller wrote:

"White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a press conference Tuesday
that the White House was notified about the IRS targeting tea party groups
'several weeks ago.' This comes a day after President Obama said he found
out about it from news reports on Friday of last week."

"During a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron on
Monday, President Obama was asked about the IRS scandal. He responded, 'I
first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people
learned about this. I think it was on Friday.' "

"However, Carney said Tuesday that first a report had to be compiled by
the IRS's inspector general and then when it was completed, it was passed
on to the administration."

"'A notification is appropriate and routine and that is what happened and
that happened several weeks ago,' Carney said."

When Media Trackers, a conservative organization, applied to the IRS for
non-profit status, after waiting 16 months, it got no response. But when
it reapplied with a liberal sounding name, it got approval in just three
weeks. Yahoo wrote:

"In May 2011, Drew Ryun, a conservative activist and former Republican
National Committee staffer, began filling out the Internal Revenue Service
application to achieve nonprofit status for a new conservative watchdog
group."

"When September 2012 arrived with still no word from the IRS, Ryun
determined that Media Trackers would likely never obtain standalone
nonprofit status, and he tried a new approach: He applied for permanent
nonprofit status for a separate group called Greenhouse Solutions, a pre-
existing organization that was reaching the end of its determination
period."

"The IRS approved Greenhouse Solutions' request for permanent nonprofit
status in three weeks."

Politico reported:

"The same Internal Revenue Service office that singled out Tea Party
groups for extra scrutiny also challenged Israel-related organizations, at
least one of which filed suit over the agency's handling of its
application for tax-exempt status."

"The trouble for the Israel-focused groups seems to have had different
origins than that experienced by conservative groups, but at times the
effort seems to have been equally ham-handed."

The IRS asked conservative groups what books they were reading.

Although the IRS went 18 months or longer without responding to
conservative organizations' applications, the IRS demanded that these same
organizations answer the IRS's intrusive questions within a few weeks.

After the Waco Tea Party sent an application to the IRS, the IRS waited 19
months to respond. In its response, the IRS asked for printouts of its web
page and social networking sites, copies of all of its newsletters,
bulletins and fliers, and copies of all stories written about it. The IRS
also asked for transcripts of its radio interviews.

As one example of how the IRS treated conservative organizations
differently from liberal ones, Politico reported:

"Chris Littleton, one of the co-founders of the Ohio Liberty Coalition,
said the group got a grilling from the IRS when it submitted its
application, in letters the group has posted on its website. The IRS also
gave him so much grief when he tried to apply for tax-exempt status for
another group, American Junto, that 'we just gave up on it,' he said."

"But when he submitted an application for a third group - Ohioans for
Health Care Freedom, now renamed Ohio Rising - 'it went through just
fine,' Littleton said. 'They never asked a single set of questions.'"

After the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots sent in their application,
it took two years for the IRS to respond. The IRS response included 35
questions. When the group's cofounder called the IRS, the IRS agent
claimed that he had their group's file right in front of him. But when the
group's confounder asked the IRS agent a question, the IRS agent asked,
"What's your group's name again?"

Tea Party groups who spoke with each other said they were all getting the
same questions from the IRS.

The Washington Post reported that some IRS employees were "ignorant about
tax laws, defiant of their supervisors, and blind to the appearance of
impropriety."

In 2012, the IRS leaked confidential information about Mitt Romney to the
co-chairman of President Obama's re-election committee.

For a 27 month period that began in February 2010, the IRS gave exactly
zero approvals to Tea Party organizations that had sent in applications.
During that same time period, numerous liberal organizations with names
including words such as "progress" or "progressive" did get approval.

After True the Vote, a conservative organization which was founded by
Catherine Engelbrecht, sent its application to the IRS, the IRS went three
years without responding. During that three year period, Engelbrecht and
her family's small manufacturing business were audited by the IRS, and
were investigated by OSHA, the ATF, and the FBI.

Democratic U.S. Senators pressured the IRS to target conservative groups.
In May 2013, U.S. News & World Report wrote:

"Over the last three years, Democratic senators repeatedly and publicly
pressured the IRS to engage in the very activities that they are only now
condemning today. At the same time, Republicans repeatedly and publicly
warned against this abuse of government power and pointed to a series of
red flags that strongly suggested conservative political organizations
were being targeted by the IRS. Those warnings were deliberately ignored
by the Obama administration and Democratic leaders in Congress."

"From Max Baucus to Chuck Schumer to Jeanne Shaheen, key Senate Democrats
publicly pressured the IRS to target groups that held differing political
views and who, in their view, had the temerity to engage in the political
process. The IRS listened to them and acted."

In order to get approval, the IRS required members of Coalition for Life
of Iowa, a pro-life organization, to sign a promise to avoid protesting in
front of Planned Parenthood.

The IRS asked Christian Voices for Life, a pro-life organization,
questions about its prayer vigils.

According to the official White House visitor's log, during Obama's first
four years as President, IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits
to the White House. This is more visits to the White House - by a very
large margin - than any other cabinet member during Obama's first term. By
comparison, during the four years that Mark Everson was IRS commissioner
when Bush was president, Everson made only one visit to the White House.

Shulman donated $500 to the Democratic National Committee in October 2004.

During Congressional testimony that had taken place in March 2012, Shulman
falsely said that the IRS had not targeted conservative groups.

Shulman's wife, Susan L. Anderson, is the senior program advisor for
Public Campaign, a liberal organization. The Dailer Caller wrote of this
group:

Public Campaign receives "major funding" from the pro-Obamacare alliance
Health Care for America NOW!, which is comprised of the labor unions AFL-
CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and the progressive activist organization Move On,
among others.

Public Campaign also receives funding from the liberal Ford Foundation,
the Common Cause Education Fund, and Barbra Streisand's The Streisand
Foundation, among other foundations and private donors.

Stephen Seok was one of the IRS agents who wrote threatening letters to
conservative groups. After doing so, he was given a promotion.

In June 2013, it was reported that two IRS employees had violated
government ethics rules at a 2010 conference when they received $1,100 in
free food and other items. One of them was Fred Schindler, the director of
implementation oversight at the IRS Affordable Care Act office. The other
was Donald Toda, a California-based employee. Obama did not fire them.
Instead, he gave both of them paid leave. By comparison, in 1981,
President Reagan fired 11,359 air-traffic controllers who had been
illegally striking.

In June 2013, it was reported that The National Organization for Marriage,
a conservative organization, had forensic evidence which proved that its
donors' private information had been illegally leaked by the IRS. The IRS
employees who illegally leaked this private information could get five
years in prison. However, Obama refused to file any charges against these
IRS criminals.

The IRS illegally leaked the private information of Christine O'Donnell
the same day that she announced that she would run for U.S. Senate as a
tea party candidate.

According to White House visitor logs, Obama met with Colleen Kelley, the
president of the National Treasury Employees Union, on March 31, 2010. The
very next day, IRS employees who belonged to that union union started to
target tea party organizations.

In June 2013, Associated Press claimed that the IRS had targeted liberal
groups, but refused to actually name any of those liberal groups.

In July 2013, it was reported that Obama had met with a key IRS official
who was involved in the targeting just two days before the key official
had told his colleagues how to target tea party groups. The Daily Caller
reported:

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS
targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days
before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize
tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight
testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in
the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the
Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins' boss, then-
IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office
Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins' office sent the exempt organizations
determinations unit "additional comments on the draft guidance" for
approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the
IRS inspector general's report.

Jon Stewart said of this:

"Well, congratulations, President Barack Obama. Conspiracy theorists who
generally can survive in anaerobic environments have just had an algae
bloom dropped on their f***ing heads, thus removing the last arrow in your
pro-governance quiver: skepticism about your opponents."

Michael Macleod-Ball, chief of staff at the ACLU's Washington Legislative
Office, said of this:

"Even the appearance of playing partisan politics with the tax code is
about as constitutionally troubling as it gets. With the recent push to
grant federal agencies broad new powers to mandate donor disclosure for
advocacy groups on both the left and the right, there must be clear checks
in place to prevent this from ever happening again."

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had chosen
Barbara Kay Bosserman to head the investigation of the IRS's targeting of
tea party groups. Bosserman had donated more than $6,000 to Obama's two
presidential campaigns.

In January 2014, it was reported that since Sarah Palin had announced her
candidacy for vice-President in 2008, the IRS had harassed her father six
different times. Prior to that, the IRS had never contacted him during the
50 years that he had worked. The report did not specify how many of these
six incidents happened under President Bush, or how many happened under
President Obama.

In January 2014, it was reported that during the FBI's so-called
"investigation" of the IRS's harassment of tea party groups, the FBI had
not actually interviewed any tea party groups.

In January 2014, it was reported that the IRS had demanded that Friends of
Abe (a conservative organization whose members work in the entertainment
industry) give the IRS enhanced access to its security protected website
(which included its secret membership list), even though such a demand was
not standard IRS procedure. In addition, even though the organization had
applied to the IRS for tax free status two years earlier, the IRS had
still not made a decision regarding the application.

In February 2014, Obama said that there was "not even a smidgeon of
corruption" in the IRS's actions.

In February 2014, it was reported that during Obama's presidency, 100% of
the established 501(c)(4) groups that had been audited by the IRS were
conservative.

In February 2014, when Fox News's Bill O'Reilly asked Obama about the IRS
harassment of tea party groups, Obama said "These kinds of things keep on
surfacing, in part because you and your TV station will promote them."

In May 2014, it was reported that tea party donors had been audited by the
IRS at ten times the rate of the general population.

In May 2014, it was reported that the IRS had illegally ignored four
Freedom of Information requests from Judicial Watch between May 2013 and
October 2013. Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in October 2013, and was
finally able to get the information in May 2014. It showed that the orders
for the IRS to harass tea party members had come from IRS headquarters in
Washington D.C. It also showed that U.S. Senator Carl Levin (D-Michigan)
had pressured the IRS to shut down tea party organizations.

In June 2014, the IRS claimed that Lerner's emails to outside agencies
from January 2009 through April 2011 had been "lost" when her hard drive
"crashed." Also in June 2014, the IRS claimed to have "lost" the emails
from six additional IRS employees who were relevant to this scandal when
their hard drives "crashed." One of these IRS employees was Nikole Flax,
who had been chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller. Flax
had made 31 visits to the White House during the time that the IRS had
been targeting tea party groups. However, a private company called
Sonasoft had a contract with the IRS since 2005 to back up all of the
IRS's emails. The company keeps multiple and redundant backup copies of
all the IRS's emails. The company advertised itself by saying "If the IRS
uses Sonasoft products to back up their servers why wouldn't you choose
them to protect your servers?" In addition, Norman Cillo, an Army veteran
who had worked in intelligence, and who had also worked as a program
manager at Microsoft, listed six reasons why the IRS's claim about
"losing" the emails must be false. Also, federal law requires the IRS to
keep permanent, backup copies of all of its emails at an external
location. And finally, the NSA has copies of all of the emails.

Although federal law requires the IRS to keep permanent, backup copies of
all of its emails at an external location, in June 2014, it was reported
that the IRS has canceled its email archiving contract with Sonasoft weeks
after Lerner's computer "crashed."

In June 2014, it was reported that emails showed that Lerner had suggested
that the IRS audit U.S. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).

In June 2014, the IRS admitted that it had illegally given out information
about the conservative group National Organization for Marriage.

In July 2014, it was reported that Lerner had called Republicans
"crazies" and "assholes" in her emails.

In July 2014, it was reported that after Lerner's hard drive "crashed,"
the IRS deliberately destroyed it, without making any attempt to recover
her emails. Top IRS officials told Congressional investigators that the
hard drive was irreparably damaged before they destroyed it. However, IRS
technical experts who had examined the hard drive before the IRS destroyed
it said that this was not true, and that the data could have been
recovered. Bruce Webster, partner at Provo, Utah-based IT consulting and
expert witness firm Ironwood Experts, who has served as a consulting and
IT expert in more than 80 civil lawsuits, said of this:

"... the IRS has no excuses for having handled this so poorly... This
happens all the time... There are little storefront companies in just
about every major city that can do this and there are forensic companies
that can restore files and even do higher end recovery of data."

In August 2014, the IRS admitted in a court filing that it had
deliberately destroyed Lerner's Blackberry after her computer "crashed."
In addition, an IRS official admitted, under penalty of perjury, that
Lerner's Blackberry had contained the same emails that had been on her
computer.

In August 2014, the IRS finally admitted, under penalty of perjury, that
Lerner's emails had never really been "lost." The IRS said the "missing"
emails had been on its backup system all along.

On November 5, 2014, it was reported that the IRS had admitted to the
court that it had not even tried to find Lerner's "missing" emails in its
backup system.

On November 21, 2014, it was reported that the Treasury Inspector General
for Tax Administration had obtained as many as 30,000 of Lerner's
"missing" emails from IRS disaster recovery tapes.

171) Spent $402,721 on underwear that detects the presence of cigarette
smoke

In May 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$402,721 on underwear that detects the presence of cigarette smoke.

172) Rewarded one of his biggest campaign fundraisers by nominating him
for the ambassadorship to Canada

In April 2013, it was reported that Obama had nominated Bruce Heyman to be
the ambassador to Canada. During Obama's election campaign, Heyman had
raised more than $1 million for Obama.

173) Hired a retarded man to sell illegal drugs and guns, and then
arrested him for doing so

In April 2013, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

"ATF agents running an undercover storefront in Milwaukee used a brain-
damaged man with a low IQ to set up gun and drug deals, paying him in
cigarettes, merchandise and money, according to federal documents obtained
by the Journal Sentinel."

"For more than six months, federal agents relied on Chauncey Wright to
promote 'Fearless Distributing' by handing out fliers as he rode his bike
around town recommending the store to friends, family and strangers,
according to federal prosecutors and family members."

"Wright, unaware that the store was an undercover operation being run by
agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives,
also stocked shelves with shoes, clothing, drug paraphernalia and auto
parts, according to his family."

"Once authorities shut down the operation, they charged the 28-year-old
man with federal gun and drug counts."

"Wright's IQ measures in the 50s, about half of a normal IQ, according to
those familiar with him. Wright's score is classified as mildly or
moderately disabled, depending on the IQ scale used."

174) Secretly obtained phone records from Associated Press reporters and
editors

In May 2013, Associated Press reported:

The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records
of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news
cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented
intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.

The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for
the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP
office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main
number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery,
according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also
included incoming calls or the duration of calls.

In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate
telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of
2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that
period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where
phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government
and other matters.

In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP
President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government
sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be
justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the
phone records and destruction of all copies.

"There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection
of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters.
These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources
across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a
two-month period, provide a road map to AP's newsgathering operations, and
disclose information about AP's activities and operations that the
government has no conceivable right to know," Pruitt said.

Soon afterward, it was reported that obtaining these phone records had
required approval from Eric Holder, Obama's Attorney General.

This has had a very dangerous and harmful effect on the media's ability to
report the news. In June 2013, Gary Pruitt, the president and chief
executive of Associated Presssaid:

"Some longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about
talking with us... In some cases, government employees we once checked in
with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone. Others are reluctant
to meet in person ... This chilling effect on newsgathering is not just
limited to AP... Journalists from other news organizations have
personally told me that it has intimidated both official and nonofficial
sources from speaking to them as well."

175) Asked contractors to disclose their political donations before
bidding on government contracts

In April 2011, Obama asked contractors to disclose their political
donations before bidding on government contracts.

176) Tried to deport German family that had fled Germany over Hitler's ban
on homeschooling

In Germany in 1938, Adolf Hitler outlawed homeschooling. He said "Give me
a child when he's seven and he's mine forever."

Hitler's ban on homeschooling is still in effect today. In 2006, Katharina
Plett was arrested for homeschooling her own children. Her husband and
their children fled the country. In 2008, Juergen and Rosemary Dudek were
sentenced to 90 days in jail for homeschooling their own children.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their homeschooled children fled Germany
after the police showed up at their house to enforce Germany's ban on
homeschooling. They came to the United States in 2010 and were granted
political asylum, which gave them legal permission to live in the U.S. as
political refugees However, in March 2013, the Obama administration
argued in federal court in favor of deporting them and sending them back
to Germany. This means that Obama does not consider them to be political
refugees, and that he does not consider Germany's policy of jailing
homeschooling parents to be a form of persecution.

177) Said, "We're gonna punish our enemies, and we're gonna reward our
friends"

Obama said (the bolding is mine)

"If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish
our enemies, and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on
issues that are important to us' - if they don't see that kind of upsurge
in voting in this election - then I think it's going to be harder. And
that's why I think it's so important that people focus on voting on
November 2nd."

This is a rare instance of a promise that Obama has actually kept instead
of broken. A huge number of the things on this list can be explained by
that one simple sentence that Obama said.

178) Falsely accused a law abiding news reporter of being "an aider and
abettor and/or co-conspirator" in a criminal investigation

James Rosen is a law abiding reporter for Fox News. However, the Obama
administration falsely labeled him as "an aider and abettor and/or co-
conspirator" in a criminal investigation when it applied for a warrant to
read his emails.

The New York Times wrote of this:

With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible "co-
conspirator" in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama
administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to
threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.

Leak investigations usually focus on the source, not the reporter. But, in
this case, federal prosecutors also asked a federal judge for permission
to examine Mr. Rosen's personal e-mails, arguing that "there is probable
cause to believe" Mr. Rosen is "an aider and abettor and/or co-
conspirator" in the leak.

Though Mr. Rosen was not charged, the F.B.I. request for his e-mail
account was granted secretly in late May 2010. The government was allowed
to rummage through Mr. Rosen's e-mails for at least 30 days.

Michael Clemente, the executive vice president of Fox News, said on Monday
that it was "downright chilling" that Mr. Rosen "was named a criminal co-
conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter." Bruce Brown, the
executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press,
added on Tuesday that treating "routine news-gathering efforts as evidence
of criminality is extremely troubling and corrodes time-honored
understandings between the public and the government about the role of the
free press."

Obama administration officials often talk about the balance between
protecting secrets and protecting the constitutional rights of a free
press. Accusing a reporter of being a "co-conspirator"... shows a heavy
tilt toward secrecy and insufficient concern about a free press.

The Washington Post wrote of this:

The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything
done by George W. Bush's administration, and it uses technology to silence
critics in a way Richard Nixon could only have dreamed of.

To treat a reporter as a criminal for doing his job - seeking out
information the government doesn't want made public - deprives Americans
of the First Amendment freedom on which all other constitutional rights
are based. Guns? Privacy? Due process? Equal protection? If you can't
speak out, you can't defend those rights, either.

Beyond that, the administration's actions shatter the president's
credibility and discourage allies who would otherwise defend the
administration against bogus accusations such as those involving the
Benghazi "talking points." If the administration is spying on reporters
and accusing them of criminality just for asking questions - well, who
knows what else this crowd is capable of doing?

My Post colleague Ann E. Marimow, who broke the Rosen story, obtained the
affidavit by FBI agent Reginald Reyes seeking access to Rosen's private e-
mails. In the affidavit, Reyes stated that "there is probable cause to
believe that the reporter has committed or is committing a violation" of
the law against national security leaks. The affidavit detailed how the
FBI had monitored Rosen's comings and goings from the State Department and
tracked his various phone calls with the suspected leaker, analyst Stephen
Jin-Woo Kim.

Rosen's supposed crime? Reyes got his evidence from an e-mail from the
reporter: "I want to report authoritatively, and ahead of my competitors,
on new initiatives or shifts in U.S. policy, events on the ground in
[North Korea], what intelligence is picking up, etc. .?.?. I'd love to see
some internal State Department analyses. .?.?. In short: Let's break some
news, and expose muddle-headed policy when we see it, or force the
administration's hand to go in the right direction, if possible."

That is indeed compelling evidence - of good journalism.

Obama is establishing an ominous precedent.

179) Asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate himself for lying
under oath

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath. He said that he had
nothing to do with monitoring the emails of Fox News reporter James Rosen.
But it turns out that it was Holder's own signature on the search warrant.

Even the liberal Huffington Post said that Holder should be fired over
this.

Holder could get five years in prison.

So, did President Obama fire Holder?

Of course not!

Instead, Obama asked that Holder be investigated - not by an independent
investigating committee - but by Holder himself!

I can see it now...

Obama: "Did you lie?"

Holder: "No."

Obama: "OK. That's good enough for me. You're cleared of any wrongdoing."

180) Used Obamacare to illegally give the IRS additional powers without
approval from Congress

In May 2013 the Washington Post wrote:

The law allows the Department of Health and Human Services to set up
federal health exchanges in the holdout states. But the statute makes no
mention of the IRS providing credits and subsidies through federal
exchanges.

The IRS resolved this conundrum by denying its existence. In a May 2012
regulatory ruling, it asserted its own right to provide credits outside
the state exchanges as the reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous law.
But the language of the law is not ambiguous. And health scholars Jonathan
Adler and Michael Cannon, in an exhaustive recent analysis, find no
justification for the IRS's ruling in the legislative history of
Obamacare. "The statute," they argue, "and the lack of any support for the
IRS rule in the legislative record put defenders of the IRS rule in the
awkward position of arguing that it was so obviously Congress' intent to
offer tax credits in federal exchanges that despite a year of debate over
the PPACA, it never occurred to anyone to express that intent out loud. A
better explanation is that the PPACA's authors miscalculated when they
assumed states would establish exchanges."

So: The IRS seized the authority to spend about $800 billion over 10 years
on benefits that were not authorized by Congress. And the current IRS
scandal puts this decision in a new light. What was the role of politics
in shaping this regulatory decision? What pressure was applied?

181) Used environmental regulations to shut down an ambulance while it was
taking a patient to the hospital

In May 2013 the Washington Post reported:

A Wednesday shootout on the streets of Washington Highlands left a cop
injured and a carjacking suspect dead. But before the suspect expired, he
went on an unusual ambulance ride that involved moving him from one
vehicle to another on the shoulder of Interstate 295. While this might
appear to be another story of Fire and Emergency Medical Services
dysfunction, the story is rather more complicated. As WUSA-TV explains,
newer-model diesel engines are required by federal regulations to have
emission-control features that, in some circumstances, require the motor
to shut down for "regeneration" - a process in which the exhaust system
burns off trapped soot. The need for regeneration can be unpredictable.
The transfer to a second ambulance delayed 34-year-old Nathaniel McRae's
arrival at a hospital by seven minutes. FEMS insists the wait did not play
a role in his death.

182) Had "a serious management problem" with his refusal to fire bad
workers

A 2011 USA Today article on federal employees states:

"The federal government fired 0.55% of its workers in the budget year that
ended Sept. 30 - 11,668 employees in its 2.1 million workforce."

"White-collar federal workers have almost total job security after a few
years on the job. Last year, the government fired none of its 3,000
meteorologists, 2,500 health insurance administrators, 1,000 optometrists,
800 historians or 500 industrial property managers."

Wow! Those must be excellent workers, right?

Actually, no. The article also says:

"San Francisco State University management professor John Sullivan, an
expert on employee turnover, says the low departure rates show a failure
to release poor performers and those with obsolete skills. 'Rather than
indicating something positive, rates below 1% in the firing and layoff
components would indicate a serious management problem,' he says."

A serious management problem?

So who exactly is the highest ranking manager of the federal government?

It's President Obama.

183) Illegally solicited donations from health insurers

In May 2013, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
solicited donations from health insurers to help pay for Obamacare. Such
soliciting is illegal.

184) Chose an economic advisor who wanted roads and bridges to be built by
unqualified workers

Obama chose to have Robert Reich be his economic advisor. Regarding
Obama's "stimulus," Reich said:

"I am concerned, as I'm sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply
go to high skilled people... And therefore, in my remarks I have
suggested to you, and I'm certainly happy to talk about it more, ways in
which the money can be - criteria can be set so that they money does go to
others... people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-
skilled professionals."

185) Pressured unions to reduce the amount of health insurance coverage
for their employees

In May 2013, the New York Times reported:

Say goodbye to that $500 deductible insurance plan and the $20 co-payment
for a doctor's office visit. They are likely to become luxuries of the
past.

Expect to have your blood pressure checked or a prescription filled at a
clinic at your office, rather than by your private doctor.

Then blame the so-called Cadillac tax, which penalizes companies that
offer high-end health care plans to their employees.

Although the tax does not start until 2018, employers say they have to
start now to meet the deadline and they are doing whatever they can to
bring down the cost of their plans. Under the law, an employer or health
insurer offering a plan that costs more than $10,200 for an individual and
$27,500 for a family would typically pay a 40 percent excise tax on the
amount exceeding the threshold.

Tom Leibfried, a legislative director for the A.F.L.-C.I.O., one of the
unions whose plans are vulnerable to the tax, says the demands that
workers pay more for their care is a perennial aspect of labor
negotiations. "We're very concerned about the hollowing out of benefits in
general," he said. "What the excise tax will do is just fuel that."

186) Falsely said "We believe in the free market"

In June 2013, Obama said,
We don't think that top-down solutions are the right way to go. We
believe in the free market. We believe in a light touch when it comes to
regulations. - See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-we-
dont-want-tax-all-businesses-out-business#sthash.NDb17lc6.dpufWe believe
in the free market. We believe in a light touch when it comes to
regulations.

"We believe in the free market."

Obama was lying. The free market means that in the business world, it is
the customers, not the government, who pick winners and losers. But this
list contains a huge number of instances where Obama tried to use the
government to pick winners and losers in the business world.

187) Falsely said "We believe in a light touch when it comes to
regulations"

In June 2013, Obama said, "We believe in a light touch when it comes to
regulations."

He lied. For example, after Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra
pages of regulations to to it.

188) Said Catholic schools are "divisive" but did not say the same thing
about other religious schools

In June 2013, Obama said:

"If towns remain divided - if Catholics have their schools and buildings
and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and
fear or resentment are allowed to harden - that too encourages division
and discourages cooperation."

I can understand why a person might criticize religious schools in general
- although I myself happen to think that religious schools are a superior
alternative to public schools. But for Obama to single out one religion in
particular as being divisive, while not saying the same thing about all
religious schools in general, is a double standard.

189) Favored a new tax on Christmas trees so the money could be used to
subsidize Christmas trees

In November 2011, Obama proposed a new tax on Christmas trees, so that the
money could be used to subsidize Christmas trees. If this had been a Rube
Goldberg cartoon it would have been funny. But to suggest it as an actual
government policy is absurd.

190) Betrayed the people of the city that helped him launch his political
career

As part of his effort to get Obamacare passed, Obama repeatedly promised
that people could keep their current health insurance if they liked it.

More than any other city, the people of Chicago helped to get Obamacare
passed. Chicago is where Obama chose to live when he first got into
politics. The people there launched his political career and voted him
into office.

And this is how Obama repays them. In May 2013, the Chicago Tribune
reported:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to start reducing health insurance coverage next
year for more than 30,000 retired city workers and begin shifting them to
President Barack Obama's new federal system.

The move is aimed at saving the city money

Once the phaseout is complete, those retired workers would have to pay for
their own health insurance or get subsidies under the Affordable Care Act.
The city-subsidized coverage is particularly important to retired workers
who aren't yet eligible for Medicare

Henry Bayer, executive director of the American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employees Council 31, said the uncertainties of the
Affordable Care Act and the state insurance exchanges they would create
make the city's plan hard to assess.

"This uncertainty will cause anxiety and fear for tens of thousands of
seniors who gave their working lives to public service - men and women
whose retirement savings are already under attack in the name of 'pension
reform.'" Bayer said.

191) Proposed military interventionism in Syria

In June 2013, Obama proposed that the U.S. get involved in Syria's
military conflicts.

192) Planned to use military snipers to shoot innocent lions and cheetahs
in the wild

In June 2013, Obama was planning to use military snipers to shoot innocent
lions and cheetahs in the wild.

However, after the media reported on his plans, Obama got embarrassed, and
cancelled his plans.

193) Refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees who
illegally used their IRS credit cards for their own personal use

During Obama's first term, more than 1,000 IRS employees illegally used
their IRS credit cards for personal purchases, but Obama refused to fire
or prosecute them.

194) Defended intelligence chief who lied under oath

In March 2013, James Clapper, the director of national intelligence,
falsely stated under oath that the NSA was not gathering data on millions
of U.S. citizens. In June 2013, after it was reported that Clapper had
lied under oath, Obama defended him, instead of firing him.

195) Had the Secret Service visit a law abiding citizen who had criticized
his policies on Twitter

In April 2013, Obama sent the Secret Service to visit the home of Tom
Francois, a law abiding citizen who had criticized Obama's policies on
Twitter.

The Secret Service admitted that Francois had not made any threats against
Obama.

196) Had the IRS grant special, illegal favors for his brother's so-called
"charity"

In May 2013, the Dailer Caller reported that the IRS had taken the
"unprecedented" step of approving a non-profit application within just one
month. In this particular case, the application was from the Barack H.
Obama Foundation, a so-called "charity" which was headed by Malik Obama,
Barack Obama's brother.

In addition, the IRS illegally gave retroactive approval for the
organization's tax exempt status. Prior to getting this approval, the
organization had illegally solicited tax deductible donations even though
it did not have legal approval to do so.

197) Raised the interest rate on student loans to pay for Obamacare

Obamacare raised the interest rate on students loans from 5.3% to 6.8%.
The money is used to fund Obamacare.

198) Refused to fire or prosecute 15 IRS agents who illegally seized the
medical records of 10 million people

In March 2011, 15 IRS agents illegally seized the medical records of 10
million people without a warrant. Obama refused to fire or prosecute them.

199) Hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare

In June 2013, it was reported that Obama had hired 16,500 new IRS agents
to run Obamacare.

200) Tried to reward wasteful IRS spending with an increase in funding

In June 2013, Danny Werfel, Obama's new nominee to head the IRS, asked
Congress for an increase in funding. At the same time, NPR reported on
this waste of taxpayer money at an IRS conference:

Some of the 2,600 attendees received benefits, including baseball tickets
and stays in presidential suites that normally cost $1,500 to $3,500 per
night. In addition, 15 outside speakers were paid a total of $135,000 in
fees, with one paid $17,000 to talk about "leadership through art," the
committee said.

Considering how the IRS wasted all that money on luxury hotel rooms and
worthless speeches, Werfel really had some nerve asking Congress for more
money. By proposing to reward wasteful spending with a budget increase,
Werfel proved that he is incompetent to head the IRS. The fact that Obama
nominated such an incompetent person does not surprise me one bit.

I agree.

501) Forced a woman to undergo a strip search, an observed bowel movement,
and a CT scan without a warrant

In December 2012, federal agents forced a New Mexico woman to undergo a
strip search, an observed bowel movement, and a CT scan, all without a
warrant.

Laura Schauer Ives, the legal director for the New Mexico ACLU, said of
this:

"What is truly frightening about this incident is that it could have
happened to anyone... The failed drug war and militarized border region
have created an environment in which law enforcement officials
increasingly inflict extreme and illegal searches on innocent Americans."

502) Spent $914,000 to study fictional romance

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$914,000 to study "romance as told in novels, films, comics, advice books,
songs, and internet fan fiction."

503) Spent $65 million on television ads to promote tourism in New York
and New Jersey

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$65 million on television ads to promote tourism in New York and New
Jersey

504) Spent $1.5 million per year to tell the movie industry how to portray
the FBI in movies

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$1.5 million each year to tell the movie industry how to portray the FBI
in movies.

505) Threatened to fine Catholic nuns over Obamacare's birth control
mandate, all the way to the Supreme Court

Little Sisters of the Poor is a group of Catholic nuns that runs hospice
care, i.e., medical care for people who are dying.

Obama doesn't like letting these nuns practice their freedom of religion.
He threatened to fine them for violating Obamacare's birth control
mandate, and planned to take his meddling all the way to the Supreme
Court.

506) Michelle Snyder, the Obama official who oversaw the building of the
defective Obamacare website, announced her retirement soon after the
website's defective rollout

In December 2013, Michelle Snyder, the Obama official who oversaw the
building of the defective Obamacare website, announced her retirement.
Obama did not fire her. By retiring, she will be allowed to collect her
full pension and benefits.

507) AmeriCorps "volunteers" support Obamacare but want an exemption for
themselves

AmeriCorps is a federal agency that pays so-called "volunteers" to do
"charity" work.

In December 2013, it was reported that the insurance that AmeriCorps
provided to its "volunteers" did not meet Obamacare's minimum standards,
and that, as a result, these "volunteers" may have to pay the Obamacare
tax penalty for not having insurance.

Abby Grosslein, an AmeriCorps "volunteer" who lives in New Orleans, said:

"It would be nice if the government waived the penalty."

Note she she did not say that the penalty was wrong, or that the penalty
should be repealed. Instead, she merely wants certain people to be exempt
from the penalty. This is typical of the huge number of examples on this
list of liberals who support Obamacare for everyone else, but want
exemptions for themselves.

508) Falsely said that he had never set a target of 7 million Obamacare
enrollees by March 31, 2014

In June 2013, the Obama administration said that its goal was to have 7
million Obamacare enrollees by March 31, 2014.

However, in December 2013, the Obama administration claimed that it had
never said such a thing.

509) May force thousands of volunteer firefighter departments to close

In Janaury 2014, it was reported that thousands of volunteer firefighter
departments might be forced to close because they could not afford the
cost of Obamacare.

510) Falsely said that 2.1 million people had signed up for private
insurance under Obaamacare by the end of 2013

At the end of December 2013, the Obama administration claimed that 2.1
million people had signed up for private insurance under Obamacare.
However, this number included people who had left the insurance in their
shopping cart without actually paying for it. No legitimate online
retailer counts as sales items that people had left in their shopping cart
without paying for.

511) Self described "cheerleader" for Obamacare says she can't afford it
for her and her son

In January 2014, CBS News reported:

One Oregon mother says that she is unable to afford health insurance for
her and her 18-month-old son because it's too expensive.

The woman - who wishes to remain anonymous - tells KOIN-TV that she
originally championed President Barack Obama's signature health care law
because she thought it would help people in her situation.

"I've been a cheerleader for the Affordable Care Act since I heard about
it and I assumed that it was designed for people in my situation," she
told KOIN. "I was planning on using the Affordable Care Act and I had done
the online calculator in advance to make sure I was going to be able to
afford it."

512) Obamacare website can't handle it when someone has a new baby

In January 2014, Associated Press reported:

For now, the HealthCare.gov website can't handle new baby updates

513) Supports bailouts for private insurance companies

In January 2014, it was reported that Obamacare includes bailouts for
private insurance companies.

514) Wal-Mart's insurance was better and cheaper than Obamacare

In January 2014, it was reported that the insurance that Wal-Mart had been
giving its employees was better and cheaper than Obamacare.

515) Made it far more expensive for parents of disabled children to pay
for their health care

The Davert family lives in Bay City, Michigan. They have twins with
brittle bone disease.

Under their children's old insurance, the combined expenses for the two
children were capped at $2,500 per year. However, Obamacare forced their
old insurance to be canceled. Under their new Obaamacare insurance, the
combined expenses for the two children are capped at $10,200 per year.

516) Illegally extended the Obamacare enrollment deadline for people with
preexisting conditions

In January 2014, Obama delayed the Obamacare enrollment deadline for
people with preexisting conditions. Because Obama did this without
approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

517) Gave illegal Obamacare subsidies to people in the 36 states that did
not set up their own state exchanges

Only 14 states created their own Obamacare exchange.

As the Obamacare law was written, it says that Obamacare subsidies are to
be given out

"through an Exchange established by the State."

Despite the wording of the Obamacare law, Obama illegally gave Obamacare
subsidies to people in the 36 states that did not set up their own
exchanges.

518) Caused Bill Clinton's favorite Washington D.C. restaurant to shut
down its buffet

Filomena is Bill Clinton's favorite Washington D.C. restaurant. On January
1, 2014, it shut down its buffet because of Obamacare.

519) Illegally delayed Obamacare's rules on equal coverage

Obamacare prohibits private employers from giving better insurance to top
executives than to other employees. In January 2014, Obama delayed this
provision of Obamacare. Because Obama did this without approval from
Congress, his action was illegal.

520) Told reporters to stop reporting his low poll numbers

In Decmember 2013, Joel Benenson, Obama's pollster, told reporters to stop
reporting Obama's low poll numbers.

521) Falsely said that he had met his half brother only recently

Obama first met Mark Obama Ndesandjo, his half bother, in the 1980s.
However, in 2013, Obama said that the two had recently met for the first
time.

522) Spent $544,338 for an "Enhanced Company Profile" on LinkedIn

In January 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$544,338 for an "Enhanced Company Profile" on LinkedIn.

523) Illegally tried to force private businesses to post pro-union notices

In January 2014, two federal appeals courts struck down Obama's attempt to
force private businesses to post pro-union notices.

524) In 2013, Obamacare caused a net reduction in the number of people who
had insurance

On January 1, 2014, the Daily Caller reported that during 2013, Obamacare
had caused a net reduction in the number of people who had insurance.

525) Criticized the Daily Caller for truthfully reporting that in 2013,
Obamacare had caused a net reduction in the number of people who had
insurance

On January 1, 2014, the Daily Caller reported that during 2013, Obamacare
had caused a net reduction in the number of people who had insurance. On
January 2, 2014, the Obama administration criticized the Daily Caller for
truthfully reporting this information.

526) Obamacare website had such horrible security that it was hacked by
one person in less than four minutes with nothing but a regular web
browser

In January 2014, hacking expert David Kennedy was able to hack into the
Obamacare website in less than four minutes, using nothing but a regular
web browser. During that time, he was able to access the private
information of 70,000 people.

527) Obamacare website is exempt from laws that require other websites to
report security breaches to their customers

The Obamacare website is exempt from laws that require other websites to
tell their customers when their private information has been breached.

528) Less than one third of Obamacare enrollees were previously uninsured

In January 2014, it was reported that less than one third of the people
who had enrolled at the Obamacare website were previously uninsured.

529) Gave early release to a lawyer who had been convicted of aiding
Islamic terrorists

In December 2013, the Obama administration gave early release to Lynne
Stewart, who had been convicted of aiding Islamic terrorists.

530) Forced U.S. taxpayers to bailout Fiat, an Italian company

In January 2014, it was reported that some of the money that Obama had
used to bailout Chrysler ended up being used to bailout Fiat, an Italian
company.

531) U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against Obama administration's attack on
religious freedom

The Obama administration tried to force Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran
Church and School in Redford, Michigan, to hire someone whom it did not
want to hire. In January 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against
the Obama administration's attack on religious freedom.

532) Revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins' name
because some people thought it was offensive

In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for
the Washington Redskins' name because some people thought it was
offensive.

This sets a horrible precedent.

Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would
consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc.
The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many
songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent,
trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it offensive, then I
can't even begin to imagine how much damage this would cause to the
concept of intellectual property, as well as to the arts, sciences, music,
literature, movies, etc.

There is no such thing as a right to not be offended. The whole point of
protecting free speech in the first place is to protect speech that some
people might find offensive. If we only protected speech that was dull,
bland, and non-controversial, there wouldn't be much point to having such
protection in the first place.

533) Said Osama bin Laden's former bodyguard was no longer a "significant
threat" to the United States, and planned to release him

In January 2014, the Obama administration said that Mahmoud Abd Al Aziz Al
Mujahid, Osama bin Laden's former bodyguard, was no longer a "significant
threat" to the United States, and planned to release him.

534) Lied about his involvement with ACORN

During a 2008 debate with John McCain, Obama falsely said that the only
time he had ever been involved with ACORN was when he had represented them
in a lawsuit where they tried to get Illinois to adopt a "motor-voter"
law.

In realty, there were several other times that Obama had been involved
with ACORN.

For example, Obama had taught leadership training sessions for ACORN.

In addition, Obama had also worked as an organizer for Project Vote, an
ACORN offshoot. The New York Times quoted Obama as saying:

"Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter
registration drives in Illinois, Acorn was smack dab in the middle of it."

Furthermore, Obama had been on the board of directors of the Woods Fund
when it gave ACORN $75,000 in 2001, and $70,000 in 2002.

Also, during the 2008 primary campaign, Obama's campaign had given
Citizens Services Inc., an ACORN affiliate, more than $800,000 for "get
out the vote" efforts. However, Obama's campaign had falsely told the FEC
that the money was for "staging, sound, lighting."

535) Although Obama complains about income inequality, his own policies
have made income inequality even worse

In January 2014, President Obama complained about income inequality, Wall
St., wealthy investors, and bankers.

However, while Senator, Obama had voted for the $700 billion TARP bank
bailout bill, which worsened the problem of income inequality, and forced
poor and middle class taxpayers to bail out the very same Wall St.,
wealthy investors, and bankers that Obama had complained about.

Obamacare has also worsened the problem of income inequality because it
has caused many employers to replace full time jobs with part time jobs in
order to avoid the Obamacare employer mandate.

536) Accused lenders of "racism" without actually knowing the races of the
people who had been "discriminated" against

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had accused
lenders in the auto industry of "racism." However, the auto industry does
not report or keep track of the race of the people whom it lends money
too, and the Obama administration's accusation of "racism" was based on
guessing the races of the people who had borrowed money.

537) Illegally gave out private info of farmers and ranchers

In July 2012, the Obama administration illegally gave out the home
addresses, phone numbers, GPS coordinates, and medical histories of up to
100,000 agricultural workers.

538) Proposed giving wind farms 30 year permits to kill bald and golden
eagles

Federal law prohibits the killing of bald and golden eagles, regardless of
whether the killing is done on purpose or by accident. However, in January
2014, the Obama administration proposed giving wind farms 30 year permits
that would allow them to kill these birds.

539) Allowed members of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization,
to skip TSA screening

The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. In April 2012, the
Obama administration allowed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to skip TSA
screening.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration gave a very invasive patdown to a
three-year-old boy in a wheelchair, which caused the boy to tremble in
fear. The Obama administration gave an aggressive patdown to a seven-year-
old girl with cerebral palsy. The Obama administration said that a four-
year-old girl was a "high security threat." The Obama administration
placed an 18-month-old girl on its no fly list. The Obama administration
gave a patdown to Henry Kissinger. The Obama administration forced a 95-
year-old cancer patient to remove her adult diaper and fly without it. The
Obama administration ripped open the urostomy bag of a 61-year-old bladder
cancer survivor, and forced him to fly covered in his own urine. The Obama
administration harassed a sick 3-year-old boy, and caused him to miss his
flight.

540) Obama's nominee for ambassador to Norway "displayed total ignorance"
about Norway, but he did raise more than half a million dollars for
Obama's 2012 campaign

In January 2014, the Norway edition of The Local reported that George
Tsunis, Obama's nominee for ambassador to Norway, had "displayed total
ignorance" about Norway during a U.S. Senate hearing. At the same time,
the Huffington Post reported that Tsunis had raised more than half a
million dollars for Obama's 2012 campaign.

541) Obamacare encourages employers to limit the size of their workforce
to no more than 49 employees

Obamacare's employer mandate only applies to employers with 50 or more
employees. This gives employers an incentive to limit the size of their
workforce to no more than 49 employees.

542) Spent $2,797,979 so people in Veitnam could watch television

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$2,797,979 so people in Veitnam could watch television.

543) Obama had anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza arrested for violating
campaign finance laws, even though Obama himself had violated campaign
finance laws three different times without being arrested

In August 2012, Dinesh D'Souza released 2016: Obama's America, a movie
that was critical of Obama.

In January 2014, D'Souza was arrested for violating campaign finance laws.

In May 2014, D'Souza pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws.

In September 2014, D'Souza was sentenced to live in a halfway house for
eight months, pay a $30,000 fine, perform 260 days of community service,
and receive counseling.

However, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws on
three different occasions (see here, here, and here), Obama never had
himself arrested.

Numerous legal experts have said that D'Souza's arrest was politically
motivated.

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said of D'Souza's arrest:

"This is clearly a case of selective prosecution for one of the most
common things done during elections, which is to get people to raise money
for you... If they went after everyone who did this, there would be no
room in jails for murderers."

"This is an outrageous prosecution and is certainly a misuse of resources.
It raises the question of why he is being selected for prosecution among
the many, many people who commit similar crimes... This sounds to me like
it is coming from higher places. It is hard for me to believe this did not
come out of Washington or at least get the approval of those in
Washington."

Former Federal Election Commissioner David Mason said of D'Souza's arrest:

"What struck me first was that it is unusual in cases like these for the
FBI to go out and actually arrest someone, simply because it is not
necessary... And even less so in this case because [D'Souza] has enough
prominence that it is fairly obvious that he is not a flight risk. White-
collar indictments are made lots of times without an arrest being made."

Commenting on D'Souza's arrest, former acting U.S. attorney general George
Terwilliger of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius said that there were

"legitimate questions that could be asked about the political motivation
for bringing the case."

Dominic Gentile of Gordon Silver, an expert on the enforcement of campaign
finance law, conducted extensive research on other people who had done the
same thing as D'Souza, and concluded:

"Twenty thousand dollars?"I've never heard of a $20,000 criminal case for
campaign finance violations."

Those legal experts are correct. The real reason D'Souza was arrested was
because he made an anti-Obama movie. As long as Obama never makes an anti-
Obama movie, Obama will never be arrested for this three violations of
campaign finance law.

544) Obamacare makes it harder for patients to get knee replacements, hip
replacements, angioplasty, bypass surgery, and cataract operations

In January 2014, it was reported that Obamacare makes it harder for
patients to get knee replacements, hip replacements, angioplasty, bypass
surgery, and cataract operations.

545) Obama's administration is "the most secretive White House that I have
ever been involved in covering"

In January 2014, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson said that
Obama's administration

"is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in
covering, and that includes - I spent 22 years of my career in Washington
and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was
Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush's first term."

546) Made even more illegal changes to Obamacare

In February 2014, the New York Times reported:

The "employer mandate," which was originally supposed to take effect last
month, had already been delayed to Jan. 1, 2015, and now the
administration says that employers with 50 to 99 employees will not have
to comply until 2016 - allowing Democrats to placate business concerns and
pushing the issue well beyond this year's midterm elections.

In addition, the administration said the requirement would be put into
effect gradually for employers with 100 or more employees. Employers in
this category will need to offer coverage to 70 percent of full-time
employees in 2015 and 95 percent in 2016 and later years, or they will be
subject to tax penalties.

Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was
illegal.

547) Illegally banned employers from firing any of their employees to
avoid the Obamacare mandate

In a February 2014 article about Obamacare's employer mandate, the
Washington Post reported that Obama had banned employers from "cutting
back on positions just to fall below the threshold." Because Obama did
this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

548) Obamacare caused sick children in Seattle, Washington, to lose access
to doctors

In February 2014, CBS News reported that Obamacare had caused sick
children in Seattle, Washington, to lose access to doctors.

In the report, Dr. Sandy Melzer said:

"The exclusion of a major provider like Seattle Children's from a major
insurance network in this market is unprecedented... We're seeing denials
in care, disruptions in care. We're seeing a great deal of confusion, and
at times, anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought
insurance, thinking that their children were going to be covered, and
they've in fact found that it's a false promise."

The report can be seen here:


549) Falsely said that Obamacare "will cover every American"

In June 2007, Obama said

"I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first
term as president that will cover every American."

However, in September 2013, the Washington Post reported

"The Congressional Budget Office estimated back in 2012, before the
Supreme Court even gave states the option of opting out of the Medicaid
expansion, that there would be 27 million people who lacked health
insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act."

550) Obamacare's tax on tanning salons applies to gym members who never
use the gym's tanning salons

Obamacare includes a tax on tanning salons, and this tax applies to gym
members who never use the gym's tanning salons.

551) Although Obama sued states for their "racist" requirement of voter
ID, Obamacare requires ID

Obama's Justice Department blocked Texas's voter ID law, claiming that it
was "racist." Obama also sued North Carolina for requiring voter ID.

However, Obamacare requires people to provide ID.

552) Falsely said, "When I'm president, I will go line by line to make
sure that we are not spending money unwisely"

In September 2008, Obama said,

"When I'm president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not
spending money unwisely."

However, if you search this list for the word "spent," you will find many
examples of Obama wasting the taxpayers' money.

553) Obama refused to file charges against Hilda Solis, his Secretary of
Labor, for illegally avoided reporting thousands of dollars worth of free
private jet travel

In February 2014, it was reported that during conformation hearings in
2009, Hilda Solis, Obama's Secretary of Labor, had illegally avoided
reporting to the Federal Election Commission the thousands of dollars
worth of free private jet travel that she had been given by the
International Union of Operating Engineers. Obama refused to file any
charges against her.

554) Obama falsely said, "That's the good thing about being president, I
can do whatever I want."

In February 2014, Obama said:

"That's the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want."

Obama was lying. In truth, the powers of the President are defined and
limited by the U.S. Constitution. Obama does not have the legal authority
to do whatever he wants. Unfortunately, that hasn't stopped him from doing
a huge number of illegal things that are on this list.

555) Obama's nominee for ambassador to Argentina has never been to
Argentina, but did raise more than $500,000 for Obama's re-election
campaign

In February 2014, it was reported that Noah Mamet, Obama's nominee for
ambassador to Argentina, had never been to Argentina, but that he had
raised more than $500,000 for Obama's re-election campaign.

556) Falsely claimed he never said he wanted to "fundamentally transform
the United States of America"

Five days before the 2008 election, Obama said:

"We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States
of America."

You can see and hear him saying those exact words in this video:


However, on February 2, 2014, Obama told Bill O'Reilly that he never said
those words. Here is the transcript from the interview:

O'Reilly: OK. I got a letter from Kathy LaMaster, Fresno, California. I
said I would read one letter from the folks, all right?

Obama: All right.

O'Reilly: "Mr. President, why do you feel it's necessary to fundamentally
transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and
success?"

Obama: I don't think we have to fundamentally transform the nation.

O'Reilly: But those are your words.

557) Spent $464,272 to find out why gay men in Peru get Syphilis

In February 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent
$464,272 to find out why gay men in Peru get Syphilis.

558) Obamacare may cause the government to seize homes from the estates of
poor people

Between 1993 and 2013, the state of California seized $978.5 million worth
of assets from the estates of medicaid recipients.

Obamacare requires everyone in the U.S. whose income is less than 138% of
the poverty level to enroll in medicaid.

Based on those two pieces of information, it seems likely that Obamacare
will result in the homes of quite a few poor people being seized by the
government.

In February 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported:

One thing the ACA didn't change was Medicaid's estate recovery rule. Under
a law enacted in 1993, states are required to seek recovery from the
estates of deceased enrollees for the costs of long-term care, such as
nursing-home care. The recovery rule applied to those who received that
care when they were 55 and older, or who were permanently
institutionalized at any age.

Medicaid eligibility for the expanded programs is based on income alone,
which means there might be some new members with low incomes but sizable
illiquid estates, such as homes worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The prospect of asset seizures raises people's hackles, especially since
under the Affordable Care Act, those earning less than 138% of the poverty
level may be offered no choice for subsidized health insurance except
Medicaid.

On the whole, the estate recovery program hasn't been a big moneymaker for
government at any level. Since 1993, California has collected $978.5
million

559) Contradicted his own advice that everyone in California should
conserve water during the drought

In February 2014, when there was a drought in California, Obama said:

"It can't just be a matter of there's going to be less and less water so
I'm going to grab more and more of a shrinking share of water... Instead
what we have to do is all come together and figure out how we all are
going to make sure that agricultural needs, urban needs, industrial needs,
environmental and conservation concerns are all addressed."

However, during this very same drought, Time magazine reported:

On Saturday, Obama played at the Sunnylands estate, built by the late
billionaire Walter Annenberg, which features a nine-hole course that is
played like 18 holes. The following day he golfed at billionaire Oracle
founder Larry Ellison's 19-hole Porcupine Creek. On Presidents' Day, Obama
hit the links at Sunnylands once again.

The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17% of all
water there, and one-quarter of the water pumped out of the region's at-
risk groundwater aquifer... Each of the 124 Coachella Valley courses, on
average, uses nearly 1 million gallons (3.8 million L) a day because of
the hot and dry climate, three to four times more water per day than the
average American golf course.

560) Falsely claimed to have increased the number of deportations of
illegal immigrants

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had falsely
claimed to have increased the number of deportations of illegal
immigrants.

561) Illegally changed the immigration laws to allow entry into the U.S.
by immigrants who had supplied "limited material support" to terrorists

In February 2014, Obama changed the immigration laws to allow entry into
the U.S. by immigrants who had supplied "limited material support" to
terrorists. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his
action was illegal.

562) Falsely said Obamacare would not cover illegal aliens

In September 2009, Obama said:

"There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal
immigrants. This, too, is false - the reforms I'm proposing would not
apply to those who are here illegally."

However, in February 2014, the Spanish version of California's Obamacare
website said:

"No temas si eres indocumentado/a y quieres inscribir a tu familia en un
seguro médico."

In English, this means:

"Fear not if you are undocumented and want to enroll your family in health
insurance."

563) A judge who was nominated by Obama confused the Declaration of
Independence with the U.S. Constitution in one of her rulings

In December 2010, Obama nominated Arenda L. Wright Allen to be on the
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

In a February 2014 federal court ruling, judge Allen wrote

"Our Constitution declares that 'all men' are created equal"

Those words are in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

It's perfectly understandable why a person with no legal training might
make this mistake. But for a federal judge, there's no excuse.

564) Although Obama has always supported the U.S. income tax, he
complained about the fact that U.S. Olympic athletes had to pay income
taxes on their winnings

Obama has always supported the U.S. federal income tax. However, during
the 2012 summer Olympics, and then again during the 2014 winter Olympics,
Obama complained about the fact that U.S. Olympic athletes had to pay
income taxes on their winnings.

565) Planned to illegally put government bureaucrats inside TV stations
and newspaper offices to monitor their activities

In February 2014, Ajit Pai, a commissioner of the Federal Communications
Commission, wrote the following in the Wall St. Journal:

Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government
into newsrooms across the country. With its "Multi-Market Study of
Critical Information Needs," or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers
to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which
stories to run.

... the FCC's queries may be hard for the broadcasters to ignore. They
would be out of business without an FCC license...

... why does the CIN study include newspapers when the FCC has no
authority to regulate print media?

Also in February 2014, the Washington Examiner wrote:

The First Amendment says "Congress shall make no law... abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press... " But under the Obama
administration, the Federal Communications Commission is planning to send
government contractors into the nation's newsrooms to determine whether
journalists are producing articles, television reports, Internet content,
and commentary that meets the public's "critical information needs." Those
"needs" will be defined by the administration, and news outlets that do
not comply with the government's standards could face an uncertain future.
It's hard to imagine a project more at odds with the First Amendment.

If the FCC goes forward, it's not clear what will happen to news
organizations that fall short of the new government standards. Perhaps
they will be disciplined. Or perhaps the very threat of investigating
their methods will nudge them into compliance with the administration's
journalistic agenda. What is sure is that it will be a gross violation of
constitutional rights.

566) Illegally raised the minimum wage for employees of federal
contractors

In February 2014, Obama raised the minimum wage for employees of federal
contractors. Because he did this without approval from Congress, his
action was illegal.

567) Obamacare requires pizza restaurants to post the calorie counts for
34 million different combinations of pizza toppings

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare requires pizza
restaurants to post the calorie counts for 34 million different
combinations of pizza toppings.

568) Commander-in-Chief Obama allowed U.S. soldiers to wear Islamic
beards, turbans, and hijabs as part of their military uniform

In January 2014, Commander-in-Chief Obama began allowing U.S. soldiers to
wear Islamic beards, turbans, and hijabs as part of their military
uniform.

569) Illegally gave Massachusetts another Obamacare waiver

In February 2014, Obama gave Massachusetts a three month extension to fix
its defective Obamacare website and get people enrolled in Obamacare. This
was illegal for two reasons. First, Obama did it without approval from
Congress. And second, the Constitution requires that federal law apply
equally to every state.

570) Obamacare prevented Chris Dunn, who was in terrible pain, from
getting back surgery

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had prevented Chris Dunn,
of Sonora, California, who was in terrible pain, from getting back
surgery.

571) Obamacare caused leukemia patient Julie Boonstra to lose her
insurance

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had caused leukemia
patient Julie Boonstra, of Michigan, to lose her insurance. A video of her
can be seen here:


572) Obamacare caused lupus patient Emilie Lamb to lose her insurance

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had caused lupus patient
Emilie Lamb to lose her insurance, and that her new insurance was costing
her an extra $6,000 a year in higher premiums and co-pays. A video of her
can be seen here:


573) More than 12,000 Congressional staffers enrolled in Obamacare's
"small-business" exchange even though they did not own or work for a small
business

In February 2014, it was reported that more than 12,000 Congressional
staffers had enrolled in Obamacare's "small-business" exchange even though
they did not own or work for a small business.

574) Obamacare caused cancer patient and Republican U.S. Senator Tom
Coburn to lose his oncologist

Tom Coburn is a Republican U.S. Senator from Oklahoma. He voted against
Obamacare. He has prostate cancer. In January 2014, it was reported that
Obamacare had caused his insurance coverage to be reduced, and his
oncologist was no longer covered. Coburn started paying out of his own
pocket to continue seeing the doctor who was treating his cancer.

575) Obamacare's 29 hour work week disproportionately hurt women

In January 2014, the New York Times wrote:

A "29er" refers to someone working 29 hours per week, the maximum that an
hourly employee can work and still be considered part time by the federal
government, as defined under the Affordable Care Act.

Part-time employees do not create a health-insurance requirement or a
penalty for their employer, which gives large and small employers an
incentive to reduce at least some employees' hours to 29 hours.

I used the Census Bureau's data to put together a sample of people likely
to be 29ers over the next couple of years, based on working 30 to 37 hours
per week before this year and not having health insurance available
through a spouse (if married). Women outnumber men more than 2 to 1 among
likely 29ers. The 29ers are also likely to be less than 30 years old.

Naturally, working fewer hours means less pay. By disproportionately
reducing women's work hours, health reform may have the unintended
consequence of increasing the gap between men's and women's wages and
salaries.

576) Some Obamacare "navigators" had been previously convicted of identity
theft

In January 2014, it was reported that some Obamacare "navigators" had been
previously convicted of forgery. In August 2013, it had been reported that
the Obama administration would not be doing background checks on Obamacare
"navigators," despite the fact that these "navigators" would have access
to people's personal, private, and financial information. Obama considers
background checks to be "racist."

577) WTAE shows small business employees complaining about the high cost
of Obamacare

WTAE is the ABC TV station in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In this video,
they show small business employees complaining about the high cost of
Obamacare:


578) "Public Sector Cuts Part-Time Shifts to Bypass Insurance Law"

In February 2014, the New York Times reported:

Public Sector Cuts Part-Time Shifts to Bypass Insurance Law

Cities, counties, public schools and community colleges around the country
have limited or reduced the work hours of part-time employees to avoid
having to provide them with health insurance under the Affordable Care
Act, state and local officials say.

Among those whose hours have been restricted in recent months are police
dispatchers, prison guards, substitute teachers, bus drivers, athletic
coaches, school custodians, cafeteria workers and part-time professors.

In Medina, Ohio, about 30 miles south of Cleveland, Mayor Dennis Hanwell
said the city had lowered the limit for part-time employees to 29 hours a
week, from 35. Workers' wages were reduced accordingly, he said.

Lawrence County, in western Pennsylvania, reduced the limit for part-time
employees to 28 hours a week, from 32. Dan Vogler, the Republican chairman
of the county Board of Commissioners, said the cuts affected prison guards
and emergency service personnel at the county's 911 call center.

In Virginia, part-time state employees are generally not allowed to work
more than 29 hours a week on average over a 12-month period. Thousands of
part-time state employees had been working more than that

To hold down the work hours of school bus drivers, Vigo County has reduced
field trips for children and cut back transportation to athletic events.
School employees who had two part-time jobs totaling more than 30 hours a
week - for example, bus driver and basketball coach - were required to
give up one of the jobs.

The Obama administration says "there is absolutely no evidence" of any job
loss related to the Affordable Care Act.

The American Federation of Teachers lists on its website three dozen
public colleges and universities in 15 states that it says have restricted
the work assignments of adjunct or part-time faculty members to avoid the
cost of providing health insurance.

The University of Akron, in Ohio, has cut back the hours of 400 part-time
faculty members who were teaching more than 29 hours a week, said Eileen
Korey, a spokeswoman for the school.

579) Kathleen Sebelius falsely said "There is absolutely no evidence - and
every economist will tell you this - that there is any job loss related to
the Affordable Care Act."

In February 2014, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius
said:

"There is absolutely no evidence - and every economist will tell you this
- that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act."

However, in November 2012, in response to the Obamacare's medical device
tax, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to layoff
employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170
planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare's medical device tax had
destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from
being created.

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other
Democratic hypocrites who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a
letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices,
claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

580) "Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care
rollout"

In January 2014, the Washington Post reported:

Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care rollout

Leaders of two major unions, including the first to endorse Obama in 2008,
said they have been betrayed by an administration that wooed their support
for the 2009 legislation with promises to later address the peculiar needs
of union-negotiated insurance plans that cover millions of workers.

Their complaints reflect a broad sense of disappointment among many labor
leaders, who say the Affordable Care Act has subjected union health plans
to new taxes and mandates while not allowing them to share in the
subsidies that have gone to private insurance companies competing on the
newly created exchanges.

After dozens of frustrating meetings with White House officials over the
past year, including one with Obama, a number of angry labor officials say
their members are far less likely to campaign and turn out for Democratic
candidates in the midterm elections.

"We want to hold the president to his word: If you like your health-care
coverage, you can keep it, and that just hasn't been the case," said
Donald "D." Taylor, president of Unite Here, the union that represents
about 400,000 hotel and restaurant workers and provided a crucial boost to
Obama by endorsing him just after his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton had won
the New Hampshire primary.

Taylor and Terry O'Sullivan, president of the Laborers' International
Union of North America, laid out their grievances this week in a terse
letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate
Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), saying they are "bitterly
disappointed" in the administration.

581) Illegally seized more than one million dollars in tip money from a
stripper

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had
illegally seized more than one million dollars in tip money from a
stripper.

582) Part of the Obamacare website was created by a "repressive
dictatorship" in Eastern Europe

In February 2014, it was reported that part of the Obamacare website was
created by Belarus, a "repressive dictatorship" in Eastern Europe.

583) 70% of California doctors boycotted Obamacare, but California's
Obamacare website falsely said they were participating

In December 2013, it was reported that 70% of California doctors were
boycotting Obamacare. However, many of these doctors were falsely listed
on California's Obamacare website as participating in Obamacare.

584) A self described "complete fan of the Affordable Care Act" who had
cancer complained that Obamacare had caused her to lose coverage for her
oncologist

Danielle Nelson lives in Aliso Viejo, California. She has non-Hodgkin's
lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. After she found out that Obamacare had
caused her to lose coverage for her oncologist, she said:

"I'm a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act, but now I can't sleep at
night."

585) Caused U.S. ranking in the World Press Freedom Index to fall by 14
places in just one year

The World Press Freedom Index in an annual ranking of countries created by
Reporters Without Borders. During just one year of Obama's presidency,
from 2013 to 2014, the U.S. ranking on the list fell by 14 places,
dropping from #32 to #46.

586) During Obama's first five years as President, marketable U.S. debt
more than doubled

During the five year period that ended at the end of January 2014,
marketable U.S. debt increased from $5.7 trillion at to $11.8 trillion.

587) Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare
website that enrolled zero people

Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website.
As of February 28, 2014, exactly zero people had signed up at Oregon's
Obamacare website.

588) Illegally shut down a privately owned farm in Tehama County,
California

In early 2013, the Obama administration shut down Duarte Nursery in Tehama
County, California, without due process.

589) Obamacare's medical device tax destroyed or prevented the creation of
33,000 jobs

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare's medical device tax had
destroyed 14,000 jobs, and had prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs
from being created.

590) A convicted terrorist who murdered two people was hired as an
Obamacare "navigator"

In Israel, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted of putting a bomb in a box of
candy on a grocery store shelf, which killed two people. In 2013, she was
hired as an Obamacare "navigator." Obamacare "navigators" are not subject
to federal background checks, because Obama considers them to be "racist."

591) Harry Reid falsely said that "all" Obamacare horror stories were
"untrue"

In February 2014, Senate majority leader Harry Read said:

"There's plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue."

You can see him saying it here:


He was lying. This list contains many true Obamacare horror stories.

592) Congressman Gary Peters threatened to revoke the licenses of TV
stations if they continued airing an anti-Obamacare ad

In February 2014, Congressman Gary Peters (D-Michigan) had his lawyers
sent a letter to TV stations, threatening to revoke their licenses if they
continued airing an anti-Obamacare ad. The ad can see seen here:
http://youtu.be/Kpjyr1x7mC0

593) Obamacare caused Catherine Blackwood to lose coverage for her cancer
medications

Catherine Blackwood lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and manages the
Family Medicine Center. She has cancer. In November 2013, Obamacare caused
her to lose her insurance policy that had been paying for her cancer
medications. Her new Obamacare policy does not cover her cancer
medications.

594) Approved giving 200 Abrams tanks to a Shariah dictatorship

Obama approved giving 200 Abrams tanks to Egypt, which is a Shariah
dictatorship.

595) Obamacare won't let people switch from one Obamacare plan to another

Andrew Robinson lives in Orlando, Florida. In early 2014, after he
enrolled in one Obamacare plan, he changed his mind and decided that he
wanted a different plan. Over a period of several weeks, he spent 50 hours
on the phone trying to cancel his original Obamacare plan, but was not
allowed to do so.

596) Falsely said "You can't say the Affordable Care Act has killed job
growth"

In February 2014, White House health care adviser Phil Schiliro said:

"You can't say the Affordable Care Act has killed job growth."

However, in November 2012, in response to the medical device tax that is
part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to
layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker
(1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare's medical device tax had
destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from
being created.

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other
Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry
Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the
tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

597) A doctor summed up Obamacare in one sentence

In August 2012, Dr. Barbara Bellar of Chicago, Illinois, summed up
Obamacare with the following sentence:

"So, let me get this straight (this is a long sentence), we're going to
be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if
we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS
agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand
it, passed by a congress that didn't read it, but exempted themselves from
it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a
treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for
four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a
surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke...
so what the blank could possibly go wrong?"

598) Tried to shut down organic farms that had not done anything wrong

In February 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported:

Now, farmers are discovering that the FDA's proposed rules would curtail
many techniques that are common among organic growers, including spreading
house-made fertilizers, tilling cropland with grazing animals, and
irrigating from open creeks.

Suddenly, from small family operations nestled in the foothills of
Appalachia to the sophisticated organic-grower networks that serve Los
Angeles and San Francisco, the farms that celebrity chefs and food-
conscious consumers jostle to buy from are facing an unexpected adversary.

They're fighting back. Even though full enforcement of the rules is still
years away, they are warning customers that some farms would have to
close.

"They are going to drive farms out of business," said Dave Runsten, policy
director for Community Alliance with Family Farmers in Davis, Calif.

"The consumer groups behind this don't understand farming," Runsten says.
"They talk out of both sides of their mouth. They demand these one-size-
fits-all regulations, then say, 'I don't want to hurt those cute little
farmers at the farmers market. I shop at the farmers market.' It is
frustrating."

Many farmers who take part in the locally grown food movement argue that
contamination is a problem of industrial-sized farms and that some of the
practices the FDA might ban actually make consumers safer.

599) Illegally put the medical and financial information of more than
5,000 veterans on the internet, after ignoring warnings about problems
with security

In February 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had
illegally put the medical and financial information of more than 5,000
veterans on the internet, after ignoring warnings about problems with
security.

600) New York Times and Ralph Nader criticized Obama for illegally seizing
private property and violating disclosure laws

In February 2014, the New York Times and Ralph Nader criticized Obama for
illegally seizing assets from shareholders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,
and for illegally avoiding disclosing this information to shareholders.

The fifth amendment requires that compensation be given for such seizures,
but Obama did not do this.

Federal disclosure laws require that shareholders be informed of this
information immediately, but Obama waited more than three years to tell
them.

In February 2014, the New York Times wrote:

Would you buy stock in a company that barred you from sharing in its
future earnings? Of course not. Participating in the upside is what stock
ownership is all about.

And yet, as of December 2010, holders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac common
stock were subject to such a restriction by the United States government.
They didn't know it at the time, though, because the policy was not
disclosed.

This month, an internal United States Treasury memo that outlined this
restriction came up at a forum in Washington.

The memo was addressed to Timothy F. Geithner, then the Treasury
secretary, from Jeffrey A. Goldstein, then the under secretary for
domestic finance. In discussing Fannie and Freddie, the beleaguered
government-sponsored enterprises rescued by taxpayers in September 2008,
the memo referred to "the administration's commitment to ensure existing
common equity holders will not have access to any positive earnings from
the G.S.E.'s in the future."

The memo, which was produced in a lawsuit filed by Fannie and Freddie
shareholders, was dated Dec. 20, 2010. Securities laws require material
information - that is, information that might affect an investor's view of
a company - to be disclosed. That the government would deny a company's
shareholders all its profits certainly seems material, but the existence
of this policy cannot be found in the financial filings of Fannie Mae.
Neither have the Treasury's discussions about the future of the two
finance giants mentioned the administration's commitment to shut common
stockholders out of future earnings.

In February 2014, Ralph Nader wrote:

"What legal authority does the Administration have, as this section of the
memo intimates, to completely wipe out shareholders - even after taxpayers
have been repaid (as is likely to happen soon)?"

"Contrary to this statement, neither the memo - nor Treasury's actions by
unilaterally amending the PSPAs - leaves one with the impression that this
point in the memo is meant to highlight the importance of repaying the
taxpayers. It seems to be setting a precedent for using and abusing the
GSEs' shareholders."

"Taxpayers should recoup their investment in the GSEs; but the
Administration does not have to wipe out shareholders in order for this to
happen."

"This need not be an issue of choosing taxpayers over shareholders. The
federal government has similarly recouped taxpayer money used to bailout
other corporations (A.I.G., Citigroup, etc.) involved in the financial
collapse, but has allowed the shareholders of those companies to share in
their recovery. The same should be the case with the GSEs."

On 8 Aug 2016 00:39:25 -0400, Bradley K. Sherman says...
In American history, we've never had a President
who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.

301) Signed health care reform that broke his promise not to increase
taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year

On September 12, 2008, Obama promised:

"I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than
$250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax,
not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your
taxes."

In 2010, Obama signed Obamacare.

In 2012, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration
argued that Obamacare is a tax.

302) Pushed millions of working people "into a regulatory health coverage
no man's land"

In February 2013, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (Democrat-Oregon) said:

"We've got millions of people - working-class, middle-class people - who
are going to be pushed into a regulatory health coverage no man's land.
They are unable to afford the family coverage through their employer and
ineligible for the subsidy that could be used by dependents on the
exchange."

303) "Unfairly" forced federal lawmakers and their aides to participate in
the same health care reform as everyone else

In June 2013, U.S. Congressman John Larson (Democrat-Connecticut) said
that it is "not fair" to force federal lawmakers and their aides to
participate in the same health care reform as everyone else.

304) Encouraged SEIU union to go on strike

The Service Employees International Union supported Obama in both
elections, and also supported the passage of Obamacare.

However, in September 2013, member of the Chicago chapter of the SEIU went
on strike over jobs cuts that were caused by Obamacare.

305) Removed promise of "free" health care from Obamacare website

In September 2013, the Obamacare website removed its promise of "free"
health care.

306) Exposed the hypocrisy of MSNBC host Ed Schultz

After Obamacare was passed, MSNBC host Ed Schultz praised it almost every
day for three years. However, on Sepotember 26, 2013, just five days
before the Obamacare exchanges were to begin, Schultz said that unions
should be exempt from it.

307) Punished people who were unable to accurately predict their income a
year in advance

Obamacare requires people to predict their income a year in advance. If
their prediction is wrong, they can be punished by the IRS.

308) Created Obamacare website where less than 1% of the people who
visited on its first day actually registered for Obamacare

U.S. Congressman Congressman Jim Himes (Democrat-Connecticut) said that
out of the 28,000 people from Connecticut who had visited the Obamacare
website on its first day, only 167 had actually signed up for Obamacare.

309) Obama administration falsely said it did not know how many people had
enrolled in Obamacare

On October 3, 2013, the third day that the Obamacare website was in
operation, White House spokesman Jay Carney said that "7 million" people
had visited the Obamacare website so far. However, when asked how many of
those people had actually enrolled in Obamacare, he said, "We don't have
that data."

Carney was lying. Of course the Obama administration had that data. CBS
News was able to get a copy of that data, and reported that during the
first 24 hours after the Obamacare website went online, only six people
had used the website to enroll in Obamacare.

310) Broke promise that Obamacare "navigators" would not go door to door

On October 1, 2013, the very first day that Obamacare registration was
taking place, the Obama administration broke its promise that Obamacare
"navigators" would not go door to door.

311) Created Obamacare website where reporters from various news agencies
were unable to register on its first day

On October 1, 2013, a CNN reporter was unable to register at the Obamacare
website.

On October 1, 2013, an MSNBC reporter was unable to register at the
Obamacare website.

On October 1, 2013, a reporter from the Tennessean was unable to register
at the Obamacare website.

312) Created Obamacare phone line that was answered by "navigators" who
had no training

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. The Obama administration
had three and a half years to hire and train the "navigators" who answer
the Obamacare phone line.

However, on October 1, 2013, one of the "navigators" who answered the
Obamacare phone line said "We have not been trained yet."

313) Created Obamacare website that can't handle as much traffic as a
website which is run by one guy in his pajamas from his apartment

drudgereport.com is run by Matt Drudge, who runs the website in his
pajamas from his apartment. I've visited his website just about every day
since the late 20th century. It runs very well. His website has gotten as
many as 45 million hits per day.

On the first day of the Obamacare website, it had 5 million visitors. It
could not handle that amount of traffic.

314) Created Obamacare phone line where "navigators" told people to go to
a building that turned out to be empty

Obamacare "navigators" who answered the Obamacare phone line told people
to go to a building that turned out to be empty.

315) Created Obamacare phone line with a number that when spelled out is
"F*** YO"

When spelled out, the Obamacare phone number is "F*** YO."

This is not a complaint on my part. On the contrary, I consider this to be
truth in advertising. For once, the Obama administration is telling us the
truth about Obamacare.

316) Tried to censor a book about the "Fast and Furious" scandal

In October 2013, the ACLU announced that it would be defending John
Dodson's first amendment right to free speech, against the Obama
administration, which was trying to prevent Dodson from publishing a book
about Obama's "Fast and Furious" scandal.

317) Michelle Obama said she could not tweet as often after the federal
shutdown caused layoffs of her 16 "assistants," who have salaries as high
as $172,200

Michelle Obama has 16 taxpayer funded "assistants," whose salaries are as
high as $172,200.

During the government shutdown in October 2013, her 16 "assistants" were
laid off, and her twitter account said:

"Due to Congress's failure to pass legislation to fund the government,
updates to this account will be limited."

318) Hypocritically blocked Texas's voter ID law for being "racist"

In March 2012, Obama's Justice Department blocked Texas's voter ID law,
claiming that it was "racist."

However, the very same Obama Justice Department that did this, also
requires photo ID for everyone who enters it. In this video, beginning at
2:39, we see that a security guard at Obama's Justice Department requires
photo ID for everyone who enters.

319) Falsely said that his negotiating over the debt ceiling would be
unprecedented

In October 2013, Obama falsely said that his negotiating over the debt
ceiling would be unprecedented.

320) Blocked access to outdoor memorials and monuments during the
government shutdown, even though it would have been cheaper to leave them
open

During the government shutdown in October 2013, Obama shut down the
Vietnam Memorial, despite the fact that it would have been cheaper to
leave it open.

Obama also shut down the World War II Memorial. Obama used metal fences
and yellow police tape to block the entrances.

Obama put up orange cones to prevent drivers from stopping and taking
pictures of Mount Rushmore.

Obama put up yellow police tape in front of the Lincoln Memorial to
prevent people from entering.

During previous government shutdowns, these memorials and monuments had
remained open.

Since it's more expensive to close these outdoor memorials and monuments
than it is to leave them open, I have to wonder what Obama's reason was
for shutting them down.

321) Kicked people out of their privately owned vacation homes on federal
land during government shutdown

During the government shutdown in October 2013, Obama forced people to
leave their privately owned vacation homes along Lake Mead. The privately
owned homes were situated on land owned by the federal government. All of
the homes in question were vacation homes, not primary residences, so no
one was forced into homelessness. Nevertheless, there was no legitimate
justification for Obama to do this.

322) Forced private businesses on federal land to close during government
shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama forced privately owned
marinas, restaurants, inns, and concessions stands which were situated on
federal land to close. Although the Obama administration claimed that this
was done because the government did not have enough money to allow them to
stay open, the government actually spent extra money to have federal
guards prevent people from entering these private businesses.

323) Kept one of his favorite golf courses open during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, while Obama was busying
closing federal parks, monuments, and memorials, he made one exception -
he allowed one of his favorite golf courses to stay open.

324) Spent $98,670 to build an outhouse

In September 2013, the Obama administration spent $98,670 to build an
outhouse at the Swede Park Trail Head in Alaska.

325) Engages in "a sign of leadership failure"

In March 2006, Senator Obama said:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is
a sign of leadership failure."

However, in September 2013, President Obama argued in favor of raising the
debt ceiling.

326) Used armed guards to imprison law abiding tourists inside a locked
building at Yellowstone National Park

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama used armed guards to
imprison law abiding tourists inside a locked building at Yellowstone
National Park.

327) Illegally denied death benefits to the families of dead U.S. soldiers

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama illegally denied death
benefits to the families of dead U.S. soldiers. Prior to the government
shutdown, the funding for these death benefits had already been authorized
by law.

328) Spent $47,174 on a mechanical bull during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, while Obama was busy closing
parks, memorials, and monuments, and denying death benefits to the
families of dead U.S. military personnel, he did manage to spend $47,174
on a mechanical bull.

329) Seized $35,000 from a law abiding owner of a grocery store without
any warning , explanation, or charges

For 30 years, Terry Dehko has been legally operating a grocery store near
Detroit, Michigan. In January 2013, the Obama administration seized
$35,000 from Dehko's bank account, without giving any warning or
explanation, and without charging Dehko with any crime.

330) Ran "the most closed, control-freak administration I've ever
covered"

For the past 20 years, David Sanger has been a New York Times reporter
stationed in Washington, D.C. In October 2013, he said:

"This is the most closed, control-freak administration I've ever covered."

331) Fined a runner $100 for running in Valley Forge

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
fined a runner $100 for running in Valley Forge.

332) Ordered Claude Moore Colonial Farm to shut down, even though it was
privately funded

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
ordered Claude Moore Colonial Farm to shut down, even though it was
privately funded.

333) Ordered a volunteer to stop cleaning up the National Mall

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
ordered Chris Cox, a volunteer, to stop cleaning up the National Mall.

334) Told students to remove two amendments from the "outdated" Bill of
Rights

As part of Obama's "Common Core" education program, students in a sixth-
grade history class in Bryant, Arkansas, were told to removed two
amendments from the "outdated" Bill of Rights.

335) Ordered people to appear in federal court because they had entered
the Grand Canyon

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
ordered people to appear in federal court because they had entered the
Grand Canyon.

336) Ordered volunteers to stop bringing therapy dogs to visit sick
children in the hospital

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
ordered volunteers to stop bringing therapy dogs to visit sick children in
the hospital.

337) Had veterans arrested for visiting the Vietnam Memorial

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama had veterans arrested
for visiting the Vietnam Memorial

338) A "lead navigator" for Obamacare falsely told applicants that they
must provide their credit score

In October 2013, Anne Packham, a "lead navigator" for Obamacare, falsely
told applicants that they had to provide their credit score.

339) Created Obamacare website which "looks like nobody tested it"

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. He had three and a half
years to create and test the Obamacare website.

However, in October 2013, CBS News quoted Luke Chung, an online database
programmer who supports Obamacare, as saying the following about the
Obamacare website:

"It wasn't designed well, it wasn't implemented well, and it looks like
nobody tested it... It's not even close. It's not even ready for beta
testing for my book. I would be ashamed and embarrassed if my organization
delivered something like that."

340) Obamacare's first publicized "enrollee" turned out to be a Democratic
activist who had not actually enrolled in Obamacare

After the Obamacare website went online, the media tried and tried to find
someone who had actually enrolled, but could not find anyone, because the
website was so badly designed.

After much searching, they finally reported that they had found someone -
a 21-year-old guy from Georgia named Chad Henderson.

On October 3, 2013, the Washington Post reported:

Meet Chad Henderson, the Obamacare enrollee tons of reporters are calling

Ask and, apparently, you shall receive.

Just moments after writing a blog post Thursday morning, about the lack of
information on Obamacare enrollees, Enroll America reached out with
contact information for Chad Henderson, a 21-year-old in Georgia who had
successfully enrolled in coverage on the federal marketplace.

It was a little difficult to reach Henderson, mostly because so many other
reporters wanted to talk to him. "I'm supposed to talk to the Chattanooga
Times Free Press in a half hour," Henderson said. "And The Wall Street
Journal is supposed to call."

Luckily, Henderson managed to squeeze me in for a few minutes. He's a
student at Chattanooga State University who lives across the state border
in Flintstone, Ga.

Politico reported:

Rare health exchange enrollee gets 15 minutes of Obamacare fame

Chad Henderson, a college student who is one of the few people to have
signed up for health insurance on a federal exchange, is having his 15
minutes of Obamacare fame.

But wait.

It turns out that Henderson had not actually enrolled in Obamcare.

In addition, Henderson is actually a member of Organizing for Action, the
organization that ran Obama's election campaign.

341) Said it's "unfair" to ask for Obamacare enrollment numbers just one
week after Obamacare website went online

U.S. Congressional reperestentative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Democrat-
Florida) is the chairperson for the Democratic National Committee. When a
reporter asked her how many people had enrolled in Obamacare during its
first week, she said it was "unfair" to ask that question so early.

When a new movie comes out, we know how many people bought tickets in the
first week. When a new video game, or a new CD, or a new book comes out,
we know how many people bought it in the first week.

But when a news reporter asks "the most transparent administration in
history" how many people signed up for its new health care program during
its first week, we are told that such a question is "unfair."

342) Declined to idenifty the private contractors who screwed up the
Obamacare website

When the New York Times asked the Obama administration to identify the
private contractors who had screwed up the Obamacare website, the Obama
administration refused to answer.

343) Refused to answer why businesses, but not individuals, were able to
delay the Obamacare mandate for a year

When Jon Stewart asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen
Sebelius why businesses, but not individuals, were able to delay the
Obamacare mandate for a year, Sebelius refused to answer.

344) Gave people Obamacare "rate shock"

Many news sources, including the Washington Post, the Christian Science
Monitor, Investor's Business Daily, the Daily Caller, CBS News, Forbes,
CNN, the San Jose Mercury News, and the San Francisco Chronicle, have
been reporting on something called Obamacare "rate shock."

For example, Tom Waschura, a self employed engineer who lives in Portola
Valley, California, said that he supports Obamacare, and that he voted for
Obama in both elections.

However, on October 5, 2013, Waschura said:

"I was laughing at Boehner - until the mail came today."

"I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can
understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of
my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or
retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

This next quote is one of the funniest things that I've heard anyone say
about Obamacare so far. It comes from Cindy Vinson, a retired teacher from
San Jose, California, who said that she supports Obamacare, and that she
voted for Obama in both elections. This is what she said in October 2013,
after she found out that Obamacare would be causing her insurance premium
to increase:

"Of course, I want people to have health care. I just didn't realize I
would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."

CNN reported:

One North Carolina reader was upset to learn her current $267 a month plan
was being canceled and the cheapest option on the exchange would cost her
family $750 a month. They don't qualify for a subsidy.

"Obamacare is a nightmare for my family," she wrote.

345) Made sure that Obamacare "rate shock" did not happen until after the
2012 election

Obamacare was deliberately written so that Obamacare "rate shock" would
not occur until after the 2012 election.

On October 9, 2013, Obama's approval rating was only 37%. Obamacare "rate
shock" was a significant factor in this low approval rating. If Obamacare
"rate shock" had happened in October 2012 instead of in October 2013, it's
highly unlikley that Obama would have won the 2012 election.

346) Had the Obamacare website built by cronies instead of by qualified
programmers

Obama had the Obamacare website built by cronies instead of by qualified
programmers.

347) Used 55 different contractors to build the Obamacare website

Instead of choosing just one contractor or a few contractors who could
properly build the Obamacare website, Obama decided to spread the work out
over 55 different contractors, which made it much harder to get all the
parts to run together properly.

348) Waited until after the 2012 election to issue major rules for the
Obamacare website

Obama signed the Obamacare law in March 2010. The law requires the online
exchanges to be up and running by October 2013. So Obama had three and a
half years to get the website ready.

However, Obama waited until after the 2012 election to release some of the
major rules for how the website was supposed to be designed. So instead of
having three and a half years to get the website ready, Obama made sure
the programmers had less than one year.

349) New York Times reporter was never able to log in to Obamamacare
website during more than 40 attempts over 11 days

During more than 40 attempts to log in to the Obamacare website over a
period of 11 days beginning on October 1, 2013, a New York Times reported
was never able to log in.

350) Hired illegal immigrant as Obamacare "navigator"

Obama hired an illegal immigrant to work as an Obamacare "navigator."

351) Hired someone with an outstanding arrest warrant as Obamacare
"navigator"

Obama hired someone with an outstanding arrest warrant to work as an
Obamacare "navigator."

352) IRS collected taxes but did not send out refunds during government
shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the IRS collected taxes but
did not send out tax refunds.

353) Prevented Catholic volunteers from practicing their religion at
military bases during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration
prevented Catholic volunteers from practicing their religion on military
bases.

354) Spent more than $500 million to build unusable Obamacare website

Obama spent more than $500 million of taxpayers' money to build the
unusable Obamacare website.

355) Refused to fire Kathleen Sebelius, even after the failure of the
Obamacare website

Even after the Obamacare website failed, Obama still refused to fire
Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

356) There is "no reasonable expectation of privacy" at Obamacare website

The source code for the Obamacare website states:

"You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication
or data transiting or stored on this information system. At any time, and
for any lawful Government purpose, the government may monitor, intercept,
and search and seize any communication or data transiting or stored on
this information system. Any communication or data transiting or stored on
this information system may be disclosed or used for any lawful Government
purpose."

357) Requires users to reveal private info before shopping at Obamacare
website

Legitimate shopping websites such as amazon.com allow users to browse
merchandise without having to enter their personal information. However,
the Obamacare website requires users to enter their name, social security
number, and other personal information before they are allowed to look at
the insurance plans.

358) Michelle Obama refused to pick vegetables from her own garden without
federal help

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Michelle Obama decided to
avoid picking her own vegetables from her own garden, and instead, allowed
them to rot.

Reuters reported:

In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the
vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes - a favorite of
President Barack Obama - have become worm food.

It's another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and
the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love.

359) The Obamacare website is "a hacker's wet dream"

John McAfee, the computer programmer who founded McAfee, Inc., said the
Obamacare website is "a hacker's wet dream."

360) Caused a leukemia patient to lose his insurance

Michael Cerpok lives in Fountain Hills, Arizona. He has leukemia.

In 2012, his health care cost more than $350,000. But because he had
insurance, he only had to pay $4,500 of that amount.

However, in October 2013, his insurance company sent him a letter which
said that because of Obamacare, his insurance policy would be canceled on
January 1, 2014.

361) Added 11 million words of regulations to Obamacare, which is 30 times
as many words as the law itself

The regulations that Obama addded to Obamacare after he signed it are 11
million words long. That's 30 times as many words as the actual Obamacare
law that Obama signed in March 2010. Because Obama added these 11 million
words without approval from Congress, his actions are illegal.

362) Threatened to arrest people for telling jokes

In October 2013, the Obama administration announced the following on
loudspeakers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas:

"Inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your
arrest."

363) Changed Obamacare registration deadline at the last minute

For three and a half years, the Obama administration repeatedly said that
people had to register for Obamacare by March 31, 2014.

However, in October 2013, the Obama administration changed that deadline
to February 14, 2014.

364) Ignored the successful methods of eHealthInsurance.com

The website eHealthInsurance.com has been successfully selling health
insurance since 1998. The website is simple and easy to use.

However, when Obama created the Obamacare website, he chose to ignore the
successful methods that are used by eHealthInsurance.com.

365) For two weeks, CNN reporter was never able to log in to Obamacare

In October 2013 it was reported that the Obama administration had paid
$500 per gallon for gasoline.

367) Referred people to uncertified Obamacare "navigagtors" and
"assisters"

In October 2013, the Obamacare website referred people to uncertified
"navigagtors" and "assisters."

368) While the Obamacare website was not working, 700 counterfeit
Obamacare websites were working

It's not Obama's fault that criminals created 700 counterfeit Obamacare
websites. However, it is interesting to note that while the Obamacare
website was not working, those 700 counterfeit websites were working.

369) Asked Blue Cross Blue Shield not to release Obamacare exchange
numbers

On October 22, 2013, three weeks after the failed Obamacare website went
online, the Obama administration asked Blue Cross Blue Shield not to
release information on the number of people who had signed up for their
policies through the Obamacare website.

370) 100% of Senate Democrats up for reelection planned to support a delay

1,067-foot long U.S. Navy aircraft carrier Forrestal for scrap metal for
one cent, to a Texas company called All Star Metals.

372) Obamacare website gave wrong prices

In October 2013, CBS News reported:

A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance.

In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the
website.

Industry executives CBS News spoke with could not believe the government
is providing these estimates, which they said were useless and could
easily mislead consumers. They also said that the website repeatedly
states the actual prices could be lower, but it makes no mention that they
could be higher.

373) Obamacare website sent false information to insurance companies

In October 2013, it was reported that the Obamacare website was sending
false information to insurance companies

374) Threatened to punish people for not buying health insurance from a
website that wasn't even working

The Obama administration threatened to impose tax penalties on people who
did not buy health insurance from the Obamacare website, even though the
website was not working.

375) In the first two weeks of the Obamacare website, "no more than 5,000?
enrollees had successfully completed the enrollment process

Two weeks after the Obamacare website went online, it was reported that
"no more than 5,000? enrollees had successfully completed the enrollment
process.

376) Falsely said "No one is more frustrated than I am" regarding the
Obamacare website

On October 21, 2013, regarding the failure of the Obamacare website, Obama
said:

"No one is more frustrated than I am."

Obama has absolutely no right to be "frustrated" about any of the
Obamacare webstie's problems, because he is the person who chose to cause
those problems in the first place.

It was Obama who signed a 2,600 page law that he hadn't read.

It was Obama who added an additional 20,000 pages of regulations that he
hadn't read to Obamacare without Congressional approval.

It was Obama who chose to hire cronies instead of competent programmers to
create the Obamacare website.

It was Obama who waited until after the 2012 election to issue some of the
main rules for the Obamacare website, which gave the programmers less than
one year to comply with those rules, instead of the three and half years
they would have had if Obama hadn't waited.

It was Obama who falsely said that the price of annual family insurance
premiums would fall by $2,500.

It was Obama who falsely told people that they could keep their insurance
if they were happy with it.

It was Obama who gave employers a huge financial incentive to switch their
full time employees to a part time, 29 hour week.

It was Obama who refused to fire Secretary of Health and Human Services
Kathleen Sebelius after the Obamacare website failed.

Every thing that's bad about the Obamacare website is the direct result of
choices that Obama made.

Obama has no right to be "frustrated" at the website's failure.

You want to know the people who really do have the right to be
"frustrated" at Obamacare's problems? It's the people who have opposed
Obamacare from the start. It's the people who predicted that these
problems would happen. It's the people who called the bluff from the very
start on Obama's many lies about Obamacare. These are the people who have
the right to be "frustrated" at Obamacare's problems.

And yet somehow, not only does Obama falsely say that he is "frustrated,"
but he also falsely says that he is more frustrated than anyone else.

The people who are truly "frustrated" are the millions of people who were
against Obamacare but are now being forced to participate in it.

Obama owns this - he created it. He has no right to be "frustrated" about
it.

377) Obamacare website was built using 10-year-old technology

The Obamacare website was built using 10-year-old technology.

378) Required note from doctor for a mother to feed her own child

from home if there is a medical condition meriting a specific diet, along
with a physicians note to that regard.

I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions concerning
this matter, please contact [name redacted], the Health Coordinator for
Federal Programs Preschool at [number redacted].

Health and Human Services, calls the Obamacare website "the easiest, most

382) Obamacare website had between 10 and 20 times as many lines of code
as it should have had

The Obamacare website has 500 million lines of code.

Dave Kennedy, the CEO of information-security company Trusted Sec, said
that a website for a project on the scale of Obamacare should actually
have between 25 million and 50 million lines of code.

383) Jared Polis opposes delaying Obamacare's individual mandate for the
entire country, but favors such a delay for his own district

U.S. Congressional representative Jared Polis (Democrat-Colorado) voted
against delaying Obamacare's individual mandate for the entire country,
but later requested such a delay for his own district.

When Polis requested a special delay for his own district, he said:

"We will be encouraging a waiver. It will be difficult for Summit County
residents to become insured. For the vast majority, it's too high a price
to pay."

384) Gave a no-bid contract to CGI Federal to build the Obamacare website

Obama gave a no-bid contract to CGI Federal to build the Obamacare
website.

Obama broke his promise to have a Spanish version of the Obamacare website
up and running by October 1, 2013.

and running by "mid October" 2013

website up running by October 1, 2013, his administration made a new
promise to have it up and running by "mid-October." However, Obama broke
that promise too - as of October 25, 2013, the Spanish version of the
website was still not up and running.

387) Fired an Obamcare phone operator for truthfully answering a caller's
question

In October 2013, a caller to the Obama phone line asked:

"Have you ever gotten anyone who really likes it yet?"

The phone operator, a woman named Earline Davis, answered:

"Um, not really."

Davis was fired for her answer.

388) Gave contract for Obamacare website to Michelle Obama's college
classmate

Instead of having the Obamacare website built by someone who was
qualified, Obama had it built by CGI Federal, a company that was run by
Toni Townes-Whitley, who attended Princeton University with Michelle
Obama.

389) Spent $634 million for Obamacare website as of October 1, 2013, even
though it was only supposed to cost $94 million

The Obamacare website was originally supposed to cost $94 million.
However, when it went online on October 1, 2013, it had already cost $634
million.

390) New York Times writer gave Obama a grade of 'F' for rollout of
Obamacare website

On October 25, 2013, New York Times writer Uwe E. Reinhardt wrote:

"... who exactly should be assigned the F for the troubled rollout of
HealthCare.gov?"

"Once elected, a president becomes chief executive of a giant federal
enterprise. Anyone familiar with corporate management would have thought
that for as ambitious and technically a complex project as the initial
rollout of HealthCare.gov - so important to many uninsured Americans and
so politically important to the White House - the chief executive would
have remained in very close touch with the management team overseeing the
project and thus would have been briefed daily or at least weekly on the
progress of the project and especially on any problems with it."

"... the blame for the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov goes to its
entire management team, to be sure, but primarily to the chief executive
on top of that project. In my view, not only the proverbial buck stops on
the chief executive's desk, but, for the management of this particular
project, the grade of F goes there as well."

391) Said "Don't believe what you've heard" regarding criticism of
Obamacare

On October 25, 2013, regarding the various criticisms of Obamacare, Health
and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius said:

"Don't believe what you've heard."

In other words, the Obama administration says we shouldn't believe the
Washington Post, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle,
Associated Press, Reuters, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, Politico,
the Wall St. Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Investor's Business
Daily, Forbes, the BBC, Huffington Post, the Nation, Mother Jones, or New
Republic.

392) Closed a public beach and prevented a private charity from raising
money for art in the schools

For the past 30 years, a privately run charity in San Francisco called
Leap has had a charity event where they build sand castles to raise money
to support art in the schools. In 2012, this contest raised more than
$250,000 for art in the schools.

However, during the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama closed the
public beach where the charity event was to take place, and prevented it
from happening.

393) Monitored phone calls of 35 world leaders

In October 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had
monitored the phone calls of 35 world leaders.

394) Refused to answer question about whether or not Obama administration
had monitored Angela Merkel's phone

In October 2013, the New York Times wrote:

... yesterday, Der Spiegel reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel
asked Mr. Obama "for a thorough explanation of serious indications that
U.S. intelligence agencies had declared her private mobile phone to be a
target in their operations."

The White House press secretary, Jay Carney said, "The president assured
[Merkel] that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the
communications" of the chancellor." Please note: IS not monitoring and
WILL NOT monitor. The allegation, unaddressed, was that the United States
HAD been monitoring her calls (until it was caught in the act).

395) Hacked the email of Mexican presidential candidate

In October 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had hacked
the email account of Mexican presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto,
who later won the election.

396) Illegally seized documents from reporter Audrey Hudson

Audrey Hudson is a reporter who lives in Shady Side, Maryland. In 1986,
her husband, Paul Flanagan, was convicted of resisting arrest. Because of
this, he is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm.

In August 2013, federal agents entered their home, with a warrant that
specifically said they were allowed to search for firearms. However, the
federal agents illegally seized documents that belonged to Hudson, which
were not listed on the warrant.

treatment for heroin addiction

could not even handle "just a few hundred people" at the same time.

400) Falsely blamed the Obamacare webstie's problems on too much traffic

The Obama administration blamed the problems of the Obamacare website on
too much traffic.

However, the Washington Post reported that during testing, the Obamacare
website could not even handle "just a few hundred people" at the same
time.

In addition, CBS News quoted Luke Chung, an online database programmer who
supports Obamacare, as saying the following about the Obamacare website:

"It wasn't designed well, it wasn't implemented well, and it looks like
nobody tested it... It's not even close. It's not even ready for beta
testing for my book. I would be ashamed and embarrassed if my organization
delivered something like that."

who fabricated facts with the regularity of Barack Obama.
I agree.

601) Illegally gave Obamacare subsidies to people who bought insurance
from somewhere other than the Obamacare website

As it was passed by Congress, Obamacare only gives subsidies to people who
buy insurance at the Obamacare website. However, in February 2014, Obama
allowed people who bought insurance from somewhere other than the
Obamacare website to get these subsidies. Because Obama made this change
without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

602) An estimated 65% of small businesses that already had insurance will
pay higher premiums because of Obamacare

In February 2014, it was reported that an estimated 65% of small
businesses that already had insurance would pay higher premiums because of
Obamacare.

603) Allowed anti-gay Muslim preacher who wants homosexuals to be executed
into the U.S. to spread his message to mosques in 17 U.S. cities

Sheikh Mohammad Rateb al-Nabulsi is a Muslim preacher from Syria who has
called for homosexuals to be executed. In March 2014, Obama gave him a
visa so he could spread his message to mosques in 17 U.S. cities.

604) Illegally gave unions an exemption from Obamacare's "reinsurance" tax

Obamacare includes a so-called "reinsurance" tax. In March 2014, Obama
gave unions an exemption from this tax. This was illegal for two reasons.
First, Obama made this change without approval from Congress. And second,
the Constitution requires that laws apply equally to everyone.

605) Illegally delayed Obamacare's minimum standards for certain insurance
policies until after the 2016 election

Obamacare's minimum standards for insurance policies were required to take

illegal.

606) Illegally extended Obamacare's open enrollment period for 2015

premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less
comprehensive coverage."

restaurant industries. It supported Obama in both elections.

In March 2014, Unite Here said:

"If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families
onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service
industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their
pay to buy similar coverage."

"... the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of
hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage."

"Obamacare will cost our members the equivalent of a significant pay cut
to keep their hard-won benefits."

"... it will inevitably lead to the destruction of the health care plans
we were promised we could keep."

608) Doctor who survived breast cancer said "Under Obamacare, I'd be
dead."

Dr. Katherine Albrecht lives in Nashua, New Hampshire. After she was
diagnosed with breast cancer, doctors at her local hospital told her there
was nothing they could do for her. So, she went to experts at the Dana
Farber Cancer Center in Boston, Massachusettes, who saved her life. She
later received follow up care at Cornell Breast Cancer Center in New York
City. Her insurance paid for her treatment at both of these out-of-state
facilities.

Afterward, her insurance policy was canceled, because it did not meet
Obamacare's minimum requirements.

Her new, Obamacare-compliant policy does not cover treatment in Boston,
New York, or any other out-of-state medical facility.

She said of this:

"Under Obamacare, I'd be dead."

609) Tried to censor the Center for American Progress

worse than during the previous years of his presidency.

to lose coverage for her multiple sclerosis medicine, and called Obama a
"used-car salesman"

In March 2014, Democratic Underground's WilliamPitt wrote: (I have
redacted the vulgar language from the original)

What I've learned about the Affordable Care Act

What I've learned after a three-month war with these fiends: the ACA says
the insurance companies cannot deny coverage to those with pre-existing
conditions, which is true as far as it goes. But they can deny coverage
for the life-saving medications necessary to treat those conditions. The
insurance company I signed up with through the ACA exchange just denied
coverage of my wife's multiple sclerosis medication. We're "covered," to
the tune of $700 a month... just not for what she really needs.

A cozy loophole, that.

F*** you, insurance industry.

F*** you, Mr. President, you piece of s*** used-car salesman.

From my heart and soul, f*** you.

623) More than one third of people who receive Obamacare subsidies will

release of politically sensitive documents

after his Obamacare policy had taken effect

Larry Basich lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. He started paying his Obamacare
premiums in November 2013, for coverage that was supposed to start on
January 1, 2014. He paid his premiums every month. However, in March 2014,

627) Obama Motors refused to recall defective cars that killed 12 people

In July 2009, Obama had the government take 60.8% ownership of General
Motors.

In December 2013, ownership of Obama Motors was returned to the private
sector.

In March 2014, it was reported that during the time that Obama had been in
charge of Obama Motors, he refused to recall defective cars that had
killed 12 people. This is very unusual, because typical car recalls happen
before anyone dies.

628) Proposed illegally building skyscrapers out of wood

without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

634) Obamacare author said it will cause most employers to stop offering
insurance

In March 2014, the New York Times reported:

Why Employers Will Stop Offering Health Insurance

Here's a prediction: By 2025, "fewer than 20 percent of workers in the
private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health
insurance." The source of this claim? Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, in his just-
published book, "Reinventing American Health Care."

Dr. Emanuel is an accomplished oncologist, medical ethicist and academic
(and contributing opinion writer to The New York Times). And, of course,
he's no stranger to politics: He helped craft the Affordable Care Act as a
health policy adviser to the Obama administration, when his brother, Rahm,
now the mayor of Chicago, was chief of staff.

... he argues, the so-called Cadillac tax on especially generous health
plans, set to take effect in 2018, will help pave the way by discouraging
companies from offering those plans.

654) Obama voters in San Francsico area complained that Obamacare does not
actually give them access to a doctor

656) Illegally rounded up wild horses so they could be sent to a
slaughterhouse, and lied about the reason why

wild.

657) Threatened to veto a bill that would change Obamacare's defintion of
"full time" from 30 hours per week to 40

Obamacare's employer mandate only applies to "full time" employees, which
Obamacare defines as those who work at least 30 hours per week. This has
encouraged many employers to reduce their employees' weekly hours to 29.
In response to this, in April 2014, the U.S. House of Representatives
passed a bill that redefines Obamacare's definition of "full time" work to
40 hours per week. Obama threatened to veto this proposal.

658) Forced New Jersey to eliminate its FamilyCare Advantage health care

In an April 2014 article in Ebony magazine, Danielle Kimberly wrote:

As a proud new beneficiary of the Affordable Health Care Act, I'd like to
report that I am doctorless. Ninety-six. Ninety-six is the number of soul
crushing rejections that greeted me as I attempted to find one. It's the
number of physicians whose secretaries feigned empathy while rehearsing
the "I'm so sorry" line before curtly hanging up.

661) Ann Coulter said her friend's sister died because of Obamacare

In February 2014, Ann Coulter said that her friend's sister died because

canceled because of Obamacare.

662) Obama ad falsely said women get paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing
the "same work" as men

In June 2012, an Obama ad said:

"President Obama knows that women being paid 77 cents on the dollar for
doing the same work as men isn't just unfair, it hurts families."

While women do indeed get paid 77 cents for every dollar that a man gets,
it is not for the "same work." The Huffington Post reported that the claim
that women get paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the "same work" as
men is wrong: the comparison is not for the "same work," the comparison
does not adjust for education, job, experience, hours worked per week,
etc., and when you do adjust for those things, the gap disappears. People
who claim that the gap exists count a male lawyer and a female librarian
as having the "same" job, even though lawyers earn far more than
librarians.

663) Tea party donors were audited by the IRS at ten times the rate of the
general population

employees.

665) Obamacare customers filed class action lawsuit because even though
they had paid their premiums, they did not receive the coverage that they

In 2008, Obama said:

"The biggest problems we're facing right now have to do with George Bush
trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go
through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reverse when I'm
president of the United States of America."

However, as of February 2014, Obama had broken that promise 168 times.

668) Said "Earth Day is about taking action" and then burned more than

670) Removed 1.5 million medical orders from waiting lists at Veterans
Administration hospitals without actually providing any medical care

In May 2014, the Washington Examiner reported:

More than 1.5 million medical orders were canceled by the Department of
Veterans Affairs without any guarantee the patients received the treatment
or tests they needed, the Washington Examiner has found.

Since May 2013, veterans' medical centers nationwide have been under
pressure to clear out 2 million backlogged orders for patient care or
services.

They were given wide latitude to cancel unfilled appointments more than 90
days old. By April 2014, the backlog of what the agency calls "unresolved
consults" was down to about 450,000.

What happened to other 1.5 million appointments is something that no one,
including top officials at the veterans' agency, can answer.

In May 2014, CNN reported:

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix
Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret
waiting list.

The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans
Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600
sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a
recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources.

671) Falsely said that he found out about long waiting lists at Veterans
Administration hospitals on the news in 2014

In May 2014, the Obama administration said that it had just found out
about the long waiting lists at Veterans Administration hospitals on the
news.

credit checks on its employees, which were described as being "the same
type of background check that the EEOC itself uses."

674) Defended a Muslim airline that illegally bans Israeli Jews from
flights that originate in the U.S.

In 2013, a passenger who wanted to fly from New York to London on Kuwait
Airways was illegally rejected by the airline for being an Israeli Jew.
The passenger filed a discrimination complaint with the Obama
administration. The Obama administration dismissed the complaint, claiming
that the airline was subject to Kuwaiti law, and not U.S. law, even though
the flight originated in the U.S.

675) Illegally seized money from the bank account of a law abiding grocery
store

Terry Dehko is a law abiding citizen who owns a grocery store in Fraser,
Michigan. 35% of the store's sales are done in cash. The store regularly
deposits this cash into a bank account. In January 2013, the Obama
administration illegally seized the contents of the store's bank account.

676) Illegally pressured banks to close the accounts of porn stars

In May 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally
pressured banks to close the accounts of porn stars.

677) Huffington Post said Obamacare will leave 40 million Americans
uninsured

In February 2014, the Huffington Post reported that Obamacare would leave
40 million Americans uninsured.

678) Obamacare is illegal because it originated in the Senate instead of
in the House

The Obama administration argued in front of the Supreme Court that the
Obamacare mandate was a tax.

The U.S. Constitution requires all tax bills to originate in the House,
but Obamacare originated in the Senate.

679) Moved control of the Census Bureau from the commerce secretary to the
White House

In March 2009, Obama moved control of the Census Bureau from the commerce
secretary to the White House. Larry Sabato, a professor at the University
of Virginia, said of this:

"The last thing the census needs is for any hard-bitten partisan (either a
Karl Rove or a Rahm Emanuel) to manipulate these critical numbers...
Partisans have a natural impulse to tilt the playing field in their favor,
and this has to be resisted."

680) Changed questions in the census to falsely inflate the number of
people who gained insurance from Obamacare

In April 2014, the New York Times reported:

Census Survey Revisions Mask Health Law Effects

The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for
more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that
it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama's health
care law in the next report, due this fall...

... the new questions are so different that the findings will not be
comparable...

An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire
included a "total revision to health insurance questions" and, in a test
last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials
said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable
to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey
instrument.

"We are expecting much lower numbers just because of the questions and how
they are asked," said Brett J. O'Hara, chief of the health statistics
branch at the Census Bureau.

681) Illegally created a new Obamacare rule and penalty without approval
from Congress

In May 2014, the New York Times reported:

Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government
by sending their employees to a health insurance exchange with a tax-free
contribution of cash to help pay premiums, but the Obama administration
has squelched the idea in a new ruling. Such arrangements do not satisfy
the health care law, the administration said, and employers may be subject
to a tax penalty of $100 a day - or $36,500 a year - for each employee who
goes into the individual marketplace.

Obama's actions here are illegal. There is nothing in Obamacare that gives
Obama or the IRS the power to prohibit employers from dumping employees
onto Obamacare exchanges, or for fining them $100 a day per employee for
doing so. The President does not have the legal authority to change the
law without those changes first being approved by Congress.

682) Obamacare forced colon cancer survivor Janet Grigg to lose her
doctor. Her new Obamacare policy covers zero doctors within a 400 mile
radius of her home.

Janet Grigg lives in Oklahoma and is a survivor of colon cancer. Obamacare
caused her to lose coverage for her doctor. Her new Obamacare policy
covers zero doctors within a 400 mile radius of her home. You can see a
video of her at


683) Paid $150 per gallon for green jet fuel

In May 2014, it was reported that the Pentagon had paid $150 per gallon
for green jet fuel.

684) Gave $20 million loan to an Obama donor and "very good friend" of Joe
Biden to open a Porsche dealership in Ukraine

In May 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had given a $20
million loan to John Hynanksy to open a Porsche dealership in Ukraine.
Vice President Joe Biden has referred to Hynanksy as "my very good
friend." Hynanksy has donated to Obama's campaign.

685) Obama broke the same law that Martha Stewart had gone to prison for
breaking

Solyndra's shareholders and executives made substantial donations to
Obama's campaign, the company spent a large sum of money on lobbying the
Obama administration, and its executives had many meetings with Obama
White House officials. Afterward, Obama gave $535 million of taxpayers'
money to Solyndra. Before Obama gave the money to Solyndra, Obama had
already been aware of Solyndra's financial troubles. For example,
according to the company's security filings in 2009, the company had been
selling its product for less than the cost of production. In 2010, Obama
visited the Solyndra factory and cited it as a role model for his
"stimulus" program, saying "It's here that companies like Solyndra are
leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future." The
Washington Post wrote of this, "Administration officials and outside
advisers warned that President Obama should consider dropping plans to
visit a solar startup company in 2010 because its mounting financial
problems might ultimately embarrass the White House." Solyndra was a
private company, but had been planning to use its government funding as a
means of going public - so when Obama knowingly overstated the company's
condition in order to help his friends at Solyndra, he broke the same law
that Martha Stewart had been sent to prison for breaking.

686) Refused to explain why he waited two years to label Boko Haram as a
terrorist organization

In 2011, an organization called Boko Haram bombed the Abuja U.N.
headquarters. However, the Obama administration waited two years to label
it as a terrorist organization, and would not explain why it waited.

687) Falsely claimed that Republicans had "filibustered about 500 pieces
of legislation"

In May 2014, Obama falsely claimed that Republicans had "filibustered
about 500 pieces of legislation."

688) Refused to prosecute Hilda Solis, his labor secretary, for violating
campaign finance laws

In March 2012, Hilda Solis, Obama's labor secretary, illegally asked
federal employees to donate to Obama's campaign. Obama refused to
prosecute her.

689) Illegally ordered two Secret Service agents to leave their White
House post and guard the home of a top official's aide

During the summer of 2011, the Obama administration illegally ordered two
Secret Service agents to leave their White House post and guard the home
of a top official's aide.

690) Spent $194,788 to study how transwomen use Facebook

In April 2014, the Obama administration spent $194,788 to study how
transwomen use Facebook.

691) Illegally released five "high risk" Taliban terrorists

Federal law requires the President to notify Congress 30 days before
releasing terrorists. However, in May 2014, Obama released five "high
risk" Taliban terrorists without giving advance notification.

692) Under Commander-in-Chief Obama, a military deserter was given
promotions instead of a court-martial

In June 2009, private first class Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post.
Afterward, instead of being court-martialed, he was promoted to the rank
of specialist in June 2010, and later promoted to the rank of sergeant in
June 2011.

693) Falsely said a military deserter had been "captured on the
battlefield" and had served "with honor and distinction"

In June 2009, private first class Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post.
However, in June 2014, Susan Rice, Obama's national security adviser, said
that Bergdahl had been "captured on the battlefield" and had served "with
honor and distinction."

694) Commander-in-Chief Obama did not know that the letter "p" in the word
"corpsman" was silent

Commander-in-Chief Obama pronounced the letter "p" in the world
"corpsman" twice in less than a minute. For a young child who is learning
how to read, such a pronunciation makes perfect sense. But for the
Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military in the world, it is
inexcusable.

695) Referred to the Taliban Five as "gentlemen"

At 3:25 in this video from June 2014, Marie Harf, the deputy spokesperson
for Obama's State Department, refers to the five then-recently released
Taliban terrorists as "gentlemen." http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=kWQ28sUBvwE

696) Illegally invited, encouraged, and allowed tens of thousands of
unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants to enter and stay in the U.S., and
then pretended to be surprised when they showed up

In 2012, the Obama administration announced that unaccompanied minor
illegal immigrant children would not be deported.

In January 2014, the Obama administration placed an advertisement
requesting contract services to care for 65,000 "unaccompanied alien
children." The advertisement can be read here. However, afterward, when
these illegal immigrants entered the U.S., the Obama administration
pretended to be surprised at their arrival.

They are largely from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

95% of them said the main reason they came was because of Obama's new
promise for amnesty.

In June 2014, Associated Press reported:

The number of unaccompanied minors detained on the U.S. border has more
than tripled since 2011.

The migrants also uniformly said they decided to head north because they
had heard that a change in U.S. law requires the Border Patrol to swiftly
release children and their mothers and let them stay in the United States.

The Central American minors who cross the border alone have generally been
released into the care of relatives already in the U.S...

... many are reporting in calls back home that they're free to move
around the U.S.

Also in June 2014, Associated Press reported:

The Obama administration has released into the U.S. an untold number of
immigrant families caught traveling illegally from Central America in
recent months - and although the government knows how many it's released,
it won't say publicly.

Senior U.S. officials directly familiar with the issue, including at the
Homeland Security Department and White House, have so far dodged the
answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that
they did not know the figure or didn't have it immediately at hand. "We
will get back to you," the Homeland Security deputy secretary said Friday.

The figure is widely believed to exceed 40,000 since October. It's
believed to be slightly below the roughly 52,000 children caught traveling
illegally from Central America over the same period, an extraordinary
increase since last year that is driving a humanitarian crisis at the
border.

Instead of returning these illegal immigrants to south of the border, the
Obama administration made plans to ship some them to Virginia and New
York.

In June 2014, the Obama administration announced that it would give $254.6
million to the countries that sent these illegal immigrants to the U.S.
Obama was planning to reward illegal immigration by subsidizing it.
Whatever you subsidize, you get more of it. When you subsidize illegal
immigration, you get more of it.

697) Falsely claimed to have "lost" Lois Lerner's emails

In June 2014, the IRS claimed that emails from Lois Lerner (a high level
IRS employee) to outside agencies from January 2009 through April 2011 had
been "lost" when her hard drive "crashed." However, a private company
called Sonasoft had a contract with the IRS since 2005 to back up all of
the IRS's emails. The company keeps multiple and redundant backup copies
of all the IRS's emails. The company advertised itself by saying "If the
IRS uses Sonasoft products to back up their servers why wouldn't you
choose them to protect your servers?" In addition, Norman Cillo, an Army
veteran who had worked in intelligence, and who had also worked as a
program manager at Microsoft, listed six reasons why the IRS's claim about
"losing" the emails must be false. Also, federal law requires the IRS to
keep permanent, backup copies of all of its emails at an external
location. And finally, the NSA has copies of all of the emails.

698) Obama's so-called "indepentent" investigator of the Solyndra scandal
donated $52,500 to Obama's campaign

Although a so-called "independent" review said that Obama had not done
anything wrong in the Solyndra scandal, it was later reported that Herbert
M. Allison Jr., the person who had conducted this "independent" review,
donated $52,500 to Obama's campaign.

699) Gave bonuses to employees who created Oregon's defective Obamacare
website

Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website.
As of February 28, 2014, exactly zero people had signed up at Oregon's
Obamacare website.

However, in June 2014, it was reported that the employees who had built
Oregon's defective Obamacare website had been given $650,000 in taxpayer
funded bonuses.

700) Gave news organizations the secret identity of the CIA's top officer
in Kabul

In May 2014, the Obama administration gave news organizations the secret
identity of the CIA's top officer in Kabul.
