Obama's Promises: You Can't Keep You Doctor, But Your Electric Rates Did "Skyrocket"
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 3-15-2014 | MOTUS

Well, it’s official; Barry reneged (can I say that?) on his promise that If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Period.”


Why am I getting a deja vu sensation? Oh yeah…it reminds me of something Barry said on the campaign trail back in '08:

“So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can – it’s just that it will bankrupt them,” -Barack Obama January, 2008 – PROMISE KEPT!

As you may recall, bankrupting electric companies was just 1 leg that BO promised to remove from our 3-legged energy stool:

“Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” –Barack Obama, January 2008 – PROMISE KEPT!

The three main components of Obama’s plan are:

— Get 1 million 150 mile-per-gallon plug-in hybrids on U.S. roads within six years.

— Require that 10 percent of U.S. energy comes from renewable sources by the end of his first term – more than double the current level.

—Reduce U.S. demand for electricity 15 percent by 2020.

So, if I’ve got this right:

  1. First you replace gasoline demand for transportation with electric demand, thereby increasing overall electricity demand.
  2. Provide huge federal grants/loans to large campaign bundlers to create more expensive “clean” wind and solar energy that nobody really wants and – ultimately – nobody actually makes.
  3. Simultaneously announce your commitment to reduce the overall demand for electricity by 15%(!?!)

I’m not a mathemagician butt that seems to add up to, at best, a sluggish economy.

Butt overall, I think we can mark energy “policy” down as one of Big Guy’s “promises kept.”


Now if we can just get the do-nothing congress to pass that carbon tax, we can whack off that third leg too.

Hopefully, having delivered on his energy policy promise will take the sting out of breaking his promise that "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period."

If not, let me remind you of another promise that Big Guy has delivered on:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” –Barack Obama October 30, 2008

Maybe it’s time to acknowledge that - on average – we’ll all be much better off if Big Guy doesn’t keep any more of his promises.

Here’s the tally so far:

1. Healthcare- costs double and care rationed
2. Internet control - going yo the UN
3. Fuel prices going up
4. Energy prices going up
5. No jobs
6. Car purchases require a 2nd mortgage
7. Housing prices are falling
8. California is running out of water
9. Russia is pulling a Hitler conquest of former soviet satellites
10. Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya are still in chaos
11. Israel, our only ally in the ME, is being threatened by Obama
12. NSA is spying on EVERYONE.

I can hardly wait for the 2014 elections.

Food and fuel prices have skyrocketed.
Main drain on most peoples budgets.
These get ignored by his media.
This is intentional impoverishment by a bunch of rich democrats who want to be in charge of a declining country.

F them all and I really hope they end up like the elites in France in 1790. A good haircut for the lot of them.
