Paris & the Narrative

Make no mistake, the President controls the public policy narrative. In the apparatus of his form of totalitarian governance it is a must and the media willingly accommodates under threat of being ostracized. In the Obama-World you own only what you speak to or confess and nothing more.

Where Paris is concerned the mirror is quite reflective; the reality (Radical Islam) didn’t fit the narrative and so the Administration couldn’t be seen associated with it (not to mention the fact that a majority of leaders in attendance have little if any use for the Obama Administration).

Projected Bailout Costs of ACA

The Congressional Budget Office estimated that ACA will cost the government (that’s code for: “YOU”) $1.7 trillion over the next decade; that’s approximately $107 billion per year. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include the component of ACA that “reinsures” the insurance companies for their operating losses and considering that, to appease Mr. Obama, the companies will keep premiums as low as possible as it is quite easy to project the losses. Taking into account the various components, participation rates, premiums paid, claims-made factors and so on by 2015 the bailout would be no less than $152 billion on top of the already projected $107 billion and that doesn’t include the individual state run exchanges.
