Photo of President Obama Celebrating Iran Deal with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani

 News out of Switzerland today has US President Obama claiming a deal with Iran as a victory for his Administration. Below is a photo of the two leaders celebrating.

According to the Deal, Iran gives up basically nothing. The US in return unfreezes $7 Billion in Iranian funds.

Keep in mind that it is not the US that made Iran a dangerous State. A recognized and internationally sanctioned State Sponsor of Terrorism. We now have a President who not only green-lights running guns to drug gangs in Mexico, but is now the World's number one Iran Sanctions violator.

For that, President Obama is our Idiot politician of the Day. Not that he isn't every day....

UPDATE: ObamaCare - If a Corporation Did This, People Would Go To Jail

Back in March (ObamaCare - If a Corporation Did This, People Would Go To Jail) I noted that if private corporations did what the Government was doing with Obamacare, that the Government would go after them for criminal activity. The basis of my argument was the dodgy financial justification the Democrats made for passage of Obamacare in that it would save the country and citizens billions of dollars. In reality, the savings were always an illusion at the real expenses were hidden in the years after the Government's ten year accounting review. Corporations however are not permitted such accounting gimmickry.

Now that the HealthCare.Gov website is proven to be even more of a disaster than expected and given the millions of health insurance cancellation notices that Americans are receiving, others are making the connection that President Obama's Democrat Administration is openly behaving in a way that would result in criminal prosecutions had they acted this way as a private business.
President Obama’s oft-repeated falsehood, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” — something the administration knew was untrue — would almost certainly be a textbook case of deceptive advertising, punishable under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, which prohibits “unfair or deceptive acts or practice in or affecting commerce.” This includes a “representation, omission or practice that is likely to mislead the consumer,” such that the consumer would be “likely to have chosen differently but for the deception.” - Andrew Stiles, National Review
The article also notes that the HealthCare.Gov website provides in many cases very inaccurate insurance cost estimates, by design. Go read the whole article. Also read my initial post on this subject which covers the financial lies that were used to pass Obamacare in the first place. All of this should be remembered when the next election comes around.

UPDATE: I Told You So: 'Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care'

I noted back in 2009 when the Health Care debate was going on that 'What they are not telling you is that once they have stuck us all with more expensive 'free' health care, they are going to grant all of the illegal aliens not only legal status, but also citizenship. And with Citizenship, they will surely get free health care.' (Link) This prediction was confirmed later in 2009 by President Obama himself:
Simply put, this is how Democrats can claim that no illegal aliens are going to receive US Health care, because they plan to legalize all of them:
President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.- FFI
 Now we have Idiot Politician of the Day, Democrat Congressman Jared Polis from Colorado oddly declaring that the problem with Obamacare (as if there is only one) is that Obamacare does not cover illegal aliens.
Illegal immigrants are one of the few categories of people in the U.S. who aren’t subjected to Obamacare’s individual mandate requiring all people to have health insurance coverage. They also aren’t eligible for taxpayer subsidies to buy insurance on the health exchanges, nor are they supposed to be getting assistance under Medicaid.

But Mr. Polis said leaving them outside of the health mandate means that they end up using emergency care, but don’t end up paying their own bills — leaving the rest of the country to pick up those costs. - Washington Post
Of course what he does not explain is how most of the illegal aliens in the country if legalized will be net takers of the system.Worse, many 'legalized' illegal aliens would not purchase medical insurance, instead taking advantage of the system in much of the same way as they do now. As it is, they have access to free health care for their children. When I was living in DC, I had asked the doctor, how come they do not have to pay a co-pay like everyone else? The response was that if they had to pay ANYTHING, they wouldn't bring their children to the doctor. Good luck getting them to pay anything legalized or not. Legalization will just increase how much money the Government gives them each month...
