Barack Obama: Busy Making Life More Expensive, Less Safe

Written by William Pauwels on June 3, 2014

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be issuing new rules governing climate change in the coming weeks with costs to the consumer of over 50 billion per year.

A separate report shows that 36 new regulations under the Obama Administration have increased consumer prices by $11,000. 

For example, the Chamber says the cost of proposed EPA rules will increase electricity bills by $289 billion per year and reduce disposable income by $586 billion every year.
Consumer prices will also increase. For example, the price of a dishwasher will increase by $44 according to the America Action Forum.  The price of a refrigerator will increase by $83 . . . a microwave oven by $14 . . . a home air conditioner by $320 . . . an average vehicle by $3100.  Annual mortgage payments will increase by $362.  Annual health-care premiums will increase by $108.

Needless-to-say, the tax-and-spend Democrats and Obama Administration are going wild with taxpayer money, borrowed money, and printed money ― in their out-of-control quest for centralized authority over American lives.

The dollar keeps losing its purchasing power … the government keeps printing and borrowing money . . . Obama has no understanding of micro and macro economics . . . people can’t get good paying jobs . . . Obamacare and the Veteran’s Administration is a disaster . . . America has lost much of its industrial base . . . immigrants are taking jobs that should be done by Americans . . . over-regulation is strangling American business.

Career politicians, bureaucrats and crony Capitalists are running the government for their personal benefit . . . Obama is basically an Administration cheerleader . . . government provided entitlements are destroying the work ethic . . .  education has become unaffordable . . . Obama doesn’t know the first thing about managing an organization – much less the nation.

Obama is a perpetual deceiver under the influence of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals . . . Obama is a de facto Marxist/Socialist/Liberal-Leftist with minimal commitment to the U.S. Constitution and Judeo-Christian Values and Tradition.

Obama has no effective understanding of foreign affairs or relations . . . Obama has weakened our military and national defense.

The American people have little or no knowledge of what it takes to manage our country.  They preferred a totally inexperienced schoolboy – to an experienced war hero and senator – and to perhaps the most qualified, credentialed, and proven executive in U.S. history – as President and Commander-in-Chief . . . the Constitutionally protected media has kept the American people in the dark and has failed to report and critique the President’s modus operandi and the Administration’s overall performance.

The American-Way-of-Life is being significantly transformed by the Obama/Reid/Pelosi/ Clinton/Democrat Party and Obama Administration.  America may never be the same again.
